SURVIVAL AND RENEWAL
Eugene Narrett, Ph.D
Vignettes from KS, LA and VA: the media hammered out a “Potomac primary” which may become a “Potomac” region, an expanded Federal District, further fracturing the “several states” that made America. Ron Paul was set at 4% and stayed there as if the counter was stuck. Mr. Obama again pledged a “free” College education for everyone to be paid for partly by serving the State. Ms. Clinton fled to Texas and declared she had found “a new extended family.” TV personalities said “a trap door had opened under her” as the telegenic ‘black’ man scored style points and “momentum” as the rush, always the rush to a future without a future was hurried by the jockeys’ whips. If he’s savvy, Mr. McCain will “reach out” with rhetoric to voters concerned about America.
Caveat emptor… Speaking of which, Mr. Bush pledges $30 billion to fight AIDS in Africa which, like illegal immigration, will help drain America.
While the economy crumbles and the Presidente of Mexico, a hostile foreign power harangues Americans about their bigotry for not entirely bailing out his regime of bandit oligarchs, the media repeat the need for the neutered GOP to “unify around” McCain and his Democratic policies. One fellow interviewed while bowling near Cleveland said he was a Republican undecided between Clinton and Obama (?) but would vote McCain because he was “not too conservative.” The hollowness of Obama as well as his bond to an anti-white and anti-Semitic church and pastor are whisked away; Hillary Clinton’s female appliance lurks behind her on daises and sidewalks, also ignored. Topping the tawdry machine, Ann Coulter declares that if McCain is nominated she will vote and campaign for Mrs. Clinton. Told this, the latter laughed and said “politics makes strange bedfellows.” Indeed…
But this essay is not about the horse race, its players, pace, clichés or lies; it notes some basic actions, principles, and goals needed for this nation to survive and be restored.
As Ron Paul stated in his speech to CPPAC, one must recognize that the effort to renew America pervades but also extends in scope and time far beyond his campaign for nomination. While it probably will be important to pursue a vigorous Constitutional third party campaign, investing time, attention, energy and money depends on events yet to be decided. Much may happen between now and mid-September on both the Red and Blue Teams; and much will be happening to America. Those who love the Republic need to have contingency plans and maximal ability to respond and open new directions of repair.
Among the things that are certain: it is important that Ron Paul remain in Congress and that he be a frequent and articulate spokesman for the low-tax, small government = more freedom essence of the American way. Secondly, it is certain that the media will ignore and, when not ignoring, mock and trivialize any third party nominee that articulates Constitutional approaches to American life and governance. As the oligarchs recruit and infiltrate, so must those who oppose their agenda pervade society; because there will be under-representation on Corporate Boards and Government Agencies, significant alternate centers of influence must be built. Plans should be made for communication if rules for internet or other exchanges are constrained.
Americans must beware plans to create a “centrist,” “Independent” party and to promote it with people like the mayor of New York and Governor of California as a “third party alternative” (Arnold said “it doesn’t get any better than this”) that will snuff out mention or attention for genuine alternatives. Some may recall a brief media boom for an amendment permitting a person born in another country (say, Germany or Mexico) to become President. At the time, Mr. Schwarzenegger was an apparent beneficiary of such ‘amending.’ Think of California’s intrusive laws and consider the Nazi campaign against smoking. These intrusions and acts to control are reasons why the NEA and its various re-education programs, the EPA, VAWA and other aspects of Central Control via family disintegration must be pruned back. Any policy, law or person that leads women to turn to government not men, eventually a husband for answers and love is a destroyer of humanity, destroyer of souls and promoter of slavery.
Those who realize that public schools are part of an industry of indoctrination and depravity must seek out and pay knowledgeable educators who truly can teach and inspire the classics of the Humanities.
While so-called “practical,” “centrist” “Independent” parties touted by the media need to be critiqued and shunned, Ron Paul must do everything he can to use his presence in the campaign, to and throughout the convention to articulate the saving ideas at the core of his message and movement.
An American Renewal movement must organize on a local level to maximize durability and persistence as the nation is driven to the impoverishment, violence, fragmentation and tyranny increasingly visible for decades and now firmly established in habits of mind, governmental powers and dependency. The period of massive insults to identity, directed first against American men and the family is generalizing into a time of massive insult to expectations of what life can and should be, of what a relationship and human being are and can be. Women must reject feminism, its arrogance and cruelty and men must expect them too, and this can be done only on a local level with support from local, non-government institutions. Foreclosures, regulations of where you can plant, sow, build or of what you can eat must end.
It may be too late, but the effort must be made.
This means an end to “no-fault” divorce; an end to tax-payer funded abortions and to all abortions after the fortieth day from conception at the latest for this is when a human being is “formed.” (There also is a strong case that a unique human being is present from conception  and this is the next goal). These changes, which are central to ordered liberty, require many cultural changes that hinge on shrinking the power of the Central Government and the nightmare of seduction, depravity, collectivist indoctrination and drugging that constitute our public school-“child-care” centers. These in turn require a return to the traditional family targeted by 19th century revolutionaries and their followers, to deference to husbands and fathers as decision-makers and teachers. This in turn means securing our borders, an end to outsourcing, and great reductions in (legal) immigration which should be mainly from nations that share our heritage of Republican limited powers and accountability. This is so fathers can find work instead of being sent to the back of every line and then to penury or prison.
During WW II the American government maintained a 55,000 person/year quota on Jewish immigration and made sure, at British insistence, that even this quota never was filled. Since the Jewish people were the source of this culture and form of accountable governance (see “Democracy, Tyranny and a Model of Ordered Liberty” in my archive) than this number ought to be halved or quartered for those from south and Central America who neither share nor model our institutions or values and are helping to destroy them. They have about forty states; why don’t they prosper there? Can’t the Vatican help them?
Given this history, perhaps America should cap Hispanic immigration at 20,000 a year for the next forty-two years to balance what has happened to this nation, now a collectivist welfare state with fascist imperial aspects, since the Kennedy immigration changes of 1965.
In addition to the economic and cultural changes that the above will help accomplish, American survival and renewal requires a Jeffersonian approach to balancing foreign trade with domestic development. Tariffs on imported goods to encourage local self-sufficiency – which our oligarchs are taking from us even in food, who would have believed this – and sound money based on fair weights and measures as stipulated in scriptures and civil law must become major talking points for policy and implementation with the help of local authorities. People must talk to each other about such matters.
To make all these life-restoring changes possible, they must not only become matters of regularly discussed policy, while forums for policy discussion still can be used, but be put into place on the local levels with the assistance and approval of local justice officials who will be beholden to the citizens in their area and to the higher law of the Ten Commandments to ensure that the Republic stays together and that, with the Constitution, insures that there is an objective, unchanging standard by which to judge behavior. The National Guard should be brought home to live among their people; with greatly reduced immigration, it may even be wise to have a draft to insure that those who serve represent the people and not an elite, detached force increasingly drawn from immigrants from hostile cultures, or taught by academic commissars to look with hostility at America. The founders cautioned against a standing army. The Constitution speaks to this.
This may not be sufficient but it is necessary for there to be some chance to restore and renew the Constitutional Republic that brought so many blessings to this nation. We are many decades into a process of disintegration that has been identified and now must be repaired.
Psalm 139:12-16; in Sanhedrin 91b2 on Job 10:12 most discussants emphasize
the moment of conception as the time of ensoulment; modern science
confirms the uniqueness of each human from this “moment of attention.”
