The Truth Tellers Strategy
Recently, I was hunting through numerous bookstores trying desperately to find a full-timeline Western Civilization history book that is worthwhile.
It did not go well.
Most of us know you can’t trust anything that has been printed in recent history. But even in my efforts to find a somewhat modern but somewhat old school history book, it is still proving nigh impossible.
Almost all of them are corrupt in some fashion.
You come across the big names like H. G. Wells, and have to deal with the fact that even though it’s an older era (early 1900s), it’s still hopelessly debased for those that know true history. While he may use the old nostalgic terms we like, he still preaches debunked evolution theories, abandoned out-of-Africa theories, and blank slate nonsense. He also downplays the West to elevate the East, for no practical reason.
Even those older history books are still marred with progressivism and Enlightenment ideals, even if it is a bit more rugged in its approach.
For example, the infamous Story of Civilization by Will Durant, one of the most well known historical accounts of all history, is likewise hopelessly wicked. Just look at the man’s background:
Durant fought for equal wages, women’s suffrage and fairer working conditions for the American labor force. Not only did Durant write about many topics, but also he put his ideas into effect.
He worked to improve the understanding of viewpoints between people and tried to convince other to forgive human beings for their failings and waywardness. He chided the comfortable insularity of what is now known as Eurocentrism by pointing out in Our Oriental Heritage that Europe was only “a jagged promontory of Asia”. He complained about “the provincialism of our traditional histories which began with Greece and summed up Asia in a line” and said they showed “a possibly fatal error of perspective and intelligence”.
Yeah, that sure sounds like a true dissident winner of an older era (if you can’t tell, that is sarcasm).
His book reflects these personal objectives, even at the cost of the truth.
Even the book I often reference, A History of Civilization by Charles King, is barely adequate. I only reference him because he is the best of a bad pile.
The simple truth is that nearly everything since the Enlightenment is tainted in some way. Even my own writings, to an extent. We all are sucked into this vacuum and it damages us all in some way.
The last time we had something free of this plague was Christendom. Everything since has been perverted in some fashion.
We all cling to some lie from the Enlightenment, which permeates through our philosophy and outlook on life.
I realize I could dig deeper and get some of the old English history books, but they are a complete struggle to read. No one wants to read and attempt to translate every other word of a massive text, which the book must be to be even worthwhile to read (considering the length of our history).
While looking through all of these old texts, the same thought repeatedly came to my mind: We need a dissident historian. Someone who can create A Story of Western Civilization, from the vantage of a dissident.
But we do not need just a single historian. This problem applies to all genres and all texts since the Enlightenment.
We need truth tellers of all stripes: Novel writers, historians, philosophers, theologians, et cetera. Individuals that fully return to Christendom or at least fully escape the secular materialist mindset and the Enlightenment lie.
Consider theology. Look around you, most of our religious “authorities” (pastors, priests, and so on) are weaker than the laymen. They won’t speak the truth because they are too afraid to offend or get cancelled and lose their paycheck. We have an absolute scarcity of people stepping up and putting the work in. Instead, we have tens of thousands of people just silently accepting defeat and collapse.
We are in a desperate need of real truth-speaking pastors and truth-seeking theologians. The same goes for history books, and philosophy books, and other avenues of similar subjects (podcasts, videos, etc.) to reach normal, everyday people.
But few are out there doing it. Far too few to make it of any sizeable effect.
Not everyone needs to be a leader, or an organizer, or a businessman. Some people need to just share the truth. Their contribution, when multiplied by others doing the same, is just as important as the former group. Nearly every leader will tell you that they would rather have a few dedicated followers than thousands of lukewarm sideliners. But right now we have the latter. This has to change if we are to succeed.
We have had very little truth since the Enlightenment lie was promulgated. We need our guys to change that.
Going back to my main gripe of this article, if just one dissident made a true, quality work of history that escapes the blinding falsehoods of modernity, that work would be legendary. I also would buy a minimum of ten copies, if that is of any incentive. Such a work could be shared with dissidents worldwide and could directly correct the weaknesses of our collective understanding of history.
But no historians are stepping up to the plate. The same sad reality is true for our theologians, our philosophers, and so on.
We need to awaken these individuals and put them to work. There has been no other time in our history when this has been so important. The enemy is producing lie after lie, with no counterbalance. We are being overrun with falsehoods. Future generations will not have even a semblance of truth if we do not share it with them; if we do not keep the torch lit.
Sharing the truth is powerful, no matter how small your contribution may seem. Never lose sight of that.
