The barbarians are rising

“The governor of Texas should not be initiating a Christians-only prayer.”
~Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, according to the Post. Washington Post

Author H. Beam Piper, science fiction writer, in his work Space Vikings speaks of the barbarians from within society. "He says, even at their worst, they are in engaged in honest butchery compared to the nefarious do-gooders and do-nothings."

"The barbarians are rising . . . Every society rests on a barbarian base. The people who don't understand civilization, and wouldn't like it if they did. The hitchhikers. The people who create nothing, and who don't appreciate what others have created for them, and who think civilization is something that just exists and that all they need to do is enjoy what they can understand of it --- luxuries, high living standards, and easy work for high pay . . .

It wasn't the war that put Hitler into power. It was the fact that the ruling class of his nation, the people who keep things running, were discredited. The masses, the homemade barbarians, didn't have anybody to take their responsibilities for them."

We see this today in America. The rich, powerful and banksters make nothing. They live on dividends and interest. They are the hitchhikers. The barbarians, the Tea Party, know nothings who want to wreck the American society because they are "the people who don't understand civilization, and wouldn't like it if they did." They are led by Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain. The others Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman and Ron Paul have a degree of integrity but are still willing to sell their souls to the devil.

If a man like Rick Perry or a woman like Michele Bachmann can reach the white house we are finished as a nation. The day of a statesman leading America will have been over.
