More Deadly Than War

G. Edward Griffin delivered a prophetic warning about the communist menace in his 1969 lecture entitled, "More Deadly Than War." Americans may find it instructive to consider this lecture, which was delivered shortly after the Johnson Administration's passage of groundbreaking Civil Rights legislation. Did his lecture concerning a communist plan to incite racial tensions in order to divide the United States and impose a totalitarian regime prove eerily prophetic?

Did G. Edward Griffin's words portend our sheepish, politically correct modern culture? Will Americans continue to foster the "unity of division," playing right into the hands of the communists? This is one of the most important questions to be asked, and perhaps one of the most easily answered. Communism appeals to the emotions rather than reason and logic, and today, hundreds of thousands of children are being groomed to discard their rational and critical thinking abilities in exchange for "thinking with their feelings."

Today's youth are characterized as being lazy, ill-informed, and tragically, they seem to have become beguiled the most by the propaganda of division and entitlement. They feel the need to escape reality into a "safe space" whenever some objectivist has the audacity to challenge their delusional world view. They are the results of decades of failed educational policies where the brightest are scorned for making the average kids look dumb. They are the results of an educational system that punishes individual creative thought and rewards collectivist group-think. And they are the results of participation trophies, where even the least capable are rewarded for little more than their ability to breathe. These children are the future. They are becoming voters. They have no conception of history. They're being taught in colleges throughout the country that social justice is more important than science, technology, medicine and philosophy. They're falling for the communist propaganda hook, line and sinker.

The communists in America used to hide in the shadows. They used to keep their agendas muddled so as to confuse the public. Today, however, more and more people are openly and boldy proclaiming themselves to be socialists. It would seem, they have nothing to fear from an ever-growing non-thinking public that is increasingly supportive and sympathetic to their cause. When Mr. Griffin gave his lecture in 1969, the threat of the communist menace was considered to be more deadly than war. Today, that threat has now almost completely mutated into the cold, hard reality that world communism is now just a matter of time. America--and indeed the world at large--has a monumental choice to make that will decide the desitny of the human race. And time is rapidly running out.
