Gustave DorÃ©, A Traveller from New Zealand Contemplating the Ruins of London.
“[W]hen some traveller from New Zealand shall, in the midst of a vast solitude, take his stand on a broken arch of London Bridge to sketch the ruins of St. Paul’s” — Thomas Babbington Macauley.
Selwyn Duke explains that the presumably-disastrous next presidential election doesn’t really matter all that much. America (and the rest of the West) is doomed anyway.
Many people lament that â€œObama has destroyed America these last eight yearsâ€ or, alluding to same, will say â€œI donâ€™t recognize my country anymore.â€ This is much like viewing a woman who marries a greasy-haired, dope-smoking, heavily tattooed and pierced, unemployable reprobate and saying that her matrimonial decision destroyed her, when the real problem was that she was the kind of person who could make such a choice in the first place. Do you really think Obama isnâ€™t a symptom at least as much as a cause? Do you think the 2008 A.D. America that elected him would have been recognizable to 1950 Americans?
And even if the next president is an anomalous good result, he wonâ€™t even be a pause that refreshes, but will at best slow down the runaway train racing toward the precipice. This is because our main problems arenâ€™t illegal migration, trade deals or health care, as significant as those things are. Our problems are more fundamental.
Do you really want to save America? Okay, then completely transform the media, academia and entertainment so theyâ€™re not brainwashing citizens 24/7 with anti-American, anti-Christian, multiculturalist, socialist, feminist and a multitude of other lies. End legal immigration, which, via the importation of massive numbers of Third Worlders, is changing our country into a socialistic non-Western culture. Even more significantly, convince the 70-plus percent of Americans who are moral relativists to believe in Truth; these are people who, as the Barna Group research company put it, believe that what we call â€œtruth is always relative to the person and their situationâ€ and whose most common basis for moral decision-making is â€œdoing whatever feels rightâ€¦.â€
