We in the West are no longer threatened by monarchism but by the totalitarian impulse of ever-expanding bureaucratic institutions and mindsets. These mindsets find their home in the vast secular bureaucracies of Brussels, Geneva, the UN, and, in U.S. politics, our ever-expanding federal and state power here at home. Western Civilization is threatened also by the globalist worldview that believes an informed elite can manage a more peaceful world where both problems and solutions are shared among all nations. The individual is disparaged as lacking in power and usefulness and as a fundamentally selfish entity who can never understand the utilitarian principle of the greatest good of the greatest number.
Thus, even the mass immigration of Muslim peoples from the Middle East, North Africa, and Africa to Europe or the USA — can be perceived as a type of globalist response to the tensions, upheavals, and dictatorial mode of governments that are typical of those regions. The violent internal tribalism and intolerance of opposing viewpoints characteristic of third world hellholes is always at or close to the boiling point in Muslim countries. The globalists of the West perceive this as a mindset that can be changed by having experience of liberal democratic societies. Allowing the migration is like providing a pressure valve release where the oppressed, impoverished people of those beleaguered countries can escape and find refuge instead of having to engage in endless turmoil in order to justify themselves and find some meager rations.
The globalists believe that the Muslim migrant anger and aggression will become diluted, and their sense of individual competency and worth will increase. At the same time, the traditional citizenry will have an increase in their labor force since their birthrates are declining, will have the satisfaction of helping those less well off than themselves, and, by using immigration as an escape valve from endless wars and power struggles in the Islamic world are lessening the poverty and unhappiness that are underlying causes of those wars and power struggles. Peace and a renewed humanity is the globalist vision.
It’s a spider and fly strategy whereby the alien culture is drawn into its opposing culture, and is eventually overcome by the Western mindset of respect for others, caring about the individual, political participation by all persons who wish to participate, and marked by a diversity of habits, lifestyles, beliefs, and avenues for self-expression and productivity. It conceives of itself as an unassuming Western Civilization that does not have to insist on its merits in the face of those who disagree or are offended by its customs and mores. It is a vision that believes it will subdue the opposition by dint of its respect for others and their eventual economic successes.
The vast bureaucratic apparatus of the West now is encouraging and implementing painful migrations as part of the re-education process of the Western bourgeoisie who still cannot accept collectivism or global interdependence as a valid, indeed superior, alternative to the idea of national identity and the superiority of Western Civilization. Yet, we must continue to resist and overcome the global vision which is both fascistic and communistic.
President Donald Trump made it very clear in his amazing speech to the Polish people in June of 2017. Trump said, “Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield — it begins with our minds, our wills, and our souls…. We pursue innovation. We celebrate our ancient heroes, embrace our timeless traditions and customs, and always seek to explore and discover brand-new frontiers. We reward brilliance. We strive for excellence, and cherish inspiring works of art that honor God. We treasure the rule of law and protect the right to free speech and free expression…. And we debate everything. We challenge everything. We seek to know everything so that we can better know ourselves. And above all, we value the dignity of every human life, protect the rights of every person, and share the hope of every soul to live in freedom. That is who we are. Those are the priceless ties that bind us together as nations, as allies, and as a civilization.”
Bringing in migrant people en masse who reject the divinity and saving power of Jesus Christ is intrinsically opposed to peace on earth and the well-being of the different cultures and faiths living on the planet. No work(s) of mankind can save the planet Earth from the ravages of sin and death. No tolerance, no sharing of wealth, no cumbaya spirit of togetherness, no welcome signs, no hand holding, no ecumenical services or agreements signed in luxurious surroundings (or any surroundings), no social welfare payments or free housing, and no multilateral trade agreements can solve the problems of our sinful, fractured world.
Only the person of Christ worshipped and acknowledged as Lord of Life can bring individuals and nations to a place of hope, prosperity, peace, and satisfaction. “Contentment with godliness is great gain.” (1 Timothy 1: 6) Here, “godliness” does not mean the god-centeredness of any religious belief system. It means only Christ-centered religion, and this writer would extend that further to what are known as the Five Solas: Sola Christus (By Christ Alone), Sola Scriptura (By Scripture Alone), Sola Gratia (By Grace Alone), Sola Fides (By Faith Alone), and Soli Deo Gloria (For the Glory of God Alone). Christian faith lived under these anchoring solas is, this writer totally believes, the reason why Western Civilization (and America as the leading nation of Western Civilization) has survived and is worth saving. Western Civilization portrayed by any other standard whether it be “leadership from behind,” updated fascism, or updated communism is doomed to instability and disintegration.
It is true that if one has measles or mumps as a child, then one is immune for life. But, typically, the introduction of viruses, bacteria, or cancerous cells into the body weakens the body. Health is adversely affected in the short term and/or in the long term. Similarly, the health of Western Civilization cannot be separated from commitment to and love of Christ and the Holy Trinity of which He is the Second Person. “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”(John 14:6). Any civilization that welcomes the enemies of Christ can expect negative outcomes such as those found in the Book of Revelation and known as the Seven Seal Judgments, the Seven Trumpet Judgments, and the Seven Bowl Judgments. The God of the Old and New Testaments is God, and His providential will is keeping Western Civilization going. The globalist attempts to engineer a so-called better future for the sovereign countries of the West and the world, working independent of Almighty God and thus denying Him, are doomed to failure.
