Is it possible that our picture of the world is fundamentally skewed? If we want to be agents of truth, but our perceptions are themselves wrong, we could be doing more harm than good, despite our good intentions. In 1917 a group of idealistic Bolsheviks overthrew the corrupt Russian Czarist aristocracy and introduced a new Soviet government. Despite their good intentions, these Bolsheviks brought into power the most evil and brutal regime the world had ever known. The resulting USSR ended up killing tens of millions of its own citizens and enslaved, imprisoned and tortured many millions more.
The Big Picture
Western Society is being influenced by a number of groups that have sought to fill our society with their values, their world view and their interpretation of the news. Below are two of the most influential.
The Frankfurt School This explains the apparently natural shift from traditional values to "modern values".
The Chinese Communist Party This regime spends millions on propaganda and cultural influence as part of their soft war on the west.
Many of the influences on the west are opposed to Christian values. We see these left wing values promoted by our mainstream news, Hollywood, Universities and public schools. Most of us are unaware of this because we have literally been immersed in it for decades. We are like fish in salt water. We don't notice it because it seems like the norm.
The Really Big Picture
How does our worldview make a difference? (our concept of reality) It effects every part of our lives:
Our understanding of who we are
Our understanding of our life purpose
It provides the foundation of our morals.
