ON HATE, ANGER AND MOB RULE

You don’t have to go far to see the results of unbridled hate and anger. Turn on the TV, any news channel, or glance at a newspaper headline and you will see what mob rule, fueled by hate and anger, looks like. For those who live in the affected areas you merely need to look out through your windows, assuming they are not boarded up.
What we are seeing is not a pretty sight, nor is it necessary. Mobs are made up of people and each individual in such a group has made a personal decision to give vent to hatred and anger in the least productive manner possible. To be sure, most of the people in the so-called “protests,” often involving looting and the destruction of property, think that he or she is striking a blow for justice and for the righting of ancient wrongs. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
The events that serve as catalyst for the protesters taking to the street are tragic but even more tragic is the underlying truth that these uprisings are orchestrated and financed by shadowy figures whose agenda has nothing to do with justice or truth.
Those carrying the signs and marching for the cause are for the most part sincere individuals who feel they are addressing grievances and have no other recourse. They feel that the “system” has locked them out, ignored their plight and is rigged against them.
The shadowy figures mentioned above, those furthering their own quite different agendas, have schooled the protesters that strength lies in diversity. Not so. Diversity is division, strength comes from unity. The number one rule in the despot’s playbook is divide and conquer.
What we are witnessing in the streets of our cities is nothing less than the destruction of our civil society and these gatherings that are leading to such destruction are not organic in nature, they are well planned, well coordinated and highly financed.
Just as the mob is made up of individuals, misled in my opinion, making the choice to participate in anarchy, the solution also depends on individuals making a choice. Each of us can choose whether we wish to be a part of the problem or of the solution.
Hate and anger are running rampant in our streets. Ask yourself, what positive result do you know of that ever resulted from the expression of either hate or anger?
Negative emotion brings negative results. And the converse is equally true, positive emotion has positive results.
In order to find a solution to the many real and often systemic problems this nation faces we must also address the fact that many of our political leaders, at all levels, elected and appointed, are profiting by increasing their power and fortunes pandering to those “shadowy” puppet masters.
These so-called leaders must be rooted out and the power to do so rests in the voting booth. One of the greatest dangers facing our country, or any other democratic republic, is the low information voter. The only positive solution lies with you, the individual voter. However it requires work. If we are to regain control of the offices that are supposed to be working on behalf of the people then we have to educate ourselves, not only on the individuals seeking to gain or retain those offices but also on the fundamental powers and purposes for which those offices exist.
The power of the ballot is the true power of any democracy and we cannot allow it to be replaced by a system of mob rule controlled by unelected and unaccountable individuals who seek to destroy our way of life.
The choice is yours, unite and regain control of the political system or succumb to mob rule.
