As Bonhoeffer watched Germany crumble, we would do well to heed his warning to the results of our craven stupor. We cling, we crave, we claw in a blind belief that we are the civilization that can transcend the laws of human descent. As we demand to avail ourselves the opportunity to repeat the disastrous mistakes of past civilizations, we should ask ourselves: Is this not the very definition of insanity?
Through the shadowy folds of Egypt’s mystery to the rage and hate of Germany, the marble columns of the Roman Empire, it’s fall into decadence, to the crumbling of the last great civilization, the United States, the last beacon of freedom, the pattern of demise is the same. It’s almost as if each civilization were made up of the same thing, humans. Creatures of habit who, despite being endowed with a capacity for reason, prefer to instinctively follow the habitual patterns of human frailty without regard of consequence.
The threads of time weave for us a pattern of warning if we would only heed it. The loss of a family structure for the nurturing and culturing of life leads to angry youths rioting and murdering in the streets. The stain and scars are in every history of every culture in its rise and fall.
For us who live in this last civilization, once called the great shining city on a hill, we are without excuse. No other peoples have had at their fingertips access to so much information, so much warning, a fabric of prophecy of sorts before us laid out on the loom of the ancients, woven a stark revelation of doom. Yet we choose to ignore them, willfully ignorant of the evidence before us left for our benefit so that we may skirt the destruction that plagues civilization.
Without life there can be no living and without living there can be no life. That is to say that the way we view life directly correlates to our quality of living. The propagation and culturing of life is the systemic lifeline to society. If a society fails to protect its foundational system of life, it will fail every time.
You need life to build a society, but the society also needs to build life. The rise and fall of a civilization is directly related to the way in which the peoples of that civilization culture life. The Marriage Construct must be protected. It is the security of the Nation.
It is through this Construct that the tenets of morality, work ethic, perseverance, law, respect, love, compassion, and love of country are passed on. For those in our Nation who feel that the government is best suited to teach those things, look at the results in the streets of today. Angry youths rioting in our streets, all nurtured and pampered on the teat of the government.
It stands to reason, if we could reason, that the foundation on which a structure is built must remain strong in order for that structure to remain strong. We have pulled away from the very thing that has kept us strong for decades, our heterosexual marriage tradition. The marriage construct has built this Nation. We are now reaping the fruits of its abandonment.
As violence fills our streets, the shouts of angry decadents spewing the reasoning for their debased acts are simply the outer rotting layers to the cancer that lies beneath. Generations of youths without a family structure to instill a code of decency, law, and order. Angrily they are tearing down the structure they have been taught to hate, while no one is doing anything to protect the foundation that holds it up.
More quickly now, we are pulled towards the ghosts of civilizations past to either learn or join them.
