UNMUTED: Episode 5 with Alyssa.

We have a generation that has been pummeled by the blunt force trauma of the hardships, struggles, and influences of a global health crisis. Coping mechanisms are broken. Historical data erased. Emotional monuments that once anchored our future hopes to past victories have been deemed irrelevant. Landmarks of faith which had heretofore entreated young hearts to believe in the possibility of a bright, sunlit future of opportunity has been crucified on the cross of ‘current reality.’ Today’s children no longer believe its possible to have a life as good as their parents or grandparents. Too many young people believe that the best days of America or behind them and their is little hope before them.

In a recent survey, NRC Health reported a staggering increase in anxiety among elementary and teenage children. Depression across all generations has exploded. The robust optimism of once-thriving students has now deteriorated into a mental health crisis.

Anxiety, depression, and isolation assaults this generation with challenge after challenge and yet, our brave young people are resilient enough to soldier on, maneuvering through what has been put in front of them and finding their voice in the midst of a crisis that has been designed to strip them of their personality, thus silencing their influential identities; masking their voice.

While the designs of the enemy are many and they are complex, they can be easily distilled and absolutely discerned. For a generation to lose its personal identity and individuality, it must have its voice silenced. Once the voice of the individual is silenced, then that person’s persona can be reframed by teaching that person a new language; a language that is framed around “peer” personality and “collective identity.”

Christopher Rufo wrote in his compelling New York Post editorial, “Critical Race Theory is fast becoming America’s new institutional orthodoxy. Critical Race Theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990’s and built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. It’s supporters deploy a series of euphemisms to describe CRT, including “equity,” “social justice,” “diversity and inclusion” and “culturally responsive teaching.”

The enemies of freedom have unleashed the perfect strike against your “freedom of speech” by creating a crisis that requires masked lips, blurred eyes, isolated thought, and a compliant citizenry. A crisis so sinister that its design is to silence your “free speech. ” Your speech is the expression of your “thoughts.” You must have a thought before you can frame a word. Thoughts precede words. Your words are a reflection of your “free thought” and that specific thought-pattern (freedom) is born out of the hearts of freedom-loving, freedom-celebrating, freedom-cherishing people.

Rufo went on to say, “Critical Race Theorists are masters at language construction, and they realized that “neo-Marxism” would be a hard sell, so they used words that sounded innocent and nonthreatening that Americans would easily confuse” while huddled in their palaces of isolation. If overwhelming fear can be fostered, the fruit of that fear will be a people staggering in silence. A silent people can be made a compliant people. So “equity” was introduced as a companion of American’s perception of equality. And yet, Marxism completely and utterly rejects equality, the principle proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence and the principle for which men and women have fought for and died securing.

In contrast to equality, equity as defined and promoted by critical race theorists is little more than reformulated Marxism. In the name of equity, UCLA law professor and critical race theorist Cheryl Harris has proposed suspending private property rights, seizing land and wealth and redistributing them along racial lines.

Critical race guru Ibram X. Kendi, who directs the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University, has proposed the creation of a federal Department of Antiracism. This department would be independent of (i.e., unaccountable to) the elected branches of government and would have the power to nullify, veto or abolish any law at any level of government and curtail the speech of political leaders and others deemed insufficiently “antiracist.”

One practical result of the creation of such a department would be the overthrow of capitalism, since, according to Kendi, “in order to truly be antiracist, you also have to truly be anticapitalist.”

In other words, identity is the means; Marxism is the end.

An equity-based form of government would mean the end not only of private property but also of individual rights, equality under the law, federalism and freedom of speech. These would be replaced by race-based redistribution of wealth, group-based rights, active discrimination and omnipotent bureaucratic authority.

It is in the face of this anti-God, anti-Christian, and anti-liberty-for-all-people tsunami that our young people are finding their voice. They are reframing the conversation of life and they are searching for those who will embrace their hunger for Truth, who will meet their need for unconditional love, and who will share in their quest for authentic, life-giving relationships.

I am thrilled that our young people refuse to be led as sheep to the proverbial slaughter. My prayer for them is that King Jesus would crown them with a voice that could not be silenced, a boldness that cannot be tamed, and a light that cannot be extinguished.
