You may have forgotten Rodney King. To refresh your memory, he was the focus of the nation’s attention on March 3, 1991 when he was beaten silly by Los Angeles Police during a traffic stop. The situation was presented as if the police were just randomly beating up some poor black man. The incident led to mass riots in L.A., and massive property damage and injuries. The National Guard had to be called out to quell the riots.
The reality of the situation was that Rodney was a large man and very strong. He was under the influence of alcohol and led the police on a high speed chase. If you’ve never been on the chasing end of a high speed chase, consider the fact that the person doing that is a.) risking their life, and b.) in a very intense adrenalin pumping situation. Once they got him pulled over, a person in a neighboring home turned on their video camera and captured much of the event.
Rodney got out of the car and became confrontational with the police. He was too strong for them, and so they put him down with billy clubs. The media played this up as if the police were brut thugs beating up black men indiscriminately just for the fun of it. The L.A.P.D. found the officers acted within department guidelines. Now, it could be debated guidelines and protocols needed some modification, but as long as the police operated within those guidelines, it’s the system the has to be subject to scrutiny and criticism.
Rodney went on to get a $3million settlement from the city of Los Angeles which he promptly frittered away on drugs etc. Being a product of government education, he never was taught how to manage money, and neither were his parents likely (don’t know for sure). During his spendthrift decline into a further abyss, Rodney was arrested again on domestic abuse of his wife.
During this time, Rodney lamented; “Can’t we all just get along?” Was this question directed to himself, or just to others? When you point an accusatory finger at others, you have three pointing back at you. The Rodney King riots were an impetus for Black Lives Matter (which is actually Bolshevik Lives Matter – because they don’t care about conservative blacks). Patrice Cullors is one of three people who co-founded BLM, and she is on You Tube video declaring herself and her associates as being “trained Marxists”.
What is a Marxist? In a loose sense, it is a person who is a disciple of Karl Marx. Karl Marx was a slovenly, lazy, unproductive whiner who hated the Bible, Christ, Christians and objective authority. His goal in life was to overturn the existing order – to remake the contemporary individual man into a man of the collective state. In other words, he wanted to overthrow the existing order in favor of a new order. Wealthy people helped finance him to keep him going so he never had to work. He just hung around the house neglecting his children and deriding his wife.
So, “Why can’t we all just get along?” The bottom line, is that we are all sinners, and that means we sin against God first, and secondly against our fellow man. As long as we are doing that, getting along is going to be very difficult. It becomes more complex when people gather in groups to force others to go along with their ideas of what is right and/or necessary.
Making someone work in order to pay taxes to finance something they abhor (doesn’t make any difference what they abhor) is wrong. Within that context of understanding, there are certain societal agreements that must be honored in order for society to survive with relative freedom, or become a slave state.
What are some of those things? The Libertarians would have you believe that all will be well if one does not do his neighbor “harm”. That sounds good until you start to define “harm”. Is anyone harmed when the act of abortion takes place? Libertarians would say it’s up to the individual (Note: there are some Libertarians such as Ron Paul who oppose abortion.). We know for a fact, and even pro abortion people will admit it; something is alive in the womb before an abortion, and it’s dead after the abortion.
Pro-abortionists care less about the aftermath when a woman leaves the office of Planned Parenthood (or whomever) and becomes morose and despondent and even suicidal. Frequently these women in order to justify their act will become particularly militant in support of abortion. Additionally, some women will suffer a perforated uterus. Some will even die from the procedure. Many suffer significant bleeding after the fact. Some will never be able to have children. It is reasonable to assess that some “harm” has been done in the womb and to the participant(s).
Abortion is probably the most polarizing issue in America today, and people who oppose the implementing of abortion don’t think their tax dollars should be spent that way. The proabortionists do not agree, and force those people through group political action to pay for it. In the process Planned Parenthood is enriched at the expense of those opponents of abortion. If we were to put the shoe on the other foot and make the proponents of abortion pay for pregnancy counseling centers run by Christians, the outcry would be enormous. So, what do you call that? Hypocrisy.
So, “Why can’t we all get along?” Sin, including hypocrisy, abortion, political manipulation and theft of funds through taxation and forced labor are a few examples. Financing abortion comes from the Socialist’s mindset, and is just the camel’s nose in the tent. From there, there are numerous subsidies that have plagued America and lowered our moral standards and our general standards of culture and living. Government supplying needles for drug injections might be another obvious decline in society with, of course, the heart rending justification that people who are this far down into the pit of society at least deserve to have clean needles to avoid diseases.
Government give away of food, health care, medicine, housing etc. are all a part of this insidious approach to a society that ultimately becomes dependent upon the government, and therefore loses its independence and its “self – esteem” as the saying goes. Really, how confident in life can you be when you have to rely upon others for your daily bread? Are these things a “harm”? Cui bono? (who benefits?). The politicians benefit because they have a built in constituency of dependent people. The party hacks benefit as they push the agenda. The companies and agencies that provide the product and services benefit from the sale of said items.
Then of course as the society declines into a cesspool of immorality, the law enforcement, courts and prisons benefit as they stay busy and employed. This then requires more laws, supervision, counselors, halfway houses, special job training etc. You can see how this can mushroom. Socialism ultimately rules with harshness. There is a saying that “Behind the velvet glove of Socialism is an iron fist.” Hitler taught that; so did Pol Pot, Stalin, Lenin, Idi Amin, Hugo Chavez and so on. One will find out soon enough that Socialism is for the rich and nobody else. Don’t you wonder why the uber rich are constantly pushing socialism? It’s legalized thievery, and guess who gets the spoils of that thievery?
So, “Why can’t we all get along?” Read what’s been written before this, and it should answer your question quite sufficiently. Who’s to blame for all of this? Have you got a mirror handy?
