"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

As a Tinkling Cymbal

If I speak with the tongues of men, and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. (1 Corinthians 13:1)
At a conversation with friends over coffee, we were discussing the most effective way to govern a society. One aspect of government we touched on was how rules should be communicated to and enforced among the governed.

Actual Anarchy gave the example of the towns in Europe that abolished all traffic laws while simultaneously reconstructing roads in such a way that the only way to drive on the roads would be the 'safe' way. For example, imagine a straight and wide boulevard where it is perfectly possible to travel at 80 mph even though it may endanger other users of the road, a sign that says you can only drive 40 mph, and certain people who are paid to act as 'officers' who have a limited ability to enforce what the sign says and sometimes abuse that power. Instead, the road is now constructed of cobblestone so that it is literally impossible to drive faster than 40mph because it would destroy your car.

The results, of course, speak for themselves.

My friend made the seemingly convincing argument that, while he didn't fully disagree with this later method, he thought that the sign still had value inasmuch as it can explain to a user of the roads the proper method of driving. His argument, if we understood it correctly, is that it is an act of charity to take the time to explain the need and how to drive safely, rather than simply forcing you to do so.

This struck us a reasonable enough argument. That is, until we drove home from the coffee shop.

On the way home, we encountered an intersection with dual traffic lights. As we approached the intersection, it was clear our light was green, had been so, and continued to be for some time. During the twenty seconds or so it took us to proceed to and through the intersection, we noticed the second light was not functioning. And in that second lane sat a car motionless, the driver seemingly unable to proceed without the approval of his lane's green light.

While it could be true the driver was oblivious for other reasons, it recalled to mind the nature of language and symbols. The problem it becomes apparent is that while language can be extremely useful, relying on it too much can be downright harmful. If society becomes overly dependent upon signs and legislation for its methods of acting, we can begin to disintermediate ourselves from reality and begin mistaking the abstract symbol for the concrete reality.

We become as drivers in need of green lights, even though all the prerequisites for driving forward - even legally - have been fulfilled. But because that symbol we are too highly dependent upon is not there, we are paralyzed.

So, while symbols have a use, we must not come to replace reality with symbols. As in the verse from Corinthians, if we are all words and no action, we have not charity.

A symbol is like the tinkling cymbal. Remember that.

A Nationalism, If You Can Keep It

“Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”

  “A Republic, if you can keep it.” - Benjamin Franklin, at the Constitutional Convention
With his CPAC speech President Donald Trump has begun to put to rest concerns, originally posited most notably at Philosophy of Metrics, that contrary to his populist posturing Trump's administration might mark a fundamental transition away from a strong US Dollar to the SDR-centric global monetary regime.

For those that don't know, the SDR is basically world-money, conjured out of thin air like every other national fiat currency today. Instead of being managed at the national level, its value is determined on a multi-lateral basis (read: "by globalists") at the IMF. It is backed by a certain percentage of other national currencies, such as the US Dollar, Chinese Yuan, Japanese Yen and British Pound. There is even speculation that the IMF might include a small percentage of gold in case of emergency just to lend stability to what could easily become a very unbalanced system of rapidly counterfeited digital world money backed by equally rapidly counterfeited national paper currencies. Not that you could actually trade in your SDR for gold. No, no, they'll just hang on to it for you.  ; )

The implementation strategy for the globalists remains the standard one of waiting for (or perhaps creating) some major financial crisis. Then they will roll out the 'solution,' which is really just more of the same taken to the next level. It will be presented as the needed fix before the market crashes another 5000 points and you lose all your money in your 401k.

It was posited by Philosophy of Metrics that Trump might represent a reverse-psychology approach. As a candidate he would portray himself as every bit of the American ideal, but behind the exterior of "more jobs" and "Chinese currency manipulation" might lurk a ploy to transition from the dollar to the SDR with the excuse being that it is the only way to decrease our huge trade deficits. The "American sovereignty" candidate would be used by the globalists to inflict what would be perhaps the greatest blow to American sovereignty ever, the stand-down of the dollar and the rise of the multi-lateral SDR. And Trump's motive? He was just paying back the Rothchilds for the funds he needed to save his real estate empire when the Atlantic City casino market tanked in the early '90s.
After quickly expanding the reach of Resorts International to Atlantic City in the final years of the 1980’s, Donald Trump found himself in financial trouble as the real estate market in New York tanked. The three casinos in Atlantic City, like other Trump assets, were under threat from lenders.  It was only with the assistance and assurance of Wilbur L. Ross Jr., senior managing director of Rothschild Inc. that Trump was allowed to keep the casinos and rebuild his threatened empire.
Yes, that is the same Wilbur Ross who is Secretary of Commerce today in the Trump administration. Such a scheme sounds plausible, and anyone who ventures into politics is well-advised to watch his back, especially if he is just an American voter looking for an honest politician. No doubt the Rothchilds and similar-minded bankers are scheming a global currency, as a means to achieving their world government. The question remains whether Donald Trump is our most effective means to combat these globalists or whether he represents the best false-flag strategy yet conjured up by the enemies of American sovereignty and common decency. Philosophy of Metrics indicates a G-20 monetary conference called by Trump at Mar-A-Lago will be the tip off.

Alex Jones, famed champion of American sovereignty and anti-globalist, has taken the opposite view. He seems convinced Trump is the real deal with no ulterior motives. If anything, according to Jones, Trump is simply trying to get even with a system he doesn't like, but had to deal with in order to save his real estate empire. But now, we have the first words from the Donald himself indicating his anti-globalist bonafides.
Global cooperation - dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries - is good; it's very important. But there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency, or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I'm representing. I'm not representing the globe.
If these are the words of a true American, they represent the most significant return to the Americana of the Founding Fathers in the last one-hundred years. If Trump can implement a nationalist movement, an America-first foreign policy coupled with a return to authentic capitalism at home, Trump will go down in the American pantheon with the likes of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. The most critical point: it will be up to us to keep the nationalism that Trump is re-establishing.

The strategy seems to be playing out. All the right people seem to oppose Donald Trump. CNN, Republicans and Democrats, Glenn Beck, Pope Francis, Hollywood socialites, European and Chinese politicians, George Soros, career bureaucrats in the CIA and other federal agencies, even Goldman Sachs gave all of their campaign donations to Hillary Clinton.

We must hold Trump accountable to his script. There is and there will be no such thing as a global currency. In fact, after we have lowered income taxes, eliminated unnecessary and unconstitutional federal programs and agencies, repealed Obamacare, and thereby returned the US economy to actual economic growth, we must go all the way. Just as Jefferson and Jackson did, we must abolish the Bank of the United States, or what is today called the Federal Reserve.

As we have long outlined here at Actual Anarchy, this final act of repealing our Central Bank is the key to exterminating the key source of leverage the globalists have against us. It makes sense that Trump wouldn't do this out of the box. The economy is too weak and his coalition untried. We must step up to the plate. We must run for Congress as Trumpians! We must start businesses, start families, get jobs! We must work harder to inform our fellow citizens! We must give aid and comfort to those who are doing these things.

This movement did not start with Donald Trump. This movement is not even about Donald Trump. But we must hold Trump accountable to his words, his pledge of American sovereignty. There is and there will be no such thing as a global currency.

And once it is clear that there remains enough Americans willing to take advantage of the door Trump is momentarily opening for us, that we are still strong enough to govern ourselves as a morally upright and productive people, we will shove the zombie of globalism into the coffin of history and nail it shut. End the Fed!

Capitalism is Neither Materialistic Nor Debasing

The only path to morality, fulfillment and holiness is through capital accumulation.
If one man hires out to another his strength or skill, he does so for the purpose of receiving in return what is necessary for the satisfaction of his needs; he therefore expressly intends to acquire a right full and real, not only to the remuneration, but also to the disposal of such remuneration, just as he pleases. Thus, if he lives sparingly, saves money, and, for greater security, invests his savings in land, the land, in such case, is only his wages under another form; and, consequently, a working man's little estate thus purchased should be as completely at his full disposal as are the wages he receives for his labor. But it is precisely in such power of disposal that ownership obtains, whether the property consist of land or chattels. Socialists, therefore, by endeavoring to transfer the possessions of individuals to the community at large, strike at the interests of every wage-earner, since they would deprive him of the liberty of disposing of his wages, and thereby of all hope and possibility of increasing his resources and of bettering his condition in life. (Rerum Novarum, Pope Leo XIII)
The greatest beneficiaries of capitalism often become the greatest opponents of capitalism. One need not look any further than the designs of the Rockefellers, Rothschilds, and Soros' to create a New World Order, based on a one world fiat currency exclusively under their control and a regulatory superstate whose dictates apply to the mass of people, leaving the cartelized, monopolized, corporatist less-than-one-percent free to take from the poor and give to the rich. There will always remain the temptation for those who achieve great riches to become overly attached to them and their power and to use their wealth to prevent others from rightfully accumulating wealth.

It is the aspiring capitalist's right "to acquire a right full and real, not only to the remuneration, but also to the disposal of such remuneration, just as he pleases" that is most under attack by the enemies of the free market. We are all aspiring capitalists. We must be, for the logical principles of economics are founded upon an essential fact that no man can escape, "man acts."

It is the Federal Reserve that most debases our rights, by depriving us of the "full and real" effects of our money. Because federal reserve notes are the legal tender of the nation, there is no lawful alternative to the Federal Reserve System. Therefore, we cannot avoid using an institution whose very existence entails the legal counterfeit of currency, to the benefit of those that receive the newly printed money - governmental agencies and large backs - and to the detriment of aspiring capitalists everywhere who must accumulate this currency at one time or another, even as the value of this accumulation is steadily counterfeited or 'inflated' away.

The only position consonant with true American capitalism is a return to free banking accompanied by what is historically most likely, a return of gold or silver backed money. For the Catholics also, the only non-fraudulent banking system fully consonant with natural law is the same.

As Ron Paul said, we must end the fed. If Trump represents a true return of Americana, he must end the fed.

Why aren't you as rich as you should be?

End the fed.

Catholicism Is Not an Endorsement of the State

"Thou shouldst not have any power against Me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore, he that hath delivered Me to thee, hath the greater sin." John 19:11

Even if we are ultimately resigned to the [in]justice the state metes out, a Catholic's first duty is to the truth. Submission to authority is not the full story. While Our Lord, as God, certainly had more standing to challenge the religious and secular leaders of His day than any one of us does to challenge our leaders today, it remains clear from His actions that pursuit of truth will sometimes involve vocal and physical resistance to those who claim unjustly to be the rulers of humanity.

You'll notice in the passage above that while Jesus places greater blame on the plotting of the pharisees, who retain the "greater sin," the Roman state is by no means exonerated.

Indeed, if our Lady is to be believed at La Salette among many other apparitions, in the time we are living disobedience to the powers that be [and resignation to the injustice with which they repay our rightful disobedience] may be a prerequisite of sainthood.

Most are aware of the words of our Lord to the pharisees calling them a brood of vipers and His turning over of tables in the temple. The application of our Lord's teachings to real world governance run much more thoroughly through history than many are aware.

In the "City of God," St. Augustine tells the story of a pirate captured by Alexander the Great. The Emperor angrily demanded of him, "How dare you molest the seas?" To which the pirate replied, "How dare you molest the whole world? Because I do it with a small boat, I am called a pirate and a thief. You, with a great navy, molest the world and are called an emperor." St. Augustine thought the pirate's answer was "elegant and excellent."

Perhaps the greatest condemnation of the monarchical state - that so many Catholics hold in such high esteem - comes from none other than the LORD GOD Himself when speaking to the prophet Samuel:
And it came to pass when Samuel was old, that he appointed his sons to be judges over Israel. ... Then all the ancients of Israel being assembled, came to Samuel to Ramatha.  And they said to him: Behold thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: make us a king, to judge us, as all nations have.
And the word was displeasing in the eyes of Samuel, that they should say: Give us a king, to judge us. And Samuel prayed to the Lord. And the Lord said to Samuel: Hearken to the voice of the people in all that they say to thee. For they have not rejected thee, but Me, that I should not reign over them. According to all their works, they have done from the day that I brought them out of Egypt until this day: as they have forsaken Me, and served strange gods, so do they also unto thee. Now therefore hearken to their voice: but yet testify to them, and foretell them the right of the king, that shall reign over them. Then Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people that had desired a king of him,
And said: This will be the right of the king, that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and put them in his chariots, and will make them his horsemen, and his running footmen to run before his chariots, And he will appoint of them to be his tribunes, and centurions, and to plough his fields, and to reap his corn, and to make him arms and chariots.Your daughters also he will take to make him ointments, and to be his cooks, and bakers. And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your best oliveyards, and give them to his servants. Moreover he will take the tenth of your corn, and of the revenues of your vineyards, to give his eunuchs and servants.
Your servants also and handmaids, and your goodliest young men, and your asses he will take away, and put them to his work. Your flocks also he will tithe, and you shall be his servants. And you shall cry out in that day from the face of the king, whom you have chosen to yourselves. and the Lord will not hear you in that day, because you desired unto yourselves a king. But the people would not hear the voice of Samuel, and they said: Nay: but there shall be a king over us. And we also will be like all nations: and our king shall judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles for us.
And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and rehearsed them in the ears of the Lord. And the Lord said to Samuel: Hearken to their voice, and make them a king.
It is clear that GOD Himself considers the Jewish people's desire for a king as an affront to His Own authority. Even here we see the beginnings of the modern welfare state coming into view. The 50% income tax rate of modern European states and the workaholic feminism that dominates the present American generation are just further degradations from 'taking the tenth of you corn' and 'making your daughters his cooks and bakers.'  This is not to say there is no reason to hold particular Catholic monarchs in high esteem. God bless us with such governors! But praise for monarchy other than Christ's per se is a different matter, and we must not treat as an absolute a Catholic preference for monarchy that was at most a historical necessity in the face of a militant and centralized Protestantism.

God's dismay at the desire of His people for a monarch may become more comprehensible to modern ears if we say a little about the method of government that until this time God had instituted among His chosen people. As the Douay-Rheims commentary points out, "the government of Israel hitherto had been a theocracy, in which God himself immediately ruled, by laws which He had enacted, and by judges extraordinarily raised up by Himself; and therefore He complains that His people rejected Him, in desiring a change of government."

While modern Christian culture is a victim of protestant sentimentalism, even Catholics today seem to get caught up in pseudo-romanticism when considering such concepts as 'grace,' 'theocracy' or 'God himself immediately ruling by judges extraordinarily raised up by himself.' Magic is a tool of Satan. God is the master of reality, and while grace has a supernatural origin, it encompasses real-world, concrete effects. Only the profane degrade the reality of God acting in the world to some sort of "Hocus Pocus."

The truth is we can describe in great detail the methods of governance that prevailed under the Judges of the Old Testament prior to the Jewish monarchy. Natural law scholars have done so since the earliest days of Western civilization. Look no further than Bruno Leoni's magnum opus, Freedom and the Law, which answers the question 'does law require legislation?' with a resounding 'no!'
Leoni's great contribution is to point out...an alternative to the tyranny of legislation. Rather than accept either administrative law or legislation, Leoni calls for a return to the ancient traditions and principles of "judge-made law" as a method of limiting the State and insuring liberty. In the Roman private law, in the Continental Civil Codes, in the Anglo-Saxon common law, "law" did not mean what we think today: endless enactments by a legislature or executive. "Law" was not enacted but found or discovered; it was a body of customary rules that had, like languages or fashions, grown up spontaneously and purely voluntarily among the people. These spontaneous rules constituted "the law"; and it was the works of experts in the law—old men of the tribe, judges, or lawyers—to determine what the law was and how the law would apply to the numerous cases in dispute that perpetually arise.
"Judge-made law" should not be confused with judge-made-up law, which prevails in the United States today, wherein rulings have basis neither in the Constitution nor natural-law. Obviously, 'judge-made' law requires the utmost precision of reason and exercise of good-faith. It is a logical, organic process of finding the natural law and was correctly seen by the ancient Israelite to originate in God Himself, who as any Catholic knows is the Logos. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

Man's knowledge and practice of the natural law has progressed under obedience to God and regressed under obedience to men. It reached its height under the Catholic Church during the decentralized middle ages wherein the competition of a plurality of sovereignties and jurisdictions gave birth to the very "freedoms" liberals were to claim as their own invention after the rise of the Weberian state.
Decentralization of power also came to mark the domestic arrangements of the various European polities. Here feudalism – which produced a nobility rooted in feudal right rather than in state-service – is thought by a number of scholars to have played an essential role (see, e.g., Baechler 1975, 78). Through the struggle for power within the realms, representative bodies came into being, and princes often found their hands tied by the charters of rights (Magna Carta, for instance) which they were forced to grant their subjects. In the end, even within the relatively small states of Europe, power was dispersed among estates, orders, chartered towns, religious communities, corps, universities, etc., each with its own guaranteed liberties. The rule of law came to be established throughout much of the Continent.
The extent of these economic and political "liberties" were expounded upon most exactly by the Spanish Scholastics. Once revolution began to sweep Europe centralizing power and giving rise to the modern nation-state, the natural law tradition became misidentified with Liberalism. While these [classical] liberals did at least in their early formulation attempt to adhere to traditional natural law concepts, they did so by attempting to coax a now all-powerful state into accepting the dictates of natural law, something such states are not inclined to do. It is critical to take hold of the fact that while classical liberals promoted natural law concepts, they did so within the context of legally positivist government, and were not the originators of the values they championed.

Indeed, with the modern nation state we have a bifurcation of the Logos, the natural law, from the apparatus of government. This has led to much confusion and as we have pointed out, requires a reintegration of ideas seen incorrectly as opposing one another.

It should be increasingly clear that our Lord's admonition to 'render to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's' was an appropriate tautological response to His interlocutors. Our Lord was not about to begin the historically nuanced analysis necessary to delineate the political order that most coincides with the nature of reality. His was a simple statement of truth, if X, do what is appropriate for X; if Y, do what is appropriate for Y.

While Catholicism may necessitate a toleration of the state as a lesser evil than actual anarchy, we are making a diabolical mistake if we consider the modern nation-state a good in itself. Logic, history and theology bear witness to the truth that the government which accords most with natural law governs best. The ultimate foundation of all legitimate political power is our Lord and conforms perfectly with His law.

The Perennial Natural Law Synthesis Re-Emerges

And as you would expect, it does so spontaneously.

During our encounter with Actual Anarchy, this blog received inspiration to create an image contrasting those who historically had called themselves "liberals" but whose philosophy logically tends towards a natural law order without Weberian states - what we somewhat loosely refer to as actual anarchy - perhaps most notably Ludwig von Mises, with those who today call themselves "anarchists" but whose philosophy, which we must gather from their actions since their leading philosophers can only be said to include such luminaries as contra-logical feminist anti-music performers, must inevitably lead to the rise of a Leviathan state managed by the very followers of Satan.

Yes, as we've asserted before, we believe that if libertarianism is going to be successful it will be of necessity a thick libertarianism.

This image, which we will revisit, leads to many insights. Not least of which is that, since man is inherently non-omniscient, a la Hayek and Catholic theology, it is easy for us to become too narrowly focused on some particulars to the overlooking of others. While this seeming problem is actually its own solution when the beauty of an order based on private property rights and individual responsibility is delineated, this tendency also explains why many arguments you have with your friends may only be semantic. That is to say, while the logical content of your arguments are actually the same, because different words are used to identify the one and same concrete realities, and/or the same word is used by each party to identify two very different realities an apparent conflict exists where there is none. Because groups are no more than the aggregation of behavior of individuals, the entire history of thought becomes mired in the same problem.


However, as both Austrians and Catholics assert, there is only one logos, one logic, one truth. And so, any apparent contradiction can be resolved dialectically, which Chris Matthew Sciabarra in his book Total Freedom: Towards a Dialectical Libertarianism, calls "the art of context keeping."

Who are the real anarchists? Who are the real liberals? What is anarchism? What is liberalism?

Or, as we have asked before, which way actual anarchy?

Then, our Ignatian discernment made everything clear. Our image was missing the synthesis of the thesis and anti-thesis of Anarchy-Liberal tension.

As we have argued before, the Austrian economists are the rightful heirs to the long Catholic natural law tradition. Even Murray Rothbard admits as much in his Economic Thought Before Adam Smith. When the Catholic Church recovers from Her current miseries She will discover the same.

And thus, the image is completed. (Click image for full size.)

*By "Catholic Church" we should be clear that we are referring to the former part of the Church that still self-identifies as Catholic but has substantially abandoned all or integral parts of Her doctrine. Obviously the Church, per se, is preserved from all corruption, even if Her human participants are not.

Podcast Names Itself "Actual Anarchy," Causes Actual Anarchy

The folks over at ReadRothbard have recently launched a new podcast, re-branding themselves as the "ActualAnarchy" podcast. In so doing they have actually demonstrated anarchy thereby enacting an entirely new concept, meta-actual anarchy. We will endeavor to explain.

While we firmly assert that the ActualAnarchy blog has been in existence since at least February 9, 2011 (Happy Birthday! - just around the corner) and therefore the originality of our use of this name supersedes that of the new kids on the block, we are also of the conviction a la Stephan Kinsella that ideas, words and branding are not, per se, scarce and therefore no such thing as an "intellectual" property right exists. We'll let Stephan make this a teaching moment. And while we don't even have to use quotes, we will do so out of courtesy instead of compulsion:

"Like the magically-reproducible lawnmower, ideas are
not scarce. If I invent a technique for harvesting cotton,
your harvesting cotton in this way would not take away the
technique from me. I still have my technique (as well as my
cotton). Your use does not exclude my use; we could both
use my technique to harvest cotton. There is no economic
scarcity, and no possibility of conflict over the use of a
scarce resource. Thus, there is no need for exclusivity."

And because we actually do believe in the merits of a natural law based social order, we will stand by this conviction by not attempting to disallow the homonymity of the podcast with our own esteemed blog. We will not even express any snobbish resentment. Though, we will standby our superior originality.

This assertion of rights by the podcast in using the same name as the blog will be respected by the blog of the same name, and both will live up to their libertarian ethos, demonstrating indeed that actual anarchy in this sense is both an objective intellectual concept recognizable by society and a fully attainable reality.

We must become the actual anarchy we wish to see in the world.

Win the Battle for Worry Free Ownership

A recent banner ad provided by Google, a known propaganda source, on this blog featured a car company's assertion that their service plan would help you "win the battle for worry free ownership." It features a trio of Roman soldiers holding various car repair related equipment in their hands.

While even the reliability of such service plans is questionable, it is likely that the vehicle itself you are buying is not actually owned by you. Even if you have the resources to pay for the car outright in the form of cash or investments, you likely financed the car because of artificially low interest rates. The bank, in fact, owns your car. Your cash meanwhile is also owned by the bank, able to loan it out as they see fit and with the advent of bail-ins, not always responsible for returning it to you. If you have chosen to invest your funds in the stock market instead, this too is based on the viability of financial institutions whose long-term solvency is questionable at best. Just ask the former account holders at MF Global. And your ability to make payments on the car in the meantime is dependent upon the continuance of your employer as a going concern.

This is all far from worry-free and far from actual ownership.

A similar ad campaign is seen on Arizona highway PSA signs, imploring you to "join the rebellion against distracted driving." All of this is feeding off the success of the Alex Jones and his spirit of '76 ethos, but in a way that co-opts it towards the ends of existing power structure.

Real worry-free ownership can only come under a full private property regime. As we have revealed previously, this no longer exists to a large extent in the United States.

Some of the political reforms necessary to 'win the battle for true worry free ownership' in the United States include abolition of all property tax and prohibition of imminent domain, repeal of all income and death taxes, and the restoration of free-banking and elimination of the Federal reserve.

We have covered in detail the implications of these policy proscriptions on Actual Anarchy and will continue to do so. The source of these ideas can be found here. Please browse our previous article for details.

Trump Can Deliver, And It's Up to You

Alex Jones' point is well taken. So much of what Trump is doing can diminish the globalists. By defeating the cultural Marxist narrative that there are no such things as selfless truth, honor and beauty to be striven for, that hard work is out of date and it's easier just to go with what you're given, that somehow freedom and Western ideals of justice only benefit white males Trump has given those who wish to see a better future an opening we didn't bargain for, a chance perhaps many of us didn't even deserve.

This is the higher way of a just and merciful God.

But none of this comes without our cooperation. We have a free will. As quickly as Trump reduces our taxes, the next administration can raise them. And Trump's movement itself is up for grabs. Will it be turned against the apparent better instincts that have momentarily reawakened in response to an electoral victory we were told was impossible and parlayed by the globalist into their lower purpose? Or will you, every one of you, turn back to your Creator, reawaken to the higher calling the mainstream anti-culture, anti-education and anti-media has with the drip, drip, drip of fake news and false ideals like Chinese water torture slowly deadened in your conscious mind?

The truth is you don't have to be perfect to strive for perfection. If you don't know where to start, take that risk you've been afraid to take but keeps returning to your mind. Accept that if you fail, you will also grow and will find the eventual opportunity and contentment you in your current state of inertial fear didn't even realize was possible. Throw a Hail Mary pass and catch it yourself. Better yet, say a Hail Mary, 25 of them.

No one can save us if our only desire is to sit back and relax. You must cooperate with your salvation. You have a soul; you have a destiny. If you don't take it for yourself, you will never have it.

Trump can deliver, if you deliver.
