Today's Drudge Report has a headline by Armstrong Williams, a leading conservative voice, and a backer of Ben Carson for President in 2016. It's title is 'Spiritual Illness is crippling America'. Does anyone doubt this? Of course, the schools and media will hush this up, because if American's realize we are ill, we'd start making different choices, and that would mean the media, drug industry, porn industry, alcohol industry, and other illicit ventures would lose fortunes. They really don't like that idea at all. So, they have a huge interest in keeping the patient ill, so as to continue the patients dependence upon them.
The article went on to detail the horrifying case of a comatose patient in an Arizona nursing facility, who has been comatose for 14 years, suddenly giving birth. This made it quite obvious that she was raped by one off the staff at the facility, and an investigation is underway. We were begun, despite the lefts constant shrieks about 'muh slavery' and 'muh Indian's land', by virtuous men. They had faults, but they understood the fight between good and evil, and even the vices some were guilty of, they never dreamed of representing as good, but they even decried their own bad habits. Contrast this with today's left. If you call out their bad habits, they don't apologize in the least for them, and they are even proud of them. Notice how some of the people who are the most corrupt and wicked, will constantly dredge up the slightest wrongdoing of those in the past, real or imagined, and use it to try and justify their own evil choices today. This is a standard tactic of the wicked. They don't want to change, and they will viciously attack anyone who is good who calls them out. There are many pseudo-conservatives who fit in this category as well.
This began when America departed from the Bible. When we introduced the evolution fairytale, and trained humans they were animals, why are we surprised when we have so many who act like animals? Notice, the left's triple values, money, power, and pleasure. The Bible calls it, in 1 John, 'the lusts of the flesh, the pride of life, and the lust of the eye'. Jeff Bezos, the wealthiest man in the world, is getting divorced for cheating on his wife. This is quite common. It's far rarer for a wealthy and powerful man in America to be virtuous, than it is for him to be corrupt. And when your powerful leaders are corrupt, you can be sure the people are in trouble.
There is a battle, every day, within every one of us, between the spiritual and the carnal. The spirit, which elevates, refines, purifies, and brings love, peace and joy wars against the carnal, which is base, low, vile, filthy, wicked, and evil, and which leads to misery, anguish, and agony. And the carnal has been winning in America for decades. We are dying.
At last nights local school board, we learned that our schools went from 20,000 students in the 1990's, to below 10,000 today. It has shrunk by half. The beloved elementary school I once attended as a child now resembles a fortress. The place where I happily played kickball, soccer, football, four square, tetherball, and basketball at recess, is now surrounded by fencing and walls, and no one can enter when school is not in session, and children are guarded to prevent them from leaving when it is. Our society is dying. This is what happens when pleasure is worshiped, and children are viewed as a burden. When a society values money over life, that society is headed to certain destruction. But, the Marxist Epicureans on the left, think only pleasure matters, that life itself, along with the spirit are meaningless, and that morality is relative.
What is even sadder than watching the Decline and Fall of America, is the Americans who stubbornly refuse to admit anything is wrong, and insist upon engaging in the daily routines that have gotten us into the mess to begin with. They don't want to examine history or themselves. Too much thinking. We prefer idleness, folly, partying, drinking, and having a good time. We prefer attending concerts, sporting events, or some other event where we can go to amuse ourselves to death, not interact with hardly anyone, and come home to do it all over again.
Half of solving a problem, is admitting there is one to begin with. Each of us, whether we care to admit it or not, has an influence on othe
