Resources on Marxism, Leninism and Political Correctness
[ Political Correctness ] originated as something of a joke, literally in a comic strip, and we tend still to think of it as only half-serious. In fact, it’s deadly serious. It is the great disease of our century, the disease that has left tens of millions of people dead in Europe, in Russia, in China, indeed around the world. It is the disease of ideology. PC is not funny. PC is deadly serious.Accuracy in Academia: The Origins of Political Correctness
Political correctness was first in force immediately in Communist Russia after the 1917 revolution. In one sense, it is reasonable to say political correctness in play on America’s college campuses, in American news media, and in the halls of Congress are tantamount to Russian interference in our governmental affairs.
I, for one, am thankful to God for raising up businessman Donald Trump to be our 45th President. He is truly the Great Disruptor of the status quo in Washington politics and world trade. The Great Disruptor whose goal is to make America great again does not fall prey to Marxist-Leninist political correctness.
At the Root of the Problem
Authority defined: (1) power to influence or command thought, opinion, or behavior; (2) the right, power, or ability to control, command, or decide; (3) three spheres of Biblical authority: civil government, the home, and the church
No one person is an authority unto himself or herself. Everyone is accountable to a higher authority.
The ultimate authority? As it is written in Romans 13:1, ” Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”
In those cases where persons in position of governance do not believe in God, they assume themselves to be authorities unto themselves. Since all true authority comes from God, the godless have no authority whatsoever.
Same City, Two Different Mayors, Two Outcomes
In the aftermath of the 911 attack on the WTC in NY City, Rudy Giuliani became known as “America’s Mayor”.
Concerning two disparate worldviews, Giuliani openly professes his faith in and dependence on God. (Reference | Christianity Today – Rudy Giuliani: ‘I Pray to Jesus for Guidance’) de Blasio claims to be “spiritual but not religious”. (Reference | National Catholic Reporter: Bill de Blasio, New York’s new ‘spiritual but not religious’ mayor)
Both mayors are avowed pro abortion, a quandary for any professing Christian. Historically, pro-abortion Christian politicians eventually experience an epiphany and become solidly pro-life, as it was for Ronald Reagan.
Under the leadership of Rudy Giuliani and his successor Mayor Bloomberg, crime dropped dramatically. But, under the mayoral rule of de Blasio, crime dramatically spikes, as we saw in recent news stories on the attacks on NYPD officers by street thugs.
An NYPD source said, ” It’s disgusting, embarrassing. There’s lawlessness around here now.”… A police source blamed the incidents on the NYPD’s “hands-off approach to these guys” under Mayor Bill de Blasio … “There’s total anarchy out here. This is very sad.” An NYPD source said, ” It’s disgusting, embarrassing. There’s lawlessness around here now.”
When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice.Proverbs 29:2 NLT
But when the wicked are in power, they groan.
What’s the Cure?
A peaceful society is the product of a society that respects authority. All authority comes from God. Therefore, for a society to enjoy peace it must obey God. To obey God, people must believe that He is and that it is in Him that we live and move and have our existence (Acts 17:28).
The cure is for our nation to turn to God, repent of our sins, change our evil ways, and call on the Lord to heal our land. Don’t allow the leftists, the ungodly, to paralyze you with political correctness. Speak the truth in love.
Yes, there is a cure.
