“Woe to the land whose king is a child and whose leaders are already drunk in the morning. Happy the land whose king is a nobleman, and whose leaders work hard before they feast and drink, and then only to strengthen themselves for the tasks ahead”. (Eccl 10: 16-17)


"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat


Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

It All Begins in the Public Education System

If you want to know why or how this nation can have raised a generation that is so appalling ignorant of its own system of government, a system of checks and balances designed to prevent any one individual or institution from lording it over the people, please read the following quotation.

"[A]bout a hundred years ago, Professor John Dewey of Columbia University came up with a very different conception of education -- one that has spread through American schools of education, and even influenced education in countries overseas. John Dewey saw the role of the teacher, not as a transmitter of a society's culture to the young, but as an agent of change -- someone strategically placed, with an opportunity to condition students to want a different kind of society. A century later, we are seeing schools across America indoctrinating students to believe in all sorts of politically correct notions. The history that is taught in too many of our schools is a history that emphasizes everything that has gone bad, or can be made to look bad, in America -- and that gives little, if any, attention to the great achievements of this country." --economist Thomas Sowell

Let's take what any citizen/patriot understands - the United States is NOT A DEMOCRACY. It never has been nor should it ever become one. The Founding Fathers despised democracy which they regarded as nothing but RULE BY THE MOB. Being the students of history that they were, they had learned the lessons of the city states of ancient Greece and were thus determined to prevent such a system of government from developing here in the new nation that they were constructing.

As I mentioned in a previous post - one of the fears of the Founders was the TYRANNY OF THE MAJORITY. That is why they gave us a system of checks and balances and a separation of powers within a REPUBLIC, based on a system of FEDERALISM - The fact that this is not widely understood nowadays is a testimony to the ignorance of this generation.

Here is the pertinent clause in the US Constitution:

Article IV, Section 4
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

Note well - it does not guarantee the States a DEMOCRATIC Form of Government.

It many cases it is not the fault of the teachers but rather the school boards and the administrators which dictate what can and cannot be taught in the classroom. Based on what we see in today's society, the teachers' unions, school boards and administrators have raised a generation of dupes. If we want to take back our nation from the grip of those on the left who would impose their version of utopia upon the rest of us, then we had better start looking at what we allow our children to be taught and even more importantly, make the time to get involved in their education.

They are our children and the future of our nation; not wards of the state to be indoctrinated against our own values and traditions.

  2. I really lost it with George Bush when he said he "wanted to bring democracy to the Middle East."
    The idiot didn't seem to understand that his own country wasn't a democracy.
    Look how well democracy is working in Egypt.

  4. I recommend to study the history of the "Frankfurter Schule". A group of jewish emigrants, that Hitler has thrown out of Germany, that planned the destruction of the European culture.
    This process found it's culmination in Europe in 1968, where jewish propagandists managed to make the stupid goyim to applaude, if paedophilia was promoted and practized (Otto Muehl), or if feces were put on a table and declared art (in Austria with the jewish chancellor Kreisky, this sick perversity was even aplauded by minsters).

    While in Europe this '68 Revolution totally succeeded, and destroyed Europe's culture, the USA as their base was treated somehow differently. Also because of the federal organization of the USA, the huge size, the elements of direct democracy and free speech, that protected the people from this coup of a certain minority full of eternal hate against majority. 3000 years living everywhere as minority, despised because of their greed, has turned them into even more fanatic enemies of all people.
    For the USA they needed much more time than in the highly populated and centralized european nation states.

    Especially the practized culture of freedom of speech was a big problem for them in the USA, while in Europe it never existed: The mass media since 1945 were under total control of the Zionists and Philosemites.

    Therefore the concept of "political correctness" was developed as the main tool, to undermine freedom of speech and to manipulate the thinking. BTW, it's a main goal of Marxism to get control over the language, because according to Marx, who controls the language, can determine the meaning of words, and therefore can control the way people think.

    There is a war going on:
    http://youtu.be/rA7Ymki71fM
    The biggest genocide in history. Without military weapons but with the weapons of mind control that makes people unresponsive and "tolerant" about their own destruction, the destruction of their own race.
    Otherwise they would be called Nazis or Antisemites. Before being called that way, they prefer that their children become foreigners in their own country and their culture is destroyed.
    As long as white people do not bravely stand up and oppose the lies openly, as long as they are let themselfes be tricked into Republicans VS Democrats, or Gun Control VS Mass Shootings discussions, instead to focus on the forces behind the transformation into destruction, the fate of the White America is as clear as the fate of Europe.
    As long as the brainwashing is that successful, that white people INGORE what the jews themselfes already admit openly, there is no hope. No hope for Europe. No hope for the USA, which has turned into USrael already anyway.

  5. Thanks Dan,

    My research into the predominate source of all the ills you highlight boils down to basically one entity that has slowly but surely made great inroads into the USA and is still very much alive and well.....

    1. FOAM_RANGER;

      Isn't it astonishing that no matter how much misery and ruin across history and nations that communism has produced, and the totalitarian crushing of individual rights and freedom that always accompanies it, there are still ignorant fools who embrace it as some sort of panacea for the ills of mankind.

      George Orwell's classic "Animal Farm" should be required reading for this dumbed down generation. The only problem is, it would probably not be able to understand just whom the pigs in that novel are symbols for!

  6. That's all part of the Marxist/Globalist strategy to tear America part slowly from the inside out...like a cancer.

    Read Charlotte Iserbyt's, "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America".

    http://www.deliberatedumbingdown.com/pages/author.htm

    Or watch her amazing interviews on Youtube of how she grew up in the elite system and became aware of this plot against America by corrupting our youth and she came out and has told all. Too bad so very few people listen...

    But her story is amazing and she tells it so thoroughly and with such great detail you just can't stop watching.

    the above is just one of many video interviews with her...

      thank you for sharing that website. There are some amazing articles posted there by that gal. Very insightful stuff and very alarming but all of it makes perfect sense when we look at the results of tinkering with an education system that once produced students who KNEW HOW TO THINK.

      Critical analysis is almost dead among many in this age that are coming out of our modern schools. Not only are they utterly devoid of any knowledge of our own unique heritage as a people, but they are completely unable to sift through the speeches of the modern day demagogues that infest our society and see them for the illogical and nonsensical pontifications that they are.
      The Scriptures teach us to "GET WISDOM AND WITH ALL YOUR GETTING, GET UNDERSTANDING". Would that this generation were capable of so doing.

      Perhaps we might yet end up preserving our freedom were it so.
