In Part 1, I discussed how the mainstream media, billionaire progressives such as George Soros, the White House and even the Occupy movement are in cahoots with one another.
In Part 2, I discussed the MSM's maneuvering to coronate their choice for the GOP presidential nomination, Soros' covert investments in the 2012 presidential election, and Agenda 21's relation to progressivism and the Occupy movement.
Today I will address not only exactly what the goal and meaning of progressives' "fundamentally transforming the United States of America" are but also what I believe we can do to stop that onslaught from overturning our republic.
What is critical to keep in mind is progressives' goal. It isn't merely to sustain a Democratic administration and majority or to control the different strata of society, including Main Street and Wall Street. It is about the total transformation of the United States.
Fellow culture warrior and New York Times best-seller Robert Ringer stated it well: "Whether it's the Occupy Wall Street protesters, rioters in Greece, public workers defacing the state capitol building in Madison, Wisconsin, or thugs tearing down the city of Oakland, brick by brick, they are all focused on the same objective: equal distribution of wealth and a classless society. They may not use the word communism, but communism is precisely what they yearn for."
The social psychology being used by the progressives and liberal media on many trusting and unsuspecting Americans (including many in the Occupy movement) is nothing short of another play taken straight from Saul Alinsky's playbook, "Rules for Radicals": "A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order or the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage — the political paradise of communism."
Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci was famous for his idea of cultural hegemony. Wikipedia defines it as a "philosophic and sociological theory ... that a culturally diverse society can be dominated (ruled) by one social class, by manipulating the societal culture (beliefs, explanations, perceptions, values) so that its ruling-class worldview is imposed as the societal norm, which then is perceived as a universally valid ideology and status quo beneficial to all of society, whilst benefiting only the ruling class."
Ringer noted that in "The Communist Manifesto," Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels summarized the plan this way: "In short, the Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Working men of all countries, unite!"
And Vladimir Lenin stressed the importance of this social change: "We say that our morality is wholly subordinated to the interests of the class struggle of the proletariat."
To progressives, the masses don't need to understand the principles; they just need to stand up for them. In fact, it's actually better that they remain ignorant. Alinsky stated it this way: "Here our concern is with the tactic of taking; how the HaveNots can take power away from the Haves."
The truth is that the only way out of this slippery slope is to help educate the masses about the uniqueness of our republic and push back on the tides of progressivism, socialism and communism. That is also why I expanded the paperback version of my New York Times best-seller "Black Belt Patriotism" (http://www.BlackBeltPatriotism.com), which gives America's Founding Fathers' solutions for our modern problems.
I am a firm believer in studying history. It can help us not to repeat the mistakes of our past and to recognize evil when it surfaces. It is also good to make a habit of educating ourselves and finding answers to what we are facing in America, which Curtis Bowers did in his very insightful documentary, "Agenda: Grinding America Down."
Thomas Jefferson's wisdom still points the way out of this mess: "Educate and inform the whole mass of the people. Enable them to see that it is their interest to preserve peace and order, and they will preserve them. And it requires no very high degree of education to convince them of this. They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty."
Ronald Reagan stated it this way: "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same."
But does that sound like the way of Wall Street occupiers, Soros, Obama and the MSM?
While Occupy protesters accuse Wall Street of stealing their pocketbooks, the MSM and progressives are seeking to steal and control the American mind.
That's the real question every American and occupier should be answering: Which do you value more, your money or your brain?
