The Late Great United States of America
It is the year 2318. At the podium, a professor is about to give a lecture on World History. Let's listen in.
This year marks the 300th anniversary of the fall of the Republic of the United States of America. The United States was the greatest civilization in the history of the world. Today, I will address how America fell. Next week, we will look back at the story that led up to America's demise.
The United States was founded in 1776, and it lasted for 242 years. At the time of its demise, the United States had the oldest Constitution in use in the world. It was the first country in which the citizens governed themselves; where people were free to create any kind of life for themselves that they were able to make with their own intelligence, motivation, prudence, and effort—regardless of their station of birth. Before the United States, Kings and Queens governed people with an iron fist, and the people had little say in the result of their labors; and little freedom of speech. People were born into a certain station of life, and they generally stayed there. One would have to go all the way back to ancient Rome in order to find another successful republic. Its fall was equally swift, and it was just as astonishing.
THE FOUNDING FATHERS
The United States was founded by the most remarkable group of men ever assembled. Together, they wrote a Declaration of Independence, a Constitution, and a Bill of Rights. The republic they founded was based on the principle that people had rights granted by God—not by other men—to govern themselves, with individual Liberty, Free Enterprise, and without interference by government. It was so successful that the idea was copied by nation states around the world.
People moved to the United States by the tens of millions from around the world—even on homemade rafts across shark infested oceans—to have a chance to participate in the greatest experiment in freedom ever attempted by mankind; leaving behind their home lands and the people they knew and loved.
The people of the United States were the most religious on Earth, and they thanked God daily for their abundance. Their land was covered with churches built to honor God, and to come together regularly as communities to worship.
These Americans proved to be by far the most loving and charitable people that have ever appeared on Earth. As their material wealth grew, they sent missionaries with food and medicine around the globe to share with the less fortunate and less industrious.
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL
America became by far the most wealthy and powerful people in the history of the world. But they shared their wealth at a high level never seen before; and they used their power not to conquer—but to free the conquered and the enslaved by the hundreds of millions. The voluntary transfers of wealth from Americans to other Americans and to other peoples of the world were in the trillions of dollars. Nothing like this had ever happened before in the history of our world.
The incredible wealth of America was earned by sheer will and ingenuity—made possible by freedom, right to private property, and free market capitalism. It was a meritocracy of the first rank, which motivated human beings as never before, who knew that what they produced was theirs to keep. Under these circumstances the people of The United States created inventions that improved the quality of life immeasurably for people everywhere in the world. By the time the country was disbanded, most everything considered modern and civilized had been created by Americans—but shared with others (or emulated) around the globe.
The achievements of Americans produced advancements that humankind could not have dreamed about before America came to be. They created automobiles, airplanes, appliances, and spacecraft that traveled to the Moon. They made astounding advances in medicine, law, sciences, music, nuclear energy, communications, other technologies, and invented the Internet. By contrast, we today are just emerging from what some call the "The Second Dark Ages." And by now, you must be wondering, "What happened?"
The system in America rewarded individual, or corporate, or communal, achievement in all fields. Naturally, since human beings are of very unequal intelligence, motivation, discipline, and virtue, the achievements were not equally achieved—and therefore the rewards were not equally distributed. To a shallow observer this may appear to be a bad thing, but it was in fact the beauty of this system that led to all that unbelievable prosperity. Human nature being what it is, there were people who were envious of the achievers. A group of intellectuals arose determined to lead them in revolution.
These intellectuals called themselves Progressives. They were in fact Socialists, or Communists. But because of the worldwide failure of Socialism by the Nazis of Germany, for instance; and of Communism by the Russians, Chinese, Cambodians, et al., which resulted in the extermination of well over 100 million human beings, these intellectuals adopted the name "Progressives." After all, it has the word "progress" in it—and everybody is for progress. This was only the beginning of their twisting of language to make "up" mean "down" or "out" to mean "in"—but we'll circle back to that later.
The Progressives were nearly all Atheists or Agnostics. But most of them pretended to be Christians in order to win elections. Some claimed allegiance to some vague concept of God, but were speaking falsely. The key aspect to understand about Progressives is that they did not believe in any such thing as objective truth. Therefore lying came naturally to them. Those who tried to save America for all of mankind lied sometimes too—all people lie—but their lies (and other moral shortcomings) proved far more damaging; their lies opened them up to charges of hypocrisy. But take care to note; there is an enormous difference between lying as a moral failure, and lying as the basis for a political movement.
The Progressives had figured out something that gave them two important advantages. First, to have no moral standards means you can never be a hypocrite. Second, it means that a lot of people with wicked desires in their hearts will vote for you. In truth, however, we know it is better to have moral standards—even knowing all will fall short of them—than to have none, which leads to moral anarchy.
Unable to take control by elections or democracy, Progressives had to resort to nefarious means to achieve their ends. Their ends were that every person on the planet should have an equal share of all wealth; and an equal share of all health care, housing, food, education—all the fruits of the labors of the entire world should be shared equally. Their motto was that ANY means justified these ends. The Progressive theorist Saul Alinsky paved the way, founding strategies such as cloaking oneself in phony patriotism to gain power.
The Progressives hated America. They hated its freedom, its values, and they especially hated Christianity. What the Progressives had to do is called "deconstruction." This means to deconstruct the true meaning of the world and human life. To deconstruct belief systems, customs, traditions, and any authority that might compete with state authority. They had to destroy the American family, American Religion, and American Business. These were the three huge obstacles to their utopian dreams, and they needed to overcome these impediments in order for their views to have any chance of acceptance. And this they set out to do with a vengeance. We will explore how this was done in the next lecture, but for today let's move on to how the Progressives finally achieved their goal and destroyed America in 2016.
PROGRESSIVES TAKE CONTROL
The Progressives took control of America in 2009. They immediately began a gradual takeover of the manufacturing, insurance, banking, and mortgage industries, as well as the stock market of the country. Early in the year they flexed their muscles by closing hundreds of car dealerships that belonged to their opposition--known as Conservatives (those who desired to conserve the American Way of life). This was a trial balloon to gauge resistance.
The first year in power they printed a trillion dollars and gave it to their political backers, primarily funneling it to unions and other subversive groups, which they called "stimulus." Printing this unprecedented amount of new money led to a destabilization of the economy and created yet another crisis—just what the Progressives wanted to further implement their plans. Anyone who opposed these astounding machinations was called a racist.
PROGRESSIVES CONSOLIDATE POWER
2010 was a huge year for the Progressive Movement. They took control over the health care industry in America—17% of the entire economy. Soon came rationing of health care by the government. This type of power is always politicized in the end. That laid the foundation for their eventual plan, which was to deny medical care to any anti-Progressive person. Now the Progressives had the very life and death of the people held within their hands.
The Progressives then put a woman on the Supreme Court who had sued the United States Army during wartime. Next, they took control of University education by taking command of the funding process by which students could attain a university degree. They would use this power to deny a college education to anyone who did not agree with their dogmas—all the while villainously claiming that their only motivation was to increase "diversity." Anyone who protested was publicly branded a racist by Progressives.
Also announced in 2010 was a requirement that all citizens must volunteer for a mandatory 2 years of civil service. The purpose of this obligation was to assess the political beliefs of the citizens. Assessments were accomplished by the utilization of a one month training course on "right-thought," otherwise known as "political correctness" and "multiculturalism." Within a few years, those giving the wrong answers were sent to reeducation camps, similar to those used by the idols of Progressives: Chairman Mao of China, and Josef Stalin of the USSR. The only way to "graduate" from these camps was to convince the secret police that you firmly believed in the Progressive ideology.
The Progressives next nationalized the hated pharmaceutical companies. They convinced the public that this was necessary because the companies were greedy and oppressive. In truth, it was so they could control people's medications. By this time, 30% of the nation was on anti-depressants, and 90% of the nation on some sort of medication. Anyone opposed to Progressivism was denied their happy pills. People addicted to drugs, suffering from withdrawal, will go a long ways to get relief.
The Progressive government used taxpayer funds—mostly generated by non-Progressives who worked for a living—to fund the "National Endowment for the Arts," which was used to create propaganda. In addition, the government took control of most newspapers in the country, ostensibly to save the "Free Press," but in actuality to use taxes to prop up failing companies that were then used as propaganda organs.
But the most incredibly bold moves came in 2014. The American people had slowly begun to catch on to what was happening to their Liberty and Freedom, and it had become obvious that Progressives would lose power in the fall elections of 2014. Suddenly, that summer, the Progressives declared that the 14 million people who had illegally snuck across America's borders were now citizens and all were welcomed to vote in the fall elections. Of course, previously compiled research had shown that given this right nearly all of them would vote for the Progressive Party, what with their promises to confiscate wealth Americans had earned and give it to them for their votes.
They also changed American law to grant the right to vote to 4 million convicted felons, whom they knew would vote for Progressives by 100 to 1 (Progressive ideology taught that there was no such thing as a criminal, merely people forced to commit crimes because of the oppressiveness of American society).
The Progressives weren't even close to done. A month before the elections, they passed a law making Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia the 51st and 52nd states of America. Publicly, they said it was for "inclusiveness," but history shows its real purpose was to stack the Congress with 7 more Progressive Representatives and 4 more Progressive Senators. The Electoral College was also eliminated, so as to diminish opposition from what was called "The Heartland." Anyone who spoke out against these moves was officially denounced by the government as a racist.
Progressives pulled of one the greatest scams of all time when they convinced many Americans that the Earth was warming—not because it always does warm and cool cyclically, but because of American energy consumption. They used this hoax to take control of all energy in the United States—to save the people, of course. They would in later years use this power to deny electricity, gasoline, and then water to any people who were not Progressives. Naturally, as this went on, fewer and fewer people opposed them. It is not surprising what compromises people will make to survive. The takeover of the energy sector involved a friend of the American President who received ten trillion dollars per year to manage a program called Cap and Trade, which he distributed to Socialist labor unions and foreign countries. But first it was used to bankrupt the so-called 'Red States," which is where the opposition to Progressives was the strongest. Their earnings were confiscated and given to states that supported the Progressives, known as "Blue States.
PRESIDENT FOR LIFE
In 2011 the government supported the building of an Islamic Mosque at the most sacred spot in the country, Ground Zero. It was claimed to be a show of "Tolerance."
Later that same year, the Progressives announced that the United States would, from then on, have open borders. The entire world was invited to come and share America's wealth. All that came would have cradle-to-grave support from American taxpayers. Twenty million Mexican peasants swarmed over the border in the first year, along with twenty million more from Central and South America. Most of these immigrants were illiterate and unskilled, but their forty million extra votes for the Progressive agenda meant that the Progressives would rule forever.
It was a mere formality when they cancelled the elections of 2018; it was a foregone conclusion they would win. This was justified by stating that the cost of elections—millions of dollars—would be given to the poor newcomers instead. What a great show of kindness it seemed to be. Anyone who spoke out against open borders was required to wear a yellow armband with the word "racist" on it.
The Progressives then announced free abortions for all, and from that day on every pregnant woman was required to report to "Planned Parenthood." The organization’s very name defines the essence of Progressive deception, since "parenthood" was not what was being "planned." The "counselors" at Planned Parenthood made sure the Progressives could exercise population control. All doctors and nurses were required to perform abortions, regardless of conscience or beliefs. By 2016, "abortions" were legalized—and strongly encouraged—for any children who had not yet reached their second birthday (since they were not yet fully aware of themselves, and therefore merely animals, or "potential" human beings).
There was a resistance movement called the "Tea Party," and members of the movement came from all over the country. These were mostly grandmas and grandpas who believed in the America of old. The Progressives banned the Tea Party as a "Clear and Present Danger" to public order. Large government rewards were issued for anyone who would report their neighbors as being against the regime. Use of the American flag was prohibited, as the Progressives had deemed it a "symbol of oppression."
THE BEGINNING OF THE END
In 2012, the government announced that from that point on all professions would be represented by at least 50% women, 3% Asians, 12% blacks, 25% Hispanics, and no more than 63% whites. Needless to say, the quality of brain surgeons, airline pilots, and nuclear physicists dropped precipitously in the years to follow. Only professional athletes, singers, and dancers were excluded from quotas. Entertainment, the opium of the masses, had to remain at top quality and be provided by those in tune with Progressive ideals.
In the fall of 2012, several journalists and television personalities who opposed Progressivism mysteriously turned up missing. Their bodies were never found. The company they worked for, Fox News, was banned by the government as subversive and racist. The government shockingly seized control of radio and the internet.
Marriage was eliminated in steps. First, people were granted the right to marry others of their own sex. Then, polygamy was legalized, followed closely by polyamory. The Supreme Court, by then packed with Progressives, as Conservative members of the Court went missing (their bodies were never found), ruled that any restrictions on marriage were unconstitutional due to penumbras and emanations they saw in their daydreams. Eventually, the Progressives explained that marriage was an outdated institution altogether.
In 2013, Christianity was officially banned as racist and homophobic. Churches were confiscated to warehouse the new populations that continued to stream into the country. Only if a church declared themselves Progressive—meaning they did not actually believe in God, and agreed to promote abortion, homosexuality, and the so-called "Social Gospel"—were they allowed to exist. All Bibles were confiscated and burned. Anyone who fought these changes was not allowed to work, and forced to live off of what they could scavenge from other people's garbage cans.
Some of the strongest opposition to Progressive aims came from the military. In a brilliant stroke, this problem was solved by splitting the armed forces in half. One half was made into an internal army, assigned to control the civilian populace in America; the other half was put under the control of the United Nations—including all nuclear armaments. Iran and Libya were chosen to head the UN Armaments committee.
In 2014, every American was required to register all of their firearms with the government. This condition was but a pretext to banning all firearms the following year. Refusal to turn in any guns you possessed meant a death sentence. Sadly, this resulted in an enormous crime wave, because the disarmed, law-abiding citizens could no longer defend themselves against gangs of criminals—who still had guns. Their guns had always been illegal.
Also in 2014, the Progressive government announced that all Americans would now receive equal pay. To enforce this, the government nationalized every business in the country, and proclaimed a cashless society. All money flowed to the government electronically; and flowed from the government into debit card accounts of people who found favor in its eyes. Each adult now worked for the government, and each worker was to be paid $50,000 per year, regardless of what type of work—if any—they performed. We know now that in fact government workers and union members received double that amount, and members of the Progressive Party lived as billionaires. But this was kept secret through government propaganda and media control.
In a move reminiscent of another Marxist Black Liberation Leader, Robert Mugabe of Rhodesia, word was passed along to the poor communities that they should seize all of the farmland in America. All they had to do was squat on it and use it as they saw fit. Any farmers who opposed would be shipped to reeducation camps to cure them of racism. The rationale given by the government for this was that it was obvious to Progressives that it was not losing the land they had worked for fifty years that bothered the farmers; it was having their land taken by non-white people that had to be the problem. Unfortunately, similar to Rhodesia, the United States went from being the food supplier to much of the world, to not being able to feed itself, as the squatters lacked one important ingredient: they didn't know how to grow things.
Next, the poor were secretly trained by Community Organizers, such as the notorious ACORN, to waltz into any home over 1,000 square feet, forcibly evict those living there, and take the homes for themselves. After all, the enormous influx of immigrants was living in squalor. No family was worthy of living in more than 1,000 square feet of space, while others lived in shacks. Unfortunately, a lot of rape, beatings, and killings occurred, but the government thought it an acceptable sacrifice for the good of the "Collective." They put a great name on it: Social Justice. Any who resisted were physically branded on the forehead by a hot iron with a big letter "R" for racist.
Private property was abolished. The Progressives announced that Social Justice could only be achieved if "the people" owned everything in the United States, but their definition of “the people” meant the government. Of course, the choicest mansions went to top party members (called comrades).
In 2017, the Progressives removed all mention (or symbols) of God and Christianity from America’s public buildings, monuments, documents, and seals. They justified this action by claiming that any mention of God in public had to have the opprobrium of the government, or it would violate "Separation of Church and State." Their methodical removal of all crosses from every cemetery in America proved to be a daunting task, but it got done; they made it a priority. A few old veterans fussed about the thousands of crosses uprooted at Arlington National Cemetery, but they were silenced by some well placed bullets. Finally, came the destruction of all historical sites in America that were related to its Founders; they proclaimed them to be monuments of racism.
Also in 2017, all Americans were required to have a VeriChip implanted in their wrists. Any who refused could not buy, sell, or work. Little did they know that since 2014 their televisions had been wired by the Progressives to monitor the speech inside of their homes. Many were taken away in the middle of the night for daring to question Progressive ideals in what they thought were private conversations. The mass graves have only now been found. This was justified at the time on the grounds that they were either racists or homophobes.
THE SAD END OF AMERICA
Finally, in 2018, the United States was disbanded. The Progressives proclaimed that they were "citizens of the world." The United Nations was given control of America. Soon thereafter, the American President was named President of the World, and a new World Government was implemented. All people in the whole world were to now receive a salary of $10,000 per year; from molecular biologists to Borneo tribesmen (Some tribesmen were confused as they had no banks and had never seen a check. They used them for toilet paper. The world government bureaucracy kept mailing them their checks anyway). Finally, the world was equal.
But the world came to a standstill as people no longer had any reason to work, create, discover, or innovate. So, they were forced to work as slaves of the state. The Second Dark Ages soon followed.
History was rewritten to cover the crimes of the Progressives. One hundred million Americans perished. We know that the Progressives were working closely with the Chinese and Russian governments, with the goal of bringing down the United States of America—the only obstacle to a New World Communist Government. We are just now learning what happened as we undergo the Second Renaissance.
Next time we will discuss how the groundwork was laid before 2009 that enabled the Progressives to ruin civilization and plunge us into the Second Dark Ages. Questions?
