What Has Happened to America......DO NOT MISS THIS!

What Has Happened to America

First remember that:

"Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."

                                                    Thomas Edison

There is a growing divide in the country and day by day it grows deeper and more irrevocable. All around us we see the signs of our failure and the coming collapse, signs built into the very system itself.

If you reward indolence, it will become the norm, if we practice wholesale slaughter from the womb you will reap the consequences. If we celebrate slatterns and degenerates and ridicule the wholesome and traditional we will wind up with more of one and less of another.

The further an organism lives from it's natural state, the more adaptable the organism will become to that which is unnatural.

Today's culture has bought into the acceptance, legitimization, and glorification of false desires leading to normalization of deviant behavior. Unfortunately, it's been a long time coming.

Once you get into your inner desire to drive social standards, you get deviant and defiant outcomes 
against the natural order and it's created purpose. Ultimately, only misery and confusion will ensue.

The further we drift from what we were meant to be and to do as human beings the more we become disoriented, obese, dysfunctional, angry, depressed, violent or passive in the extreme. These responses are the natural outcome of unnatural circumstances and we should be in no way surprised that the more we extol and promote such systems the more often we will see such behaviors. It isn't surprising, it doesn't require any in depth studies or introspection beyond the obvious.

We are a product of our time and place. We live in a dystopian future that makes Brave New World look positively mundane in comparison. Mass shootings are the natural outcome of a society that mentally shackles its population while pumping it full of psychotropic drugs and violent imagery. It tells us to empathize with women while objectifying them via pornography and then denies young adult males the benefits of a loving wife and family unless he meets an impossible standard or forces him in direct competition with females both academically and in the workplace, putting off family formation until such a time as it is far too late for many.

I could go on but you get the picture.

What is happening is- in my opinion- engineered, by satan and those under his control and influence.

We are being led, deliberately and inexorably to the abattoir. The only question is, are you willing to submit?

That said, I am in danger of losing hope in America both as an idea and a reality. I fear for the heart and soul of this country.

Something has happened to America in the last couple of decades: a large part of the population has conceded its future to a government that grows bigger and more intrusive every day. Rather than take their heads out of the sand and admit that they are passing along a fiscal monster that's going to devour the prosperity of foreseeable generations, they choose to accept:

The eternally and historically flawed methods of socialism that are being promoted by a president who seems determined to change the very essence of the American Dream, A sold-out Senate, A Congress whose leadership blinks every time there's a confrontation, and A Supreme Court that's about one appointment away from being a presidential rubber stamp.

The government that was founded to serve the people has turned the equation around and now they believe that the people are supposed to serve the government.

Good Government requires Good People.

History is not full of good governments, or good people either. And America is a lot less full of good government and good people than it used to be.

"A State cannot be constituted from any chance body of persons, or in any chance period of time. Most of the states which have admitted persons of another stock, either at the time of their foundation or later, have been troubled by sedition."

           Aristotle

Just who is "America" these days? Hard to tell. We've let in quite a few "other groups", both at the time of our founding and after.  And we're paying for it now.

"Viva La Raza" ("Long Live the Race") chant the Mexicans, both legal and illegal, who crowd and riot throughout Southern California (or Aztlan, as they call it).

"Reparations!" is the cry of black people, even if they got here last Thursday from someplace like Trinidad or Sudan.

"Respect our religion!"  Muslims shout, while they show no respect for their host country's religion – or anything else about their host country, or anybody else's anything anywhere, for that matter.

From this, can we build a great country, a bright future and a peaceful, happy society?  Not likely!

What went wrong?

From the 1920s to the 1960s, forces on the Left began a coherent, if not centrally controlled campaign to destroy Western Civilization, thinking (as Jean-Jacques Rosseau did) that it was the cause of all our problems.   This "revolution" reached a crescendo in the 1960s and then crashed, with everything (apparently) returning to normal. But it wasn't so. Many people on the Right thought that the Left's war on American culture ended, or became unimportant anyway, with the end of "the Sixties," a period roughly defined as from 1963 through 1974. Universities weren't in flames anymore, so who cared?

Conservatives returned to money-making and Cold War strategies,and forgot about the whole matter.  After all, they reasoned, how important is culture anyway?

But culture was important, and we are seeing the results of a fractured culture now.

While the Right was busy with the commerce of America, the Left was conquering academia, the arts, the media, and the government bureaucracy. Elections be damned, governments are mostly run by the faceless functionaries whose names we never can find out – and they know it.

Why is this a problem? 

I refer you to the above quote from Aristotle. "Sedition" is a rather tepid word for having riots in your streets.   "Chaos" or "Anarchy" might be a better one. Two thousand years ago, Aristotle was able to bluntly and directly point out that you can't put dogs and cats (or lions and lambs) together in the same space and expect good results especially for the lambs.

Want some more recent, scientific evidence?  Robert Putnam (author of the bestselling "Bowling Alone") researched the effect of ethnic diversity in America in 2000.  What he found shocked him so much that he hid the results for six years, until 2006.  Asked why in a Financial Times interview, he said he hid the results "until he could develop proposals to compensate for the negative effects of diversity."  

What were these shocking results and negative effects? Diversity kills community. Let me say that again: The more diversity you have, the less people are going to participate in your community.  

Then "the Sixties" happened.  Social norms went out the window as "Do Your Own Thing" arrived.   Often talked about as a "civil rights" movement, what happened was actually more along the lines of an iconoclastic, institution-smashing meltdown. Having smashed all these institutions, they then demanded that the goodness those institutions had produced (no thanks to them) be shared, gratis, with everyone  – essentially, with the whole world.

Now, after that sharing is done, we have diversity – and nothing else.  There is no "community" anymore.   Do you know your neighbors' names and family stories?   All of them?    Any of them?  How many of them would you trust alone with your children?  That used to be a cultural baseline.   Now it's a sign of "bad parenting," or even insanity.

Our culture, such as remains of it, is decried as "racist" and is expelled wherever it is found. And the future, far from looking brighter than the past, now looks like a one-way ticket to the third world!

The Seventies brought an influx of newly "liberated" women into the workforce, effectively doubling the amount of available labor. This had the "unexpected" but completely predictable effect of depressing wages for the next forty years.   They were joined by millions of new immigrants as a result of the 1965 Immigration Act.  

The eighties brought more foreign workers as yet another "Immigration Control" act was passed, giving amnesty to 4.5 million illegal aliens.  (Only 4.5 million?  Ah, the good old days.)  Naturally, all these new would-be workers that couldn't get jobs needed government benefits until some jobs came along, and up went the government's budgets – and up went crime rates, too. The 80s also saw the rise of the "grievance industry" where trial attorneys sued large corporations for any offense, real or imagined, objective or subjective, winning eye-popping "damage" awards for clients who claimed to have been denied something – anything – on the grounds of "discrimination."

Companies got the message.   Tired of being repeatedly kneed in the wallet/groin, they saw to it that barriers of all kinds – to anything – were swiftly removed.   Quotas were put in place, and harsh penalties for not meeting them were enforced. Your skin and genitals would now determine whether you got the job. Whether you could actually DO the job was a secondary consideration. American society was now under attack from inside and outside, from the top and from the bottom.

Suddenly, America, a country famously tolerant (for centuries) as the "land of opportunity"  – found herself abandoned by all sectors of polite society as "racist", "patriarchal", "homophobic", "islamophobic" and less printable slurs. Our society, painstakingly built on self-reliance, community, national pride and a common, shared culture, came apart at the seams.

I realize some people, particularly on the "PC Right," may be cynically laughing at my description of America as a "famously tolerant" country throughout history. But let me point out that when people  all around the world genuinely wanted opportunity… they didn't go to France. Nobody is swarming over the borders of Bangladesh or Burma expecting three hots and a cot.    This country, throughout history, has been more welcoming than any other of human beings in need. People everywhere wanted to be "Americans."People don't want that anymore.

Is it any wonder our country is unraveling?  After the past fifty years, no one even pretends to believe that America's future is brighter than her past.  The only question now is how far down we are going to fall, and how hard we will hit bottom.

"Every nation gets the government it deserves."  — Joseph de Maistre (1811)

"The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws." – Publius Cornelius Tacitus

With the combination of ever-growing government growing ever-worse, and the plague of "diversity" eating away at our once great and now shattered society, I don't think we'll have these problems very much longer. Change is coming, it will be big, painful and shocking in both it's power and scope. America may not survive.

Once a society becomes successful it becomes arrogant, righteous, overconfident, corrupt, and decadent … overspends … costly wars … wealth inequity and social tensions increase; and society enters a secular decline.

When an empire is at its peak and people can fool themselves into thinking "the empire has always been prosperous, we've solved all of the problems, and we will always prosper",incidentally, this type of false thinking was also common in the 1920′s, when government and financial leaders said that the "modern banking system" – overseen by the Federal Reserve – had destroyed instability once and for all.

On top of all of this there Is no courage in the White House or Congress to practice long-term thinking, and to make bold, courageous, anticipatory decisions.

They pass out billions of dollars in contracts to their political allies and subsidize companies that have no hope of succeeding while they exempt those they choose from the programs they're forcing the rest of the country into.

They can use government agencies to punish their enemies and walk away with impunity.

They can selectively enforce the laws of the land, ignoring the laws that don't fit their agenda.

They can hire thousands of agents to enforce their will on the public.

They can forsake Americans in the Foreign Service - leave them to die without even attempting to rescue them.

They can look into a television camera and lie with a straight face.

Both the Democrats and the Republicans are dismal failures.

Amidst all this there is great frustration, a smoldering, white-hot anger that only awaits a rallying point to ignite and become the most motivated political force in this nation. If there has ever been a time in the history of this country for a true leader to step forth, it is now, we have fallen so far that those that could help have absolutely no desire to wade into this stinking swamp.

It's time for a bold step, a political party that has no obligations to any corporations, unions or political action committees. A party that is impervious to the ridicule of the media, that is willing to begin in an humble way at the grassroots level, enlisting the loyalty of those who truly want to get America back on the path to sanity and capitalize on small successes building an army of true believers brick by brick.

HERE ARE A FEW MORE PROBLEMS AND SOME QUESTIONS WE ALL SHOULD BE ASKING:

College education is prohibitively expensive with no guarantee of a good and meaningful job at the end.

Healthcare while more available than ever is still too costly.

Income inequality is among the highest in the world. The 1 percent don't get it that you can't have a viable society if wealth is concentrated mainly in the hands of a very few. Modern economies are kept afloat by spending by the middle classes. If the middle classes don't have as much money to spend, then the whole economy suffers.

When did freedom change from something we should all be seeking to something we're supposed to be terrified to face without the government holding our hands?
 
When did we stop asking, "Can we afford this?" along with "Is this a good idea?" when it comes to government programs?

When did sticking to the Constitution and living within our means become "extremism?

When did we come to believe that we would never have to pay off our debt?

When did the job of the press change from reporting the news to doing everything it can to support and foster the agenda of the powers that be?

When did demanding that people come to this country legally if they want to stay here and become citizens become too much to ask?

When did our immigration policies become centered on what's most convenient for illegal immigrants instead of what's best for the American people and those who want to come here legally?

When did the comfort of Americans today start to become more important than giving future generations an opportunity to have a better and brighter future?

When did debates about politics stop being about whether certain policies work or not and start centering on the intentions, motives, and personal characteristics of the person on the other side of the issue?

When did the definition of "Racism" change from an expression of hatred towards another race to an expression of disagreement with liberal idiots?

When did God's definition of marriage, the same definition that has been around for millennia, become discriminatory?
