The beginning of the fall.

I used Kipling yesterday> Recessional is an explicitly Christian poem. But the younger generation had been either become good modern athiests or were retrograde, AngloCqtholics or Catholids. We tend to forget that in their time the Inklings were the minority. From what I can find, John Spenser Muirhead had a good war, became a Birgadier, then a Lawyer, the Provost of Glasgow colleve, and a prominent legal academic. His poems were published in moderhist magaziens in the 1920s.

But this is not Christian. It is pagan. The rot started, in my view, before the first war.

Quiet

THERE is a flame within me that has stood
Unmoved, untroubled through a mist of years,
Knowing nor love nor laughter, hope nor fears,
Nor foolish throb of ill, nor wine of good.
I feel no shadow of the winds that brood, 5
I hear no whisper of a tide that veers,
I weave no thought of passion, nor of tears,
Unfettered I of time, of habitude.
I know no birth, I know no death that chills;
I fear no fate nor fashion, cause nor creed, 10
I shall outdream the slumber of the hills,
I am the bud, the flower, I the seed:
For I do know that in whate’er I see
I am the part and it the soul of me.

John Sepncer Muirhead

Definitely! There were public meetings of atheists and communists between 1900 and 1914 that created agendas that are being followed to this day.
I’ve heard, but not confirmed, that there was a meeting in 1913 in the USA that mapped out taking over education and the judiciary as a long term plan to take over the country… whether it was an explicit plan or not, the effect is the same.

@weka – Off topic, but it is not really fair to real Mormons to classify *me* as A Mormon in the sidebar! I am not a member of the CJCLDS, and never have been; have never been inside a CJCLDS temple or chapel – indeed, I don’t think I have ever met an active Mormon face-to-face (at least not since I became a Christian. I am – as I often state, a believer in the Mormon theology (albeit with several modifications) and have often written on that subject; and that was why I was given posting privileges at Junior Ganymede (although I haven’t posted there for a while, I still comment quite often). Also I do not regard myself as under CJCLDS discipline or authority – and in fact believe that that church (along with all the other large Christian denominations, although considerably less so than most) is now substantially corrupted by a de facto alliance/ pact with the worldly, globalist, leftist socio–political perspective. *Decisive* evidence (of course there is more than this) is the willing and enthusiastic endorsement of church closures in 2020 and the reason for it (i.e. physical health is The church priority), and lack of repentance for this action. Anyway, suffice to say that while I am very happy to be regarded as A Mormon in a theoretical sense, this is not what most people understand by the term!
