Editorial #180 The True Cost of War
The United States is currently fighting two civil wars. One is against this pandemic and other is against racism. Both are terrible issues and should be eradicated, but they are being hijacked and exacerbated by the deep state to divide and conquer the country. The division is not whether to fight these wars but how to fight these wars. Should the country compromise our constitutional rights, freedoms, liberty, economy, right to worship and work as well as using discrimination to stop racism and stop the spread of this virus?
Wars are terrible and are always fought to stop those who want to pervert our core values of truth, fairness, sustainability and integrity. These are wars of ideas that have lasting consequences if our core values are compromised. The winner of any war always declares which core values are to be followed.
When deciding to fight a war, the price is always less than the cost of not fighting it. There is no limit to what we will pay to keep from losing everything. If one does not care about our core values or if they don’t know what they are, they will not pay the price to defend them. If liberals want to destroy our core values and the country, replacing them with socialism, they have nothing to lose. Their looting is profitable and fun. This explains the madness that is happening. Not enough people are aware of how close we are to losing our cherished core values upon which our country was built and the radicals are seeing how far they can go before being stopped.
This pandemic was sold as something that will kill everyone, if we don’t shut down the country. The Black Lives Matter movement is being propagandized as every white person in the country hating all blacks. Both are blatant lies with the deep state using emotion, fear, hypocrisy and self-serving agendas to set policy.
Social distancing does not save lives. It only slows the demand for hospital beds. The country has been shut down for months with over 120,000 still dying, of whom 80% were over 65 and the median age was 80. The risk of death for those under 65 is lower than chance of being killed in a car accident on the way to work. The increase in cases reported are due to the order of magnitude increase in testing, many of whom were asymptomatic. The number of deaths has steadily decreased since April with a recovery rate of over 98%.
Since 2017, the National statistics for police killings by race were: 1398 white and 755 black. Any lives lost when police are trying to do their job is terrible but that does not justify riots, looting, burning flags or kneeling during the National Anthem. To use these incidences, that occur twice as often to whites, as evidence that all police are racist is hypocritical with no evidence of systemic racism found anywhere.
The pandemic is natural selection at work and the racism is a problem that only exists in the minds of those who accuse everyone else of it. The deep state is trying to suck us into these battles. The past is past and can’t be undone. The only good that came from these demonstrations are the rioters and protesters were the perfect Guinea Pigs as a control, to test the efficiency of the social distancing. It is ironic these riots are undermining the scare tactic used by the deep state to keep the country closed down.
