What are the values driving American society?

Where do our values come from anymore?

As Americans, we share similar experiences from culture, society, and geography in some measure. Many of us have been here for generations and have a historical connection as well. Even going back to where we came from before we came to America. 

Most of us can talk about similar movies, television shows, music, sports, and historical events that shaped our lives. 

The Holy Bible used to create the majority of the values in America, yet now I would say the majority of the values come from social media. 

Social media has replaced the Holy Bible when it comes to creating the values of American society. 

Even the mainstream values before the smartphone and social media on the internet were much better than what we have now. 

When we watched a sitcom, a movie, or listened to a song, we learned values such as:

  • being honest
  • caring for family and friends
  • being a productive member of a community
  • helping someone in need
  • staying true to our marriage partner and friends
  • doing the right thing
  • having integrity
  • being humble and thoughtful
  • respecting other people
  • being modest about our sexuality
  • work hard for what you get
  • be accountable for actions and thoughts

Now, with social media creating our values, we have all but forgotten these. The new values include:

  • betray your spouse or friend if it benefits yourself
  • lie about things if it benefits yourself
  • have no shame about being a prolific fornicator
  • be a pervert and have no shame
  • be a criminal if you can get away with it
  • stab a friend in the back if it benefits yourself
  • have no shame about being a hypocrite
  • sell out your soul and values for material gain
  • have no shame about being vain and materialistic
  • have no shame about being lazy and entitled
  • allow the public to see your personal life on social media
  • gossip about other people to the public on social media

I realize we are under a sophisticated social engineering program that is conditioning us to lose our values and become degenerate, yet I wonder if people are clearly seeing the changes. 

I also realize the powers to be are targeting the younger generations that aren’t familiar with the older values, thus making it easier to program them with the degeneracy we have today. 

Still, the type of values we are being socially engineered to have now go against our conscience as human beings. 

These degenerate values are the easy road, the path of least resistance, yet they still go against what we know intrinsically as destructive and wrong. People are accountable for adopting these new values even if the culture and society (represented through social media) validate them as good and empowering. 

Even many of the older Hollywood movies have good values. The main character is usually someone we are rooting for, the plot line something we are hoping turns out well, and the climax something we are inspired by. All of this requires good character for us to feel good about the movie. 

I realize there were also many evil movies with wicked plots and themes, yet the progression of these has steadily increased over the decades. The same goes for music, television, magazines, books, and now social media. 

Everything is getting darker, values are getting more degenerate, and themes and plots more evil. 

Essentially, the social engineering program is trying to make what is good evil and what is evil good (Isaiah 5:20). They are turning everything upside down and backward. 

The fruit of this subtle change is evil, yet people can’t readily perceive the programming, nor can they conceive why this agenda is happening. 

Slowly, we have drifted from good values to now accepting degenerate values that lead to destructive thinking and behaviors. Our individual lives and communities are worse for the change. 

Most people just go along with the prevalent flow, as this benefits their ability to make money and get along with the majority of people in society. 

Just look at the majority of articles written on Medium (if they are even written by humans anymore and not AI). They simply parrot the main themes of the hive mind of society, they simply go along with the prominent themes being programmed by those who control the internet and influencing factors of society/culture. 

Most people are simply trying to gain popularity, earn money, and become an influencer of some sort with their virtual brand. Multiply this by billions of people across hundreds of social media platforms and you have a powerful social engineering tool to control the thoughts and behaviors of the masses — to create the values of the society you are trying to control. 

So, ask yourself, what are the values driving Americans as a whole and where do they come from? Then, ask yourself if those are the values you want to live by as well.

As for me and my house, we will live by the values of the Holy Bible (1611 AV KJV), which are becoming more and more the opposite of the values social media are creating for the majority of Americans. 

By the way, the values of the Holy Bible aren’t those of a theocracy in a fallen world, so going back to the Holy Roman Empire with false religion ruling isn’t going to help.

Every person has to take responsibility for the values they believe and the effects they have on others. The values taught by the inspired Holy Bible are righteous, good, and true. Hopefully, people will realize this despite the hatred the programming has instilled in them for the book.

HubPages vs. Vocal

Gaining Context I opened my account at Vocal around two years ago when I published my first article. It was a syndicated article from my golf blog, which surprisingly has done better than all other articles since. Around three months ago, I decided to give Vocal a real chance with a renewed effort and by becoming a Vocal Plus member. They enticed me with half off a year’s membership ($50 for a year, usually it is $99 annually or $10/month). Since this renewed effort, I have published nine articles; six were written originally at Vocal (four were for Vocal Challenges), and the other 3 were syndicated from elsewhere. The plan for Vocal was to publish my creative writing there originally, which meant I had to switch from HubPages where these were published originally before. The distracting ads and lackluster RPM helped make this decision, although I’ve been writing on HP for over a decade. After three months of “working” Vocal, I’ve realized it isn’t worth paying the $10/month. I’ll expl

Views are Like Customers to Writers

Writing online entails considering how many impressions, views, visitors/reads, comments, shares, and reactions each article gets. These digital assets symbolize the money made from each article. How many views did that article get — that poem, story, blog post, picture, art piece? The number will determine how much money the article made. While most writers appreciate even one single read, this doesn’t pay much. On the high end, this might bring .02 cents. Usually, around half a cent, or $5 RMP. Different Writing Platforms and Efforts At Medium views don’t turn into a specific amount of money, rather they are merely an indication of possible money — reads are more important at Medium, as they correlate closely with any money made. Each read at Medium this month made me around that .02 cent mark! The reads at Medium might not be from members, so may not make us money. Still, on average, both views and reads equal a certain estimated amount for each Medium writer. At Vocal, they make it

Oregon mother jailed for treating daughter’s cancer with homeopathic remedies

In a highly controversial case, an Oregon mother was sentenced to 90 days of jail and 3 years of probation for essentially making health decisions for her now 17-year-old daughter that the state didn’t like. The details are found in an Oregon Live article by Noelle Crombie on Feb. 27. The article explains that the mother, Christina Gale Dixon, 39, decided to treat her daughter with CBD and other homeopathic remedies instead of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery (conventional treatments for cancer). This wasn’t always the case, as her daughter, Kylee Dixon, was first diagnosed with liver cancer in 2018 and underwent three rounds of chemotherapy. The article explains that the Oregon Department of Human Services got involved in late 2018 when the mother wasn’t allowing her daughter to be treated according to the allelopathic physicians. The state then took custody of her daughter, yet allowed her to live with her mother until Christina fled with her daughter to Las Vegas to avoid a sch
