“After America: Get Ready for Armageddeon”

April 30, 2012

“After America: Get Ready for Armageddon”

The title of this blog is actually the title of a book written by Mark Steyn. The book was published  by Regnery Publishing, Inc. in 2011.

I will recommend that you read Steyn’s book, given that it provides a highly informed and referenced prediction of America’s demise as a Republic and World leader.

This is an excellent book, if you can tolerate Steyn’s fascination with his own unique style of Katy hyper-cleverness while he portrays America’s seemingly inexorable evolution from freedom to socialism, suicidal levels of debt, and the continued swift erosion of all things that once made America a World power and leader.

The author’s own words will best describe the threat of our cultural demise:

The following is taken from Steyn’s pages 20-22.

A is for ADDICTION: We spend too much, borrowing from the future to such an extend its’ n longer clear we’ve got one.

R is for REDISTIBUTION: Day by day, an unprecidented transfer of wealth from the productive class to the obstructive class is delivering a self-governing republic into rule by regulators, bureaucrats, and social engineers.

M is for MONOPOLY: Old ruling Class: “We he People,” New ruling class: “We the People who know better than you frightful people…” America is ruled not by a meritocracy but by a cartel of confomicrats imposing a sterile monopoly of outmoded ideas.

A is for ARTERIOSCLEROSIS: “Yes, we can” ? No we can’t! By comparison with the past, America is already seizing up.

G is for GLOBAL RETREAT: As Britain and other great powers quickly learned, the price of Big Government at home is an ever smaller presence abroad. An America turned inward will make for a more dangerous world.

E is for ENGINEERING: “Celebrate Diversity”? The ideological homogeneity and social engineering of the nation’s schools would be regarded as child abuse in any other age. Aside from its other defects, it diverts too many Americans into frivolous unproductive activity, while our competitors get on with the real work.

D is for DECAY: Mired in dependency and decline, much of he United States will be on a fast track to the Third World. And, no matter how refined the upscale communities the elites retrench to, it will prove increasingly impossible to insulate yourself from the pathologies a decadent liberalism has loosed to rampage Godzilla-sized across the land.

D is for Disintegration; We are becoming the highly singular United State of America. No advanced society has ever tried hyper-regulatory direct rule for 350 million people. Will it work? Or is it more likely that increasingly incompatible jurisdictions and social groups will conclude that the price for keeping fifty stars in the flag is too high? Without the American idea, there will be insufficient glue to hold the United States together.

O is for OPEN SEASON: Do you find it hard to imagine a world without America? The Russians, the Chinese, and the would-be New Caliphate don’t. And on a planet where rich passive nations are defenseless while every failed state from North Korea to Sudan is butching up, it’s not hard to figure out what comes next.

N is for NUKES AWAY: addiction, Redistribution, Monopoly, Arteriosclerosis, Global retreat, social Engineering, Decay, Disintegration, Open season, Nukes away. Put them all together and they spell…?

Finally, from page 23…

That America’s animating principles should require any defence at all is a melancholy reflection on how fare we’ve already gone. Live free—or die from a thousand soothing caresses of nanny-state sirens.

Like I said, if you want a happy ending, it’s up to you.

Your call America.

End of quotes.

If you did not take time to answer the question…What “they spell…”?

It is ARMAGEDDON.

The Astonishing Marxist Transformation Of America!

April 21, 2012

The Astonishing Marxist Transformation Of America!

Robert Chandler has written two books of great importance to the survival of America. Chandler is a retired Air Force Colonel who has a Ph.D. in Political Science. He is a veteran of the Vietnam War.

One book is entitled The Shadow World: Resurgent Russian, The Global New Left, and Radical Islam. The other is: How Marxism Has Infiltrated The Catholic Church.

What follows are quotes and paraphrases taken from an introduction to How Marxism Has Infiltrated The Catholic Church, written by Cliff Kincaid, President of America’s Survival, Inc.

It is reported that Italian Communist Antonio Gramsci’s writings appeared in the U.S. market, published by Carl Marzani, a former KBG agent who was subsidized by the KGB. The book was entitled: The Open Marxism of Antonio Gramsci (1957).

Kincaid writes:

“Christianity is considered a prime target in preparing the way for a ‘Marxized America’, since religion, as an independent center of societal values, stands in the way of creating a new culture based on what is deceptively called ‘social justice’ and ‘change’. Religion, in the Gramsci view, is the foundation for the Western values of individual liberty, private property, and the traditional family, and must be abolished in order for the new communist society to emerge”.(p.5)

“Religious faith was singled out by Gramsci as being especially troublesome, since Christianity has a tendency to create an ‘apolitical fatalism’ among the oppressed.  He believed that Catholicism and Christianity must be combated through a strategy of driving a wedge between the churches and their followers to establish a new civil society”. (p.5)

“The nuclear family is a main target. Efforts are made to break a child away from his/her parents’ way of life and values through promotion of acceptance of abortion, homosexuality, same-sex ‘marriage’, unmarried adult living arrangements, and sexualizing child behavior. Catholicism and Christianity, as shown in Europe’s fall into a dark pit of socialism and secularism, also would have to be undermined in order to transform American Culture. Socialism and secularism are partners in ‘Marxizing the inner man.’ For the progressives-socialist-Marxists conducting the subversive drive toward ‘social justice’ in America, the values embodied in Catholicism and Christianity stand in the way of their success and therefore must be destroyed”. (p.11)

I have a natural distrust of conspiracy theories, and I am very cautious about such things. As a psychologist, I have worked extensively with clients who suffer from various forms of delusional disorder. If you buy-in to their assumptions, the delusions can be quite convincing. With all such things intense reality testing is ones only defense.

Regarding Chandler’s warnings about  a Gramsci-based strategy for Marxising America, the theory appears to organize all of the facts that I know of. The facts of attacks on religion, on the family, on traditional values of right and wrong, on sexual restraint and modesty, on traditional sex roles and preferences,  on independence and individualism, on business through increasing governmental regulation and taxation, the purposeful limitation of our energy resources, the division of America into competing factions based on ethnicity, and so on. All of this, a seemingly incomprehensible blizzard of events destroying the very essence of what American Culture has been from its beginning; all now organized and explained.

Explained as a new Marxist strategy based upon a decades-long unremitting labor to use major elements of the  free American system to destroy it using primarily peaceful methods. This new theory does what all excellent theories do.

It accounts for virtually all the data. Furthermore, it explains and predicts outcomes and allows for the control of the events under study.

Of course we scientists will always assert that “correlation is not causation!”. But, at this rate, by the time causation is demonstrated beyond a reasonable doubt, we will be living in A New Marxized America.

I advise you think long and hard about this new Marxist revolutionary theory, reach your own conclusions and then vote accordingly!

May God Forbid An American Civil Race War!

May God Forbid An American Civil Race War!

There are so many events moving against a recovery from America’s Great Decline.  I have discussed many of these self-defeating impediments in my blog and I have provided evidence for my concerns all along.

The following grave concern is about just one more potentially devastating blow against the greatest Republic the world has ever seen.  A Republic that after 150 years of life, simply and increasingly, began to do all of the things necessary to destroy itself.

And now, rumors of an American Civil Race War.

I can only hope enough Americans will read (and view the videos) in this, and other related resources and then clamor at our leaders to do all possible to avert this grave danger.

The Burka vs. The Bikini and Free Choice: Point vs. Counter-point

April 14, 2012

The Burka vs. The Bikini and Free Choice: Point vs. Counter-Point

I asked you to think about this cartoon the other day.

Now, lets compare a couple of perspectives.

It is common to equate the lack of freedom of choice with coercion: perhaps  at the point of a sword or gun barrel.

One of the fatal flaws of Western Culture, and especially the American Culture, is to believe that we humans have  “free choice” when we do not have a gun, or other threats,  pointed at us.

This massively important issue, directly related to America’s survival, is the focus of B.F. Skinner’s book, Beyond Freedom and Dignity. I hope you will read this book very soon. If you do so, and really think about its main points analytically, you will extract some profound insights.

One major insight is that when we are not coerced to do a specific thing, and are given a choice as to what we will do…we think we are actually free from control.  Indeed, we do feel most free under these circumstances.

But feelings of freedom absolutely do not mean that we are free from the genetic and environmental/cultural forces that have dictated and shaped our behavior patterns since our birth—the very same forces that will continue to shape our behavior patterns untill our deaths.

For example: There is less choice regarding the bikini than you might think. The power that naked (or near naked) females have over males, the modeling and imitation influences of the media on females, the fact that the garment industry provides little choice but revealing apparel (even to mothers of very young female children), and the fact that individual males reinforce increasingly naked sexualized females with their attention, and material and sexual favors, and more…invalidates the “free choice” theory about American female dress (or lack of dress).

Indeed, the barrel of a gun, or a pile of thrown stones, is an important part of what motivates the burka. On the other hand, I have heard Muslim women extol the virtues of the burka and defend it vehemently as the proper attire for Islamic women. The burka has become a positive reinforcer for these women and much more than the threat of violence has been involved. In fact, many of the non-violent/non-coercive determinants of human behavior involved with wearing the bikini are also involved with wearing the burka.

With the bikini, a pile of high-velocity/high-powered positive reinforcers, plus the dreaded thought of “not fitting in”, or the fear of not obtaining these social reinforcers if the female does not conform to the American rules of the sex game, motivates showing more of their boobs, buns and “fertile crescents” than ever before.

I find the psychology of cultural evolution, for better or worse, simply astonishing!  As America’s male population has began to habituate to the increasing exposure of females  formerly private parts, the “weaker sex” has  learned to “chum the waters” with strategically located sparkling jewel piercings and suggestively alluring tattoos. Of course, all of this  is also being done through the amazing powers of human free choice.  ; – )

With the wearing of either the bikini or the burka, “free choice” is more an illusion than a reality. This is so with all of our behaviors, both the good and the bad (if I may be so bold as to use such labels in this era of moral relativism).

Culture is sometimes defined as the actions and artifacts of a specific population. But, at the root of it all, culture is the contingencies of reinforcement, extinction and punishment (and other social  psychological learning principles) that motivate human actions and the production of their artifacts.

These things form the “unconscious” underworld of cultures and they , along with other physical forces, power cultural evolution.

Any culture that does not understand and use this knowledge to its advantage will not long survive.

“We Are In The Very Midst Of A Revolution”

April 12, 2012

We Are In The Very Midst Of A Revolution”

These words of John Adams are profoundly apropos  to President Obama’s fascist,  dictatorial and revolutionary assault on America in this 21 st. Century.

At present, the Obama administration appears to be purposefully “Abscent Without Leave” with respect to the various things that it could do to quell the building racial tensions, the race-baiting, the rumors of race-war, and the barbarous calls for the murder of the shooter of a black teenager, as well as the shooter”s family.

John Adams must be rolling in his grave.

“Objects of the most stupendous magnitude, and measure in which the lives and liberties of millions yet unborn are intimately interested, are now before us. We are in the very midst of a revolution the most complete, unexpected and remarkable of any in the history of nations.” –John Adams, letter to William Cushing, 1776
