Wes posted an image concerning monsters in a post.
Based on the comments, let me suggest that we first have to identify the monsters (enemy). Let’s suppose that our enemy is the federal government, then who else considers the government of the US to be their enemy? The list is quite long:
- Islam considers the US (and its people) to be the Great Satan.
- Russian speaking people in the Dunbos were attacked by Ukraine such that after years of bombing, Russia finally intervened in their behalf. The proxy war in Ukraine is still a war between Russia and the West.
- China wants Taiwan and has had sanctions and tariffs imposed on them by the US. Biden calls President Xi a dictator during his visit to San Francisco.
Some say Israel is the enemy but I want you to consider the Sanskrit adage:
The enemy of my enemy is my friend
I do not believe it. The founding fathers had wise policies concerning interaction with other countries. Thomas Jefferson summed it up perfectly:
Power corrupts independently of the level of power. We see that in action in our local, state and federal government diktats.
I do not subscribe to the policy of making alliances with other groups or countries based on a common enemy. Should we consider making alliances based on who is our friend? Should we consider making no alliances and being friend (neutral) to all? Those questions should be answered first and then we must decide who the enemy is to our people.
The answer for me as to whom the enemy is obvious: the federal government. No entity has a more direct influence over our lives in every manner and the result is slavery, despair and death. Imagine if the federal government was put back in its box as defined by the Constitution. Imagine if we stopped US hegemony around the world and rebuilt America. Imagine if the people in the United States were not divided by the federal government, big business and the media.
I hope that you consider the above questions but the bottom line is that our enemy has been defined by the federal government and they are mobilizing against the good people who believed in the American Dream. Do you consider the following groups to be friends or enemies:
- Black Lives Matter
- Any three letter federal agency
- Any form of media
- Gender Identify syncophants
- Vaccine supporters
- Ukraine supporters
- Israel supporters
- Climate change supporters
Some of the above may not be the enemy. Can determine who is the “enemy” if we stop being diverted by all of the factions dividing us?
What can I do? I use can use critical thinking skills to determine a course of action with a firm reliance on Divine Providence. I must determine who is trustworthy and build relationships to build a community. I must not let myself become distracted by those events, news or issues that I have no control over. I must remember the purpose of government: protect our borders and secure our property. Everything else is a power grab for someone else’s motives.
Without consequences, the “law” becomes a tool to control us. We see how voter fraud without consequences has led our nation to the brink of WWIII with nuclear options on the table. I do not see how much worse it can become as a dystopian future appear to be certain.
It is probable that many of our “enemies” outside the country are manufactured by our government, our government’s actions, religious ideology and misunderstandings. I believe taking back our nation and becoming honorable, moral and righteous will make most of those enemies disappear. One fact is unassailable: evil controls the US federal government and that makes them my enemy. It is an enemy that I cannot defeat by myself but I can withhold my consent. If enough of us withhold our consent, it is the first step. I have a “feeling” that the government is now realizing the importance of the people who built this country, have faith in God and who are becoming very “aware”.
