The question arises whether a global power that is not guided by a globally relevant set of values can for long exercise that predominance.
Unless there is some deliberate effort to reestablish the centrality of some moral criteria for the exercise of self-control over gratification as an end in itself, the phase of American preponderance may not last long, despite the absence of any self-evident replacement.
In many respects, the gravest moral charge that can be leveled against twentieth-century totalitarianism is that—unlike law-governed democracies which try to constrain moral deficiencies and religions which aspire to elevate individual morality—both the Nazis and the Communists deliberately abetted the moral deformation of the human being
==Out of Control: Global Turmoil on the Eve of the 21st Century (Zbigniew Brzezinski)
“We’ll adopt emergency ‘temporary’ totalitarian measures, until one day we’ll awaken to find we have grown so much like the enemy that we no longer have any cause for conflict,” —Ronald Reagan, 1961.
As Michael Gold of the New Masses put it in response to the poet Ezra Pound’s support for fascism: “When a cheese goes putrid, it becomes Limburger, and some people like it, smell and all. When the capitalist state starts to decay, it goes fascist.”
==Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning (Jonah Goldberg)
Our courts have scrubbed America’s schoolrooms surgically clean of every vestige of the religion on which this nation was founded—Christianity. Indeed, in fifty years we’ve gone from a nation unified by traditional Judeo-Christian values to one in which those same values are increasingly scorned, rejected, and demonized. What’s going on? Are today’s Americans inherently more morally confused and depraved than previous generations? Of course not. But we have been taken in—big-time—by some of the boldest and most brilliant marketing campaigns in modern history.
==The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised As Freedom (David Kupelian)
When the progressives took over American education at the beginning of the 1900s, their goal was to use the schools as the means of changing America from a capitalist, individualistic, believing nation into a socialist, collectivist, atheist, or humanist nation.
The minds of millions of American children are being crippled, their futures handicapped, their self-esteem destroyed by educators who should know better. This criminal malpractice is going on in virtually every community in the nation. And yet, there is little one can do about it. The professors of education won’t listen; after all, they write the textbooks. The book publishers publish what the educators want and what the textbook committees will adopt. The classroom teachers know no other way to teach; the professional organizations promote these faulty methods; and principals, administrators, and superintendents leave the teaching of reading to the “experts.”
==Crimes of the Educators (Blumenfeld, Samuel) ( A Must Read Book)
I can not say that I am a particularly religious man, in fact I can not say that I even truly believe in God, certainly not the God of the Bible. However, raised as an Episcopalian, I still enjoy attending church from time to time, particularly during the two most significant Holy weeks of the Western Christian faith where I do experience that Kierkegaardian “leap of faith”, a transcendent spiritual belief held simultaneously with the logic supporting my disbelief. Kierkegaard described it as that almost surreal point where a ballet star leaps into the air and defies gravity for even a brief instant in time. I mention this only as a prelude to the astounding story below. For despite my lack of religiosity, I know how significant the moral and ethical laws of Christianity, more broadly those of the entire Judaeo-Christian heritage were, not only in the creation of this nation, but in keeping America together as a nation-state over the generations since then.
The destruction of Christianity has been and remains an essential goal of the globalist, elite ruled socialistic tsunami that has been for many years now inundating every corner of America and which threatens to wash away all resemblances of a once free, vastly predominant Christian people. It will soon drown what remains of America’s essential spirit. Christianity, patriotism, nationalism all must be replaced by a flaccid acceptance of a nation-less subservience to the transnationalist capitalist class and the states that serve them.
Our educational system has already been dumbed down beyond the likelihood of any redemption, at least for several generations, if ever we seek to recover what has been purposefully destroyed. John Dewey and his many socialist acolytes have won the battle, perhaps the war. It has not been an evolution without direction. It is not natural selection, it has been forced covertly and now more blatantly openly upon us. The insidious patience of the progressive socialist revolutionaries that set the course of our national self-destruction is astounding.
The process has been slow enough for most to not even notice and when there were cries in the wilderness, they have always been muffled by a small, but very focused and powerful elite controlling the mechanisms of information and propaganda. Even when the words spoken were incontestable absolute truths, truths supported by facts that either were disregarded or perverted into insignificance into the dark, inaccessible holes of national memory. We have become a nation of dumbed down, astoundingly ignorant and docile sheep not by some innate genetic inferiority progressing over the ages, but by the intentional policies of self-interested elites.
There should be no wonderment by those with a semblance of independent mental capacities at the extraordinary openness now in the corruption, deceit and lies spewing forth from the likes of Hillary and Obama and the vast, loose conspiracy of intent of an elite that can now rob us, spit at us and laugh all the way to the bank or the Presidency without any cares for the destruction sown. No wonderment, because these elites, as with anyone with a functioning mind, know full well the extent of our civic and intellectual degradation as a nation, such that it matters not anymore what atrocities see the light of day. For we are now putty in their hands. We have crossed the threshold into the dystopian horrors of former nightmares.
Can an uneducated, functionally illiterate, State dependent mass of lobotomized citizens ever hope to reclaim our rights and end this disgusting parade of corruption and contempt from those who seek to enslave us? Unfortunately, the source of the best answer for this question resides with the same elites who have driven America and the world to the point of global tyranny–and they have spoken with actions louder than any words.
First destroy our educational system, creating creatures of servitude. Corrupt the whole notion of family, first through subsidies preferencing the fatherless mothers, then by destroying the whole notion of civilizationally important gender roles. Why not an American majority comprised of LGBT families propagating through baby factory farms as in Brave New World? Then, synchronously with the suppression and eventual destruction of the predominant religion supplant it with one of a transnational, borderless variety. Environmentalism fits this need perfectly. Then take away the borders and allow an open floodgate of the illiterate, poor and criminal to further pollute the rapidly decaying culture. Finally, along with the completion of the total surveillance states invasive and coercive powers transfer most of the remaining national sovereignty over to the transnational corporations and their ultra-wealthy masters. The Nation disappears and all that will be left is the transnationalist fascist capitalist empire once called America.
The Fabian socialists have clearly won and unless we rise up and exert our rights of citizens of America now we are, frankly, toast.
Where is the outrage– a black (racist) woman (sexist) serving her country has her life ruined by the mostly white men who run our nations military corps? Oh, but wait, there is a trump card that overwhelms all other issues–she is a Christian and proud of it!
A United States Marine was convicted at a court-martial for refusing to remove a Bible verse on her computer – a verse of Scripture the military determined “could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline.”The plight of Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling seems unbelievable – a member of the Armed Forces criminally prosecuted for displaying a slightly altered passage of Scripture from the Old Testament: “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”Sterling, who represented herself at trial, was convicted February 1, 2014 in a court-martial at Camp Lejune, North Carolina after she refused to obey orders from a staff sergeant to remove the Bible verses from her desk.She was found guilty of failing to go to her appointed place of duty, disrespect toward a superior commissioned officer, and four specifications of disobeying the lawful order of a noncommissioned officer.
