Like many things, I’ve tried to prepare, to warn, to motivate people toward positive things they can do to alleviate the suffering of this nation. Not all suffer, not all prosper, but the decay, the foundational rot that’s taken place can offer no stability for the future of the nation for either. One might hate what it has become and others might think that it’s moving in the right direction, but there is no illusion that it operates from a solid base of understanding; a common core of beliefs. It operates now on fraud, lies, misrepresentations, misinformation and the driving dogma of the left in which sections of the population are allowed to violate the laws, morality and decency, while others are restricted from participating in society at all. To illustrate this, a conservative might write a ground-breaking, explosive book that identifies major issues and their solutions, but through traditional means of communication, this can’t be brought into the light, it must be sequestered for fear that it will move public opinion in an unapproved direction. A leftist can write any dogmatic, nearly nonsensical piece of propaganda and be hailed as the next great writer of the age. This is how it is, this is the division of the nation, where some ideas are embargoed while others are forced, even driven into the skulls of those unprepared or incapable of defending against it, especially children.
We create community is the solution. Broadly there is F2F community locally and all other community which is more abstract extending outwards via internet around the planet in time and space. The ideal is the empowerment of the local. Nullification by democratic vote of any law considered repugnant to the state or if honest, down to the Municipal level saying to State government STOP. Community is political. Not recreational.
Elegant. Beautifully written. Thank you.
There are two options for resolving it. We either convince a few more people to join us in stopping the slide to fascism, or we apply enough force to stop it. The third option is surrender, which doesn't resolve the problem, only accepts it.
Political action may produce the needed reversals. The November election seems likely to establish a strong conquest of the Congress, leaving the executive branch and its entrenched bureaucracy, with their corporate media megaphone, to cover the retreat of the fascists. They won't be defeated, just diminished. It's crucial that every patriot become active participants in their government, supporting rational representatives, and becoming outspoken advocates for liberty. We must all become constantly vigilant to all mechanisms of control to ensure we never endure the damage we have seen in the last few years. Protest is pointless. Patience is poison. Withdrawal is surrender.
Reagan advocated a slogan of peace through strength. He developed and maintained the strength necessary to stop soviet aggression. We must be similarly focused on developing the strength, both personal and community, to control the persistent attacks by the diverse elements of the same forces that controlled the soviets and continue to seek domination. Everyone who hopes to remain free must be armed and proficient. We need to learn to maintain our health, as the medical bureaucracies we've become so dependent of have failed us. We must prepare to survive without the conveniences that have spoiled us into dependence and subservience. When mothers can't feed their babies because the market has empty shelves of powdered concoctions they can't understand, you know we're on the verge of serfdom. We can't do it alone. We must convince others. Every human on earth is either a supporter of liberty or is our enemy.
We must develop the means and the will to oppose the forces of fascism, or our pampered existence will quickly end, much sooner than anyone expects.
A great word arrangement and context, TL!
I am amazed that I am living the end days of my life, as I'm closer to the end than to the beginning, in a parallel scenario to people living during the Fall of Rome, 476 CE (Georgian Calendar, same as AD).
I've often tried to imagine what people in that era felt like... but now I know because I'm living it. Normalcy rapidly disappeared on my watch.
Like a friend of mine said... an intelligent, conservative man (and he's a lot darker than me), "I was planning on being in the Bahamas on the beach with my wife, smoking a cigar, drinking a rum and coke and watching the sun set. No longer. They've (Globalists and leftists) have taken that from me." He's over being pissed off... and now full bore into preparing for what is to come.
Like the saying goes… “It’s not over until the fat lady sings!”
There will be one hell of a fight before they accomplish what they intend. Too many of us. But they will use the ultimate weapon… starvation.
Prepare… store water and buy lots of rice and beans.

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, albeit a very poor one I must admit. I am aware of Biblical prophesy enough to know that these things we are experiencing must come, culminating in the defeat of the evil that has ruled this world. A wise man that I listened to said that there is no political solution to a spiritual problem. We have a deep spiritual problem and no election can fix it. No politician can fix it. There will be no "White Knight" riding to rescue this once great republic. T.L. used the example of how a great book authored by a conservative wouldn't see the light of day for fear of the evil ones that such exposure to the public would create problems. Even if a book of that nature could be widely distributed, I wonder how many would read it. We are no longer a literate society. Public education, ie, indoctrination. over half a century demolished that skill. Critical thinking? Forgitaboutit! People like us who seek out information and knowledge in alternative sites are a true minority. We are the fortunate ones who, with the help of some deep thinkers like T.L. and others that stimulate our own cognitive abilities to put the pieces together, plainly see the troubles that are already here and growing daily and can prepare. It is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because we have been taking steps to mitigate the risks to ourselves and our families. A curse because we understand that what was is no more and we must prepare and adapt to a new reality not of our choosing or we will not survive. Whether they know it or not, the other side has already lost. But in their growing desperation they will become even more dangerous. Thanks, T.L.
