A Nation As A Harmony of Interests

“For Thomas Jefferson, responsible action and a common mind leading to harmony of interests was the factor that could allow for political decentralization. If these factors did not exist, consolidated political administration (authoritarianism) would be necessary to protect and foster order.

Our modern outlook thus warps our perspective. For this reason, our federal government thinks nothing of allowing in as immigrants an increasing number of people who are religiously and racially hostile to us. They see no relationship between faith and land. As a result, the United States and the Western world have embarked on a suicidal course. They reject the concept of Christendom and embrace instead the humanistic “family of man,” and thus immigration policies in the U.S. and Europe are based on myths and illusions of a destructive nature.

All that is being said here by Jefferson and RJR is that a country that is comprised of people from different ethnicities/races and different worldview and religions will be a Balkanized country that requires a totalitarian state in order to keep order.

This explains why I refuse to refer to America as a nation, choosing the word “country” instead. America has no harmony of interests among its competing races and people groups. A nation can exist where there are differing social classes if those social classes share the same kinship and worldview/religion but a nation cannot exist where the unifying point of blood and worldview/religion is non-existent. It cannot even exist for long where even one of the two are absent.

So, what is America’s unifying point as a country? What keeps this country from flying apart in an ongoing conflict of interests? Well, to date the answer to that question has been the fact that America has, historically, been able to maintain a genuine middle class while borrowing against its future in order to mollify (pay off) the lower class. In brief America’s unifying point has been cheap goods cheaply come by but that window is fast closing as our National Debt rockets prices and makes paying off the lower class unlikely.

Now our elite class understands this and is working overtime to eliminate the differentiation that exists as among our various races/peoples and worldviews. Their project has been to push Americans into inter-racial marriages so that all people group, and racial/ethnic group distinctions end. This can be easily seen by advertising, commercials, movie themes, University sales brochures and now church attendance in mega churches. The inescapable theme in all these is that people of different races must miscegenate so that we are no longer a white majority nation. The goal is to once again reach Jefferson’s common mind. It will be the common mind of the lowest common denominator. Such a people will be easier for the elite class to govern.

Failure in this project means that the only option left for a unifying point in America is pure unvarnished governmental force. This was the point that was made by Robert Putnam in bowling alone. Putnam argued that where peoples of vastly different backgrounds and religions are slammed together this results in balkanization and the only option for a balkanized people in terms of creating a stable social order is the force of arms. The more America and the West are flooded with the immigrant, stranger and alien the more Governmental authoritarian force is a surety.

Now, the inconvenient question must be asked; Cui Bono… who benefits? And the answer to that would be the one people group with a shared worldview that can avoid this kind of amalgamation. That people group, if being financially positioned could dominate all the amalgamated lands and rule the world.

America, at this point, is already too far down the drain in order to see it return to its predominant WASP social order. God’s ways are altogether just. The question as Christians we now face in the disintegrating West is, “How can we save our children.”

This is a brief primer that points the way to answers.

1.) We must teach our children our undoubted Christian faith. We must communicate that it is a triumphing faith and that it is not satisfied unless that faith spreads.

2.) We must teach our children that our undoubted Christian faith is a world and life view. We must get a faith in their head that is not singularly tied to the Church as Institution. It is not that we denigrate the Church but we communicate that the Kingdom of God is broader and wider than the visible Church.

3.) If we belong to the heritage of Christian Europe we must communicate to our children that they may not marry outside Christian Eurocentric lines. If we belong to some other people group or race/ethnicity we must likewise encourage our children to marry Christians within that people group who embrace a biblical Christianity.

4.) We must teach our children history from a Christian perspective. A people torn from their historical roots cannot be a people for long. In order for Christians in their people groups to proliferate, they must have Christian heroes both inside and outside the Scriptures. At the same time, we must expose the wickedness of false heroes that have been foisted on us by the enemy.

5.) We must shepherd our children in their friendships. It will do little good for us to teach our children well if they create bonds with those from other families who do not share this world and life view. We must try to seek to make our children familial-centric.

6.) We must also thoroughly teach them that our current government hates them and has every intention of destroying what we and they believe. The government is the enemy that has to be dealt with deftly. We must do all we can to steer them away from any association with the humanist Christ-hating government.

  1. Just substitute the word ‘America’ for ‘Russia’ and you’ll get the idea of what ‘they’ have in mind:

    The police, so far the instrument of the government power, was likewise deprived of its political functions and was reorganized into a responsible and revocable weapon of the ‘Commune’ as well as the officers of other institutions. … After having dug an abyss between the governing class and the population, we shall take the power into our hands. Lenin is of opinion that, on coming to power, it is necessary … to create a new army to serve as a weapon of defense for the new government. pp. 392-3. You know the Russian proverb: ‘Where there is a bog, you are sure to find devils.’ Once in power, we shall have a sufficient number of blackguards, outcasts and varlets of the revolution at our disposal. We’ll secure them a good living. p. 395. You must understand that Russia is being set aside. Proletarians of all countries, worthless fellows who have been unable to create even their own personal welfare are going to be invited to participate in the construction of Russia’s welfare. Men who are destroying and who despise everything are invited to create the power of a country. p. 337.
