Inspired by the article below by James Howard Kunstler at Kunstler.com in a roundabout way via Knuckledraggin.com via Zerohedge.com – h/t to both sites. This is great example of the networking principle – word gets around. In yo face GRRRRGLE!
My take on all if this is this: there is no getting around the principle of “actions have consequences”. It is not a matter of IF, but a matter of WHEN – pure and simple. There is no escaping it. One cannot outrun it.
As a Christian, I trust Almighty God will make things right in His own time. While some may scoff at this, I’ll point out even non-believers will point to “karma”. Some lofty folks like to say “the universe” will do whatever. Both of these ideas imply a consciousness and and a scorecard. Do you eschew all of that? Okay, then consider everything man has done – everything. Men are truly the screwups of our little world here. Everything we’ve ever built ends up as a pile of some sort of shit. Consequences baby.
Even while implying the question, Kunstler’s article answers it. This nation is on the brink of collapse. There is no need for a civil war or any “revolution”. All we really need to do is sit back and watch things fall down around our ears. This is where we are headed.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ― Edmund Burke.
True as this may be, should evil indeed triumph, such victory will be short-lived. Why? Because evil cannot win. This is exactly why men fail again and again because man cannot escape the sin nature introduced by Adam without the Savior from Sin, Jesus the Messiah. Until our Messiah returns, any result can only be temporary.
That said, I am not willing to munch popcorn while this nation burns. This is exactly the reason for this website and all my efforts. I absolutely believe it is possible to return our nation into a God-fearing constitutional republic where liberty thrives. The alternative promises dire, um, consequences.
