New Zion

.
By all means, let's keep enriching the faux-Arab-Spring.  (Sarc.) America will remain immune from the rolling thunder of hate only so long as decent, religious, spiritually-empathetic folk remain vigilant and not too disheartened to avail principled moderation. Americans are used to being wooed, not forced. It would seem fundamentally mistaken to suggest this is not attributable to Christian founding and maturation. As Americans' fidelity to traditional symbols of spiritual empathy is eroded by know-it-all change-artists and secular militants, more and more people will succumb to the rolling force of hate over principle.
.
Most Americans are conditioned to fall for the smiling, competently-likeable, go-along-get-along guy. That will change as our society becomes more tribally divided. Thanks a lot, salad bowl people! Much danger will lie in opportunity availed of crisis. As wedges define and bind antagonists based on hatred of persons and tribes more so than ideas, the adrenalin-driven hatred that can be stirred by a 1 percent cadre of true believers who pretend to represent the remaining 99 percent will become awesome! Given a spoil-financed and dedicated cadre, the worm of hubristic tyranny can turn anywhere at any time. Narmer,Lugal-Anne-Mundu, Sargon, Thutmose, Ramesses, Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus, Darius, Helu, Critias, Alexander, Maurya, Caeser, Constantine, Atilla, Clovis, Justinian, Muhammad, Devapala, Charlemagne, Ivar the Boneless, Yoritomo, Khan, Vlad, Richard III, Isabella, Moctezuma, Elizabeth, Ivan, Nader, Robespierre, Napoleon, Jackson, T. Roosevelt, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Kim, Castro, Amin, Pol Pot, Chavez.
.
In festering stew, competition tends to favor the most sociopathic. At some point, sociopathy will not be resisted with mere smiles. To survive, Christians will need to become principled defenders of a Zion of human freedom and dignity. This is not isolationism. It's decent common sense.

From A.T.-- Re Libertarianism
Re: "The moral support of families is a great benefit but people would form families without any other urgings for purely economic reasons"
.
Your analysis is too glib! By that, I mean materialistically Marxist. Ask: What kinds of families will be formed for "purely economic" reasons? For household heads who use and sell children, or who gain welfare receipts on their account? For Libertine justifiers of polygamous communes? I can see Libertines jumping all over this glib palaver. Too often, people argue as if it would somehow constitute "smaller government" simply to twist government 180 degrees. Does it make government smaller or bigger, in the name of "purely economic reasons," to require: That all manner of social relations be required to be treated as on equal par with traditional marriage; that it be a deprivation of a child's rights to allow parents to prescribe restrictions on various practices concerning drugs and dating; that the Law enforce the right of every child to be Libertine; that it be made a violation of speech codes to debate in public whether all sex relations are equal; etc. I don't think the "it takes a village" mentality translates into smaller government. I think it translates into more centralized government, by messing with the traditional social fabric.
.
Americans are not being drawn into angry face offs because of some abstract notion about the size of government. They are at dangerous loggerheads because government is actively undermining the family as the glue of the social fabric, and then cutely feigning that no harm is being done, because, after all, economic units will simply reorganize. Yes, they will reorganize! But it will be under a stifling, intrusive, centralizing agglomeration of power over all minutiae of living. That's the cost of know-it-all undermining of the traditional family. But it won't get measured in GDP or the Marxist mindset. Your words do sound fine! However, it's what Libs tend to want, but are careful not to say, that concerns me. "Small government" tends to be a thin fig leaf for the real agenda of many Libs.

Government is like air, and will fill every vacuum. It's not the size of government that's the problem. It's the centralizing quality. It's how decisions are taken away from levels at which they should be made and agglomerated to arbitray persons above. Important example: Responsibility for rearing kids is dragged from parents and assigned to schools, the Department of Education, the Justice Department, Marxist organizations, and disloyal international cronies who own politicians as if owning entire nations. It's not even government, per se. It's disloyal, purely-economically selfish-materialists of no loyalty to any spiritual philosophy or nation, and their true-believing dolts.
.
There're no intelligent real communists. North Korean goons and Chinese princelings are NOT bent on improving lives for masses, except as that may translate to selfish benefit. Crony socialists are owned by crony capitalists. For a pure materialist, there's no government, nation, or people to be loyal to! It's mox nix whether you call a crony a crony socialist or a crony capitalist. He's a crony MATERIALIST! with no pursuit higher than his own aggrandizement. His religion is that there is nothing, and no value, higher than materialism. Cinos, Dinos, Rinos, and Linos! Oh my! They're crony, back-scratching, tribal Materialists! Their Utopia is a world with territories carved up for syndicates of materialists of wealth or pleasure above all else. To get freedom and dignity for masses, people need to be inspired to believe in liberty above materiality, to recognize liars, and to defend their homeland against cannibals who want to erase borders and sell the people into competition to be cheap laborers for third world materialists.
.
Which candidate is not a servant for NWO cannibals? It's not clear. Regardless, unless enough people wake up, no one CAN service liberty for the mass of Americans. A populaton with one percent united goons can rule a world of sheep. A population of only one percent sheep who are awake will not be able to resist the one percent who are goons. A nation divided or without assimilated consciousness of liberty is a happy hunting ground for materialist goons.

It's hard to be a hypocrite when you have no principles to be hypocritical about. Obama's record, even though largely hidden, was still open enough to show everyone with capacity to think that he was a liar from the beginning. How can a liar be a hypocrite? His friends see him as a tide of lies. Catch the right wave, ride prosperous goodies with homies. Deplete the West, enrich the East. It's good thing to take down colonialists, dig? Choke energy at home while homies get ready to hedge with energy abroad. Those who know Obama best know him like the tide. Only non-homies and idiots who thought he stood for human liberty, or America, or hope for everyone, are the losers. Of course, this includes David Brooks. O'Reilly? He has no point. He's just a predictable cruiser for easy ratings. No analysis there. What's the point of debating with a Liar or a Prog? I know, Rinos are liars too. But at least they know they will be challenged to support their points in some semblance of logic. But debating Progs and Dinos makes one look as serious as if he had agreed to a debate a toddler. What's Jon Stewart's trademark response to any conservative point? Nambla, Nambla, Nambla. Sort of precursor to 9-9-9. Why debate Progs at all, unless Pee Wee Herman is invited to participate and say gotcha, gotcha, gotcha? Or Colmes or Maher are invited to smirk asinine? Does anyone on Maher's show ever follow any point logically, beyond smirk value? A Prog wil never, never accept a challenge to differentiate the logical validity of his point. When it's not jokes, it's ridicule. Progs themselves are easy enough to ridicule. But someone needs to be the adult. Too bad we can't see debates among panels of Conservative Americans. That would lead to solutions. Not much entertainment value there. Maybe Conservatives need toddler Progs like parents need children. Problem is, the kids have outgrown their britches and failed to launch.

From A.T. -
Re: " The great majority of their arguments hail faithfully from a constitutional locus"

Paul has served meritiriously to raise consciousness regarding the use of the Fed to promote an NWO that is decidedly contrary to liberty for the masses and instead bent on confining them to a socialist plantation. On that issue, no other candidate has performed as well. Problem is, Paul utterly fails to defend innate correlates. Why doesn't he recognize the need to defend America's borders? To protect against the swamping of illiterates steeped in socialistic conditioning? Well, not being a full throated cannibal, he can't get in line for EZ bucks from disloyal, sociopathic billionaires. So he fights his main battle and accepts funding and support from as many other sources as he can, many of them zany (truthers, libertines, whatever). From that light, he never had a chance. However, his work should clear enough muck to make way for his son to receive some significant post in the coming administration. We're going to get a moderate President. That's better than a sellout to cannibals pretending to be spreading wealth. I recognize that's not good enough, but that only means the push to decentralize Big Brother must go on, to put more intelligent and decent decentralizers in posts of significance. I hope Rand Paul will flesh out and correct his father's liberty-conserving positions. Conservers of liberty should: Defend America. Work to prohibit nukes for nuts. Exercise smarter trade with cannibal, communist, and fanatic nations. Curtail libertine use of fed law to impose anti-morality nationwide. And raise consciousness! Otherwise, America will fall to 1 percent cadres of hydrophobic cannibals, sociopaths, libertines, and idiots.

From A.T. -- Re: "the deconstruction of the American economy is a consequence, not a cause, of our fundamental problem, which is moral."


Well, the foundation of Western Civ is the family. As Big Bro assumes the right to replace the family, or to favor those who hate and want to replace the family, Western Civ will fall. The problem is not Big Gov. The problem is Big Bro. There's a difference. There will always be Big Gov, much as there will always be air, choices, and the feelings of others to consider. Gov cannot be avoided, but power to make choices can be decentralized. Still, there needs to be an assimilated base from which to decentralize choices. Infants are not born ready to make responsible decisions. They must learn, either from Big Bro as proxy for know-it-all, libertine-cannibal owners, or from families. Libs often argue entitlement to have equal protection enFORCED for every conceivable social relationship for raising the next generation. They want to use centralized gov force to shake down the foundation of Western Civ. Many poorly-raised children simpy never grow up, but they have no lack of confidence that they know best. A virulent 1 percent of them can bring down all decency and freedom, unless the consciousness of the society at large is raised and assimilated to revere human freedom and dignity. Presently, too many revere entitlement to an equal spread of pleasure and wealth. They believe they are owed, and they are fond to say you can't legislate morality. Evidently, however, you can legislate an equal spread of pleasure and wealth. Indeed, you can make money out of thin air. For awhile, anyway.

I suspect precise notions of some measured truths, and especially many moral truths, become fuzzy as the cones of experience that happen to come upon them vary in what they share in respect of perspective, context, and purpose. Relative sequence, location, age, attraction, repulsion, and indifference flux, rather than remain fixed as seeming either one thing-in-itself or another. My point is that information, interpretation, potential, substance, and experience can be modeled as being digital in a TRIVALENT sense of being relatively charged (positive or negative or neutral), but BIVALENT (black or white, or true or false) in an INFERIOR sense, with regard to how they happen to be processed within unfolding, fluxing, entangled, trivalent cones of perspective, context, and eventually-related purpose.
.
I prefer to model the logic of the cosmos as being PRIMARILY charged Trivalent. Only its measure under such charge is subject to being related and analyzed in Bivalent terms (or objectified truth equations). Only as two or more happen to adopt, identify with, and share a cone-of-perspective, logos-of-context, and identification-of-purpose, can they communicate in relative confidence about that which happens to be measurable among them within that cone. I would model that there is a reconciling SOURCE of truth and purpose. However, unfolding particulars cannot be quantitatively measured against IT. IT's relation is only to be intuited --- qualitatively, respectfully, humbly, receptively, empathetically.
.
I suspect much despair and strife could be reduced were modelers of morality to become less literalistically and materialistically certain of their intrusive dogmas, whether vaunted as theocratic or atheistic. Even so, some level of respect for an Empathetic Reconciler, whether conscious or subconscious, seems essential to sustain decent civilization against sociopaths, party-down narcissists, non-serious know-it-all Leftist jokesters and ridiculers, and wannabe scientific poseurs. In that general respect, there abides worthwhile truth that can be shared in the language of many myths.

Obama does not want a U.S. military to defend U.S. liberty! He wants a world military to install a world wide plantation system, quite like a sharia run caliphate. EVERYTHING he does is part and parcel of his jihad in respect of that goal. Dar al Obummer. Everyone is equal, except Friends of Obummer are more equal than others. All sociopaths who would profit bow to the prickly pear to which he bows. What a circle: Obummer-Chicom-NoKo-Chavez-Whackjob, round and round the prickly pear they dance. America? Fuggedabouit.
