After the downfall of Hitler, conservatives abandoned all of their organic principles and focused on the idea of making people obey an ideology of conservatism, which makes no sense since as a realist philosophy, conservatism is the opposite of an ideology, or a symbolic dogma.
They were so eager to prove themselves “not Hitler” that they turned themselves into Leftists. In fact, almost all criticism of conservatives boils down to the idea that they are not distinct enough from the Left, forming a uni-party or deep state that simply perpetuates the Leftist bureaucracy.
In contrast, the Left constantly advances because it is a cult which has a messianic Utopian core, the Big Lie of equality, which both explains all failings of its members as a lack of equality, and makes them believe that with equality, a new age of humanBasically, this is the same pap that they have been preaching since the pompously-named “Enlightenment”: reality is not what it obvious is, instead, we can live in this symbolic, emotional, and social state of mind where everyone is important!
Conservatives lost to this for two reasons:
1. They were not dramatic enough. Democracy is about manipulating huge groups of stupid, selfish, and ignorant people. They react to emotions and symbols, not facts and logic.
2. They were not desperate enough. Leftists are self-destructive and do not care if they get shot, so are willing to roll the dice and risk riots, revolutions, and crimes.
How do you counter a fanatical audience that, like the Mongols, attacks with abandon, sacrifices its members willingly, and always retreats instead of confronting a superior force? enlightenment will dawn.
