A MESSAGE FROM A FORMER SLAVE TO MILLIONS OF AMERICANS ABOUT TO BECOME SLAVES
Whether people recognize it or not, we are living in the most desperate time in our history as a nation. Our country is crumbling at every level under a Marxist/communist agenda that has been working towards this end for decades. Perhaps it’s time to reconsider the merit in all this insistence on our taking the “high road,” and avoiding “confrontation” as we are being pushed farther and farther down what Friedrich Hayek called “The Road to Serfdom.”
Millions of Americans, including the most conservative and patriotic, have been paralyzed by the media and aggressive woke culture into the position of sheep waiting to be shackled, sheared and/or slain. They think that talk alone, wishful thinking, going to the polls, or dependence on politicians to do the right thing is going to save us from what the politically-empowered Left has decided will be our fate in the very near future. Many such well-intentioned, well-meaning and well-wishing folks are especially opposed to anyone and anything that can be perceived in any way to be “confrontational” in the face of all this.
Frederick Douglass (1817-1895), escaped slavery at the age of 21 to become a leader in the abolitionist movement, a newspaper editor, and widely read author. He also became one of America’s greatest statesmen; influential in the Republican presidential administrations of Lincoln and Grant and a federal office holder under President Rutherford B. Hayes. A devout Christian, he knew more from personal experience and his etensive study of history, about slavery, the danger of corrupt politics, how tyranny works and man’s capacity for evil than most men who have ever lived. He had a message for Americans that desperately needs to be heard today. He said:
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress … Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate confrontation, are people who want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters.”
