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.
There are many drivers behind this dynamic, but in the end, they are all tools of the NWO. That may sound conspiratorial, but the American Experiment has had its enemies almost from the beginning. That subject will be taken up in future additions in this series.
This essay will deal with the first, and and most recognizable one, the family. The biggest tools in the box of its destruction are "Women's Issues", The Sexual Revolution, and Gay Rights.
No this writer is most certainly not a bigot, the objection is to the manipulation of legitimate issues into a false narrative designed to seduce the collective I.Q. into believing the meme of the day..
For women, equal work for equal pay was the first battle cry and the most honest. Yes, there were archaic attitudes towards women in the past, but much has changed. In most Western societies, women are light years ahead of where they were in mid twentieth century.
The false narrative became that one can have it all, a career and marriage if desired with no emotional or physical exhaustion. Sexual freedom is now possible because the threat of an unwanted pregnancy can be eliminated via contraceptives or abortion. No worries, no stress. Millions of women found that to be a falsehood, but many felt guilty because they could not live up to the superwoman expectation, nor even in good conscience follow the trend that belittled marriage and children. Many women continue to opt out of marriage and motherhood under the belief that neither is a worthy pursuit. Many more are disillusioned and feel that there is no real hope for a meaningful relationship that can lead to marriage. Strains upon the family institution are inevitable in such an environment.
The following excerpt from A Heavy Toll for Today's Young Women The fallout from the sexual revolution continues undiminished by Colleen Carroll Campbell is an accurate reflection of much of what is occurring today.
The power differential between men and women that Bolick only hints at is explored in eye-popping detail is Lost in Transition: The Dark Side of Emerging Adulthood, a new book by lead author and sociologist Christian Smith.
Smith’s study finds that the strings-free sex Steinem and her fellow revolutionaries championed has left many young women feeling more used than empowered, with poorer prospects for finding lifelong love than their female forebears enjoyed. After quoting one woman after another lamenting the emptiness of the hook-up culture and her thwarted dreams of lasting love, Smith concludes that Hollywood depictions of the joys of youthful sexual exploration bear little resemblance to reality.
“All is not well among the emerging adults who inherited the sexual revolution launched by their parents and grandparents in the 1960s and ’70s”, Smith writes. “... [N]ot far beneath the surface appearance of happy, liberated emerging adult sexual adventure and pleasure lies a world of hurt, insecurity, confusion, inequality, shame and regret”.
Such messy emotions rarely surface in feel-good documentaries or magazine paeans to perpetual singledom. Yet they are worth contemplating, not only for young women pressured to sell themselves short in today’s sexual marketplace but for all the St. Glorias out there whose failure to distinguish license from liberation exacted a heavy toll from the next generation.
The institution of marriage and family are further derided and ridiculed by the issue of gay rights Prior to the militancy expressed by the present LGBT groups, the majority of the citizenry probably did not really care about the issue. Nothing gets one's attention like a foaming at the mouth, screaming meemie in the face making accusations that are probably not true.
Yes, religion is being tested by this movement, but that will be taken on later, for now, lets focus on attack on marriage and the family.
The LGBT agenda is to undermine the institution of marriage, not the promotion of gay marriage.
In most civilizations traditional marriage is considered a fundamental institution and the backbone of a stable society.
Yet today we're seeing one of the greatest attempts at social reengineering in history in the fight to uproot the definition of marriage to include same-sex partners. It threatens the very foundation of the traditional family already battered by the prevalence of premarital sex, unmarried couples living together and rampant divorce.
As with every major political movement, the homosexual lobby is pushing a specific agenda. It is often called the "gay agenda." At its core is a concerted effort to remove from society all traditional notions of sexual morality and replace them with the post-modern concept of sexual relativism. That is to say, when it comes to sex, there is never right or wrong. All sexual appetites are "equal." If it feels good, do it.
Ultimately, the homosexual lobby's primary objective is to radically redefine our foundational institutions of legitimate marriage and the nuclear family by unraveling God's natural design for human sexuality. In so doing, they hope to elevate their own spiritual and biological counterfeit and establish a sexually androgynous society wherein natural distinctions between male and female are dissolved.
This creates cultural and moral anarchy.
We have seen the devastating results of the breakdown of the Black Family. Beware, it is a harbinger of things to come for our society should the cultural erosion of the family institution continue.
The destruction of the stable black family was set in motion by the policies and teachings of the left, which for decades have encouraged blacks to view themselves as outcasts from a hostile American society; to identify themselves as perpetual victims who are entitled to compensatory privileges designed to “level the playing field” in a land where discrimination would otherwise run rampant; and to reject “white” norms and traditions as part and parcel of the “racist” culture that allegedly despises blacks. It is not inconceivable that one of those traditions which many blacks have chosen to abjure is the institution of marriage. In their landmark book America in Black and White, Stephan and Abigail Thernstrom make this profoundly important observation:
“In the past three decades the proportion of intact married-couple families has declined precipitously even though the fraction of black women aged fifteen to forty-four who were divorced, separated, or widowed also went down.… It is thus not divorce but the failure to marry that has led to such a momentous change in black family patterns. The marriage rate for African Americans has plummeted in the past third of a century. In 1960 … [b]lack women were only a shade less likely to marry than white women.... Today a clear majority of African American women aged fifteen to forty-five have never been married, as compared with just a third of their white counterparts…. Many fewer black women are marrying, and yet they continue to have children—which was not the case in an earlier era.”
The common thread in all of the above is the inculcation of victimization into the target groups, and of outrage toward those deemed to be the oppressors. Again, the collective I.Q. comes into play. It is much easier to convince the masses than individuals. Once a narrative is established and ingrained into and a driver of the group psyche, it becomes the "truth".
In the following discussions of the assault upon our social institutions, the reader will see much overlapping and notice that frequently, one institution will be used to weaken others. In the end, it all ties together.
