There is not always much hope for Optimism. The JBS has been active for 56 years, Extremely well-financed, well-organized, & with steadfast leadership, & tons of steady contributions, even from major religious organizations. (I have personally known Birch members, & they tried to "recruit" me many years ago. But I knew, the minute they said that "America should not be a Democracy" --- that they were totally telling LIES. And I began studying everything I could find about them.) It was amazing the power & strength they could quickly amass, using secret cell meetings, with secret memberships, They used ordinary patriotic groups and churches, and "duped" them with massive propaganda tactics. They bought radio stations, & wrote millions of pamphlets & magazines which they handed out in doctor's offices, dentist offices, & even on airplanes. (They approached me in a book store). They could be very persuasive; some of their henchmen had previously worked in advertising. After awhile they could "buy" politicians, & their message was actually being preached from the pulpits of many churches. It was a massive effort, with the intended purpose to "brain-wash" the American people, so they would willfully abandon their own benevolent, freedom-loving govt of democracy
(govt of the people, by the people, for the people) -- & instead
, betray Uncle Sam, for the living monster of corruption, greed, fascist control, & an "invented religion
" that taught the OPPOSITE from ideals of Jesus Christ, (Jesus taught LOVE & SHARING the Wealth, & Jesus was Anti-WAR).
-- So if you examine their political platform, you will quickly see, the GOP are ALL About GREED, LYING, & waging MORE WARS all over the PLANET.
So, as usual, the Evil people have a huge advantage. So what can WE do? Just ordinary "true" Christian Americans, with very little money, or not many very powerful positions in society. We don't own radio stations or stock market income. //// So WHAT CAN WE DO? We might have the answer here already.
In college I met a lot of students who were "boot strappers" --- they were "older" military officers who were done with their required duty, and they were at the stage to leave the military for civilian life. Anyway, most of them belonged to the "Pen & Sword" Society. For some reason, it took me a while to figure out what that meant. Then one day, it suddenly struck me,,, it means ---- "THE PEN IS MIGHTIER than the SWORD." (A good phrase to remember).
The NEXT thing I remembered was a story in the BIBLE. Way back in Biblical times, there was a village being terrorized by a GIANT, who with his incredible strength, he could destroy the entire village & everyone in it. The people were greatly afraid, so they approached the bravest, youngest man in the village, & asked him (Samson) if there was anything HE could do? Samson stood in front of the Giant, & tried to determine how powerful he was, & how would be the best way to approach him. After watching the Giant (Goliath) for awhile, Samson got out his trusty slingshot, & suddenly launched a hefty stone in the direction of the Giant's head. BULLS-EYE . The Giant fell dead, and the village was saved. ---- And another urban Legend was born.
If you are ever faced with an unbeatable Foe -- or a serious gang problem, -- always carry your trusty slingshot (it doesn't have to be registered). & bring along a nice supply of rocks. // And, in the WORST CASE SCENARIO --- always carry your "Sharpie" PEN, which is supposed to be mightier than the sword.
