The current condition of our country leads me to believe that we are at the end of this empire; not too far removed from the example the Roman Empire left behind. All the senators are gathering their last minute bribes, while sending reluctant soldiers to war to massacre innocent victims in an animal-like ritual that has similarities to pagan blood sacrifices, when they themselves are supposed to represent the light, the Holy Roman Empire.
With all the philosophers on hand, we have ours as well: Thom Hartmann, Chris Hedges and Bernie Sanders. Thank God for the sage and for our wisemen. But these fools won’t listen to reason or gasps for mercy. Their pride calls them ever downward to the abyss that will complete balance in the universe and peace in the next life.
So don’t lose faith when you feel like you’re living in hell, you are, “Let Justice be done though the heavens fall”. Your governors and politicians have aligned themselves with the business community instead of your decrees, your commands, and your clarion call of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
In the panic of this Gladiator battle of life and death, we stab, we stab, we stab each other in the back until we don’t have any neighbors left to prick our conscience unto good deeds. Only the memory of what has been lost in the Arena of broken promises, The American dream.
