Why is the West in constant cultural chaos and upheaval?
by Don Hank
All of the cultural chaos we see around us, notably since Obama was first elected, is the expression of an irrational desire to destroy all traditions, particularly Christianity (though not religion per se) that started with the Enlightenment about 300 yr ago. The west has lost almost all consciousness of the historic and philosophical origins of this but the visible madness started with the French Revolution, a product of the philosophical movement the antedated it. This revolution literally saw blood running down the streets all over France, as anyone even suspected of disagreeing with the Revolution and its concepts of – ironically, brotherhood, equality and freedom, was seized and beheaded. The methods have changed in the 21st century, but the idea of introducing chaos and irrational ideas (“gay” marriage, recruitment of women in battles, “gay” adoption of children, etc.) is very much alive. In fact, the killing has not abated n the least, except that it has been shifted to the Middle East — and Kosovo — where Christians and all non-Muslims must fear for their lives in a world dominated by Sunni Wahhabi violence fanned by a US-Saudi coalition, as explained here, here, here, here, and here).
There was a moderate Enlightenment, typified by Kant, and a radical Enlightenment, typified by Voltaire et al., and this more radical form has survived until the present day, holding the West in its thrall. The reason some blame the perpetual revolution on the so-called Illuminati is due to a linguistic phenomenon that most of the anti-revolutionaries of today know nothing about, and it is attributable to the word for “Enlightenment” in a European language.
Indeed, the word for enlightenment differs greatly among European languages. In French: les Lumières, in German, die Aufklärung, in Spanish la Ilustración and In Italian, l’Illuminismo. In Italy, its followers were therefore called illuminati, which merely meant “enlightened ones.” The people who fought in or sympathized the Risorgimento (the war to unite Italy) were called illuminati NOT because they belonged to a secretive cult (although many did, namely, the Carbonari, who can be compared to the Freemasons, whom they may have imitated), but because they acted out the ideas of the Enlightenment (Illuminismo). Garibaldi’s soldiers were generally referred to as the illuminati. In that original sense most Western “leaders” are illuminati and the vast majority of them, like the vast majority of those who oppose them, haven’t the slightest inkling of this and probably don’t care.
Coincidentally, or perhaps by divine intervention, at the time I was writing this commentary, I was invited to participate in a pro-family conference in Kyrgyzstan. Why not a Western country? I am glad you asked.
There is no longer any Western country where traditional family values can be discussed openly and freely in public. A while back, 2 bakers in Oregon were asked by a gay couple to bake a cake bearing an inscription that ran counter to their faith and their belief in traditional marriage (perhaps you recall back when marriage was an institution between a man and a woman. GONE). When these bakers, a man and wife, refused on the grounds that the inscription was offensive to their beliefs, they were fined $130,000. That’s the price of a home in many places. The intent was to destroy them financially, a “soft” kind of death sentence. People of faith may no longer live their faith. A preacher in Scotland (part of the “free” world) was arrested, cuffed and taken away last week for preaching from a forbidden portion of the scriptures regarding homosexuality, video here.
So yes, the conference is in Kyrgyzstan where open discussions of family are not forbidden. We welcome you to send them a brief video of you or anyone speaking in favor of a healthy family.
