The Darkening of the World
My thoughts on where we are headed...
This is going to be a different post than what I normally write about but I have felt compelled to write this for a while and so I decided to write my thoughts out, for better or worse. I hate politics but I have always payed attention to world events and history ever since I can remember. Unfortunately, politics influences world events and has been a part of history so I have to study the subject on some level, but I always do my best to understand politics in a objective way so that I can understand the truth within my limited ability. This leads me to have differing points of view from most and because of that, I don't write much about politics and I try to stay out of those discussions. I am more interested in working to make things better than having a political argument that does nothing more than divide people. This divide is orchestrated and fueled by those who are interested in the collapse of this once great nation and I believe that we can agree that a day of reckoning is coming.
To answer the question that may be in your mind at the moment; “what does he believe?” I will give a very short answer… There are two nations that want the US to fall and that have the ability to make that happen. Russia and China. Russia may not have a Communist form of government but the people that lead Russia are all from the soviet ways of thinking and doing business. That didn’t die out in 1991 like we were all led to believe. Both Russia and China are our enemies and both have been working for a very long time to undermine the foundation of this once great nation. But to be a little more focused, the Communist philosophies and ideologies of Marxism, Leninism, and Maoism have infiltrated and corrupted every one of our institutions, from the education system to government to our Churches. Democrats love the Communist way of governing and Republicans like making money from doing business with the Communists and the American society, indeed the world really, gets screwed in the process. These philosophies are a cancer that will consume the entire nation and there is nothing that can be done about it until the nation collapses. There is a fight coming and that is just the way it is. The United States as founded is no longer and will be something different after all is said and done, if it even exists at all.
The main issue with these philosophies is that average people believe them without question but the people at the very top of the Communist food chain know that they are false. Karl Marx is quoted as saying that he was “no Marxist”. Lenin called his followers “useful idiots”. Mao slaughtered many of his followers after his social revolution because the loyalist will be the first to revolt when they see the true face of Communism. The people that are at the very top are often times psychopaths that just want to make the world burn. Stalin killed an estimated 20 million people. Mao killed an estimated 40-100 million people. Pol Pot killed 2 million. These are the champions of the Communist system of government and their way of thinking has been imported into this country since the 1920’s and are now in control of every lever of power that this nation has. I’m sure we could throw Hitler in with this bunch but I haven’t read enough about the Nazi political theory to be able to decide if it was a fascist system or a socialist system, even though Hitler was a totalitarian. I believe in freedom and liberty and there will be no freedom or liberty where we are headed.
If you feel the need at this point to reply with a comment that starts with “all we need to do is…” or “ if we would just…” or “those (enter your favorite political party or favorite race to hate on in this space) are the problem and we need them to die or just go away”, then keep your comment to yourself. Half of the country disagrees with you, doesn’t matter what you or I believe. A house divided amongst itself cannot stand and we are divided in every way possible, and this has been by design.
Ultimately, all of this is my opinion but history shows the truth and since people don’t want to consider the past, we are doomed to repeat those events. We live in a time of mass cognitive dissonance where people refuse to admit what is going on around them because admission of the truth would wreck what they believe to be true. With the election of Barack Obama, the Communist take over of our government was almost complete. Trump messed that up but with the stealing of the last presidential election, the take over is now complete. It is doubtful that there will even be another liberty/freedom minded president and if there is then it will be some lackluster, compliant, and watered down version of a republican or put another way, it will be the same type of people that we always seem to get into office. Basically a Mitt Romney type of clown. Don’t read this as an endorsement of Trump. We cannot vote ourselves out of this problem. This is something that we will have to walk through and endure.
I do not offer this point of view as debate or argument, but merely point of view. At this point, I am not interested in debate or argument, not because I am afraid to have my ideas challenged but because argument and debate are a waste of time and I have other projects to work on. I don’t get my information from the
current propaganda organizations news media, social media, or memes but from reading people who are far more knowledgeable than I am. My purpose here is to sound the alarm, it is up to you whether or not you are willing to hear it and respond.
But… how should we respond? Certainly not with violence and not in anger, but just as an accepting that this is the way of the world and has been ever since people have been around. This isn’t something that you can prep your way out of. It isn’t something that you can just wish would go away. Ultimately, the way out of this is through faith in God and through community. I admit that faith in God is the hardest part, at least for me it is anyway, but it is crucial,. I am learning that more and more as time goes on. The second part is through community. We need to be in a group of people that love us and who we love in return. That community will have people that are farmers, health care professionals, protectors, builders/fixers, and leaders with the heart of a servant and that community may have people that look different than you. Character of heart is what matters here, not appearance. We must have this in our small piece of the world in order to get through in this coming turbulent future because we will have to depend on one another.
One other consideration is supporting growing parallel economies where people support, buy, and sell to others with like minds and goals instead of doing business with companies and businesses who are antithetical to our culture.
Most importantly, we should start doing more reading and learning. Subscribing to the Trinity Forge substack page is a good start… just sayin’. Whether online or actual books, start reading more. Put down the social media. Put down the fantasy sports ball. Quite watching those stupid reaction videos of people watching videos on Youtube. I mean… how did we get to a point where watching videos of people watching videos is actually a thing?
Pick up a book that pushes and challenges your understanding of the world. Develop some useful skills that you’ve always wanted to develop. Now is the time to be learning and growing, not sitting around getting caught up in conspiracy theories and false narratives. Get to reading, learning, and doing the hard things.
That has been my main reason for wanting to continue Trinity Forge and for writing what I write. I see my role in all of this as a builder/maker/fixer/tradesman. But more importantly, I want to move into training and teaching. It is what I have built my life around and it is what I have spent the most of life doing. I want to help create more builders, makers, fixers, and tradesmen. We need more people that want to actually build things and work with their hands. It is what I know and feel that God has programmed me to do. Moving forward, Trinity Forge will go back to work in metal working as well as continuing to write about machinery, history, and metal working, with the possibility of moving into home schooling curriculums that center around metal working and industrial arts and history.
This has been something that I have felt compelled to write about for a while but couldn’t make myself write. I think that about does it for my little rant. I’ll get off the soap box for now. Thanks for reading my musings. If you like what I write then please consider subscribing and sharing. Please feel free to leave a comment if you want, or don’t… whatever. I hope that you have a blessed day.
