Death by a Thousand Cuts: the Slow Erasure of Our Liberties

Big Sister Is Watching
In the news this morning:  Louis Farrakhan, of the Nation of Islam (a Black Muslim organization), said it is the American flag that needs to be taken down:
“I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag.  Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag.”
In light of the latest hysterical attack on Southern heritage, more people are waking up.  It is not just Southern heritage that is dying the death of a thousand cuts, but American heritage.  America, as we know it, is being slowly replaced with something quite different than what the Founders intended.

At the bottom of it all is the left's desire to eradicate patriotism and cause shame for one's ancestors, to doubt the ultimate goodness of America.  If this can be accomplished, the populace will be less psychologically resistant to extreme political change -- namely, to instill a socialist/fascist government, one with absolute control over every facet of our lives, including what we believe, who and what we respect and revere.  By erasing or rewriting our past, they change our idea of who we were, are or should be.  He who controls the past, controls the future.  

Our past is being erased and our heroes replaced with a fanatical belief in the goodness and power of the state.   Conformity in thought, tradition, values, culture, language (i.e., what words and terms are allowed in public expression) will be enforced through absolute control of the media.  Public pressure and social ostracism will be applied to those who refuse to conform. Southerners and other Americans are being broken down psychologically so they can be rebuilt, much as soldiers are in boot camp.  We will all be soldiers in the new Army of the State.
