Mind Control Rages as America "Repents" For a Straw Man

This article continues on from a previous one I have written on the encroachment of cultural and classic Marxism into the very fabric of our nation. It falls under the heading of “know your enemy”. As I have written in a previous note, we are under attack by principalities and powers, and in this article I seek to share additional understanding into just what we are up against as spiritual powers manifest in the physical realm.
The article linked below in the “The Orwellian Example of Mind Control” section describes something straight out of the George Orwell’s book "1984". The poor business owner this article is about has been completely subjugated by the group think of the cultural Marxists. To understand what happened to this man, an understanding of cultural Marxism and it’s goals will be helpful first.

From the article: 
“Marx believed that feudalism would lead to capitalism. Capitalism would create massive inequality between the rich and the poor. The workers would all rise up, and overthrow the hated “bourgeoisie” (the upper class). There would then be a “dictatorship of the proletariat” (the workers) which would ensure equality. Then that government would wear away and break down, and the world would be left with this utopian, egalitarian society."
Essentially, cultural Marxism achieves it's goals by causing division in the people, and magnifying that division to a point where civil war breaks out and the social order breaks down. In Marx's time, that division was intended to be economic. We have seen various manifestations of this cultural war through the years at various levels, including Feminism, Equal Rights, and today, Racial Injustice. Each of these sources of division are used as a pretext by Marxists to stir up the masses to the end that the American system of government is torn down. Their goal is to replace the American culture with a "new utopia", and that "new utopia" is Communism.

Cultural and Classic Marxist Groups and Goals

The Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement has this to say regarding the present struggle:
"We believe the Civil War was never resolved and the system of slavery transitioned into the prison industrial complex. Our struggle today must begin from this starting point. Lastly, as revolutionary anarchists, the abolitionist struggle must be extended to the state and capitalism, the perpetrators of oppression. The revolutionary movement in the US today is at a cross roads, as fascist movements are expanding, and the state becomes increasingly authoritarian." (
These folks, with whom Black Lives Matter are associated, believe in the destruction of capitalism, democracy and the rule of law which is quite apparent from reading their material. They are the forces at play today.

Collective Guilt

One of the primary tools of the Marxist is “Collective Guilt”. This is seen in their use of terms such as "systemic racism" and "white privilege". These terms apply collectively to a nation, rather than to individuals. Through using these terms, the focus is removed from individual responsibility, and is magnified by applying the responsibility for individual actions to an entire nation. In the case of the George Floyd killing, the focus is not on the individual police officers who perpetrated the crime, but on the nation systemically. We are fed this lie for the simple reason that the Marxist behind the violence whose goal is to destroy America will not accomplish their goals with a focus on individual guilt. That would only serve to bring down the individuals, when the goal is to bring down the nation. Hence, the claim that racism is not based on individual actions, but is based on the collective guilt a nation .
If the "collective" of America was truly and systemically racist, then we would never have elected a black man to the presidency....twice.

The Claim that America is Systemically Racist is a Lie and a Straw Man

The crisis that we are in is that of believing the lie of “systemic” racism. We have begun as a nation to respond to a straw man, or something that does not exist but Marxist want us to believe exists.
As Americans, we have begun to move from believing that “systemic” racism exists, to taking action based on that belief. We have started down a path where we are apologizing for it the straw man, we have started taking knees to show support for the straw man, we have started to support the tearing down of our history (not just southern slavery owners statues, but any statue, painting and otherwise that has anything to do with America's history), our legislature has begun to craft law to address the straw man (such as de-funding or abolishing police forces). We have played right into the Marxists hands, and have unknowingly joined forces with them, and are helping them to bring about this revolution. When we as Americans start doing all these things to appease the straw man, then the mind of the nation has been effectively transformed to believe a lie.

The Orwellian Example of Mind Control

Now that we have a basic understanding of cultural Marxism, and how it was used to manifest the straw man of American “collective guilt”, we can take a look at this astonishing article. This article shows what happens when the psyche of the nation is turned over to a Marxist mindset.
Note: I am not a friend of spiritual Yoga, believing that it is witchcraft, however, what happened to the owner of this business is a frightening indicator of just where we are at today and serves as a pertinent example.
This man, Patrick Harrington made the mistake of posting a comment to Instagram that provoked the mob, and ended up with him loosing his business. He lost his business due to groupthink from people who believe that "systemic” racism is real, they believe the straw man. Mr. Harrington actually supported those who came against him, he just wasn't supportive enough or in the right way. He wasn’t fully conformed.
From the article: 
"Harrington, a straight, white guy who expanded Kindness to nine studios and 160 employees across metro Denver, announced last week that he was closing them all after a handful of yoga teachers, including a Black woman and a transgender man, called out Kindness on social media for “performative activism” and “tokenization of Black and brown bodies.” 
The teachers’ public comments, following a Black Lives Matter post on Kindness’ Instagram page that they termed too little, too late, evoked a backlash that was fierce and immediate."
The people who have attacked Mr. Harrington are all victims of mental manipulation, or mind control, on the part of the Marxists who are bent on tearing town all of America. These people have become Marxist disciples running around participating in bringing about Marxists goals and have successfully torn down Mr. Harrington's business for a failure that is not his. The change in the thinking of these people and Mr. Harrington is itself a goal of the Marxists. If Marxist leaders can get the people to believe the straw man and respond to it, then they will have successfully brought to bear a major tool of division separating those who believe a lie from those who don’t.
Perhaps the most troubling aspect of this story is Mr. Harrington's response. Instead of having the awareness of what is going on and holding the line for truth, he completely caves in to the pressure of the lie.
He states: ”My goal is to represent our attempts at being a diverse, inclusive place where people felt like they belonged,” he begins, slowly. “I may not say things perfectly … I’m practicing learning how to speak in a way that is more inclusive and caring of diversity.”
Mr. Harrington's full response, is here -->
If this is the response of the majority of people under such attack, then we are lost and conformity to Marxist thought has come a long way to being solidified.

Our Only Solution

This straw man is a direct attack on the way we think. We can either adopt the Marxist way of thinking, or hold the line with our Judaeo-Christian way of thinking. All of what is going on today is designed to get our minds off of what is ultimately important, Jesus Christ, His death, burial and resurrection, and His transforming power to change the mind that is set on him. We are being asked to change our thinking to the Marxist way, and believe in lies. We must be vigilant and hold the line.
Romans 8:6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 
Jesus always has been, is, and always will be our only solution.

All Is Not as it Seems, Not at All

War has been declared on America.

This is a war of principalities and powers. The battle ground is our mind.

Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

The discourse on the armor of God in Ephesians 6 details the weapons that we have at our disposal. It is critical to note that the tenor of these weapons is defensive, and are designed to hold the line against attacks. Think of the long line of soldiers on the front line with their shields out front and spears dug into the ground pointed towards the enemy. They are not attacking, but holding the line. We are to hold the line against the attacking principalities and powers.

The Article, “The Lefts Long March to Anarchy”

This article provides clear and easily understandable description of the battle for minds that is front and center in our culture today. It outlines the enemy and his wiles. If we are to "hold the line" against principalities and powers, we need to know who the enemy is and what his strategies are, or we are going to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

From the article:

"As noted by the American academic Roger Kimball in The Long March, another essential aspect of critical theory is the belief that the most effective way to destroy capitalist society and bring about the new utopia is to take the long march through the institutions by engaging in the culture wars."

It should be noted that the goals of the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement, Black Lives Matter, and associated groups is to destroy capitalism, democracy and the rule of law. Their target is the very core of our culture, and their "new utopia" is communism.

From the article:

"A belief in competition and meritocracy in education, for example, is condemned as inequitable and unjust as it reinforces capitalist hierarchies and privilege where disadvantaged students are always condemned to fail."

The same is true of "religion, education, family and political, legal, media and cultural systems". What the author is talking about is a shift in the consciousness, or the collective paradigm of the people in the nation, or changing the way we think. We are being asked to change the way we think about religion, education, family etc. and see them as tools of the capitalist that must each be torn down and fundamentally transformed into their "new utopia" communism.

Summing It Up

Rom 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Cultural Marxism and Critical Theory (Google and study them) has been at work in the minds of America for decades, and is now breaking through the surface into our reality. As the article indicates, this is the "The Left's Long March....". I am sorry to say that as unjust as George Floyd's death was, it became a pretext, and has turned into a distraction for the powers of classic Marxism to create the narrative of division, and rub it raw. That is Marxism's MO. To divide and rub raw to foment violence and revolution, and we have a choice to think the way they do or be transformed in our minds by the Holy Spirit. If you are for tearing down statues, you are thinking the way the Marxists think, and I can assure you, this has nothing to do with racism. Paul said "there is nothing to an idol", and when people were offended that Paul was not offended he said, "why should I be judged by your conscience?".

The Marxist do not care if the dividing force is class warfare between the rich and the poor, between the LGBTQ and conservatives or between white and black, just so long as their is some division in values that they can take advantage of and whip the people into a frenzy. This is who our enemy is.

But as Christians, we are not to be conformed to the world, we are to be transformed by the renewal of our minds. We are to have the mind of Christ, not a mind that creates division and rubs it raw. This is the line that we must hold. Marx said that "religion is the opiate of the masses".

Marxist recognize that Christians are standing dead center between them and their goals, and Christian persecution is coming, sooner or later (Rev 13:7). Now, and much more so when persecution arrives, we must have the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, feet with the readiness of the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.

As Christians our way forward is clear.

  1. We must study and know our Bible like never before.
  2. We must have renewed urgency to win the lost to Christ.
  3. We must be ready to guide each other in gaining and maintaining the mind of Christ.
If we can do that, we regain our hold on the line, and keep it advancing. But even if the line is lost, our way forward does not change.

What Just Happened While We Weren't Looking!?

The SCOTUS and “The Civil Rights Act”

In 1964, a law was passed called "The Civil Rights Act". In this  law was a provision (Title VII) prohibiting discrimination (of women) on  the basis of "sex". This precept was about affording women rights equal  to that of men.

What the SCOTUS did on that Monday, June 15,  2020, was to redefine the term "sex" as it was defined in Title VII of  the Civil Rights Act to mean "sexual orientation" of all types,  homosexuality, transgenderism, and so on. No longer does "sex" mean the  biological sex of a man vs. a woman, but now it means "sexual  orientation" of any type. Yes, I mean now, this was their ruling on June  15th.

What the SCOTUS did is create new legislation, something  that only the Legislative branch of our government has the authority to  do. If the Supreme court followed textualism, strictly adhering to what  the text of Title VII actually said, as they should do, then there is no  way they would have interpreted this law as speaking of anything except  a man and a woman's biological sex.

Expanding beyond the text  of Title VII was a bold usurpation of the authority of the Legislative  branch of government by the Judiciary. Only the Legislative branch has  the authority to create new laws, and they were in the process of  attempting legally to do so via The Equality Act. It is likely that The  Equality Act can now be dropped since the Judiciary, in redefining what  "sex" meant in Title VII, effectually accomplished much or all of what  the Equality Act was seeking.


The separation of powers has been dealt a devastating blow as the  Judiciary usurped the authority of the Legislative branch of our  government by a 6-3 vote. This is particularly disturbing because the  members of the Legislature are in place as representatives of the  people. The people have a direct affect on what laws are created through  legislative representation (Congress and the House). The Judiciary is  appointed for life. They do not represent the people, as all they are to  do is render opinions regarding the law. When such a small group of 9  justices usurps the Legislative branch, and moves from rending opinions  to changing the law, the people are no longer represented in the  creation of law, and this opens the door to Tyranny. This is a  disturbing development on the part of the Supreme Court of the United  States.

But This Is Nothing New

We have been watching for the last 3  months as the Executive branch of our government has been raiding the  Legislative branch as well.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have  seen wave after wave of governors, mayors, and local authorities  (Executive branch) issue "executive orders" which in effect have created  "laws" governing the wearing of masks, social distancing, closing of  businesses, and so on.
While "emergency powers" should be  available for crisis, the last three months has been a sufficient length  of time to overcome "emergency" status and return law making to the  Legislature, where it belongs, but that has not happened. Governors and  local governments are continuing to govern by "executive order" and  excluding the Legislative branch.

The blurring of the lines  of separation of powers in American government should be extremely  disturbing for every American. When the highest court in the land starts  engaging in this behavior, something is seriously wrong. Tyranny  happens when a small unelected and unaccountable group gets the power to  create the laws. Our system of three branches of government was  specifically set up to ensure that the creation of law was based on  representation. If this trend continues, and the Supreme Court's  participation in this is ominous, we will loose the ability to govern  ourselves through a representative form of government.

As  bad as all that is, we now need to stop and consider what this new  "Judicial legislation" actually contains. It is especially disturbing  not only to people of faith, but to all of us. The following article  covers just some of the impacts of this law, and is something all people  of faith should know about. This is going to affect all of our lives  from now onward.…/horowitz-scotus-decis…/
