When Men Rule The World

Charlie Gard

It is July 9, 2017 and we are following the Saga of Charlie Gard.

Charlie is an 11-month old baby boy, in Great Britain, with what Doctors say is a rare ‘incurable’ condition: mitochondrial-depletion syndrome.  This means the energy necessary to keep his cells alive is missing and inactive. He cannot live this way.

Currently Charlie is on life-support and his parents want to take him to another country where he might get treatment. Seems the British Health System either cannot or will not act to try to save Charlie’s life.

Why? The odds are seriously against survival and Great Britain has a Socialist Healthcare System, not unlike what Progressives and others want to see in the U.S.

Charlie’s parents have received almost $2 mil in donations and at least two offers — one from the Vatican’s Hospital in Rome and the other from Pres. Trump — yet the British Health System, and Court System is still saying: NO!

THIS is National Healthcare, at work!

These ‘systems’ start out with the purpose of providing healthcare for all citizens. They devolve into a very expensive system that then rations healthcare, according to unemotional and detached ‘policy.’

And this is what many of our Leaders…. on both sides of the political aisle….want for the U.S. Oh, they will tell us differently, and mean it! But, once such a system is in place, ‘Charlie’ is Where It Goes!

In the 19th century, we called these people Progressives [Teddy Roosevelt]. In the early 20th century they were Socialists [Franklin Roosevelt], with their New Deal.  And, at the end of the 20th century, they were back to Progressives [Bill Clinton / Barack Obama].

More than 100 years of continual and consistent movement toward their ultimate goal: The Weakening (Destruction) of America (The Social / Religious System).

Today, the U.N. wants as many immigrants as possible to be able to move freely around the planet, regardless of Cost, Safety or Need. In their mind-set, the World is simply One Country! All these borders are unnecessary hindrances to free movement, they say. Borders are evil. Borders are just another way to persecute people you don’t like.

In the U.S. we have watched the Canadian Healthcare System for decades. It is patterned after Great Britain and has all the same problems. Chief among them is timely care.

Canadians who can afford it, come to the U.S. when they really need medical care…..NOW! A diagnoses of cancer may mean waiting 6 months just to get the test that will tell doctors what’s going on and how to treat it.  [Personal Experience With A Bible Forum Listener].

This is The One World Government System at work! As we move toward the biblical ‘end’ of things, we see (in Scripture) a world Dictator, of immense proportions, setting up systems to control the people. Those on his ‘team,’ no doubt, will receive good treatment, the rest of you can fend for yourself.

In the world of Empire Builders and Global Dictators, people are tools. Tools to be used to further their ends. North Korea and most Communist-Led Countries exist, today, as Living Examples of this principle. But history is riddled with such men and philosophies, with no hint that the future will produce any better.

Welcome To The Brave New World of The Secular Humanist!

Welcome To The Beginning of The End!

When Inclusivism Is More Important Than Doctrine

CSB Bible.jpg

Faced with declining membership among millennials, the Southern Baptists have not been bashful about catering to them. A few decades ago, they started establishing churches OUTSIDE the city. These New Churches were not called ‘Baptist’ — In some cases, not even “Churches.”

The New Lingo was designed to get people to come without turning them off, before they ever set foot in the door. They often removed all the standards: dress, music, songs, terminology. They ‘Celebrate Jesus,’ rather than ‘Worship God.’  They sing ‘Choruses’ and ‘Praise Songs,’ not ‘Hymns of the Faith’  Many began to stay away from Evangelistic sermons, focusing on ‘Feel-Good Talks.’  No more Doctrine!  It’s Application that matters!

And their ranks swelled! This New Philosophy Worked!  The Obvious Question Is: Worked For What?  For getting more people into the building!

The same is true with Bible Versions. Southern Baptists were not shy about embracing the Living Bible, the New International Version and the New English Version. And now it’s The Christian Standard Bible!

What’s different about it?  Ans: Enough that it can legally have it’s own ISBN.  And, make no mistake, THIS is what the NEW VERSIONS are about!  Royalties!!  Maybe not among the pastors, but certainly among the publishers!!

So, what does this New Version bring? The now-noteworthy illustration is The Gender Neutral Terminology. For what purpose?  The Official Ans: To make it more Contemporary.  The Real Ans: To make it less controversial in the minds of transgenders and others, who reject the binary Male v. Female designations, and get more people IN the door!

Southern Baptists are the largest so-called “Protestant Denomination” [note: Baptists are Not Protestants] in the country, and they held their annual convention a couple of weeks ago in Phoenix.  By published reports, the New Bible Version did not go over well!  Their congregations are mostly in the South and mostly conservative.

National Public Radio’s Tom Gjelten asked S.Bap Convention Rep., Dave Miller, about this New Version of the Bible.  Miller said: “As a revision of the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB), the CSB balances linguistic precision to the original languages and readability in contemporary English.” 

Trevin Wax, Bible and Reference Publisher, part of LifeWay, said: “We believe this is a translation that combines accuracy and readability without compromise.  With the CSB, Bible readers and teachers can rest assured they have a translation that communicates ancient truths to a contemporary audience as faithfully and clearly as possible.”  [And Therein Lies The Rub!!]

What Did They Do?  Well, more than 100 Bible scholars from 17 denominations translated the Holman Christian Standard Bible from the original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts. [These Baptist included every denomination known to mankind!]

NOTE: Doing this, they found and reported exactly NO gender-neutral renderings from the original mss.  So, where did they come from?  No doubt from the Revision & Oversight Committee.

This is a team….according to published reports.. of top biblical scholars, who incorporated advances in biblical scholarship since the original translation, as well as input from Bible scholars, pastors and readers to provide an accurate and readable translation.

Now….if you have studied the history of the New Testament Church, you no doubt read where the early Apostles and later Church Fathers did this, as well!  No? Well, what Bible have you been reading?  Oh….Until the mid 1970’s you read what the Church Fathers translated from what’s called the Textus Receptus: The Received Text.  “Received” that is, by The Church at large!

All the old and Great Versions of The Bible came from the TR, also known as the Byzantine Text — It’s origin.  All this with exactly NO gender-neutrality imposed!!!!  The Doctrine carrying it.

NOTE: There was another text…. CT – Critical Text (Catholic)  This text was uniformly rejected by the Early Church Fathers…..up to and including the 19th cent. Not until two Liberal, New Age Theologians [Westcott & Hort] came along and translated a Bible from that other text…. And even then, it took almost 100 years before anyone truly saved and knowledgable embraced it. [1980’s]

LifeWay President and CEO Thom S. Rainer said he was excited about the release of the CSB. “We know millions of pastors, teachers and Bible readers have a commitment to God’s Word.  At LifeWay, we share that commitment. 

“Because God’s Word is faithful and true, we wanted to provide a translation that is faithful to the original text, while being highly readable,” Rainer said. “I believe the CSB will engage more people in reading and sharing God’s Word.”

How can they say these things with a straight face?  Because, they abandoned the Bible of Augustine, Wycliff and Wesley, in favor of ‘More Modern Language Bibles.’  The American public did not ask from whence came thou?  We simply took our pastor’s word for it and, of course the Advertisers and Biblical Scholars who all said,  ‘This won’t hurt you!’

‘Yes, it’s different, in some places… but the language is more contemporary…. not thees, thous and shouldsts!!  And three generations later, the majority of true believers have no idea what they’re reading.  And…. by all indications… it’s about to get worse!!

Already, the CSB has been endorsed by numerous pastors including Tony Evans, Robby Gallaty, Eric Mason and Derwin Gray, as well as Bible teachers Kelly Minter, Lisa Harper and the team behind the popular women’s Bible study, ‘She Reads Truth.’  You’ve heard of these people…. right? No?  Well, Tony Evans, but that’s It!

They are ALL Contemporary and/or Charismatic.  Meaning? They don’t really care about Sources. They only care about what people want….. or what they can get them to want. You can bet money that if a liberal, neo-evangelical or charismatic likes a particular Bible, it does NOT offend anything they believe or preach. And, of course this is exactly what ‘Gender-Neutral’ language is designed to do…. Not offend!  Who? Homosexuals, Transgenders, and others who really don’t like to hear what God says. 

“But it’s not a big deal!?”  Religion writer Jonathan Merritt and a colleague theology professor dug through the new version and found the text used a great deal of gender-neutral language. There was not one or two of these shifts. There were hundreds of them.

ONE Example – Matthew 23:8 previously had Jesus saying,  “….be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.”

In this new Bible, it’s – “you have one teacher, and you are all brothers and sisters.”

Nicer? Probably. Accurate To The Original Greek? NO!  However, a professor of biblical studies at Boyce College, is quoted as saying: ‘the original actually refers to both men and women.’  WHICH IT DOES!  So, they’ve simply updated the language.

See?  Well, maybe not!  You see these same changes were rejected, just 10 years ago, by the same people who are being asked to accept this, now.  What has changed?  Ans: The same thing that’s changed in most churches….TIME & The INVASION OF THE PROFANE CULTURE!

The commitment to God’s unchanging Word that supercedes cultural changes…..something every generation did until the 20th cent… has been altered, undermined and deftly removed from the minds and hearts of those who sit under this sort of preaching.

The THEOLOGY here? God has no Daughters! Only Sons!!

Gal. 3:26 -29  26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.  27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.  28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29  And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

There is ONE Verse, however, that seems to contradict all this….II Cor 6:18 where Paul writes that God has said, ‘come out from among them …. and you shall be sons and daughters’

Culturally…in biblical days, daughters  could not inherit.  Daughters are not to teach Theology to men.  Daughters are not to have Authority over men. The Prophets were men. The Priests were men. The Apostles were men. The Elders, Bishops, Deacons… All men.  And Of course, there is No marriage in heaven…. but (we) are as angels in heaven. Mt. 22:30

However…. In The Earthly Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, they do ALL these and more….Violating The Clear Word of God that designates men only.

WHAT’S THE DOCTRINE?  In Heaven, however, it appears we will have equal status…. since there is no male and no female with God or in Heaven. And this is The Point! which the New Translations wish to sacrifice on the altar of expediency and inclusivism.

We will…. No Doubt….hear more about this.

Is Technology Coming To Our Rescue?

facial-recognition

Technology is quickly outpacing our ability to keep up. Taking all of it into account, technology is keeping us more connected and informed and less anonymous.

How about a satellite-imaging company that has launched a fleet of miniaturized satellites to ‘map’ the entire globe, everyday?  Or 33 satellites, about the size of a loaf of bread, now circling the globe? It’s the largest fleet of satellites doing Earth imaging in history, and the goal is to have 133 satellites operational. The company has already begun sharing its data with organizations such as Amnesty International, which used the company’s imagery to track refugee camps in Syria.

The Monitoring of the Andean Amazon Project used Planet’s images to locate illegal mining and deforestation in Peru. Care to know what else they can ‘see?’

How about computers that can tell what you’re thinking? This is the next phase of human-computer interaction.

Monitoring people’s brain activity in real time and recognizing specific thoughts (of “tree” versus “dog” or of a particular pizza topping).  This technology will widen its use even more in the coming years.

Facial Recognition Technologies Are Spreading Rapidly. Sources for these ‘faces’ are also spreading rapidly. Photos have long been used for identification and security purposes. However, indications are that advances in facial recognition are fast outpacing the attendant privacy concerns.

Although there are myriads of hidden cameras placed strategically on every major street and within buildings, there is seemingly little public comfort that it’s all necessary and that there are adequate measures to minimize the risk of abuse.

Is facial recognition out of control?  A prominent case study was recently presented by reporters for the Baltimoresun.com.

It involved a five-year-old program in Maryland that lets police compare images of unidentified criminal suspects with millions of motor vehicle records — using highly advanced facial recognition software.

According to state and federal data, Maryland is one of at least five states that are giving the FBI access to driver’s licenses, local police mug shots and other corrections records. A dozen other states provide driver’s license photographs only. Other states have laws prohibiting the use of facial recognition. Police have used the Maryland Image Repository System with little fanfare since 2011.

This program has attracted increased scrutiny since the American Civil Liberties Union in California released documents showing the system was used to monitor protesters during the unrest and rioting in Baltimore last year.  That followed other recent disclosures about law enforcement in Baltimore adopting clandestine technologies, including cellphone tracking and aerial surveillance.

Do You Know About “Deep Learning” neural network programs? These use algorithms with many layers… Lower-level calculations feed into higher ones…. Like? Like our brains!!

Google has an ‘Artificial Intelligence’ Deep Learning system. It defeated the world’s best ‘Go’ player [Go is apparently a popular strategy board game, after trouncing the European GO champion.

How? By calculating a number of potential moves that exceeds the number of atoms in the universe and choosing the best. WOW! Where did the inventors get such an idea? From the human brain!

Our brains makes connections between neurons, with lower-level data from many neurons feeding into ‘higher’ groups of neurons, repeated over many layers. The calculations are then fed to a higher layer of the program and so on…. apparently just like our brains do.

Three scientists have created the world’s smallest machines. They are comprised of linked-up molecules… that are ‘contraptions’ that can do work. One is a tiny lift — artificial muscles and a mini motor. They are 1000 times thinner than a strand of hair. Care to imagine where this can take us?

Another device can read your emotions by bouncing wireless signals off your body. It claims an 87% accuracy rating. Oh, and it’s smaller than a Wi-Fi router. There’s also a transmission system that can send your passwords through your BODY instead of by Wi-Fi.

There’s a fabric that can be woven into clothing, which will harvest and store energy from both the Sun and your body movements, to power wearable devices. How about liquid clothing…. that ‘heals’ itself, when torn?

These are only a few of the new inventions we’ll be seeing in the future. Our grandchildren will wonder how we old-folks got along without them! You mean you had to charge a battery?

Guess Who Else Will Find This Valuable?

What Are The Effects of Pornography?

Brain On Porn

We’re being told to accept all sorts of sexual deviancy or be judgmental. Worse, we are denying people their right to express themselves however they choose…. a form of punitive social control. How? By telling them they OUGHT NOT … fill in the blank.

The sad result is that NO sin is now being completely outlawed….in The Visible Church!

The invention of Video Tapes stimulated the Porn Industry and brought it into every day life…. impacting people and families it never did or could before.

So, what of it?

What of it is that it is destructive, in ways we do not realize. Based on extensive research, scientists have learned that porn changes not just the function, but the structure of the brain.

Parts of the brain actually begin to shrink with its use and others become desensitized.  In the picture of three brains, at the top of this blog, the one on the far right is what happens with extensive porn use, Worse than heroin. Worse than alcohol or drug use.

Why? Harvard Scientist, Kevin Majeres, Explains [Jon Miltimore|July 26, 2016]

Kevin Majeres is a psychiatrist specializing in cognitive-behavioral therapy and a faculty member of Harvard Medical School. He says scientists have discovered that if you place a male rat in a cage with a receptive female, they will mate; but once done, the male rat will not mate more times, even if the female is still receptive. He loses all sexual interest.

But if, right after he finishes with the first female, you put in a second receptive female, he will immediately mate again; and again a third, and so on, until he nearly dies. This effect has been found in every animal studied. It’s called the Coolidge effect.

This is WHY pornography causes a vicious circle. But now comes the WHAT! When someone views pornography, he gets overstimulated by dopamine; so his brain destroys some dopamine receptors. This makes him feel depleted, so he goes back to pornography, but, having fewer dopamine receptors it now requires more to get the same dopamine thrill.

This only causes his brain to destroy more receptors; so he feels an even greater need for pornography to stimulate him. As this cycle continues, we start to find that we have to use pornography for longer and longer periods to have the same effect, and must visit more and more sites to accomplish the same result.

But even more porn sites eventually don’t cut it. What then? Then, you have to stimulate another emotion: like fear or disgust or shock or surprise. You need to start moving to kinkier things, things that make you afraid or make you feel a bit sick; and so you start experimenting with various perversions.

Jon Miltimore is the Senior Editor of Intellectual Takeout. He writes that the average porn use starts at age 11 and the highest level of use is between 11 and 17. This means that as these brains grow, they are growing destructive pathways very early on.

Historically, over 90% of adult porn stars were sexually abused as children.
In psychology, their behavior is called re-enactment. Healthy individuals – emotionally and mentally – are not drawn to lifelong dreams of being sex for hire in any way no matter how lucrative.

That truly born-again men and women engage in and/or get hooked, is a sad reality. It’s not unusual, given the human psyche and the ease with which it can be accessed. What’s sad is how many CONTINUE, often thinking no one knows. Or no one will ever find out.

But the Omniscient God of Heaven Knows! He wants His children pure! Would such a God, Who is also Omnipotent make sure you are exposed [pardon the pun]? Would He do such a thing? Yes!

But, that’s not the highest and best motivation. It should be that Christians….finding themselves drawn to sin….would do whatever is necessary to STOP it! If they are truly born-again of the Spirit of God, The Bible says they have a divine WANT TO installed in their heart in order to glorify God. [Phil. 2:13]

That this isn’t helping, in an observably consistent manner, is a testimony against the 21st Cent. Church! She isn’t teaching these things? She isn’t particular who she identifies as a Christian? She isn’t being consistent in her commitments to God’s Word…. which says a man guilty of such a thing is no longer qualified to hold any Office in The Church!

Governmental Oversight…. Of Churches!?

Iowa Civil Rights

The Fort DesMoines Church of Christ is locked in a battle with the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, over what the pastor (or anyone who speaks to an audience of people) can say.

It’s under the heading of Equal Rights!

The ironic thing, however, is that a Constitutional Right is being attacked in order to preserve a supposed Right! Something our current President says he wants to be his ‘Legacy Issue.’

At Stake? What can be said in a meeting, where the public is invited to attend…. In this case, Church.

In Defense of the critics, let me quickly add: Church is no place for ad hominem attacks on anyone or anything.

It is a place for:

a. lifting up the Lord Jesus Christ

b. prayer for others and for self

c. instruction in Christian Doctrine & Practice

d. challenges for greater understanding and commitment to God

It well may be that the DesMoines Church of Christ leadership has used the gathering of local citizens to rail against a particular sinful practice or person.

It may be that a Sermon on Romans, chapter 1, became too personal, citing public figures or political organizations which illustrate The Points.

It may simply be that these folks believe The Bible!

Or, it may be The Sign in front of the Church [That Reads: Gay Is Not Okay] became too much for them!

Whatever it is, the DesMoines Civil Rights Commission wants it to STOP!

I entreat these Church folks to be more sensitive to the difference between instruction in God’s Word and railing against a person, if this is the case.

I entreat them (and all preachers/teachers) to teach God’s Word, rather than merely vent political or moral opinions.

At the same time, I entreat Commission Members to read The Constitution, particularly The Bills of Rights! Chief among them, Article ONE!

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The Law of the Land ALLOWS people to do what these folks are accused of doing! [So Far]  It is a petty and petulant person or group of persons which seeks to control it, beyond entreaty.

The Civil Rights Commission wants more! It wants every public place to allow men to enter women’s shower rooms, dressing rooms and restrooms if they say they are women, and banning statements in meetings “open to the public” that “might cause individuals to believe that they are unwelcome because of their perceived gender identity.”

This Group’s website features a montage of faces and the words which reflect on the Civil Rights Battle of the 1950s and ’60s. Does this mean the right for men to shower with women is on the same level as racial bias?

The lawsuit, being brought by what appears to be a Christian Legal Organization, charges the State mandates violate the U.S. Constitution’s protections for free speech, religion, expressive association, due process and the right to peaceably assemble.

Named as defendants are commission members, as well as Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller.

TODAY? This lawsuit will probably fail!

TOMORROW?

As The West Collapses

 

 

Orlando blood Lines

People Lining Up To Give Blood In Orlando ….  Because Christians Hate Homosexuals?

We Americans have watched Europe dissolve into social, moral, political chaos, for decades and chalked it up to a different mind-set.

Now that mind-set is here! The Progressive social and political philosophy is now so ingrained in our corporate psyche, we simply accept it with very little question. Everything from Religion, to Politics, to Economics, to Social Issues.

On Sunday, a “20-year-old Islamic Radical” who was on the F.B.I. radar for possible problems, “talked about killing all the time.” He was “not a stable person,” and was making trips to Saudi Arabia, while working Security for G4S at PGA Village for several months in 2014-15.

This man was able to purchase automatic weapons just two weeks before killing 50 human beings and wounding 53 more, and then being killed by law-enforcement. Law Enforcement and witnesses said he was smiling all the while. His attack was upon a Gay Bar! People, in his religious opinion, who did not deserve to live! People who were an affront to Allah!

The Liberal (read: Godless) element in our society wants us to believe Christians hate homosexuals. They gleefully point to the fact that we won’t bake them cakes or take their wedding pictures. For this we must be scandalized,  suffer the loss of our business and pay hefty fines.

Muslims, on the other hand, kill homosexuals in the most gruesome of ways, for no reason other than they are, or have practiced homosexuality! When that happens there is a measured response: ‘Not all Muslims are this bad. Only the radicals,’ we’re told.  To paint them with a broad brush is bigotry, we’re told. In America, every citizen has the right to his own opinions and life-style choices, we’re told.

Our own President, commenting on the carnage in Orlando, this week, once again, refused to mention this man’s religious affiliation, dancing around the issue with generalizations and a ‘measured response.’ It is Radical Islam that brought down the Twin Towers. It is Radical Islam that encourages ‘snipers’ to shoot people while they’re pumping gas. A Muslim psychiatrist guns down thirteen unarmed soldiers while yelling praises to Allah and it’s labeled ‘Work Place Violence.’

The shooter in Orlando made a call to a Florida 911 center to pledge allegiance to ISIS, but even this is not enough to identify the carnage with Islam. Muslims routinely make it abundantly clear they will kill homosexuals in the cruelest of ways! But the Leader of the Free World can’t bring himself to condemn this kind of institutionalized behavior.

Let it be a Christian expressing his or her belief regarding homosexuality and all of Christendom is brought into the condemnation. We are branded homophobes and bigots because we cannot approve of this dangerous and destructive practice. The folks from the Westbury Baptist Church who showed up at Military Funerals to mock and disrupt, were Christians! That NOTHING they did corresponded to Christian belief was never considered!

There have been 74 attacks upon Americans, on American soil, by Muslims since 1972. The Death Toll stands at 3157 souls. None of these had anything to do with Peace Loving Islam! They were all committed by radicalized men and women who were operating outside the tenants of Islam…even as many of them shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they did so.

ON THE OTHER SIDE: People calling themselves Christians rail against homosexuality as not simply a destructive and disgusting behavior, but contrary to Divine Law, and THEY are branded bigots and terrorists. NOTE: These are only the proverbial ‘sticks and stones’ we were told would ‘never hurt you,’ not Assault Rifles!

That those who publicly rail against individuals in homosexual relationships are operating OUTSIDE biblical warrant is NEVER mentioned! No one protects Christianity, while condemning out-spoken critics, claiming to be Christian.

TRUTH? Christianity is about loving others, regardless of what they do or what they are. We do not have to accept it, but Christianity is about recognizing we were ALL ‘dead in trespasses and sins,’ before Jesus came into our lives.

Christianity is about reaching out to people [all sorts of people] with a Life-Giving Message of Redemption, not pointing fingers of indignation and slandering those who act out in sinful ways.

Christianity has no Public Relations Expert to make certain what’s printed is accurate. Christianity has no ‘Pastor-In-Chief’ to guard what’s being said so as not to give the wrong impressions. Christianity doesn’t even have a Generally-Accepted Uniform Definition as to what it is! If you claim to be a Christian, the media believes you and now whatever you say or do is what Christianity is all about!

At the very least, this not Fair! At it’s worst, this serves to color Christians and Christianity in a way Moslem are not! Such a situation makes no sense, until you realize that Islam is NOT The Real Threat to the god of this world! Humanism, Occultism, Voodooism, and any number of anti-christian religious systems pose no threat to the enemy of our soul. Only Biblical Christianity Does This!

And Biblical Christianity MUST be corrupted, co-opted and confused, if Satan is to make the headway he needs, in order to take control of this world’s people and systems.

How’s He Doing?

When Young Adults Are So Easily Misled

Bernie Rally

When you look at a Campaign Stop by Bernie Sanders, what do you see? There are no older people in those crowds! They are largely 20 & 30-somethings. Why are so many younger voters enamored of ‘Old’ Bernie Sanders? He’s older than me!!

The Iowa Caucus, which is one of the very first in the Nation, exposed this Giant Chasm: Sanders won 84% of the Under 30 vote. He also dominated in the 30-44 category, with 58% v. Hillary’s 37%.

Who Are These People? They’re Millennials. Young people born in the 1980’s and 1990’s. They are children and grandchildren of the Baby Boomers: born to opulence, nurtured on permissiveness, with little or no experience in the critical area of ’cause-and-effect.’

They’re Democrats? NO! They’re Socialists. They’re called ‘Sandernistas,’ and they out number Hillary supporters 6 to 1 in the polls. Former professor Mark Pastin, writing in The Weekly Standard, says “the most compelling explanation,” for young Democrats’ overwhelming preference for Sanders, “is that young voters actually like the idea of a socialist revolution.”

And Why Not? They’ve been raised on The Great Society, a host of Means-Tested Social Programs, Socialized Healthcare, Subsidized College Loans, Paid Job Training and a Government Program for just about every need. They know nothing of self-sufficiency or what we use to call The Protestant Work Ethic. In short, they’re Socialists, not Capitalists.

Where did they come from? They came from homes in which parents left the nurturing and educating of their children to The State! Homes where they were indoctrinated by a Federal Education System, a Vulgar Media and A Limitless Internet. Homes devoid of the basic rigors of Life!

Does it matter? Probably not! The days of seeing clearly the philosophical dangers in the various ‘progressive’ policies is gone. There are very few, today, who care much less understand what German Nationalism or Marxist Communism was, let alone the social ‘seed’ from which they sprang.

These young people are rallying around a man who seems to know what he’s doing and what his ideas / policies can effect. That he has never made any progress with this philosophy, over the last 25 years or that these ideas have NEVER worked, anytime they’ve been tried, doesn’t occur to them. They have no historical context, thanks to our Federal Indoctrination System (formerly The Public School).

None of these young people have thought about where any of this will take them. THEY aren’t able to succeed, in this social-economic environment, so what do they have to lose? Bernie’s an old man, who’s been through it all. Surely he knows The Way. All we have to do is Follow.

We’ve seen the “Man-On-The-Street” Interviews of College Students. Ask them anything about U.S. History, and they draw a blank! Why is America here! Upon what was it founded? Why? How does The System work? Why does it work that way? None of this matters! If it did, schools would teach it and young people would know it! They know who Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber is! How about Flo Rida?  or Maroon 5?  I threw them in to show you I’m Hip!  Oops: I mean I’m Down W’d It!

We’re watching our country, our culture, our world slip off the edge into oblivion. If there were something better, threatening to replace it, that would be one thing. But, this is clearly destructive in a way that makes it hard to imagine how we could recover. That so many younger people are enthralled is truly scary.

The Communists loved to tell us that they will conquer us without ever firing a shot! Who knew they were so smart?

When the last bastion of Western Civilization falls, what’s left?
