In the Shadow of Leviathan: America’s Arising Fear-Based Society
By: Linda Kimball
“Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for awhile…but sooner or later they were bound to get you.” George Orwell, 1984
“The fact is we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the ability—the right—to think or speak for one’s self. Thinking is becoming a crime.” (Globally Acceptable Truth and the Crime of Thinking, Tom DeWeese, Address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference, 10/16/09)
In an article entitled â€œDems Undermine Free Speech in Hate Crimes Ploy,â€ the Washington Examiner exposes the insidious machinations of House statists in their determination to impose totalitarian hate crime laws upon the American people. Hate crime laws do much more than undermine free speech however, for in that what one says is the result of what first takes place in the mind, hate crime laws are mind-control devices.
Hate crime laws are not just alien to Americaâ€™s traditional Christian-based worldview, but in violent opposition to it. They are part of a program of psycho political terrorism utilized by Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and the Bolsheviks after they seized control of Orthodox Christian Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast cultural scale every vestige of belief in the Biblical God, family, morality, private property, and other signs of “the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie.” By way of various sadistically brutal forms of behavior modification, torture, psychotropic drug experimentation, re-education, and psychological terror tactics, Russians were terrorized into submission while Bolsheviks systematically stole their property, confiscated and perverted their children, desecrated and blasphemed churches, crucified thousands of nuns and priests, and in general, committed monstrous crimes against humanity which took the lives of sixty-million men, women, and children. For example:
â€œAbout 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the countryâ€™s mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed. â€œClergymen were crucified on churchesâ€™ holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled,â€ said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. â€œI was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter,â€ Yakovlev said. â€œIt was total cruelty.â€ (http://www.paulbogdanor.com/left.html)
Former red-diaper baby David Horowitz observes that it is,
“not for nothing that George Orwell had to invent terms like ‘double-think’ and ‘double- speak’ to describe the universe totalitarians created.”
Though publicly they describe themselves as scientific, forward-thinking, enlightened, and progressive, they are in reality, notes Horowitz,
“…religious fanatics who regard their opponents as sinners and miscreants and agents of civil darkness…when they engage an opponent it is rarely to examine and refute his argument but rather to destroy the bearer of the argument and remove him from the plan of battle.” (The Surreal World of the Progressive Left, David Horowitz, FrontPageMagazine.com, 1/25/2008)
Over the course of the twentieth century, progressive religious fanatics—or in Dostoevsky’s words, devilish Gnostic irreligionists—murdered anywhere between 100,000,000-200,000,000 “sinners and miscreants and agents of civil darkness.”
Totalitarian Bolshevism can be understood as an umbrella under which shelters Marxist-socialism, Darwinian scientism, progressivism, positivist materialism, sex-positivism, rationalism, idealism, feminism, atheism, occultism, empiricism, relativism, and nihilism. These cancerous ideological ‘isms’ emerged mainly out of Enlightenment France and Germany, spawning both Marxist-socialism and Hitlerâ€™s National Socialism and today, continue to spread and secrete yet more toxic cells: heterosexism, normativism, sexism, and ageism, among others.
Whereas twentieth century’s Big Brother touted himself as positivist, materialist, atheist, and ‘red,’ today’s Big Brother is decidedly ‘green,’ says Steve Milloy in his book, “Green Hell.” Yesterdays’ â€˜isms’ have reshaped themselves into yet another apocalyptic, messianic, utopian- globalism, one that is blatantly spiritual and occult, pantheistic, politically correct, and in exclusive globalist salons, brazenly Luciferian.
“Without a doubt, President Obama is a true believer in the green cause. Viewing our current living standards as excessive and immoral, he’s determined to downsize our lifestyles—for the good of the planet…If the greens succeed, we will see their vision for our future implemented with staggering speed. By the time you finish this book you may well be appalled by that vision, but you may also find yourself in awe of the sheer totality of the green’s agenda and their single-minded determination to achieve it.” (Green Hell, Steve Milloy, pp. 6-7)
As Fyodor Dostoevsky astutely observed, Progressive religious fanaticism is at bottom, the creature in rebellion against the Creator, His creation, immutable truths, and moral absolutes. Hence it is rebellion against the very idea of normal, says David Horowitz:
“the enemy is no longer a ruling class, a hegemonic race or even a dominant gender. Instead it is the sexual order of nature itself. Oppression lies in the very idea of the â€œnormal,â€ the order that divides humanity into two sexes. Instead of a classless society as the redemptive future, queer theorists envisage a gender free world.” (quote from “Are Evangelical Churches Drifting Left?” Barbara Sowell, http://faultlineusa.blogspot.com/)
In sum, it is little ‘g’ godmen, their pride swollen to satanic proportions, usurping the throne of the Creator in order to correct His â€˜mistakes.â€™
From Karl Marx, who declared that he would â€œwalk triumphantly like a godâ€ through the ruins of the old Christian-based order to todayâ€™s â€˜eliteâ€™ insider transnational Progressive green-spiritual globalists, all have or are proclaiming their godhood, like Barbara Marx Hubbard for example:
â€œWe are immortalâ€¦We can create new life forms and new worlds. We are gods!â€ a revelation channeled from her spirit guide â€˜Christâ€™ to Barbara Marx Hubbard, influential transnational green Progressive, one of the directors of the World Future Society along with Robert McNamara and scholars from Georgetown University, George Washington University, and the University of Maryland. (False Dawn, Lee Penn, pp. 316, 326)
Fueled by satanic pride, Bakuninâ€”one of Karl Marxâ€™s partners in the First Internationalâ€”described the emancipation of man and destruction of the old order in these words:
â€œThe Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority, revolt in which we see the fecund germ of all human emancipations, the revolution. Socialists recognize each other by the words, â€œIn the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done.â€ Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds (he) emancipates (and) stamps upon his brow the seal of libertyâ€¦in urging (man) to disobey and eat of the fruit of knowledge. In this revolution we will have to awaken the Devil in the people, to stir up the basest passions. Our mission is to destroy, not to edify. The passion of destruction is a creative passion.â€
Considered by many to be the 19th centuryâ€™s greatest apocalyptic prophet, Fyodor Dostoevsky defined the conjoined â€˜ismsâ€™ and their ultimate program of the â€œdestruction of everythingâ€ as the politics of apocalypseâ€”in other words, the politics of catastrophic death and destruction. This is made clear by Karl Marx in his poem, Human Pride:
â€œWith disdain I will throw my gauntlet/ Full in the face of the world/ And see the collapse of this pygmy giant/ Whose fall will not stifle my ardour/ Then will I wander godlike and victorious/ Through the ruins of the world/ And, giving my words an active voice/ I will feel equal to the Creator.â€
In another piece Marx made his demonically-fueled hatred of the world and his death-wishing toward itsâ€™ people even more clear:
â€œA silent, unavoidable revolution is taking place in society, a revolution that cares as little about the human lives it destroys as an earthquake cares about the houses it ravages. Classes and races that are too weak to dominate the new conditions of existence will be defeated.â€ (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, p. 42)
During his commencement address at Harvard in the 1970s, Alexander Solzhenitsyn raised the alarm when he warned that America was already tilting towards evil. Americansâ€”specifically the ruling class and intelligentsiaâ€” have forgotten God said Solzhenitsyn, and embraced instead, scientistic-socialismâ€¦.the politics of destruction. America is on the same highway to hell taken previously by the Russians, warned Solzhenitsyn.
Also raising the alarm is Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Marxist-socialist Soviet Union. Sharansky describes the Soviet Union as a tyranny where,
â€œthere were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately.â€ Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other mind-control tactics, everyone became double thinkers. To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers: â€œeverybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion.â€ But it is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth. These people, he noted, â€œlive with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many donâ€™t even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves.â€ But when a â€œfear society disappears or becomes weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel,â€ Sharansky commented, and â€œItâ€™s such a big relief.â€
To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the â€œtown square test.â€ In this test, if you,
â€œcan go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free societyâ€ even though that society may not be just. However, if you are â€œpunished for your views you live in a fear society,â€ said Sharansky. â€œIn such societies there are always three types of population: True believers, who accept the ideologyâ€¦dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts or disagreements about the official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly.â€ In conclusion, Sharansky comments that the level â€œof dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is.â€ (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)
Measured by Sharanskys’ town-square test we can see that America is quickly descending into a fear-based society. As her freedom-producing Christian-based worldview fades while simultaneously replaced by green-progressive totalitarianism, the three types of population described by Sharansky come into focus. In general, Progressive Liberals are the true believers. Rabid zealots, brazen liars, rebels against all authority, they freely destroy, transgress, scoff, demean, blaspheme, demonize, and otherwise psychologically terrorize the large body of fearful double thinkers.
More than fifty years ago, Conservative poet and journalist Anthony Harrigan foresaw the rise of this generations’ destructive true believers. Observing that a ‘process of decay’ was being fostered by a modernist orthodoxy fueled by immorality, Harrigan presciently noted that:
“Modernists are determined to force acceptance of pornography as medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion…Though the life of the country is basically decent, Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class, having led to destruction the humane elements in our civilization, is conducting us to ruin.” For what cause? To raise up a revolutionary army of “liberal-bred” barbarians “motivated by a destructive impulse” and unchecked by “traditional values and restraints.” (The Conservative Intellectual Movement of America, George H. Nash, p. 40)
With the ‘cultural ruling class’ seen as The Ministry of Truth, Orwell describes the diabolical ‘process of decay’ fostered by them:
“There was a whole chain of…departments dealing with proletarian literature….Here was produced rubbishy newspapers, containing almost nothing except sport, crime, astrology, sensational five-cent novelettes, and films oozing with sex. The rubbishy entertainment and spurious news…was referred to as prolefeed.” (1984)
Protecting and fomenting the destruction of America is a vast matrix of interconnected front groups, activist organizations, and phony civil rights defenders such as the ACLU, the most infamous terroristic enforcer of politically correct â€˜true belief.â€™ (See matrix here: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/)
All around the outside edges are the dissidents, for example, the Conservative blog-o-sphere, Tea Partiers, Minutemen, political leaders like Jim DeMint and Randy Forbes, and a variety of Conservative organizations and civil rights defenders such as the Alliance Defense Fund.
Supremely immoral, reeking of perversity, a double-speaking transnational green-progressive leviathan is moving with crushing force across our nation, fostering obscenity and blasphemy, instilling fear and confusion into the hearts of Americans and stifling individual liberty while it perverts Americas’ youth, imposes mind-control and relentlessly destroys the spiritual foundations of Americaâ€™s traditional Christian-based order. Its’ devilish tactics come into focus in the following examples:
1. Cultural Marxism: the politics of rebellion, perversity, and nihilism fueled by satanic pride.
2. Multiculturalism: the insidious destruction of Americaâ€™s traditional culture by way of elevating all other cultures in the name of politically correct tolerance.
3. Political correctness, speech codes, and hate crime laws: a psychic-cage for the soul/mind of traditional-values Americans.
4. â€˜Gay rights/â€™gayâ€™ marriage: rebellion against the idea of normal.
5. Sex education: called â€™sex polâ€™ by Marxist-socialists, itâ€™s purpose is the subversion and perversion of our youth, the awakening of the Devil, as Bakunin said. (Read: The Gay- Straight Alliance and the Quiet Revolution, http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/The%20Gay%20Straight%20Alliance%20a nd%20the.html)
6. Social justice: the hammering down of everything good, everything excellent, everything normal, everything true into the perversely foul mud of demonic nothingness.
7. Critical theory: the mindless vomiting out of the acid of destructive criticism upon everything good, true, excellent, normal, and traditional.
8. Redistributive Justice: the evisceration of our standard of living and individual liberties in order to ‘save the planet’—in other words, death and slavery on behalf of Gaia.
9. Sustainability: Extreme population control and theft of private property to achieve the ‘new’ communism–communitarianism.
10. Religious Pluralism: the erasure of America’s founding Christian-based worldview by way of elevating Wicca, animism, Islam, New Age occult spirituality, Buddhism, shamanism, and atheism in the name of politically correct tolerance and diversity.
Death of Freedom
In an article entitled, “American Capitalism Gone with a Whimper,” author Stanislav Mishin notes that, “on and off for the past century,” Americans have been stealthily prepared to accept totalitarianism, and with the election of Barack Obama,
“It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the backdrop of a passive, hapless sheeple…”
“The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia,” notes Mishin, “and a bloody test it was.”
Who financed the bloody test? “Wall Street,” says Mishin.
In his book “The Naked Capitalist,” W. Cleon Skousen exposes the unholy alliance of bankers and capitalists collectively defined as “Wall Street” by Mishin. Skousen verifies his findings through the writings of Dr. Carroll Quigley, both a professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University and mentor to Bill Clinton. In his opus, “Tragedy and Hope,” Quigley deliberately reveals one of the worlds’ best kept secrets: the existence of a gigantic leviathan of political and economic power poised to seize control of the planet.
The gargantuan power complex says Quigley, has been–right from the start—controlling Marxist-Communist-Socialist groups,
“…the power that…Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or communist power but…the power of the international financial coterie.” (p. 954, Tragedy and Hope)
Why did Quigley expose the existence of the global financial coterie? Because he says, it is now too late for the little people to turn the tide. He urges them to not fight the noose which is already around their necks, for they will only hang themselves.
“On the other hand, those who go along with the immense pressure which is beginning to be felt by all humanity will eventually find themselves in a man-made millennium of peace and prosperity.” (The Naked Capitalist, Skousen, pp. 4-6) See funders here: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/guideDesc.asp?type=funder
‘Elite’ transnational progressive Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General of the UN and former Chancellor of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica speaks of the fate that will befall the politically incorrect:
“…all those who hold contrary beliefs” to politically correct thought favored for the “next phase of evolution” will “disappear.” A hellish fate awaits all who resist political and spiritual globalization, “..those who criticize the UN are anti-evolutionary, blind, self- serving people. Their souls will be parked in a special corral of the universe for having been retarding forces, true aberrations in the evolution and ascent of humanity.” (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 133)
In other words, the ‘chosen ones’ are evolving into gods and hell awaits all ‘selfish‘ ones who stand in the way! “….and you will be like God…” (Genesis 31-7)
The lessons learned from the Russian experiment says Mishin,
“were taken and used properly to prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.”
Among the lessons applied by The Ministry of Truth to Americans,
“First the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education…” then, said Mishin, “their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of (them) were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the ‘winning’ side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another.”
In conclusion Mishin writes,
“The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.” (American Capitalism Gone with a Whimper, Stanislav Mishin, Pravda.Ru)
Warnings from the Wise and the Valiant….
“… when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.” –Samuel Adams, Founding Father
“It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains.” – Patrick Henry, Founding Father
“Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all the blessings which flow from them, must fall with them.” – Samuel F.B. Morse, the son of educator Jedediah Morse, known as “Father of American Geography.”
“…the events of the Russian Revolution can only be understood now, at the end of the century…What emerges here is a process of universal significance. And if I were called upon to identify briefly the principal trait of the entire twentieth century…I would be unable to find anything more precise and pithy than to repeat once again: Men have forgotten God.” (Alexander Solzhenitsyn to Amerika: Godlessness, the First Step to the Gulag, from Russia with Love, Joe Clarke, Jul. 8, 2009)
…the Self-Sacrificially Courageous
“Death is more eligible than slavery. A free-born people are not required by the religion of Jesus Christ to submit to tyranny, but may make use of such power as God has given them to recover and support their liberties…” The men of Marlborough, Massachusetts who took part in the Boston Tea Party
