What is happening in the United States has been forecast. Nobody should be surprised that the United States of America is now on the cusp of becoming a collectivist nation. The move for this to happen was put into motion years ago. It would not have happened if the American public had remained as dedicated to individualism as were those who paid such a huge price for freedom and independence.
I received a call from my Cousin this morning on a personal matter. During the course of our conversation, which had turned to current events, she made the comment that she and her husband were talking about the situation and she said my name came up as it had in many of their previous conversations. She said that they recall many of the things I had written and that so much of what I had written is happening.
I had a conversation with my Sister the other day, again on a personal matter. As so often happens the conversation had turned to current events and my Sister mentioned that during the course of many conversations in which she has been engaged recently, my name will be mentioned in reference to the books I have written and the comment of how what I had said is now happening.
I mention these happenings for a specific purpose and that purpose is not to brag that I am not clairvoyant. The fact is I am not. What I have done is to study history which is the study of people. I have also studied the differences between the individualist movement and the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) movement. The current happenings are the results of individualists glorying in the inevitable achievements of individualism and the destruction and evil championed by the collectivist. The change is because the American people refused to pay any attention to the inevitable signs of what was to come. Complacency is always dangerous.
Two areas of critical attack by the collectivist movement was taking place right before us and we Freedom Loving Americans paid no attention to what was happening, in fact, in many ways we assisted the collectivist as we relished the rewards of the efforts of those before us.
The two critical areas that the collectivists were attacking are the two areas they always attack. The collectivist always indoctrinates the youth of a nation through the school system and they also concentrate on the breakdown of the core family unit. If they can succeed in these two areas they are well on their way to destroying the freedom, liberty, and prosperity that is created by individualism.
We who claim to champion freedom, liberty, and prosperity must learn in what manner individualism is being challenged, who is challenging it, and how they are challenging what we hold so dear. It is this that was referenced by my cousin and my sister. They better understood the what, the who, and the how. If you are determined to fight to retain the individualism that was given to us, you must also understand the what, the who, and the how.
How do you go about doing this. You must commit to being a dedicated student and keen observer. Set aside some time each day dedicated to this cause. Be less concerned about repeating and posting the now trite clichés and understand the reasoning behind these bumper stickers. Read, read, read, and ask questions. The resources are at your fingertips. One great way to get a better understanding is to read the books I have spent a great deal of time researching and publishing. You can find them on my website or on Amazon. The Road to Tyranny, Two Visions of America, and Setting Brushfires of Freedom will give you a much better understanding of the what, who, and how.
These books are available on my website, Amazon, or Barnes and Nobel.
