Seeds of Sedition Planted Long Ago - Have Ancient Roots

Reader comment on item: De-platforming in Daily Life
in response to reader comment: The most terrifying trend

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 3, 2020 at 15:02

Roses have an effect on the senses that for some, can be luxuriously enticing for reasons of visually pleasing effects along with, in some instances, aromas that are cultivated for perfuming. However, as many will attest in prose, poetry and music, they come with warnings: some are wild and even the cultivated ones will injure by their thorns.
This observer's lifetime incorporates American history that had/has been affected by the lifetime of the great Soviet threat of Stalin, who by all assessment, both vilifying and idolizing, perpetrated the most deceptive acts of political destabilization, active insurrection, and outright conquest that the modern world has so far been subjected to; and that includes comparisons to the Third Reich and the current crowd of proteges in China (where might one suspect Mao took his lead). They took Marx to the max.
What is happening in America was foretold in ancient tomes, from the annals of the old Roman republic to the more compelling Hebrew Holy Writ, upon which the basis of American jurisprudence was contemplated, and borrowed from. Why was/is America apparently susceptible to the loss of the rule of law-instead of the basic inherent goodness of mankind as espoused by some, Americans, like anyone else in the world (France is a good example), will resort to the baser influences if left unchallenged by observing constraints imposed by laws with the provenance of holding to a higher authority-of such was the difference of the republics stemming from their respective revolutions. Napoleon jumped in where Washington would not.
The absence of appropriate law and order by the current authorities in the cities with unfettered and unruly instigators of violence are doing nothing more than that which is expected of those referenced in Scriptures as sons of perdition; that they seem to follow some organized pattern is merely the secret expressed desire of say, following the Rules for Radicals by Alinsky. But this is merely third of fourth generation of those who refuse to abide by the Scriptures upon which fundamental rule of law is based; they are in rebellion for it is their cause in life. However, it is a terminal cause; and like weeds in the rose garden, they dry out and in some instances, get burned with the tumbleweeds.
