In our United States of America, there are people from over a hundred nations within our borders, for different reasons. They come from different cultural, political, and historical backgrounds yet for those who have been given citizenship through the Naturalization process, the cultural expectation that they should embrace our American culture has been diminishing over the past 60 years.
What has been the main driver for this change in our country?
In our public schools and most universities, postmodernism mixed with Marxism has become a pervasive world view in their faculties. Over time this world view has been infused into the curriculum thus creating graduation classes of insecure collectivists, some Nihilists, with most basing their pursuits in existentialism.
So with no basis for their origins, no absolute truths, they move through life consigned to give up individualism, for collectivism, and unconsciously do not go outside the group think on an array of issues. They know if they do, will find themselves isolated by the “democratic” mob ruled cancel culture.
When professors who thoughts are the genesis of some of these teachings, start the snowball effect down the hills of their student’s lives, it is no surprise that in their narcissism, make judgments and develop solutions to fix the wrongs they perceive through their ivory castle eyes.
Look at former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich’s idea of fixing America in a post-Trump Presidency nation.
On Saturday Reich called for the creation of a truth and reconciliation commission to “erase Trump’s lies” and expose those who “enabled” them.
“When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission,” Reich tweeted. “It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.”
After he took flak from those accusing him of promoting totalitarianism,
Reich then posted a link to an article from The Conversation explaining the history of truth and reconciliation commissions and how they are supposedly intended to rectify historical injustices and heal the wounds of division.
From the article;
“The goal of a truth commission — in some forms also called a truth and reconciliation commission, as it is in Canada — is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past.”
“The hope has been that restorative justice would provide greater healing than the retributive justice modelled most memorably by the Nuremberg Trials after the Second World War.” It concluded by claiming the United States needs a truth and reconciliation commission because of its “centuries of enslavement, state-sponsored racism, denial of civil rights and ongoing economic and social disparity.”
Reich’s idea echoed that of MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who earlier this month also called for a truth and reconciliation commission to “deal with” those who question COVID-19 protocols.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes raised eyebrows when he floated the idea of a “truth and reconciliation commission” as “the most humane and reasonable way to deal” with those who seemingly question the received wisdom regarding how best to protect against COVID-19.
Hayes’ comment came in response to a tweet from American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, who was himself responding to a tweet from NBC News presidential historian Michael Beschloss, who said, “Why is a sick President riding in an SUV waving to supporters outside Walter Reed, jeopardizing the Secret Service agents inside the car with him?”
Beschloss was referring to President Donald Trump’s brief drive on Sunday past supporters who had assembled outside Walter Reed Medical Center during his convalescence there. Some criticized the move as “reckless,” and The Washington Post reported that “current and former Secret Service agents and medical professionals were aghast” the president would lock himself inside a hermetically sealed car with others while having the coronavirus. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) even demanded that the Secret Service brief Congress on the incident.
Referencing the fact that Trump was masked and his Secret Service agents decked out in necessary PPE, Schlapp tweeted in response, “So masks don’t work? I’m confused.”
Quote-tweeting Schlapp, Hayes wrote, “The most humane and reasonable way to deal with all these people, if we survive this, is some kind of truth and reconciliation commission.”
For those of us in the real world, we see daily the ramifications of Reich’s and other Godless world views, which would sit very comfortably on the table of tyrannical fascists leaders of the 20th century.
Their reasoning; When in doubt set up a commission of bureaucrats, put in place by those who thirst for power. Using their “higher intellect” they correct the wrongs, that they perceive, for the dumbed-down citizens, and if needed, enforce the changes through coercion.
Our reasoning, smaller government, less regulations, and the removal of laws that restrict our God-given freedoms, Liberty!
