‘What were fifty years ago the three most prominent non-leftist institutions in the world—the Roman Catholic Church, the United States of America, and the British monarchy—are now explicitly in the service of the left. And the conservative movement itself is now explicitly in the service of the left.’
The only thing I would haggle with is the idea that the United States was ever a ‘conservative’ institution. America has been a revolutionary state for most of its existence, being held back only by the Christian faith of the South, and after 1865, until Bolshevik Russia appeared, America was the trend setter in progressive thought and action, perhaps the only other radical state would have been republican France. It’s odd that America is in hindsight regarded as ‘conservative’! That is only a modern idea, I think, I wouldn’t think British, Russian, German or Austrian aristocrats would have considered America conservative in 1910.
But the main argument made by Lawrence Auster is correct, Every surviving institution from the ‘old days’ is an instrument of the left, and for conservatives that is a problem. Being conservatives, we naturally wish to see the continuance of that which is tried and tested, but, the values that these institutions now push, are the values of our enemies, so do we reject these institutions?
The universities, which used to send reliable Tory MPs to parliament, were pillars of the old order, and are now a part of the new order. Do we reject the universities? Do we set up our own? I do like the thought of setting up an online university, as is already happening, this could be used to begin new universities, or could be kept online.
The Army in Britain and now the US seem to be completely co-opted into the new order as well, I’m sure individuals can be conservative, but if you wish to climb the ladder of promotion, you need to brown nose and proclaim one’s fealty to the negro and paki. It is the same in the police forces, they are no longer on our side, they are the instruments of the enemy.
Is there any institution that has not been co-opted?
The churches have been taken over, the schools, the media is obviously in their hands, the Monarchy is a puppet, that regularly parrots the multi cult line, all of our institutions and constitutions have failed us and have been and will continue to be used against us.
I fear the only way to fight these things, will result in the abolition of everything we are familiar with. But I suppose that is exactly what a few long-term thinkers amongst our enemies were thinking.
