How To Destroy A Nation

How To Destroy A Nation


The following contain short excerpts from a speech on how to destroy a nation given by former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm to an immigration conference early in 2019 in Washington, D.C. They also include my own comments, adding to the content of the points made by Governor Lamm.

  1. First, no nation has ever survived the tension, conflict and antagonism of competing languages and cultures. Bilingual, multicultural societies that do not insist on assimilation soon experience turmoil, oppression of minorities, violence, tragedy, and ethnic rebellion and eventually a crisis of national existence as minorities press for autonomy and independence.
  2. Second, promote multiculturalism, mass immigration and encourage immigrants to maintain their native cultures. Insist on the idea that all cultures are equal and that any real or perceived failure in a minority class is due to the prejudice and discrimination of the majority. Any other explanation of failure or unequal success or prosperity of a minority class is not acceptable. If necessary, pass laws to give minorities supposed equal opportunity that, in effect, create special opportunities beyond the existing, historical opportunities of the majority.
  3. Next, celebrate diversity and insist on tolerance of all subclasses. Deny the dominance of the majority of native citizens and what it means to be an American. Enforce the right of subgroups to emphasize and celebrate their cultural differences, thus promoting non-assimilation.
  4. Then create a welfare class to slowly destroy the incentive of subgroups to take advantage of existing opportunities. Infiltrate the education system to teach these subgroups they are, in fact, disadvantaged. Create an unassimilated, undereducated, frustrated and eventually antagonistic underclass of minorities that have a high dropout rate from school, higher crime rates, higher drug use and family disintegration; and convince them it is all the fault of the majority class.
  5. Use blackmail and the threat of boycotts to push foundations and corporations to give large amounts of money to promote ethnic identity and create a culture of “victimology”. Convince minorities their lack of success or obvious cultural failures are the fault of the majority and create a grievance industry to perpetuate the blame and grievances.
  6. Encourage dual citizenship creating divided loyalty; celebrate diversity over unity and stress differences rather than similarities. History proves great nations have been destroyed by this and it is happening today in Europe, Africa and here in America. Time has shown us that cultural divisions become political divisions that fracture and destroy nations. E. Pluribus Unum is still found on our coinage, it means, “From many, one”. This principle built the greatest nation in the history of the world. Global elitists are now trying to destroy it.
  7. Put any discussion of the points above off limits. Anything negative related to diversity and mass immigration in public discourse would be met with charges of “racist” or “xenophobe” (fear of foreigners) to stifle any such discussion or debate. Make it impossible to enforce immigration laws. Rebrand “illegal immigration” as “undocumented immigration” to confuse the issue (they just have not been allowed go through the process yet, “people cannot be illegal” they say). Promote the idea that since immigration has been good for America in the past (although due to reasonable assimilation), it is good for America today, ignoring the impact of uncontrolled, mass, illegal immigration and the negative effect of attitudes and policies that encourage and perpetuate it and actually discourage assimilation.
  8. Lastly, try to censor any published work exposing the negative effects of multiculturalism and diversity, falsely claiming them to be dangerous and destructive to the ideals that have made America one of the greatest, most prosperous and influential nations in history – a deceptive lie.


Now let me illustrate the pure wisdom of God and explain the reasons why He made provisions in the past to prevent this destruction and the fact that these provisions will be strictly enforced in the future to prevent division, hatred, violence and war and make universal peace and prosperity the norm for all nations under His personal governance throughout all eternity.


I’ll try to make this brief. It begins in Genesis 10:25 with the name, Peleg, and the meaning and explanation of his name, it means “division; for in his days was the earth divided”. Then verse 32 says, “These are the families of the sons of Noah, their generations and the nations formed by them: and by these were the nations dispersed over the earth after the flood.” When you break down chapter 10, you find the sons of Noah: Japheth, who settled to the north (Europe and Asia); Ham, who settled to the south in what would become Africa; and Shem, who stayed in the areas around Palestine and the Mediterranean Sea.


I underlined “after the flood” above to come back and explain why this division happened then and how. Genesis 6:1-7 explains that the Lord saw the wickedness on the earth, that every imagination and intention of men was continually evil and He regretted that he had made man on the earth and was grieved. So, He purposed to destroy mankind from the earth. The resulting flood and the deliverance of Noah and his family (including his three sons) then follows in Genesis, chapters 6-11.


This includes the narrative in Genesis 11 regarding the tower of Babel and the re-emergence of the evil of man following the flood (by the descendants of Shem). So, verses 6-9 tell us the Lord saw that there was no limit to the evil they would do (vs. 6), confounded their language so they couldn’t understand one another (separating them in groups (vs. 7), then scattered them over the face of the whole earth (vss. 8-9).


This brings us to Deuteronomy 32:5-8. The context of this passage is that Israel, after finally going into the land God had promised, would corrupt themselves by breaking their covenant of faithfulness to Him and going after a perverse form of idol worship. This is verse 7 and 8, “Remember the days of old; think about the years of many generations in the past. Ask your father, he will show you; ask the old men and they can tell you. About the time the Most High gave to the nations their allotted lands, when He separated the children of men and at that point in time established the (eternal) boundaries for (His) people (Israel).”


Moving forward to Acts 17:24-26, again, the context is important. Paul is in Greece and notices shrines dedicated to the “unknown god”. So, he attempts to explain just Who this God is that is unknown to them; He is “the God Who formed the earth and everything in it, the Lord of heaven and earth Who does not dwell in man-made shrines. And He cannot be given anything by human service, as though He needed anything; for He is the One Who gives life and breath and all things to all people. And He made from one common source, all the different nations of men to be settled over the face of the earth, having determined beforehand their times of existence and the fixed boundaries of their habitation.


In this verse “nations” is ethnos, from which we get our English words ethnic and ethnicity, words that describe a group of people who share common and distinct cultural characteristics (language, history, traditions, etc.). In other words, it always was God’s intention to keep all ethnic groups separate; and in the future, Millennial Kingdom He will begin to enforce that intention to prevent the multiculturalism that causes all the problems described earlier.


This is the Old Testament reference foretelling the same millennial activity. Isaiah 2:2-4 says, “In the last days the mountain on which the Lord’s temple stands will be the highest of all the mountains, and all nations will stream into it. Many peoples will come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us His ways, so we can walk in His paths. His instruction will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many people groups. Then they will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they study to train for war any more.”  


This will establish the worldwide peace and prosperity that will be ushered into the eternal kingdom, when the Father comes to the earth with the Heavenly City New Jerusalem to dwell with men (Revelation 21 and 22). This is Revelation 21:24, “And the nations (ethnos) will live in its light and the leaders of the earth will bring into the city their glory.” And in this context “glory” is doxa, a reference to the reality of the true peace, prosperity, contentment and happiness experienced in eternity, the realization that God is true and has kept His word in everything He had promised.


My point in all this is that the “wisdom” of man and his best (or worst) intentions has historically caused dissention, discrimination, oppression, violence, ethnic cleansing, war and the death of untold millions of people. But God in His perfect wisdom has always had a better plan - one that would have prevented all of these things that have marked the history of mankind. But starting with His earthly, Millennial Kingdom that will begin to change and continuing on into eternity all nations will enjoy perfect peace and prosperity. Thankfully, the time will come when the wisdom of man will no longer be followed, the pure wisdom of God will reign supreme.
