Americaâ€™s Second Civil War
By: Linda Kimball
It has been reported that Gov. Schwarzenegger caved into the persistent demands of Cultural Marxists and signed into law SB 1441. This law—a foul subversion of our Rule of Law and Constitutional rights—serves to further undermine the traditional family and parental rights by forcing extreme sex education upon children. Campaign for Children and Families in California and America (CCFAC) is outraged and appalled by Schwarzeneggerâ€™s cowardly capitulation. Schwarzenegger has â€œtrampled the religious freedom to satisfy hyperactive sexual activists…Schwarzenegger is doing what Gray Davis did—trample religious freedom at the bidding of liberal activists from San Francisco and Hollywood. Heâ€™s not the lesser of two evils, heâ€™s doing evil.â€ (Schwarzenegger Squashes Religious Freedom, Save California, 8/29/06)
Americanâ€™s are increasingly puzzled, infuriated, and alarmed by the nonstop erosion of their freedoms. They want to know, â€œWhatâ€™s going on and who are these Americans whoâ€™re working to deprive us of our rights and freedoms?â€
In the â€œThe Siege of Western Civilization,â€ Herb Meyers, former CIA analyst in the Reagan administration and one of the first scholars to predict the implosion of the Soviet Union, explains that there are three major threats to the survival of Western Christian-Judeo Civilization. The first of these is the war with radical Islam. The second is the incredible plunging birthrates throughout the West and Japan. We have stopped breeding, said Meyers, and this may well lead not only to destruction of the world economy, but to the extinction of entire populations. Nothing like this has ever happened before in the history of the world, declared Herb. Western Europe and Japan, said Meyers, are catastrophes simply waiting to happen. The third threat is what Meyers termed the â€˜second civil warâ€™ being waged within America by a coalition of God-hating progressive secular humanists (socialists), and Cultural Marxists (multiculturalists). As Meyers cautioned, these revolutionaries mean to overthrow and destroy the America of our Founders and its traditional Christian-Judeo based culture.
What is Communism?
In theory, communism is a classless social system in which all productive property is owned equally by the community rather than by the individual. This system therefore requires uniformity in education, food, clothing, dwellings, job, speech, thought, and even conscience. Because everything belongs to the State—including all citizens—and all social goods are to be shared equally, polymorphous sexual fluidity plays a prominent role in an aggregate of this sort. According to communist theory, a state of â€œsocial justiceâ€ will have been achieved when all individuality has been subsumed into the â€˜groupâ€™ and all goods are shared equally.
History tells us that the earliest attempt at building a communist society took place in ancient Crete, around 1300 BC. This experiment inspired Lycurgus to set up a similar regime in Sparta. As Plutarch informs us, there was a uniform network consisting of education, gymnastics, and military training for youth of both sexes. Public meals and sleeping quarters were provided by the State and all land â€˜fairlyâ€™ redistributed. Plutarch observed that because people themselves are viewed as property of the State, â€œno man was at liberty to live as he pleased, the city being like one great camp where all had their stated allowance.â€
As Lycurgus was inspired by the Cretan experiment, Plato in turn, was inspired by the Lycurgus experiment. Platoâ€™s ideal communist society would be ruled by philosopher kings and there would be â€œsharing of women and children among these, eugenic breeding, marriages controlled by the state, infanticide, abortion, and strictest censorship, all aimed at moulding citizens to the ideal design of his republic.â€ (The Theme is Freedom, M. Stanton Evans, p. 134)
In speaking of what led to the downfall of the communist Oneida Community in Oneida, New York (1848), William Hinds commented, â€œThe first step out of communism was taken when â€˜mine and thineâ€™ were applied to husband and wife; then followed naturally an exclusive interest in children; then the desire to accumulate individual property for their present and future use.â€ (American Communities, Hinds, 1902)
As revealed by Hinds, the traditional family is the foundation of personal property, which is why Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, George Lukacs and comrades sought its destruction. Likewise, itâ€™s why todayâ€™s Cultural Marxists are viciously attacking it and promoting sexually fluid alternatives such as polygamy and same-sex marriages. Additionally, since all goods are to be shared equallyâ€”even sex— and promiscuity is, therefore, a prominent feature of secularized communal societies, Christian sexual ethics such as abstinence, fidelity, and monogamy are as antithetical as are the ideas of personal property and individual rights and freedoms.
Historically, all attempts at creating communist utopias have ended in failure. On one hand, the impossible dream of eradicating social classes has inevitably birthed totalitarian ruling classes. On the other hand, communism is quite simply, abhorrent and unnatural and people in their right minds want no part of it, which is why communists in this century have slaughtered in excess of 100 million people in their insanely evil quest to force this catastrophically unnatural system upon peopleâ€¦for their own good, of course. Seen in this light, the utopian ideal has been one of most vilely destructive fantasies to ever have infected the mind of men.
Who are the Enemy Combatants?
Worshippers of the communist principle (Cultural Marxists and secular humanists) are the enemy combatants who, while posing as patriotic Americans, are by deed waging a second civil war against the America of our Founders and traditional values Americans. With their disguises removed and their contemptible goals revealed it becomes clear as to why traditional marriage and Christianity are under a brutally relentless assault. It likewise focuses the light of truth upon the underlying motivation of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit who lashed out at parents on Nov. 2, 2005. In the ruling handed down by these black-robed totalitarians, it was declared that the upbringing of children, â€œdoes not extend beyond the threshold of the school doorâ€¦There is no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children (and) parents have no due process or privacy right to override determinations of public schoolsâ€¦â€ These despots, who view children as chattel of the State and parents as sperm/egg donors, emphasized that the parents, â€œfundamental right to control the education of their children isâ€¦substantially diminished.â€ (Judicial Supremacists Lash Out at Parents, Phyllis Schlafly Report, Eagleforum, 2005)
Americaâ€™s bastard childrenâ€”Cultural Marxists and progressive secular humanistsâ€”are following the strategic plan for the overthrow of America that was designed by Marxist theoreticians such as George Lukacs and Antonio Gramsci of the Frankfurt Institute, a Marxist think-tank. According to plan, revolutionaries are dechristianizing America and sexualizing and dumbing-down her children while simultaneously encouraging kids to rebel against their parents. They are subverting the Rule of Law and Constitution, undermining national security and weapons-defense systems, working to erase our borders, preventing the US from drilling for much needed oil, colluding with Islamofascists, and provoking unassimilated immigrants into open rebellion. Additionally, they have created the abomination of special rights groups whose â€˜special rightsâ€™ are enforced by quota systems, psychopolitical â€˜sensitivity and diversity trainingâ€™, Stalinist speech codes and fascist hate-crime laws. All of the aforementioned lend themselves to the disintegration of society and the unleashing of chaosâ€¦necessary prerequisites for revolution.
Until the advent of Christ—creator of mankind and Author of individual and political freedom— history was essentially a dog-eat-dog world. It was a â€˜survival of the fittestâ€™ world in which the common man dwelt in fear and submission to his government. Power flowed from the gods and goddesses to predatory kings, emperors, and monarchs and then they did whatever they wanted and told the people what they could or could not have in terms of freedoms and privileges.
The greatest revolution in the history of the world— the American Revolution— radically changed the tyrannical â€˜top-downâ€™ model. Americaâ€™s Revolution led to the creation of something wholly unique—a Constitutional Republic where power flowed from God—our Creator—to all of the people, hence the term, â€œwe the people.â€ Nowhere in the world but in America do â€œwe the peopleâ€—empowered by our Creator—tell the government what it is allowed to do.
Itâ€™s in the Genesis account—where God made man in His own image and gave him dominion over the earth—where the all important and immutable first principles of life and liberty come from. In the Declaration of Independence these principles are expressed thusly, â€œthat all people are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rightsâ€¦among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.â€
These immutable first principles are exposited upon and made secure by the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Rule of Law. Our rights and liberties—when rightly exercised within the limitations of moral discipline— lead to the creation of a dynamic, prosperous society in which decency, safety, families, free markets, innovation, and creativity flourish for the good of all.
â€œThe general principles on which the fathers achieved independence wereâ€¦the general principles of Christianityâ€¦those general principlesâ€¦are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God; and that those principles of liberty are as unalterable as human nature.â€ (Works, Vol. x. pp.45-46, Thomas Jefferson, June 28, 1813)
On behalf of a phantasmagorical utopia that exists only within the collective mind of the chronically disconnected-from-reality Left, Cultural Marxists and their allies—both national and internationalâ€”are waging an all-out revolution to overturn the American Revolution and thereby destroy the America bequeathed to us by our Founders.
The wholesale destruction of the highest, most advanced form of civilization the world has ever seen is happening because, â€œWeâ€™ve forgotten what Western civilization is,â€ said Meyers, â€œwe no longer teach it in the schools.â€ â€œOur culture is Western Civilization. This is who we are,â€ explained Herb Meyers. â€œWe need to understand what Western Civilization is all about, such as the rule of law, human rights, and economic liberty, and above all we need to teach this to our children.
Western Civilization is completely bound to our Creator. He it is who endows us with our inalienable individual rights and liberties. Thus it is of the highest priority that we not only prevent Cultural Marxists and their atheist brethren—some of whom are even on the Right– from finishing the job of severing Christianity from our government and culture, as theyâ€™ve so insidiously done, but that we repair the damage done by them. For if they succeed in finishing the job, Western Civilization will end and brutal tyranny unlike anything the world has yet experienced will commence.
Let us heed the prophetic advice of Daniel Webster who cautioned, â€œHold on my friends to the Constitution and the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster and what has happened once in 6000 years may not happen again. Hold onto the Constitution, for if the American constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.â€
