YES, The United State is a divided nation. We have one faction in the United States that believes in the supremacy of the individual; that is that each individual should be free to make their own decisions, live their own live, and be responsible for the consequences of their own decisions. The other faction believes that the group is superior to the individual and those who would deviate from the dictates of the group must be punished and ostracized.
Societies that favor the individualist approach will be more free and more prosperous. These societies understand that the freedom to prosper and excel is the driving force behind that freedom and prosperity. Prosperity is infinite and the increased prosperity of one will result in a multiplier that increases prosperity for all. Prosperity has brought about societies that are freer, more accepting, more encouraging, higher standards of living with much lower rates of poverty, crime, illiteracy, and unhappiness.
Societies that favor the collectivist approach will result in control of the people by the self-designated elite or dictatorship. Individuals who refuse to conform to the demands of the elite will be ostracized, demonized, separated, and ultimately eliminated. As aspirations and dreams are discouraged, indeed punished, innovation and advancement decline as does freedom and prosperity. Poverty, crime, illiteracy, and unhappiness increase exponentially. Families break apart. Alcohol and drug dependency, increase, and as natural order to society declines, order is maintained through a system of arbitrary law imposed by the elite.
The collectivist movement is antithetical to human nature. All people are not the same. We have different dreams and aspirations. As children we do not recognize different physical characteristics of people such as skin color, we have no idea about differences in nationalities or religions, we are accepting until we are taught to hate. The collectivist movement has proven that it survives based on creating hate between different groups, making one group the victim and the other the oppressor. Racism and hate are critical for the advancement and maintenance of a collectivist society.
The individualist movement is hindered by racism and hate. Individualists believe that we are all unique and have qualities critical to a free and prosperous society. We champion and encourage any individual who will strive to set the bar higher for all of us, whether that bar is in the field of medicine, exploration, artistic achievements, athletic achievements, business achievements, or achievements in the humanities. Freedom and prosperity abound because when one goal has been achieved, it establishes another goal for somebody else to reach.
The collectivist movement demands conformity. The individualist movement demands individuality. The collectivist movement insists on indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation to achieve and control the power over the many by the few. The individualist movement requires education, facts and honesty, and encouragement and recognition.
The United States was founded as an individualist nation. Those who would call themselves conservatives or Freedom Loving Americans still adhere to the fundamentals of individualism. Those who have proclaimed that the United States must be transformed, are telling us that the United States must become a collectivist nation. Which movement prevails will determine the future course for the United States. The results of the different philosophies are inevitable.
Choices and decisions must be made. Those who determine to take the course of least resistance and do nothing are in fact making a choice. Freedom and prosperity, or individualism is the more difficult road to follow because it requires positive action. Enslavement or collectivism is a simple road to follow because it requires no action or negative action. What will you choose?
When people are asked what is socialism or communism, they generally reply that it is government ownership of private property or more specifically government ownership or control of all productive property. This is of course correct; however, communism is much more. Lenin told us that democracy always brings socialism and socialism is the gateway to communism. So, what else would be involved? It is a host of things and they are taking place in the United States today under the direction of the Democrat party.
Marx’s manifesto is famous for summing up his theory of Communism with a single sentence: “Abolition of private property.” But this was hardly the only thing the philosopher believed must be abolished from society in the victims’ march to utopia. In his manifesto, Marx highlighted five additional ideas and institutions for eradication.
1. The Family
Marx admits that destroying the family is a thorny topic, even for revolutionaries. “Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists,” he writes.
But he said opponents of this idea fail to understand a key fact about the family.
“On what foundation is the present family, the bourgeois family, based? On capital, on private gain. In its completely developed form, this family exists only among the bourgeoisie,” he writes.
Best of all, abolishing the family would be relatively easy once private property was abolished. “The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital.”
Marx believed individuality was antithetical to the egalitarianism he envisioned. Therefore, the “individual” must “be swept out of the way, and made impossible.”
Individuality was a social construction of a capitalist society and was deeply intertwined with capital itself.
“In bourgeois society capital is independent and has individuality, while the living person is dependent and has no individuality,” he wrote. “And the abolition of this state of things is called by the bourgeois, abolition of individuality and freedom! And rightly so. The abolition of bourgeois individuality, bourgeois independence, and bourgeois freedom is undoubtedly aimed at.”
3. Eternal Truths
Marx did not appear to believe that any truth existed beyond class struggle.
“The ruling ideas of each age have ever been the ideas of its ruling class,” he argued. “When the ancient world was in its last throes, the ancient religions were overcome by Christianity. When Christian ideas succumbed in the 18th century to rationalist ideas, feudal society fought its death battle with the then revolutionary bourgeoisie.”
He recognized how radical this idea would sound to his readers, particularly since Communism does not seek to modify truth, but to overthrow it. But he argued these people were missing the larger picture.
“‘Undoubtedly,’ it will be said, ‘religious, moral, philosophical, and juridical ideas have been modified in the course of historical development. But religion, morality, philosophy, political science, and law, constantly survived this change.
There are, besides, eternal truths, such as Freedom, Justice, etc., that are common to all states of society. But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience.’
What does this accusation reduce itself to? The history of all past society has consisted in the development of class antagonisms, antagonisms that assumed different forms at different epochs.”
Communists, Marx said, are reproached for seeking to abolish countries. These people fail to understand the nature of the proletariat, he wrote.
“The working men have no country. We cannot take from them what they have not got. Since the proletariat must first of all acquire political supremacy, must rise to be the leading class of the nation, must constitute itself the nation, it is so far, itself national, though not in the bourgeois sense of the word.”
Furthermore, largely because of capitalism, he saw hostilities between people of different backgrounds receding. As the proletariat grew in power, there soon would be no need for nations, he wrote.
“National differences and antagonism between peoples are daily more and more vanishing, owing to the development of the bourgeoisie, to freedom of commerce, to the world market, to uniformity in the mode of production and in the conditions of life corresponding thereto.”
5. The Past
Marx saw tradition as a tool of the bourgeoisie. Adherence to the past served as a mere distraction in proletariat’s quest for emancipation and supremacy.
“In bourgeois society,” Marx wrote, “the past dominates the present; in Communist society, the present dominates the past.”
Borrowed from Intellectual Takeout.
The collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, - all virtually the same) are not concocting new strategies, but are following the strategies put forth by their chief philosopher, Karl Marx. Comrade Obama says we must "reimagine policing". Comrade Tlaib calls to end all policing. Comrade Omar defends call to dismantle Minneapolis police: You can't reform a department 'rotten to the root'.
These devoted communists are not original in these thoughts, but are simply echoing what Karl Marx told them when Marx said that after a successful revolution, many of the institutions of the capitalist state remain relatively intact. These may include the police force. If it is permitted to continue to exist, it will pose a grievous threat to the new regime. Through it a counterrevolution may be organized which will threaten to overthrow the dictatorship of the proletariat. This institution of the capitalist state must be destroyed.
The United States today is either in or entering the time of the revolution controlled by the Dictatorship of the proletariat. Marx told us that despotic means would be necessary to complete the transformation. This would be a time where any semblance to rule of law must be abandoned, and arbitrary law must be imposed. A key element of imposing arbitrary law is the uninhibited use of intimidation in any form.
The purpose of the revolution is to overthrow the existing government and to replace it by the dictatorship of the Proletariat, which is actually the dictatorship of the Communist Party over the oppressed. The Communist Party monopolizes all the levers of power.
Lenin defined the dictatorship of the proletariat as follows: “The dictatorship of the proletariat is the rule-unrestricted by law and based on force-of the proletariat over the oppressors, a rule enjoying the sympathy and support of the laboring and exploited masses.”
Any who do not understand that the Democrat party has indeed become the Communist Party of the United States is doing so because they are a part of the indoctrinated and thus wearing blinders, they are committed to the communist movement, or they are a part of those who call themselves Freedom Loving Americans, but refuse to take the time to understand that this transformation taking place in America today is orchestrated and dedicated to the transformation of the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state.
If you are a part of the latter, your refusal will lead to the day, which is not that far in the distant, when you will live under a tyrannical government that dictates not only how you will live, but also what you must think. If this is not what you want, you must immediately become a part of the irate and tireless minority dedicated to “Setting Brushfires of Freedom”.
The founding of the United States was unique. We were established on the principles that our rights and liberties come from our Creator and not from man or government, that sovereignty must rest in the people and not the government, and that we would be a republic and not a democracy. Many in America strongly disagree with those founding principles and are telling us that government must control all rights and liberties, government must be the sovereign, and we are a democracy.
Government today controls the American people in every aspect of their lives; their work, their home life, their family life, their religious life, their education, their social life, which means government is telling people how to live their lives and how to think. This is the essence of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat, all virtually the same).
The question every Freedom Loving American must ask is how we again become the sovereign and have the government be the servant. We must understand the principles upon which we were founded and return to those proven principles. Here are the “Principles of Liberty in our Founding Documents”. Read them, study them, and if you wish to once again live in a nation that champions individual liberty and freedom, be about “Setting Brushfires of Freedom”.
The 28 Principles of Freedom and Liberty:
Principle 1. The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law. Natural law was defined as the order in which the Creator made everything work properly. There are certain laws which govern the entire universe, and just as Thomas Jefferson said in the Declaration of Independence, there are laws which govern in the affairs of men which are "the laws of nature and of nature's God." If governments and human relationships are formed according to these laws, they will succeed, if not, they will surely fail, as history has proven. (First paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.)
Principle 2. A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong. The Founders knew they could not succeed in this political building without the support of the "Supreme Judge of the world" and without a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence ." They knew this would not happen unless they kept His commandments which amounted to being virtuous and morally strong. (Last paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.)
Principle 3. The most promising method of securing a virtuous and morally stable people is to elect virtuous leaders. No greater case can be made of the damage done to a free people by power-hungry and tyrannical leaders than the long list of abuses Thomas Jefferson listed in the Declaration. While directed at King George, these abuses are typical of leaders who are without virtue and morality. (List of grievances in the Declaration of Independence)
Principle 4. Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained. As in Principle 2, the Founders knew they could not succeed in this political building without the support of the "Supreme Judge of the world" and without a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence ." They believed they would have His support and protection if they relied on Him, constantly kept His laws, and taught their children to do likewise. (Last paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.)
Principle 5. All things were created by God, therefore upon Him all mankind are equally dependent, and to Him they are equally responsible. The Founders considered the existence of the Creator as the most fundamental premise underlying all self-evident truth. The words Nature's God, Creator, created, Supreme Judge of the Universe, and Divine Providence are used throughout the Declaration of Independence.
Principle 6. All men are created equal. (An exact quote from the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence)
Principle 7. The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things. "-That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men." (Second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence)
Principle 8. Men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. (Second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence)
Principle 9. To protect man's rights, God has revealed certain principles of divine law. The Founders knew that God had revealed certain laws for human happiness, such as laws against killing, stealing, adultery, lying, coveting, etc. These are reflected in the right of man to form a government to protect his unalienable rights of life, liberty, and property outlined in the Declaration and the Bill of Rights.
Principle 10. The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people. The last paragraph of the Declaration makes it clear that the people as a whole, by their representatives in Congress, have complete authority from the Supreme Judge of the Universe to govern themselves in every way and to take their rightful place among the sovereign peoples of the earth.
Principle 11. The majority of the people may alter or abolish a government which has become tyrannical. The second paragraph of the Declaration makes it clear that the people have a God-given right to throw off dictators and establish a government that will better protect them in their rights.
Principle 12. The United States of America shall be a republic. Article 1.2.1 of the Constitution sets forth the provision that gives the American people the right to vote for their own representatives, thereby making the United States a constitutional republic of the people.
Principle 13. A constitution should be structured to permanently protect the people from the human frailties of their rulers. In forming our government on the basis of Natural Law, the Founders dealt directly with the human nature characteristic that power almost always corrupts. The separation of powers, checks and balances, and limited governmental powers in the Constitution were all methods employed to check the human frailties which result in run-away power. That is why the Constitution will never be obsolete or outdated.
Principle 14. Life and liberty are secure only so long as the right of property is secure. The fifth amendment of the Bill of Rights specifically prohibits the federal government from taking private property of the people for public use without just compensation. It is a recognition of the sacred right to property and that property is really an extension of one's life and liberty.
Principle 15. The highest level of prosperity occurs when there is a free-market economy and a minimum of government regulations. Other than setting up a proper monetary system and ensuring the free flow of commerce between the states, no power is given to congress to regulate economic affairs of the people. It is a manifest intent to keep the federal government completely out of the free-market economy and to leave any needed regulation to the states.
Principle 16. The government should be separated into three branches - legislative, executive, and judicial. Articles I, II, and III of the Constitution create this beautiful separation of powers to prevent the tyranny of consolidated government.
Principle 17. A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power. This constitutional system of pitting human nature against human nature by checking each other's power is pure genius.
Principle 18. The unalienable rights of the people are most likely to be preserved if the principles of government are set forth in a written constitution. Of the 200 or so nations on the earth today, about 125 of them have written constitutions. However, ours is the oldest one-one of the youngest nations has the oldest written Constitution. The Founders were the first in modern times to realize that the best way to preserve good government and the rights of the people, is to write them down.
Principle 19. Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to government, all others being retained in the people. Article 1.8 contains the twenty powers delegated to congress; Article II contains the six areas of responsibility of the president; and, Article III contains the eleven kinds of cases assigned to the federal courts. The Tenth Amendment reminds us that all other powers are reserved to the states and the people.
Principle 20. Efficiency and dispatch require government to operate according to the will of the majority, but constitutional provisions must be made to protect the rights of the minority. Article VI declares the Constitution to be the supreme law of the land. If a law is passed which violates the rights of people, it can be declared null and void by the guardians of the Constitution.
Principle 21. Strong local self-government is the keystone to preserving human freedom. The Tenth Amendment leaves most power to govern with the states and local governments. This is where freedom really manifests itself.
Principle 22. A free people should be governed by law and not by the whims of men. The people reserve the right in Article I.1.1 not to be governed by any law not passed by their representatives. Article III gives the power to the judiciary to prevent a citizen from being prosecuted by an unjust law which violates the unalienable rights of the people.
Principle 23. A free society cannot survive as a republic without a broad program of general education. The reaction of King George to the list of grievances in the Declaration of Independence is an example of why tyrants want to keep the people ignorant of their actions. In order to preserve and encourage the sacred right of people to gain knowledge, the Constitution forbids the federal government from involving itself in education of the people. It leaves this responsibility to the states and the people where it can be locally controlled. (Tenth Amendment)
Principle 24. A free people will not survive unless they stay strong. Article 1.8 gives Congress the power to maintain a military.
Principle 25. "Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations - entangling alliances with none." No authority can be found in the Constitution for the United States to tie its sovereignty to any other nation or to give the people's money to foreign rulers.
Principle 26. The core unit which determines the strength of any society is the family; therefore, the government should foster and protect its integrity. No authority can be found in the Constitution to involve the federal government in family affairs. The Founders knew any laws dealing with these kinds of sensitive issues must be kept close to the people, thereby best preserving this most sacred institution.
Principle 27. The burden of debt is as destructive to freedom as subjugation by conquest. Article 1.8 lists "to pay the debts" as the first use of public funds. The Founders considered it immoral to pass debts on to the next generation.
Principle 28. The United States has a manifest destiny to be an example and a blessing to the entire human race. The entire Constitution was intended to be such a model for the world of how a people can govern themselves and thereby enjoy an unlimited amount of freedom, prosperity, and peace. Our greatest export was to be freedom.
The United States is a unique nation. There is no other like it. We were founded on the basis that we are individuals. We believed in self-dependence and not government dependence. We took pride in not being on welfare, which we all knew was the same as taking from those who went to work every day. We would help our fellow citizens, not because we had to, but because we wanted to help them. We all knew that the more dependent people were on government, the weaker our nation would be, and being an American meant we were concerned about the strength and prosperity of the nation.
This was recognized by Alexis de Tocqueville. He was a young man from France who came to the United States for nine months in 1831 and 1832. He observed Americans, interviewed Americans, and then wrote “Democracy in America”. One of his observations reveals what has changed in America.
“It is not the administrative but the political effects of the local system that I most admire in America. In the United States the interests of the country are everywhere kept in view; they are an object of solicitude to the people of the whole Union, and every citizen is as warmly attached to them as if they were his own. He takes pride in the glory of his nation; he boasts of its success, to which he conceives himself to have contributed, and he rejoices in the general prosperity by which he profits. The feeling he entertains toward the State is analogous to that which unites him with his family, and it is by a kind of egotism that he interests himself in the welfare of his country.
The European generally submits to a public officer because he represents a superior force: but to an American he represents a right. In America it may be said that no one renders obedience to man, but to justice and to law. If the opinion which the citizen entertains of himself is exaggerated, it is at least salutary; he unhesitantly confides in his own powers, which appear to him to be all-sufficient. When a private individual mandates an undertaking, however directly connected it may be with the welfare of society, he never thinks of soliciting the co-operation of the Government, but he publishes his plan, offers to execute it himself, courts the assistance of other individuals, and struggles manfully against all obstacles. Undoubtedly hi is often less successful than the State might have been in his position; but in the end the sum of these private undertakings far exceeds all that the Government could have done.”
No longer do Americans take pride in the glory of the nation. Our schools today teach our children that our nation is evil. The left emphasizes this belief through a steady stream of propaganda. No longer do many Americans believe it is admirable to be self-sufficient, but they are taught that they are owed government benefits, and it is the duty of the government, through government programs, to provide their needs. Many Americans take pride in being government reliant.
This change in the America de Tocqueville described, and the America of today, has been a carefully crafted plan of the left. The collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) has purposefully sought to bring about this transformation. A people who are taught to take pride in self-reliance, to take pride in accomplishment, and to take pride in a nation that does the same, is an enemy of the state the left or the Democrats believe the United States should become.
To regain the greatness of a nation described in “Democracy in America”, all Freedom Loving Americans must understand the differences between the American de Tocqueville saw and the America the Democrats desire. These Freedom Loving Americans must than decide which America they want, and if it is not the same the Democrats want, the Freedom Loving American must become dedicated to “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” with the same commitment Samuel Adams had. It is our choice which America will survive.
It is no secret that the collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats, - all virtually the same) are seeking to make the United States a Marxist totalitarian state. They have stated this in so many different forms, but the statement by Biden when he announced his assault on the “Second Amendment” and then defended the assault by declaring that “no amendment is absolute” was as telling as was Obama’s statement when he said that the United States was about to be transformed.
This statement was a statement Biden has come to believe, but any observant person would understand it was not a statement Biden could have written. Clearly, Biden is not writing his own material. His cognitive abilities, which were never great, are now non-existent. I mention this because it makes the terrifying statement about amendments even more terrifying. This movement toward tyranny is dominant within the new regime as well as the long-established deep state.
Tyranny cannot exist when a nation adheres to “rule of law”. Our Constitution was established as the law of the land and it was always to be the supreme law. Our Constitution was ratified on the condition that specific liberties be stated and always protected. This was the purpose of the Bill of Rights. These first ten amendments are absolute, and the language clearly states this. The purpose behind this thinking was so that people in government would not be able to treat these protections as being relative based on the political philosophy of a group of people. The requirement that these liberties could not be infringed leaves no flexibility.
If the Constitution, including the protected liberties, are deemed to be relative, they in fact do not exist. This is the dream of any aspiring dictator. Relative law denounces “rule of law” and supports “arbitrary law”.
If the amendments are not absolute, as Biden claims, they have no meaning whatsoever. They become a part of the “living constitution” as promoted by the collectivists in the United States today. We can change the meaning of the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, or any law, to mean what we want it to mean at any time to bring about the desired ends of transforming the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state.
The purpose of the Constitution, the purpose of the Bill of Rights, was to protect the people from exactly what Biden is proposing; that is to continue the program of disarming citizens. This is the same program the collectivists are using to negate the protections of the First Amendment as well.
The collectivists understand that protection of individual liberties and rights can not exist under their stated end the United States being a Marxist totalitarian state. There are no means the collectivist will not use to achieve that end.
I wrote the book “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” because I was continually asked what the ordinary Freedom Loving American can do to help reverse the move in the United States toward collectivism or in reality reverse the movement that is taking us down “The Road to Tyranny.” We have known for a long time, since at least the times of Woodrow Wilson, that the Democrat party was advocating the same philosophy as were group of dissidents that had gatherer in Europe who were following the teachings of Karl Marx. We also know that the regime of Franklin Roosevelt was infiltrated with communists and yes controlled by communists, even to the point where in the 1944 election, Stalin directed the Communist Party in America to fully support the re-election of Franklin Roosevelt.
This movement continued into the 21st century with the Marxist movement having an even greater hold on the Democrat party.
“WorldNetDaily reported on November 11, 2002:
Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the likely new minority leader in the House of Representatives, serves on the executive committee of the socialist-leaning Progressive Caucus, a bloc of about 60 votes or nearly 30 percent of the minority vote in the lower chamber.
Until 1999, the website of the Progressive Caucus was hosted by the Democratic Socialists of America. Following an expose of the link between the two organizations in WorldNetDaily, the Progressive Caucus established its own website under the auspices of Congress. Another officer of the Progressive Caucus, and one of its guiding lights, is avowed socialist Rep. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent.
The Democratic Socialists of America's chief organizing goal is to work within the Democratic Party and remove the stigma attached to "socialism" in the eyes of most Americans.
‘Stress our Democratic Party strategy and electoral work,’ explains an organizing document of the DSA. ‘The Democratic Party is something the public understands, and association with it takes the edge off. Stressing our Democratic Party work will establish some distance from the radical subculture and help integrate you to the milieu of the young liberals.’
Nevertheless, the goal of the Democratic Socialists of America has never been deeply hidden. Prior to the cleanup of its website in 1999, the DSA included a song list featuring "The Internationale," the worldwide anthem of communism and socialism. Another song on the site was "Red Revolution" sung to the tune of "Red Robin." The lyrics went: "When the Red Revolution brings its solution along, along, there'll be no more lootin' when we start shootin' that Wall Street throng. ..." Another song removed after WorldNetDaily's expose was "Are You Sleeping, Bourgeoisie?" The lyrics went: "Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping? Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie. And when the revolution comes, We'll kill you all with knives and guns, Bourgeoisie, Bourgeoisie.’"
The Democrat party has been an active and cooperating part of the communist movement to transform the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state. The Democrat party has not hidden this fact but has become more and more boisterous that this was their plan as the communist inspired tactics of indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation become a greater and greater force. Nevertheless, Freedom Loving American parents continued to send their children to the indoctrinating public schools, read the propaganda spewing news outlets, and bow to the intimidating forces including the politically correct movement that promotes hate, division, and racism.
If we are to reverse this movement, which is a movement that always ends in a society filled with crime, misery, poverty, and enslavement of the masses, we must as Freedom Loving Americans take the time to understand this evil. We must understand how this movement supported by the Democrat party is the antithesis of our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution including the Bill of Rights, our basic founding principles of freedom and liberty, and our founding ideology of Individualism.
We must then begin to talk about the differences between Americanism and what the Democrats are supporting, communism. Never argue, listen, show an interest, and most importantly ask questions. Remember, many on the left do not understand they are supporting communism. They certainly do not understand what communism is. They have been brainwashed to believe it is about equality and social justice. We must be about planting seeds in these indoctrinated minds. Understand, this is a process. It did not happen overnight, and it will not be reversed overnight, but we must begin the process of “Setting Brushfires of Freedom” today. The alternative is a lifetime of slavery to a tyrannical government for our posterity.
Confused is defined as being unable to think clearly; bewildered. When a person is told completely different scenarios from organizations that are reputed to base their information on science and not politics, this will cause confusion. That is the state in which the world lives today. For instance, we are told that black lives matter by the BLM movement and the far left, yet they advocate for abortion which kills black babies. Do Black Lives Matter and if so why not the life of the unborn black baby.
We have known from the beginning of time that there are two sexes, male and female. We have observed that the genitalia of males and females are different and clearly indicate the sex of the individual. Science has stated that males have X and Y Chromosomes, and females have only X chromosomes. This is true in all placental mammals. Yet today, according to CNN There’s No Way to Tell If A Baby Is A Boy or A Girl. Throughout history you could look at the genitalia of the child or check the chromosomes, but according to CNN, not now.
The same is true with the China Virus. From the beginning we have been told that the deaths from the virus would be well over 2.2 million in the United States in a years’ time. Even the greatly inflated numbers of actual deaths are less than 25% of that initial number that was supported by United States government bureaucrats. Several states with collectivist governors locked down their states. This caused economic hardship, depression, increased suicides, especially among the youth, and caused deaths due to other reasons that surpassed the number of deaths caused BY the China Virus.
The end all to this virus, that appears to be a flu like virus, was to be the vaccination. The CDC, which we are told relies on science, has told us that it is important to be vaccinated because All COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have been shown to be highly effective at preventing COVID-19, and getting vaccinated yourself, protects people around you. Many elected officials, bureaucrats, technocrats, and “experts” are telling us that we must be vaccinated and that a vaccine passport should be required for individuals to be able to function in society.
However, the World Health Organization, which we are also told relies on science, said that it is not in favor of requiring vaccine passports for travel given uncertainty over the ability of inoculations to prevent virus transmissions, along with concerns about discrimination, Reuters reported.
WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris said the agency "would not like to see the vaccination passport as a requirement for entry or exit because we are not certain at this stage that the vaccine prevents transmission," the outlet added.
Again, great confusion.
The people of the United States have surrendered their liberties and have told the government they have the authority to say what jobs are essential, what businesses can be open and under what conditions, who can and cannot go outside, who must wear face coverings that science has proven have no preventive benefits (Colleen Huber NMD reported a recent review found that masks had no effect specifically against Covid-19), and how far apart people must stand while waiting to go through TSA check but be shoulder to shoulder for hours while flying to their destination. Government has told us this control is necessary because it will save millions of American lives. Of course, this is a lie.
In February of 2020, the American people were told, according to a report from the Imperial College of London Covid-19 Response Team, even taking critical steps such as social distancing of the entire population, isolation of the sick in their homes, and quarantining family members of the sick, the epidemic will likely soon overwhelm the critical care capacity of American hospitals, according to the report, and would likely kill well over 2.2 million people. These critical steps have been taken on steroids, and the hospital have not been overwhelmed nor have well over 2.2 million people died.
According to USA Facts, as of April 4, 2021, 545,052 people have died who would have had some association with the virus. We know most of these reported deaths were people who died with the virus and some with no trace of the virus. The actual number of people who died from the virus is not being revealed. We also know that the vast majority of the deaths were elderly people who had other medical conditions including obesity.
California has been a state that has taken the state imposed “preventive” steps to the extreme. People were not allowed to go outside by themselves on isolated beaches and trails without wearing a mask. Schools have been closed. Churches were closed. Small businesses, including restaurants were closed. The governor stated that the China Virus allowed him to end many liberties he had intended to end before the arrival of the China Virus.
The Florida governor took the opposite approach. He said people must retain their liberties. Schools remained open. Churches remained open. Small businesses and restaurants remained open.
What we know to date is that Californian has had 58,429 deaths with a population of 39,600,000 people. That would mean they have had 147 deaths per 100,000 people. Florida has a population of 22,200,000 and they have had 33,695 deaths or a rate of 151 deaths per 100,000 people. Florida has a much older population compared to California. The average age for Florida residents is 42 while the average age for California residents is 36. 20% of the population in Florida is 65 or older while that percentage in California is 15%.
Today Florida has a vibrant economy and the people have retained their liberties. Today California has a struggling economy with a growing homeless population and the people have surrendered their liberties and bow to the wishes of a tyrannical government. You must ask yourself which scenario you support. Your answer will clearly state if you are an individualist (Freedom Loving American) or a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same).
The worldwide left would have us believe they abhor racism. That is a lie. The left promotes racism. What Marx told the left to do they are doing and that is to create victims. The left is saying that all white males are oppressors, and all nonwhite people are victims. The left claims that it is their purpose to protect and support these victims, and yet the left denounces anti-racism teachings and promotes racist teaching.
A non racist accepts all people and pays no regard to skin color, nationality, sex, or any other physical attributes of an individual. Martin Luther King, Jr. told us that it was his dream that someday his children would be judged on the content of their character and not the color of their skin. The left is telling us today that Dr. King’s dream should be strongly, openly, and if necessary violently opposed. We see this opposition in the antics of Antifa, BLM, leftist rioters, and the support for these actions by leftists including the Democrat party.
The world has been instructed on how to end all racism. This instruction can be read in Mark 12: 29-31 where we are told “29 Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
If we love the Lord our God and we love our neighbor, all racism of any form would end. Notice, we are commanded to love our neighbor. There are no qualifications that we love our neighbor such as if they look and think like us. No, those characteristics are never mentioned, but we are to love our neighbor paying no attention to skin color, nationality, or sex.
In the parable of the Good Samaritan, we are told that our neighbor is everybody including one who is different from us as much as those who are like us. Many of the Jews were racists in those days. The Jews did not like Samaritans simply because they were Samaritans, and yet in this story it is the Samaritan who shows the Jew, who was a victim of robbers, mercy. Jesus taught all are neighbors regardless of skin color, sex, or nationality.
Nevertheless, despite these teachings that clearly teach we are not to be racist, the left is telling us that the teachings of the Bible can not be taught in our schools or be referred to in public forums, because they teach racism. That is clearly a lie.
The left, yes the left who claims they oppose racism, is saying that the ideology of Islam must be taught in our schools and promoted in our society. The left would have us believe this is a way to reduce racism. Here is what Islam teaches.
Quran (9:5) - "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them."
Quran (47:3-4) - "Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord... So, when you meet those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly. If it had been Allah's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them. But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost."
The one teaches love, forgiveness, understanding, and the other teaches killing, bondage, and hate. The one is not racist and the other is the epitome of racist. Yet the left denounces and scorns the teachings of love and acceptance of all regardless of skin color, nationality, or sex, while promoting and praising the teachings of the ultimate racist ideas.
The left lies when it tells us it opposes racism. If they did, they would teach to love your neighbor as yourself, and not to hate and kill those who are different from you.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
