One consistent theme here at the Chariot of Reaction is the desacralization of the edifices of the Cathedral. Although allegedly secular, the Cathedral most assuredly uses a 'sacred' status of many of their beliefs and institutions to shield them from direct assault. It is by breaking the legitimacy and loyalties surrounding them that we make them vulnerable to destruction, albeit often more self-destruction than anything we few can muster.
Consider education, probably the central node of the Cathedral. One reason why we advocate and support homeschooling here so much, even, or perhaps ESPECIALLY by elements of the left and far-left, is because homeschooled kids, by the mere fact of their existence, desacralize the public education system in the minds of the population. They undermine that norm, especially when they succeed. There is no more dangerous class to the cathedral than the set of homeschool moms.
Consider the Judiciary, another major node---and one I often liken to a diode or a one-way ratchet. By degrading the esteem that it is held in, mocking it and holding it up to ridicule, we make direct assault on it thinkable (e.g., widespread jury nullification and impeachment for no other reason than we don't like their decisions). The truly beautiful thing is that the Judiciary is helping us along right now. In many of its decisions this year, no matter how they decide unless they can somehow pull a Solomon, their prestige will be badly bruised. I just love hearing Obama talking smack to them about Obamacare.
Consider also the Media. Trayyon continues to pay us dividends long after his bones have been interred. The media's esteem is shrinking rapidly. Hopefully there will be a series of incredibly expensive lawsuits against them over their handling of the case. I know how good reactionary jurors should rule in said cases, don't you?
Consider the once mighty 'anti-racism'----i.e., anti-whiteness. Yes, it still has the power to punish, but it has no moral suasion left in it. Carry on the ridicule and mockery, and where possible, aid the punished.
Consider lastly the civil service bureaucracy. Our worsening balance sheet will eventually give us an opportunity to put paid to them once and for all. When you speak of the 'spoils system', you no longer get regurgitation of the old turn of the 20th century progressive arguments anymore from Joe Public. They know that the system IS the problem. Give them time, and they might even be willing to talk about alternate systems that have historically sucked less.
The Cathedral is rotten, and most of its priests are just going through the genuflections, counting the days before retirement. This decade presents the opportunity to consign it to the ash heap of history.
