One line could sufficiently describe the decline and fall of America and Western civilization by quoting the influential famed occultist/Satanist Aleister Crowley (1875-1947), who wrote in Book of the Law "Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be The Whole Of The Law!" But it goes much deeper to expand upon Friedrich Nietzsche's declaration that "God is dead" in Thus Spake Zarathustra (1883), and how such demagogues have successfully achieved most of their agenda. All the laws in the world, all the constitutions that have ever existed, will not save a nation that has permitted itself to become culturally and socially demoralized and destabilized to the point of crisis; constitutions have to be written on hearts, not just paper.
The Iran Deal was almost certainly designed by Moscow and Tehran to extort the U.S. and NATO allies under threat of world war while empowering the member nations of BRICS (Russia, China, Brazil, India and South Africa) to facilitate both its expansion into Central Asia as well as Iran's potential membership, which by proxy would include its chain of vassal states (Syria, Lebanon and Yemen).
For Marxist professors like Jason Barker attempting to rehabilitate the legacy of Karl Marx, deconstructing the ‘eternal truths’ of our age’ born of its ruling class “is fundamental to true revolutionary progress” should cultural Marxism successfully destroy one’s ability to engage in open dialogue through “enlightened or rational thinking… since the norms of thinking are already skewed… even down to the language we use.” Only a well-educated, virtuous and independent citizenry can defeat or become immune from the malevolent forces that rule our world, and that can only be achieved by restoring ‘semantical correctness’ through initiating the graduated reversion of the English language to its original meanings through a national consensus to organically negate the impact in totality political correctness has had on traditional moral values and behavior.
As Joseph Stalin once noted, “Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.” The politically correct end likewise for Democrats and the globalist elites is to reconstruct a brave new world where “all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so,” be it through “war without bloodshed” or “politics with bloodshed”. Other prominent leftists like Russell and Margaret Sanger rejected traditional Judeo-Christian checks on human sexuality stunting the spread of scientism and secular humanism that reinforce Aryan supremacy as with National Socialism, or though those who otherwise fell under the Marxist-Leninist umbrella of “Scientific racism... an equal opportunity discriminator.” After all, anyone alive with a “defective gene pool” or resistant to 'correct political views' can fall prey to those profiting off 'blood money'. After all, Planned Parenthood — as “self-consciously organized” by its founder, Sanger — was designed “in part, to promote and enforce White Supremacy” by packaging feminism as the great liberator for women oppressed by all “Marriage laws... a continuous sexual slavery and a compulsory motherhood… dictated and dominated by the Church always and ever upon the unquestionable grounds of the wisdom of the Bible”. Such a 'somewhat unpleasant' slippery slope acknowledged by Russell would never apply to racial and political “thoroughbreds” like Hitler, Russell and Sanger tabbed to preside over a “Population Congress” under the United Nations — for they, as “Really high minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people’s.” Targeted specifically would be 'True Christianity' — what Jean-Jacques Rousseau defined to be the Christianity of the Gospels — and Judaism, in light of the return of the Jews to the Holy Land of Israel. And the scientists perfecting 'technique' to attack both, according to Russell, "will be rigidly confined to the governing class." Without such secrecy reinforcing this massive foundation of ignorance necessary for driving the left-wing globalist elite, how else could billions be brainwashed "produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable”? It is here where history, coupled with resurrecting the organic and true nature behind the development of Anglo-American semantics through lexicology that could launch a third Great Awakening of the nation's Judeo-Christian principles in today's godless postmodern America.
No doubt the historical record will again be revised to cast blame on one group or the other, but not the responsible actor. As Winston Churchill noted, "History is written by the winners." Like of Yugoslav giants of lore such as Chetnik general Draža Mihailović, communist dictator Josef Broz Tito and Serbian genocidal warlord Slobodan Milošević who have risen and fallen, the 140 year old warning by Bismarck of 'some damn foolish thing in the Balkans' will continue prompting winners — a new 'Black Hand' serving as 'the executioner of his own people' who will 'set the whole thing off in the Balkans' — to to add new chapters into European history textbooks littering future homecomings through blood and soil in Sarajevo.
Nearly 20 years into the 21st Century, the children of the flower and surviving acolytes of Saul Alinsky, the Black Panther Party and Weather Underground dominate the American government and political infrastructures and universities. Emerging like angels of light blinding the world via sublimation using 'flower power', 'peace, not war', Vietnam war protests, the 'Summer of Love' and Woodstock, many from the 'baby boom' generation are now dying off due to natural causes. But the damage of 'the dawn', so irreparable, is done. Its aftermath continues yielding far louder sunsets prior to full darkness each day. Pope Francis, a closet liberation theologian since 'the dawn of Aquarius', frightens both Catholics and polemics alike fearful of global agendas and moral relativity. With the push to force the Roman Catholic Church to accept women into the priesthood, the idea that should Hillary Clinton — who openly announced her desire to become a preacher following her election loss to Donald Trump in November 2016 — could then choose to convert from Methodism to Roman Catholicism and enter the ministry only convinces me that the Vatican, already under the influence of an apostate false prophet, could one day play host to her as the pope to a global religion — and she, a child from 'the dawn' of the 'Age of Aquarius', would be revealed as "Babylon the Great the Mother of Prostitutes, and of the Abominations of the Earth".
While belief in the Shroud is not obligatory for Christians, the Shroud 'almost' reminds one (as it does Massaro) of "a certain Jesus of Nazareth, who challenged our certainties by loving his persecutors, forgiving them from the cross, and conquering death, 2,000 years ago." Most importantly, the path to Truth is found in Christ alone, not some shroud. Whether this shroud was wrapped around his body remains a mystery. It has, however, become a powerful idol reminiscent of what Paul the Apostle condemns in Romans 1:21-25.
