How our government has corrupted our nation
Corruption is defined as dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power, typically involving bribery, or the action of making someone or something morally depraved.
Many good people may work in the government. When a government is a relatively small one consuming let say no more than a quarter of GDP and the government jobs provide about the same level of living as that for an ordinary citizen, then this government is what is needed in a truly free society. Such small governments America had in its historic Judeo-Christian past.
However, any small government has a natural “human” yearning to become more powerful and well off economically. It is being done by taking power and wealth from the people. For about the last half-century the American government has been working on achieving this goal, and now America has it: the truly big – powerful and wealthy – government.
The American government has become a truly big one by corrupting the people – by dividing the fairly unified nation as it was in the past into numerous socially and economically oppressed groups, falsely convincing them that they are oppressed and providing them with variety of government “goodies” as a sort of compensation. The normal natural differences, which should peacefully exist in any nation, are transformed into antagonistic differences, which require government protection and help, such as for example differences
by race (blacks vs. whites),
by immigration status (legal vs. illegal),
by wealth (rich vs. poor),
by sex (men vs. women),
by sexual orientation (LBGT vs. “normal”),
by age (the youth vs. the elderly),
and even by historic monuments (politically right and wrong ones).
Below are some examples.
Corrupting the family
In the historic Judeo-Christian past of America, a family was a spiritual unit with defined duties of everybody in the family where everybody cared of the others in family not because of fear of punishment but rather because of love and respect. Of course, some families were not perfect but the neighbors and the church were enough influential to be respected judges to move things in a right direction.
The big government has changed all that. Now a family is a legal unit where the government prescribes the rights and responsibilities of everybody (wife, husband, and children) and punish for violating the family-related laws.
Corrupting the judicial system
In the historic Judeo-Christian past of America, the judges and judicial courts did not judge the laws approved by the elected legislators – they judged whether the laws were implemented as they were written. The people were assessing the effectiveness of the laws made by the elected legislators – not the judges. If the people did not like what the legislators have done, the people would not reelect them.
The big government has changed all that. Now an unelected judge can declare any law approved by the elected legislators to be unconstitutional and stop its implementation.
The big government has corrupted the judicial system of the country to suppress the will of “We the People” and get more power for itself – more power let the big government redistribute material wealth from “We the People” to them the big government.
Corrupting the intimate human relations
In the historic Judeo-Christian past of America, the love/sex relations between man and woman ware intimate and personal – not for the news media or government regulations. Of course, there were cases of molestation, rape, and violence but all that was considered the sin to be condemned in the family and community – everybody knew all that was the sin!
The big government has changed all that. Nowadays love/sex relations, molestation, rape, and violence are not the spiritual sins anymore – they are the ordinary legal items used for publicity, making money and fighting political opponents.
The big government has corrupted the love/sex relationships between man and woman to get more power for itself and further suppress “Us the People”.
Corrupting the morality
In the historic Judeo-Christian past of America, We the People did not need the government instructions on how to decide what should be considered GOOD and what should considered BAD or even EVIL – our Judeo-Christian Torah/Bible-guided morality was the supreme judge on all that.
The big government has corrupted the morality as well. Now what is GOOD and BAD is being legislated.
Corrupting the news media

In the historic Judeo-Christian past, we all were individually different but equal in the image and likeness of God with the opportunity to reach our individual best with our own talents and labors. Now – by the order of our big god-like government – we all still different but unable to reach our best without the all-mighty-government help.
Could We the People get back to our glorious Judeo-Christian past? It might be possible if We the People support those who are fighting for it.
