Let’s pull back a bit and talk about how the Left does things.
The American Left of the last two generations is highly technocratic. It’s the product of a managerial class, in government and business, injected into the non-profit sector, fused in the last generation with the tech sector and its start-up culture.
It’s evil and its members have a tendency toward hysteria and a blithe ignorance of consequences, but it’s not dumb.
Some of the richest men in America, including Warren Buffett, George Soros, and Bill Gates, can be called many things, but stupid isn’t one of them.
All of this means that the current Left executes strategies in a more focused and strategic manner than past generations. We’re well past the stage where it merely inflitrates. It’s been on the ground floor for a while now. It develops strategies in committees across different organizations, uses a start-up culture to audition and pick different approaches, with funders, often from the tech world, investing in various strategies and organizations being pitched to them.
Conservatives have tried to duplicate this to some degree, but have a fraction of the infrastructure and the organization.
Why does this matter in the particular? Election fraud, like any other major strategy that the Left embarks on, is conducted the same way. That means that there isn’t a single grand conspiracy, but a thousand parallel ones, sometimes networked, other times not networked together, some legal and some illegal, following vastly different approaches in different areas, though funded by most of the same donors.
The key part is that there isn’t a single approach. Anything truly big gets the kitchen sink thrown at it.
It’s why we’re seeing old-fashioned election fraud at the ballot level and all sorts of structural environmental approaches with tactics ranging from mafia thuggery to big data analysis. It’s why conservatives need to understand that there isn’t one big thing, there are a thousand of them, some more effective than others.
The election was stolen one vote at a time.
Anything this big doesn’t have a single explanation. And it’s a weakness to look at just one. The Left certainly didn’t. It did things that were legal and illegal. It tried various approaches, threw things at a wall and saw what stuck. That is how it’s been doing things in the last generation. Ironically, the American Left may be the most influenced by corporate culture. the most capitalistic in a sense, of any other incarnation of the Left.
It’s always thinking about how to creatively tear down obstacles, transform the infrastructure, exploit weak points, and win.
Conservatives like to focus on one area, one target, one threat. The Left takes a very different approach. That is what makes it so dangerous. While conservatives were trying to win the Cold War, it was winning the culture war. When conservatives switched to the culture war, it rebranded as the smart technocratic class and took over Corporate America. When conservatives adapt to fighting that, it will have already moved on to a new tactic. Though it is quite possible that this incarnation of the Left, the corporate one that controls the commanding heights of the economy and the educated classes, is its deadliest form. Certainly its cleverest.
