Double Standard

     "Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he." - Proverbs 29:18

     "The way to crush the bourgeoisie [middle class] is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation." - Vladimir Lenin

     To note, I've been accurately accused of being somewhat cynical, so I warn you this post is a bit depressing, but I promise to cheer things up around here with slow haste.
 
     One reason it is so difficult and rare for addicts in America to get better is that we are a culture in decline. What was once pure fantasy is fast becoming a sort of real-life Orwellian nightmare. All empires peak and become deluded by their own power. Like ancient Rome, our hegemonic ambitions and obsessions have led us to engage in unprecedented currency debasement, deficit spending and debt accumulation, as we now borrow all of our so-called prosperity - bailouts, wars, stimulus, entitlements, social programs and government profligacy - out of the future, and more importantly, from our children who we are enslaving with a lifetime of debt servitude and a lower standard of living. Sorry, but that is a fact. Everyone screaming at each other about all the stuff they rightly deserve, well guess what... that stuff will be paid for by the labor of your children.

     At any rate, normal people don't need to exemplify moral integrity and become a pillar of virtue to stay sober, whereas addicts or alcoholics do. Sure the world would be a better place if we all lived by spiritual principles and forwent some of the elitism and stupidity to show some deference to our Lord. But the point is that normal people don't need to live morally to stay sober. Addicts do. Normal people can stay sober because they're not insane. Addicts are. Addicts, fortunately for their moms and for the rest of the world, MUST live morally in order to stay sane and sober.

     The self-delusion of drug addicts and alcoholics mirrors that of government, being convinced they should do whatever they want, even if it comes at the expense of everybody else. Both engage in Einstein's version of insanity - doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results.

    Today there is a war raging on God and spiritual principles, as the powers that be dumb down education at all levels and promote moral relativity and Godlessness. If the potus and the so-called leaders of our country engage in pathological lying and deception as if their lives depended on it, then addicts, like the rest of us, will also be infected with this degenerate philosophy of moral relativity and the idea that it's no big deal to lie and deceive and get jammed whenever we damn well please.

     Below is a must-watch Bill Moyers segment with Charles Lewis, as well as what I'm assuming is a must-read. I haven't read it yet, but will do so as soon as it comes in. And for more elaboration on our current situation, see Proverbless America on the other blog.

  1. Looks like someone has been doing their research. I appreciate that fact! Love that you know the TRUTH...not just spiritually, but in regards to the realities of this physical realm as well. God has done tremendous work in you and look how He's able to use you to speak TRUTH into other's lives as well. We are surely in the last days...darkness is growing darker and the light is getting lighter. God said he would bring all things to light and the enemy's lies, deceit and hidden agendas are being revealed. Thanks for all you do brother! Keep it up...you truly are in the Army of God!!!
