“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero (Ancient Roman Lawyer, Writer, Scholar, Orator and Statesman, 106 BC-43 BC)

Enemies
Opponents or Enemies?
 
In any conflict, it is a deadly error to mistake or underestimate theadversary's capabilities, will to employ them, or ultimate goals.Around the globe, what was once confidently deemed “Westerncivilization” is in an end-stage battle with champions of a collectivist and
 
statist ideology which, over the last century, has enacted programs of redistributive taxation, borrowing, and spending whose unsustainabilityhas now become self-evident and which, unless the present course isaltered, will collapse in at most ten years. Further, the second- and higher-order effects of 
 
these policies have led to demographic collapse in thesocieties which have adopted them, crippled capital formation and the
 
creation of productive enterprises, and been used as a justification for mass immigration from regions hostile to the culture and values of theWest which have been responsible for its prosperity.Those who would destroy a society, destroy first its language. AsOrwellobserved, when the terms of discourse are corrupted, the corruptionspreads into every domain the language is used to debate. So deep has thislanguage rot penetrated, that it is difficult to write an essay like thiswithout succumbing to it—that is the intent of those who spread thecontagion. The present-day culprits identify themselves as “progressives”or “liberals”. Take a step back and ponder how manipulative this is: if you're a “progressive”, then you must obviously be on the side of 
 progress
, even though the outcome of the policies you advocate willultimately roll back all of the advances in individual liberty and prosperitymade since the Enlightenment; if you're a “liberal”, surely you mustadvocate liberty, notwithstanding that the consequences of your  prescriptions will be descent of society into serfdom for the masses,deemed property of the state, ruled by an unelected, unaccountable elite.These so-called “progressives” or “liberals” are not advocates of progressor liberty: they are
enemies
of them, and the sooner champions of liberty
