Critical Theory is an ingenious piece of technology. Through Critical Theory (CT), disparate flavors of leftism—be it liberalism, social democracy, socialism, or anarchism—are united against the threat of racism. By interpreting all phenomena as either racist or anti-racist, CT can unite the anti-racists, no matter how much they may disagree amongst themselves, against the racists. If liberal disagrees with an anarchist who wants to shut down the bank account of a prominent conservative, perhaps because he does not believe in weaponizing private industry against political opposition, then that liberal is quickly identified as siding with the racists and is either ideologically purged (“cancel culture” is the cutesy way of saying just this) or is forced to hold to the party line. Through this technology, a divided left is able to unify as a single force and crush its opposition.
Unlike the left, the right is seemingly unable to put aside its differences for the sake of defeating the godless left.Conservatives, libertarians, nationalists and reactionaries cannot stop bickering amongst themselves despite a left that has taken institutional power and will stop at nothing to ensure that a Republican is never elected again. What is needed, if any semblance of America is to survive the leftist onslaught, is a right-wing equivalent to CT. So long as we render ourselves defenseless by opting to argue with one another, the left will flood the country with tens of millions of new Democratic voters, “fortify” our elections, make the chemical castration of children more available under the guise of “sex change surgery”, and de-platform what few men of the right remain on mainstream social media. It is either “join or die”, as Benjamin Franklin so aptly put.
If there is to be a technology for unifying the American right, it needs to accord with conservatives, libertarians, nationalists, and reactionaries. Common to each of these camps is the demographic: the American right, now matter how moderate or radical, consists of the middle class, those persons who own businesses, land, and are materially invested in their communities. Although there are exceptions, the American right is made up of white Christians and it is this demographic that inhabits the middle-class. The left, in contrast, are either upper-class oligarchs or are the lower-class foot soldiers of this oligarchy. It is this class distinction between right and left that will serve as the core for a reverse CT.
A Reverse Critical Theory
Since the 18th century politics has been the story of oligarchs stirring up the lower-class in an attempt to confiscate the wealth of the middle-class; politics has been the story of a high-low alliance against the middle. To conduct this looting operation the oligarchs, make appeals to justice, framing the middle-class as agents of sin that cannot be trusted with power, and thus gives a moral façade to the looting. In recent years this can be seen clearly with movements like “Defund the Police.” First, a middle-class segment is identified, in this case local and state police, whom the oligarchs want to loot and transfer the power of the middle to themselves. To do this the oligarchs enraged the lower-class, in this case BLM and Antifa, over supposed racism. Once the mass of the lower-class became convinced that local and state police were inherently racist, and, correspondingly, the middle-class became too afraid of the lower-class to voice opposition, then the oligarchs could introduce the slogan “Defund the Police.” What defunding the police would do is de-power local and state police, and, in turn, granting federal enforcement agencies, who are (for the most part) in the pocket of the oligarchs. “Racism”, as can be seen here, is nothing more than a convenient moral cloak to hide the upper-class’ desire to enfranchise those members of law enforcement under their control, while simultaneously disenfranchising those members of law enforcement under their control. By calling the police “racist”, the left is really saying “these people are middle-class and are not under beholden to our dictates…let’s burn them at the stake!”
When a church is deemed “homophobic” for not performing a gay wedding, or when a couple does not allow their child to be chemically castrated (transition surgery) and is accordingly branded as “abusive” or “transphobic”, what is really happening is, like the example with Defund the Police, the high and low conspiring against the middle. Our oligarchs might not even care about the LGBT community, but by smearing churches and families who do not agree with LGBT, and then calling for these churches to lose tax exempt status or for the parents to lose custody of their child, they disempower two key sources of middle-class power: churches and families. Whether an oligarch cares about LGBT issues or not, he will inevitably pursue this line of action because it grants him more power over the lives of the middle-class and, simultaneously, strips them oftheir power.
Whenever a leftist says “racism”, “sexism”, “homophobe”, or “transphobe”, know that they are trying to cloak their intention to rob the wealth and power of the middle-class. There is a word for this behavior: criminality. Though we may want to believe otherwise, the left is not a rival political group, they are criminals who will try and moralize their theft one way or another. Apologizing to criminals, crying “please don’t hurt me, I’m not racist”, is either cowardice or compliancy with crime. It does not matter if you are a conservative or a libertarian, a nationalist or a reactionary, the left wants to steal your wealth and take away your power. The American right, also known as the middle-class, if it wants to survive, needs to put an end to criminality disguised as politics, call these goons out, and do everything possible to exclude them from any further political decision-making process. Those on the right who disagree with this are either cowards who have no place in politics or are apologists for criminals, either way there is no legitimate opposition to taking power away from the left and ensuring that they cannot take power ever again.
