Marxism feeds on class warfare. That is power-grabbing technique of socialism. In order to create chaos Marxists first foment the dissatisfaction into open violence. When that happens emotion reigns and truth is obscured. I won't go into the Russian Revolution any further, but the technique is important to understand with whom it is that we are warring!
"You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." (Rahm Emanuel)Unfortunately there are always "serious crises". If not dutiful soldiers of chaos create the crisis. If not the creation of a crisis, socialism fosters dissension until it is a crisis. When emotions are high truth is obscured because reason requires cognition. When people quit thinking straight is when masses of discouraged people go awry and trouble ensues. Old truths grow until they become new truths. Of course truth cannot be changed, but angry people are gullible for anything.
What is truth? People don't care, but truth is when anything is in accordance with reality. "The police are brutal" contains truth, but it is not entirely truthful. Some police have been brutal, but the majority of policemen are good citizens just doing their jobs. Emotion blinds people to truth. Through the blurry eyes of pain, the hurt person sees the policeman as a weapon of mass destruction who is a hater. That's not truth. That's emotion speaking!
My own son was beaten by a police officer in Bowling Green. My son had his faults, but on this occasion witnesses told me that he was being peaceful and that the cop instigated the conflict which led to brutal tactics. The cop was emotional and failed to use reason. My son was hauled off to jail for merely being the wrong place at the wrong time. Two months later that same policeman was fired for beating a black woman. Here we have a situation that the cop wasn't discriminating with whom he was angry, but anger toward a person of color brought justice whereas with a white male, justice failed!
I was angry, but I was rational. I put emotion aside. I respect policemen to this day. The abusive police officer was the exception not the rule. Justice finally prevailed with him. I am disappointed that the laws of the land have made justice toward some better than justice for all, but that is what we have paid for due to America's long guilt trip because of slavery and the results of Reconstruction where "inequality" became the law of the land.
With all the demonstrations nationwide there are reasons for it. Because of history, blacks still have the hurt of past discrimination. I've always contended that the war caused the problem we have today and I actually blame the Radical Republicans rather than credit them, for the racial division today. The courts were the proper tool for change, not a war! The so-called Civil War was the emotional response for using a crisis for change. We now have change and we see it on the streets. We have two nations, not one privileged and the other not, because the government has made minorities more privileged. It's the same type of placation which resulted in a war where 700,000 people died!
Those in the streets today are mere tools. They are being used by those behind the scenes who desire a Utopia here on earth, with of course, them in charge! Once the tool has served their purpose the facilitators will step forward and push them aside. Socialism easily realizes that color cannot be hidden and color is a divider. Lincoln himself realized that when he said:
"I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races. There is physical difference between the two which, in my judgment, will probably forever forbid their living together upon the footing of perfect equality, and inasmuch as it becomes a necessity that there must be a difference, I, as well as Judge Douglas, am in favor of the race to which I belong having the superior position."Lincoln realized that race could not be hidden and that color shall always be a barrier to unity! This notion is the crises which progressives use to gain ground in their revolution to create a one world government, and blacks fall for their deception. Color can be grabbed from the box and progressives are grabbing the black crayon to do their coloring. This crayon is always at the front of the box and is getting worn down from use!
Of course their is a solution, but it's not doing what THEY want us to do. The progressives use this crisis to their own advantage and now race relations are worse than ever!
Lincoln also realized that we are all created equal. That's from "The Gettysburg Address". God made us different, but scripture says that he is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). Like it or not, God made us all and he made us equal in his eyes! Does that mean that we are inherently equal. No! Any sane person can see that we are different from each other, but each of our qualities are in the eyes of the beholder. To be truthful, I don't care for black culture. It's at odds with scripture. However, I don't care for popular culture practiced by any race for the same reason. Progressives have come up with one of those "new truths" which divide: "Hate can be defined by recognizing that we are different.", but at the same time dwell on diversity to exacerbate the crises! It's not equality progressives desire; it's dissatisfaction to drive the desire for change their way.
Before we know it there will be a peak crisis which will drive the people to arms. It may go either way. It may be a race war. It may be a war between democracy and socialism or it may be a religious war. Marxists don't care what the flavor of the war is as long as they can use the war for gain. That's what the Bolsheviks did! Even though Bloody Sunday which started their Revolution was led by a priest seeking change for the better, it was not long before the Marxists nearly destroyed Christianity which drove the desire for change! Their tool had been used, was no longer sharp and was discarded in favor of more blatant tools.
That's what will happen with "Black Lives Matter". Once they serve their purpose they'll learn that to the progressives "Black Lives Don't Matter". They are a mere tool in the arsenal for change and change has direction! Blacks will someday suffer because progressives like Margaret Sanger sees color as merely a black crayon in their box to be used until it's too short to shade opinion. Then those progressives will just grab another crayon and color on!
The solution to this is Jesus Christ. He is who knows that we are equal!
