It is all about worldview—ideas. Too many people think that all their children need is healthy food and exercise. They ignore the ideas that are being pumped into their heads 24/7. Their little brains soak up everything in the first 7 years of life—everything. If behavior of hitting their mother is seen—it becomes ingrained in them. Behaviors are habituated and internalized in those years...sexual identity stays open until 12 or first experience with sex. Behavior determines what you think and how you think. Morality is formed in early life and if not, it rots the culture from inside (Gramsci/Marcuse/Dewey, etc. cultural Marxists introduced PC and separation of Church and State to destroy morality being taught in the schools.) McGuffey Readers taught to respect God and all his creations—all people because they were the children of God. That ended in the 1930’s. Since then, Holmes destroyed the Rule of Law—his separation from morality from law—Legal Positivism which is no longer “Just Law” (Cicero). Long March (through our Institutions) Roger Kimbal (sp?) chronicles the steps the Marxists took to destroy the universities, the public schools, marriage contracts—all aspects of the legal system.

Now, the idea of God and exposure to role models like George Washington and Lincoln and Wilberforce —all great people started being vilified by leftists in 1913—Beard and Carl Becker-—All Quiet on the Western Front-—to destroy those ideas of Honor, Duty, Courage and Virtue. It was steered by the German Philosophy of the 19th century—Intentionally—to transform Western Civilization from Christianity to atheism.

It is really simple to understand. Christianity was a universal religion which gave importance to all human beings—even the unborn and the old and feeble and the lepers. At its basis is self-sacrifice. It teaches the Truth—that this life is hard, but do good and work hard and your rewards will be great, if not in this life then in the next life. It is the reason we have had Churchill, Bonhoeffer, Lincoln, Newton, Solzhenitsyn, Dante, Bach, Reagan, Thatcher, Lord Acton and JF Kennedy. Not people of perfection, but people who will stand up to great evils and not allow them—even lose their life because of that stand.

Communism loathes those who thwart their ideas and socialists want control over every thought and action—They want serfdom because they want the power to eliminate those who they deem are unworthy of life. They want an unpolluted playground, just for themselves and their families. They want to be able to use all others for their own wicked pleasures. They are truly evil.

Good grief, savagesusie, who are you?

LOL

Just someone who loves ideas and loves to read the oddest books ever written, although Margaret Thatcher’s autobiography (I am reading right now) seems rather ordinary, although she was wise beyond her years, even as a child.

I studied Thomas Kuhn in college and understand paradigm shifts and the power of ideas. I read Bloom’s book, The Closing of the American Mind which was really horrifying....to think we are intentionally denying children the knowledge of a Classical education, when it created Edison, Beethoven, Wright Bros, Goethe, Milton, Shakespeare, Newton, Locke, Reid. Why would we get rid of the very ideas that put us on the Moon, unless we wanted useful idiots?

I just find the genius of man fascinating, and the ideas that created the amazing men like Bonhoeffer, Solzhenitsyn, Churchill, Lincoln, Jefferson, Wilberforce, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, a gift to mankind, directly from God.

Men who stood on principle and are brilliant, so rare in history, but nevertheless, they appear. It is fascinating. I am a devoted Cicero fan and a student of Natural Law Theory and believe that there is nothing more evil and destructive to the soul and freedom than socialism. It is truly evil.
