Government Increasingly Only Source of “True Knowledge” as Paganism Overtakes Christianity

An astounding transformation in the concept of truth has occurred the last few decades in America. No longer are statements or ideas accepted simply on their soundness or logical consistency. In fact, logic often has no impact upon an idea’s popularity. Increasingly, an idea needs official government backing before it is deemed “true.” This change bodes extreme danger for the future of our democracy.

How exactly this change is occurring is a fascinating question. Without doubt, it’s happened while government has grown towards supreme authority while the church’s traditional role of defender of truth has withered away. Also, the demise of the liberal arts teaching model has played a prominent role. This metamorphosis was achieved not by accident but by systematic attack upon the West’s institutions. Further, wholesale prostitution of the journalistic profession made these facts easy to obscure. We are left with an echo-chamber repeating the worst of progressive ideas while a complicit media beds down like the Octomom in procreative mode with leftist politicos. Ultimately, to put the problem into its most trenchant form, we’re observing two world-views at war against one another. This is paganism versus the biblical; or as an updated description—humanism versus the traditional Western model.

What bothers me—is that the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the USA. It doesn’t matter what ridiculous ideology that Spinoza, Marx, Hegel, etc-—they didn’t define our Ideals—they were the opposite of the Founding Father’s ideas and conflict with all our Amendments, etc. They endorse Rule of Man—not our Rule of Law—based on the Supreme Law which is ALWAYS GOD’s Law, since it is the ONE standard SET IN THE Constitution. This is ALWAYS the Judeo/Christian God’s standards.

This being said-—why do we allow our Supreme Court to throw out the Constitution and our God and replace the greatest ideals in the history of man with the atheist/secular/pagan ideas which have been known to destroy civil societies and result in death for millions.

The transformation is by indoctrination in schools and by Marxist media. We allowed Dewey to take our Natural Law Theory base-—kick it out with all Classical and Christian Virtues—replace it with socialist propaganda and destruction of knowledge—and then we wonder why we have people who can’t think—like obama—just ideologues who are never rational. These leftists are evil—they do not believe in freedom and individualism—just collectivism and fascism—government knows everything and set all rules and controls everyone—even what you are allowed to think.

Very well stated...it’s not very fun dealing with people who give themselves carte blanche permission to lie, is it? Further, I have never understood how these libs always think they are hundred times smarter than everyone else!

They think they are the smartest because they are irrational. The ideology (Leftism) is based on no logic-—no knowledge of truth—all twisted, biased facts and lies.

It is hard to deal with these people unless you understand how ignorant they are and how the schools have intentionally destroyed their intellect—with help of the media.

Just dysfunctions, lies constantly promoted as “good”. We have Evil becoming Good and Wrong behavior being declared Right. Kids as young as 2 are being exposed and conditioned into this illogical, confusing reality. They can NEVER make sense of such a world where sodomy is “good” and saying “God” is evil.

We have to get back to educating our children with Classical (Christian) Virtues and with the highest Truth—God. It is what our Constitution is based on—for all standards and was the basis of our education until Dewey. We need one standard of Right and Wrong and it is to unify the country and have equality under the law and get rid of ‘arbitrary’ law. Can’t play with hundreds of value systems which don’t value Virtue—we will implode.

Sometimes I wonder if America will get split, like ancient Israel, between Left & Right? I can’t see liberals ever compromising after getting Barack in office.
