Domestic Turmoil

THE FOUNDING OF THE UNITED STATES was unique in history as the first nation formed on an idea, as opposed to strictly regional, ethnic or religious boundaries. This idea, encoded in our Constitution, includes freedom of speech, freedom of belief, protection of private property, and right to due process (among many others). There is a growing set of groups within the U.S. mobilized to erode or abolish parts of our Constitution, and to remake the country in a very different image.

Rewriting History to Fuel Division

Ideas, particularly impassioned ones, fuel determined action. And so, a cornerstone of Marxist strategy to seize power has been to rewrite history, reframing it specifically to mobilize one group against another: man vs. woman, black vs. white, rich vs. poor. Then, once unrest destabilizes society, predatory leaders seize power from a scared populace to quell the unrest they themselves fermented. This revisionist tactic has been employed over the past few decades in the U.S. to inspire, and justify, social upheaval, following the Marxist playbook.
