[From "The way through to the other side of the left singularity"]
We continue to move left, faster and faster. But trees do not grow to the sky, nor do they stabilize at some limit. They grow till they fall over. Leftism will not stabilize. It will suffer radical collapse, the question being, how soon, and how many of us will it kill in the process. We have been down this path before, many times. We are now at the stage that preceded the civil wars in Russia, Spain, and France, and the coup in Chile. If we lose the civil war, then, as in France and Russia, the red terror, unless a Cromwell stabilizes things before the red terror. Usually a Stalin or a Sulla stabilizes things after the red terror, rather than before, taking advantage of the precedent set by radical leftists to deal with radical leftists.
For us to win, Harvard, Yale, and the Judiciary will have to be cancelled, deplatformed, and demonetized. The prosecutorial system will have to be depoliticized, which will require removing most existing prosecutors to the gulag. It has to become as dangerous to be too far left, as it is to be too far right.
I was in Davao when Duterte was mayor. His death squad solution was hugely popular. I did not see anyone opposing it, except people who probably needed killing.
Once Harvard and Yale is rolled up, the schools will roll up. We have seen abrupt changes in the line before. Another abrupt change in the line will hardly be noticed. Every Academic everywhere will chant “Four legs need guidance by two legs” with the same enthusiasm as every academic everywhere formerly chanted “Four legs good, two legs bad”, and scarcely notice that their chant has changed. I have seen it happen before, it can happen again.
