In 1969, Don Fabun, the Director of Publications at Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corporation, produced a most interesting booklet called "Children of Change." The front cover featured a rather psychedelic drawing of a ballplayer like Babe Ruth surrounded with a handless clock, and a lady and gentleman, as a sort of a spider-web/fly arrangement, all of which showed that there was plenty of time. The back cover showed an old man now a drugged sports figure, where time is tilted and he wields a doctor's caduceus for a ballbat.
Why did Kaiser Aluminum find it necessary to produce such an analysis of the 1960's? Whatever their motives, it is easy to see from hindsight what an overthrow of reason and logic has come to our nation. This is not the natural course of time, rather a deliberate takeover of the United States through the universities and media. It was orchestrated. While you slept.
It would probably help to be on drugs to understand this esoteric collection of philosophies depicted in the magazine. However, the 1960's are properly labeled "The Movement." Page 30: "The kinds of people who lead The Movement or comprise the hard-core following are as diverse a as the cross-section of the populations from which they are drawn.
"The movement encompasses hippies and doctrinaire Leninists, anarchists and populists, the "campus Cong" and peaceful communards, militant confrontationists and mystics. Bakuninists and humanists, power seekers, ego trippers, revolutionaries whose domain is the human mind, Marxists, rock bands and cultural guerrillas." This from Fortune Magazine: "Student Activists," January 1969)
Of course the response from the average American is: what on earth is going on? A chapter called "A Wrestle of Demons," "A Prevalence of Witches," and other tantalizing titles leads us to the real cornerstone of rebellion against The Old Man. "Long hair on young men has probably caused more family quarrels during the past years than any other single subject, and while father may still scream about his son's locks, the old man has been letting his own grow a bit on top and discovered that longer sideburns are really quite becoming." (Frances Moffatt) - 'What the Hippies Gave Us,' San Francisco Chronicle, Dec. 22, 1968. All this further elaborates on the "magic about The Children of Change."
Magic, sure! Magic enough to transform the word Bolshevism in the 1920's, to Communism in the 1930's, to Liberalism at the 1968 Democratic Convention. Magic enough to transform order and right into a mass of black confusion and glorify laziness and sloth. And Children of Change outlines perfectly the plan for revolt and blaming authorities, the police and ultimately God Himself. This is the Change of Roger Baldwin, founder of the ACLU, who stated: I am a Communist and I will rid the United States of God in public places. His children are now lawyers and judges.
Well, now Children. It is time for a Change Back. And while the "Scenario for Student Revolt," (Page 30) has broken the heart of many parents and your church music may sound more like emanating from a disco, yet there is remnant who have not bowed the knee to Baal.
As we rise up and rebuild our Jerusalem the Golden, the United States, we will build upon the pillars of Americanism - The Ten Commandments, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. And we will pay the Old Man back ALL his social security "investment." There might even be some change left over.
