Many of us are students of history. Unfortunately, all too few of us are. Which means that we are stumbling headlong into an inevitable crash with the train wrecks of civilizations that have passed before us. Whether it be the Ponzi schemes of our illustrious Financial Kingpins like Bernie Maddoff or the Reverse Sexual Harassment which San Diego Fire Chief Tracy Jarman forced upon 4 male firefighters, all the signs are here. Right in front of our noses.
Wake up, America. It’s time to start holding ourselves accountable for our deteriorating society. You, yes, you, reading this blog. Stand up. No, not at your computer table. I mean online. Educate yourself and then stand up for what you believe. Fiscal conservatism. Moral responsibility. Yes, you get it.
Read and learn all you can. And armed with that knowledge, stand up for what you believe in. Comment on blogs and on newspaper articles. Start your own blog and share your thoughts. The main stream media is dead now, we are the new purveyors of information. Write and call your local elected officials. get involved.
Why? What if we don’t? Then, read a good history book. And get ready for the long night ahead. It will be a cold one.
More to come.
