The same Evil in new wrapping paper
For the past few weeks, GMC has reported on the communist takeover of education. The seizure has been brilliantly conceived and executed. There is plenty of evidence the communists have both infiltrated and attained positions of immense power within the educational system. By doing so, they have been able to convert countless young people to follow their empty, godless promises of creating a better world.
By constantly fostering the idea of “social justice, many of our youth have been fooled into thinking that communistic philosophies will help the poor and save the planet. All commendable objectives on their own which are alluring to a new generation. Who doesn’t want to do good for our fellow man or to reverence the planet we live on? The problem is the good of these ideals has been highjacked and manipulated by communism to advance their evil ends.
Wherever and whenever communism has been enacted everyone suffers, except of course, the few on top of the communist pyramid who wield power. What the youth do not realize is social justice can never truly exist in our world unless it is fully rooted in God, because justice is not a manmade principle, it is a divine one.
The communists and their ilk have long known there is a desire in all young people to rebel against the ideas and traditions of their parents and also attempt to make their mark on the world and be a part of something big, something important. In the classic Frank Capra movie It’s a Wonderful Life, Jimmy Stewart playing the main character, George Bailey, makes the following proclamation about how his future will be far more significant than that of his father who owns and runs a less than impressive local building and loan bank.
“I’m shakin’ the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I’m gonna see the world. Italy, Greece, the Parthenon, the Colosseum. Then, I’m comin’ back here to go to college and see what they know. And then I’m gonna build things. I’m gonna build airfields, I’m gonna build skyscrapers a hundred stories high, I’m gonna build bridges a mile long…”
Clearly, the same hubris that drove a fictional character in 1946 to cast away traditional norms and values of his past and create something anew is also what is driving the insanity we are currently seeing in today’s educational system. Every generation fancies themselves somehow better, smarter, more informed, and less judgmental than previous generations. In some ways this is a natural process, one of breaking away and forming your own adult identity.
However, today’s children are different, they not only want to move away but completely decimate all of the traditions they grew up with in order to see themselves as ‘independent.’ Take note of the movie It’s a Wonderful Life. Jimmy Stewart although desiring to be independent, was by his fate, in close contact with his family. After his father died, he could choose to move away from his family obligations or assume them. He chose to accept his life as it was which is the timeless Christian message and charm of the movie.
In the past, the naïveté of youth was usually met with a huge dose of reality which had a useful moderating effect on overly idealistic dreams. Most people as they matured and assumed the life of functioning adults (complete with the responsibilities of jobs, homes and families) found out that the lies the communists peddled were just that – lies. People thirty or forty years ago also maintained some semblance of a faith life which also helped to expose these falsehoods into the light of day.
With the advent of the ‘trophy generation’, education is filled with prideful, conceited and overeducated, yet ignorant individuals who possess no palpable faith life. In truth, they are woefully uninformed about world history and the devastation that communist regimes have wrought on humanity. And yet, they somehow think they should be the sole arbiters of truth and have a monopoly on thought. They even believe they have the right to countermand the authority of a child’s parent. This arrogance makes it impossible for them to understand that today’s communism is the same deadly ideology as it always was, just wrapped up in new package and bearing the names of climate change, cancel culture, and gender theory.
Communism is simply presented as something new to a prideful and ignorant generation. The wisdom of Ecclesiastes which has lasted longer any generation warns of the sober reality of generational arrogance:
What has been, that will be; what has been done, that will be done. Nothing is new under the sun!
Even the thing of which we say, “See, this is new!” has already existed in the ages that preceded us.
There is no remembrance of past generations nor will future generations be remembered by those who come after them.
Unfortunately, not only are the young of today proud and conceitful, but they are also very emotionally immature, making them easy targets for manipulation and indoctrination. So many young teachers and librarians virtue signal their so-called “acceptance and tolerance” on social media sites by bragging how they are complicit in grooming young children. They do this for their own social standing, to prove to the world how caring and wonderful they are. If they truly cared about the children they are unduly influencing, they would first fully educate themselves on the physical and psychological dangers present within these ideologies. But to them, the children in their care are simply a vehicle to affirm their own perverted needs, because they too were groomed into believing a life without God can somehow be meaningful and full.
Today’s young people have also been told that as long as they support social justice initiatives, they are ostensibly “good people” and can engage in a host of sinful acts including: using one another for their own satisfaction, living together before marriage, or aborting their own children. Undoubtedly, this plays well into the communist manifesto seeking to destroy the first cell of society—the family.
The other problem is a lack of faith formation the newer generations have not received, which has opened up a vacuum where the lies of the communism can fill by representing their evil as something new. Look at Tik Tok for example, a new social platform marketed to a new generation of susceptible youth. Little do these children know, China is behind the platform and stealing data from them for the CPC use. The Chinese communists know human nature well and stop at nothing to exploit those who do not wish to know history or care little about what has happened to millions of people who have been killed by communistic policies.
It’s time parents and teachers begin to realize there is no such thing as complete independence from the past. We exist and have our meaning on the backs of the generations before us, and their sacrifices and wisdom should be embraced, not shunned. “Even the thing of which we say, “See, this is new!” has already existed in the ages that preceded us.”
