Gazing At Western Societal Collapse
Stephen Newdell with Notes From MIA and Others
I shall skip a long winded history of the origins of Communism and its manifesto and bring us directly to the point of my dissertation.
If somehow the young generations of a nation could be convinced that old fashioned Judeo-Christian moral codes were out dates, even ridiculous, what do you suppose would come of those people?
Let us imagine a once conservative society. Everyone attends a synagogue or church of their choice on Saturday or Sunday. They are polite, generally do not commit crimes, are kindly to children and animals, watch the neighbor’s children to be sure their health, safety and welfare are well protected, and have a voice that is given heed in public schooling.
This society wisely teaches “Civics” classes about law and order and how we maintain this healthy society. It teaches “Home Economics” and nutrition to would-be mothers.
These people have roles they willingly play and recognize the wisdom in these roles. Women want to be mothers. They want to be at their HOUSE where they turn that building into a Home and maintain it every day. They want to care for their children.
They are happy to see their husbands when the man returns from the day’s labors and are attentive to his voice, his needs, and his concerns. After a long day, (sometimes 14-hours on his feet) he is thankful she is there to take his hat and coat, and set a decent dinner before him, and then gives him peace to rest and sleep.
He wishes nothing more than that his wife and children should be safe and he will leave in their final memories a legacy that he did rightly by his family. What a country it would be. ….. It had been. It was The United States of America.
The editor of The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor newsletter (www.MIAtoday.com) in June 2018 wrote something very much like this:
It is no secret that promiscuity is now running rampant in America, and this includes teenagers – many 13 years old (and some even younger). Over 97% of young Americans are sexually active in junior high school or high school, or at the latest in college. Many of these children are from Christian homes and are lost to their parents’ Christian/traditional values either in high school or college – in large part because of the sexual revolution. (Christian apologist James Dobson estimates that number to be close to 85%.)
These young people have been purposefully deceived and now are so confused! Treating them like they entered Marine Boot Camp won’t help them. They are emotionally fragile and socially incapable of even so much as a profound conversation because do get all the communication they want through social media. One fellow observed even a lover can be found on social media because it’s all intended to be temporary anyway!
The great majority of young millennials are no longer marrying, but just cohabiting with their girl or boyfriend or gay/lesbian/transgender partner. Most do not plan to ever be married.
Of course, a lot of the blame for this sexual revolution among American young people can be attributed to Hollywood and television promoting these promiscuous values; and a lot can be blamed on the incredible proliferation of pornography on the Internet (now 4 million porn sites) – which is now readily available on every teenager’s SMART phone.
Tens of millions of teenagers and young adults across America are addicted to this amoral filth, and recent studies have shown that 30% of those are girls. But the beginning of this moral/sexual cascade for millions of young Americans is in the public schools – where the government school system is promoting heterosexual, homosexual, and transgender values and practices as far down as kindergarten – all endorsed by local, state, and Federal governments, and protected by the courts. This is the same government school system that outlaws the mention of God, the Bible, or prayer in schools across America – unless you are a Muslim.
In American schools you can practice Islam, discuss the Koran, even hold prayers to Allah together. But dare you discuss The Holy Bible, even so much as open a copy and read it during free time, or lunch time, and you’ll be thrown out of school system.
The students are taught that Free Enterprise is evil. Therefore, it must be that the 2-man pizza shop and the 12-employee dry-cleaner are also evil. What has happened is that universities have purposefully called Fascism by the name Capitalism and Free Enterprise.
Fascism is the effort to buy political influence with the help of “lobbyists”. In extreme cases someone with a CIA identification in his pocket tells someone in politics to comply or expect the most extreme strong-arm tactics. In simplest terms, the U.S. Government is corrupted to its core. This has been ongoing for years, at least since the days before John F. Kennedy st in the Oval Office.
Students are convinced they have rights to free education, which education is often ignored, replaced by continual social media and trading germs with strangers between the sheets.
They are, through most of their lives, coddled and told they can do anything and can make a great impact upon the world. Then, they graduate with less than competence capabilities, and discover life is unfair and hard, the competition of far and away more competent, the “impact” they want to make may take years, they are not immediately coddled and appreciated, and the management is unhappy with their performance.
Management calls them “difficult to manage.” YEARS of productivity can be wasted hiring and losing good employees this way.
I ask you to think a moment: What would happen to a society taught from their youth all of what I’ve said, and that immorality of all kinds, starting with free sex play, followed by lying, cheating, stealing, even beating up teachers and throwing them down stairways, is all acceptable because now “there are absolutely no moral codes.” Humm? What would happen inside and outside of the school system?
What happens when the banking system is corrupted? What happens when any cute girl can claim some man she dislikes this week looked at her for more than 5-seconds and is sexually harassing her? Worse, what if that man was the only competent manager in the department and the upper management prefers to fire him rather than go to court over the issues?
What happens to that man, that business and that lying girl? What happens when the entire society apparently cannot bring themselves to be honest about ANYthing? (You might wonder why I got my first retirement cheque and flew to escape America. I just told you. American society is a mess and any fool could see it was bound to get much worse. I got out while I thought the opportunity was available because I did not want to be a victim of these crimes.)
2 Thessalonians 2:3 New International Version (NIV)
3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.
2 Timothy 3 New International Version (NIV)
3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
Hebrews 5 New International Version (NIV)
7 During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. 8 Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered 9 and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him 10 and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
Warning Against Falling Away
11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
HOSEA 4:6a, 14c: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…. A people without understanding will come to ruin (or will fall).”
Psalm 14:2: “The Lord looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.”
The reason America is in sharp decline is that, as a people, we do not understand the times.
Most do not understand that there is a conspiracy to advance communism and a one world government in America and around the world. We do not understand our own Constitution or the freedom and liberty principles that made
America the greatest nation in world history. Nor do we understand the Biblical principles that were the foundation for our great freedom – nor, for the great majority, the God who blessed us with that freedom.
The great majority do not understand what it takes to retain that freedom in a world where communism, globalism, Islam, Hinduism, and a host of evil (indeed, satanic) powers are trying to seize (destroy) that freedom and subject them to slavery.
Ignorance is not bliss – it is guaranteed to lead to destruction and death – and the loss of everything we hold dear. Americans in our day have become shallow, unthinking, and easily manipulated by the nonstop controlled media (including government) brainwashing and disinformation.
The vast majority of younger Americans, because of their public school brainwashing, non-stop entertainment on social media, addiction to smart phones, and consequent inability to think deeply on any subject, have no understanding of our heritage or the principles that once made America great. Nor do they have any understanding of the times in which we live. Indeed, the vast majority of young Americans no longer even read books – and would never read a conservative newsletter to compare viewpoints.
Does history repeat itself? It does! History shows that when great evil has arisen in history (such as the rise of Communism in Russia and China, Nazism in Germany, the political left’s drive to socialize America and Europe in our day, and the present globalist thrust for war and global domination) – the great majority have had or have little or no understanding of the times or where they were headed.
Throughout history, when a great empire was in the last stages of decline, the great majority were still in holiday party mode and knew nothing of the great disaster that was about to befall them. Their corrupt or tyrannical leaders often distracted them with entertainment (such as bread and circuses in the latter years of the Roman Empire, and, in our day, television, social media, the nonstop anti-Trump soap opera, and filth that passes for late night comedy.
The Bible has tells us how to see and understand these times. The prophecies warn of the dangers to a person or nation when they forget their past, ignore God’s teachings, and lose the discernment to see the dangers facing them. Indeed, it is helpful in understanding these times to study the Old Testament accounts of Israel, their wanderings from (and disobedience to) the principles the Lord had laid down for them, their forgetting of their own history, and how they collapsed, were conquered by Assyria and Babylon, and lost their freedom.
There were/are many parallels with our day.
In Isaiah 6:9, the Lord told Isaiah to tell the people that they were: “ever hearing, but never understanding … ever seeing but never perceiving.” And, in Isaiah 44:18, he writes: “They know nothing; they understand nothing; their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see, and their minds closed so they cannot understand.
No one stops to think, no one has the knowledge or understanding….”
Proverbs 18:2 says: “A fool finds no pleasure in understanding, but delights in airing his own opinions.”
I am reminded of the great majority in our day and the endless protests that make today look like the 1960’s protest years. Even many professing Christians in our day lack understanding and discernment of the times in which we live. They have become lazy and complacent in their thinking, and, like many Americans, are just going with the flow. One is left to wonder, “Do they attend church only for social contacts? Does the sermon mean anything to them?”
Many have warned through the centuries even up to this day about what will come to our society when we ignore the words of Our Heavenly Father.
It’s in your Bible. Do you read it and pass over Matthew 24 as if it were just another used car advertisement?
32 “Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door. 34 I tell you the truth, this generation[j] will not pass from the scene until all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.
36 “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself.[k] Only the Father knows.
37 “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. 38 In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. 39 People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes.
The best way to understand the times is to stay closely connected to the Bible and listen to the Holy Spirit who advises us about The Lord’s time table. Politics really means nothing. People chattering about politics through the day are like circus barkers, never touching on the real issues and the true background, because they indeed do not know the real background information.
It is The Lord, Our God who ultimately controls these times. He is the greatest source of wisdom, discernment, understanding, and guidance. Psalm 111:10 says: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding.” Psalm 119:130 says: “The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.”
Proverbs 2:1-6 says: “My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver, and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
Proverbs 4: 4,5,7 says: “Lay hold of all my words with all your heart; keep all my commands and you will live. Get wisdom, get understanding, do not forget my words or swerve from them…. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.”
Proverbs 18:15 says: “The heart of the discerning seeks knowledge, the ears of the wise seek it out.”
Who Is Listening?
2 Chronicles 7:14 New International Version (NIV)
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (Alas, 1% are listening and praying. The rest ignore the wisest of words and strongest of warnings.)
Sadly, we live in a day when the great majority of people do not understand the times in which we live and where we are headed. An in-depth understanding of the times, discernment of the truth amidst a sea of lies, and the will to fight back for what is good and righteous against the evils of our day probably describes only a small minority of Americans or even Christians in our day. Thankfully, there are still a number of very good alternate media sources (although they are under withering attack at this time) that are attempting to spread the truth and help people see where we are headed.
A Major Mistake made by many is to assume that everything they read about Israel is about the country in the Middle East. They do not yet understand that those people were dispersed and became much of England and The British Colonies which today are most notably South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and The United States of America.
If e’er there were a place that fits perfectly the descriptions of societal collapse, looming economic disaster, and fits over 100 prophecies that point precisely to that mysterious place called “Babylon” it is the country that looks to Capitol Hill for leadership, looks to Lost Angeles for Entertainment, looks even beyond the stratosphere for defense, and to New York City for finance and trade. Despising this messenger for saying so will change nothing. YOU live in mysterious Babylon and if you don’t see it yet, it is because you refuse to see.
Do you read and consider the writings of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Jesus the Christ, and His Apostle John?
The greatest source of understanding these times is the Bible. There are many Old Testament prophets whose words make uncanny parallels between a declining Israel and declining America today.
Ancient Israel ignored and finally forgot God and His ways. Prophets came to warn them they were about to plunge into destruction and slavery, but they did not believe it until the Babylonian Army conquered them, most particularly Jerusalem.
The Lord God wants us to understand the times and how to live in those times.
I know very devout Orthodox Jews who refuse prophecy. They say they are afraid to attempt to foretell the future because it is too much like the days when false prophets and “wise women” gave false prophecy to kings which led to their destruction.
If we continue in this vein, we will ignore at least a third of the entire Bible. Who among us is so wise that he can tear out of the holy writ 33% (or more) and claim to be right?
Jesus foretold our times and by now has given it to you in print and on computer monitors and in every way made available to the curious what He wanted you to hear. What more can we request? Yet, we ignore. We like foolish rushing men in there piece suits stumble and fall to their knees into the dust of reality. We stand, dust ourselves off, and hurry away to our dream land.
Jesus and many of the others I’ve mentioned told us these times would come. Told us how to live when the foundations were crumbling all around us. If we really want to understand the times, we need to be listening to Him with a discerning ear.
I should like to recommend at least these two videos for your further in-depth consideration. These are best seen first by adults before passing it to children.
