Serving God & Country....Defending Faith & Freedom

An Outreach of What's Right What's Left Ministry

 

Welcome to the ISMS Page

To fully understand what is happening to our culture, schools and to our Republic - if our Republic has not already been lost - one must know and understand the "...isms" that dominate and permeate modern thought and philosophy. Here we will define and look at the isms that influence and control your world.

 

[ Darwinism/Social Darwinism ] [ Existentialism ] [ Federalism ] [ Feminism ] [ Humanism/Human Secularism ]
[ Marxism/Communism ] [ Nationalism ] [ Relativism ] [ Socialism ]

 

Darwinism/Social Darwinism:

The dictionary definition of Darwinism: 'A theory of the origin and perpetuation of new species of animals and plants that offspring of a given organism vary, that natural selection favors the survival of some of these variations over others, that new species have arisen and may continue to arise by these processes, and that widely divergent groups of plants and animals have arisen from the same ancestors; biological evolutionism.'

The dictionary definition of Social Darwinism: An extension of Darwinism to social phenomena; a theory in sociology: sociocultural advance is the product of intergroup conflict and competition and the socially elite classes (as those possessing wealth and power) possess biological superiority in the struggle for existence.

Existentialism

The dictionary definition: A chiefly twentieth century philosophical movement embracing diverse doctrines but centering on analysis of individual existence in an unfathomable universe and the plight of the individual who must assume ultimate responsibility for his acts of free will without any certain knowledge of what is right or wrong or good or bad.

Chairman's note: Soren Kierkegaard is the father of existentialism - he gave the church what theologians call neoorthodoxy. In his own works he stated, "I conceived it my task to create difficulties everywhere". To paraphrase (he was writing about himself) you must do something 'for the world' and inasmuch as it will be impossible to make anything easier, you must undertake to make something harder. He was speaking of philosophers when he went on to say to himself and others, "I, like the rest of them, would be loved and esteemed by the whole community". Probably the best definition to be found on existentialism came from Walter A. Kaufman, in his book, Existentialism From Dostovesky To Sartre, "the refusal to belong to any school of thought, the repudiation of the adequacy of any body of beliefs whatever, and especially of systems, and a marked dissatisfaction with traditional philosophy as superficial, academic, and remote from life - that is the heart of existentialism". It is a pervasive nonphilosophical point of view that embodies permissiveness. It is a denial of all points of view, and announces that there is no truth, no intermediate truth. There is only the moment... like they say, 'if it feels good, do it'

Humanism/Human Secularism

The dictionary definition of humanism: A devotion to the humanities; liberty culture; a revival of classical letters, individualistic and critical spirit, and emphasis on secular concerns characteristic of the Renaissance. Humanitarianism a doctrine, aptitude, or way of life centered on human interests or values; a philosophy that rejects supernaturalism (God) and stresses an individual's dignity and worth and capacity for self-realization through reason.
 

The chairman's definition of human secularism (as an official dictionary definition could not be located in several reference books): Human secularism is a philosophy and pseudo-religion (U.S. Supreme Court   in a 1961 ruling acknowledged humanism's religious nature) where man is a part of nature emerging as the result of a continuous process... and the human species is an emergence from natural evolutionary forces.

They  are nontheists, who portend humans are responsible for what they are or will become; a socialized and cooperative economic order must be established to the end that the  equitable distribution of the means of life be possible; the movement must be toward the building of a world community in which all sectors of the human family can participate. All moral values derive their source from human experience - ethics are autonomous and situation (moral relativism); maximum individual freedom, no social sanctions on sexual behavior and individuals should be permitted to express their sexual proclivities and pursue lifestyles as desired.

Marxism/Communism:

The dictionary definition - Marxism: The political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Marx; a theory and practice of socialism including the labor theory of value, dialectical materialism, the class struggle, and dictatorship of the Proletariat until the establishment of a classless society.

The dictionary definition - Communism: A theory advocating elimination of private property; a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed; a doctrine based on revolutionary Marxian socialism; a totalitarian system of government in which a single authoritarian party control state-owned means of production; the final stage of society in Marxist theory in which the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably - communist collective society.

WARNING...
Philip Foner, author of Karl Marx Remembered, had this to say, 

"I am confident that when the 200th anniversary of the death of  Karl Marx will be observed, the entire world will be socialist."

 

Marx died March 17, 1883.

1919 - Communist Rules for Revolution

These nine rules were seized in a raid in Dusseldorf Germany, in 1919. The files were marked, "Communist Rules for Revolution".
  • Corrupt the young: get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness.
  • Get control of all means of publicity. Get peoples' minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books, plays and other trivialities.
  • Divide people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.
  • Destroy the peoples' faith in their natural leaders by holding the latter up to contempt, ridicule and . (speak against, condemnatory utterances)
  • Always preach true democracy; but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.
  • By encouraging government extravagance, destroy its credit; produce fear of inflation, rising prices and general discontent.
  • Foment strikes in vital industries; encourage civil disorders and foster a lenient and soft attitude on the part of government toward these disorders.
  • By special argument cause a breakdown of the old moral virtues; honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.
  • Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext with a view of confiscation of them and leaving the population helpless. -- from Set Up and Sold Out, by Holly Swanson, published by C.I.N. Publishing

 

The following is from The Communist Press, documentary research, which has been provided to Restoring America by our friend and ally, Dr. Paul Busiek.

"About the pamphlet, The Communist Press [printed, September, 1972]: This pamphlet consists of Gus Hall's opening report on the significance of the 1972 elections, plus his summary and his concluding remarks, to a meeting of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, December 8-10, 1972. The opening Report was delivered on December 8. The Summary and the Concluding Remarks refer to subsequent reports by Henry Winston, Daniel Rubin, Helen Winter and Charlene Mitchell, as well as to Gus Hall's report, and to the discussion on all of these reports."

"A message from Gus Hall, General Secretary of the Communist Party, U.S.A. since 1959."

"The Role of the Liberals"

[researcher's note: Communists use liberals; Liberals as allies of Communism]

"In America the need of an independent Workingman's party has been made manifest." "...liberals are not a political force unto themselves but are reflections of other class forces." [page 22]

"Is this then, the end of the liberals? Of course not. Can we now closet our eyes to them? Again, of course not. Liberals will continue to be liberals. They can be allies but they cannot be the base." "Liberals can be helpful if there is a movement based on the working class. Mass movements can make use of liverals only if they have no illusions about their basically wavering and vacillating nature." [page 23]

"The Communist party's Campaign"

[researcher's note: Mass media.]

"...develop further - a whole system of relationships... in every major city and many small towns with the mass media." [page 27]

"The Deeper Roots of Our Weaknesses"

[researcher's note: For 25 years the operational arm of Communist electoral politics has been in the Liberal wing of the DEMOCRATIC PARTY]

"Our electoral policy has for some 25 years been expressed in the phrase "the three legs of a stool"...";
"... the concept was built on the idea that when the other two legs, namely, the Communist Party and the forces of political independence, get strong enough, then and only then would the stool sit on three legs. But until that day comes the one operating leg would be the liberal wing of the Democratic Party."

"Is that not how it has in fact operated?" [page 37]

[researcher's note: Communist strategies are carried out through the Democratic Party.]

"... thus in practice the only operational electoral leg was the movement around the Liberal Democratic Party candidates."
"... the one operational leg ... That is the policy of supporting liberal Democrats as the main electoral activity."
"If there were ideas about capturing control, of making the Democratic party into a people's party, how could there be a serious struggle to break masses away from that kind of a Democratic Party?" [page 38]

"The 'Lesser Evil' Concept"

"... still see the Democratic party as the only practical vehicle..." [page 40]

"Electoral Role of the communist Party"

[researcher's note: Communists are "duty bound" to use elections and to get into legislatures (parliament) to advance the Communist revolution.]

"... we should popularize what Lenin had to say on the subject:

"... we are duty bound to take part in the elections with the purpose of conducting agitation among all working people, not only among proletarians."
"... we communists are in duty bound to be in this very institution..."
"... it is in the bourgeois parliament, from within it, that we Communist must tell the people... about the relation between classes and parties,..." [pages 41-42]

"The Responsibilities of Communists"

"... the Party cannot make the revolution alone. The concept of united front is absolutely essential." [page 43]

"For a Change in Structure"

"We are a party that works with other forces in united fronts." "... seeking to influence masses by the millions." "We will influence masses while working with other forces in united fronts. But we will also influence masses in our own name." ... "They go hand in hand as parts of the general process." [page 50]

"The Party's Role"

[researcher's note: Work toward the formation of a new political party by building up coalitions of "independent forces"

etc. Meanwhile Communists will continue to work within the Democratic party.]

"... our position on the struggle within the Democratic Party?"

"... deal with it within the framework of the main report to this meeting."

"... we... for some time will be riding two horses at once in the field of political action.." [page 54]

[researcher's note: The new party is to be a labor based party.]

"... for the building of a new party." [page 55]

[researcher's note: Work in Universities.]

"In most cases it could be done right in the university. There would be present at least one YWLLer and one Party member to do nothing else but watch and recruit." [page 60]

Relativism

The dictionary definition: a theory that knowledge is relative to the limited nature of the mind and the conditions of knowing; a view that ethical truths depend on the individuals and groups holding them.

Chairman's note: Relativism began with misconceptions of Albert Einstein's The Special Theory of relativity;, a presentation of physics. The historian Paul Johnson comments: At the beginning of the 1920's the belief began to circulate, for the first time at a popular level, that there were no longer any absolutes; of time and space, of good and evil, of knowledge, above all of value. Mistakenly but perhaps inevitably 'relativity' became confused with relativism; The phrase of the day, "everything is relative"; Johnson notes that Einstein himself was bewildered and distressed by this public misconception.

The public response to relativity became one of the principles formative influences on twentieth century history that helped rip society away from it's base in the faith and morals of Judeo-Christian culture.

Socialism

The dictionary definition of socialism: Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods; a system of a society or group living in which there is no private property; a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and/or controlled by the state; a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.

Chairman's note: There are two apparent differences between communism and socialism - a.) the socialist state is a two or more party rule where communism is a single totalitarian party. B.) socialism builds toward communism by at first heavily controlling, regulating, fining and taxing the means of production before the total government ownership and control can be accomplished.

*John Drakeford, in his book, 'Red Blueprint For the World', said, "The Communists/Socialists never do anything in their own name that they can do in someone else's.".
