“There is no place in the Humanist worldview for either immortality or God in the valid meanings of those terms. Humanism contends that instead of the gods creating the cosmos, the cosmos, in the individualized form of human beings giving rein to their imagination, created the gods.”
– Corliss Lamont, “The Philosophy of Humanism” (1982)
It is intellectually impossible to understand the left and their perverse paradigm they have forced inside of every institution of American culture and society, law, politics and history, unless you view it through the lens of Hegelian dialectical materialism. For example, using the above quote the secular humanist (today’s Democrats) believes that God is a myth [thesis/problem] and that man created the gods [antithesis/reaction], therefore we [Democrats] are gods who can do whatever we please in the name of the common good – the U.S. Constitution, the Bible, the original intent of the framers, liberty, due process, morality be damned! [synthesis/solution]
The Democratic Socialist Party, being hell-bent on deconstructing America from within, is the main reason for the present impasse in current congressional talks with President Obama to stop the government shutdown – because dictators never make good negotiators.
This malignant, narcissist worldview is evident in the person and political policies of President Barack Obama and the Democratic Socialist Party. The typical liberal, progressive or postmodernist scoffs at the metaphysical. They mock those people who follow a Judeo-Christian worldview as being myopic, stupid, anti-intellectual and dangerous. History has repeatedly demonstrated that it is the left that are these things and more.
Although the term “secular humanist” wasn’t coined until the early 1850s, these people were philosophically the children that carried the anti-God ideas of the humanist Age of Enlightenment (1600-1800) into the 19th century. This anti-religious religion or evolution atheism staked its future by allying with any philosophy, demigod, leftist intellectual, newspaper editor, politician, judge or skeptic as long as they hated God, capitalism and Christianity.
Like the Loyalists of the colonial period, secular humanists and today’s postmodernists all hated the historical fact that the colonists won the American Revolution (1775-83), thus characterizing America and American exceptionalism as illegitimate and oppressive. Their “Glorious Revolution” was the anti-God French Revolution (1789-99), which burned down, destroyed and co-opted cathedrals, churches and massacred Christians and “enemies of the republic” by the tens of thousands including bishops, priests and nuns. Despite the genocide, upheaval and despair caused by the French Revolution, secular humanists desperately wanted to establish these reactionary, atheist ideas like secularism, humanism, relativism and later evolution, Marxism, socialism, progressivism, postmodernism and fascism into every American institution forever.
America’s collective dementia hit the perfect storm in the 1850s. It was the 1850s that set the stage for the anti-intellectual revolution of the 1860s and ’70s. For example, in 1857 a leftist activist Supreme Court affirmed the legalization of slavery with the Dred Scott v. Sandford case, which just four years later would ignite the Civil War (1861-65) and cost America more than 750,000 lives. Also in 1857, the National Education Association was enacted to control the public schools, thus dictating a militant evolution atheism in education policy over millions of American citizens. The beginning of the 1850s gave us the advent of secular humanism, and the end of the 1850s gave us the scientific mythology of evolution scientism as written in Charles Darwin’s infamous “Origin of Species” (1859).
The tragic effects upon society was that good American citizens have been collectively miseducated because they didn’t have the right information or proper knowledge of history; therefore, they for example beginning in the 1930s unwittingly made a Faustian bargain to sacrifice their God-given natural rights for the unconstitutional promise that the FDR, LBJ, Obama welfare state policies will take care of them from the cradle to the grave through fascist socialism of the God-state. Many religious groups contend that secular humanism – and, by association, secularism – has a religion-like legal aspect: that secularism in government and in the schools establishes state preferences toward a particular religion (namely, the rejection of theism), and a double standard is used in allowing protections to these groups. The U.S. courts, long-dominated by secular humanist jurisprudence, however, have consistently rejected this interpretation.
What I often refer to as the atheist/socialist long march through the institutions has under the fascist policies of President Obama reached its diabolical apotheosis. Dr. James Dobson in his classic book, “Children at Risk,” put it this way, “The humanistic system of values has now become the predominant way of thinking in most of the power centers of society.” Yet the left has always held the trump card – education, including dominating public schools K-12, as well as college, graduate schools, medical schools, business schools, law schools, journalism schools with administrators and faculty membership holding evolution atheist worldviews at the 90-95 percentile, and conservative faculty (if any) are on average below 5 percent.
The original signers of the first Humanist Manifesto of 1933 (notably Dr. John Dewey, the father of public education) declared themselves to be religious humanists. This may surprise many “secular” humanists to realize that your so-called philosophy is just another false cult. Secular humanists sought to replace traditional religions who they believed at the dawn of FDR’s massive expansion of government (e.g., the “New Deal”) failed to meet the needs of their day; therefore, the signers of 1933 declared it an essential mandate to establish a religion that was a dynamic force to meet the needs of the day. Secular humanism was thus given the twin decree of “dethroning God and destroying capitalism,” just like their patron saint Karl Marx advocated in his 1848 book, “The Communist Manifesto.”
“We have lost religion, but we have gained humanism. The ideal now is to liberate and to help emancipate mankind, with the result that man become really an absolute for man,” wrote French existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, yet he was tragically wrong. America cannot survive and prosper by abandoning the U.S. Constitution, natural law and constitutionalism. So we must fight against secular humanism in all of its diabolical guises and stand on the Bible, natural law, truth and the original intent of the constitutional framers, for I truly believe that America is the last best hope of a dying world.
