Arnold Toynbee said the following: “The release of initiative and enterprise made possible by self-government ultimately generates disintegrating forces from within. Again and again, after freedom brings opportunity and some degree of plenty, the competent become selfish, luxury-loving and complacent; the incompetent and unfortunate grow envious and covetous; and all three groups turn aside from the hard road of freedom to worship the golden calf of economic security. The historical cycle seems to be: from bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependency; and from dependency back to bondage once more.”
I say we have been back in the bondage stage for quite some time, living under the ruthless dictates of a power mad dictator, put in place and supported by greedy selfish masters of commerce bent on insuring their continued control and overwhelming need to ever amass more wealth for themselves.
Can any of you truthfully still be denying this? If so talk to a few of the over 12,000,000,000(yes that’s millions) Native Americans that were here before Columbus of how a Democratic Republic takes care of it’s people. Opps, I guess you better hurry for there are under 56,000 left.
I believe it’s well past time to end all this and join together across the world, putting the lies of the various governments behind us, focusing as one to truly re-build this world as one focused on peace and spiritual growth, with all life honored, A true future as never known in the past…
