Why Western Civilization Is On The Verge Of Self-Destuction. In A Nutshell.

I came across the following article on Yahoo:

Prince Speaks for Kardashian-Weary Nation: ‘Get Off the Stage!’
Posted Tue Feb 8, 2011 8:18am PST by Caryn Ganz

Last night at Madison Square Garden, Prince did what so many of us want to do, but simply cannot do: make Kim Kardashian go away. At the end of each of the singer’s Welcome 2 America concerts in New York, he’s invited VIPs onstage to dance — and in Cyndi Lauper’s case, belt a few notes. Yesterday one of his stellar backup singers took Kim by the hand and led her onstage, saying, “Look who I got.” Prince busted a move; Kim stood and laughed. So he dismissed her with a neck-snapping, “Get off the stage!” as the crowd roared. “Welcome 2 America,” he added, scanning the audience for another girl who “can get busy.”

Stars who have successfully boogied with Prince at MSG include Sherri Sheppard, Naomi Campbell, Alicia Keys, Whoopi Goldberg, Jamie Foxx, Tavis Smiley, Cornel West, and Spike Lee. Yes, Sherri Sheppard, the same woman who horrified Prince on national TV by proclaiming on “The View,” “I have wanted to make love to you for my whole life.” He’s even serenaded Leighton Meester with “I Love You But I Don’t Trust You Anymore.”

Kim’s defense, mounted on Twitter (of course): “I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!” She added that the Purple One gave her another chance, and she did, indeed, get funky. “This time I redeemed myself! We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!”

In truth, she should feel honored — because of Prince’s staunch anti-Internet stance, no fresh footage of him has managed to hit the web in years. In 2007, the singer even got into a fight with his fans when he pulled down images of everything from Prince-inspired tattoos to photos of his album covers — and when his devotees got angry, he wrote a diss track called “PFUnk” that includes the line, “I love all y’all, don’t you ever mess with me no more.” Thanks to the Kardashian smackdown, we got another glimpse of our favorite funkateer in action!

Well, there’s nothing about this article that is remotely important or meaningful.

What IS a testament to the rapidly approaching extinction of the late great USA and the Western Civilization it epitomizes is at the bottom:

The word “vacuous” comes to mind.  Can you not understand why radical Islam is exploding, given such a completely airheaded altnernative?

And yet this story came out just today, and 2,841 people believed it was so significant that they felt the need to comment about it.  And, good Lord, I came back three minutes later just to recheck, and the number had risen to 2,918 comments.

Now, I don’t waste my time with this kind of mind-sucking drivel.  But I can’t remember reading an important article about anything even remotely important that fired up this level of hype and attention.

It’s like the Animal Farm society is already here, living and breathing, in our midst.  And its zeitgeist has taken over our feeble little atrophied minds.  And every day, there is less and less and less about this civilization that is worth fighting for.  It has become a hollow facade, with everything that truly made it great carved out by political correctness, the postmodernist purge of truth and meaning and the progressive social-engineering doctrine of mutliculturalism.

The spine that made everything great in our democracy possible has been ripped out of our civilization.  The document that made our Constitution possible said, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  Now nothing remains to provide a foundation for anything.

Except, of course, whether Kim Kardashian should have been kicked off the stage or not.

We are in a great sucking vortex of moral idiocy – trapped in a depraved culture that has tragically become like a giant reciprocating engine that just drives us downward and ever downward dumber and dumber with every stroke of its constantly pumping cylinders.

The Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible sums it up marvelously in its second verse: “Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities!  All is vanity.”

The beast is coming, the Antichrist warned about by that same Bible for some 2,600 years.  Everything is amazingly in place, including the technology for the mysterious “mark of the beast.”  Our rotted world system will soon collapse.  And when it implodes, it will do so with stunning speed in a matter of days.  Chaos will follow.  Economic collapse, wars and fighting, disease and death, just as Revelation 6 describes.  And this political beast, this Antichrist, this big government visionary will emerge onto the scene claiming to have all the answers.  Everything he does will appear to have the magic touch.  And the whole world will literally worship him in place of God.

We have already had a taste of this frenzied idolatry in the person of Barack Hussein Obama.  But what is coming will dwarf the empty “hope and change” of Obama.

And does anyone seriously believe that this present generation of vacuous amoral fools won’t worship him just as the Book of Revelation says?

What the Bible prophesies is no longer a collection of fanciful fable; it has become the most reasonable description of where are world is truly headed.

    I hate the fact that I agree with you. I fear for my 7 grand-children…but I am comfortable that they will grow up with Jesus.

    Rockwall Tim,

    Truth is of course is what it is. Sometimes the truth is that someone has cancer. In this case, Western civilization and the planet earth have cancer.

    I’m sure I don’t have to tell you to pray for your grandchildren every single day and pray to the Lord that they are/will be saved and be able to meet the Lord in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

    Often, as I glance at ‘headlines’ I feel as you do, though I could not have expressed it so eloquently. I read the absolutely ‘stupid’ things that the media pushes as ‘news’, and I am disgusted.
    Why in the world do I care what is happening to Linsday Lohan??? If I never heard the name Kim Kardashian or saw a pic of her, I would actually be grateful. The amount of attention these depraved people get is just plain sickening. They are cancerous to our society.

    Sin is very grave and there is only one andidote for it, the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.
    Yes, the days are very dark and evil. Jesus Christ is the only WAY out of this sin sick world and what is to come.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    The New Testament continually warns us about “the world” which is currently under Satan’s control. “The world” refers to a world/worldly system which seeks to point us anywhere but to Christ.

    And the fact of the matter is that these people who fill their souls with Lindsay Lohan or Kim Kardashian or whatever the latest fad is do so because they don’t want to fill their souls with Jesus Christ.

    Such people will believe ANY lie rather than face the truth.

    Hi Mike. I’m enjoying reading many of your posts, as we have several of the same views and opinions. You’re absolutely right about our society. We’re shallow as can be. We are broke as a nation, the Euro is practically dead, GERMANY IS BROKE!, Japan is in ruins, and all we care about is Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction and who Kim Kardashian is dating THIS WEEK! It does make me sick to my stomach, but this was all written about! God allowed Pharoah’s heart to be hardened towards the Israelites and He is handing us over as a nation to our lusts. We need to wake up. The truth is that prophecy is being fulfilled at an alarmingly rapid pace. WAKE UP AMERICA! JESUS COMES BACK FOR HIS CHURCH AT A TIME WHEN YOU THINK NOT! The democratic agenda is destroying our nation UNDER GOD. Watch and pray, invite Jesus into your hearts as your personal Savior, and pay attention to world news. We don’t have a lot of time left!

    When you say “we have several of the same views and opinions,” you are quite right, based on your 6:38 a.m. post.

    I completely agree with every single word.

    We are in the era of the Laodicean church that Christ described in Revelation 3:14. It is amazing that – as prophecy is being incredibly fulfilled – it is happening during an era in which the Christian church is largely too weak and too self-absorbed to either notice or care.

    Christ is coming soon. And we need to be looking up and then looking around for someone to tell before its too late.
