After Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed, Armstrong uttered the now-famous words, “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed.” The pair plants an American flag on the surface, collects scientific samples, and arranges experiments. Savor this moment because it will never happen again.
Some of you might think I refer to Obama’s scuttling of the Space Shuttle program. But I’m not. Just because the space shuttle program has ended (which also ends the Hubble Telescope program as it depends on the Shuttle) doesn’t mean people won’t continue reaching for the stars. The dream of space travel will outlast Obama.
I am referring to the planting of that flag. Nationalism is being taught to our children as a dirty word. The terms, “Open Society” are now sweeping our universities through huge influxes of cash. “Open Society” claims that nationalism is wrong-headed and bad. Antiquated, even. The money elites, such as George Soros, openly and smilingly espouse this new concept in conferences, speeches and as courses in universities. Soros even has a speech circuit that passes through major universities, like Columbia University in N.Y., and throughout the world. He, and they, make it sound so very wonderful. One world government that grows and changes over time to reflect the ever better spirit of Man. We will embrace all religions, making them all the same. We will embrace all culture (but no one must assimilate). We will combine the Intellect of all people and herald in a New Society, free of war. We will all acknowledge the limits to our own knowledge (religion is variable & we will learn ‘more’ as Man matures). Kind of like the Federation in the Star Trek series.
Of course, they don’t bother to say who will be the ‘head’ of this great new society. Hmmmm. Gosh, that’s hard to guess.
History classes are re-writing history for our elementary, middle and high schools and it all points to the same thing: being an American is something to be ashamed of. The other day, my child came home from second grade and told me that Washington was a slave owner. Later, she also brought home poems, artwork & songs praising Martin Luther King. They spent a whole week on civil rights & Martin Luther King. Nothing against Mr. King, but doesn’t Washington deserve equal or better treatment for his accomplishments (oh, you know, like winning the revolutionary war which gave birth to this nation and oh, you know, being the first American president)? No? Ok, then how about a week for all the founding fathers combined– forget a week for each! No, still, huh?
There is no way on earth that Americans will ever feel free to plant our flag anywhere. Because it feels dirty now. I guess owning all the news, politicians & teachers and spewing non-stop propaganda works after all.
