It's very simple, really.
A word came into my head today; 'Scientism.' Scientism is the dominant ideology in the Western world today.
The suffix 'ism' signifies that this word is describing the principle under which society ought to be organized. For example, 'Communism' means that
society ought to be organized into communes; 'Monarchism' means that society ought to be organized under the rule of one person; 'Fascism' means that
society ought to be organized into a tight community serving a common purpose; et cetera.
means that society ought to be organized according to the wisdom of Science. Scientists regard science as the sole legitimate source
of practical and intellectual guidance in this world. There is a hierarchy among scientists, with those at the top of the hierarchy possessing the
strongest authority on all matters of science. The highest professors of science pass down decrees about what does and does not constitute science,
and their loyal followers take up these new creeds eagerly. This hierarchy is both formal and informal, as there are some Scientists who belong to
Schools, and some who belong to no organization. Those Scientists that belong to Schools are the most popular and widely known, and so they have the
greatest authority in Sciencedom. Effectively, professors are priests in the church of Science, which has locations around the world and is
represented at Universities, Colleges, High Schools and Government. A society that is organized according to the wisdom of Science will be a
The connection to the modern 'Progressive Movement' in Anglo-American politics is clear. Progressives seek to organize society according to the most
efficient, organized, and well-balanced methods of government. They promote reproductive rights, eugenics, genetics, psychology, 'reform' of
criminals, social insurance, and much more in an attempt to create a society that is as productive as possible.
The word Progressive signifies the real function of the movement and the various Progressive parties around the world. Progressivism aims to organize
society around the principle of Progress
; gradual, deliberate change.
The Progressive Parties of the world are trying to create a radically different society from the one that we are familiar with. They are trying to
stage a massive, absolutely penetrating and total revolution, one that leaves no thought unturned, no custom unravelled. Their goal is to erase all of
our history, so that we can begin anew in the utopian society that they intend to create.
What distinguishes the Progressives from other totalitarian ideologues is their dedication to Liberalism. Communists were anti-Liberal; they did not
desire a society organized around liberty. Italian Fascists were anti-Liberal; they wanted to organize society according to the principle of martial
unity. German National Socialists were anti-Liberal; they wanted to organize society according to the principle of race. Only the Progressives sought
to protect liberty in their utopia.
To this end the Progressives have been attempting to manage society and our democratic institutions. Progressives are aggressively anti-bigotry, and
have little to no tolerance for prejudices of any sort. Even innocuous misconceptions are not tolerated in a society that has become increasingly
anxious and self-doubting as a result. The Progressives aim to eliminate any and all impediments to equality, they aim to eliminate all disabilities
so that society can be born again, in an egalitarian state of brotherhood and liberty. They are extremely severe in pursuing these goals; liberty is
the last part of their revolutionary program, instituted after the enemies of the revolution have been destroyed. Science is the main tool of the
Progressives in their revolutionary program to remake society into an enlightened Republic ruled by a technocracy
It is no mistake that Progressivism has been described in a way that echoes the language of the French Revolution. The French Revolution was itself a
massive campaign of rapid social change. It replaced the Ancient Regime with a society that treasured those immortal values; Liberty, Equality,
Fraternity. It initiated an entire nation into the secret cult of the elites. Replacing the Catholic Church with the Temple of Reason and the Temple
of the Supreme Being, the Revolutionaries taught Rationalism
to the emergent proletariat of Paris.
The ordering of society according to the principle of the intellect. The Cult of Reason taught to the Parisians the value of
education, and of knowledge-power. It liberated their bodies for ever by liberating their minds; it taught them that they could be free, and no King
was ever able to repress them again. It taught that all men have equal access to the truth, that they can pursue truth under their own power, without
recourse to priests or gods. It taught them that the secrets of the divine dwelt within themselves. It taught them that they were Little Kings.
Progressivism as a political program in the 20th and 21st century is a slow wave of the French Revolution. It is also the broadest wave of the
Revolution, having encompassed the globe and insinuated itself into every corner. It is the French Revolution at its highest crest. It is nearing the
completion of its quest for global reach. It is eroding the resistance of Communist China, and breaking into the last 'rogue nations,' nations that
refuse to open themselves to liberation and Liberalization by the Progressives. When that moment occurs, if it occurs, then the New World Order dreamt
of by Revolutionaries will come to pass. The Five Superpowers of the United Nations will assert themselves as the Directory of the world government,
as they will finally be united under one banner. At that time, the institutions of the post-Revolutionary status quo will be installed. No matter what
happens next, no matter who emerges as the supreme executive power of the world government, the Revolution will be secured on a global scale.
The global revolution is, I think, inevitable. However, it is not inevitable that the Progressives shall win it. Other parties may win. It is up to us
to decide whose side are we on, but first we must decide what we want to govern society. Do we want society to be ruled according to God? According to
money? According to justice? According to liberty? According to equality? According to fraternity? According to unity...?
If you side with the Progressives, and you desire a perfect, technocratic democracy, then the Cult of Science is your friend. The Cult of Science is
but one of the many cults that belong to the Church of Reason.
If you side with freedom, then you ought to support the Cult of Liberty. This cult also belongs to the Church of Reason, for Reason and Liberty cannot
be divorced from one another.
Science is the means through which the technocratic, perfect democracy is possible. Progressives are the only social movement today that is moving
towards a defense of liberty. Do not fear their scientism; they worship Reason above all else but they do not have to be your enemy. They are agents
of Lucifer, the enlightener. If you hate Lucifer, then you hate also the fruits of his Cults. If you hate Lucifer then you hate Liberty, and
Democracy, and Reason, and Science. Think carefully before you take up arms against Him.
