Editorial #301 What Is Happening?
More and more people are shaking their head in disbelief at the happenings in the world. Is it because previous generations did not live long enough to see the dramatic changes occurring during their life? Science and technology are moving at an ever faster pace, eliminating references to gender or God, explains much of this phenomenon.
Habits, customs, attitudes, economies and the human condition have been constant since the dawn of time, only the names have changed. We hear 24/7 news blasts with “earth shattering” situations, presented in an ever more dramatic fashion. We are all living longer and being exposed to more changes than ever before. Going from horse and buggy to landing a man on the moon in one’s lifetime is impressive, with electricity, internal combustion, nuclear energy, TV, computers, genetic medicine and the internet all happening along the way.
In these “the best of times and the worst of times” our national media, bureaucrats, politicians and academia have abandoned their integrity and honesty destroying any trust they had. The marketing axiom: “Perception is 99% Reality” is being used to full effect today.
We are told there is no border crisis; the country is racist; man is warming the planet; the elections were fair; there is no inflation; taking away guns makes us safer; gender is determined by choice; subsidizing idleness does not promote cultural and economic collapse; teaching gender dysphoria is healthy for young minds; it is OK to kill a baby in the womb; shutting down the country was necessary to save the country from Covid; and Joe Biden knows what he is doing?
These claims are almost impossible to believe for anybody with even the smallest amount of common sense. When something as simple as 2+2=4 is be debated trying to reach a compromise on 5, how is this advancing the culture?
This is what political correctness, Critical Race theory, Black Lives Matter and social justice has spawned.
It is almost inconceivable that the contrast between “Good and Evil” could be so difficult to see for so many. It is only a small segment of the population that promotes this, but there is money and power for those who join them in advancing it. National and social media, public education, the university system, marketing, psychology, lobbyists, politicians, unelected bureaucrats, drug cartels and crime syndicates all profit hugely.
The principles of Democrats or Republicans have morphed into a Uni-Party, where core values no longer apply. If a lie is repeated often enough even true believers will compromise that 2+2 = 5 to be accepted.
Follow the golden rule. There is no man-made global warming. Life begins at conception. The family unit is the foundation and salvation of the country. Self-reliance liberates you. Do not waste food or resources. Nothing is ever free. And, bureaucracies are weapons to undermine our God given Constitutional rights.
If you follow the Golden Rule, the Ten Commandments and give thanks in prayer that you have these guides so your example will be followed, that will make your corner of the world a better place.
Go forth and multiply.
This is Keith Kube wishing you the best that your actions are making the world a better place.
