We cannot afford the luxury of dealing only with like-minded people, nor should we wish to. Limiting oneself to information which reinforces ones preconceptions is to behave as the organised Left do, with their 'No Platform' strategy. By refusing to consider opposing views, these people block out any chance of being proven wrong, thus condemning themselves to be forever in an ideological prison.
Blindly defending an ideology without questioning it, is akin to a cult-like devotion which aids those in the aloof leadership ranks, and is detrimental to genuine understanding. Only those who are perfect are immune from making mistakes, and thus have no need to be open to change; no one of that calibre is alive in the world today, and those who believe they are, clearly need to be kept from positions where they can influence the lives of other people.
Whilst the No Platform mentality is largely manifested amongst Reactionary Marxists, the organised Right is also guilty of policing those who allow themselves to be categorised as being within the ideological fold. One only has to think of all the rival organisations which spend more time recruiting from one another than they do gaining converts from the mass populace. Ironically, it is very common for the leaders of the rival groups to preach of the need for Unity against the common enemy; Unity which they insist can only be achieved under their leadership!
In a time when the false dichotomy of Left and Right, Capitalist and Communist, etc, is clearly giving way to the new unified socio-economic and political ideology of Communitarianism, it is absurd that the old divisions are so vigorously defended. The great danger to the Establishment lies in an awakening of those who are hypnotised by the Left-Right charade. Should those who are willing to actively fight for their principles come to realise that the real enemy is laughing at how easily they can be manipulated to fight one another, then a shift of focus from futile and self-destructive squabbling, to vital and realistic action, could be achieved. It is precisely to prevent such an awakening that the rival factions are allowed to continue, even to the point of being ineffectively legislated against, in order to create a false feeling of validation through persecution.
We cannot afford to sit in ideological ivory towers, refusing to communicate with those who do not share our views. If we refuse to speak to those who are not already aware of the underlying reasons for the woes of the world, then all we will be doing is preaching to the converted. If we are to have any chance of defeating our enemies, we need - at the very least - to weaken their support base; that requires preaching to the misdirected but active useful idiots. For those with a religious disposition, it could be said that our task is not 'to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.'
We must engage with everyone who is ready to explore the fact that all is not well with the world. To that end, we have to link up with people who have information which can help to unravel the web of deceit which keeps the Establishment in power. There are many disinfo agents in every organisation, faith and coming-together of like-minded people; especially that which has become known as the Truth Movement. The presence of infiltrators and economically-motivated opportunists does make our task harder, but it does not in any way justify doing nothing. If we are to overcome the global enemy, we must reach out to those who can help, in however small a way. By building loose networks of active individuals, we can limit the damage-capability of the Establishment-appointed leaders of the 'truth movement.'
What we need is genuine leaderless resistance. We cannot hope to awaken the masses. The sheeple have always submitted to those who lead, and are probably incapable of doing anything but. What we need, is to awaken the misled activists, and the opinion formers. Quality is always far more important than quantity. With the best people of every belief, culture, nation etc, fighting for a restoration of freedom, the international order will fail, and a new world will emerge in which can flourish all who appreciate the value of freedom and justice. The sheeple will just as happily graze in freedom as they do in the materialist servitude they cannot even contemplate. Our task is to awaken the shepherds; then the sheep will follow.
