Our Darkening Hour

Our Darkening Hour, by Paul Collitis.

Some time back the estimable James Delingpole of The Spectator and Breitbart News lamented that while the various forces of the Left fully comprehended they are fighting a war, the various forces on the right do not. Never were truer words spoken. What, then, are these wars? …

First, there is the war that must be won against political correctness …

Second, there is the war against environmentalism …

Third, there is the war between Islam and the West. …

Fourth, there is the war against the Administrative State. …

Fifth, there is the war between globalism and nationalism. …

Finally, there is the war on truth. This is the biggest of them all. …

What Churchill could count on was a united and angry populace who, when the fashionable pacifism of the Nineteen “I will not fight for King and country” Thirties was negated by the appearance of an enemy with no such reservations, committed to the fight with heart and soul — “blood, sweat and tears”, as he put it. They identified an enemy, decided they didn’t much care for him and his designs on their lives, and committed to giving him better as they got.

Who do we have manning the barricades today? Justin Trudeau. Macron. Merkel. Theresa May. Jean-Claude Juncker. Turnbull. The Davos set. The UN. Pope Francis. Mark Zuckerberg. Oprah (no surname needed there either). Prince Charles. These are the figures that flit across the world’s TV screens and its collective frontal lobe, mouth their platitudes and move on to the next sound byte, their pronouncement’s on Islam’s amity or the wickedness of cheap power seldom questioned by a media imbued with the same views, the same agendas, the same presumption that projected virtue can trump the precedent of history. Just how they never explain. These leaders, so called, are almost to a man or woman, batting for the enemy by word and deed and silence. The worst of them of them actively collaborate and work against the interests of their own people.

He hasn’t even mentioned the global debt and money crisis, building since 1982 and briefly breaking out in the GFC of 2008. It won’t dominate the news until markets bust and depression looms, but when it comes it will completely alter the landscape.
