I hope this letter finds you doing well, though I realize in these tumultuous political times that might not be the case. Sadly I do not see a return to “normal” in our immediate future, and so I thought it important to reach out to you before things progress much further.
I expect that with a certain degree of pride you have thought yourself quite above the fray of the “extreme” elements of the political spectrum. You may have thought this a symbol of your sensibility and open mindedness. Perhaps you think yourself a libertarian. While I sympathize with this view, I write today to inform you that you are misguided.
The political winds in America, and indeed throughout the world have (as you’ve likely noticed) lent themselves ever more to extreme political elements as of late. Today, a war rages on in which one side must eventually destroy the other in a cataclysmic clash of rivalrous and incompatible world views. The left and right can no longer share a system of government or geopolitical territory without constant and catastrophic bloodshed.
The prize in this conflict, is you, dear centrist. We are competing for your support both in democratic elections and in martial conflict. Thus, while you have to this date thought yourself quite above the fray, you are in fact beneath it at the moment. You have chosen not to be a player in the game, and this has made you the field instead. You are the ground into which we sink our cleats and run across to deprive our rivals of your possession. We both seek to command you, and in the end one of us ultimately will.
I’ll not pretend that you have much of a choice in the matter. I will leave that treachery to our rivals. I am here to level with you. The truth is, you wield little to no influence over who your rulers are. Your vote counts so little that in due time we’ll simply stop counting them at all. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t vote, only that you should not get your hopes up about what impact it will have.
Rather, I would invite you to pick a side ideologically so that you can have some concept about what is happening around you. The soothing calls for inclusion, diversity, equality, and fairness that you have become so used to are not what your television has portrayed them to be. My greatest hope, sad as this may be, is that the latest “civil rights” struggle over men being allowed into women’s bathrooms and locker rooms makes this obvious to you.
It’s easy to feel some sympathy for blacks over slavery and Jim Crow laws. One can even understand to some degree the plight of the homosexual in an age when their consensual sex acts were punishable by law. Be they true or false, the stories we’re told about Jewish persecution certainly elicit horror. But my hope is you can see the pattern developing, that now it is a crime to hire or promote a white over a black, town clerks are jailed for following their state constitutions, a presidential candidate saying “America First” is considered anti-Semitic, and now we are to believe that it is bigoted to simply recognize the difference between a man and a woman.
The truth, dear centrist, is that what you have been told is the voice of moderation and tolerance is anything but. Left wing political influences are an autoimmune disorder of our body politic and they will see us killed if we do not stop them. Healthy in group preferences are deemed racism. Production, trade, and the prosperity they bring are labeled “corporate greed” and taxed and regulated into oblivion. Dysgenic breeding is encouraged by the welfare state, while birth control and abortion are subsidized for those responsible enough to plan their families. Far from avoiding war, they engage in perpetual global conflict while inviting the enemy to live amongst us.
This is not tolerance, it is suicide.
So you have no choice to remain above the fray. You cannot simply dismiss both sides as extreme and take a little from each. That’s not the way this works. You can either be a right wing extremist, or you can be a useful idiot for the left’s sabotage of our civilization. You can choose for yourself, or the choice can be made for you, but the choice will be made one way or the other.
