THE PEOPLE OF LAS VEGAS

October 2, 2017

The people of Las Vegas can one day look back on these days with satisfaction and encouragement even as their grief continues.

We see nothing but mutual comfort and aid, compassion and  sympathy  that is proven by   courage under fire as they helped each other,   protected each other, offering their own blood to those who lost so much of their own.

As the crowd was hiding and  running away as best they could,  the first responders,  the policemen!,  were running towards the gunfire.    The people of Las Vegas can look upon their officials with pride and gratitude.

Some of the facts are known.    Many questions are yet unanswered.    President Trump articulated what I and many Americans were thinking in his speech on Monday, so I don’t   need to give my opinion.

Our Leftist entertainment-news media practically applauded the act, mocking the character and voting habits they supposed the audience of a country music festival would have and  hoping that the Trump supporters among the audience would be the ones to die.

We’re eager to find out what this man’s motivation could have been.

I hope we also try to discover what has become of the moral climate of our country to allow even the possibility of an American mass murderer to act.  Several decades ago when I was in school,  some of my friends took their guns or rifles to school for after-school meetings of the ROTC.   One time I asked my friend if he played saxophone.  He said,  “No.”      Then he opened up his case and showed me his rifle.

The moral climate was different then.     The character  of the American people was different then.

If it can bend one way,  can it bend back the other way?

CODA TO THE LAST (LUDDITE) POST

October 2, 2017

The last post was decidedly anti-technology,  even as I use and enjoy all our digital technology; and yet,  truthfully,   I have never discovered a technological “achievement’  that was not a mixed blessing for us  humans.  A very mixed blessing, actually, with the mix almost always bringing more unfortunate results than blessings.

So why is mankind continually inspired to increase the power and the reach of technology?    Why does the Enemy of God and Mankind lead us further and further away from living naturally and in harmony with our planet and further and further into  an interconnected digital and artificial world?

Oh, we are easily led.  Easily convinced that we can make the world a better place with electrical connections and artificial living.   We – Mankind – can solve all our problems, with science, with technology, with . . .  well,  many of us remember the DuPont ad that told us  “Better Living Through chemistry!”

But we have a very precarious dependence upon all this technology.    (See Puerto Rico today.)    This all seems to have a life of its own.   Where is this all leading?    Why do we keep getting new inspirations from  “out of the blue”?

In other words,  why does the devil need this technology?

Because, the great Enemy of God and Mankind is NOT omniscient,   all-powerful,  all-knowing, almighty.     To spoil this beautiful   planet earth and its inhabitants  he needs help;  technological help.    technological  help to see everything, to see everyone, to know everything that’s going on;   to know where we go and what we do and what we are thinking.

I wrote of Catalonia a few posts ago.

The Catalans have voted overwhelmingly to leave Spain and be their own independent country.   This goes counter to the great mandate to create a one worldwide totalitarian state.    It’s not pretty over there, before and after the election.   Spain is appealing to Brussels,  to the EU.   The desire for self-government must be stopped.   So stay tuned.

So that’s the coda,  the little addition to yesterday’s post:    Evil exists.  The Evil One exists.    And his method for managing  “all these human beings”  is the tyranny of a totalitarian state.

Communism/Socialism/Progressivism  is the enemy of free and independent human beings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GATEWAY DISCONNECTED, INHUMANLY SPEAKING

October 2, 2017

Out of time:   this is a post that is unedited, unchecked, perhaps ill – considered, hastily written…..

(Some of you may know what a “gateway” is on your laptop of PC.  It’s the way it connects to your modem and thus to the Internet.   My main PC, my communication/ research/ study/  entertainment/  information  “gate”  was cut off by a Trojan and/or virus;  repaired;  brought back to the repairers,  who cannot understand why my “gateway”  is now missing.”)

(Help, anyone?   I am NOT going to go into the DOS window and enter new numbers.   Yet.   I don’t think.   And I’m reluctant to spend mucho bucks – again – to have another repairer look at it, and not know what to do.  Again.)

I’m thankful for my little laptop which is not up and running.

During this time my little California family came for a visit.   There was NON-STOP activity.   Even late into the night.  If activity “stops”  around midnight or so –that’s  THREE 0’CLOCK  in the morning here in the Far North.

I have to run off to class pretty soon — a not very- well- prepared- for- class – but the class is very smart and they’ll do the thinking work for me.

So it is that after this afternoon class,  it looks like I’ll have my first chance to slow down and think a little,  and maybe catch up on news and thoughts  (random thoughts)  here in the Spruce Tunnel.

Meanwhile,   please consider this thought taken from the writings of Solange Hertz.    She summarizes my thoughts about this modern age,  this oh, so inhuman “modern age.”

(Me and Ms. Hertz) :     There were three events that we know of in human history that brought us back to the Stone Age.

One is the persistent story of Atlantis, and specifically, the reason for its destruction, following the unimaginably increased wickedness and hubris of the Atlanteans.   What was their crime?    It was the development of artificial technology based upon the use of “electricity”  or “energy”   generated from some sort of crystal technology.   (Just from hints given to us in ancient writings. by people who had long since lost knowledge of that technology.)    The Atlanteans became dependent upon that technology in their everyday lives, and though it produced wonders of communication,  material wealth,  tranportation,  etc.,  the people forgot their connection to the earth they lived upon and the Creator who made it and them.

So –  boom! – something happened to Atlantis.   Was it a thunderbolt from Heaven –  along the lines of Thor?   Or did the Creator allow their amazing civilization to be destroyed  by the very technology which created their (artificial and godless)  civilization?  Did their own technology become too powerful to control?

Did that catastrophe set off the events that produced the worldwide Flood that is recorded in every single native tradition on every single inhabited continent?

Second event that brought us back to the Stone Age:    The Tower of Babel.

Long derided as a superstitious mythical event that ignorant ancients used to explain the existence of many “languages,”   what followed the building of the Tower of Babel was no mere “confusing of the languages, ”  but rather a worldwide “influence”  that affected the minds of human beings causing an inability to communicate and the subsequent development of human cultures that were foreign to all the other new human cultures.  It goes far beyond just language, but involves varying approaches to reality,  mindsets,  attitudes,  ways of thinking,  mores, understandings . . .

And since one small group of people could not understand or appreciate another small group of people,  small groups,  families,  small clans,  moved off into other territory where they could be safer . . .  and rule over places  far distant lands.

Mankind could no longer gather together to produce whatever technology was inferred by “the building of a Tower”  and the grand desire for mankind to “Make A Name For Himself,”  which is, by the way,  the meaning of the words used to describe this endeavor.

The Tower of Babel was emblematic of the domination of the world by a single governing power that  was sufficient onto its own self.   No god needed, thank you very much.    The Tower of Babel represents an outright rejection of God the Creator –  and the use of technology made this possible.

For a time.

The world seems to be broken up into a divided, warring mess.

Of course,  one must eventually and inevitably come to the conclusion that humanity without its Creator is a dead humanity.   Dead and condemned (since humans have a never-ending soul their is a never-ending death . . .  also called Hell)   It is the abode of an evil entity,  the Enemy of God,  who hates humans with a passionate,  supernaturally strong hatred.  This enemy wants us ruined and “dead.”

So what do we have now?   Technology.   A world dependent upon technology away from and apart from the planet earth, which actually could provide everything humans need to live and to thrive.

Again, enter technology.   A wedge between us and our earth.  A wedge between us and our Creator.      Electricity – based upon moving electrons.  Delivered to us at frequencies which are harmful to the human body.   At strengths  which can kill us.   Generated by harmful processes,  not the least of which is nuclear-generated electricity which  we are suffering from (though so far we can ignore that)  and that our planet will suffer from for thousands of years to come.

Electrical devices which are way too costly and which harm us a nd interfere with our biological rhythms that could have kept us healthy.

And electricity which make it possible for us to be surveilled,  controlled,  and eliminated by the gathering world power – inspired, of course,  again,  by that great Enemy of God who wishes us . . .  dead.

. . . . .

And just how will our near-extinction event occur, the one that will of necessity bring us back to another STone AGe?
