The Collapse Is Now & We Must Embrace It.Submitted by Ranger_Will on Sun, 09/16/2012 - 22:46
While running through the posts, comments, and links here on the Daily Paul it seems that there is a prevailing sense of doom. Many of us are projecting the fast approaching event horizon of a colossal black hole.
This calamity comes in many forms: a new stock market crash, a Third World War, a sudden authoritarian declaration of marshal law, and the end of the dollar. These events might be brought about by a false flag event by secret gov't black ops, or perhaps simply a world gone mad on it's obsession with continuing bad economic policies.
But might I present another argument?
These things have already occurred.
As much as we might hate to admit it, let's take a step back for a moment and view our world. We do not possess the lens of history which affords me so much clarity in my studies of the American Revolution and other world changing events. But if there is one thing that I hope to have my fellow DPs realize it is that we need to stop worrying.
Many of us in the light of Ron Paul's failed campaign have regressed into despair, cynicism, and infighting all while trying to predict when the fall will come and in what shape. This however shows our true ignorance because unlike the figures in the chronicles of history, our world is in constant flux. Is it not possible that the "fall" we are all waiting for is already taking place?
I believe that this is more likely than not.
But now is not the time to panic. Now is the time to fight! We must give our all while the remnants of society is still largely intact. Who knows...maybe history will see us as the greatest generation for bringing us back from the abyss? And even if we cannot bring the changes we all seek, I feel that going out fighting is by far superior than cowering in a corner.
Let the Liberty movement be remembered for it's audacity to the challenge the odds, and I GUARANTEE you that once the phoenix rises, those still around will remember us as the voice that was ignored. When the walls come down, it will be the safe philosophy of individual freedom that will have best withstood the onslaught.
And it will upon our model that the next generation will be built.
So my challenge to you is this: let's make the new foundation for the better world today and plant the seeds of the future so that they might grow back once the spring finally arrives.
Let no one's epitaph read: "A good soul, but died in vain."
