Ehud Would’s recent piece from Faith and Heritage was titled ‘The Christian Right Gone Left’, and I realized in looking at it again that it somewhat ties in with my recent posting about the apparent demise of social conservatism.
We know that any institution that is not self-consciously conservative or right-wing will inevitably turn to the left over time. We see that in the secular realm, in politics and sadly in the social sphere. Even worse is that the Christian ‘right’ has apparently been seduced by The World now.
The illustration is from the Faith and Heritage piece aforementioned.
I recommend that article as well as this one, Modern Advertising as Leftist Propaganda, by David Carlton. It’s hard to escape the influence of advertising and pop culture, no matter how hard we try to seal ourselves off from it, and some of us do try. At the very least, it exercises a second-hand influence as we (and our children) come into contact with people who live and breathe pop culture in all its potent forms. And the simple act of going out in public means that we are exposed to all the propaganda in some form or other, by means of advertising billboards, music played in retail stores and restaurants, magazine covers, even the boxes of certain products like disposable diapers (very few White children there). A large poster in my local supermarket announces that the grocery chain “values diversity”, showing a store manager with several employees of different races.
The sheer ubiquity of the memes is staggering. It takes some determination to stand up to it. I don’t have a ready solution; we can only hope and pray that the tide has to turn back to sanity sooner or later.
The seemingly all-powerful ‘System’ may be its own worst enemy as they keep pushing more and more until it reaches a point of absurdity, and it all begins to crumble of its own weight, a victim to its own contradictions. They can’t seem to resist overplaying their hand. I hope that will eventually be their undoing.
