Simple, isn't it?
I've always wondered how modern Commies decide the natural direction of history. It's certainly a Marxist concept, designed to put all the levers of culture in the hands of a few decision-makers. When everyone agrees that Progress runs along a fixed track with no exits or branches, the elites don't have to persuade or argue for a change that will give them even more power and privilege. They can simply declare this change to be Progress, and dispute becomes impossible.
For instance, everyone in the so-called "news" business knows that homosexual "marriage" is the natural direction of history. Anyone who doesn't love and celebrate the idea is not merely reactionary but logically unimaginable, like running time backwards.
The best way to explode this tyranny is to ask: Well then, what's the next step? Since you know that homosexual "marriage" is the only possible course of history for this decade, you must also know what comes next. Is it polygamy? If not, why not? If "Heather Has Two Mommies" is automatically necessary, shouldn't we be agitating next for "Heather Has Two Mommies and One Daddy"?
And on the rare occasions when this basic and perfectly logical question is asked, there is no coherent answer, just a lot of predictable Tourettist-Leninist cussing and screeching.
I realized last night that the screechiness (=cognitive dissonance) on this particular question doesn't really come from the Marxiness of our traitors; it comes from their snobbishness. Homosexuality is the inevitable stage of history because rich secular New Yorkers are homosexual.
Polygamy can never be a stop on the subway line of history because polygamists are poor Protestant Southerners.
If rich secular New Yorkers were currently polygamous, polygamy would be the current logically necessary stage. QED.
Snobbishness may also explain why our internal destroyers love al-Qaeda despite its violent disagreement with everything else they love. Though the destroyers always recite the standard absurd nonsense about terrorism arising from poverty, they know that Sheikh Osama is rich and well-educated, and the inner core of al-Qaeda is also rich and well-educated. Doctors and engineers.
They defend Nidal Hasan because he's a psychiatrist. They didn't bother to defend John Allen Williams alias Muhammad because he was a poor and uneducated man.
