Slavery ended in the USA, or did it really?
I read a Citizen Tom Blog titled GOVERNMENT-GIVEN RIGHTS VERSUS GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS — PART 1, which compared USA Constitutional Rights to God Given Rights. Both are noble thoughts and words
The Purpose of This Post
To relate an ancient wisdom verses to the reality of these noble thoughts and words.
Folly is appointed to great heights, but the rich sit in lowly positions. I have seen slaves on horseback, while princes go on foot like slaves. He who digs a pit may fall into it, and he who breaches a wall may be bitten by a snake.…(Ecclesiastes 6-8)
What’s My Point?
The thoughts, words, and deeds related to Rights are all commendable but for some reason, mainly folly, many people treat themselves as slaves.
My point is some people are just not interested in learning about the Constitution and are happy to be led by pied pipers of all sorts including politicians, activists, salesman, Hollywood glamour, even educators, con artists, drug peddlers, gangs, foolish peers, etc.etc. etc.
In My Opinion
Should we Blame it on parents, schools, or who or whatever circumstances?
Or is tThe old idiom of “you can lead a horse to a water but you can make ‘em drink if they don’t want to.”
In other words, good and great moral leaders were trained in childhood, but even then, from time to time as recorded in history the slaves (untrained or fools) somehow obtained power and rode over everybody else.
In my opinion, the USA is in deep dodo because we voters have allowed ourselves to be led the same way the pied piper led the fool rats to fall over the edge into the river and drown themselves.
Whether we drown themselves in debt, sickness, worry, foolish decisions, love, hate., etc. etc. etc.
We need to train leaders again to understand the differences between being slaves to pied piper leaders.
Citizen Tom once commented we need to return schools from government control back into parents’ control.
Is his comment relevant if you consider how too many kids have grown up never being trained to understand both Constitutional and God Given Rights and the result they have become poor “slaves” instead of rich in body and spirit even though the Constitution gave them the Right to be free.
Poor instead of rich in spirit, and sadly in my opinion, we are being bitten up by a lot of snakes and don’t either know or care about the Constitution, rather too many of us are mainly focused or concerned with listening to the music of treasure and pleasure in our lives.
In other words, whether we have been born or earned citizen Rights under the Constitution or God, we are capable of making our own choices, wise or foolish, who to follow on our paths in life. Paths which we all know have limited seasons and times as observed and written 3000 years ago by King Solomon in Ecclesiastes Chapter Three.
In my opinion, the best pied piper to follow that contains the most meaningful thoughts and words to help us out of a state of slavery in our lifetimes and instead become Prince and Princeses during our seasons is the Bible practical and Spiritual noble thoughts, words of guidance’s of love and wisdom.
