Finally, a little back and forth in the letters to the editor section on a current and divisive issue. Good to see people getting motivated and expressing their thoughts on issues of the day.
Seems some folks took great umbrage at the lesbian gal being voted prom king at RTHS. Man, this school can’t meet minimum state or federal standards on math and reading, but they sure have the dippy diversity thing down pat.
This kind of stuff is a part of why so many Americans work their fingers to the bone to send their kids to private schools or to home school them.
It sure does illustrate wonderfully the enormous moral chasm between traditional American values and modern, liberal “if it feels good do it” values.
No doubt that if 20 years ago someone told you there would be a lesbian prom ‘king” on the front page of your dink-town paper — let alone homosexual marriage becoming a reality in your state — you just wouldn’t have believed them.
But here we are.
If you’re getting exasperated with this moral slide and wonder about not just how it came to pass but also the rapidity of its onset, you need to read David Kupelian’s book “The Marketing of Evil; How Radicals, Elitists and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom.”
The title really says it all. Everything that rational people would call cultural rot — from the destruction of marriage, the sexual revolution and the slaughter of human life in the womb that came with it to multicultural moral relativism, gay rights and the campaign against God in the public sphere — was and is slickly marketed to Americans.
A quote from the jacket provides an excellent summary.
“The plain truth,” Kupelian writes, “is that within the space of our lifetime, much of what Americans once almost universally abhorred has been packaged, perfumed, gift-wrapped and sold to us as though it had great value. By skillfully playing on our deeply felt national values of fairness, generosity and tolerance, these marketers have persuaded us to embrace as enlightened and noble that which all previous generations since America’s founding regarded as grossly self-destructive-in a word, evil.”
Learn how the loose morals left uses everything at its disposal to push its agenda on us and most despicably, our children.
They intentionally gravitate toward the means of information control, ie; the media, the entertainment industry and of course, our schools. And as the title of the book suggests, they use the slickest, most modern, tested and proven marketing techniques originally invented for the advertising world.
Every American who instinctively knows something is going wrong in our society today but can’t quite process or explain it needs to read this book.
It is enlightening, distressing and downright scary but ultimately uplifting as it provides a real achievable solution, one that has been with us all along.
Read this book to find out who the con-men are and how they operate and as always on this or any other issue, whether you’re a defender of tradition or a champion of depravity, keep those letters coming.
It’s a good thing.
