maybe the elites are not really in control

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

One popular theory to explain the Cultural Revolution that has swept the western world in the past six decades or so is that the whole thing was engineered by the ruling class (the elites if you like). It’s a theory that I’ve personally entertained. It’s certainly easy enough to see why the ruling class would have considered things like mass immigration and feminism to be to their advantage (in the case of feminism the motive would have been to weaken the unions). And the Cultural Revolution did serve as a useful means of distracting people from economic issues.

An alternative explanation would be that the Cultural Revolution was largely a spontaneous phenomenon, possibly the inevitable result of things like the decline of Christianity, urbanisation, mass media, etc. The ruling class took the opportunity to profit from the Cultural Revolution but in this scenario they were not responsible for creating it.

There is a third possibility – that the ruling class unleashed the Cultural Revolution but then lost control of it. In this scenario they failed to anticipate that ideologies such as feminism and Gay Liberation were going to attract a sizeable number of highly unstable, and in many cases mentally ill, people. Such people are very difficult to control. The end result was that these ideologies rapidly became much more radical than the ruling class had expected (or hoped). These ideologies developed their own momentum and Woke Capital simply decided that the safest course of action was to go along with them.

The elites may no be smart as they think they are (or as we often think they are). They’re not Bond villains. They’re not criminal geniuses. They’re motivated by greed, fear and a desire for power. They’re often surprisingly mediocre people. You don’t necessarily gain power and wealth by being smart – you just need to be focused, ruthless and have no ethics.

There’s also the question of the motivation of the mainstream political parties. To what extent are politicians (on both the “left” and the “right”) True Believers in Social Justice and Wokeism and to what extent are they merely cynical and cowardly? You have to ask yourself whether the average politician has any actual principles at all. Are they merely whores?

This also applies to journalists, who are definitely whores. Are journalists Woke simply because that’s the best way to keep their jobs?

It is possible that nobody is actually controlling the Cultural Revolution. Maybe nobody ever was controlling it, or maybe certain groups were controlling it but they have hopelessly lost control.
