Some people think we are crazy to worry about ultra-Lefties taking over the government and slaughtering right-wingers and other dissidents en masse. Not here, they claim. Not in America. This is just wishful thinking. It can happen anywhere, and indeed, radical, widespread, relatively sudden violence by the state against its own people has happened all over the world. No race, nationality, or religion is free of such behavior, though in the last century the majority of it was carried out in an expressly nonreligious fashion. This type of violence often follows on the heels of radical shifts in culture and governance. The bad news is that we are going through just such a period of social upheaval and political shuffling, and by the same type of people responsible for most of the mass slaughters of the past century. The good news is, this is entirely avoidable and the types of regimes who do such things typically do not have a lot of staying power.
When we consider genocides and mass murder by government, we most often think of the events of the twentieth century. Stalin’s gulags, Hitler’s concentration camps, Mao’s purges, Pol Pot’s “reeducation,” and so on. Libtards are more likely to think of the Trail of Tears. We often forget incidents from the more distant past. This is in part due to our shitty collective memory, our third-rate historical education, and the fact that people rarely bring up these instances because they do not fit a narrative. Consider the Albigensian Crusade in France, or the horrific crimes committed against the South by the Union army. Governments are more than capable of executing violence against their own people on a mass scale when those in power find a portion of the population too difficult to govern, or sufficiently different from them in values, lifestyle, or ethnicity. This occurs when government has different goals than the people, and/or when government is occupied by hostile forces that differ from the people. Sometimes, alien populations are able to take control of the government either directly or by proxy. In such cases, they use the government’s monopoly on violence to subdue the elements of the population hostile to their agenda.
With that in mind, keep in mind that massive societal changes can occur rapidly. The abolitionist movement picked up steam rapidly, with the Civil War occurring barely a decade after the Missouri Compromise and less than a decade after Bleeding Kansas. Tehran was once the “Paris of the Middle East,” with Iranian women going to university and wearing mini skirts. The Shah was overthrown and the mullahs swept all that away in rapid fashion. Hitler and the Nazis came to power in 1933, and never even got half of the popular vote (though they did get a plurality). By 1939, the groundwork for the Holocaust was in place, the T4 Program was underway, and German tanks were rolling into Poland and France. Twenty years ago, the concept of gay marriage was foreign even to homosexuals; many did not just think it was impossible, they did not even want it. The entire definition of marriage changed in that time. In perhaps the example most relevant to us, The Turks swept away Sharia at a rapid clip under Ataturk, only to see it return under Erdogan. Massive societal change can happen in the blink of an eye.
Many people are also content to let society go to hell in a hand basket because they think it is too far gone. This is wishful thinking as well, the wishful thinking of the lazy and the yellow-bellied. Just as there was massive upheaval in the 1960s that created sweeping changes in terms of social programs and attitudes, a similar wave could occur that reverses it. Indeed, there are indicators that we in the early stages of such a renaissance, but we may be too close to it to recognize it. Be ready, because when things reach critical mass there will not be time to stock up on ammo or build a network; these things have to be ready to go so that kids’ textbooks are authored by our people, and talk about how America regained its soul from the precipice of evil.
