John L. Kachelman, Jr.: Whose Conspiracy Is It? 4.5 (2)

by John L. Kachelman, Jr.

I’m speaking to the Ruling Elite…YOU scornfully claim I wear a tinfoil hat and idle the time away in delusional dreaming of imagined political catastrophes. YOU scoff at my concerns and dismiss my patriotism with comic memes. YOU casually prance from day to day as if everyone and everything in this world is at your “beck and call.” YOU utter illegal and absurd mandates and heartedly condemn non-compliance but then you hold yourself aloof from the compliance you demand from others. YOU claim I am obsessed with conspiracies that are unfounded and serve as fodder for insurrectionist protests when in reality it is YOU fomenting the conspiracies. YOUR childish antics are deserving of the playground retaliatory quip: “I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks on YOU!” The true conspiratorial insurrectionist is YOU!

The most brutal political practice ever weaponized is the planting, nurturing and then oppression of “conspiracies.” Even though this word “conspiracy” has been publicized by today’s political Elite, it is not novel. From the Beginning of time conspiratorial thoughts have attacked the Rule of Law. In the Garden, the Devil suggested the Forbidden Tree was off-limits because God Almighty wanted to keep mankind different from Deity.

From the Beginning of time conspiracy has been used as a leverage to further the agenda of the Elite so they will gain more power and greater riches. This evil ambition is not confined to any geographical borders, language, ethnic race, or political inclination. Power is possessed and ambitious evil wants more and more; seeking gain through fear, intimidation and false accusations.

In order to frame the purpose of conspiracies we need to ask, “WHO benefits from accusations of conspiratorial theories?” This is a significant but overlooked query.

Conspiracy is an action of a group who strategize an unlawful, harmful, or evil plan. This is formulated in secret. Its intent is for harmful or evil purposes. It is an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act for a given result. It involves planning, coordination, information dissemination and an objective. The term is always used in the strongest negative connotation.

The success of the conspiracists depends upon a sliver of truth wrapped with lies and propagandized to manipulate and achieve the evil objective. The conspiracy is presented with the message that the ones exposing and punishing the conspiracy are acting for the “greater good.” “Who” would dare stand in the way of the “greater good.” Thus, the conspiracists define the “greater good” in a manner furthering their ambition.
A survey of civilization illustrates this evil action; furnished are myriads of examples. Revealed is the Rulers’ tyrannical oppression of the Ruled. Once the Rulers publish their delusional conspiracies, they are justified in punishing those guilty of the imaginary threats.

Perhaps the most recognized example comes from the evil of Fascist Germany (1930). It was through propagandized conspiracies that the German public accepted the mass murder and systematic killing of Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and disabled persons during the Holocaust. These groups were targeted by the Fascists and killed in crematoriums and concentration camps. It was the media publications that manipulated people’s thoughts to develop anti-Semitic, anti-gypsy, anti-homosexual and anti-disabled hysteria. Circulating the conspiratorial rumors, established prejudices and discriminatory practices and encouraged the escalation to an accepted state of violence.

A frightening summary of how political talking-heads used conspiracy to justify the State-sponsored police action is stated in an article titled “Has The World Become Nazi Germany?”
“As a child survivor of the Nazi reign of terror I learned indelible lessons about the nature of evil… Academic science, the military, industry, and clinical medicine were tightly interwoven as they are now. The Nazi system destroyed a social conscience in the name of public health…Nazi propaganda used fear of infectious epidemics to demonize Jews as spreaders of disease, as a menace to public health…Medical mandates today are a major step backward toward a fascist dictatorship and genocide…these undermine our dignity as well as our freedom…The stark lesson of the Holocaust is that whenever doctors join forces with government and deviate from their personal professional clinical commitment to do no harm to the individual, medicine can then be perverted from a healing humanitarian profession to a murderous apparatus…What sets the Holocaust apart from all other mass genocides is the pivotal role played by the medical establishment…Medical doctors and prestigious medical societies and institutions lent the veneer of legitimacy to infanticide, mass murder of civilians.” (Holocaust survivor and medical patients’ rights activist Vera Sharav)

The tyranny of the Rulers oppressing the Ruled by delusions of “conspiracies” is not limited to the past. Our current times are witnessing a similar manipulation. The evil Political Elite seek to numb the population’s awareness by claiming accusations of wrong doing are mere “conspiracies.” It is not uncommon for those questioning the Elite’s agenda to be rebuffed with, “Come on now! You are sounding like some of those crazy Conspiracists!”

Published in HUMAN EVENTS, June 5, 2021 is an excellent analysis by Jim Hanson titled AN INVENTED INSURRECTION: How the left is trying to criminalize conservatism. Hanson’s astute analysis was used a month later in another outstanding analysis by Michael Austin in the Western Journal. Austin’s report was titled: Investigative Report: Dems Are Using ‘Invented Insurrection’ to Create 2nd War on Terror Targeting Americans. Hanson’s conclusion aptly frames the diabolical objective of the Elite Rulers. The Rulers were seeking to tyrannize the subjected Ruled. Hanson states, “The only conspiracy here is by the left to deprive their political opponents of their Constitutional rights.”

The Ruling Elite are being pressed to declare more conspiracy theories because their façade of integrity is crumbling. More are becoming aware and are questioning the tyranny they have gullibly accepted. When the Rulers feel pressed, they strongly react. A greater tyranny, a greater propaganda, a refashioned mission strategy and a greater intolerance will emerge.

This development is currently observed. It is a reality—look at those wrongfully arrested, illegally imprisoned, unconstitutionally beaten, starved, deprived in DC jails following the J6 protests against the State’s illegalities. The Rulers are threatened. Their retaliation is harsh and inhumane designed to “teach a lesson” to others who might think of non-compliance.

On January 13, 2022 Jim Hoft published a shocking article titled: BREAKING: OathKeepers Founder and President Stewart Rhodes Arrested — Charged with Seditious Conspiracy a Year Following Jan. 6 Protests. The desperation of the Ruling Elite is evident. Their media propaganda has miserably failed to deceive the population. The imagined charges of “conspiracy” are intended to stoke fear and compliance. When the Rulers fail to see this response, it acts with a greater hostility. Their power and wealth are slipping; their evil ambition’s appetite is not satisfied. The Rulers are beside themselves not understanding why the Ruled refuse to cower and comply.

If you want to see the extent to which the Rulers are desperately trying to maintain their tyranny over the Ruled, just look at the “conspiracies” they have announced. These are conspiracies are concocted by the delusional mind to justify the tyrannical despotism of Washington POLS and entrenched Bureaucrats. These are desperate to feed their selfish ambitious appetite. They are desperate to cling to power and wealth that are extorted from the citizens of our Republic! Here are just few and you can add to the list:

• Parents are terrorizing school boards
• Concerned citizens are domestic terrorists
• Those questioning the 11/3/20 election are subversives
• Those questioning the CDC/NIH/FDA mandates are insurrectionists
• Those claiming COVID death rates are inflated are “unscientific”
• Those refusing the experimental jab are ignorant hillbillies

Be assured that much more will be written about the “conspiracies” fomented by the evil Rulers to maintain their control over the Ruled. The conspiracies ARE NOT the product of the concerned citizens BUT ARE the product of the evil Rulers seeking to discredit, disparage and decry the integrity of those pursuing the Truth. Look back at the opening paragraph—let the RULING POLS know this fact, YOU bear the blame! Do not excuse or elevate yourself to an aloofness that depreciates another person or group.

One final illustration fittingly portraying the current affairs in our nation’s Capital. Inside the Beltway all seem impervious to the reality of the citizens in the USA. These, inside the Beltway, have assumed an elitist position; they are aloof, insensitive and unconcerned.

Now listen to this…History records the tyranny of a Ruler over the Ruled. This woman was a hated Hag; an ugly old woman, vicious and malicious. She was ungodly and trained her son in evil. Her son was justly executed, and the mother usurped the throne making herself queen. She is forever known as a murderer, even killing her own children so her position would be secured. Inevitably the wheels of justice turned bringing her downfall. The nation returned to the Rule of Law and she was held accountable. When she was being removed and the Law was being restored, she “tore her clothes and cried out, Conspiracy! Conspiracy!” (2 Kings 11:14).

Such reveals a simple truth—those crying “Conspiracy” are the ones who need to be arrested, adjudicated, and punished. This truth is historically validated but scornfully ignored. Again, I ask, in order to frame the purpose of conspiracies we need to ask, “WHO benefits from accusations of conspiratorial theories?” The answer is the Ruling Tyranny benefits because it gives a delusional legitimacy to oppress and punish!

by John L. Kachelman, Jr.: January 6, 2021 and Lepa Radić—Memorials to Brutality 5 (1)

by John L. Kachelman, Jr.

When all facts are known, and they will inevitably be known, history will record the facts of January 6, 2021 as racist, political terrorism which traumatized millions, wrongfully incarcerated hundreds, and shredded the populace’s confidence in “liberty and justice for all.”

A number of articles have already published thoughts on this day and have used the term “infamy.” It is suitable. The term “infamy” is recalled in President Roosevelt’s “Day of infamy” speech to Congress. The word refers to that which marks an “extremely bad reputation, public reproach, or strong condemnation as the result of a shameful, criminal, or outrageous act; an infamous act or circumstance; loss of rights, incurred by conviction of an infamous offense.”

The treatment of the protesters in DC on January 6, 2021 definitely qualifies as “infamous.”
The response to the protesters marked the inevitable descent into despotic tyranny by a government that is insulated from reality and blindly ignorant to their sworn duty. Their position is to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution so our Republic will stand strong and liberty and justice for all is a hallmark. They failed…MISERABLY failed.

Their failure was prompted by a delusional racist, political terrorism. Their failure was coordinated by carefully planned evil machinations. Their failure was disguised with doublespeak claiming to defend the “Law” (but it was a “law” they themselves follow while ignoring the true Law of our land).
I choose to add to the infamy of this high-handed tyranny the term “brutal.” Look at history and note how this racist, political terrorism behavior is memorialized as “brutal.”

The brutality on February 8, 1943

Lepa Radić, was a 17-year-old Bosnian executed during World War II. In her last minutes of life, her tormenters offered to spare her life in exchange for the names of her accomplices, she refused. She had been captured in February 1943 while organizing the rescue of some 150 women and children seeking refuge from the Axis. She attempted to protect her charges by firing at the attacking Nazi SS forces with a barrage of her remaining ammunition.

After they caught her, the Germans sentenced Radić to death by hanging. The Germans kept her in isolation and tortured her in an attempt to extract information over the course of three days leading up to her execution. She refused to divulge any information about her comrades both then and in the moments just before her execution.

On February 8, 1943, Lepa Radić was brought to the gallows in full view of the public. Moments before her hanging, Radić was offered a pardon if she revealed the names of her Partisan comrades. She passionately responded, “I am not a traitor of my people. Those whom you are asking about will reveal themselves when they have succeeded in wiping out all you evildoers, to the last man.”

The brutality on January 6, 2021

Do not think the brutality of tyranny is isolated in Fascist Germany. This evil treatment was not removed when Nuremburg’s sentences were announced.

The brutality of racist, political terrorism is on full display with the events following the January 6, 2021 protest in Washington, DC. But this time, it was not an invading enemy but it was Americans brutalizing Americans!

After being arrested without warrants and imprisoned without charges the American citizens were subjected to brutality in numerous forms. And this is in the capitol of their own nation!

One article cited the torture in these words: Jan. 6 Inmates Endure Worse Abuse Than Gitmo — Brutally Beaten, Stripped, Hogtied, Humiliated By Guards, One Prisoner Blinded In One Eye.

The following is a script from an interview discussing the brutal racist, political terrorism wrought by the ruling Elite in Washington, DC. NEWSMAX with Greg Kelly & Joseph McBride: McBride told Kelly, “What I can say about the Jan. 6 protesters who remain incarcerated or detained at this point, is that their constitutional rights and human rights are being violated by the Department of Justice and the Federal Government at this very moment.”

He went on to explain, “The law is clear that no type of punishment is appropriate for a detainee. Despite that numerous detainees are being held in solitary confinement for long periods of time. They’re being denied medical care. They’re taking beatings. They’re being denied sleep. They’re being psychologically, emotionally, and physically tortured on a regular basis.”

Greg Kelly asked, “Who’s beating them up?” McBride told Kelly, “I am alleging that the guards are beating them up. The staff are beating prisoners on a regular basis and have been doing so for a long time. This is no exaggeration.”

The ability of the progressives and ruling POLS to look blindly at the brutality of those imprisoned enrages me. These are the ones who cursed and condemned what they called the brutality of Gitmo for known terrorists.

Listen to their own words:

From World Socialist Web Site an article deploring the inhumane treatment of known terrorists in Gitmo and damning the US government for permitting it to continue remarked on Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) as he attempted to calm the progressive’s criticism for Gitmo.

“Durbin’s tearful apology, Democrats make cowardly retreat on Guantánamo torture” 24 June 2005. Durbin then commented: “If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime—Pol Pot or others—that had no concern for human beings.”

Highlight the DEM’s observation about brutality to those imprisoned: “you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime—Pol Pot or others—that had no concern for human beings.”

What Sen. Durbin damns in treatment for those crying “Death to America” is applauded in the treatment of those who cry “America is great!”

A Brutal Pretension

The term “pretentious” aptly describes the characters supporting this brutal racist, political terrorism. It refers to those whose actions are “characterized by assumption of dignity or importance, especially when exaggerated or undeserved; making an exaggerated outward show; full of pretense; having no factual basis; false.” Such well describes those who have used this tyranny to further consolidate their evil ambitions.
The circle jerk back character in the WH Pressroom promises January 6, 2022 as an entire day where Joe Biden will attack President Trump for January 6, 2021 “Insurrection”! Really? If there is an insurrection why have NO CHARGES of such been made against those illegally imprisoned for one-year?

On June 26, 2021 Joe Biden “reaffirm[ed] the United States’ unequivocal ban on torture and opposition to all forms of inhumane treatment”; acknowledged that torture “is prohibited universally, and violates U.S. and international law”; and “pledge[d] the full efforts of the United States to eradicate torture in all its forms.”  Really? This was made a full six-months after those arrested were brutalized and denied their Constitutional rights.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said “the president bears responsibility” for the attacks. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. said: “They tried to disrupt our democracy. They failed.” Schumer and Pelosi said Trump incited an “insurrection” against the country. Really? These are the Capitol Leaders who ignore the deplorable treatment and brutality of Americans who are the focus of brutal racist, political terrorism!

Look at the reality of January 6, 2021…The DEMS offer tearful apologies and consternation over the treatment of those who seek to destroy our Republic and shout “Death to America.” However, these same DEMS applaud and enable the torturous and illegal imprisonment of Americans who were marching FOR the Constitution and viability of our Republic!

Where are all the progressive protesters crying about human rights violations? Why is this being permitted to happen in America? This is completely unacceptable yet it is embraced by both political parties. It is propagandized by a special committee in the House whose intent is to validate brutal racist, political terrorism.
American citizens have been hunted down, murdered and arrested by the corrupt FBI/CIA for the crime of being present on January 6 and entering into the Capitol building as they followed the invitations of the Capitol Police. American citizens are imprisoned, tortured and abused. And the Rulers in Washington, DC have mouths watering with anticipation that the kangaroo courts and committees will sanction this brutality.
Jim Hoft is to be commended for setting up an informative page on this travesty. It is aptly called AMERICAN GULAG. From this site distressing facts, anecdotes, and insight into the brutal racist, political terrorism of January 6, 2021 can be found. Over 700 were arrested BUT 0 charged with insurrection! And we are told to believe that insurrection was planned and implemented—but one-year later NO charges of such have been made!

Will Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, McCarthy, and McConnell admit…

• There was NO insurrection?
• There is inhumane torture, cajoled confessions, and despicable racism?
• There were FBI/CIA plants that committed illegal acts?
• The video that has been denied will be made available?
• That those illegally imprisoned are victims of political Fascism?
• With tear-filled emotions that those imprisoned for J6 are Patriots?
• These arrested are not insurrectionists and traitors?
• Those being held are subjected to the inhumanity of the “Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime—Pol Pot or others—that had no concern for human beings.”
Let Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, McCarthy, and McConnell listen carefully to this closing statement and know that history will write the events associated with January 6, 2021 as certainly as it did with the Fascist in February 8, 1943.

January 6, 2021 will be a historic monument to the fact that racist, political terrorism and its brutality will never break the heroic spirit.

The Fascists in 1943 are chronicled as brutally pursuing tyranny…the Fascists of 2021 will be chronicled in the same manner. Both were imprisoned, tortured, and suffered inhumanly at the hands of the State’s Guards. Those accused and arrested on January 6, 2021, and slandered by the politicians as insurrectionists will say: “I am not a traitor of my people.” The actual traitors will be exposed and punished! Justice will be served.
Let the Rulers know there will be Retribution. “Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience He stands waiting, with exactness grinds He all.” ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

John Kachelman, Jr.: When the dream is delusional—the silent emergence of fascism in the USA 4 (1)

by John Kachelman, Jr.

Vigilance has warned about the present danger but the alarms were shrugged off by the delusional thought “well THAT cannot happen in the USA!” Blatant events beginning with Obama’s administration shocked and caused consternation but all was forgotten under President Trump’s administration. Then November 3, 2020 came and ushered in the reality that the dream has become a nightmare.

Six months into the Biden administration Americans have witnessed the overt attacks upon our civility, utter contempt for our historical heritage, cursing for our once-envied culture, and ruin for our thriving economy. The bulwark of our Republic’s independence has been breached as the U.S. Constitution’s Rule of Law has refused to be upheld by the Courts. Those who uphold fidelity to the Constitution are imprisoned while those advocating anarchy are applauded.

The disintegration of our culture, history and body politic is not new in civilization’s records. I have noted specific similarities of historical precedent in the godless French Revolution and the inhumane fanaticism of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (which we call the Nazis) that provide obvious education on the intent and the terminal fate of such movements. However, history’s instructions are ignored and the steady march toward devolution continues.

Illustrating how far down the path of disintegration of our nation’s once-proud statue in the world’s view is a shocking event announce on 6 July 2021 by the Los Angels Times. “The U.S. Capitol Police on Tuesday announced that the agency was opening regional field offices in California and Florida to investigate threats to members of Congress in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.”

Jim Hoft publicized this overt seizure of State’s Rights by the Federal Government in an article in The Gateway Pundit in the evening of July 6. The announcement of the flagrant overreach of Nancy Pelosi and her army of brown shirts came only two days after our nation had celebrated the Independence Day of our nation where tyranny was rejected and liberty and freedom was gained.

According to announcements, Pelosi will assign the Capitol Police to various “hot spots” throughout our nation for the purpose of confronting those deemed “radical extremists.” Informed readers know this is a term identifying those who believe the Constitution and not the extremists residing in Washington, DC is the Rule of Law.

While this view of Pelosi (and evidently ALL in Congress, the White House and the SCOTUS since there is a deafening silence from their quarters regarding this action) is not unexpected, it is another historical illustration of how freedom is seized and tyranny becomes the Rule of Law.

The historical precedent is obvious. Although Adolph Hitler is synonymous with pure evil, he is not alone in civilization’s “Hall of Shame.” All despots share a behavioral pattern. This recent announcement of the deployment of Pelosi’s Capitol Police to eradicate radical extremists throughout the nation is clear behavior of despotic rule and ruin.

Listen carefully to history from the 1920s…Hitler’s rise to evil tyranny was carefully orchestrated. Beginning in small gatherings it amassed fanatical support through a cunning propaganda machine. Truth was twisted. Lies were polished. Minds were manipulated. But even with these accomplishments not all would march in goose step with the fascists. Hitler needed a force to quell any opposition.

Heinrich Himmler is forever etched in the chronicles of human civilization as the personification of evil. It was to Himmler that Hitler turned to secure silence to the radical extremists threatening Hitler’s delusional dreams. Himmler started in 1925 with a band of 300 “bodyguards” for Hitler. This group was established and named the “Schutzstaffel.” We know it simply as the “SS.” These were the black uniformed, skull insignia enforcers of Hitler’s evil. This group grew to 50,000 when Hitler took control of Germany. Eventually this group numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Initially this group was the Furor’s personal bodyguards but evil knows no boundaries and soon this group was assigned duties to control and exterminate all deemed “unsuitable.” The SS became the police for the nation of Germany and all of its conquered territories. This is the group tasked with the “Final Solution.” This is the group responsible for the institutional killing and genocide of more than 20 million people during the Holocaust, including approximately 5.2 million to 6 million Jews and 10.5 million Slavs.

This is the group involved in the daily operation of Hitler’s brutalizing and murdering individuals in territories occupied by the Nazis. This is the face of the terrorist in the death camps.

America…this is where YOU are on 6 July 2021! A national announcement has been made stating that there will be a national police force tasked with controlling and eradication of “radical extremists.” The Constitutional rights assigned to the individual States are nullified. The Federal Government has decided that the State knows better than the individual what “freedom” will include.

This is history’s lesson. The lesson could not be clearer. This is a mark of fascism that leads to tyranny that enslaves and not liberates.

by John L. Kachelman, Jr.: Identity Politics—the New Fascism controlling the Loony Left and destroying the USA 4 (1)

by John L. Kachelman, Jr.

Identity Politics in the 1930s pushed a racist ideology saying that Jews were “parasitic vermin” worthy only of eradication. Identity Politics 2021 pushes a racist ideology stating white people need to be eradicated.”

Wherever you are on the spectrum of fact or fantasy in our culture, some answer to the perplexity is deserved.

A bird’s-eye survey of our current situation reveals a struggle, decades in time, between two incompatible positions—there is neither compromise nor appeasement that will reconcile these two positions. These two positions are either Freedom or Fascism. The conflict ends only when one is terminated.

The current cultural conflict focuses on transforming the foundation of the American culture. Our nation’s greatness grew from the fact that diverse nationalities came together and formed a union in America’s “melting pot.” As each person came into America he was assimilated into the core fabric of our national culture—there was a shared language, dress, moral ethos, work ethic, and dreams. This “melting pot” led to America’s greatness because it focused on the priorities of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by the individual. These objectives were couched by a firm belief in the rule and reign of the Almighty God in the citizenry and the fact that maintaining these objectives was the responsibility of each individual citizen.

The success of the American system became the envy of the world (and it is still the envy of the world as myriads march to enter our nation however, in February I was in Eastern Europe and was asked, “Things in America have changed in the last years and it is not as it once was. Right?”). The formula for our nation’s success was impracticable in Europe, Central America, Asia, or any other location. These were steeped in a governing that denied the individual and thus prevented the key factor for success found only in the New World. These governments saw the success of America but refused to reform and provide the environment necessary. This refusal ignited resentment against the culture that made the USA so unique.

There were a number of historical forces attacking the national foundations that made the USA the envy of the world. Among the many historical attacks, I believe three are most significant.

Atheism arose and challenged the Judeo-Christian foundation. Communism arose challenging the American work ethic. Socialism arose challenging the individual’s responsibility for success or failure. With each of these attacks the foundation that gave the USA strength and success was compromised. Slowly the governing system, judicial system, educational system, religious structures, and civil fabric were transformed. The “melting pot” ceased assimilating and the national unity was fractured. Lost were the uniting factors of language, dress, morality and religious core that had highlighted America’s “melting pot” union.

Worldwide conflicts marked the century’s change from the 1800s into the 1900s. This paradigm shift created havoc as the settled certainties of civilization were attacked. The anarchy spawned by the godless French Revolution, metastasized worldwide. The turn of the century was marked by anarchists in religion (repudiation of God), governments (repudiation of governing systems) and education (repudiation of reason and exaltation of “expressionism”).

Unlike other nations in chaos during this time, the USA was initially insulated from a major invasion of these anarchist threats. But history shows that these malignancies eventually invaded and corrupted our Republic. A number of sociological phenomena combined and changed the basic core values that had made America a great nation.

Eventually a spirit of anarchy ignited and attacked the judicial, educational, and religious systems and the moral fabric was compromised. The “counter-culture revolution” was aptly named—it stood for the opposite of every law, value and ethnos that had made America great. Entertainment united to shock America’s modesty and shame her morality. The boast of “freedom” was corrupted to advocate actions, beliefs and morality that were shameful.

The elevation of bigoted education and false science to an idolatrous level spurred on the compromises in morality and religion. Consequently our national conscience was desensitized.

The counter-culture of the 1960s graduated into academia. Scorn became the customary tone for morality and religion while “personal freedom” was presented as the only true virtue. The message was that any restriction on personal freedom was contrary to the American way (the sexual revolution and drug use became the vanguards pushing this new freedom). The visibility of this frightening fruit of a warped freedom is today shouted by the anarchistic mobs, “Whose streets? Our streets!” The Rule of Law has been replaced by personal anarchy! Academia became the final voice of authority in this revolution. And, the educators were unquestioned even though their positions hid behind invalid accusations.

In 2018 David Horowitz accurately chronicled the devastation of academia upon the American culture:

“Since the seventies, the radical movement had been establishing a political base in the universities, purging conservative faculty and texts, and transforming scholarly disciplines into political training programs. These leftist indoctrination programs are referred to as ‘oppression studies,’ ‘social justice studies,’ ‘feminist studies,’ ‘whiteness studies,’ and the like.” (Dark Agenda, 124)

This malignant educational process erased the singular concept that made America great—it vanquished the fact that individuals are personally responsible. Personal responsibility was replaced by teaching that values regarding good and bad are determined only by group identity! Basically, this says that one’s entire person (beliefs; values; self-worth; significance; etc) is determined ONLY by the group with which he is identified. IF one is identified with a particular group THEN that one is valued only by what that group identifies! The concept of individual merit is cursed. You cease to be an individual. If you are identified as a part of a group then it does not matter if you agree with the group or not.

The irony of this madness is seen in how the leftist’s “identity politics” boomerangs! A number of articles have reported on how identity of “whiteness” precludes support and identifying with “blackness.” Perhaps the most well know of these is the former Spokane, Washington NAACP President Rachel Dolezal who admitted in 2015 that she is white, despite publicly claiming to be black for years. “I acknowledge that I was biologically born white to white parents, but I identify as black.” Regardless of the personal choice, the personal choice is denied by the Leftist “identity politics.” Sorry Rachel Dolezal but your individuality to “identify as black” is rejected by your identity politics! You are assigned to a group and regardless if your personal actions and attitudes, you must accept this assignment!

When personal choice and individual responsibility are replaced by group/identity, the very foundation upon which America was made great is destroyed!

When one removes the individual and focuses only on the group, evil quickly follows. Such is illustrated by the fascists in Hitler’s Germany. Individually the Jewish person ceased to exist. All that existed was a “group” labeled by a racist ideology saying that Jews were “parasitic vermin” worthy only of eradication. The “Identity Politic” of fascist Germany was pure evil!

It is evil to assign carte blanc damnation to an entire group based upon the identity of that group! But the Leftist academia and politicians have energetically embraced such evil and have been permitted to practice an arrogant racism in the USA! They have been applauded for such actions and EVEN rewarded by corporate businesses that reward anyone in a certain group and ignore other groups.

A recent article in the Daily Wire illustrates the deplorable depth to which “identity politics” has taken academia. Chrissy Clark observes, “A Virginia public school district’s equity lead sent out a graphic claiming that Christians are privileged and women, children, and people over the age of 50 experience ‘oppression.’ Lottie Spurlock, the equity director for Loudoun County Public School District — one of the most affluent school districts in the nation — passed out a graphic that used immutable characteristics to divide people into two groups — oppressed and privileged.”

According to Clark’s article here are the two groups into which modern America is to be placed:

These are identified as the “privileged”:

  • Men
  • White People
  • Christians
  • Heterosexual
  • 20-50 Year Olds
  • U.S. Born
  • Owning/Middle- or High-Income Background
  • Currently Able-Bodied
  • College Educated or Parents College Educated
  • Not Adopted or Foster Child
  • English as a Primary Language
  • “Average” or “Thin” (referencing weight)
  • Lighter Complexioned People of the Same Race

These are identified as the “oppressed”:

  • Women
  • Children
  • People of Color
  • Non-Christians
  • Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Queer
  • Gender Non-conforming
  • 50 Years and Older
  • Immigrant
  • Working Class/Lower Income Background
  • Disabled
  • Not College Educated or Parents Not College Educated
  • Single Parent or Raised by a Single Parent
  • Adopted or Foster Child
  • English as a Second Language
  • “Overweight”
  • Darker Complexioned People of the Same Race

We are where we are today because the individual has been replaced with group identity. The individual’s personal responsibility has been replaced with group victimization (this victimization rationalizes and excuses incivility). The concepts of individual life, liberty, and happiness have been replaced with group autonomy. The individual’s duty to think and reason has been replaced by group think.

In Columbia, Missouri, on October 30, 2008, Barack Obama stated, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Lottie Spurlock’s equity directive for the Loudoun County Public School would certainly applaud Obama’s words.

The reality of the Leftist “Identity Politics” is illustrated by a troubling article describing how a candidate for student government at Stanford University posted racist threats, including “white people need to be eradicated,” then apparently deleted the account when caught. This is the same identity politic that the Fascists in Hitler’s Germany used to torture and murder millions who were not “useful” for their evil ways.

Historically proven is the fact that eventually the favored “group” is exposed and is held accountable for its evil upon the other “groups” it sought to “eradicate.” “Justice” is blind and holds scales that are eventually balanced.

The United States of America has been fundamentally transformed because the Fascists of the Left have removed personal responsibility and cast all into group identity. Today certain “groups” are applauded as they burn and destroy BUT other “groups” are arrested, harassed as they gather in large numbers and voice concerns. The “peaceable” group utilizes arson, intimidation, calls for violence and stir a manipulative fear. The “domestic terrorist” group utilizes mass gatherings without conflict, no intimidation, and no violence.

Things today have definitely been “fundamentally transformed.” And, it does not take a crystal ball to see that no matter how bad things are now, they will devolve to an even greater decadency unless justice is meted and evil is punished.

Bill Lockwood: Why Should Christians be Interested in Opposing Socialism? 0 (0)

by Bill Lockwood

Modern America has been trained to compartmentalize their lives by placing “religion” and worshipping in the church-house or privacy of the home as separate and distinct from “politics.” “Politics” is thought to be what one does when going to the ballot box. Never should these two ideas meet. So is the conventional wisdom.

It is further supposed that ideas such as socialism, communism, statism, collectivism or their variants are merely “political theories” that have no bearing on religious teaching, or more than that—that biblical teaching does not touch such ideas.

This is all very shallow and without any serious thought into what the biblical view of the world includes. Let’s begin with the Bible. Christian truth is one organism. It has a unity and coherence the parts of which cannot be arbitrarily removed without doing violence to the whole. In the words of the great Christian writer James Orr,

“He who with his whole heart believes in Jesus as the Son of God is thereby committed to much else besides. He is committed to a view of God, to a view of man, to a view of sin, to a view of Redemption, to a view of the purpose of God in creation and history, found only in Christianity. This forms a Weltanschauung, or “Christian view of the world” which stands in marked contrast with theories wrought out from purely philosophical or scientific viewpoint.” 1

This is why there is deep antagonism between Bible believers and scientific theories of the origin of the world and mankind. The schism cannot be papered over by simply saying, “I believe in God and the general theory of evolution.” The naturalistic view of the world begins with this sign: “NO MIRACLES ALLOWED.” The Christian view of the world begins with this: “In the beginning GOD CREATED the heavens and the earth.” There is no middle ground.

Socialism

The same is true regarding socialism. Oscar Jaszi was a noted Hungarian social scientist, historian, and politician of the 19th century. Jaszi found himself in the middle of socialist revolutions in Europe during the formative years of communism/socialism, labor parties, and liberal democratic movements. Later, teaching at Oberlin College in Ohio, he authored works published by the University of Chicago Press. He wrote the entry under Socialism in 1934 for the Encyclopedia of Social Sciences, a multi-volume scholarly work. In his lengthy article on “Socialism” for the Encyclopedia, Jaszi summarizes six points which are characteristic of all collectivist movements. They are as follows:

  1. A condemnation of the existing political and social order as unjust
  2. An advocacy of a new order consistent with moral values
  3. A belief that this ideal is realizable
  4. A conviction that the immorality of the established order is traceable not to a fixed world order or to the unchanging nature of man but to corrupt institutions
  5. A program of action leading to the ideal through fundamental remolding of human nature or of institutions or both
  6. A revolutionary will to carry out this program.

Jaszi then issues this warning. “The fact can scarcely be overemphasized that no true socialist is satisfied with merely economic reforms but advocates also a distinct educational, ethical, and aesthetic policy.”

At the heart of all socialistic ideas, including communism, Nazism, statism, and fascism, is an atheistic view of man. That is, mankind is solely determined by physical, social, and/or economic factors. This is directly at variance with the biblical view of man, which teaches that the problem with mankind is sin, a rebellion against God (Rom. 3:10-12).

To teach that God Exists sets one at war with atheism which says there is no God. To teach that there is One God (Deut. 6:4) is to oppose polytheism which says there are many gods. It is also to oppose the pagan worldview which believes that deity is somehow embodied in the earth. And to teach that God created man in his own image—a freewill being whose problem is SIN, is to be at variance with the socialistic creed that preaches the problems of mankind arise from the environment and that by reforming social institutions problems will be solved.

It is simple. Belief in the biblical view of God opposes atheism and the biblical view of man opposes socialism. Further, since politics is defined as the principles by which society should be governed, should not Christians be engaged in combatting socialistic ideas that engraft themselves into a culture—even if they are in the political arena?

Collectivism, Individualism & Freedom 0 (0)

Collectivism, Individualism & Freedom “…persons are considered to be only cogs in a collectivist wheel.

by Bill Lockwood

ObamaCare specifically, but collectivist socialism generally, is not only unconstitutional in America, but immoral. This does not mean that we have not or do not practice socialism via the redistribution of wealth. America has become a leading fascist or socialist nation. The Affordable Care Act is a perfect illustration. But it is at root level, immoral, and goes a long way in explaining why our streets are exploding with violence.

Think about a few concepts, then an illustration.

Consider first, individualism. As a political philosophy, America is to be a nation in which individuals, not the collective, is emphasized. Translated, this means that it is “individual freedom” which is stressed in our Constitution and other founding documents. As a concept it is rooted squarely in biblical teaching whereby “individuals” are held accountable before God—not families or societies.

For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God, for it is written, ‘As I live, says the Lord, to me, every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then each one of us shall give account of himself to God” (Rom. 14:11,12).

Connected with this is the worth of each individual. We are crafted by God “in his image” (Gen. 1:27). “I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).

The biblical doctrine of individualism is the dominant feature of western civilization precisely because our society is founded upon God-given rights, per the Declaration of Independence. This means that the interests of individuals and the rights of persons are held paramount. This is where morality lies.

Turn attention to its opposite: collectivism.

Collectivism is any species of political and economic system in which the government, or people, as a group, own land, factories, and other means of production. It flows from philosophy where de-emphasis is upon individuals and “classes” or “groups” of society are dominant. Various species of this include socialism, communism, and fascism.

The key element here, however, is that the moral worth of the individual is counted as very little and persons are considered to be only cogs in a collectivist wheel. The “greater good” of society rules. In practice this means that whatever group or powerful politician needs to sustain his office-holding is favored. Collectivism or statism is a moral stance that removes worth of the individual. This is how America has become not only immoral but that immorality is actually encoded into our system.

I illustrate it with the story of one of my friends, named Carl.

The Story of Carl

Carl is a great Christian friend. He is self-employed as a housing contractor, builder, welder, and pretty much a doer-of-everything kind of guy. Hard working by nature, his integrity is outstanding, laboring many over-hours to accomplish his tasks.

Carl comes from the old-time school, as thousands of other Texans, where one’s word is your bond. If he tells you he will do a certain project; it will be done—under budget. It is not that Carl is slower than corporate executives that he has a blue-collar job, but because he loves to work with his hands in the great outdoors. He needs no overseer because he is conscientious about his work.

Frugal by nature, my friend saves his money. When traveling, for example, he sleeps on the side of the road in a tent to avoid paying hotel costs. A self-made man that could survive if lost on the prairie. When his truck breaks down, he fixes it; when his roof needs replacing, he does the work; when the fields need mowing, he does them.

He now has a wife and daughter. Providing for his family in a God-ordered manner is his joy. Part of this provision involves health insurance—which cost him—prior to the arrival of Barack Obama on the scene, about $300 per month. This included the entire family. Enter ObamaCare. Carl’s insurance premiums sky-rocketed to over $1000 per month.

We must take from” the workers, said Obama, and distribute to those who are not as “fortunate” as Carl. Carl was forced to drop his own insurance in order to purchase it for his wife and child. So now, he himself is without.

He continues to work just as hard as ever, laboring as a private contractor for different people. But no health insurance for himself—it is too expensive. Where is Carl’s money going?

One can witness it in a thousand neighborhoods. Free health care clinics; what used to be called Section 8 housing; free education to many children who could not care less if they were there; free medical care including costs of having children for unwed mothers; babysitting, and medical care for the children. Then, to sweeten the pot, there is the Earned Income Credit for teenagers and others who bounce around through society on a continual marijuana high and who wait for that big EIC check at the first of the year so they might purchase another car, or spend it at the Casino.

The real workers of America, such as Carl, are not the Forgotten Men of America, they are The Exploited Men. This system cannot continue; nor should it.

Civil War Coming to America? 0 (0)

Civil War Coming to America?“The complicity of the left to destroy America knows no limits.”

by Bill Lockwood

Communists have threatened to bring Civil War to America for decades. Now it seems they are on the brink of doing so. The black community, after enjoying a black president, are more hate-filled than ever. They are stirred and agitated. Everything offends them. On another front, student activists rage in the streets. Civil unrest and open threats against the President of the United States are the order of the day. Civility be hanged.

A state Democratic Senator from Missouri, Maria Chappell-Nadal posted on Facebook “I hope Trump is assassinated!” in response to what she believed was an improper response by President Trump to violence in Charlottesville, VA. She refuses to resign.

Communist Van Jones, who by orientation belongs to a world-view which designs violent revolution for America and who is therefore a center-piece for CNN, dramatized tears that President Trump did not follow the liberal script and blame only “right-wingers” for what occurred in Charlottesville. Agitation is the name of the game.

Ever the pink supporters, Hollywood actors also stoked the fires among the ignorant and simple-minded. Rob Reiner, for example, tweeted: “Let’s be clear. The hatred we’re seeing in Virginia lies at the feet of Donald Trump. Stoked during the campaign his silence condones this.” Reiner is just one of many communist sympathizers in Hollywood.

Aided and abetted by the Mainstream Media, this is all pressure from above.

Pressure from below is also building. As reported by Andrew West (Constitution.com, Aug. 22) the boiler plates are being turned up as the Antifa movement “prepares for an all out assault on America” in November.

 Alt-left agitators are planning to stage mass riots in major cities on November 4 during which they hope to instigate a ‘civil war’ that will lead to the ‘regime change’ of the Trump administration.

Demonstrations are planned for cities across the country, including New York City, Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.”

A glance at the Revolutionary Communist (revcom.us) website show the featured diatribe by Andy Zee in which revolutionary action is advocated for Antifa sympathizers.

What Exactly is Antifa?

Antifa is short for “anti-fascist.” It is an anti-government, anti-capitalist, anarchist movement which aligns with communism. Their protests purposefully foment violence. According to researcher Jerome Corsi, its roots trace back to the Weimar Republic in Germany and owes its birth to the Communist Party’s opposition to the Nazi fascist movement of post-World War I Germany.

Corsi points the reader to Jonah Goldberg’s 2008 excellent book, Liberal Fascism. Goldberg explains that communists and fascists are closely related. They are “historical competitors for the same constituents.” The Antifa movement is a return to the communist paramilitary riot tactics that “developed to fight the Brownshirts of the Weimar Republic.”

Noteworthy it is that Antifa has been declared a terrorist organization by the New Jersey Department of Homeland Security (June 12, 2017). The New Jersey authorities point out that Antifa is a subset of the anarchist movement “with the goal of rubbing raw social and class tensions in order to de-legitimize the U.S. Constitution.” Its goal is the establishment of a communist state in America.

Damning evidence it is that the mainstream media and the entire establishment, including the likes of Condoleeza Rice, focused entirely on the so-called “right” of the Charlottesville, VA violence—totally and purposefully ignoring the Antifa movement that was involved.

Revcom.us

In keeping with the communist pedigree of Antifa, the Revcom.us website writer Andy Zee recommends books authored by the chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, Bob Avakian. Avakian’s books are   The Truth About Right-Wing Conspiracy… And Why Clinton and the Democrats Are No Answer and The Coming Civil War.

Avakian is further lionized by West as the “architect of the new synthesis of communism.” In keeping with this, revcom.us calls agitators to “Take to the streets and Public Squares” on November 4! They promise this will continue “day after day and night after night” until “our DEMAND is met.”

What is their demand? Because of such things as “immigrants living in terror;” “Muslims and refugees demonized and banned and cast out;” “women … denied the basic right to control their own reproduction;” “LGBTQ people stigmatized, ostracized and denied civil rights recently won;” and “the whole planet in peril from a regime that denies global warming and shreds all environmental protections”—a “qualitative change” in America is necessary. Says revcom.us: “This nightmare must end: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”

In part, stirred by these same type of communist threats, the mayor of Phoenix, AZ, Greg Stanton, a Democrat, is pleading for Trump to “stay away” from the capital of Arizona.

The complicity of the left to destroy America knows no limits. One cannot even begin to imagine the Mayor of any town in the United States pleading with Barack Obama to “stay away” from their city during or after his presidency due to opposition from the right. Every journalist and public official would have publicly gagged on television at such an idea while calling for the head of any person who so recommended. “We must have free speech!”

All of this causes one to realize why it was the Democratic Party which so hated the now defunct House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) which operated between 1938 to 1975. It continually exposed public leaders who held “anti-American” views. Its demise allowed communism to grow unimpeded with no exposure until it has verily taken over the entire Left in America, which not only calls for street revolution, but now tweets for open assassination of our president.

Is it Time for Divorce?- “How Deep is the Divide?”

by Bill Lockwood

With all of the political rancor boiling out of the Left against President Donald Trump, perhaps it is time to ask the question if the time has come for American states to consider an amicable divorce? Political separation. The chasm that divides right from left in our nation is wider than can be bridged by mere bi-partisanship. America is in the midst of a brewing civil war. The community organizers and Deep State devotees continue to foment rebellion behind the scenes while their street goose-steppers violently rampage with impunity.

What is the cause of all of this? What is the real issue? It is not about, as shallow thinkers suggest, Trump’s tweets. It is instead the same issue that has been festering beneath the surface for over a century and is just now coming to an ugly head. Will we have a limited government whereby the individual can enjoy his or her God-given liberties?; or, will we have total government control which dispenses or retracts these “freedoms” as central-planners see fit?

This is the only explanation for the intensified vicious hatred flung at President Trump. He is doing exactly what he said he would do — rolling back the gargantuan total state that has been created after the socialist will. But the heart of the left will always be about imposing their ungodly agendas on others by totalitarian-style edicts of the New World Order.

Witness some of these edicts. They range from population-control schemes; mandating the activity of each person on earth as is clearly enunciated by Agenda 21 UN goals; over-riding national sovereignty by international law; the complete destruction of capitalism; militant sexual LGBT worldviews; absolute federal and international control of our children’s education; the forced funding of the welfare state; complete domination of unconstitutionally-held land; complete control of our money supply and wealth by which slavery is promoted in the form of debt; and a thousand other similar well-established practices.

Therefore, perhaps the time has come to consider an amicable divorce. States that wish total government, go your own way. Those that eschew despotism, go another. Irreconcilable differences.

How Deep is the Divide?

To consider how deeply we are divided, ponder James Madison’s statement pertaining to government power. “The powers delegated [by the people] by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce… The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives and liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State.”

Those enumerated powers of which Madison spoke equal about twenty specifics (Art. 1, Sec. 8). So important was this basic concept of a limited government that the Founders added the 10th Amendment which was to serve as a lock on the the federal government.

Thomas Jefferson even wrote, “I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.” (1791)

We are now on that “boundless sea” and the horizon does not look promising. We have completely lost the Constitution as the people writhe beneath a centralized state. In common with every breed of despotism, communism, Marxism, socialism, Nazism, or fascism—all of which are rooted in atheism—individual rights and liberties are almost non-existent in our nation. This is exactly what the left wants. Therefore, whether one reads the U.N. Earth Charter or the Manifestos of the Humanists or the Democratic Party platform, they all cry for more government control and less freedom of the individual.

Deeper still is the principle that was observed by Alexis de Tocqueville in the 1830’s. He noted that that which united Americans, transcending political parties and religious differences, was a fundamental moral consensus in the heart of the people. This was so impressive to the French diplomat. Sadly, consensus does not any longer exist between the opposite sides of our divide which advocate two very different world views.

With a complete lack moral consensus today and cultural leaders of western civilization who love to have it so, it seems insufficient to even call for state conventions for the purpose of adding amendments to the constitution or even demanding the federal government retreat. Statist policies of government officials will continue unfettered and anarchy will escalate.

So, instead of middle America being forced to tolerate the near-Satanic-style assaults from the left, making it impossible for our elected president to govern, perhaps it is time for those addicted to government management of their lives to write their own constitution and go their own way.

Bill Lockwood: Socialism is Slavery 0 (0)

SOCIALISM IS SLAVERY- “It is the mainspring of socialism as well. Not only do these superior beings need to recognize the equality of all men, having been created by God, but to count others better than themselves (Philippians 2:1-4).”

by Bill Lockwood

Socialism begins with the basic tenet that some people are superior to others and should therefore manage the activities of the lesser. All men are created equal but some of us are more equal than others. It is a dictatorship of the elite who are required by the very nature of things to govern the lives of others.

Oscar Jaszi, the famed Hungarian socialist, explained socialism as: (1) A condemnation of the existing political and social order; (2) Advocacy of a new order; (3) A belief that this ideal is realizable; (4) A conviction that the immorality of the established order is traceable not to a fixed world order or to the unchanging nature of man but to corrupt institutions; (5) A program of action leading to the ideal through a fundamental remolding of human nature or of institutions or both; and (6) A revolutionary will to carry out this program.

Max Eastman, in his 1962 book Reflections on the Failure of Socialism, mused about the years he wasted in the doctrine of Socialism. Referring to socialism as a “Marxian religion” he emphasized that the real issue is “the usurpation of power” and that the “tyrant has no honest instinct for the liberties of man.”

The common denominator of all socialist theories, be they fascism, communism, Nazism, environmental paganism, economic theories championed by humanism—or whatever, is the following: “… that society can be made more free and equal, and incidentally more orderly and prosperous, by a state apparatus which takes charge of the economy, and runs it according to a plan.” Bottom Line: some people consider themselves to be naturally endowed to govern the rest of us.

Slavery

This is why Socialism is in reality another system of slavery. Socialism is a theory of government which requires the strong arm of the state to re-distribute private resources according to its plan. As an institution slavery begins with exactly the same assumption, both in the ancient and modern world. Some people are “more equal” than others.

Thomas Edwards, in his classic commentary on the biblical book of 1 Corinthians (p. 182), explained slavery on these terms while discussing the apostles’ remarks in chapter 7:11-24: “Slavery was an institution that sprang from other fundamental ideas—namely, the superiority of men over women; the religious pre-eminence of Jew over Gentile; the Greek consciousness of creative political genius; so that in discussing the question of slavery, the apostle [Paul] not only arbitrates between master and slave, but addresses himself to the antagonisms most deeply seated in the religious, political, and social condition of the time.”

It is THIS that Christianity alters—the view of mankind.  “All men are created equal” is a Christian axiom. The fact that biblical principles reconstruct one’s view of humankind from the ground up also explains why Christianity did never create firebrands of people to march in the streets demanding the overthrow of the social order, but instead operates over a period of time as leaven on a society.

As Edwards put it, “The distinction between master and slave ceases at the door of the church. But Christianity abolishes slavery by assimilating and sanctifying the relation of master and servant in its inmost nature. While it refuses to wield the sword and destroy civil institutions by violence, it so transforms their ruling ideas that those institutions become what they never were before.”

For instance, Christ bestows on the most degraded and despised slave who is a believer, spiritual endowments that cannot fail to inspire him with a consciousness of freedom. He ceases to be a slave by the very fact of knowing that in the sight of God he is free, and his service ceases to be a bondage because it is now a willing obedience to Christ.

See the slow but constant growing influence of these principles in the early ages of the church. Christians began “manumitting slaves” at Easter; then later on the Lord’s Day; at last they were freed on a daily basis. In the law Constantine forbade the owner of slaves to break up slave families; later came the sentiment that led rich men to consider the education and manumission of slaves an act of piety; finally, one witnesses the election of slaves to offices of the church, such as Calixtus, once an indentured servant, who became a bishop of Rome in 3d century.

Warped View of Mankind

Both slavery and socialism begin with a warped view of mankind, namely, that some people are more sufficient to manage the lives and activities of others. In reality, socialism is another face of slavery. This also demonstrates why the environmentalists continue to tend towards the socialistic Democratic Party.

In the following quotes, centered chiefly around the doctrines of environmentalism, one finds recommendations for massive population control, eugenics, and euthanasia. All of these require an elitist disposition. These geniuses are clearly positioning themselves to be the caretakers of ‘we the people.’

David Graber, once a biologist with the National Park Service, declared that “a particular species of a free-flowing river is of ‘more value’ to me than another human body, or a billion of them. Until such time as Homo Sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along.”

The late Jacques Cousteau was quoted in the UNESCO Courier in November 1991 and again in November 1994 as saying, “The United Nation’s goal is to reduce population selectively by encouraging abortion, forced sterilization, and control of human reproduction, and regards two-thirds of the human population as excess baggage, with 350,000 people to be eliminated per day.” It’s terrible to have to say this. World population must be stabilized and to do that we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. This is so horrible to contemplate that we shouldn’t even say it. ” But say it he did.

Barbara Marx Hubbard, former Democratic vice-presidential candidate, prominent futurist and occult leader, in her The Book of Co-Creation, (self-published, 1980, Part III, p. p. 59), says, “The present vast overpopulation, now far beyond the world carrying capacity, cannot be answered by future reductions in the birth rate due to contraception, sterilization and abortion, but must be met in the present by the reduction of numbers presently existing. This must be done by whatever means necessary.”

Barack Obama’s top science advisor, John P. Holdren, opined that “A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men. “The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.”

Quotations like these are endless. They demonstrate that the very mindset which produces slavery throughout history and around the world– the supposed superiority that too many nurture in their own minds when they compare themselves to others–is alive and prevalent today. It is the mainspring of socialism as well. Not only do these superior beings need to recognize the equality of all men, having been created by God, but to count others better than themselves (Philippians 2:1-4).
