Independence of the Individual
Basking in the Dusk of Independence Day
Just can’t let go of that Independence Day buzz, dear reader. We spent time watching and hearing all the fireworks, those symbols of rebellion, and appreciating the fireworks of those ex-colonists, who thumbed their noses at the world’s largest military force of the day.
Milton, Are You Crazy?
Vegetables do not call vegetable versions of home land security, or the sheriff on each other. And Americans do not do that either. Citizens of the Untied State (cotus), well; that is something different isn’t it? Cotus’es are being trained as group-think scared of their shadow wusses, to spy on their neighbors, and call the *authorities* when they observe something suspicious. Note the monitors at the local Wal-Mart, withvideo starring home land czar Janet (Waco killer) Reno.
Now what would an American of the 1780’s do?
Does the term *mind your own business* fit in? How about * Do you need a hand with that?*
So, as you ponder the challenges of every day life, consider how YOU will make a difference. Will you make an anonymous phone call, or will you get to know your neighbor, and pitch in? Will you work independently to solve problems, at the absolute lowest local level possible, or submit cotus-like information into a nation wide database to be used against other individuals that you never took the time to meet, or greet? Do you fear people that are a little different than you, or welcome the opportunity to learn from them?
