In 1926, Governor Theodore Christianson of Minnesota established the Minnesota Crime Commission to study crime and evaluate its causes. The commission eventually concluded that criminal tendencies were not the result of poverty, education, or environment as Darwinian humanists claimed. Instead, it offered the following brutal observation: "Every baby starts life as a little savage. He is completely selfish and self-centered. He wants what he wants when he wants it: his bottle, his mother's attention, his playmates toys...or whatever. Deny him these and he seethes with rage and aggressiveness which could be murderous were he not so helpless. He's dirty; he has no morals, no knowledge, no developed skills. This means that all children, not just certain children, but all children, are born delinquent. If permitted to continue in their self-centered world of infancy, given free rein to their impulsive actions to satisfy each want, every child would grow up a criminal, a thief, a killer, a rapist." (Born Liberal, Raised Right, Reb Bradley, p. 21)
The architects of our nation were men who did not shy away from the ugly truth about man's dark side, which meant that if the American experiment in national self-government was to succeed, then as the Founders strongly advised, all children would need to be trained against their natural self-centered inclinations from birth:
"Since private and public Vices, are in Reality...connected (it is necessary) that the Utmost Pains be taken by the Public, to have the Principle of Virtue early inculcated on the minds of...children, and the moral Sense kept alive...For no people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued when knowledge is diffused and Virtue preserved. On the contrary, when People are universally ignorant and debauched...they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign invaders." (Our Sacred Honor, Bennett, p. 26)
"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." (Benjamin Franklin, quoted in Born Liberal Raised Right, p. 15)
"The government...can never be in danger of degenerating into a monarchy, an oligarchy, an aristocracy, or any other despotic or oppressive form so long as there shall remain any virtue in the body of the people." George Washington (ibid, p. 15)
With Obama's re-election it is now evident that the scales have tipped in favor of narcissism, moral confusion, debauchery, parasitism, sexual anarchy, decadence, viciousness and lawlessness.
In his commentary, "A eulogy for America" Peter Lemiska, former Senior Special Agent of the U.S. Secret Service, noted:
"Half the country is elated, and the other half is numb...there are dark days ahead for the country. Obamacare remains intact, and most Americans will be stunned at the resulting higher costs and lower quality of care. Small businesses will curtail hiring because of its impact. Scandals like Solyndra, Fast and Furious, and Benghazi will remain buried. More will occur. The national debt will continue to skyrocket, as entitlements expand, and our country cannonballs toward bankruptcy. More liberal justices will be appointed to the Supreme Court. Congress and the Constitution will become less relevant as Obama imposes more of his will on the country through Executive Order. The country will be flooded with illegal aliens as our borders disintegrate, and the Democrats will have established a solid voting bloc and dream constituency â€” a majority of Americans totally dependent on government." (Lemiska, Renew America, Nov. 8, 2012)
Lemiska concludes that with this election,
"...we now know that the country has fundamentally changed. It's been remolded by Socialists and Communists who have wormed their way into our government, the news media, and our education system."
The goal of undermining, destroying and restructuring America would not have been possible if masses of Americans---both Christian and non-Christian--- had taken it upon themselves to do the work of seeking truth and right knowledge together with the equally difficult work of training their children against their natural inclinations and inculcating the principle of virtue into their minds. But in the main, Obama supporters have tamely acquiesced to spoon-fed propaganda as well as to handing their children over to the corrupters who control our so-called schools. Thus they never learned those traditional moral values that made our country great.
Over fifty years ago Socialists, Communists, Progressive Liberals and other seculars dedicated to an agenda of evil began implementing a diabolically conceived process to bring about the corruption of Americans---especially Christians over and across the entire denominational spectrum:
"We have battled since the centuryâ€™s turn to bring to nothingâ€¦all Christian influences and we are succeeding. You must work until officials of city, county, and state will not think twice before they pounce upon religious groups as public enemies. (There must) be aâ€¦foaming hatred of religionâ€¦a belief that Christian practice is vicious, bad, insanity causing, publicly hated and intolerable.â€ (Red Communist Textbook on Psychopolitics)
Early conservative intellectual Anthony Harrigan lashed out at the corrupters for deliberately fostering a code of "immorality." Through media and other mind-shaping organs America's corrupt ruling class are forcing,
"...the acceptance of pornography as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion...Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class which, having led to destruction the humane elements in our civilization, is conducting us to ruin." They seek to create liberal-bred barbarians "motivated by a destructive impulse" and unchecked by "traditional values and restraints." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 40)
Today Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, mainline Protestant and Evangelical Christians unchecked by traditional values and restraints are a dime a dozen as Walter Kirn, literary editor for GQ magazine discovered. In a blistering critique of modern evangelical Christian culture entitled, "What Would Jesus Do?" Kirn concluded that growing millions of contemporary evangelicals live in a multimillion dollar Christian alternaculture,
"...in which everything in mainstream culture gets cloned and then leached of 'sinful' content..." (The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom, David Kupelian, p.228)
To gain firsthand experience of the Christian alternaculture Kirn spent,
"...seven strange days walking in the shoes of the faithful." He left behind "the fallen world of secular American pop culture and (entered) into the self-contained parallel universe of American Christian pop culture...watching PAX instead of NBC.." For Christian television fare "you get shows like the Sky Angel network's 'Ten Most Wanted'---a low-voltage rip-off of...MTV music-video countdown programs...An ad comes on for a pro-life pregnancy hot line, and then it's back to the shabby veejay (who) slips (into) jive talk for the sign-off: 'Thanks for hangin' wit' me....' Such lame mimicry is the curse of most youth ministries." (ibid., p. 230)
After spending seven days in the evangelical ghetto Kirn describes it as thin, weak and cumulatively demoralizing. He concludes that the problem is a lack of faith:
"Without the courage to lead, it numbly follows, picking up the major media's scraps and gluing them back together with a cross on top."
The key psychological strategy behind the corrupter's diabolical technique is the knowledge that all individuals have an inherent fear of being alienated from the group. Thus through the media, Hollywood, the music industry, compromised theologians and other mind-shaping institutions they psychologically manipulate this fear to herd victims toward compromise of conscience and conviction.
In the case of evangelicals, the consequences are stark and terrible. First, it has resulted in a lack of courage of conviction, an absolute necessity both for leadership and the bold speaking of truth to lies.
Second, there is the infantilized, demoralizing evangelical alternaculture---the media's debauchery glued together with a cross on top.
And third, more than six-million morally confused and/or morally autonomous evangelical Christians voted for a President who supports abortion (death), same-sex marriage (sodomy), totalitarian green initiatives (pantheism, Gaia, slavery), and who was touted by Newsweek as America's first gay president.
According to Joel Rosenberg, 42% of the Protestant vote, 50% of the Catholic vote and 21% of the Evangelical vote went for Obama. This means that all of these Christians either surrendered their Biblical convictions in the voting booth or they never really had any to begin with. (Joel C. Rosenberg Blog, Nov. 8, 2012)
Corruption has won. With Obamas' re-election it can be seen that the scales are tipped in favor of universal ignorance and moral corruption.
Over fifty years ago John Hallowell, another spiritually perceptive intellectual conservative, foresaw Americas' coming doom and warned that if America is to find redemption from the tyranny of evil,
"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George Nash, p. 52)
Along with the restoration of the concept of sin parents must train their children against their natural inclinations and inculcate the principles of virtue in their minds. The emotional self-indulgence of parents today,
"...is depriving children the opportunity to learn through adversity. Most adolescents from affluent families have all the useful accessories---cell phones, credit cards, computers, and cars---but they have few of the responsibilities that build character...Indulged children become susceptible to self-absorption, depression, anxiety, and lack of self-control." (Ed Shipman, p. 29, Born Liberal, Raised Right)
