The difference between our grandparents generation – The Greatest Generation who fought off tyranny abroad and OUR generation which must fight off tyranny ON OUR SHORES is our grandparents had the draft and our country was led by individuals, who while progressive, were unwilling to see evil triumph.
Our generation will not face a draft. We will not be REQUIRED to serve. We must individually recognize that evil is triumphing within our borders, and WE MUST INDIVIDUALLY decide, will we stand up and do something, or will we remain silent?
Is our heritage, our values and our way of life so important that we will decide OURSELVES to do everything we can to prevent its demise. Or are we so complacent, so in love with our things, our personal time, our vacations, our sports “brackets”, and watching “Desperate Housewives” and reality T.V. that we will not invest the time required to turn the evil tide in our society.
“Silence in the face of evil is evil. God will not hold us blameless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
The good news is: history shows it only takes 20 % of society to chart a new course. The radicals which control our academia, our media and our government at all levels are a far smaller minority. It only takes 20 % - “an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men” who will turn the tide of history.
Where will we as individuals sit, with the 5 – 10 % of the population who are radical leftists, will we help grow the freedom lovers who will invest their time and resources for the cause of liberty to 20 %, or will we stay with the 70 – 75 % who remain silent?
There will be no draft. The choice is yours. Kind of like God’s Grace – he provides us a choice – and does not mandate the Liberty of His Grace. Also, kind of like God’s Grace – there will be consequences for our action or inaction.
