Today, we can see the Left is still using the same playbook, as their motivations and political goals remain the same. They retain all of the moral shortcomings that Rand wrote about over fifty years ago, including when in 1964 she wrote a chapter in her nonfiction book, The Virtue of Selfishness, which is a collection of essays written by her and Nathaniel Branden that lay out the principles that make up her Objectivist philosophy.
Racism, as a collectivist pursuit, was anathema to her strictly individualistic Objectivism. To her, all forms of collectivism be they socialism, fascism, or racism were immoral on the basis that collectivism on the national level, ultimately and inevitably leads to authoritarianism and the trampling of individual rights by the government. Racism therefore, would necessitate that same authoritarian brand of government that all other forms of collectivism required in order to sustain itself on a national level.
Wokism has evolved into a pseudo-religion filling the cultural and spiritual void created by the abandonment of classical religious beliefs such as Judaism and Christianity in favor of the secular dogma of Cultural Marxism.
A natural one to exploit was the race struggle of blacks and other minorities in America. Modern socialism though Cultural Marxism/Critical Theory continually seeks out new "victim" groups to stoke tensions between them and the predominant group, so black against white, rich against poor, secular against the religious, etc.
As explained in the article, CRT in its ultimate form is anathema to all American conservative thought. The objective of its proponents is nothing less than the complete overthrow of our American way of life in favor of a race-based, fascistic autocracy with unelected leaders at its head.
In an odd way, they've validated the Critical Theory that undergirds their political philosophy, the theory that posits that stronger groups will always subjugate weaker ones. Their recent actions would seem to support this theory.
