Right wing government wrong from inception

Democracy has taken hold in a few states, despite people having access to a private vote.  It is not democracy when a portion of the population are subject to oppressive and exclusionary treatment apart from any officially legal sanction.  When a government has to bring police and military resources to prevent the just participation of some of their citizens in society then it would seem that Nazi atrocities have become mainstream.  If you do not believe that nationalism, religious zeal and extreme tribalism is what drives the most pervasive elements of evil on the planet then right and wrong for human beings may need a new canon.  The hardest thing for anyone to admit is that they are wrong from the start, whether thousands of years or dozens of decades have passed.  For perspective, Canada has had over a century or so to correct Sir John A’s madness, the USA over two centuries to embrace the preamble of its constitution, and Israel has had more than three thousand years to make justice real for Israelites, migrants and foreigners.

Location problems

Making a decision to identify oneself with popular political movements on the right or left is one of the red herrings of our times.  The so called left and right wings of politics have been responsible for a lot of upheavals, including wars, extrajudicial killings, coups d’etat, flooding the courts with rogue judges, and fostering ongoing animosity between communities.  People are allowed to have and express their views without having to face ridicule or personal attacks.  The wings of politics are red herrings because there is no agreed upon centre.  Homo sapiens, after reviewing the failures of both left and right wing governments, would have to be renamed, because of how long we have been limping between the extremes of political theory, homo insipiens.  Nowhere is this homo insipiens more active and popular than in those nations desperately trying to copy Israel’s duplicitous dance with law and order and in Israel itself.  It is no accident that a Muslim house of worship crowns Temple mount at this time. 

Wings that have nothing to do with flight

People who are willing to continue saying and doing what their ancestors have “always” said and done are not a few.  They include our neighbours, people we work with, people we are willing to say are good citizens.  Most disturbing is the alliance of diverse groups with a sometimes clearly stated goal of making life miserable.  God may be said to have given Canaan to the sons of Israel under Joshua’s leadership, but who is so wingless as to fantasize about God’s regard for people other than the sons of Israel?  Christians have so neglected the serious study of the sacred record of the Jewish people’s history that all they can come up with is the same Sinai and levitical arrangement.  A bird that refuses to leave the nest behind is as impoverished as the mind that clings to the elementary things of human life on the planet, namely, blessings of the hill, mountains, valleys and the deeps.  Mental and spiritual flight should mean the discovery of new realms.     Do not let ancestry traced to Abraham fool you. Let us simply be certain that the lad who accompanied Abraham to Moriah cannot be both Isaac, ancestor of the Jewish people and heir of the land of Canaan and Ishmael, the father of Arabian tribes.

Jail homicidal settlers

“Kicking out” is what the Jewish people would like to say is the method by which Abraham’s descendants got possession of Canaan.  Abraham and his great grandchildren lived in Canaan as pilgrims.   Settler privilege and violence has never been curbed, despite the fact that the treasure of the Israelite kingdom is a shrine built on land bought by David from a Jebusite.  Until a genuine community emerges in the mountains of Judah the state of the nation will be racist and xenophobic war.  If the Palestinians are mere tools of Islamic interest then the people taking over Palestinian land, especially in East Jerusalem, are Chinese tanks mowing down citizens in Tiananmen Square or homicidal and  brutal police officers.  God sees right through the zionist rhetoric, anger, and scholarship.

Not a flare-up

If Benjamin Netanyahu cares more about friendship and commercial ties with Arab and Muslim nations than about Palestinians whose land Israel keeps stealing in plain sight, it is because he has rejected the discernment the God of his fathers gave to David of Bethlehem and his son Solomon. If Mr. Netanyahu does not recognize that David was King long before Samuel poured the oil and put the crown on his head, it is because he thinks a political party barely able to garner a majority can make a man an honorable man.

Does Bibi read Arabic?  Read Quran, Bibi: Muslim nations will never be your friend and neighbour, and you owe the Palestinian people an apology, the return of their property and a seat at the table. Residence matters, my brother. לשבת לספר

Who is in charge when communities anywhere on the planet find themselves on a carousel of homicides, illegal destruction of property, and facing mounting walls of judicial cover-ups and criminal government officials? Nobody besides the blind will believe that a God is backing Netanyahu’s sixth kick at the can, or ponder more than briefly that a right wing government can represent the divine interest.

Before the con-sensus

If you wish to see how malevolence will appear to triumph using decent standards such as clear language and the production of popular counts (like views, clicks and downloads) let us watch the development of a consensus apart from the United Nations and apart  from simple observations over the violent encroachment of Russia upon Ukraine.  The push back begins with the simple question “Is it an invasion” and it gets cornered with the question “Are you for or against Russian actions against Ukraine”?

Please visit  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reactions_to_the_2021%E2%80%932022_Russo-Ukrainian_crisis to see how data manipulation goes to a satanic level.

Believe your ears before they are a-tingle.  The fallout is a shower not a sprinkle.

Dangerous democratic divides

The following statement by a head of government reveals how diversity is the real threat to bogus democracy.

“Our political opponents’ deceptive, demonic agendas to fuel chaos and confusion will not be allowed to take root in this country. 

We will resist their violent aggression and lawlessness to maintain peace and tranquility in our country. 

Antigua & Barbuda will remain a safe and prosperous nation for all its citizens and residents.  

We will not surrender to partisan thugs, posing as freedom fighters.”

Hon. Gaston Browne
August 9, 2021

I take it that labeling something as demonic opens the door to extending the label to its owners.  When that happens the labeler will have declared war outside the boundaries of law, creating hostilities where none may have existed.

Parsing “demonic” is not like parsing “lawful”.  Demons are never nice guys, are always on a mission of death,  theft, and destruction, and they cannot be expected to gravitate towards the truth. What is lawful today can be the basis for tomorrow’s apology or the step onto higher ground.  Death, theft, and destruction are present in every nation and in the long run are the symptoms of failure.

The Hon. gentleman is exaggerating the threat of public protest.  Public protest may not be the foundation of AGBDA society,  but our very existence as a free people will always be a strong rebuke to colonialism and oppression. The last thing a liberated people want are slippery slopes in law, welfare,  and security.  People pretending that they have found governing principles written in stone had better wake up.  Government has used violent methods to shut down cultural expressions, fearing that people might hear a call insurrection. The current  furor is due to the poor quality of the public discourse. 
It seems to me that grammarians (small g deliberate) can be setting a better example, whether few or many are actually scribes.  There is expertise  that has the capacity to bring minds to reasonable grounds.  I for one am tired of the piecemeal treatment of the varied and, in my opinion,  vital components of a less emotional and more intelligent conversation.

Since the PM is on the record calling his opponents demonic he needs to bring out the exorcists.  Since he is on the record calling his opponents lawless it is curious that the opponents have not been apprehended and charged.  Violent assault is latent in the forces arrayed against all citizens, not in the citizens’ expression of their opinion  and protest.  Chaos is inherent in the wilderness of governments patterned after the colonial masters.

Sleep will continue to elude every leader who thinks that the need for change ended when they got elected or that no protest is a sign of utopia. The divide in democratic societies is becoming mre dangerous as leaders scramble to appear heroic and foundational at the same time.  Woe is me for buying partisan  politics as the fuel for generational change.

Bye Bibi. The clock is ticking

Twice elected as chairman of his party (1993 and 2005) and competitor in seven elections, the lame duck (caretaker) PM Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel is a striking figure.  He obviously likes being the strong man, posturing Israel as a democracy in an ocean of despots. His brash and bold juvenile moves were not enough after twelve his  years in power.  On the scale of lengthy reigns Bibi is a brash and bold baby whose goodbye will burn another hole in the Zionist dream.

There aren't enough terms in office for bad guys to get the job done.

His strength is that of a man who unleashes the Israeli military on a population of landlocked Gaza.  His vision of Israeli independence is either a joke or a nightmare of foreign domination.  Why else would he go to the United States for confirmation of the location of Israel’s capital?

Not even his alliance with Jewish parties espousing strict religious practices has made him a statesman or a roke model.  Netanyahu’s twelve years in the PM’s office is only a quarter Manasseh’s, the king of Israel with the most wicked record, who reigned for 55 years, beginnning when he was a mere twelve year old. 

But they did not listen, and Manasseh led them astray to do more evil than the nations had done whom the LORD destroyed before the people of Israel.

2 Kings 21:9

Netanyahu has faced four elections in two years and this shows that Israel, far from being a genuine democary, is just like Russia, India and Pakistan, holds elections to retain the label democratic and find support among the dedicated democracies of the west. The big red deagon, the People’s Republic of China does not even bother. 

Many in the west are afraid of saying the truth about Israel’s defiance of intarnational law.  It is as if Israel can do no wrong.  No state is getting better.  Israeli clocks stopped clicking a long time ago.  With the passage of time Israeli leaders get better at covering up their wickedness but keep straying further from the actual experiences that have been most beneficial.
