Progressives believe that the oppressed are in a righteous and historic battle against their oppressors: the struggle. The struggle’s fighting rules don’t conform to the dictates of traditional morality except by necessity to avoid the penalties of law. Under newthink, traditional tenets of behavior don’t apply to those perceived to be oppressed.
the struggle n : a long-term fight for liberation by progressives against perceived oppressors which is unrestrained by traditional morality
struggling vt : fighting by progressives against perceived oppressors which is unrestrained by traditional morality
Dishonesty, theft, violence, even mass murder such as the 9/11 attacks – these may all be considered necessary tactics, even progressively-virtuous tactics, in the context of the oppressed struggling against their oppressors. Though progressives view themselves as compassionate to all, they are ruthless to their enemies. The Enlightened are fiercely opposed to those who purposely reject their moral code of political correctness. The newthinking pseudoppressed can be remorseless against their pseudoppressors. Saul Alinsky, the father of leftist “community organizing” and author of Rules for Radicals, stated that “in war the end justifies almost any means.”* He went on to say, “In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.”**
The struggle is waged not just against the wealthy. Devout progressives unconsciously perceive society as a battlefield. Their unconscious omnimarxism compels progressives to struggle against every type of oppressor they see through the filter of their worldview. The rich, European-Americans, heterosexuals, men, America, Christians, God — all of these, as ruthless oppressors, must be endlessly fought.
