I would like to expand on the information in my last blog, about ObamaCare and its real purposes, a bit.
First, a quote from it:
First, a word about America being, or not being, a Christian nation.
For it has all - all - been for a larger Purpose.
And one that we agreed to, before entering into the field of play.
You innocent communists in our time: You never really believed the Marxian propaganda, did you, that the state, having obtained total control over The People, would then just wither away?? Rather more obvious a potential outcome was observed by Lord Acton, in coming up with his famous dictum, that "Power tends to corrupt; and absolute power corrupts absolutely".
2 Two points here. One: The first sentence of this paragraph is pretty much taken verbatim from an interview with Obama by a talk radio show host back when Obama was still in the Illinois Senate, wherein he espoused his attitude regarding the Constitution, and its need, in his mind, for a major overhaul, along that line as expressed. That is, away from championing the individual - the whole thrust of Western civilization; which champions the primacy of, and responsibility of, the individual - to championing the collective. And two: how that former attitude fits in so well with the idea of a larger picture of Life - that it is part of a larger Whole. In which the individual soul is responsible for its own development; 'salvation,' as it were.
This business, of the importance of the 'Western Civilization' idea of the primacy of the individual over the collective, is undoubtedly why the study of 'Western Civ' was beginning to be phased out of my (liberal) university's core curriculum, just after I went through what has become blatantly the indoctrination process of the Left; and, for all I know, has been eliminated altogether by now.
These people mean business. And have been in it for a long time; and for the long haul. It would behoove 'the individual' in the West to wake up to that fact. Which we are, in any event, beginning to do, by necessity, if not simply by virtue of the fact of the increasingly obvious nature of what's going on in our day. And time.
Leaving the responsibility, of awareness - rather than the sleepy business-as-usual mentality that we have been allowed to dwell in for some time - squarely up to us. This generation. Chosen - for whatever all reason - to bear the standard. And duty.
I like to think that we were chosen, because - as the saying has it - when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
As long as they can get their mesmerizing fascination with the tube out of the way. In time. Before they go down the tubes.
(N.B. "The crisis of the West consists in the West having become uncertain of its purpose." Leo Strauss; from the Introduction to his book 'The City and Man'. As quoted in the December 2012 issue of Imprimis, a publication of Hillsdale College, in an interview with its president, Larry P. Arnn. Who is doing a fine job in 'holding the vision'.
As for a different vision from the 'Western Civ'/limited-government one, my statement of "the indoctrination process of the Left" was in reference to the likes of "the long march through the institutions" that German Marxist student leader Rudi Dutschke wrote about, in building on Communist theoretician/intellectual Antonio Gramschi's ideas on what he called Cultural Hegemony.
No couch potatoes, these people. Divorced somewhat from reality, yes. But lazy as a sloth, no.
Time for the Right - both middle/upper class and working class - to wake up fully to what they are up against. And slouches - both academically and any other way - need not to apply to the team, for a position on it. We have work to do; and can't tailor our sails to the weakest of the crew. Get up to speed. Or get out of the way. You would be part of the problem.
This is war, ladies and gentlemen. All-out war. And the sooner that fact of life is recognized, the better.
To be dealt with ultimately in a loving way. For more on which, read on.)

Ex-communist David Horowitz and his team at the Freedom Center are doing very good work, in getting out 'inside info' to the public regarding what's going down politically in our day. That's www.frontpagemag.com
