You heard it here first, but we are in the first year of a new age. History is replete with “ages”: the Persians, Greek philosophy, the Roman Empire, Christianity, the Crusades, the Dark Ages, the Reinaissance, the age of revolution, and now Conservatism: the winners of history.
The age of revolution began in 1762 with the publication of French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s The Social Contract. That book placed forth the notion that governments owed a duty to their citizenry: to feed, clothe and provide basic needs to them. The average human no longer owed fealty to a monarch. The monarch, or government,m now oed a certain responsibility to his citizenry. Previous “benevolent” Kings may have done this on their own, but Rousseau’s thesis was that they owed this duty.
Thus was born revolution. In America, a revolution not based on Rouseau’s thesis but on the rugged, individualistic relationship of man with God, but in Europe a philosophy based on the idea that “huddled masses” were incapable of taking care of themselves unless the government did it for them.
Throughout the 19th Century, as Alexis de Tocqueville pointed out, the American philosophy was winning, but in the 20th Century two world wars, while won by the U.S., making us an empire stronger and more powerful than all previous political entities, the European model took root.
This concept was fought tooth and nail by the forces of American conservatism, but always it was a struggle. Europe, its empires destroyed, weighed down by centuries of baggage – racial hatred, inquisitions, genocides, religious intolerance, reformations, world wars – lost all vsitige of greatness. We stood alone.
The election of Barack Husein Obama in 2008 led pundits to declare conservatism to be over. Incredibly, the truth is the exact opposite, Obama’s election marks the beginning of a worldwide conservtive age.
Reaction to Islamic Jihadism, the realism that”global warning” is a hoax, and the steady understanding that European Socialism is a failed model has led to riots in the streets among citizens who cannot be taken care of by governments following the Rousseau model anymore. From one end of the globe to another, right-leaning govermnments are winning in Great Britain, Germany, France, soon to be Australia, and most everywhere else.
The American Tea Party Movement is the most powerful political entity seen in decades, probably in more than a century or even two centuries. It is impervious to attempts to discredit it because it simply emanates from People Power, the single unstoppable, inexorable force which, like Christianity, cannot be stopped because it simply places forth Truth.
The result will be Republican mid-term victories in November unseen in the lifetim of a single living American citizen. In two years, Barack Obama will be repudiated as thoroughly as any political fiugure ever has. Thus will the age of revolution be over and Conservatism: the winner of history will begin. A new age for the next millenium.
God bless America. The Truth shall set ye free.
