In the olden days, the common language was never taken for granted. Many learned to read specifically so they could study the Holy Scriptures. Their lives were much harder, but their minds were more pure. This Book inspired many of the greatest heroes of history. Some were blessed with charisma – in its original sense. If more of us were engaged in the
study and contemplation of this Greatest Book, we would produce more leaders who follow them in this greatest tradition. And our nation would once again be blessed.

Robert F. Beaudine
“Every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt becondemned.” 
Throughout history, ideas have been used for good or for evil. They have also led to thegreatest evil – war. This is reflective in a nation’s language.By the end of 1932, Germany was in upheaval. The unemployment rate soared to 43%. Asthe Nazis rose to power, new ideas emerged; new words were introduced; old words werediscarded and others changed. “Juden verboten” became a popular phrase as the Juden,the Jews, were blamed for all their ills. They were denied basic rights as citizens, and mostactivities were verboten.In 1933, when Adolf Hitler consolidated power with the “Enabling Act,” modern art andarchitecture were condemned. Many artists fled their homeland, as art became a tool of the regime. The Reichstag was privately mocked as the most expensive glee club, as theirmembers sang paeans to their Fuhrer.The Nazi minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, defined the new order and foretold theconsequences, “When I hear the word ‘culture’ I reach for my gun.” The regime was “fascist,” a word coined in 1921. This obscured their ideology – “nationalsocialism” – a clever term somewhat palatable to their fellow nationalists in the military andindustry. They telescoped this into “Nazi” to further hide its origins from the world. Whenscholars claim this was a regime of the far right, they are either duped or dishonest.Under the Nazis, their prominent leaders were well-read. Goebbels boasted of his library,complete with all the works of Edward Bernays, most notably his Propaganda. Heimplemented Bernays’ program with great success. When this was discovered after thewar, propaganda was redefined as P.R., “public relations.” 
 
For their fanatical followers and the rest of the masses who decided to stay, anti-intellectualism was decreed. Books were burned, the media censored. French words werepurged from their vocabulary. Free speech became dangerous, as even children were spiesfor the state.The universities became centers to regiment thought. In a nation acclaimed for itsscholarship, this betrays either their madness or a diabolical agenda – the blueprint usedby all the totalitarian dictators.Eventually, many renowned scholars fled and brought their unique heritage to America.
Verbal Engineering
In 1949, George Orwell, unfurled his vision of a nightmarish future in
1984
. “Don’t you seethat the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shallmake thoughtcrime literally impossible because there will be no words in which to expressit.” Orwell’s protagonist, Winston Smith, learned something about his world: When wordsare eliminated from the common vocabulary, the thinking of the common people becomeslimited.Later, his novel showed how perceptions are manipulated when the definitions of fundamental words are changed, i.e., peace becomes defense which then becomes war – aclassic illustration of Hegel’s dialectic. Here, the thesis – or status quo – refers to thecurrent usage of the word. When it undergoes a slight change in meaning towards itsantithesis, a new synthesis is born. If enough incremental changes occur, eventually theantithesis is established.Because the term “Hegel’s dialectic” is missing from our common vocabulary, many of ushave no awareness of this process in continual motion. Instead, we think every changeoccurs naturally.By definition, a change towards the antithesis is adverse to that element of society whowould “conserve” the status quo – the conservatives who revere their traditions andinstitutions.In today’s world, many of our most important institutions and traditions – and thefoundational words associated with them – have been so dramatically engineered towardsthe antithesis that conservatives no longer support the status quo.
The Philosophical Roots of the Social Sciences
Spanning the 18
th
Century of Western Civilization, the Enlightenment was an intellectualrevolution based on reason. It produced two predominant types: Those who rejected allauthority outside of reason, including religion and its divine right of kings, and those whoremained true to Christianity. Because free speech was not a right, the most radical writerspublished anonymously.Science rapidly unraveled the mysteries on Earth and in the sky above, and led to thebelief that continued discoveries would enable humanity’s triumph over nature.
 
This also created despair for some Christians. As science flourished, many Medieval“truths,” i.e. the sun revolved around the Earth, had been proved as myths. SomeChristians lost their faith. Yet, many leading scientists remained true to their faith. Sciencehad not destroyed the authority of the Bible, only the misinterpretations.In 1751, the first volume of 
l’Encyclopedie
was published in France. Over the next twenty-one years, twenty-seven more volumes followed, edited by the brilliant French atheists,Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond d’Alembert. Diderot admitted their aim was “to change theway people think.” In
The Closing of the American Mind
, Allan Bloom wrote, “This project was a conspiracy, asd’Alembert said in the Preliminary Discourse of 
l’Encyclopedie,
the premier document of theEnlightenment. It had to be, for, in order to have rulers who are reasonable, many of theold rulers had to be replaced, in particular all those whose authority rested upon revelation.The priests were the enemies, for they rejected the claim of reason and based politics andmorals on sacred texts and ecclesiastical authorities.” In 1798, the British professor, John Robison, wrote in
Proofs of a Conspiracy
, “A formaland systematic conspiracy against Religion was formed and zealously prosecuted byVoltaire, d’Alembert, and Diderot, assisted by Frederic II, King of Prussia … their darlingproject was to destroy Christianity and all Religion, and to bring about a total change of Government.”`These conspirators claimed
l’Encyclopedie
had assembled all the accumulated knowledgethroughout the ages. After initial censorship, it became the foremost reference source forknowledge, which spread their ideas undermining civil and Christian authorities.The 19
th
Century French philosopher and founder of modern sociology, Auguste Comte,embraced Enlightenment thinking, of the type that rejected religion. His philosophy, logicalpositivism, claimed science as the only reliable approach to truth. Empirical observationleads to verification which leads to truth. Religion had to be abandoned.American philosopher, Thomas Ellis Katen, explained, “Thus the positivist realm becomes akingdom of thingdom and an ‘off-limits’ sign is put on areas of life most meaningful to men… when men’s souls cry out for an image of unity, the logical positivistic philosophy offersonly further fragmentation.” The German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, offered no help. He upended metaphysics inthe late 19
th
Century and ended Germany’s Western tradition in philosophy. Nietzscheannounced to the world that “God is dead!” which gave humanity the freedom to createtheir own values. He said philosophers had a moral duty to create the new myths forsociety. He also declared all scientific achievement was the result of a “will to power.” Allan Bloom wrote, “The history of liberal thought since Locke and Smith has been one of almost unbroken decline in philosophic substance.”

Recently, many patriots have been aroused from their sleep and now fight on the political front with some apparent success, but this seems to have little overall effect. As they fight this skirmish, the all-out war rages around them in all the other arenas of life. We might be surrounded, but this is no time for the faint-hearted. There is no time for retreat. Our brave warriors must no longer fig
