In her CNSnews article, "Manic Disdain For Our Fellow Man," Judi Brown observed: "There is no other word (than mania) that better defines manâ€™s desire to perfect man than the mania that drives so many to eliminate human imperfection by killing human beings. This craving has gripped the very core of those we have come to identify as the architects of the culture of death."
In his 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language, Noah Webster defines mania as "madness." By extension, maniacs are madmen raging with disordered intellects.
The architects of the culture of death belong to America's self-annointed Progressive "elite" class, the bipartisan autocracy who run America. Author Angelo M. Codevilla describes America's elites as "The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It," in his book of that name.
The elites are megalomaniacs whose faith is not in the transcendent God but in self, science, and evolution:
â€œAn absolute faith in science became the driving force behind the progressivesâ€¦. The most important idea that would influence the educators was that of evolutionâ€”the notion that man, through a process of natural selection, had evolved to his present state from a common animal ancestry. Evolution was as sharp a break with the Biblical view of creation as anyone could make, and it was quickly picked up by those anxious to disprove the validity of orthodox religion.â€ (Samuel Blumenfield in his classic text, â€œNEA: Trojan Horse in American Education:â€ 1984, p. 43)
When man rebels against and subsequently liberates himself from his transcendent Creator, his soul turns inward, a movement which induces as Pascal observed, the megalomania of which weâ€™ve seen so many manifestations in our time, from the murderous dictators such as Lenin, Stalin and Hitler to the dangerous lunacy of Obama's adviser Cass Sunstein who believes:
â€œthe state owns the rights to body parts of people who are dead or in certain hopeless conditions, and it can remove their organs without asking anyoneâ€™s permission.â€ (Latest Obama Controversy: Whoâ€™s IDâ€™d as organ donor,WND)
As Judi Brown makes clear, only madmen would believe that they possess the godlike powers to make other men perfect through scientific engineering.
This insane idea resulted in the liquidation of millions of men, women, and children during the twentieth century and has been the dream of â€œscientifically enlightenedâ€ progressives, socialists, communists and secular humanists since the 1920â€²s:
â€œThe hope issuing forth from the mind of totalitarian malcontents has always been that the new man can be manipulated as a zombie at the service of the state â€“ or any other secular religion that it finds necessary to createâ€¦ In reality, he is merely a miserable and lowly trained monkey, a venerable circus act devised for external consumption.â€ (Pedro Blas Gonzales, The New Man Revisited, orthodoxytoday.org )
Today's New American is a finely tuned twenty-first century automaton whose dignity, moral sense and capacity for right-thinking and self-evaluation have been destroyed by the madmen who have scientifically engineered New Men to be slaves of their own disordered passions, compulsions, and impulses. The New American believes he is a forward-looking free-thinker, but the reality is otherwise. The New American is a hollow entity, a Gollom who cannot think for himself and has no internal reservoir from which to draw any moral or spiritual strength, thus he views the legalization of sodomy and bestiality in the military as a good thing and he feels sorry for Sandusky rather than for Sandusky's victims. The New Man believes that money grows on trees and people who adhere to morality, norms and standards are tyrants.
There are five things we must understand about America's Progressive bipartisan autocrats if we are to make sense of the tsunami of madness forcefully sweeping over America:
First, they are malignant narcissists who worship themselves as gods . As gods they deny their own proclivity for evil. The delusional self-conception they hold of themselves is of faultlessness and/or moral purity as befits gods. In short, Progressive "elites" are haters of God the Father. They are:
"...lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient...ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God..." 2 Tim. 3:2
Second, God the Father Almighty is dead in their hearts....as dead as their love of truth... and as dead as their individual consciences, or nearly so. When these materialized souls speak of a god, it is a dead god â€” a god of forces, a god of their own invention. And when they profess themselves to be speakers of truth they lie, for their words have no fixed meaning.
Third, progressivism is neo-pagan monism. Monism is held in common by materialism, pantheism, and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems from Buddhism to Epicureanism, Gnosticism and today's New Age Cosmic Humanism.
Monism teaches that all that exists is "one self-creating, self-sufficient substance" which may be impersonal, unknowing divine spirit or Christ-consciousness (pantheism) or spiritless substance (materialism). Within this framework, all things are merely diverse parts of the one-substance.
Monism's greatest appeal lies in the fact that it conceptually erases the vast fixed-gulf between the supernatural God the Father Almighty and the natural dimension and man. In other words, Monism imaginatively dissolves the supernatural personal Creator into the natural dimension, thereby bringing heaven to earth and allowing man to divinize himself. Rousas Rushdoony explains:
"... much... is known of the concept of divine kingship, the king as god, and the god as king, as the divine-human link between heaven and earth. The god-king represented man on a higher (evolved, naturally selected) scale, man ascended, and the worship of such a god....was the assertion of the continuity of heaven and earth. It was the belief that all being was one being (materialist-pantheist monism), and the god therefore was an ascended man on that scale of being. The power manifested in the political order was thus a manifestation or apprehension and seizure of divine power (through the conceptual murder of God). It represented the triumph of a man (i.e., Hegel, Marx, Darwin, Freud, Lenin, Hitler, Obama) and of his people (the New Man of Communist Marxism, National Socialism and America)." (Rise of the Modern Moloch State â€” Global Spiritual Communism, L. Kimball, emphasis added)
Fourth, Progressive "elites" are envy-bitten hypocrites who project their own wickedness onto others, that is, onto scapegoats who they daily crucify...psychologically abuse. The abuse takes many forms:
Character assassination, baseless charges of hate, bigotry, fascism, and insanity as well as malignant backbiting, merciless ridicule, and malicious accusations aimed at producing a false sense of guilt that can be manipulated for the empowerment of the envious.
These and other evil tactics have been systematized by the evil as mind-control and psycho-political techniques and utilized today to manipulate unsuspecting Americans.
Fifth, Progressive "elites" are nihilists. Their souls are materialized (turned inward), thus they are prisoners of their own cosmically-inflated egos, out-of-control lusts, perversions, greed, gluttony, and wrath as well as of afflictions of the mind â€” envy, paranoia, fear of the void, anxiety dreams, evil fantasies, and peculiar ideas.
Believing in nothing higher than "self," they know only hatred, vengeance, and violence. Their consciences are depraved and their reason has degenerated into sophistry. They are revolutionaries of the void. And the scientifically-engineered New Man is a mirror-image of his "god's" own madness.
The consequences reaped by a society that rejects the transcendent God are madness, paranoia, debauchery, perversion, mass confusion, sexually transmitted diseases, lawlessness and finally, the collapse of society.
