Paul Harvey 1965


This is amazing, it’s from a Paul Harvey original in 1965.  My hair stood up on the back of my neck when I read this.  Talk about predicting the future!  Well here it is…..

IF I WERE THE DEVIL I WOULDN’T BE HAPPY UNTIL I HAD SEIZED THE RIPEST APPLE ON THE TREE: THEE, SO I WOULD SET ABOUT HOWEVER NECESSARY TO TAKE OVER THE UNITED STATES. I’D SUBVERT THE CHURCHES FIRST. I WOULD BEGIN WITH A CAMPAIGN OF WHISPERS. WITH THE WISDOM OF A SERPENT, I WOULD WHISPER TO YOU AS I WHISPERED TO EVE: ‘DO AS YOU PLEASE.”
TO THE YOUNG, I WOULD WHISPER THAT THE BIBLE IS A MYTH, I WOULD CONVINCE THEM THAT MAN CREATED GOD, INSTEAD OF THE OTHER WAY AROUND. I WOULD CONFIDE THAT WHAT IS BAD IS GOOD, AND WHAT IS GOOD IS “SQUARE.” AND THE OLD, I WOULD TEACH TO PRAY AFTER ME: “OUR FATHER, WHICH ART IN WASHINGTON…”
IF I WERE THE DEVIL, I’D SOON HAVE FAMILIES AT WAR WITH THEMSELVES, CHURCHES AT WAR WITH THEMSELVES, AND NATIONS AT WAR WITH THEMSELVES UNTIL EACH IN ITS TURN WAS CONSUMED. AND WITH PROMISES OF HIGHER RATINGS I’D HAVE MESMERIZING MEDIA FANNING THE FLAMES.
IF I WERE THE DEVIL, I WOULD ENCOURAGE SCHOOLS TO REFINE YOUNG INTELLECTS BUT NEGLECT TO DISCIPLINE EMOTIONS. JUST LET THOSE RUN WILD…SOON I COULD EVICT GOD FROM THE COURTHOUSE, THEN FROM THE SCHOOL HOUSE AND THEN FROM THE HOUSES OF CONGRESS AND IN HIS OWN CHURCHES ! IF I WERE THE DEVIL

IF I WERE THE DEVIL I WOULD SUBSTITUTE PSYCHOLOGY FOR RELIGION, AND DEIFY SCIENCE.
IF I WERE THE DEVIL, I’D MAKE THE SYMBOL OF EASTER AN EGG, AND THE SYMBOL OF CHRISTMAS, A BOTTLE. IF I WERE THE DEVIL, I’D TAKE FROM THOSE WHO HAVE AND GIVE TO THOSE WHO WANT IT, UNTIL I HAD KILLED THE INCENTIVE OF THE AMBITIOUS, AND WHAT’LL YOU BET I COULDN’T GET WHOLE STATES TO PROMOTE GAMBLING AS THE WAY TO GET RICH?
I WOULD CAUTION AGAINST EXTREMES AND HARD WORK AND PATRIOTISM AND MORAL CONDUCT. I WOULD CONVINCE THE YOUNG THAT MARRIAGE IS OLD-FASHIONED THAT SWINGING IS MORE FUN. THAT WHAT YOU SEE ON TV IS THE WAY TO BE. AND THUS I COULD UNDRESS YOU IN PUBLIC AND I COULD LURE YOU INTO BED WITH DISEASES FOR WHICH THERE IS NO CURE.
IN OTHER WORDS IF I WERE THE DEVIL I’D JUST KEEP RIGHT ON DOING WHAT HE’S DOING !!!
PAUL HARVEY,
GOOD DAY.
