The importance of Daniel Patrick Moynihan–and why he was discarded

The left can’t tolerate the truth–they want their ideological bullshitting to be dominant, and the obeisance of the benighted masses.

Moynihan was a brain with humility–and he was always searching for the truth–which is why he showed that liberal “solutions” were just plain wrong. That is the ultimate sin in a totalitarian state, run by the nomenklatura, the oligarchy, the ruling class.

How the socialist statists became so powerful here and abroad–a story

The “March Through the Institutions” became the Marxist/Leninist strategy after the hoped for revolution was defused by the progress of human welfare during the industrial revolution.

The Creation of a middle class was one of the big reasons socialists couldn’t pursue their uprising strategy, so they moved on to infiltration and sabotage of traditions, mores and institutions.

We now have a socialist Pope and a socialist POTUS, for example, so they have done well.

The linked essay below explains the rise of socialism very well and the most important players and strategies.
