Ronald Reagan's Secret Rabbit-In-Hat Plan To Subvert Our Society So Much That David Brooks Now Appears As A Serious Philosopher

Ronald Reagan and the occultist: The amazing story of the thinker behind his sunny optimism

Yes, Virginia, we're here in American due to a secret society's desire for power, eminence and riches.

And freedom. Don't forget freedom!

Ronald Reagan often spoke of America’s divine purpose and of a mysterious plan behind the nation’s founding. “You can call it mysticism if you want to,” he told the Conservative Political Action Conference in 1974, “but I have always believed that there was some divine plan that placed this great continent between two oceans to be sought out by those who were possessed of an abiding love of freedom and a special kind of courage.” These were remarks to which Reagan often returned. He repeated them almost verbatim as president before a television audience of millions for the Statue of Liberty centenary on July 4, 1986.
When touching on such themes, Reagan echoed the work, and sometimes the phrasing, of occult scholar Manly P. Hall.
From the dawn of Hall’s career in the early 1920s until his death in 1990, the Los Angeles teacher wrote about America’s “secret destiny.” The United States, in Hall’s view, was a society that had been planned and founded by secret esoteric orders to spread enlightenment and liberty to the world.

Because without the initial nonsense being pounded into us daily by the media (remember poor, ridiculed, truth-telling Jimmy Carter?), we would never have intellectually degenerated to the point of listening solemnly to real nonsense.

With all the other nonsense going on in this country, it's amazing (but of course expected) that anyone with other things to do would find the time to denounce Colorado's legal marijuana experiment.
Yet here they come, luminaries like MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, publishing mogul Tina Brown, and Yale blowhard-in-residence David Brooks, all hot to build a Wall of Decency around the New American Menace. They are the 21st-century version of the Anti-Saloon League, gathering now to denounce the perils of the legal recreational joint.
Brown put it this way, in a tweet:

. . . legal weed contributes to us being a fatter, dumber, sleepier nation even less able to compete with the Chinese
Right. Because marijuana, not China's bottomless supply of slave labor, is what's responsible for the West's growing trade imbalance.

Scarborough also went the "pot makes you stupid" route, although he essentially admitted to achieving that intellectual distinction himself without the benefit of even trying the drug:

I mean, seriously, it just makes you dumb. Pot just makes you dumb . . . [Although] never once did I say, 'Hey man, that looks like something I want to do . . .'
Brooks, predictably, made legalization, like pretty much everything else he writes about, a sign of America's ongoing moral collapse. He also admitted to smoking pot in his youth, and although this is hard to imagine, he even claimed he had fun doing it.

Fun? My guess is that it's just another self-serving lie from one who tells so many. His conversation sounds more like someone who missed out on the good times and wants to claim that he was actually there. Being silly and smoking pot before he sobered up and decided to lecture everyone else on its civilization-wrecking dangers.
