The Christians in the Roman Empire had begun asserting themselves in the first half of the 4th century. In that half particularly, they were in the mode of dismantling the entire Greek/Pagan society. It’s Gods, temples, philosophers, their work, sciences, libraries. Everything. Something that the world has not recovered from till this day.
One of the ways that the movement and destruction of the society happened was when persecution was crowd sourced. When private citizens began to take on the power of law enforcers, militias and spies to do what they were brainwashed into doing by powerful orators in the Church.
When neighbor is turned against his neighbor, a kid against his family, then the infection runs deep.
In such a state, where anarchy is the goal, powers-that-be outsource the policing and spying to brainwashed laypeople.
When Gunja Kapoor went to Shaheen Bagh and was hounded, robbed, tortured and abused by the private militia of the violent mob illegally occupying the road, it was an example of the writ of the state being overturned by a private militia.
But that was stage One of the agenda for anarchy.
The next level is to turn common people into snitches and spies. And, that was what the Christian leaders of Roman Empire did in the first half of the 4th century. To increase the scale and speed of the destruction of the Greek society.
This strategy was mastered and created by John Chrysostom, who is known as a ‘Saint’ in Christian theology.
Why is this important?
The society is overtaken by fear. And that effectively dismantles the existing society in all its ways. Here is how Augustine, another one who was anointed as a Saint in Christendom, looked at fear created out of anarchist strategy of turning neighbor against neighbor by instilling espionage by laypeople as the norm.
The obvious question for you would be – Why bring up all that now?
Because this is a time-tested method of anarchy and social upheaval. Nazis used it to the hilt.
Neighbour turns on neighbour; old friends become deadly enemies. And the wrong surname, even the wrong accent, can get you killed. It sounds like the stuff of nightmares. But for hundreds of millions of Europeans, many of them now gentle, respectable pensioners, this was daily reality in the desperate months after the end of World War II.

Case in point – the straying of Gunja Kapoor in Shaheen Bagh and the Leftist-Liberals calling it an “intrusion” and private militia “arresting” her and beaten up. “Saved” somehow by the police.
And then this. She starts by de-legitimizing law enforcement and the state constitutional institutions and then proceeds to lay the ground for Chrysostomian strategy – turn families upside down. Brainwash kids and youth to turn on against their families in a bid to prevail over for a political and ideological agenda and goal!
The battle for Indian society is not “out there”, guys. It has been brought into your homes! And the “enemy” who is being groomed is your most loved one.
Weaponized ideological warriors within our families
So what if she said that? Can such things even happen?
Heck yes. They can. And they are happening.
In complete disregard for the personal rights as citizens and as loved ones of the parents, a trend took off in Delhi this time. Kids weaponized and brainwashed by this lady and others had locked their parents up in the homes so not to allow them to vote! Why? Because these kids felt that their parents will vote for BJP. Something that these zombies were programmed to think of – as evil!
This is the most frightening manifestation of the Chrysostom strategy of creating social anarchy.
Another manifestation of this turning neighbors against neighbors strategy is called doxxing (search for and publish private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.)
I have also read and heard from people I know that many Leftist-Liberals activists are now working to hurt their careers. This happened in a state where the local government was sympathetic to those who were implementing this strategy – Kerala.
Vyas Vishwanathan, a Doctor by profession, was doxxed, accused of being genocidal without any proper evidence and ultimately forced to resign from the hospital he worked in at Palakkad, Kerala.Opindia
Many other cases have happened, although not reported.
Conclusion: It starts with demonizing
What was once the way of life, soon became the way of the devil in the Roman empire.
While the Greeks and other pagans kept harping on “All Gods are the same” narrative and trying to understand why would someone be so vicious to their Gods, the Christians were clear in their intent and understanding. While for Greeks it was just a matter of “One God versus Another”, for the Christians it was about “One true Christian God vs Pagans’ Satan.”
The ideological planets where they were coming from were light years apart.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”CS Lewis
What for one (Greeks) was tyranny, for another (Christians) was carrying out ‘God’s work’.
This is not about dinging Christians or saying that they are responsible for the anarchy that is being sowed and pushed in India right now.
It is about the strategy. And lessons from history.
Lessons that were used by the Nazis, the Muslims, and the Communists.
If we don’t learn from that and quickly understand as to what is to be done to save our society, our families and our way of life, then we will be ripe to perish.
At the beginning of the 4th century, hardly anyone would have believed that the Greeks’ way of life, their Gods, their temples, their science, literature, philosophy and their books were at any risk. So widespread was the expanse of that whole culture. Yet, at the beginning of the 5th century, hardly anyone could have believed that such a culture, Gods, work, science could have ever existed!
Just One century.
That is all it took when there was no social media to spread anarchy.
Don’t rest on any kind of assurances.
