In yesterday’s post I refreshed my viewpoint that the myth of America is quickly dying. I also referred to how there had been a very limited window of opportunity to save America and how it would have required drastic measures of killing a herd of globalists.
I’ve long made the point that globalism is not simply leftist in the sense of socialist and communist, but that Zionism is also globalist, a slightly different flavor of socialism. In other posts here I’ve connected globalist Zionism with globalist capitalism, just another manifestation of the Tower of Babel. I’ve warned that capitalism, as currently conceived here in the USA, is globalist in the sense of putting the market above all other considerations, which is inherently globalist. Those who control the capital demand the freedom to ignore all boundaries, which is a major element in the definition of globalism. Capitalists are loyal only to capital.
So, I suggested that the solution to saving America would be to invoke genuine nationalism, the devotion to the primacy of the people in the sense of a tribal identity labeled “America.” Not fascism, which subjects all things to the State, but nationalism, which by definition puts the interests of the nation — and national identity — above all things. This assumes you understand that “America” is a certain odd kind of nation, with the idea that there can be more cultural variation internally than is actually possible, as long as everyone clings to the broader identity. This is why it has always been a myth, but it does have some limited capability of serving as a national identity.
More to the point: It’s going to die sooner or later. You can prolong its life, but only at the cost of a something that looks almost like fascism. It does not require a new round of conquests, but it does require a fresh round of national urgency in rebuilding what the capitalists have taken from us. It would mean rejecting capitalism and the attendant libertarianism that worships material property. It would require an urgent drive to restore industry and infrastructure, which in turn would have required a very strong religious revival of a sense of national identity to carry through the kind of organization and sacrifice to rebuild the economy. It would demand the people sacrifice for their own common welfare. Once you do all of that, you could usher in a fresh golden age, but one that is not sustainable without some very radical silencing of globalist (left and right) voices.
In theory, it could be done. It would require a strong charismatic leader who could sell the idea, and one with the balls to order the kind of mass killing required to turn things around. The mere presence of globalists would prevent such a national revival. On the one hand, the left/right globalist cabal is truly evil, deserving of slaughter. But it would require what the Bible calls “clean hands” to do so with a clear conscience.
So, on the other hand, slaughtering them would deeply afflict the national conscience. Clean hands are not possible with the American identity. It is not that there’s anything actually wrong with such a slaughter in biblical terms, but the American myth excludes biblical thinking. Such a slaughter would drag down the national conscience because that national conscience sprouts from anti-Christian roots (the Enlightenment). It’s more complicated than suggesting it would be a false guilt; it would have the effect of being a very real guilt, but guilt for a very confused conscience. The whole thing would take place under Satan’s hand, along with all his tricks of manipulation. Without those clean hands, humans serve Satan by default.
So, such a national revival would not last long, since it would stand on Satan’s lies. A primary mission of Satan as God’s Left Hand is to tie the human awareness in knots, to confuse people about genuine moral truth, to tempt people to operate from any and all wrong motives. The doing is seldom the issue; it’s the motivations that damn you. It’s the false motivations that damn nations. No matter what desperate tactics America might choose, the American identity is still a damned lie.
Thus, any such national revival would probably die again in a couple of generations, if it lasted even that long. It’s not worth it. Having a clear spiritual view of the matter includes both, knowing what works, and why it won’t work for very long. Everything about the world and worldly ways is ephemeral; it’s all doomed to the fires of Hell sooner or later. In the long run, the American flag is a fallen symbol, and draping it over the Cross is foul blasphemy.
There’s nothing wrong with giving provisional loyalty to any flag or other symbol of human aspiration. It’s how we get ourselves into the position to present our testimony of eternal things. But when that salute becomes a religious ritual, then it becomes the worship of demons. Keep in mind that the New Testament says in no uncertain terms: Idolatry is the worship of demons. There is only one God of all Creation, and all the competition together is nothing but demonic deception.
The whole issue with Mordecai in the Book of Esther refusing to bow before the Persian imperial officers was that they required he bow as if praying to a deity. The rulers of this world lack the authority to determine what is due loyalty coming from those who serve the Creator. This conflict is inevitable, and how we handle it is our testimony. Just because we know something will work within the fallen system doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. Knowing and saying that a nationalist revival would fix our economic problems, and that a slaughter of globalists would reduce social and political conflict, doesn’t mean I promote the idea.
If you are going to claim Christ, you need to discard everything that hinders following Him.
