Political Quiz

POLITICAL SCIENCE QUIZ ABOUT POLITICAL IDEOLOGIES

I recently came across a Political Science book that was written in 1958. It was quite popular at the time, though it has now largely disappeared. On Amazon it is listed as the 29,348th Best Seller today. So I guess it hasn't completely evaporated. But I had never heard of it and I thought myself pretty well read on the subjects of History, Political Science, and Political Ideologies.

The book outlines the Political Ideologies of a particular group of intellectuals. The book details the strategies of their Political Party as to how they plan to fundamentally transform America, slowly and gradually, one step at a time.

I thought it might be fun to give you some of the major points of this strategy and provide a one-question Political Party Quiz to see how many of you can rightly discern whose plan it was. I have left out many parts that would have immediately given away the correct answer.

In the next capsule are some of the main parts of the strategy of one Political Party in America of 1958. Here we go!

POLITICAL PARTY QUIZ

1. Feminize the American public through the schools and media.

2. Disarm American citizens.

3. Change immigration laws so as to import tens of millions of "people of color" from the Third World. Institute an open-borders policy if possible. Force integration upon the populace and use multicultural education to denigrate white Western civilization in the United States.

4. Work to give the World Court full judicial authority over America and individual Americans.

5. Work to coerce the United States to give up the Panama Canal.

6. Teach young people that rebellion and revolution are the avenues to hope and change in America. Teach students that they should become community organizers and foment violence among groups of "oppressed victims" to fundamentally transform the social, economic, and political systems of America through the use of force.

7. Separate children from the influence of their parents as much as possible. Teach them that their parents are backward, prejudiced, and bigoted. Teach students that only by ignoring their parents and any church influences can we build a better, more just world.

8. Work through education and the media to belittle and ridicule the traditional American family. Encourage rampant promiscuity and work for laws that facilitate easy divorce.

9. Grant social agencies the power to have citizens arrested. Spread propaganda that teaches that all behavioral problems including criminal actions are not the fault of the perpetrators but merely psychiatric disorders caused by the society in which they live. Embed the idea that only psychiatrists can understand anti-social behavioral problems and only they can treat them effectively.

10. Gain control of the labor unions in America and unionize the public employees who work for the taxpayers (the government).

11. Work to give the federal government complete authority over all parts of American culture, especially over public education and social services.

12. Ridicule traditional American culture in all its forms. Obfuscate the true history of America. Rewrite history to make America the world's bad guy—oppressive, exploitive, and not worth defending.

13. Denigrate the Founding Fathers of America in the eyes of students. Proclaim the Founding Fathers as not only nothing special but in fact as evil slave-owners and selfish aristocrats who cared about nothing but themselves.

14. Demean the American Constitution in the minds of students by portraying it as an old-fashioned anachronism, out-of-step with postmodern times, inadequate to solve the problems America faces today, and as a document that gets in the way of our true calling: to become citizens of the world.

15. Work to prohibit prayer or any and all free expression of the Christian Faith in the public schools first and then eventually in the public square. Use the excuse that Free Expression of the Christian Faith anywhere in America but in ones own home or church violates "separation of church and state."

16. Gain control over as many churches as possible and replace the Christian Faith, which is based on Revelation and Reason, with the "Social Gospel". Teach that the Bible is a phony book written by men to oppress women, children, and others. Teach that an enlightended, modern person has no need for Church, Religion, or God.

17. Use the public schools and the media to persuade the American public that all forms of sexual deviancy and perversion are in fact normal, natural, and healthy. Promiscuity is to be promoted as the road to personal happiness.

18. Destroy all traditional American standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity through all forms of communication and media.

19. Work to repeal any laws that prohibit obscenity by proclaiming them to be merely a tool to suppress free speech and the free press.

20. Infiltrate museums of art and take over positions of art criticism to promote ugly, repulsive, meaningless art.

21. Deprecate all forms of artistic expression by replacing beauty with sacrilege. Eliminate all beauteous art from public spaces and substitute shapeless, awkward, meaningless forms.

22. Gain control over all forms of media for propaganda purposes.

23. Infiltrate the key positions of the media, so as to control book reviews, editorial stances, and marketing departments.

24. Take control of the public school curriculum and textbooks. Use them to promote what we will call "social justice" and other propaganda. Lower standards so as to "dumb down" the citizens of tomorrow. Get control of teachers' labor unions. Rewrite textbooks to include the political ideology of the party.

25. Use the federal courts to weaken traditional American institutions by claiming that their activities constitute a violation of civil rights. We must eliminate the Right to Free Association.

26. Promote the United Nations as the only hope for mankind. Work to rewrite its charter and demand that it be set up as a one-world government to redistribute the wealth of the world. The United Nations must have its own independent armed forces.

Sounds pretty much like a lot of the policies that have been followed over here in Europe in the last few decades James, and look what a mess we are in! Very informative as usual

Hello, James,

Well, I aced the quiz.

However, my answer was based on the fact that the 26 "decrees" were contained in a Political Science book that was published in 1958.

Now if those same "decrees" were contained in a book that was published within the period of 1970 to the present, the correct answer would be quite different from the one that was correct in 1958.

Hint: The "new" correct answer is associated with asses.

SirDent 4 years ago

Well, James, I got the wrong answer on the quiz. I believe it is the right answer if taken in the more modern time we now love as feenix pointed out.

We are moving toward those points even now. The constitution declares a creator who created all men equal, but yet it is said these days that the founding fathers were not Christians. Just one small point in how things are being changed.

Your hubs always make me think. Thanks for giving me another headache. (JK)

Just had to come add this section of the Declaration of Independence. ((We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ))

Have we given the government consent to go in the direction they have us going now?


Charles James profile image

Charles James 4 years ago from Yorkshire, UK

The Declaration of Independence sounds Communist to me.

Once you accept that all men (not counting women, blacks and Native Americans of course) then one has to ask how society has permitted such gross inequality today.


SirDent 4 years ago

Those words come from the Declaration of Independence Charles. It was written to declare freedom from the tyrannical rule of the King of England at that time. Oddly enough, if you would read the whole thing, religion is never mentioned in it. A list of grievances against the king is listed, but nothing religious.

All men include woman also. You are trying to change things to fit your view. Maybe one of the points James made in this hub has skewed your vision.

SirDent— You are welcome, I guess, JK. :D

Sorry about the headache I caused you but I am glad I make you think. That is the purpose of this exercise.

54 of the 57 Founding Fathers were Christians and 3 were Deists.

Yes, the postmodern Atheist Marxists have embraced the "all men are equal" part but eschewed the "endowed by our Creator" part—which is the underlying point of the term.

Thank you, my friend, for coming to see my latest work.

I always appreciate your excellent comments.

SirDent— You ask a good question with your second comment, brother. In a way, we have given our approval for the things that have been legislated by Congress by our elected representatives. BUT . . . we have not given approval for the massive social engineering legislated by the unelected members of the Supreme Court. Nor have we approved of the majority of laws made in the last few decades—made by unelected bureaucrats and labeled "regulations." Eh?


James A Watkins profile image

James A Watkins 4 years ago from Chicago Author

Charles James— Well, my friend, I think you misunderstand what "All men are created equal" means. It means that we are equal in the eyes of our Creator and should be equal in the eyes of the law. It would be ludicrous to suppose it means human beings are equal in any other way. The only way to equalize outcomes of our lives is through tyranny that tramples liberty. If you think people are truly equal, line everybody in your town up tomorrow morning and have them run a 100 meter dash, or take a IQ test, or play a poker tournament. :D

But hey—I am well pleased to hear from you again. Thank you for visiting and commenting.

Sometimes there is a good reason to burn a book, and this one you have brought to awareness, would serve well as prominent fire starter material. It wreaks of communism, and pure brain stagnating garbage. What a waste of space if it is in a public library.

This is why I am not a fan of politics. I have always considered politics as having the potential of a dangerous rogue science. Good politics, and finding it can be as neat as searching for the best strawberries in a basket, if it does not harness the minds of humans as if humanity is considered to be nothing more than amiable life forms .

Thank you for the awareness, and the fresh air our minds need for the sake of flourishing.

I think because of you I have learned quite a lot about the nonsince of mind control. There are two very terrible kinds of rape. There is the horrible aggravated rape of a beautiful woman, and the slow , and devious ravaging of good human minds by ridiculous kinds of political intentions that go as far back as Hitler, and Stalin. HOW DARE SLIME BALLS TRY TO SNEAK INTO OUR BRAINS !

Your work helps us to see what goes on in the world behind closed doors.

God bless you precious brother, and your family in our Christmas season.

I had read the goals of the American Communist Party in 1963 a couple of years ago so this information was easily recognizable. The reality of how much of it has come to past and how hard Obama and company are working on other aspects of it are sobering to say the least yet far too many Americans are too blind to see what is happening to their country right under their noses. If Obama can buy enough time in office. A second term will be disasterous for America. Good stuff, Jim. WB

The book I got this information from is a very good book actually. It exposed the agenda of the Communist Party in America based on the very words of Communist Party leaders over time. The book is called "The Naked Communist."

But I see what you're saying. And I agree with you that politics is a dangerous rogue science. I love your analogy of the two kinds of rape—rapes of women and rapes of innocent minds. Well put!

Wizard of Whimsy— I know! Isn't it amazing how the Progressive Atheist Socialists parrot Adolf Hitler!? Of course, he was also an Atheist Socialist.

Look at how Progessives have stolen Hitler's ideas! Here are four quotes from Adolf that could just as well be from Saul Alinsky or Bill Ayres:

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

“It is not truth that matters, but victory.”

“The man who has no sense of history, is like a man who has no ears or eyes”

"Let me control the textbooks and I will control the state."

Wizard Of Whimsy 4 years ago from The Sapphire City

James A Watkins, your response is as addlepated as your jaundiced ideology. According to your "morality," Jesus was a socialist and crucified by the true-believers of his time—and they saw Jesus as an atheist.

A real Christian-American would be tolerant and accepting of other Americans and they wouldn't label others with unfair pejorative labels.

Believe it or not, I have had several other teachers tell me the same thing. Of course labor unions spring from Marxism so perhaps it is inevitable that unions are infected by such an horrible ideology—that left the 20th century littered with corpses in their failed utopias.

Wizard Of Whimsy— Jesus was no socialist, you nincompoop. It is so tiring hearing that satanic line over and over again—and always from people who don't believe in Christ.

Jesus said seek the Kingdom of God FIRST, then worry about your physical needs. Is that socialism? NO! Socialism is the replacement of God with the State! Every socialist government has been officially Atheistic.

Jesus told me and you to take care of the poor PERSONALLY. Did he ever say to slough off that responsibility to the government? NO! He said along with charity the most important thing you can do for a person is TELL THEM THE GOOD NEWS! Will Caesar do that? NO!

I am tolerant of all people. Who said I wasn't?

Merry Christmas, James!

Actually, I don't feel as if we are all equal under the law. Money rules in many cases. Well funded corporations are able to maintain a heavy duty legal team, easily able to out spend individuals. Poor folks, in trouble with the law, are less able to post bond or afford legal help than the well heeled. Not that this has anything to do with your quiz (100%, me) but going along with some of the comments.


James A Watkins profile image

James A Watkins 4 years ago from Chicago Author

Dolores Monet— Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

You are absolutely right in your comments. Of course, one tenet of Capitalism is that if a young person lives their life "right"—if they apply themelves to learning, if they stay off drug and alcohol addiction, if they learn a useful trade or skill, if they marry one person for life, if they save 10 percent of every dollar they earn, if they do not break the law, if they are a good employee or employer, if they nurture their children, if they do not live above their means, they are virtually guaranteed to have a good life with no worries—including legal fees if and when they might need them. :-)


Dolores Monet profile image

Dolores Monet 4 years ago from East Coast, United States

So true, but not all people who have trouble with the law are criminals. People are accused of crimes who did not commit them. Small business people can be sued by large corporations (such as the rash of cases where companies like Monsanto have gone after small farmers over patent infringement because seeds have blown over the fence). And no one is guaranteed to have a good life without any worries, no matter how well behaved they are. (But being sensible does help)
