Terry Melanson | 2010-05-20 - In Europe and North America, “culture war” was the socio-political preoccupation of the mid- to late-19th Century. However, the struggle for control of the educational establishment actually began a hundred years earlier during the Enlightenment.

Critics who think that the U.S. dollar will be replaced by some new global currency are perhaps thinking too small.
On the world horizon looms a new global currency that could replace all paper currencies and the economic system upon which they are based.
The new currency, simply called Carbon Currency, is designed to support a revolutionary new economic system based on energy (production, and consumption), instead of price. Our current price-based economic system and its related currencies that have supported capitalism, socialism, fascism and communism, is being herded to the slaughterhouse in order to make way for a new carbon-based world.
t is plainly evident that the world is laboring under a dying system of price-based economics as evidenced by the rapid decline of paper currencies. The era of fiat (irredeemable paper currency) was introduced in 1971 when President Richard Nixon decoupled the U.S. dollar from gold. Because the dollar-turned-fiat was the world’s primary reserve asset, all other currencies eventually followed suit, leaving us today with a global sea of paper that is increasingly undesired, unstable, unusable.
The deathly economic state of today’s world is a direct reflection of the sum of its sick and dying currencies, but this could soon change.

The words of one woman explain a great deal about what is happening in our world today, including the recent Missouri Highway Patrol report on militia activity that caused such a stir among conservatives and libertarians that it had to be withdrawn.
But before we identify the woman, let me remind you about Auguste Comte, the crazy Frenchman, who in 1851 published the first volume of his System of Positive Polity. In it he boasted:
“The object of our philosophy is to direct the spiritual reorganization of the civilized world. . . we may begin at once to construct that system of morality under which the final regeneration of Humanity will proceed.” P, 35, 36

The crazy Frenchman died long before IQ tests were concocted, but had they been available in the early 1800’s his score might have been one of the highest of all time. However, even high IQ nerds can have mental breakdowns, and also minds full of nutty and destructive ideas. The Frenchman’s nutty idea was to control the future of the whole world and all people–not just in his own lifetime, but forever. He expected to be in control long after he was dead because once his system was accepted, he claimed, it could never be destroyed.
The best thing to do about the crazy Frenchman and his loony ambitions would have been to ignore them. However, in his lifetime and since his death in 1857 there have been opportunists of all description who liked the idea of designing the future—especially since the crazy Frenchman wrote thousands of pages to explain every step needed to accomplish the goal. He did the heavy philosophical thinking and planning. All that the followers and lesser lights had to do was read the books and stick to the plan.

We have founded the new Science of Sociology, and as a deduction from Sociology, the Universal Religion. Auguste Comte, System of Positive Polity (SPP), Vol.2, 1852, 344.
The final blow was inevitably given to Theology . . . when the establishment of my system of Sociology cut from under it its old title to teach Morality and direct Society . . .SPP, Vol. 2, 290.
In a word the new doctrine will institute the worship of Woman, publicly and privately, in a far more perfect way than has ever before been possible. It is the first permanent step towards the worship of Humanity. SPP, Vol. I, 1851, P.2
Consequently it is the primary condition of social reorganization to put an end to the state of utter revolt which the Intellect maintains against the Heart . . . Positivism has at last overcome the immense difficulties of this task . . . every part of our nature is brought under the regenerating influence of the worship of Humanity. Thus a new spiritual power will arise . . . better calculated than Catholicism to engage the support of women which is so necessary to its efficient action on society. SPP, Vol. I, 1851, P. 285-287

[...] In seeking to learn more about Bellamy and the influences that helped to shape his thoughts, I discovered that he had been profoundly affected by the writings of a man named Auguste Comte. Having never heard of Comte, I went to my 1910 Werner Encyclopædia (American edition of Britannica), and had my second unsettling experience.
Comte devoted his entire life to blueprinting a philosophical SYSTEM which could be used to sanction total control over all the people of the world for all time—eliminating and/or destroying all contrary philosophies and religions, particularly Christianity.
