I'm not one to say 'I told you so' - But I told you so.
Even before I was a Christian, and very actively from about 30-15 years ago I used to be active (in journalism, in professional 'politics', giving lectures etc) against all these trends for New Leftism (identity politics), Political Correctness, Bureaucracy - the politicisation of science, medicine, academic, education.
I was at that time just arguing from (what was then) 'common sense' - on the usual mainstream assumption that 'we wanted' a prosperous, comfortable, efficient, effective materialistic society; and pointing-out that that was precisely what we were incrementally destroying by the prevalent ideology.
(This is a matter of public record, which can be inspected by anyone interested-enough; much of it is available or referenced at hedweb.com/bgcharlton ).
I was active then because I realised that then was the last time such measure might be effective - and could be undertaken without much risk of any serious adverse sanctions.
When that time was passed, when it was too late, I stopped politicking and polemicking...
Now it is too late for 'normal politics' to stand much or any chance - and the obedient drones, the dishonest and careerist, the timid and unprincipled are far more numerous and more powerful - and even more fearful and compliant.
Of course, now that it is too late; the alternative media are full of people (most of these would-be thought-leaders and culture warriors themselves cringing behind net-anonymity!) calling for active resistance Now - but now there is almost nobody able (and even fewer willing) to resist. I don't object to the handful or relatively-uncorrupted trying - it is not ruled-out as absolutely impossible; but I don't believe they will achieve anything - because now it's too late, now they are too few.
That's what being too late means.
That is why I now address individuals not groups, and why I emphasise the absolute priority and necessity for spiritual awakening - before anything good can come-about. Being too late also means that we ('the people') are now our-selves too corrupt to be able to rely on socio-political pressures to 'implement' our will: it is now our will that is corrupt.
That perverted will must be fixed - or political changes will only make things worse, but worse in a different way.
We missed the boat; we did not act when it could have been effective; we need to take that on board and act accordingly.
And, in a way, it is better that it be so - because, when our fundamental metaphysical assumptions have been so very wrong for such a long time; all the 'fixes' I used to ask for (15-30 years ago) would never have done more than delay the inevitable. The underlying errors were still in-place.
However, it is significant that we did not even try to correct the obvious problems; instead - as a society - The West embraced its own destruction some decades ago, and we are currently well en route.
But from where we are now; our assumptions will necessarily be the proper ones, and our actions will be properly motivated.
