Here beginneth the lesson:
“It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right.
The only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any time what I think right.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
Whether you agree with the statement above is immaterial. I believe it, and in your interactions with me, you will have to accept that it controls my actions.
Whether you believe our current president is inherently evil, or continue to excuse his behaviors as the will of others is immaterial. He exists and his actions directly and negatively affect our lives and our fortunes.
You must come to terms with what is right, and what constitutes right action. T.L.Davis has just posted a compelling argument on right action … an excerpt:
“But, the evils have piled up. The liberty has been lost. The corrective action is almost unthinkable. It is also terrifying. It requires the dismantling of ourselves as “good citizens”. It requires the necessary evil of becoming criminals. That’s a hard evolution.
“…it is the very fact that the courts have been so corrupted, the police so militarized and hostile, the government so distant from the ideals of liberty and justice that none yet exists. We have allowed ourselves to be driven from the status of citizens of a free republic and accepted the yoke of subjects. Subjects.
“I suggest to you that there is no Constitution at all and that they, the government employees, elected or not, have no authority to project their power upon us. They are simple brutes with guns and armies who have stolen the past, present and future. We are ruled by nothing other than our conscience and I suggest the conscience which seeks to provide liberty and the power of the Constitution to our fellow citizens is clear in whatever endeavor that might lead one.
“It is not ours to restore the power of the Constitution, it is ours to show them the wrath of America without the protections the Constitution offers them. Let them restore it to find refuge from us.”
~ T.L.Davis – The Truth of US
Here endeth the lesson.
