Where do our ever-increasing society problems come from?
On a daily basis and worldwide, we are waging an untold war of survival.
And it’s about the survival of our species that we are speaking about.
And our battles are liberalism vs. conservatism; globalism vs. patriotism; polytheism vs. monotheism; tradition vs. agonism, and the list goes on.
However, there is an underlying common denominator.
It is the main war within our species between survival and self-destruction.
The question here is:
WHY do we have to survive?
Let’s look at the outer world first:
See all those stars, planets, galaxies?
They look pretty harmoniously distributed and coordinated. Sure there are collisions now and then out there, but thanks already to Ptolomei, Aristotle, Copernicus who led the way to show that the Universe has a pre-established system, we can say that in all the cosmos functions in an amazing order.
Likewise if you take a microscope and look at atoms and all its microscopic elements, neutrons, protons, etc., they are equally set with an extraordinary precision.
Now, let’s look at our bodies. Those of us who know anatomy couldn’t be more in awe at the beautifully well-set machine that is our body –and so it goes for the Regnum Animale, Regnum Vegetabile, the animal and vegetable kingdoms.
Again, there is ONE single common denominator in the whole universe, live or inert, whether one believes in Gd or not, and it’s that everything has come with a definite element of harmony and order to protect the survival of the existent.
In life, every living organism has been given an inner code called the “survival mode” which is most heightened at the level of human beings.
A brand newborn human baby is the most defenseless living creature.
Sure, animals are also defenseless but on another level because a newborn baby animal does not need to be nurtured and fed by the parents during one year to get him walking –animals walk generally, almost right away and that alone changes the whole name of the game.
Unlike ‘all’ other patterns, whether the stars in the sky, as the microscopic world or Regnum Animale or Regnum Vegetabile, which function with a seemingly well-imposed and well-followed synchronicity, there is indeed only one species that has ‘free-will’, the possibility of choice, and that’s “us”, human beings.
We, obviously, have chosen not to acknowledge that “message” left for us to see:
Either we follow the same universal harmonious and hierarchical “order” or we will auto-destruct.
Since its inception, when cavemen discovered that to survive they needed to associate, it has been difficult to deal with the very common human flaws of envy, greed, jealousy and so on.
All of that has become a liability for our future and is getting worse by the day.
Since mankind appeared so did the seeds of revolt against authority and the establishment, naturally beginning with disobedient Eve, following with Cain and Abel. Such a tiny first nuclear family of homo sapiens and so many human flaws already…
On the other hand, maybe it has been because as humans watched animals in the wilderness they were brought to think that those animals are free… Why not we as well?
Nothing farthest from reality and, sorry to break this news, no animal is free.
All animals are born with a definite pattern that they are unable to break. They “are” slaves to their own pattern. To give one of abundance of examples: Birds flock north or south according to the season, they can’t choose to inverse their route. They eat what they are supposed to eat. They mate when they are supposed to mate. And so on.
The vegetable kingdom is just the same. Cactus appears in the desert. Flowers blossom from spring to summer and in autumn their colors change until they are gone for winter.
We, poor humans or maybe arrogant humans, have believed that we can get away with insubordination against the expectations the Universe has from us.
But, it’s obvious the universal pattern is refusing our system –and is allowing us to get it our way, but it’s telling us it’s the way to self-destruction.
When children do not respect parents, when citizens of a country desecrate it, when brothers turn against brothers, the Universe is telling us loud and clear that it is not, and cannot be, right.
And, those of us who recognize it, maybe we still have the time to stop the countdown and reverse the destruction machine, make a difference and go back to those universal values which will allow us to survive and, furthermore, to thrive in this lifetime –for us and generations to come.
HOW TO SURVIVE
It will not happen if mankind continues to surrender to suicidal policies promoted and supported by positions that defend enemies in our own territories, whether we are in the United States or in any country in the world.
Accepting, for instance the right to freedom of speech being used to attack one’s own country, is an abuse of that right especially when one sides with the enemies of the country and that position could end up jeopardizing the safety of its inhabitants. But, alas, that’s just one example in so many.
These are our only weapons to survive:
The defense of our value system, family values, authority, patriotism, religion, loyalty, solidarity, compassion.
No military weapons can ever defeat what lies in the minds and souls of human beings.
An enemy has to be defeated in their field to make victory irreversible.
And, Liberalism and its accompanying symptoms will only be controlled –if not eliminated altogether, if men and women who realize the danger are ready to create an army of souls filled with strength and righteousness to fight not only for survival but for a better life in this world altogether –knowing that otherwise, they will be jumping willingly on a free fall led by the well intentioned yet misguided liberal minds of this world.
Only you can decide, as Churchill said: “If you will not fight for Right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival.
There may even be a worse case.
You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
The choice is yours.
