Adults tend to be dogmatic in their thinking and actions which will result in consequences such as we are experiencing today. Our government and politicians talk down to us by stating that we do not understand the complexity of the issues so our opinions have no value.
Children have a way of looking at life in a simplistic way. They see the world as a two-dimensional construct: right or wrong, black or white, good or bad. The following video is only sixty seconds but it puts our problem (not problems) into the light of day.
If you watch this video and are not motivated to save our children from the greed and power that represents our government, then the following words from Samuel Adams apply to you:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”
These words from Jesus in Matthew 18:3 give us our course of action:
And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
The solution is simple when we look at the problem through the eyes of a child.
