Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. – Psalm 91: 14
Life is inherently tragic because we are mortal men who must die, yet we have intimations of immortality. But life becomes even more tragic when those in authority, the principalities and powers of this world, work to destroy the unbought grace of life. Such is the case in Shakespeare’s King Lear, when Lear turns his kingdom over to his evil daughters, and such is the case in the modern European nations ruled by the minions of Satan, who make Lady Macbeth, Goneril, and Regan seem like mild lambs in comparison.
This coronavirus crisis was born in the war laboratories of the Chinese communists, and it is being spread by their liberal allies in the Western nations. To oppose the spread of the virus by restricting travel to China or to suggest any kind of restrictions on immigration is to oppose all that is liberal and ‘good.’ It will not be permitted. What is there left to discover about the liberals? They, like Smerdyakov in the Brothers Karamazov, believe there is no God outside of their own intellects. So everything is lawful if they desire it. And what they desire is the destruction of everything good, noble, and honorable. Every remnant of that which was our glory, our hope, and our comfort, Christian Europe, must be destroyed. This latest liberal assault, the coronavirus crisis, has been a very, very successful gambit. It has destroyed small white businesses and further isolated whites from each other, making them even more dependent on the federal and state governments. Right now the crisis appears to have no end in sight, because the Democrats in the U.S. Congress are resisting any financial or medical aid bills unless they include all sorts of liberal agenda items, such as more funding for abortion, in the bills. And in Britain and Canada, the powers that be refuse to place any restrictions on foreign trade and travel, even in the face of an ever-widening circle of disease. The liberals are the demon-possessed swine, and they are determined to take thee and me over the cliff with them. They might get their way in terms of ‘this world only’ – they might get our bodies – but will we save our souls? “That,” as Hamlet says, “is the question.”
The liberals have no differences with the Chinese communists because they are of one accord with the Chinese communists. N. G. Chernyshevsky’s book, What Is to Be Done, was studied by Lenin, who sought to put the principles described in the book into practice when he became head of communist Russia. Chernyshevsky asserted there was no essential difference between a plant, a mineral, an animal, or a man. Any view contrary to his view was part of the “prescientific era” and was self-evidently false. After placing man on the level of a vegetable, Chernyshevsky then goes on to tell us how reason, man’s reason, unfettered by the unscientific Europeans, will build a paradise on earth. Can mere vegetable and mineral matter really build a heaven on earth? And if that could be done, how can minerals and vegetables enjoy themselves? But Chernyshevsky’s ‘scientific’ viewpoint has become the liberals’ viewpoint, and it remains unchallenged in the Western world. Certain logical consequences of that viewpoint are rejected by more conservative-minded liberals, but the scientific determinism of the modern liberal-communist ruling elites is never challenged.
The liberals have taken Chernyshevsky’s vision of man into the 21st century. And they have forged that vision, which is really a vision of the unmen, into a fighting faith that has no room for the God who took flesh and dwelt among us. How can there be a place for Christ within the confines of an ideology that says we are created in the image of vegetable matter?
The coronavirus crisis is the liberals’ payback for Trump’s election. The white grazers, by voting for Trump, revealed they did not want to go quietly into the night, they wanted to be part of Liberaldom. That was not acceptable to the liberals, because white people represent the unscientific era of man’s history, the era when men did not realize they were vegetables. You cannot take people with such an unscientific past into the future. Even if the white grazer repudiates his past, which tragically he has, the white grazer will not be allowed into the future. He cannot be trusted to annihilate himself, so the liberals have been forced to step up the annihilation process. Won’t many of the liberals be destroyed by the virus as well? Yes, some will. But the liberals do not care about their fellow liberals either; they have no genuine feelings for anything human. They have progressed beyond humanity, to the higher scientific phase of the unmen, that of creatures who have no humanity.
Even if the death tolls of the coronavirus do not reach the levels the liberals hope for, the crisis has been a liberal success. The liberals have destroyed many small, white, independent businesses, and they have shown the white grazers their power. (1) Oppression works, particularly when the people who are being oppressed have no strong faith to sustain them against their oppressors and inspire them to launch a counterattack. That has been and continues to be the subject of these wars. The white grazers have no love or respect for the liberals, but they do fear them. And without a strong faith, they will not be able to overcome their fear of the liberals. They will appease them in all things in the hope that the liberals will withhold their wrath. It won’t work – it never has and it never will. Liberalism is from the devil, and the devil cannot be appeased; he hates humanity and the God who loves humanity. “There shall be no mercy,” is the devil’s credo, and it is the credo of his liberal minions.
When Burke wrote his anti-Jacobin salvo, he managed to persuade many of the European intelligentsia to condemn the Robespierre Jacobins. Only a small remnant, men such as Kingsley and Price, and later, Hilaire Belloc, remained Robespierre Jacobins. But Burke was never able to convince the European intelligentsia that the Jacobin ethos would remain in Europe so long as democracy was the new ‘God word’ throughout Europe.
Dostoyevsky also warned the West of the dangers of Jacobinism in its Marxist guise. He had less success than Burke — there were very few members of the European intelligentsia who were willing to condemn communism when it reared its satanic head in Russia. It was always the Czar and Christian Russia that were attacked. And right up to the 21st century, the first century since the Europeans first committed themselves to Christ that has begun under the auspices of a religion opposed to Christ, the liberals have always considered the communists their brethren while they view all those who oppose the communists as their enemies. And they are right, not morally right, but right in that they know their spiritual counterparts. They all believe as Chernyshevsky believed: “Blessed be the unmen, who are no different from vegetables, minerals, or animals. Blessed be our abstract reason, which shall lead us to paradise, when the unscientific Christians have been purged from the face of the earth.”
I hold with Pastor Grundtvig, the great Danish poet, who said that any theologian, be he Protestant or Catholic, who emphasizes man’s sinful nature to the exclusion of what is within man that bears the image of God, is from the devil. If you deny that there is anything worthy of redemption in man after the Fall, you denigrate Christ, you make His incarnation and subsequent crucifixion and resurrection from the dead a mockery, because Christ saw men as worthy of redemption. He loved us. I have heard the ‘hard guy’ theologians speak, and I cannot see any difference between the religious ‘hard guys’ and Chernyshevsky. Man becomes mere vegetable matter in both ideologies, and abstract reason, illogically divorced from sinful man, becomes all in all. If we are governed, in church or state, by illuminated minds detached from the human heart, we will always be viewed as vegetable matter, easily disposed of, without any regard for such unscientific concepts as mercy and love.
When I look at the food lines and the deserted streets of our new coronavirus-afflicted world, I can draw only one conclusion: The liberals have made the transition from a war of persuasion to a war of destruction. They are forcing the white grazers to submit to liberal authority through sheer force, the force of germ warfare. This war was inevitable once we left Christ out of the European drama. If charity and mercy, His charity and mercy, are unscientific, then, “Humanity must perforce prey upon itself like monsters from the deep.”
Monsters indeed! Yeats asked “What rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?” It will not be the benign, intellectual paganism that Yeats hoped for. It will be the real beast, it will be Satan. The fruits of liberalism are before us. The liberals’ brain child is mankind’s ancient foe. The coronavirus germ warfare is just one more onslaught of the devil. We must think in terms of the Psalmist:
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
That psalm has always been a source of strength to the Christian Europeans. But it is so unscientific, and haven’t Christians throughout the centuries cited that psalm in vain? Haven’t they died from the arrows that flieth by day and the pestilence that walketh in darkness? Yes, they have. Still there is that vision of Christ on the Cross. He loves us and the liberals do not. To whom then do we turn?
“None but thee, Lord, none but thee.”+
(1) It is the ‘democratic’ governors who are closing down white businesses by imperial fiat. Many of those businesses employ white males who are living paycheck to paycheck. They do not live on welfare checks nor do they make a living by robbing and stealing. They need to work. And most of the work they do does not put them at risk for the coronavirus. But thus far they have not been able to persuade their governors to let them work. Why? Because the coronavirus has allowed the liberals to govern us as Chernyshevsky wanted vegetables and minerals to be governed. “You bid me seek redemption from the devil,” Isabella tells the Duke in Measure for Measure. And so do we ask redemption from the devil when we seek for mercy and fair-dealing from our liberal overlords.
