America: Socialized Cradle to Corpse. Mission Accomplished…?
America: a Social Study to Social-Ism.
Transmission of Values: intercepted, disrupted, distorted, aborted….destoyed?
America and her obsession with the herd instinct of socialization, is swiftly running into the shackles of socialism.
Externally controlled by her environment, the American people continue to feast on the bread and circuses, which are stampeding her en mass, as a group, herd, and mob of one reflexive movement.
Consider the premier position Americans place on their Socialization.
1. Pre-school prep for social skills, social awareness, socialization with other immature socialites. Picking up more than just the latest virus or trending bacteria. Learning groupthink, peer pressure, conformity, and collaborative collectivism before “me” can spell “we” on the ipad.
2. Educational focus in government schools is now over 50% geared toward SEL, Social Emotional “Learning”. Let your Social Emotional midbrain override the reasoning of your cerebral cortex, home of the executive function and your spiritual soul that counsels, filters and holds the reins on your reason.
3. Social Media addiction of socializing for all to read, dissect, expose, critique on Face book, Twitter, instant messaging, chat rooms blah, blah, blah.
4. Social Studies…a car wash of acid rain showering revenge on the prosperous foundations of America’s self sacrificing Christian Founders with poisonous opinions as to their motives for founding a nation based upon the Rule of Law and astute awareness of human nature absent the infusion of God.
5. Social Welfare, the removal of personal, family, and church responsibility with the replacement of the “city of man”, absent God; and the silencing of those non-profits who partake of administrative government favors, as long as they stay politically silent and politically connected. Humanist Manifesto Signer Theodore Brameld’s non-profits: The main branch of the Administrative State.
Think of the flocks, schools, herds of social animals- birds, fish, horses, deer, cows, elephants, dogs, sheep etc. that at the stomp of a foot, a flash of a movement, a POUNCE, a roar…a squeak—they move as “one” unit, one mass, one herd running in fear.
The predator and the prey.
Without stopping to Think and analyze reality as an individual observer.
They just “do it”, because it has been instinctively engineered, socially engineered in them to run with the crowd.
In order for a national culture, a religious culture, or a family culture to survive and the members of that culture to survive, there must be an accurate transmission of the values, priorities, the constancies and absolutes that comprise the identity of that “culture.”
The longest known culture is the Jews. For nearly 4,000 years the Jewish people have successfully transmitted their culture. Every Jew knows their identity as God’s chosen people. Every Jew remembers the history and why they need to remember the history….so that they will survive and be blessed and be a blessing to the nations.
Statesman Edmund Burke (1729-1797) says to ignore this enormous bulk of human cultural knowledge, or to tinker with it impudently, leaves man afloat in a sea of emotions and ambitions, with only a scanty stock of formal learning and the puny resources of individual reason to sustain him.
“Principle is the right reason expressed in permanent form…One arrives at principle through comprehension of human nature and history, looked upon as manifestations of Divine purpose…”*
Prime Minister, Statesman, Historian Winston Churchill (1874-1965) cried out for his island nation of Great Britain to remember and reclaim her Anchor of Christ before it was too late. Churchill recognized that when societies and cultures disconnect themselves form their historical moorings; when a generation isolates itself from its past and measures progress in terms of its own accumulations, or outcomes, the history of that civilization comes to a close.
Churchill recognized that what holds a culture, a society or a nation together are those shared values and traditions that are transmitted to each generation as a legacy, passed on in fortified form to their children.
Educator, Author C. S. Lewis (1898-1963) in The Abolition of Man, evidences the reality of Absolute Truth, declared values and the vital role that each culture places on this knowledge and transmission of these foundational Truths to their children. From Aristotle, to Plato, Jew to Christian, Oriental to Stoic, there is an established rule of right and wrong, sublime and disgusting to be nurtured into a child by the parents prior to the age of reasoning. So that when this age of reasoning arrives, the youth will recognize it and be guided by those established objective values and truths, discerning truth from falsehood.
Without this successful transmission, the nurturing and establishing of absolute values…
“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise….we laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.
We castrate and bid the geldings to be fruitful!”
The goals and tools of those intent on tyranny, despotism, the totalitarian administrative state, are to
Separate parents from their children, and children from the values of their parents.
Armchair philosopher Karl Marx’s stated goals were: to dethrone God and to destroy Capitalism.
Humanist Manifesto signer and America’s Education Reformer John Dewey disdained the authority of parents over the education of their children. Dewey believed children needed to be liberated from the influence of the pre-judgments, the “prejudice” of traditions, religion and the values which parents transmit to their children.
Dewey’s goals were not only to transform education, but also to transform society itself by Socialization.
Dewey foresaw that by socializing students individualism would be rejected and replaced with herd cooperation progressing society toward a Utopia managed by “experts”; absent of personal knowing of absolutes, citizens would be ever in need of being managed.
Progressive President Woodrow Wilson, formerly president of Stanford University, stated that:
“The use of a university is to make young gentleman as unlike their fathers as possible.”
Russian Socialist Vladimir Turchenko in his 1976 Progress publication The Scientific and Technological Revolution and the Revolution in Education (the blueprint for America’s education today)
states that teaching will be done with teaching machines, instruction will begin from a younger age, linking instruction with productive labor, and “continuous” credentialed education. Under Socialism, education is not only the personal affair of every individual, but also the concern of the collective as it is the essence of the new man….(back cover of book)
As state and national credentialed “experts” push universal pre-school socializing children from conception, one hears applause from the graves of Marx, Engels, Dewey, Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson and the corps of Socialists in the current Administrative States.
To those that are listening beyond mere sensual registry, the groans of grief and intercession are acknowledged in nearly audible proportions from the Godly virtue-honoring Statesman of the past: Moses, David, Burke, Locke, Washington, Adams, Madison, Montesquieu, Lincoln, Churchill, C.S. Lewis, and Reagan who labored, lead and championed to transmit the life sustaining Values and Virtues of a culture capable of self-government and Liberty under God.
Has America been socialized from her Anchor?
Is the Socialist Mission complete?
If you have any love for your children, and any respect for their Creator, then stop “socializing” and start nurturing.
Stop following the herd instinct yourself, and with your children embrace the Absolute Truths, the Virtues and Values that bring blessing and the Presence of God to the families, the communities, the states, and the nations that honor Him as Sovereign.
“Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live.
Teach them to your children and to their children after them.
…Keep His decrees and commands, ….so that it will go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the LORD your God gives you for all time.”
Deuteronomy 4:9, 40
