America has entered a tumultuous period of civil unrest and political conflict—one with but three possible outcomes: reform, revolution, or collapse. We assert that we are beyond the point of being achieving peaceable reform and, therefore, the likeliest outcome is either revolution or collapse. America has been building towards a third revolution for almost a hundred years. To understand where we are going, we first need to understand the process—the blueprint for revolution.
While every revolution manifests a certain degree of uniqueness, they all share certain commonalities—basic building blocks that form a universal blueprint for revolution.
Our first American revolution was the Civil War. Our second was the period of the New Deal, when the Fabian Socialists seized control of the Democrat Party and forever changed the course of our nation. We now find ourselves on the cusp of a third American revolution.
This is a Marxist revolution. The necessary foundation was laid in laid during the first revolution (conception), the movement was birthed during the second revolution, and now it is coming of age—ready to realize its full potential—in the third.
This article is the second in a series on Marxism in America. We encourage you to read our first Marxism Exposed: Prepare for the Next American Revolution, where we introduce Marxism—including its key tenets, faith propositions, and the risk it poses to the American way of life.
Here, we are going to examine revolution and reveal the blueprint the radical Left is following—a blueprint with three clearly-defined stages or phases.
Background—Prior American Revolutions
As we noted, this is not the start of something unique—America has already witnessed two revolutions during our brief history.
We saw the revolutionary blueprint followed in the Civil War (with violence and bloodshed) and in the 1930s with the Fabian takeover of the Democratic Party and implementation of the New Deal (via the ballot box). And now, we are seeing it unfold again in America.
Before we discuss the blueprint, let’s take a moment to examine the past revolutions to gain some critical insights…
The Civil War—America’s First Revolution
The first revolution was fought during the Civil War. Despite what you have been programmed to believe, it was not—at its core—about slavery. Rather, it was, as it always is, about power and control—in this case, the form and structure of our government.
The Enlightenment had delivered a new philosophy to the world (including America)—rationalism. Gone was the antiquated and conservative (aka regressive) worldview predicated on biblical Christianity that had been reintroduced during the Reformation.
The first century of American history was dominated by this rationalism—practiced by nearly all our Founding Fathers (deists at best) and socio-politically influential citizens. However, rationalism failed to deliver the perfected humanity it had promised.
Out of the ashes of rationalism arose a new worldview—that of romanticism and transcendentalism. It started in the marbled halls of European academia… spreading from there across the “pond” to America. And its radical converts—who were concentrated in the northern more “educated” states—realized they had a problem.
If humanity was going to be perfected, the new worldview had to be fully implemented—by the enlightened elites through power. However, our form of government—federalism—failed to provide the needed level of control and power.
Hence, they needed to transform America’s government from a federalist form (with a strong vertical distribution of power) into a nationalist form (with a highly centralized and powerful national government). Then—and only then—could they usher in the new era of perfected society.
Slavery was merely the “anti-thesis” (to borrow from Marxism) that they used to create conflict—conflict that would generate the change (progress) they desired.
The truth is that slavery would have all but faded away within a generation—the Christian abolitionist movement had all but assured that. And, if the radicals had truly wanted to speed that up, they could have purchased the freedom of all remaining slaves (as Britain had done with their emancipation plan).
But it wasn’t about slavery or racial inequality—it has never been about that. No, it was about control. The radicals knew they were running out of time to capitalize on the emotional opportunity presented by slavery to create the real change (progress) needed, and the radicals pushed hard for the use of force to “end it now.”
Had slavery been allowed to end peacefully (which they knew was inevitable), the very conflict they needed to fuel their real change would have evaporated. They couldn’t allow that to happen (aka “never let a good crisis go to waste”).
The result was a violent and bloody civil war that cost our nation over a million lives. In the end, they got their wish—nationalism was delivered to them on a silver platter during the Reunification process.
Why do you think the Union laid waste to the South?
It wasn’t about just achieving the end to slavery. It was about the total annihilation of a belief system—not that of slavery but, rather, that of limited federalist government (whether predicated on a rationalistic or Christian philosophy).
It was never about ending slavery; rather, it was about crushing a “regressive” worldview in order to unleash change (progress)—a worldview that only served to shackle man to the bonds of foolish theistic notions (e.g., divided power that was accountable to God) and threatened to prevent society from realizing its full humanist potential.
It’s worth pointing out that things haven’t changed much since. Today’s “conflict” has nothing to do with racial inequality in America—that’s just a concocted “anti-thesis” to create the conflict necessary for change (progress). It still is—and always will be—all about power, control, and our form of government (just on a global level now).
Again, we encourage you to read our first article in this series to understand the back story on Marxism (e.g., change, progress, dialectic action, and its ultimate goal).
Remember, prior to the Civil War, America was always referred to as “these United States” (emphasizing the power and independence of the states). After words, it became “the United States” (emphasizing the power and control of the centralized, national government), with the states having been stripped of much of their power—the exact opposite of the rationalistic (natural law) intentions of our Founding Fathers.
As such, a new, much stronger central government emerged as a tool of control—and with it the idea of a vertical distribution of power in our government faded into the shadows of history. The framework for all future revolutions had been laid.
Fabian Socialists Seize Control—America’s Second Revolution
The next revolution occurred in the 1930s. Unlike the Civil War, it was peaceably executed (arguably unknowingly by most Americans) through the ballot box.
Marxism emerged onto the global scene in the mid-1800s. Marx and Engels met and began working in collaboration on their Marxist philosophy in 1844—publishing The Communist Manifesto in 1848.
In 1883, Fabian socialists organized in England under the Order of Fabian Socialists, and Marxism quickly grew to dominate the power centers of Europe between 1900 and 1930.
At the same time, it was expanding into Russia. In the spring of 1917, the Fabian socialists revolted and seized control—only to be overthrown by a second, more well-known revolution in the fall (the Bolshevik Revolution), led by Lenin and what would become known as his radicalized Marxist-Leninist strain or variation.
A Maoist version emerged in China in 1921 with the founding of the Chinese Communist Party.
But America was not spared by this plight—Marxism, in the form of Fabian socialism, spread to our shores from Western Europe as well. It was introduced via the ISS (Intercollegiate Socialist Society) in 1900, which subsequently transformed into the LID (League for Industrial Democracy) in 1920. The later name was much more palatable for most Americans, who instinctively rejected the “socialist” moniker.
Regardless of its name, it accomplished the task of indoctrinating the academics and elites of the time—like Europe, growing dominate all the power centers in America. Ultimately, the Fabian socialists seized control of the Democratic Party in 1930 and have used that as their vehicle to spread Marxism in America ever since.
This takeover of the party, followed by the New Deal, represented the second American revolution. Just as the Civil War fundamentally changed the nature of our country, so did the second revolution. From that point forward, America became more and more socialist… and less and less capitalist.
Today, the Fabians have managed to transform America into centrally-managed markets, crony capitalism, and legalized plunder—fueling economic inequality on a gargantuan scale… the very inequality that provides the impetus (conflict) for just more Marxist change (progress).
To learn more about the very real problem of economic inequality in America—and how it is contributing to the coming revolution, we encourage you to read our articles: Economic Inequality & Legal Plunder: Reform, Revolution or Collapse?, Economic Inequality: Powell Shamelessly LIES about Fed’s Role, and Exposing the Wealth Gap: Economic Inequality Is Driving Civil Unrest.
Following this revolution, the Fabian socialists created the ADA (Americans for Democratic Action) in 1948, followed by the creation of SDS (Students for Democratic Society) in the 1960s. This organization fractured, resulting in the spinoff of the Weatherman—which was a group of Marxist-Leninist radicals, who believed violence and bloodshed was the only path to change and progress.
That marked the transition, or passing of the torch, from the Fabians to the Marxist-Leninists in America. From there, they settled into academia, where they recruited and proselytized the next generation of radicalized youth (and the next generation of Marxist educators).
This has resulted in the masses of brainwashed (radicalized) youth we see today in such organizations as Antifa and Black Lives Matter—marching into battle under the banner of Marxism.
It is critical to understand that the Fabians always plant the seeds and spread the gospel of Marxism, which is then picked up and radicalized by Marxist-Leninists.
Fabians are not innocent, nor should they be viewed as some benign, well-intentioned grandpa in a rocking chair. Leninist Marxism would not exist around the world were it not the work of the Fabians (remember Soviet Russia). A foothold must first be achieved within an, otherwise, resistant population.
The Fabian Socialists hold the exact same presuppositions and seek to implement the same policies (it’s the same religious system, the same faith)—just a different methodology for advancing the cause (viz., legal coercion vs coercion by force).
Thus, the ultimate expression of the Marxist-Leninist movement in America today is just the natural and inevitable progression of the Fabian movement that began in 1900. We are plunging headlong into the third American revolution; however, this one will bear far more resemblance to the first than the second—thanks to the insertion of Marxist-Leninist methodology.
Marxist Revolution—The Three-Stage Blueprint
Now that we’ve examined the history and background, let’s turn our focus to defining the blueprint that all revolutions follow. It is a three-stage plan:
- Education (Coercion by Thought)
- Political (Coercion by Law)
- Military (Coercion by Force)
Revolution: Education Stage
The first stage of any revolution is the education (or re-education) of the people—coercion by thought.
As such, all revolutions or philosophical transformations begin in academia. From there, the theoretical nuances of the emerging ideology can be worked out and honed over the fires of intellectual discovery and analysis.
Once complete, the ideology can be spread by educators to a new generation of youth. They are the easy targets—filled with youthful emotion, passion and exuberance, but lacking the perspective of time and experience necessary to challenge revolutionary ideas.
To effect change, you must always start with re-educating the people—from the bottom up (both in terms of age and socio-economic class).
In regards to the third American revolution, this manifested itself as the product of the 1960s. Those radicalized youth, once they realized they couldn’t change our nation overnight, withdrew into academia. From there, they were able to slowly spread their ideology over decades. Each graduating class headed off into the world to practice their professional pursuits (e.g., business, law, finance, education, political science, etc.)—carrying inside of them (knowingly or unknowingly) the seeds of Marxism.
Thanks to the successful re-education, socialism was inherent in their process thinking and naturalist, materialist and humanist philosophy—just waiting to become “woke” by the radical leadership at a dialectically opportunistic time (e.g., a pandemic crisis?).
Revolution: Political Stage
The second stage of a revolution is the political stage. This is where the Fabians step forward to take the stage. Having been re-educated, they enter the political scene and seek to facilitate change (progress) through legislation.
They don’t believe violence is the answer. Rather, they believe the ignorant sheeple can be coerced into submission by the force of law.
This is what we have witnessed over the past five decades—a continuous transformation of our nation by legislation. Oh, it started way back with the New Deal; however, the pace and intensity has grown exponentially. Constitutional liberties have been infringed in the name of inclusiveness and equality. Regulation—by an all-powerful nationalist government—has been the tool of choice, supported by an activist judiciary, a supportive network of wealthy elites and business leaders, and a biased media bent on censoring alternative (regressive) viewpoints.
The second revolution was, in a way, just the kickoff to a much larger phase two—a revolution within a broader revolution–one that will culminate in a third revolution. Perhaps this is why the second revolution was peaceable (it was only a beginning—not a culmination), while the next one will more closely resemble the nature of the first?
Revolution: Military Stage
The final step or phase is military in nature. This does not mean it is necessarily fought by formal military forces but, rather, that is carried out through violence and bloodshed—it is coercion by brute force.
At some point, the Marxist-Leninist factions lose patience with the Fabians. The ranks of impassioned and energized youth demand change now—and not just incremental change but, rather, massive change.
As a result, they resort to intimidation, violence, and bloodshed to achieve their goal of change. We saw this with the radicals instigating the Civil War, and we see it today in the civil unrest, riots, and cancel culture.
Once this stage starts, it cannot be stopped. It will resolve itself one way or the other—either the “thesis” or the “anti-thesis” will emerge victorious. The Marxist believes the outcome is inevitable. I would argue that history will be the judge of that. I’ve read the Book (God’s Word) and I know how this movie ends… and the Marxists will—in the end—be sadly mistaken about their faith in a false religion predicated on rebellion against God.
However, until that final resolution arrives, we are left with the undeniable reality that we are entering stage three—a third American revolution.
It appears things can’t possibly get any worse for America… but they can and will. Things may ebb and flow; however, the crisis will only grow in intensity over time—that is the Marxist game plan.
Will the emerging revolution resemble the all-out carnage of the Civil War?
Or, will it take on the form of a more fragmented and intermittent battle?
Again, only time will tell. However, we need to be prepared for whatever this revolution manifests itself as.
We fully understand that there are lots of folks out there saying things are going to get better, there’s no revolution, no possibility of civil war, no more violence and bloodshed, no lasting recession, no depression…
These folks are suffering from irrationalism. We’re not saying any of these things WILL happen. Rather, we are simply asserting that there is a very real probability they COULD happen.
If you study history and understand the undercurrents that steer everything on the surface, then you know this to be true.
If we know something could happen, then why on earth would we not prepare for it? Why would we not seek to shift the risk-reward curve as far in our favor as possible?
We can’t fight a revolution if we are not in a position to ensure we will be capable to fight it. Failure to prepare will inevitably result in having to surrender to the very powers we should be fighting. After all, who calls on the government to save them? Those that were not prepared.
Each of us will have to determine for ourselves what role we will play in the revolution. However, if you want to survive it, then you must be prepared for it—emotionally, mentally, and physically.
Take every opportunity you have to build your preps!
Haven’t started yet? Well, even if you’re behind the power curve, it’s not too late. We have plenty of opportunity right now to start prepping. Develop a plan—do what you can. The important thing is to be consistent—no different than saving or investing.
Doing a little prepping each week will add up to a big impact over time.
However, we don’t know when that opportunity could evaporate—like we witnessed in March. We encourage you to act now.
As always, hope for the best, prepare for the worst, and—in all things—pray!
