APPRECIATING THE AMERICAN SOCIETY

The United States of America has become a beacon of hope for every country in the world but now that it is on the brink of its own collapse, not one single country is coming to its rescue!

It is undeniable, that Americans are the most accommodating and generous people in all of the world. They have been raised to help those who are less fortunate than themselves. But how has that generosity been repaid? In a country where not only, horizontal mobility is available, but upward mobility can be achieved with hard work and preservation, no matter the background of the individual, the American way of life has been bashed and the people that made it all possible, is browbeaten. Americans are accused of being plunders and racist and yet many people are breaking into this country to enjoy the wealth and prosperity that they have not contributed towards. It is stated that the American society was built on immigration. Yet, no one stops to analyze what conditions the first immigrants met and that maybe, just maybe, they came and found a barren land and had to start from scratch to build a civilization that we all take for granted right now.

THE POPULATION & ETHOS OF AMERICA

The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic which has a system of ‘consent by the governed’ made up of a majority of white European people and a minority of other groups consisting of Asian, Spanish, Indian and black people.

White Americans constitutes the majority of the people in the United States. According to the 2020 census, 71%, or 235,411,507 people, were a combination, or 61.6%, or 204,277,273 people, were White alone. The U.S. Hispanic population reached 62.1 million in 2020, an increase of 23% over the previous decade. The Black population of the United States is stagnant. In 2022, there were an estimated 47.9 million people who self-identified as black American-born, making up 11.4% of the country’s population. As of 2016, about 13 million — about 4% of the total U.S. population — have Caribbean ancestry, consisting of people of Indian descent and black persons. In 2020, the Asian population reported approximately 19.9 million or 7.2% of the total population.

The ethos of white European is about taking risks. This has allowed them to create institutions that elevated them above all other ethnic groups. The ability to do research in all kinds of conditions and climates, to explore seas and lands in order to present the data needed to build institutions, has elevated white people over other ethnic groups of people. The concerted effort to tear down instead of add value is regulated to a tiny sub-sect of people who are afraid to take the chance to be pioneers. This is not the case with white men who had a vision of a life beyond being nomads, living in tents, huts, pulling water from wells and wearing animals’ skins. It was the Dutch, then the French, next Spain and finally Britain which took the risk to explore the world and have established a civilization that is second-to-none in these great United States of America.

THE GENRES OF WORK IN AMERICA

We are placed on this earth to work. The Apostle Paul stated, “If a man does not work, he should not eat.” But in a country with great wealth and prosperity, many people seem comfortable to live on welfare programs, public assistance and entitlement benefits and yet, complain about the people who have opened work opportunities in all kinds of genres. In many countries, there are what is generally known as traditional jobs. Sports and entertainment are a pastime and is limited to a singing career at best. In the United States, a person has the opportunity to make a lucrative career in unconventional work in the arts and sports. If a person can think of a need and fill it, they can build a business that will bring them great success and prosperity. There is no limitation on the imagination. This freedom of market system has allowed capitalism to pull many people out of poverty.

But where did this mindset originate from? Was it Africans who developed and supported the efforts of people who had the idea to invent, innovate and produce products and services of every kind? Was it Latinos who decided that an individual could excel in acting, playing a game, writing a book or painting a picture? Was it Asians who encourage their fellowman to start a small business and then grow it into a corporation, or to go a step further and expand that model in several different locations or to take it to the next level of building franchises? Was it West Indians who came up with the means of transacting so as to mitigate fair dealings between the owner and customer, the owner and the supplier and the owner and the bank. The ability to risk delving into every category of work and deliberating a cost that meets the skill is to be credited to white European men. Love them or hate them, no other third world country can boast of what this first-world nation of America has perfected.

MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD

We are wonderfully made. The scripture verse in Psalm 139:14 reads: “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful; I know that full well.”  In a fallen world, there will be people who understand the importance of taking care of this world and their bodies and others will not pay as much attention.

However, this verse is a reminder that we are all unique and special in our own way. It is a testament to the beauty of God’s creation and the importance of self-love and the ability to love the people and things that are around us. For example, many people appreciate the falling of the snow and the rain showers. They know that the rain and sun fulfil a purpose. These elements are not there to disrupt our day, but to help the foliage, the animals, birds and human beings as a whole. As children, we enjoyed the rain drops on the roof and the snow falling on the ground. They were extensions of play. Somehow as adults, they have become impediments to getting from one place to another.

The indifference to the world around us, has seemingly been carried over to the care of our bodies. The lack of exercise, attention to diet and proper grooming habits is leading to health issues where pharmaceuticals and medication is taking the place of proper rest and appreciation for what our body-machinery. Instead of preventing health issues, there is more of an after-thought towards maintenance as work and day to day activities are the excuse for why the body is breaking down.

Is it possible to return to being like little children, even as adults. Is it possible, to stop and smell the roses? Yes, if we make a conscious effort to do so. When I lived in the Caribbean, the beach was a minute walk away, the sun, moon and stars were visible each day. I took it for granted. I have to intentionally look up to see the moon. Now that I am in this big city, I have to commute to go to the beach. I am learning to find the tradeoffs in this city. Like a child, I am forced to be curious about my surroundings again and to enjoy new ways of amusing myself. And I am finding that it is not as hard to take care of myself, and to find pleasure in the earth I live on. How about you?

RECLAIMING LANGUAGE

Language is very important to any society. It is how people communicate information, discuss problems, debate ideas and gather data. There are verbal and non-verbal cues. The use of words, structured in a particular way is how we engage in conversation with others. In English, we use the letters of the alphabet to construct words, string sentences together and create paragraphs. Words are used to define people, places and things. We call the name of a person or an object a noun. We explain an action with a verb. We combine two phrases with a conjunction. We provide more information about a noun with an adjective and we describe a verb, an adjective, another adverb, or even a whole sentence by using an adverb. There are many words where the meaning has to be looked up in a dictionary. Non-verbal cues can sometimes be easily interpreted, as with a smile, the wagging tail of a dog or a stern look.

These agreed upon verbal and non-verbal cues have been accepted for centuries. It is what makes for a civil society. Navigating life on a daily basis can be challenging and so it is important for some things to remain constant. A growing child, a teenager and an adult come into many different systems each day and every one of them have their own organizational structure. Courtesies like good morning, goodbye and thank you are stables in a functioning society. The way we function at home, operate in school and navigate at work, calls for the individuals to be respectful of their parents & family, teachers & peers, employers & coworkers. Paying attention to time, space and roles in each of these areas elicit behaviors that convey respect that will be given back.

The rules of engagement have been very clearly defined and acceptable until a few short years ago. Now every norm, and proper use of language and cues are seemingly being incrementally dismantled where there are no rules and people are offended if speech or actions are not politically correct. The people who are most offended, have never explained in any tangible way what the term of engagement are, and yet everyone is forced to comply without push back or be cancelled forever.

THE FORCES OF GOOD & EVIL

There are two forces in this life—the force of good and the force of evil. Christians have an explanation for why things go wrong and offer God as the Creator to realign our lives. Just as we go to history books to learn about prominent figures, “believers in Jesus Christ” point to the Bible to understand how this world came into being.  After creating the world, God created the first man called Adam and the first woman called Eve. Before God rested from all of his work, he looked at all he created, and called it good. We have a starting point for how evil was unleashed as well. Continuing in the scriptures, we read of the angel Lucifer seeking to exalt himself against the God who created him because he was envious of the Trinity and his position as the angel of music. Since then, human beings have been entangled between the battle of good and evil.

God was upfront with Adam and Eve. His instructions were very simple and spoken with love. Here is the world I created for you to enjoy, partake of every fruit, except the tree of knowledge of good and evil, name the animals and I will meet with you in the cool of the day. The man and the woman lived with the animals and there was no fear for their safety. They were naked and had no awareness, just as the animals had no covering for their naked bodies.

However, when the devil (who was once Lucifer), came to Eve, he hid his intentions. He hid in the body of a serpent. He obfuscated the truth. He preyed on the woman’s curiosity. What was the reason for the devil disguising himself and not revealing his scheme? The devil has severed ties with God and there is no restoration for him. His intention is to bring everyone down with him as he did the other angels.

So how do we measure good and evil? Both of these actions are concepts. They can be judged by the body’s response to either one. The emotion that stems from doing good is a feeling that denotes well-being. The emotion that comes from bad is the opposite feeling of distress. Relief and pain are opposing factors. Good is outright, it shares, it explains, it brings evidence, it answers questions, it invites criticism and suggestions, it pivots if needed and it grows. Bad hides, it lies, it deflects, it shames, it has no answer or explanation, it doubles down, it is hard to change, it shrivels up and dies.

INSTITUTIONS MADE AMERICA GREAT

There are eight things that makes countries weak: (1) Having A Small Armed Force, (2) Being A Geographically Small Country, (3) Having A Small Population, (4) Having A Weak Government, (5) A Small Economy, (6) Having Bad Infrastructure, (7) Having A Divided Population and (8) Bad Geography Location. On the other hand, the opposite is true for strong countries with a large landmass, have large population, is strategically situated, resulting in a better economy.

The difference between what constitutes as a weak country and why another is strong is the establishing of institutions.  An Institution is a society or organization founded for religious, educational, social, or business purposes. It can be an established official organization having a vital role in the life of a country, such as a bank, church, legislature or it can be an established law, practice, or custom.

Institutions are also the formal rules that organize social, political, and economic relations which include the written laws, regulations, legal agreements and contracts which constitutes what is enforced by third parties, while informal institutions are the usually unwritten norms, procedures, conventions, and traditions that are often embedded in culture.

These practices are implicit and drive incentives, norms and behaviors. They determine economic, legal, political, and social rights and opportunities. For nations to prosper, economic and political institutions must work hand in hand to benefit the citizens who participate in the moving of products and delivery of services. When even the common man can have skin in the game, virtuous cycles can be established. Institutions determine the guidelines and requirements for products and services. There is a criterion that is put in place which measures productivity and industry standards.

THE VALUE OF WORK

A simple google search breaks down a society as a group of individuals engaged in persistent social interaction or a large social group that shares the same spatial or social territory. The inhabitants consist of people who live close together and interact with one another. These individuals form the building blocks of social structures. The culture encompasses the shared beliefs, customs, traditions, language, art, and values within a society. It shapes how people perceive the world, how they interact with each other, and express themselves.

In every society, there must be material products, such as tools, technology, architecture, clothing, and art. These artifacts reflect the collective creativity and practical needs of the community. And of course, social institutions are established in the form of family, education, religion, government, and the economy. Social institutions provide stability and guidelines for behavior. All of these social organizations refer to the patterns of relationships and roles within a society within a hierarchy of family structures, social classes, and a division of labor. These arrangements help maintain order and functionality through law enforcement.

Adjustment to these structures have to be taught. The home is the first informal learning institution in which parents teach, guide and assist their growing child to understand what is expected of them. The different levels of schooling from kindergarten to high school and later unto higher education or trade schools is where formal learning takes place with the help of teachers, tutors, professors and principals. In order for a society to meet the needs of its populace, people must become skilled in a multitude of jobs. The day-to-day operational tasks has to be taught by breaking down what is expected through physical and mental labor, in order to maintain the means of production when workers change careers, get sick, retire, get injured or pass away.

The problem is that individuals are not well-informed on how to manage their personal lives and their own finances. There is a disconnect between the value that individuals add to their civilization and the effect on the economy which is the lifeblood of every society.

For instance, there was a time when parents taught children the value of work and earning money. The process must be restored. The little child was given an allowance to spend on trifles. Then they were given an allowance for doing chores. Later, as teenagers, parents allowed them to run errands for family members or help out their neighbors for a small fee. By the time they were adolescents, the father would hire them in his own business or encourage them to do afterschool jobs and summer work if he was himself, employed. Young people graduated to volunteering with non-profits, taking on apprenticeship work or internships long before their thought about entering college or going to a trade school or academy.

Young men learned the value of work, by observing their father go off to work.  Young ladies learned the value of taking care of the home by watching their mother maintain the house. They gained the necessary experience by working inside and outside of the home. They received the foundational skills to budget, spend wisely, save and invest their earnings. And most of all, they obtained people skills by the various customer service skills they engaged in.

FEMINISM AND THE DOWNFALL OF SOCIETY

The feminist movement pontificated that “It is a man’s world” and hollered that most corporate jobs, (and for some reason, not the dirty, hard jobs), were male dominated and women were not getting equal pay for equal work. Along with attacks on men were the shaming of women who wanted to stay at home to take care of their husbands and children. Of course, it did not matter that females are child-bearers, and the miracle of birth is still the most fascinating thing in life. These feminists totally ignored the fact that the only way people come into this world is by a man inseminating a woman where she becomes pregnant with a little human being.  Feminists seem to miss the tiny fact that men still faithfully go out and work and someone has to stay home with the baby. And of course, it does not matter that the females who buy into their rhetoric has become more disgruntled over the years as they ignore their instincts and longings.

The rantings of feminists are very incoherent. The date has not and cannot be substantiated by them. That is simply because they have an agenda to break up what God has designed—that is; the man to be the protector and the provider and the woman to be the homemaker and the nurturer. A child born into a home with a father and a mother is the backbone of every society. From time past and into eternity, females have an innate yearn to have babies. And that yearning makes it impossible to fully compete with men. The only way to do so is to give up that desire to have a child in pursuit of a career and that usually leaves a hole in a woman’s heart and soul, (I have heard it said way too many times by women who don’t have children).

Feminists pretend that women are all alone in this process and accuse all men as being creeps. They take isolated cases and lump them together as a way to push their agenda. There is never any discussion to hold women accountable for their actions, but always to blame men although in many cases, women are consenting partners.

In proper relationships, planning is done where both spouses discuss the point where children will enter the relationship. When done right, the women will not be left to bear the responsibility of raising the child alone. In this planning process, she has a period of time to join the workforce before becoming getting married and later becoming pregnant. There are already provisions in the work environment for women to take time off to deliver her baby and then take additional time to care for the helpless newborn.

It is understood that mothers with little children may have a challenge when asked to do overtime and bosses are sensitive to their dilemma. Once articulated to the employer, women are given grace to take youngsters to school and pick them up, as everyone is aware of the need for underaged children to be supervised. It is the law. Promotions may not be in the cards for her at that time if she cannot stay late or come in on short notice, if she confidently explains that she would have to scramble for a sitter. It is for this reason, that most women apply for jobs that would parallel the time that children are in school so that they could be available to meet the child’s needs.

These feminists know all of this but chose to turn a blind-eye to all the reasons why most jobs are male-dominated. The simple fact is that men accept that they have go out to work unlike women who complain about their lot in life. Feminists ignore the fact that unlike men who are ridiculed if they are not providers, women have options. She can fully choose the option of staying home with the children when she gets married. She can work parttime as the children get older, while her husband provides the finances for the home. And she can return to fulltime employment when the children are grown and compliment his earnings if they both see the need. She can even start a small business while at home. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a woman being in the home and taking care of her family. But the rhetoric has worked and now there is a fractured society. Now we are living in a “woman’s world” where chaos and high emotions drive norms. Is it working? I think not.

CIVIL LIBERTIES & CIVIL RIGHTS

There are generally two sides of every issue. However, the ability to look at subjects from every angle seems nonexistent. The situations in this country that was a subject of contention and thought resolved has come back to the front again and every topic is deemed as highly sensitive and untouchable by some groups of people.  Slavery is one of these nagging issues that people cannot let go of and discrimination against black people and women, (especially by white men), has now risen to a point where they must be excommunicated from society and sent to the annals of hell.  Any opposing view to the contrary is met with victual and endless seething.

Slavery had existed since antiquity and flourished in many parts of the world. Some slaves were captured in war or by piracy. The Israelites were enslaved by the Egyptians, Africans were sold by other Africans, in western Asia, parents sold their children out of poverty into servitude and many in the Balkans became slaves when their land was devasted by Ottoman invasions. Slaves could be Greek, Slav, European, African or Turkish. Many served as domestics, others sweated as galley slaves and many others worked on plantations. This is not just a black problem.

There was segregation in the United States and in 1964, the Civil Rights Act was passed. This landmark civil rights and labor law in the United States outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. With passage of a new Reconstruction Act in March 1867, the era of Radical, or Congressional, Reconstruction, began. Over the next decade, Black Americans voted in huge numbers across the South, electing a total of 22 Black men to serve in the U.S. Congress and two in the Senate.

The feminist movement was and is a social and political campaign for radical and liberal reforms on so-called women’s issues on the pretense of inequality between men and women. The broad-brush paints reproductive rights, domestic violence, maternity leave, equal pay, women’s suffrage, sexual harassment, and sexual violence as issues affecting women. In the United States, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid maternity leave, while paid maternity leave is typically provided voluntarily by employers. Nationally, in 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, women were given the right to vote.

The Holocaust was the genocide of European Jews during World War II. Between 1941 and 1945, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews across German-occupied Europe, around two-thirds of Europe’s Jewish population. The murders were carried out primarily through mass shootings and poison gas in extermination camps, chiefly Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Belzec, Sobibor, and Chełmno in occupied Poland. And yet, Jewish people have emerged as the most stable community all across the world.

The patriarchy is blamed for all or most of the problems in the world. But who is the patriarchy? The definition of patriarchy is a social system in which positions of dominance and privilege are held by men.

But what about the men who went to war and died or lost their limbs, or the men who dug the tunnels for the railroads, or the men who risk their lives to understand how the world around them worked, or the men who spend countless hours on the road in trucking to deliver products, or the men who patrol the streets and put their lives on the line to protect regular citizens, or the men who rush into burning buildings, or the men who risk their finances to build a business, or the men who study for years to be specialist in medicine, or the men who spend countless hours to fly people all over the world, or men who transport people all across the state and country, or the men who are out on ships to protect the homeland, or the men who work the trades that are not so glamorous to ensure that the lights stay on, the phone service is constant and that the water supply never dries up, or the men who walk for miles to ensure that there are no train derailments?

Where is the dominance and privilege when the ship is sinking, and the patriarchy has to stand back as the women and children are the ones who go into lifeboats first? And where is it now, after men of kinds and stripes has used their minds and bodies to give us the best civilization in the world? It is time that the matriarchy appreciates what the patriarchy has done and focus on what our job is all about.

THE PRIVATE SECTOR/PUBLIC SECTOR IN THE U.S.

In the United States of America, there is the private sector and the public sector. The private sector encompasses businesses and enterprises that are privately owned and operated for profit, managed by individuals and in some cases, answers to members of boards and shareholders. Whereas the public sector is the part of the economy that the government operates, funded through the taxes of its citizens. It was set up to provide public goods and services, such as national defense, law enforcement, public education, and infrastructure development. The funds collected by taxes are then allocated to various government budgets. In America, the government is funded by and answers to we the people.

Every working person goes to a job and is either the employer or the employee. Even the individual who works for himself, answers to his customers. There are steps to starting any business. The basic components comprise of identifying a business idea, conducting market research, writing a business plan, choosing both a business structure and a location.  The operator of a business adheres to the rules and regulations for hiring and firing of staff, serving clients and customers and engaging with vendors.

Those seeking employment go through the hiring process of submitting a resume and scheduling an interview. They bring experience and a willingness to add value to the company they desire to work in. It is the means of production in the private sector which ensures that people are able to take care of their basic needs for food, shelter and clothing. Since the goal of the employer is to make a profit and the objective of the employee is to earn a salary, then every transaction is centered around good customer service to meet that threshold. This keeps everyone accountable to their agreement of quality of service.

It was the private sector that created the public sector. After America gained its independence from Britain, the thirteen colonies created the federal government to protect citizens from outside interference in order to provide for citizens’ well-being and happiness. They wanted the assurance to live safely, move freely and operate securely as they went about their daily duties and activities. It is through the process of campaigning that persons wishing to enter public service do so out of concern to strengthen national defense, further promote the education of minors, continue the commitment for justice and adequate law enforcement systems, as well ensuring that the development of broken infrastructures is carried out and maintained.

This desire for the improvement and further advancement of the country’s economy and standing in the world should be the driving force for entering the government. This means that the process is started months or years before the filing deadline. Preferably, the person would have been involved in neighborhood associations and have participated in community work. They would either have made the choice or better yet, been asked to run for public office because of their ties to the community. The work of fixing laws, bridges, roads, rail, buildings, maintaining the streets to be free of litter and attending to the less fortunate and challenged in society, is best done by people who have shown integrity to the cause and loyalty to people who pay taxes and want to see their money spent appropriately as allocated for the benefit of the populus as a whole.

But overtime, politicians have abused their positions and have allowed the American society to fall apart as they send money all across the world and line their pockets along the way. They no longer answer to voters who were under the impression that they were electing these supposed public servants. Politicians openly defy regular citizens and cower to the donors who selected them. The smug look on their faces sends the message that they are untouchable to the voter. But the jig is up.

IS AMERICA BECOMING A COMMUNIST NATION

What does a communist country look like? It has people in the federal government who print massive amounts of money pretending to send aid packages all over the world but are really pocketing half of the funds. It has people at the state and local level, who open their state to illegal aliens under the guise of being a sanctuary city and then giving them all kinds of free stuff and handouts so as to use them as a permanent voting base when they want to cheat. It is a system of government that have used the plight of illiterate people against themselves, by introducing programs like free money to support women who get children from a man, but the man does not have to support those children. It involves erecting buildings and paying people to live freely in apartments without having any obligation that they are responsible for managing their affairs. It translates into paying for free schooling and college but instead of teaching the basic skills of reading, writing and arithmetic to students, they are indoctrinated with everything else that does not convert into them becoming a thinking and independent adult. And finally, communism is about paying people to stay home, instead of working.

What is the reason for maintaining an underclass of people? It gives people in government permanent power at the expense of a group of people in the population who lives in fear of the boogie man. But if you have working brain cells, you, the reader maybe thinking or saying to yourself that someone has to work. I agree. Of course, in every communist society, people are going about their work, but there are those who work as part of the communist regime, while others are clueless to what is actually going on behind the scenes. The work in public offices, like hospitals, schools, shelters, and government agencies provides services to the underclass. These workers are taught that these grown people need help and so the workers think that they are the saviors of people who never got a foot up in life. The result is that workers in these agencies feel a sense of superiority as they swoop in to help the so-called less fortunate and an alliance is formed.

What happens to this kind of communist society overtime? It eventually falls in on itself, because it is unsustainable. Babies become children and children become adults and must be expected to behave like adults who can take care of themselves and are responsible for their actions to themselves and to their fellowman.  It is not the job of government to suckle people from the womb to the tomb, but that is what the city of New York has become. A “Nanny State”. For the most part, too many black Americans have become subdued by accepting welfare and handouts. The flood gates to people from the Thirdworld has exasperated the problem because the assimilation process has been watered down.  The fusion of underclass and second-class has been taken hold.

Are there any ordinary people in a communist society? Yes, there will always be businesses, and those who work in the private sector, but those people are heavily taxed to pay for a section of the population that has never seen the value in work. This is not what the Founders of the United States of America had in mind for people who wanted to join this great experiment. This is excerpt of what the American identity and way of life was intended to be:

“The idea behind America is that people are allowed to come here, live here and be here so as to express themselves in ways that build a legacy not only for the individual but for the treasures of America. The American way is to become great. The principle behind becoming great is that great people make a great nation. The rule is that Americans believe that greatness brings wealth and build resources, and through the individual prosperity, the nation will benefit. The tenet is that no one is restricted, if they have some idea or talent, because it is their wellspring that lays the groundwork for the riches that America, as a whole, relishes”.

It is time to restore the city of New York to its glory as the central figure of America!

FAILING INSTITUTIONS

These articles are for the sole purpose of reflecting and appreciating how great and powerful America is and why this is a fact. No other island or country in the world rivals that of the United States of America and yet, those who live here and come here are oblivious to what these 50 states represent.  In traveling to different states, it boggles the mind how different each state is in terms of its landscape and people. The perception of America that is held before landing on these shores is vastly different than actually being here.

There is still untapped resources and beautiful landscapes that rival pictures, movies, videos or anyone’s perspective. There are many people who still appreciate this land, but far too many who do not understand the sacrifice of those who have gone before. Every landmark, institution and corporation resonate with stories of all these people in some form or fashion.

But there is a disconnect and it is vital that we address where the failure started.  The power of the media in America is stronger than any other place that I visited or lived. In America, the media has been created to keep the population informed, as well as to entertain through television shows. It is where the promotion of products through advertisements is done. The media is also there to provide information regarding health, wealth and general well-being. All of this has resulted in multi-billion-dollar industries. Unheard of anywhere else.

It is the job of journalist is to be abreast of what is going on in the nation, outside in the world and of course what legislations are being passed in government. The job of reporters is to inform regular people of what is going on since ordinary people are busy with their own jobs and do not have the time to listen to everything around them. That puts a heavy burden on journalists to be upstanding. They are supposed to be the eyes and ears of the general public to warn of danger. The newscasts who present daily news on current affairs are expected to have done thorough investigation to ensure that the stories are accurate. The sources must be credible, and interviews must allow for every side of the issue to be represented. Research is done with the goal of getting to the root of what is going on and observations must be as unbiased as possible. Life and death are definitely in the tongue of the newscasters.

But now, journalists spend less time on the ground speaking to people to get to the facts and have now become opiniated. Even the weather forecasters are not seen as being credible. Reporters have become mouth pieces to push propaganda. They either glorify one-side or completely tear-down the other side and many times refuse to give all of the information. The subtleness is now full blown. Legacy media despise the Republican Party, they have disdain for Christians and absolutely hate patriots. They have been exposed as only covering anything democrat and making excuses for anything that democratic politicians do, even though that is not what the job of the media is supposed to be about.

Words are very powerful. That is why editors and producers are there to validate the information before it is aired to the masses. In this election year, many candidates want to get their message out but Townhalls, press conferences and Rallies do not reflect what these candidates stand for and the people who want to vote for them. What is shown or presented shapes the attitudes of people and it is a disservice to this society to see what the main-stream media has become. In a day where social media is not as accessible to older people, and the elderly still depend on television, the media must be called out as being fake and for truly being the enemy of the people.

But thankfully, there is alternative media that is filling the gap and people are using their faculties to decipher what is true from false.

BUILDING BACK BETTER

On this freezing Valentine’s Day, we are winning. Although, last night we went down in defeat in the special election to fill a seat that the stupid Republicans gave up and we watched as 18 Republican senators signed unto a bill to send more money to countries that don’t give a shit about us here in the United States, we are winning. Even though there is an influx of illegal aliens invading our country, filling up our city shelters and burdening every service that they have never paid into, while they are beating up our police officers and giving us the middle finger, we are winning.

It may seem as though we are being held hostage by policies that hurt us who are working and paying taxes. And we may be at the mercy of a government who is deliberately undoing every policy that is in place to ensure our safety and security, but we are winning. It may seem as though we cannot protect ourselves, our family, our fellowmen, our businesses or our city at this time, and that we are living through a nightmare, and we certainly are living through scary times.  But there is still hope and a way out.

But you might ask “how are we winning?” We are winning because we are observing all of this blatant disregard for our civil liberties by politicians that refuse to adhere to their oath of office. We are realizing that the government of New York City is not interested in working on behalf of the residents and citizens, but their own interest.

People all across America, and mainly in states or cities where there is democrat control are becoming aware that politicians who are democrats cannot run a state or city and use bullying tactics to hide their incompetence. We are the sleeping giant that they have awaken. We kept silent for fear of making life harder for ourselves, but now we have to take our lives back and our city as well. We have no choice but to push back against this madness, or we will not have a country or a city. It may seem as though the deck is stacked against us, and it is definitely stacked against us because these politicians are selected by entities outside of us; but we can do something about our situation.

The problem is that these politicians pretended that they were solving social issues by coming up with programs to help the disenfranchised but were actually lining their pockets instead. Democrats have never built or created anything and have no idea how the economy works. They are filled with hubris and pretend that they are intelligent and that is why they have such a smug demeanor. It is because they think that we can never ever penetrate their fort. The good news is that they have been exposed!

It is evident that our America society is on the verge of collapse. All of this occurred because we allowed the government to slowly encroach on our civil liberties and all the while the republicans who were supposed to be representing did nothing to impede them. But we cannot lay all the blame at these feckless politicians’ feet. We have to take some blame for what has happened to us.

We can do this because the republicans are a reflection of who we used to be. Products of parents who have taught us to be submissive. Remnants of preachers who told us to turn the other cheek. Prodigies of teachers who did not properly prepare us for the world of work and politics.

Now that we have analyzed the problem, we can arrive at a solution and now we get to work. We do this by accepting our part in permitting the government to have so much power and control over our lives. Next, we forgive ourselves for being distracted, busy with work, family, fun and freedom. We forget putting total trust in candidates who promised to represent us.

By doing this, we can now fully participate in all elections and will vote every one of these politicians who have never had a real job out of office. From the resident of the White House to the senators, house of representative members, governor, mayor, attorney general, district attorney, city council members, school boards members and congressmen in our assembly, we must vote them all out and going forward vet the candidates who are seeking to replace them.

Going forward we have to understand that private life and public life goes hand in hand. We must be engaged in every aspect of life that affects us. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. We may not have understood that it is the regulations and policies of politicians that impacted our daily lives, but now we do.

Sunlight is definitely the best disinfectant. The light was shined and now we are awake.  We have locusts in our government at the federal, state and local level to exterminate. America is our home; if we don’t let the termites run us out of our homes, why are we running away from these locusts in government?

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEN & WOMEN

If a child comes home and complain to his parents that he is being teased or bullied at school, what is the usual response of the parents. More often than nought, the mother would probably tell him to let the teacher know what is going on, but what would his father say or do?  More often than nought, the father would take his son outside and start training him for combat. Unfortunately, the second choice has been wiped away from our society. The ability for the so-victim to fight back has been eradicated from the picture under the guise of some flowery words.

The following is an excerpt an individual who has a bachelor’s degree in law who has written an article about being bullied. The writer states, “Being bullied is a frustrating and painful experience. When you are being bullied, it can often feel like things are out of your hands. While the onus is never on you to stop the bullying, and it’s never your fault, there are some things you can do to handle being bullied.” By Toketemu Ohwovoriole.

There are two phrases in that excerpt that is troubling. The author did not seem to proofread her work and it calls into considering her contradictions in the passage. Her first suggestion:  while the onus is never on you to stop the bullying, sets the child up for failure. It tells him that he is helpless and is at the mercy of his circumstances. On the next line, she reinforces this terrible suggestion: it is never your fault, this lays the blame completely on the other person. There is no way out for either the bully or the victim to resolve the situation. And despite making these statements, the writer goes on to list ways to handle the situation by recommending:

  • Remove yourself from the situation.
  • Try to talk to the bully.
  • Talk to someone you trust.
  • Stay confident.
  • Enforce your boundaries.

In one hand, she is telling the person being bullied that the onus is not on them to stop the bullying, and on the other hand, she is telling them to remove themselves from the situation. And what is even most ridiculous is to tell the person being bullied to talk to the bully. I am not sure if she understands how bullying works. And then she continues her expert advice to tell the victim of bullying to stay confident and enforce boundaries. If I am not mistaken, all of this sure sounds like the onus is on the victim to stop the bullying.

The passage highlights what is wrong with females and schooling. The absence of mothers in the home is why people walk through water and never get wet. Mothers are no longer reading to their children in the home and there seems to be no evaluation of text in schools. Every student seems to be leaving school as an activist instead of a scholar.

Mothers are in the workplace, instead of in the home and this is causing a crisis in society. The mother is the first teacher, and the father is the person who brings objectivity. A mother’s role is vital for many reasons. She starts the learning process in preparation for formal learning.  She sets the stage for the father to bring a balance to learning.

But just as men have been emasculated, women have been beaten down as well and the child suffers with one-sided views that is divisive.

THE WONDERS OF FATHERHOOD & MOTHERHOOD

The best advice that can be given to young people is to enjoy and envelop life because before starting a family. Females are wired to have children. Everything within females is driven by the thought of one day having a baby. The reproductive system which leads to the menstrual cycle is all in place for that miraculous occasion for a woman to become pregnant. The amazing technology of an ultrasound can give a preview of the life that is growing inside of a woman. Studies accurately correspond with the development of the baby.

Parents will see that the stages of growth mirror the time frame laid out in books for organs to take shape. Bulges confirm life and movement. Fathers are not left out of the experience as the fetus respond to his stimuli. The swelling tummy reflects the growth that is taking place. Lamaze classes facilitate a smoother delivery, as it takes the focus off the pain because emphasis is placed on breathing.

Young people have the freedom to serve their own interest before becoming parents, but that all changes when a baby comes into the picture. Holding that helpless baby changes everything. The responsibility for that new bundle of joy may seem overwhelming but doesn’t have to be that way.

That is because as a young adult, you have been taking responsibility for your own life with lesser and lesser help from your parents and haven’t done such a bad job so far.

Parents from both the father and mother are usually close by to lend any assistance. Their expertise should be seen as invaluable.

SELFISHNESS & NARCISM

No man is an island. From antiquity to present day, people have always depended on the services of others in some form or fashion. It was the man who went out and hunted and brought the game home for the woman to cook. And what is constant is that children are dependent on their parents until they can take care of themselves.

Everyone is dependent on someone to still plant the food, make the clothing, build the houses, and create modes of travel. Each of these require some kind of skill and training. However, there seem to be no training for the most important job in life and that is to be parents.

The more advance societies become, the more selfish and narcissist people seem to be, as they are under the impression that they do not need anyone and that everything just pops up from nowhere.

Parenting classes are needed because it will help young people understand why populating the earth is so essential to the sustenance of everyone. But why are young adults so nonchalant? Simply because parents have abdicated their jobs of exposing their children to service.

There is a period of time when ‘it was all about you’ and another time when you can just focus on yourself, but the sequence in life requires the maturity to understand that you are needed.

Producing a human being is the most consequential event there will ever be and that is not an inconvenience, it is something that must be thrived for in the process of continuing our civilization.

LIFE OF SERVICE

Our civilization has been wonderfully set up. There is nothing new under the sun. We in this modern society have the help of all kinds of resources to assist us with anything that we are undertaking.

Life of service begins with us being obedient to our parents and respectful of others. Learning is an ongoing process and does not end when we graduate from high school, college or a trade. For example, a person who has been taught to drive and passes the driving test is not a driver just because they were given the license. They now have to put those lessons into practice when they are on the road alone, without an instructor sitting beside them.

The way in which children behave and act has its start from the time they are born and are exposed to life outside of the mother. The way in which the mother attends to the needs of her child, sets them up or hinders them from forming proper relationships with others. In conjunction are communication skills that children will need in all areas of their lives. It begins with the mother reading to the young child, engaging in conversations, listening and having an exchange of ideas. It is further enhanced with the tiny tot having the freedom and flexibility to explore the world on the inside and outside with the father by their side as guide and moderator.

Parents have to slowly let go of the reins and allow for more leverage as the child grows older for them to test out what they were told. As the young child expand their relationship beyond their parents, extended family and family acquaintances, they are being prepared for social interactions with people in the general public.

This process of giving and receiving, speaking and listening, listening and testing, adhering and punishing is all preparation for their future interactions in other facets of their lives. This is all about them learning that they are to be served and that they must also serve in the chain of life.

THE DIGNITY OF WORK

From the start of human creation, the first man Adam was assigned to work and that has not changed throughout the history of man’s existence. When God handed over the world he created to Adam and Eve, he could have handed them a finish product and let them just sit around all day.

After the fall and their expulsion from the garden of Eden, the man still had to go out and work, while the woman was tasked with childbirth and the caring of her young. The lines were clearly defined.

But overtime, men were attacked as being toxic and women were taunted for staying home and raising children. The work of men undermined the work of women. Comparisons were made between the man who was making a salary and the woman who was at home cooking, cleaning and caring for children.

The discontent between husband and wife, father and mother led to kids who were overburdened with chores and who became pesky kids.

Later, day care centers, nannies and public schooling became the guardians as men and women competed for salaries and wages.

The health and wellbeing of children suffered along with the parents and inevitably the damage was done.

Without proper supervision, children languish. Students are illiterate because no one is there to take interest in them completing homework assignments. The television is their babysitter. The cellphone is their playmate. Children are angry because they had to deal with their father being away so often and now, they have to cope with the absence of their mother as well. They have been left to their devices without a proper grasp of what they are getting themselves into. The anger of feeling neglected closes them off from sharing with their parents who are always bickering because the woman is overwhelmed, and the man is still going on as usual.

The dignity of work begins with individuals ready to revive the people and people willing to embrace the work needed to fix this scourge.

THE AMERICA-FIRST AGENDA

Our Founding Fathers declared independence from Britain and created a Constitutional Republic to put the power in the hands of the people to govern themselves, instead of being ruled by a king.  It was the Republican Party that continued that tradition, while the democratic party gained a strangle hold on some groups of people by offering welfare and the promise of healthcare and housing.

After seizing a block of the population, to maintain the power grab, democrat politicians proceeded to divide Americans by pitting Chistian’s against atheist, rich against poor, blacks against whites, working class against those who are on welfare programs and heterosexuals against homosexuals.

The Republican party’s mission is for less government, but the mission of the democrat party is to accumulate voters by offering handouts and free stuff.

The amass of power has led the democrats to claw, bully, threaten, intimidate, pressure, terrorize and force heads of departments to give in to their Marxist, socialist and communists demands. When apposed, they use name-calling, censorship, cancelling, pandering, slogans, the abuse of language & messaging, and fear-tactics to silence viewpoints.

Donald J. Trump has emerged as the leader of the Republican Party with the “America First” message. There was a shockwave when he became President in 2016, and in addition to all of his accomplishments was the exposure of the slow crawl to communism and socialism was underway. This has led to many people running for public office and parallel economies being set up along with alternative media to counteract the narratives. And now that the playbook of the democrats has been uncovered and exposed, it has led to them stepping on rakes and the overreach is backfiring.

THE INFORMATION WAR

I have stated before that wars have been fought for territory and for power. At that time, the world was made up of European territories that were jockeying for position as world leaders. The dominant race was white people who operated on an advance, sophisticated level. In other territories, people were content to stay in the confines of their territory. The only movement was them roaming from one area to another to find food and fighting against each other for survival.

The discovery of America by Europeans continued the war for additional land. It was the Pilgrims and Puritans who first landed on these shores to escape continuous persecution so as to get a new start to freely practice their religion. The worship God is the foundation on which North America was established.

Battles were not foreign to Europeans. Combating enemy forces was in their bloodstream. There have been over 400 battles fought by North Americans and one of the first was the Battle of Lexington and Concord. The American Revolution started with American soldiers going against the British soldiers and thankfully only about 90 soldiers were killed. After the Constitution was written, a Civil War was fought to end slavery. That battle started outside of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania between the Confederate Army of the South, which was led by General Robert E. Lee and the Union Army of the North, which was led by General George Meade which led to a total of 46,000 casualties. President Lincoln gave a two-minute speech famously known as the Gettysburg Address later that year at the Soldier’s National Cemetery in Gettysburg Pennsylvania.

A famous battle was the Invasion of Normandy, also known as “D-Day” where American Troops allied with Britain, Canada, and France to attack German forces which gave them victory that had a huge impact on the Second World War in Europe. The Allied Forces were led by Dwight D. Eisenhower of the US whereas the Germans were led by Erwin Rommel and Gerd von Rundstedt. We are asked not to forget the Battle of the Alamo which was a pivotal event and military engagement in the Texas Revolution. It was fought between rebellious Texans and the Mexican army from February 23 to March 6, 1836. The Alamo was a fortified old mission in the center of the town of San Antonio de Béxar, defended by about 200 rebellious Texans, including Lt. Colonel William Travis, Jim Bowie, and Davy Crockett. Following a 13-day siege, Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna reclaimed the Alamo Mission, killing most of the occupants.

The first immigrants who came to the colonies, brought their study habits and educational prowess, their work ethic, their ingenuity and their love for progress. Freedom is the main tenant of the United States of America. There has been a lot of sacrifice to make North America into what it is today. There are a lot of men who have shed their blood all across this land and the world and whose bodies lay in the Arlington National Cemetery is the country’s largest military cemetery and serves as the final resting place for more than 400,000 military veterans and their immediate family from the fronts of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as World Wars I and II, the Korean conflict, Vietnam, the Cold War and America’s Civil War.

These are the events that has led to respect for national sovereignty and the flag is a symbol and reminder of the soldiers that sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today. Veterans are now revered for their service and yet, the history of this country is not being taught as it should.

We are presently in an information war where everything has been turned on its head. Every institution has been infiltrated and watered down to meaninglessness. The question is being asked: “will this experiment of 240 years survive?”. It is time for a national revival.

LEADERSHIP

There is a difference between being the leader and being a leader. The Leader is the one who is on top of any organization. The success of any business is the man at top. The man who starts a business has an idea that he wants to execute and as he brings people on, it is crucial that he conveys that idea clearly to his staff through words, actions or example. For instance, if his idea is to make widgets, he must have personnel who does his accounts, who does the marketing and advertisement, and he must have someone who oversees the legal aspect. Additionally, he has to have people who make the widgets and packages them for delivery and people who sells the products.

He empowers his team by giving support, provided tools, and extra training for them to meet the goals of the company. He fosters growth and development by clarity which helps everyone understand their role and contributes to overall success. Leadership isn’t limited to formal titles; from the boardroom to the boiler room, people who embody the qualities of not just seeing the business as being owned by the person who founded the company, but a way in which they are able to run their personal business is a paradigm shift in thinking and working.

A leader understands the concept of leadership in another way. They may not be in charge of starting the business or running the company, but they are the leader of their own lives. As the leader of their household which is dependent on the finances that comes from the work they do, then they must step up as a leader to ensure that continuous employment is maintained. This is done by adhering to the terms of the employment contract of employment. That would involve showing up to work on time and on the days agreed upon. It also involves understanding what their duties are and making sure that their assignments are turned in on time and with efficiency.

The success of any country is also the man on the top who is the president. He must follow the laws of the land and in the case of America, that is the Constitution. The President of the United States (POTUS) holds a crucial role in the U.S. government. His duties involve reviewing Federal Laws (Bills). Congress consists of the Senate and the House of Representatives who makes legislation that he is either approve or vetoes. If he approves of the bill, it begins law. His main role in leading the nation is to ensure that citizens obey the laws that sets priorities for the country. He also works with Congress to decide how the budget is spent, addressing issues such as education, healthcare, defense, and infrastructure. The president serves as the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces. He makes crucial decisions related to national security, military operations, and defense strategy. The president negotiates treaties with foreign governments with the help of the Senate who must ratify these treaties. They combined efforts plays a crucial role in shaping international relations. The president appoints members of the executive branch, including cabinet members, ambassadors, and agency heads. These High-Ranking Officials impact the functioning of various government agencies. Of his most monumental duties is to nominate federal judges, including Supreme Court justices. Senate confirmation is required for these appointments. The president represents the United States on the global stage, engaging in diplomacy, attending international summits, and addressing global challenges to representing the Nation. During emergencies, natural disasters, or crises, the president provides leadership and coordinates responses for Crisis Management. Some of his other entertaining and symbolic duties is to host state dinners, meets with foreign dignitaries, and participates in ceremonial events.

Citizens may not be the leader of a country, but they are a leader of their own lives. They must be educated to what it means to be a productive citizen, a proper spouse, a good parent, a studious student, an ethical worker and most of all, an informed citizen of their political rights and responsibilities. As a leader, it is crucial that citizens hold their elected officials accountable, and that they understand what policies are in place and how it helps or hurts them. As a leader, they can run for office or assist a campaign as they are aware that politics impact them whether they are engaged or not. This is what being a holistic person is all about.

 NEW YORK, NEW YORK

Growing up on a small island is extremely different from living in a big city.  The landmass itself contributes to any world view. Apart from the weather, which remains relatively the same, the way in which houses and buildings are constructed and the modes of transportation will vary.

The lifestyle on an island is usually more of a laid-back atmosphere and the employment opportunities tend to be limited and more traditional as there is not a great demand for certain types of vocations. On the other hand, the pace in a big city is usually faster which lends itself to have pop-up shops and stores.

New York City has gone through many changes and yet is still the epicenter of America. It is still known for its port of entry for immigrants and welcomes tourist from all over the world to enjoy its arts and culture.

However, mismanagement has led to the rise of crime and violence and the tearing down of monuments that is supposed to serve as a reminder of what this nation was built on. Like many cities, New York has a long-standing tradition of being the city that never sleeps. But unfortunately, we have a group of politicians that are sleepwalking us off a cliff.

CLASS WARFARE

It is the job of older folks to pass on their wisdom and experience to younger people. Older women must embrace younger women and older men must embrace younger men and share how they have overcome obstacles. Young people must be open to these stories and comprehend that although life seems different, everything is still the same.

For instance, women have always worked and contributed in some way to society. It is not necessary to fight for the right for women to work and to compete with men. Black people have always worked in America and there is no reason to fight for their right to work and contribute to this nation. Immigrants have always worked in America and have always contributed in some way to the development of this nation and pathways to citizenship have been rigorous to ensure the stamina of people seeking to live and work.

There are particular jobs that women can do and certain jobs that only a man can do. Women’s psyche is formed in a particular way that draws her to specific vocations and men are built to carry out fixed jobs.

As an example, men are sent to war. Embedded in them is the ability to fight and defend. This is not the case with women. They are wired to care.

European people are geared towards risks and adventure. People from third-world countries are more low-keyed. Some people go out there and start businesses. Others may not want the headache and would invest in the business. While many would prefer to just work and not have all the responsibility it takes to run the business.

In school, there are always three types of children. Those students who are scholars and academically inclined. Then there are students who are not so bright. And right in the middle are students who are of average intelligence.

In every society, there are the super-rich, the very poor and the middle class. These groups balance each other. There are only two genders: a male and female. They are supposed to balance out each other as well.

Social stratification is intact. However, economic stability is volatile and must be attended to because the height to which the population can reach has not been truly addressed.

THE BROKEN LEGS THEORY

Turning the Corner. If we as parents are not satisfied with what our children are doing, or not doing for that matter when they have become adults, we have to look internally and question where we went wrong. The same can be said for our nation at large. Today our society is a mess. Our representatives are either wayward or weak. Where does the blame lie? Citizens bear some responsibility for an out-of-control government. Just as training and discipline is required in the home to keep children in check and reinforcement of values and ethics is expected in the private sector to keep employers and employees in check, there must be policies to reign in public servants. Without laws and the reinforcement of those laws, society falls into chaos.

The Broken Legs Theory has been playing out behind the scenes for many years but is now being enacted in plain sight. The concept of ‘broken legs’ is as follows. Break up black families and then ask for public assistance programs and welfare and expand cities into a Nanny State. Break the border and demand reform and money to fix the problem. Open pipelines and give money to countries that are up-to-no-good and then demand more money to resolve the conflict. Stop all drilling and lie that it is about saving the environment which impacts the making of products and the delivery of goods. Push for babies to be killed under the guise of my body my choice, while mandating people to take an experimental vaccine. All the while using name-calling tactics, shutting down any discussion and fearmongering to force people into compliance.

Lack of courage. And while all of this is taking place, people are constantly surprised at the weakness of those who without fail do not push back in any significant way. The weakness of those who are supposed to be an opposition and the fear of the general public is reflected in the lack of response on either side.  When speaking up has become dangerous, fighting back can be deadly and disagreement comes with a cost, who can blame themselves or their representatives. Parents are supposed to help their children do courageous things. They are there to encourage bravery. But statistics do matter, and it takes one man to get up and dance for others to follow.

And now many citizens of this country are coming to the realization that no one is coming to save them and even if the calvary did come, they still had to get in the battle. And so, for those who are objectively observing all of this, solidarity with those who have created this great nation and died to preserve it has never been so apparent. There is no difference between parents who thought that life was all about them, until they held their spawn in their hands and people who are recognizing that they have to take a stance to stop the collapse of this country. There is now no separation between those men who willingly signed up as troops and went to war and the women who had to pick up the slack and courageously balanced raising children and filling the gaps that men left and people who have to stand.

In Philadelphia, during the summer of 1787, when the men emerged after four months of deliberation throughout the convention of states and a lady famously asked, “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” To which Franklin replied tartly, “A republic, if you can keep it”. It serves as a reminder that the preservation of our democratic institutions rests not only on their establishment but also on the vigilance and commitment of the citizens who uphold them. The time has passed to fret about who was or is failing us and why they have sold out this country. Many parts of this country have been falling for a long time and only now like dominoes, the affect is being felt all over.

There has been a clash of civilizations in the United States of America for a long time. Majority white European people against minority races. The chasm between a mind that gravitates towards development and an inferiority complex of existence. The ideals of first-world people versus the ideology of third-world people. The expanse of wealth and prosperity as others wallowed in abject poverty. And a middle class that sought to hold everything together as representative of the bourgeoisie. And just as in the times of war color, creed, race and class no longer matters. We all have our part to play, whether great or small.

MONEY/FINANCES/BUDGETING

Many economists complain that the general population do not understand how to manage their earnings. Many people have high credit card debt, do not know how to budget their earnings and do not have a solid financial nest egg. Critics say it is the fault of the school and others point to parents who seem to be at a loss of how to properly prepare the kids for the future.

In such a powerful country as the United States of America, it is inexcusable that so many young people leave school without a clue of what they want to do with their lives. It is a disgrace that these same young people are not taking advantage of the multitude of opportunities that are available. Somewhere, somehow, we as older folk have dropped the ball.

At a time when we as individuals do not have to worry about dinosaurs or the hazards of brutal climates because we have managed to invent modern conveniences, people are just as lost as ever.

Someone or some ones closed the public square and discussion which is paramount to people have been rebutted. The marketplace of ideas has been halted.  The building blocks of society has been suspended and inventing and innovating has been discouraged.

For some reason, opinions have been censored, relevant information has been cancelled and now certain topics are off the table. People are too sensitive to hear criticism and standards must be lower for other groups of people.

This insanity must be stopped, and thoughts and ideas allowed to flow so as to counteract the insanity that is hanging over us and crushing our will to live. We must welcome the knowledge of older folks. The feedback is paramount to our survival as a species. Now, no subject is off the table going forward.

NO MORE APOLOGIES

Christians were taught that this world is not their home and that they were just passing through. And so, many believers in God, fell for the preaching of ministers and settled in a job waiting for the skies to open and Jesus to come and take them to heaven. Year in and year out every generation was told that they were in the world but not of the world and not to store up treasures on earth. These ministers rejected wealth-building and many lowly people struggled to amount any substantial capital. And if any of them needed money, they were told to pray to the Lord for a job and that was the answer to all their troubles.

But non-believers or atheists were not buying into this malarkey.  They understood that trade was an important part of life and invested in stocks and assets. They took over the world that Christians abandoned and became the owners of property, businesses and large corporations and the consequence was that Christians became the hired help and renters. Education and degrees were so heavily criticized by preachers that Christians felt guilty for going into any field that yielded gains. This was not the case with nonspiritual people. They leaned into every diploma, certification and degree and became the teachers, professors and tutors and started pushing their view of life to children who were vulnerable. They became lawyers and judges and government officials and formed a coalition and overtime; Christians were shut out of every institution.

But finally, Christians have come to the realization that they do live on this earth and that while passing through, they still need to take care of themselves and those around them. They are now aware that if they truly believe in God, then as his children, this earth belongs to them in this life and the life to come. The emphasis on just getting through each day has now been completely turned on its head. By waking up from the stupor they were put in, they realize that they have a lot of ground to make up because they had fallen for the obfuscation of truth. But is it too late?

Emphatically, no! As long as there is life on earth, it is never too late. The truth is that Christians have to be vigilant going forward. While preparing for a new earth, they still have to take care of what has been given to them by their heavenly father. This awakening has led Christians to admit that the predicament they find themselves in is because they had dropped the ball to an insatiable group of people. This has ultimately led to a nation in crisis. The nation in crisis is actually the destruction of lives which in turn leads to a lot of mess on many fronts. The mess requires a clean-up crew to do major house-cleaning and there is unfortunately, a lot of cleaning up on aisle America.

Regrettably, not having built up enough funding for this enormous project, Christians have to rely on the God of the Universe to sponsor this massive clean-up program. The initial bartering exchange has evolved to trading with money which inadvertently has resulted in purchasing power being done with cash or cards.  So, in order to attain the tools and equipment to clean up any mess it will require the backing of the Master of all the riches on this globe. Christians have to morph into cleaners so as to come to grips with the reality that finances are where the power lies, and control of the purse strings is how major problems are fixed. It takes tools and equipment to clean up the mess that has been made which can only be brought with money. As cleaners are solicited, additional money will be required to maintain the cleaning process. In order to keep and grow the movement of cleaners, funds must be attained to cultivate and train them in the work that has to be done.

Qualified cleaners then have to be dispersed into the private sector and rise to the ranks of CEO and while that is happening, cleaners have to also get elected in the public sector and rise to the ranks of governor and mayor. Cleaners have to end government programs that take away the dignity of people and cleaners must restructure school systems to build the resources of minds in a tangible way. Cleaners have to become the new media and be tasked with reporting the news with honesty and integrity.

Cleaners have to be brave in speech and action and most of all, be explicit with their children so as to not have weak, uninformed, low-information prodigies. Weakness and ignorance have ushered in a phase of madness and degeneration. Strength and knowledge will clean up the mess and steer everyone back into the essence of civility, high standards and accountability. We are in the last quarter of this game. Without further defense of values and apology for principles, Christians/Cleaners can come from behind and bring home a win. Remember, that in Christ we already have the victory.
