Is our present season in the USA Congress on a path of madness and folly to supply arms to Ukraine while at the same time disarm the USA?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot says people charged with violent crimes ‘are guilty’ and shouldn’t be released on bail.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate the issue of punishment for violent criminal actions which have been recorded in ancient history to our contemporary times political seasons of liberal vs conservative paths to govern in a world of madness and folly best describe ed by King Solomon as humans ‘chasing after the wind.’

King Solomon – Ecclesiastes Chapter Three Excerpts

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

19 For that which befilth the sons of men befilth beasts; even one thing befilths them: as the one diet, so diet the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

Two Greatest Motivations in Life

Fear = Ecclesiastes 12:13 – Old Testament

Fear God and keep his Commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.”

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses. (Proverb 10:12)

Love – Bible Verse – 1 John 4:18  – New Testament

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

What’s My Point?

Both humans and animals have been recorded in history to partake in beastly actions to kill to survive.

In ancient and contemporary times, it is both scientifically and philosophical proven that Fear and love are the two main motivations in life of both animals and human that have been used by leaders since the beginning of time to attempt to control or reduce violence, hatred.

If f we read and compare the article of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and compare to what I surmised in a novel a conversation on Punishment for Crimes explained by King Solomon to the Queen of Sheba, nothing has changed on the issues of punishment for crimes over time has changed except the seasons of human perceptions by various government political winds to change human behaviors.

My point is all we humans have experienced over time in history has been a pursuit of human vanity to attempt to change the directions of the wind on the issue of punishment which now seems to be the same course of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

In My Opinion

While we tinker with human laws to change back and forth liberal vs conservative politics on punishment of criminals, innocent victims are the result and price being paid in our communities.

What is needed to reduce the madness and folly has been known for centuries as effective a path to reduce crime.

First A short range plan is to take Chicago Mayor opinions seriously and somehow find the means to require convicted criminals to work and be schooled while in prison instead of paying to store them for a time and then releasing them back into the streets to often times just repeat the same offends to survive.

Second – A Long-range to teach youth the basic precepts of wisdom and love in the Bible which unfortunately went off the path of our founding fathers when government took congeal of pub lik education and made it illegal to teach ancient biblical wisdom and love in public secular schools. The result is youth having g no conceptions of remora to shoot and kill another human that we are now reading and hearing daily in the news.

In other words, both humans and animals who have no fear or love motivations in life, will continue to increase in the same way as the wind as described in this following king Solomon observation verse. Which is what the present result of seasons of politicians now in power on crime and punishment.

The wind goth toward the south, and turpeth about unto the north; it whirled about continually, and the wind returned again according to his circuits. (Ecclesiastes 1:6)

You Decide

Does it make any sense for Congress to fund sending arms to Ukraine which at the same time disarm the USA during a season of rising crime, madness and folly now occurring in the USA?

While at the same time, does it make sense to allow 18-year-old to purchase miliary grade automatic weapons when most psychologists agree that an 18-year-old mind has not yet matured psychologists ever been introduced believe that at the very least, a human should expertise some remorse for shooting another human because they are different form a soulless beast?

A DuPage Sherriff stated that 80 percent of his inmates have drug or menta problem. Should his statement perhaps be a clue that people in jail are in need of a season of change to 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; Does it make any sense for average citizens to live in fear and buy guns to protect themselves from criminals known to kill any witnesses who come forward to testify in court against them because politicians no longer believe in jail or bail?

If an 18-year-old in the USA wants to buy a gun, would requiring him or her to join the military be a better choice to obtain training how or where to point the weapon and obtain the skills to hit his target of hatred instead of innocent victims?
