Editorial #333 Methinks Ye Protest Too Much
The line from Shakespeare’s play: “Methinks ye doth protest too much”, describes someone who overly insists their innocence when evidence to the contrary is overwhelming.
With our current state of affairs: Afghan, the pandemic, the economy, the climate, the border and the funding bill, if their policies made sense, why is the administration working so hard to sell their plans? They insist Afghan was “a successful withdrawal”. We must all get jabbed. There is no inflation. Humans are destroying the planet. The border situation is stable and the $2 Trillion infrastructure bill will cost ZERO. “Methinks ye doth protest too much!”
There is a myth that democracy means freedom to decide how we live, how we raise our family and how we handle our possessions. But when dishonest agendas spawns envy, revenge and greed, it becomes mob rule, which never turns out well.
Thank God we do not live in a democracy, better described as mob rule. The founders gave us a “Constitutional Republic” based on the core values of truth, fairness, sustainability and integrity, where individual right are protected. Even in republics, protest mobs can become uncontrollable riot where individual values and logic are abandoned. Destruction, violence and anarchy, by those who have nothing to lose, results. The most dangerous foe is someone who has “Nothing to Lose”. Our constitutional republic exists in name only, having violated or revoked so many of our constitutional freedoms that we are reaching that point where we have nothing to lose.
Their agenda destroys personal freedoms that are easily spotted like Hamlet’s Queen Gertrude said: ‘Methinks ye doth protest too much’. This is the deadly cycle that threatens our country, with hundreds of examples found throughout history.
Dictators always inject themselves into the culture, starting out with messages of sympathy and righteous calls for justice for the downtrodden. Dishonest agendas are then inserted through gentle coercion and fabricated grievance splitting our nation’s citizens while empowering repressive regimes. When these movement sense they are losing, panic sets in intensifying their repressive tactics by “striking while the iron is hot”. Their intention is to install a totalitarian government as soon as possible, before another election is held.
Panic lies behind these blatant lies: This will cost you nothing. Blanket vaccination will halt the pandemic. Anyone unvaccinated will be deprived employment. By insisting that stimulus money must be wasted by not allowing it to reduce taxes, improve roads, bridges or infrastructure is economic stupidity. In other words it must be spent and have nothing to show for it.
This stimulus is the greatest bribe for votes in history. Their “Robin Hood” promise to take from the rich to give to the poor will actually have the rich get richer with the poor getting nothing but more promises if they vote democrat and stay dependent on government aid. It is unstainable as they always run out of people with money.
We are truly living in the “Best of times and the worst of times” as this is the only time we have. Our purpose in life is to save our soul and make the world a better place. If one does the first, the second is guaranteed.
This is Keith Kube wishing you the best in making the world a better place.
