There is so much insanity and dis-information being swirled around us today. If you have not had the chance to see the film Loose Change, check it out on Youtube.com.
Somewhere along the line we just forgot what it was like to be a new country, being dominated by a "Mother country" that treated us as it saw fit.
Somewhere the idea of Liberty that the founding fathers had, which quite honestly, perhaps they meant only to have for themselves. That is wealthy landowners. But you see an idea is not anyone's personal possesion. Yes patents are granted for inventions, actual material workings out of ideas. And writings have copyrights and music too. And this is a good thing, although 75 years after an author's death does seem to be stretching it. Let the grand-kids write their own works for goodness sake!
Anyhow, my other blog The Deeper Life and this are of course intertwined, but this one focuses on what seems to me to be the eroding of our civil liberties and what people are saying and most importantly, doing about it.
Is this nation going to quake and quiver over every threat?
There are those, I belive who are attempting to frighten the American people into a state of subservient submission, well that is not where the people I come from were willing to put up with when they came as puritans almost 400 years ago. And it's not something any people should have to endure.
And for America to become a superpower that openly says we will not allow anyone to challenge our supremacy is a total perversion of what we are told America stands for.
Jesus the Man, not the religious icon, but a man who was living in Isreal under Roman occupation, understood life.
And he said "You will know them by their fruits" Meaning what a person says is not the best indicator of who they are, it's what they do.
And if you look at the fruits of America, what we've actually done then you can see there are pluses and minues big one's on both sides.
We are in a time where we can no longer be complacent, or we may find ourselves robbed of our liberty and made slaves in a nightmare world of totalitarianism and never-ending war.
