As my older brother lay dying of terminal cancer/COPD; he told his daughters: “I will not go gentle into that good night – I will fight,” and proceeded to live that statement day after day when doctors predicted he would be dead. If there can only be one end; then it matters all the more how you face it – so I’m returning to the battlefield of human worth with a renewed commitment. And . . . Oh, yes; I’ve been pulling my punches with the previous books – it’s time to go toe-to-toe with our evil times. This book is an in-your-face challenge to those people who refuse to show their face: And if they won’t come into the light – I’ll bring the light to them.
If someone were to ask you to do something; if there were even the smallest chance of it injuring your child – you would say; “No, I won’t gamble with the life of my child.” But when technologies inherently risk all life on earth – you are willing to take that small chance; for a small benefit.
If words like “Extinction,” and “Apocalypse” are written too big for anything but videogames and movies: you need to step back a bit.
We now have the power to do incalculable things — and we have authorities who are eager to use that power.
Government isn’t impersonal; it’s personal. It’s a matter of life and death. . . January 15, 2022.
A financial expert once used this example:
Two men; both working the same job, at the same pay, each buy a house.
One man pays the only minimum monthly mortgage payment and puts the rest in the bank – the other uses all his additional money to pay off the principle.
They both lose their jobs.
The first man uses the money in the bank to continue paying his mortgage – the other loses his house: he thought the equity was in his house; it was in him.
We live in a country where the government believes that spending money will fix everything: but when we run out of money — we’ll lose everything.
Our country’s equity is in its people – not its policies — and there’s a pink slip coming in our pay packet.
