SJW Shock Troops Of Totalitarianism
Hannah Arendt, in her 1951 classic The Origins Of Totalitarianism, reflects on an attitude among the elites that paved the way for Nazism and Communism:
In other words, the elites sided with the mob, because of Social Justice. And they didn’t even care that they were endorsing histories that were false. All history was false, right? If there is no heaven, where all the injustices of our mortal lives will be reckoned with, and all that is crooked will be made straight, then the demands of Social Justice require that we accept any lie, and affirm any practice, that evens the scales.
Sound familiar? She could be writing about university administrators, or big-city newspaper editors. I’m serious. The capitulations of elites in universities and media to the demands of the mob are a sign. Something is being prepared, whether they know it or not.
