Culture War
Many from both the right and the left bemoan the state of the American culture today. Whether it is the lack of positive images in TV, movies, music, politicians, sports figures, police in schools and more, freedom and morality are discussed as being in conflict with each other. Benjamin Franklin once wrote on the subject: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need for masters." This should ring true to you today as we debate not only our eroding culture, but the role of government in our lives. Are culture and the need for more government control more connected than we realize?

American destruction underway, a continuing list

from The Gray Area:
6/22/20: updated 9/28/20
Jacobin 2020. Think the French Revolution. France's attempt at copying the American Revolution, but it went terribly wrong. Ended up in the tyranny of Napoleon. Is that what we are watching evolve before our eyes in 2020? The destruction of the American Revolution in favor of (French) 'tbd' tyranny? A few quotes from the 'protests': "I'm not here to peacefully protest. I'm here to disrupt until my demands are met. You cannot rebuild until you break it al the way down. Respond to the demands of the people or prepare to e met with any mean necessary." - Jaiden Grayson, BLM.Antifa leader of the Seattle autonomous zone known as CHOP. Andy Ngo video, 6/17/20 "We heard you. You're right. We agree with you, protestors ... You won. You won! You accomplished your goal." - Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), ordering all 500 NY police forces to be 'redesigned' to satisfy 'communities' or lose state funding. NBC News, 6/13/20 "Yes, we mean literally abolish the police." - NYT op-ed, 6/12/20 Below is a list of history, art and other staples of American culture that are being destroyed before our eyes. This was also done during the French Revolution. Then replaced with new history, sculpture and art to match the tyrannical leadership's new found priorities. And we just sit and watch! Try to read through this list and not scratch you head or hit yourself in the forehead with astonishment at just how crazy this all is. Will we continue to watch until America is all gone? We will continue to add to this list, unfortunately, for as long as necessary, or as long as the protesting 'cancel culture' allows.
