You've touched on many issues which have a bearing on the problems we face todays, as societies
but as you say, our strength (regardless of which society we're a member of) has always been the family. And then it moves up to our larger family
-- the neighbourhood. And from there, we used to strengthen our community via involvement in yet a larger 'family' -- that of our suburb, town,
city, State, Nation. Our involvement carried through. Our sense of family carried through.
Call them NWO or Illuminati or as I do, the Usual Suspects -- those who planned 50 years ago what we're experiencing today -- those who planned a
Zionist state before WW1 had occurred, before WW2, and who achieved their objectives via these destructive conflicts. And who right now are planning
events which will impact on your children and grandchildren.
Destruction of the family is the destruction of society's roots. That's why 'family' has been targeted, is targeted.
Values learned around the dinner table used to carry through into the street, the city, the nation.
Destroy the family unit, separate the parents, make divorce easy -- introduce destructive elements within the family such as porn, subliminals in
tv, advertising, movies and sex, sex, sex, greed, consumerism, materialism, lack of respect, foul language and blasphemism in tv, movies, books, push
up prices so that no one wage can match them and foster attitudes of entitlement, add drugs, alcohol
--- and you have what we see today: single
mothers and fathers, hopelessness, depression, sense of failure, guilt and kids suffering exactly the same emotions by the time they're five years
The adults use substances to try to chase away the overwhelming depression and kids retreat into fantasy, into online games, into 'saviour'
scenarios involving 'aliens' who'll come like Superman and Santa Claus to 'fix it all up', etc. Then they 'graduate' to drugs, alcohol, etc.
And on it goes.
Once, Dad went to work. Often it wasn't fancy work -- but he took pride in supporting his family. He didn't waste too much time fantasising about
silicone-boobed 'celebritites', he didn't mourn the fact he hadn't become a 'big pop star' .. and he lived within his means and impressed the
wisdom of doing so upon his family. People were encouraged to save for a rainy day, to lend a hand to those who needed it, to respect their elders,
to respect themselves
, to pride themselves on their honesty, reliability, dependability, sense of responsibility, co-operation. Those were
words teachers used in report-cards when they wanted to praise a future asset to society.
The United States has been hit hither and thither almost since its conception. It's planned destruction has been ongoing from the outset. The mobs
were there from the outset. The swindlers were there, the whores and pimps, the traders in lives, the poisoners, the liars, the seekers of power.
But the US held together because of family-values. Sounds corny, but it's true. And the Usual Suspects knew that, they've always known it. Which
is why 'family' has been the main target.
If you want to find the major degraders of US (and other) society, look at the influence of movies, tv, computer. These, more than any other single
element, created the rot at the root of American society. These are what bred envy, greed, materialism, ridiculous sense of entitlement,
dissatisfaction. And these --- envy, greed, materialism, sense of entitlement and dissatisfaction --- are what lie behind the break-up of marriages,
the rifts between children and their parents, between generations, etc. They're what created the 'Me' attitudes, rather than 'We'.
At first, movies, tv, computers, were hailed as beneficial to society, and so they can be. At first, the 'educational' benefits were touted .. and
it was true, they are great tools.
However, look at the uses to which movies, tv and computers were put by those who ALWAYS intended them as tools of destruction: pornography,
propaganda, advertising, mind-control, blatant lies (about history, world events, anthropology, archaeology) etc. These mediums are used to 'form
and shape' opinions within the shell of empty 'entertainment. And they do.
Society became 'visually orientated' rather than thinkers. Society was programmed through movies, tv, computers, to LOOK .. often to simply stare
vacantly. You see it all around -- people LOOKING, blankly. They LOOK at each other, at anything colourful, at anything that moves. People expect
life to entertain them. Life has become one big screen.
Once upon a time, 'staring' was considered ill-mannered. Now, it's normal.
has replaced thinking and doing.
People's minds have themselves become 'screens'. And it's exploited, of course it is. This is the 'harvest' of all that planning and
Can the US (and other nations) be put back together again ? Sad to say, the only way to do so, most probably -- is for society to be destroyed right
back to the roots -- for all the screens to be destroyed in a world-changing catastrophe. That's what it will take -- for men and women to be thrown
on their own resources and forced to struggle to put a bit of food in their offsprings' mouths -- for family to be clung-to, protected, valued more
than anything else, because without it there is no survival. And then again the rebuilding of what was .. families joining to become groups, then
small communities, then towns, then a nation.
The cure will hurt. People won't seek the cure. It will have to be forced upon them in most instances.
