Everyone wants people to feel like they belong. Where a person is excluded from society, then each person in society should do what’s appropriate to include them.
For example, in the early 1990’s laws were passed in Australia to ensure that the disabled were provided with adequate means of access to businesses (e.g. ramps, disabled parking spots etc.). These were legal and structural improvements and everyone agreed.
What actions are appropriate to encourage a sense of belonging? Unfortunately, this varies drastically according to ideology.
Everyone wants people to feel like they belong. Even Mao Zedong wanted this. In the introduction to a recent podcast entitled: Mao, Criticism, and Unity, Dr. James Lindsay writes:
“Mao Zedong wanted to brainwash the whole Chinese population and he had a formula for doing it: ‘Unity – Criticism – Unity.’
That is, he sought to induce in people a “desire for unity” so they would join his socialistic cult, and then once that desire was strong enough, criticism and struggle sessions would begin to cement adherence.
Finally, through criticism, struggle, and study, unity with the socialist cult would be achieved.
This model of cult programming might sound remote, but it isn’t. It’s the backbone of what we all experience in the American Cultural Revolution in DEI, ESG, SDG, and unconscious bias training at work and SEL at school. We’re told we want to make ‘safe’ places where ‘everyone feels like they belong,’ which initiates the ‘desire for unity’ under the banner of ‘Belonging.’ Then there are criticisms and struggles until there’s solidarity with the Woke worldview, causes, and people pushing it.”
In this brief (13 min) podcast, Lindsay states that:
(2:45) The goal is to make them want to join the cult first. That can happen in a number of ways.
You can exert pressure … You can call them “deplorable,” you can try to exclude them from voting, you can call them “conspiracy theorists” … you can exclude them from certain aspects of society. You can force them to wear masks you can force them to take injections.
[Say to them] “Why do we have to fight all the time? Because you keep saying racist stuff. If you would just check your privilege and if you could become an anti-racist then we could get past this. If we could all come together and have a DEI workshop and uncover your unconscious biases … we could have better group harmony.
(4:05) So, the desire to belong or the desire for unity is the beginning of the cult indoctrination. Once people have the desire, Mao explains, then you begin criticism and self-criticism, what the Chinese called “struggle.” After this is study, or deep cult indoctrination.
(7:20) Dr. Lindsay recently had the opportunity to speak with the President of the University of Oklahoma about DEI training underway there. The President stated that “he just wants a university where everybody feels like they belong.”
James summarised what DEI training actually is:
(7:38) Equity is Socialism; an administered political economy with redistributed shares such that citizens are made equal. But instead of just wealth and material capital it’s now redistributing shares of social and cultural capital. It’s an expanded version of socialism that’s facilitated by diversity, which is the hiring of political officers; so-called experts in diversity. People who understand the ideology … [with a] critical consciousness. A consciousness … of race in general and their role in the dynamic. So only activists are qualified. These are political officers. Diversity is the hiring of commissars to achieve equity which is socialism.
So, diversity and equity go together. Equity is the goal of socialism. Diversity officers become the commissars who lead you there and then inclusion is the excuse by which people who don’t fit in are going to be removed.
From Dr. Lindsay’s Translations from the Wokish:
“Inclusion, in the general sense of the word, means to welcome everybody (in context: into a particular space). That is, to be inclusive is not to exclude anybody. Inclusion, in a Critical Social Justice sense, refers to something subtly different that extends that idea in a particular way. It means to create a welcoming environment specifically for groups considered marginalized, and this entails the exclusion of anything that could feel unwelcoming to any identity groups (see also, safe space). This is because everything in Critical Social Justice must be understood in terms of systemic power dynamics that it theorizes characterize all of social, if not material, reality.”
In order words,
“All” does not mean “All.”
I’d now like to focus on one of the more horrific aspects of woke inclusion.
What is appropriate when people feel like they don’t belong and are told that they need medical care to help them belong. Should that medical care be demanded by law? What if these people feel like they have the wrong gender? Should they be given “gender-affirming care”? That is a huge issue today.
According to GLAAD, “the word ‘transgender’ is an umbrella term used for ‘people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth.’”
According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC): “Gender-affirming care, as defined by the World Health Organization, encompasses a range of social, psychological, behavioral, and medical interventions “designed to support and affirm an individual’s gender identity” when it conflicts with the gender they were assigned at birth. The interventions help transgender people align various aspects of their lives — emotional, interpersonal, and biological — with their gender identity.”
However, conservative parents in the USA are irate that current laws permit school staff to provide gender-affirming care to students that identify as “transgender.” These laws also prohibit parents from intervening, essentially removing parental rights. Although not mentioned in the AAMC article, children are often provided with genital mutilation surgery and puberty blockers which causes irreversible physical and mental damage.
From this NY Post article:
“Dr. Riittakerttu Kaltiala is Finland’s leading expert on paediatric gender medicine and chief psychiatrist at its largest gender clinic.
Having presided over youth gender transition treatments for more than a decade, she says four out of five gender-questioning children eventually accept their bodies if no medical interventions are carried out.”
Parents protesting to their State representatives has resulted in new laws that ban gender-affirming care in 12 of the most conservative US states.
There is a huge divide between left and right on this topic. The left claim that if States ban gender-affirming care, those “transitioning” will be excluded from society. In response, conservatives claim that children are being brainwashed by leftist educators, social media and hospital systems that see gender-affirming care as a huge money-maker. Videos show Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) doctors bullish about future earnings stating “and the female-to-male bottom surgeries, these are huge money makers.” The doctor continued, adding that such surgeries could bring in “up to $100,000” for the hospital.
JP Sears presents the information in a less “clinical” manner.
The left is now spreading Trans-genocide fear-porn among the Trans community as they did to all during COVID. They make dangerous claims, that through new State laws, conservatives are causing a rise in the number of trans people being murdered.
On Monday 27 March, a transgender person murdered three children and three adults at a Nashville Christian school that the shooter formerly attended.
Conservative commentator Jack Posobiec interviewed Libby Emmons of the Post Millenial on his 29 March 2023 Human Events Daily podcast to discuss the situation further (starting at the 4:20 min mark).
Neither a toxicology report, nor the murderer’s manifesto have been released by the FBI. These are essential to determine motive. Instead, all the left wants to do is to ban guns.
Emmons studied the backgrounds of the Trans victims in this HRC study and stated (from 18:00 min mark) that most died due to domestic violence, drug or sex crimes and not from any conservative-driven “trans-genocide.”
The left’s violent rhetoric is now encouraging Trans people to rise up and arm themselves; to kill or be killed. The Trans Day of Vengeance was planned for April 1 but after the Nashville murders, it was eventually cancelled.
It would appear that the shooter knew the local pastor’s daughter (one of the three children murdered and possibly, targeted). Manifesto?
Josselyn Berry, the Press Secretary of the leftist Arizona Governor, Katie Hobbs posted this image as a tweet. She was forced to resign soon afterward.
Whatever happened to “Love is Love’? Sadly, it would appear that when it comes to Marxists, the Slippery Slope argument is not so crazy after all.
For those who are interested, Jack Posobiec just interviewed two people who are de-transitioning. They tell their stories in this 2 April 2023 podcast.
Oli London has written a book about his ordeal, while Chloe Cole is suing Kaiser Permanente (Healthcare system) over the loss of her organs.
Trans-gender Inclusion, as a major component of of woke Marxism is a cult and Trans people as being used as pawns. Do you need more evidence? In this brief clip from the Outsiders, Rita Panahi explains how:
(0:20) Instead of politicians and legacy media issuing messages of solidarity with the Christian community – the actual victims of this mass-shooting – they were instead expressing support for the Transgender community.
(1:35) [Although they represent less than 1 % of the population, Joe Biden said that]
“Transgender Americans shape our Nation’s soul – proudly serving in the military, curing deadly diseases, holding elected office, running thriving businesses, fighting for justice, raising families, and much more.”
(2:00) [Joe Biden’s Press Secretary Karinne Jean-Pierre inverted perpetrator and victim when saying] “It is shameful, it is disturbing, and our hearts go out to the Trans community.”
(2:15) Madonna will be donating some of the proceeds of her next concert to the Trans community in Nashville.
(2:50) We saw how violent the Trans community could be in Australia and New Zealand at the “Let Women Speak” rallies.
At least there is a counter in the USA.
(3:40) Virginia politician Winsome Sears defended parents and the Christian community on Liberal Bill Maher’s program and even drew applause from the crowd.
Conservatives in the USA are fighting back but Australian politicians won’t even have the debate. Rita says “they’re too gutless” apart from a select few.
History of Marxists sexualising children
Marxists are attempting to further destabilise the West with “Transgender Inclusion” as a major weapon.
In this article, Dr. Lindsay declares:
“For those people who know much about Marxism, they know that this is a deliberate program that Marxists have employed, since at least the 1910’s starting in Hungary, to try to sexualize children, to cause sexual and gender confusion, so that they become political activists on behalf of some other agenda.”
György Lukács – Hungarian Marxist philosopher, writer, and literary critic who influenced the mainstream of European communist thought in the early 20th Century.
Trans-gender dysphoria (which is recognised as a mental disorder) is amplified by Marxist activists warning Trans people to defend themselves against a fictitious bogey-man. James Lindsay has been claiming for months that the left is attempting to orchestrate a “Drag Floyd” moment. That is, similarly to when George Floyd was killed by police while being arrested, Lindsay claims that someone will eventually attack a Trans person and ignite another series of riots and anarchy within the powder-keg that is Joe Biden’s America. The left is doing all they can to provoke conservatives into violence.
Here Dr. Lindsay reprises a recent panel discussion:
“On the stage, I warned that the program called “Drag Queen Story Hour” and the other drag performances in front of children are a strategic, escalating provocation that, when combined with growing narrative arcs like “rising anti-LGBTQ hate” and “stochastic terrorism” foreshadow a “Drag Floyd” event: George Floyd but with a drag queen or trans person being attacked. This, of course, would be a major strategic win for the Woke Marxists, so it must not happen!
Do not give them Drag Floyd!”
We must understand this for what it really is. This is a spiritual battle. This article: The Gnostic Roots of Trans Movements summarises it well.
Cult indoctrination has deluded those with some form of mental health issue that God and the doctor made a mistake. Through the alchemic process of negation, the Trans person can “do the work” to remove the mundane, eventually revealing a shard of the divine. Anyone standing in the way is evil.
The notable New Testament theologian N.T. Wright writes:
“The confusion about gender identity is a modern, and now internet-fuelled, form of the ancient philosophy of Gnosticism. The Gnostic, one who “knows”, has discovered the secret of “who I really am”, behind the deceptive outward appearance …. This involves denying the goodness, or even the ultimate reality, of the natural world.”
The beliefs of the Judeo-Christian West and woke Marxists are poles apart. No wonder the violent rhetoric.
An Appropriate Response
Christians have been persecuted in the past and will be again in the future. They must be on guard against spiritual forces and physical attacks that are likely to escalate.
Christians cannot give the left their desired Drag Floyd moment. Rather, there must be a commitment to legal forms of protest to protect children and to pray for the souls of Transgender people who are suffering under the great delusion which is woke Marxism.
Here is some sage advice from Dr. Lindsay. From the article: CRT, Queer Theory and Marxism by any other Name, he writes:
“It’s extremely important to understand Marxism on this general level so that what we’re dealing with around us in the world can be properly understood, called out for what it is, and prevented from achieving its ultimately destructive goal of seizing the means of production of anything, especially Man and History. Understanding these “theories” for what they really are not only allows us to call them out accurately and understand why they must be stopped, but it also allows us to be strategic in our fight against them because it enables us to easily predict their next moves and to delegitimize their manipulations as quickly as they arise. Failure to understand them this way means continually being taken off-guard, losing, and being manipulated, or—more accurately and through the inversion of their praxis—being exploited, estranged, and disenfranchised from our own societies.”
This final sentence represents the ultimate goal of Inclusion – to exclude from society anyone not radicalised by the cult.
What time is it?
In 1947, sociologist Dr. Carle Zimmerman wrote a text called “Family and Civilization.” He identified eleven ‘symptoms of final decay’ observable in the fall of both the Greek and Roman civilizations.
75 years later, how many of these characterise society?
1. No-fault divorce
2. “Birth dearth”; increased disrespect for parenthood and parents
3. Meaningless marriage rites/ceremonies
4. Defamation of past national heroes
5. Acceptance of alternative marriage forms
6. Widespread attitudes of feminism, narcissism, hedonism
7. Propagation of antifamily sentiment
8. Acceptance of most forms of adultery
9. Rebellious children
10. Increased juvenile delinquency
11. Common acceptance of all forms of sexual perversion
If each of these represents an “hour” of civilisation, are we now at the “eleventh hour”?
