Independence Day

He who is often rebuked, and hardens his neck,
Will suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

Proverbs 29:1

The traumatic impact of the 2020 event cannot be underestimated. The changes wrought on the experience of our daily lives have occurred with such break-neck speed that reckoning with them has left most people in a state of shock, chagrin, and awe. No matter who you are, today you feel more isolated, more under-threat, and more unsure of tomorrow’s norms than ever before.

Some say that the global elite are preparing us for something they aren’t telling us about. Others say that they are telling us, and we’re just not listening. Others point out that incompetence far outweighs malice in these equations.

What matters most is to see that what you see is contrary to what you are being told, and that is further contrary to what actually is.

What you can remind yourself of in these gray and latter days is that you have no need to fear that which is true. You won’t be hurt more by opening your eyes, and you won’t avoid being hurt by squeezing them shut. Nightmares are always less frightening in the bright light of the morning sun.

Scarcity is jet fuel to irrational behavior. The scarcity that we face right now is a lack of the stabilities most of us grew up learning to expect from modern life. In this famine, we can only expect that the number of things that don’t make sense are going to skyrocket. Flattery will not help us here. Such words are a net for your own feet, spread in the leisure of your own ignorance. To say that something is good when it is not only ensures it will stay bad.

There is no reason to believe that these are not the best days of your life. How could it not be better now that you have learned to cast out the lies and embrace the independence of thinking for yourself?

Till angel cry and trumpet sound,
The Mad Christian
