UPDATE 6/18/21: No easy task seeking out and speaking truth in the today’s cultural atmosphere poisoned almost beyond tolerance by criminal, malignant ideas masquerading as “politics.” Such toxicity unchecked and unopposed spells the death of what used to be called common sense, commonly shared truth that should be guiding a society of rational people. We are choking on very bad, evil ideas. Naturally, any dissent to these wicked concepts is projected as censorship by the selfsame liars whose only mission is to stifle the truth. Whither common sense. Little mystery it’s missing in our elected idiots but what of The Common Man who put them in power?
We cannot survive as a society or as individuals on a cultural diet of lies. Either the truth becomes the norm routinely putting lies to flight, or we perish as from an unchecked cancer that spreads and kills.
ORIGINAL POST 1/17/21: Amazing how destructive divisions between good people cease to matter when telling the truth is their shared highest value. In that is our salvation and greatest hope…and the most powerful weapon against those who would enslave and destroy us.
UPDATE 1/19/21: Numerous court cases regarding election fraud remain to be tried. If we are fortunate enough to have the courts, at all levels lowest to highest, do what they did not do prior to inauguration, will the Biden administration be legitimate? And if not, what then?
ORIGINAL POST 1/18/21: Funny how a little word like “truth” keeps coming up as we grasp at whatever straws our conservative minds can come up with in response to the tidal wave of lies. We live in a state of foreboding, our worst fears realized as we face the likelihood of a totalitarian, Orwellian reality like none we Americans have known. Free speech is under severe attack and even pronounced dead in too many corners. Many of our longtime friends, neighbors, relatives are gone from our lives thanks to the Obama legacy of Identity Politics, the deadly virus of permanent civil war and strife injected into our national bloodstream. The germ of that virus is The Lie, small and large, that with repetition has taken on cancerous life in our system; and those of us intent on survival do not have the option of denial. In civil disputes our recourse has always been our justice system, now apparently moribund thanks to craven complicity and capitulation at the highest levels. Is there an honestly run courtroom left in this land where we can state our case? Is our only choice mass acceptance of tyranny? Leftism is now the mainstream opiate of the perpetually disgruntled masses.
What’s now is that we are about to suffer through the equal-opposite reaction to Trump’s remarkable presence on the scene, bashing his way gloriously through the red tape, inertia and just plain nasty intentions of traditional politics to real results. His effectiveness has exposed the enemies of real progress (the Left and the bitterly pointless NeoCon RINOs). Their vengeance will not be kind or amenable to reason and logic. Lesson #1 is that reason and logic have little or no use against those who would rule and destroy us.
Positive results and solutions are totally irrelevant to those religiously devoted to the nihilism of the Marxist vacuum. Everything true, logical, healthy, freedom-loving runs contrary to who they are and what they plan for the rest of us.
The truth is that, denied our judicial system, truth as lived by millions of individuals has never mattered so much. Given the survival of individual free will and basic material resources, each of us still has the power to state our case and prove it over the long run. In the short run, we are about to live through a new heyday for the Master Planners. Government’s heretofore limited presence in our lives is very likely to go into overwhelm in the Communist Chinese mode. No longer will there be any pretense of following the fairy tale of the benign-sounding “democratic socialism” of Scandinavia but, instead, the quietly brutal Red Chinese model. The totalitarian dry run known as mass lockdown is, in origin and response, start to finish, Made In China; and our incoming nouveau-riche First Family is not known as the Beijing Bidens for nothing.
This is not cheery news, particularly with the stepped-up crackdown of Big Tech/DC censorship on Trump and his supporters. On the other hand, human freedom and ingenuity will not rest, springing up like the grass that won’t stop growing through cracks in the pavement or London’s fire flowers. New independent, rogue technology evading the Big Tech monsters is already sprouting up. And as of this week, Facebook and Twitter (according to one source) have shown a massive ($51 billion!) loss in stock value. Even the soulless multibillionaires running these tech leviathans have reason to be concerned. When all is said and done, they are still reliant on the passive cooperation of those “dumb f-ks” (Zuckerberg’s term) stupid enough to consume their products.
