The Women’s March, NYC – January 21, 2017
Feminists took to the streets to make their feelings for President Trump known, and to assert various ‘rights’ they feel are endangered by a Trump administration.
American style feminism, with its material power orientation, is a movement of destruction (abortion) and domination (“A Woman’s Place Is In Your Face!”) — that fails to understand/embrace the true nature of women’s power — and is ultimately nihilistic and self-defeating for persons and society.
Really the way to find one’s self is in the free gift of self, not the assertion of self.

Americans are encouraged to find their identity in rebellion against the status quo — even against truth itself. This can mean the triumph of infantilism in the name of progress.
November 12, 2016 – Fifth Avenue, NYC
Leaning heavily on Marxist disruption, America’s preferential treatment of women, minorities, and the LGBT community, has in recent years led to a divided nation — and a vicious cycle of underdeveloped persons — frothing in a sea of disorder and hatred, and leading to nothingness rather than a flourishing society.

Especially notable in this election was the extent to which personal identity played a role in how people voted — overwhelming every other issue, program, or policy consideration. That said, if Hillary Clinton had been a better (healthier) woman many who voted for Trump would have voted for her. Unfortunately, her view of reality and actions therewith have been unhealthful for women and the country.

Addressing the UN this week, President Obama said “I draw strength from young Americans…who are remaking our nation once again, who are unconstrained by old habits and old conventions and unencumbered by what is, but are instead ready to seize what ought to be.”
One probably wouldn’t want to fly in an airplane with a pilot who had such a view of reality. And yet the man who sees himself as the most important person in the world, and is acting on it, has such a view — while the wreckage piles up, from the burning of Charlotte to the burning of Syria.
President Obama’s legacy will be a nation and world more divided and self-destructing than when he came into office, with his untruthfulness a key factor.
Aren’t we all slaves, the question is are we submitting to Love or to sin?
Love begins at home.
When advancement is unearned the community is diminished. To be healthy in a community people need to be of one mind and one heart, on the way to God. They need to leave behind all self-seeking in order to find happiness in love for the other.

The same diabolical energy that is behind the destruction of Libya, Syria, and Ukraine is now driving the Black Domination Movement in America — which will likely end the same way, with the U.S. Justice Department on the side of disorder.
The best hope for overcoming the new tyranny of selfishness and hatred, brought on by Marx-inspired activists corrupting the African-American community, is for good black men to step-up and confront the lies and distortions. Sadly, many black women have been seduced by the propaganda and miseducation, of said activists, and are channeling hatred (“Get’em”) rather than wisdom in these days.
America’s aversion to truth (including humility and purity), especially among political leaders, has paved the way for evil and madness to fill the void, as the presidential campaign aptly demonstrates.
It’s worth noting, at the birth of the nation,”most people in the early 1790’s did not want (political) parties. Not only the exalted George Washington, who was trying to be president of all the people, but Jefferson, Hamilton, and Madison railed against the spirit of party. ‘If I could not go to heaven but with a party,’ Jefferson explained, ‘I would not go there at all.'” The Deadlock of Democracy, (Prentice, 1967)
