The predictions of the past are coming true before our eyes | Columns
In 1965, Paul Harvey delivered a commentary titled “If I Were the Devil” that predicted the future spiritual condition of the United States. In 2020, The Washington Examiner published a commentary by Gary Bauer titled “How to Destroy America from Within” which also predicted the country’s future.
Both aptly described the current mess in the United States and its continued movement in that direction.
A recent TikTok video is going viral. In it, an unidentified woman expresses her concerns about what is wrong with our country and how it has changed since she was younger.
Many may disagree with certain things she says, or nothing else. And he is certain to have been banned or given a warning label on Twitter or Facebook for his “inappropriate” opinions.
But the concept of free speech makes things like this important for distribution on social media platforms, despite its unpopularity with social media oligarchs. Having a wide range of ideas to consider is essential for our future.
“I never imagined that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America,” she began. “At least not the one I’ve known all my life. I never wanted to live anywhere else. This is my home, and I had the privilege of being born here.
“But today I woke up and when I had my morning coffee I realized everything was about to change. It doesn’t matter how I vote, no matter what. Something’s wrong invaded our nation. Our lives will never be the same again.”
She then began to list the things that trouble her. The hostility of people, including family and friends, who now agree with opinions they never would have voiced as their own before.
The “madness” of men pretending to be women and women pretending to be men, and the demand that everyone accept it.
Be 18 the legal age to vote, but be 21 to buy alcohol. The idea that people who never went to college, or managed to pay off their earned college loan debt, are now having their taxes pay the huge debts of some college graduates who can’t or won’t do it.
The crazy situation where people like doctors and engineers from other countries have to endure a long and arduous process to immigrate here. But literally anyone can walk or sneak across the southern border and be welcomed with open arms, whether they’re gang members, drug dealers, or infected with COVID or other horrible diseases. .
And yet, spending $5 billion on border security is too expensive, but spending $1.5 trillion on free health care is fine. And, as a few people have recently discovered, if you cheat to get your child into college, you go to jail, but if you cheat to get into the country, you can go to college for free.
As a result, the rights of criminals are more important than those of law-abiding citizens. After being arrested for a crime, they must be released to commit other crimes. And if you complain about it, you’re called a racist.
“People who say gender doesn’t exist demand a female president,” she said. “We see other countries becoming socialist and collapsing, but this seems like a great plan to us. Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and others are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.
” Nothing make sense anymore. No values, no morals and no civility,” she said as she began her conclusion. “We clearly live in a topsy-turvy world where good is bad and bad is good. Where the moral is immoral, and the immoral is moral. Where good is bad and bad is good. Where killing murderers is wrong, but killing unborn babies is A-OK.
“Wake up, America. The large unsinkable ship, Titanic America, hit an iceberg, takes on water and sinks rapidly. Speak.
Much of what our founders created and enabled America to do so well for so long is crumbling beneath our feet. Those who don’t know this, don’t understand how much they have it, or just don’t like what America is, are working so hard to turn the country into just one more failed socialist state.
Harvey said the devil’s plan was to attack and destroy religion in the country as the first step to bring the nation down. Although we still have several religions, the results of the anti-religious movement can be seen in the moral decay of our culture.
Weakening the education system, changing how and what children are taught, this is how Bauer’s chronicle begins. And today, many teachers, schools and school systems have been caught in the act of doing so.
Funding the police and military was mentioned, as well as news media largely driven by ideology, rather than honorably doing their vital job of presenting all news without political or ideological bias.
The younger generations haven’t learned why keeping the “old ways” is important, and now the great country we grew up in is in jeopardy.
