Universities and Media Are Incubators Of Political Correctness, Thought Control


Historical writings, regardless of time and place, are replete with lamentations that societies are falling apart. Fueled by technology, there is little doubt that in America such concerns are more justified than ever. The traditional family unit is falling apart. Our future human capital, children, are coddled while those of ISIS are, beginning at age 10, learning to behead infidels. The sexual revolution, largely unchallenged, is broadly destabilizing. We’re, with little resistance, surrendering our individual freedom to government. Thought and speech control have now become acceptable. Voices supporting globalism to replace nationalism and our freedom are gaining momentum. The virtual world, instead of nature’s one, is being passionately embraced and will soon have us embracing irresistible, programmed robotic sweethearts. Christianity and Judeo Christian values, cornerstones of the success of America, are losing ground to secularism. Our universities and media are educational incubators of political correctness which, unmasked, is nothing more than the push to control the behavior of individuals, families and institutions. The list is long.

We have crossed the threshold into a revolutionary, disruptive and seemingly brakeless new world, the overall good and bad of which are just too big to see, though a Huxley-Orwell type destiny is certainly possible. For these reasons, we urgently need highly visible national leaders who can guide us through these tumultuous times. Cicero wrote, and Machiavelli agreed, that in troubled times peoples are eagerly receptive to the messages of leaders whom they trust. Pope Francis is such an example; but he stands alone. Where, then, are the others and why are they hiding? The forces propelling the aforementioned movements are formidable and those leaders who oppose them would, because of our superb investigative technology, be mercilessly vetted for his real or insinuated sins. To date, it appears that men are greater sinners than women. Thus, if I were to run for mayor of Westfield- fear not, Mayor Skibitskyit would then be discovered that I, in the fourth grade in a crowded cloakroom, forcibly kissed the class snob, Mary Ellen, in order to teach her a lesson and take her a notch or two down from her pedestal. I was then brought before the principal, reprimanded and almost suspended. This being discovered, current forces would label me as a man who began abusing women as a child which accusations would destabilize my personal life and diminishing my chances to become mayor- just because of a single kiss. (For the record, I have kissed other women since).

Despite these formidable barriers, history teaches that difficult times are the fodder for the emergence of great leaders. I perceive that they will soon arrive and learn how to use their sins and we are all sinners- to their strategic advantage with dynamic and highly persuasive impact. It requires the type of courage which Solzhenitsyn and President Reagan alluded to.

For encouragement, I would recommend that they view the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan movie where Jane is kidnapped by the baddies and he, bestriding his elephant, trumpets out a resounding Umgowa calling on Cheetah and the other jungle animals to join him as he plunges forward into the jungle, fearless of the dangers that await him, to save the life of his beloved wife.
