The Lazy Man’s Guide to World Domination
Most people are familiar with Paul Harvey’s classic radio piece, “If I were the devil.” (If not, listen to it here.)
Though this piece dates from the mid-1960s, it’s still as fresh and frightening today because, of course, every statement is coming true. In a nutshell, it’s a lazy man’s guide to world domination.
In this column I’d like to discuss, not world domination, but national domination. World domination starts at home.
Domination, as it turns out, isn’t that hard to do. It merely has to be inspired by the world’s enemy, the devil, and voilà.
So what is the easiest way to take over the nation? To examine this question, we merely have to look at the tactics of those who were successful in taking over their own nations (Stalin, Hitler, etc.). This is an ambitious subject to tackle in a 1000-word column, so let’s see how far I can go.
• Do as you please. Encourage decadence and immorality by calling it “liberty.” Push immorality as the new norm. Mock self-control. Harass those who object to the normalizing of depravity; if necessary, intimidate and threaten them into silence.
• Trash religion. Take God out of the equation and encourage people to become their own gods. That way, everything they do is justified in their own eyes and they are not restrained by any higher power. (To paraphrase Dostoevsky: If there is no God, everything is permitted.) Make morality subjective rather than based on Judeo-Christian traditions and values. Anyone who tries to “bitterly cling” to those silly fables should be mocked, ridiculed and excluded.
• Popularize violence and immorality. Flood television screens and movie theaters with visual stimuli dripping with sexual or bloody excess to dull peoples’ senses and make peace and morality seem boring by contrast. Portray immortality as normal, and depict religious people as either hypocrites or evil. Show immorality as being utterly without consequences. Make sure the immoral characters are sympathetic and come out as winners.
• Destroy the family. It’s critical to disrupt, destroy and redefine families, since these societal units will just get in the way of the new agenda. Portray it as normal for husbands and wives to hate each other and fight all the time. Portray it as normal for teens to explode into horrible rebellion and spend their adolescence fornicating and doing drugs. Portray it as normal for divorce to tear families apart. Exalt the single parent. Punish parents who discipline their children. Be suspicious of happy families; label them as abnormal and closely examine them; be ready to tear them apart if necessary (Child Protective Services?) because hey, no one can really be that happy, right?
• Abolish self-control. In a feel-good society, no one should be expected to exercise any restraint whatever. Teach people – especially young people – that self-control is not only unnecessary but wrong. If it feeeeels good, do it.
• Cultivate envy. The rich are only rich because they are lucky. They don’t deserve their wealth, even if they worked 18 hours a day for 25 years to get it. All their money should be redistributed. Vote for anyone who promises to sock it to the rich.
• Encourage hatred. Accuse anyone who disagrees with you of being a racist and a white supremacist, no matter what the subject. Make everyone sputter a denial and apology every time; it weakens their position. Separate people into either “oppressors” or “victims,” then punish the “oppressors” for crimes they never committed and reward the “victims” for crimes they never experienced.
• Encourage a welfare state. Nothing kills ambition or incentive better than free everything. No one should have to work for life’s necessities. Declare such things as housing, transportation, education, health care, etc. as “rights” which should be distributed by the government, especially if the government steals more money from “the rich” to do it. Vote for anyone who promises to keep the freebies coming.
• Encourage illegal immigration. Legal immigrants have the unfortunate habit of coming to this nation, learning English, working very hard, buying homes, educating their children, and becoming business owners. In short, they assimilate. These people are bad examples and every obstacle should be put in their path. Instead, throw open the borders and welcome a flood of illegal immigrants. Ignore factual statistics of drug smuggling, human trafficking, violent crimes, and other petty issues. Give these illegal immigrants free food, housing, education, medicine, and transportation. Oh, and make sure they vote only in approved ways.
• Capture the press and dominate the internet. The only permitted point of view is the satanic one; label anything else as “intolerant. Social media and internet search engines must only be geared to find positive information on approved positions. Moral or ethical opinions and viewpoints must be shadow-banned or censored.
• Capture the children. This is critical, possibly the single-most important facet of world (certainly national) domination. Because adults tend to be stubbornly resistant to devilish tactics, it’s essential to get children away from their parents and education them only in satanically approved ways. Homeschooling should be abolished, or at best made so difficult that parents give up. Take away pride in the nation and teach children our country is evil and oppressive. Refuse to study the Founding documents lest children get a notion that our nation is unique and special. Teach kids the Founding Fathers were white supremacist monsters. Keep children ignorant of economics and teach them everything should be free. Drown them in sexual permissiveness so they never learn self-control and spit on the sanctity of marriage. Let them know clusters of cells are not babies and Planned Parenthood is their savior. Mess up their young minds (and bodies) with faddish notions like transgenderism. Fill their unformed brains with earth-worship and punish them when they express religious devotion (except to Gaia). Teach them emotion should override logic at all times. Remove parental authority, which also removes God’s authority.
Hey, you know what? A brilliant man (inspired by the devil) summed it all up in a tidy instruction book entitled “Rules for Radicals.” Gosh, it’s almost like he listened to Paul Harvey and followed the devil’s advice word for word.
Now, for added amusement, here are two emails from my faithful liberal reader Robert. First email:
Hello again Patrice ! Sorry, but Trump is a very lazy man, and no doubt the laziest president in US history . He was born rich , but if he had not been such an incompetent, corrupt and wasteful businessman, he would be much richer than he is . Remember what the Bible says "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven . " Being or becoming wealthy is not a sin .
But greed, avarice, unscrupulousness, mendacity , cruelty , lechery , pride , arrogance , conceit and dishonesty , all of which which Trump is guilty of in spades , are definitely sinful . Why do so many Christians still
support this monstrously evil man ?
Here are some examples of the differences between liberals and conservatives in America
Liberals favor the common people . Conservatives favor the rich and corporations .
Libs seek to liberate people . Cons seek to subjugate them .
Libs seek to unite and protect people . Cons seek to divide and exploit them .
Libs encourage individuality . Cons encourage and enforce conformity .
Libs celebrate diversity . Cons fear diversity .
Libs embrace science and the arts . Cons oppose science and the arts .
Libs promote peace . Cons promote war and oppression .
Libs promote hope . Cons promote fear .
Libs promote education . Cons promote ignorance .
Libs promote truth . Cons promote deception .
Libs promote cooperation . Cons promote unilateralism .
Libs promote innovation and progress . Cons defend "tradition " against progress .
Libs believe that people are fundamentally good . Cons believe that humans are
fundamentally sinful .
I'm not saying all these thongs are characteristic of you personally, Patrice , just
conservatives in general in America .
All the best, Robert
And second email:
Hello again Patrice ! No offense meant, but this is just a rehash of the same old tired conservative talking points and straw men . It implies that only conservatives and Christians can be good and moral people . In fact, I know many atheists who are the nicest , kindest and mot
generous people you could ever imagine , and there is a small but very vocal number of Christians in America who are horrible people - disgusting bigots and hateful hypocrites who think they have monopoly on morals and ethics . But they are nothing but appallingly narrow-minded,
intolerant , self-righteous and arrogant jerks .
No, Satan doesn’t actually exist , unless you count Donald Trump . Why do so many Christians in America worship a man who may have raped at least one 13 year old girl and who thinks he can do anything he wants with any woman and get away with it ?
1. Do as you please . No, liberals do NOT think it’s OK for people to do anything . However, they rightly feel that people should be free to do as they please as long as they do not harm anyone else , do not interfere with other people’s lives and violate their rights , are not a
public nuisance and don’t do anything which endangers others . Sex between consenting adults in private is no business of any one else - certainly not the police, the law, the courts , or the law . This includes gay sex, which is NOT a “sin “ or a “crime “.
2. Trash religion ?” Conservatives are unable to see the difference between criticizing christianity and individual Christians who say and do reprehensible things and “trashing religion “. Religion SHOULD be criticized . It has caused an unimaginable amount of human misery over the centuries .
Death and destruction, mass murder , brutal torture , etc and has caused so much ignorance and blind fear .
The Spanish Inquisition . The witch hunts . The slaughter of the Albigensian heretics by the Catholic church . Islamic terrorism and brutality . Christian brutality . Oppression prosecution and mass murder of Jews (yes, long before Hitler who was actually a Christian ! ) .
Catholics slaughtering protestants and vice versa . People who criticize and condemn the bigotry and hypocrisy which SOME Christians are guilty of do not “hate” Christians as a whole . American Christians can be among the worst hypocrites on earth .
3. Popularize violence and immorality . The Bible is chock full of violence and immorality ! And it has been used often as an excuse to justify hypocritical immorality and still is . The Bible has done infinitely more harm to America and the world than all the racy movies and TV shows and all the pornography in the world .
If people don’t like movies, books, magazines, websites, movies and TV shows which are ore adult , no one is forcing them to buy the DVDs , go to th movies , watch them on TV etc . Censoring TV and film etc will never make people more virtuous . This only encourages more censorship and ultimately,.government tyranny . There is also plenty of entertainment which Christian themes for anyone who wants it available, and no liberals are trying to censor it .
4. “Destroy the family “? The notions that liberals have been setting out to “destroy the family “ in America is pure poppycock . You know what destroys families ? Poverty . Unemployment . Lack of good education and college education being too expensive except for the rich .
Children raised in poor , cold housing who do not get good nutrition and medical care . And who has caused all of this poverty and helplessness in America ? The Republicans - by denying the poor the help they need, preventing them from escaping poverty etc .
Divorce is unfortunate but often absolutely necessary . But many kids have survived it and gone on to become successful in spite of everything .
Making it hard to divorce has actually resulted in the MURDER of many married women by their husbands . No fault divorce is actually a GOOD thing . Child abuse destroys families . And most victims of child abuse have heterosexual parents , not gay ones .
Who is “suspicious of happy families “? Another star man .
5. “Abolish self control ?” Give me a break ! No liberals want to do this ! Where is the self control of people who spread mindless fear and hatred of gay people , non-christians , Hispanics, atheists and others ? Does Donald Trump have “self control ?” Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha !!!
I’ve seen toddlers with more self control ! Where is the ”self control “ of all the pedophile Catholic priests and the many evangelical Christian preachers who are also pedophiles , or serial adulterers , and who live lives of concealed debauchery while pretending to be “men of God ?”
6. “Cultivate envy ?” Who is doing this ? No liberals I know of . Liberals are not opposed to rich people, or people who are able to become rich .. They don’t want the government to take all or even most of their money away in order to give imaginary “free stuff “ to the poor or others .
But if more rich people paid their fair share in taxes , our economy would be in much better shape . They could still live lives of unimaginable luxury . “Redistribution of wealth ?” ROFLOL !!! It’s our government which redistributes wealth as reverse Robin Hood,s by taking men from the poor and
middle class to make the rich even richer . And some people, like Trump were BORN rich . To be rich is no sin . But to be a rich person who is greedy and callous is a grievous sin . Remember - the vast majority of poor people in America are NOT “lazy “. In fact they work incredibly hard often at
more than one job, and they can barely make ends meet . So do so many members of the middle class , and life is getting tougher than ever for them .too .
7. “ Encourage hatred ?” Come on now . Another straw man . You know who encourages hate din America ? Donald Trump. He encourages hatred of anyone who is not a white Christian in America . Hatred of innocent Hispanics who are NOT “ murderers and rapists “.
Mindless fear and hatred of innocent people merely because they happen to be Muslims . And Trump has refused to condemn the KKK, the Neo-Nazis and other white supremacist hate groups . Some “Christian “.
All over America, preachers and others encourage mindless hatred of gay people, and transgender people . Accusing them of being evil perverts who are “out to recruit children into the gay lifestyle, even though nobody chooses to be gay . And accusing ays of being pedophiles despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of pedophiles are actually HETEROSEXUAL !
And preachers encouraging hatred of atheists , even though they are just abut the most harmless people in the world . Liberals encourage TOLERANCE of others . Compassion for hated minorities and the underdog . And racism SHOULD be condemned . AS well as sexism,
antisemitism, xenophobia, homophobia and any kind of bigotry .
8. “Encourage the welfare state ?” Give me a break ! No one is doing this . The government MUST provide a secure social safety net for the unfortunate and those who are down on their luck . Conservatives want to destroy or greatly weaken this safety net in America . They don’t care
about the poor, the unemployed , people struggling to earn enough to survive , the disabled, children and infants , the elderly and infirm etc . They blather about “self reliance “. How can people rely on themselves if they are helpless ?
Our government does not provide “free stuff “ and no one is asking the government to support them generously while they do no work and nobody is demanding that the government take hard-earned money form those who do work . People want to be ABLE to earn a decent living .
But too many can’t through no fault of their own . Who gets all the free stuff ? The RICH ! And the big corporations and their CEOs .
Millions of Americans are struggling to get by . Many have fallen through the cracks . 30,000 Americans die every year because health care is too expensive . And far more who are not even poor go BANKRUPT in order to afford it .
In America , our government , especially the GOP , have kept wages stagnant for decades while allowing the cost of living to rise steadily . This has had a disastrous effect on the nation. Yet conservatives still accuse the poor and middle class of being “lazy bums “!
Please consider what I am saying here and please respond. Please put as much of it as possible in your nest post at WND . Thanks !
All the best, Robert
