First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blinds the foolish.
Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega-preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo-Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.
For the whole article there are many sources and I am linking to one above. I love the clarity with which Stanislav Mishin wrote about America’s dilemma of foolishness. We have sold our birthright of Representative Republic form of government for a mess of pottage to the world in general and the highest bidder generally. Esau did as much to Isaac, as many greedy and unrepentant sinners have done before and since. Students in China laughed at Tim Geithner the other day when he claimed we are solvent and their investments with us are secure. America has fallen into mediocrity and disrespect and does not even know it.
