Reversing America’s decline?

Can be said in one word: impeachment.

There’s no way you’re going to reverse the decline of America until you first get a handle on our education system. What you are seeing in the ballot box is what you’re seeing in the classroom.

>Western Europe is rapidly losing its own civilization for identical reasons (with invaders more poisonous than America’s, and its own reproductive decadence, thrown in to expedite the process).<

.
I can’t agree with the reasoning that invaders into Europe are any more poisonous than those coming into the USA.

The whole global and unidirectional migration from 3rd world to the West has been planned and executed by the UN at the detriment of the West.

And how has that migration benefitted the countries of the 3rd world? I don’t see any improvement in their quality of life.

For America to stop circling the drain, its people must first accept said drain is being circled. Most Americans have no clue as to why $16.5 trillion debt is a bad thing for the nation as a whole. Self-absorbed and self-interested as they are, their sole concern is getting their piece of the government pie.

After the gargantuan task of educating a questionably educable populace, leaders who will commit to traditional principles that brought America to greatness must be elected.

Minimally, a generation will pass before this ship can be righted again, if ever.

A great awareness starts with education.

“Grinding America Down”

The conclusion of the movie points to the path of saving America.

I would definitely like to see our culture’s decline reverse itself, but I think that Belloc was right back in 1937 when he spoke at Fordham about the Crisi of Civilization being one that has come upon us because of events long ago. The Reformation destroyed the authority of the Catholic Church. Without the philosophy of Christendom, namely society being ordered to assist individuals to attain salvation, society has been left with the State as the supreme authority and that led to usury becoming common and capitalism which while, not in itself bad, created a large population that is dependent upon those who happen to have more money. This imbalance has ,ed to the false solution of communism which is inevitable unless we bring back the morality of the only Church which existed before the reformation. For Jesus prayed for unity not individual material bliss. The book by Belloc is called Crisis of Civilization and it is worth reading no matter what your bias.

The ongoing and not-so-gradual loss of American Civilization is the result of two related phenomena: the invasion of our country from the southern border, and our elites' culture of self-loathing that oozed out of the noxious slime of the 60's.

Gotta disagree here.

The invasion from the south is of neither a quantity nor quality that we haven't handled in previous episodes of immigration. For instance, while reading a Civil War history recently I ran across the fact that in 1860 a majority of the inhabitants of WI were foreign-born.

The second claim hits closer to the mark, and is the reason we aren't handling assimilation well. Why should anyone want to assimilate into a despicable society, or at any rate one portrayed as such by its leaders?

But these people aren't "self-loathing," in fact it would be difficult to find any group in history with a higher opinion of itself.

What they are is "America-loathing" and on a higher level "Western Civilization loathing." Their very attitude of loathing for their own societies absolves them (in their own minds) of any of the sins of those societies.

So they can hate "America" and love themselves. In fact, they love themselves more because they hate "America."

This is, of course, why there is uncritical demand for random change and fundamental transformation of "America." Since "America" is the ultime evil, any change can only be an improvement.

Did I miss something or did you forget to mention legal immigration that brings in 1.2 million LEGAL immigrants each year, most of whom are poor, uneducated, and unskilled--and 87% of whom are minorities as classificed by the USG?

It was the Immigration Act of 1965 that changed the demography of this country forever. It was pushed by folks like Ted Kennedy who wanted America to look like the rest of the world. America was no longer to be a predominantly white nation dominated by Western Civilization and culture.

I’m beginning to favor a kind of political judo whereby we give the f’ing democrats everything they want and when the bloated wreckage finally collapses we pick up the pieces and try to rebuild. The choice this time couldn’t have been plainer or easier and the nitwits chose disaster.

Reap and sow, etc.

All self-respecting civilizations defend themselves vigorously from hostile invaders.

Yes...But we’re talking about liberals here!

our elites' culture of self-loathing that oozed out of the noxious slime of the 60's.

Their loathing by libtards of the traditional values that made America great is a product mainly of a combination of three atheistic and materialistic worldviews that despise the values of the Founding Fathers and Christianity: secular humanism, Marxism, and postmodernism.If left unchecked, the ideas of these three have or will utterly destroy America.

The ongoing and not-so-gradual loss of American Civilization is the result of two related phenomena: ...

If parents made sure that their children were taught the constitutional statutes which divide state and federal government powers, Section 8 of Article I, Article V and the 10th Amendment, and you could probably fit those statutes on two pages, then we probably wouldn't have the unconstitutionally big federal government that we have today.

In fact, since you indicated immigration issues, please note the following. Noting that Section 8 mentioned above says nothing about immigration, the 10th Amendment clarifies in general that the states had reserved government power to regulate immigration uniquely to themselves, not the Oval Office and Congress. But don't take my word for it. Consider Thomas Jefferson's 10A-based clarification that immigration is a state power issue.

"4. _Resolved_, That alien friends are under the jurisdiction and protection of the laws of the State wherein they are: that no power over them has been delegated to the United States, nor prohibited to the individual States, distinct from their power over citizens. And it being true as a general principle, and one of the amendments to the Constitution having also declared, that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people," the act of the Congress of the United States, passed on the -- day of July, 1798, intituled "An Act concerning aliens," which assumes powers over alien friends, not delegated by the Constitution, is not law, but is altogether void, and of no force." --Thomas Jefferson, Draft of the Kentucky Resolutions - October 1798.

Again, when citizens are not taught the constitutional division of federal and state government powers, they tend to naturally, but wrongly conclude that the federal government has unlimited powers.

This article is a very nice way to say that white people are under attack by savages. I’ve given up trying to divide the warring groups by conservative vs liberal. Anyone with a brain in their head knows that Mau Mau Buckwheat hates white people, and he wants to kill white people by the millions. He is America’s Hitler. Fortunately, his army is composed of 20 IQ apes who can’t hold a glock straight. And fortunately for us, white Americans are the best fighters in the world, bar none.

Ban me.
