What we are seeing today is the result of decades of de-moral-ization in this country, which then led to destablization, then crisis, and now puts us on the threshold of a totalitarian government…Communist/Stalinist Normalization.
It is time to turn back, but not just for fiscal conservatives…it is time for social conservatives to turn back this country to its true, Judeo-Christian heritage.
Tocqueville taught us long ago the lesson we are about to re-learn, namely that a society where the moral tie is weakened and where no one accepts responsibilities and consequences for their actions will quickly morph into an authoritarian, State-centered society.
Weakening the moral tie is called demoralization, and it is
phase 1 of 4 on the path from Capitalism to Stalinism.
Democratic President Harry S. Truman said something very similar:
The most important business in this Nation–or any other nation, for that matter-is raising and training children. If those children have the proper environment at home, and educationally, very, very few of them ever turn out wrong. I don’t think we put enough stress on the necessity of implanting in the child’s mind the moral code under which we live.
The fundamental basis of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don’t think we emphasize that enough these days.
If we don’t have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.
And a great Republican said:
The American experiment in democracy rests on this insight. Its discovery was the great triumph of our Founding Fathers, voiced by William Penn when he said:
“If we will not be governed by God, we must be governed by tyrants.“
Explaining the inalienable rights of men, Jefferson said,
“The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.“
And it was George Washington who said that
“of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.“
And finally, that shrewdest of all observers of American democracy, Alexis de Tocqueville, put it eloquently after he had gone on a search for the secret of America’s greatness and genius — and he said:
“Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the greatness and the genius of America. America is good. And if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.“
There is sin and evil in the world, and we’re enjoined by Scripture and the Lord Jesus to oppose it with all our might.
I pointed out that, as good Marxist-Leninists, the Soviet leaders have openly and publicly declared that the only morality they recognize is that which will further their cause, which is world revolution. I think I should point out I was only quoting Lenin, their guiding spirit, who said in 1920 that they repudiate all morality that proceeds from supernatural ideas — that’s their name for religion — or ideas that are outside class conceptions. Morality is entirely subordinate to the interests of class war. And everything is moral that is necessary for the annihilation of the old, exploiting social order and for uniting the proletariat.
Well, I think the refusal of many influential people to accept this elementary fact of Soviet doctrine illustrates a historical reluctance to see totalitarian powers for what they are. We saw this phenomenon in the 1930s. We see it too often today.
Yes, let us pray for the salvation of all of those who live in that totalitarian darkness. Pray they will discover the joy of knowing God. But until they do, let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the State, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.
Who said that?
Was it former pastor Mike Huckabee?
No, it was former President Ronald Reagan.
Go re-read Reagan’s speech.
It’s never been more relevant than right now.
