Counterculture Achievements Galore
Several weeks ago near end of 2012 on the radio media there was an intense discussion about the present condition of the American culture. It followed on the heels of the horrendous massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the state of Connecticut. During the discussion the cause and result of modern day behavior was completely missed. The participants completely missed the causal point: It is the counterculture philosophy which is galloping full steam ahead throughout the American culture! What the philosophy has achieved is the topic of discussion in this communication. The counterculture people deserve recognition for several achieve3ments that revolutionized the American culture.
The first achievement is the obvious fact that they were very successful in eliminating the influence of God end His Commandments from the American culture. The American culture contains millions of Godless behavior types of living people. Those people that love God, keep His Commandments, and live proper moral life are surrounded by them and affected by them.
The second achievement is that pretty much for the most part now so many people simply make up their own rule to live by, which is a clear reversal of cultural and traditional ways of living prior to 1965. All the abortions, cohabitation, divorces, sex crimes, and wanton murders, to name a few, are everyday indications of just how the American culture has deteriorated. Overloaded prisons are everywhere.
The third achievement is the way people are treated on an everyday basis. Common courtesy went the way of the dinosaur: It’s extinct. There are seldom any friendly greetings among strangers who do business in the public domain anymore. It’s a first attitude among young and old alike now. Parents who are impolite simply do not teach their children to be polite, or to say please and thank you.
The fourth achievement concerns the mode of dress of modern American females. They win the immodest and suggestive dress aword: cleavage; half bare breasts; tight and from-fitting blue jeans; visible tattoos on breasts and upper backsides. All of these achievements can even be seen in church on Sundays.
Of all the negative counterculture achievements abortion is at the top of the list. The fact the over 30 million (30,000,000) abortions in America have taken place since 1973 clearly speaks for itself. It’s simply horrendous and very much unforgivable! Thirty million women have that to deal with at their eternal life review. Wow!
The fact that so many millions of America live a Godless life and make up their own rules for living is also unthinkable. So much evil on a daily basis is so common and acceptable now. It is an upside down American culture with no end in sight, and it is so very unfair that the millions of Americans who live God’s way, keep His Commandments, and do so on a daily basis have to be surrounded and directly affected by so many negative counterculture achievements.
