To all Americans whose minds are not trapped within narrow, shadowy, corridors of psychic cages as is the sad, tragic case for most Americans, it's obvious that our Constitutional Republic is rapidly breaking apart on rocks of fiat rule, lying, confusion, ignorance, apathy, unconstitutional 'special rights,' group rights, deviance and lawlessness. Thus it has become commonplace for psychologically manipulated, morally degraded and dumbed-down Americans to call our Constitutional Republic a "democracy" (something the Founders deplored), support the murder of the unborn, cheer-lead for sodomy, hand their children over to be groomed by pedophiles in so-called sex education classes, admit that they do not know what Western Biblical-based civilization is and submit to a dehumanized status as evolved products of evolution.
The Iron Curtain
"Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for awhile...but sooner or later they were bound to get you." George Orwell, 1984
The metaphor "iron curtain" has been used to describe twentieth century totalitarian pagan states such as the Soviet Union. Why iron curtain? Answer: through terror, force, constant fear, treachery, brain-altering drugs, dehumanization via indoctrination with Darwinism, and psychological manipulation and trauma men's minds were narrowly confined within psychic cages.
Whether identified as brainwashing, mind-control, or psycho-politics, thought-control is part of a program of psycho political terrorism utilized by Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and the Communists after they seized control of Orthodox Christian Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast cultural scale every vestige of belief in the Biblical God, creation ex nihilo, the traditional family, morality, private property, the West's traditional linear view of history, and other signs of "the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie." By way of various sadistically brutal forms of behavior modification, torture, psychotropic drug experimentation, re-education, and psychological terror tactics, Russians were terrorized into submission while Communists systematically stole their property, confiscated and perverted their children, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests, and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:
"About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the country's mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed" Clergymen were crucified on churches' holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled,"said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. "I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter," Yakovlev said. "It was total cruelty."

Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Soviet Union describes the "iron curtain" as a tyranny where,
"...there were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately." Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other mind-control tactics, everyone became double thinkers. To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers: "everybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion." But it is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth. These people, he noted, "live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many don't even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves." But when a "fear society disappears or becomes weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel," Sharansky commented, and "It's such a big relief."
To determine if a society is fear-based, as America is quickly becoming, Sharansky applies what he defines as the "town square test." In this test if you,
"can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society" even though that society may not be just. However, if you are "punished for your views you live in a fear society,"said Sharansky. "In such societies there are always three types of population: True believers, who accept the ideology...dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts or disagreements about the official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly." In conclusion, Sharansky comments that the level "of dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)
There are two misconceptions held by most Americans. The first is that communism ceased to be a threat when the Soviet Union imploded. The second is that the New Left of the Sixties collapsed and disappeared as well.
Because the New Left lacked cohesion it fell apart as a political movement. However, its revolutionaries reorganized themselves into a multitude of single issue groups. Thus we now have for example, radical feminists, black extremists, anti-war ‘peace' activists, animal rights groups, radical environmentalists, and ‘gay' rights groups. All of these groups pursue their piece of the radical agenda through a complex network of organizations such as the Gay Straight Lesbian Educators Network (GSLEN), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), People for the American Way, United for Peace and Justice, Planned Parenthood, Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), Code Pink for Peace, open border advocates and liberal 'Christian' groups. In back of these groups are deep-pocket funders: http://discoverthenetworks.org/
Both communism and the New Left are alive and thriving here in America. They favor code words: tolerance, social justice, economic justice, peace, reproductive rights, choice, sex education and safe sex, safe schools, inclusion, diversity, 'gay' rights, sustainability, global warming/cooling/change, and sensitivity.
Though America's communist Left (Progressive liberals) publicly describes itself as scientific, evolutionary, forward-thinking, and enlightened, in reality said ex-red diaper baby David Horowitz, Leftists are,
"...religious fanatics who regard their opponents as sinners and miscreants and agents of civil darkness...when they engage an opponent it is rarely to examine and refute his argument but rather to destroy the bearer of the argument and remove him from the plan of battle." (The Surreal World of the Progressive Left, David Horowitz, FrontPageMagazine.com, 1/25/2008)
Measured by Sharanskys' town-square test we can see that America is quickly descending into a fear-based society. As her freedom-producing Christian-based worldview fades it is simultaneously replaced by an evolutionary cosmogony and spiritually pagan progressive totalitarianism. The three types of population described by Sharansky also come into focus. Progressive Liberals and their legion of 'liberalized' disciples are the true believers. True believers are rabid zealots, brazen liars, and rebels against all authority. They freely destroy, transgress, scoff, demean, blaspheme, demonize, and otherwise psychologically and physically terrorize the large body of fearful double thinkers within and without the whole body of the Christian Church. Around the outside edge are the dissidents: truth-warriors who dare speak truth to lies and fight back against and expose forces of darkness.
More than fifty years ago, Conservative poet and journalist Anthony Harrigan foresaw the rise of this generations' destructive true believers. Observing that a 'process of decay' was being fostered by a modernist progressive orthodoxy fueled by immorality, Harrigan presciently noted that:
"Modernists are determined to force acceptance of pornography as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion...Though the life of the country is basically decent, Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class, having led to destruction the humane elements in our civilization, is conducting us to ruin." For what cause? To raise up a revolutionary army of "liberal-bred" barbarians "motivated by a destructive impulse" and unchecked by "traditional values and restraints." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement of America, George H. Nash, p. 40)
Communism, Socialism and Progressive Fanaticism
As Fyodor Dostoevsky astutely observed, Communist, Socialist and/or Progressive religious fanaticism is at bottom a reprisal of Nimrod's rebellion---the creature in rebellion against the Creator, His creation, Moral Law, immutable truths, and moral absolutes:
Our war is against the Christian God and the world created by Him, declared Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto. In his poem, "The Pale Maiden" he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:
"Thus heaven I've forfeited; I know it full well; My soul, once true to God; Is chosen for hell." (Marx & Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 22)
"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority....Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds." (Mikhail Bakunin, comrade of Marx, ibid, p. 27)
"We do not fight against believers (or) even clergymen....We fight against God to snatch believers from Him." (Vetchernaia Moskva, a Communist newspaper, ibid, p.77)
Most Americans no longer know what Western Biblical-based civilization is, and worse, actively fight against the worldview that nourishes them. This has two overriding causes: the deliberate and malicious "dumbing-down" of Americas' education establishment by progressive 'educators' (conditioners) issuing in the sad, tragic capture of the American mind. The mind can be freed, but the work required is hard, lengthy, and challenging. The road to Truth and liberty begins with the Word of God, then tracks through the following books:
