    Buried in a rather lengthy essay explaining why 'birthers' are on the wrong track looking for or demanding the birth certificate, Jerome Corsi, PhD, hit on a theme that a lot of us have been looking at and thinking about recently.

    Basically it is summarized in these paragraphs:

    So without assuming my personal endosement of either Front Page Magazine or Dr. Corsi, you can assume that what he is saying here is resonating with a lot of people, including me.

    Do you think he is right? Is there an academic assault on American culture as we have known it? And an attempt to tear it down so that Hegelian-Marxism can replace it?

    Summation of Hegelian-Marxism:
    "...the State 'has the supreme right against the individual, whose supreme duty is to be a member of the State... for the right of the world spirit is above all special privileges.'" Attributed to Georg Hegel.

    No questions about it... just look what this administration is attempting to do under the guise of fairness and responsibility.

    I had to read up to put my finger on it, but that's what really REALLY bugged me in the context of the President's recent speech. His "we are all responsible for each other" line summed up Hegelian-Marxism in a nutshell.

    It sounds so noble, compassionate, and insightful. And it is oh so dangerous.

    No, I don't.
    And I think anyone who does, needs to take the foil hat off.

    Guess it didn't work. Why are you scared?

    What you don't realize is that the dumbing down of society we've seen.. serves those already in power.

    So.. Jesus was a Marxist?

    I mean, we already know the earliest Christians abolished private property and held everything in common.

    Clearly, Christianity is a tool of fringe Jews (recall Jesus story) designed to to undermine society and push a communist goal.

    Am I supposed to take you seriously here? Can you point out the quotation in the Bible that has Jesus saying "We are all responsible for each other?" You honestly think he wasn't pretty strong on a concept that we are all acccountable for our own thoughts and actions?

    Having no job, wandering around crashing with strangers and living off handouts is being responsible for yourself?

    He certainly didn't suggest it was anybody's obligation or responsibility to give him anything, but he was properly grateful when offers were extended. But how about we set that non sequitur and red herring aside and focus on the OP.

    Do you honestly believe there is no culture war going on and no general effort to despise the rich, to look at capitalism as more evil than not, to excuse the poor and criminal as the inevitable result of the excess of others, to look to an authoritarian government as the best way to break destructive cycles? (All concepts within Hegelian-Marxism.)

    This is from the bible:
    ""If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?" (1 John 3:17)

    " "When you have finished setting aside the tenth of all your produce in the third year, the year of the tithe, you shall give it to the Levite, the alien, the fatherless and the widow, so that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied" - (Duet 26:12)
