Thanks for your kind words. Brilliant? I dunno. I’m just trying to get people to understand the nature of those who would rule us, ultimately murder and enslave us, and the pedigree of their ideas.
The history of the twentieth century has been one of mass murder, atrocity, enslavement and impoverishment on a scale that beggars the imagination. So I pose the questions:
How can you make sense of all this killing and misery?
How can you begin to comprehend the mindset that celebrates and wallows in atrocity?
How can you wrap your mind around the murderous cruelty of Islam and totalitarian collectivism and the fascination that it has for so many?
How can you prevent that from happening here?
Adn what are you willing to do to prevent it?
Tough questions. Hard answers.
I believe that your article is brilliant in its clarity and directness. You explained a lot, very succinctly.
My last reply explains my trouble (that I am finally overcoming) in answering these questions.
To your last 2 questions:
- for me, I am in the process of educating myself so that I can be of some use in educating others around me. I have a lot of learning to do (and not a lot of time) so I am working double-time on that.
- I am in the process of steeling my resolve and completely internalizing the facts that I am finally coming to grips with. In short, I am finally beginning to understand the meaning (including its ultimate beautiful truth and absolute relevance to the present) of:
"It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
