A gullible generation can destroy a nation. The people follow a dubious Weltanschauung, losing the virtues of HONOR and COURAGE. Lofty aspirations are washed away in a flood of degeneracy.
A “new way” is promoted. Children are encouraged to usurp their parents. Men are encouraged to become women and women to become men. The hunchback is applauded, while the UberMan is ridiculed.
And when the nefarious change happens, it will take years to come to fruition. The tree will grew askew, but few will be concerned. They’ll comment on how a tree can grow lopsided at times…these things happen! Carry on as you were. The plebeians will remain focused on bread and circus.
But eventually, the rotten fruit will become known. And when it hits the ground, everybody will take notice. The destruction will be obvious…for bloodshed will reign supreme. The nation will lament the deforestation of their lands…the eradication of their soil. The destruction of a people.
Therefore, no idea can be given a free pass. Every philosophy must be held to the standards of a lofty empire – a home that loves God, promotes a happy marriage, and supports the concept of children with honor.
