Destroy the family, You Destroy the Country!

I recently attended a discussion on aging given by Tim Dutton from Sarasota County Openly Promotes Excellence. Tim pointed out that Florida has the oldest population of all fifty states. He also noted that Sarasota County has the oldest population of all of the 3,500 counties in the United States. Tim looks at Sarasota as a petri dish to learn more about how to cater to those over 55. I, however, look at this as a looming disaster facing not only Sarasota County and Florida but countries around the world. The title of this column is a direct quote  from Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, the first leader of the former Soviet Union.

Lenin's vision was for the state (Communism) to replace the family as the provider of all things necessary for life and happiness. What Lenin did not foresee was his political policies leading to the eventual extinction of Russian civilization. Please let me explain.

Everything from our national security, economy, and future well-being depends on our ability to procreate.

Jerome Koch in the American Thinker column, "Where Have All the Children Gone? " states, "As Mark Steyn quipped, '...a people that won't multiply can't go forth or go anywhere. Those who do will shape the age we live in.'"

Jerome refers in his column, using multiple sources, to the Total Fertility Rates (TFR) measured in children per female across the globe.  Jerome reports:

...[T]hat from a TFR of 4.78 in 1970, the global fertility rate fell to 2.56 in 2010. If one is to glance at individual nations, he will notice that some of the lowest rates are in Europe and the former USSR. Poland has a TFR of 1.26, Romania's is 1.20, and the Ukraine's is under 1.3. In Italy, Greece, Spain, France, the UK, Germany and Portugal the TFRs are below 1.5. Scandinavia as a whole fares a little better with TFR's just under 1.9 children per female. But, before these north European nations put themselves on their backs, it should be noted that Scandinavia has very large and fertile Islamic minority population. It is the immigrant populations that are reproducing, and not the hosts." [My emphasis]

Any culture whose TFR falls below 1.8 children per female cannot recover and will become extinct.

How does America fare in all of this? According to Jonathan:

"The fertility trends in the United States mirror global trends.  Jonathan Last pointed out  that our fertility rates have been falling ever since our Founding.  From an average of over 7 children per female in  the late 18th Century to a nadir of less than 2.1 during the Great Depression, it was only the period 1945-1965 did our TFR's actually increase.  During the Baby Boom years the TFR reached a peak in 1960 (3.6 children per female).  But by 1980 our TFR sank to 1.8 . It currently stands at just over 2.0 (2.06) thanks in large part to immigration (both legal and illegal)"

What is keeping America's fertility rate up are immigrants - both legal and illegal.

There are those in America who are continuously attacking the family, bent on redefining marriage and have established anti-family government programs. This has led to downward pressure on our national total fertility rate. All of these actions are done in the name of various causes such as: reducing unwanted pregnancies, delaying child bearing to further career goals and even promoting childlessness and promoting adoption as a better option.

Child bearing has become something distasteful to many women, an unwanted and painful experience to be avoided rather than embraced.

All of these programs, ideals and ideologies are doing one thing and one thing only - reducing America core TFR to the point of no return. The White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) population in America is headed for extinction and with it our economy, well-being and survival as a uniquely America culture.

This county is dying not because it is aging, it is dying because of infertility as public policy.

Cliff, you sound as if you are an atheistl, with nothing to live for than the 'here and now'. IF that is really true, what gives us the basis for any 'morality'? This is why Communists are officially 'Atheists'.  After all, if there are no 'laws' from a 'higher power, whatever we say, do or force others to do is 'right'!  Even Aldous Huxley admitted that he loved evolution because it eliminated any need for a 'God'; and THUS you could enjoy any sexual proclivity that you should entertain.  That certainly sounds similar and also very fun, doesn't it?

Even the Scriptures acknowledge that if there is no 'God', then let's eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die!  (I Corinthians 15)  If there is no God then there are no absolutes. There is no right or wrong way, simply the way we live. SInce there are several human activities that are very enjoyable, we can't condemn those who pursue such activities, because pleasure is the highest 'good'.

However, from such a mindset there are only two ultimate conclusions that would logically result. Either there would be complete anarchy, where everyone 'did what is right in their own eyes; OR there would be totalitarianism, where the one who acquires the most power controls the world.  There is nothing you could say to me that logically would prevent me from using my intellect, force and power to acquire from you or anyone else anything I desire, without your permission.  Without an 'ultimate' or 'higher power' there is no basis for morality.

 

That is why our Founders wrote, "...We hold these truths self-evident, that all men.. are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights." The Founders knew that the Giver of these rights also gave us laws.  That is the only way to judge that the British actions were "immoral".   Thnk about these ideas. Try to prove me wrong!

Anna, I hope that you will share this regret with your friends and Tea Party.

 

What MOST people don't know is that the Communist Manifesto expressly promoted the destruction of the family unit as one of the prerequisites of instituting 'Worldwide Socialism'.  IF you took the time to read the 32 typewritten, doublespaced pages, you would be shocked to see everything proposed in their 'articles of faith', as the leaders of the Communist League of Europe first called the project of publicizing their aims and objectives! When I first read it ten years ago, my first words were, "My Lord, it's the Democratic Party Platform!!"

 

There are Seven "Abolitions" and Ten "Planks". Just let me list the first group necessary for the Ten Planks:

 

1. The concept of personal property, that is the right to the fruits of your own labor.  It belongs to the 'state'.

2. The Family, along with homeschooling. The wife and children were simply tools of the bourgeious husband.

3. Marriage between one man and one woman.  Instead there was to be a 'community of wives'  or basically "Free Love". Does anyone remember the sixties?  Didn't know that Marx & the Communists promoted this concept, did you!

4. National Borders and sovereignty of any country. They advocated a "One World Government" or 'global governance'.  Sound Familiar?

The last three Marx grouped together because they are all very interrelated:

5. Eternal Truths (There are NO Absolutes! Except this one, of course!)

6. Religion

7. Morality

 The goal was that Communist leaders would tell you what is right or wrong, the State was your religion and whatever they tell you is the truth and whatever they order you to do is 'Moral'.

 

Destruction of the Family is simply part of any invader or conquerer's job in order to control the defeated nation. We did it to the Native Americans and to Blacks with the 'Great Society' welfare laws.

Homo Sapiens as a species is doing quite well in procreation. Actually we reproduce like Lemmings. In 1930 there were 2 billion people. Now 6 to 7 billion. And in the US we have up to 70% illegitimacy. How about that? Some people bring children into the world and refuse to provide for them. Provide no home, no discipline, no love. Wild animals do better than that.

Each year the population is increasing by a hundred million souls needing food, shelter, clothing, medical care, education, civilizing, etc. Folks it ain't going to happen.

Count yourself lucky to have had a mom and dad and food and a home. If you went to college you are in the top 1% of all people. If you are free of pain, you are truly blessed. 

Why are we here? Where are we going? What is my purpose? We are caretakers of the earth and humanity for a short period and then we are extinguished. Life seems endless when you are young. As you get older you  realize time flew by. Try to love your family. Teach the children. Help your neighbor. Leave a little money so the grandchildren are educated. Live within your means. Try to enjoy each day.

I'm childfree and sterilized and not ashamed of either of those things - because there's nothing shameful about them.
Comment by AnnaSchroeder on March 29, 2011 at 9:35pm

I am a 32 year old woman, who had also embraced the idea of not reproducing beyond two children, by having my tubes tied.  I had realized prior to reading this; that that many other nationalities in the US continue to reproduce.  I have begun to feel all alone in my desire for discipline and the belief in God.  I realize that if I would have had more children I would have more future citizens to teach core values, Patriotism, and the desire to work.  I regret my decision and I hope more people read this article and teach their children the importance of reproducing.

The family is under attack... and it is not something new!
Comment by Gregg D Armstrong on March 29, 2011 at 5:34pm

Hi Ellen,

 

I spread the blame pretty broadly:

 

o  Yes, I blame on parents, but not to a great extent.  I'm trying not to make excuses.  But, I don't put a large percentage squarely on today's parents. Mind this process has been building up for at least a generation. That's a lot of past and present parents.

o  Note kids get 6 hours of indoctrination by public schools 5 days a week.  The lucky one's who have been taught to think for themselves can resist the indoctrination.  It's hard to counter public schools with one Sunday for a few hours and maybe an hour per night.  Both parents have to work to make ends meet.  It's quite a job, what with homework, rapidly approaching bedtime for the kids and exhaustion for the adults;

o  Our Ancestors allowed our Constitutional Republic to be chipped away slowly and steadily.  These problems have been brewing for a century, slowly but steadily building up momentum;

o  corrupt, short-term thinking politicians, but they've always been that way;

o  Our own apathy in letting our situation get this bad, for the past decade or more;

o  Congress giving away some of it's Constitutional powers (coinage of money) to the Federal Reserve.  Beware of unintended consequences: a prime example being the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.  Andrew Jackson nailed it when he terminated the first equivalent of the Fed (in the 1840's?) while he was President.

o  The US dollar is doomed due to a steady 40 years of deficit spending.  It loses purchasing power every year. Politicians wouldn't do anything about it 30 years ago and won't do anything about it today because it's political suicide.  They'd rather see martial law in the streets after the dollar collapses than to do anything about it now;

I could go on.  But the fact of the matter is that we're doomed financially and lifestyle.  We're in a fatal debt spiral.  The US admits to a national debt of about $14.3 trillion.  It holds a lot of worthless assets bought from all of the subprime players for 100 cents on the dollar.  They may be worth 10 cents on the dollar if marked to market.  It has about $66 trillion in unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare.  The states have cumulative budget shortfalls of over $1 trillion.  There pension shortfalls are in the $hundreds of billions.  Is the Federal government going to bail them out?

 

I'm pretty tired so I'm gloomier than I would normally be.

 

Thanks for your comments.

 

Gregg

You are right on, but there is even something more sinister in all this.  I don't know the actual TFR but I have read that the Islamic birthrate exceeds 8.0+.  Cast that beside the fact the Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, and in 20 to 25 years will exceed all of Christianity.  Strangely enough the conversion rate to Islam since 9-11 has more than doubled in the United States, and some say it has reached a high of around 8 to 9%.  The primary conversion areas are in the large cities, in the lower income areas.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see how in time the Islamic population will start to challenge the American culture and with enough voting power they will entrench themselves into all offices of the government and the final outcome will be Shariah law.  They will have won without firing a shot.

right you are, but probe deeper. most of the ideas and habits that we have been urged to adopt are directed to extermination. shocking, all those ideas, where did they come from? we were all duped for the past 40 years or so and now we find it is too late. we have already paid the price
