Sometimes we feel like what we are up against as the Democrats pursue their Cloward-Piven strategy of destruction and social engineering is an impossible battle that just can't be won. I hear it from conservatives all the time. "We're done." "It's not a matter of if, it is a matter of when." "A collapse is inevitable."
It will get worse before it gets better. I believe that. Resisting evil is never easy. I am also a student of history, and like Alexander Tytler, I see things moving in cycles, and simply put, we are nearing the end of another cycle.
Systems of liberty last about 200 to 250 years. We are at about year 240. Systems of liberty begin with the people in bondage, and from that bondage they cry out to God, leading them to a period of spiritual awakening. Out of the spiritual awakening rises courage. That courage is godly, and unbreakable. And from that courage arises the battles that must be fought, and then a rise of liberty. Abundance always follows liberty, and then as human nature grabs hold, the prosperity becomes selfishness, and the full bellies lead to complacency and apathy. While complacent, the tyrants begin their march, and at first they lead us to dependence through an administrative tyranny. Eventually, that dependence becomes more, and before long we find that we are in bondage once again.
We are on the edge of bondage, and the reality is, we will probably have to go through that portion of the cycle before we begin to rise up again as a free nation of liberty. The more educated and informed we are, and the more we fight to maintain our system of liberty, the shorter and milder that period of bondage will be.
It is not an impossible endeavor. We must do all we can to be the Ciceros of our day.
Cicero was one that fought for the Roman Republic. He couldn't save his society, but his writings inspired men like Thomas Jefferson as they were involved in the creation of ours.
