— Proverbs 23:7
An easy way to defeat others is to get them fighting among themselves. In this way, an enemy never risks casualties or expense. All that’s required to destroy a group, a community, a country, even a family, is bickering that alienates. Some form of fear is often the fuel [False Evidence Appearing Real].
The Second Amendment says well-regulated militias could arm themselves to preserve freedom. That language has been re-interpreted so that Americans can easily buy military-style weapons and kill other Americans. Did you know that there were fourteen mass shootings during the Fourth of July weekend? Thirteen weren’t widely reported because the national news couldn’t cover them all. Washington Post [Seems no outsiders need to attack US anymore.]
Shouldn’t child bearing be a topic that brings US together? As stated in Succeed and Soar’s “Seek Quality Life” Post, wouldn’t We the people be better off focusing on birthing babies who are well cared for, educated and can flourish?
Shouldn’t We The People require that leaders unite US in making this country [with its extraordinary diversity] what Abraham Lincoln called, “the last best hope of earth?” How can the epidemic outbreaks of hate-speech, fear-mongering, stingy, intolerant, boorish behavior be cured so that We the people realize Lincoln’s vision of US as a second Eden?
