"Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence towards Almighty God...What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."
-- John Adams
i love the simplicity of this
i can even imagine it
of course, in observance of Adams' overarching message, it's society's steady keeping to these very ideals -- in dutiful yet grateful obedience from one to another -- that gives us humans such a challenge.
Human nature and free will -- both God divined -- makes it so.
There is a dark side in all of us. And when one dark side communes with another dark side, it is entirely conceivable for entire secret society's -- that which revels in nefarious motives and destructive forces -- to manifest, and even grow unrestrained, under the cover of darkness.
It seems America, large and small, is being inundated with acts of lawlessness; evidence of corruption seen all the way up to the Department of Justice, and even the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
And it seems to be galvanized with the same, flagrant, commonality: hatred for Trump
Funny, considering The Left's favorite campaign message, "Love Trumps Hate;" it complies to all, except the for the crowd that just hates Trump (and the conservatives who voted for him).
Is it hatred to ask that America protect it's borders, as well as enforce the immigration law already on the books? Is it?
Is it hatred to ask of American companies, and Americans, to put America first, to prioritize what is best for the citizens of this country before the needs of any other nation, or people? Is it?
Is it hatred to seek ways to protect and secure the safe-keeping of America and Americans, by making sure all immigrants, all visitors, have America's best interests at heart? Is it?
Is it hatred to designate Jerusalem the capital of Israel -- with precedence distinguished by every president since 1995? Is it?
Is it hatred to stand up for the unborn? Seriously, is that hatred?
The thing is, America -- individually and collectively -- is continuously at a time for choosing, generation after generation, ever since 1776.
Truth is, like him or not, Trump is irrelevant in some respects.
We, as citizens, are always at liberty to decide who we are and what we stand for, for better or worse, secret societies and all; returning to the words of John Adams, law and order and good conduct and justice, leading us in peace and love, is perhaps only one good law book away.
Individually, it is our duty, by design, to pay attention to what and how we contribute to the whole, for the benefit of the whole.
This is precisely what will show us the way, revealing a Eutopia of a higher realm; and as individuals we must choose.
Make it a Good Day, G
