Some see, few know, many choose to wander aimlessly in a fog, devoid of sunlight. I seek the light of day and leave the others to their chosen realm of ignorance. They are the ones who have brought this great nation down. I write only for the benefit of those who possess the courage required to restore our birthright.

REAPING THE WHIRLWIND


The free online dictionary defines 'Apathy' as: "Lack of interest or concern, especially regarding matters of general importance or appeal; indifference." I am more inclined to define it as "A people or society that has lost its moral compass", for that is what I see around me. Of many, I cannot even say that they have gone bad, only that they have lost the will to go at all. Their own self interests are all that matter, and the less effort required to maintain those interests, the better.

Look to electricity. It bolts across and from the sky splintering great trees. It flows through wires at nearly the speed of light with a potential to do things as yet unimagined. It powers cars, lights darkened passages, and allows us to communicate instantaneously with someone on the other side of the world. 

Then we have static electricity. Uncontrolled, undirected, unmoving; it can be collected by rubbing two dissimilar objects together but even when collected it has only one potential; a rude awakening for someone. Should that not occur then that static electricity will simply dissipate.

Is that to be America's future? Static, devoid of purpose, a rude awakening and/or dissipating? Are we to be relegated to the pages of history due to the apathy that has become ingrained in our society? Have we grown so static in our daily lives, that we are destined only to dissipate as a once great people due to a shared lack of interest? If so I can only conclude that this would be justice, wrought by, and upon, a people undeserving of a better tomorrow.

Justice! A beautiful word to be certain, but even justice has its dark side. What of our grandchildren? Are the sins of the fathers to be visited upon those unborn generations? We, the apathetic were born to a nation where one could be free to prosper or fail depending upon his or her own actions and talents, and we are knowingly letting that freedom die. In the affairs of men there is always an ongoing struggle between freedom and tyranny. If you but take the time to look, tyranny is now winning.

Our ancestors opposed a king who was far more benevolent than those who now reign supreme. These people are quite serious in their plan to seek absolute power over all the citizens of this nation. They are also quite intent on reinstalling the horrid state of slavery, and it will not be limited to one race, one sect, or one pitiful group of our people. It will be slavery for all they find useful, and death camps for the rest.

Unlike many of our citizens these people have studied history and learned from the best; or perhaps I should say; the worst. Their every actions follows the agendas advanced by the Nazis and the communists in the past. In addition to those techniques they have now overlaid their plan with 21st century technology. As you know, they can now monitor our every communication, and that monitoring is not based on any desire to better safeguard our freedoms. It is but another form of controlling the masses.

But back to the children ... What befalls us will be of our own making, due in part to apathy, in part to ignorance, and in part to cowardice. What lies before us we have brought on ourselves, but it is wretched to think of the unborn coming into a retrograde world of slavery, their only crime being that they are the descendants of those who lacked the wisdom and courage to safeguard the rights of posterity; a people inert, devoid of will power, lost in a fog, and fearful of the light. What can such a people bequeath the young? 

Looking across the pages of history to our Founders and pioneers, I shudder in horror as I behold the people of today. Initially the Founders had no intent of rebelling against England. Reeling under a tax burden of one and a half percent they signed petitions, sought redress, and protested as we have in the past. The primary difference between them and us was character. 'Give me liberty or give me death." Now those were words of conviction. Today it would most likely be. "Well, I don't want to die or do without anything, so let's negotiate the situation."

Do you know how to capture and domesticate wild pigs?

First off you build one wall of the pen and place food and water next to it. Wait until the pigs come and eat, and then build another wall, again stocking the partially built pen with food. Then comes the third wall and yet more food and water. By now the pigs are used to the easy pickins and they will be waiting for you to provide their daily needs. Then you build the gate, leave it open and supply the now complete pen with food. While they are getting their fill, you close the gate.

None provided for the welfare of the colonists. They lived off of their own efforts and developed a fierce pride and sense of independence. There was no penning such people in, and when they felt oppressed they rebelled. That has changed over time and we have come to rely on the government to guarantee food in the trough, and now Obama has closed the gate.

Some want to tear the damn gate down, some are yelling "Wake up!", but most are quite content to wallow in the mire and depend on the benevolence of our communist overlord. Almost without fail everyone chooses not to think of that awful "B" word ... Bacon.

And so it goes. We wandered into the trap and unless the few of us tear that gate down, future generations will be born there; born, bred, domesticated from birth to serve the masters.

Ronald Reagan warned us that freedom is always just one generation away from extinction. Only time will tell if this is that generation or if it has the courage to once again do what must be done to carry on the great traditions that made America the land of the free. Will we be willing to pay the price demanded by that tree of liberty, or will we choose to negotiate and bargain away our freedom for a little temporary security? Only time will tell.

  1. I found this and thought it to be appropriate for your week of brilliant writing.

    --Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, Paris, 13 Nov. 1787[2]

    "I do not know whether it is to yourself or Mr. Adams I am to give my thanks for the copy of the new constitution. I beg leave through you to place them where due. It will be yet three weeks before I shall receive them from America. There are very good articles in it: and very bad. I do not know which preponderate.

    What we have lately read in the history of Holland, in the chapter on the Stadtholder, would have sufficed to set me against a Chief magistrate eligible for a long duration, if I had ever been disposed towards one: and what we have always read of the elections of Polish kings should have forever excluded the idea of one continuable for life.

    Wonderful is the effect of impudent and persevering lying. The British ministry have so long hired their gazetteers to repeat and model into every form lies about our being in anarchy, that the world has at length believed them, the English nation has believed them, the ministers themselves have come to believe them, and what is more wonderful, we have believed them ourselves.

    Yet where does this anarchy exist? Where did it ever exist, except in the single instance of Massachusets? And can history produce an instance of a rebellion so honourably conducted? I say nothing of it's motives. They were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. God forbid we should ever be 20. years without such a rebellion.[1]

    The people can not be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13 states independent for 11 years.

    There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each state. What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion?

    And what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?

    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

    Our Convention has been too much impressed by the insurrection of Massachusets: and in the spur of the moment they are setting up a kite to keep the hen yard in order. I hope in god this article will be rectified before the new constitution is accepted."

    --Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, Paris, 13 Nov. 1787[2]

    1. Thank you Glenda, As for Sunday it was another day of research and writing, followed by an encore on Monday. It is now Tuesday morning and after publishing my latest I spent the rest of the night doing further research on the Soros phenomenon. I always exist somewhere between a state of inspiration and total exhaustion, but believe that Thomas Jefferson would understand and approve..
      David Horowitz is without a doubt one of our finest patriots and I am so indebted to him for his vast contribution of information in his efforts to defend liberty at all costs.
      Above, I particularly like Jefferson's comment ".The people can not be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty."
      Certainly one of our most intellectual, if not the most intellectual, President that we have ever had. We must find that tree of liberty he referred to. It must be cared for by those who grasp its importance.
