16 Jun How to destroy a culture
Things are getting weirder and weirder and people are scratching their heads and thinking they must not understand what is happening. Well, they’d better wake up, quit feeling stupid and start objecting to just about every new law, fee, regulation, and politically correct dictum coming down the pike.
For decades, the powers-that-be (PTB) worked long and hard to put together a blueprint to control the world. That blueprint is Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, published by the United Nations. They then wrote the directions on how to take that framework and make it the Law of the Land, i.e., “all of the laws in force within a country or region including common law,” according to Wikipedia.
The PTB have gone a long way to achieving those goals. Late last month I attended a meeting here in Knoxville, attended by some 200 people who for the most part worked in planning or transportation in the 16 county regional plan (presented to the citizens as planET/ 5 Counties, One Vision). (Note: re the disparity of 5 counties in the plan becoming 16, my assumption is that in order to fulfill the grant from HUD requirement of resident participation, rather than do their ‘dog and pony’ show in 16 counties [a lot of make-do work and time], they’d present it to the five counties and just absorb the other nine when the farce was over.)
The audience at the meeting, instead of wanting to know what the presenters (promoting walkable, bike-able, stack-em and pack-em cities) were pushing and asking why we might need/want these changes, they were wanting to know how they could effect change (rules and regulations) quickly to achieve this nirvana state of no cars here in sprawled out East Tennessee. If it is happening here with no outcry, it is happening across the country. In fact there are many places that are far more down that regionalism/commutarianism road to utopia.
So the means to destroy personal freedom, the right to private property, and the Rule of Law are set and being implemented now. But there is a need also to destroy the culture that gave us freedom or it will rear up it’s ugly head again. The PTB have no desire to have to deal with unruly subjects, so off with some of their heads and the rest – wipe out the values, attitudes and beliefs. Not easy? Hah. That’s what I thought, but I am wrong. Political correctness is the answer to the culture issue.
Western Culture is a product of the Judeo-Christian religious traditions, Socrates, and the ancient Greeks. But what is it? Western Culture encompasses many things, but some of the key features are individual freedom, capitalism, rational thought, Rule of Law, and democracy. How do you destroy these values?
Look at a few ways that are being used today;
“This is what being German will mean in the future! No more blue eyes, light hair and claiming ‘we’re all German’! . . . wearing a Hijab, having dark hair. This is what being German means today.”
And the blond, blue-eyed Germans are clapping and shouting bravos.
Next, destroying gender distinctions: if there is no sex, there is no father and mother, no son or daughter.
Second, as a strictly practical matter, if we enforce the strict, birth-certificate-based biological essentialism the right wing demands, we’ll end up with masculine-appearing, male-identified people who live as men in the women’s room, and feminine-appearing, female-identified people who live as women in the men’s room, which is a ridiculous result for public policy.
Maria (and others like hir) are set to completely confound both of these arguments. Gay and transgender rights advocates have been quietly dodging the issue of binary heteronormativity, but that sound you hear is the other shoe finally dropping… hard.
As to the first argument, there is no “appropriate” bathroom which legal advocates might fight for Maria to access, because the entire argument depends on fitting Maria into the dominant, hetero-binary structure of boy vs. girl. It’s a deeply ingrained societal dichotomy with which most of us who are profoundly genderqueer have had to struggle since birth.
Simply put, in Maria’s case, there is no underlying binary gender identification on which to base the claim. You have to instead critique the heterobinary structure itself.
And we have the Big Lie, that is supposed to beg big government to take care of every aspect of our lives (i.e., to give them our freedom which includes our property rights), Global Warming/Climate Change. The reinventing of a global economy is, in truth, redistribution of American and Western European wealth to the PTB in the disguise of support the destitute of the world.
EPA Chief concedes no climate impact from ‘climate rule’: It’s about ‘reinventing a global economy’
“Over a period of twenty months, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy repeatedly concedes that the Agency’s sweeping climate-regulation of America’s fossil fuel-fired power plants will have no impact on the Earth’s climate. McCarthy openly admits that the Clean Power Plan “is not about end of pipe controls.” Instead, she says the rule is about “driving investment in renewables…, [and] advancing our ongoing clean energy revolution”. McCarthy says, “That’s what… reinventing a global economy looks like.”
And what of the Judeo/Christian religious traditions that are the basis of Western Culture? Let’s gut them and replace with Gaia and Greens.
Houses of Worship Take Their Environmental Leadership to the Next Level.
“GROUNDBREAKING! It has been one of the best things we have participated in as a church.”-Trinity Presbyterian Church
The GreenFaith Certification Program is turning houses of worship into environmental leaders. The benefits are clear:
Protect Creation: From eco-themed worship services, to ‘greening’ of the building, congregations are making significant changes.
Principles of Environmental Justice
Delegates to the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit held on October 24-27, 1991, in Washington DC, drafted and adopted 17 principles of Environmental Justice. Since then, The Principles have served as a defining document for the growing grassroots movement for environmental justice.
WE, THE PEOPLE OF COLOR, gathered together at this multinational People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit, to begin to build a national and international movement of all peoples of color to fight the destruction and taking of our lands and communities, do hereby re-establish our spiritual interdependence to the sacredness of our Mother Earth; to respect and celebrate each of our cultures, languages and beliefs about the natural world and our roles in healing ourselves; to ensure environmental justice; to promote economic alternatives which would contribute to the development of environmentally safe livelihoods; and, to secure our political, economic and cultural liberation that has been denied for over 500 years of colonization and oppression, resulting in the poisoning of our communities and land and the genocide of our peoples, do affirm and adopt these Principles of Environmental Justice:
1) Environmental Justice affirms the sacredness of Mother Earth, ecological unity and the interdependence of all species, and the right to be free from ecological destruction.
That is the tip of the iceberg but you can see what all of political correctness is addressing. It isn’t about being nice, stopping bullying, and liking everyone. It is about making all of us equally stupid and equally slaves of the PTB.
