Every revolution has its scapegoats

The cultural revolution of the Current Year is no exception. Let's see if you can figure out who they might be.

Every revolution has its scapegoats

Without exception, every mass murder — successfully consumated or not — is preceded by a years-long campaign to dehumanize, declass and disempower its targets.

The campaign is a necessary step of the democide, to:

  • prime the authoritarians in society to partake in the mass murder,
  • suppress those people with a conscience who would otherwise speak up against the act,
  • publicly identify the targets, features, groups and identities of the victims, and
  • disempower, disenfranchise, sabotage and bankrupt them so they cannot defend themselves.

Here, we illustrate just a few of the identifiers used in revolutions to target victims.

France, 1793

  • Enemies of the people
  • Enemies of the revolution
  • Girondists
  • Indulgents
  • Aristocrats
  • Criminal Clergy
  • Criminals against Liberty

Russia, 1917

  • Bourgeois
  • Capitalists
  • Counter-revolutionaries
  • Reactionaries
  • Political deviants
  • Kulaks
  • Czarists
  • Trotskyites
  • Mental defectives
  • Wreckers

China, 1966

  • Class enemies
  • Landlords
  • Bad elements
  • Rightists
  • Rich peasants
  • Impure elements
  • Revisionists

Western sphere, 202__

  • Transphobes
  • Racists
  • Bigots
  • Deplorables
  • Sexists
  • Homophobes
  • Xenophobes
  • Irredeemables
  • Nazis
  • Antivaxxers
  • Male-privileged
  • Cis-privileged
  • White-privileged
  • Ontologically evil

The desire of ideologically-motivated, evil, envious, petty malcontents to murder whomever they perceive as their enemies, is a human constant.  The only thing that changes over time is the metaphysical system of insults they use to dehumanize their victims.

Pay close attention to whom they target.  You might very well be next.
