“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke
When we view the chaos and carnage in today’s world, several questions come to mind. First, wasn’t it just a few scant years ago that things seemed peaceful? Well actually, it’s been about 20 years since things were “peaceful.” Twenty years ago is when Bill Clinton finally pushed us too far: His marital infidelity, his initiation into Bosnia, his ignorance of Islam, his boast that he balanced the federal budget when he did no such thing and his arrogance.
By the time Gore and Bush openly fought over who won 2000, America was already deeply divided. By the time 9/11 rolled around, we were so busy feuding that we didn’t notice our rights ebbing away for the sake of so-called security. Sure, it’s a dangerous world, but 13 years after 9/11 we are still quaking in our boots instead of stomping the enemy with those boots.
Twenty years ago, racial divisions were a bit better. Rodney King wanted us all to get along. OJ Simpson’s “victory” gave many blacks an opportunity to gloat. Bill Cosby was one of the most popular syndicated TV shows of all time. And rap music was still not exactly mainstream. Today, we have a “black” President who enjoys inciting riots and fanning flames. Yes, enjoys.
But this isn’t new. Louis Farrakhan has been around a long time, as have Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the usual bunch of criminals and nuts who parade. Give them credit, though, for longevity and their ability to command attention, if not respect. No black alive today was ever a slave in America, yet we are constantly bombarded with the idea that America is guilty. And that’s from white people! Yes, white racial militants are the new Black Panthers! Well, again, that’s not exactly true because it’s ALWAYS been the white racial militants who have helped the black racial militants have their day.
What would the Panther movement be without the Weather Underground? And if you think Bill Ayers is dead and forgotten, you’re wrong. He is still advising the White House, spreading communism at Zuccotti Park, and organizing with Turkish flotilla on Israel. He is still bragging that he wrote Obama’s biography, and arguing with Megan Kelly on Fox. Why?
That’s the second question: Why?
What is wrong with us that we would permit Fox to air Ayers without making a gigantic stink? To me, Ayers is one of the most dangerous people in America.
These are just examples. There are probably 1000 people globally I could name who need to be offed tomorrow in order to make this world less savage, less corrupt, less Marxist, less criminal, less hedonist. That’s in America, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Central America, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Pakistan, Gaza, Nigeria, Libya, and several other places of interest; basically, one thousand of these people so that the rest of us can breathe again.
Now, you might ask, and rightly so, wouldn’t the vacuum simply be filled with more evil? If those people die natural deaths, of course. If it’s a coup from within, naturally. But I was talking about the less probable event, that good people would take things into their own hands.
Is that an oxymoron that good people should or would take things into their own hands? I think the thought that it seems like an oxymoron is what keeps good people from doing right things. They think, “I’m not going to stoop to their level.” And so the evil continues while good people do nothing, all in the name of having a clear conscience. Or so they think. It’s really for vanity, so other people will say what a good person they are for not stooping to such-and-such level. Meanwhile, evil continues as good people pat themselves on the back.
And make no mistake: evil people know how good people think, and evil people pat good people on the back for not making waves. That’s why on TV you see even some CONSERVATIVES getting compliments for accepting evil – compliments from evil people!
And this brings us to our third question: If good people are going to do nothing, how will good people finally win the day? Or, more simply, will a miracle occur?
If you’re waiting for God to bring things to balance again, I’m with ya on that. However, good people standing around waiting for Him is the reason He has to come in the first place! If we wouldn’t stand around yakking about the next Coming, and would in fact do something outside of our vanity, God wouldn’t need to bail us out because He’s already given us the grace to accomplish what needs to be done. It is completely vain to think that we are good people for doing nothing, or for tenderly applying ourselves to tough objectives, or for withdrawing from confrontation. And it is completely vain to think that God is on our side when we’ve done nothing except proclaim how righteous we are for doing nothing!
So, just on that subject, we need more than a miracle. We need God to overlook how completely selfish and hedonistic we are. Hedonistic? Yes. Remember, Revelation 13 tells us that, to permit the continuance of buying and selling (economy, eating and drinking), “good people” took the Mark of the Beast. Taking the Mark of the Beast simply means to allow evil to run rampant, as long as your lifestyle isn’t too negatively impacted. It’s a form of privilege, to think that no matter what you do, you’re safe, or that you’re just being pragmatic. Well, you’re not safe. And pragmatism isn’t stopping evil from spreading.
So what are we actually waiting for? Are we hoping evil will just die off on its own? I have news for you – it won’t. We didn’t nip it in the bud, we didn’t make examples of anyone, and now there is an entirely new generation of militant radicals who have no fear of God, and who have an entire lifetime to work at controlling, or destroying.
Islam? Reared from birth. New, young converts every day.
Corruption in government? Brand-new staffers and interns every day, learning the ins and outs of graft, nepotism, favoritism, and all the things we love about government.
Statism? Nationalistic socialism is always the breeding ground of the poor, and if there’s one thing the young love to purport they endorse, it’s the end of poverty. Especially their own poverty. So we now see dozens of neo-Nazi groups popping up in the unlikeliest of places. Likewise, Communism is annually groomed in our universities, even high schools. And always the unionization of the impoverished, as if unionization automatically gives the poor the sophistication necessary to get what they want, or to fight the corruption inherent in that socialism.
Crime? If the new rap generation doesn’t scare you, perhaps the pace at which gangs are growing, due to increase in fatherless children, due to mindless acceptance of single-motherhood, will scare you. Or perhaps you think our cities, such as Chicago, are becoming younger and therefore safer?
And hedonism? Forget about it. Whether its sensuality, ingestion of pharmacopeia, piercing of skin, acceptance of paganism, or just plain eating and drinking, everybody is out of control. Youth is not more clean-cut than the older generation, which is scary by itself, to think that the oldsters are also juvenile in mind. I was a youth, and I did youthful things, but in the end I wanted to be accepted for who I was, as a good person. Today’s youth wants to be accepted no matter what they do, good or bad. Their motto is not “you can’t judge a book by its cover” (true) but “you can’t judge me!” (false). That is an exertion of hedonism as hegemony! Sodom and Gomorrah, in other words.
So we cannot simply think better times are coming. We are not evolving spiritually, but decaying into pagans. We are not evolving towards holiness, but simply tolerating evil. We are not evolving physically, except the most savage will defeat the weak and fey, which means the Muslims win. Except the Old World Order has better weaponry. However, it’s in evil hands. Hmm. Maybe I can just “accidentally” hit the chessboard and start the game all over?
