Spirit of Christmas and Secular Humanism: Not!

December 24, 2021

This article is just in time for Christmas. Wonderful!

There is an increasing backlash against Secular Humanist’s attempted stigmatization of all sayings and symbols that reflect America’s religious traditions.

For example suddenly, many more of us are saying “Merry Christmas!” once again. And with this, comes an interesting sense of “liberation”.

This is an odd feeling for people to have; given that our liberty has always been in our own hands!

The appearance of these (currently waning) “social prohibitions” on happy or reverent talk about this nation’s Merry Christmas’s, Thanksgivings, Easters and other religion-based celebrations might be hard to understand. The Following article is sure to enlighten many readers.

Knowledge is power….so please read-on and behave accordingly!

This article is by one of my favorite authors.

Secular Humanism is a Religion

“The purpose of a man is like the purpose of a pollywog – to wiggle along as far as he can without dying.” ~ Clarence Darrow, Secular Humanist

Secular Humanism is a religion. The American Humanist Association has a religious tax exemption status approved by the federal government. Nine times, the Humanist Manifesto calls Secular Humanism a religion.

The Humanist magazine featured an article in 1983 that boasted: “The battle for mankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom. The classroom must and will become the arena of conflict between the old and the new, the rotting corpse of Christianity and the new faith of Humanism.”

Paul Kutz, a signatory of Humanist Manifesto II, wrote in its preface: “Humanism is a philosophical, religious, and moral point of view.” Kutz calls for the establishment of secular humanist churches.

Secular Humanism is the Religion of our Public Schools

The day God was kicked out of our government schools by the Supreme Court in the 1960s is the day the government schools should have been closed down and replaced by private education. We the People are supposed to be running this country, not nine unelected men in black robes.

For fifty years, Christians have been forced to fund the destruction of their society due to the indoctrination of our children into the secular humanist religion. Advocates for Secular Humanism have been quite clear and explicit about using government schools to promote their faith and undermine Christian beliefs and values. Secular humanists should fund their own schools.

Oh, it has been a neat trick, so give the Devil his due. The sinister ideas of Darwin, Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud are taught to our children unopposed by the teachings of Jesus, John, Paul, and Luke. In other words, the almighty state’s authority forbids a worldview with God in it, but a satanic worldview is authorized.

Suppose our federal government must fund education. In that case, it should give parents $10,000 for each child to spend on their local secular humanist government school, or a Christian school, micro school, home school, or any other mode of education the parents prefer. School Choice.

A Cosmic Battle Between Truth and Lies

The motto of Secular Humanism is “Good without God.” The primary identifying characteristic is its disbelief in God and disdain of any worldview with God in it. So, even though secular humanists claim their views are the opposite of religion, they are devoutly religious.

Scientific materialism is the cornerstone of Secular Humanism. Calling it ‘science’ and not the dreaded ‘religion,’ it has become the religion of our government schools. The so-called ‘separation of church and state’ has been diabolically used to brainwash our children into the religion of Secular Humanism by calling it science.

Secular Humanism indoctrinates our children into four big lies that undergird the rest of its religion: 1) The progress of humankind is all because of science. Christianity has worked against it all along. 2) Science has proven religious beliefs are false. 3) Educated people believe in science, not in the Christian faith. 4) Only science presents the whole of reality as it is.

The secular humanists approach the study of the Cosmos in a manner that purposefully and systematically excludes the divine. Not because this approach is natural but because they IMPOSE it on the Cosmos, refusing to consider anything but a godless universe.

That is not as ‘new’ as its disciples would have you believe. Epicurus promoted the idea that the world’s study should have as its aim to ‘liberate’ the human race from belief in God, immortal souls, and the afterlife—2300 years ago. And a couple of hundred years later, Lucretius promulgated the idea that the universe was the result of pure chance without guidance or purpose.

This is a cosmic battle between truth and lies. The existence of God and the Truth of the Bible are what’s under attack. Secular Humanism has no answer to the questions, “What is evil?” “Why is their order instead of chaos?” “Why is there something instead of nothing?” “Where did the Universe come from?” “How was it created?” “What was there before the Creation?”

“Only Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life,” wrote Francis Schaeffer.

The Clash of Moral Views Underlies our Culture Wars

Every worldview necessarily entails a conception of morality. The secular humanist religion makes Adam indistinguishable from an animal, stripped of anything that would make him distinctly human. Therefore it follows that the purpose of a man’s life can mean no more than the pursuit of pleasure and avoidance of pain; hedonism undisturbed by any desire or fear beyond self-gratification, with sexual gratification the highest aim. It requires a denial that our sexual organs are designed for any purpose above making us feel good. In this view, the fact that children are the result of sexual intercourse is a horrible burden, not a blessing.

We have a clash of moral views that underlie our culture wars. Since human beings are nothing more than a random conglomeration of atoms in the secular humanist religion, there is no basis for any morality. It follows that no sexual act can be intrinsically wrong—which is a strong attraction of this religion. Every pleasure can only be good; no one can be wrong about what feels good to them, and no one may make moral judgments about what makes someone else feel good. If it feels good, do it.

‘Humanist’ has become a word for those who have abandoned belief in God. Some refer to such people as ‘secularists.’ They tend to gravitate to education, entertainment, media, and government careers. That is how they have ascended to positions of authority in these fields, by which culture is formed and transmitted. However, having abandoned God, their true spirituality and morality are skewed, making their influence anti-God. We cannot provide a sound foundation for morals and behavior when everyone’s guess as to what is right or wrong is as good as anyone else’s. People gradually believe that they have the freedom to engage in any behavior they choose. In effect, they make themselves gods.

Real Science vs. False Science

B. Alan Wallace defines real science as “a discipline of inquiry entailing rigorous observation and experimentation. Its theories characteristically make predictions that can be put to the empirical test, in which they may turn out to be wrong.”

False science cloaks philosophy or ideology in scientific authority to support beliefs using biased interpretations of evidence that you cannot test. In other words, in textbooks, classrooms, scientific journals, and television, a godless view of the Cosmos is presented as the scientific view, which it is not.

The heartless core of this religion is that nothing but physical forces exist. Therefore, there is no God, especially no God who intervenes in the world, making prayer worthless and our minds and souls nothing but brain activity.

But science has no instruments or methods to detect the non-physical world. And saying that human beings have no souls or minds contradicts how we experience life. To teach the young that our consciousness, beliefs, desires, and intentions are all an illusion is not based on scientific facts but a demonic worldview.

The ‘principal architect’ of the field known as ‘social science’ is Emile Durkheim. He wrote that scientific thought would eventually take the place of religious belief entirely because it is “only a perfect form of religious thought.”

Many people equate their newfound atheism to a religious conversion, declaring, “Science is a religion and its philosophers are the priests of nature.”

Albert Einstein said: “In this materialistic age of ours, the serious scientific workers are the only profoundly religious people.” What is the essence of this religion? Science provides the only actual knowledge.

Secular Humanism Depends on the Theory of Evolution

Nothing is Real

According to Secular Humanism, Christianity, capitalism, and social conservatism are the enemies of progress. This ideology includes the belief that courts, bureaucracies, and schools should be used to accomplish goals that would never be approved by We the People.

Taking the secular humanist worldview out to its logical conclusion, nothing but matter is real. If it makes the shape of a dog, cat, or human being, that means nothing. The whole is less than the sum of its parts because only the components, the atoms, are real.

That is opposed to the way humans naturally interpret reality. A house is a real thing that existed first in the architect’s mind. The builder decided in advance what material was to be used to create it—the material follows form. In the secular humanist view, things only appear to be designed.

Secular humanists once taught that atoms were eternal, but now we know that is not true. Therefore, nature cannot be its own cause since if particles are not immortal, they could not have always existed. Physical reality exists and must have come into existence—must have been created—at some time. In this material universe that we temporarily inhabit, nothing cannot cause something. A cause other than nature must have created nature. Isaac Newton grasped that atoms alone could not produce an orderly universe without divine aid from a Grand Designer.

The Objective of Secular Humanism is to Eliminate Moral Boundaries

The objective of Secular Humanism is to eliminate the moral boundaries that God created. Morality is, in fact, the ultimate conflict between God and Satan.

If this plane’s sensual pleasures increase, the belief in and worries about the hereafter will decrease. To dissolve the assumption that you have an immortal soul would help remove belief in Godly morality. To convince your fellow man that the universe is nothing but materials would help diminish faith in God. The concept is to redefine what is real and what is not real. That method is not based on scientific truths but theories of men—the priests of Secular Humanism.

Naturally, if you buy into the secular humanist worldview—that all is but an illusion (eerily similar to Buddhism in that regard)—politics becomes your means of salvation. Since the Cosmos is purely the result of chance and is entirely amoral, what is fought for is the maximization of your rights to pleasure and the minimization of any barriers to your gratification. Sexual desire is easily aroused and more easily satisfied without the impediments of love, marriage, family, society, or any moral code. With good and evil out of the way, we can dispense with the very concept of vices and virtues.

Secular Humanism requires enormous faith that Evolution occurred. No experiment can demonstrate that it is more than a nightmare. Darwin knew that every view of morality entails a picture of the Cosmos to support it. Only a secular humanist worldview can think nothing of the slaughter of hundreds of millions of innocent human beings—we build abattoirs for animals, don’t we?

Only such a religion as that can make a hero out of Alfred Kinsey and Mr. X., his satanic subject. Kinsey believed that adult-child sex was natural—why would it not be if we were nothing but random chemicals? Kinsey also thought it was childlike to oppose bestiality: “To many persons, it will seem axiomatic that two mating animals should be individuals of the same species. Such beliefs are immature.”

There are no moral standards in a universe defined by chance. Ethical principles, therefore, are nothing more than individual preferences. Remember that Hitler, Stalin, and Chairman Mao never thought killing tens of millions of people was WRONG. As the militant atheist Richard Dawkins said, “We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous—indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.”

The Christian faith teaches us that God outlines right and wrong. We are free moral agents who personally choose to do one or the other. Secular Humanism dominates public discussion and our public school dogmas. Its philosophy is all about societal sin—not personal sin. That enables the most immoral and irresponsible among us to assuage their guilty consciences by supporting the politically correct public stances regarding society’s crimes. Virtue signaling.

The Supreme Court Imposed Secular Humanism on our Children

Secular humanists infested the Supreme Court. In the 1960s, for the first time in American history, they would cast God, the Bible, and prayer out of our public schools. That was a sharp blow against the traditional values that had formed the bedrock of America.

As a result, we suffer from an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases, fractured families, and millions of children with no idea who their daddy is.

The people behind the deconstruction of the American Way of Life are known by many names. They may be called atheists, progressives, secular humanists, or social liberals. Regardless, their goal is to replace belief in God with faith in Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, with the state as the new God, and people as mere animals. These progressives rightly calculated that the easiest way to overcome the will of the people in a democratic republic was through the nine unelected, appointed for life, Supreme Court Justices.

Scientism

Scientism is the view that science and science alone has anything meaningful to say about the human condition. It explicitly rejects belief in God and the supernatural; it rejects boundaries for science. Scientism—not science itself—leads some people to think that religion and science are at odds.

Modern science is, in fact, the child of the Christian faith. The Bible shows us that God created a rational world organized by natural laws that we can discover with the rational minds He gave us for this purpose. The universe, designed by God’s supreme intelligence, can be investigated by the cognitive abilities of human beings created in His image.

I am amazed at the number of politicians who claim to be Catholics but support abortion and homosexual behaviors. They claim to have erected a wall between their private beliefs and their public stances. No other group engaged in public policy does so. Why should only Christians do so?

Secular humanists certainly do not. Man is a cosmic accident; he has no purpose; his life has no meaning. This is the philosophy of the godless existentialist. It comes from a lethal combination of the four most influential atheists: Marx, Freud, Nietzsche, and Darwin.

The Problem with Secular Humanism
The Problem with Secular Humanism

Moral Relativism

Relativism forbids distinguishing between moral codes and fosters self-indulgence. Don’t be judgmental! Out go civility, manners, and morals—mere shackles on our freedom. Nothing is revered. Permissiveness, pleasure first, no criticism allowed, the praise of the crude, vulgar and sordid. It is not good to eliminate the boundary between what men can do and what they should do.

Secular Humanism accepts paganism, occultism, and various other New Age beliefs. It is under the influence of communism; its creed is all things anti-American. Secular Humanism is hostile to tradition, custom, orthodox religion, crèches, crosses, bible studies, any mention of God on school property. But witches are OK.

Secular humanists have changed the traditional school holidays from Christmas break to winter break, spring holiday in place of Easter, fall break in place of Thanksgiving.

Knowing that God is watching us creates self-control. Wisdom and virtue create human happiness in society. Vice and wickedness are destructive.

Secular Humanism is anthropocentric: Man is the center of the universe. This view is decidedly opposed to the wisdom of our Founding Fathers. Liberty was not for individuals to pursue every whim or instinct. Secular Humanism promises individual freedom without limits, most of all, freedom from the Christian faith’s moral strictures. We can see the results all around us: moral poverty, moral anarchy.

Progressives are moral relativists, which means they do not believe that concrete right and wrong exist or that anything substantive can be said about morality.

Secular Humanists: "Hail Satan!"
Secular Humanists: “Hail Satan!”

In Closing

Progressive atheists suffer under the delusion that social science can perfect human societies if only they could relieve people of their belief in God. They took control of our school systems and taught generations of children that they were random cosmic accidents raised from primordial goo—rather than the Image of God, as the Bible teaches. Ridding the public schools of God, the Bible, and prayer were the keystones that the progressive atheists needed to push their worldview on our children.

Over the past several decades, progressives would work through the courts to prohibit public expression of our constitutional right to Free Expression of Religion. Christmas carols and manger scenes began to disappear from the American landscape. Even “Merry Christmas” came under prohibition in many parts of American life. The ACLU has advanced most of all this evil.

Secular Humanism will continue to grow like cancer if we do not cut it out. It is a parasite so bent on destroying the Christian religion that it will destroy itself and its host nation and bring down the world if it must, in the effort.

As the darkness creeps over our land, haters of wisdom take command. They spread false values, filth, and decadence. At the same time, they assault America’s moral and religious foundations. It is insane to give government absolute power when it has no fundamental absolutes by which to govern.

“Sex In the City”: Democrats Fail America!

September 5, 2020

Sex In the City”: Democrats Fail America!

Look folks: Leftist, Marxist, etc., Democrat-run, cities simply do not work. In fact world history tells us Socialist, Marxist, Communist, Leftist cities and nations never work. At least, not for the people!

Why? The principles of psychology and economics (as well as other sciences) in such cultural designs are all-wrong! They may sound good and feel good in the beginning, but they always lead to a longer-term sociocultural disaster.

Therefore, the outcome is not only all-wrong, from a cultural evolutionary perspective, it is catastrophically suicidal. The most recent florid example of what I am trying to warn you about is Venezuela. Research this national human tragedy and see for your self.

Leftist-run cities both attract and produce populations that are destitute, totally dependent, and mentally ill. Worse yet, Leftist-run cities also attract and produce out-and-out criminals and their organized (or disorganized) criminal activities.

Increasingly over time, these behavior patterns appear to multiply exponentially through increasingly irresponsible sexual practices and negligent or abusive care of the resulting offspring. The higher than average birth rate within these populations then increases and perpetuates all of previously mentioned problems, and more!

This increasingly antisocial result produces an escalating proportion of grossly unprincipled dysfunctional and maladaptive behavior patterns within these political/social catchment areas.  Moreover, these Leftist cities attract politicians who strongly support these populations and recruit their increasing numbers from less-pandering cities and states in America.

The critical tipping point always comes when the “takers” out-number the “makers” (i.e., tax paying working citizens). Eventually the working class citizens flee to more viable cities, states, or nations. When this happens the corrupt commonly rich politicians tend to leave office, financially set for life.

This, in significant part, is how it works. But much more is involved and all of this embodies the many scientific principles that affect human behavior and social/cultural evolution. For short, I call all of this Behavioral Pathogenic Contagion, which drives Social Entropy (increasing proportions of a population that are maladaptive). All of this is another complex story. Just look these two terms up in my search box to learn more.

Great turmoil and suffering is coming to you and your offspring if you vote for the pathologically corrupt Marxist Democrat party in future elections.

Glimps this future below.

But note, if you read beyond the sex in the city expose’, the article attributes all of these problems to Covid-19, which the Democrats say is “all President Trump’s fault“. The truth is that the Democrats are fanning the flames of a Marxist revolution in America, starting in their cities, and using “Trumps Covid-19 disaster” as a cover-up for what is nothing less than their seditious, traitorous actions.

Why Capitalism ?! #3

Come-on Mom’s, Dad’s, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles; teach your children about the advantages of Capitalism!

You need to fight the fact that our generally leftist public educational system is not doing so. It is therefore failing to acculturate our children to the positive aspects of our society and culture; the greatest the world has ever seen.

Start early with your young loved ones. Provide them with honest standards of comparison with which to fight the Leftist-socialistic propaganda they will receive in their education and the pervasive popular media.

Discuss the well documented dismal, even horrific, record of socialism and radical liberalism vs. the proven stunning advantages of capitalism and conservatism with your young adult loved ones.

Whether they know it or not, they (and all of us) will soon be voting to save or destroy America.

Please see the following short Prager U. video to refresh your own thoughts on this matter. Then send it to everyone you know!

Socialism vs. Capitalism

June 6, 2018

Socialism vs. Capitalism

If a culture does not teach its basic principles: ethics, morals, economics and political philosophy to its children it will perish.

America’s educational system has increasingly failed to acculturate our children starting in primary schools and continuing through college since sometime in the 1950’s.  

As a result, a large proportion of our youth now favors socialism over capitalism as an economic system for America. 

Tragically, our youth knows little to nothing about the fact that socialism tends to evolve in the direction of communism. Furthermore, socialism generally produces poorly motivated citizens, who are taxed to-the-max who become dependent upon governmental support, in this political system prone to great corruption and failure. 

The most recent example of the abject failure of socialism is Venezuela. 

Please see this video about the now unfolding failure of Venezuela and then read the short article below.

Here is a quote taken from the article below. It is essential for America’s voting adult population to understand how socialism is becoming increasingly attractive to America’s youthful voters. 

“As Dr. Thomas Sowell says”, ‘Socialism sounds great. It has always sounded great. And it will probably always continue to sound great. It is only when you go beyond rhetoric, and start looking at hard facts, that socialism turns out to be a big disappointment, if not a disaster.’

The Black Dilemma?

November 2, 2017

 

THE BLACK DILEMMA

A dear friend sent this article to me for my evaluation.

My research on the internet found the following:

_________________________________________

“While many online postings of the above-displayed article in June 2015 claimed that it had been recently published in Baltimore Sun, this article has actually been circulating on the Internet since at least September 2014, when it was published under the title “Ten Percent Is Not Enough” in the American Renaissance blog.”

“The American Renaissance posting was originally attributed to Anthony Bryan; but his name was stripped from versions shared via Internet forums, craigslist postings, and comments sections of several race-related articles. Several different authorial names have been attached to the piece, including “John S. Mosby” (a Confederate cavalry officer) and “Edmund Hughes,” but the article didn’t truly go viral until after the Baltimore Sun attribution was tacked on.”

__________________________________________

Further follow-up research found that the Baltimore Sun published a disclaimer indicating that it never published the article to follow. This can be confirmed by typing “Baltimore Sun, The Black Dilemma”.

Never-the-less, the following article partially conflates with the various socio-cultural realities that I have personally witnessed and what I have learned in my studies of America’s attempts to improve race relations and economic advancements for black citizens. 

Indeed, the back population has made very significant progress in past years. But, but these gains have recently stalled and I fear the progress is not yet sufficient avoid a future of great racial strife in america.

Please read the following article in black print.  I will add my personal thoughts in red print.

___________________________________________

The Black Dilemma

For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting experiment.  The subjects of the experiment:  black people and working-class whites. The hypothesis to be tested: Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?  The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization.  The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements.  Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors.  America has struggled with racial discord ever since.

I do not think it was unfair to release blacks into into whites, nor do I think freedom was unfair to blacks. Obviously, the conscription of blacks into slavery was not only unfair, it was a immoral abomination. However, slavery was a world-wide practice in those times and blacks were complicit in capturing and selling other blacks into slavery. The systemic blatant discrimination and hostility to blacks before and following the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 by whites was absolutely unfair.

The surprise for many is that the worst treatment, and greatest proportion of it, was institutionalized by the democrats.

I know it sounds outlandish, but it is the absolute truth. Please read the following short article right now, as my remarks to follow are predicated upon this easily available knowledge for those who will do their research.

https://townhall.com/columnists/victoriastroup/2016/11/05/how-fdrs-racism-gave-democrats-the-black-vote-n2241694

http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/did-lbj-say-ill-have-those-nggers-voting-democratic-200-years

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/445303/democrats-black-history-month-amnesia-democratic-party-oppresses-blacks

For a more historical and in-depth and expose’ of democratic abuse of America’s black population, it is essential to read Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “The Big Lie”.

Decade after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave up.  They insisted that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work, and concocted program after program to get the result they wanted.  They created the Freedmans Bureau, passed civil rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty, ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball.  Their new laws intruded into peoples lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable.  They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration.  They outlawed freedom of association.  Over the protests of parents, they put white children on buses and sent them to black schools and vice-versa.  They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless hand wringing to close the achievement gap. 

All of this is true. To the greatest extent it was the a growing and increasingly democratic government that imposed draconian and unconstitutional fascist social engineering programs under the guise of liberating the black population

The result was a great social disruption, clashing subcultures, massive appropriations for programs and entitlements run by an increasingly bloated leftist and incompetent government. 

The greatest purposeful achievement was to destroy the black family structure (as it has done to a great many white families). It further “re-enslaved” great numbers of voting, chronically dependent and economically disenfranchised blacks and poor whites to the increasingly radical liberal/progressive/fascist democratic party.

To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race.  They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded whites to Celebrate Diversity! and Say No to Racism.  Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.

This is true, but it was only part of the goals of the long-term game plan of the socialist/Marxist left in America. These goals were: Capture the poor minority’s vote, capture the news and entertainment media, capture education, capture the judicial system, weaken the family, weaken religion, grow the size of the government, increase taxes, gain control of the government and the budget, and increase the practice of socialism in America.

Implementing strong controls over what people think and are allowed to say and stamping-out religion and individualism in favor of communalism is the leftist’s goal, now largely accomplished.  The tool for cultural change has been fascism, as Mussolini first configured it leading-up to WWII. The American radical left was enamored of this form of government control and they still are: I.e.,  Private ownership of business largely controlled by the government and the enforced political philosophy; “The government and the people are one!” 

Some thought that what W.E.B. DuBois called the Talented Tenth would lead the way for black people.  A group of elite, educated blacks would knock down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable of. There is a Talented Tenth.  They are the black Americans who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists  But ten percent is not enough.  For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote social stability..  That is what is missing.

Well a large mass of black people has followed. They can be seen working in America’s universities, high schools and grade schools. They are working in law enforcement, social welfare efforts, medicine/health care, business, the judicial system, government, politics, the military, and in other jobs of all sorts.

This is plain to see! There have been great gains, but there have also been some set-backs, as the following data will show.

https://www.brookings.edu/articles/black-progress-how-far-weve-come-and-how-far-we-have-to-go/

Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them.  

OK, but this problem has not been a result of black “inability”. As proven in my first citations at the start of this blog, it is the result of radical/liberal democratic social engineering leading to fatherless families, poverty and governmental dependency among poor blacks and whites. American blacks have been disproportionately disadvantaged because they were disproportionately disadvantages from the start.

Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence.  And blacks never take responsibility for their failures.  Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

The author (whoever that might be) should have said “too many blacks never take responsibility”. A statement that could also be made about “too many whites”. 

 Across the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson, rioting and looting are just one racial incident away.

It is not blacks that have failed, but rather the system in these specific cities and states that have been, for generations, under the governmental control of radical liberal/ progressive politicians who have tried to implement socialistic mini-societies that predictably have failed,  just as thoroughgoing socialism eventually fails every where else in the world.

The white elite would tell us that this doesn’t mean the experiment has failed. We just have to try harder.  We need more money, more time, more understanding, more programs, and more opportunities.  But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. 

But, all of this sure has captured the poor black and poor white vote, as well as the leftist-leaning population in America! The result has been more political power for the radical left.

It will never be a matter of more programs or more money. It is a matter of the motivational and administrative structure of how the money, opportunity and rewards are provided within programs. It is a matter of prompting marketable skill acquisition, work/financial opportunities and rewarding individuals who progress in achieving these goals.

Psychology’s great Law of Effect states “behavior is controlled by its consequences”. Change the consequences for a population’s actions and the populations behavior patterns will change!

Some argue its a problem of culture, as if culture creates peoples behavior instead of the other way around.

It would only take one good course in introductory sociology, anthropology, and psychology for most to realize that what we call culture is influenced by many things. Some of these things are: The physical environment, biological/health issues, war/peace, feast/famine, religion/lack of it, how citizens make their livings, science and technology, and of course the behavior of the individuals within the population.

Do not forget that cultures are also comprised of subcultures. Yes behavior creates culture, as the author so strongly states. But please never forget that there is an undeniable synergism among all components of a culture.  All components of culture interact with other components in complex feedback cycles capable of both accelerating and decelerating population behavior patterns. Cultural causes and effects are best  conceived as a great multi-layered lattis of multi-directional causal interactions both within and between these layers.

Make no mistake, culture shapes the perceptions, thoughts, beliefs, expectations and behaviors of those who live within it

Consider the infants born into the third generation families of those who have learned to live off governmental hand-outs and entitlements. That is, families that have learned it is most convenient (government rewards are most predicable and immediate)  and least effortful ( The “law” of least effort) to live the marginal life-style of a welfare recipient within the relatively deprived and dangerous environs of poverty.

These infants also tend to be born into environments that provide the quickest and easiest routs to increased status and prosperity through intimidation, violence and crime; environs in which education is viewed as useless.

From a statistical perspective, what would any psychologically knowledgeable individual predict for infants born into such conditions, other than the outcomes commented upon by the unknown author if this article sent to me?!

Would you really like to make the argument that culture does not shape such infants behavior?

Others blame white privilege.

But since 1965, when the elites opened Americas doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India people who are not white, not rich, and not connected have quietly succeeded.  While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black youths are committing half the country’s violent crime, which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.

The subcultures brought to America by the immigrant families specified contained a successful inoculation against the American subculture of governmental dependency and behavioral degeneration. It would be wise to more closely examine what these qualities are and to strive to incorporate (I will say reincorporate) them into our own culture.

The experiment has failed.  Not because of white culture, or white privilege, or white racism.  The fundamental problem is that American black culture has evolved into an un-fixable and crime ridden mess. 

I do not think it is “un-fixable” in the long run. As a psychologist often working with middle-class black families and seeing loving, hard-working, grandparents and mothers, and sadly a fewer number of black fathers, doing their best to raise good children, I see reason for hope.

But, I also see the influences upon these growing children who are affected by the entertainment media and peers who have embraced the immorality, irresponsibility and  barbarianism of “the hood” and the Godless leftist secular humanist philosophy. Many black families, along with what is left of their families are fighting with all of their might to raise a future wonderful black American population.

They do not want to change their culture or society, and expect others to tolerate their violence and amoral behavior.  They have become socially incompatible with other races by their own design, not because of the racism of others – but by their own hatred of non blacks. 

This is true of many in all races.

Our leaders don’t seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment.  They don’t understand that white people aren’t out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them.  They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity! The elites explain everything with racism, and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point.”—“You can’t legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.  What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.  The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government doesn’t first take from somebody else.  When half of the people get the idea that they don’t have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

Yes, Socialism in America is destroying America. Vote the radical liberal/socialist/progressives out of office. Vote for Constitutional conservatives or see more and more of what the this article is complaining about. 

Someone once said, “In a Democracy (America is really a Republic) the people get exactly what they deserve”.

It will be so.
