"Wherefore We must interrupt a silence which it would be criminal to prolong, that We may point out...as they really are, men who are badly disguised." Pope St. Pius X, September 8, 1907, Pascendi Dominici Gregis

This is Not About Trump; This is About You

Trump is not the issue. The real reason the outgoing president, large news corporations, the bureaucracy, segments of the intelligence agencies, major corporations and media figures, foreign officials, and in some cases your next door neighbor, coworker or boss want to undermine Trump is because they what to undermine you. They don't want you to get any ideas - that having a positive attitude, committing yourself to the point where you will go through anything to assert your will, knowing confidently that everything they try to shove down your throat is some kind of scam - will allow you to live a true life, a centered life, a life without fear, a life of independence from them, a life worth living - in a word - a life.

Trump is not perfect, and even if he succeeds more work will remain to be done, like dismantling the central bank and rebirthing morality. And they may not stop Trump, but they will stop you, if you let them.

Now is the time to act. Even if it is small. Do something you thought you couldn't do. Do it anyway. Accept the consequences, even the most fearsome consequences. Life is not about cowering. Life is about risking everything to live. You cannot protect yourself. Seeking protection only subjugates you to those more bolder than you are. Be bold. Be determined. Everything has risk. Take that risk, embrace it, and make it your own.

Now is the time to act. Don't let them win.
