Can I leave the Daily Paul in your hands?Submitted by Michael Nystrom on Fri, 08/22/2014 - 02:12
If I had to go away and do some other things. Can I trust you to be a grownup now? Can I trust the passengers of the ark not to attack one another?
I think of the Daily Paul as the watering hole in an arid desert. All the animals come around to drink - the lions and other animals of prey, as well as the zebras, and deer or whatever. They don't attack each other - not at the watering hole. It is one thing that they all have in common. They all have thirst.
At the Daily Paul, we all have thirst. The thirst is good natured, and well intentioned. Those are the kinds of people that I like to see, and that is why it hurts so much when that is taken advantage of. But that seems to be the way of our hypercompetitive world. Aim for the weak spot, and then plunge.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
If anyone is going to change it, it has to be me. I am the captain of this ark, and the ark is as real as can be.
This is a real feeling, expressed as best as possible in a Hollywood movie. It is a real feeling. I've felt it. But in this day and age of snark, how does one express it without getting snickered at?
We're all thirsty. We're thirsty for something that we barely even know exists. It has been so far submerged by popular culture that it is nearly dead, so fully twisted and distorted by consumerism that we barely know its true meaning, if at all.
It is love. That is why I put a flashing banner at the top of the website, repeating it. There is joy in repetition.
A heart of peace. A heart of gold. A heart of love. Strive for that.
Even if you simply strive for it, I know that I can leave the site in your hands, while I go do what I need to do.
Can you remember the Message? Can you be it before you preach it?
