Alexander Macris wrote this excellent essay the other day at Substack. The most important part is below.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably right-of-center. But perhaps you feel safe from repressive tolerance because your view are so, well, gosh-darn tolerable. You obviously don’t advocate right-wing violence. You’re not a racist or misogynist or homophobe or bigot. You just want America to have a healthy free market, a strong military, fair trade, low taxes, equality of opportunity, and protection of every citizen’s constitutional rights. You’re just a mainstream, moderate, right-of-center conservative!
Do not fool yourself into believing that because you are a moderate, you are safe from the doctrine of repressive tolerance. Herbert Marcuse explains that the plan is:
withdrawal of tolerance from regressive movements before they can become active; intolerance even toward thought, opinion, and word, and finally, intolerance… toward the self-styled conservatives [Tactics] would include the withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and religion, or which oppose the extension of public services, social security, medical care, etc.
Anyone who opposes any extension of public service, social security, or medical care, or who supports freedom of religion, is to be completely and utterly deplatformed. No freedom of speech, no freedom of assembly, no communication in word, print, or image.
This is the plan; this has always been the plan; all that has been lacking were the means to effectuate the plan. Those means are now at hand. If the President of the United States can be silenced, anyone can be.
And what happens if conservatives resist having their voices suppressed and repressed? Well that’s a problem that requires a solution. And as Herbert Marcuse explains:
[The solution] may require apparently undemocratic means…
I will leave it to the reader to ponder what sort of “undemocratic means” might be justified to solve the problem of conservative thought, opinion, word, action, or being.
The paradigm of Repressive Tolerance explains why Empire and its Thralls act in so hypocritical a manner. They believe that their enemies are existential threats that must be slaughtered if they cannot be subjugated. As they see no reason to co-exist with existential threats, they see no problem in treating those threats as things or animals and not as people; it's pure In-Group/Out-Group psychology wearing the trappings of political and moral philosophy. Carl Schmidt--someone they avowedly hate--would be proud.
That's what Repressive Tolerance is: a scheme for sifting Friend from Enemy, and then punishing the Enemy until said Enemy ceases to be an Enemy.
Now that we see the masks flying off, we see this quote playing out at the speed of Id.
Listen to the justifications. It's always about an Existential Threat narrative, and the justification is all about nullifying that threat as best they can. This also extends to all of the doxxing of those that attended the D.C. rally, including those ratted out by their own children (as per the 1984 quote, which the rats see no problem with) and friends. The pressure tactics against employers have returned, with predictable results.
Remember those Wu Flu lockdowns killing off small businesses across the economy? This plays into the Repressive Tolerance paradigm. The businesses most likely to pick up those fired for their politics are small businesses, and not Big Corporate; kill them off until, at most, a handful remain that the Thralls can control and now those disemployments can not only stick, but actually do the intended damage and have the intended effect.
Cutting off access to infrastructure is the same idea. Wrongthink? No banking for you; no banking means no medicine, no housing, no food, etc.- especially after all phyiscal currency is removed and only digital payments are accepted. (This, by the way, is why you must resist all attempts as going cashless at all levels.) The lockdowns are a dry run.
I will note that this has happened to every country that, formally or otherwise, had a commitment to Freedom of Speech and diavowed Blasphemy as an offense- in other words, to a country that abandoned Christianity due to the Enlightenment. "Repressive Tolerance" is nothing more than an inversion of the praxis of Christianity, making it Satanic. This is Empire, and it is by the sin identified by the Supreme Dark Lord Vox Day that it begins to worm its way to what we see now.
This is why they begged for freedom of speech in the first place. To put themselves in a position where they could deny it to everyone else. They demanded the toleration of evil so that they could eventually refuse to tolerate good. The Sin of Jeroboam leads invariably to the destruction of the nation that is foolish enough to commit it.
Empire must fall.
