There is much happening in the United States today that is the direct result of what has been happening in the United States for over a century. The collectivist movement to fundamentally transform the United States as stated by Obama on October 30, 2008, began over a century ago is what is happening. What did I just say and what does it mean?
To understand what I just said we have to first of all understand the differences between the two forces that have raged since the founding of the United States of America. These two forces are referred to as individualism and collectivism. Collectivism is some sort of group rather than an individual who is at the center of all social, political, and economic concerns, and issues. Those who are proponents of this ideology say that the interests and claims of groups like the state, supersede those of individuals. Individualists believe that society is there, but it is ultimately made up of individuals who choose and act. The foundation of individualism lies in one’s moral right, to pursue one’s own happiness.
Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, and all autocratic states are forms of collectivism. The state has the authority to dictate to all people within the collective who and what they will be. Collectivism dominated the world until the formation of the United States of America. In our Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson stated and the delegates to the Continental Congress accepted the idea of individualism that had been talked about philosophically for centuries but stated so clearly and emphatically by John Locke, that each individual is endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable rights, including but not limited to life, liberty, and property, or as Jefferson said the pursuit of happiness.
This concept of each individual having the rights including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is the very concept that went on to propel the United States to become the benevolent power it became. It is this very concept that is now at the heart of so many Americans despising our nation and as Obama stated, to fundamentally transform the United States of America. What Obama did not say on October 30, 2008, but stated in his policies and statements prior and after, was that the United States of America would be fundamentally transformed from a nation founded on the principles of individualism to a nation based on the principles of collectivism, or that the United States of America would be transformed into a Marxist totalitarian state.
This was happening and supported by the Democrat party and the Republicans In Name Only as they supported more and more government controls over the lives of the individual citizens, over their life, liberty, and the pursuit of their happiness. This group, the Democrat party and the RHINO’s were now saying that it is government who can control the life by allowing the murder of unborn children, by regulating the liberties of speech, religion, assembly, right to bear arms to name a few, and the right to pursue our own happiness, with the caveat that the government has a right to share in our monetary rewards and to control our pursuits so as not to harm the egos of others or exceed declared limits by the state.
This is what is happening in the United States today, will we be fundamentally transformed. Will we remain a nation adhering to the liberal and radical concept proclaimed by our founders that we individuals will retain our rights given to us by the Creator, or that we will alienate those rights to government who will alter their role from protector to controller of all rights including those given to us by the Creator.
The collectivist movement has become a dominant force in the Untied States by indoctrinating people that their rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are best served when they adhere to the dictates of the collective, subjugating their personal desires and wishes to the control of the state. This has been accomplished primarily through the efforts of those adhering to the demands of Vladimir Lenin when he demanded through the control of the Communist International over the member of the United States Communist party that they concentrate on gaining control of education, news outlets, and entertainment outlets in the Untied States. This was done and enabled by the Democrat party which became a tool for the Communists under Franklin Roosevelt, and became the Communist Party of the United States under Obama despite maintaining the name Democrat Party.
The question every American is facing today is do I agree that I am an individual and my rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are God given with the government’s only role as protector, or do I agree that all my rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are under the control of the state, and it is my duty and obligation to live as a loyal and subservient member of the state, understanding I owe my all to the state.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
