Many Americans are wondering how their country, a supposed “center-right” nation, reached the point of electing and reelecting the most radical leftist administration in its history.
Indeed, a long chain of events giving rise to a confluence of societal changes had to occur for such a fundamental reordering to take place.
What exactly were they? How did this happen? Here’s how:
First, when the liberal Democrat establishment, manifested by the teachers unions, decisively gained control of public education in the U.S. over four decades ago, the perpetrators may or may not have been conscious of setting the process in motion.
But that they did, regardless.
You may recall how American public schools gradually abandoned values and lowered standards — the former having the effect of diluting the nation’s public morality and the latter achieving the mass dumb down of our populace. Attitudes of the U.S. citizenry today would have been very foreign to our population of even 20 or 30 years ago.
Homosexual marriage, legal marijuana, class warfare, national bankruptcy, socialized medicine and communists knowingly appointed to the executive branch! Those were radical ideas even in our recent past.
