Visions of young children dancing around the May pole celebrating the advent of spring is what most people see as May Day. There is a darker side though. In the last century, Communists and Socialist (not much difference) co-opted the day as their annual celebration of “Worker’s Day”.
Certainly, there is no harm in celebrating workers until you put it in this perspective. The Communists, and Socialists to a nominally lesser extent, see themselves as scientific atheists, and therefore, science is their religion, and the state is their god. In America the decline of Christian influence (promoted by the state and the wealthy bankers and elitists behind it) has opened the door for this statist/scientist religion to have more and more sway.
Easily deceived people have chosen to accept this ideology/religion. They find no fault when the state makes them into cattle and tools for the purpose of supporting and furthering the state. Whether they are soldier ants fighting for the latest political meme, assembly line workers pumping out mass manufacturing for consumption, or even a higher level of management, they all bow before the state.
They reveal all of their most private information to the gatherers of data about their income, job, home, social media, family, friends, political views, philosophy, and recreational activities. This is all accomplished by mandated taxation, credit cards, bank accounts and employer reporting. In the more advanced societies of scientific atheists, neighbors report on neighbors, family and friends, so there is an extra layer of data that is much more personal in many ways because it is given in confidence and sincerity.
Sadly in America, God has taken second place to the state, and people don’t seem to realize that there is mercy in God, but there is no mercy in the state – only bribery, cajoling, oppressing, lying, cheating, stealing, murder, war and so on. The state, because it is a creation of man, manages to break all Ten Commandments every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Does that make you sad, or happy? Happy May Day!
