When firefighters are faced with a wild fire that they cannot control, the last means of defense is a back fire. A back fire is made by creating a fire break, destroying vegetation in a wide swath, and then setting fire on the side from which the wild fire is coming. This has the effect of burning up the tinder in a controlled manner before the wild fire gets to it and denying the fire the fuel it requires. This “scorched earth” technique works when all else fails.
In the war with the Left where lies and deceit cause confusion and fool the ignorant, the counter-weapon is lies revealing their deceptions. Most people are woefully ignorant of all that goes on in their government. The only way to get their attention is to counter lies with lies that will inspire them to investigate and discover the truth.
For the moral person, this will work. For the immoral, they will reject the truth and adhere to the lie. These people cannot be saved from themselves, but the moral people who are ignorant can be saved.
Two people in history have written the books on how to wage the war between Good and Evil. Niccolò Machiavelli wrote, “The Prince,” in the 16th century on how to defend the righteous from evil usurpers. Saul Alinsky wrote, “Rules for Radicals,” in the 1960s on how to corrupt and manipulate the masses to overcome the righteous.
In “The Prince,” Machiavelli uses the tactics of the wicked against them. In “Rules for Radicals,” Alinsky details how to use lies and deception to overshadow the truth. There are no two better examples of waging war between Good and Evil than these books.
