My article yesterday on the gate being wide elicited the following comment:
Freedom is an illusion. I know that’s a cliche but it seems possible to say it now with clear understanding of what that means rather than sounding like a philosophical jackass.
When the forces of stupidity are this immense they are unfortunately probably insurmountable. Withdrawing from society while hoping the farce collapses in on itself seems the most sensible course of action. Luckily I’ve been an introvert my whole life and am used to entertaining myself indoors.
To which came the following reply:
“Withdrawing from society while hoping the farce collapses in on itself seems the most sensible course of action.”
Likewise, thinking that you’re going to be able to ‘lay low’ and ride this one out is an illusion as well. They will come for you. You will have to pick a side. “When they came for […], I did not speak up…”
You fail to understand: in a spiritual battle, there are no civilians. God tests us all. You are trying to walk through that wide, easy gate thinking you are going to somehow Dodge the coming battle.
