Abraham Lincoln was 28 years old when he gave the speech this passage is taken from, which is quite mortifying, when we consider that 99% of 28 year old college graduates today could not utter a comparable speech, and Lincoln had only 1 year of second grade formal education. But, that’s what the American pastimes of hellivision, drug use, and promiscuous s-x and p-rnography will do to the men of the nation. It dumbs them down tremendously.
‘How then shall we perform it?–At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?–Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!–All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.’
He said that our nation would be destroyed by ourselves, or not at all. He was right. It started with Communism. One of the goals of Communism was to normalize and legalize pornography.
These were goals 24, 25, and 26.
24: Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25: Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV. [Note: This is the Gramscian agenda of the “long march through the institutions” spelled out explicitly: gradual takeover of the “means of communication” and then using those vehicles to debauch the culture and weaken the will of the individual toresist.]
26: Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy.” [Note: Today those few who still have the courage to advocate public morality are denounced and viciously attacked. Most Americans are entirely unwitting regarding themotives behind this agenda.]
This has led to our fatherless rate going from 3% being born out of wedlock in 1947, to 40% nearly every year today. Children raised with weak fathers, or no fathers, are much more likely to be subverted by the Marxist media and schools, which is massively occurring today.
The horrific effects of pornography on the brain, men, women, families, children, and society are included here and here.
The Supreme Court had no right to legalize porn in 1969, with the ludicrous ‘Stanley Vs. Georgia’ case.
Of course, we will get libertarians and libertines, and often they are one and the same, who say that the government shouldn’t ban things. Well, virtue is necessary for liberty in a society, and the absence of virtue leads to corruption and slavery.
So, do we wish to have our liberty and to ban pornography, or do we wish to continue to keep it legal and to become slaves?
‘Give me liberty or give me death’
If anyone favors legalizing pornography, you favor individual and societal death.
