When will the USA again be ready to return to the roots of its founder’s paths of wisdom instead of our contemporary paths of folly? Or, how to change directions in our Nation to the only proven path in history that led to a more friendly world envisioned by our founders?
Today’s Chicago Tribune Hagar the Horrible above feature image carton of this post reminded me of the following ancient wisdom verses.
To everything there is a season,
2a time to be born and a time to die,
3a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to break down and a time to build, (Ecclesiastes 3:1-3
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time. (Ecclesiastes 1: 9-10)
What’s My Point?
Does anyone who reads or listens to the news in our contemporary times and truthfully believes we should be optimistic about the future of our Nation and World based on the present path we experienced in the past and present centuries?
For example, in my lifetime of 81 years, I have experienced five major wars that the USA has been involved in the World. WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan. Add numerous ‘police actions’ where US troops have been and still are stationed.
My point is every generation since recorded history has experienced the same unfriendly actions as the above feature image portrays.
Which sadly records the truth of the King Solomon observations he wrote 3000 years ago and that is we humans keep repeating to follow the same paths of folly depicted in the Hagar the Terrible cartoon.
In My Opinion
Anyone who truthfully optimistic and believes is the present path our Nation is headed, based om the current mews we read or hear will result in a more friendly Nation or World in the future, is the same path envisioned by our founders based on just the past 80 years, is living in a fantasy world view in my opinion.
For example, the USA is currently headed to incur a 30 trillion-dollar National Debt which has proven in history to lead to supernation of the dollar in the near future. China and Russia are positioning themselves military to acquire more power around the world, The USA is determined to solve climate change without the world joining in the same efforts. Covid is now a world plague draining the resources of every Nation.
All of the above are repeated failures in history regardless of types of governing such as Democrat Republics, Communism, Kings or Queens, etc.
While at the same time we mortals have turned around from teaching our children the only proven path in history successful to lead to a more friendly Nation or Words.
The sooner we parents realize that the only path is to teach our children what our founders believed, which sadly has been ruled by the Supreme Court to be unlawful to teach/
That is to be taught the wisdom and love recorded in the Bible, which to me is and always has been the answer to this conundrum.
In my opinion, instead of parents fighting school boards, they should elect legislators to support school vouchers so they can reverse the present path of folly in our Nation and World when they become adults.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Or as King Solomon wrote, in this verse:
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticked closer than a brother. (Proverb 18:24)
