“Agenda: The Grinding Down of America”

by Curtis Bowers


  1. America has an enemy that is getting very close to accomplishing its plan of destroying the greatest country in all world history.
  2. As the weekend unfolded Curtis Bowers listened carefully as they outlined their plan and agenda of how they were going to infiltrate the institutions of America in order to influence us in the direction they wanted us to go.
    • To destroy our families
    –They wanted to promote cohabitation instead of marriage
    –They wanted to try to get children away into government programs at the earliest age possible.
    • To destroy business, they wanted to get behind the environmental movement and in 1992 the environmental movement was very modest but they thought it was the only vehicle capable of creating enough regulation and red tape to discourage business growth.
    • And finally, to destroy our culture of religion and morality, they said if they could get Americans to accept homosexuality it would begin to extinguish our traditional moral values that Americans held.
  3. The book was The Naked Communist by W. Cleon Skousen who had been a former F.B.I. agent. Inside the book it documented 45 communist goals from 1958.
  4. Goal #17 – Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism…soften the curriculum. Get control of the teacher associations.
  5. Goal #20, 21 – Infiltrate the press. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  6. Goal #24 – Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
  7. Goal #25 – Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography in books, magazines, motion pictures, and TV.
  8. Goal #26 – Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy”.
  9. Goal #27 – Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible.
  10. Goal #28 – Eliminate prayer in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
  11. Goal #40 – Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  12. They had accomplished almost every single one of them. For at least the last 50 years, they’ve been working actively, behind the scenes, trying to move our culture in a direction that was designed to destroy us.
  13. One of the things the communists are doing worldwide is not using that name. They’re even trying to get away from the word ‘liberal’ to describe themselves. They are trying to call themselves ‘progressives’.
  14. From history we see that socialism, by whatever name and in all its forms, is the ultimate evil. Sooner or later it destroys everything in its path—law, morality, family, prosperity, productivity, education, incentive, and finally life itself.
  15. Most of the strategy to remake America from within started with Antonio Gramsci who wrote over 2000 pages back in the 1930’s outlining how to take a Judeo-Christian culture down from the inside. The plan he suggested has been the main focus of the Left ever since. He knew of the importance of undermining the morals and the character of this country.
  16. Antonio Gramsci said, “We’re going to destroy the West by destroying its culture. We’re going to turn their music, their art and their literature against them.” That means that you penetrate the universities, you write the books, the novels, the poetry, the music, the book reviews.
  17. The communists have been very effective in promoting their ideology in Hollywood, in the mass media.
  18. One of Gramsci’s all-star disciples, Saul Alinsky, became one of the most influential radicals of the 1960’s.
  19. He wrote the book Rules for Radicals. In the front of the book he dedicated it to Lucifer!
  20. After studying Alinsky, Richard Cloward and his wife Francis Fox Piven came up with what is today known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Their idea was that to destroy society, or to destroy capitalism per se, they needed to overload the system. The idea was to get everybody you possibly could on welfare.
  21. Cloward and Piven said, “Let’s collapse the economy by implementing so many entitlements, so much of a welfare state that it’ll collapse.”
  22. They published an article called The Weight of the Poor in which they outlined their strategy. Wade Rathke read that article and ended up starting what we know today as A.C.O.R.N.
  23. If you go back to Karl Marx, you see that the war is still against the family, which is really the biblical family – father, mother and child. They want to change the very definition and meaning of marriage. If there’s any one thing that will prevent the left from carrying out its agenda it’s healthy and strong, nuclear families. (Emphasis added.)
  24. Their ideologies all work together to break down families, to break down the sanctity of human life, the value of human life, to break down the idea that there is a God that we are accountable to.
  25. Lenin said that the organized minority will beat the disorganized majority every time.
  26. We need a dedicated, informed, praying Christian making things happen and being determined to do so. (Dr. Jim Bowers)
