Recently Scotland apologized to people who practice homosexual behavior for historical laws which criminalized that behavior in the distant past.

The story is at:  https://ca.news.yahoo.com/scotland-apologizes-gay-men-historical-convictions-153855710.html

My initial response to the headline is that I wasn’t aware Scotland had recently convicted anyone of homosexual behavior. Why apologize to people who have never been directly affected for actions done by people who are all deceased to people who are all deceased?

Oh, yeah, because politically correct people hate the West, including the self-guilty, politically correct current leadership of Scotland.

This leads me to a great point:  It’s ironic when people with blind populism condemn their forebears for their forebears’ blind populism. And the biggest irony is that usually the faults of the blind populisms across generations are related. You know, like how the active racism of today (anti-white) condemns racism in the past that no one alive today has ever been involved with (anti-black, in the case of the long past British and American chattel slavery).

The same principle also applies to how the active religious populism of today (pagan metaphysical naturalism) seeks to condemn the active religious populism of yesteryear (pagan monarchical application of Judeo Christian concepts).

True Judeo Christian morality upholds the non-fault rights of individuals in their own private homes.  Judeo Christian morality is the very reason modern populists are, in this case erroneously, condeming Judeo Christian morality.  The condemnation is based on a mis-application of Judeo Christian sentiment in the past by what was then still a historically pagan, monarchical society. 

And now the same paganism revamped with modern terms such as “multiculturalism” and “tolerance” is seeking, just as it sought to condemn individuals based on private actions in private homes in the past, to strip all people today – including those who practice homosexual behavior – of individual rights to life, liberty and property.  Rights which originated with Genesis 1:28 in common law.

So blind populism is still violating people’s rights.  Blind populism is still the problem.

It’s tragic that a bedroom community of San Antonio experienced today a death toll almost half of that which occurred in the city of Chicago just last month. The 53 deaths in Chicago, while less than the mass shooting in Vegas, go largely unaddressed by the left leaning national media. Chicago’s worst monthly death toll this year, June, exceeded the Vegas shooting toll by 27 souls lost. Again, this is almost never addressed by the left because I’m convinced the thinkers in media care more about symbolism and socialism – and the disarming of the citizenry necessary to impose socialism – than they care about the actual lives involved. Of course this is rationalized to the point of convincing one’s self it’s for other, nobler reasons. But when push comes to shove I believe it boils down to cold, hard logic for them. What they believe is the greatest good for the greatest number of people.

Socialism in the former Soviet Union took tens of millions of it’s own citizen’s lives in “peace” time. It’s ironic that almost 20% of millennials today view the Soviet Union favorably, and many more view Communism in general favorably. They’ve come to this under the socialist teachings of leftist educators such as former Communist terrorist Bill Ayers who was a primary contributor to common core, and Howard Zinn who started the Marxist apocryphal anti-American history movement which dictates most of the contents of school history texts today, etc.

This really is a values issue. Many of those in leadership on the left who want gun control don’t truly believe in morality apart from class warfare. They believe God is unknowable, or even that belief is God is some kind of tragic psychosis. In the end they cannot condemn murder apart from some form of arbitrary rationalization. Who is to say that will to power isn’t noble, even if the one wielding power has to “crack a few eggs” to “make an omelette”. Isn’t that survival of the fittest?

Well, I have a solution to the problem of mass shootings in America these days.

1. Bring back voluntary recitation of the Regent’s Prayer in public schools every day

2. Bring back the pledge of allegiance in public schools every day

3. Bring back voluntary posting of the Ten Commandments in public school rooms

4. Immediately stop all welfare programs which reward or encourage fatherlessness in poor communities until such time as the programs are amended to encourage two parent homes with a father and a mother. Having a father and a mother in the home is the number one indicator of future mental and financial success for children, and a number one indicator of future adherence to the law

5. Immediately do away with the Howard Zinn “history from below” (i.e., anti-American socialist propaganda) model of history in public schools, and re-implement true American history and civics. Teach the founding principles.

6. Teach money management in schools. Every child should come out of their education with a strong dislike of debt and a strong affinity towards hard work and saving

7. Do away with draconian gun laws and encourage hunting and knowledge of self-defense. This goes hand in hand with encouraging having a father in the home

In short, we need to go back and do the things we’ve done in previous generations before leftists did away with Judeo Christian morality, the same leftists who today act shocked that people are getting used to hearing of mass murders in our communities.

Recently progressive comedian Bill Maher expressed the view that progressives have won the culture war, and took the same opportunity to refer to the Bible as a “dumb book”:

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/05/23/bill-maher-tells-twitter-liberals-to-calm-down-the-culture-war-is-over-and-we-won/

Here’s the reality:  Judeo Christian values have been winning the culture wars for 2,000 years and show no sign of stopping.

The Christian church is, “an anvil that has worn out many hammers,” and Judeo Christian values (the Ten Commandments) are the basis of the modern Western understanding of ethics and law.  If you don’t believe that, try going out and killing someone in the U.S. for any reason other than self defense.

The Roman Empire tried to redefine marriage.  It didn’t last.  I mean the Roman Empire.

Every generation rejects the values of previous generations and thinks, “Ah, this time, we’ve finally gotten it right!”  But the only consistent value systems that have lasted over centuries are systems directly tied to major world religions or religious philosophies.  And only one of those value systems gave birth to the highest level of individual liberty and prosperity in the history of the world.  It eliminated slavery.  It gave women power to vote and represent themselves legally.  It wound up saving Europe and the world from expansionist tyrannies on three separate occasions.

I’m not talking about enlightenment Humanism – on the contrary, Humanism originally sought to eliminate some “races” through eugenics and to this day tries to divide people into arbitrary groups, plundering one for the profit of another, but really taking the money to enrich it’s own leaders.

No, what led directly to a 5,000 year leap was the idea of constitutional republic grounded in Judeo Christian values.  It was Christians who believed that God is separate from creation and that nature could be looked at and studied objectively apart from myth.  It was Christians who popularized the radical idea that secular governments should not impose a state religion.  It was Christians who led the effort to abolish slavery.  It was Christians who won women the right to vote (the fight was led by the Women’s Christian Temperance Union).  And it was Christians who led the civil rights struggle of the 50’s and 60’s.

Everywhere Humanism and subsequent collectivism has been tried, it has led to servitude and poverty.  Individualism and Judeo Christian values have led to freedom and prosperity.  Most people who grow up in the U.S. simply cannot appreciate how special and rare this is in the history of the world.

Sadly, progressives like Maher want to muzzle free speech and attack people who don’t agree with them.  They have declared war on America and American values.  They want to enforce collectivism and uniformity of thought under the threat of law.  They want to put their fellow citizens in tyranny under social planners that wield the atheist equivalent of “Divine Right of Kings”.

They are the ones trying to drag this country backwards.
