“These most recent spasms of support for the deadly ideology of socialism remind us that progressives aren’t kidding. They may not fully understand what socialism means, but they fully intend to bring it about. Single-payer health care, “free” education, wealth redistribution schemes, highly progressive income taxes, wealth taxes, gun bans, and radical curbs on fossil fuels are all on the immediate agenda. They will do this quickly if possible, incrementally if they have to (see, again, the 20th century). They will do it with or without popular support, using legislatures, courts and judges, supranational agencies,university indoctrination, friendly media, or whatever political, economic, or social tools it takes (including de-platforming and hate speech laws). This is not paranoia; all of this is openly discussed. And say what you will about progressivism, it does have a central if false ethos: egalitarianism.

Conservatives, by contrast, are not serious. They have no animating spirit. They don’t much talk about liberty or property or markets or opportunity. They don’t mean what they say about the Constitution, they won’t do a thing to limit government, they won’t touch entitlements or defense spending, they won’t abolish the Department of Education or a single federal agency, they won’t touch abortion laws, and they sure won’t give up their own socialist impulses. Trumpism, though not conservative and thoroughly non-intellectual, drove a final stake through the barely beating heart of Right intellectualism, from the Weekly Standard to National Review. Conservatism today is incoherent, both ideologically and tactically incapable of countering the rising tide of socialism.”

Egalitarianism is equalitarianism; the untenable belief that all men are biologically equal and that all inequalities in income, wealth and opportunity are the results of unscrupulous usurpation and expropriation of the masses by the capitalists. Egalitarians contend that governments should use their coercive powers to restore and maintain the equality with which all men are supposed to be born.

“Christianity is not a smiling face, church-going, love society as most Americans understand it.”

 

Bonhoeffer belonged to a faction…he no longer shared and a church whose preaching he found stultifying and dull–and a pervasive loneliness overtook him

 

From the below:  Christianity is not a smiling face, church-going, love societyas most Americans understand it. Not one “Christian” in a million knows the difference in good and evil and if they did, they would not stand up for good.
More evil has been perpetrated under a Christian cloak than anything else. If we condone evil, we promote evil and it is the Christian responsibility to know the difference.

So why does the U.S. government and its politicians (paid by the federal government) support “Christianity” with so-called tax deductions? The answer is incredibly simple and it is because Christianity supports the government. “Christianity” is the foundation of the political order.

The government of the United States is totally committed to the growth of organized religion and “Christianity” because “Christianity” is a system of esoteric political philosophy that is essential to the very foundation of democracy. “Christianity” is the great charade and without it, the decadent and corrupt political order would collapse.

Note carefully that I am saying that the U.S. government supports organized religion (Christianity) but I have not said that the U.S. government supports Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Any U.S. politician who publicly confessed Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior would be politically dead forever.
