The Czar pays attention, for the most part, to the emails and tweets he receives, and notes with some smug pride that many of you have come to appreciate his long-standing observation that the spontaneous rioting that occurs in cities hosting international events features well-organized rioting by the same folks. The Czar has written about this three different times, and appreciates how many of you have caught on to this under-recognized bit of law enforcement reality.What infuriates the Czar is the mainstream media’s incessant Quest for the Motive. What causes people to be anarchists? What triggers mob actions like the anti-Trump riots outside the Republican National Convention? What prompts young men to murder police officers in cold blood, and makes Black Lives Matters close off streets and highways? Ultimately, what motivates people to become anarchists?
Let the Czar explain a key point to you: anarchy is ironically the least chaotic political event he can imagine. All of you know the key idea behind anarchy is ἀναρχία—the absence of leadership. But the Media fails to comprehend (or perhaps does and denies) that none of this is anarchy: it’s organized, planned, and guided by very experienced hands.
In other words, anarchy, at least as we see it here in the United States, is carefully led by intelligent leaders. It’s not an anarchy at all—you want anarchy, look to Somalia, where small tribes of competing interests ebb and flow to the detriment of structure. What you see in America today is straightforward Leftist revolt—like the Haymarket affair of 1886, the Weathermen Underground in 1969, the King riots of 1992—which are all connected by the Leftist need to destroy social structures.
Leftists are not anarchists; in fact, they are the polar opposite: totalitarians. Now, the Czar does not mean to suggest there is some monocled George Soros-like bald genius stroking a white cat while plotting the timeline of the next strike, as a multiracial and multi-ethnic consortium of local leaders nod approvingly. In fact, the directives are hazy at best, and even unintentional.
To understand this idea better—a vague collective of Leftist revolt—we can look to no less than Vladdy Lenin, whose team mates helped coin the immortal phrase «полезные дураки» (though it’s not clear Lenin himself ever used the phrase): “useful fools.” The term was originally used to describe Polish nihilists who, while they weren’t expressly communists, were very good at causing destruction and damage that helped communism spread further. In other words, while they might not be explicitly helping us, they’re sure making things easier, so let them continue.
Black Lives Matter is a perfect example of this idea, some one hundred years later. Entre eux, the leaders of BLM would probably bristle at the idea that they could be mistaken for national socialists, but by striking against the law and order required in a capitalist constitutional republic, they further the cause of Leftism. Want proof? Progressive liberals,who are straightforward leftists, are expressing solidarity with BLM and encouraging them in their imaginary struggle. Why? Because it costs Leftists nothing to sit back and watch BLM introduce chaos in as many places as they can at one time…chaos, of course, for which only a leftist can provide a solution: progressive liberalism! See, these poor black kids (noble savages, really) are too ignorant to fix their concerns through normal channels, and require liberal progressives to shepherd them to obedient safety, and all that. Like they did in 1968 and later.
And no better example of Useful Idiots are the people murdering police officers. No, BLM isn’t orchestrating this horror—which should be unimaginable in 21st Century America—but hey, these individual fiends are inadvertently promoting Black Lives Matter. Every time one of them laughingly exterminates a blue-clothed husband and father, a BLM representative is called onto a national news show to express disgust. BLM’s leadership likely winces every time a cop is killed, but the idiots behind it sure are useful to their cause. And the sad fact is that, like a Soviet Russian doll, BLM is helping the cause of progressive liberalism, which in turn helps Leftism. Useful idiots, all the way down.
So who is behind all of this? There’s rarely one individual, but there is a Gestalt of smaller groups each taking advantage of the other’s misdeeds to further their respective ends: just as the Jacobins began in 1789, Saint-Simon’s social utopians in the 1820s, the Communists in the 1840s, the social progressives of the 1890s, the Soviets in the 1910s, the Fascists in the 1930s, the radicals in the 1960s…and well, you get the idea. Useful idiots, all the up, too.
