Congressman Ron Paul of Texas gave a speech recently. He made the following observations:
“Neoconservatism is not the philosophy of free markets and a wise foreign policy. Instead, it represents big-government welfare at home and a program of using our military might to spread THEIR version of American values throughout the world.”
“[Michael] Ledeen’s most recent publication … praises ‘Creative destruction … both within our own society and abroad … [foreigners] seeing America UNDO traditional societies may fear us, for they do not wish to be UNDONE’ … ‘They must attack us in order to survive, just as we must destroy them to advance our historic mission.’”
“Ledeen quotes Machiavelli approvingly on what makes a great leader. ‘A prince must have NO other objectives or other thoughts or take anything for his craft, except WAR.’ … ‘the virtue of the warrior are those of great leaders of any successful organization.’”
“Ledeen believes man is basically evil and cannot be left to his own desires. Therefore, he must have proper and strong leadership, just as Machiavelli argued. Only then can man achieve good, as Ledeen explains: ‘In order to achieve the most noble accomplishments, the leader may have to enter into evil.’” (www.house.gov/paul – p. 10-12).
What is the historic mission of the United States, according to Ledeen? Why is America changing? Who is responsible for the moral and fiscal bankruptcy of our nation? Is the war on terrorism designed to protect American citizens from Muslim terrorists, or is the program designed to monitor the American people and establish a DICTATORSHIP? Will the United States survive as a free nation?
Who was Machiavelli that Ledeen discussed, and why is his political philosophy important for us to understand today? He was a member of the revolutionary government that ruled Florence from 1494 to 1512 A.D., and Machiavelli was forced to leave Florence after Pope Julius II helped the Medici family regain control of the city. In the years that followed, Machiavelli wrote The Prince, which established his place in history. What did he believe? He believed people were inherently evil, people cannot rule themselves, and a successful State needs an AUTHORITARIAN RULER (a Prince). To succeed, the “Prince” must WAGE WAR; he must be willing to USE deceit and cruelty; and he must believe the end justifies the means (Wikipedia.org – Machiavelli).
In a letter that Machiavelli wrote to a friend, he stated: “When evening comes, I return home … and go into my study. On the threshold I strip naked … and put on the robes of court and palace, and … I enter the courts of the ancients and am welcomed by them, and there I taste the food that alone is mine, and for which I was born. And there I make bold to speak to them and ask the motives of their actions, and they … REPLY to me … I pass indeed into their world” (Wikipedia – Machiavelli).
Revelation 13: 1-2 says a world government will rise with power from an unseen spirit entity known as Satan. The ancients called these unseen spirits “Masters of Wisdom.”
Machiavelli’s totalitarian plan is being used by the neoconservatives, especially Michael Ledeen, to control the Bush Administration, thus continuing the WAR!!! The “war on terror” is being used to draw the strings of dictatorship in America. Is Iran next?
There is another neoconservative that needs to be examined, Leo Strauss. He created the neoconservative Trotskyite movement when he was a professor at the University of Chicago. He convinced his students that they were a “special few” who could change the world. He taught them they could use deceit and cruelty to attain their goals of world government. Trotskyites are followers of Communist Trotsky. Strauss taught them esoteric [secret spiritual] writing of the occult teachings of the “ancients” and the Mystery religions that worshipped Satan.
Here is what these neocons believe:
They agree with Trotsky on permanent revolution, violent as well as intellectual.
They are for redrawing the map of the Middle East and are willing to use force to do so.
They believe in preemptive war to achieve desired ends.
They accept the notion that the ends justify the means – that hardball politics is a moral necessity.
They express no opposition to the welfare state.
They are not bashful about an American empire; instead they strongly endorse it.
They believe lying is necessary for the state to survive.
They believe a powerful federal government is a benefit, just the opposite of our once Republican form of government.
They believe pertinent facts about how a society should be run should, be held by the ELITE, and withheld from those who do not have the courage to deal with it.
They believe neutrality in foreign affairs is ill advised (Radio Liberty).
The United States is in deep trouble because of the neoconservatives. They receive their power from the “Ancient Masters of Wisdom” – Satan and his demons. They have total control of the Bush Administration, and those Administrations since the 1960s.
Throwing off these agents of darkness will require a complete turning back to Jesus, the Christ, of Almighty God. Total repentance is required or God will not act!!!
