Our Destroyed Country
Paul Craig Roberts
In a way Hitler won WW II. Jewish cultural Marxists fled Germany and brought their “march through the institutions” to America. They marched first through the universities and then the public schools, and they succeeded in separating the Democrat Party, corporate leadership, and much of the intellectual and educated population from the Western moral and cultural tradition.
The cultural Marxists did this by attacking the literary canon for lack of cultural diversity. They used education to indoctrinate students with the values and outlooks of those hostile to their own culture which was negatively portrayed. As time passed Shakespeare and Chaucer were replaced as topics of study by queer theory, post-colonialism, critical race theory, and gender theory. In place of the societal unity formed by enculturation, we have the divisiveness of Identity Politics.
Gender theory wipes out distinction between men and women, male and female. Critical race theory infuses white children with guilt and separates them from their race and their parents. Normality is damned for being exclusive and is replaced by the diversity of perversion. This has been underway for several decades in the universities and is now the agenda of the public school system which is staffed with the graduates acculturated into the new diverse culture of the Tower of Babel.
In recent years the march has reached the corporations and male and female sports. The CEO of Disney advocates indoctrinating children with critical race theory and gender theory. White male, heterosexual employees of US corporations, universities, government and military must attend sensitivity training. Recently, the Detroit Tigers celebrated “Pride Night” and encouraged donations to a LBGTQ+ organization of your choice. Men claiming female gender now compete in women’s sports. Clearly, the American culture today is one of total confusion.
How does a society this confused exist? Clearly there is no unity. Without unity there is neither a society nor a nation.
So what is the United States? Isn’t the name “United States” as outdated as Shakespeare and Christian morality? Identity politics and cultural diversity do not permit unity within one state, much less between states.
When there is no culture that can unite people, only force can. It is an artificial unity that is dependent on coercion. In such a country there is no room for a bill of rights and constitutional protections.
Even the concept of sin has been turned inside out. Today traditional morality’s disapproval of sexual perversion is damned for the sin of intolerance. Once morality is disarmed, all barriers to degeneracy fall.
And they have.
The new barriers are enforcements against the values of the overthrown culture. It is no longer permitted.
The young are born into a Tower of Babel. For them it is normality.
