Emasculated liars, policy makers, and useful idiots

“To assent to obvious lies is to cooperate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.”

— Theodore Dalrymple, from Our Culture, What’s Left of It: The Mandarins and the Masses

In context, that quote was originally used in a passage about political correctness as communist propaganda but, I think, it makes sense to use it to make a social and moral point too.

To understand where I’m coming from you need to understand that I firmly believe that our society has devolved to this.

“Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.”

— Romans 1:24-25

Even if you’re not a Bible believing Christian, it’s hard to make a case that our society has not exchanged universal truths for manufactured progressive lies and replaced religion with progressive ideology. I would ad that it’s also hard to make the case that many have not been “given over” to the point that they can’t tell the difference between truth and lies.

I also believe that American society, on the progressive side anyway, is divided into three segments.

1. Liberal elite policy makers

— These are the topmost people in power whose agenda, disguised as giant societal leaps forward, is born of evil, rooted in lies, and foisted on the masses using evil and dishonest means.

2. Enablers

— These are; politicians, professors, celebrities, media outlets, etc. who serve as cogs in the progressive social change machine. They have assented to obvious (obvious to those who have not been given over) lies and are willing to cooperate with evil to an evil end.

3. Useful idiots

— These are the emasculated and easy to control liars who are unable to resist anything anyone in the other segments tells them.

  4. I’ve long been an admirer of Theodore Dalrymple (aka Anthony Daniels). Great writer, great analyst, and a brilliant man who’s been there, done that, seen it, and described it in great and sometimes withering detail.

  5. Darlymple is an extraordinary writer and smart man, glad to see him quoted here. I agree mostly with your sentiments James but I often wonder if the progressives actually know what they are doing is evil, or are they just so thoroughly convinced of their own righteousness that they are completely blinded to truth?

    • Your question is what makes Dalrymple’s observations so fascinating and relevant.

      At the highest levels I do think progressives know what they are doing is evil but they will never lose money or power so they don’t care which is evil in itself.

      Down the chain are the emasculated liars who are easy to control. They repeat obvious lies and aid evil in the process.

      Earlier today I saw a progressive who claimed to have listened to the whole Barr hearing repeating lies as if they were fact. Did he know he was doing evil’s bidding? Nope, not a chance, just a deceived liar for his puppet masters.

      And yes, they are convinced of their own righteousness. Problem is, their righteousness is based not on an absolute moral standard but, instead, on them being on the right side of history.
