Ungrateful Lepers

Ungrateful Lepers

Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee.   As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance  and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”

When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.

One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.  He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.

Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?  Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?”  Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” Luke 17: 11-19

A Quiet Stream

It is usually next to a quiet stream or a slow moving river where I do my best thinking. There, deep in the mountains of East Tennessee, next to a quiet stream or river, one can flee the ad nauseam propaganda and lies which pass for opinion or news, and arrive at the truth.

No cellphone, no computer, no iPad, no tablet; nothing that runs on batteries or electricity to distract you and muddy your mind. Just the peace of flowing water, the sweet smell of honeysuckle and blackberries, and your own conscience of mind to arrive at the truth.

I first encountered this blissful, thought-enhancing commune with nature when I was a young man and moved to the mountains of East Tennessee where a creek, a river, and thick woods were but a short walk from my front door. Having been born and raised in the big city, with the constant background noise of traffic and activity obscured my thoughts, I had no idea what clear-thinking was until I moved to the mountains.

The Big Lie: Woke Propaganda as News

It is in this peaceful commune with nature where the mind can sort fact from fiction.

In today’s connected world of the internet and smartphones, fiction, in the service of Woke propaganda, rules supreme.

We as a society are now being told from the unholy halls of congress to the talking head Sodomites on CNN (Communist News Network) that the “greatest threat” to the safety and peace of America comes from “White Supremacy” and “Fascism.”

But is that true?

Just because this lie is repeated ad nauseam 24/7 by the Marxists at Diversity, Inc. doesn’t magically transform fiction into truth.

Last year, in just the City of Chicago, there were over 4,000 non-fatal shootings and 847 murders in 2020.

NONE of these shootings and murders were the work of “White Supremacists” and “Fascists.” NONE.

98% of this horrific violence in Chicago and elsewhere in America is committed by young black males, most of whom are gang members with extensive criminal histories.

Who are the real threats to America?

Nazis? White Supremacists?

Or young black criminals?

A Quiet Stream

In our brave new Orwellian world, your mind is being constantly assaulted and conditioned (brainwashed) by the lunacy and absurdity of Marxist, Woke, Social Justice Propaganda.

To counteract this, I suggest getting away from pervasive technology and finding a quiet stream somewhere in the mountains of East Tennessee to clear your thoughts and come back to reality.

The Truth is out there, but you must first “disconnect” from the propaganda, in order to know it and find it.
