Ep. 94 - The Foundation of Our Future
We have a choice to make.
Being indecisive is a common affliction. It can be very difficult to figure out what the best decision is, especially in chaotic and challenging times. Sometimes we have to choose the hard right over the easy wrong, but in every case, we have to know why we are making any particular choice.
Many times, we are quick to get lost amidst too many options -- too many "What ifs" and "What abouts" clutter our thinking and we cannot see clearly what is most important to consider. To simplify the decision making process, we need to prioritize and assess which choices are most impactful, and which have the greatest chance of advancing the principles of liberty.
When it comes to the future of our country -- the future our children will inherit -- we must choose between "building back better" and embracing the globalist vision for Future Earth, or make the difficult but decisive choice to wrestle with fate and wrest our destiny from the ruthless grip of global tyrants. Please understand, for many people, this is not an easy decision.
It has never been easy to stand up to tyrants. There is great risk in breaking ranks, in being exposed as opposition, in drawing attention to the intent to dissent. Doing so means being labeled an enemy of people, an enemy of the state, and an enemy of the greater good. Real consequences await those who would be bold enough to rock the boat and challenge the status quo. Is it worth the risk?
What's at stake in this decision? What are the consequences of inaction? What do we risk by not making a stand, by not fighting for what's right? The words of Edmund Burke come to mind:
“All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.”
Though Burke was an English philosopher and statesmen, his words resonated throughout the American Revolution. He advocated before the British Parliament that the Americans be declared free at once. It was the year of 1777, a time of great suffering for the Americans who had severed allegiance to the crown and proclaimed their own Declaration of Independence.
These historical events changed the course of history, and offer great insight into the choices we face today. For patriots, stories from the American Revolution generate inspiration and courage. For political tyrants, these same stories represent a foreboding shadow of possible outcomes.
In today's podcast, I will share a few of these stories, reading from a book published in 1881 titled, "The Eclectic History of the United States.” How does this period of history impact us today?
Reflecting on the lessons from the founding of our country is a sobering exercise. What we find is that freedom isn't easy, and it's certainly not free. Freedom is hard fought and messy, and it demands great courage and tremendous sacrifice. Freedom is not a path for the faint of heart.
The extraordinary events of the last two years have brought to light the depths of our modern bondage. Within this context, we are faced with a decision: Do we seek to regain our freedom? Or, do we simply acquiesce and accept the socialist dictates of a globalist regime?
One path leads to liberty, the other leads to the death of the American dream. The choice is up to you.
