The legacy of Mao’s Great Leap Forward is lying, cheating, pretending, slipshod procedures and shabby workmanship–and the government knows no problem that a little creative violence won’t solve. It’s long past time this evil regime passed away: surely the Chinese people deserve much better than what they’ve got.
But we were so happy when Nixon and Kissinger opened our doors to Red China!
We have no shortage of “Christian thinkers” and seminary wallahs who are uncomfortable with the idea of Hell and have excluded it from their teaching. R.J. Rushdoony looked into this in 1983.
“When hell disappears from religion,” he wrote, “it re-appears in politics and social morality. It becomes necessary then for ultimate moral judgments and dispositions to be made on earth, because there is no other court for a final reckoning.” [From Salvation and Godly Rule: quoted by Martin Selbrede in “Politics and the Madness in Men’s Hearts, Arise & Build, Nov. 2019]
Could he have been any more in the exact center of the bullseye than that?
The thing is, we can’t provide ultimate moral judgments. How could any earthly power punish Mao Tse-tung for his mass murder of tens of millions of people? And why would we even trust a power which with one hand offers us salvation and with the other, barbed wire and mass graves?
The fear of God is not only the beginning of wisdom. It is the very substance of wisdom. To know that God will judge us for our acts, to know it and not doubt, is knowledge to preserve the human race from being devoured by its earthly rulers.
That point made by Theodore Dalrymple–that the purpose of communist “teaching” is humiliation of the one who receives it, and then must parrot shameful inanities which he knows to be untrue–is golden. People who’ve been humiliated find it hard to stand up to tyranny.
Let me say this (in love, I hope): for a Christian to send himself or his offspring to any one of most of our “universities” to acquire what they cynically call an education is a very foolish thing to do.
What you’ll acquire there–if you acquire anything at all, and are not left merely empty-handed–is an education into an alien and false religion–and a thumping great bill for it, too.
They only do this because they’re hostile to the Christian faith and do everything in their power to get you to abandon it.
Ask these “educators” what they themselves worship, and you’ll never get an answer that makes any sense. An honest answer, if they were ever capable of honesty, would be, “Why, we worship our glorious and wonderful selves!” Which is too ridiculous even for them to say out loud, and so what they do is bow down to idols–Science, the state, and their “progressive” political ideology–which are extensions of themselves.
They also appear to worship something that may be personified as a Goddess of Failure. Libs ‘n’ progs aren’t interested in any public policy unless it promises a bumper crop of waste, shame, and futility–the more, the better. If they could find a system offering any more abject failure and cruelty than communism, they wouldn’t be Marxists anymore.
Hey, it’s your time, your money: your mind, your character, your soul. No one can stop you from pitching it all into a tar-pit.
If thares one thing i has learnt hear in collidge, being a interllectural, i has learnt that Comuneism it reely works!
Yiu want prufe? Wel hear is some prufe–Pressadint Obamma, He says it works! Thats al the prufe I need!
But thare is more prufe too. Frinstants, why yiu think al them Chess champoins they was from the Sovite Union in Russha? Yiu got to be super-Smart to be good at Chess. I plaid Chess once and it was reely hard! But the Sovites thay had one champoin after anather!Popoff, Nockoff, and Sodoff, and aslo Pratsky and Platsky and Sopavich and aslo that other guy hoose name i cant spel. Thay was all Worrld Champoins of Chess and that was becose of Comuneism, it reely works!
Now yiu ask Why, how come Comuneism it works so good? Its becose the Comuneistes thay got rid of Religin, expesialy them christins. But than wehn thay let christins come back it al went bad in Russha and that lost thare Comuneism becose of stopid religin and now it dont work anyymore.

And yuo wil see when we got Comuneism hear in Ammerica that it wil work jist Grate and thare wil be free Collidge Tution for evryone but them stopid christins.
Hi, I’m your guest blogger today and you can have that other guy back as soon as he can untie himself.
My name is Egbert Bolgani, and I have been here at B.S.U. for six years and Im working on my degree in Socal Justice & Equality Studies. My dad he says I better get it soon or he will have to sell the house, lol. But in the meantime I have learnt how to be an intellectural.
Its hard to do at first, kind of like learning how to go up stairs on a pogo stick, but once you’ve got the hang of it you can just keep on being an intellectural. All you really got to do is believe whatever the prefessors they tell you to believe, and when they ask you a question, you just tell them something they already told you.
You have to learn all these things you got to say, and when you got to say them, and how to say them the right way incase there is a news crew watching. You can practice in front of a mirror. Just say “Only good, hard communism can save the planet from man-made Climate Change” over and over again until you get it right and you can say it on camera.
A intellectural is not allowed to go to church unless its one of them churches where they do gay weddings and dress up like animals, and your not supposed to believe in God. Every night at our dorm we bow down and kiss the floor in front of a little statue of Presdent Obamma, with that nice big grin of his. Then we apolergize for not being gay. Our dorm commissar says we do it real good by now. We also have to apolergize for being white.
Now that I am an intellectural, I just got to stick around here till I get my degree, and then stay for grad school, and then get my PHD, and then I can get a job in some collidge somewhere teaching more students how they can be intellecturals too. My prefessers say a country can’t never have too many intellecturals. He has a autograph picture of John Kerry in his wallet wich he takes out and kisses when he thinks no one is looking. I offered to trade him two Hilry Clintons for it but he said no deal and he also knocked me down a grade, too.
In closing, that other guy is getting out of the ropes and he looks pretty mad, so I guess I’ll go now. See you in collidge! Bye.
