Family and Civilization

Written by Carle C. Zimmerman

"Family and Civilization is the magnum opus of Carle Zimmerman, a distinguished sociologist who taught for many years at Harvard University. In this unjustly forgotten work Zimmerman demonstrates the close and causal connections between the rise and fall of different types of families and the rise and fall of civilizations, particularly ancient Greece and Rome, medieval and modern Europe, and the United States. Zimmerman traces the evolution of family structure from tribes and clans to extended and large nuclear families to the small nuclear families and broken families of today. And he shows the consequences of each structure for the bearing and rearing of children; for religion, law, and everyday life; and for the fate of civilization itself.

Originally published in 1947, this compelling analysis predicted many of today’s cultural and social controversies and trends, including youth violence and depression, abortion and homosexuality..."

    Luck=Moloch=demon.Gov't is killing you with highfrequencyelectricity. Theotokos Virgin Mary gave prayers to "Schema-nun Antonia" on how to save aborted babies from hell. If you pray these prayers diligently, aborted babies are released from hell. On each painted nail there are forty demons. Smoking is censer to the devil.Using foul language calls upon Pagan deities (aka demons); Holy Spirit departs on seven meters. People who use drugs see demons who cleverly disguise themselves as ghosts and aliens.America will be last country to switch to Euro (antichrist's world currency). Contraceptives = abortion;using contraceptives for one year = five aborted kids.Miscarriages happen because of high heels; cesarean because of pants (second generation cesarean will be infertile).Unbaptized aborted/miscarried/unborn babies burn in hell until Final Judgement; if pregnant, keep the kid and deliver at home because kids are chippedusing IVs and vaccines in hospitals. Dentists and doctors chip patients secretly. Ultrasound leads to mark of the beast; don't do ultrasound, please. Abortion leads to breast cancer; a demon is released from hell for each aborted kid. Dogs can become possessed; don't keep dogs inside your home [Pelageya of Ryazan]. Walmart has technology to administer mark of the beast to those who have cat bacteria in their stomachs/brains; stay away from cats [Athanasius 3rd of Constantinople]. Next false flag is the Statue of Liberty. Above earth there is ice (dome); when rockets go up they bring ice down from upper sky to lower sky; ice stuck in lower sky will fall on us during Apocalypse. Earth is flat; earth stands on three stalactite pillars (The Most Holy Trinity); pillars stand on water at zero Kelvin; underneath this ice there is a bubble; and then the abyss. Zodiac is planetary prison of demons; don't believe in horoscopes or you'll exhibit the traits of the trapped demons. Most thoughts and dreamsare from demons; demons never do good. Sleep fully clothed; pray the Jesus prayer. Pray to your guardian angel to have normal sleep. Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov was the last prophet before Apostle John (who wrote the Book of Revelation), Enoch, Elijah, resurrected Seraphim of Sarov, and resurrected Sergius of Radonezh will preach against the antichrist. Humans were created about 7530 years ago. Birds participate in time creation. It's a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level; they will get out through sinkholes and lakes; to kill them, go for their nerves. Save the birds; but kill the dinosaurs. First dinosaur will come out of Volga River in Russia. Scientists don't see dinosaurs under our level because of radiation. Sinkholes happen because people dig for resources underground and because earth is heating up. Demons grow human skin (from a sample taken during abduction) and put it on so as to look like us. Demons will invite peopletobehealedinsidetheirUFOs; those who go will be like zombies after. Gov't provides demons with diamonds and allows demons to abduct people. If you're being abducted, slowly pray the Jesus prayer. Don't panic. Demons use diamonds and souls to power their UFO craft. The bigger the diamond, the more it lasts. Demons have 4 UFO bases: 1)moon 2)inside fake mountain Kailash (Tibet) 3)in lake Baikal in Russia 4)in Atlantis which is underneath double ocean floor of Mariana Trench (Pacific Ocean). There are no aliens. Nobody lives on other planets. Airplanes that go down are hit by demons because they need the airspace to fight Jesus. Antichrist is pale with red eyes. He's possessed by Satan since he's 12 years old [Lavrentiy Chernigovskiy]. He flies super fast; deceived people will say: "Christ is here; Christ is there" when he's flying from one city to the next very fast. He wears gloves to hide long nails. He'ssurrounded by demons who appear as angels of light. Antichrist will trick people that he can do mountain moving and resurrection using holograms/hypnosis; fire from the sky is real because of pollution gases in the atmosphere. Antichrist will have food only for 6 months; then he will feed his 666ed people flourfrom mashed up turtles (Tavrion Batozskiy), but this won't be enough because 666ed people are 10 times as angry and 7 times as hungry as normal people even though 666ed people became shorter (3-4 feet tall = 80 - 120 cm)because nanochips do function of organs (organs diminish) [Nilus Myrrhgusher]. If you have a lot of nanochips in your forearm, then you will not be able to make proper Orthodox sign ofthe cross (last mercy for you will be to cut yourforearm off). Nanochips are sprayed by the gov't usingchemtrails; they're also in gov't food andmedicine; so, eat food from your own garden. In case garden is destroyed by ice from the sky, have chickens for eggs and goats for milk (Paisios). Lipstick contains cells of abortedfetuses, dog fat, and placenta; human fleshis in McDonalds, Pepsi, toothpaste, antiaging,anticancer, vaccines, perfume, etc.; that's why you should not be using anything that modern society has to offer. You're better off hiding within a 10-15 people group in order to escape Apocalypse. During Apocalypse,Christians will eat dirt from under pussywillowtree as it's filled with tears of Theotokos VirginMary; this water will flee if a 666ed person tries to get it. Barcode is Druid black magic curse; QRcode is Mayan curse; when food is scanned, it becomes dead because laser is a substance from demons. Don't go into a UFO to be healed by demons. Unforgivablegreen666 is given by isotope rays on wrist or forehead when people stretch hands to receive small plastic grey card with no name on it (WorldPassport). It doesn't just have to be during this procedure (could be anything you sign up for or anywhere where there is a secret scanner); biometrics (fingerprints, eyescan) or getting picture for passport are very dangerous because they could mark you secretly. GabrielUrgebadze said thattheydoitonindexfingerwhenthey scan your finger. Basically, trytoavoidnewdocuments at all cost. Policewill microchip and isotope ray people on highways. Chipped people will be influenced by computers to take grey plastic card; but when they do, greenmark by isotope rays is given on forehead/wrist. Food stores will isotoperaypeopletoo. Antichrist will also release prisoners/insaneasylumpeople tomarkpeople. Reject 666 at all cost because it leads to permanent hell. If you're about to be marked, pray the Jesus prayer. Hide with OrthodoxChristians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can'ttrack you; burn documents because they're fromSatan. TheMostHolyTrinity gives you a name during baptism; devil gives an antiname during antibaptism (ex. SocialSecurityNumber). People who die with these Satanicdocuments go to concentrationcamp in hell to await FinalJudgement; once the BEASTComputer is burned down, souls will be released for FinalJudgement. That's why you should give back documents of your deceasedrelatives back to the gov't so that the gov't cancels these digital antichristiannames given during antibaptism by the beastsystem; or just burn thesedocumentsbecause gov't could get upset and could send demons to mark you because of this outright act of defiance. Prophecy from halfamillennium ago describes FinalJudgement like this: Jesus was very upset with people who had littleboards (plasticcards) in their hands because they wanted discount from the antichrist. Givetocharity in the name of ArchangelMichael; he rescues people from temporaryhell twice a year [at midnight September18-19 and similarly on November20-21; pray at these times on your knees remembering the deceased by names (adding "and relatives by flesh up to Adam") so that they arerescued if they're in hell] (orbrings them up alevel, that is, to a level with lesspunishment;eventually, people arefreed). Feed thepigeons;when pigeons bowdown, people are savedfrom temporaryhell. It's a big sin to rememberthe deadwithwreaths (because demons put these wreaths on their necks if they're inhellwith theirwrists tied up behind their back while hanging by their wrists), meat,alcohol,sweets,andworldlymusic. Demons printiconsof saints/crosses/8sidedstarofTheotokosVirginMary in newspapers/products so that you throw these newspapers/products in the trashblasphemingthesesaints. Crosses on solesofshoesandbackofpants are blasphemy. Demons makecarpets with crosses and put them on sidewalks so that people walkoncrosses. Playingcards mockhow Jesus sufferedonthecross: clubs(cross on which Jesus wascrucified), diamonds (fournails Jesus was crucifiedwith), hearts (sponge with vinegar that Jesuswas given to drink),spades (spear with whichJesus waspierced).Cremationisdevilworship; onlyblasphemers suchasLenin should be burned; if Lenin is buried, earth will be polluted, and China will attack Russia because of this.

In 2006 in Moscow (that's why Moscow will sink),representatives from most religions signed a document where it says that all religions worship the same SupremeBeing [aka thedevil].

    Abortion existed before the 1950s. People then sought abortions mostly for pregnancy complications. But the numbers skyrocketed during the sexual revolution. 1 million abortions happening every year in the US alone. Only 15 percent of abortions are sought by married women today. 50 percent of the abortions are sought by girls who are not in any relationship with the guy they had sex with. Unbridled promiscuity.

    The abortion culture that we see today is the direct result of promiscuity that was enabled by the normalization of pills and other birth controls during the sexual revolution. Their solution is to encourage more promiscuity and degenerate behavior by placing birth control in the hands of young kids. 

    Left uses powerful language like “marriage equality”. How can homosexuality be equal to heterosexuality? Heterosexuality is indispensable to any society. Homosexuality serves no purpose. 

    Most gay people are not interested in any long term relationships, let alone marriage. This is a trivial issue. They just wanted to redefine marriage and corrupt the institution. Most gay people don’t care about this.

    Marriage has always been an institution for procreation and raising children. LGBT has successfully decoupled fecundity from marriage thereby cheapening the marriage institution to just sexual attraction. Polyamorous groups are now using the same arguments that gay people made 5 years ago.

    The marriage rate is declining rapidly. It is at a historic low now. The birthrate is also declining and the future is western civilization itself is uncertain. 

    Feminism in the 1960s killed the birthrates causing an irreversible decline in the demographics and aging population. It increased the divorce rates and caused the breakdown of families. The normalization of homosexuality in the 21st century will cause the next level of decay. I think It will be the final nail in the coffin. @Entropy - It usually takes 3 generations for the effects to be known.

    People promoting these vices don’t care what happens to society. They are selfish and hedonistic people.

    The fertility rate of all western countries fell below the replacement level of 2.1 during the sexual revolution of the 1960s. You can easily google this, Augie. Take any country in Europe, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. They had a healthy replacement-level birthrate until the 1960s/70s. Then it dramatically collapsed. It is not even close to the replacement level now. The 5-6 decades of below replacement level birthrate have caused the aging population and triggered the demographic replacement of all western countries in the 21st century. This is HOW civilization collapses. It is happening.

    Feminists will never acknowledge this because they ARE enabling it.

    Birth control separated sex from the natural result of sex. It treats female fertility as a disease. Only after the advent of birth control, there was an explosion in promiscuity and sex outside marriage. Increase in divorce rates. Abortion rates skyrocketed after legalization. It all happened in the 1960s and 70s. You can easily google this.

    If feminism is such a wonderful concept, it should provide us a replacement-level birthrate. It is not misogyny to expect a replacement-level birthrate. That is women’s important responsibility towards society.

    Augie, Procreation had always been an important aspect of marriage. Gay people *have* to downplay the procreation aspect because they are corrupting the institution. 20 years ago, it was rare to find a married couple who deliberately avoided children.

    The advent of effective birth control lowered the need for abortions, you woman-hating idiots. Feminism did not destroy anything but the belief that women were less than human. I notice the person who wrote that woman-hating rant did not cite any sources or anything to back up their ranting. 

    Gay people did not break up societies or empires or families. What a bullshiiit take. Marriage has long been an economic endeavor. Up until recently, people rarely if ever married simply because they felt some affection for their future spouse to be. Such a concept was quite funny to most. You married to get a roof over your head and security if a woman because society pretty much left you no other choices but extreme poverty, prostitution or hoping your family tolerated you, let you live in their home. Education, career and independence were not a hallmark of women's anything until the last century or so. 

    There is no such thing as abortion culture. That's emotional propaganda designed to suppress and oppress.

    1947. Every generation ever has had depression, violence, abortion and gay people. They are not new. Empires breaking down is far more complicated than blame gay people for whatever problems exist. 

    Also, even when the church had an iron fist on Europe, controlled everything, violence, abortion, gay people, depression existed, flourished even. Churches don't solve anything societal-wise. They just make them worse in a lot of cases. Families also work on far more fluid lines than churches define. 

    That was also written right after WWII ended. A rush to return to what seemed normal was the goal there. That's why we got the trends of the 50's. Then the unrest and awakening of the 60's. Except that unrest has always been part of societies. That awareness that being told to be a certain way doesn't mean that certain way is right or that it works for who you are. Churches emphasize the status quo, not the truth,

    I haven't read the book. Why do you bring up homosexuality specifically, when it is only mentioned vaguely as one of the predicted trends? It does not seem to have made much of an impact in academic circles.

  • 3 months ago

    Sounds like a justification of a pre-drawn conclusion.  Gay marriage has been legal in some states for a couple decades now.  It's been legal across the whole nation for several years.  There's no evidence of the breakdown of the family that Christians spent years insisting would happen.

    Sometimes you just have to admit you were wrong.

    The fall of Rome happened because they conquered people who didn't want to be conquered, treated them badly, and yet incorporated them into their military where they were disloyal.  Then they split in two empires for administrative reasons, but that left all the wealth and productivity in the East, and mostly just poverty in the West.  The decay may well have been CORRELATED with some family decline, I can't speak to that, but it certainly wasn't CAUSED by it.

    1947.  Too bad more modern scholarship has found otherwise.
