To Protect People from the Effects of Folly is To Fill the World With Fools
Consequences are real.
Consequences are just.
Reality is just.
Does it always make sense? Certainly not to me. And that may be my limitation speaking on this topic, a limitation that pushes me to always try to make sense of everything.
Sometimes it’s okay to just sit back and to realize there are things out of my power.
I don’t want people to become obedient sheep under a bad shepherd. I don’t want people to live life in fear. I don’t want to be ruled by fear-mongers. I don’t want the air to be choked by their fear-filled diatribes, whether they be politician, pharmaceutical company, or media conglomerate. They all have something to sell, and it’s fear that so helps them sell it. How badly they need our fear. Whether to provide them that, is entirely your choice.
I do not acquiesce.
I want so much more.
I will live as righteous and as just of a life as I know how. All the days of my life, I will demand better of myself and give more of myself. I will be more devoted to being more excellent and giving more and giving better to those who enter into my orbit.
I don’t know where that leads to, but it won’t lead bad places. I know that much.
And if I don’t do that, I know there will be consequences.
If I encounter wisdom on my path and I am not obedient to the wise words spoken to me, I know what the outcome of that is.
I don’t need it spelled out for me.
I don’t know how it works. I know that it works though.
Do bad, you end up in a bad way. Do good, you end up in a good way.
Call it what you must to make sense of it. I’m okay not making sense of it. It’s just how things tend to work.
A wise reader sent me a quote describing reality, a true statement about cause and effect in life. “To protect people from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools.” -Herbert Spencer
We have not reached the pinnacle of life. There is no state of perfection that has been achieved in our midst. It is silly to place mystical power in the hands of a health department, in the hands of a politician, or in the hands of an economist. They might want you to imagine that a mysticism surrounds them, a cloud of godly omniscience and omnipotence. They may want that. That’s silly though. It’s even sillier when we can use a litmus test of reality and see that there is no reality there that affirms the sense of putting mystical powers in the Faucis, the Newsoms, and the Gateses of the world.
Fauci: “He Who Works With The Sickle”
Fauci is a surname meaning “he who works with the sickle” or “he who makes the sickle.” A sickle is a thing of splendor, for with it one may reap a harvest with so much more ease than with bare hands. Like any tool, it can be used for good. For great even. Just like one’s intellect can be used for good or ill, one’s medical training can be used for good or ill, one’s access in government ban be used for good or ill.
The grim reaper carries the sickle. The sickle is then a sign of death as well. The Soviet Union used the hammer and sickle as the sign of their sick form of government. More than 100 million died over the Century of the Great State at the hands of their own state, under governments that claimed to operate for the well-being of the people. Regimes that virtue signaled most loudly about their care for the downtrodden were most guilty of this. All that was needed was for populations to allow such a silly thing as concentrating power in the hands of the government to take place. Power over ones
