While I feel your heart is in the right place, I likewise feel your mind needs a good swift kick in the cortex...
It is ALWAYS a good idea to "do good"... It's the Golden Rule, something I swear by. Kudos for trying to walk the noble path!
It's the "I don't care anymore" statement that I take issue with. This defeatist attitude is something that I have seen as a dangerous and
pervasive element in many posts through the weeks. (So you know I am not simply singling you out).
When we stop caring, we are doing so at the cost of our free will. Yes, we still have free will, regardless of the limitations to our personal
liberty. When we consign our free will to TPTB, they have already won the hardest victory.... It seems they have your "mind"... It's only a matter
of time before they also have your "heart", and then your noble intent is out the _
Am I wrong?
It could be argued that any conquering force throughout history aimed to achieve the "hearts and minds" (where have we heard that phrase before) of
the very people under their control. It is only then that resistance and dissent can be adequetly controlled.
My advice: Take back your mind, stop being such a quitter. The whole "Schindler" idea, while noble, is a pipe dream. Your very presence on this
board has marked you as a potential domestic threat.
I ask you: Will you choose Liberty, or Death?
It IS black or white. It IS that simple.
Not all of us are going "without a whimper", as the article in the OP implies. By your words, it seems almost as if this article were written about
you, and like minded individuals. Please take this as motivational, and in no way as a slight to your character.
You see, I try to do good things and treat others how I would be treated also...
That's what I would want others to do to me if I felt as hopeless as you obviously do.
