Is America on the fast track back to slavery?

Published

on

For Immediate Release (Phoenix, AZ) – Could America be on the fast track to slavery? In his debut book, “Entitled to Slavery: A Blueprint for Breaking the Chains that Threaten American Exceptionalism,” (WND Books) conservative writer and commentator Michael Abbott explores this question by pointing out the destructive course that has felled societies throughout history. With detailed research and anecdotal evidence, Abbott makes the case that America is on that same course, and both political parties are to blame.

“History shows every advanced society progressing through the following nine stages:  bondage…to great spiritual faith…to courage…to liberty…to abundance…to selfishness…to complacency…to apathy…to dependence… and tragically back into slavery,” says Abbott.  “When the secular culture tells us that we are ‘moving forward’ or ‘progressing as a culture,’ they are exactly right! What they don’t realize, however, is that we are only moving forward to the next stage in this lifecycle, which is the default human condition of slavery.”

Abbott hits every political hot button issue in “Entitled to Slavery” including how the public education system is taking away parents’ rights; how Common Core is modeled after the regimes of Mao and Lenin; how progressives reveal their true religion by evangelizing climate change and minimum wage directives; and how abortion is the glue binding it all together.

“Capitalism teaches man how to swim.  Communism teaches man how to drown.
Progressivism teaches man that water doesn’t even exist,” Abbott explains.

Abbott makes the claim that America is somewhere between apathy and dependence on the lifecycle of human civilization. But he offers surprisingly simple suggestions as to how to avoid the ninth and final stage of the cycle, which is slavery.

“Progressivism must be cut off at the root,” says Abbott. “There are solutions hiding in plain sight, but today’s parents will need to get serious about their responsibilities if there is any hope for the next generation. It is possible to turn our culture around and start going backwards on the civilization life cycle. If we walk back our complacency and selfishness, we can get back to abundance. There is remarkable reason for optimism.”

Q&A with Author Michael Abbott:

Q: The media and academia typically label Christians and conservatives as being “anti-science.” Is this accurate?

 A: Actually, this label perfectly describes the media and academia! Did you know the current application for admission at the University of California features six different options for a candidate’s gender? Think of that: a state university formally rejecting biological science…on its application for admission into the College of Biological Sciences! Here’s a second example. Why do certain politically-expedient positions, such as climate change, receive an exemption from the rigors of the scientific method? Time and again, the terrifying predictions of climate alarmists fail to materialize, but we are told to ignore this scientific data and continue extending our blind support. That is antithetical to science. Lastly, why do emotional appeals to increase the minimum wage completely disregard tangible economic data proving it will only worsen teenage unemployment? My book empowers conservatives with many effective counterarguments when wrongfully branded with this label.

Q: One of the chapters is called A Shameless, Parental Dereliction of Duty. What are you referring to?

A: Every parent wants what’s best for their children; however, by and large, we have parented our children according to what I term the four pillars of modern parenting. The first of these is the promotion of poverty. How can indebting young adults to the tune of $200,000 for a college degree possibly be in their best interests? The second is the outsourcing of supervision. The television, tablet, and smartphone open up a world of information, but without any controls, they function as virtual pacifiers for our young children. The third is the rejection of work, despite the fact that work is the very prerequisite for attaining independence! The final pillar is the suppression of discipline, a tool of correction that has become misconstrued as a form capital punishment. Together, they provide the perfect recipe for the rearing of children who are totally dependent and directionless as they enter adulthood.

Q:  Why would the national department of health order doctors to violate the Hippocratic Oath?

A:  Because we live in a culture that rejects biological science.  Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act prohibits any discrimination in health programs on the basis of a number of factors, including age.  Last year, the US Department of Health and Human Services issued rules informing doctors that declining to perform gender reassignment surgery on children could be a potentially career-ending decision.  Why?  Well, it would constitute discrimination on the basis of age.  Did you know that WebMD links gender dysphoria with severe distress, anxiety, and depression, and UCLA researchers found that 41% of people who suffer from gender dysphoria attempt suicide at some point in their lives?  Yet, by law, we now force doctors to perform a procedure on a child that will likely lead to distress, anxiety, depression, and even suicide.  Those aren’t my words; that’s scientific research.  This is how the Affordable Care Act orders doctors to violate the Hippocratic Oath.

Marco Rubio whips out Bible verse that goes after the Florida recount debacle

There are two prevailing opinions pertaining to the Florida election and subsequent recounts. Democrats generally feel like it’s good to “count every ballot” until they win, even if that means “finding” more ballots to add to their candidates’ tallies. Republicans have been fighting against the recounts despite that play coming across ingenuously to voters on both sides.

We should want every valid vote counted. The operative word there is “valid.”

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a Catholic, Tweeted a Bible verse that seemed apropos to the current debacle in Florida.

One might even say this draws in one of the favorite punching bags for Republicans, former presidential candidate “Crooked” Hillary Clinton. That wasn’t the intent, I’m sure, but it’s always fun to laugh at Hillary.

3 reasons President Trump should offer Asia Bibi asylum

3 reasons President Trump should offer Asia Bibi asylum

There are certain political moves that can be considered “no-brainers” for anyone in Washington DC. Offering persecuted Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi asylum is one of them.

The drawbacks of doing so are few but potent. It would enrage hardline Muslims in the United States who may go after Bibi and her family, but that’s a risk she’ll face anywhere she goes. It would put US citizens and military personnel at greater risk than they already are when traveling abroad, especially in Muslim majority nations like Pakistan. Lastly, it would spark negative press against the President who would ask whether or not he would do the same for a Muslim in a similar circumstance.

All of those negatives are mitigated by three important positives.

  1. It goes against the bigotry narrative. Don’t get me wrong. Mainstream media and leftists will still try to paint the act of offering asylum to a persecuted Pakistani family as racist because she’s Christian. Thankfully, most Americans are smart enough to see through that false narrative.
  2. Pakistan won’t mind. If anything, their preference would be for America, which is already evil in the eyes of most hardline Islamic Pakistanis, to accept a burden that will only perpetuate a narrative that already exists.
  3. It’s the right thing to do. Any time the President of the United States can do the right thing, he should. Lately, there just haven’t been many opportunities to do so.

Every day that passes brings Asia Bibi and her family closer to the dangers that are closing in on them in Pakistan. They need to be taken in as soon as possible. Italy, Germany, and even Canada have offered to step up. The United States needs to do the same.

Why does the Left have the same agenda after they turned socialist?

Why does the Left have the same agenda after they turned socialist

What does it say about the Left when they admitted to the truth, but kept the same ideas?

There was a time when the nation’s Left vehemently denied being socialist. No one was supposed to state the obvious truth that their agenda bore a striking resemblance to communist ideas from ancient Greece. Nor were they to be compared to that expressed 500 years ago in Sir Thomas More’s work ‘Utopia’ [Published in 1516]

Even when it was obvious with admitted socialist Senator Bernie Sanders agreeing with the Democrats in most respects, the Leftists still denied reality. Such is the case that, lies, deception and denial are part and parcel of their usual tactics. They still persist in denying that they incessantly demanding gun confiscation, while demanding gun confiscation.

The Left’s miraculous transformation to the obvious.

Then a few years ago something truly miraculous took place, some polling data showed that those who were unfamiliar with the oppression and mass murder that is endemic to socialism began to warm up to it’s promise. By ‘warm up’ we mean that some fell for the prospect of free health care, free college, free housing, free money, etc. Never mind that those promises were as worthless as Obama’s oft repeated lie that one could keep your health plan.

Suddenly Bernie Sanders became a ‘rock star’, followed by a cascade of newly minted socialists. What once was verboten to admit became the in thing to be an up and coming communist. Almost overnight, Democrats of all stripes became admitting what has been obvious for decades, that they were Reds through and through. Yes, red is the true colour of the socialist-Left, but that story of yet again another deception will have to wait for another discussion.

Nothing changed in the Left’s national agenda, why?

Strangely enough, aside from a few cosmetic items, the nation’s Left has the same policy ideas they had before they admitted the obvious. Back when she was First Lady, Hillary Clinton spearheaded a drive for nationally socialized health care. This is now one of the Left’s biggest vote-buying schemes, and socialism’s biggest goodies. They can admit to its collectivist in nature now, but they denied it previously.

Back when they were trying to sell the disaster soon to be known as Obamacare, they had to avoid bringing up the topic of the term ‘redistributing wealth’ a staple of socialism if there ever was one. Such would also have to be the case with their promises of ‘free healthcare for all’ since money doesn’t grow on trees.

Liberty Control is the last of our examples being a vestige of every socialist regime. The collectivist ideologies have to rely on force to redistribute wealth as well as suppress any opposition when the glorious promises cannot be fulfilled. They can’t very well do this with an armed citizenry, thus one of their highest priorities is to grab those guns. The Left has been on this same little quest for years, incrementally edging closer and closer to their ‘firearms–free’ nirvana.

The Takeaway.

It should be patently obvious why the Left’s national agenda never changed from when they denied being socialists to admitting the truth of the matter. They were dyed in the wool socialists all along, they just couldn’t be honest about it, as is the case with everything else they do.
