The Embrace of the Noble Savage Moment

The left would speak in rapturous tones that “in China throughout a whole day of work, you will never hear anyone complain or disobey or talk back, because what you see in the man on the street is not politeness but ‘a deep brotherhood, an almost passionate seriousness, the selflessness of socialist man.”

Obviously these mesmerizing beliefs made it impossible to see anything other than their own (the Leftists) spellbinding in the Other. At that very moment when these kinds of words of praise were being spoken of the average man in the street in China, hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Chinese were being killed, massacred, or deported on the orders of the Great Leader, as the Chinese Communist party revealed several years later. The shock of this discovery would have been comical if the Western intelligentsia had not drowned the cries of China’s martyrs with its shouts of praise, thereby making itself an accomplice to the crimes committed. It made no difference since those who followed a phony dogma could paint their cartoon-like version of China at a time when the Middle Kingdom was being put to the sword and the torch. They painted a picture of a perfect nation with no crime, no poverty, no madness, no sickness, and even no dirt. It was as place where the blind could see, the deaf could hear, and, of course, the mute could speak, as if it were the step of Lourdes.”

The same is going on right now in America. The rioters now are being seen as the Chinese described above. The leftists (Marxists) see those rioting as the noble savages who can do no wrong. They are the heroes in the drama and if any excesses is among them it can only be the fault of the White Christian man who has pushed them into those excesses. The black man (generally but not universally speaking) and his ethnomasochistic white pagan pets can do no wrong per the Media and much of America’s political and academia class.

The rioters are now the noble savages and as noble savages, we non rioters must learn to aspire to their purity and greatness, and if we refuse to learn from them we must be exterminated in order that the new social order may come to pass. Christianity and the social order it creates must be displaced in favor of the Egalitarian Shangri-La.

This kind of thinking that supports the rioting obtains among our leadership because,

1.) Many see themselves as the leadership of the noble savage. If the noble savage is pure than those who lead must be pure also.

2.) Our leadership tends, by way of habit, to always hurry to get in front of the parade whichever way it is marching.

3.) Our leadership has been trained in humanist institutions and so they are pre-programmed to accept this train of thinking. It really is the case that many of our leadership, regardless of what field you are talking about, are crypto-Marxist in their thinking though they do not realize that.

One thought on “The Embrace of the Noble Savage Moment”

  1. Superstition guides the savage & justifies their “downward into the void” worship. They’re expedient because frankly the technocracy don’t need them long term; they have robots now.
