Building on the prior post, there are a number of things within the destruction of culture which involve fooling the citizens to drive benefit to those in positions of power. Sadly, we in this constitutional republic have allowed such concentration of power (money) to flow to one central location.
The language is being debased to instill confusion and divorce the mind from reality. Below are some of the more visible memes in no particular order. The headings come from present day media narratives, the comments below are my view as what is being actually done or the goal desired by those who are promoting the fallacy.
Climate Change (or Global Warming or Global Cooling or whatever du jour) will destroy the planet
This OpEd does a far better job at explaining the BS than I can muster – go read it. Site is loaded with advertising, but the actual article is interesting.
There is lack of equity between races or groups
America is pretty much the first and only country founded on the concept of individual rights granted by God. What that means in simple language is that we are all born with the potential for success under a free society. No one, not even God can guarantee equality of outcomes, which is what this equity crap refers to. Taking from those who achieve and giving a small pittance of it to those who do not is not going to make anything “even” other than uniformity of misery while those who control become wealthy, stealing from the process. It is about control and money, nothing more.
Carbon neutrality is a beneficial goal for mankind
See Climate Change above. Nothing more than another scheme to take money from nations that achieve and pocketing most of it by those in control with a pittance going to others. Just another scam. Modern human society requires energy to function and survive. The best energy density for money is still naturally occurring oil, gas and minerals (yes, flowing water too but that is limited). BTW, there is a pretty strong amount of evidence that processes within this planet generate oil and natural gas continually. Solar, wind, tides are all fine but still non-competitive with earth fuels and are horribly unreliable. You want the best possible zero carbon system? Convert over to nuclear across the board for 100% of our electricity leaving earth fuels for heat, transportation, clothing, drugs, plastics and the thousands of other products derived from same (your cell phone would not exist without oil and energy). BTW, if you like food (most of us like it), eliminate all “carbon” otherwise known as carbon dioxide and there won’t be enough food to survive. The planet is greener and more food is produced now than ever before. Greatest scam ever invented and swallowed by masses of hysterical idiots, I mean Al Gore! Really??. Yeah sure, China will meet all the goals, as in never.
America has stolen the wealth of others (variations thereof)
Sounds pithy does it not? No mention that the resources that developed this nation have been internal for most of our history, with a short aberration in the 20th Century where we imported energy -(cheaply for a while but to the detriment of jobs and hence society, later rendered un-necessary due to advances in technology developed in country. And to those who jump up and down “because slavery”, the U.S. importation and use of slave labor was miniscule and did not last long compared to other nations. Nor does it own up to the fact that this awful practice is still on going in Africa, the Middle East and China. No theft was involved with any of it BTW, it has always been a business transaction with monies paid for goods purchased. Maybe someone should check the income records of certain African coastal nations for the period .
Electric cars are the future of transportation for all
If and when the day arrives, where battery technology provides equal or better energy density, ease of use and 10 minute full refueling as compared to petroleum products, let me know, doubt I will be alive by then. Of course no one wants to discuss the fact that if all 400 million+ vehicles currently in use go electric and need to hook up to the grid each night, the entire power distribution system would fail. To revamp it would require the construction of 5 power plants per week for several years (gosh, exactly what China is doing today –gasp!) not to mention distribution grid upgrades. We are talking Trillions of dollars. Sorry, ain’t gonna happen much less with aircraft, heavy haul and ocean going vessels. Oh, and that pesky little detail, most of the critical materials for electric everything are currently controlled by China and other paragons of stability like Boliva, while we are forbidden from using our own resources. Go figure. And before you jump up and down and yell “Hydrogen”, go take a look at the energy required to separate oxygen from hydrogen and what it takes to compress, store (safely) and use Hydrogen in transportation. Again, not in the foreseeable future.
Mass transit is needed and must be forced on the nation
This canard comes from the communist playbook and has more to do with control and union featherbedding (D party kickbacks) than being beneficial to the individual. Places with high population density and short commute distances might be a good fit for the concept but there is no way for mass transit to match the convenience and flexibility of individual transport. What is more, countries with vast open spaces and sparse population do not lend themselves to economical mass transit, simply does not work and wishing it so goes right there with global warming, leprechaun rainbows and unicorn farts.
Open borders, defund the police, everyone has a right to come to this country etc.
Where to start with this crap. First off is to recognize it is a perfectly good way (and plan) to destroy the institutions that make the country function and cause fractious infighting within the nation, all to perceived benefit to the ones who think they can control the situation. No assimilation, no adapting to the American way of life and customs, infinite gifting of ever diminishing value currency to those who do not produce and never will given the lack of assimilation. You have open borders, you do not have a nation state, you have anarchy and boy, are those pushing this in for a rude awakening when it hits critical mass. Sadly the mathematics involved is pretty disturbing. For example, once you get more than 20% Muslim majority in any area, the agitation for Sharia goes full tilt, go read about what France is currently facing. Not to pick only on that group alone, bring in 30 million unskilled, un-assimilable Hispanic OTM’s and Mexicans, you get the same corrosive destruction of society, hastened by drugs, lawlessness and general concentration of peoples in self forming ghettos which rapidly become no-go zones (again – see France and now Sweden). De-fund the police is nothing more than pandering to various groups as a means of causing instability and hastening the collapse of American society (under the delusion the “elites” remain in charge). The only good aspect of this is that it is so far confined mostly to D run states and cities, some of which are hazily grasping that they are no longer in control of the local situation. Then there is the question on whom is funding the anarchy? Hint, in fair measure, it is our tax money, thank you 44/46.
Equality under the law (or Laws apply only to those not in positions of power)
Will end it with this one, as nothing has become more apparent to most of us over these past 20 years than the fact that there are those in the federal government and peripheral to it that believe themselves, their cronies and financiers, to be above the law.
One set of rules for them based on “who you know” and another set for all the rest of us, subject to a heavily corrupt system of justice, trampling of the constitution and the complete co-opting of the 4th branch of government, the supposed watchdogs of the press. Now just lapdogs to the D party as currently constituted. Pravda on the Potomac is not just a bumper sticker. In this area we are indeed already a banana republic.
When you step back and run a checklist, it is plain to see where 100 years of intentional corrosion of society and culture has taken the nation, courts, politics, schools, law enforcement, intel agencies, even the church and possibly the armed forces (upper echelons). One and all corrupted by those seeking to stay in power and gain wealth, permanently, by any means. Things that can’t go on forever won’t. The unanswered question if how soon and how painful hitting the wall will be.
