Unable to See Truth

Is the world going mad? Has it already gone to the dogs? Maybe we aren’t angry enough yet? Is the U.S. rotting from the inside out?

From the beginning of time, the evil nature of man has sought to control all people and all things. Some may argue that these power brokers were and are doing what they believed best for “their” people, but one could contend that merely the desire to control the masses, in and of itself, to be wrong and any so-called good intent is perceived only through a desire to reinterpret the Truth.

Control is the key word isn’t it? There have existed quotes from the ruling elites; such things as “control the food supply and you control the world” or “control the oil supply, etc.” How does that control come about? In order to control people, one has to find how to force the people, either knowingly or not, to submit to controlling features, even if in small junctures.

Perhaps foremost in people’s minds is the fallout from the events of 9/11. Fear struck people, as would be normal and along with that fear, our government took the opportunity to convince people they must give up some of their rights in order to be protected……..by the government. If only people understood they really need protection FROM their government. But, our society is now loaded up with people unable to think for themselves, nor be bothered with such things as who’s in charge and what the hell are they doing. Instead they want to be led. They like slavery, much because as time progresses fewer and fewer people have any idea what inalienable rights are.

Not much has changed since 9/11 and as we have seen since shootings in Arizona, Colorado and Connecticut, the control freaks our out in full force exploiting the fear factor in order to convince more Americans to give up even more of their rights; a move that in rational thinking runs contrary to the entire concept of inalienable rights. And isn’t that the plan?

Yesterday we had a terrorist bombing in Boston during the marathon and the smoke has yet to settle and already actions are underway to steal more of our rights. But how do you counter this nonsense when most of those with any amount of power, i.e. the media, bloggers, individuals, groups, etc., don’t understand what is going on. All too often those who may think they are doing good and countering an offensive against rights, are simply bringing in more fuel to add to the fire. Real change must begin with a better historical perspective. Let me cite an example.

A reader sent me a link to an article published on The Outdoor Wire by Jim Shepherd. The title is, “Terror Again, California Asks for Help.” (Note: You may have to scroll far down the page to find the article or do a site search to find it. The Outdoor Wire does a lousy job of creating links to stand alone pages for their articles.)

The author is saying that this is no time to be asking for laws that effectively or actually disarm the American people, when there still exist threats of terrorism, both foreign and domestic. I agree. But his reasoning on how this assault needs to be handled lacks historic perspective and as a result misdirects and misrepresents the attitudes of our people.

Here’s what the author said about Americans’ reactions over terror attacks.

Yesterday’s blasts in Boston didn’t just injure and kill innocent people, it reopened the issue of terror in the United States. As authorities raced around to reassure citizens they were doing everything possible, there was a question being asked around the country: do terrorists think the United States has forgotten about 9/11 and gotten weak-again?

I’m not going to speculate there, but the concerted efforts of some elected officials to disarm the citizenry would certainly embolden most of the “terrorist types” I’ve had the occasion to run across throughout 40 years in the news business. I recall the late Moammar Khadafi sitting around and telling reporters that he wasn’t concerned about the United States because the nation was “rotting from the inside out because of the corruption of the nation’s morals.” He was dead wrong on that a couple of decades later, but at the time, the nation was still shaking off the Iranian hostage crisis and the first serious attacks on US citizens abroad. He was sponsoring international terrorism, and he wasn’t overly concerned that the US would do anything about it.

It took 9/11 to get the United States angry. An angry American is an awe-inspiring though idea[?] in much of the rest of the world. Normally, the world really does consider us to generally be weak, too-comfortable with sustaining our lifestyle to realize we just might be rotting from the inside out.

The author dispels any notion that this country is “rotting from the inside out.” He also says that once Americans get angry they get back on track. One can choose to believe that and I suppose to some degree they do but they never got back on the right track. This is proven by our willingness to give up our rights in the name of safety.

I’m no Moammar Khadafi sympathizer but perhaps the dictator’s notion was more rooted in historic fact than that of this author. It is my opinion that what this author, and many others trying to get a grasp on some kind of sanity and understanding of what is happening around us, is attempting to describe a symptom of a bigger disease. That disease is, in fact, a loss of a moral compass to guide our people. This isn’t going to happen overnight. It’s a process and as the process muddles along, the people pay little attention. The result is they don’t see what has happened. In attempts to recall history, we are often laughed at that we don’t know our history and what they have learned is reinterpreted, edited history.

I’m not presenting new thoughts here. Nor am I trying to preach to people about their morals and chosen lifestyles. I don’t have to. All of these chapters and books have already been written. History repeatedly tells us that societies that lose their moral focus rot from the inside out.

Why is this not being seen? For the same reason it was seldom seen throughout all of history. We are all part of a slow moving social destruction and while on the ride, cannot see what is really happening and thus denial, such as the author here has displayed when he said in response to Khadafi’s comment, “He was dead wrong on that a couple of decades later.” That’s denial, the result of being immersed in the problem.

We can’t attempt to trump up anger thinking it is the catalyst to solve our problems. As a society in trouble, we refuse to see that others want to control us and in order to do that they must frighten us. A frightened mass of people, will pretty much do as they are told, because they have been taught, wrongly, to have blind trust in government. When in history has that EVER worked?

All the right and wrong things will be said as we mop up emotionally from Boston, while at the same time debating the need to disarm the people. But in the end, to only those keeping score, we will end up with fewer rights and less freedom that God intended us to have. So shall it be written, so shall it be done.
