Why "equality" must die
Renew America ^ | 10-3-13 | Selwyn Duke

Take a look at the following list and tell me if anything strikes you: Prudence






Charity Viewing these, the Seven Cardinal Virtues, anything make an impression? Okay, now try the Seven Heavenly Virtues of: Chastity






Humility Anything? What strikes me is that equality is not among them.

Scour great works, such as the Bible, and you won't find much talk of equality – that is, unless you consider The Communist Manifesto a great work. One thing about virtues – which are defined as "good moral habits" – is that their exercise doesn't require the cooperation, or compulsion, of another person. I can cultivate prudence, temperance, courage and the other virtues in myself, and I can do it all by myself. So while a virtuous society is desirable, virtue can also be a purely personal goal. And this is one time when focusing on the self needn't be selfish, for we should take the log out of our own eyes before worrying about the speck in our brother's.

But equality is far different. Just as there can be no numerical equality without at least two numbers, there can be no human equality on an island with a population of one. And while you could increase patience through personal change, increasing equality necessitates societal change; it involves raising people up as much as they're able – which requires their cooperation – and insofar as they're unable, it involves bringing others down. This is where compulsion enters the equation. The point is that, unlike with virtues, increasing equality is always an endeavor of the collective.

Equality is in Stalin’s Constitution and the French Revolution’s main rallying call. It is total godless Marxism. The elimination of individuality of human beings. The “Collective”-—everyone is exactly the same and interchangeable with no “roles” of female/male allowed.

Justice is the Queen of the Cardinal Virtues with Courage, Wisdom, and Temperance. All of these Virtues are necessary for a person to be Virtuous (Excellent). You need all of them—to be “Just”. Without Wisdom or Courage you can never be Just. The Catholic Church added to Aristotle’s Virtues-—the Theological Virtues—Hope Love and Faith (not in that order.). But there are lesser Virtues-—but none equal to the above. Our Justice System—is a Virtue System—based on Christian Ethics—and all Laws are moral and have to promote Virtue because that is the definition of “Justice”. Promoting Vice will make the Law, cease to be Just-—and cease to be Law.

We are equal under the law-—that is it. The Radical Egalitarianism of Marx strips human beings of ALL unique qualities which make them “different” from others-—it is why they are trying to eliminate “marriage” -—so that men and women are exactly the same/interchangeable-—to destroy the Natural Family formation so kids will eventually not even know who they are biologically connected to-—to erase “special” loyalties which genetics cause. Genetics give people a connection to the past and future and creates knowledge of oneself and is important to “happiness” and humanization—since learning in a caring natural family is ideal for mental health of children so they can learn to relate to all human beings, both men and women and learn about both sexes—which teaches them “who” they are and about God’s Design.

That is why little kids are taught they have the “Right” to kill their own genetic offspring-—unthinkable before the Feminist Marxist 70s in our Christian Nation. They are forcing Satanic Religion on our children—with that and homosexuality both antithetical to our Constitution and Natural Laws. Conditioning and Brainwashing a generation so they will not be Virtuous and able to use Reason (Natural Laws).

Marxists knew in the 30’s to destroy Virtue would collapse culture-—to destroy Virtue, they had to destroy Christianity and the Natural Family. Its all discussed in their papers in the 30’s. Christianity enshrined the Laws of Nature-—under Aquinas and Locke and were the basis of Reason/Science. (Natural Philosophy).

Marxists twist words-—destroy meaning to control perceptions and discourse. They twisted “Equality” to mean men and women have to be “treated” exactly the same (combat, etc) which emasculates men and defeminizes women and throws out NATURAL LAW and Reason/Biology.

It removes that which makes up the fundamental identity of the person, their sex, male or female. It is to strip children of Reason-—Blur the Truth-—to erase the Christian Concepts of the Family and “roles” needed for the emotional healthy child which requires the nurture of females and the protection of males to learn and understand the World and ALL the people in it-—and who and what they are. They need role models and people who care about their future-—otherwise everything collapses or gets EXTREMELY warped.

Truth/God’s Design/Reality is skewed when God/Christianity is removed from our Justice System-—which is a Virtue system based on Christian Ethics. Pagan/Satanic/occult Ethics are antithetical to the Constitution and our “Justice” system and Individual Rights. Read my tagline. Laws when they cease to be Just, cease to be Law-—that was used in the Nuremberg Trials and by MLK, jr and comes from St. Thomas A.

Those are “positive rights” which in truth are no rights at all since they violate someone else’s negative rights-

Equality of opportunity is an American ideal. Equality of outcome is a communist ideal - for the proletariat.
