I poached this from another thread, (hope you don't mind parnelli) because this is exactly what I was thinking this past weekend. I don't mean to sound pessimistic or defeatist but in reality we have all but lost the war for our liberties our values, traditions and culture. It's all been replaced with PC drivel.It is amazing how misinformation so often takes precedence over the truth in our society. But then, considering that our entire public education system is run by the government, and most of the media is just a mouthpiece for them, that should come as no surprise!
I don't know when the government took control of the schools but that was the biggest blow to our nation. The lack of real education is shameful. There is very little that is taught in today's or yesterdays classrooms that has any real merit. It's mostly agenda driven and run by unions and bureaucrats. It was a calculated move by the left. Kruschev said "communism would take the US without firing a shot".
Communism has metamorphosed with Marxism, socialism and other ideologies into a rather imposing force. It is entrenched into the very fabric of this society to the point that most people don't realize or question it when it's blatantly obvious and counter to what this country was founded upon. If this process is to be halted and the ship righted it will take a couple generations, if at all. I'm not waving a white flag and will not go down without a fight but lets face it people. It's looking pretty dark with some big storm clouds overhead.
The media is complicit and corrupt and all too willing to feed at the trough. Journalists are a by-product of the same system. They feed off each other and it's not too far from state run media. They tell you what they want you to know. Fluff up the rest to keep everyone distracted. They don't investigate anymore, unless it's something from the right. They idolize the left and pop culture. The news and entertainment media and the democrats are in bed together. The left tries to strip us of our liberties while the media smiles and tells us that it's all for the greater good.
