Buy Local; Source Local

The solution to mega-corporate intrusions and censorship is to buy locally and source locally. Buying and sourcing locally is going cost more, but results in local control of resources and products. It cuts mega-corporations out of the loop and give local residents control of their lives again.

Biden Presidency

A couple of days ago, Republican protesters stormed the capitol building in Washington DC. For 12 hours Twitter and Facebook (the two largest social media companies) blocked all tweets and posts from President Trump. All his posts and tweets asking protesters to stop what they were doing and leave the capitol building peacefully were blocked. Now the same people behind blocking his posts and tweets blame him for the protests and demand he be impeached a few days before Biden is seated as president. Literally the same group censoring and silencing Republicans, and causing the protests are the same ones claiming the protests mean Trump should be punished.

I have never seen the Democrats, Liberals and secret combinations acting this boldly to thwart democracy. The suppression of freedom of speech and obvious voter fraud is so blatant that I feel my country has already fallen. Biden himself declared on a national broadcast a few months ago that he had secured the largest and most diverse voter fraud organization in the history of the country.

The behavior of the most evil, anti-Christs in our country reminds me of the scripture, …“the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”

-Revelations 12:12

Yesterday, I went through my Twitter account and removed all political tweets related to this election. We lost. No sense making a target out of myself by sharing the truth about how we lost with people that need to learn the 10 commandments before they can understand why our country is about to disintegrate. I’m sure that when the country is finally destroyed by our enemies, the Liberals will declare it to have been because of “global climate change”.

My expectations for the next four to eight years … The Liberals will shut down the Christian Temples and Churches demanding gay marriage happen in them. China, knowing they have a paid crook in the White House, will invade Taiwan. Child molestation will be normalized as just another sexual orientation. Christians will be vilified and persecuted as much as they were in their early days in Rome.

God will strike down our country, or at least the more evil parts of it. Be prepared for hard times ahead. Look to Cuba and Venezuela for examples of what we are going to go through. God’s punishments will be much worse.

Love Changes People

Everyone has a world view built on axioms that they accept without question. Incorrect world views and beliefs come from beginning with the wrong axioms. Correcting someone’s world view often requires changing their founding axioms. But their axioms cannot change from logical argument, because they did not come from logic, but from feelings.

If you want to change an enemy into a friend, you must change their axioms. Logic did not create their axioms. Feelings created and cemented their axioms.

Feelings are the only way to repair and replace an enemy’s axioms. The strongest and most noble feeling for fixing axioms is love.

Love your enemies. Show love through forgiveness, words, and deeds. You may make a few of them into friends with similar beliefs as you.

I have been through Cache Valley on a Sunday

If you have ever seen The Other Side of Heaven, you are familiar with John H. Groberg. He is the main character in that movie. This is a beautiful talk he gave in 1984 to the General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The original talk with video can be found here.

The Power of Keeping the Sabbath Day Holy

by John H. Groberg

 

How I pray for the Spirit of the Lord to continue to be with all of us, as it has been thus far.

The injunction from God to “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Ex. 20:8) has been in force throughout human history. There is power in keeping the Sabbath day holy. I testify that God lives, that we are his children, that he loves us, and that he gives us commandments so he can bless us as we keep them and thereby have joy. As we keep the Sabbath day holy he will bless us, and we will achieve a quiet power for good as individuals, as families, and as nations, that we cannot obtain in any other way.

Let me give two examples: Continue reading “I have been through Cache Valley on a Sunday”

Don’t Side with Evil

I have never liked Trump. However, now that I’ve seen the bias, hate, and rage of the most evil celebrities and powerful people directed at him, I have to ask, “Why would the most vile in our society hate anyone so much?”

The only answer I’ve been able to come up with is

Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Revelations 12:12

The only people that the children of satan hate this much, are those that are serving God.

As I wrote above, I never liked Donald Trump. But, now I have to consider the possibility that he has changed and is doing God’s work. Why else would the most evil in our society have so much unconstrained wrath concerning him?

Luck and Laziness

Luck and Laziness

Luck tapped upon a cottage door
    A gentle, quiet tap;
And Laziness, who lounged within,
    The cat upon his lap.
Stretched out his slippers to the fire
    And gave a sleepy yawn;
“Oh, bother! Let him knock again!”
    He said, but Luck was gone.

Luck tapped again, more kindly still,
    Upon another door,
Where Industry was hard at work
    Mending his cottage floor.
The door was opened wide at once;
    “Come in!” the worker cried,
And Luck was taken by the hand
    And fairly pulled inside.

He still is there a wondrous guest
    From out whose magic hand
Fortune flows fast—but Laziness
    Can never understand
How Industry found such a friend.
    “Luck never comes my way!”
He sighs and quite forgets the knock
    Upon his door that day.

Should Cities be Banned?

I have long suspected that large population densities are bad for humans. How bad? Look at the resulting population of every major city in the world, and you come to the conclusion, Very Bad.

What is bad? Bad is families breaking down. People turning their back on social norms that promote harmony and peace of society. Crime, sloth, and acceptance of the perversion of social norms eventually becoming common place.

I ran into this study showing what happens to rodents in a simulated urban center.

city_simulation_with_mice

The summary is that males lose their purpose and eventually become asexual. Females lose mothering instincts and eventually become infertile. The population literally dies out completely, not because of disease or violence, but because it turns its back on all its social norms that originally led to reproduction of the species.

This leads to an insight and a question.

First, if you want to have descendants for as long as there are people on this earth, teach your children to live in the countryside away from urban centers.

Second, the question. Should dense urban centers be banned for the good of culture, society, and the existence of our species? Should there be a legal limit to population density? Honestly, I don’t know, but I think this study says,  “Yes.”
