You are so right savagesusie.
The war between Good and evil runs deep. If you think our country gets turned around by tax cutters your dreaming. It will take men and women of character willing to pledge their lives.
Whittaker Chambers wrote about the War between Good and Evil in Witness. He also thought the Good was losing in the 50’s because people were not willing to pledge their life for the cause. They looked the other way when evil came to their towns and allowed it to seep into curricula and TV. They just let the bread and circuses amuse them and did not rock the status quo—to be popular and part of the “hip crowd”.
People like McCarthy, Chambers, Goldwater who were willing to confront the extreme evil pouring into American institutitons were destroyed by the Communist press. Ideas were shaped for the masses by these Marxists in Hollywood and NYT and the constant propaganda that American press was a “free press”. Of course, Solzhenitsyn refuted that America’s press was any better than that of Stalin’s in 78 Harvard commencement address. It is on the Web and worth reading. He was another person who understood the Truth.
It will be a Life and Death fight. If we are not willing to stand up to this great evil, it will consume us. Pastor Bonhoeffer is our example—but, of course, he was killed.
