Ninety years ago or so in Germany, at the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research, learned minds struggled to answer a question: How can a country be destroyed and conquered without doing it militarily? How can a country be made corrupt, turned upside-down and inside-out to "make Western civilization stink," according to Willi Munzenberg, one of the Leninist, Marxist professors there. The psychiatrists, psychologists, philosophers and professors of the Frankfurt Institute formulated a plan to do that.
An article written by Timothy Matthews and published at the Catholic Insight website -- titled "The Frankfurt School: Conspiracy To Corrupt" -- chronicles this plan and, as the author sadly notes, it is succeeding.
The professors of the Frankfurt Institute fled Germany after Hitler came to power. They fled to the United States and into universities such as Columbia, Princeton, UC-Berkeley and Brandeis.
As you read that article, keep in mind the events and issues that we are grappling with in our current political climate -- the battle between left and right. Keeping the political, social and economic landscape just in view as you read the article, you will come to realize that this is the agenda that the progressive left is using, has been using and will continue to use to rot this country from the inside out, and destroy capitalism and, in turn, Western civilization. Then, as Mr. Munzenberg continued, "after they have corrupted all its values and made life impossible, can we impose the dictatorship of the proletariat."
If we are to reverse the suicidal effect that this plan is having on our nation, we have to understand what we are fighting. Make no mistake -- this is a war, a war between right and wrong.
God bless the United States of America -- because if we ever needed His blessings, it is now.
