Nothing is random - everything is connected. The only proper question is how?

Pseudo-sophisticated modern mainstream intellectuals like to regard everything as random unless 'proven' otherwise - except that it can never be proven otherwise, so that in practice everything is regarded as random except what power states is causal.

In reality (as all humans know spontaneously - such a perspective is built-in), nothing is random, everything is purposive and connected - but usually we do not know the detailed and specific purpose of the causal connections, and nearly-always judgment is required.

The mass media work by fragmentation of knowledge into pieces so small and cut-off that individually considered they are indeed meaningless and acausal - more observations; but adding them together to make sense of them is ridiculed as 'conspiracy theory'.

In other words - the dominant ideology is 'no-conspiracy theory'. This is extremely dangerous when there actually is a conspiracy, and it is extremely powerful.

All Christians need to acknowledge the reality of a world conspiracy of evil - the only legitimate disagreements concerns specific questions of scope and effectiveness - but that there is a global and powerful satanic, demonic conspiracy working through men and by supernatural means is woven-into Christianity. In a world of globalist secular power it would indeed be amazing if the evil conspiracy did not at least attempt to influence and control those people with greatest power - and this is what we find.

The situation is that there are clear intentions, patterns, trends at work at the highest levels of power in the world, and these are very easy to make sense of on the assumption of being a consequence of supernatural evil influence... or, at least, that would be the case if the intellectual elite had not been so widely and comprehensively nullified by several generations of Leftist nihilism. As it is, the majority of powerful, high status, educationally-credentialed people are enslaved by metaphysical assumptions that are incoherent and deluded; so their opinions are worthless at best but most often indirect tools of evil.

So the situation is that it is very clear and obvious what is going-on in the world, where the international leadership are tending and trending - there is a vast and detailed mass of evidence at every level including (most importantly) the level of direct personal experience and knowledge... yet this is denied by assumption: it is denied by saying that it cannot be true - the fact that it cannot be true is assumed, and the task is merely to explain-away the evidence.

For a Christian who accepts the Christian teaching of spiritual warfare the situation is amazing! We live inside a battlefield, in which many of the most powerful participants are denying that there is any battle... but only a sequence of unrelated but well-meaning mistakes and random occurrences!

Indeed, the liberal Christian response to the situation is to assert that the only Christian attitude is to regard all powerful people and organizations as well-intentioned by default! It is assumed (not argued) that it is ridiculous to assert that organizations - especially global ones - might actually be aiming to destroy good things on-purpose... even though they keep doing so over and again and everywhere!

(Note - a brief definition of evil is the strategic intent to destroy the good - so the destruction of virtues such as chastity and of virtuous institutions such as marriage and the family, the inversion of standards of beauty, and the subversion of truth - are all clear and objective examples of evil. All evil is mixed with good, because it works in the context of God's creation - but the intent to do evil is straightforward even though it always entails doing some lesser good as a by-product.)

The idea that there is a powerful and highly influential conspiracy to do evil is ruled-out in advance - not least because the reality of supernatural evil is ruled-out in advance.  

The hope lies among those people who have retained the spontaneous common sense attitude that - overall and in the long run - things happen on purpose; and have this common sense attitude embedded in the common sense context of religion.

The good side is religious; and all religions are truer and better than no religion, because no religion is simply a path to nihilism and despair - the only proper arena for debate is: which religion? That is the sub-conflict within the main spiritual war.

But the Western elites, and great masses of the populations they lead, have the rooted conviction that the acceptable answer is 'anything but Christianity' - and unless this assumption changes, that is indeed what they will get - in the medium term.

But if the powers of evil get what they want, then the longer term will be subversion and inversion of all religions including those which have been (consciously, deliberately) deployed as tools in the destruction of Christianity.
