greater the congestion, pollution, compacted living and resultant aberrant
If you walk on the sidewalks in mega-cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston and Miami—you notice that everyone averts their eyes rather than greet you or acknowledge your presence. Everyone suffers from being a stranger to everyone else. New York City represents a city of strangers unable to relate to one another. Same with Chicago, LA and San Francisco!
And, today in our country, with our burgeoning multiculturalism, hyphenated-Americans, fracturing culture and linguistic chaos—people don’t relate to one another much less understand each other. Most Americans fear walking down the streets in LA, Chicago and Detroit. Fact: you could get killed at any moment by some madman with a bomb, machine gun or car.
Recently, two Muslim kids blew up the Boston Marathon, which killed and dismembered innocent American citizens. A disgruntled African-American killed a dozen people at the Navy Shipyard. Two white kids shot up Columbine. We witnessed Chicago’s basketball court shoot-out recently. You may remember the Aurora movie theater shootings by Holmes. The list grows with the Korean immigrant shooting up Virginia Tech, lonely kid shot up Newtown, angry Muslim shot up Fort Hood and crazy white kid shot a congresswoman in Tucson. Black Flash Mobs in Philadelphia, Chicago and St Louis attack and kill white Americans because they represent the enemy. Two kids in Oklahoma killed a white Australian baseball player running by their house. Reason? They replied, “For the fun of it.”
Most folks watch in horror at the atrocities on television told by the anchors with emotionless indifference.
The larger the city, the lesser the human community. The more cultures injected into America, the less our culture prevails. With loss of culture comes loss of community and commonality. When we shove all these incompatible cultures into close proximity, we discover that human beings lose their identity. They lose their self-meaning. They become estranged. They become lost and angry.
The naturalist John Muir said it succinctly, “Tell me what you will of the benefactions of city civilization, of the sweet security of streets—all as part of the natural up-growth of man towards the high destiny we hear so much of. I know that our bodies were made to thrive only in pure air, and the scenes in which pure air is found. If the death exhalations that brood the broad towns in which we so fondly compact ourselves were made visible, we should flee as from a plague. All are more or less sick; there is not a perfectly sane man in all of San Francisco.”
Millions of jobless, poverty-stricken Americans and immigrants wake up daily without purpose, meaning or connection to community. With millions of minority kids lacking fathers in our major cities, they report to school until age 16 where they quit to join gangs. They account for their meaningless lives by pursuing violence. They shoplift, spray graffiti, steal cars, deal drugs, throw trash and commit arson.
Instead of addressing our social caldron boiling up with examples weekly, our president and Congress fund endless wars and nation-building in countries 10,000 miles away. Our country helps everyone else with foreign aid, military intervention—while our kids and citizens rot inside our own borders.
Nietzsche said, “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
I say, “If we don’t start thinking critically and acting with intelligence, our nation accelerates toward the same fate as all the bombings and killings you hear about weekly with religious fanatics blowing up churches and malls in Iraq and Nairobi, Kenya.”
For those Americans who lack any comprehension of what’s coming to the United States, we remain on course to import another 100 million immigrants from all over the world with dozens of different cultures and languages—right into the guts of America by 2050—a scant 37 years from now.
“Immigrants devoted to their own cultures and religions are not influenced by the secular politically correct façade that dominates academia, news-media, entertainment, education, religious and political thinking today,” said James Walsh, former Associate General Counsel of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. “They claim the right not to assimilate, and the day is coming when the question will be how can the United States regulate the defiantly unassimilated cultures, religions and mores of foreign lands? Such immigrants say their traditions trump the U.S. legal system. Balkanization of the United States has begun.”
Will we survive it as a cohesive civilization? Answer: probably not!
