Critical Mass

dominoesby Glenn Fairman   10/5/16
The Oracle has born witness. If you listen to the voices beneath the surface of Political Life, there is a torrential cacophony of fury ascending skyward. Like blood boiling in stagnant waters, it fills our nostrils while our consciences are shocked into stark incredulity.

That our days should come to such evil is perhaps the curse we have warranted for desiring sleep and forgetfulness over austere vigilance in the weighty things of Men. The Constellations point… to signs and wonders as America vibrates towards critical mass.

We know not what the vision portends, for the prophetess has sealed her eyes and extinguished her lamp. We only know that the days are waxing momentous beyond all measure, and that she trembles in the darkness for having witnessed the utterance she dare not reveal.

    Well, if the meaning of the oracle is unclear, ’twas ever thus. But we can at least read the signs of the times, and they’re split between “STOP” and “HURRY”. I know which one I’m inclined to obey.

  2. Steve Lancaster says:

    True prophets generally deserve the kicking around they get, Cassandra was condemned by Apollo who gives her the gift but makes it so she is never believed. Altogether too often the old adage, “be careful what you wish for, you just might get it”.

    “That our days should come to such evil is perhaps the curse we have warranted for desiring sleep and forgetfulness over austere vigilance in the weighty things of Men.”

    Glen – I’m not so sure that men desire sleep and forgetfulness. In fact all the admonitions to stay awake in the bible would indicate that the ancients desired otherwise. They knew however that complacency, that forgetting, and that sleep, posed a significant challenge that all mankind must face.

    For many of us in America the ‘pursuit of happiness’ has become the pursuit of comfort and the acquisition of material things. Each succeeding American generation it seems has been dumbed-down and drawn further and further away from the intentions of the founding fathers.

    It is part of the recurring story of mankind; “those who do not remember their history are doomed to repeat it.”

    Up until I was 30 I ‘believed’ in the left, the Democrat party. My unconscious mantra was, “Democrats good, Republicans bad.” What is that old saying, “if you’re not a liberal when you are 20 you have no heart, if you are still a liberal when you are 40 you have no brain.”

    This belief did not stem from any real study or examination of what they stood for, or what they were in fact doing. It was more akin to just following the herd of the young and rebellious. Life circumstances at that point led me into some serious self-study, and reflection. At the end of that road, a study of history ensued. This journey brought forth my awakening, and when I came out the other side of it, I was shocked by what I saw. I did not recognize the country I had grown up in.

    The founding fathers said that a country such as the United States could only survive as long as there was an educated population, a population that could think and reason. Now we have come to a crossroads where enough of the citizenry has been retarded and hypnotized by ‘group-think’, that there is a clear and present danger to the continued existence of America. This is why home schooling is critical. This is why trying to reach out and converse with family, friends, and neighbors is so important.

    The progressive mainstream media, academia, and the political elite may seem like the have won and reign supreme, but again this is something they want us to believe.

    Pull back the curtain Dorothy, and you will know the truth about the wizard, and the truth will set you free.

    Proverbs 20:13 Love not sleep, lest ye come to poverty…

    1 Corinthians 15:34 Wake up from your drunken stupor…

    Isaiah 51:17 Wake yourself, wake yourself, stand up O Jerusalem…

    Romans 13:8-14 the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. …

    Ephesians 5:14 “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

    Thessalonians 5:5-6 For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober.

    Revelations 3:2-3 Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die…

    Hmm, while I sympathize with the article and the commentary somewhat, I am mindful of a few things;
    I hesitate to lump all American citizens into the same pot – if that’s what’s going on here. One of the reasons I like this site is because you people are different. You DO sound the alarm both here, and I suspect, in your personal lives as well. Some of us are indeed – Watchmen. I also think it’s possible to pursue careers, rear families, obtain creature comforts – and still play the role of Watchman.
    The balance of our concern, therefore, are those American leaders – be they political, business, news, or entertainment – that aid and abet this cacophony of chaos. It is they who deserve your vitriol – not ‘most’ of America.
    Let me explain. Most, I fear, confuse the Christian trait of ‘meekness’ with sleepiness or weakness. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Since there is no great ‘forum’ for those working to develop and refine this divine strength, we do not hear from them. Certainly it would not be found in modern media. I believe there are more in this group, than in the strident minority we hear daily.
    The decline of the newspaper medium and the growth of alternative news sources are just the ‘tip’ of this iceberg – indicating an ever increasing groundswell of displeasure at the fare currently produced – and finding satisfaction with the truth where they can find it.
    It may be that these are, ‘The Last Days” in which case nothing we can do will stem this last tide except continue to stand fast until then.
    If it is not, then I predict the groundswell of opposition will grow until, like finally dealing with a recalcitrant child, we will simply discard the current cadre of leaders and install ones more virtuous.
    Of course, no one ever said that was going to be easy…

    Of course the winds of culture are not categorical, but they are prevailing. We have not reached the dire straits of Sodom, where but for 10 virtuous men, the City might be saved. Yet, one does not need a disembodied hand to tell us what vibrates in the marrow of our bones. If Nineveh forestalled her judgment, I suppose America can–even if all leading moral indicators are inexorably approaching red line.
