The Big Truth
Philip M. writes from England:
Last night I was thinking about your statement, “The institutionalization of homosexuality … is leading and must lead to the official elimination of the concepts of mother and father,” and thinking about how amazingly controversial this is. I stuck it on as my Facebook update just to see the response, and I’ve never had so many people tell me I’m opening a “can of worms.”LA replies:
This is great. Just as the Big Lie is a lie so outrageous that people can’t believe that someone would tell such a lie, and so they believe the lie, the Big Truth is a truth so threatening to both left and right that both left and right reject it. The Big Truth is threatening to the left, obviously, because it shows what the left’s projects really consist of and where they are really heading, which, if people understood, they would stop going along with the left’s projects and start seriously resisting them instead. The Big Truth is threatening to the right because the right is invested in the basic goodness and harmony of our existing society and in maintaining a general consensus concerning that goodness. A dawning understanding of the true radicalism of the left would force the right to fight the left, it would lead to civil war and counterrevolutionary struggle, bringing to an end our current system based on toleration and consensus.
