Some comments on totalitarianism (right and left) and Christianity (2 of 2)

The first blog from Dec. 9th included some general comments on totalitarianism, and began to consider what totalitarian tendencies were in evidence in America today. One of the chief manifestations of this is, I believe, the homosexual rights movement. The “gay” “rights” activists have a totalitarian ambition to impose their views on everyone, by force; to silence dissent; to compel agreement.
Deception is a common factor among various totalitarian movements, and it is evident among the homosexual totalitarians as well. In the Holocaust, the Nazis did not tell the Jews “We are going to put you on trains and send you to extermination camps where you will all be slaughtered.” They knew that this would make transportation vastly more difficult, if not impossible. Similarly, when the Jews arrived at the camps, the Germans did not tell them “We are going to send you to gas chambers” – they said, it was only going to be a shower, followed by a hot drink, a place to stay, work, and so on. Had they told their victims up front what was going to happen, there would have been complete chaos at the unloading ramps.
This deception was elaborately carried out, with fake shower heads, gardens, flowers, even a simulated train station – Satan himself is the father of lies, as Christ taught, and evil people with evil ends can be quite skillful in disguising themselves (even if it is only the simple case of a con man trying to swindle someone out of a small sum).
Lenin also deliberately and consistently practiced deception as a matter of policy. He offered the people “Land! Peace! Bread!” – of course the great numbers who were deceived by these attractive promises had no inkling of the horrors that were in store for them under atheistic socialism.
Similarly, the gays have been deliberately, consistently, and cunningly deceitful in disguising their aims. It has been said countless times that all they want is the right to be like anyone else – but now that they are becoming powerful enough to throw their weight around we find that that disarming claim is merely a disguise. What they really want – and this is the essence of the totalitarian impulse – is to silence everyone who disagrees with them. They want to impose their views on people by force, and to indoctrinate children in the schools to accept the new amorality (as the Nazis and the Communists also used the schools not for education but for propaganda).
Moreover, these deluded and unhappy people want to persecute and harass those who do not accept them – and now even mere acceptance is not good enough, mere toleration is not good enough. They must be affirmed and embraced, they must dominate, they must be in control, because they know the best way and the right way for everyone, and those who contradict them are evil people full of hate who should have no rights, and no respect or consideration.
Given their fascist tendencies, we can expect increasing hatred, violence, and persecution from the bitter, angry, intolerant gays. Driven by hatred, ignorance, and fear, as well as by the messianic conviction that they can bring us a better world of freedom and happiness, they are using various means to silence or marginalize those who disturb their guilty consciences with the moral and eternal truth that their sexual practices are a sin against God, morally wrong, and contrary to nature.
There are common themes of Nazi, Communist, and Gay fascisms: first, denial of God’s laws as we have received them through the Judaeo-Christian tradition founded on the Bible. Second, there is an attempt to create a new society, a new reality – the reality of Hitler’s Aryan paradise of domination and racial purity; the Soviet paradise of a classless society, freed from capitalistic exploitation and war; and the gay paradise of complete sexual freedom to practice anything and everything with no morality and no restraint, at any age, in any way, with no restraint.
Behind all of this is a great love of power, the desire to rearrange society the way they think it should be, and to persecute or even eliminate all who dissent (and don’t think the gays are incapable of fascist atrocities, including concentration camps and massacres – they only do not have enough power yet). Behind all of this is a dark falsehood, errors that are contrary to reality and to human nature, the implementation of which brings suffering, misery, and ruin to millions, and in the end the destruction of the nation that has been so unfortunate as to fall into the talons, the cruel and grasping claws of soulless and heartless people driven to impose their warped and sick vision on their helpless victims.
Totalitarian tendencies are also strongly manifest in the Feminist movement. Natural allies with the gays in their drive to overturn divinely created masculinity and femininity and to create a unisex society, and even a female dominated society, they too are using the government to stifle opposing views, and use dishonest mischaracterizations to distort and misrepresent the motives and characters of those who disagree with them. Like they gays, they too are unable to tolerate opposing points of view, because deep down they are not happy with themselves.
Totalitarian tendencies are also manifest in government bureaucrats who have acquired a taste for power and believe they can make a better society if everyone is required to do as they say. The democratic exchange of opposing views that helps to more equitable policies in the end is anathema to them, as their goal is power. They are natural allies of other opponents to true freedom, and will follow anyone who can bring them more power.
Socialism is also a powerful force for totalitarianism. By teaching that government is the solution to all problems; by robbing people of self reliance and initiative and teaching them to look to government; by penalizing those who show creativity, hard work, and discipline, confiscating their gains and all-too-often squandering them in the most useless fashion, they stifle many qualities necessary to a healthy society, and encourage the opposite qualities of timidity and passivity.
Another force for totalitarianism is the entertainment industry. By stuffing people’s minds with silly and stupid rubbish, and that from the earliest age, movies, TV shows, pop music render people increasingly incapable of the independent thought necessary to recognize and to withstand popular currents.
The powerful drift towards totalitarianism is aided by the passivity, timidity, and naivety of those who privately have more traditionally sensible and conservative ideas, but are too ignorant and shallow to really perceive the true nature of the threat we are up against. For too long they have imagined that freedom and prosperity are guaranteed us because we are Americans, and Americans are special. Now that the destructive influence of modern secular ideas is becoming evident, the conservatives are beginning to struggle feebly and ineffectually, without even understanding the profoundly spiritual nature of this conflict.
