The ‘Secret Forces’, as Catholic writer Atila Sinke Guimarães describes them, are those that I referred to in recent posts as ‘They’, the shadowy ‘elites’ who are supposedly pulling all the strings behind the scenes, making everything happen.
In this essay, (H/T Thinking Housewife) he discusses the Brexit vote, and describes how he thinks it fits into the context of ‘Their’ plans for Europe and the world.
I believe that England’s exit from the European Union may lead to the World War III. Let me elaborate. Anyone who follows international politics knows that the Secret Forces want to establish the One World Order, the Universal Republic. The UN agenda is the prototype of this ideal: a socialist government ruling over all the peoples on earth who will be transformed into a single type of brown man, the result of the mixing of all the races.”
This much is common belief among many on the Alt-Right or the ethnonationalist spectrum. Many people in the West would, despite mounting evidence in favor of these beliefs, scoff at what they call ‘conspiracy theories’ or paranoia.
In the past I have defended the idea that there are in fact conspiracies, and that conspiracies are known to have happened throughout history. So I still can’t understand why people who pride themselves on their intelligence and education sneer at any mention of a conspiracy. Are they really prepared to defend the idea that conspiracies are a myth altogether, that they never happen? That people can never get together and collude in some kind of plan or goal? Really?
It should not even be necessary to argue the fact that people have conspired, do conspire, and will conspire.
Having said that, though, it’s possible to become too suspicious of everything, and to see hidden hands and sinister plans behind everything that happens. For instance, many people on the right have now come to be quasi-pacifists because they believe that all wars, I mean all wars are the result of ‘hidden forces’ duping everyone into fighting because of money or power. This presupposes that there is not innate aggression in many if not most human beings. Obviously people on an individual basis often come into conflict with neighbors over the most trivial matters, and violence occasionally ensues. History tells us of family feuds, clan feuds, tribal warfare, many conflicts on a small-scale basis. Sometimes these things escalate into something bigger. This is just fallen human nature. It isn’t necessary to believe that evil arms manufacturers, or greedy banksters, or power-hungry dictators are behind the scenes pulling the strings in every human conflict. No doubt it has happened, but some human conflicts happen without sinister puppetmasters controlling the combatants.
To believe that every human ill is caused by conspiracies or shadowy elites is to attribute almost superhuman power to such people and groups. And to suppose that they have such a phenomenal success rate in shaping events, so that they are behind every major event or disaster, is to make them seem omnipotent.
As with this Brexit vote, I’ve been reading many comments from British folk online, and amongst those who have nationalistic leanings, there is a lot of second-guessing, a lot of doubts about whether or not the vote will extricate Britain from the clutches of the EU. There are many comments from people who wonder if the ‘leave’ vote is in fact what the powers-that-be wanted, that it was somehow some kind of reverse psychology move, some kind of psyops thing, and that voting ‘leave’ simply played into Their hands. “Now they have us just where they wanted us,” so some comments said.
This kind of doubt, confusion, and suspicion actually works in favor of the ‘powers-that-be’; in fact, that’s the purpose of much disinformation put out by the governments and their media arm. The goal is to confuse, confound, and muddle people’s thinking, to make them so suspicious and cynical that they don’t know what to believe. And the upshot of this is that people often become more passive, more defeatist, and more resigned, thinking that ‘it doesn’t matter what we do or don’t do; ‘They’ are one or two steps ahead of us, controlling the outcome.’
Again, that attributes more power and knowledge to these shadowy ‘elites’ than they may possess. Unless ‘They’ have some kind of supernatural ability to see into the future they cannot predict with 100 percent accuracy what the outcome will be; there are to many variables, too many possible unintended consequences of their ‘best-laid plans’, too many random chance occurrences with surprise outcomes.
That being said, I don’t disagree with a lot of what the author of the article states. There are obviously powerful, wealthy, influential and secretive groups manipulating our societies. It does seem as if they have a monolithic regime which is working to the same plan all over the world, most especially in the West, in Christendom, and in White countries. There are times when my spirits fall when I contemplate what a complete stranglehold they have on the media, on our educational system, and of course in government in all Western countries.
So will the Brexit vote lead into a World War? Nobody can know that. And to believe that it would likely do so would cause many Europeans to hesitate to work towards a similar EU exit plan for their countries. The EU and whoever controls them want people to hesitate, and become paralyzed with doubt, so that they accept the status quo.
But I refuse to believe that our enemies (they have declared themselves our enemies) are as powerful as many are making them out to believe. Little is certain in this world except change, and things cannot continue along their present course indefinitely.
Above all, to become fatalistic is tantamount to surrendering, admitting defeat. Carried to an extreme, pessimism and fatalism amount to cowardice.
