The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.
Nations are like tents. There are small ones. There are large ones. There are tents that are great, and others that are weak and feeble. But, one thing that is certain, all tents are temporary. They usually rot from within. A tent can take so much decomposition and then it collapses.
Our tent is 243 years old, relatively young considering nations like Egypt or Greece or even human history. But, as youth sometimes can be, nations can become complacent and thoughtless, and forget or ignore their heritage. Our country took a turn some time back and it has now become evident that the price may very well be collapse.
The Collapse of Western Civilization
Paul Joseph Watson
The USA was set up as a republic, appears to believe and to act as though we are a democracy, and here is aquote:
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.
From: Alexander Fraser Tytler
If history really is a barometer of the future, which I believe it is, this fact is nothing new.
I would imagine that many of the citizens of the now defunct great civilizations of the past believed their’s would last forever.
The rise and fall of ...., is as predictable as birth to death of the individual.
.... not really.
As long as it’s legal to murder children and conduct counterfeit marriage, and God banished, yes it will be collapsing.
No, but your blog has Syphilis.
I’ve said this before and I still think we may see this trend develop in the West.
The Leftist/Progressive adopts/Converts to Islam.
They are natural allies on many levels.
Both reject Truth and Science.
Both seek to destroy Apostates and retain adherents through terror.
Both are totalitarian.
Both advance their ideology through victimhood.
The Left is desperate for something Sacred to coalesce their followers.
Islam needs a political foothold in the West.
If Islam were to relax their LGBT stance and adopt an environmental Justice stance, the conversion of the Left will be assured.
If the citizens of the United States keep on keepin’ on like they have been for quite a few years. . .we could be in for the wrath of God in a mighty way sooner rather than later. If you have read about it in the Bible then you know it is not a pretty thing.
i’d say we are somewhere between apathy and dependance (closer to dependance)
There are a number of reason for the decline of the West.
The loss of God would be at the top of the list.
Our Governments attempt to replace the Family with the State.
Our Governments attempt to remove any and all potential crisis from peoples lives.
The corruption of Science for an Ideology of Uncertainty.
If God doesn’t exist, neither does Satan. This has been the aim of the their efforts.
The Long War against God
This appears to be an accurate assessment.
My expectation and hope is the factions under the dem tent will fracture soon. The in-fighting will get worse. They’ve started on Jews, elevated muslims who hate LGBTs and so on. I don’t think they can keep it together.
“If Islam were to relax their LGBT stance and adopt an environmental Justice stance, the conversion of the Left will be assured.”
Many are actually joining the Roman Catholic system, or - as in the case of most persons of latin or hispanic background - it is their cultural heritage.
The Roman Catholic church is both a church and a state. Vatican City is a country.
Here is something you may find of interest for your research.
Here also is a video comparing Islam with Mormonism. The content creator makes too many matches for comport.
Satan, represented here as a plastic child’s toy, has forgotten to purchase a birthday gift for another god.
“A Latter-Day Re-Gift”
Freedom isn’t Free—Americans have gotten fat and lazy. We have been killed by our successes. We thought problems could be solved by throwing money at them. It only leads to corruption.
You beat me to it. Thank you.
The cycle is inevitable, and irreversible. Why? Because of man’s sin nature - which is only dealt with through salvation by the Lord Jesus Christ......with the sad caveat that most Christians continue to live like unbelievers, and their outward lives cannot be distinguished from those of unbelievers........and most church’s are the small kingdoms of little men who have the same spirit of Diotrephes..........
” . . . the same spirit of Diotrephes..........”
3 John. You apprehend my attention, sir.
Here is a sermon from the 80s on the subject.
The speaker is Pastor Win Worley, Hegewisch Baptist Church,
Highland Indiana. Perhaps you may find it of interest.
