There is one issue that explains the decline of the United States, and everybody in this room knows it. This issue can be defined and measured as the starting point, the energy behind, and the inevitable endpoint of a collapsed empire.
This issue is the disintegration of natural sexuality, marriage, and family in America. The exploitation and collapse of the family, traditional life-long marriage between men and woman, and the spiritual mystery of sexuality, has led to a continuous downward spiral of collapse in other areas of life in America by creating an inverse rise in human dysfunction.
A Profound Principle
Let us always remember this simple yet profound principle: law creates culture, and culture creates life. How? Because culture is the manifestation of the human imagination; the substance of ideas, the material of expression. And expression is controlled by law, because either law permits and allows it, or forbids and stops it.
An example of this can be seen in the very simple lesson of the recent young 20 something kids who took photographs of themselves in semi-nude, sexually immoral acts in front of Russia’s religious shrines. These photos were published on social media, resulting in the immediate arrest, prosecution, and imprisonment of these young people for 10 months in prison—sometimes longer.
Hence, law has effectively forbid and extinguished this from ever happening again, due to the severe consequences, which normal people will avoid experiencing. This also occurred in the recent deportation of a group of Ukrainian women who participated in a naked photoshoot on a hotel the in Dubai.
Upon discovery, the Dubai authorities arrested these women and the photographer, defined this action as ‘Unacceptable behavior’, and deported them. So this “cultural expression of photography” was also extinguished from society by law, and no doubt will not be repeated anytime soon.
So it is important to understand the nature of a nation’s laws in relation to a nation’s culture, for both law and the culture it creates or allows to take root and expand will determine the nature of the people in a nation, the society they construct, and the national destiny that results from the people’s collective and individual actions.
The collapse of the American empire can be measured both in the short and long timetable. From a long term point of view, it might be said, that America has been in a form of slow collapse since the end of the American Civil War in 1865, when authoritarianism first took root under Lincoln, and America transitioned from an anti-federalist nation of individual states with sovereignty, to a federally controlled government bureaucracy with impulses toward a top-down, professional class of administrators tinkering and advancing “manifest destiny” at any cost.
This can be seen in the rise of the military industrial complex and war as well, as we see in America’s participation in the wars and conflicts of WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, Somalia, and the War on Terror triggered on the self-inflicted World Trade Center attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
From a short term lens, we can see that over the past 50 years, America’s most significant metric of social collapse, has been caused by the collapse of “social bonds”, often caused by government policy or law that encourage vice, immorality, and dysfunction by not discouraging or punishing it out of some false notion of “human rights” or freedom.
The irony is, the result has been the destruction of human rights and freedoms by increasing the tyranny and authority and power of government and dissipating the individual and family.
So in America, we have seen over the past 50 years the steady allowance of the government and law to permit the weakening, the exploitation, the perversion, the corruption, and the annihilation of sexuality, marriage, and the family.
Since 1950, we can see the rise in things like contraception, pornography, co-habitation between unmarried couples, homosexuality, abortion, divorce, sexually transmitted diseases, and the most recent form of sexual schizophrenia known as “transgenderism”.
It can also be seen in the social sciences that the rise of criminality, violence, murder, suicide, drugs, is directly tied to the rise of single-parent homes, out-of-wedlock births, fatherless homes, and government welfare that has increased due to the steady decline of religious involvement in the formation of people’s lives and identities.
In America, the church has forgotten its most important role, being the conscience of society, and instead degenerated into a social club or weekly meeting of psychobabble of self-help delusions.
With the disintegration of strong marriages and families for children to grow into healthy adults, we have also seen the rise in corrosive and toxic ideas such as “political-correctness” and “safe-spaces” or other delusional beliefs and dogmas about vague notions of being entitled to not being offended, having a divine right to happiness, health, or safety by outlawing any reference to Divinity or God or morality in education and politics.
A great example of this evil corruption of America—and the West for that matter–being exposed for the destructive effects it has on the family, can be seen by President Vladimir Putin and his most recent speech in Russia to the Valdai Conference.
Putin stated that the West’s sexual immorality of “wokeness” and “political-correctness” has caused severe sexual confusion about gender and exploitation of children, and went so far to say it “verges on a crime against humanity.” Regarding America’s collapse, Russian President Putin said the following:
“We look in amazement at the processes underway in the countries which have traditionally looked at as the standard bearers of progress. Of course, the social and cultural shocks that are taking place in the United States and Western Europe are none of our business; we are keeping out of this.
Some people in the West believe that an aggressive elimination of entire pages from their own history, “reverse discrimination” against the majority in the interests of the minority and the demand to give up traditional notions of mother, father, family and even gender, they believe that all of these are the mileposts on the path towards social renewal.
The advocates of so-called ‘social progress’ believe they are introducing humanity to some kind of a new and better consciousness. Godspeed, hoist the flags as we say, go right ahead. The only thing that I want to say now is that their prescriptions are not new at all.
It may come as a surprise to some people but Russia has been there already. After the 1917 revolution, the Bolsheviks, relying on the dogmas of Marx and Engels, also said that they would change existing ways and customs, and not just political and economic ones, but the very notion of human morality and the foundations of a healthy society.
The destruction of age-old values, religion and relations between people, up to and including the total rejection of family (we had that, too), encouragement to inform on loved ones—all this was proclaimed progress and, by the way, was widely supported around the world back then and was quite fashionable, same as today.
The fight for equality and against discrimination has turned into aggressive dogmatism bordering on absurdity, when the works of the great authors of the past—such as Shakespeare—are no longer taught at schools or universities, because their ideas are believed to be backward.
The classics are declared backward and ignorant of the importance of gender or race. In Hollywood, memos are distributed about proper storytelling and how many characters of what color or gender should be in a movie. This is even worse than the agitprop department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
Countering acts of racism is a necessary and noble cause, but the new ‘cancel culture’ has turned it into ‘reverse discrimination’ that is, reverse racism. The obsessive emphasis on race is further dividing people, when the real fighters for civil rights dreamed precisely about erasing differences and refusing to divide people by skin color.
I specifically asked my colleagues to find the following quote from Martin Luther King: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by their character.” This is the true value. However, things are turning our differently there.
By the way, the absolute majority of Russian people do not think that their color of a person’s skin or their gender is an important matter. Each of us is a human being. This is what matters. In a number of Western countries, the debate over men’s and women’s rights has turned into a perfect phantasmagoria.
Zealots of these new approaches even go so far as to want to abolish these concepts altogether. Anyone who dares mention that men and women actually exist, which is a biological fact risk being ostracized. “parent number one” and “parent number two”, “birthing parent” instead of “mother,” and “human milk” replacing “breastmilk” because it might upset the people who are unsure about their own gender.
I repeat, this is nothing new; in the 1920’s, the so-called Soviet Kulturtraegers also invented some newspeak believing they were creating a new consciousness and changing values that way. Not to mention some truly monstrous things when children are taught from an early age that a boy can easily become a girl and vice versa.
That is, the teachers actually impose on them a choice we all supposedly have. They do so while shutting the parents out of the process and forcing the child to make decisions that can upend their entire life. They do not even bother to consult with child psychologists—is a child at this age even capable of making a decision of this kind? Calling a spade a spade, this verges on a crime against humanity, and it is being done in well, if someone likes this, let them do it.
I have already mentioned that, in shaping our approaches, we will be guided by a healthy conservatism. That was a few years ago, when passions on the international arena were not yet running as high as they are now, although, of course, we can say that clouds were gathering even then.
Now, when the world is going through a structural disruption, the importance of reasonable conservatism as the foundation for a political course, has skyrocketed—precisely because of the multiplying risks and dangers, and the fragility of the reality around us.”
Here President Putin says it all, and a more profound and truthful analysis of the origin and energy behind the collapse of the American Empire, cannot be found.
Statement from Ukraine
Another reason this is an important speech is because the Ukrainian President Yanukovych was overthrown by a CIA coup d’état in 2014 by US President Barak Obama because he would not adopt this homosexual transgender sexual schizophrenia agenda—masquerading as human rights and progressive agenda by America and the West.
Yanukovych said, “We will not allow that in Ukraine, it is against our culture and heritage as Christians.” Shortly after, he was overthrown from office, and later Vice President Joe Biden went to the new President and demanded the firing of a prosecutor investigating the Biden-Burisma-Hunter Biden crimes.
This collapse can also be seen by the rise of a government authoritarian state, and also in the peculiar self-lobotomizing companies and cultures of social media, like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and others.
It would be indeed comical if it were not so disgusting and infuriating to see social media channels eliminating people from existence because they speak an opinion about facts relating to certain subjects and ideas. Most recent example is the hysteria over the criticism toward the Covid-19 vaccines, and social-political lockdowns and involuntary imprisonment of people in their homes over claims of some sickness which statistically has been proven to have a 97.99% full recovery rate.
Upon review, I would have said President Putin should have mentioned that the effect of this is creating a deep hostility and dysfunction in American women, and that the American government has through quotas and misguided policy created so much competition between men and women, that there is now friction and contempt and resentment instead of attraction, playfulness, and deep love, and this is what has destroyed the attraction and desire for physical and spiritual unity between men and women in the lifelong bond of marriage. This is why American men are also falling victims to Chinese female spies, but that’s another discussion.
Putin should have also referenced the classic religious teaching of being “In the hands of angry God”, and repeated Thomas Jefferson’s quote, “I tremble for my nation when I consider God is righteous”, the warning God gives in the words “He who harms one of these little ones, it is better for a millstone to be tied around his neck”, and in this case a nation’s neck.
Indeed it seems God has “given them over to strong delusion to believe the lie”: allowing the American people to create a culture of dysfunctionality by outlawing truth and legalizing insanity in the form of toxic political-correctness–which inevitably leads not only to war and conflict internationally, but the surrendering of liberty, which in turn leads to the collapse of a nation.
The Western nations are dividing and buckling between the spiritually ecumenical and harmonious and the spiritually dead and mentally deranged. The disintegration of the nation state and the rise of the independent republics: what happened to the Soviet Union is now happening to the United States—the individual parts are separating from the larger nation and asserting their moral, economic, cultural, and legal independence.
The disintegration of the United States started in 2001 with the 911 attacks that were self-inflicted and carried America into a police state. This has been coming for a long time, like a stone wall holding back a flood of water, a damn that begins to leak a little by little, trickling out at parts. This is rapidly accelerating with the Afghanistan retreat, and the increasing civil war in America.
The Zionist-CIA-Saudi intelligence officials orchestrated one of the greatest false flag events in the history of humanity: the pre-medicated, decades planned attack on the World Trad Center tower, using thermite, nuclear, holograms, and financial theft mechanisms, to launch a “new Pearl Harbor”, a Jewish Zionist Neocon organization in the 90’s that crafted a paper on how the US must transform itself and the world. Dov Zakheim, my boss, was instrumental.
They launched the attacks, and 20 years later, its not plainly visible and clear that the world trade center tower was imploded, was scientifically provable, did not collapse because of airplanes, and we see other items like the building 7.
No plane was found at the Pentagon, but most likely an Israeli missile fired from a submarine. So these fingerprints in blood shows a plan to launch US military interventionism around the world and demolish the middle east regimes and make them puppet regimes of the US.
We are witnessing the climactic failure and crash of this ill-conceived plan with the US rejection and fall from Middle East. The ostracization of the US from these countries.
This has led to the disintegration of the United States in its own country. The awakening and awareness of this within the US. It has arisen in the culture and laws of the US like the Patriot Act and other actions that have shut down the American liberty, and it is now quickening under the weight of the Covid 19 vaccine and forcibly inject a MRNA altering substance into the bodies of people claiming it is a vaccine.
They are trying to reprogram the DNA of people, and it is proving very deadly, and it will be the last straw that breaks America into a more fragmented society that we already see brewing in Australia.
Although it started in 2001 and came to its end in November 2020 election fraud, after the US lost its authority, and failure to conquer the world, the military turned against its own people.
Let the history show that men of truth and freedom won out over the maniacs and police state, and returned America to its state of non-interventionism and liberty.
George Washington said do not get entangled in foreign wars and conflicts and disagreements with other nations in Europe, and GW Washington’s lesson was lost since 2001. So we must listen once again to GW words so the future may be hopeful.
