On a more sombre note.
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Lately, as in, over the last 7 years. I have seen a trend.
This trend is not of economic value, nor is it of religious value, yet it directly violates the freedoms of which a free nation holds to.
I speak of none other than fascism.
It has been a long time since fascism has taken root in the minds of a nation. Fascism, like a slowly heated kettle, takes time to be noticed. Small
and seemingly innocent steps toward the security of the people, often end up to amount to the slave like ownership of the people by a select few; the
We spent a great number of resources and lives to combat fascism many decades ago. Who would have conceived it would be right here, in the free
nations, that fascism would seek to infect a host?
When the people of a nation live in fear of being confused with the enemy of their government, those people are silenced from having a valid opinion.
Neighbors will allow neighbors, family will allow family, and friends will allow friends, to be taken by their government in the dead of night,
without hesitation, nor question as to why. The government need only declare them traitors or terrorists to justify their actions.
The next time you hear of someone being declared a traitor or a terrorist, ask those who declare them so, Why?
You will be surprised to find they haven't a single answer.
The United States are comprised of good people, like you and I. They do not deserve this fascist treatment any more than we do.
So why then, is it that we the people who reside out of the United States stand by and watch as their rights and freedoms are revoked? Do we seriously
believe this infection cannot plant roots where we live?
We have all heard the drone like repetition of the governments wishes through the people of the United States. Suggestions that revoking the rights
and freedoms of the people are done for security, and will be re-instated. Anyone who has even briefly read their history knows; those rights and
freedoms will never be restored willingly.
And it is to those who reside in the United States, I remind you of your own foundation. A single paragraph, scribed through beauty, that once was
used to define your nation. Lets pray you take heed once more.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the
Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in
such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
I write this, not just for the sake of my future, but for the sake of yours.
Nations belong to the people, not the few who seek to control them.
Never permit this to be forgotten.
