“Switzerland stands accused not only of disgracefully abandoning its policy of neutrality but also of clandestinely helping the Nazis during World War II. … thirty thousand Jewish refugees were turned back at the Swiss borders for certain death, and while 28,000 were admitted, the Swiss Jewish community was taxed for their upkeep.”
~ Rabbi Yehoshua Berkowitz
Two phony words the political left (including the U.S. Supreme Court) has used to great political advantage over the centuries are “secular” and “neutral.” These two words in effect don’t exist except to obfuscate, to deconstruct and pervert the truth.
For example, for 160 years the U.S. Supreme Court shamefully perverted the Constitution using secular and neutral jurisprudence to promote and defend policies championed by the modern Democratic Socialist Party, including unconstitutional and even fascist doctrines like Loyalist treason during the American Revolution, slavery, Jim Crow racial segregation, Theodore Roosevelt’s trust-busting cases (1901-09) and Woodrow Wilson’s infamous year of 1913, which gave America the 16th Amendment (federal income tax), the Federal Reserve Act and the 17th Amendment, which overturned the direct election of U.S. senators by state legislators and opened it up to statewide elections, shifting money, power and influence from the states to D.C., while essentially making Natural Law and federalism a dead letter.
Judicial secular humanism and phony neutrality by activist judges in large part gave legal legitimacy to such unconstitutional policies as FDR’s New Deal, LBJ’s Great Society, welfare entitlements, abortion, same-sex marriage, amnesty for illegal aliens, Obamacare, etc. If the public weren’t so collectively mis-educated, these unconstitutional policies made legal only through rogue, activist judges promoted by the Democratic Socialist Party would cease to exist just like the moribund Whig Party of the 1830s-50s fell into the dustbin of history and was replaced by the moral authority of the Republican Party (1854) with its twin mandate – ending slavery (making blacks equal to whites) and destroying polygamy (making women equal to men).
President Ronald Reagan said it best: “Fascism was really the basis of the New Deal.” Therefore, it follows then that the political fascist policies cited above could not exist, nor could the Democratic Socialist Party, without its philosophical foundation rooted in the false twin doctrines of secular humanism and evolution atheism.
The myth of the secular
Let’s take the first word, secular (from Latin saecularis, meaning “worldly” or “temporal”). It is the state of being separate from religion, or not being exclusively allied or against any particular religion. Secularism is the contention that religious issues should not be the source of politics and that religion should have no relevance in public life – and certainly should not guide or affect public policy, law or economics. Since the advent of secular humanism in the 1850s, this specious doctrine has been used to great effect by secular humanists, atheists and progressives to deconstruct our First Amendment religious rights while changing America from a nation founded on bedrock Judeo-Christian principles to our present collective dementia as a nation mired in evolution atheism and conspicuous stupidity. The great Christian apologist Francis Schaeffer wrote of this secular paradigm shift, “I believe that pluralistic secularism, in the long run, is a more deadly poison than straightforward persecution.”
The left has deified the secular as a new anti-religion religion, a direct outgrowth of the anti-Christian, anti-church genocide perpetrated in the French Revolution (1789-99). Since the advent of secular humanism, what I call the Progressive Revolution, beginning in the 1850s and 60s, our Judeo-Christian worldview has been systematically purged from our so-called public schools and higher education as the progressive left, like the Trojan horse from antiquity, has hijacked, propagandize and deconstructed societal morality (religion) – and over time, with gradualist tactics like Fabian Socialism and the “Long-March through the Institutions,” the majority of Americans have slavishly embraced such diabolical books and ideas as Marx’s “Communist Manifesto” (1848), Charles Darwin’s “Origin of Species” (1859) and Friedrich Nietzsche’s “God is dead” philosophy. Other perverted ideas found in many other atheistic writers and progressive ideals have collectively beguiled America, Europe and essentially the entire world to, in the 21st century, embrace a militant evolution-atheist worldview rooted in secular humanism.
Swiss Neutrality = Nazi collaboration against the Jews
In recent history, it is the duplicity and treachery of the Swiss, particularly their “neutral” stance during World War II and their secretive and lucrative collaboration with the Nazis against the Jews and the Allied Powers, that is most galling to all people of good faith. We now know through recently released documents unearthed in archives in Switzerland, Germany, the old Soviet Union and other countries throughout Europe that the so-called “neutral” Swiss were anything but neutral and worked hand-in-glove with the Nazis to help them literally finance and profit from World War II and the Holocaust against the Jews.
The Swiss have profited to this day in the hundreds of billions in francs from what the Germans called blutgeld (blood money) stolen from the Jews by the Nazis, including gold pulled from the teeth of Jews at extermination camps, melted down by the Nazis and secretly shipped to banks throughout Switzerland to help finance the war – hidden by vile secrecy banking laws that have for centuries allowed this duplicitous nation to function unmolested outside of national and international business, economic and moral norms, allowing the world’s tyrants to hide their ill-gotten gain in protected Swiss bank accounts to this day.
The latest atrocity against the Jews were hundreds of recently recovered paintings Joseph Goebbels sold in the 1930s and ’40s to Hildebrand Gurlitt, a Swiss art dealer for only 4,000 francs. These paintings stolen from the Jews worth tens of millions today are essentially blood money against the Jews – ill-gotten gain that belongs to the Jewish people and to their heirs. Germany sat on this information for over a year after they confiscated the paintings from the flat of the art dealer’s son, until the German government could no longer hide its shameful conspiracy to obstruct justice.
Dante could have been speaking to this duplicitous generation when he wrote, “The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.”
