History Of The Mormon Church

Utah was once a theocracy. At one point in time in America the mormon church functioned as a seat of governance in the state of Utah.

Brigham Young, founder of The LDS sect of mormonism, was the first governor of Utah. He was also the prophet of the LDS mormon church.

Unfortunately Utah is now a secular state.

Some people speculate that some mormons who are chaste transmute the repressed sexual energy into enthusiasm for the mormon church. This is similar to what George Orwell talked about in his book 1984 where he talked about how the chastity among the citizens resulted in sexual energy being transmuted into enthusiasm for the state.

The Mormon Church performs a function which is similar to a function a socialist state performs. The Mormon Church taxes everyone in the church 10% of their income. This money is used to provide programs for poor mormons as well as to provide money for for community oriented mormon functions and to provide money for the mormon temple.

Historically mormons who are unchaste are not allowed to enter the mormon temple for temple ceremonies.

A mormon author once a made a list of the parallels between mormonism writings and socialist ideologies and here they are:

“It is not given that one man should possess that which is above another” (Doctrine and Covenants 49:20).

“Appoint unto this people their portions, every man equal according to his family, according to his circumstances and his wants and needs” (Doctrine and Covenants 51:3).

“That now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality” (2 Corinthians 8:14).

“And they had all things common among them; therefore there were not rich and poor, bond and free, but they were all made free, and partakers of the heavenly gift” (4 Nephi 1:3).

I discovered the well-hidden Proclamation on the Economy signed by the highest ranking Mormon officials—Brigham Young, his counselors, and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles—in 1875. It said, “One of the great evils with which our own nation is menaced at the present time is the wonderful growth of wealth in the hands of a comparatively few individuals.” I found other statements by LDS officials legitimizing my train of thought. “The conditions of sharing demanded by the Lord can only be satisfied by complete equality, a point that is ceaselessly repeated…We cannot be equal, as the Lord commands, and live on different levels of affluence,” writes Hugh Nibley.

  1. Each area has its own unique tendencies of breaking away from globalism. In South America they seem to be doing this with socialism. Dennis Kucinich and Ralph Nader seem to be opponents of globalism on the left. On the right Ron Paul is an opponent of globalism but his libertarian values seem undesirable due to the fact that libertarians are against the existence of national parks.

    The words socialism and communism are so tainted in American culture that it is better off not using those words in ones political party.

    The party which I support is the green party

    This party is a pro-environmental party.

    A major challenge for the left is to incorporate anti-immigration ideas into their platforms. In Europe there is a socialist party that opposes immigration due to the fact it reduces workers wages and there are some private organizations in America that oppose immigration for environmental reasons.

    But the left is very afraid to oppose immigration due to fears of being called racist.

    Any society from large to small should have conservative immigration based on careful review of high standards. For some societies and especially for chaste societies like Buddhist monasteries and the Shakers, they need a large influx of outsiders. But even then, they take them in on very strict standards and anyone who comes in is then fully integrated.

    Immigration in modern society is a tool that has been used to wreak havoc and destroy national traditions. Only a small part of any country’s immigration policy is positive. For example in the US there are immigrants from China and India admitted on strict standards who help the US economy with technical labor. Yet the vast majority of immigration is illegal and the government encourages it. The US gets two million of the worst Mexicans – criminals and opportunists – each year. Mexico does not want them, either.

    Another issue that this relates to is that society at large is just being driven by their emotions and will not deal with human garbage in a sane and sober manner. A gardener is allowed to weed their garden but a government is not allowed to weed society. We have millions of people who are perverts, idiots, and parasites, who wander the streets like mangy dogs and are ruining society for everyone. With these people at large, it is impossible to develop trust relations necessary for high-civilization traditions like wandering, begging, pilgrimages, hitchhiking, and leaving the front door open for fresh air, sunlight and visits from random friends.
