What Is Critical Race Theory?

April 29, 2021

America: You need to know the answer to this question and defend yourself and your children from this BLATENT RACIST theory, now being taught in our schools!

Critical Race Theory is pure American Socialist Propaganda. See for yourself.

View this PragerU five minute video and learn to recognize this central propaganda tool employed in America’s Ongoing Marxist Revolution.

https://www.prageru.com/video/what-is-critical-race-theory/

The following very short article further explains the harms caused by making Critical Race Theory a part of America’s public school curricula.

https://www.edweek.org/leadership/opinion-critical-race-theory-doesnt-help-kids/2020/10

In short, Critical Race Theory is an central part of the ongoing American Marxist strategy, designed to further weaken and destabilize our society by increasing interracial conflict.

All of this, in preparation for America’s “TRANSFORMATION” (their term), to a federal government controlled “Socialist States of America”!

Why Grandpa Has A Gun

April 22, 2021

A critical component of the American Marxist Revolutionary strategy has always been to confiscate guns from their target population. This is a fact that a large percent of American Citizens do not know.

One of the components of America’s unique, in all the world, Constitution is (among many others) the 2nd Amendment. This states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”.

Among the way that Marxists foment cultural revolutions in societies is to reduce the middle class, destroy the family, stigmatize religion, propagandize the youth via the educational system and entertainment media. They propagandize the adult population by using the news media, as well all other media. They also censor all of the media they can. There is much more to all of this.

But, more to the point of this post, they do everything they can to destroy the Justice system and crime and hatred between races, and numerous subcultures within the target population.

This highly successful method is “age old” and well-known to anyone who has studied Marxist Revolutionary Strategy. Which tragically includes a growing percent of America’s propagandized population.

With all of this explained in brief. I will now focus upon America’s current Marxist attack upon our Constitutions 2nd. Amendment’

What follows is something that has been floating around the internet for a long time. It was sent to me by a Navy veteran and an patriot. I am certain its essence is the truth.

A world history lesson…lest we forget.

The quintessential reason why Grandpa has a gun.  
Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to “A Little Gun History” about half way down.

As Young Boy I Asked His Grandpa: Why Do You Have A Gun?

My old Grandpa said to me, “Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take a whipping.

I don’t carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil; I carry a gun because I have 
lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun 
because I understand the limitations of government.

I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry; I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be 
prepared.

I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun 
because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don’t carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love 
life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron:  Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just come after something has happened, investigate the crime to see what happened, and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I’m too young to die and too old to take a whoopin’!

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY…   BE SURE TO READ THIS…

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control:  From 1929 to 
1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, 
were rounded up and exterminated. 

———————–
In 1911, Turkey established gun control:  From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 
million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated
 
———————–
Guatemala established gun control in 1964:  From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 
———————–
Uganda established gun control in 1970:  From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 
———————–
Cambodia established gun control in 1956:  From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 
———————–
56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control. 
———————–
You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun control laws adversely affects only the law abiding citizens.

With guns, we are ‘citizens’; without them, we are ‘subjects’.

Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed force in the World!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win.  There is no possible victory   in defense.  The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.

SWITZERLAND   ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD.  SWITZERLAND’S   GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.

SWITZERLAND   HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

IT’S A NO BRAINER!  DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL law-abiding CITIZENS AN EASY 
TARGET.

America’s Marxist Revolution: In Cartoons

Psychology of Marxist Propaganda

April 18, 2021

Many principles of psychology facilitate Socialism and Communism’s skillful use of propaganda and other manipulations used to create cultural revolutions. The Oxford Languages Dictionary defines Propaganda as:

“Information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or view.” Information can come in many forms including written words, pictures, music, art, movies, video’s, word of mouth, or actual human enactments.

In psychology, as in all sciences, the discovered principles and laws can be used for good or evil; much as nuclear power can be used to sustain societies or destroy them.

America’s Ongoing Cultural Revolution can be seen as a sequence of cultural “evolutions” (i,e., smaller changes in a population’s behavior patterns learned from teaching, imitation and other sources of social influence. Cultures are forever changing. A bigger, even stunning Revolution can occur when a sequence of smaller evolutionary changes compile to a point that population and governmental behavior patterns “suddenly” no longer resemble their own historical main features. America’s 20th and 21st Century Marxist Revolutionaries, have used the word “TRANSFOMRATION” to describe their goal for America. A “transformation” of something can be described as a change of something into something entirely different. In other word the Goal is a Marxist Revolution of in America.

America’s more slowly evolving sequence of small social, economic and political changes for decades have been moving away from those rules that our Founding father’s wrote into America’s Constitution. These smaller evolutionary changes have been effected largely by a series of radical rule changes imposed upon our states and entire population by an increasingly radicalized, growing, corrupt and all-controlling federal government.

America’s radicalized Marxist Democratic Party, at all levels, has used our schools, universities, the media…and now the political/economic power of big business to increasingly control and propagandize America. They have flooded our society with a variety of, beliefs, theories and ideologies antithetical our Constitution and our traditional values.

The following are a few examples of their Marxist though and behavior changing propagandistic implants into American culture:  Negative and Slanderous labeling, Critical Theory, Intersectionality Theory, Identity Politics, Woke culture, Cancel Culture, Diversity, Inclusion, Equality of Outcome, White Privilege, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ, Sexual Fluidity, Open Borders, Sanctuary Cities, Defunding the Police, Atheism, Secular Humanism, Post-Modernism, Attacking Middle Class Values (Traditional Families and Marriage), Defaming and Destroying America’s Historical Monuments and much, much more. If some of these terms are unfamiliar to you please do a computer search to learn about them. These are just some of the many informational and media attacks that the Marxist Revolutionaries have thrust into virtually every American institution, agency, business, economy, and hearts and minds of America’s population.

These, and other radical Democrat Marxist revolutionary strategies have weakened America’s traditional prosocial and patriotic values, traditions, and population solidarity. This can produce anxiety, anger, even hatred between different races, age groups, religious groups or political groups. This has resulted in profound social divisions and conflicts within our population. All of this, reveals the numerous complex unrelenting Marxist efforts to stress this great nation to its breaking point, and then to “Transform America” to a Socialist State.

I’ll bet that you have recognized many of these governmental rule changes and propaganda efforts impacting your emotions, perceptions, values, beliefs and behaviors of you and/or those of your loved ones. But, what you are unlikely to know and understand are the driving psychological principles that give these Marxist efforts great power. The psychological principles that underlie so many Americans, over-time, moving further and further from respect and affection for our once beloved Constitutional Republic of America; moving them and closer and closer to voting for our Transformation to a Socialist State of America!

Much of what powers population’s psychological change comes in the form of propaganda, as defined and identified with examples above. I would like to help you begin to understand the underlying principles of psychology that account for the effectiveness of propaganda to change the perceptions, emotions, beliefs and behaviors of people.

This is too big task to deal with in a series of short blogs, so it must be simplified in some good way. The majority of the power of propaganda to influence us can be attributed to a single organizing law of psychology: The Law of Contiguity.

The Law of Contiguity can cover a great deal of what we know about learning, memory, emotions, values, beliefs and our acquisition of knowledge. This law states that when things (words, images, sounds, smells, pain, discomfort, or other physical experiences happen in association with one another, or are paired-together in close time, the association between them is learned. When stimuli are paired together, they are likely to be remembered together.

Our brains are association machines. We remember things that happen together and we often learn to expect them to occur together. We can learn our preferences and aversions this way; things and experiences we work to get or, things and experiences we work to avoid or escape. That is; people, things and activities that become emotionally rewarding or unpleasant. That is people or things that seek to experience or people and things that make us anxious, fearful, or terrified and we seek to avoid or escape.

When things are associated together in time we are more likely to learn these new associations and we often learn to expect such things to happen together in the future.

Our brains are “association machines” and by experiencing and remembering (even unconsciously) new associations along with our genetics and our environmental life experiences our appetites, values, beliefs, motivations and behaviors change throughout our lives.

These changes, when viewed from a collective cultural level drive cultural evolution and, under some conditions can summate to a cultural revolution.

This has been a general introduction to my future blogs highlighting specific examples of the propaganda that Marxists/Communists are using during their ongoing attempted Second American Revolution.

“Dear Black Thugs”: A Message For You and All Other Thugs!

April 13, 2021

All that this blog and article addressed, in 2013, has gotten dramatically worse in America. This is because the Ongoing American Marxist Revolution has gained-steam over the past few decades to it’s stunning manifestations today.

The radicalized Marxist Democratic Party has used America’s schools, universities, the media and now the political actions of big business to propagandize Americans. They have flooded our society with ideologies antithetical our Constitution and traditional values. The following are just some examples:  Critical Theory, Intersectionality Theory, Identity Politics, Woke culture, Cancel Culture, Diversity, Inclusion, Equality of Outcome, White Privilege, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ, Sexual Fluidity, open borders, sanctuary cities, defunding the police, marginalizing religion, reducing the middle class, deconstructing the family and marriage, destroying our historical monuments and much, much more.

All weakening America’s traditional values, mores, folkways, and solidarity.  All catalyzing profound social divisions and conflicts within our population.  All revealing the complex Marxist plan to stress this great nation to its breaking point and then to complete its “Transformation of America” to a Socialist State!

“Dear Black Thugs”: A Message For You and All Other Thugs!

The message below is written to black thugs. But it is also a message that expresses my feelings and that of many good American’s about our thugs of all races.

It is certainly not written to the good law-abiding members of our black population who work hard, obey the law, raise their children with love, humane discipline and dedication, and who treat others people with kindness and respect.

I think the author was targeting the black population who are dedicated to intimidating, exploiting and harming others.  These are the  ones you know at a glance, but are afraid to admit  it publicly. The ones that snap a hard-look over to their shoulders when you drive by them; The ones that walk like they are kings of the street and ready for a fight…or worse: The ones that hold “their privates” as they stand around shooting menacing looks…

America’s Ongoing Marxist Revolution Was Predicted in 2003!

April 9, 2021

The following video contains some of the major strategic facts about America’s Ongoing Marxist Revolution. The long growing Marxist influences in our nation that now threatens the demise of our greatest, in all the world,  Constitutional Republic. Here are the critical facts that you must know to intelligently help save America right now. 

The stunning truth is that the video below is a prescient and amazing forewarning of future self-destructive events predicted to occur in America: This, from the year 2003! This video predicts the exact Marxist revolutionary events that are rapidly destroying America this very moment!

Citizens should be terrified to realize that there is no recognizable movement to stop the great momentum of the Marxist Revolution that is destroying our Constitutional Republic.

Maybe our patriots are just numb in the face of recent stunning changes. Some may be naïve and ignorant about our Ongoing American Marxist Revolution. Hopefully,  countless citizens are just seething in anger; waiting for “the flame” that will ignite a powerful American Constitution-based Counter-Revolution. God only knows.

But, one thing appears certain, if HR 1 gets passed in the senate, America’s Constitutional Republic will be destroyed. We elderly citizens will pass-on with proud memories of America’s wonderful accomplishments for its citizens and the world. But these proud thoughts will be tainted with sadness about our collapse into the downward spiral of socialism and the human traumas yet to come.

Finally, there is the additional pain knowing our children and younger loved-ones will be saddled with Increasingly crushing tax burdens and that their precious comparative freedoms from governmental domination and tyranny will rapidly fad into history.

AND, ALL OF THIS HAS HAPPENED ON OUR WATCH!

AMERICAN PATRIOTS, YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST SEE THIS VIDEO AND THEN YOU MUST IMPLORE YOUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES, AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERMENT, TO FIGHT AGAINST AMERICA’S GREAT UNDOING!

WHEN IT COMES TO ELECTION TIME, FOR GOD’S SAKE, VOTE THE MARXIST, SOCIALIST, AMERICAN HATERS OUT OF OFFICE AND SAVE OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC!

The Psychology of Socialism #5: “Escape From Freedom”

April 1, 2021

In The Psychology of Socialism 1-4, I  began to answer a big question: Why do civilizations continue to embrace socialism? This is an economic and governmental system that historically tends to empower a despotic ruling class, reliably bringing, poverty, death and destruction its society and citizens.
A central part of the answer to this question can be found in the 1941 book Escape from Freedom, by Erich Fromm. This insight into human nature is actually a result of our biologically-based universal learning experiences via the principles of psychology.
Fromm explains his great observation:
“modern man still is anxious and tempted to surrender his freedom to dictators of all kinds, or to lose it by transforming himself into a small cog in the machine, well fed, and well clothed, yet not a free man but an automaton.” 
The following clarifying quotes from this book are taken from the many presented on GoodReads.com
Speaking of Europe:
“We have been compelled to recognize that millions in Germany were as eager to surrender their freedom as their fathers were to fight for it; that instead of wanting freedom, they sought for ways of escape from it; that other millions were indifferent and did not believe the defense of freedom to be worth fighting and dying for.”
“When Fascism came into power, most people were unprepared, both theoretically and practically. They were unable to believe that man could exhibit such propensities for evil, such lust for power, such disregard for the rights of the weak, or such yearning for submission. Only a few had been aware of the rumbling of the volcano preceding the outbreak.”
If you read Erich Fromm’s review in Wikipedia you will discover the odd fact that he advocated Democratic Socialism! The very governmental system that has destroyed the many nations, including formerly rich and thriving nation of Venezuela. The very system that now threatens the existence of our own America’s Constitutional Republic!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_Fromm
In spite of this error in judgement, Erich Fromm deserves our respect for seeing and understanding the “big picture” of Socialisms’ and Communisms’ appeal to populations the world around: Under certain conditions, it is in our nature to fall prey to these forms of  destructive political and social psychopathy. This tendency is deeply ingrained in our genetics and our universal human learning experiences.
The science of psychology was in its infancy when Fromm wrote Escape From Freedom, and therefore he was unable to know the many underlying psychological influences that make humans so susceptible to the destructive “addiction” of socialism. This, in no way detracts from his critically important larger perception that humans, during deprived and  unrewarding conditions, and without an education that “inoculates” them against trading governmentally protected personal freedoms for more immediate governmentally conferred rewards and feelings of security. All of this in exchange for  delayed, often incrementally increasing population controls leading their enforced servitude to the State.  Then, socialism frequently devolves into communism, with its totalitarian control of citizens’ thoughts, speech work-assignments and other behaviors.
American Marxist Revolutionaries have now insured that this common socialist history remains hidden from our children and young adults. American governmental Marxists did this by infiltering and controlling our schools and universities, as well as our news and entertainment media, and more. From these powerful positions, they set about the task of blinding generations of America’s youth to the tragic realities of all-controlling great central governments everywhere.
A central focus of their propagandistic methods included teaching America’s children and young adults to vilify and disrespect their own society’s culture and history.  
Once this was achieved, all that remained to do was to consolidate and strengthen our increasingly Marxist government in deceitful ways and to maintain governmental power long enough to plunge America into a series of national disasters (economic, disease, uncontrolled immigration, intra-population conflicts, and the confusion of propagandistic dis-information, etc.,). As all of this greatly increased economic, social, and medical stress, fear, and anxiety among voting citizens: The Revolutionary American Socialism trap was set.
In Democracies, or Republics such as ours, younger disaffected citizens over a few generations become more likely to seek the reassuring security of increasing governmental “care and support”. When this happens, the critical tipping-point can be reached during scheduled elections at all levels of government. When such a tipping point is reached, sociopathic Marxist governments are very skilled at producing fraudulent election outcomes.
From my historical and psychological perspective, Fromm’s “bigger picture” is now what is happening to America.
From a purely psychological perspective, we shouldn’t expect anything different.
As infants and young chidren, if all went well, we were totally dependent upon the care and devotion of our loving parents. This dependency lasted for nearly 20 years, or more. As we moved through our developmental stages, we chafed at the benevolent controls that were imposed upon us for our own good; for our protection from delayed harmful behavioral consequences that we could not envision. If all went well, our devoted parents rewarded our conformity to these prosocial rules and they probably humanly punished our lack of conformity to them.
Later in our lives, when we broke these well taught rules, we were likely feel learned unpleasant feelings of  guilt and anxiety. These feeling may have been sufficient to motivate our return to  conformity. If our learning history was strong enough we may have felt proud of our respect and conformity to these taught rules. Or, we may have abandoned our conformity to our learned rules for life and then suffered natural unpleasant consequences such as the loss of social or material rewards. It is possible that physical pain could follow our lack of conformity to our learned prosocial and pro-health rules. Some of us had to learn important rule-governed lessons “hard way”.  Perhaps some of us never learned these lessons, but topic is for another chapter. 
The important point is that as infants, and young chidren our parents were “ALL-KNOWING” and “ALL-POWERFUL BENEOVLENT DICTATORS. They were our “MINI-GOVERNMENTS” and we depended upon them for life itself. In the beginning, they “knew everything” and we knew nothing. They could do “everything” and we could do little but eat, eliminate, cry or smile, and so-on. Of course we could learn an astonishing number of skills and abilities, but only if “OUR GOVERNORS” helped us to learn and cope with the challenges of life.
Our parents were Co-Presidents of a governmental organization called the family. Families differ in make-up, but if all goes well, families provided the mini-governmental context in which loving, protecting, teaching, and benevolent discipline and countless rewards occur.  Our extended families (grandparents Aunts and Uncles) added to our mini-governmental sense of love, belongingness and security.
A large number of psychological principles were naturally arranged by our loved ones in order to teach us the essential skills and abilities of life, and were naturally dependent upon upon their governance. As children we learned in times of frustration, fear, anxiety, and pain to turn to our loving parental governors to help us cope with such matters.
If all went well, as developing children, teens, and young adults we learned to be more independent.  But if our learned coping skills fail us, and we lost our expected rewards in life, or for whatever the reason, we become anxious, depressed, fearful, and hopeless man of our peers were prone to seek the hoped-for benevolent care of a larger institution that  reminiscently resembles our earlier developmental family institution: Our Local, State, or the Federal Government and their agencies.
To summarize:
At the root of our human tendency to Escape From Governmental Freedom, to increasing  governmental control, is our unique, in all the animal world, extended period of helplessness and dependency upon our “governing” families. If we were fortunate, unpleasant or punishing events there were minor in contrast to countless pleasant and rewarding principles of psychology that shaped our social and emotional development and motivated us to seek similar rewarding relationships as adults.
However, during times of great trouble; stress, fear, famine, plague, economic or material deprivation, war, or cultural collapse, etc., many citizens will seek the hoped-for rewards and security of family life in the form of dependency on  government care and support. Unfortunately, increasing government care and support rewards helplessness and laziness within populations and increasing governmental control of their lives soon follows.
