Practical experience trumps theory, no matter how visionary

“I’ve realized that the best teacher isn’t theory but practice. Yes, the vision can sound good on paper or in a speech. Yes, it can inspire. But a good theory does not automatically lead to a good policy. I saw then how dangerous it can be for politicians, Democrats or Republicans, to wage political arguments from on high, with little knowledge of the ultimate consequences of their actions and decisions–and I hold fast to the memory.

Liberals believe that government could solve all problems

“It took the White House and Congress just a few months to establish monumental programs like Model Cities, Head Start, Medicare, and Medicaid, and the Job Corps, and to pass the Elementary and Secondary Education Act that gave federal money to public schools for the first time. Democrats and liberals had a bedrock belief in the idea that the government could correct even the most otherwise intractable problems. They passed laws and established initiatives to ban literary tests at the polls, wipe out rural poverty, and force integration. The gospel was that government could solve all.”

Hate crime in Orlando

In the actions that occurred in the early hours of 6/12/2016 we saw what can happen when hateful ideology meets reality. 50 people lost their lives because one young man followed the teachings of hateful ideology. A young man that pledged his allegiance to ISIS (http://www.wcsh6.com/news/nation/orlando-nightclub-shooter-called-911-to-pledge-allegiance-to-isis-sources/240811616) prior to entering Pulse, a Gay Nightclub, and struck terror in the lives of others due to their orientation. Even though we may not be able to be in Orlando, as a nation we must show our support for the families of those affected by this tragic event. This also means support for the family of Omar S. Mateen.

In order to solve the problem of violence due to firearms, We must use Rational and Commonsense approaches instead of Emotional Sensationalism. This is not a time to allow people to take away the rights of others, due to the actions of a person that had hatred toward LGBT people.

The tragedy that occurred in Orlando, Florida is nothing more than adherence to an ideology of terror and hate. This is not a criticism of Islam or Political Ideologies in particular, rather it is a criticism of those that approve of its followers, through the use of violence, of denying others their rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

 

America: A short review

It was a new land for some, for others it was home for generations. Through years of invasion it became a land of prosperity. For others it became a trail of tears and subjugation. Time rolled on and eventually a new nation was born. It was to be a nation of Utopian Ideals. “A great city on the hill”, so to speak. It became that great city and more. It also became the envy of the world. During the 1800’s, Empires tried to regain what had been lost. These attempts failed. Also during the 1800’s, it became an Empire itself. Built further on the greed and hatred that had fueled its beginning. (This is not a criticism of Capitalism, rather of Socio-Capitalism.)

Into the 1960’s, the country seemed to be tearing itself apart. Not in a Civil War akin to the one that visited its evils 100 years prior, rather in a Societal War. It was at this time that people started to undermine the “Grand Experiment”. I refer to this time as the beginning of Socio-Capitalism in the forefront. When the ideas of Socialism and Communism crept their ways into the education of the future. For those that will criticize, yes I have read Karl Marx. The only way his philosophy works is if everyone goes to an Agricultural system. When Socialism and Communism are mixed in with modern governments, it will always lead to a dictatorship. History has shown us this plain and simple. Hitler with National Socialism, Mao with China’s Communism (which currently is becoming more Capitalist), Stalin with Soviet Russia, etc.

This brings us to the 2000’s, after September 11, with the constant threat of terrorism. Terrorism. Oxford Dictionary defines it as,The unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” That brings a new realization to the term. We are living under Terrorism. If one does not believe it, try exercising free-speech in an area that is not designated a “Free-Speech Zone”. Absolutely laughable.

We are in a period of time when it is criminal to think outside of the box that is called Mainstream Media. We are living that road that led to “1984”. My hope for the people is that they are not deceived again by a slick tongue and winking eye. It has been nearly 8 years under this administration. An administration which circumvented Congress with a pen and a phone, implemented NDAA §§ 1021-1022, continued PRISM and authorized Fast & Furious.

NDAA §§ 1021-1022 – affirm provisions authorizing the indefinite military detention of civilians, including U.S. citizens, without habeas corpus or due process. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Defense_Authorization_Act_for_Fiscal_Year_2012

PRISM-surveilance program under which the United States National Security Agency (NSA) collects internet communications from at least nine major US internet companies.Since 2001 the United States government has increased its scope for such surveillance, and so this program was launched in 2007. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRISM_%28surveillance_program%29

Fast & Furious- In the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, the Obama administration let guns “walk”–or be trafficked without surveillance or any plan to regain control of them–into the hands of Mexican drug cartel criminals.                      http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/04/08/barack-obama-backs-operation-fast-furious-drops-executive-privilege-claim-documents/#disqus_thread

Division Lines

The United States of America is going  through difficult tests. We are currently at a split in the road. This country was built on Unification, yes granted their have been injustices. However, if there is any hope of fixing the problems at hand we must become unified.

A well known tool of Psyops is controlling the emotions of a person. We have seen this used many times recently to incite riots. Once the riot starts, the Media then spins the story.

“For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”
John Fitzgerald Kennedy

This is bigger than any one State or Country, it affects the whole world. I am not suggesting revolution of any kind. I am suggesting everyone question the various Governments that are in place. The Government exists because the People agreed to it. Not the other way around, which has been happening for a long time. Before people vote or promote a candidate, they should question the motives of said candidate.

It has been a long Eight Years with this administration in the USA.

During that time:

  • People have been arrested under false charges
  • People have been silenced when dissenting
  • Peaceful organizations have been infiltrated by instigators
  • Whistle blowers have been ridiculed when revealing the truth
  • Deals have been made in secret
  • Organizations have been targeted by the IRS
  • The people have been spied upon by their own Government, in the lie of security
