“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

The day the world ended

September 11th, 2001. Quite literally the day that the world, as we knew it, ended.

Think of where you were on that day. Every single one of you older than the age of about, oh, 8, will remember perfectly. If I ask you what you thought on that day, 19 years ago, you don’t need to think about it. You simply know.

Think of what the world was like before that day, before 8.45am EST. Yes, we were all dealing with the massive hangover left by the long-overdue deflation of the Dot-Com Bubble. Yes, the world looked a bit scary and uncertain. Yes, the USA looked like a bit of a laughingstock after Floriduh suffered from a severe case of electile dysfunction in November 2000 and the SCOTUS had to step in to sort the whole mess out.

But overall, the future looked pretty bright. Liberal, globalist values were on the ascendant. “The End of History” that Francis Fukuyama had predicted following the systematic dismantling of the Soviet Union – done without firing a shot, a direct result of the Long War fought by St. Ronald Magnus of the Right – looked like the right call. Economic growth looked like it had hit a bit of a speed bump, but would resume sooner or later under the benevolent guidance of highly skilled, highly educated technocrats like Alan Greenspan and others.

Then the first of two airliners smashed into the World Trade Centre. And in that maelstrom of fire and fury, in the midst of the screams of horror and pain and anguish from onlookers in the streets, in the blood of hundreds killed instantly and thousands more who died over the course of that day, that old world died.

The world that we have found ourselves in since makes less sense by the day. The reason for this is very simple. The world as we knew it back then was built on lies.

Islam was not capable of peaceful coexistence with the Western world, and it was Islamic radicals – which is to say, people who wanted to go right back to the roots of their unsupportable heresy – who made that claim, not Westerners. They had actually been making it for decades – the problem was that Westerners had not been listening.

The technocrats and plutocrats that we trusted to guide us were in fact blind men and fools, trying to understand an elephant by touch and coming to all of the wrong conclusions. Their policies of liberal Western democratic secular government simply did not work and were totally untenable outside of very limited applications in the Western Christianised context.

The supposedly “limited” wars of intervention embarked upon in the previous decade turned out to have turned world opinion hard against the West, but the Western world never stopped to take notice of that fact.

And it turned out that Francis Fukuyama’s “end of history” thesis was wildly inaccurate and optimistic – while Samuel Huntington’s “clash of civilisations” idea was actually correct.

The worst result of the past 19 years has certainly been the near-complete loss of integrity and faith within Western institutions by the people of the Western nations. All of the above, and many more factors besides, have led to a crisis of confidence in Western institutions that has culminated in riots, looting, violence, and anarchy in the streets of the West’s greatest cities.

How did this happen?

Looking back, it is clear that the Western world permitted influences and corruptions, and the actors who engaged in that nonsense, to infiltrate its greatest nations for decades prior to 9/11. The neoconservatives, in particular, were one of the worst of the bunch. If you actually look at the neoclowns, they were almost entirely unreconstructed Trotskyites who believed in global socialist revolution but got either chased out or disowned by the socialists that they so ardently supported for so long.

It is also clear, with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight – quite literally, in this case – that the divide that we now see between the governing class, and the governed class, started growing decades ago, long before even Ronald Reagan took office. In fact, Ronaldus Magnus’s election was very similar to that of His Most Illustrious, Noble, August, Benevolent, and Legendary Celestial Majesty, the God-Emperor of Mankind, Donaldus Triumphus Magnus Astra, the First of His Name, the Lion of Midnight, may the Lord bless him and preserve him. It was a massive reaction to the corruption, folly, sanctimony, and stupidity of the governing elites. And it worked – for a time.

But eventually the old system took back control, at least for a little while, and led the West down the path of disaster followed by catastrophe with almost monotonous regularity.

We didn’t notice simply because so many of us were distracted by the modern equivalent of bread and circuses – which is to say, endlessly rising stock prices and increasingly stupid reality TV-driven news cycles.

That world ended 19 years ago. The world that we have seen since has been nothing short of a nightmare in many ways. I reckon that many would be happy to go back to the world of blindness and lies that we were all in for so long.

But that would be foolish and ridiculous. What we are dealing with today is the necessary price that we must pay for our past follies. The West is going through an extremely harsh Time of Testing, and we have to go through this in order to burn away the lies that have clouded our visions for so very long.

We can no longer believe that Islam is compatible with Western values – it is not, never was, and never will be.

We can no longer tolerate the lies of the globalists, who want us to think that nations do not matter and that irreducible differences between peoples can simply be papered over and ignored.

We can no longer listen to those who argue that wars fought to civilise peoples who do not want Western values and beliefs, and will not accept them, are acceptable or right.

We can no longer live with those who attack the True Faith and persecute its followers and refuse to let us worship in peace. We have been kind and respectful and decent to them for quite long enough. That time for tolerance is long done.

The Long War between Islam and the West was brought home to everyone in the rudest terms possible 19 years ago. It is clear to me that, looking back, we were being told in no uncertain terms to make a choice. And for the vast majority of that past 19 years, we made the wrong choices.

It is up to each of us to decide which side we will choose from here on out – to choose comforting lies and illusions, and thereby continue to pay a terrible price, and thereby ignore those slain on that day and in the endless wars ever since; or to choose the harsh, painful, miserable truth, that leads to the Truth, and thereby pull ourselves out of the holes that we have dug for ourselves.

    I had just gotten back from my 15th High school reunion the Sunday before.

    The nation was talking about (a) then California congressman Gary Condit’s affair with a young staffer; and (b) an unprecedented number of shark attacks on humans which had happened the previous summer.

    I was out of town on business. I had just started a new job 6 months before, and had just left a church and started going to another one.
