Why America is Changing
A few months ago I began to seriously ponder all the different changes that I observe going on in our great country. All our values are changing, our educational system is failing, our government is nosing into every corner of our lives, churches are losing members, and corruption is rampant. I needed to know why such things are happening. In light of all of this, I started on a search to find an answer. After months of searching and reading everything I could that might shed some light on the subject, I came up with an answer – Advanced Liberalism or Progressivism. Advanced Liberals are radical or extremes Liberals. It is important to note that all Americans are liberals to some degree but all liberals are not Americans for they do not share traditional American values. The group I call Advance Liberals do share traditional American values. In fact, they hold them in contempt.
These advanced Liberals are working hard to change and sterilize every nook and cranny of our culture. We are being told that we can no longer publically display our morals, traditions, and religion. If we do, we must keep them to ourselves and out of the public square. All we are allowed to have openly is advanced Liberalism with its sterile environment of secularism. If we speak of anything it must be “politically correct” which simply means it must square with secular Liberalism. This sterilization is proclaimed and justified in the name of pluralism or multiculturalism, which is one of the many illusions and utopian goals of Liberalism. In the end all that will remain is Liberalism and its values-free culture– if you can call what’s left a culture.
All I can do is smile when advanced Liberals tell me that they love diversity. The only diversity that these Liberals love is the diversity that will fit into the square hole of their advanced Liberalism. Don’t let Liberals or progressives kid you; they do not like traditional morals, values nor do they like religion. They don’t even like freedom for those that disagree with them. In fact, many of them have a bad case of moral and religious phobia. It seems that the only religion or morality they can tolerate is a one that reflects the dogma of their advanced Liberalism, which is a morality or religion that accepts and allows everything and believes nothing. If your morality or religion doesn’t measure up to their standard of “everything goes,” they start their name-calling: fundamentalist, bigot, homophobic, and other misleading, emotion-packed labels.
I often have asked advanced liberal people what they mean by fundamentalist. I have yet to get an intelligent answer from them, and yet they seem to be using it as a curse word. Seeing that they don’t know the meaning of the word, I must assume that to them, it must mean “people who don’t think as they do, people with conviction, people who still believe in the truth of their traditional beliefs.” Actually when people start calling others fundamentalists, they are often fundamentalists themselves – just a different kind.
What can we do to stop this wholesale destruction of our religions, traditions, morality and culture? First of all, we need to wake up to what has been going on in this country for years, that is to say, the manipulation of our culture by “humanistic Liberals” through government central planning and the school system. Next, we need to know the enemy and the methods being used to undermine our Constitution, our cultural heritage and our fundamental liberties.
If we do nothing, our country will soon look more and more like Europe – socialistic and atheistic. By the way, advanced Liberalism is the foundational philosophy for both socialism and communism. It is also the avant-garde of atheism. Advanced liberals know that for their brand of Liberalism to take over, it must destroy or marginalize our families, religious faith and moral traditions. Don’t let this happen!
Let me recommend a couple of books that will help you understand and counter the anti-religious and anti-faith philosophy of Liberalism. The Tyranny of Liberalism by James Kalb and Against Liberalism by John Kekes, both are very enlightening. LD
