Have We Learned Anything at All?

The Ethics of Globalism, Nationalism, and Patriotism – Brewminate

One of my greatest fears concerning the coronavirus crisis is that we, as a nation, won’t learn a blessed thing from the experience. I fear we’ll return to our follies, picking up right where we left off. God forbid.

Are we so stupid, so wooden-headed, as to go straight back to globalism, out-sourcing our manufacturing, trusting China, trusting the United Nations, and here at home inventing new “genders,” hyper-urbanization (a la Agenda 21), Drag Queen Story Hour, playing footsie with socialism, and pushing such wicked, republic-destroying follies as vote-by-mail, prosecuting Climate Change denial, and allowing the Deep State to run amok? I might say more, but this list is long enough already.

Have we missed the point of so many gaudy displays of tyrannical overreach by mayors and governors and city councils, have we failed to understand that now that they’ve had a taste of it, they’ll be hungry for more? They keep talking about “a new normal.” God defend us from whatever they conceive as “normal”!

I pray in Jesus’ name that America–and other countries, too–will come out of this trial better and wiser than we were, going in. Amen.

Are We Too Stupid to Learn Anything?

China Mannequin Head, Wooden Handicraft, Display Props, Abstract ...

I’ve begun to fear that America and the rest of the West will learn absolutely nothing from the worldwide coronavirus disaster (unleashed on us by China): that people are either so committed to wicked and insane ideologies, or else just so damned stupid, that their heads might as well be made of wood.

You’d think even the most limited intellect would be able to grasp the concept that hyper-urbanization, jamming people into cities as densely as you can and packing them into mass transit every day, is just asking for another pandemic to mow them down; and you’d think even a Democrat could understand that “open borders” is a potentially suicidal policy.

But I have this creepy, crawly feeling that instead of learning anything, the West’s big shots and opinion-shapers will double down on all the absurd, asinine, and wicked errors that landed us in this mess.

They’ll give us more transgender, more gay rights, more globalism, more socialism, more tyranny, more “diversity,” more Climate Change, more Greta, more Soros–more of everything bad, everything that’s crazy, everything that’s damned. They are either that stupid, that evil, or actually cursed by God. Cursed for the things they did, and allowed to be done, in that horrible 20th century.

What can we do but pray? And speak the truth? And you can already get in trouble for doing those things. But I’m afraid we have to.

Sliding Over the Cliff

See the source image

There are three deadly delusions pushing our civilization toward a precipice. The pushers don’t care if it goes off the cliff: they want to put their own ideal world where the real one used to be. They know they can’t–unless they first get rid of everything that’s already there.

So we have three major movements, all of them totally irrational, all of them tirelessly pushed and promoted by persons–most of them already politically powerful, and wealthy–who want to own the new utopia: with whoever’s left alive as their sharecroppers.

The transgender movement; climate change hysteria, with its draconian fantastic “remedies” (think Green New Deal); and to round it out, the globalists’ dream of open borders (you need to import chaos to make more chaos). Three apocalyptic horsemen all lined up to knock over what it took centuries and even millenia to build. If you’re looking for a fourth horseman, there are more candidates than I have space to list. He will emerge from that pool of swirling darkness.

The pushers don’t much like a world that they don’t rule, lock, stock, and barrel. They want one in which they are supreme, with any challenge to their authority rendered strictly impossible.

They want to be as gods. They think they’re gods already. But they’re nothing but the devil’s sock puppets, and too puffed-up to know it. They think it’s their plan that they’re working for, their future, their every dream come true. Wait’ll they find out it isn’t.

At some point in history, Almighty God will put a stop to this.

Hang on and be faithful, till then.

Greta Thunberg… making demands

Greta Thunberg is deluded, and at some point a lot of people are going to have to answer for their part in deluding her.

Telling people to panic is nonsense. Everyone should know that. Panic is the enemy of a clear mind. When you panic, you lose control of the situation. Even if climate change is caused by mankind, and even if it can be fixed by mankind, it certainly can’t be fixed all in a minute.

If you are a Thunberg-ite, are you really willing to undergo the radical changes that she is putting forward? Are you willing to walk or bike to work, no matter how far away it is? Or maybe drive a horse-drawn carriage. Are you willing to give up your hair products, beauty products, smart phones, and computers?

If you want to visit another country, are you going to go there under wind power, taking weeks to get to a place you could have reached in a day or two by airplane? Or what if your grandmother is dying, and the only way to get to her before she passes is by airplane and there you are, galloping madly on a horse?

Greta Thunberg doesn’t know what she’s talking about, and the people who control her are abusing her by keeping her, and so many other children, in a constant state of panic, anger, and frustration.

When I was her age, my political activity was confined to making comments on news articles expressing my views. Greta is still a child. She’s sixteen years old. She should indeed be in school, not traipsing around the world telling everyone else what to do. And her parents should be utterly ashamed of themselves for feeding her tendency to obsess over things, instead of trying to help her. Add to that the fact that, as a teenager, she is in the middle of a whirlwind of hormones, and it is no wonder that she is so miserable and hopeless.

Clearly this poor girl has never been told about the true hope found in Christ. In her despair and anger we see a perfect picture of what is is like to be raised with zero religious foundation. Mankind is the be-all and end-all. We live and die by our own power. Our world rises or falls because of us. What if someone took her aside and said, “Greta, let me tell you about God”? If handled correctly, can you imagine the feeling she would get as she realized, for the first time in her life, that there is hope? That even if the world is falling to pieces, there is a rock to cling to?

I’d love to see that happen. Greta Thunberg, and all children like her, who grow up in a world devoid of God, have been robbed and deluded. They are so deluded that they are in a state of panic, and they are trying to panic everyone else over many issues which they do not understand, and of which they cannot see the consequences of implementing: gun control, climate change policies, economic policies.

I hope and pray that they will be shown the light of truth, because walking in the dark is frightening. Jesus says to allow the little children to come to Him, but there are people forbidding them to come to Him, to taste the sweetness of love and joy and freedom from fear.

Shame on the people who make a profit from panicked, angry children, and shame on the people who created that mindset in the first place. It would be better if a millstone were tied around their necks and they were cast into the sea.

Pray for intervention by the Holy Spirit–and the sooner, the better.   –LD

 

 

 

 

Little Greta Wants It Done ‘Right Now!’

Image result for images of angry greta thunberg

“We demand!”

Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, anointed Far Left Scold of All the World, thinks it’s taking Western civilization much too long to cut itself off from fossil fuels.

“We want this done now–as in right now!” she says (https://www.dailywire.com/news/greta-snaps-over-demands-we-want-this-done-now-as-in-right-now).

What is it that she wants us all to do “right now”?

Completely cut ourselves off from all fossil fuels. Cold turkey. And while we’re at it, totally re-engineer all our social institutions–overnight, if possible. Especially capitalism. Gotta get rid of that. “We demand,” seems to have become her favorite turn of phrase.

Who’s “we”? Don’t ask.

Hmm… If the world actually tried to do what Greta demands, it’s questionable whether anyone at all would survive the havoc that it wreaked. But I guess when you take a mentally ill teenager and suddenly exalt her to a level far above even the freakin’ pope’s, you have to expect it to go to her head a bit.

But if you’re a Far Left wacko, there’s nothing that beats having a child run interference for you. Anyone who criticizes Greta the Scold is just such a meanie!

Get hip to this, though: the world is full of rich, powerful wackos whose totally irrational policies, if followed, would plunge the human race into untold suffering.

And they don’t care. In fact, it’s what floats their boat.

‘Wall Street Journal Says “Erase America”‘ (2012)

See the source image

They keep telling me the editorial writers at The Wall Street Journal are “conservatives,” but it beats the dickens out of me to try to figure out what they’re conserving.

Wall Street Journal Says ‘Erase America’

Does it really need to be explained, that “open borders” is a terrible idea, and that any attempt to actually put it into practice would be fatal to our country?

What business do idiots like that have, publishing a magazine?

My Newswithviews Column, Nov. 7 (‘The March of Lunacy’)

Is there a state that’s short a governor?

I keep asking myself how long this crazy stuff can go on; and I don’t know the answer.

The March of Lunacy

Why do we have a “transgender” movement? Was there some kind of demand for it? Really? Why do you get kicked out of your job for saying only women can give birth to babies?

Why does the government tell you how many points your high school football team’s allowed to score? Why does the governor of New York insist there were no hurricanes until we came along with our SUVs and created Climate Change?

Who thinks it’s a good idea to keep the crazies in the driver’s seat?

Are Dems Delusional?

See the source image

I’m still trying to figure out why Democrats have stopped pretending to be normal people. Do they know something the rest of us don’t know? Or are they simply delusional–as they were, going into Election Day, 2016?

How in the world do you campaign on their issues and expect to get elected? I mean, really, who’s going to vote for this stuff?

*We’re gonna repeal the tax cuts and raise your taxes!

*If you think Obamacare was bad, wait’ll you see “Medicare for All”!

*We are gonna open our borders wide, wide, wide, and anyone who wants to can come on in and get free stuff–plus an easy path to citizenship, so they can vote for the people who give them free stuff!

*We’re gonna go crawling back to the U.N. and beg them to let us back into their Climate Change treaties, we promise to trash our economy if that’s what makes them happy!

*We’re gonna throw you in jail if you refuse to believe in Climate Change, we’re gonna confiscate your guns, we’re gonna pressure your churches to do gay marriage…

This is what they’re selling–and who do they think is buying? Are there really all that many Far Left Crazies on the voter rolls? ‘Cause only Venezuela wannabes, which I guess is what the Democrats have become, are going to support these loony policies. That’s 19 or 20 percent of the vote, at most. For the remaining 30 percent, they’ll have to count on the bone-ignorant, illegals, fictitious voters, multiple voters–and the rest of their usual bag of tricks.

Anyway, they’re acting like they think you want their fun-pack–and why in the world are they thinking that?

We really do need to know the answer to that question.

‘The Next Phase of History’

Image result for images of titanic sinking

In light of some of the totally daft public policies and cultural spasms we’ve been reading about this week, we might well ask, “What is the next phase of history?”

https://chalcedon.edu/blog/the-next-phase-of-history

Mark Rushdoony has a thoughtful essay–and in it, I think, he’s dug his way down to the heart of the matter.

Humanism, now embracing and promoting such total irrationalities as “transgender” and “open borders,” while at the same time proclaiming the imminent end of the world unless we all do exactly as they tell us–humanism has embraced its own destruction.

Because, as Mark says, reality is real and cannot be pushed aside by any amount of wishful thinking.

And it will devour those irrationalities.

What will replace humanism? We pray it will be a new growth in God’s Kingdom on the earth–which we can already see happening in such unlikely places as China and Iran.

I look forward to the day when “gender fluid” will be of interest only to cryptozoologists.

I’m Running for President!

9

Move over, purple penguins! Now that some of the real lightweights have dropped out, it’s time for me to join the Democrat presidential nomination sweepstakes.

And here’s my first campaign promise, right up front. If I’m elected president, I guarantee that there will be no sharks swimming around in our department stores! No other candidate has made that promise because no other candidate can. With me in the White House, it will be perfectly safe to use the escalator in Barnes & Noble.

I also promise that the very least I would do, if you elect me president, would be… well, nothing. C’mon, now, people, which would be better? Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders or Kamala Harris–or a president who does, like, nothing? Fumbling, stupid, crazy policies, or no policies? Imagine a president with the good sense to leave the country alone. That would be me!

Now, you know they won’t let me take part in any of those “debates” they have. You saw how they all piled onto Marianne Williamson for coming out of political nowhere and still looking better than the rest of them. “I didn’t know they could be so mean!” she’s saying now. Hey, sister, I coulda toldja. “I didn’t know they lied so much!” Coulda toldja that, too.

So, then, help me build up my campaign war chest by buying my books. Books? What books? You have books? You’re darn tootin’ I do. Just go to this blog’s home page and click “Books,” and find out all about it. You can even order them from there.

Vote for me, Lee Duigon, in all your Democrat primaries!

Because doing nothing is better than doing evil.
