Wake up, sleepwalker

Ben Domenech’s monologuing is usually worth your time, but his recent discourses on Fox might pique Mad Christian’s particular interest. While there is plenty to cause alarm in Domenech’s “The American Crisis,” he does offer hope and challenges his viewers to wake up.

In one commentary, Domenech reflects on the Obama era campaign called “The Life of Julia,” warning that the current administration, under the cover of the pandemic, is picking up where Obama left off.

“The Life of Julia” summarized, probably too well, the hollowness of a life dependent on the State. Writing at CNN, William Bennett notes: “Julia’s entire life is defined by her interactions with the state. Government is everywhere and each step of her life is tied to a government program. Notably absent in her story is any relationship with a husband, family, church, or community, except a ‘community’ garden where she works post-retirement. Instead, the state has taken their place and is her primary relationship.”

While Progressive politicians may think it is just to have everyone provided for by government, a little bit of thought reveals that such dependancy makes you slave to the whims of the rich and powerful. It would seem a few folks have done their homework, though, with a recent survey finding that a whole lot of Americans don’t want assistance from the government and would rather be left alone. 

We know for realz that our readers are awake! It has been exciting to see the Mad Christian movement come to life, and we know that many of you are already fighting back. We can remember Nehemiah, who wrote: 

“For they all were trying to make us afraid, saying, “Their hands will be weakened in the work, and it will not be done.” Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands.” 

If you want some inspiration, Joy Pullman compiled a list at The Federalist with heaps of ways you can “shake wide awake.”  Run along home, Sanballat, we got work to do.
