The Matrix that is The U.S.A., to borrow the quote of Winston Churchill when referring to the U.S.S.R. in the 1950s, is “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma”.
The key to breaking the code of American culture and society is Marxism, particularly what is known as Cultural Marxism.
Marxists such as Lenin, Krushchev and Gorbachev all boasted that Marxism/Communism would triumph in America, albeit in a slower “long march through the institutions” rather than in a revolutionary outburst as it had done in the 1917 so called “Russian Revolution”.
“First we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia. We will encircle the last bastion of capitalism, the United States of America. We will not need to fight. It will fall as a ripe fruit into our hands.”Vladimir Lenin 1922
“We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find out they have Communism.” Nikita Krushchev 1959
“… In October 1917, we parted with the old world, rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, a world of Communism. We shall never turn off that road.” Mikhail Gorbachev 1987
So to break the Matrix code and understand America for what it truly is, we must master our knowledge of Marxism. The American Matrix is a mirror reflection of Marxism after all, though perhaps a distorted reflection.
Or to put it another way, as Mark Twain is reputed to have said often, “history doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes.”
