Language advisory for the video.  Orwell saw this coming long ago:

At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed that all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to say this, that or the other, but it is ‘not done’ to say it, just as in mid-Victorian times it was ‘not done’ to mention trousers in the presence of a lady. Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing, either in the popular press or in the highbrow periodicals.

Scratch a Social Justice Warrior, and a Grand Inquisitor will emerge.

  1. Thanks for mentioning Orwell. Double Think and 2+2=5 has been very much on my mind of late.

  2. Troubling times.
    I work with many millennials, mostly females that are nursing students, and the concept of God is nothing more than a hindrance to their fast track to happiness. I’m dismayed.
    Parents are not guiding their children. “My parents didn’t want to influence my decision in religious matters,” was a reply from one. “They wanted me to choose to believe or not.”

    So. As an old saying goes; “When you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.”
    Enter 1984.

    I slowly plant the seeds with these soon to be LPN’s and RN’s. They witness the bedside manner of a practicing Catholic who consoles and prays for the exhausted elder who is near death. They see for themselves the gratitude that these tired souls try to express. They hear prayers they have never heard before, these young women, and they consider God.
    This is not for ego boost, but it is a reality.

    The temperature of the Bernie Sanders Water is perfect for these young minds that have limited thirst for history or religion.

    Our challenge is to love.
    When they see Christian love in action they might just search further this ideal, this God, this suffering servant we know as Christ.

  3. I no longer use my real name when posting publicly because of this. I was once employed by a large internatiional corporation that did work in nuclear, aircraft, locomotive, fossil energy, and healthcare. I publicly criticized embryonic stem cell research as a matter of Catholic principle. That company’s heathcare division did a great deal of business in such research and donated money to Planned Parenthood. I was told that my political beliefs did not reflect company values. So now I use a pseudonym to give my present company plausible deniability that what I write reflects on it.

  4. “My parents didn’t want to influence my decision in religious matters,” was a reply from one. “They wanted me to choose to believe or not.”

    Translation:

    1. Mom and Dad were atheists.

    2. Mod and Dad really liked to sleep in Sunday mornings.

    3. Mom and Dad were liberals and they made sure to force feed that to me as my religion.

    4. Mom hooked up with my bio Dad once and since then I have had many Dads who drift in and out of Mom’s life.
    5. I can barely read a comic book let alone the Bible!
    6. Commitment to anything is not big on my agenda, at least until my biological clock begins ticking a lot louder than currently.
    7. I really like sleeping in on Sunday mornings.
    8. Christians are devils, at least that is what my professors have told me.
    9. If I became a Christian I have to stop sleeping around?
    10. Selfishness is not a virtue?

  5. Don.

    It’s pathetic.
    It’s what we have to work with.
    It’s our mission field and it’s next door, the café, the gym, the library.

    This however is our crown of glory.
    If we choose to engage and through our lives help just one or two to come to the Truth, then we have accomplished much.

    It’s good to know who has them, for now, but he is weak and he can not win. He is afraid of us. He hates us. We have power and authority over him, and we will take back what belongs to God.
