Hey Ho Western Civ will die slow

For the last 70 plus years you have been lied to. You may say, yeah so, tell me something I don't know. The thing is we have grown accustomed to being lied to by every one (even ourselves) that we're just as likely shrug it off than to even care about the consequences. The consequences are huge, so huge in fact you don't even see it when it's stomping on your feet and grabbing your wallet. America is on the very precipice of being lost and most Americans are too busy watching Breaking Bad or Dancing with the Stars to even give a damn.

What are you talking about fool?

Conspiracy theories of course. You know, the Soviet take over of the U.S.

Huh? The Soviet Union is dead, man get with the times.

Is it? 

Many years ago the list of communist goals for America was culled form a book called  "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen and brought to the attention of Congress in 1963. The reality of what has happened to this country in the interim is a testament to the power of the long view held by the true believers. In 2008 they had reached the very pinnacle by putting a neophyte (and true believer) in the White House with the help of a media complex that literally looked other way or outright lied to ensure his victory - twice. 

There have been bumps in road, I would say the era's of Eisenhower and Reagan slowed things down a bit, but it has been a slow steady march that has lead us to the deathbed of the West. It is amazing how many "goals" the communists (or socialists if you prefer) have achieved. 

I present nothing new here that we haven't heard before, but it doesn't mean the hand wringing over these cultural losses are any less serious especially when viewed together. Here in no particular order are the biggies...

- 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 technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

- Permit free trade between all nations regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

- Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

- Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

- Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
- Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
- Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

- Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
- Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man." 

- Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
- Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use "united force" to solve economic, political or social problems. 

  • - Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
  • - Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
  • Since all of these things have come to fruition and then some it's hard to look at this and say - well these things represent a natural progression from a under educated agrarian/religious paradigm to a modern view of things. That's rubbish. This was planned. Planned by the Soviets a century ago and carried out by a carefully cultivated progressive movement over the decades through emotional arguments. This is how we've wound up in today's politically correct, multicultural, morally relativistic, socialist swamp. 
  • It was born in the 1930's under the Roosevelt administration. 

  • We all know the greatest generation looks on Roosevelt as the Savior of the Nation. Was he? Roosevelt worked and lived side-by-side with a "co-president," Harry Hopkins and others, knowing or suspecting that Hopkins and a whole cadre of Federal officials were almost certainly communists. Hopkins probably determined much of U.S. policy for the during that time. In the early part of the twentieth century communism was not seen as the horror show we now know it is. Today, as the last of that generation dies off a few sober eyes have taken a look at what really happened during the 1930's and how World War II was fought to provide an edge not to the U.S. and it's western allies, but for the benefit of Stalin and the Soviets. Since the social progressive movement survives to this day the push back of these revelations is fierce.
  • The real shocker is that Joe McCarthy was right about all his conclusions about communist infiltration of the government (and Hollywood and thus the culture). It unsettling to say the least that most every thing we've been led to believe about America, about the goals of presidents and representatives, about our very belief system has just about all been lies.
  • The fact is Marxism has made more of an impact on the culture in the United States than most people want to believe. This while the media and academia actively promote Progressive Marxism as a myth. If we are ever to recover our Constitutional Republic as it was founded, we must be told the truth. What is the truth? Would we even know it if we heard it? I don't know...
  • So are we to be cynics about everything? Are we to shrug it off and plow forward with our own lives and let the chips fall where they may? Good questions. Simply putting politicians in office who claim to be against social progressivism (read Marxism) seems pointless since they are for the most part liars themselves. 
  • I would say first stop lying to yourself. Then gently, with kindness call out lies when you hear them. That's all one person can do.
  • Ugh

    "and most Americans are too busy watching Breaking Bad or Dancing with the Stars to even give a damn."

    I Get your point but beg to differ on the vehicle of driving the apathy of the American people. The foot firmly planted on the accelerator of the demise of western civilization is the cell phone. Where religion was once the opiate for the masses it is now clearly the Smart Phone.

    Most of us can't function without it, we're constantly checking for tweets, updating our status, or posting idiotic pictures of where we are and what we're doing. Mobile communications were supposed to open up a brave new world instead they've made us so self absorbed that we're oblivious to the world around us.

    But I could be wrong...

    Tim, amazingly the average person either doesn't see it or know what Marxism is - or - thinks it's good.

    Tom, true enough about the smart phone. The apathy is born of many mothers. Politics and, of course pop culture, in reality it is the ancient strategy of bread and circuses, keeping the people distracted long enough for the boiling frog strategy to work.

    Speaking of Soviets, there is this must see youtube video,
    a lecture on ideological subversion by a former KGB agent:

    "The main emphasis of the KGB is NOT in the area of intelligence at all, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process we call either ideological subversion, active measures.

    What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions. That process is legitimate and open, you can see it with your own eyes."
