Lost but making great time.

So, what is all this Nothing-ness about? ‘My view’, says Scruton, ‘is that what’s underlying all of this is a kind of nihilistic vision that masks itself as a moving toward the enlightened future, but never pauses to describe what that society will be like. It simply loses itself in negatives about the existing things – institutional relations like marriage, for instance – but never asks itself if those existing things are actually part of what human beings are. Always in Zizek there’s an assumption of the right to dismiss them as standing in the way of something else, but that something else turns out to be Nothing.’[1]
Ecstasy.
The title of this piece is the punch line to the apocryphal story of the WWII American bomber crew in the Pacific. Queried as to its location, the pilot replied, "We're lost but making great time." Thus, the destroyer of the left race to their Shangrila of destruction. They are dead set against Western civilization, capitalism, patriarchy, marriage, the military, white political dominance, and the rule of law. On that they are total agreement. What matters is being against white society. However, they have zero concern for what happens on Day 1 after the Glorious Revolution.

Our ultra-left destroyers are lost and, worse, lost in direct proportion to the stridency and arrogance of their moral posturing and to the impenetrability of their manifestos. Rape culture? White privilege? Offensive speech?

Say what?

It's all about pulling down the hated now and NO other consideration applies. Not even decency. When the grandeur of their indignation and the thrill of the arsonists and the mobs dies down, when the AntiFa thugs are handed police uniforms at last, all that's left is charred ruins and nothing more. A wasteland.

Leftism victorious.
