I hear complaint after complaint about what is happening in our country and frankly around the world. During Q & A after speaking, an all to common consensus is that things have gone to far for those of us who love freedom to turn the ship around and head toward freedom and independence. There were so many times our founders could have quit and said the fight to be free and independent is not worth the sacrifice that must be made. Thank you, Sam Adams, Patrick Henry, George Washington, and so many others who would not acquiesce to the majority of those living in the American colonies.
One of my favorite quotes is by Sam Adams when he said, “It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” Very seldom is the majority correct in any fight for freedom and independence. To many people say that this is not my fight, just leave me alone, we should go along to get along, if we give them what they want this time then they will be satisfied, and all the other excuses we hear to not confront those who wish to control our lives.
Freedom is dependent upon individuals being able to live their own lives, have their own thoughts, without government or society dictating how they must live their lives, how they must think, and how they must act. The most important right to maintain freedom is the right to freedom of speech which enables freedom of thought and enhances ideas and discussions. Any tyrant will always curb freedom of speech and thought by outright limiting speech, exercising censorship, insisting upon a unified press or media, and the skillful use of indoctrination and propaganda.
All of this is happening in the Untied States and the world today. The two most destructive forces the world has seen, destructive of freedom and independence or the individual determining their own lives and their own thoughts, are moving forward at breakneck speeds. Those destructive forces are Collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) and Islam. Both movements have as their stated goal to have all in total conformity to the ideology each professes. They both have stated as such and have proven they will use every means available to achieve their goal of world domination or their dictating the lives and thoughts of all.
Both evils are skillful in their use of propaganda and indoctrination. They both are using as their primary means of moving forward their evil, the public-school system, the media, and the entertainment industry. We see overt and covert examples of this every day. They are both very skillful in labeling any of us who oppose their evil ideology as being the evil aggressor simply because it is our goal to protect and promote freedom and independence that allows the individual to determine how they will live their lives, what their thoughts will be.
I am always asked the question, “So Don, then what can we do.”
We must want freedom and independence as much as Sam Adams wanted it. We must have the spirit of Sam Adams who often stood alone while he willed freedom and independence for all the colonists; freedom and independence meaning that each person would have the right to live their own life and to have their own thoughts.
How do we do this if we do love and want freedom and independence:
Many of you will not like it when I say this, but it is true and if we are to be free and independent, we must state the truth especially when it is unpopular. YOU ONLY UNDERSTAND THE EVILS OF COLLECTIVISM AND ISLAM BASED ON BUMPER STICKER SLOGANS. Both of these evils are permeating every aspect of American life, and often times the evil movement is being supported by those who proclaim they are adamant about promoting freedom and independence.
Therefore, you must educate yourselves. You must understand the destructive ideology of both Collectivism and Islam. You must understand their goals and their methods of implementation. Once you understand it, you must DISCUSS it with family, friends, and others. I said discuss; do not argue. Once you start to argue you have lost. Your goal is to plant seeds. One of the best ways of planting a seed is to ask questions. The goal of asking questions is to have the other person start to have enough curiosity so they will begin to do their own research. When they come back and ask you questions, you know the seed has been planted.
The evils of Collectivism and Islam have permeated our public-school system. The best and quickest way to have this corrected would be to have the public-school system collapse along with the Department of Education being eliminated. This can only be done when every single family who claims to be champions of freedom and independence steps forward and moves their children out of the union dominated public-school system and moves their children to charter schools, private schools, or home schools. Control of the schools must be returned to the local districts and teacher unions must be abolished.
These evils also control much of the media. It is very simple to detect which outlets are controlled by the “left”. Stop watching them. Stop supporting them. That does not mean you should stop seeking to learn the evil they are spewing but do it in places that does not financially reward them.
The entertainment industry provided a home for communists at the time Joe McCarthy was exposing it and it is every bit as bad now as it was then. Celebrities, actors, and other so-called entertainers are quoted by the media as if these people had any idea about what they were saying. They do not. They have learned to memorize lines and they use that skill to memorize bumper sticker slogans. Boycott movie theaters, foolish and meaningless celebrity magazines, foolish and meaning less programs like “The View,” or “CNN,” or “MSNBC.” What we learned with the football kneeling nonsense is that when we put meaningful priorities above entertainment, we can get results.
Whether or not we pass a nation of freedom and independence on to the next generation depends on whether or not we are willing to adjust our priorities and make the necessary choices. IN OTHER WORDS IT IS UP TO US. ARE WE WILLING TO MAKE THE SACRIFICES NECESSARY TO PASS FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE ON TO FUTURE AMERICAN GENERATIONS.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
