Social Consequences

By Doug H. McCormick

Media: THE PLAN — “Keep the adult public attention diverted away from the real social issues, and captivated by matters of no real importance.” Now, think carefully and clearly about the issues upon which newspapers, magazines, and TV dwell the most. Are not most of them of small importance? We are fed a steady diet of violence, crime, sex, and war [or the rumors of war] but no one is reporting o…n the real issues of the day, i.e., the steady erosion of our Constitutional protections, the steady encroachment of a Federal Government into our private lives and the steady surrender of our national sovereignty to the United Nations [just to mention a few]. Very, very few people today read the news from beginning to end, knowing the issues of the day. Yet, even those of us who do care enough to read widely, we are faced with the reality that many major stories are simply not reported in the major media. How many ministries today are actively reporting stories that the major media refuses to acknowledge? What did New Ageauthor Bill Cooper write in his book, “Behold A Pale Horse”? “Keep the people busy, busy, busy, too busy to think; just like the other animals on the farm.”Schools: THE PLAN — “Keep the young public ignorant of real mathematics, real economics, real law, and real history.” Curricula today [actually since about 1930] is written to give the appearance of education, while denying education in reality. This is why we have children going through schools without being able to figure simple addition and subtraction in their head. This is why these same kids cannot count change back to you at the grocery store. Doubtless you can recite many other instances where this kind of tragedy is occurring. If the masses are ignorant of true mathematics, real economics, real law, and real history, they will be in no position to recognize that someone, someday, is about to take all these wonderful freedoms away, permanently. Ignorant people tend to judge superficially, and they tend to place too great a faith in leaders who are not worthy of such trust. Therefore, when the planned series of concurrent crises sweeps over America, these woefully ignorant people will allow themselves to be stampeded into allowing whatever plan of action is being proposed.

Schools today are lost. They do not, indeed can not, teach. Teachers no longer can maintain the elementary discipline and order, without which learning cannot occur. Kids are running the schools now, with administrators cringing at the mere thought of a lawsuit. Children are not learning Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic, but they are learning violence, rebellion, alcohol, and drugs. Serious children who do want to learn are threatened by this system out of control. Other students actively discourage them from performing well. This discouragement too often takes the form of physical intimidation.

Entertainment: THE PLAN — “Keep the public entertainment below a sixth-grade level.” Have you ever really watched a sitcom these days? Not only are they filled with unChristian values, language, and activities, they are also written below the sixth-grade level. I would wager a guess that the true level of most sitcoms today is below the fifth grade level!

Work: “Keep the public busy, busy, busy, with no time to think; back on the farm with the other animals.” Now, you know why President Johnson refused to impose war time controls on the economy, even as we were rushing into the huge Vietnam War buildup. I clearly remember many respected economists warning, with all their might, against this action, warning that it would ignite huge long-term inflation.

And, of course, that is exactly what happened! To maintain long-term house mortgages, and car payments, and a myriad of other lifestyle standards, Mothers had to enter the workplace by the tens of millions. No longer was one paycheck ever enough. And, the Government kept increasing taxes so that two paychecks were not enough. Millions of Dads and/or Moms took second jobs to stay economically afloat. Yet, even then, the Middle Class is slowly being squeezed out of existence.

As tens of millions of Mothers entered the workplace, the Family began to break apart. If husbands and wives were not divorcing, they were making life in the home an absolute Hell on Earth. Kids began to sour on life, leading to the explosion of nihilistic Rock Music and popular culture.

“Keep the public busy, busy, busy, with no time to think; back on the farm with the other animals.”
