The Barbarians are at the Gates! Western Civilization is Under Attack!

The Barbarians are at the gates. When the Democratic Socialists (the rabid wing of the Democrat Party now dominating the party) condemn Western Civilization what would they destroy?

This is what your children are being taught. 

 This is from the National Association of Scholars. Capitalism and Western Civilization: Productivity

As you can see Current Affairs looks at Western Civilization and thinks Western Civilization should be dumped. Add to that this version of Capitalism from the National Association of Scholars and you have the education that has produced Social Democrats like Ocasia-Cortez. They have never been taught the value of Western Civilization. 

Let's begin our look at the development of Western Civilization. Let us first look at the Code of Hammurabi, written about 1792-1750 BCE. 

The Code of Hammurabi

Interesting in this Code is the existence of slaves and laws that pertain to them. Yet, in America, because of our evolution through the contributions of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the Common Law of England, and the enlightened forefathers in America, led by the Christian beliefs, America outlawed slavery as the result of a war that killed 620,000. They were mainly white men. 

They also valued and recognized the loss of an unborn child.

 "Anu and Bel called by name me, Hammurabi, the exalted prince, who feared God, to bring about the rule of righteousness in the land, to destroy the wicked and the evil-doers; so that the strong should not harm the weak; so that I should rule over the black-headed people like Shamash, and enlighten the land, to further the well-being of mankind ..."

So begins the Law Code of Hammurabi, a list of nearly 300 laws etched into a two and one-half meter high black diorite pillar, discovered in 1902 but dating back to the time of Hammurabi himself (1792-1750 B.C.E).

Some laws were quite brutal, others rather progressive. Members of the upper-class often received harsher punishments than commoners, and women had quite a few important rights.
Most of the nearly 300 laws written on the pillar pertain to property rights of landowners, slavemasters, merchants, and builders.
Here are some of the more unusual laws that seem very foreign to a modern society:
1.    If a man strike a free-born woman so that she lose her unborn child, he shall pay ten shekels for her loss. 
2.    If any one finds runaway male or female slaves in the open country and bring them to their masters, the master of the slaves shall pay him two shekels of silver. 
3.    If any one is committing a robbery and is caught, then he shall be put to death.
4.    If a tavern-keeper (feminine) does not accept corn according to gross weight in payment of a drink, but takes money, and the price of the drink is less than that of the corn, she shall be convicted and thrown into the water. If a son of a paramour or a prostitute say to his adoptive father or mother: "You are not my father, or my mother," his tongue shall be cut off.
5.    If a son strike his father, his hands shall be hewn off. 
6.    If a man knock out the teeth of his equal, his teeth shall be knocked out. 
7.    If a barber, without the knowledge of his master, cut the sign of a slave on a slave not to be sold, the hands of this barber shall be cut off. 
8.    If a slave says to his master: "You are not my master," if they convict him his master shall cut off his ear.

Notice that in Hammurabi's Law one proved one's innocence through the Ordeal. The Ordeal was resorted to regularly in what were considered the most serious crimes, adultery and sorcery, because it was thought those two infractions were most likely to undermine social stability. Sorcery, to an ancient Mesopotamian, would not have exactly the same definition it does in modern day, but would be along the lines of performing acts that went against the known will of the gods-acts which reflected on oneself the kind of power and prestige only the gods could lay claim to. Tales of evil sorcerers and sorceresses are found throughout many periods of Mesopotamian history and the writers of those tales always have them meet with a bad end, as, it seems they also did when submitted to the Ordeal. 

Between 16th and 13th BC God delivered the Ten Commandments through Moses


700 BCE 

The most important and most obvious contribution from Ancient Greece to the United States is Democracy. The city of Athens in Greece is widely known as the birthplace of Democracy. Despite frequent changes in Greece's legal system, once democracy was first 

2.       Ancient Greece
The second most major contribution from Ancient Greece is the idea of a republic, where members are elected to represent a part of the country's population or region. This system was not always in use, because Greece's government changed frequently. The Republic was led by two elected consuls and advised by a senate of appointed magistrates. Extremely hierarchical by nature, the Republic led to our current legislative structures and modern democracy and is arguably one of the greatest Roman contributions to the modern world.

3.       Ancient Greece
Not surprisingly, Greece had a Judicial branch as well known as the Dikasteria. The Jurors in Ancient Greece had almost unlimited power.

4.    Ancient Greece
They also had a group similar to our Executive branch, known in Greek as the Ekklesia. In theory, this group had the least power in the Greek government, but in practice this group could be very powerful depending on the members who made it up.

5.    Ancient Greece
 Ancient Greece also had a system very similar to the United States House of Representatives, known in Greek as the Boule. This was a set of 500 representatives, 50 from each of the ten tribes. They held the least amount of power in the Greek government.

6.     Ancient Rome
Ancient Rome was one of the first ancient civilizations to attempt complete documentation of their legal system. This information was compiled into a single document known as 
Corpus Juris Civilis.

7.    Ancient Rome
The most significant contribution to the United States government from Ancient Rome is the use of a Constitution. Known as the Twelve Tables, Rome's constitution outlined the system of government and sets of rules that leaders should follow.

8.   Ancient Rome
Another major contribution to the U.S. government from Ancient Rome was the idea that an accused individual is innocent until proven guilty in a fair trial. This is one of the key concepts of the United States court system.

9.     Ancient Rome
               Another major contribution to the U.S. government from Ancient Rome was the idea                that an accused individual is innocent until proven guilty in a fair trial. This is one of the key concepts of the United States court system.

10.    Ancient Rome
Ancient Rome, just like the United States today, used a system of welfare. In ancient Rome, both food and education could be subsidized for the poor members of society who could not afford it. We continue to use a similar system today.

11.  Ancient Rome
      The first newspaper was created in 59 BC on the orders of Julius Caesar. It was called the Roman Acta Diruna and shared news and details of upcoming events. The Acta Diruna was carved on stone or metal and displayed in public places, like the Forum of Rome. Scribes were often commissioned to make copies to be sent to important dignitaries. This contribution to written communication alone, changed the world for ever.

12.  Ancient Rome
The Roman legal system was laid out by Gaius during the Flavian emperors. It is still the basis for most European legal systems and laws.
In theses systems, laws are listed by crimes in a series of books.
In the UK and USA, Common Law is an evolved variant of the original Roman Law. In Common Law, judgements and punishments are based on precedent – the rulings made by previous judges and juries

13.  Ancient Rome
The Roman alphabet is the most widely used alphabet and writing system in the world today. This alphabet is the official script of nearly all Western European languages, some Eastern European languages and also some non-European languages. It has allowed us to communicate more easily and to standardize language and learning texts.
The alphabet was borrowed from the Greeks by the Etruscans before being developed further by the Romans. The Romans changed some of the sounds of the letters, omitted and added various characters and developed the concept of upper and lower case letters. In fact, modern day capital letters differ only very slightly from their original Roman counterparts. The Roman alphabet is probably the most widely used of the Roman contributions to the modern world.

14. Ancient Rome

The first Roman aqueduct was constructed in 312 BC by Appius Claudius Caecus. It was called Aqua Appia and supplied a water fountain sited at Rome’s cattle market. In subsequent years, Roman engineers used the same principles to build many more aqueducts, bringing water into cities and towns. Some of the aqueducts are still in use today.
The aqueduct led to the creation of public toilets, baths, a sewage system and the supply of fresh drinking water. The introduction of thermal heating to the aqueduct system enabled the further creation of heated baths, central heating and floor heating.

15.  Ancient Rome

In ancient Roman culture, the main meal of the day was known as ‘cena’. The cena was an important focus of Roman social and family life – something still enjoyed by many of us today.

During the period of the Roman Republic, the cena developed first into two courses and then, later, into three. The first course was known as gustatio, the second as primae mensaie and the third as secundae mensae. Today, many people still consume their main meal as three separate courses – a starter, main and dessert.

Overlooking all the good that has come about through Western Civilization, our children are now being told that all of this should be discarded and we should adopt Socialism because even though it has never worked anywhere it was tried, this time it would work. Think Venezuela.


They are not being taught about the contributions of Western Civilization and the freedom of Capitalism. They are being taught about the perfect world where everyone is taken care of equally, there are no homeless people, no serving children, no extravagantly rich people of seriously poor people. 

Or the consequences of Socialism.

They are not told of the consequences wherever socialism was tried.


They will not look to Venezuela and see the consequences of Socialism. A pure democracy leads to one man, one vote, one time. And then you have the dictatorship. They are whipping up racism, classism, sexism --all the isms to bring our country to the point of Revolution.

Why would Linda Sarsour be a leader of the anarchist Woman's Movement? Silent Jihad.

Does she really want Socialism- or support the Women's Movement? Or does she want to undermine the institutions of the West and create havoc so that those Muslim Jihadists already settled throughout our country can then rise up and take control? Sound foolish? Sound like I am a conspiracy nut? 

Is this any part of reason? This is a call to mob rule and total disregard to centuries of the development of a civilization that has brought the greatest good and opportunity to the greatest number. And now, because of the color of the skin (the definition of racism) of those through whom these great thoughts and institutions evolved radicals now advocate its dismantling. 

And they have control of your children's minds! Colleges of Education have been hijacked by the radical Left and our children are its goal.

In January 2015, CPUSA National Committee chairman John Bachtel published an essay in People's World stating that American Communists were eager to work with the Democratic Party in order to advance communist goals. He wrote, for instance:

"Labor and other key social forces are not about to leave the Democratic party anytime soon. They still see Democrats as the most realistic electoral vehicle to advance their agenda, especially in the national battle against the extreme right. Their main goal at this time is changing DP policies and approaches away from influences of the Wall Street wing and more conservative elements... First, we are part of building the broadest anti-ultra-right alliance possible ... This necessarily means working with the Democratic Party. Second, our objective is not to build the Democratic Party. At this stage we are about building the broad people's movement led by labor that utilizes the vehicle of the Democratic Party to advance its agenda. We are about building the movements around the issues roiling wide sections of people that can help shape election concurs and debates... We are for building movements in the electoral arena and see engagement in the electoral arena and democratic governance as a vital means to further build movements."
