The writer even details how it's happened without the purging of hundreds of millions of individual citizens to get to the point where the government owns GM and Chrysler now, and will own Citigroup shortly.
"First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics."
I, as a college composition instructor, can speak to this. I commonly use tons of classical references in everyday speech--alluding to everything from the Bible to Shakespeare to classical mythology (i.e., Greco-Roman), to historical documents, to--well, anything that seems to suit the situation.
Most of the time, no one catches what I'm saying. A telling example of this happened in grad school, when a classmate a year ahead of me dressed as a pimp for Halloween. I didn't recognize him, until he called after me, asking about a reading assignment. I responded, "Oh, I'm sorry. I took thee for a fishmonger(referring to Ophelia's father as a pimp)." Without remembering the next line ("Would thou wert so honest a man"--he didn't do his work, and used a criticism jargon-loaded vocabulary to hide it), said classmate, who was writing his thesis on Shakespeare, took it as a compliment: "Oh, you recognized what I was dressed as."
Statistics say that some three-quarters of students entering college need remediation in math before they can do basic level algebra, and two-thirds need remediation in English before they can write a full paragraph. I don't doubt this. Many of my students can barely read, and remediation does not seem to do those who've had that not-for-credit English class any good in forming sentences or paragraphs.
"Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different 'branches and denominations' were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the 'winning' side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another."Karl Marx himself said that religion is the opiate of the masses. Communists, those who don't believe in anything but their own power and privilege, and who use those who believe in the ideals, sneer at religion in general, and at Christianity in specific. Why? I believe it is because Christianity in specific calls for moral absolutes set by someone other than the government.
And the highest authority is not the government of the land.
I understand, on an intellectual level what the ten commandments say. I understand, on an intellectual level, that there are gray areas in the continuum of right and wrong, but I also understand (even if only on the same, intellectual level) that there are moral absolutes also on that continuum. That it is absolutely wrong to commit murder. It doesn't matter if you're an individual citizen drunk in a brawl, or a mother-to-be on an abortion doctor's table, or a serial killer stalking your profile victim (your mother, usually, or maybe sometimes your father. It is absolutely wrong to steal. It doesn't matter if you steal through sneaking into someone's house while they're not home, through holding a gun to their head, or through someone who isn't willing to work using the government to take money from someone who is by voting in new social safety net spending.
In any case, there are moral absolutes beyond what the government mandates. Communists don't like there being anyone having authority besides thier own self-appointed elite. Especially not God.
"The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe."
This, quite frankly, is appalling and terrifying--especially in that last clause. I'm sure most of my readers are familiar with the term "Weimar Republic," but may not be able to place it in historical context right off the top of their heads. Let me refresh your memories of relatively recent history:
In other words, I'm pretty sure what we're accellerating toward is not Marxism, but national socialism. The parallels are there: a relatively young, charismatic politician that nobody knows anything about elected by violent hoodlums and ignorant twits that bleat for change? Check. Vicious and accellerating recession, heading straight into depression? Check. Nationalizing key industries? Check. Check. And check. Teaching our children that nothing (especially not core knowledge gathered by dead, white males) is important but social justice? Very much check.
We're fucked, people. The common populace has realized that it can vote itself bread and circuses.
