Fellow internet pilgrims,
Why is discrimination so evil?
I think the first problem is that it gives weak minded people a feeling of power and superiority over other people. Usually there is some form of enslavement involved. Writing that differently, the weak minded people want to lower the class of one group of people below their class.
Often you hear things like, “‘They’ always do ____” and you can fill in the blank with about anything from ‘nothing’ to ‘bad things.’ I think you get the general idea.
So, why is there so much discrimination against traditional ‘America?’ I remember growing up and ‘Latinos’ telling me they did NOT want to be called ‘Mexican.’ “My family has always been from ‘Texas.’ And I do not want anyone insulting me and calling me a ‘Mexican.'”
Life has changed, and being called ‘Mexican’ is less of an insult, and more of an insult, than it used to be. Funny how those things happen.
And, yes, that is prejudice and discrimination.
But, why target ‘traditional America?’
No other value system in the history of mankind has made so many people rich, no other value system has brought so many people out of poverty, slavery, oppression.
And why do people who call themselves ‘American’ do most of the hating?
I think that there is one key difference in American culture not found in any other culture throughout history. It is not economic, although that was affected. It is not ‘family,’ although that has been attacked. It is not political, the greeks experimented with democracy over 2,000 years ago, and they may have had a better form of democracy.
So, if economic, social, and political dynamics of the American culture are not the cause of the radical hatred of America, what is?
“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.”
But, those are not the first words, these are:
People hate upon America, because America has been the greatest nation under God for two centuries, Christian men and women have built a wealth machine that has made politicians more powerful today than at any other time in history, they made business men and women richer than at any other time in history, and for a brief period in time that power and wealth made families and our society stronger. But, as the hatred of what was America has grown, the decline of American politics, economics, and even the family have become more apparent.
Suddenly men did not want their children, so government took over the responsibility of the men and the family. Not since the Roman decline has a nation suffered such terrible hatred of society.
Next, women did not want their own babies, in numbers never before seen.
And then, Americans (workers led by their politicians) no longer even wanted their jobs. Jobs the great wealth creator were seen as something to be looked down upon.
Greed took the place of charity, government took the place of God and his Church, and soon welfare enslaved more American people than the ‘Antebellum South’ had.
Must we fight a second un-Civil-War to eliminate this hate? This enslavement? This evil attack upon our ‘Way of Life?’
I pray we do not. I pray that America will turn once again to the Creator who gave us our rights, and our ‘Way of Life.’
Will you pray with me?
