A common word, a general term. A pin on which something turns.
We are in the middle of Autumn in the northern hemisphere. We turn from summer to winter by way of this season. Gradually, the heat and light wane as cold and darkness wax. Could this be metaphor concerning the fate of our Republic? Maybe.
The wealth nd power amassed against us is formidable. But they simply cannot stop us unless we ourselves give up. That's why massive efforts to undermine and dispirit us are underway. The devil's trick is to deceive us into thinking our cause is hopeless. It is not.
Speak up, speak out, reveal tyranny. Counter their moves and motives with our own.
Election time is here and the same tired pap is being shoveled. We are playing the hand we are dealt. Within the miasma, seek out those who can counter the tide of tyranny. Fight every day in word and deed. For those in office are accountable to US. Many are the arrogant who believe otherwise.
Many are those who amazingly buy the same tainted product. Some are just stupid, others think there is no alternative, that a deal with the devil now will buy time. You know, like feeding others to the alligators as we are a$$ deep. Maybe zombies is a better analogy today -s-.
Am I inside an empty fuel tank, my words echoing hollowly? You decide.
Listen to these words:
"And because it may be too great a temptation to human frailty, apt to grasp at power, for the same persons, who have the power of making laws, to have also in their hands the power to execute them, whereby they may exempt themselves from obedience to the laws they make, and suit the law, both in its making, and execution, to their own private advantage, and thereby come to have a distinct interest from the rest of the community, contrary to the end of society and government: therefore in well ordered commonwealths, where the good of the whole is so considered, as it ought, the legislative power is put into the hands of divers persons, who duly assembled, have by themselves, or jointly with others, a power to make laws, which when they have done, being separated again, they are themselves subject to the laws they have made; which is a new and near tie upon them, to take care, that they make them for the public good."-- John Locke(1632-1704) English philosopher and political theorist. Considered the ideological progenitor of the American Revolution and who, by far, was the most often non-biblical writer quoted by the Founding Fathers of the USA.
For the cold and darkness are coming. Will you fight?
