America was established by settlers who constructed small townships, with town halls and churches in line with the archetypical Athenian-polis. What we understand is unique about New York City would not apply for the Iowa farmer, so different are both states, respective cities, economies of scale and cultural dynamics. Conservatism places its highest premium upon the cultural narrative, avoiding ethical violations of local security leading to public instability.
Dr. Peter Critchley credited both Pericles — a traditional aristocrat — and the son of a wealthy arms manufacturer named Sophocles with constructing the model for the earliest form of popular democracy by reconciling “the various elements of freedom, public and private, with each other for the greater good.” Thus public and private freedoms remain the clashing forces which narrate the struggle balancing human behavior with natural law consistent with Isaac Newton’s third law of energy and conservation (“With every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction”) that define the eternal struggle between the political Left and Right. Thucydides explains in his account of The Peloponnesian War civil democracy’s foundation was “… each single one of our citizens, in all the manifold aspects, is able to show himself the rightful lord and owner of his own person [e.g. “self-sufficient”]….” A functioning democracy cannot survive by forcing freedom onto men to eliminate all personal dependence as Jean-Jacques Rousseau advocated in The Social Contract. Socialism violates this right to self-ownership, regulates the body that God provides each individual, who in turn has right trespassing on another’s shares or health.
Austrian economist Murray Rothbard, the intellectual giant of libertarianism and its key plank Anarcho-Capitalism, opposed the state “because it has its very being in such aggression, namely, the expropriation of private property through taxation, the coercive exclusion of other providers of defense service from its territory, and all of the other depredations and coercions that are built upon these twin foci of invasions of individual rights.” And while Rothbard rightly asserted “Rights may be universal”, the critical — and correct — connection must ensure “their enforcement must be local.” Hence, Locke’s concept that government exists solely to settle disputes over private property (“the rule of law”) remain the best hope for a world with the least popular, most minimalized possible distortion of natural law, where justice serves to conserve liberty, but never confiscate it. Thus, Athenian democracies, applying similarly conservative principles, will only manifest if its citizens “meet danger ‘voluntarily, with an easy mind, instead of with laborious training, with natural instead of with state-induced courage.”
STRATAGEM #1: INFILTRATION OF GOVERNMENT INFRASTRUCTURES AND LEFT-WING PARTIES
Political propaganda is only disseminated through mass communication mouthpieces in the media and public education. Not coincidentally, politics and popular culture are natural bed partners whose survival is impossible without this symbiosis. That the Left employs covert intrigues was best described by the founders’ of Britain’s Fabian Society reverence for group’s namesake, the Roman general, Quintus Fabius:
“For the right moment you must wait, as Fabius did most patiently, when warring against Hannibal, though many censured his delays; but when the time comes you must strike hard, as Fabius did, or your waiting will be in vain, and fruitless.”
Fabian co-founder Sidney Webb expanded on the Fabians’ ruthless method, unchastened by any moral standard, “absolutely untrammelled by party, or sect, or creed. Its general attitude… will endeavour to bring to light and to appreciate in a wide catholic spirit all those features in other social projects or movements which can be recognised as making for progress.” The Fabian imperative was to ideologically subvert and indoctrinate civil society through through cultural permeation, which playwright and Fabian co-founder George Bernard Shaw noted, “is one of permeating — we urged our members to join the Liberal and Radical Associations in their district, or, if they preferred it, the Conservative Associations — we permeated the party organisations and pulled all the strings we could lay our hands….” The policy of permeation for the early Fabians worked so well that soon, politicians from all parties were influenced. In short, the Fabian Society sought to build socialism applying the strategy of “Sovietism by Stealth” —because to ideologically subvert a nation, the process must be the indefinite and total domination of the popular cultural, educational and military narratives.
Conservatives must reverse the progress of socialism by repressing its avenue for communication constitutionally. Applying a political “checkmate” triggering a full re-trajectory to our republican foundation and Judeo-Christian principles, henceforth known as the “Criss-Cross” method, seeks to achieve what late Soviet KGB agent and defector Yuri Bezmenov described as communism’s ultimate weapon: ideological subversion. The process begins by aggressively attacking the current social malaise from multiple angles as a sustained, permanent chain reaction while campaigning for liberty-minded constitutional conservatives during election years.
STRATAGEM #2: FCC Media Blitz — The “Criss-Cross” Method
“In judging policies, we should consider the results that have been achieved through them, rather than the means by which they have been executed.”
— Niccolo Machiavelli, in an undated letter to Piero Soderini
“The means must justify our ends.” These words, echoing the common theme of Niccolo Machiavelli’s works, must be fully understood by conservatives opposing all which the Left supports. It is absolutely critical to learn, to understand the Left’s line of thinking by learning to psychologically assess its central theme — sex, the driving force behind “social Darwinism” — and to know the Left, our enemies, better than they do themselves. Specifically, conservatives must focus on the following:
- In defeating our foes, we must ruthlessly employ them as our pawns in a political game of chess. They will not be our knights, nor should they.
- Keep our allies close, because our foes will take care of themselves.
- Engage in each operation with only the best intentions.
- Employ political operatives well-qualified at acquiring insider knowledge while maintaining the leadership’s plausible deniability over any botched operations, particularly those performed illegally, since the think-tank must never directly involve themselves with those covertly applying the means to achieving the objective.
- Do unto others before they do unto us. While conservatives must act on principle, they must never permit their principles to prevent their ability to achieve the greater good when the opposition is poised to do great harm.
- Never lie, but be vague as possible until the time is right to reveal the element of surprise.
The stratified nature of these indirect coordinated contingencies must leave as little tracks traceable to their source as possible.
