The first statement of a world without negative sanctions is this: “Hath God said?”
— Gary North, Sinek on the Millennials: Apologist for Snowflakes
And so, you see the actual goal of the Collectivist Committees, the Tolerance Committees, and the Welfare State: to insure that there are no negative sanctions for wicked actions and evil people, while there are tons of (government-fueled) negative sanctions for godly people and righteous actions.
This is impossible without a lot of lies, slavery, theft, and murder.
- Murder (abortions) to eliminate the negative sanction of lawless fornication;
- Murder (war) to steal from other nations and keep the Friends of the People’s Military Machine well-funded
- Theft (via taxation), to take money from people the Masters don’t like, to spend on people the Masters do like; from Planned Parenthood to warfare
- Theft (via debt financing), to steal money from future generations, to fund expenditures today for the comfortable middle class
- Nearly all of the old back the Saviour State, by the way. The planned destruction of the family and it’s replacement by government health care and government pensions has had its effect.
- Lies (via the media and academia), to justify everything, and keep the people’s focus on the latest exercise of contempt by the Compassionate Ones.
I recall one prominent Republican insist that Deficits Don’t Matter. His falsehood is unlikely to harm him personally in this life, and his faith is shared by the vast majority of American citizens, and the West in general, regardless of party politics.
When the falsehood is revealed as such, there will be a lot of suffering.
The corrupt old people will certainly wail the most. You know, the Responsible Elders who brought in no-fault divorce, abortions, legalized homosexuality, secularism, political correctness, etc, as well as the debt-loaded welfare state. They have the positions of power, and will fight tooth and nail to keep what they have as they go down with the ship.
(And as they do so, you can be sure they will toss overboard any and all competitors for the money and the power, with their pet minorities being the first to go, then the military, with the middle-class welfare state being the very last thing to go.)
Only the corporations and the senior banks will outlast the geezers. but when the last New York major bank effectively goes bust, that will mark the end of the New Order.
The corrupt young people will wail as well. They are weak snowflakes, though, led by the nose by the elders who despise them even as they use them, and are largely irrelevant: they have no God to fight for, no family to protect, no sense of justice to defend. Just the demand to Comply and Obey, as the Party demands.
And when the Party has no money or positions to bribe with? When Establishment Sanctions have no meaning?
I fully expect massive criminality from them when the Snowflakes realize that they have been well and truly gutted, though: by Democrats as well as Republicans.
(True: they may surprise, and undergo a massive groundswell of repentance before God. As no such thing happened in Eastern Europe, or Greece, or Spain, regardless of the consequences for their sins and folly, I will not be holding my breath.)
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. — Jesus, Matthew 23:33-36
Jesus was taking about the judgement that was sure to come in His generation, and did arrive at AD 70, with the destruction of the Temple and the end of the nation of Israel.
That being said, His words remain a model of what is to come.
Since at least 1660, the West has increasingly poured contempt on God and His word.
Prices have been increasingly paid for it, from the decline of Western fertility in the 19th century, to the world wars (so costly in blood and treasure, for so little gain — or no gain at all), to the end of European global dominance.
Has there been consequences for the intense European contempt for God?
But there has been no repentance, and I suggest that there will be no repentance.
Admittedly, a few European political leaders are willing to give a little lip-service to God. There is no actual public repentance though, not from the leaders, and not from the people.
There has been some cross-waving, here and there. But no repentance.
As is true in Europe, so it is increasingly true in America.
Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
— Jesus, Matthew 23:38
Thanks to the central banks and the welfare state, negative sanctions have been pushed further and further into the future, just as the masses demand, regardless of their party.
This will continue until widespread economic failure occurs: first with the destruction of much of the accumulated wealth of the 1%, and then, as surely as night follows day, with the destruction of the welfare state.
(For who else funds the welfare state, but the wealthy? Certainly the taxes of the poor and the middle classes can’t pay for it!)
With the coming end of banker rule, the people could turn to God and repent; but if today’s world is any indication, the masses are going to turn to the Mighty Men for their salvation instead.
Bible readers know better.
And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king.
And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.
And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.
But very few Christians read their Bible.
(I wonder how many can even name four of the ten Commandments…)
The Biblical Law demands Justice, Freedom, and Self-discipline. Most people — certainly including the vast majority of Christians, as well as all collectivists, nationalist or internationalist — despise such things, as they mean responsibility before God: and most everyone loathes the consequences of responsibility, and hates the supposed burden of obedience.
“My yoke is easy, and my burden is light,” proclaimed King Jesus.
“But The People’s Friend promises no yoke, and no burden at all!” cried the masses.
He of the forked tongue smiled, knowing how much a sinful people loved to buy political promises.
As for reality… the bill will arrive in time, and the people will discover the value of a politician’s promise. The yokes and burdens of Satan will arrive in due course, and they will be neither light nor easy…
So I expect that the West will get the Masters they long for. Any Political Saviour will do, so long as it isn’t Jesus Christ.
And in time, the people will cry out… and God will not hear them, in that day.
I don’t blame God at all.
It’s time for people – and civilizations – to lay on the bed they made.
It’s time for the Law of Consequences to kick in.
It’s time for all debts to be paid off.
