Progressive moral ambiguity III: The New World Order's rainbow lawyers
By Michael Moriarty
A few nationalities in history came close to having reigned supreme for a time. There were the Greeks under Alexander and the Romans under the Caesars but now the Pax Americana, a term which former President George H. W. Bush coined out of the Octavian Empire of Rome, has been co-opted by a set of intellectual supremacists, from Henry A. Kissinger to Barack H. Obama, who increasingly pore out of the world's international intelligence factories such as Harvard and are best known now as the burgeoning leadership of a "New World Order".
One of the major keys to this disturbing transformation has been our educational system's ability to sell "moral ambiguity" (see Progressive moral ambiguity I).
In short, we are becoming a nation under hand-picked, pampered, excessively educated or, might we add, purposely indoctrinated, ruthlessly eloquent defense lawyers who, at a moment's notice, can defend terrorism and an actual hatred of America, and redefine anti-Americanism as Progressively patriotic contributions to this … uh … yes, New World Order.
These men and women are inspirational motivators for the world we will re-organize … if and when, of course, the "change-we-can-believe-in" happens!
All of it progressing smoothly along our nation's increasing acceptance of "moral ambiguity".
Following the Reagan era, the, well, "Eggheads" have been holding sway over the "Gippers" and "Hockey Moms", those American conservatives who might continue to wallow in the excessively American ideas of democracy, individual freedom and, lest we forget, the all-important individual responsibility which enables and protects any form of individual freedom.
The death of individual responsibility is the death of individual freedom. However, in a world of moral ambiguity, individual freedom is just as ambiguous as either good or evil.
"Multiculturalism" has replaced the older, antiquated and, yes, unfashionably conservative values of the traditional United States … those very principles that have made the United States so strong.
The Democrats are now not just a political party. They are "Global Initiators" -- rather like post-graduate Community Organizers.
Therefore America, in the eyes of its own leadership, is now only one nation among many.
As "moral ambiguity" ends individual responsibility, there comes the end of national responsibility … and the mess, the nightmare that is rising in America is best denied by a government that now wants to be responsible for the whole human race -- under a "Global Initiative" -- and, of course, will treat its new responsibility as cavalierly as it treated its old ones.
It's that very American "Think Big" idea that got us into this … or rather, got us out of our more traditional but now, very "old-fashioned" values.
We must remember that the biggest of the "Big Thinkers" of the last century were Marx, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini and Mao Tse Tung.
What a profoundly post-graduate set of community organizers!
In contrast, we might call Sir Winston Churchill the Big Reactor of the Twentieth Century -- the one man who responded first and most effectively to the global initiatives of the Big Thinkers.
Of all the Big Thinkers, however, Karl Marx still reigns supreme.
As an example of burgeoning Marxism, the big three automakers are just begging to be nationalized. Setting themselves up as dependent upon the American government for their very future.
The American government is now behaving like the world's greatest monopoly; and what once was America is now the Progressive Peoples' Republic … eventually Federation … of the World. This ultimate title was best prepared by President Bill Clinton's retirement job as President of a "Global Initiative". President Barack Obama will, of course, pick up where President Clinton left off.
Clinton and Obama are clearly the great "global initiators" of this next century.
It all fits so nicely … and the Bush family set it all in motion with Pax Americana. That the Pax Americana is now socialist only reveals how far to the Left the Bush family's neo-conservatism really has been. I doubt if George Jr. knew that when he was going into the White House … but he certainly knows coming out of the Oval Office what his dad and one of his dad's best friends, Bill Clinton, knew all along: "All will eventually surrender to Karl Marx and world socialism".
Can it really be Americana, or even simply American, when the standards that defined America, those established by the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, when they've been ignored, trampled on and, with the Roe v. Wade decision, virtually defied?!
All men are no longer created equal. They are gestated as possible candidates for abortion … an abortion selection process increasingly controlled by a Socialist State.
Ironically, however, the United States … or, to be frank, the increasingly Socialist States of America … or, more accurately, of the World … after twenty years of Bush/Clinton/Bush presidencies, is rather prematurely but obviously bankrupt!
That's so good for Socialism!
It was all fairly predictable. If the seminally conservative idea of conserving … not only one's money but one's core values as well … if that's gone … then bankruptcy follows. And with bankruptcy? A belief in Socialism as a cure.
When Ivy League-trained, intellectual supremacists graduate as lawyers with the obvious motive to protect themselves from other lawyers … and the graduates know that defense law pays the most money … and the "most money" is increasingly being owned by the American government … then the best and sharpest defense lawyer graduates and immediately gravitates toward the Presidency … because it is only the best defense lawyer that can possibly defend a government or global initiative which is more than willing to slowly but steadily bankrupt the people, set up socialism and end all individual freedom - in what once was the most individually free nation in the world.
