Does Anybody Else Think America's "Culture Wars" Are Strangely Upside Down, Riddled With Logical Inconsistencies And Likely The Product Of Social-Engineering?


Recommended Posts

In America you have Christian-Conservatives (Republicans) who believe that:

 

- Aborting a child is murder ("Thou Shall Not Kill")

- Killing foreigners half a world away through war, including children - Iraq springs to mind - is somehow "not murder"

- Hardcore Wallstreet Robber Baron Capitalism is "good" - even though it isn't compatible with Christ's/Moses's teachings at all ("Thou Shall Not Lie", "Thou Shallt Not Steal", "Do unto others as....")

- Socialism or even Socialism-Light - just having some basic free healthcare and some safety nets for the truly weak/unemployed in society - is "an abomination", even though this is completely at odds with Christ/The Bible as well

- Trade Unions are satanic/bad/Communism, even though Christianity/The Bible itself preaches that People are not "slave workers"

- Climate Change cannot be happening because Humans - not even 8 Billion of them doing their worst daily - could possibly upset Earth's ecosystem in any way

- God created man. Charles Darwin was a charlatan.

- Showing gun violence in movies is perfectly OK. Showing an exposed female breast on the other hand would corrupt society.

 

Then we have the Left-Liberals (Democrats) in America who believe that:

 

- People should have as many rights as possible, but that not being aborted as a fetus is not one of them

- Hollywood movies are correct to portray Business Corporations as evil, and look out for our rights, even though Hollywood Studios themselves are owned by HUGE Corporations who want to make as much PROFIT as possible

- People should not die in wars, but you should be able to abort them as long as they haven't been born yet (up to the 9th month of pregnancy in New York for example)

- People should have as many rights as possible, but free speech/free opinioning on certain issues, like LGBTQ visibility in the media or men and women being biologically distinct genders isn't one of them. People like that need to "shut up"

- Men are somehow "baaaad" all of a sudden and women somehow "the highest goood"

- Ridiculing another person's faith in God/Religion and any "spiritual outlook on life" that comes from it is a good thing to do

- There needs to be a man-on-man or woman-on-women love scene in every TV show and Computer Game being produced now, as well as a sympathetic Chinese character

- Human rights is an important issue, but its okay to be a hipster who buys Made-In-China Apple products from the local Apple store

- There is no God, and Christ/Moses/Noah/David never existed. Humans evolved from monkeys and have a brain, but not a soul.

- The Ten Commandments are "no good", even though the Bible itself is quite compatible with Left-thinking in certain ways ("Love Thy Neighbor")

- Scientists know everything, especially when they are on TV explaining something or look like Albert Einstein

 

 

 

Does anybody else find the 50 - 50 Conservative-Liberal split that runs right through American society somewhat odd?

I notice that as the insanity grows ... those that think they are leftwing are actually presenting a rightwing position and viceversa ... and the logic and reasoning of their arguments is backwards and they end up fighting for things that they don't want or don't understand.

But ... human beings are insane.  They always do this.

I believe that the "middle ground" between Hard-Left and Hard-Right BINARY stances is being deliberately NUKED.

 

For example - the middle ground between "Humans Evolved" and "God Created Humans" DOES exist.

 

You can argue that VARIOUS BIOLOGICAL SPECIES WERE ALREADY EVOLVING NATURALLY ON EARTH, AND GOD CLEVERLY MESSED WITH THE DNA OF ONE OF THOSE SPECIES, LEADING TO HUMANS EMERGING OVER MILLIONS OF YEARS THROUGH "DIVINELY GUIDED EVOLUTION".

 

In other words, Evolution as such DOES happen, but DIVINE INTERVENTION can NUDGE IT IN A NEW DIRECTION by MESSING WITH A FEW DNA SEQUENCES.
