Now we have Communist China that has developed techniques to turn its citizens against one another through “social credit”. It sends those who disagree with their rule to prisons, where they can be taken apart as living organ donors at the whim of the Socialist State. It deceives its citizens by rewriting history and controlling the information they are permitted to access and the news they are allowed to hear.
Our “leaders” in Washington apparently do not understand that if someone with sufficient gravitas and the makings of a real organization behind them were to take the stage with a true message of revolution, that revolution will absolutely come to pass. Again, this isn’t a call for it to happen; this is an honest assessment that it’s more than possible – it’s damned likely.
Every institution in American life is failing. The people are finally starting to see how this works at the same time that they see how the vaccines work. It did not have to be, but we allowed it to get this far, and now so many things are broken that there is barely any honorable and effective authority left. As the long night falls over the land, we survey the terrain and see fiery eruptions on the horizon. Is that the flashing of chaos in the distance?
The current trend towards fascism and totalitarianism in America is founded in the rejection of God and the rejection of a freely-lived life that confirms one has the liberty to do anything through God’s righteous moral code, as seen in the Ten Commandments and over 600 more Biblical commandments, that does no wrong to anyone else.
The need to justify force with righteousness is not limited to wartime. Every new coercive law or regulation is justified not on the basis of “I’m strong enough to take your stuff and so I think I will,” but because “our cause is just.” While some who would take your freedom or your life are motivated by their desire for power, the most vicious monsters in human history were all motivated by righteousness.
This question is not a joke. But it does show how a few people can impact all. People have been planting and growing vegetables in America since before the Pilgrims landed. The Indians gave the Pilgrims some pointers on gardening in the new world. Now a few people claim the gases emitting from our small gardens are harming the ecosystem. In response, a ballot question needs to be considered. It’s such a waste of energy and shines a negative light on the election process.
Personally, my wife and I have been vaccinated. We chose to. I exercised my freedom to choose what I believe is best for me. That’s a far cry from Biden’s refusal to allow free choice in such a personal matter, especially given the efficacy of immune protection for those who have already experienced the virus. Not to mention the special medical conditions of some people such that it mitigates against their using the vaccine.
Proponents of Marx and Mao see humanity as a whole, much like a massive thunderstorm, to be handled as an entire single unit, in unison under Communist and collectivist dogma, while advocates of Adam Smith Capitalism and freedom and liberty look at that same storm of humanity and see in each the uniqueness of each individual, each raindrop. And it is that distinction that results in extreme and vastly different results.
During his eight years in the Oval Office, Obama employed many of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules” but he was under the proverbial microscope and unable to make drastic moves as quickly as he wanted. He also discovered that neither “fundamental transformation” nor social re-engineering was going to come cheap. It needed a bankroll.
