The world leaders and opinion-shapers of our age (“That’s our job!” said Mika Brzenski, however you spell her name) have sometimes been accused of being nihilists. That’s not accurate. The logical end of nihilism is obliteration. That’s not exactly what these people want.
“Nihil” means “nothing”: hence “nihilism.” But nothingism means “nothing good.” Because that’s what they want–nothing good, only bad.
That’s why they so determinedly pursue public policies that make no sense at all, that can’t possibly produce anything but disaster–howlers like socialism, transgenderism, open borders, global government, militant atheism (the most barren of a barren lot), etc. Policies that give us nothing but people going mad with fear or rage, soaring crime rates, and city streets heaped high with trash and feces.
Now the people who promote these chaotic policies see the same images we see, but the difference between us must be that they like what they see and want to see more of it! They are not dismayed by seeing hordes of homeless migrants pouring into their countries and wrecking them–doesn’t bother them at all. They are not dismayed by people breaking into zoos and eating the animals, because socialism has killed their economy and there’s no food in the stores–doesn’t bother them a bit. They’re “progressives,” and that’s what they call progress.
They can see their policies bring nothing but hardship, confusion, and suffering. We are forced to conclude that they enjoy seeing hardship, confusion, and suffering. They tell us it’s going to lead us to Utopia, to paradise on earth. What they don’t tell us is the kicker: “Paradise on earth for us, not you.”
O Lord our God! Imbue us with the spirit of Caleb, of Joshua, and give us strength and courage to prevail against your enemies. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
