Is There Anything Left to Fight For?

The Common Sense Show
Less than 10% of Americans stand up to tyranny on a daily basis. I estimate that about half of the country is acting like they are dumber than a box of rocks and are content to simply live in ignorant bliss for as long as it is possible to do so. What about the rest of us? For those who know what is at stake and refuse to do anything, are condemning our children to live in a hellish nightmare for which they will someday hate us for.
What I can understand is that many Americans are unwilling to stand up to tyranny and do what’s right so long as they have their basic needs provided for. I think many parents are forgetting one thing, what about your children’s basic needs and their futures? If you will not fight for yourself, would you not at least fight for your children?
American Parents Have Failed Their Children
As an American father, I am part of a select group who has failed in his duty as a parent. Our primary responsibility, as parents, is to protect our children from harm and to provide for their future. On both accounts American parents, as a group, have failed miserably in fulfilling these responsibilities to our children. We have left our children vulnerable to the unfolding tyranny that is sweeping our country.
Most of us have gone along to get along. Many of us have seen the problems that have overtaken our country and we have consciously chosen to ignore these problems. And now, our children are paying a steep price for our apathy and ignorance. I am left wondering if our children are not worth fighting for?
My soon-to-be teenager asked me the other day if there was really an Illuminati that ran the world. Interestingly, I have never used that term in describing the banksters that have hijacked our government, so I knew that he did not hear that term from me. As it turned out, my son’s curiosity comes from the questions that many of his peers are asking at school. Young people’s interest in the Illuminati and their hand signals is a trendy thing being discussed today, and I can tell you that most of our children reject what they perceive to be the Illuminati. But more importantly, many of our children are rejecting the values of the adults in their lives because many children do not view adults as the guardians of their world as I once viewed my parents when I was growing up. They often see today’s adults as sell-outs to a world that offers no hope. The hidden message behind my son’s question is centered around his curiosity as to whether his dad is fighting against bad people that will do bad things to children when they grown up. One day, I expect my adult son to ask me what I did in the war against tyranny? What will you tell your children when they ask you the same question?
