When the Soviet Union collapsed in the early 1990s, the world made a dramatic shift to the political right over a short time. Since then, there has been an ongoing trend towards greater freedom and democracy worldwide, but this trend has been gradual, until recently. Now, the shift to the right has started to accelerate again. I believe, we are seeing today, not just another shift, but the start of the total and final collapse of the political left.
We are witnessing right-wing populist governments being elected around the world. We are also seeing signs of the impending implosion of the left in the way leftist propaganda has become increasingly extreme, and, in many ways, self-defeating. Almost 40 years from the start of the climate change deception (longer if we add the earlier global cooling deception to the current global warming one), we have amassed a long list of claims that have expired or been disproved.
The world was to have been a burning disaster by now, with famine and rising seas. Instead we have the same sea level, less famine than ever, and improving health, security and prosperity around the world. People are waking up to having been lied to, and people hate being lied to. The coming revolt will be swift, propelled by anger against lying leftist elites and driven by a cascade of people promoting their newly discovered truth.
To promote the climate change hoax, the left now grasp at anything and everything as supporting evidence. In doing so, their arguments become weaker. They have built a house of cards. As claims become more extreme, they become easier to disprove. And when people see enough claims disproved, the house of cards collapses. Now, those on the left seem to have abandoned any pretense of rational argument. They have resorted to shouting and swearing, in an apparent effort to make people afraid to voice any other viewpoint, but this won’t work for long.
Reaching the limits of deception, alone, would soon bring an end to the political left, but they have done something much worse. In desperation to promote socialist ideology, they have violated one of the most sacred unwritten rules of any civilized society – to not involve children in political or ideological conflict. Leftist elites are targeting our children with lies which make these impressionable young people fear for their lives. If people were not already motivated to leave the left by being lied to, they should be motivated now by the need to protect our children.
As leftist propaganda reaches the limits of credibility and decency, leftists are running out of runway, while the populist right is just getting started. Right-wing populism is driven by the truth – people bypassing the leftist-dominated media and sharing information on social media – with no sign we are reaching a limit. Currently, conventional media still dominates. Over the next few years, online news and online video will gain a growing audience, and eventually surpass conventional media. As this happens, politics will shift more and more to the populist right, eventually leading to the total and final collapse of the political left.
