The Blind Spot
Americans are privileged and fortunate but they have also developed a "blind spot”. The American people just don't understand evil anymore." Their minds have been seared. This means people cannot recognize the way evil operates. Despite the way judicial and political tyranny, sexual mayhem, political terrorism, and illicit drug use make people a victim of it or how it ruins ruin the lives of millions of people. That is a serious "blind spot." Aristotle, once, warned that big lies are more believable than little ones, since people their selves might tell the little ones, but they cannot imagine telling whoppers. Then we are reawakened to the BIG liars in our midst, the liars who cause mass trauma by the lies and their deeds. These are people who we elected to office because we wanted a better way and a more better and safer world to live in. We believe their lies and their so called transparency. Our country is now like a city with its walls broken down, instead of that shiny light on a hill. We must repair those walls.
Throughout the world evil exist. In North Korea, one man gets "torture and life in prison for possessing a radio." In China, another communist "worker's paradise," bureaucrats enforce sterilization, abortion and infanticide, jailing roughly "500,000 people" without charge or trial, in Mexico, were things are really corrupt, you can get shot for just being in the way, and so on. Most governments from the "Far East to Africa to South America are corrupt, predatory and power hungry."
Here in the USA, government abuse grows daily. We are fast becoming a nation without God. Homosexuals parade our streets, unborn babies by the thousands are killed every day. Now in this country almost everything that is wrong is now right and everything that was once right is now wrong. We have removed God from our court rooms and schools. The closer we get to a vision of man without God, the closer we find ourselves without "strong moral principles." Under those circumstances, humans are "free to lie, manipulate and steal in a multitude of obvious and shrewd ways." The government officials have no restraint as to what they want to do, bad or deceitful. William Penn once said this:: "If man is not governed by God, he will be ruled by tyrants." After years living in this country, for nearly 65 years, I know this to be well said and true. As time goes by more and more of our freedoms are being taking away in this country. The land of the free and the home of the brave is becoming not free anymore! When a elected government does not listen to the majority of the people they become tyrants. They will become your oppressors, your tormentor. You will be ruled by dictators. This is what is taking place right now in our country. We have leaders that care nothing about God, the people, or the welfare of this great nation. They have their agenda and that is what their aim is.
I was married to a Indian women that told me a story the American Indians use to tell their children as they grew up. The Indian chief tells the story of a fight between two wolves. One wolf represents "evil, sin, fear, anger, pride, envy, lust, greed, arrogance, self pity, resentment, lies and cruelty."The other wolf "stands for love, honesty, kindness, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, friendship, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."This fight goes on inside everyone, including "you" he said. The grandson thought about what the chief told him and then asked, "Which wolf will win?"The wise old chief looked up and answered, "The one you feed." This my friend is how evil works. Which wolf are you feeding? Conservative View Point
