Forum: Is America’s Culture Dysfunctional? How Would You Change It?

Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watcher’s Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day. This week’s question: Is America’s Culture Dysfunctional? How Would You Change It?

The Independent Sentinel: I love your questions Rob.

The answer is yes!! The culture is dysfunctional. When the man or woman or teen on the street doesn’t know who the president is or what the NSA is up to but can come up with Kim Kardashian’s baby’s name, that’s fairly dysfunctional. When people are rooting for the filibustering lady who thinks it’s okay to abort full-term babies, that’s every dysfunctional. People who are willing to sign petitions to repeal the Bill of Rights leave me speechless.

Our media is violent, vulgar, and misleading and that’s a reflection of who we are.

The Brave New World has come to pass. We need Wall-e.

That being said, my solution is to lock up the extreme Democrats and there are some on the extreme right who need to be thrown in the clink too.

Until we address the core problems, nothing will get better. We need to believe in something and it can’t be Jay-Z. We have to stand for something, and it can’t be entitlements and money. We have to have a strong work ethic and a desire to be the best we can be and that would mean we have figured out how to extricate ourselves from the couch.

We certainly have to understand there is a broad swath of humanity out there that we should care about and a world we should contribute to, which would require us to accept that the “I” and “me” culture doesn’t work.

One doesn’t have to believe in a higher power, but one has to believe some things are not relative. There are core values that one should stick with and never abandon. Never sacrifice your soul! Teach your children well because if you don’t do that, there’s hardly anything else that matters.

Most of all, never give up!

The psycho-babble generation spends too much time wallowing in self-pity and doing drugs, eating, and drinking.

We can come back. Yin and Yang.

GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD: Trick question. As a fully crunk democrazy – our culture and scene au courant is a killer montage of fun and free choice. Or as Uncle Tony Blair so hotly saged it – “The freedom for you to be you as long as it doesn’t halt me from being me” – somewhat simple – tho not simplistic.

JoshuaPundit: Yes and no, although sadly,it’s trending that way. What passes for our culture these days largely originates in Manhattan and Los Angeles,where the major media and entertainment centers are. What passes for the norm in these and other urban enclaves has very little to do with what passes for culture in the Heartland, although enough of it has leached in to be destructive.

It’s important to realize that America’s traditional culture was deliberately attacked by the Soviets, who were following a strategy laid down by on of Lenin’s favorite strategists, Italian communist Antonio Gramschi. Gramschi said that the communist revolution could never be spread effectively by armed struggle, but that capitalist societies could be rotted from within by taking over areas like academia, the arts, radio and motion pictures and other political, cultural and social institutions. The Comintern was specifically formed to coordinate this strategy in 1919, and the full details – including the names of a number of outright Soviet agents and symphathizers became available thanks to the declassified cables of the Venona Project and acces given to historians to the Soviet Archives during Boris Yeltsin’s presidency of Russia.

My prediction is that economic hard times and what I can only call an end to certain illusions are going to result in a resurgence of our traditional culture…it wi9ll change because it has to if America is to remain a cohesive country,

Well, there you have it.

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum. And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

    “From bondage to spiritual faith.
    From spiritual faith to great courage.
    From courage to liberty.From liberty to abundance.
    From abundance to selfishness.
    From selfishness to complacency.
    From complacency to apathy.
    From apathy to dependency.
    From dependency back again into bondage.”

  2. Cal says:

    America is dysfunctional for a lot of reasons, the corporate media being only one (Realize that the coporate meida is a cartel – unlawful here in the USA: Supreme Court, Red Lion v. FCC, 1969: “It is the purpose of the First Amendment to preserve an uninhibited marketplace of ideas in which truth will ultimately prevail, rather than to countenance monopolization of that market, whether it be by the Government itself or a private licensee. It is the right of the public to receive suitable access to social, political, esthetic, moral, and other ideas and experiences which is crucial here. That right may not constitutionally be abridged either by Congress or by the FCC.”.)

    English is the language spoken here, yet we put everything into, and provide interpreters for, almost every language. Why?

    That is a progressive movement that allowed those who immigrated here legally, and those who came here illegally to not have to integrate into the American culture. Then they kept in groups (as those with similarities usually do), few of who speak, read, or write english well and knowledgeably which further isolated them from American culture. Basically America did not become a nation of a vast mixture of people, it became a nation of little foreign nations scattered throughout that had/has no idea of individual freedom, what a constitutional republic really is, but usually do understand that those in government usually do what they want with no repercussions.

    What this caused is further divisiveness with little commonality here in the USA, which is exactly why it was done. It is always much easier to destroy a nation that is divided, then one that may be diverse but with a common understanding and goals of the nation. It is the old “divide and conquor” that has always proven to work over human history.

    ”When people settle in a foreign country with little or no intention of abandoning their native culture, or, increasingly, no intention of abandoning their native language and native political allegiance, the correct word for the process isn’t ‘reverse assimilation’. And it isn’t immigration. The correct word in the English language is ‘colonization’. Because that’s exactly what it is.” KC McAlpin, Executive Director, ProEnglish

    ”A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in America has not yet become an American.” W.Wilson

    ”There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities”. T. Roosevelt

    That is why everyhting is in all languages, why remaing “true” to the culture in what they were raised is encouraged instead of becomeing American. That is why most immigrants today think of themselves as whatever nationality they came from first, practice the culture and practices from where they came – even sacrificial animals, and think of the USA as a land where they live and get free money, housing, food, without having to change at all. They are not Americans, even if they get citizenship, they are colonizers. They were enfouraged because it created a way to weaken the USA enough to do what we are seeing done today – destroy the USA.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
