“Narrative is central to cultural identity. The story of a nation as told by its members, and handed down to posterity, is determinative of its character, purpose, and continued existence. A folk without memory or love of their own history will not identify with their own saga. And if not, neither will they feel any particular onus to perpetuate their civilization.
The Frankfurt school and its Culture of Critique are, of course, infamous for having struck at this very thing. Conscious of the fact that Christendom could not be overthrown by frontal assault by arms nor theology, our enemies resolved to strike at the narrative of our civilization — the historic conception and expression of our Faith.”
1.) Some people will rise up to defend their narrative and to rend and tear those who would attack and seek to destroy their precious narrative. That is what we are seeing with the ongoing Roe protests. SCOTUS is fixing to strike this portion of narrative / saga down and the left is rising up to defend their narrative. Would that Christians were as passionate about their narrative/story being attacked as the Left is passionate about defending their narrative from being undone.
2.) Of course what follows the destruction of the various incarnations of the prevailing narrative/story via the destruction of statuary, changing out of Institutional names, removing of art, lowering and removal of flags, etc. the next inevitable step is the removal of the descendants of the people responsible for the abundant wreckage of narrative change that has been pursued. A people who do not have a narrative incarnated are a people who themselves will not last long in terms of existence.
3.) Note the language of “frontal assault,” being abandoned by the Cultural Marxists in favor of a back door approach to tear down Christendom. Lucifer and his minions understood that they could never get away with directly attacking the Lordship of Jesus Christ, with directly attacking Christendom, with directly attacking Biblical Christianity. As such they went for the narrative knowing that if they pulled down the narrative they would at the same time pull down the Lordship of Jesus Christ, Christendom, and Christianity. This accounts for the Cultural Marxist attack on White People and their narrative. Attack White people by attacking their narrative, redefine Christianity along the way so you can continue to plead as you destroy the narrative that ‘Hey, I’m a Christian too,’ and seek to pile on the guilt upon those few white Christians who will not be moved. Voila … the end of Christendom, Christianity, and the historic carrier of the previous two … White People.
If one can view all this dispassionately (I can’t) it has been really quite brilliant the way we have been undone.
And it is the Christians who are ultimately to blame for all this with the chief amount of blame being shouldered by America’s clergy for the past two – four generations.
