People often think that direct democracy is the government that we should have, yet these people cannot make time for voting. What compels them? The spirit of the age — a kind of impatience fused with unthinking anger and the desire to “do something”. That this devolves into “do anything” is readily apparent once you collect a group of angry people.
History reminds us of what happened to free blacks in the pre-Civil War North, what happened to Jews in czarist Russia, what happens to Christians and protesters in Egypt, and on and on. The mob has no soul, and those who want to take power into their own hands almost always lack any sort of discipline necessary to do anything valuable. Instead, the mob breeds a kind of individual irresponsibility and anonymity. How exactly did you think the brown shirts and Mao’s Cultural Revolution worked, anyways?
From another angle, if people are forbidden to organize themselves on the basis of shared interests peaceably (IRS/Tea Party scandal), then what remains but either government-sanctioned groups or groups who do not assemble for peaceable interests? It is surprising that the penchant for mob violence has abated since the election, but it is never far, ready to be stoked and built into something awful. Obama did the same thing during his tenure, as he let urban violence spiral out of control, hoping to recreate a summer of ’68-style cultural transformation. The Parkland shooting is a direct result of Obama’s policies. Instead of punishing those who broke the law, he and his programs encouraged the local and state governments to look the other way. That this creates the very problem that the left uses to seize more and more power is predictable. After all, some mobs are more equal than others, and they know best, so they say.
What mobs thrive on and use for great effect is a principle called “terror via numbers”. A mob is the weapon of choice for the left and for the totalitarian fascist alt-right. In the end, whomever can be made to kneel will be made to kneel before the Baal of government power. Oh you may not care now; you may think the sufferings of other people baking or manufacturing armaments or refusing to agree with the professor or not wanting to date “transsexuals”, but you will be made to care. In the cultural war, there are no innocents and if you are not with the left or the alt-right, they will gather their mob and demand horrible things from you.
Yet in America, things are only beginning to bubble. South Africa is an example of the cauldron at full boil. If the black mobs succeed in making the country unsafe for whites by declaring open season on white farmers (it is a racial hatred thing there), then the lesson will be painted in blood on the world stage. Zimbabwe was not enough. No, the mob must take the successful, the Western, murder any who oppose them, and leave their country a charnal pit of waste and death. The numbers do not look good for those opposed to the murdering mobs in South Africa; approximately 9% of the country is white, and 70% are blacks who support murdering whites.
If South Africa falls, then the fight comes here in earnest.
All hail the mob.
