Of all of the commandments, perhaps “thou shalt not covet” is the most ignored one. In America and all over Europe, people want things that do not belong to them, hence the socialist/marxist/communist movement. Perhaps God knowing the future, He knew that those that disobeyed this important commandment will be the undoing of the world economy some day. It is a European idea to take from the wealthy and give it indirectly to the ones Vladimir Lenin called “useful idiots”, but it has trickled here in the United States to a point of prevalence.
Before I delve too deeply in that direction, I will get to another form of covetousness here in America. America has been the greatest violater of a subsidiary of covetousness called materialism. We are the most materialistic country in the world. We want the big house. The coolest car. The hippest set of gadgets. Clothes as far as the eye could see. Result? Debt and the need to be bailed out of trouble. People don’t think they can lose their job and be swamped by their debt, or too selfish to care. It’s one thing if you can afford these things. It’s a different thing entirely if you can’t, even if you think you can. People line up to pay hundreds for the newest iPhone to replace the iPhone they just bought months ago. Too many people get into such debt that when they do unfortunately lose their jobs, the taxpayer gets the bill. Too many of them don’t care if the taxpayer bails them out because “hey, I pay taxes, too”. This country is in financial trouble at every front, but I guess this is the way it’s supposed to be now.
Karl Marx used the covetousness of people to get behind his movement to rob Peter to supposedly pay Paul. The covetousness of the people in the world today has blinded them to a point where they ignore all of the prior marxist revolutions where the unions and other have nots were fooled time and time again. After the useful idiots did the dirty work for the elite revolutionaries and then voluntarily disarmed themselves, the true intention of marxism was revealed. The haves played ball with the elite revolutionaries, not the have nots. Most of the money was centralized and the people under them only got crumbs. A social pyramid scheme if there ever was one. Marxism couldn’t be done in America many years ago because there was a great difference between the people in Europe and America. The immigrants from Europe fled to America to get out of the noose of overbearing regimes and didn’t want to be taken care of. They saw not only freedom in America, but opportunity. Through centuries of kings and paupers in Europe, having the mindset of having an authoritarian to take care of the populace kept most in Europe. Marx knew that all too well as did the socialist elites in Europe. Those that didn’t want that not only went to America, but became America.
The elites in America over the years have done a good job of holding the European mindset in high regard while belittling the American way in nearly every aspect of our culture. Condition the populace to accept or want socialism, then destroy the capitalist system so the people need socialism. Far too many in America forget that this country was the one people found refuge and opportunity in. Not Europe. People fled Europe to come here. People have not fled here to go to Europe, even now. If it’s so bad here in America, the easy solution for those elitist people is to leave. They haven’t perhaps to fulfill the very Word they deny.
America will fall and so will the world. Once that happens, sovereignty and opportunity will be a shadowy history. Out of the ashes of the collapsed world economy will arise the New World Order. It will purportedly be a way to have global economic justice at the expense of ideas that made one country superior to the others. America is seen as the great oppressors of the world because its success causes those that don’t have it to covet them. Nevermind it was the adoption of the European philosophy of socialism that kept them in their mire. America had and the rest had not. The sinister idea of bringing America down was a European idea. It was then adopted by elitist Americans intent on getting Paul behind the idea of robbing Peter to use our covetousness against us. This way America will one day collapse so something new can take its place. The same mantra of social justice will be spewed while it will only bring even injustice. The lie of spreading the wealth is believed in again while again most of the money taken will go to the central authority figure, or government. The question you should all be asking is who will be the new authority figures where most of the money will go to? It hasn’t unfolded completely yet, but you’d have to be blind not to see the path ahead. Hear ye! Hear ye! Here comes the riders of the black horse and white horse!
