Big thinkers who were born into wealth and were exposed to the thrilling idea of humanist-rationalism postulated that they had hit upon the idea which would solve all the world’s ills. Over the decades it has had many names and today it is called Progressivism, Socialism, and Communism. All of these have never been proven to effectively meet the needs of a people, in fact, hundreds of millions have died as a consequence.
Because the heart of man has an inner longing for something better, the word utopia is used as a promise for something higher to strive for. After our founding, several communities were founded based upon the principal and all failed. Even the famous Pilgrims upon landing agreed that all property would be communal and that all would plant and harvest into the communal store. By the fall of 1622 there were few crops to harvest and few provisions in store. It seems that there were some who would not work as long as they were permitted to eat the fruit of the labor of others. Interestingly, like everything else the progressive-communists espouse, “utopia” is a lie. It is derived from the Greek word ουτοπία (ou-topas) which translated means, ου “no or not” and τοπία “place,” or “no place.” With over 400 years of practice they have become masters of obfuscation and deceit.
The inner longing within the heart of man is caused by God’s withdrawal as a consequence of sin and God proscribed a simple remedy: admit it and accept the atonement of his Son in your place (KJV John 3:16). Yet it is routinely refused and mocked. This refusal is a consequence of pride, and pride is only one of a number of human issues that result from the estrangement from God. Some of the others which reside within the human heart are greed, lust, envy, arrogance, deceit, and force.
When New England bankers, merchants, manufacturers, and lawyers found pilfering the United States Treasury difficult (because of the resistance of Southern statesmen within the legislature, and their easy money from decades of the slave trade evaporated) they needed another method. Destruction of the South and eliminating their legislative resistance was the answer. They fostered abolitionism as the vehicle to demonize an entire population in order to generate and justify abusive language toward their fellow citizens. Next they found and financed an obscure Midwestern, Christianity-mocking lawyer to back for the Presidency for the 1860 National election.
The 16th President and his backers succeeded in forcing the South to fire the first shot. As a result, this gave them the ability to call upon all patriotic Americans to defend the flag that concluded in the decades long dehumanization of the Southern population. These aggressors were men without virtue, who routinely lied for power and money.
The progeny of these people followed suit and ignored the admonitions of George Washington and proceeded to build an empire. They also completely ignored Thomas Jefferson in regards to banking, and James Madison in regards to National Debt. They lusted after all the power and wealth they could imagine.
1913 witnessed the sale of a National banking system to a group of international bankers by the United States Congress as well as the passing of the personal income tax (presumably to tax the rich). Years were spent in crafting the legislation and this gift of our sovereignty was quickly passed during Christmas vacation (while few were paying attention) because of a National banking crisis which had as its cause the International bankers themselves. Naturally, all involved were well compensated. The Morgans, Roosevelts, Mellons and Rockefellers. Among others were stockholders of this new private corporation. In order to disguise what had been done the new corporation was given the name “Federal Reserve System”; it is neither Federal and possesses no reserves. One may say that it’s simply a system to pilfer.
A sovereign Nation should possess the right to mint its own money and print its own currency at cost. Under the new system, the Federal Reserve only prints enough paper to cover debt obligations, and then it charges the United States (the tax payers) interest on the amount. Again, we witness how men without virtue exercised their base instincts of greed, lust, envy, arrogance, and force.
The Federal Reserve caused the Great Depression (admitted by those in the know) which created the perfect progressive climate to get their candidate elected in the 1932 election. Franklin Roosevelt’s promises that the government could fix everything witnessed him centralizing Federal authority on a massive scale while packing government administrations and the judiciary with like-minded progressives thru the course of 12 years.
Meanwhile, the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia created the Soviet Union, which resulted in the extermination of eighty million middle class people, and ushered in their “utopia.” Progressives in America cheered, but were unable to mount a similar movement, which drove them underground. The Russian Bolshevik’s invented the term “racist” to foment hate against those in opposition. They have used it successfully within all societies they infect. Then by the mid 1920’s, Marxist deep thinkers were confounded by the fact that the civilized world was not rushing to embrace their new form of government. Emboldened by their power over such a large nation they convened a gathering of academics from every discipline and tasked them on what must be done in order for their system to be introduced into other countries. Desiring to be associated with a University outside the Soviet Union they struck a deal with Frankfort University in Germany. The rise of Hitler in the early 1930’s caused them to move their base to New York City and Columbia University.
These intellectual Marxists (none of whom ever held a productive job or met a payroll) assembled all the suggestions from their cohorts and called it “Critical Theory.” It espouses that every pillar of society must be criticized until it crumbles, which they postulated was a necessary precondition to their introduction of utopia. Family, church, education, government, law enforcement, the Constitution, the law, the military, history, the arts, language, publishing, big business, entertainment, etc. was to be infiltrated and changed from within while their useful helpers picketed, rioted or otherwise created such distress that ignorant politicians would rush to make peace.
Our political leaders were very aware of this grand plan but since they operated under the Lincoln imposed “American System” there was too much campaign money, treasury plunder, and favors involved to stop it. They accepted the favors and donations, passed some favorable legislation, then kicked the can down the road. Men without virtue refuse responsibility while those who stand for nothing will fall for anything.
One must remember that the International Bankers and Progressive Communists share the same goal of a one world government without borders; this is why Progressives are so very well financed. On January 10, 1963 the top 45 goals of Communism were read into the Congressional Record. At this writing, most have been implemented. Here are a few:
- Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
- Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights
- Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
- Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
- Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
- Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
- Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
- Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”
- Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
- Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
- Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history.
- Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
- Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
- Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
You may know your history and have convictions, but if your boss says, “Remove that Confederate bumper sticker,” you will, in order to keep your job. Know that your boss is a useful idiot cowered by political correctness and the influence of other useful idiots above him. Our un-American adversaries have had free reign in this culture since 1865 and have increased their control exponentially since 1913. Today, I surmise 4 or more generations of children have matriculated high school and college indoctrination and are clueless to the nature of our cultural battle as they parrot what they’ve been instructed.
A first lady opined, “it takes a village to raise a child,” which is from the progressive playbook of family destruction. Her husband, the President, once remarked, “A check will substitute for a parents love and guidance.”These individuals were products of the Yankee education system and progressive political indoctrination and donations. A Virginia teenager kepta diary before the Civil War. Upon her return from a visit to New York City she wrote: “Where the whole energy of a people is applied to making money, the souls of men become dwarfed.”
We can thank our Yankee Progressive neighbors for developing a land where half the population of soul blinded individuals are incapable of distinguishing right from wrong while willingly pursuing their own destruction. Jesus said in John 8:44, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do…”, and that is the crux of our country’s problem. The answer of course is Jesus Christ who said in Matthew 19:26, “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” Pray for this country, lead Christ-like lives, and do your duty in all things.
