Modern American Society, Part II

George WashingtonWell, so here we are … at the beginning of the 21st Century, looking backward in time and all too often (or so it seems) criticizing our founding fathers because they were … well, human.  I want to say two things about our founding fathers: most of them served at a tremendous cost to themselves, both personally and financially; some were ruined by our Revolution.  The other thing is that our founding fathers had tremendous faith in mankind, and the genesis of mankind.  Even in spite of their distrust of organized religion, nearly all believed that man’s place in the universe was no accident.

“It is impossible to account for the creation of the universe without the agency of a Supreme Being, and it is impossible to govern the universe without the aid of a Supreme Being.”  —George Washington

Not everyone today gives much credence to the notion of moral truth, or self-evident truth.  I suspect that this is because for over three-generations, our society has become increasingly hedonistic.  I believe that where we are today in society is the product of modern liberalism (also, neo-liberalism) which rejects morality and assigns greater importance to social justice than it does to an individual’s fundamental rights[1].

Neo-liberalism undermines our traditional values, such as our protection of the weakest among us; the most glaring example of this is the rampant abortion, particularly among the poor, the colored, and the stupid.  We have escalating urban violence, principally within black communities in the worst of our cities (St. Louis, Detroit, Baltimore, Newark, New Orleans, Chicago).  Out of wedlock birthrates are up, and so too are divorce rates, and substance abuse resulting in pre-mature death.  Who shall we hold responsible for these ever-mounting statistics?  Here is who I hold responsible: both Clintons, Barack Obama, Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, John Podesta (each of whom I believe are on the payroll of George Soros) —and all of their liberal appointees.  It is not the progress of America they are seeking; it is its destruction.

Neo-LiberalismNeo-liberals are seeking a confused society, and this is entirely intentional.  They insist, for example, that a parent has a right to choose abortion, but has no choice about the schools their children may attend.  This amounts to moral confusion —which is exactly what modern liberalism hopes to achieve.  A confused people, a frustrated people, are more likely to “drop out” of the electoral process —and this always ends up with Democratic majorities in the House and Senate.

We must not allow the liberals to confuse us about such things as the sanctity of human life, or the importance of traditional family, or the value of our nation’s history.  Crime is not new, but what is new is that criminals are telling judges and juries that they weren’t sure about what was right or wrong.  Who is to blame for this?  Well of course, bad or absentee parents … but also liberal teachers who brainwash their students, rather than educating them, and the media (liberal mouthpieces) who do the bidding of the Soros Cartel.

So, dear reader, if you value a free society, understand that it cannot be maintained without two parent families —adults who are involved in loving their children with a firm hand.  Today there are too many criminals precisely because crime pays … and we need to stop that.  More people carrying licensed concealed handguns will help reduce violent crime because only an idiot will attempt an assault on someone if there is a good possibility that person is armed.  We could always use fewer idiots.  We also need fewer crack-babies, fewer teenagers who think there are no consequences to sexual promiscuity, who think that planned parenthood is a viable alternative to good common sense.

The sinking of the foundation of morality as the old discipline was allowed to lapse, then the rapidly increasing disintegration, then the final collapse of the whole edifice, and the dark dawning… when (Rome could) neither endure (its) vices nor face the remedies needed to cure them.  — Livy

There is something else we need a lot less of: liberals.

Note:

[1] Let me be clear about this: true Americans value individual rights; Marxists think that individual rights must give way to the quest for social justice.  Marxism is problematic when you consider who it is that decides what is just; in all likelihood, it will be some psychotic in the same tradition of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Robert Mugabe, or any number of Islamist sheiks.

    We are hedonistic because we don’t believe there is any evil left to resist. imo

    I hold the entire democrat party responsible.

    How to navigate back to America… Once again, I don’t think it is possible before a majority of the population learns the truth through maximum pain. Maximum pain will not be pleasant. Probably won’t happen in my lifetime. I’d hate to be a kid, or maybe not? Gonna be a whole lotta shakin goin on.

      I think there are scientists who are finally applying some logic to the notion of planetary design. One presentation I have enjoyed on several occasions is a video titled The Privileged Planet. Follow the link for an agreeable and up-lifting 90 minutes. You can find another exceptional presentation here … Dude, go for it.

      I do agree with you that Neo-liberalism is the engine, but at the same time I would have to say that stupid voters are the coal that drives the liberal train. To continue with this metaphor, I don’t think we can find our way back. Our country is too large to effect meaningful societal changes, and certainly not within a short time. Our one-parent families, pregnant teenagers, an education system that is completely broken, a government that encourages brain-filth, and a church hierarchy that went to sleep ages and ages ago … well, the train has already left the station. Now, all I can do … all that I am prepared to do, is sit back and watch the show.

    Yes, while the demise of two parent families isn’t the only problem we face, as a result of Liberalism, it is serious. This is clearly on display, ubiquitously. It takes a hell of a lot more than a “Village”, Shrillary!

      Exactly, John … that one statement (book) proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that Hillary Clinton is communist filth. What did Lenin tell us? “Give us the child for eight years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.” It does NOT take a village to raise a child; it takes two loving parents.
