Setting Suns on Horizons of Ambition –

Reader comment on item: Fellow Conservatives, Please Reject Conspiracy Theories
in response to reader comment: "Democracy is the worst form of government – except for all the others that have been tried." - Winston Churchill

History is Out of Options for New Beginnings
If there were any deficiencies to be found in the former American foundations of government, it is in the ease by which conspiracies and their theories were ingrained in the political mindset of both America's enemies and her friends, so-called. Reader Ludvikus brushed against this in his dissertation here; and though this observer does not necessarily find total agreement in what was presented, there are remnant thoughts of similar thinking which have led to certain conclusions that are irrevocable in their irretrievability of doubtful actions on the part of all who sought to impose or impart some ill-conceived notions of how to govern a world bent upon a course of self destruction along with a willingness to take all along in selfish desperation.

Contemplation of this is like sitting on the seashore of the Mediterranean and observing the varying shades of a sunset as it disappears beyond the horizon, even to the catching the glimpse of that snap of green as the light processes through the rainbow of spectral brilliance, then going to the subdued tones of the more muted shades of subtle beauty; then darkness. Do we dare turn to look over the shoulder in anticipation of the next sunrise, hoping to catch another glimpse?

But what of the warning, of the sailor to take warning of a red sky on the morning horizon and what bodes for evil that is pending for the lack of proper preparation?

It is here that potential conspiracy theories are converted into conspiracies pending; that while the world went into the sunset slumber in the last moments the prior days intrigues, forces of darkness insinuated themselves into nightmares of those contemplated conspiracies to complete the ideas of tragedies that appear to so easily beset the unsuspecting victims of mankind that so desperately want to escape to the next day's end of a setting sun. Winston Churchill, that epoch's Donald J Trump, made an observation by which it is surmised here as he bemoaned the last sunset on the former empire upon which it was said the sun never set, if Britain's history lasted for a thousand years, they had their finest hour. So, too, did America.

Empires have risen and fallen, sunrises and sunsets, cyclical attempts to bring about some sense of governmental order to the seemingly random adventures of multiple sectors of earth's population centers and all have failed. Only one has promise of rising again; but not by human standards. Israel is promised resurrection; all other attempts made false premises and allegations of superiority over the rule of the only nation that ever made history by being reborn into history: and who dares to stop that process? The conspirators are legend; they plan from the Great sea to the west from the sunrise of empires to the east; all having one thing in common; the attempted defiance of fallen empires whose previous sunsets should have been a warning not to provoke the one King who can never be defeated. Folks, that time is fomenting, now: who is watching?
