Who among us live in glass houses? No-one to my knowledge, or experience. Our flaws sometimes out-weigh the assets we offer to ourselves and others. Sometimes these distractions overwhelm us and define who we really are. We can usually identify these patterns and make adjustments.
So be it, the power of self examination can make us all better people.
Unfortunately this is not what we are seeing in many communities and groups throughout our nation today. The recidivism of negative behavior has become a cancer that will eventually kill the host and resurrect some basic understanding in the relationship between Good vs Evil.
The tables are turning as it has throughout history. Man has had his darkest hours before, only to be repelled by the spirit of good will and common sense. It isn't rocket science to know in your heart what basic premises promote healthy individuals and communities.
The Liberal axiom that anything goes is vanishing before our eyes. Lust, Avarice, Deceit, Dishonesty, Power and the disregard for Human Life has never had a positive effect on the Human Experience.
History is riddled with failure when these characteristic are mainstream.
So take a good look at what has happened to American Culture since the 60's.
Thank You, Harvey Weinstein!
The Women's Movement elevated women to their rightful place in a world dominated by men.
The positive advancement was obvious on every level of American Life. Women as of today hold more than 50% of all jobs, have real economic power and are more highly educated than men.
Unfortunately there have been some unintended consequences as well.
The Sexual Revolution could not have happened without the lessening of resistance from women in general. Sex before marriage, long practiced was shattered by drugs, derailed inhibitions and more aggressive men knowing their chances had been advanced.
Thank You, Harvey Weinstein!
Promiscuity gained momentum and was in full swing throughout the 60's through the present. Sex had become an enormous selling point in all of the Arts. The Film Industry promoted Sex on the Big and Small Screens. Pornography was everywhere streaming on home computers to your children.
We have become Hyper-Sexualized.
The Social Revolution always starts with the Intellectuals in the constant debate over God. Any process of Faith is fair game to disprove. They feel no moral is better.
The spearhead of Sexual Abuse has been Hollywood and its minions. Add to it the drug crazed rockers and Legalize Drug Promoters. They work hand in hand.
To be sure Harvey Weinstein wasn't the first to abuse young people trying to make it big. Let's face it, succumbing to sexual abuse had become acceptable to even the most famous.
Thank You, Havey Weinstein!
Here's My Point:
The affluent Left have always been the largest perpetrators of social dysfunction. In my life alone, I have met hundreds of what appear to be Intelligent people with afflictions on numerous levels. It's almost normal for these people to look the other way when one of their own gets caught.
That's because Integrity is for Everyone Else.
I don't mean to cast a wide brush on those individuals who do lots of good work helping others to achieve their goals. I have been the recipient of that good work. Often abuse in some form comes with help, either verbal, or physical especially if your shooting for the Stars.
It's hard to say no when you are down on your luck and someone is holding your next meal in their hands.
This is a Teachable Moment for ALL of US!
The likes of Harvey Weinstein have been running the show far too long. The list of his VICTIMS are as shocking as the list of his SUPPORTERS. That list has gone right to the Presidency. No-one for decades has outed Weinstein and the Evil he admits. The voices of Liberal Reason are the same voices who support the anything goes mantra of the Left.
The adulation meant more than their souls.
So, take a good look at Harvey Weinstein and the State of our Nation.
They are One and the Same.
Thank You, Harvey Weinstein...
