America Has Become the Greatest Exporter of Destructive Ideas, by Dennis Prager

Currently, China is the biggest threat to world stability, Russia is the world’s leading aggressive nation and Islamist groups are the main exporters of (religious) terrorism and totalitarianism.

And for the first time in history, America is the world’s largest exporter of destructive ideas.

It’s hard for me to write this. One of my books is called Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values ​​to Win. It contrasts American values ​​with leftist values ​​and proves that the American value system is the best ever devised. I define American values ​​- what I call the “American Trinity” – as “Liberty”, “In God We Trust” and “E Pluribus Unum”, (Latin for “Many, One”), the three American mottos found on an American. coins and bills.

No other country has these three national mottos. The book claims that any country can adopt these values ​​and any country that adopts these values ​​will be a good society. Its citizens will be the freest in the world and this country will prosper.

Indeed, these values ​​are why Americans have been the freest people in the world and America has been, by far, the greatest land of opportunity in human history.

But America has gradually abandoned its unique value system, and as a result is becoming a less free, less humane, less prosperous and more corrupt country. In fact, at this moment, America is no longer the best country, the exceptional country, it has been since 1776. There may not yet be a better country. But this is cold comfort.

We are in the incredible position that many other relatively free societies are afraid of; More than a few European countries actually reject America’s current values. And they are right to do so.

The clearest example of America in decline is the perverse American doctrines surrounding transgender issues: the sex (“gender”) of any person is not a given, “men give birth”, men who say they are women may compete in women’s sports, and doctors and children’s hospitals are right to surgically cut out the The healthy breasts of young women and even girls who say they are boys.

America’s war on truth, science and children made America more and more exceptional in the Western world.

More and more European countries are rejecting the perverted worlds of Yale and virtually every other American university, of the New York Times and virtually every other mainstream leftist medium, of Boston Children’s Hospital and virtually every other children’s hospital, of the University of Minnesota Medical School and virtually every school another for medicine.

Switzerland has just announced that as far as the Swiss nation and government are concerned, sex is not “non-binary”. In Switzerland, there are only two species, as has been the case in basically every civilization in recorded history, because that is the reality.

As reported by the AP (but apparently not in the New York Times or elsewhere in the left-wing mainstream media), Swiss citizens “enter the civil registry as either male or female, with no other option.” The Swiss Federal Council declared, “The binary gender model is still firmly anchored in Swiss society.”

Sweden — the most revered member of the American left until it broke with the rest of the West by allowing its children to stay in school during the COVID-19 hysteria — also broke with America on the transgender issue. Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare has stopped the practice of prescribing puberty blockers to minors under the age of 18; And starting in December, mastectomies will only be offered in the rarest of circumstances.

Thomas Linden, head of the National Council, announced, “Young people suffering from gender dysphoria should be able to quickly receive an investigation and be offered appropriate treatment measures, based on health and medical service assessments of treatment needs. Good psychosocial care is fundamental.”

In other words, if a teenage Swedish girl says she is a boy, Sweden will offer “psychosocial” treatment, almost never hormone blockers, let alone a mastectomy.

Between Sweden’s new policy on gender dysphoria and allowing children to stay in school throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, an American must sadly conclude that at this time in history, Sweden cares a lot more about its young than America.

In England last October, the National Health Service (NHS) announced, in the words of the “Daily Mail”, that “children who believe they are trans are probably only going through a short-lived phase”. Therefore, say logic and morality, we should not make permanent, life-changing changes to their bodies through drugs and surgery.

Additionally, “NHS England’s draft guidelines are part of the NHS’s plan to close the highly controversial Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) at the Tavistock Clinic, the country’s only gender identity service for children. GIDS is due to close its doors in the spring after an inspection found the service unsafe.”

Typical of the changes taking place in the UK regarding transgender issues, Stella O’Malley, psychotherapist and director of Genspect, an international transgender treatment group based in England, advised: “Professionals working with children need to … make sure they are not inadvertently causing harm by providing relief short-term that leads to long-term distress… At Genspect… we don’t think changing nicknames helps anyone – it creates more problems than it solves.”

In France, the National Academy of Medicine issued a statement advocating “psychosocial support” instead of hormone blockers and surgery for young people with gender dysphoria.

Finland already enacted a similar policy decision as early as 2020. 13 European countries are now rejecting the US “non-binary” attack on human sexuality and children.

Unfortunately, when it comes to child welfare, there are many countries where American parents prefer to raise their child.

I never imagined I would ever believe it.

I wish you a better year.
