AMERICA'S INSIDIOUS DESCENT TOWARDS THE THIRD WORLD
By Christopher G. Adamo
Were that the case, the overt threat would be obvious and recognizable. America could certainly rally and respond with sufficient force to decisively win the battle. But no such events are taking place. In their stead, a much less dramatic scenario promises far greater detriment to the country, though its protracted nature renders it less shocking, and therefore more likely to succeed. In fact, in many respects, it already has.
A far better picture of America’s future can be seen in the formerly tidy and wholesome town of Lexington, Nebraska, situated as it is in the prime of the Heartland. Over the years, it metamorphosed to a horrendous degree. No doubt, had its inhabitants been forewarned of its fate a mere two decades ago, none would have believed the transformation to be within the realm of possibility.
Once a prim and quiet farm town, Lexington’s major industry was, for many years, a New Holland tractor factory, which brought to the town the stability of America’s former manufacturing prowess. Many of its residents were employed there, with decent paying and skilled jobs. But in 1986, New Holland outsourced, and the plant was subsequently sold and converted to a meat packing facility, whereupon the local workers were systematically supplanted by a massive importation of illegal aliens.
Initial changes to the character of the town were subtle. Doors that once had been safely left open all night were now locked. Lawn furniture and bicycles no longer adorned the yards, since they might not be there in the morning. Nevertheless, the resilient townspeople made necessary adjustments and attempted to continue with their lives.
As the influx increased however, the degree to which the former charm of Lexington was eventually eradicated was astounding. Its fate should send shudders through the spine of any throughout the rest of the nation who hope for a country to bequeath to their children.
Much of the town now reflects the squalor not previously seen this side of the Mexican border. Even in the town’s modernized zone, which passes just south of Lexington near I-80, businesses reflect the ethnic tidal wave that has overwhelmed it.
It is all but impossible for American youths to gain employment at the local fast food franchises, since virtually all business behind the counters is conducted in Spanish, making it difficult to avoid the disturbing notion that businesses might eventually post signs saying: “Americanos need not apply.” The town has inarguably become Balkanized.
Yet, Lexington is hardly an isolated example. Nor is it among the most severe examples that have ravaged traditional America. Rather, it is striking only in that it so starkly represents the plight of much of America’s southern border, while being vastly separated from that region. If this can happen in Nebraska, no part of the country remains immune to the ravages of such an incursion.
A similar disaster looms over America’s food supply, and may be much more far reaching, since it is not confined to any geographical location. Its onset will not be heralded by guards showing up at the front door to enforce changes in the state food regulations, or demanding that hapless citizens only patronize the state store.
Rather, the entirety of available food will gradually degrade, and, in fact, already has, with the ominous collaboration of the United States government.
For example, Americans are being purposefully denied the ability to know the origin of the beef they eat. “Country of Origin Labeling” (COOL), an essential facet of keeping America’s beef producers competitive on the world market, has been systematically stonewalled at the highest levels of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
For some time now, the Department of Agriculture, along with multinational corporate interests, have worked feverishly to eradicate quality differences between domestic and foreign beef supplies, while preventing consumers from knowing that those differences exist. While free trade advocates rightly decry “protectionism,” the current agenda demonstrates nothing short of protectionism for the foreign beef producers.
From the recent pet-food catastrophe, to the revelations of toxins in Chinese made toothpaste, along with seafood imports that were produced in the most unsanitary of conditions, Americans now face renewed risks to their health that many decades ago had been eliminated from domestic production. Yet, as time goes on, the food and health industries reflect less and less of America’s formerly high standards.
If pragmatism prevails above all else as the ultimate driving force behind the “global economy,” the food supplies and commodities of other nations will never be lifted to America’s former standards. Instead, America’s food supplies, and, in consequence, its entire standard of living, will sink to that of the rest of the world.
It is of little comfort that such incidents are, at present, fairly isolated. At one time, they would have been unheard of. A dangerous first step has been taken in the direction of acceptable risk and degradation where none would have been allowed in the past. Eventually all supplies will decline in quality as producers seek to compete against ultra-cheapened imports.
It is easy enough to allow these problems to expand, and then declare them “unmanageable,” as is reflected in the callous indifference of the U.S. government to the southern border invasion and the importation of sub-standard beef.
More alarming still is that the law itself changing, ever more resembling the role of law within Third World tyrannies. No longer the “glue” by which a free society retains its cohesion, the law is ever more being used as it is in the “undeveloped world,” where it is a means of manipulating and controlling the masses. The total lack of enforcement of America’s southern border is itself reflective of a banana republic.
“Justice” has been totally abominated, with honorable border guards serving jail time, while border-jumping criminal thugs go free. The legal fate of each group is no longer determined on basis of any harm the individuals involved might have inflicted on decent society, but rather on the threat they pose to the established order.
Fortunately, Americans yet have time to fix things. If they fully awaken to the impending danger, they will realize that they still retain the option next election cycle of “throwing the bums out.”
“Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.” So reads the American Declaration of Independence, a document written only fifteen months after the citizens of another Lexington, realizing that no other justice was to be forthcoming, took matters into their own hands.
