What is the violence in the cities all about?
The Chicago Tribune article asked the above question and the writer gave a litany of his opinions of the reasons, except the main one in my opinion.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb to the question and my opinion of the core reason and how it keeps repeating in every society as recorded in history.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Proverb 9:10)
What’s My Point?
The article has many valid reasons for the violence taking place in our Nation.
However, there are two reasons that become apparent if one views the videos of the shooting’s victims, the mob lootings and behaviors we are witnessing.
Lack of fear of authority.
The writer mentions how the Bill of Rights and Constitution guarantees due process and a jury trial to delay fear of punishment by offenders. Releasing on bond a gang member to threating witness to cooperate with authority is a well-known reality in Chicago shootings.
Organized gangs or mobs demonstrating out of control and looting knowing the authorities cannot arrest everyone is another example of how lack of fear can escalate and fuel mov violence.
My point is that above examples of reasons and the litany of other reasons in article are absent the core two reasons for the violence which in my opinion is the result of two core reasons.
In My Opinion
The silence of the Democrat Party which I explained in a previous post is fueling the violence by inserting a wedge to separate and breakdown the limits of authority to maintain order in our Nation. I explained in a previous post why Silence is complicity.
Add to history of how revolutions of communism and fascism succeeded by silence rooted in fear of harm by speaking out/
The main or core reason though of fear of the Lord perpetuated in the last century by a combination of fear of teaching religion because of fear of Papal influence brought about government control of schools. Which over time under government control has made private religious schools unaffordable for poor and middle-class families.
What we are now witnessing is a number of generations over time never being taught to Fear the Lord and the belief that when we die there will be a higher authority accounting for what harm we did to our brothers and sisters, regardless of color or creed. has made
In other words, there has been in history numerous schemers over time who profit or use force to obtain power and riches from their fellow humans who figured out how to evade authority and the result was to circumvent lawful authority because of lack of Fear of the Lord.
Even though many Black and every other skin colors parents want school choice or school vouchers to teach their children their religious value, the Democrat Party will not allow them according to this statement.
. “Black parents love charter schools and voucher-supported private school vouchers because they teach values, self-respect, and hope. But no, if this option for poor or lower-income parents has more Democrat opposition than ever.”
In other words, both silence and obstruction to teach the religious values taught in the Bible of wisdom and love are the core missing reasons missed in the Chicago Tribune article, in my opinion.
If you don’t buy my argument, ask your legislators for a statistical survey of how many black children have every had the opportunity to attend a private religious school. Also ask your legislators to conduct second statistical survey to compare how many people convicted of a crime went to a public vs. a private school in their early years of learning?
Read the Source Links Below which include another survey comparison of numbers of police shootings of various races. Then ask yourself if the fact Blacks or other skin colors have higher statistics of being victims of shootings because of their early childhood circumstances of single parents and lack of opportunity to attend the schools of their parents’ choice.
Wise or foolish two missing reasons of the root causes of violence and silence “is what the violence is all about” in our Nation?
