Safety. What a sweet word. We all want our children to be safe. We want to be safe and we understand that the people of the entire world want to be safe.
Safety is the most understated condition of our planet. Without safety we would all have died already as would our families, friends and relatives. The fact is, however, that we need people that we pay to keep us safe. There is no getting around this fact. Those people are the armed forces and the police in all their various capacities. the UsA is, arguably, the safest place on the planet and has been for decades. It will remain so only as long as we understand how expensive safety is. Unfortunately, there are many who think of their safety as a right instead of owning up to the thousands who have given their lives to protect the safety of us all.
These are people which I refer to as the “gimme’s.” Gimme what I want without argument. these people are scholars, liberals, extremists and reliers. Reliers are those who can work but do not. Those who rely on the working people to fund their existence. When I say scholars I am not necessarily speaking of academics or singling out higher education. I am speaking of those who would plan the demise or radical change of our democracy. Those who, to support their end game, rewrite history to accommodate their goals of subversion of society. Or, to foster change to a government which, time and again, has been proven to not have the best interests of its people in mind.
One can argue, perhaps in a jaded fashion, that our government has not always had the best interest of our people in mind and I would agree with that. The beauty is that we can change that government every four years. (2 years on the state level). This ability to change our government coupled with its built in checks and balances to greatly hamper a coup of some type has been the foundation of a Republic for over two hundred years. Certainly we have had our ups and downs. That is to be expected if we acknowledge the human element of any institution.
What has our government insured for us? Safety. Foremost of all that we have is safety. Hard fought and through terribly difficult times we have all relied on safety. Unfortunately though, safety has its casualties. Those being people who turn against the nation as it is for their own ignorance of the safety they have. It is almost bromidic to say but safety is the reason that these people have this ability. Ignorance is the shelter they hide in while shouting down the freedoms which they use to tell us how wrong this country is to them. Not just their ignorance. Oh no. The ignorance they teach in the halls of higher education after having sown the seeds in elementary and high schools. It is a disease that they instill in our children. This despite all the strides we have made in recognizing acknowledging the worth of all races, creeds and cultures.
Human traits are rampant in human beings. Such traits as prejudice are outshoots of fear. Easily set a side through conversation but exacerbated by those who prey on those fears. these fears have no color boundaries. All people have fear of those who do not look the same on the outside. One only needs to be truly engaged with many colors with a singular purpose to see how quickly these fears are assuaged. That is the great thing about the military. Despite all of society the military forces each individual to look at others with respect and friendship. Not so on University campuses where the denigration of humanities natural tendencies are warped to be sold in more denigration until any confidence in past steps forward are maligned to have been racist, bigoted or supremacist.
This, then, is the problem. It isn’t you or I. it is the fools on a fools errand of subversion of a country that, though flawed, has made such major changes in its inward thinking and outward extensions of social grace which is being subverted in so perverse a fashion as to call into question each individual who has given their lives over all this countries centuries just for the maintenance our own safety. Furthermore, this subversion and perversion continues and I call on each of us to stop the errant subversion of ourselves by an elite group whose brain is tainted by tincture of cultism and arrogance sans religion.
Don’t take our safety, such a simple word, for granted. Do not be subverted into thinking you are wrong for having a natural fear of others. It is human. It has always been and no government or group will ever change that. You are graced by being an individual. Grow your individuality and do so with helping to bridge the gap of fear with your individuality. It is what I have done. It has worked quite well for me and I am the least original person you would ever want to meet.
