The Great Beset

Over the river and through the woods

To New World Order we go.

Globalists know the way

To impose their sway

Through despotic control

Inclusivity, sustainability, resiliency — these are all terms that Schwab himself used when he declared in June, 2020, “Now is the time for a great reset.”

If I told you that there are bad actors who want to take over the world, you might shrug me off as someone who has watched too many James Bond movies. Well, the SPECTRE of something wicked this way comes.

There are movers and shakers toil and trouble makers who want to make a name for themselves and have a towering influence over you. The following (italicized) quotes are from the World Economic Forum Website

There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.

Who are the global stakeholders? They are not you or me. We are the ants in the WEF ant farm. The global stakeholders are those with the most influence – “top innovators, market shapers, disruptors, . . .”.

And from the WEF websiteForum Members are a key group of business stakeholders that engage in public-private cooperation with academics, government and civil society to improve the state of the world.

Forum Members are those who come to say “How did I live without the world economic forum?” Just take a look. And, here is one of WEF’s propaganda videos: DAVOS 2020: MAKING A FAIRER WORLD

You and I will not be involved in global stakeholder top-down decision making. Those aligning themselves with the World Economic Forum do NOT care about Democracy, vox populi, and sovereign nations. The WEF stakeholders deem themselves sovereign, in the order of a Lenin or a Mao. The global stakeholders will ‘represent’ the working class with totalitarian dictatorship, political repression and eventually mass killing. You have to break eggs in order to improve the state of the world!

Are you OK with a group of godless elitists deciding what is fair, just and equitable? Are you OK with their free-floating morality that says “my body my choice” for abortions but not for vaccines, that bans travel from Africa but doesn’t ban COVID-carrying illegal immigrants traveling across the southern border, that says “you must wear a mask in restaurants” but I don’t have to when I eat at the French Laundry, that says your carbon footprint must be reduced but we use ours for the good of the world at COP26?

Are you OK with a one-size-fits-all-except-for elites vision for the world?

Consider that global stakeholders are forcing a narrative of a COVID crisis and a vaccine solution onto the world population. Sickness is profitable and health is not.

“. . . the inoculation of people with an experimental genic serum that provokes a weakening of our natural immune system represents a very grave crime, because it turns ordinary healthy people into chronically ill people, and consequently into customers of the health care companies and private care. This situation hugely inflates the profits of the globalist élite and brings a general impoverishment of the population.” Archbishop Vigamo

Have you ever heard Saint Fauci say that the best way to build your immunity and to fend off COVID is to take Vitamins C and D, Zinc, and Quercetin, to lose weight, to exercise . . . and use HCQ or Ivermectin for early treatment. No. Saint Fauci is a global stakeholder in SWEFTRE. He wants you to focus all your attention on the globalist’s Big Pharma solution and learn to not think for yourself at all.

Consider that inept Pete Buttigieg, the Biden regime’s secretary of transportation and supply chain disrupter, is an example of the Peter Principle and Build Back Better. The cackling V.P. Kamala Harris, is another example. The Biden Build Back Better regime is rife with incompetence. And it appears that when you are incompetent you double down on “being right” and hope for a different outcome. This has been true of Democrat mayors and Governors.

Are you OK with a group of godless elitists deciding what is fair, just and equitable?

Do you want to repeat what collectivist/communist Russia, China and other godless totalitarian countries have done to its people in the name of fairness, justice and equity?

Does anyone think that by repeating the same evil over and over again that good will eventually be produced? Clearly, Progressives think this way.

It is the Progressives who are urgently needed by WEF to cooperate in managing the direct consequences of the (manufactured) COVID-19 crisis. They are the ones recruited to take part in world domination. WEF is using a template similar to that of Spectre: launch an international surveillance network to mastermind authoritarian control across the globe.

For purposes of this post, let’s call WEF’s “collective and collaborative” global fascist association SWEFTRE or Special Economic World Forum for Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. Their mastermind is the “Strong Man” (See the Gospel of Mark 3:27).

What does improve the state of the world mean? From the evidence of the past 20 months, it means exhausting and exploiting mankind with financial and social upheaval to a point of surrender to the global criminal organization’s power.

The Context

The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making. The inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems –from health and financial to energy and education – are more exposed than ever amidst a global context of concern for lives, livelihoods and the planet. Leaders find themselves at a historic crossroads, managing short-term pressures against medium- and long-term uncertainties.

Friends, it is the stakeholder disrupters of SWEFTRE and their “fundamental transformation” decision-making imposed on us that has caused the political, economic and social disruptions, NOT COVID-19. SWEFTRE stakeholders now mantra us that Build Back Better will fix the inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems.

Don’t the inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems –from health and financial to energy and education represent, represent freedom of individual response – human agency – to SWEFTRE disruptions? And when people have a choice, don’t they choose to fix inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions on their own?

To SWEFTRE, individual agency is source of the short-term pressure and medium- and long-term uncertainties. Humans are the problem. So, the need for fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making means “flattening the curve” of human agency with a hammer and sickle.

Our ‘empathetic’ benefactors at SWEFTRE want us to buy into the notion that they are fundamentally transforming the world (i.e., removing your God-given rights, your choice and humanity, and subjecting you to their world order) amidst a global context of concern for lives, livelihoods and the planet.

The Opportunity

As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being.

Note: window of opportunity = “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” – Rahm Emanuel

. . . this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons.

Translation: Forget God. Forget the kingdom of God. Forget be fruitful and multiply. We at the WEF are the real deal. You have our Build Back Better happy talk and pictures of us shaking hands. We have a wonderful plan for your life!

The tentacles of SWEFTRE will reach everywhere and everyone.

Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being.

Translation: The godless few will tell the many how to live as serfs off their largesse. The Great Reset’s new social contract will force us into a bondage and indentured servitude not different from slavery.

They will shackle us with a digital Vaxx Passports and Social Credit Scoring. Businesses will be forced to serve the tenets of Woke religion: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and Environment, Social and Governance (ESG). Your employer will use the word “behavior” in your performance reviews.

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Fed Vax Database and social credit scoring are comin’ to town

They’re making a list
And checking it twice;
They’re gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Fed Vax Database and social credit scoring are comin’ to town

The State media is in cahoots with SWEFTRE, the source of its revenue stream. As such, the media diverts attention away from the globalist’s methods by fostering Trump, COVID-19 and Climate Change derangement syndromes. The state media is all in on vaccines, vaccine mandates and vaxx passports. The state media is all in on controlling the narrative of your life. Next up for the state media?

In establishing a great narrative, SWEFTRE is looking to assert an authoritative storyline to convince people why they need a great reset of society and the global economy.

“The Great Narrative Initiative [is] a collaborative effort of the world’s leading thinkers to fashion longer-term perspectives and co-create a narrative that can help guide the creation of a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable vision for our collective future” — World Economic Forum, 2021

World Economic Forum to Launch ‘Great Narrative’ Initiative Following the Great Reset – Business Game Changers (sarahwestall.com)

Our collective future? Yikes! SWEFTRE wants Communism 2022. This time will be different, of course. This time around there are top innovators, market shapers, disruptors and a key group of business stakeholders that engage in public-private cooperation with academics, government and civil society to improve the state of the world. Feel better now?  This time it’s world communism for the creation of a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable vision for our collective future.

BUT, if you don’t agree with the Great Narrative and the collective, you will be banished to a gulag. If you don’t agree with universal mandates and having your behavior monitored and your bank and vaccine accounts monitored and receiving DEI and CRT training, and having your healthcare come from the WHO, you will be banished to a gulag. Communists do not handle dissent very well. Read Gulag Archipelago.

You have to break eggs in order to improve the state of the world!

Like its predecessor the COVID narrative (masking, isolation and the jab), the Great Narrative is meant to replace a social bond with a digital bond. You and I are to be bonded not with each other but to what SWEFTRE dispatches through digital means including the nanoparticle in vaccines. Good luck trying to dodge the bio-bullets.

What’s true in the Kingdom of God is true for its worldly knockoff:
“If you have something, you’ll be given more; but if you have nothing, even what you have will be taken away.” (Mark 4:25)

Jesus spoke openly of gaining the mysteries of the kingdom of God, including losing one’s life to save it.

In the knockoff world of the kingdom of globalists there is hush-hush wink-of-the-eye talk about gaining power and possessions. If you die to save the world, from say a climate catastrophe, the better they look.

The Great Narrative from the father of lies is meant to supersede the Kingdom of God narrative announced by Jesus:

After John’s arrest, Jesus came into Galilee announcing God’s good news.

“The time is fulfilled!’ he said. “God’s kingdom is arriving! Turn back and believe the good news!” (Mark 1:14-15)

For the life of me, I cannot understand why churches are embracing the mandates and going along the globalist narratives. Mandates are not law and, more importantly, no Christian should obey immoral and unjust laws. Just because the words “health” and “science” are used to predicate mandates do not make the mandates moral and just. No government entity shall tell me what to do with my body, the Temple of God.

And why are churches conforming to a Progressive worldview? Is it to look empathetic? Why did the psalmist write “Let sinners be consumed from the earth and the wicked be no more”? Does church leadership think that the “wicked” are a thing of the past? What is going on with the WEF and the Great Reset is wicked. It is the spirit of the anti-Christ.

And, why are churches not preparing congregations for what is coming? Why are they still telling Bible stories and building buildings and acting like if they just go along then things will go back to normal? There will be no more normal. With this post and preceding ones I’ve given you glimpses into the agenda of the wicked. That agenda and the movers and shakers toil and trouble makers involved with it want nothing to do with God.

Pastor, priest and rabbi – this is not the time to feign normal to comfort your sheep. This is a time to get off the pew, get out from a safe space and confront the evil taking place. This is not the time hide behind a 501 C3 status. The Great Reset is upon us!

“A large number of our Christian leaders are persisting in acting as though the church is ministering during a placid time of transition, say, from the administration of Dwight D. Eisenhower to that of JFK, instead of where we actually are, which is at the stumbling, staggering, and drunken transition from Caligula to Claudius to Nero.” – anonymous source

It is time to reset: “Turn back and believe the good news!”

******

“The post-totalitarian system touches people at every step, but it does so with its ideological gloves on. This is why life in the system is so thoroughly permeated with hypocrisy and lies: government by bureaucracy is called popular government; the working class is enslaved in the name of the working class; the complete degradation of the individual is presented as his or her ultimate liberation; depriving people of information is called making it available; the use of power to manipulate is called the public control of power, and the arbitrary abuse of power is called observing the legal code; the repression of culture is called its development; the expansion of imperial influence is presented as support for the oppressed; the lack of free expression becomes the highest form of freedom; farcical elections become the highest form of democracy; banning independent thought becomes the most scientific of world views; military occupation becomes fraternal assistance. Because the regime is captive to its own lies, it must falsify everything. It falsifies the past. It falsifies the present, and it falsifies the future. It falsifies statistics. It pretends not to possess an omnipotent and unprincipled police apparatus. It pretends to respect human rights. It pretends to persecute no one. It pretends to fear nothing. It pretends to pretend nothing.” Vàclan Havel, The Power of the Powerless

Thanksfornothing

How’s your Thanksfornothing Holiday shaping up? Did you check The Fauci’s Almanac for your T-day forecast? Do you know when to wear a mask and when to hold ‘em? Will you only invite the vaxxed? The Fauci’s Almanac says “If you get vaccinated and your family’s vaccinated, you can feel good about enjoying a typical Thanksgiving, Christmas with your family and close friends.” And, if you are in a public setting such as a store or church “go the extra mile, be safe, wear a mask.”

If you are traveling, remember to avoid using “racist roads and bridges” to go “over the river and through the woods” to grandmother’s house.

Check in with your DEI training before making your list of invitees. At the very least invite a black gay woman and a pregnant man for diversity-equity-inclusion’s sake.

Also invite a minor-attracted Jesuit to give the blessing on the food, the 1619 Project, CRT, DEI, ESG, the World Economic Forum, The Great Reset, the LGBTQRSTUV, the CDC, the NIH, the administrative state, Vaxx passports, Saint Fauci, Pope Francis, and the house of Biden.

Before your guests arrive put on your CHOOSE WOKELY apron. Have your husband put on a clean #NO JUSTICE NO POLICE tee shirt. When your guests arrive show them the safe space area with Play-Doh. You want to make sure that the easily triggered and those suffering from unexpected malaise will have a place to untrigger and demalaise.

Will you be serving the House Build Back Better turkey? If so, you will need your Emergency Use funds to buy your inflation-mandated turkey and fixins. Please don’t forget to inject your turkey with the Moderna vaccine and to PCR test it before serving. And, please wear a mask when carving the turkey. The vaccines are totally effective but not completely effective.

Stuff your conversation with the bread of life – Wokeianity. Dish out a cornucopia of social justice platitudes – like how the world should be a more just and equitable place, a place where, in your parable teaching, dark meat is prepared and served in greater portions than white meat. You should discuss white meat privilege.

When your kids ask “Why?” tell them that “blackness” is oppressed and “whiteness” is the oppressor; that “blackness” must replace “whiteness” in those roles. Having your children seeing in this color-coded way is essential to a discriminating social justice. We are to be defined by our race and not as individuals.

Remind your aunt Myrtle to mind her white privilege P’s and Q’s when you ask her to pass the peas and carrots to your black tranny guest. And remember to use the baby talk-like pronouns for your diverse guests as required by Woke decorum.

The adults should remind the children at the table that voter IDs are racist, men always oppress women, whites always oppress blacks, socialism is better than capitalism, that materialism is all you need, that the planet will cease to exist unless we address climate change, that the 1st and 2nd Amendments are serious threats to democracy, that Black Lives Matter, that abortions but not vaccines are a My Body My Choice matter, and that science like roads and bridges is racist and must be socially reengineered.

Make sure your kids understand that those who don’t agree with your Wokeianity are Islamophobic, homophobic, xenophobic, dupes, and deplorable.

Let your table conversation include the efficacy and wonders of both the vaccines and open borders. Tell your guests about your EVs and then encourage them to discuss the absolute horror of the world ending in the next five years if we don’t do something about climate change right now. Let them know that the grapevines growing the Napa wine you are serving are in danger.

Serve your kids Woka-Cola so they feel at perfect harmony with the world.

Make sure to spoon out lots of righteous indignation and shame onto the heads of the uninvited unvaxxed. That will make your guests feel special. And let them use their smartphones while eating. That is how activism happens. And please leave the TV on during the meal so that your guests will be reminded during commercial breaks that booster shots are available to Build you Back Better.

When coffee and dessert are served, have your university graduate son speak to the issue of how giving thanks is a practice that came down from the racist Puritans and must be denounced as oppressive to blacks. And, to how that every good and perfect gift comes down from the government. Then you will have a Happy Thanksfornothing!

Ask Yourself …

Ask yourself …

Did the media just elect Geritol-ad Joe Biden as president-elect of their sock puppet theater?

Does the media care whether your one vote is disenfranchised by two illegal/invalid votes?

Did illegal votes pour in just like illegal aliens poured in at the behest of Democrats?

Are you buying the narrative that by not conceding to the main stream media/Democrats and by demanding a thorough investigation into alleged election corruption you are delegitimizing Democracy?

Was the NYT headline of Nov. 11, 2020 American Democracy DEMANDS every legal vote to be counted and the rest tossed? Or, was it Election Officials Nationwide Find no Fraud?

Should we just get on with our lives and assume that what the NYT and the media tells us (“Nothing to see here.”) is “good enough for me”?

During the takeover of a country by the forces of a dictatorship, does the media ‘cooperate’ with the power they are in cahoots with?

Do you believe that the media has your best interest at heart?

Are you aware that the media and social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.,) pose the greatest threats to democracy?

Are you OK with and feel secure in Groupthink?

Are you Ok with the shadow government of Democrats/media operating to take down President Trump the last four years?

Is the Democrat/Progressive party the party of Bolshevism?

Are you OK with submitting your income, your rights, yourself and your country to Bernie Sanders, BLM and the Socialist spice girls (Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar)?

Are you OK with the intolerance of the Democrats/Progressives/media and their desire to cancel you (your thoughts, your words, your religion) out?

Are you OK with being reduced to the lowest common denominator of life because socialism/Marxism says it must be so for equality?

Are you OK with Biden rescinding, through executive order, the immigration policies put in place to protect the country?

Have you heard of any terrorist attack on U.S. soil during the last four years?

Have you heard of the U.S. starting wars the last four years?

Are you OK with Biden placing America – its resources, its tax revenue and its people – at the behest of the self-serving token Paris Accord (a Tower of Babel) while the American private sector, the last four years, has produced alternative green energy sources and has made America energy independent?

What really matters: numbers of cases and positivity OR deaths directly and solely related to COVID-19?

Are you OK with a state government that shuts down your business and your livelihood as it plays God seeking to control a virus?

Will state government shut down communities and businesses for climate change and racism and “gun control” calling each a “public health crisis?

Who is the “public” in “public health”?

Is the “greater good” proffered by the state as the reason for its coercive and overbearing control of your life really the greater good?

Do you agree with a member of Biden’s new coronavirus task force and lockdown enthusiast, Dr. Zeke Emanuel, that life is not worth living past 75?

Who should have the say about your health: the state or you?

Do you believe the state is the answer to healthcare and not yourself?

Are we to obey all laws?

Am I ready for civil disobedience?

Are you OK with increased cases of depression, drug use, suicides, and child and spousal abuse that the lockdowns have produced?

Are you ready to disobey all state orders that hinder human flourishing, that are antisocial and inhuman and, that produce the negative effects as mentioned above?

Should we obey stay-at home advisories and orders? And, why?

Should we “cancel Thanksgiving” as Chicago’s Mayor Lightfoot has strongly advised?

Who should be quarantined?

Who should not be quarantined?

Should you be quarantined?

Who should not be forced to stay at home and to cancel Thanksgiving?

When Democrats propose policies do you challenge them and ask economist Thomas Sowell’s questions: “Compared to what?” and “At what cost?” and “What hard evidence do you have?”

Are you able to challenge them or are you cut off because you are not making them look good and they don’t have the answers to your questions?

Do Progressives care more about their vision than about humans they want to impose their vision on?

Are you able to think for yourself or do you need the state/media to tell you what to think?

Do you operate out of a sense of fear that has been relentlessly generated by the media and the state?

Should casinos operate with greater freedom and flexibility than houses of worship?

Should Illinois restauranteurs defy state mandates that drive them out of business and create massive unemployment?

 Should parents of school-age children in Illinois rally and protest to reopen schools?

Are the U.S. (and world) public health officials joined at the hip with China?

Are the U.S. public health policies driven by China, as are Hollywood and pro-sports?

Will compulsory vaccines, contact tracing and vaccine cards become the means to separate who’s in and who’s out of the New Globalist World Order in the coming days?

Are you OK with abuse of power and a Stalinist type enemies list and another Great Purge?

Do you rant and rave, calling America “racist” and society “systemically racist”, because you grew up in a single parent home without a father and never learned how to succeed in the world?

Are you OK with the individual being crushed, worn down, and reduced to powder in the mortar and pestle of the totalitarian Progressive Left?

Are you concerned about and afraid of firearms because the TV has relentlessly told you that you should be concerned about and afraid of firearms, as it has with Covid-19 and climate change and healthcare and a host of other socialist initiatives to get you feeding from the same trough?

Ask yourself: Am I still in America?

My Times are Not in Your Hands

Despotism has so often been established in the name of liberty that experience should warn us to judge parties by their practices rather than their preachings.
—Raymond Aron, The Opium of the Intellectuals

During the recent Democratic Presidential ‘debates’, the Progressive Element candidates for president reveal just how incongruous Progressive thinking has become. Two of the candidates, Biden and Booker, stated that they want to beat up Trump, inciting the crowd with their aggression. This within the Progressive mindset that publicly denounces bullying and violence. The Communism appropriator Bolshevik Bernie Sanders and Cherokee heritage appropriator Elizabeth “Angry Eyes” Warren push for collectivist health care as a “yuman right” (a “right” that will consume all of your hard-earned property rights). This while the Progressive Element condemns the Trump campaign of Russian collusion. There’s more from these bizarre Progressivists.

Democratic presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley spent yesterday campaigning in South Carolina in lead up to tonight’s debate. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)

Biden offered a new and improved Obamacare, a dismal and expensive failure for the consumer. The other candidates want to ditch him, Obamacare and Obama’s legacy for their own new and improved version of collectivism.

Biden said that healthcare is the most important issue facing voters and Buttigieg says climate change is the most important issue. This while the Progressive Element legalizes full-term abortion, promotes physically harmful sexual activity and travels to a climate confab at Google camp (Sicily) in private jets and mega-yachts.

According to Italian media reports, guests were expected to arrive in an eye-popping 114 private jets.

The Post guesstimated that with 114 flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, the planes would have pumped an astonishing 100,000 kilos of C02 into the atmosphere.

A-listers arrive in private jets, mega yachts for climate confab

One of the anti-Semitic socialist spice girls, Ocasio-Cortez Spice, has declared that the world will end in twelve years if we don’t do something about climate change. So, I understand the need to confab and to add ‘fuel’ to the narrative before it’s too late. Our betters need to show us a better way.

“Reparation H” Kamala Harris wants you to pay for slavery that didn’t happen on your watch. This from the party of the KKK and Jim Crow. And new age guru Marianne Williamson thinks all you need is love. And that means open borders for the lot of them. This while the cities of San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and others under Democrat control for decades are becoming third-world-like hell-hole cities – overrun with the homeless, rats, used needles, human feces and the spread of infectious diseases. This from the Democrat socialists who say they will do socialism better than what history accords. This – their love for humanity knows no dystopian bounds.

Open borders? They are Progressivism’s response to the perceived authoritarianism of the Right. For borders, boundaries, and laws are too legalistic, fundamentalist and not inclusive. So, they will promote lawlessness as a means to an end – diluting the country with illegals who will vote for more “Anything Goes” Progressivism. This while the streets west and south of “Welcoming City” Chicago are swarming with the law-unto-themselves gang members who slaughter at will. This while they treat our laws as a three-year-old girl who decides she is a boy.

Who are Progressives? The Progressive Element? Besides offering a narrative that Progressivism’s vision will make the world a better place while being equally detached from the reality of this world, Progressivist’s ideological worldview has many other unsettling characteristics.

Economist Thomas Sowell in his book A Conflict of Visions, Ideological Origins of Political Struggle, provides background and understanding of Progressivism’s “unconstrained vision”.

In the Summary and Implications section of the Visons of Social Processes chapter, Sowell writes comparing the “unconstrained vision” with the “constrained vision”:

The two visions differ fundamentally as to the sources of human survival and progress. According to unconstrained vision, the patterned behavior of society is successful, just and progressive insofar as it reflects the articulated rationality of man in general and of the most intellectually and morally advanced people in particular. Order – and especially a just and progressive order – is the result of design, backed by the commitment of people dedicated to the general welfare. In broad outline, this is the vision of the “age of reason”, which began in the eighteenth-century France and has spread throughout the Western world and beyond.

In the constrained vision, where man – individually and collectively – lacks both the intellectual and moral prerequisites for such deliberate, comprehensive planning, order evolves historically without design, and more effectively than when it is designed, Language is one example of such order without design and its complexity, subtlety, and effectiveness exemplify the power of systemic processes which tap the experience of all, instead of relying on special wisdom or nobility of any individual or council. A prominent element within this tradition has applied the constrained vision to economics…. given full expression by Adam Smith and is exemplified today in the writings of Milton Friedman and Friedrich Hayek.

Sowell goes on to describe the difference of the two visions regarding social processes:

The unconstrained vision tends to judge processes by their results – “Is it right? Is it good? …The constrained vision judges rightness and goodness as process characteristics rather than the results: A foot race is fair if it is run under the proper conditions – regardless of who wins or loses, or how often the same person wins. Justice, in the constrained vision, thus means adherence to agreed upon rules, while in the unconstrained vision, something is just or unjust according the end results.

 Progressivism manifests its end result vision with the likes of participation trophies, allowing men to use the women’s locker room and restroom and to participate in women’s sports. Its version of end result equality is a driver for socialism – making every outcome equal. It is also the thinking behind ad hoc justice, which eschews the rule of law, applicable to everyone, and rules on the basis of individual circumstances and narratives rather than behavior and accountability. Progressivism’s ‘justice’, as Sowell describes above, says that the systems and processes produced the criminal. The individual is therefore not accountable for these things. This feeds the narrative that our betters must be in control to produce better people.

To produce equal outcomes, though, requires control of individuals and processes. And that is what the Democrat candidates are proposing in various ways. They want your times in their hands.

To gain control Progressives paint a dystopian future without them in power. Per them, the world will end if we don’t act, democracy will end if they are not given control, and rights, such as slaughtering the human in your womb and men disguised as women appropriating women’s concerns, will be taken away by the Right. Hence the calculating narrative described in my previous post, Manipulated to Follow the Course of This World. The blatant irony of the narrative is that it does not invoke the Age of Reason”. Rather, it invokes a mercenary army of passions to fight for the Progressive narrative.

Reading these ideological vision characteristics one can begin to see that the Progressive Element sees its members, its candidates, as your betters, as Anointed Ones. It was not long ago that one of the “Anointed Ones”, Hillary Clinton, gave the world her “unconstrained vision”:

It Takes a Village: Picture Book

It Takes a Village offers a universal, unifying message. It captures perfectly Clinton’s vision of a multicultural America working toward a constructive goal. So hopeful and forward-looking.” —The Washington Post

 More could be said but I’ll end here. I’ve written several posts about the Progressive Element with a desire to inform the reader of its diabolical ways. Though proclaiming a roadmap that is just and fair and caring it acts in just the opposite ways. They make excuses for their behavior while condemning and persecuting those who do not serve its narrative. They pronounce good “evil” and evil “good”. Their means to ‘equality’ is to bring others (males, whites, the rich…) down and to say that two things that are not equal are equal (male-female marriage and homosexuality). They become enraged when gendered pronouns are used. Coercing language and humans into confusing nonsense is characteristic of Progressives and certainly of the Evil One and his minions.

The values the Progressive Element extols, couched in humanist and even Christian terms, comes from the father of lies. There is no truth in the Progressive Element. The road map these false prophets propose is the “wide way” Jesus talked about (Matt. 7:13-15. Progressives “come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”

 

Therefore, I will not put my life in their hands. Rather, I submit to the One True Narrative…

My times are in your hand;
deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors. -Psalm 31: 15

Lost in Self-logos

 

Thus, in the conception of Humanity, the three essential aspects of Positivism, its subjective principle, its objective dogma, and its practical object, are united. Towards Humanity, who is for us the only true Great Being, we, the conscious elements of whom she is composed, shall henceforth direct every aspect of our life, individual or collective. Our thoughts will be devoted to the knowledge of Humanity, our affections to her love, our actions to her service. -Auguste Comte, A General View of Positivism [1848]

 

Mankind learned centuries ago, by the efforts of men like Polish astronomer Copernicus, that we do not exist in a geocentric universe. Now, according to some physicists, mankind is at the center of the cosmos. In order to avoid a Creator scenario, these scientists promote the anthropic theory:  the reason for the perfectly-tuned universe, for its fundamental physical constants, and the reason why things exist as they are on earth is that human existence required it. To support this theory, they posit a multiverse scenario with infinite trials and errors until man could exist.

Amir Aczel, PH. D., in his book Why Science Does Not Disprove God, describes some physicists’ viewpoint:

…if we are here, and the parameters need to be perfectly chosen for us to be here, then surely there must be infinitely many other places where parameters are wrong. We are here because we can only live where the parameters are right for our existence.

Now, I have no issue with the possibility of multiverses. But as Dr. Aczel writes, the proposed multiverse-as-cause theory to replace the creation narrative offers no mechanism to create the multiverses. The theory proposes an infinite number of somehow existing parameters doing something over and over infinitely many times to finally ‘create’ the perfect conditions for a habitable zone. Dr. Aczel goes on to state, “The anthropic theory is the weakest route to the multiverse.” As I see it, the theory has no mechanism for merit other than those who promote a God-less universe. The theory is basically one of effect with no Ultimate Cause. It is a theory of chance which says man is the reason for his existence.

Man-centered philosophical endorsement would come from the likes of Nietzsche. His “God is dead” rejection of Christian values was a push for mankind to move beyond good and evil and to loving necessity. One is therefore to live with uncertainty as a “superman”, above and center of it all. From the mighty-warrior Nimrod to Wagnerian heroes to the present FX-ed generated superheroes versions of Nietzsche’s “superman” have been around since the Garden. The “superman” notion is akin to Darwin’s theory natural selection and the survival of the fittest. In Nietzschean terms, What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.

Social scientists place man at the center of the universe. Since Adam and Eve’s forced exit from the Garden of Eden, man, it seems to me, has always struggled to reclaim the Garden. Many seek to create a Garden Utopia through a relentless and self-directed improvement of the species. Darwin’s On the Origin of the Species supplies the process: selection, struggle, favored, preservation. Engels and Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, and MaoTse-tung used Darwin’s theory of natural selection as justification for their “class struggle” political and economic theories. Millions have been imprisoned and slaughtered under the banner of “class struggle”. Strands of this ‘societal improvement’ is behind the current humanist thinking which is now being promulgated systematically by the Progressive Element. For Progressives, the social multiverses are the identity-centered tribes they select and deem struggling and require favored status and preservation.

Man, as the principle cause and logos of the universe, creates his own values. Thus, the religion of humanity. Secular humanitarianism is the tie that binds the Progressive Element: atheists, agnostics, deists, social Darwinists and those who buy into sentimental Christianity for the sake of progress. The creation of man-as-logos values produces a querulous society of competing values, hence the culture wars. Amorphous and relativistic values are promoted under the high-sounding and ambiguous rubric of “social justice”. Individualism is turned inward toward self-centered anodyne interest to be protected by “rights”. Progressivism inverts The Second Commandment: “love me as you love yourself”.

Vying for special status, groups call themselves “marginalized” and “victims”. This self-centered push for center stage drives identity politics: self-designated victims ‘struggling’ to ‘survive’ require ‘protection’ (rights). “I’ll make you care about what I care about – me” is the right to impose myself on others and call it “social justice”. Man, as logos, defines the impetus of the “social justice warrior:  resentment disguised as compassion which drives the will to power.

Resentment? Life is not easy to begin with. The arbitrariness of life and the forces beyond our control fuel resentment when contemplated in the context of others. Resentment leads to claiming that one’s gender or sexual proclivity or income status or healthcare as being victimized by others. Such a worldview, one without meaning except for self and necessity and a belief that relationships are defined by power, breeds contempt for those having some perceived advantage. Hence, the demand for societal and economic reparations and at any cost to others. Resentment is fueled by zero-sum thinking: one does not have because someone else has.

Resentment disguised as compassion? Man, as logos, wants to be seen as a self-justified humanitarian. Virtue signaling accomplishes that while being resentful at the same time. It is no-cost faux-altruism intended to make one appear empathetic and compassionate without appearing resentful except for those who question their virtue signaling. This is underneath the self-righteous clamor for the right of universal healthcare, of potable water, of inclusion, diversity, equity and the host of arbitrary self-placating categories.

Resentment disguised as compassion which drives the will to power? In an age that is increasingly nihilistic, power has become the transcendent meaning to life. And once you believe that relationships are defined by power you exercise the will to power to subjugate others to the relationships you desire. The exercise of the will to power implements mental-conditioning of its subjects, hence the revision of language and of history, to fit the narrative. The power to create one’s own truth is what is desired.

The best way to sum this mash of words is with the clarity of two Scripture readings from today. The first relates the man-as-logos worldview. The second reading describes those who are Logos centered.

The Parable of the Prodigal Son was the gospel reading for today: Luke 15: 11-32. The would-be Prodigal Son demands his rights (inheritance) from his father. The son considers his father dead to him. The father transfers assets over to his son. His son turns his shares into cash as he sells the property his father had accumulated over time through the father’s effort. The universe of one departs with his values and his will to power. He’s off to a distant land, far from the logos he knows. He leaves behind his father and the remaining older son to pick up his portion of work.

A lifestyle of nihilistic (sever famine) and sensate pleasure (self-directed compassion) has him eating slop in a pig sty. He’s sees that he is just another animal. His humanism ran out of money. He returns to his senses and heads home. His father sees his son a long way off and runs to meet him. The prodigal repents and the father rejoices in his return from the distant land of self. There is a celebration for the son who was lost but is found … alive. They are reconciled. But the brother has a growing resentment disguised as compassion for his father (“I’ve been slaving for you all these years!”) which drives his will to power to up his rights. He feels his rights, his pride of place, is diminished by his brother’s return and the father showering him with a wealth of unintended consequences.

The second reading is from the Epistles: 2 Corinthians 5: 16- 17. Paul writes about a Logos worldview that sees humanity from a kingdom perspective. He writes what the Prodigal experiences when he returns to the Logos and what the other brother claims as his right to experience.

From this moment on, therefore, we don’t regard anybody from a merely human point of view. Even if we once regarded the Messiah that way, we don’t do so any longer. Thus, if any man is in the Messiah, there is a new creation! Old things have gone, and look – everything has become new!
