Our uneasy ease
It is quite remarkable that
in this generation, which has access to technology that greatly enhances the
collection, distribution and retrieval of information, increasing numbers of
Americans are illiterate concerning events that precipitated the creation of our
Basic knowledge regarding the historical context and foundations of America are
lacking for the most part, to our detriment, in contemporary society. How can a
free people remain free when they are ignorant of that which they were
liberated? And what about the cost that liberty exacted? This aspect of our
heritage, the price of freedom and the cost of tyranny, must be retained transgenerationally
to maintain our status as a free people. When the roots are severed the branches
will slowly, yet inevitably die.
The main elements of that struggle will never change. Specifically, the
congenital clash between those who seek personal freedom and those plotting tyranny.
Only the venues and the particulars of it's expression change. The Trojan horse
of history is today's creeping socialist utopia. Fascists, as we should know,
take control of the means of production. Doesn't this remind us of the aims of
the EPA and Al Gore? Medieval feudalism isn't dead. It is reincarnated in broad
generalized grants of unaccountable authority given, without our voice, to
governmental agencies. Today's progressive and confiscator taxation calls for a
correlative emancipation proclamation. Through political superficiality this
country is unwittingly voting itself into bondage.
Have you ever considered the need for both parents to work to make ends meet?
The American taxpayers union informs us that the average taxpayer begins, as far
as their tax obligation is concerned, to work (keeping gross pay) for themselves
on May 6th. Preceding this date ALL monies earned flow to the outstretched hand
of the government. This situation grows worse every year. As the state is made
stronger the individual is correspondingly weakened.
Contemporary America is dropping
the cultural baton. Why must this happen?
