“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” -George Orwell (1903-1950)
The Three Questions
The three, most basic, philosophical questions for an individual or a society are the following:
Who am I?
What am I?
Where am I?
Accordingly, in this time of biological stress eliciting severe, negative strains, as a nation let us ask ourselves those three questions.
Who are we? We are these United States of America, founded as a patriarchal, Christian nation with a written constitution guaranteeing us citizens life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the political context of a democratic republic guided by moderation, prudence, and charity.
What are we? We now are a fragmenting, declining, increasingly matriarchal. republican democracy on fire — a nation mired in mounting debt; defeated in serial, undeclared wars; and descended into depravity beyond Biblical proportions.
Where are we? Geographically, we share North America with Canada. Operationally, we are well into having completed national suicide, currently assisted by a highly contagious, viral epidemic of modest lethality mainly for the elderly and chronically infirm. Having sold our national soul to superstition by embracing personal opinion based upon arrogant ignorance and abstract ideology divorced from reality — opinion and ideology wrapped in immediate but ultimately self-destructive gratification, we now stand naked and affrighted in the fiery gateway to a Hell of our own making.
Can we change? Yes.
Shall we? Unlikely.
Why unlikely? Most people, especially those in Big Government, Big Media, and Big Education want to hear only self-serving untruth. Recall the following words of advice:
“Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” -Matthew 7:6
So, why bother fighting the good fight? Faith in the future. Faith in youth.
Perhaps, when this virus has run its own course, the jolt will have cleared the vision of the young now blinded by superstitious indoctrination from their elders. Perhaps, the young will resurrect the vision of our Founding Fathers. To do so, they will need a detailed formula to remedy the injuries of the past — a detailed, scientific formula such as found in a recent novel in which science and politics intersect, Retribution Fever (2018).
To continue allowing ourselves to be led down the current Path to Perdition is proving our undoing. Behavior has its consequences. Wishing doesn’t make it so.
For American youth, there is a better future way than their elders’ current way, a scientific not a superstitious way. Science and survive versus superstition and succumb. Your choice. Your challenge.
