Hey There Everyone I Came Across A Very Interesting

piece over at a website called The Conversation It’s a title Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump’s success in exploiting the rise of nationalist Christianity was written by a professor of race faith and culture Yes. There is such a thing over at the University of London and it’s a piece that’s all too typical. I would say of the kind of medium mell town that we’ve been seeing of late the website itself. The conversation from what I can see it markets itself as an academic website, but it appears to be little more than a secular globalist echo chamber and the article itself is just one cliche after another in many respects. But I think the article is a fascinating window and how secular liberal globalist continue trying to make sense of this increasingly post-secular post-globalist world and.

In So Doing They Just Fall Flat

they they fail. Our basic argument is a rather tired one conservative Christians in the United States and Russia have abandoned their pursuit of personal piety for political power and they don’t care who they have to support to get it. They will side with a murderous former UK dictator. On the one hand and the Philandering billionaire playboy on the other and in the process they’re destroying the integrity of their faith and indeed their respective nations as well. Now this isn’t original.

Its An Argument Thats Been Made Over And

over again over the last couple of years. We can actually see this critique going back to the rise of the moral majority in the Christian Coalition in the 1980s, Christians are no longer interested in personal piety in church attendance of being the moral conscience of the nation and now. All they want is cheap political power and they’ll sell their souls to get it now. This kind of media rhetoric obviously intensified with the candidacy of Donald Trump, but regardless it’s not original. I don’t know why another bit of an information on cyberspace is being wasted on it, but alas here we go more the same from the same old globalist secular professors from the same old cultural Marxist campuses that have done far more damage to Western society that intentionally so by the way over the last 30 or 4 years than any redeemable good now to bolster her argument are our good professor.

Here Notes A Couple Of Things.

One populist party supposedly invent a past golden age for their religion and culture in order to galvanize people to fight against the evil globalist barbarians of the gate who are trying to invade their civilization and. wipe their culture off the face of the earth? How did you points to Putin’s romanticizing of the the baptism of Prince Vladimir a thousand years back as part of his justification for an x ng Crimea so that’s her first justification a populist reinvent history around a mythical golden age for their cause, and secondly, she notes that these defenders of a supposed Christian civilization rarely if ever attend church, and she cites the rather low church attendance rates in Russia under 10 percent, and that makes it an odd comment that attendance rates are going down in the United States, as well which they’re not church attendance rates have remained constant in the United States for last 40 years, but nevertheless, and all of this is supposed to be proof that this Christianity is a thoroughly like political nationalism. It has absolutely nothing to do with personal piety and humility and charity.

It Has Only To Do With Accumulating Cheap

political power to be forced down the throats of an unwilling wider population Now, what should we make of this thesis? We’ve talked about it before and I see the same old problems with it. I I think this kind of reasoning is part of a wider phenomenon. We’re calling on this channel the media meltdown which I’m seeing as a forum. It kind of cognitive dissonance right so cognitive dissonance is when a person cannot accept it. It cannot accept something as true which is true, but they also don’t have the ability to refute it and so they just can’t accept it and when they try to give reasons for not accepting it.

They End Up In Little More

than self–defeating banter right We’ve also likened this. medium meltdown to the five stages of grief in that they after denying that things like the brexit or the Trump presidency or the collapse of the UK could ever possibly happen or that they’re just fads or flukes. Since of course, we’re inevitably moving forward into a brave new world where secular liberals have total and complete power and globalization is the unstoppable force that will that will keep them forever and power the end of history well now they’re lashing out they’re coming to terms of the fact that they’re globalist world is collapsing that we are indeed entering into a post-globalist World Order and they’re angry they’re upset how can we these we simpler proletariat’s, how could we ignorant Lis vote these wonderful and lightened liberals out of power doesn’t make any sense well kind of amusing to watch their their antics here, but let’s think. about this argument a bit more closely first the reason Christians are supporting the likes of Seiya Trump or Putin is emphatically not because they’re hypocrites or solely interested in worldly political power any other completely unsure and frankly condescending simpleton reason like that and there’s no reason for a supposed academic to appeal to such slander and that’s because it’s been documented in detail by a line of scholarship. One that she completely seems oblivious to but a significant line of scholarship that’s detailed the rise of what’s being called the global religious right over the last thirty years or so and what the literature D tells us how the religious right is there began rightly to see globalization as entailing social processes that were inherently threatening to the historic Christian faith.

Globalization Does Entail Whats Called Deep

traditional izing dynamics that threaten the integrity and the future sustainability. of not just the Christian faith but indeed all historic religious faiths? I mean, there are plenty of globalist scholars who acknowledge that the secularization thesis, the idea that the world was going to become less and less religious and more and more technological and globalists That was the dominant thesis in the social sciences. For a century and so and so conservative Christians and religious were absolutely right in seeing secular globalization as an existential threat to the integrity and the sustainability of their faith and so in light of such a threat. Why would they not align themselves with politicians who share the same sense of threat who share a common globalist enemy. It doesn’t have a shred to do with chucking personal piety for political power.

It Has Everything To Do With

the very survival of the integrity of that personal piety, but the second shall we. Say Inconvenient Truth that our good professor ignores when she asserts that populist are inventing mythical golden ages to rally supporters for their cause which ignores here is that such golden ages or appeal-precisely because of the death of globalist Golden Age mythology. In other words, the mythology, the inevitability of progress and liberal democracy and UK and and human rights and lifestyle values has largely collapsed and this is because it’s it’s modernist roots. The roots of scientific rationalism as the sole true way of understanding. All of reality have basically rotted out and so the death of modernity is the one true way of understanding reality with the death of modernity zone Golden Age mythology populations have begun to turn inward for the basic frames of reference for life.

So Life So Populations Are Turning

toward nation and culture and tradition and language and land and custom and ethnicity as a basis for a sustainable so shorter in the absence of a grand one-size-fits-all modernist globalist meta-narrative and so the irony here is that those who constantly lecture us on how liberal democracy is the hope of mankind of how globalisation promises to give us unbridled freedom and economic prosperity, How science and technology are going to save us from disease and the catastrophes of global warming I find it so humorous that such propagandists can’t see that they themselves are the ones propagating apathetic and self-infatuated Golden Age Myth that more and more of the world’s population want nothing to do with know what what populist movements are doing is they’re simply rehearsing their own cultural narratives their own national stores their own triumphs and tribulations completely respective. Traditional anti-national anti-border anti-religious sentiments of liberal globalists and liberal globalist Don’t like that they love they love their myth of their own golden era that promotes a worldview that that that they invent not the ones that have sustained cultures for thousands of years. No those are ignorant and bigoted and and and homophobic and intolerant we can’t have those no. The the liberal globalist mythology it’s golden age has died or it’s dying its modernist roots have certainly died and now populations are turning toward their own culture and tradition as a basis for sustainable and an indeed humane social order and so. Conservatives and Christians Conservatives and Christians rightly recognize liberal global globalism as a threat to the integrity and sustainability of their beliefs and their way of life and they rightly side with those public figures ready to defend such and indeed defeat globalism.

First And Secondly, Its The Globalists Who

are the purveyors of mythical Golden Age rhetoric, which is routinely now being more and more rejected by populations throughout the world who were turning to their own customs and traditions and narratives as the basis for a rich and humane social order and thirdly center of this renewal of culture and nation is of course the religious tradition of the nation and that’s what’s really behind the rise of Christian nationalism. Christian nationalism is not just a cheap attempt at political power that’s certainly the way globalists think about it because they see their own political power more and more eroding all. over the world? So of course, they’re gonna think that way and talk that way but Christian nationalism is rising throughout Russia and Eastern Europe, Central, Europe, United States even the Pacific with Samoa recently declaring itself a Christian nation. Christian nationalism is rising precisely because globalism is fading. This is what globalists just don’t seem to get with the with the death of the globalist.
