society's decline. Within the judicial branch of government, judgesaccountable to no one have helped undermine the religious freedoms thatwere once the centerpiece of our society. Laws once protected children andfamilies. Criminals were punished severely for rape. People were arrested forcohabitation and adultery. Sodomy, outlawed in every state, was listed in thenewspaper as a "crime against nature." A couple having a child out of wedlock was ostracized, and homosexuality was as foreign to the world aswalking on the moon.
One obvious indicator that a culture is in decline is when the rulingclass loses its will.
Our nation's leaders no longer see the world according to right and wrong.Instead, the objective of today's foreign policy Establishment is to maintainthe status quo. In like manner, our elected leaders have lost their moralauthority. Elected officials no longer seek office for the good of the countrybut instead seek reelection to further lucrative careers within theWashington Establishment. Also, our nation's defense Establishment hastraded military readiness for social experimentation with a feminizedmilitary.
The final indicator of the demise of a civilization is the failure of itspeople to see what is happening.
In nearly every case, citizens of past civilizations which ended witnessed allof the signs of demise but failed to act. Today, the popular culture hashelped society forget the lessons of history. In school, teachers used to teachthe basics; children received report cards that actually reflected what theyhad achieved. In 1973, the NEA president said, "The day of basic skills is over. . . we will be the conveyor of national values" Today schools teach self-esteem and is a major tool used to indoctrinate our children. It's notuncommon in science class for children to be taught that humans evolvedfrom a lower lifeform and that trees have the same right to life as humans.Children learn that it is okay to have two mommies and no daddy. Kids todayare adept at using a calculator, but have no concept of multiplication ordivision. They cannot make change but score high in self-esteem.All of the signs of the demise of our culture are with us today: the hostilitytoward religion, the breakup of the family, the declining view of life, theappetite immorality, the violence and crime, and the declining middle classare coupled with an federal government on the brink of insolvency, whoseleaders are living off of society's moral decay leading to the loss of leadership and moral will. The education system has robbed our of a classiceducation; seduced them through deceit and outright lies; the court systemhas given us "rights" we never owned; the criminal justice system does notprovide justice for those who are mistreated; legislators have legalizedimmoral behavior; and our national leaders have set an example of immorality.
