There are thousands if not millions of bloggers writing about news and conditions this world and our country are laboring under. There are some great well-informed writers, particularly those who contribute to Libertarian Blog web-site.
Out of love for country and Freedom, the underlying theme of my writings is to inform about the meaning of Freedom, and inform about the War of Ideas that this nation has been involved in for quite a long time. The war is Freedom or Bondage. It is real and no in-between, the battle is between those two factions. And every individual in this nation is affected to some degree in this war.
Strangely, I don’t read in other articles the conditions described as a war, but mostly about the politics of the conditions we face. Which in essence is just the effects.
It’s my sincere belief, we must recognize and label the conditions as a war, or we will lose. We must call a spade a spade. Unless we recognize and label as a war, how can we ever expect to win the battle? So long as we keep sugar-coating with political rhetoric, the direction we are headed will not change.
There is a certain criteria to fighting and winning a war, and we can discover what that is by reading what the great military strategists tell us. From Napolean to Marshall, and my favorite, Sun Tzu, in the book by James Clavell, titled “The Art of War.” In it he states: “There are not more than five primary colors, yet in combination they produce more hues than can ever be seen. There are not more than five cardinal tastes – sour, acrid, salt, sweet, bitter— yet combinations of them yield more flavors than can ever be tasted.”
“In battle, however, there are not more than two methods of attack – the direct and the in-direct, yet these two in combination give rise to an endless series of maneuvers. Like moving in a circle – you never come to an end. Who can exhaust the possibilities of their combination?”
The strategies he outlines can be applied to any battle. Even the War of Ideas which we are in the midst of, being won without a shot being fired.
Sun Tzu further states: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
I was only 21 years old, long before I began studying the Philosophy of Freedom, when I discovered how the Battle Plan works, and have used the basic tenets of it numerous times in the battles I have fought. In the book I’m writing, I will detail that discovery, and how it works.
The biggest problem we face today, as we slide like greased lightning into a state of Socialism, is the refusal to recognize, it’s a war of ideas, and unless one recognizes it as war, there is no battle strategy, but like sheep to slaughter. It’s as simple and as stupid, as refusing to recognize it’s raining, and walk into it without an umbrella or raincoat.
The best-dressed army, the best trained, carrying the best guns and ammunition, cannot protect us from ignorance about the reality of what is happening in this country. And the reality is the Principles upon which this nation was founded, have been upstaged and sabotaged and replaced via another system of socialism, bit by bit like dripping water, and now we are wallowing and drowning in it.
Most of those concerned, write and have their attention on the effects of the switcheroo from Freedom and Private property ownership, and the free-enterprise system to a system of socialism. Ignoring the cause. How can we expect anything, but what we now face, by ignoring the cause? And some of the effects the attention is upon is loss of jobs, loss of homes, high gas prices, groceries sky-rocketing, socialized schooling, drug dealing, pseudo medical care, and the list is endless.
We have become a nation in love with the nanny state and entertained by the shenanigans of the political process, hyped up over the up-coming election. The Republican convention, the candidacy speeches of the current president, and all the effects of the demise of this nation, into the abysmal mediocracy of the Socialist system.
Wake up America, and recognize we have been at war for sometime, and losing. The Socialist One Worlders, those who lust for power, are busy 24-7, accomplishing their mission. They are winning and expect to, because they recognize the apathy of the American citizenry, and recognize the signs, which indicate not likely to change in the hearts and minds of the American people.
The American revolution was won by a “Root, hog, or die” mentality, which is absent in today’s thinking, feeling and acting, among the majority. Replaced by apathy. The window of opportunity to change directions, grows shorter each 24 hours. It may already be too late. But never for those of us who believe in Freedom and the Principles upon which this Nation was founded. The question is, are there enough who still value those things, to turn the tide? I don’t know.
