This is a portion of the list of 45 goals of the communist party which were entered into the Congressional record in July 1963 based on evidence presented in the book”The Naked Communist” by Cleon Skousen in 1958. Mr Skousen had been an agent of the FBI investigating communist activity and their plans to over throw our country.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks. 18. Gain control of all student newspapers. 19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions. 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. 22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.” 23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.” 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.” 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”- See more at: http://www.rense.com/general32/americ.htm#sthash.12IVwRfm.dpuf
Currently our politicos from both political parties call issues regarding the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage “social issues “. Yet the communists considered the propagation of promiscuous behavior and homosexuality as necessary for our destruction.
Could they know something that we have forgotten?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” –Declaration of Independence as originally written by Thomas Jefferson, 1776. ME 1:29, Papers 1:315
These inalienable rights, from the Creator, not from men or government are foundational. They also draw upon nature’s laws. Note that in the above reference to the 45 communist goals I started with the “Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.” What has been claimed in the fight for equality by the LGBT community? That the institution of one man and one woman in marriage has violated their civil rights. That this American Institution must be destroyed for the sake of”equality”. When natural law is redefined or destroyed then the rule of law no longer applies.
The communists knew that the foundation of our Constitution depended on the absolute truth of natural law and the authority of the Creator. When the destruction of morality and the break down of American Institutions occurs then America loses her way and she becomes this evil colonial beast that has stolen from the Indians, killed innocents, promoted slavery, fought unjust wars, committed atrocities and been evil all her life. This is the image they have created. It is why, they recognize the importance of these moral issues in redefining American history.
The issue then moves to where authority is derived from. If not through natural law and rights granted by a Creator, then they are given by government who also can take them away. They saw that this was the path to destroying our form of government by stripping it of the very authority upon which it exists.
The reason communists chose to, “Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch”, becomes rather clear. Without those standard we have no real basis for any of our laws. Everything becomes relative. Anarchy becomes the norm and this is what they, the communists, need to rise up. Millenials embrace socialism because of the moral climate we are in.
Because without the high moral justification upon which our founding fathers fought the revolution and secured freedom and liberty for all, waited to let the English fire first and stood on God’s wisdom in writing our constitution we too would have fallen long ago.
So let’s not be so quick to dismiss these “social issues “, because they are in fact the very bricks upon which the freedom we are struggling to hold onto are built. The communists understand this why don’t we?
