Is our culture uplifting? Are kids well behaved? Are kids doing well academically? Have we failed them? Yes. We need to start acting like adults.We need to begin to realize we are responsible for the kind of society our kids and THEIR kids will grow up in. We have a clear choice. Values or lack of. You want to see a society collapse? Destroy its culture. Did you get to see any of Pope Francis visit to Rio for World Youth Day? How many young people traveled thousand of miles just to hear him speak? Try 3 million. Our young people are ready for better folks. They’re thirsting for values, truth, orthodoxy. You don’t have to be hip and ‘with the times’. They need adults who act like adults. So what do we do? We elect the most radical President we could have elected. Someone who intended to fundamentally transform America. Someone who mentored with communist Frank Davis. Someone who believes the state is the answer. They will regulate all kinds of things and pass laws thousands of pages long. It is because he does not have a moral compass. They don’t like his policies but they “like him.” The President of celebrity. I hear he’s cool too.You can call me racist because I think electing Obama was a big mistake. I KNOW there are plenty of black conservatives out there who know EXACTLY what i’m talking about and they’re fighting against a sick [for the most part white] culture that is poisoning their children. You can call me intolerant. Is there some reason to tolerate PERMISSIVENESS? Or confuse licentiousness with liberty? Or to know that we can do better. One day you’ll wake up and realize you’re living in a cesspool and there’s no way out. Call me intolerant. Remember,i was a liberal. I’ve been down that road and I know how lame all the arguments are. I know how it ends up and where it’s going. There isn’t an argument you can throw out there that is defensible.
GK Chesterton on Modernism and Orthodoxy: The real objection to modernism is simply that it is a form of snobbishness. It is an attempt to crush a rational opponent not by reason, but by some mystery of superiority, by hinting that one is especially up to date or particularly ‘in the know’. To flaunt the fact that we have had all the last books from Germany is simply vulgar. To introduce into philosophical discussions a sneer at a creed’s antiquity is like introducing a sneer at a lady’s age. It is caddish because it is irrelevant. The pure modernist is merely a snob; he cannot bear to be a month behind the fashion (All Things Considered, p. 5). * * * People have fallen into a foolish habit of speaking of orthodoxy as something heavy, humdrum, and safe. There never was anything so perilous or so exciting as orthodoxy. It was sanity: and to be sane is more dramatic than to be mad. It is easy to be a madman; it is easy to be a heretic. It is always easy to let the age have its head; the difficult thing is to keep one’s own. It is always easy to be a modernist; as it is easy to be a snob. It is always simple to fall; there are an infinity of angles at which one falls, only one at which one stands. To have fallen into any one of the fads from Gnosticism to Christian Science would indeed have been obvious and tame. But to have avoided them all has been one whirling adventure; and in my vision the heavenly chariot flies thundering through the ages, the dull heresies sprawling and prostrate, the wild truth reeling but erect (Orthodoxy, p. 187).
