Who the hell is in control of this world?

I am not one for organized religions based on human-constructed ideologies professed to be handed down by a supreme being.

I have faith, yes but it is not to one found in any building or any words created in the minds of humans.  It is a faith instilled in me over my lifetime by powers greater than me who allowed, perhaps even planned challenges I had to overcome to teach me the lessons I needed to learn.

“Why did “God” let this happen?”

Ever heard that phrase? I have, thousands of times. The answer I have most often heard to that question is, “God” works in mysterious ways” which is a cop-out to me.

There is nothing mysterious about God; there are only truth and logic both of which escape most of us.

Since his inauguration on January 20, 2017, a relentlessly vilified President Trump has been working very hard to rehabilitate America, yet there are those who still cry out, “God, why did you let this happen?”

My opinion is “God” did not let it happen. “God” made it happen.

Neither Russia nor any other foreign power interfered with our election – “God” did.

I believe that “God” decided it was time to remove the blinders from those who proclaimed the “liberty” of America and show them the reality. “God” chose to expose the hypocrisy of the elitists and the damage they have done.

Perhaps “God” felt it was time to demonstrate the true meanings of love, faith, and equality of all peoples in a world beset by ignorance and fear.

Whatever the reason, if people truly believe in “God” they must always remember, “God” is in control.

 

Americans All!

 

Please help me, my friend,

Have we come to an end?

Has reason deserted our land?

 

Many fight for the right,

Guaranteed by our laws,

Then deny it to others out of hand.

 

Please join me, my friend,

Our rights to defend,

Battling this vile new disease.

 

For Americans, are we all,

Unwilling to face downfall,

Our freedom not built on our knees.

 

Make America Strong Again.

In this age of denial,

Sanity itself is on trial.

 

Long ruled by deceit,

Moral bonds corrupted by conceit.

 

Our days pursuing right,

Dark nights in woeful plight.

 

Age of logic lost,

Defied reason, mortal the cost.

 

New age soon to begin,

For some cause of chagrin.

 

But wisdom cries out,

Challenge your doubt.

 

New bridges to be spanned.

For united we will stand.

 

Resist all the hate,

Pass thru the new gate.

 

America will be stronger.

Identity in a Global World?

Currently, the United Nations is aggressively promoting the idea of a “Global Community.” The concept is that through trade agreements, treaties and other avenues yet to be put forth, all the Earth’s nations will join as one.  The initial major stage of this agenda began with replacing the monetary systems of some countries with a standard one, the Euro. This was a giant step balked at by numerous countries who felt the loss of their currency might cause a loss of identity.

The next major stage was the forced acceptance of immigrants and refugees from Middle Eastern countries into Australia, New Zealand, and the countries of Europe and North America. This was all done without strong, unified guidelines, security and rules of assimilation and has been a total disaster. Why is it a disaster – in a word, identity?

So what is an identity? Beginning with our DNA, it is unique to each of us. It can be used to identify each of us by ethnicity, heritage, diet, health, culture and numerous other unique features make each of us unique – they are our identity.

The powers controlling the United Nations and the European Union are promoting the Globalization agenda which is robbing both the immigrants/refugees and the people of the host countries of their identity. If allowed to continue, there will be no United Globalized World; there will only be anarchy, resentment, and envy the remnants of lost identities.

 

The next stage of Globalization has already begun with the development and designation of “No Go Zones” in non-Muslim cities. Despite what many think, I do not agree these are intentionally established anti-host country areas. I believe they are attempts by refugees and immigrants to have havens where they may maintain their cultural identity. There are areas of potential problems with this such as the inability to assimilate into a new culture v the new culture accepting an alien culture, the radicalization of severe malcontents on both sides of the agenda and conflicts over common things such as proper clothing, foods, school, etc. that must be effectively addressed. The core issue may be that neither side wants to be a clone of the other side, to do so would destroy identities.

 

How do we combat the negative effects of Globalization on personal and cultural identities?

I believe the first step in combating the negative effects is to teach what true cultural diversity is and how it can positively affect all of us. This must begin in the home, where the cultural values are the strongest. Parents must teach their children the values they may gain from exposure to diversity; not just the negative aspects of an alien culture. We must lower some of our cultural shields to understand the cultures of others better, by doing so, we may come to understand and accept that which is alien in our eyes.

 

Can we accomplish this without surrendering to the entire Global Community agenda? I believe it possible once we realize the benefits, and more importantly the losses of the agenda. No one culture must be forced to surrender its identity to meet the demands of the collective and become drones of the Borg.[1]
