It surprises me that so many people think what is happening is a series of random events, and never feel the strings pulling on them or bother to look behind the curtain. The point of this post is to call attention to the concerted efforts to corrupt American culture for more than 60 years!
In the 20th century capitalism destroyed communism in its ability to create wealth and promote liberty and democracy. Until LBJs Great Society programs, poverty was being reduced at 1% a year! As an economic system, free market capitalism proved superior. The conscious shift from attacking the economic system, to attacking and demoralizing the culture began in the second half of the century and has only become far more sophisticated and technologically advanced.
1958 – excerpts from Current 45 Communist Goals, as outlined by W. Cleon Skousen (author Naked Communism) and given to Congress.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. (i.e. China)
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. (has happened)
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. (happened)
11. Promote the U.N. (large multinational governance) as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow.) (happening)
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. (happened)
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. (legislating from the bench, happens)
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks. (happened)
18. Gain control of all student newspapers. (get them young)
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs of organizations which are under Communist attack. (useful idiots)
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions. (happened)
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. (happened)
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.” (happened)
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.” (happened)
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. (happened – porn, porn and more porn)
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV. (eliminating beauty as an aspiration) (happened)
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” (getting off, addiction, hedonism) (happened)
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.” (the church of woke) (happening)
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” (god is dead) (happened)
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. (happening)
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.” (happening)
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the grounds that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over. (happening)
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. (happening – BLM, Antifa, Planned Parenthood, creation of dependent underclass)
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus. (happening)
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions. (public sector labor unions, industry has already been destroyed by these policies) (happened)
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business. (merging of corporate and state power is in progress) (happening)
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand (or treat). (Defund the Police movement) (happening)
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. (Psychology has been corrupted big time already) (happening)
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. (That is the locus for control) (happened)
41. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems. (happening)
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike. (On it’s way)
In 1984 a former KGB agent was straight-forward with American press about Communist goals and aims.

Things are far less random than they appear.
