Quo Vadis America?
I’ve been thinking. A dangerous thing, I know.
I’ve been at this blogging thing for a few years now; many other have been at it much longer. I started out like all of us, I guess, with the idea that by educating others to the threat from Islam we could gain their support. After all, it was Einstein who said history was a race between education and catastrophe.
In my opinion, this race will be won by catastrophe.
Looking at what we have elected to lead us and the MSM becoming the propaganda arm of that leadership, I have come to the conclusion that there is little we can do now to ‘educate’ what’s left of the masses.
So, we wait for the catastrophe.
The issue then is Quo Vadis – which way does this country go after that.
Let me segue for a moment and compare today with the decade before WWII. That decade began with the American public having little interest in the current political problem in Europe and
They weren’t our concern in the early days of the 1930s. We had our own problems namely the Great Depression.
But over the years, as Americans were polled and they began to be educated by the events in Europe and in
That all changed on December 7th, 1941. After that date our country found its voice and as one, went to war to defeat the global threat to freedom.
Now fast forward 70 years.
Today, instead of a growing understanding of the threat facing us, the general public is growing less knowledgeable to the threat to their freedoms. And instead of an Administration that sees the threat, we have one that ignores it.
Over the 10 years from 1930 to 1940,
So what happens when the inevitable catastrophe occurs?
In the 1930s, we learned that our freedoms were at risk from tyrants and we had a government that saw that risk and acted on the cry from the public “Remember Pearl Harbor!” The general public demanded action. Demanded retaliation. Demanded that their freedoms be protected.
And the government complied.
I fear that this will not be the response when our catastrophe occurs - one that kills tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of Americans. I fear the response to public demand for action, retaliation and protection will go unheeded by the current leadership with their own idea of who the real enemy is. And when the public see that their leadership will not take the proper action, many will take that action upon themselves.
The response from such leadership we have today would be to turn on those carrying through on the necessary action to protect our freedoms. It will use the constitutional ‘crisis’ to impose draconian restrictions on our freedoms to protect the ‘victims’ who perpetrated the biggest bloodbath in American history.
There will be a choice and a choice will have to be made.
Will the current Administration respond as its predecessor did 70 years ago? Or will it turn on its citizens because deep down inside they refuse to recognize the enemy and fail to protect us from it.
