I grew up amid the major threat of Communism being part of American life. It was always only a threat until recent years when it has actually manifested its influence in our daily life. I’ve been trying to understand what we are seeing and how we have arrived here.
Until the last few years, I had recognized Communism as an oppressive governmental approach to organizing society. I had thought the principal tool for regimes to get there was the use of police and military power. Communist propaganda techniques were always part of the discussions but I, not having any expertise in public media or communications, never really understood the important role that plays in capturing the people. The last nine years on Ricochet has been an education in this for me.
We are now in a decisive battle for the preservation of the republic that America’s Founders handed us, documented by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution amended with the Bill of Rights.
The Democrats, Progressives, and Communists, many of whom fit all three of those descriptors, have been working for more than a century towards the end of making America collectivist and part of a venture to establish a global collectivist society. A very big element in this conquest venture is that propaganda activity I mentioned that I didn’t really understand in depth. I think I’m seeing that better now that we are right in the middle of the process.
The lies and deceptions are never-ending. Facts and Truth are absent. Public education, advanced academia, public media, and government all act in concert to spread the message of largely false propaganda. As we witnessed during the Covid pandemic for the medical profession, almost all traditional institutions have been corrupted and no longer present a truthful picture of their represented field. Among these are corporate business, education, banking, housing, energy, healthcare, and it goes on and on with little truthful information being presented.
There are many essays appearing regularly here on Ricochet revealing what is happening in America.
I hope and pray we are attentive and ready to go to work to save America.Published in
