The last three days of “news” on TV has sickened me—literally! Our nation is in serious trouble and yet some act as though “Happy days are here again”. The blind are leading the blind and everyone is about to end up in the ditch. If those who see the danger fail to speak out there is no hope of being spared. I read a lot of articles and sometimes the comments about an article are better than the author’s work. Here’s an example. This was the comment posted by a man I don’t know following an article that I don’t even remember. It speaks volumes about where we are today:
Marcus Tullius Cicero regarding the danger of internal subversion. In a speech to the Roman Senate, as recorded by Sallust, Cicero said:
“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious.But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.”— Think about it!
Thinking we are safe when we’re not is the worst possible state to be in—it is the calm before the storm. And the enemy says,”Sleep on. All is well”.
