Yesterday I heard it said that we have been in WWIII since the beginning of the Korean War in 1950. I felt relief. Like when you suspect your spouse has been cheating and you confront them and they continually deny it and then you finally find irrefutable proof. It’s awful to face reality but there is a sense of relief. And a realization that for better or worse, you won’t ever be as easily manipulated in the same ways again.
What’s the difference between fearing WWI will begin and accepting that we are already in the middle of it? The disappearance of a false sense of security. Security we never had in the first place. The same amount of security that signing a marriage certificate gives you. If their heart isn’t for you then the paper means nothing.
So what to do now when you realize your spouse has been running around for years and you are the last to know? We are the abused constituents but in many ways we have enabled this mess. We set the standard by the behavior we accept. Good luck blaming it all on them and forcing them to change. We have to take responsibility for our part in getting to this place. We wanted to sit back and let Big Government take care of us. Well here we are.
This is not going to be easy. This is going to take a lot of hard work and probably will be the fight of and for our lives. Follow the money trail to identify the real enemies. Who benefits from us being at war with each other? Don’t be the stupid chicks fighting over a cheating man. Think different. Start holding yourself accountable first and then hold them accountable.
I don’t know how, but I think I know Who can lead us, if not out, then definitely through this valley of death.
