It’s graduation time for millions of spoiled, little rich kids celebrating the completion of their brainwashing. Is it too hard to believe? Not according to God’s Word, which claims “the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving.” If this is true, then how does it work?
“A mind is a terrible thing to waste,” said the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). They originated the slogan 41 years ago at a time when blacks were often brainwashed by white supremacists claiming blacks were unfit for college, when the culture was filled with supremacists. UNCF spent $1 billion advertising a slogan that denied the brainwashing, and it apparently worked – blacks are now allowed and encouraged to attend white colleges – but the black community traded one set of lies for another. Now blacks are brainwashed alongside whites by The American System that unleashes spoiled, little rich brats on the world.
The American education system is a brainwashing factory which nobody should be naïve enough to ignore. Some students are smart enough to snap out of the daze of lies, but they don’t know what to do, so they take up the cause of General Discontent called “Occupy Wall Street”. Older generations scoff at the uselessness of the Occupy cause, but their General Discontent is actually far more accurate than our protests over special causes. The Kent State riots by my generation radicalized the peace movement when four students were killed, but ending the Vietnam War still left us enslaved to The American System which unleashes spoiled, little rich brats on the world.
Every attempt to escape the brainwashing simply opens the door to another form of it. Blacks escaped the brainwashing by white supremacists, and in the 70s students rebelled against the American war machine. It should mean that blacks are “free at last” and America has stopped playing war games across the globe, but that’s hardly the case.
Brainwashed people don’t see how brainwashed they are, but the rest of the world sees it and hates American greed and arrogance. We pretend to be the moral compass for the world, but there is something fundamentally shameful about American ethics, and everyone knows it – except Americans.
Graduation day is the epitome of American brainwashing factories. Endless lines of graduates in black robes and silly hats march like clones to receive a certificate that says, “You are a very special, spoiled, little rich brat,” and they all throw their hats in the air because they’ve been assigned a special slot in the work force – the certificate says so. Later they slowly discover the emptiness of the American Dream. Now they owe a fortune in student loans to the greedy banks that devoured $11 trillion of our personal savings in 2008 and caused 8 million to go jobless, and 20 million households to go homeless.
Why can’t these graduates wave their certificates and get special treatment like they were promised? Grads are given special treatment alright – they are the ones unemployed the longest in today’s economy. But the victims still owe the criminals, because grads still owe greedy banks for their student loans, and there’s no hope for justice.
The real criminals in America are Christians who mindlessly follow our culture’s demand for more, always more, in a world suffering under horrific conditions, a world saturated with horrific persecution. Christians in Nigeria, China, India, and Muslim countries are risking everything just to meet, while Christians here are apathetic about their freedoms to study and own Bibles, to meet openly and share Christ with the world.
So Christians are losing their children to a brainwashed world promising security while delivering injustice. Surveys are now showing less than 1% of Millennials have a biblical world view – in a country where Christianity can be shared openly. Christians simply don’t care about their faith. They will not “fight the good fight” any more. Like their fellow Americans, Christians are unleashing spoiled, little rich kids on the world.
This is not just my opinion. According to Barna Research, a “troubling” generational pattern is underway among Christians that suggests “parents are not focused on guiding their children to have a biblical worldview,” Barna said.1
What are Christians doing instead? Singing songs, mostly.
“But we enjoy the Singing Worship Service, so why attack it?” people say to me all the time. The objection is self-refuting. Christians are more caught up with their own, personal Jesus than concern for the lost world around them. The only songs American Christians should sing are funeral dirges – they’re killing themselves by unleashing spoiled, little rich brats on the world.
American Christians need to return to a biblical view of The System and stop cozying up to it. The compromise is most evident by the way American Christianity handles student-age ministries. Rather than raising warriors, Christians are raising spoiled, little rich kids.
