The Problem of the Ents
I often see bloggers or writers around the web that I admire and follow mention how unbelievable it is that as a collective group patriots, constitutionalists, conservatives, Christians or what have you are not up in arms and already fighting against the oppression and tyranny we seem to be assaulted with daily.
The government takes our money through taxes, fees, or fines and spends it on things that directly harm our very way of life. They then borrow more money handing us the bill which just means more taxation in loss of value and future interest payments. On top of it all while spending our money against us it then demands we follow it's rules and violate our rights of association, speech, etc. as a condition to spending our money.
The oppression seems so simple when written down in black and white but the reality is that in this day and age no one works together because no one is entirely an ally to be trusted.
If you are familiar with Tolkien you understand the background of the Ent analogy. These giants were long the allies of the so called good peoples yet once evil had been forced into retreat they suffered centuries of wrongdoing. Their very way of life had been diminished and restricted. To fully join one side of the coming conflict meant in some way they would be supporting their own eventual end. Either by direct attack or the long slow death of a thousand paper cuts. Their race had been divided by gender, the Entwives were long gone. Few respected their beliefs or cared for their needs and they argued among themselves over what action to take.
I often find myself wondering if the old Ents weren't arguing about which potential ally was actually worse than the other and could not come to an agreement so finally chose to do nothing until their limbs were forced directly.
The problem as I see it is there is no right path for any of us. We are divided so thoroughly by the sheer number of threats that no one can accurately determine how to resist. Or at least no one can agree on which threat needs to be met first. One is willing to compromise on one threat but not on another while their potential ally is unwilling to bend where the first threat is concerned.
Personally I see the largest threat as political correctness, Feminism and the Multi-Cult. I find it hard to follow or agree with anyone who accepts these ideologies in even small amounts while they fight back against some other injustice. To me the very injustice they claim to be against springs from the multi-cult religion and to ignore it negates any victory and cancels out the labor to achieve it. They talk about ability and then turn around and wave the flag of mythical equality. They say we need to stand together and then openly pander to one group over another so they can claim adherence to part oft he very ideology they are fighting against.
I don't know what the solution is. Far too often it seems in supporting one action or cause you are against eventually leads to actually supporting another you know is wrong. Even indirectly.
It's a problem that I see no clear solution to and one that leaves us like the old made-up Ents. Unable to decide, confused by the choices and standing around doing nothing as a group.
Until our hands are forced at least we can...
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!!
