Tired of the Guilt Card

Tired of the “guilt” card!

 
This is why the UN has outlived its usefulness—it wants to meddle in  nation”s internal politics! Instead of offering a kind of global meeting place for nations to resolve its differences in a non-military manner, it wants to mold this world into an image it thinks is appropriate.
 
And of course that image is of a social liberal kind!
 
The main course for all these machinations is the USA, if they can change us then the rest of the world is an open and easier target!
This emphasis on reparations for slavery just continues a farce that has been going on in this country for awhile!  150 years away and money needs to be paid out, and the natural question is—to whom? All the first, second, and third, and who knows how many generations are gone! It doesn’t make sense to pay anyone remotely descended from slaves now!
 
And of course there has always been a hypocrisy with this issue since the US is the only culprit it seems. But Muslims had a slave trade of great magnitude, where is the demand for reparations from those nations? And then the African tribes sold their enemies as slaves to slave traders, and their enemies were black! What about those?
 
But no, it is only the US which counts! For some reason our slavery scenario was deemed more harmful in some way and thus needs a special dispensation of penance to find redemption!
 
The whole thing is a pile of something!!! and it really is just another slick variation of redistribution of wealth! And the emotion of “guilt” is played upon!
 
So in my opinion what should have been done a long time ago is a two-fold reaction: first, take back the land the UN is upon, and second, kick them out of our country! Their usefulness is null and void!  

Our Enemy the State

The more things change ….!

 
Do these following statements pertain to today?

1. There are two primary means by which human needs can be met:
a. One’s own labor—called the economic means
b. Pursuing such interests by the “unrequited appropriation of others”—political means

2. Redistribution of power is taking place between the State and society. (“State” meaning Federal Gov’t in this article)

3. State policy involving many societal issues mean one thing in the end: an increase of State power, decrease of social power.

4. All the power a State has is what society gives it. (The question becomes whether it is too late to recover it from the State)

5. What was once delivered by Social Power has now been largely taken over by the State, the State has evolved into the thinking of “owing its citizens a living”.

6. “Turning every contingency into a resource for the accumulation of force in the government” is an old trick—James madison

7. The continual method of accumulating more and more power thru every contingency “develops a habit of acquiesance in the people”.

8. There are three indices of the US absorption of power:
a. Assumption of state power into Federal
b. increase of bureaucracy and hence employees for the Gov’t
c. indiscriminate help of the poor or others with needs, without regard for those who are undeserving—this creates a “mass of subsidized voting power”.

9. The device of “judicial review and interpretation, which, as we have already observed, is a process whereby anything may be made to mean anything”. (Think Supreme Court’s rulings)

All these points above are quotes or paraphrases of Albert Jay Nock in his book “Our Enemy the State”, (parenthesis are mine). It doesn’t take much to see our present political landscape reflected in these statements and recognizing the “liberal democrat” ideas throughout.

Of note is the fact that this book was actually written in 1935 as Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal was becoming more and more a part of the social landscape. The more things change…….!

The analysis is still valid today and probably the political mechanisms involved in this acquisition of power is far worse now, not just a little, but by a longshot! Since Nock, our nation has endured the Great Society programs of Johnson and the Healthcare debacle of Obama. More and more we are entangled in the Federal Government. While some parts of those programs may have been needed, they have morphed out of control and now act as an “albatross hung about our neck”, to quote Coleridge.

This particular election represents the coup de grace of sorts concerning the absorption of power by the Federal Gov’t, if it goes the way of Clinton! With so many Supreme Court judges possibly being replaced, and with their penchant of creating large scale social changes, if liberals have their way—we will forever be changed and become more enslaved by a liberal worldview! I see no good coming from that scenario!!

The more things change ….!

Poem—“Tales”

Tales
 
From the land of the Typee,
On the path for the Green Knight,
Past the isle of the Cyclops,
On the field of Roland’s demise,
Kafka’s castle still a secret.
 
Walking with the one of Underground,
See Arthur the King’s trust betrayed,
Thrilled with Carter on Barsoom,
Pity the Eloi before the Morlock,
Reach Paradiso by Beatrice’s hand.
 
The wide road of imagination,
Winding amidst youthful minds,
Many pleasant intrusions receive,
Tales a fresh inhale of breath,
Peaceful excursions! Peaceful escapes!

Wasps

“Wasp”
 
“Wasp” is a sci-fi novel written in 1957 by Eric Frank Russell. The premise of the book concerns an Earthman sent to an alien world to blend in and create all kinds of “subversive” actions against an empire that Earth was warring against. Great sci-fi and still enjoyable to read in spite of the strides sci-fi has attained through print and tv/movies over the decades. A paragraph in the beginning sets the plot and has a “sense” about it which relates to more than just a basic sci-fi story! The quote is as follows:
 
“The weight of a wasp is under half an ounce. Compared with a human being, the wasp’s size is minute, its strength negligible. Its sole armament is a tiny syringe holding a drop of irritant, formic acid. In this instance, the wasp didn’t use it. Nevertheless, that wasp killed four big men and converted a large, powerful car into a heap of scrap.”
 
This referred to an accident in which a wasp entered a car with four occupants and the driver subsequently crashed while trying to thwart that wasp! The hero of this story was going to be characterized as a “wasp” on that alien planet and this incident was used to recruit him.
 
As I read this I also thought about another mystery. Its the mystery how the mind can be “triggered” into thinking about certain things. The “wasp” idea brought to my mind many kinds of memories and thoughts. 20 years ago they may not have been as many, but time and experiences enlarges our memory reservoir and when triggered, as in this example, the accumulated thoughts and ideas of our life are somehow released in one big stream full of thoughts.
 
I recall a friend growing up who was afraid of wasps. Driving with him was alright until a wasp would enter the car—and most of us have had that experience. He was one of those, like in the book, whose main priority was getting rid of that wasp. His reaction was franticity at an accelerated pace. Even if going 50 miles per hour, if his racing mind could have allowed him to relax a moment, he would have opened the door and jumped out, and every one would have been on their own–but he would have been away from the wasp! And as a matter of fact, just a couple of weeks ago I got stung by a wasp—and it hurt like the dickens—it had been so long that I had forgot how irritating it could be!
 
The point about the wasp is that a very small thing can cause large effects! There are positive and negative examples.
 
Negative examples could be political such as the effect an individual can cause by their actions in office. I am thinking about the President of course. Many of us who are Christian and Conservative are amazed at the moral slippery slope we have advanced down these last 7 or so years. We also could look at the economic, racial, and foreign-related activities which this President has effected in a very negative way and in a certain sense, he has acted in a subversive manner against this nation! Another example would be the actions of a terrorist in which their actions that may not result in large-scale physical destruction or human harm, nevertheless it can paralyze a large population in many ways!
 
And I thought of some positive examples. The apostle Paul was antagonized by a constant “thorn in the flesh”. He sought the Lord three times until He was told that whatever the “thorn” was (a spiritual “wasp”?)—it would have to be endured and God then told him that “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness”. We don’t know what the thorn was but it was antagonizing Paul in many ways and though he never found relief until the next life, the affect of that had a major impact on Christians ever since as God’s grace-as-sufficient, has been experienced by countless believers down through the ages!
 
I also think of the impact people have just everyday! A word here, a kind act there, a listening ear, some simple action not considered anything but a simple act, but nevertheless had far-reaching consequences unbeknownst even to the doer many times! Small things with big effects!
 
I also thought about those kinds of memories involving reacquaintances of the past. Especially after many years are the examples of “crossing paths” meaningful. Whether someone from high school who hasn’t been seen since graduation, or someone who was a great help when a Christian experience just started and was being formed, or for teachers, crossing paths with a student from one’s first year of teaching many years ago. Those kinds of occurrences allow for a reliving of the past through memories. It also allows a review of sorts of one’s life since those long ago days. While the past reemerges through those meetings, new beginnings can also occur as the future unfolds differently after those encounters.
 
“Wasps”! Small things! Big effects! The mysteries of the Mind! All from reading a basic sci-fi story!

God’s Wisdom and Nietzsche

Wisdom
 
In the book “Dawn: Thoughts on the Presumption of Morality”, by Friedrich Nietzsche, Christianity is attacked quite a few times from many directions. Nietzsche had a disdain for Christianity, though his father was a pastor and he was raised in a Christian home, on many levels and one of his purposes was creating a system whereby values for mankind would be generated without the need for religion, particularly Christianity.
 
In a particular “creative” approach to this system development, he challenges Christians about their faith. He often ridicules the life of “faith” as lacking in intellectual substance and so he offers an exercise for Christians to undertake with the goal of making their intellectual case more acute. He really wanted people to think they could live without Christianity and thus to walk completely away from it—a slick kind of “cleansing”, Nietzsche style! What he proposes though, is logically counter to what a Christian can do in their apologetical methods and shows that Nietzsche didn’t really understand Christianity at all.
 
He says of Christians:
 
“they owe it to themselves just once, for extended time, as an experiment, to live without Christianity; they owe it to their “faith” to undertake just once a stay of this sort “in the wilderness”—-“
 
Also, he says:
 
“No, your evidence does not weigh a thing until you have lived for years without Christianity, longing with genuine fervor to endure in opposition to Christianity”.
 
Nietzsche seems to act as if the experience of Christianity is comparable to different kinds of diets, in which one diet is tried for awhile and then another, with comparisons to occur later. He also must think that Christianity is mainly an outward based system of rituals and actions which are easily traded for another different set. He doesn’t understand that for the true Christian, the “faith” is not something to try one day as opposed to something else, but is something mystical, an occurence which takes place deep down in the soul, unexplainable exactly in words, but evidenced in a change of one’s whole being, something which must be experienced by each person individually to fully “understand” what the “faith” of Christianity is all about. As a people who defend the faith in a varied intellectual manner, walking away from faith and subsequently returning with a possible stronger motivation or strength, is not a valid method of the Christian life! Christians understand that all too welll! Nietzsche didn’t! 
 
A Christian walking away from the faith in this manner would be similar to a farmer, who after having planted his fields and watched the crops begin to blossom, decide to destroy that crop right when it was ready to harvest—it is a nonsensical thing. The parable of the Sower in the Gospels reflects on the possible responses to the Gospel message. When that message is received and taken root, then much fruit is produced, the kind of fruit which reflects a changed heart and soul and results in a life undergoing a transformation towards a more Christ-like image! We don’t destroy that work!
 
The faith of a Christian can not be strengthened by a deliberate rejection of that experience and with what Nietzsche calls “living for years without Christianity”! Nietzsche thinks that somehow revisiting the old sinful life again (though he probably wouldn’t say sinful) will sharpen a life in a way which is different then a life being changed by the Spirit of God. It won’t!
 
Another example I can think of is the family. What sense would it make to tell a child that in order to appreciate their family better, that they should reject that love, live apart for a few years and then the return to the family will be for the good! There is nothing about that which even makes any sense! We wouldn’t accept that as a strategy for raising kids and helping them to appreciate their families more—it is absolutely contradictory and nonsense!
 
Nietzsche illustrates the clash of wisdoms which relates to this world. One wisdom is man’s wisdom, the other is God’s wisdom. Those two wisdoms sometimes are in agreement, after all we are made in His image and though while tainted by the effects of sin, we retain certain intellectual capabilities He intended for us to have, and that is what is exercised in the our natural existence. But in the most important matter of knowing and relating to God, our wisdom is absolutely deficient and so we need God’s wisdom to understand salvation and Him. That wisdom is imparted through Christ and His Word through the Spirit of God! Sometimes we use our wisdom and may accidentally come upon facts which later we find to correspond to Truth, but there is no ultimate measure for truth in man’s wisdom alone.
 
The clash of man’s wisdom and God’s wisdom is seen clearly in I Corinthians chp. 1. There God clearly illustrates that by design, His relating to Mankind is not by the reasonings of natural man but by His wisdom through His Word! The best and clearest verse relating to this gulf between the wisdoms is given in v.21:
 
“For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe.”
 
Another version has:
 
“For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.”
 
A couple more verses:
 
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise….”
 
“Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men”.
 
So what God was doing here is putting Man’s wisdom in the proper place, and, making the work of salvation His work alone and not something Man could possibly contribute and possibly brag about. It goes much deeper than that but the point is that Nietzsche is trying to use his wisdom towards an end which is counter to what God wants. Nietzsche may have been lost to God but present day Christians shouldn’t listen to anything which conflicts with the wisdom of God…..and where is that wisdom found? The Bible!!! (I know some will say many interpretations, hard to understand, etc., but these are just superficial excuses only).  
 
Man may posit his “wisdom” in a manner which may purport to help the Christian, but if that wisdom conflicts with the Truth set out in the Bible, that wisdom is to be rejected—so Nietzsche (and those who follow him today), consider your “wisdom” rejected!

Imagination

What will it take before scientists finally realize that evolution is false! Random chance events can not produce the amazing complexity of the world! As each layer of the “onion” of knowledge is peeled back, the complexity only increases as well, making it even harder for evolution to work.
The jig was really up in the sixties at a conference called the Wistar Symposium, held in Philadelphia in 1966. At that conference probability mathematics was used by some scientists to raise serious doubts on the possibility that random chance could do what evolutionists claimed. Evolutionists like to say that billions of years is enough time to do anything randomly but the mathematicians said otherwise. Ever since that time, probability mathematics has been the “thorn in the flesh” to evolutionist scientists and they have never mounted a good case against it.
While they love to laugh and sneer and cut down those who disagree, especially Creationists, they are yet still without a legitimate model showing how life could even begin. Even with supercomputers, many geniuses, countless thinkers reflecting about it, the origin of life is still impossible to crack. And this was supposed to be a simple-to-complex theory and they can’t even get started! And garnishments and creative “tweaks” trying to overcome probability has still not solved their basic problem—which is “How did life begin?”
And really the origin of life problem is only one, there is still not a good theory about planet and sun formations which has to take place before the life question can even be anticipated! Critics are being kind to evolutionist in allowing them to have an earth, maybe some water, and some other things, and even then, they are lost! In actuality, evolutionists have really established very little in the way of legitimate solutions to how the universe was formed. Maybe that is because the whole idea is flawed!
The hint should have been taken back in the sixties about the impossibilty of evolutionary processes producing all this and scientists should have raised the white flag to “design” advocates back then! But this whole thing is really a spiritual battle involving the question of God’s existence or not and His role in this universe! With no choice but naturalistic processes or God as the answer, evolutionary scientists would rather accept the impossible scenario, as in random chance events,rather than acquiescing to the thought of God!
In the end they are only making themselves look more ridiculous—but they are developing a good imagination with all the practice of story telling they do regarding how random chance can produce so much! I liken their problem now as being worse than the example someone gave as illustrating the nature of evolution. That example was of a tornado going through a junkyard and producing a Rolls Royce car after it had passed through. Now with even more complexity since that quote, it would be as if there was an airless atmosphere and then the tornado episode would occur. Even more difficult! Some people can believe it if they want—I’ll stick to a Designer!

The Lying Bunch

Another liberal hypocritical reporter in the tank for the Clintons. This is another example illustrating how the Clinton’s are encouraged and enabled to maintain their status as “above” everything and everyone! Never mind the possible “bias” due to Amanpour’s husband working on Clinton’s 2008 campaign, as the article mentioned. Maybe Amanpour thinks by defending Hillary some kind of “benefit” will come her way.
 
History will show this as the time that the Press made a complete fool of themselves and undermined the so-called “objective” adjective they like to self-describe themselves with! Not so!, and Amanpour really makes a fool of herself by actually accusing those who debate Hillary’s health as “sexist”! That charge is being a little overused, I think, and really shows a juvenile view of things and really is a putdown in many ways to women as well. What? Hillary can’t handle it! Maybe that disqualifies her as President just on that point!
 
We better be worried about a Hillary presidency for many reasons besides health, but health does go to the heart of proper decision making, full concentration powers being available and the need of physical presence in many places. Right now I don’t think and many others don’t think she will be physically capable. Choosing a President is more important than the charge of sexism, so I hope most people will just laugh it off and keep pursuing the health issue.
 
And given the Clinton’s obvious penchant for absolute lying, one can’t help but wonder what is really happening, so the questions of her health must be continued. All her minions lie just as much as she does and the truth about her will not come voluntarily so it has to be fought and searched for. Amanpour’s cavilier attitude reflected in her comment “can’t a girl have a sick day or two?” Uh, yes, a girl can!, but Hillary’s situation isn’t just that and rises far above the simplistic notions that Amanpour would want us to think!
 
I think a nice conclusion to all of the Clinton soap opera antics would be—lose the election and just disappear…..forever!
 

A Forgotten Novel

Nevil Shute wrote a book called “On the Beach”, reflecting on the results of a nuclear war and its global effects. The setting is Australia, which was one of the last large land areas to be affected. The northern hemisphere had waged a nuclear war, primarily between the United States, Russia, China and a few others. The resulting destruction of the bombs was immediate to the countries directly involved, but the after-effects ended up devastating the rest of the world. The wind currents were slowly circulating the large radiation clouds in such a way that the whole globe was going to be affected. Since the dose was lethal, mankind was going to die off! The story is about a small group of people who had only a few months until the radiation reached them, and they knew there was nothing they could do about it!
The novel was written in 1957, the Cold War was in full swing and the fifties had an “atomic’ mood illustrated by many B-type sci-fi movies illustrating the effects of radiation! Movies such as “Them”, “The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms, “Godzilla” and others explored the effects of nuclear testing. Before my time, but I enjoyed the TV reruns of these movies as a kid back in the sixties….and still enjoy them today!
A gripping novel which actually causes the reader to easily merge into the “what-would-I-do-in-that-situation” mode of thinking! Most of us understand mortality and that our time here on Earth is finite. But for most of us that is a “conceptual” point in time, some time in the future, when we will “have shuffled off this mortal coil”, as Shakespeare referenced in Hamlet! The way the characters in this novel confronted the fact of their impending “shuffling” is what makes the book so compelling. It came down to the existential question of meaning—how shall one live when guaranteed only a small amount of time.
This same question is answered differently in the “Last Policeman” trilogy, a series written between 2012 and 2014 by Ben Winters. The plot of those books revolved around an impending asteroid collision which would wipe out the planet. It didn’t take long after the realization that nothing could be done, when the infrastructure of the world basically collapsed as everyone went off on their own, fulfilling every kind of wish or whim, good or bad. Totally different attitude illustrated in this trilogy compared to “On the beach”! Every man for himself!
In Shute’s novel, the characters looked at their situation through a lens of hope and reality. They continued to live their lives as if their future would extend many more years, even though there were only months. Their actions today may be interpreted as “out of touch” because their efforts and plans were for a future impossible to occur. The town the story centers around, still conducted business, continued to place orders for items no longer available, took credit, and acted like a typical business. Some of the townspeople still planted gardens which wouldn’t produce until long after the radiation had wiped them out. There were a couple scientific theories about radiation possibly weakening at parts of the world, enough for a move into those areas, but those turned out to be baseless.
They knew time would run out and the things they were doing would be for nothing, but that was the compelling part of the story, the existential part—the question of how shall we live our lives even when impending doom is upon us? That is still relevant for everyday life’s circumstances, especially those negative circumstances, not as dramatic as the end of the world, but which still bear down hard!!
The difference between this novel and “The Last Policeman” novels is one of character substance! Is our life in some sense fake or real? What is the character of an individual deep down? When the constraints of society are loosed, what comes out? Good questions and a modern context for perspective would be looting during disasters—not everyone loots!
What I liked about this book was the “hope” that was mixed in—it wasn’t explicitly mentioned but was there anyhow. When the future looks dim, our hope comes to the fore, as well as our character. The way we look at life many times determine the course of action we take, if our character is not strong then the challenges of life can be compounded greatly by the wrong choice of actions! “Hope” allows us to “see” through the present things occurring now,  and also provides a strength to keep working towards the future, whatever the amount of time available!
For the Christian, “hope” plays a special role. It is an “an anchor of the soul”, as Hebrews mentions, and helps put into perspective the struggles of life. While Christianity doesn’t guarantee the kinds of conclusions we personally may wish for when circumstances overwhelm us, it does guarantee the strength to persevere, the wisdom to walk “rightly”, and the promise of a better abode in Heaven.
Character and Hope! Makes a difference in life anyhow! And really makes a difference when those things are centered on Christ!

God or Caesar

God or Caesar?

When the Roman Senate deified Julius Caesar after his death, Emperor worship, along with the Imperial cult, eventually became a unifying theme for the Empire. Worship of the Roman Emperors was thus encouraged and enforced with consequences for disobeying. That became a conflict for Christians who believe that God, the Father of Christ, is the only one due the kind of worship which Rome demanded for its Emperors. While the consequences ranged from property confiscation, prison, or death, and was not enforced at all times in the Empire, it was still a major impediment for Christians of that day!

Religious freedom was one of the main reasons this country was established! And we are continually seeing it being unraveled in any way possible. Are we actually resurrecting Roman practices which were so antithetical to the Christian worldview? I would definitely say yes!

This report says that when nondiscrimination and religious liberty are not compatible—-the resolution is to make religious liberty subservient to nondiscrimination. If this becomes the actual ruling principle our nation uses to adjudicate disputes involving religious liberty, religious liberty will be absolutely crushed—-everything relating to the Biblical worldview of Christians will be discriminatory to someone, so by a slow, step by step process all the Christian’s liberty will be outlawed!

History repeating itself? A new Imperial cult demanding allegiance towards its anti-christian leaders? The more some things change, the more it stays the same!

And Christians better start thinking of the future if Hillary gets elected and stacks the Court with her choices! A Valley of Decision scenario may be facing us!

Generals for Trump—Smart!!

The latest issue of Foreign Affairs had an article called “Preserving Primacy: A Defense Strategy for the New Administration”. Within the article there was a quote of Dwight Eisenhower which is pertinent this election season. The quote as follows:

“Our system must remain solvent as we attempt a solution of this great problem of security. Else we have lost the battle from within that we are trying to win from without.”

Very relevant today with our status on the world stage all but destroyed by Obama. His cliff-dive into deeper debt also rings a bell with the above quote about solvency, as well as the enemies Obama’s soft-hearted and out-of-touch liberal worldview has produced.

At least there are 88 people who understand the world and recognize that flare and polish only goes so far and that action and a no-fear attitude is what this world now demands from the US.

Generals for Trump—I think they are on to something!!
