Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2019-181: Plow vs Crown: “How You Gonna Keep Them Down on the Farm?”, part 2 of 2

The new United States rejected the European model.  They were aware they were doing it.  They wanted a place where people could follow their dreams and live up to their potential without requiring permission from the king and his minions.  They did away with hereditary privilege.  That leaves not place for an anointed class with built in wisdom.  The Progressives under any name be it Democrat, Republican, Socialist, Communist, Liberal, to name a few, want their power back.  They are jealous of their ancestors.

To do that they have to destroy the American dream and replace it with the historic class structure of the rest of the world.  People need to know their place and the instruments of power need to be reserved for those in the ruling class.  Massive immigration is part of the plan.  They need to flood the country with enough people that they do not assimilate.  They don’t want the new people to become Americans.  They want them to be enclaves they can control.

In Who Are We? Samuel Huntington quotes Nathan Glazer and Daniel Moynihan about assimilation.
“‘To what does one assimilate in modern America?’  In 1900 the answer was clear:  assimilation meant Americanization.  In 2000 the answers were complicated, contradictory, and ambiguous.  Many elite Americans were no longer confident of the virtue of their mainstream culture and instead preached a doctrine of diversity and equal validity of all cultures in America.” p. 199
The Average American believes that this country is the best place to live.  They believe that historically the American dream is unique.  This country has brought security and prosperity to the masses.  Again the Declaration of Independence talks about “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”.  The Elite does not like that because a happy, secure, prosperous America does not need them.  We threaten them because if large numbers of people are successful they will undermine the elite’s power and threaten their control.

Thus they must bring us down.  It is what is going on when we see a common American, Michael Flynn going to trial and an admitted criminal, Hillary Clinton, still on the speaking circuit. 

Will we pull out of the nose dive?  Is it too late?  The Anointed that control education, media and bureaucratic government are working to replace the American Dream with something we might call “The Divine Right of the Elite.”  It took hundreds of years for common people to get a solid victory.  The battle is still going on.  It will continue even is America falls.  It will resurrect itself every time a peasant looks at the stars and says, “This isn’t right!”

As we often paraphrase Pogo, “We have met the Civil War, and it is us.”
