Each of us was born into this country, at this time, in this place for a reason. We are here to do a job. We are a part of destiny, as grandiose as that may sound. Nothing in the Universe is an accident. Either we rise to the destined job that we are here to do or we fail. Personally fail and fail the concept of evolution of a free humanity as well.
I woke up this morning to check on the news and I read an article that strikes true terror into my heart. Ostensibly, it was about people challanging some proposed laws that would affect the public to an extraordinary, almost unprecedented degree, but really, it was about totalitarianism vs. freedom.
The journalist states that it takes quite a bit of“gall” for the governed to tell the governing how to do things.
Yes, you read that correctly. It takes GALL for we the governed to tell the government our opinion. That is what he wrote.
The writer actually believes it too. He takes the stand that we should permit the government, unilaterally, to tell us how things are to be. He appears to believe that we provoke them; we have GALL if we speak up and assert our own ideas. Dissent is now GALL.
This is totalitarian at its strongest. Turn everything over to those who govern you and do not have the GALL to give them input. Do not think for yourself. Let the “governing” powers control everything and do not have the Gall to dissent. It is truly terrifying that an American citizen could even think such a thing.
The entire purpose of the founding of this amazing and wonderful country and the overthrow of the rule of George III was that the governed wanted to manage their own lives without dictatorship and any unnecessary controls.
We in America have a destiny to lead the world in this new concept of life. Our entire mission was to live without being controlled by our government. I have written on this time and again. Is anyone out there? That is our mission. Now that is called GALL.
When we do not appreciate a thing, we lose it. It is a Law of Nature. We are losing freedom.
Now we have the statement, published, that to dissent takes GALL. I will not even humiliate the writer by citing his name. He still has a life to lead and in time, he may learn. Yet, he is so far out of line that he does not even begin to understand what democracy is about.
His line of thinking is a reversion to the days of feudal lords and tenant, sharecropper farmers.
“Tip ye’ hat to the young Lord of the Manor and do not dare to speak unless spoken unto. “
This is where we have come in America. Young people who think we express Gall if we honestly and deeply show dissent about controls about to be thrust upon us.
When and how did the American citizens develop the idea that the governing powers tell us what to do, how to live and how much to give to them of our income and that we show GALL if we dissent?
This mind-set is the result of government schools. People who have been “educated” into total conformity are the outcome of indoctrination so clever that it is invisible. Government schools have succeeded beyond their most ambitious hopes.
Zombies that feed money into the powers that they want to “govern” them are the result. Disgusting.
Now to be free and express our choices is defined as gall, as a provocative action, if we even indicate how we want to live.
Soldiers of WWII were so identified with the concept of a free country that they gave up every thing they loved, every comfort, and every hope for a future life, to assure that humanity would be secure, happy and free. Young men lived in mud, danger, filth and then gave their just- beginning lives so that we could be free from tyranny. They held their best friends in their arms and watched them die a painful death. They did that for humanity-at-large. My uncle died in Germany in WWII, my father served also. They did it because it was the right thing to do. My Grandfather, too old to serve in the military donated his engineering skills to assure the public safety from falling bombs. They did it for us. They did it for the freedom to speak up and not to be ruled by governing powers that seized control.
Now we have a generation that thinks it is “galling” to tell the government how we want to be ruled. I cannot stay silent. Gall. Gall. !!!
Most people in our time show that they want ease and security without having to exert the effort to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to exert themselves in any way. They are going to pay very dearly. The cost of turning over one’s life to another cannot be reckoned, as it is so great.
No one can turn this thing around with the mind- set of such people who think we have GALL if we speak out. It is done.
America and then the world are going to get what they deserve and it truly breaks my heart. We have failed in our destiny to show the world that humanity can live without being controlled, manipulated and enslaved. We have failed miserably.
We are at very low point in American history and therefore in the history of the entire world. The battle lines are clear. Be a zombie or be an awake, alive and courageous person. Choose.
Gall, to indicate our choices to those who we pay to represent us. This questioning is seen as provocative! Gall.
Enough said. Gall
