Direction in an Age of Confusion
20 Years of Prophecy Fulfilled
Part III Quality of Life
Chapter 4 (A)
Family & Community
Communities across America, especially rural and country farmland communities have suddenly been awakened by the alarms that have sounded constantly in suburban and urban areas for the last two decades.
Unlike the rooster crows of early dawn, or the sounds of the postman’s truck stopping at your mailbox, the nightly news across the nation from ‘those places’ is now at your front door.
All over America, in town hall meetings, school board auditoriums, fire halls, churches, synagogues and temples, as well as Main Street USA, are experiencing the ‘violence’.
Amid all the ‘normalization, indoctrination, and de-genderization’ the very purpose of our Bill of Rights, is ‘nominalized, polarized, and paralyzed’.
It didn’t happen overnight. Critical events, some outlined in previous blogs, have been happening for over twenty years.
The Bill of Rights
The first 10 amendments to the Constitution make up the Bill of Rights. James Madison wrote the amendments, which list specific prohibitions on governmental power, in response to calls from several states for greater constitutional protection for individual liberties.
For example, the Founders saw the ability to speak and worship freely as a natural right protected by the First Amendment. Congress is prohibited from making laws establishing religion or abridging freedom of speech.
The Fourth Amendment safeguards citizens’ right to be free from unreasonable government intrusion in their homes through the requirement of a warrant.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Change is often necessary, changing the Amendment I, by introducing behaviors and ideas that are illegal, using ‘precedents and super precedents’ interpreting the moral compass of a few people into the new ‘compass’ direction is a lot about violation.
Suddenly, the free exercise of religion is the removal of ‘Merry Christmas’ and ‘Happy Hannakuh’ to ‘Happy Holidays’ because the terms these terms violate the comfort zone of others. Removal of ‘Cross’ or ‘Star of David’ or Muslim, on any public property, violates the rights of others. There are many symbols of ‘religion’ that are still allowed and even promoted in the very same kind of places where the others have been arbitrarily removed.
Freedom of the Press allows you to write and publish most anything you want, when you want, and not necessarily the ‘proof’ to back it up, often provided spoken or documents by an anonymous protected sources. An excellent example of ‘prophetic and timely warning’ about the press ‘normalization from right to wrong’ is shown in the tv series show “Highway to Heaven” Season 5, Episode 7, 1988 ‘ THE SOURCE”, starring Michael Landon (also Executive Producer & Director) written by Elaine Newman and Ed Burnham. This is one of the most compelling episodes and eerily reflects our society in October 2020. You can see this on Netflix, and I recommend watching the entire series with your children, as it is truly a ‘family show’.
Freedom of speech has become the catch-phrase of those who slander and accuse innocent people of ‘hate and prejudice’ simply because another person disagrees with their political, religious, or ethical views, no action, just philosophy. Is it freedom of speech or press when a ‘liberal’ message is on all social media, but when ‘conservative’ message are posted, blocked or taken down’ equal rights under the law?
Freedom of the right to ‘peacefully’ assemble, has been abridged to burn, riot, murder, and add freedom of speech to the stew of discontent, while governors, mayors, and other leadership, protect their rights to ‘assemble’ without interruption for over 100 days?
It was Yuri Bezmenov, a KGB operative who defected from the Soviet Union, warned us about the silent war against America’s governing system, way of life, by Marxist-Leninist propaganda, in 4- Easy Steps, demoralization, (Us against Us), destabilization (2-5 years), Stage 3 crisis (up to 6 weeks), and the final stage is… normalization.
This isn’t just about America anymore-- it’s a global political pandemic.
These are the precedents (examples, models, patterns, instances, guides, standards, practices) and super precedents, that allow our Bill of Rights (Human Rights, Civil Rights, Constitutional Rights, Civil Liberties), to be revised without actual Congressional voting (or voter representation) to undermine the lives of the majority to accommodate the few. Welcome to the ‘new normal zone’.
One example that especially caught my eye in July of 2009, posted publicly on twitter-- reference:
“Hey, is it considered molestation if the child makes the first move? I’m gon’na need a quick answer on this.”
“The angry @ tweets from my hammer toed followers opened my eyes. ‘Pediphobe’ shaming hurts us all. I am a PROUD pedophile!”
Remember that my Direction in an Age of Confusion syllabus subjects and content began in 1998…

Now, it is time to decide your answers to these questions:
What was your life like twenty years ago? Ten years ago? Five?
Is your life better or worse? Quality of life, peace, stability, health, in what ways….
Is society and community around you is as a whole, better or worse?
If your life and the lives of your children or family, in the future is to be determined by your decisions and actions of ‘today’, --what are you going to change? Or do?
Because.. it doesn’t have to be this way…
We can get back to the ‘Rights’ Basics….
