Does ranting help anything?

Caution: An angry post meant for The Storage Shed.

It was difficult enough in the twentieth century to identify individual human rights, and what effect each had on ‘others.’ But, in the early part, populations could survive in townships of like-minded locals. When enough became bored with being a part of any productive work, they decided that management of assets was what America needed; and judgment-making and influence would eventually lead them to positions of power. That, in itself, started redistribution of human rights under the name of progress, aka Progressive Thinking.

In a nutshell, now that power has globalized, the whole system is too complex to change one element overnight – except for the real possibility of the whole damn thing collapsing, and we start over.

Think about this – there’s a law for everything. That means there’s a consequence for everything. A person cannot even exist without an assessed tax due and payable by someone, for the land under his feet. He cannot exist, without being categorized by the color of his skin, the way he makes love, and how much tax he pays – at the same time totally restricted on how he earns a respectable living. That tells me, freedom is a myth. We are currently nothing but a commodity, and we are being forced to accept a broken economy because some group of global elites will bloody well decide our worth at any given time according to their agenda.

Every viable and sustaining society on earth has no choice but to have social concerns and responsibilities – unless they (like some countries) are willing to commit mass genocide. In order to be sustainable a greater portion of the population has to be able to maintain a healthy economy.

In Libya yesterday, a Brotherhood representative declared Sharia Law would be the only law of that land. When someone objected to the section that a thief would have his hand amputated as justice, the rep said, ‘Why are you concerned, if you are not a thief.’

At the same time this agenda is going on in the world, America is being emotionally and economically torn apart. So, you tell me, where’s the level playing field? How much equality would you be willing to share between good and evil?

    You say, “Think about this – there’s a law for everything. That means there’s a consequence for everything.”

    I would broaden that and say, “Behavior has consequences.” A country that infantilizes its citizens, promotes parasitism rather than production and promises a utopia where life is fair is well on its way to creating what we have today in the United States – an increasingly fractured society filled with people whose primary emotion is a free-floating resentment of others.

    Even worse, the substitution of the word “democracy” for “republic” in our public discourse is eroding away the very foundations of our political structures. The founders understood there is a thin line between pure democracy and mob rule – and that line is becoming all to visible, in the streets and in Congress.

    (There. How’s that for a rant?)

    Ranting is wonderful. It makes me feel like I am having my view heard. Since my representative is not doing it for me. I think I am finding it harder and harder to find humanity or good in the world. I see it (here) in individuals, but groups always have their own agenda’s. Fighting for peace? makes no sense. Freedom is just a word told to us to keep us in line. We lose our homes, jobs and a way to survive if we are not part of ‘the machine’. Money is our God, without it we are nothing in this land. We are falling without a net. I say stock up and take cover.
    Great Ranting TexasJune!

  3. The Constitution of the United States of America protects its citizens’ right to speak freely – even if, in practice, they are not always allowed to say what they think with impunity. Australia, on the other hand, has no law which protects free speech, although most Australians think that it has and exercise their perceived right to it every day, often vociferously. Words are very powerful and therefore often dangerous, as they can be used for both good and evil. Which is something that we tend to forget.

  4. I think we have to chose the lesser evil and I believe in a globalized world we have to seek to assist other countries as part of NATO. I also believe that once a nation harms its own citizens they lose the right to govern their own nation. The problem is that people do not realize interventions are not something that happen over six months it takes years if not decades to reconstruct a democratic nation in which all people are free and equal.

      I happen to agree. When looking at the fact it takes almost twenty years to raise one human to full maturity, it is reasonable to assume it would take at least as long for a mature population to decide and make the adjustments toward a democracy. Until that decision is a consensus, especially after several hundred years – I don’t see it as possible.

      In the meantime, democratic nations cannot afford to lose the gains for their own population, in which they are heavily invested. Otherwise, they will be weakened without the will or resources to assist anyone else. In my opinion, nation-building in a war zone is futile – although I understand some others believe it to be an investment – albeit, extremely expensive, inefficient and wasteful.

      I appreciate your comments.

    It’s good to have a rant every now and then, I believe it is actually good to get things off your chest so to speak. When you read about different things that are happening all over the world, it does make you wonder sometimes what is going on.

    • Texasjune says:

      Thank you for understanding. I thought it was the best way to diffuse frustration, when I have no defense other than words to express my feelings. Words do not work if no one hears them. Maybe it’s a selfish thing to pass them along, to someone who understands the situation better. Even dogs can bark and bite, and cats can scratch!

    As long as you rant in your blog and not shoot to kill we will be alright. So go ahead and rant, it is actually healthy to do so. But then again, you were right in what you said in your article. In other words – really great article.

    • Texasjune says:

      Not to worry, Randall. I’m a totally non-violent person – just have a loud mouth when I get on the defensive for my country. I hate the disconnect of some manipulating people that play Americans against each other – inferring we’re ignorant and easily distracted by chaos they create to divide and conquer us. Peace!

    I like your thoughts. The Idea that we can somehow compromise between good and evil is just crazy. Freedom is only possible if we have some willingness to stand for what is right. Rather than accepting those who would impose their beliefs of what is right on us.
    All the best!

    • Texasjune says:

      I agree. Most people try to live a good and decent life. When so many see damaging events that make no sense whatsoever, there comes a time they have to speak out. My problem is, I speak too softly until I become angry!
