What Had Happened & Was Said Many Thousands Of Years Ago, Are Nothing More Than A Blueprint Of What Will Happen Today.
Talmudist . . . Hillel The Elder, Born Several Generations Before the Birth of Christ, was Renowned for a Countless Number of Observations & Interpretations Concerning the Torah (Five Books Of Moses), and What the Values of Humanity Should Live-By – Famously Wrote Amongst Many Things . . .
If I Am Not For Myself? Who Will Be For Me? And If I Am Only For Myself? Who Am I? And If Not Now? . . . When?
The Words of Hillel are as True Today as they were True for all of Humanity More than 2000-Years Ago . . . The Only Question Now – Are We Listening?
More Than Ever . . . Today Is The Time – To Reflect Upon Yesterday & Tomorrow.
We Cannot Be Fooled . . . War Has Been Declared Against Our Freedoms. And What we Do in the Next Short While will Depend Upon Who we Are & What we Will Become.
Amongst The Greatest Sins Against Humanity . . . Are Hubris, Greed, Narcissism, Dishonesty, Indifference to the Legitimate Needs & Rights of Others, Ignorance, and an Aspiration to Dictate & Control the Lives of Others.
Nothing Ever Changes . . . Just The Names, Times & Places . . . So To Know Yesterday Is To Know Tomorrow.
We can Add a Plethora of Other Indecencies to this List of Sins, which Perhaps from Time-To-Time we are All Guilty of . . . But the Two Most Egregious Sins Most of us Have Been Culpable of . . . Have Been Ignorance & Indifference.
A Friend Of Mine Once Said To Me About Supporters Of Tyranny . . . “Their Rights End Where Mine Begins”.
This Friend Of Mine Is A Retired University Professor . . . He is Christian, who was Born in Nazi Germany Before WWII. He like all German Children Had to Participate in the Nazi Youth Movement . . . He Knew From What He Spoke.
And During The War. . . My Friend’s Father, who I Liked, was a Real Gentleman, who Fought in the German Army, whether he Liked the Nazis or Not, who had Little to No Choice But to Serve.
In His Words To Me . . . He Served Germany – Not Hitler, Nor The Nazis, Nor Their Ideology.
It was Written & Chronicled in the Brilliant Book of Professor Daniel Jonah Goldhagen . . . ”Hitler’s Willing Executioners”, How the Indifference of the German People Led to the Rubicon of No Return, Due to the Ignorance of the Masses to the True Intentions of a Small Percentage of Zealots.
Wrap-Up All The Aforementioned Sins & Then Some . . . And We Can All Understand What Drove The Success Of The Nazis.
The Same Can be Said About Communism and all Forms of Totalitarian Rule, Regardless of the Initial Guise Portrayed, Because – Once We Cross The Rubicon . . . There Is No Going Back.
I Believe That America Is Far Closer To Crossing The Rubicon Than Most People Want To Believe.
If You Chose Not To Stand For Your Own Freedoms? Who Will Stand For You?
If You Stand Only For Yourself? What Does That Make You?
And If This Is Not The Time To Take A Stand & Stand Together? Then When Will Be The Right Time?
The Clock Is Ticking With Every Passing Day – And we’re all Getting Closer to the Edge. But Failure Isn’t Written in History, Nor is Defeat an Inevitability . . .There Is Positive News.
America Is Not Europe . . . America is Without any Doubt in my Mind, the Greatest Example of Governance Known to Humanity, Greater than the Era of the Greeks, the Romans, the Asian Dynasties and all Other Comers . . .
Never Before To My Knowledge Has There Ever Been A Nation Created By The People Of The People & For The People.
And Never Before . . . Has there Been a Nation that Absorbed by Law & Social Values – All the Differences of the People Within a Society, to Become a Melting Pot of Differing Thoughts, Philosophies, Religions, Languages, Genders & Abilities, which Virtually Offers Unlimited Opportunities . . . Than Does The United States Of America.
I Understand More Clearly Now . . . What Thomas Jefferson Meant in his Tree of Liberty Letter from Paris . . . When Jefferson Wrote . . . “The Tree Of Liberty Must Be Refreshed From Time To Time With The Blood Of Patriots & Tyrants . . .”
I Am Certain That I Know How Far The Patriots Will Go To Protect America’s Freedoms.
I am also Quite Certain that I Know how Far the Tyrants Will NOT Go to Usurp the Freedoms of America in their Aspirational Quest to Destroy what Must be Preserved.
There Might Come the Day when the Blood of Patriots & Tyrants will Stain the Soil of America . . . But There Will Not Be The Day When America Ceases to Become America.
Because The “WOKE” Has Awakened The Sleeping Giant.
