Strange but true: Human rights are the tool for building a democratic totalitarianism.
After seeing this title, a reasonable reader would most probably ask the following questions.
@ I thought Human rights are a part of Judeo-Christian morals and individual liberties – why not?
@ OK, if you say they are not, what could be wrong with Human rights in themselves?
@ And how can a human-rights-rooted democracy lead to totalitarianism?
Let us address these questions.
Why Human rights are not a part of Judeo-Christian morals and individual liberties?
At the coreof American Judeo-Christian morals are individual freedoms ‘in the name and likeness of God’ (or in the name of something else that may please unbelievers).
Individual rights come with individual social responsibilities. Therefore, in a free society, and America was founded as such, everybody takes only those rights whose responsibilities he/she can handle – in family, in community, in all spheres of life – no less and no more.
That is why in a free society the people are unequal in their rights balanced with responsibilities – some can take more, and some are able to take just a little.
OK, let us take it as given. But what could be wrong with Human rights in themselves?
The giver and enforcer of Human rights is the government itself, and it assigns the rights without corresponding social responsibilities – with only one political requirement to obey government orders.
For example, human rights for one-sex family, for affirmative action and school bussing, for woke-ism education, or for public Bible education … without securing human rights of others to fight all that.
Human rights by the government mean ruining the individual freedoms of others.
Human rights by the government mean treating all as equal slave-subordinates.
How can a noble democracy lead to totalitarianism?
It is simple. Through the corrupted mass news-media which are thriving on money received from the government-supported corrupted monopolies, the government brainwashes the citizens to believe that all rights and happiness are coming from the totalitarian government, and only way to secure all that is to democratically vote for such a government.
America’s survival fight: religion-based moral behavior against government-forced ‘morality’ order
What is religion-based moral behavior?
Religions define a culture’s behaviors, morals, and customs, affecting all walks of life – music, art, family, marriage, education, funerals, holidays, etc. Religions define what is Good in life and should be supported, and what is Bad and should be fought against.
A nation consists of various communities with their own unique behavior virtues rooted historically in their unique religious denominational virtues, and those virtues are lived by both modern religious and non-religious, and America is no exception.
Religious institutions are guardians of morality – not morality creators.
A national government, the Feds, is managing the communal behavioral differences to secure national unity and cohesiveness.
In the historic past, the Feds in America successfully managed the differences but not anymore – now America is in a complete mess.
Why? – We find an answer in the history of other successful nations.
Among successful nations are Switzerland, UK, Germany, India …
Each of them is a union of internally independent entities: Cantons in Switzerland (24), Countries in UK (4), Federated States in Germany (16), States and territories in India (28+8). In these nations, the Federal Government governs only what the internally independent entities delegate, and the Feds in all successful nations do not legislate anything related to religion-based moral behavior in their independent entities.
Among unsuccessful nations are Russia and many countries of Africa.
The Feds in these nations have usurped the internal powers of all domestic entities and have suppressed all local religion-morality behavior with freshly baked new totalitarian morality orders.
These orders are numerous such as for example human rights, minority rights, gender rights, equality rights … and all these rights are superior to traditional religion-based moral behavior virtues.
American Founding Fathers knew the history and assumed this might happen again in this new nation – that is why the American Constitution was designed for limited power of the Feds – all internal powers were given to the States.
We violated the US Constitution, and now we are in a ruinous mess.
What to do? – Return all domestic powers to the States, let them manage their ownreligion-based moral behavior.
How to do this? – We may begin by electing Congress and the White House from those who understand all that and have ideas on how to achieve it.
That is true: Judeo-Christian America itself created domestic enemies with irreconcilable differences.
And Judeo-Christian America at fault herself – she has let her own government procreate a new breed of Americans who are hostile to Traditional America and forcefully trying to convert Judeo-Christian America to an America of their totalitarian dreams.
Major misconceptions led us to this sad situation.
We wrongly believed that people of the entire world were dreaming of coming to America to cherish individual freedoms along the lines of the Ten Commandments and make their own life without totalitarian oppression that was in old countries.
However, that is not true. Process of transforming humanity from paganism to unifying morality of the Ten Commandments (with different names in many Asian countries) that began over three millenniums ago on the Mount Sinai is still underway. And those who are not transformed yet are coming here believing in a good caring totalitarian government with free food, housing, medicine, etc. Also, they are coming here with their own rival traditions on family, women, gender, education, community, religion, crime, … and much more.
We wrongly believed that the policies of affirmative action, public housing, school bussing, and welfare may help the slave descenders recognize the greatness of Judeo-Christian America.
However, it looks like a great many of them hate America.
We wrongly believed that the government is using almost unrestricted taxation wisely along the line of Judeo-Christian virtues.
However, that is not true. When the government gets totalitarian powers, it cannot reverse itself – solidifying its power becomes the goal.
We wrongly believed that our ‘melting pot’ can finally create a homogeneous society.
However, that is not true. There is no human ‘melting pot’ able to change what was in development for millenniums.
We wrongly believed that our way of life is so attractive for the entire world that when we overthrow a dictatorship somewhere the people of this country will immediately mimic our way of life.
However, that is not true. All nations are unique in their traditions, and they hate and fight those who are globalizing the entire world and forcing them to live by foreign-to-them virtues.
We wrongly believed that one of the two political parties, if elected to govern, fixes all our problems.
However, that is not true anymore. Both political parties created our problems, and the only solution is to elect from both parties and independents those who support as the solution the reshaping the government to a small, limited, unintrusive one leaving all moral issues (family, women, gender, education, charity … and much more) to an individual, family, and community.
In the fight for our America, American Judeo-Christian majority should recognize falsehood rival’s assertions since the falsehood assertions are the powerful weaponry of our rivals.
Let us separate the truth from the falsehood spread by our rivals in news media, education, and slogans.
# The truth is that American Judeo-Christian morality is founding national governing morality – morality of individual freedoms that is rooted in the Ten Commandments and instructs the nation on what is GOOD and should be protected and what is BAD and should be restricted by the legislative actions.
The truth is that by legislating its own morality, government creates more hate and then creates “Hate crimes” laws that make hate worse.
The false assertion is that American Judeo-Christian morality violates the State-Church separation by US Constitution.
# The truth is that an almighty totalitarian government cannot create moral justice for the nation since moral national justice has been shaped for centuries and strengthened by the dominate religion.
The truth is that the government’s ‘moral justice’ aims at solidifying its own power and amassing its own wealth.
The false assertion is that social justice (not criminal) is created by an almighty totalitarian government and such a government’s utmost goal is helping ordinary citizens.
# The truth is that an almighty totalitarian government reaches its goals by making the life of ordinary citizens worse morally, economically, and then deceivingly promising to work hard to improve it.
The truth is that such a government’s design is to make the overwhelming majority dependent on government support.
The false assertion is that an almighty totalitarian government’s goal is to make the majority’s life better.
# The truth is that a threat to true democracy is delegitimizing the people’s election choice by judicial manipulations – an elected official should be removed only by his electorate.
The false assertion is that the US Constitution allows unelected judges to overpower the electorate choice.
# The truth is that American totalitarianism supports the world globalization for expanding its power to the entire world through imposing on other nations the ‘American way of life’ and suppressing other nations’ unique traditional morality.
The false assertion is that globalization helps ordinary citizens of less fortunate nations to make their life easier.
The falsehood of global climate change and coronavirus threats is a tool for strengthening global totalitarianism – climate and infectious diseases are changing from the very beginning and nations have been dealing with it not as threats but as challenges to be addressed locally in the private sector by innovative solutions.
# The truth is that President Trump is being dehumanized and criminalized from the very beginning by all Democrats and some Republicans for making Americans clearly understood true totalitarians’ goals and for his actions against American totalitarianism.
The false assertion is that killing Trump socially and politically would make ‘our democracy’ nice again.
And the truth is that Judeo-Christian America will be able to win only after delivering these truths to everybody.
History of Nazi Germany and Communist Russia is a warning for nowadays America, and if we do not understand it, we may repeat it.
*Germany and Russia as nations of traditional virtues before WWI*
Before WWI, Germany and Russia were nations with traditional virtues and the absolute majority lived by them. Those virtues were the Bible guided virtues in Russian Orthodox Church interpretation (for Russians) and in Protestant Church interpretation (for Germans). Individual liberties were not among those virtues, but honorable wars were. Both nations were building good economies and the wellbeing of the citizens was on the rise.
*Spiritual and economic collapse in Germany and Russia after WWI*
Virtue of honorable wars made Germany and Russia the fathers of WWI where they were defeated with following spiritual and economic collapse in both nations.
Spiritual permissiveness (open corruption, prostitution, homosexualism, personal insecurity, no-virtue education …) and economic hardship (unstoppable inflation, lack of jobs, reparations …) made the citizens desperate for finding a political power that would be able to stop the collapse and begin restoration of traditional virtues.
Nazis and Communists were seen as only political powers the people were desperately searching for. Political powers of various social-democratic colors were perceived as unable for decisive immediate actions.
*Nazis and Communists as only hopeful ‘saviors’ of traditional virtues of Germans and Russians*
In Germany, two brutal forces, Nazis and Communists, were perceived at the time as the only ‘saviors,’ and Nazis won.
The Nazis won because they promised, and delivered, what Germans needed desperately – Life by traditional virtues. By the Nazis, impermissible behaviors were forbidden and criminalized, the economy flourished, inflation no more, new highways and affordable family cars were appreciated by everybody, etc.
The Communists lost because they were promising the heavenly-Marxist world order with ‘happiness and equality’ for everybody that Germans could not understand.
In Russia, Communist were only one brutal force, and they won.
The Communists won because they appealed to the virtues of ordinary Russians – love for a strong national power which can be blamed for all personal misfortunes cased mostly by traditional personal misbehaviors.
The Communists did not promise economic revival and making the people more prosperous. They promised redistribution of wealth from those who make it to those who support them, and they delivered.
*Brutal transformation of German/Russian traditional virtues to Nazi/Communist supremacist orders*
But the utmost goal of Nazis and Communists was the same – to be the only supreme power over the entire world.
In pursuing this goal in 1930-1940, Hitler captured most of Europe and Stalin extended his power to the eastern Europe (Poland, Bessarabia, Latvia, Estonia, Litva) and tried unsuccessfully to enlarge his lands to the far east (Japan, China) and north-west (Finland).
Historic unique virtues of the captured nations were forcefully substituted by Nazi/Communist orders.
*Earthy ruthless Hitler-God and Stalin-God replaced the Heavenly God*
Inside Germany and Russia, each nation was divided into two rival camps – those who unquestionably followed the orders of Hitler/Stalin-God and those who did not.
Those who did not follow the orders, among them many religious leaders, were ‘relocated’ to concentration and labor camps.
GESTAPO in Nazi Germany and KGB in Communist Russia were monitoring everybody’s behaviors and severely punishing for any deviation from the Supreme’s orders.
Then, the unavoidable happened – a war between the two supremacists, Nazis and Communists that was transformed into WWII. This war crushed the Nazi’s regime as a global threat and laid out a foundation for future demise of the Communist Russia, USSR, (Churchill’s Fulton speech).
*Western World as crusher of Nazi/Communist supremacist orders during and after WWII*
Western World (mostly USA, UK, Canada) won because her citizens were defending the life by their Judeo-Christian virtues rooted in the Ten Commandments, the life of individual liberties.
*What America had to learn from the history of Nazi Germany and Communist Russia but has not*
The recent history tells us that the following things will most probably lead to public desperation and pave the way for supremacist’s regimes (Nazi, Communist or something else), and no democratic nation is immune from it:
Ruining traditional virtues
Falling economic wellbeing
Neglecting God as the source of human eternity and happiness, and guidance on how to make it
Splitting a nation into rival camps
Remaking other nations in ‘our own image’ – not in the image of God
Directing intelligence organizations to spy on own citizens
All those things are clearly seen in present-day America, and that is a prescription for repeating history.
