You know what, I reckon he might?
The better question would be. When is President Trump going to tell America it was an inside job?
He won't I don't think, but, if the government tells it to itself and looks much more closely at the deep state shadow government and all the
nefarious goings on behind this entire episode of historic insanity and dark night of the soul, then that can bring about the desired change at least
as a starting point or as a sunrise of something novel - Reality.
Policy has to be informed from a new place of understanding, even if for some it might mean tears of sorrow, regret and repentance - oh what did we
I think it has everything to do with an idea that I picked up from a book called "The Road Less Travelled, A New Psychology of Love, Traditional
Values and Spiritual Growth" by M. Scott Peck, MD, and it's corollary from a follow up book called "Civility, A World Waiting to be Born" by the same
but to "get that" I'll start with a quote from a German born American psychologist by the name of Erich Fromm
Nationalism is our form of incest, is our idolatry, is our insanity. ”Patriotism” is its cult. It should hardly be necessary to say, that by
”patriotism” I mean that attitude which puts the own nation above humanity, above the principles of truth and justice; not the loving interest in
one’s own nation, which is the concern with the nation’s spiritual as much as with its material welfare –never with its power over other
nations. Just as love for one individual which excludes the love for others is not love, love for one’s country which is not part of one’s love
for humanity is not love, but idolatrous worship.
~ Erich Fromm, from "The Sane Society"

The idea is that of Discipline
, for which Peck describes 4 fundamental "tools of discipline", the use of which produces mental health and well
being, at any level, where the will, to use the tools of discipline, is love. They are:
1) Delay of Gratification - and the bracketing of what might seem to be easier or more expedient (the source of all evil plans)
2) Dedication to Truth - and reality, except at the cost of truth and reality itself.
2) Acceptance of Responsibility
3) Balancing - the work of continually striking and re-striking an appropriate balance in one's emotional reactions and responses or in short,
Mental well being, at all levels, is really a function of the will to use the tools of discipline, which is love where love may be defined as:
The will, to give of one's self for the sake of another's spiritual growth and well being (Peck).
In his follow up book "Civility, A World Waiting to be Born", the forward for which was written by Al Gore, this theme is then taken to it's logical
conclusion when framed within the context of Civility, which he defined as:
"Consciously motivated organizational behavior that is ethical in submission to a higher power", or an imagined perfect observer (ie: not the "devil"
or aliens or any such thing).
The "problem" that arises takes place in an area that might be thought of as a paradox of leadership and authority in the gap of the divided middle
between what is and what ought to be where there is always a type of controversy surrounding the issue of authority and from what center or source it
derives it's authority and thus, power. It's the place where leaders "cave in" to either something that falls woefully short of the standard, or, that
intentionally aligns itself with the wrong master perhaps even under the faulty premise that "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em", and then right there,
there's the fall into corruption and all manner of devilish nonsense and skullduggery who's price is an unnecessary victimization whereby "neurosis
and mental illness is always the substitute for legitimate suffering" (Carl Jung), and that's where real and authentic discipline is discarded in
favor of the "ease" and expediency of evil or of a permissive framework for evil, perhaps even one that revels in it.
But it makes victims of us all, including the leaders who are corrupted by it and who fall victim to its allure, or because of simple laziness.
A prime example of this is 9/11 as a means to chart a diagonal path across the geopolitical chessboard while tripping over itself in pursuit of the
throne of global power and influence via global governance, which as we have seen with some of these institutions, like the UN and EU, are filled with
this type of laziness and even the sycophantic kowtowing to evil overlords and masters, whoever they may be, whether hooked-nosed Internatonal Bankers
or grey aliens or the devil.
My hope is that this rising tide of awareness and understanding of the true narrative of modern history, will come to appropriate the tools of
discipline in service to an authentic Civility, where the height of Virtue is power, restrained, and the true gentleman one who walks lightly but
carries a big stick and who never hurts another person's feelings, unintentionally.
Servant leadership based on individual Civil Liberty is hard work, but because whatever suffering is experienced to realize and uphold the highest
standards of Civility, is a necessary one, the will, as the will of love, is available, and forms the real taco shell that's capable of holding the
weight of the guacamole (to quote Obama allegedly quoting Ellen). It's not a vessel of another's suffering as a form of empowerment, but the
willingness to accept part of the weight of the cross as a necessary suffering for the sake and cause of love, which requires courage, strength and
wisdom to uphold as a perfect model of authentic Civilized leadership.
It's like a gate or a doorway of love through which we can all pass through into greener pastures one by one when we recognize the person of God
himself and His love functioning as that door and invitation, as well as the table, which isn't a platform of unnecessary suffering, but a table set
for us to find our place, even if we might approach it hobbling and crippled or in a state of abject repentance and regret.
The problem with our current leadership and the philosophy that informs them is that they don't know what they're doing or why, and to the degree that
they engage in or tacitly approve "the dark arts" in the sight of God, they've failed, but if we want evidence, all we need really do is look to their
fruits and in that regard, all the data is in and spread out all over the field.
The sad thing about it all is that real and authentic leadership is the only sane and rational position to take in the face of all obstacles because
only via the use of the tools of discipline can real problems be solved and not simply exacerbated, while otherwise good men become monsters.
