One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life (Psalm 27:4)                 Bayith Ministries

Political Correctness
Cultural Marxism's "Long March Through The Institutions" of Western Civilisation

"I saw the revolutionary destruction of Society as the one and only solution.
A worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values
and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries"

[George Lukacs, The Frankfurt School]

"We will make the West so corrupt that it stinks"
[Willi Munzenberg, The Frankfurt School]

The Frankfurt School recommended:
"Encouraging the breakdown of the family"

To further their aims they would:
"attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother,
and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children"

When Will They realise That Some Families Don't Actually Want Childcare?  (12 September 2019)

"80% of families are not using any form of external financial childcare assistance. So comes the latest alarm, in a press release along with helpful advice to families as to how they can rectify this, from 'Woke Research Inc' otherwise known as Yoopies, an online 'home-care' platform ... On the possibility that some families of infants are not claiming this conditional benefit because they prefer to look after their children themselves, woke research shows no curiosity. It seems unable to imagine that despite all those childcare entitlements to encourage mums with babes back to work early, there are still some who'd rather be harder up and at home for their family..."

Homosexuality and the Family  (02 August 2017)

"The biblical view of homosexual acts will be viewed by many today as draconian, intolerant and unthinkable. Indeed, as Jonathan Burnside points out regarding present sensibilities, the biblical references to sodomy 'will find themselves labeled as "texts of terror"', and certainly in the West, these parts of the Bible would be considered 'hate speech' by human rights commissions..."

Seven Tricks to Staying Consistent on Discipline  (Updated March 2017)

"There is something the discipline experts all agree on: Consistency is the key. ... How can you be more consistent? Try these tips:..."

Those Poor Delicate Dandelions  (14 November 2016)

"Back in 2007 Diana West wrote an important volume entitled The Death of the Grownup. In it she lamented the fact that an entire generation of adults are stuck in adolescence. They have refused to grow up, to take personal responsibility for their lives, and they expect the state to look after them from cradle to grave. This is the entitlement generation gone ballistic..."

Small Plants and Little Caterpillars  (16 January 2016)

"It has been fashionable for some decades now, particularly amongst those who like to think of themselves as experts in child-rearing and/or politically progressive, to argue for child-centred parenting.  They mean by this that the child's 'wishes and feelings' must be at the forefront of parenting..."

Unelected 'Children's Commissioners' Tell UK to Ban Smacking  (01 July 2015)

"Britain must completely ban parents from smacking their children, a report submitted to the UN has demanded. The UK's four children's commissioners call for the 'immediate' repeal of all laws permitting parents to physically chastise their children and tell the government to re-educate parents who persist [in] smacking in 'non-violent forms of child rearing and behaviour management'..."

Day Care, Feminism, and the Wellbeing of Children  (17 September 2014)

"Extended periods of day care for young children are not in their best interests. Parents might benefit, but children seldom do. But before I go any further, let me get the objections out of the way first. Some folks seem to have little choice but to use day care for their children..."

Today's Children Have Much More to Fear Than a Belt From Dad, Cilla  (27 October 2013)

"We live in a censored society, made all the worse because we gag our own mouths..."

Since When Was Saving Your Children A 'Lifestyle Choice'?  (11 August 2013)

"There's something a little jaunty about the expression 'lifestyle choice'. And maybe in the super-rich world of our Chancellor of the Exchequer, this is how full-time motherhood is regarded. But actually quite a lot of couples view it as a stern duty. They see the terrifying world of bad schools, bullying, drugs, internet filth and peer-pressure to do the wrong thing, which now menaces children, and they resolve to make their homes a fortress against this..."

Created For Him?  (14 June 2013)

"We bring to [our] marriage ... many years of negative conditioning. Girls spend years watching their Moms dishonor Dad. The TV, movies, and modern culture are conditioning the next generation of girls to greater dishonor..."

Marriage Is God's Finishing School  (14 June 2013)

"All marriages begin with two imperfect people. ... Men and women are created differently but complementary. Each has something (and is something) the other needs to make them complete. Each is designed to yield to the nature of the other in order to become whole..." 

We Fuss Over Mothers... Then Tell Them to Dump Their Children in Baby Farms and Go Back to Work  (17 March 2013)

"The more fuss we make about mothers, ... the less we seem to want them to bring up their own children. The view seems to be that it's just about all right for women to give birth, but after that, can we please separate them from their young as soon as possible..."

Fractured Families and Social Engineering  (01 January 2013)

"We live in an age of ever escalating rights' claims, but with ever decreasing emphasis on responsibility and obligation. Every day new claims to rights are being heard, often just pulled out of the hat. And each new day sees less and less talk of duty and of responsibility..."

Six Ways Parents Destroy Their Children Without Trying  (14 December 2012)

"Get so busy providing for them that you don't have time for them  /  Set a bad example  /  Expressing displeasure regularly  /  Not enforcing boundaries  /  Leaving them to choose their friends  /  Not giving them any responsibility or holding them accountable"

Broken Families, Lonely Britain  (05 November 2012)

"According to the ONS, almost 2.5 million people aged between 45 and 64 have their own home but no spouse, partner or children to live with them. Since the mid-Nineties, their number has grown by more than 50 per cent. This disturbing trend was always entirely predictable as one of the baleful effects of family breakdown. For the age-group that is so over-represented in these dismal figures is the post-war 'baby boomer' generation - those who grew up in the Swinging Sixties and proceeded to throw over the traditional family..."

An Open Letter to Maria Miller MP, Minister for Women and Equalities  (21 September 2012)

"You will be aware that last week the Deputy prime Minister made known his real attitude toward those ... who oppose the Government's plans to redefine marriage. We are 'bigots', he was due to say, until it became apparent that it's rather a disdainful, intolerant and illiberal, not to say 'bigoted' attitude for any politician to hold. Many of us who believe in traditional marriage ... do so for honourable and sincere reasons..."

Telling the Truth About Destroying Marriage and Family  (27 June 2012)

"The radical left has never hidden its hatred of such bourgeois institutions as marriage, family and church. And they are much more open in their stated aims to see such things destroyed. No beating around the bush by using weasel words like 'tolerance' and 'acceptance'..."

Children Do Better With Mother and Father  (12 June 2012)

"What incredibly bizarre times we line in, to even have to state such an overwhelmingly obvious truth. I might as well have penned an article with the title, 'People Do Better Eating' or 'Children Fare Best When They Breathe'. Of course children need a mother and father, and of course anything less than that will be less ideal..."

Cultural Disintegration and Sexual Suicide  (07 May 2012)

"Way back in 1956 Harvard sociologist Pitirim Sorokin wrote an important volume called The American Sex Revolution. In it the noted academic warned of the direction the US was taking as it cast off all moral restraint, and elevated all things sexual to an idolatrous level. ... Consider three recent news items highlighting the sexual suicide taking place all around us. We all suffer because of this, but especially our children. Indeed, when almost all of society is conducting a sexual war against our kids, it makes the job of any parent very difficult indeed..."

Witnessing Social Suicide  (04 May 2012)

"It is not very often that we find ourselves witnessing - and even taking part in - a pivotal turning point in a civilisation. Only rarely in human history are people allowed to take part in, or at least observe, transformations and revolutions which are far-reaching and earth shattering. We in the West are now living through this very thing..."

So Minister, When Did Porn Users' Civil Liberties Trump the Protection of Children?  (23 April 2012)

"As any responsible parent knows, the internet has introduced a vile new hazard into the upbringing of children. ... In a cross-party report published last week, MPs warned that a whole generation of children was growing up with their minds affected by images of depravity from which most adults would avert their gaze. ... What a wholesale corruption of children has suddenly overtaken us - and with what untold consequences..."

Spoilt Little Buddhas! Doting Parents Turn Out Children Who Just Can't Behave  (05 April 2012)

"Parents are raising a generation of 'little Buddhas' who never lift a finger around the house, a teachers' leader declared yesterday. Children are growing up constantly demanding their own way because they are 'waited on hand and foot' by over-indulgent parents..."

The UN's War Against Our Children  (31 March 2012)

It's Time to Expel the 'Experts' From Family Life  (12 September 2011)

"In modern times, there has been something of a revolt against traditional authority. As a result of this, all forms of authority are increasingly being called into question. After all, if the authority of the king and the priest and the politician can be interrogated, why not call into question the authority of pater familias, too?..."

Top Ten Boneheaded Parenting Tips From the Left  (05 September 2010)

"It began in the 1960s. Anything that resembled the values of 'the greatest generation' was deemed foul and tainted. It took only a couple generations of parenting advice, heavy-laden with leftist social politics and psychology to come up with this mess..."

Mothers Who Fall Short - By Design  (22 July 2010)

"It is supremely ironic that over the past 40 years or so, women have stepped forward and claimed authority in the military, education, religious institutions, corporations, politics and the professions, and have been persuaded to all but completely abdicate their authority over their children..."

To Tell a Child "You Can Be Anything You Want to Be" is Irresponsible  (15 July 2010)

"A grandmother recently told me that her son and daughter-in-law have told her only grandchild, an 8-year-old, that he can be anything he wants in life. She was incensed..."

Family 'Democracy' Can Turn to Tyranny  (08 July 2010)

"My wife, Willie, and I began our family in 1969. ... It was 'hip' to believe such things as the democratic family, and so, being super-hip, Willie and I charged down the road to democracy with our first. We were going to prove that Family Utopia was within grasp..."

"Because I Said So" Signals Strong Parental Leadership  (30 June 2010)

"The 1960s were marked by several assassinations, the war in Vietnam, recreational drugs, ersatz peace and love, and a plague, still with us, of general stupidity when it came to children..."

It's Time For Parents to Get Their Heads Out of the '60s  (24 June 2010)

"I don't know about you, but I'm ready for the 1960s to be over and done with. That destructive decade has ruled [Western] parenting for 40 years and pretty well ruined it in the process. Before the '60s, parents sought child rearing advice from their parents. Since then, parents have sought advice from a professional class..."

The Spoilt Generation: Parents Who Fail to Exert Authority Breed Youngsters With No Respect For Anyone  (14 September 2009)

"A growing lack of adult authority has bred a 'spoilt generation' of children who believe grown-ups must earn their respect, ... The rise of the 'little emperor' spans the class divide and is fuelling ills from childhood obesity to teenage pregnancy, ... Attempts to 'empower' children and a lack of discipline in the classroom have also fostered rising levels of violence, at home, at school and in the street..."

Holy Matrimony  (02 June 2009)

"The marriage of one man to one woman is the oldest institution on earth, predating all religion and government, inaugurated in the Garden of Eden by the Creator himself. ... The traditional view of marriage that has come down to us from antiquity is shared by peoples of every culture and language, and reflects quite well the Biblical definition of marriage as being only between a man and a woman. History, likewise, reveals that all governments and religions have assumed that marriage is an unalienable human mandate from God, thus pre-existing government, and that is therefore beyond its jurisdiction..."

Patricide vs Patriarchy  (24 January 2001)

"Patricide is the act of killing our fathers. It can take many forms. Dishonor can be a form of patricide. To dishonor a father is to strike at one of the defining relationships in the universe - that of the Father and the Son. Revisionist history is a form of patricide. When historians attack the spiritual forefathers of a nation, or when they pervert the legacies of the past, they engage in a form of cultural patricide. But whether the act of patricide takes the form of physical murder, a dishonoring rejection of authority, or historical revisionism, the result is always the same - to cut off the future from the past and to ensure the destruction of the individual and the community..."

Male Passivity: The Root of All Evil  (1999)

"The well being of the whole creation rests on the proper functioning of the various authority arrangements that exist. ... The order that exists in the Godhead from all eternity is the model for the order that the Creator has built into His creation. When this order is violated, chaos and death result..."

How Dr. Spock is Destroying America  (No Date)

"Spock's child rearing book Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care, first published in 1946, sold 750,000 copies the first year, has since sold over 50 million copies, and is sixth in sales only to the Bible. Life magazine certified the depth of his influence, naming Spock among the 100 most important people of the twentieth century. Within a decade after Spock's first book, a perceptible change began to develop in American families..."

Defensive Parenting  (No Date)

"In this current generation I see too many people, young and old alike, who lack emotional resilience. When they were young, their parents obviously came to the rescue whenever another child upset them, and they defended them from anyone in authority who tried to hold them accountable for their behavior. It should be of no surprise that indulgent, hyper-defensive parenting is at the root of politically correct speech..."

Children  (No Date)

"Children always push the boundaries of behaviour until some adult stops them. ... How often have you heard a child screaming in the supermarket because it wants some sweets? A short, sharp slap was all that was needed the first time they did this and refused to stop when asked. Lesson learnt - path for future good behaviour established. Unfortunately the parent has probably been intimidated by some PC idiot into thinking she shouldn't 'hit' her child. So what does the parent do? She buys the sweets and the child learns that it can get what it wants by screaming and being disobedient. Lesson learnt - path for future bad behaviour established..."

Communism and the Family  (1920)

"The circumstances that held the family together no longer exist.  The family is ceasing to be necessary either to its members or to the nation as a whole.  The old family structure is now merely a hindrance.  What used to make the old family so strong?  First, because the husband and father was the family's breadwinner; secondly, because the family economy was necessary to all its members; and thirdly, because children were brought up by their parents. What is left of this former type of family?..."

Identity Politics

Extracts from the article: The Origin of 'Identity Politics' & 'Political Correctness'

"The central 'theory' [of 'identity politics'] was a development of the anti-family rhetoric of nineteenth century socialists taken up and further radicalised by Marx and particularly Engels to conceptualise the family as an aberration resulting, it was imagined, from 'capitalism' somehow 'repressing' 'the workers', to the extent that supposedly they became psychologically dysfunctional. Marxism per se was supplanted by a theory of culturally based personal relations, popularised later most notably by Marcuse amongst many others"

"In the transition to 'identity politics', the quintessential form of 'oppression' (sic) in Marxian imagination changed with the family replacing the workplace as the putative key locus of conflict; transferring from 'the boss' lording it over 'the worker' to the man 'dominating' the woman"

"The aim was to eliminate what were seen as the mere 'roles' of the mother and father, so that, it was envisaged, all distinction between masculinity and femininity would disappear, taking with it the 'patriarchy' (sic) supposedly the foundation of 'capitalism'. This 'theory' re the family lacked even internal consistency. With the family mistakenly considered a product of 'capitalism' ... then merely removing the family hardly thereby removes 'capitalism', which by the rationale of the 'theory' surely would manifest in other ways to either 'oppress' or somehow 'fool' 'the workers'"

"As the head of the family, the man (husband/father) was held to be the incarnation of 'oppression' from which the woman (wife/mother) needed to be 'liberated'. So it was that 'the workers' as formerly considered 'the agents of change' and the group destined to be 'liberated', were replaced in Marxian imagination by women, heralding the 'feminist Marxism' we see today"

The Frankfurt School

"The Frankfurt School believed that as long as an individual had the belief - or even the hope of belief - that his divine gift of reason could solve the problems facing society, then that society would never reach the state of hopelessness and alienation that they considered necessary to provoke socialist revolution.

Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the 'oppressive' order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus - 'continuing the work of Western Marxists by other means' as one of their members noted.

To further the advance of their 'quiet' cultural revolution ... the [Frankfurt] School recommended (among other things):

(1) the creation of racism offences,
(2) continual change to create confusion,
(3) the teaching of sex and homosexuality to children,
(4) the undermining of schools' and teachers' authority,
(5) huge immigration to destroy identity,
(6) the promotion of excessive drinking,
(7) emptying of churches,
(8) an unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime,
(9) dependency on the state or state benefits,
(10) control and dumbing down of media,
(11) encouraging the breakdown of the family.

One of the main ideas of the Frankfurt School was to exploit Freud's idea of 'pansexualism' - the search for pleasure, the exploitation of the differences between the sexes, the overthrowing of traditional relationships between men and women. To further their aims they would:

(a) attack the authority of the father, deny the specific roles of father and mother, and wrest away from families their rights as primary educators of their children,
(b) abolish differences in the education of boys and girls,
(c) abolish all forms of male dominance - hence the presence of women in the armed forces,
(d) declare women to be an 'oppressed class' and men as 'oppressors'."

 

Programmes of Treason

"There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state:

  • Healthcare - Control healthcare and you control the people;

  • Poverty - Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live;

  • Debt - Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That wa6y you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty;

  • Gun Control - Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state;

  • Welfare - Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income);

  • Education - Take control of that people read and listen to - take control of what children learn in school;

  • Religion - Remove the belief in God from the Government and schools;

  • Class Warfare - Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take from (tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor" [source].
