Socialism is hitting America like a tidal wave striking at our values, our private property rights, at parental authority, at religious freedom and the very heart and soul of our U.S. Constitution. As we discussed on a recent program, this issue is really a revolution in the making to completely dismantle our constitutional republic and turn it over to socialism. It’s confronting us in numerous ways and what happens in this election will greatly determine the destiny of our nation.
Joining Jim for in-depth discussion on this issue was William Federer. William is a nationally known speaker, historian, author, and president of Amerisearch, Inc, a publishing company dedicated to researching America’s noble heritage. He’s the speaker on The American Minute daily broadcast. He has authored numerous books including, America’s God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations, The Original 13: History of Religion in America’s First Thirteen States, Who is the King in America? and the newly released Socialism: The Real History From Plato to the Present in which he analyzes how the deep state capitalizes on crises to consolidate control.
Jim quoted from William’s latest book where Plato said: ‘When the true philosopher-kings are born in state they will set in order their own city. They will take possession of the children who will be unaffected by the habits of their parents. These they will train in their own habits and laws.’
According to William, the children are the prize. He used the analogy of computers. In that realm you have software and hardware. The question then remains as to who gets to load the software. God has given children the hardware which is their bodies and brains. They also have their ‘software’ which is the ideology they’re taught that gives them their identity and purpose. In God’s plan that includes family and loving each other but those opposed to God want to load viruses and malware. It’s all about who gets to program the next generation. Take the children away from the family before they’ve been affected by the habits of their parents and indoctrinate them with what Plato described as ‘noble lies.’
This is all about giving up your values and embracing the state’s values. An example from the Bible includes King Saul telling his soldiers to kill priests. They wouldn’t because they knew individually they are accountable to God. Doeg the Edomite took out a sword and killed them all. In essence, Doeg had surrendered his conscience to Saul, being willing to do whatever Saul ordered. This is what dictators want, a population that will simply obey them.
William went on to explain that the nation is controlled by laws. Laws are controlled by politicians. Politicians are controlled by voters. Voters are controlled by public opinion. Public opinion is controlled by education, the media and the Internet. So whoever controls education, the media and the Internet controls the nation.
Since the forces behind socialism control these variables, it’s easy to see who gets to ‘load the software’ onto the next generation.
