|Chapter Thirty Five of An Ecstatic Loneliness: The "Progressive Vision" for the Future
By Michael Moriarty
The Boston Marathon Massacre is now, of course, a symbolic part of this era's increasing disregard for human life. I'm saving my thoughts about April 19th in America till next week.
Why? My deadline for this article is April 19th, 2013.
George Bernard Shaw certainly had his two cents to throw into even our Third Millennium's growing nightmare.
Many decades before this year's slaughter on the streets of Boston, however, George Bernard Shaw's "scientific" vision, the presumptions from a "man-of-the-stage", a socialist, a "Fabian" no less!
Here is a glimpse of GBS at his socialistically royal worst.
"Different people (not just Jews and Gypsies) needed to be killed!"
In college, a homosexual Shavian intellectual tried to "befriend" me and now, in retrospect and after 50 years in the theater, I realize it was this man's adoration of Shaw more than his homosexuality that frightened me.
I once suspected that this gay intellectual's scholastic brilliance was because of his high intelligence.
No. His high grades in college came from having, instinctively mind you, the same political tastes as those of his professors.
Woody Allen has also indicated his preference for dictators.
The dictatorial fraternity of comedians.
Shaw and Allen.
With events like the Boston Marathon Massacre, these two entertaining lovers of dictatorship might get their way. Nothing like Reichstag Fires and wholesale bombings to further empower some not-very-nice and not-even-very-funny people. I'm obviously not talking about either Allen or Shaw.
Socialists in power. How people forget that Nazi stands for German National Socialism.
The Progressive Vision!
Here are the truly "great minds" on the "population problem".
The whiz kids of the Third Millennium, "giants" of the Progressive New World Order, men like David Attenborough and his belief that "humans are a plague on earth."
Yet the "insufficiency" of most human beings, the "Man and Superman" idea? It is certainly as old as George Bernard Shaw and his heroes: Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin.
Now, however, it is impressively and disturbingly clear that both Stalin and Mao had a legendarily successful hand in Rainbow Genocide as the only solution to Man's major problem of survival.
Is it authentically Man's problem of survival?
Or is it Marxism's in-bred terrorism?
The latter explanation would justify the growing love affair between "Progressives" and Radical Jihadists.
Now that Marxists – Putin, Obama and the Beijing Politburo – run the three greatest and most powerful capitals of the world – Moscow, Beijing and Washington D.C. – the now, almost one hundred year-old, tightening grip of Communism on the world has made the prospect of Holocausts by dint of World War IIIexceedingly more appealing… at least to the Marxists.
"It's an ugly job… but someone's got to do it, right?"
When comedians like Woody Allen start applauding prospective dictators, not even Charlie Chaplin's socialist satire on Hitler seems sincere anymore.
As far as I'm concerned these Socialists are all beyond "too clever by half". They are now, instead of "deconstructionists", "depopulationists".
Most of the human race is obviously too boring for their genius to put up with.
Voltaire described these monsters as "Enlightened Despots". That was almost three hundred years ago.
The "Enlightened Despots" are now more ubiquitously in the halls of power than ever before!!
As with Hitler, Stalin and Mao, these "Progressive Geniuses" have become their own brand of "Socialist".
Maoist, Stalinist or Nazi Socialists.
All a bit different but all of them in major debt to Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin.
The inevitably hellish "good intentions" of two, diabolically kindred souls: Maximilien de Robespierre and Karl Marx.
Despite appearances, the French Revolution still hasn't ended. Its heads still keep dropping into an infamously Progressive "Commune's" Community Organizing wastebasket.
Or other body parts onto the bloodied streets of the Boston Marathon.
A Muslim version of the French Revolution?
And, for awhile, we we're ordered to not even call it terrorism?! How about "scientifically justified depopulation"?!
