Read Genesis 3 for proper context. It's very short.
Diverting attention from the big picture to little things.
The original temptation in the garden distracted from what God had commanded, and emphasized something smaller, something immediate, something man could see and smell and touch. Disregard everything else for the moment, said the Tempter; just look at the shear beauty and attractiveness of the actual fruit.
Diverting attention from looking outward to looking inward.
While attention is temporarily diverted from God and His single simple commandment, consider the offered possibility that you may be like God, if you only partake of the fruit. Where attention previously was diverted from the commandment to the fruit, now, attention is further diverted to self. And Self then becomes all important, to the exclusion of everything outside of self.
That is the beginning point. Once past the beginning point, the strategy of the Tempter switches to a program of Desensitization of any sense of sin, which necessarily includes a desensitization to the importance of God, of Good, of Nature and of Truth. Because they are all related and interdependent. Man cannot oppose one without eventually opposing all.
Marxist Global Strategies of Cultural Destruction for Tyrannical Rule.
Marxism aims at the total destruction of all existing social and political order of things everywhere on earth. It seeks the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. It seeks the end of private property, and the union of Democratic Parties of all countries to achieve that end. Karl Marx himself said so.
The first Marxist path to tyranny is violent revolution. As shown in the Marxism Pages, fomenting violent revolution has rarely worked, and it has never worked where people are good, nationally secure and flourishing.
The chief recruiting aid for converting citizens to revolutionaries is the false promise of Communist Utopia, which is a quite impossible system that cannot exist and never has existed for very many months in the real practical world. Nevertheless, many of low intellect believe in it.
Slow, Steady, Progressive Marxist Cultural Destruction.
Without abandoning violent Revolution as a path to tyranny, Marxism has adopted a much more successful overall strategy, called Cultural Marxism. Through steady infiltration and subversion of academia, science, education, entertainment, journalism and politics, it "teaches" the false goodness of Marxist principles, and the false badness of any opposition to Marxist principles. What is worse, it desensitizes national populations to Marxism's anti-nation overall agenda.
It does this by demonizing, through disinformation, nations, governments, religions, institutions, authority, etc., while promoting all sorts of culturally destructive "values". To the extent that politics and government is infiltrated and subverted, they do this legally, even through the legislation of culturally destructive law.
Desensitization blurs the lines between Godliness and ungodliness, good and evil, normal and abnormal, natural and unnatural, true and false. It turns everything into shades of gray, even as it turns thought inward, rather than outward.
Don't look so much at Marxism's main strategy; look instead at how you might benefit from a program of Redistribution. Look at how unfair it is that someone has more than you have. You deserve a bigger piece of the global pie. Why, it is unjust that you should have less than someone else. Coveting is now good; it is the new norm. It is even legally encouraged from above, by professional politicians.
Modern science now allows more sex without responsibility, and, science tells us, humankind is overpopulating an ever increasingly "unsustainable" planet. Therefore, the distracting and desensitizing lies of Cultural Marxism now have whole nations willingly contracepting, aborting, euthanizing and homosexualizing themselves to below their own population replenishment levels. Which is to say, Western nations are willingly and happily taking themselves out of existence, and not so slowly. Committing national and racial suicide, in sync with the attendant destruction of their own national moralities.
And, not coincidentally, national economies are being destroyed.
Islamic Global Strategies of Cultural Destruction for Tyrannical Rule.
Islam aims at the total conversion, subjugation or death of all existing human beings everywhere on earth. It seeks the forcible
overthrow of all non-Islamic nations and religions. The end goal of Islam is a world in submission to Allah. This is Islam's very purpose for being. Mohammed himself said so.
The first Islamic path to tyranny is Jihad, or Holy War. As shown in the Islam Pages, Islamic expansion through Jihad was halted by the Crusades and later battles in Europe, and the last last Islamic Caliphate was taken apart after World War I.
Having been beaten back into "secular" Islamic nations, as in Turkey, or into Islamic nations that do not openly or overtly practice Jihad against the world, all of these non-secular government Islamic lands share two things in common.
While national Jihad programs may be hidden, and while the Jihad may not be direct, actual Jihad will be supported, with money, with proxy-wars in other lands, with support and cooperation with other Jihadist nations or groups. That is what Islam is about; the Koran and the Imams insist upon it.
Slow, Steady, Progressive, Islamic "Civilization Jihad".
Taking a page from Cultural Marxism and modifying it for the advancement of Islamic Jihad, the Moslem Brotherhood either invented, or stirred into life, the Jihadist Movement now known as Civil Jihad, or, Jihad Through Migration.
They would overpopulate Western nations, and then take them over.
That's the real reason for all the Islamic immigrants, including those pretending to be asylum-seekers from Syria, pouring into Western nations from all over the Islamic world.
While Western nations are willingly depopulating themselves, the average Moslem immigrant will wind up with four wives and twenty sons, and every one of them will be on the dole, as he himself is. With immigrants literally pouring into Western nations, and with the prolific Islamic reproduction rates, it won't take long.
Note how well Western man has been desensitized to the threat of Islam, held by nearly all of academia, journalism, entertainment, politics and politicians, and all of the elites of Western society, to be a Religion Of Peace. Even though it is a religion of war.
Moslems who would convince us of the peaceful nature of Islam are practicing Taqiyya, the Islamic doctrinal imperative to lie to unbelievers about what Islam intends to do to them until Islam is powerful enough to actually do it. And they are believed. Despite what the Koran says. Despite what the Imams say.
This desensitization leads us to be distracted into concentrating our attention on groups like ISIS, and Al Queda, and Taliban, rather than on the global strategy of Islam. It's the same mistake we make with Marxism. We concentrate on Pop-Up Jihdists, which we don't even call Jihadists; we call them Terrorists, or Radical Islamists. We try to detect them ahead of time, we try to catch them after the fact, we study them to find out who "radicalized" them, all while not even looking at Strategic Islam. Or at Strategic Marxism, which are often in league with each other.
"But I know several Moslems, and they're good people, and they are not our enemies", you might say. And there are many, many Westerners who might say that.
Those are the Moslems we should be looking at. They, or their progeny, are the ones who will do us all in.
Look at the overall strategy.
Moslems among Westerners practice Dawa, or proslytyzing/evangelizing and explaining Islam to unbelievers in the interest of converting them to Islam. How nice, you say. We can have a peaceful dialogue, and maybe we can even convert them to our religion.
Dawa is a requirement before Jihad may commence. The offer must be made, before the unbeliever may be subjugated, enslaved or killed. It's just as important a requirement of Islam as is Taqiyya, or Jihad itself. It's part of Jihad.
While our attention is concentrated on ISIS and on pop-up "terrorists", the real threat to national existence and the freedom of man is all those perfectly peaceful Moslem neighbors living among us. Some practice Taqiyya; some practice Dawa; but all of them smile a friendly crocodile smile, hold their tongues, bide their time and await the moment when they may assume total Islamic power, right where they are.
Something similar is going on among our mainstream Marxists. While our diverted attention is all concentrated on fighting homophobia, Islamophobia, tranny-phobia, racism, misogyny, rape of the planet, etc., etc., etc., Marxism, the ideology, gains more and more Western cultural ground against Truth Himself.
Comrade Obama (peace be upon him) may present the best example of both evil global strategies being applied simultaneously. Our twice elected poor little black President is just so discriminated against and so picked on by our whole horribly racist American culture that he just can't shut up about it and will never forget about it.
Satan must be smiling.
Why raise any evil army when you can raise an evil ideology, or two, and induce people to destroy themselves?
Let us pray that President Elect Trump will look beyond the symptoms, beyond the tactics, beyond all the myriad small skirmishes, and really look closely at the global strategies of these two enemies of Truth, and enemies of all that is good. We are at war; that needs to be at least recognized before it can be won. The fact that we have not declared it does not mean that it is not commencing, right now, everywhere. And unless the overall strategy, i.e., the ideologies, are understood, they cannot be fought in any way leading to victory.
We The People have been badly fooled on all of this, through purposeful disinformation, and purposeful desensitization. Most of us don't see it, or can't accept it. And that's the real problem. The Media is no help here, because the Media is in on it, and helping it to conquer us. The Media is just as anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-white, anti-male, anti-straight, anti-Western, anti-life, anti-liberty, anti-property and anti-moral as is any other Marxist or any Moslem.
ISIS, Black Lives Matter, open borders, pop-up acts of Jihad, LGBTQ "rights", the Clinton Campaign, imaginary genders, gender-free public rest rooms, political correctness, Presidential pardons, sanctuary cities, all, and more, are mere distracting symptoms; they involve mere tactics. To win a war you must attack the grand strategy from which all those tactics and all those small skirmishes and mini-battles emerge.
President Elect Trump may be the most likely man in leadership today who may, and who probably already does, see all this for what it is.
Whatever else he may be, Trump is no dummy. He's a big picture guy.
On that happy note, I wish you a Merry Christmas, as in Christ's Mass, whether any mainstream Marxists or mainstream Moslems like it or not.

"and all of the elites of Western society, to be a Religion Of Peace." ......
With pope being kingpin of these "elites" .... shameful to be a Roman Catholic - Papist.

Well, maybe, but being ashamed of a particular Pope is better than going to hell. As a proud Papist, I have made my informed choice and I will live with it. As an angry anti-Papist, you have made your informed choice, and you will die with it. For outside the Church you have knowingly rejected, there is no salvation.

The Divide And Conquer Pages.
Establishing National and International Unions was only a first step in the new Marxist project of "Community Organizing." You cannot name an emergency, an approaching calamity, an unfairness or a failure in "Social Justice" that is not either invented by or co-opted by Marxist Community Organizing.
The Divide and Conquer Pages reveal Marxism's insidious master stratagem. Marxism's most successful deception is plumbed in the Divide and Conquer Pages.
Social Issue Neutrality: The Death Knell of Civilized Culture. Can Christians embrace God Belief Neutrality? How about God's Law Neutrality? How, exactly, is Social Issue Neutrality any less damning?
Induced "Islamic Privilege" and the false charge of Islamophobia. Our own future murderers are welcomed right in among us under the fraudulent peaceful banner of "Multiculturalism".
Induced "Black Privilege" and Racist Anti-White Anti-Americanism. How Marxist-induced "Multiculturalism" actually alienates and splits us all apart while pretending to unite us all together.
On Cultural Desensitization to Strategies of Cultural Destruction. The systematic psychological desensitization of a nation's citizenry to the reality of mortal threats to nations.
Multiculturalism: Suicidal Diversity. How on earth could heterogeneity displace homogeneity without destroying culture?
The Class Warfare Lies of "Social Justice" infecting theology and philosophy. Most every time "Social Justice" is invoked, you are about to hear some Class Warfare Lies.
Civil Jihad = War by Immigration; Cultural Marxism = Revolution by Education. Civil Jihad is like Cultural Marxism: Civil Jihad is War waged by Immigration, and Cultural Marxism is Revolution waged by Education.
Eco-Nazi -ism: global problems demanding global solutions, and, global mastery. The Eco-Nazi movement actually describes two movements: those who say "it's the economy, stupid" and those who say "it's the ecology, stupid."
Femi-Nazi -ism: The Leftist, authoritarian Movement that commandeered Feminism. The Femi-Nazi Movement seeks to modify our language and culture, restrict our speech and press, and create and alienate yet another "disenfranchised" group.
Homo Nazi -ism assaults the Western Culture ethos of our American majority. The grass-roots Homo Nazi is for the most part a simple immoral selfist. But the homo-Nazi in the rarified atmosphere of city, state and national politics is a much more sinister character.
The Racial Nazi Movement seeks to modify all of society to favor one race. Racial-Nazi joins Eco-Nazi, Femi-Nazi and Homo-Nazi movements feeding class warfare.
The Immigrant-Nazi Movement. The Immigrant-Nazis are yet another Soros-Funded, Alinsky-Organized, Marxocrat Party Protected, News Media Championed, Anti-American Revolutionary Front Group.
The rise of the Femi Nazi Green Beret, and the decline of military victory. The first Femi Nazi Green Beret will be awarded out of fairness, not excellence.
The White Racism Hoax, the Racist America Fraud, and Reverse Racism. The White Racism Hoax, slandering Western Civilization in general and America in particular.
Science opposes Racial Discrimination and favors Brotherhood of All Men. Racial Discrimination is an unnatural, immoral, irrational, culturally induced and learned behavior.
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
