As regular readers will already know, when it comes to matters of right and wrong, I have a strong moral compass. I do not see gray. In fact, I have said and I still say that, where right and wrong are concerned, if you see gray, that is a good indication that you are on the wrong side of right. So, when I stumbled across this while doing some personal research, some bells started going off and I realized that this is what I have been sensing in ALL of our political Parties (as well as a growing majority of the American people):
Sociologist Robert Nisbet defines social disintegration:
“…social disintegration is really nothing more than the spectacle of a rising number of individuals playing fast and loose with other individuals in relationships of trust and responsibility.” (Whistleblower, America’s Gay Obsession, pp. 18, 38, 39)
In other words, in an amoral hedonistic society such as America has become, we can no longer trust the people we need to trust. And now, as the “gay” newspaper, the Washington Blade triumphantly reports, high-profile conservatives:
There’s more, and you can read it here (Rise of the modern Moloch state….global spiritual communism)
But understand, while I also agree with the narrower focus of this site, what caught my attention was the broader implications in these words:
“…social disintegration is really nothing more than the spectacle of a rising number of individuals playing fast and loose with other individuals in relationships of trust and responsibility.”
In other words, in an amoral hedonistic society such as America has become, we can no longer trust the people we need to trust.
This goes straight to the heart of the matter: we can’t trust anyone anymore. How many times have we sent someone we thought was a “good person” to Washington only to have them apparently “turn” on us and start doing the exact opposite of what we sent them there to do? Now, why is that, I wonder? Could it possibly be connected to the popular notion that we need to wield political power rather than stand on principle? And that to get political power, we need to compromise and get re-elected, and all that other jazz our leaders feed us? But politics is nothing more than the art of compromise, and once you start to compromise on matters of right and wrong, you have already started your merry little stroll down the gold-paved road to hell – which is exactly where this nation is headed, and for exactly this reason.
OH! And, incidentally, this is also Baal/Moloch worship: self over God.
