“The state of monarchy is the supremist thing upon earth: for kings are not only God’s Lieutenants upon earth, and sit upon God’s throne, but even by God himself they are called Gods.”
For most of Man’s history, the masses have been subject to rulers who claim to have a mandate from heaven that gives them the right to act as they will. This right, these rulers say, has been given to them because they are conduits of divine blessings for their subjects. This is one way of saying what’s best for them is best for others as well.
In America we not only decided this right didn’t exist, but that no one had a right to rule another without that person’s consent. That worked pretty well until everyone claimed the divine right to create a kingdom of their own—if only in their own mind—to which all others must bow and celebrate their rule.
Because we think it oppressive to invoke the name divine right, we have opted to call this kingdom, “My Truth”. But don’t think that this idea is something new. The temptation to seek dominance over all else, including reason, is as old as mankind. To be the final authority as to what is right, what is wrong, what is good, what is evil, and what powers I am entitled to exercise is summed up in the promise, “You shall be as gods”.
It is with god-like authority that we demand the world to accept and celebrate all that we may imagine to be true. I’m not a man—I’m a woman, a cat, a unicorn. I’m a gender I made up and a color-coded, economic, social victim. Celebrate my preferences, bend to my will or be damned with all the other heretics!
Americans are schooled to embrace the tyranny of subjective truth, to bow to a Collective Consciousness, and to be included in its homogenous diversity. The message is blasted from boxes in our homes.
Let the experts think, here’s a game to amuse you. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain, look what these people are doing. Resistance is not only futile; it is evil incarnate. My country right or wrong.
I was about to add that Americans no longer have the intestinal fortitude to say no to tyranny. I no longer think that is so. Rather, I believe most Americans do not recognize tyranny even when it slaps them in the face. Nor do they care that tyranny is the new normal they have accepted as the price of peace and safety.
