Elites Against Freedom
I mentioned earlier the soft-spot that many elites/academics have for communism. Well, Michael Barone makes the case that many of these elites are actively working against western civilization as covert enemies so to speak.
These are the ideas that have been transmitted over a long generation by the elites who run our universities and our schools, and who dominate our mainstream media. They teach an American history with the good parts left out and the bad parts emphasized. We are taught that some of the Founding Fathers were slaveholders — and are left ignorant of their proclamations of universal liberties and human rights. We are taught that Japanese-Americans were interned in World War II — and not that American military forces liberated millions from tyranny. To be sure, the great mass of Americans tend to resist these teachings. By the millions they buy and read serious biographies of the Founders and accounts of the Greatest Generation. But the teachings of our covert enemies have their effect.
Curiously, I was just thinking last night that part of what has been ripped out of our education is not just the common values and history, but the common vision of the future that used to define our nations. This common vision lead us in the same direction. Now that has been removed and replaced with the lets bash western civilisation theme, which has no real vision for creation, just one for destruction of western civilisation. "Without vision, the people perish"
