Quote of the Week

"Much of the Muslim world is at war with Western civilization. Islamists use multiculturalism as a foot in the door to attack Western and Christian values from the inside. Much of that attack has its roots on college campuses among the intellectual elite who indoctrinate our youth. Multiculturalism has not yet done the damage in the U.S. that it has in Western European countries—such as England, France, and Germany—but it’s on its way."

Doggone It! Animals Are Not Human. Do We Get That?

One of the perks of living six decades plus is watching culture change over time. Words alter meanings due to incremental usage. Cultural norms diverge as fads or emphases come and go.

But the greatest influence that brings cultural change is the change in worldview that a society holds to--coming either suddenly (through revolution) or slowly (by way of "drip-feed" indoctrination).

The Western World faces the latter problem today. Our two thousand year Bible-based civilization (in varying degrees) is being steadily replaced with a man-centered, atheistic or secular view of life.

One interesting exhibit in our culture? How we treat pets as opposed to a generation ago.

The free speech movement took place during the height of the Vietnam conflict, the hippie culture. and the overall youth free love/sexual revolution. The young dreamers demanded their right to speak out. They said that "freedom" was the issue.

But today's generation is actively squelching free speech--at Berkeley and many other bastions of education.  

Why was free speech sacred in the 60s but now banned by the same people this century?
