In this hyper-politicized world every act has an agenda. And with so many false flags, failing governments, simmering (or actually boiling) culture wars and rampant ideological insanity it is nearly impossible to dismiss them.
Meanwhile, one of the great symbols (fire which engulfed the iconic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris) and repositories of human achievement was nearly destroyed by either carelessness, neglect, malicious intent or a sinister combination of all three.
While we are lamenting the cynical initial reaction there were people all across the globe cheering the destruction of an integral part of human history.
It shows just how deeply ingrained the current divides are. It shows how fallen and corrupt of spirit the culture has become.
It’s religious significance is secondary to this. If it was just an expression of the rivalry between Islam and Christianity that would be regrettable if understandable.
Descendants of those that built Notre Dame were cheering this event because they have been inculcated to hate religion of all forms by their Marxist education.
They have been effectively immunized against feeling anything but contempt for themselves and their history.
Marxists fundamentally believe in creating a man without a history, without connection to his past to mold him into Antisemitism.
Because a people without a past, incapable of facing the evil they have done, is a people on a path to self-righteous crusades that far exceed any horrors previously committed.
Think about the insane atrocities of the 20th century and then remember it was done in the name of creating a better human.
People without history have no context. They are unstuck in time having to relearn lessons which our ancestors built monuments to remind us of what we’re capable of for better or worse.
While the French government took years to raise €12 million to renovate Notre Dame despite having the highest tax rate in the world, private donations to rebuild it topped $1 billion in the first 48 hours after the fire was put out.
This is gratifying in a way that is almost beyond words. And it makes a mockery of the statist arguments for government to replace private charity and private property.
If the French, themselves to birthplace of this post-modern and most sinister form of Marxism, had left even a smudge of capital for their people to enjoy maybe we would not be mourning/cheering Notre Dame today.
