We Are All Enlisted!
Dear Friend of Liberty…
Today is not just another day! In the United States, this is our day of Memorial and we remember those who have given their lives in the service of our nation –having done so willingly and dutifully. It is fitting to remember those who have shed their blood – including those who have done so and yet lived, who have left behind parts of their bodies or their psyches on the battlefield and yet need now to be served and remembered. To those who have worn the uniform bearing the American flag – Thank you!
We thank you unequivocally, whether or not those who sent you were right or wrong – we are yet, in your debt. We thank your families and lament with them over their loss and sacrifice. which is ours as well.
Now, we can’t but ask, what have we learned from our experience with war that is relevant to us – right now? There is a popular quote that goes something like this,
“The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.”
This quote, attributed to German philosopher, Georg Hagel, is clearer and more accurate from his own words:
»Was die Erfahrung aber und dieGeschichte lehren, ist dieses, daß Völker und Regierungen niemals etwas aus derGeschichte gelernt und nach Lehren, die aus derselben zu ziehen gewesen wären, gehandelt haben.«
...or translated rather:
“What experience and history teach is this — that nations and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted upon any lessons they might have drawn from it.”
It’s really a beautiful day in Western Missouri right now. The sun bathes our community in warmth and light. The multitudinous chorus of the feathered tribe is pleasant to the ear, and there is a general calm here masking a stark reality that there is a war going on right here and now in America.
For most of us, what we haven’t learned from history is what’s been hidden from us, that those who profit from war often fund both sides, that those who profit from bloodshed have an insatiable appetite for wealth and power and that a disarmed people, like the Jews in Nazi Germany, Armenians of Turkey and the Chinese during the rise of communism in China and more – are defenseless from tyranny.
While the United States has about 750 military bases in 80 countries around the world populated by nearly 170,000 service members; we also have an undefended southern border.
In 1999, two Chinese Colonels wrote a book, called Unrestricted Warfare: China’s Master Plan to Destroy America, and it appears that that warfare is working according to plan.
So, where is this conversation going? As our government has deployed our sons and daughters, fathers, brothers, sisters and mothers all over the world supporting “democracy(?)” …it looks like We the People, you and I, will need to be the veterans of the war to reclaim the Republic, right here in the homeland. Hence, “We are all enlisted!”
There needs to be a restoration of Liberty, a cleansing of the inner vessel so to speak, and the powers that be are obviously not going to deploy the military, the resources nor the funding necessary to restore Liberty in America. It’s up to We the People and the time is NOW or NEVER!
Here’s the invitation… come forward and raise the Title of Liberty! Stand up for the Constitution which is being attacked on every front. It is yet the one thing that stands in the way of complete tyranny in America and the enemies of Liberty know this are united against it. Therefore, you and I must unite on the Constitution. You cannot delegate your individual role in the cause of Liberty, for whether it is great or small, it is needed now. It may be an honor for some of us to shed our blood – or the lamentation for all of us to bow in the certain subjugation that follows our current trajectory.
As we thank our veterans of the past, maybe our veterans of today will thank us when we can return them home to a Republic Reclaimed!
