Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

I do believe that today most professors teaching journalism would advise their students to write what they want people to believe and deliver the message with such conviction that none would doubt that those words are true. That professor's advice would be somewhat ambiguous but if his students value readers more than they do truth, that is some fine advice. Were I addressing the same group of studentS I would recall a quote from Thomas Jefferson: "There is not a truth existing which I fear ... or would wish unknown to the whole world." There is nothing ambiguous in those words, and I follow that premise every time I sit down to my keyboard. Needless to say, I have paid for that pursuit of the truth, because the fact remains that so many really do not want to know.


Sociological Definition Of Religion:

A unified system of beliefs and practices pertaining to the supernatural and to norms about the right way to live that is shared by a group of believers. Sociologists treat religion as a social rather than supernatural phenomenon.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.   Karl Marx

There are times that I cannot help but admire the brazen audacity demonstrated by the communists and Progressive as they boldly tell America exactly what they are going to do. Hitler did that in writing 'Mein Kampf'. He laid out his plans in advance and there were only a few with the wisdom to take him at his word. Today we see the people of Iran chanting 'Death to America' and we cater to their every whim. Van Jones and his video about 'Top down, bottom up, inside out' detailed the Globalist plan for the insurrection coming soon to a neighborhood near you, and yet few feel threatened. This, by the way, is the link to that Van Jones video.

It is a sad fact that this nation is about to be swept into the dustbin of history and most of our people are totally oblivious to the fact. Ask most Americans to define 'Dark Ages' and I am betting that most could not. Ask those who can define it just when did the last dark age occur and why did it happen, and you will find the number of knowledgeable people greatly reduced. That thought brings to mind the premise that he who does not study history is doomed to repeat it. So has it always been; so will it always be. Sadly those of us who do study history are doomed to know what is coming as the ignorant refuse to listen and continue to repeat the errors of the past.

Recently a Facebook friend asked me how much time I actually spend on the internet. Now that is something that I had never really asked myself. Being retired my hours are much more flexible than most and after figuring eight to ten hours a day, dating back over five years, I concluded that I have spent in excess of fifteen thousand hours doing research and writing. Tiring? Somewhat. Frustrating? Without a doubt? Ever going to quit? Not a chance in hell. Admittedly, due to all of the bad policies and events that I read and write about, occasionally even I need a good laugh, and a few days ago I got one. Due to my extensive research I have become certain that most are wrong in believing Obama to be a Muslim. He is a dedicated atheist communist using Muslims to further the communist agenda. After mentioning this in a recent essay, one reader with an alias called me a 'Noobie'. Now that made my day as I would love to meet anyone better informed than I.

Educated Or Indoctrinated?
This is the second in a series regarding the planned destruction of our social institutions. Part One discussed the assault upon the family, Part Two will discuss education and its evolution from teaching to propagandizing.

Education is defined as a formal process in which knowledge, skills, and values are systematically transmitted from one individual or group to another. It appears as though our institution of education has moved from the above definition towards mind control, at least that is the fear of many parents. First a brief review of the American system and then a discussion on what is taking place today.

I am certain that most of my readers have heard the Joseph Stalin quote "The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic." Only a totally heartless human being could have such an outlook. One such a man is Barrack Hussein Obama, and he is proving it every single day. Several years ago when fifty one percent of this nation were singing Obama's praises, a large portion of the remaining forty nine percent were saying that Obama was incompetent. I have never believed that; writing instead that his apparent incompetence was actually a carefully crafted agenda designed to bring total anarchy and chaos to the world, as part of the plan to destroy western culture.

You know, I rather like the title I chose for this essay, but in all fairness the choice of a title is quite flexible. I could also have called it 'The Democrats ... Scourge Of The West' and still had the same impact. After all both share a common goal while the major difference between the two is one of honesty and semantics. Islam, at least a great many of their adherents, openly admit their goal is to take control of this nation and its people, forcing their seventh century beliefs on the unwary. The Democratic Party, on the other hand, also taking advantage of the unwary are quite simply selling us out to the highest bidder. Again, in all fairness, I could also have given this essay the title of 'Republicans ... Scourge Of The West'. They are simply a little less obvious in their treason; always posturing against Obama and always caving with the promise, "We'll get him next time." Between the jackasses and the elephant in the room we can freely claim that we have the best politicians that money can buy.

The ethos of the nation state is determined by the nature of its social institutions which are established or standardized patterns of rule-governed behavior. They include the family, education, religion, and economic and political institutions.
For a brief overview of the above and of different ideologies regarding them go here.

The focus of this series is not to persuade the reader into which theory is right, best, etc. but simply to enumerate and discuss what social institutions are, and how a society can be broken and eventually destroyed by undermining them. Many are already aware of much of the following, but may see a different perspective on what has been happening for many decades.

An overwhelming sense of weariness assails me as I of read many of today's current events. Weary yes, surprised no, as our future slowly is revealed as though it were a great tapestry being unrolled before our eyes. Sadly, that future is so very predictable once you understand the driving force behind it. Before our last election I angered some of those who still had faith in the Republicans we were sending to Washington. I warned that nothing would change as both parties are in lock step with an agenda that is destroying this nation. Now, looking back, many realize that I was correct. Looking forward, for those who dare, reveals the same. The only thing that will change is that the treasonous will grow in power as we the people are left behind.

Think back to the sixties, if you are old enough, and recall the phrase of the day ... "God is dead." While I am uncertain about who first made that comment, it spread like wildfire through our drug addled community of those days. Many of those who adopted that concept are now the leaders of the 21st century and it shows in our rapid moral decline. We see it in the dumbing down of Americans, in the increasing violence on our streets, in the political agenda of our elected leaders, and in a people who care not at all about right and wrong, concentrating totally on their own biased agenda. But nothing I can think of will better epitomize our moral decay than does the following story from Florida of a crowded beach in Florida where the masses gathered around, men, women, and children, and watched as a woman was gang raped; doing nothing to prevent this crime. Land of the Free and the home of the Brave ... Indeed!

Ladies, gentlemen, friends, of Fix Bayonets, I would like to introduce you to an emerging talent. I could not help but notice the intelligence apparent in comments Dee Fatouros has left to some of my essays. To that end I have asked her to consider taking on the burden of becoming a regular contributor and thankfully she has agreed. Read her words, heed her thoughts and views. This lady understands the Big Picture as do few others.

And so without further ado, I give you the efforts of Dee Fatouros...


Those who dwell within the comfort of their own false reality are completely unaware of their constraints and content as long as they have enough space, food, water, and basic comforts that keep coming. They are easily manipulated and are indeed unwitting allies in their own suppression.

Looking back seventy years we describe the American people of those days as the 'Greatest Generation'. I shudder at the thought of how the historians seventy years hence will describe us. Perhaps they will use such terms as the 'Craven Generation', the 'Lost Generation', the 'Last Generation', or they may choose to become very descriptive and simply settle for 'The Idiots', for it is with us that liberty will either find a dramatic rebirth or slowly settle into the oozing swamp of apathy and die. Personally I see nothing in our behavior patterns that would seem to indicate a new burst of freedom on the horizon, and so it would appear that we are off to the swamps. What a dismal end for such a magnificent effort! God once blessed America. It would seem that is no longer the case.

I think back to my youth in the fifties and recall television and the messages it delivered. There was Superman, Wyatt Earp, Wagon Train, Gunsmoke and others. TV provided us with an unending saga of the kind of people who built this nation and the fight against good and evil. For the kids we had Howdy Doody and his efforts to stop the evil Phineas T. Bluster. Gone are the days when Matt Dillon and Howdy Doody fought evil. Gone too is the age old struggle between good and evil as today's culture has come to a moral impasse and our degraded beliefs have led many of our people into the nether world of moral equivalence.

All across the nations of the west an unprecedented sort of invasion is occurring. This strange incursion by foreign populations is a never before seen event as people pour out of the Middle East, central Europe, and Africa leaving behind the nations of their birth and moving to the richer nations of Europe. Those rich nations will not long remain rich due to their socialist inspired welfare systems and the massive influx of the poor signing up for benefits. Meanwhile, here in the United States the same groups assail our way of life as well, but not nearly to the extent as are those from south of our national border.

As the days of America's future dwindle down to a precious few I take to my keyboard with a self imposed mission, that being to record the fall and a hope to minimize our casualties. I have long since come to terms with the reality that through America's collapse the death toll will be staggering and the misery felt by all so very hard to bear that many will break under the strain. My coming to terms with another reality is far more difficult, that being that so very few are even aware of the danger. They live comfortably in a fantasy world where their entertainment schedule is far more relevant than the madmen of the Middle East building nuclear weapons, with which to attack this nation, with the approval of our elected leader. We live on the edge of oblivion and most are blind to the danger. My God, my God, what has happened to the American people?

FDR once told America that "We have nothing to fear but fear itself." Brave, foolish, and stupid words from a man who was taking control of a nation deeply immersed in the Great Depression. A man that history shows made every effort to deepen that recession and turn America into a socialist state. World War Two was all that prevented his planned agenda. While we no longer hear those words voiced about our current fears, the concept is alive and well as we are constantly bombarded with the nonsense that Islam is a religion of peace. We are told that Islamic nations are third world countries that can become as prosperous and peaceful as the west as long as we introduce democracy to a people still trapped in the seventh century. Oh yes ... and let us not forget Jobs.

The following is a comment left by Dee Fatouros in response to my latest essay, Some Still Have Doubts. This lady really understands the Big Picture, and in doing so, she is a leader. Heed her words:

'The elitist globalist agenda includes the elimination of freedom of choice for the individual, and the sovereignty of all nation states. To do so, they need horrific chaos so that they can pose as "rescuers" who can bring order via a one world government with guarantees of peace everlasting. 
They have many political tools in their box to accomplish their goal, Islamism, Communism, Socialism, Progressivism, etc. The common denominator is the encouragement of Collective Thought, or one can call it the "Hive Mind"-----the Collective I.Q. is extraordinarily easy to manage.. 
This dynamic of destruction is being fueled by the little recognized weakening of the major social institutions---the economic, family, educational, military, and political structures. Once the tenets and mores of a culture have been so weakened as to be suffering from internal rot, the "rescuers" step in and totalitarianism is birthed. 
Let us take a hard look at just how far down the road we are on this global Highway To Hell with the complicity of the "authorities".'
