The Times Are a-Changing: Humanity is declining into times of civil drought and chaos

Humanity is falling into chaos. We can no longer even talk to each other — not just because the US is divided and angry to the point of talking about civil war but because words and concepts clearly understood by all people for millennia have in mere years been stripped of their meanings.

First we chose our sexual preference, but then we chose our gender or pretended we can, even though our genetics, no matter what we do to our bodies continue to scream “male” or “female.” With that, basic words are losing all of their meaning. What does “women’s sports” now mean? Anything at all? What is a woman? The modern Western woman may now tell you she has no idea what a woman is even though she claims to be one.

Before long, the first Black woman on the Supreme Court will have to tell you she also has no idea what “Black” is and cannot tell Black from White because she is “not a biologist.” That will happen because people will start declaring their race, regardless of their genetics, just as they have begun to do with their gender. After all, male/female is a vastly bigger, more basic level of categorization than race because it divides one half of the entire animal kingdom from the other, while race consists of many smaller categories and is only thought of in humans whereas among plants we would speak of “varietals.”

When “male” or “female” are up for grabs and can be self-defined, then truly everything is up for grabs, and chaos reigns because words cease to carry any sense of a concrete meaning. Next, we will be allowing people to declare their own species on their birth certificate because dysphoria extends to human belief about their species, too. Then it will be no more nice to tell someone they are dysphoric about their species than it now is to tell them they are dysphoric about their gender. Society will pretend along under the grossly misguided notion that this is the nice thing to do, rather than helping people deal with programming that has clearly gone wrong inside their head. Think that is a bridge too far so it won’t happen? It’s already happening. (See “Human-gender-species-planetary-reassignment surgery: We now have a virtual cafeteria of trans-human options.”)

CS Lewis, like George Orwell, saw the deconstruction of language coming

Lewis wrote his own dystopian novel, titled That Hideous Strength, and I just read a good essay about it that I’m going to share with you as I’ve been craving the opportunity to write about the abject chaos that is now overtaking America.

C.S. Lewis’s That Hideous Strength describes a descent into tyranny that bears an eerie resemblance to our current situation.  However, Lewis foresaw a few things that weren’t on Orwell’s radar. When Orwell reviewed That Hideous Strength shortly after its publication in 1945, he warned that “we are within sight of a time when such [monstrous] dreams will be realizable.”

C.S. Lewis’ Fantasy is Our Reality

We can now see those things are, in fact, being realized around us. While Orwell described “newspeak” as a government manipulation of language that distorted things to mean their opposite, Lewis spoke of highly intelligent college professors becoming inarticulate because their language turned into word salad no one could understand. In Lewis’s novel this happened because their demonically demented minds degraded their ability to express themselves. The plans of the university elite go awry in a small college town when those who think they are wisest become effectively dumb (in the literal sense but also the figurative).

At one point, Professor Frost—one of the “inner circle”—finds himself unable to speak: “Nothing but nonsense syllables would occur to his mind.”  Later on, at the long-awaited “victory” banquet at Belbury Hall, things fall apart.

The director of the Institute gets up to speak, but his speech soon turns to gibberish.  Unable to help themselves, people in the audience begin to laugh…. John Wither, the Deputy Director … muses to himself that it might be advantageous if Jules [the aged director] makes a fool of himself: “Jules was in many respects a nuisance, and this might be as good an opportunity as any other for ending his career.”

The deputy director sees this as an opportunity to get a leg up as the director makes a fool of himself. After allowing the director to parade his incapacity like a modern-day US president might be inclined to do, the deputy rises to the podium where his clear speech will show he is the new man for the job.

So, Wither who is also old, gets up, firmly forces the smaller man back into his seat, and takes over the podium.  Then he begins to speak:

“Tidies and fugleman—I sheel foor that we all-er-most steeply rebut the defensible, though, I trust, lavatory Aspasia which gleams to have selected our redeemed inspector this deceiving.  It would—ah—be shark, very shark, from anyone’s debenture…”

That’s “word salad.”

It’s also what happens when all of society joins in pretending men can have babies and can become women eligible to join in women’s sports because they are really the same thing, even though they obviously had decades of developing as a man under male hormones and still carry a full set of XY chromosomes throughout their programming that scream “male.” It’s what happens when we decide established words that long communicated distinctive meanings will now carry whatever meaning we personally want them to … like the Mad Hatter in Alice’s Wonderland. At that point, we may still have words, but we don’t have the ability to communicate anything meaningful.

In Lewis’s dystopian novel,

the whole room is thrown into pandemonium: hysterical laughter, a babble of voices, anger, fistfights—and worse. Before the night is over, the [college elite] are either dead or scattered.

This is where our society is headed and where our degeneracy of language will help carry us.

The author of the essay points out that one might possibly see President Joe Biden’s confused speech in all of this. He’s a great salad maker, but he always has been. So, it may be dementia, or it may just be the old duffer being the old gaffer he’s always been. Who can tell? But, going a little wider, one can see that happening in language all around the Biden camp, as they tell us they have no clear idea what long-clear words mean; and it is not just as they seek to redefine what it means to be a man or a woman, but as they seek to redefine any long-understood term that is not suitable to their needs, such as, “What is a recession?”

That Hideous Strength was written around the time Joe Biden, now a doddering old man, was born, so we’ve made the journey to word-salad elitism in the space of one lifetime … and have, in fact, made that journey mostly in the space of the last half decade.

That Hideous Strength is, in part, a retelling of the story of the Tower of Babel—the story of men going beyond the proper boundaries God has set. In the Bible story and in Lewis’s novel, the confusion of tongues is both a punishment and a judgment—a judgment which reveals the absolute futility of man’s attempt to remake his nature and become godlike.

The author asks his own question about whether NoMoJo is just stumbling in speech or is evidence of a greater plague of lies and chaos descending over humanity:

Is it possible that Joe Biden’s deterioration is a sign from God—a sign of what happens to a society that ignores the reality God has created and insists on creating its own?

Before continuing in this vein, let me assure you that I am not the kind of person who sees signs everywhere. In fact, I’m agnostic about most supposed signs. If someone tells me that the design on the Oval Office drapes is actually a verse from the Koran, my first instinct is to say “Oh, come on!” And if I’m told that when a politician crosses his fingers in a certain way, he’s actually sending a signal to fellow white supremacists, I tend to be doubtful.

The word-salad feast

We’re experiencing a plague of garbage words that is coming from our most elite leaders all the time now. Aside from the supernatural question above, the author points out that no one denies Biden’s word salad anymore. They just try to hide him from the public as much as they can. Where the author goes from there is what I find interesting:

Democrats now realize it’s well-past time to replace him.

The situation is reminiscent of the banquet scene when Wither realizes that Jules must be replaced. But, as we’ve seen, that doesn’t work out too well. Wither’s speech is just as confusing as is Jules’. His mind is just as vacant.

Think of that with respect to who the replacements for NoMoJo would if he did wither away and had to be replaced by one of his equally old or equally unspeakable colleagues:

The first in line is a woman whose ability to conceptualize doesn’t seem to rise above the level of “the more we get together, the happier we’ll be” (repeated ad nauseam). Nancy Pelosi, the next in line, is an 82-year-old who slurs her words and fills in the gaps in her sentences with frenzied gesticulations.

We can easily explain Pelosi this way:

She’s probably intoxicated most of the time, but Kamala seems unable to express anything that actually sounds intelligent, and this disability she accomplishes without the help of potato water. She speaks a regular diet of word salad that sounds something like this: (Examples END about the two-minute mark.)

or this:

Is this a diseases that happens to the mind when we start reconfiguring language so much that we no longer know how to talk as we also reconfigure our very selves? Take this peculiar Kamala dissertation on womanhood for example: (Example ends at 45-second mark.)

Apparently, Kamala has somehow found certainty about how to know what a woman is, unlike many modern Democrats, so that she knows she’s the daughter, of all things, of a woman, who was, of all things, also the daughter of a woman. These are, however, clearly things we all now need to clarify multiple times even though there are none of us who was not born of a woman. But, if Kamala wanted to change the no longer ascertainable fact that she is a woman, of course, she could now legally state she is the son of woman, and by legally, I mean she could qualify herself for all the legal disadvantages of being male or to compete in male sports, etc. In fact, gender reassignment has become such a nut salad in itself, that some regions have now had to pass laws that stipulate you can only reassign your gender once a year!

This is the bizarre world of communication-free speech we have now entered as we insist words can mean whatever we personally want them to mean. Sure, you can do that; but you can no longer communicate if you do.

There’s the bumbling Biden sign, the hapless Harris sign, and the clueless Karine sign.  But there’s more.  There’s the “trans friendly” sign on the bathroom door, the “shout out your abortion” sign at the pro-choice demonstration, and the “woman athlete of the year” certificate which was awarded this year to a male athlete. These are signs that are hard to miss.

And, of course, there’s the sign of the drag queen. As you may have noticed, drag queens are suddenly all the rage. Libraries have drag queen story hours for kids. U.S. military bases bring in drag queens to entertain the troops; and in Miami, a restaurant recently offered a “kid’s brunch” which included a sexually explicit drag show. Meanwhile, Salon.com published an op-ed explaining “How exposing your kids to drag performances can be a good thing.”

Out of the mouths of babes

Whether you consider Kamala a babe or not, the confusion of language is now completely overwhelming those we all consider babes with confusion, and it is because the majority of the US population is going along with it and even encouraging it as a “nice” thing because they lack the courage to stand up against outrageous nonsense perpetrated on children.

If you have LGBTQ+ parents who teach you can simply chose your gender, why would you question that? If they say to you they cannot tell if you are a boy or a girl by looking, especially if they were there at the moment of your birth, surely they would know whether or not it could be determined.

Let’s just make sure we are confusing our children as much as we possibly can. As a result of an extremely obvious LGBTQ+++oooxxx agenda, we are seeing a massive expansion in the the number of children who are trans-everything. Supposing these child-mutilating parents all start telling their children they also don’t know what species their child is? Imagine what communication is going to be like in the next decade when these children are everywhere and no one knows who is what anymore. The very basic words of our language are being rendered meaningless.

But it gets worse. We are also now being bombarded with people who want to redefine pedophilia against children in order to make that kind of exploitation more socially acceptable, too:

The effort there is to either drop “pedophilia” from the English lexicon because, oh my gosh, it has bad connotations, or to make sure it loses its bad connotations and just becomes one more form of the human love we appreciate. This isn’t a one-off; another professor has also been writing to advocate we ditch our negative beliefs about sex between adults and the minors they love.

Next comes turning beastiality into something socially acceptable, in spite of monkeypox. Oops. Already happening. Recently, I had to stop watching a very popular television show because it repeatedly made reference to sex with horses as an exhilarating possibility because of the size of their … well, you know.

Strange is the new normal

Lewis anticipated this woke weirdness in That Hideous Strength. The top people at the … Institute are all rather strange…sort of like the top people in the Biden administration.

They are strange but do not know they are strange, and the rest of society is by and in-large afraid to say they are strange. Thus, politicians like Kamala, afraid of saying the wrong thing about being a woman, overcompensate and also try to talk without saying anything at all so they don’t risk offending the woking dead among us.

Wither, the Deputy Director … is lost in a mental fog. He talks in high-sounding but thought-deadening cliches. Frost, who is second in command to Wither, is as cold-hearted as his name suggest. Dr. Filostrato, an Italian scientist and a eunuch has a dirt phobia. He wants to improve the human race by getting rid of breeding, birth, and death. He hopes to create a sterile and artificial world to replace the fertile and organic world which he loathes. His experiments center around what we would now call “transhumanism.”

The contemporaneous move to transhumanism described in the article I referenced above has also talked about openly as the new dawning reality at the World Economic Forum. (See: “Apocalyptic Vision by Dr. Harari about Human Hacking at the World Economic Forum Leaves George Orwell in the Dust!

And then there is “Fairy” Hardcastle—the sadistic head of the … police force. “Fairy” is a ‘butch’ lesbian who enjoys beating up people and torturing young women.

Which is what we essentially do when we tell girls they cannot really tell what sex they are just by looking, sending 999 out of a 1,000 on a lifelong journey they would never have experienced in the world as it was just ten years ago when maybe 1 in 1,000 were confused about their gender. Now we want all to suffer the same conundrum just so the one doesn’t feel isolated as if that is some sort of protective gift to childhood.

Lewis, in short, was well aware of the perverted side of human nature. He would not have been surprised by a culture (like our own) which believes that exposing children to drag performance “can be a good thing.” Nor would he have been surprised to learn that well-funded doctors in England and America would one day perform ghastly surgeries in order to turn boys into girls and girls into boys.

What seemed like a bizarre and possibly improbable world when I read Lewis’s novel decades ago, now seems like the world I see and hear every day. It is intentionally foisted upon me as the planned LGBTQ agenda on almost every television show I turn to. (See “A ‘trigger warning’ on ‘1984’? Big Brother would be proud!“)

This new normal of gender-shifting, sexual fluidity in confluence with diseases that are primarily sexually transmitted, possibly first infecting humans through bestial intercourse with monkeys, is looking something like this:

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Romans 1: 18-32

Not just approve, but teach little children to practice them through Drag-queen reading hours and taking kids of field trips to gay bars just so they can normalize their own passions when children shouldn’t even be going on trips to any kind of bar. (See the referenced articles above.)

As dark as all of this confusion is, these times are starting to also feel like a deeper darkness:

Living through plagues that feel almost “biblical”

During a time of droughts, record heatwaves all over the world and resulting wildfires and plagues of Covid and monkeypox and shortages that feel apocalyptic because they have become so common and so widespread, it’s interesting to note the very book from which we have popularized the word “apocalypse” (because “The Apocalypse” is the name of that book in its original language, which means “the revelation”) also describes global confusion caused by lies as part of the scenario for “the end of the ages.” I’m not saying we’re in those times yet, but I think a lot of people are feeling it’s all starting to feel like a foretaste of this:

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fireThey were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.

10 The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast,and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony 11 and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.

12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates,and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East13 Then I saw three impure spirits that looked like frogs;they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.

15 “Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awakeand remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

16 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.

The Apocalypse 16:8-16 (the Book of Revelation)

Perhaps these slimy impure spirits come out of the “mouths” of these symbolic beasts of the final age of humanity’s godless reign over the earth as representing the lying words and twisted language that will deceive the “kings of the East,” which, based on the geography given in the verses, could be the dictatorial leaders of Russia and China sending the armies of their nations into the West.

I’m not saying this is THAT — these times are those times — but I am saying we have entered times that almost daily now really do have the feel of George Orwell’s dystopia and CS Lewis’s dystopia, and even the ultimate dystopia of The Apocalypse from which Lewis derived some of his ideas to where it could culminated in such days. It’s certainly not hard to see how easily and rapidly we could get to such times from here.

The times they are a changing and doing so in ways few humans even five years ago thought we’d see and in ways that Bob Dylan didn’t foresee when he wrote that song either.

(Since I cannot post the video here by YouTube restrictions, I’ll close by recommending you open that link to reminisce on just how much the times have changed with a song written about prophets by someone considered a secular prophet of his time. I’ve linked to the version by The Seekers because the mix provides a nice walk down Abby Road through simpler, lighter times — a good note to end on. It’s also interesting to reflect on how a woman could sing about being a woman at an earlier time in my life and perhaps yours and not wonder for the least fleeting second what that even meant and when people could be joyously proud of their imperfectly human national heritage, crossing the national divides of this world, so here’s a little ode to Australia from this Australian group about where we’ve come from, too, as well as a bonus mix of the spiritua/gospel tunes that illuminated their lives if you like. All because in dark times, it’s nice to end by looking back on lighter times and brighter tunes and to reflect through songs of hope on those we appreciate because they have always stood by us.)
