Everyday we see the effects of what happens when people refuse to take accountability & to Think for themselves. The fear-inducing rhetoric, hatemongering, & blatant presentation of falsehoods used by the politicians & corporate elitists of today have become the modus operandi rather than just the subliminal bully tactics of the past. When a person can tap into the biases, fears, & insecurities of others while exciting their passions with the zeal of an united front & giving them scapegoats to place the blame on for all of their problems,… that person gains control over the people.
This is not the Republic envisioned by those who founded the United States of America, yet this is what We have become. This is supposed to be a democracy for The People, by The People, established on the principles of Freedom, Acceptance, Unity, Brotherhood, Equality, & Human Rights. The People are ALL of the people, not just a select few or a specific demographic with certain views. This Great Experiment in North America was designed to be a Beacon of Hope to the rest of the world as a shining example of what can be accomplished when we nourish & encourage the best in each other, extracting each one’s Potential for Greatness in accord with the Greater Good.
Right now, we Americans are allowing divisions & insecurities to influence our thinking to such a degree that we’re essentially relinquishing our Power, Freedom, & our Rights. We’re allowing those who should be serving our best interests (the politicians aka public servants) to abuse our Trust while pushing their own agendas & making us feel like we need to appease them. Our rights are steadily eroding down to the status of privileges. When are we going to wake up? When it’s too late & another Third Reich has risen up over here instead & asserted control over this Great Nation? When our most dangerous enemies are domestic, & foreign powers are trying to figure out how to deal with the “American situation?”
What kind of world do you want to live in? What world do you really want your children, grandchildren, & great-grandchildren to grow up in? Are you okay with tension & hate being the prevalent environment in which we all operate, as long as the hate’s now directed @ you & makes you feel superior to others? Is that really what we signed up for?? That’s not a world I want to live in. It’s not the life I envision for the future generations.
We have to do better & be better for them. Every single one of us with the ability to affect change has a responsibility to do our part to make our Communities, cities, states, our Country more peaceful, progressive, prosperous, & unified than it was when we entered this world. If not, then what are we doing; what is our Purpose? We The People have the final say in what this Nation’s legacy will be. We can determine if it implodes from wicked machinations inciting separateness, elitism, disregard, callousness, & selfishness; or if these United States of America will shine bright with the eternal flame of Unity, Brotherhood, Charity, Love, Accountability, & Independent Interdependence! This is what each one of us must decide. What will we stand on? How will we live our lives?
