Draining The Swamp – Part XXI – Staying The Course
As the flood of accusations continue, it is important to keep in mind, that the process of Draining the Swamp will not be quick, and it will not be easy. Draining the Swamp is not just about sexual misconduct. It is about all kinds of misuse of power, and it is not just about Democrats, or the Left. There are those on the Right who have abused their positions of trust. Dennis Hastert comes to mind, for instance.
The goal is to clean house, and remove from ALL positions of power and influence those who are seeking to destroy our country from within. Be they politicians, media persons, academics, business men and women, or military personnel, they must be exposed and removed from their positions of trust, whenever possible, or at least exposed for what they are. It won’t be enough to expose a few individuals in high positions, as the cancer of the Swamp is rooted deep in the American psyche. Through years of indoctrination from the media, Hollywood, the pulpit of the politicians, and from our schools, the cancer of globalist, Marxist ideology has infiltrated many layers of our society. We must recognize the full scope of this indoctrination and face it with strength and conviction.
At its most basic, the fight is one of collectivism versus individualism. The collectivists believe it is the collective, that vague group of US, that is more important than the individual, though that vague collective is composed entirely of individuals. They say we must deny our families, our neighbors, our religion, if necessary, for “the greater good”, though that “greater good” always is intangible and incomprehensible. We must deny our dreams and hopes “for the greater good”.
Communism, or its many imitators, such as socialism and globalism, is a failed ideology. It has been tried and failed in all its incarnations. Witness the Soviet Union, Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba and even China.
It is “for the greater good”, according to the collectivists, that Western Culture must absorb all the migrants from South and Central America, the Mideast, Africa and places like Pakistan and Afghanistan; even though to help them where they are makes more sense. “For the greater good”, we must destroy the very fabric of our civilization, they insist.
Western Culture has been successful at providing a higher standard of living, with more freedoms for everyone, yet it must be destroyed, “for the greater good”. Make no mistake, their goal is the destruction of Western Civilization.
Those who believe in the Utopian Dream of Globalism, are fanatics who will stop at nothing. History has shown us this. We must be strong to resist them. We cannot fight one small battle and proclaim the war is won, for it isn’t. The price of freedom, (and our Western Culture), is eternal vigilance.
Throughout history, there have been those who wished to conquer the world and subjugate the masses into a single entity. From Ghengis Khan, to Rome, to the Greeks, to Napoleon, to Hitler and Lenin, they have, through force of arms, or through subversion, sought to impose their will on the globe. Today we face the Globalists, who have chosen to unite with Islam in their quest for dominance. Their devoted minions will do what they are told, and will be eliminated when they are not needed any more. History has shown us this, also.
Winning one battle, here, or there, is not enough. We must recognize the enemy and stay the course.
