The Left is moving rapidly to change America forever.
Except for isolated pockets of resistance, as displayed during the 2021 Virginia’s elections, decades of Left’s preparations are paying off for reshaping America into a unitary totalitarian state.
Starting with the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, the Left has acted like Chess Grandmasters. They devised a detailed strategy, thinking and implementing many moves ahead of their opposition.
The Left’s actions, many decades in the making, is nothing less than “Terraforming” America into their Communist vision. They are deliberately, and systematically, modifying America’s institutions, civic culture, and society to make them more habitable for their heralded “Great Reset”. John Holdren in his own (radical) words - CFACT
The “Great Reset” is the global destruction of capitalism, democracy, and freedom in the name of ending climate change. The Great Reset | Reset and shape the future It is about eradicating “white privilege”, and the institutions and culture of “white exploitation”, to remake society based upon “equity, diversity, and inclusion”.
It all began with Stuart Chase, one of the founding members of President Franklin Roosevelt’s (FDR) “Brain Trust”. Chase coined the term “The New Deal” and promoted eliminating America’s free enterprise system “by firing squad if necessary.” The Rise of the Administrative State - The New American
Chase gained inspiration and insights into how to implement a Communist state during his 1927 meetings with Stalin and Trotsky. In his 1932 “New Deal” book Chase mused, “Why should the Russians have all the fun of remaking the world?”
FDR’s Brain Trust thought well beyond building the massive New Deal bureaucracy. Rexford Tugwell, another “Brain Truster”, drafted a “Constitution for the New States of America”. His goal was nothing less than remaking America as the next Soviet Union. Constitutional Convention | Proposed Constitution for the Newstates of America (sweetliberty.org)
Tugwell’s Constitution abolished all aspects of federalism. It eliminated states, turning them into uninform administration districts with equal population. It abolished the “Bill of Rights”, creating a laundry list of “Rights and Responsibilities” for citizens to act on behalf of the state. Any individual actions could be erased based upon “declared emergencies” and for “conforming to such standards as may improve health and welfare”.

The Left’s “Terraforming” of America is guided by the Chase/Tugwell vision. Capturing the cultural levers, and the media were achieved by the 1960s. Dumbing down the youth, and ultimately indoctrinating them, began with Howard Zinn’s 1980 revisionist history, “A People’s History of the United States”, which became the standard high school textbook for a generation.

A parallel project was shrinking civics education to the point where only 23 percent of eighth-graders perform at or above the proficient level on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) civics exam, and only 26 percent of Americans can name all three branches of government. 020618_CivicsEducation-UPDATED.pdf (americanprogress.org)
An intensified phase of Terraforming began after a 2011 Harvard Study revealed that participating in historical/patriotic celebrations promoted conservative voting patterns. Harvard: July 4th Parades Are Right-Wing | Politics | US News
The Left realized that America’s history must be reshaped to achieve the “Great Reset”.
The Left had to prevent Americans from separately honoring the morality and integrity of Washington and Lincoln by, in 1971, lumping all 46 Presidents together. Since then, all other Presidents, including mediocrities like Pierce, Fillmore, and Carter, get to dilute their commemoration.
Communists usually use economic jealousy as their wedge issue. Focusing on America’s racial history was determined to gain more traction.
In 2019, the Left, through the New York Times and other media, launched their 1619 History Curriculum Project. Project1619 Under the banner of “inclusive history”, “Critical Race Theory“ (CRT), and dozens of other labels, versions of the 1619 curriculum rapidly spread to thousands of schools.
Demonizing everything that made America, America, was their final solution. Their mantra became “a country built on stolen land and slavery”. U.N. Official: U.S. Founded on Land Stolen From Indians, Built on Race-Based Slavery, BLM Movement Is Result | CNSNews
1619’s politically correct “wokism” declared “everything is racist” and built cases for eliminating the Electoral College, the Senate Filibuster, the Senate, our Founding documents, the American flag, America’s National Anthem, and even the nuclear family - aligning with Tugwell’s Constitution.
Reshaping our collective memory, and the physical touchstones that validate our memory, are directly from the Communist playbook.
Eliminating statues and eliminating holidays are central to Terraforming America. Once our national symbols and rituals are uprooted, American society will be adrift, ripe for reshaping. Juneteenth is now considered more “inclusive” than the July 4th. One day only the “woke” holiday will remain. Citizen Oversight: ASSAULT ON JULY 4th
The Left is methodically replacing the existing “pro-America” calendar with their “Advent Calendar for Anarchy”.
We are now expected to annually focus on Floyd, Ferguson, Charlottesville, and January 6 instead of major milestones, like the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.
The Left has a hundred-year head start and commands the levers of power. It will take years of dedication, courage, and providence to turn the tide.
