In May of 2004, I watched a program on C-Span that had a couple of military strategists discussing means and methods of the strategies of ‘war within the context of everything else’. At the time, I didn’t fully understand the implications of what they were saying, but I grasped the concepts enough to be able to apply them to what was happening to our country. I wrote a commentary on it titled ‘Reclaim Your Center of Gravity’ which is why I still have the details of what they were talking about. The following are paragraphs from that commentary:

The strategy was described perfectly by a former IRS employee who wrote a book on IRS tactics. “Find out what they love and take it. Find out what they fear and threaten them with it”….. The moneyed elite control the political parties and the messages. Campaign finance money is the tool to control our representatives. They own the media and they finance ‘advocacy groups’ to manipulate the public. Class warfare is used to pit the middle class against the poor; the religious against the secular; whites against minorities.

Did you ever wonder where the wackos of PETA get the money to campaign against your steak dinner? Did you know that while the ‘radical environmentalists’ were fighting to save the snail darter (a fish nobody ever heard of), the mighty redwoods of California were being chopped down? Where does the money for these nonsense lawsuits come from? And how about the ‘Creationists’ who fought to prevent evolution from being taught in schools? And what about NAMBLA, a group that is maximally offensive to almost everybody?

These groups are insurgents financed by the moneyed elite. Steven Metz, an expert in insurgencies described it this way: A successful insurgency doesn’t need a popular uprising. They only need a small percentage of active supporters. They need the public to be so afraid of them or to be so turned off that they are willing to be passive - to stay out of the whole thing.

The insurgencies against the American People have been very successful. We have a high percentage of people who are so turned off that they don’t even bother to vote. The remainder has been divided just about 50-50. The insurgents have generated such fear and loathing on both sides that we think only in term of black and white. Paraphrasing what Steven Metz said, “If we think about the future as only this choice or that choice, we are never going to understand the essence of the conflict, and we will never be able to craft an appropriate strategy”. The Democrats and Republicans have constructed such a world for us. They have built tunnels through which we view the world and it prevents us from understanding the essence of the conflict. The essence is that the moneyed elite have declared war on the American middle class.

Since we are now tightly divided, the war is moving to the next stage. Andrew Krepinevich, of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, provided the description of this stage: “What is the center of gravity of your adversary? What is The Thing that if I deny my adversary, I will win this conflict? They will not be able to sustain their opposition. They will not have the capability or the will to do so.” That is what is happening now. Our ‘Centers of Gravity’ are under attack.

What are our centers of gravity?

1.  Your job.  Your ability to make a living. Every job that can be exported is being exported.  At the same time, foreign workers are being imported to take knowledge jobs and illegal aliens are walking across the border.  Members of Congress support this betrayal of American citizens and the media seems not to notice the treason. 

2.  Christianity.   This is a Christian country.  If one listens to the media, one would think that Christians are the interlopers and secular humanism and atheism are the norm.  Every religion but Christians have a right to practice their religion in public spaces but the display of the Ten Commandments is 'offensive'. 

3.  The family.  The family is under attack by the cultural marxists.  Why?  Because the family is the strongest social unit.  It's easier to control individuals than it is to control families.  Men are being marginalized and their stature diminished.  Women are being elevated under the guise of 'empowering' them to rise from poverty.  This is a classic example of how the social engineers twist truth.  Female poverty is the result of the break up of the family.  If the social engineers were really interested in solving the female poverty problem they would do everything possible to strengthen the family unit - not tear it apart.
