A generation may be defined as the time between the birth of one generation and the birth of the next, generally twenty-five years. For my generation that equates to our children and their children, or about fifty years, give or take. Changes have occurred from one generation to the next since the beginning of time.
The changes that have occurred in civil society during my life–some 70+ years–are profound. I have seen the general disintegration of civility, manners, morals, honesty, integrity, an ingrained desire to be law-abiding, love of country, the work ethic that made the USA what it is, a belief in God that has forged this Republic in the crucible of fire; well, you get the idea. I could go on and on.
The USA is in an advanced state of disintegration and degeneration brought about by moral decay. Any public mention of God seems to be an antipathy to the Godless socialist’s hue and cry throughout the land, never mind that this country was founded on religious principles or that His Name is prominently displayed on our government buildings and throughout our founding documents.
Our society has become all about ME; what’s in it for ME, while we watch the very fabric of our once great social order crumble around us. We have plunged into a cesspool where homosexuals marry one another – to pass themselves off as somehow normal when they are an aberration of nature; young women abort their offspring because they don’t want to be bothered with the responsibility of rearing a new life.
Half the people in the country voted a man into the office of the Presidency for a second term who is the most unqualified, do-nothing individual to ever hold the office. He presides over an Executive branch of government administered by his fiat administration with an army of czars doing God knows what at every turn, facilitated by a corrupt Congress, and an inept Judiciary. Why was he elected: because he promised them Free Stuff? He and his minions espouse socialism, a system that has never worked in all of human history, vilifying the capitalistic system that has made this country great. Capitalism has set the US and other industrialized countries above the fray for generations, allowing them to feed and protect the less fortunate the world over. When comparing the two systems, realize that socialist countries feed and care for nobody save themselves and just barely at that. Their system of government allows for no excess, there is nothing left to help humanity. And, that is where the USA is headed, into the dark abyss of socialism.
How did all this come about in the space of 50 to 60-years? It didn’t, it actually began with that much revered socialist Abraham Lincoln. Now that the inexorable process of infiltrating our schools from beginning to end–the indoctrination process begins in kindergarten–all levels of government, and every social institution with the tenants of National Socialism is complete, the grand scheme has finally bubbled up to the attention of the myopic American people, well, some of them. The current President’s minions are working day and night to drive a stake into the heart of what remains of this Republic.
Unlike today, when I was a young man they had lots of trouble shoving the benefits of socialism down our throats. We met them on battlefields across the globe to stop the overt takeover of everything we held dear. Thanks to our socialist politicians we have not won an engagement–war is won when the enemy is mostly dead and completely defeated—since August 1945, the day that WWII ended. Since then, wars end when we cut and run or some politician says it is over; it is kind of hard to separate the two when we lose either way. But, I digress; we were talking about having socialism shoved down our throats.
What, or who, instilled in the young–boys and girls—a desire to further the cause of liberty; to conduct ones self as dictated by society; to be honest and forthright; to be the boys and girls worthy of accepting the mantle of our free society? Our parents, the foundation of our family, did that, as parents had to the best of their abilities through each preceding generation. Both parents performed a job that is missing in too much of modern society; they reared their children. Most of that fell to the mother because she was with the children more, even after they began their schooling, while the father worked to make a living for the family. With so many on welfare and other hand-out programs, that too has changed; the incentive to work for a living is gone from many of our fellow citizens.
Webster defines rear: to bring up, foster. The last word in this definition, foster, is the key: to give parental care, nurture, to promote the growth or development of, encourage. What I have observed nowadays is exactly the opposite. When did the change in the way we rear children occur? When the mother went to work outside the home. Let me repeat that because it is a key to many of our current problems: when the mother went to work outside the home. Without the mother’s iron will, children went their own way; girls became more promiscuous—don’t think so, been to a high school lately; boys growing to manhood gradually became more feminine, so they could be more in-touch with modern females, many of whom grew to expect that men were no better than they, so why not make them less manly, or girly men, as a famous California public figure appropriately referred to them. This male metamorphosis, thankfully, did not affect every male, but it has affected too many, making many of them accepting of homosexual lifestyles, without the work ethic previous generations were imbued with, a lawless behavior that they apparently think is cool, without direction or guidance and seemingly without a goal in life. What is life without goals, without dreams?
By re-electing Obama, the American people have indicated their willingness to embrace socialism. The changes this administration is making without the consent of the governed will profoundly affect every aspect of our lives, forever altering the fabric of this Republic. You asked for it folks and he will give it to you. By 2016 you will no longer recognize your own country.
