The Death of America. Out with the New - In with the Old.

Updated on November 25, 2013

The changing times

The impending death of America.

Times are changing. We must prepare for it.

Nothing can stop the progression of time, or tide, no matter how much we try.

Be kind to one another, have faith in God, and be wary of men who do us harm in His name.

A revelation for the enlightenment of man:

What fools, we mortals be.
Suffer mankind; and deservedly.

Even the truth, won't set us free.
Fear and deception is our true decree.

Blindness will lead us, to our dismay,
for no one will accept the truth today.

Easier it is, to let guile lead our way.
We can keep our deceit, or 'will' it away.

Open our eyes so we can see
that this is not our true destiny.

Before we falter, and go on astray,
beg God, the truth He display.

(poem by d.william 3/11/11)

Out with the 'new'.....

and in with the 'old'.

This seems to be the plan of the new (old) conservatives.

Unfortunately, as it is with all living things, from the amoeba to the stars (celestial that is), all things must come to an end.

In the real world logic dictates the opposite:

Out with the 'old' - and in with the 'new'.

The Pharaohs, the Greeks, the Romans, all the dictators and tyrants; Egypt, Rome, Russia, Germany (the 3rd Reich), Iran, Libya, Syria, (et al); and the USA - all have either fallen or in the process of falling. There are no exceptions. Nothing will ever continue to survive in its current state of disarray.

Everything we know survives and thrives as long as there is an inherent and consistently harmonious flux and flow. The fluxion of the USA is no longer inherent, consistent, or harmonious.

The human body, when intact, sufficiently nourished, and guarded, will grow and thrive until it withers and dies of old age.

Our nation, combined with all other nations, ultimately make up the global community; and are all living entities that are in the throes of painful changes.

The 'Thrips' of Harmony

When mankind itself becomes the 'thrips' of global harmony without considerations of outcome other than self serving, the host will inevitably be destroyed.

{for anyone not familiar with thrips; they are any of an order (Thysanoptera) of small, to minute, sucking insects most of which feed, often destructively, on plant juices.}.

Without constraint, or control, these 'thrips' will kill their host.

In nature, when any species has unprecedented population growth, and that growth impacts on ecology to the point of causing disharmony, disruption, and destruction of the global process, there must come an antagonist (an opposing force) to put things back in its proper perspective.

When this cleansing eventually happens;

Nature, or God, is not put on trial for murder, but lauded for its role in returning things to its synchronicity.

Mankind imposes itself on this fragile planet and becomes the "thrips of destruction" of the planet and ultimately mankind itself.

We must ask ourselves the ultimate question:

Is this truly the direction we want mankind to follow?

Actuating change

Things must change to preserve humanity itself.

Population must be controlled - but not by wars, starvation, or "death panels", as described by some.

China saw this need several years ago when they mandated their own version of population control, by limiting child birth to one child per family. Other nations must follow this lead.

And of course, America is doing just the opposite.

Causing genetic shifting may be nature's way of doing this deed (the seemingly increase in same sex attractions for example), but when man interferes in an attempt to create a new society, that extreme may be too severe for mankind to survive.

There are safer and more humane ways to control populations without ignorant interference by archaic religious beliefs causing even greater hardships, pain, guilt, as well as physical and emotional suffering. Or as some countries attempt - ethnic "cleansing".

We must find a 'tertium quid': a middle course; or an intermediate component

(..."where there are two systems of law, and two orders of courts, there must be some 'tertium quid' to deal with conflicts of law and jurisdiction" -Ernest Baker).

In this world of an out of control "religious and governmental" consortium that cannot differentiate between need and greed, we set ourselves on a path of destruction without any logical recourse.

Individual beliefs must not be allowed to be the driving force of any nation affecting a global peace and harmony - if for no other reason than to substantiate and ensure our survival as a species.

Reigning in adverse influences

Religious influences can not, and must not, be allowed to trump logic.

What is most troubling, is when we view the wonders of man's creations and his potential impact on our future existence, contrasted with the prospect of losing those wonders to history by the ignorance and selfishness of a few who seem to dictate man's fate.

The knowledge already gained, and that which is yet to be realized; in medicine, communications, space exploration, quantum physics, technology itself, all being exploited by a few for personal gains is appalling and atrocious to anyone that is a humanitarian.

There should be no "profit margins" when innovations have the potential to make this world a virtual paradise for the entire civilization. Such inventions and innovations should be shared with all of mankind instead of being used to feed the "need for greed" by a few.

Trying to rationalize this obsession by calling it "capitalism" or "free trade" will not make it any less evil. If "money" were abolished from all societies, everyone would have the same access to all that there is. The only requirement would be that everyone must contribute to society in some way in order for all to benefit.

Losing all that man has achieved to oblivion, because of the obsessions of a greedy few, is beyond any logical comprehension.

Tying ourselves to the ancient past, instead of learning from it, is sad, wasteful and foolishly childish. Those who cling onto fears, false perceptions, and misconceptions of the past and are willing to "throw out the baby with the dirty bath water" is far beyond rational comprehension as well.

The greatest enemy of man

Mankind is still its own worst enemy.

We must find a way to stop the attacks on our earth, and on ourselves, before it is too late - if not already.

The video below entitled: "She's Alive" tells it all.

It is beautiful, haunting and a dire warning to all.

She "is" still alive, but wounded.

Is she worth dying for?

Earth. She's alive but how much longer?

      I once heard someone say: "People long for the past, are stressed by the present and are afraid of the future." I suppose that fear has made too many people like a deer in the headlights. Great hub, very interesting.

      thanks for reading and your comments. It is hard to believe such ignorance still exists in our 'civilized' country. ?? But typical for the southern baptists (and others like them) who will die hating. Their God should welcome them into their heaven with opens arms, don't ya think?

      Thanks for your comments. Love your last sentence: "the globe is Rome and mankind is the fiddler". great analogy.

      Hmm...... Valid comment. What ceases to adapt dies.

      I read this recently. I think it explains why America will cease to matter in a decade or two

      "A predominately-white church in Mississippi has turned away a black couple, who intended to have their wedding ceremony there, due to their skin color.

      The pastor of First Baptist Church of Crystal Springs in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, canceled Charles and Te’Andrea Wilson’s planned wedding one day before the ceremony, arguing that the church had never hosted black couples since it was opened in 1883."

      Scary, but true. Thanks for adding your voice and vision to the subject. Indeed, it is the pure thinkers like you who can 'see' into a future resulting from wanton actions. The naysayers talk about ebb and flow (relative to global warming) - trouble is the flow valve is getting narrower and narrower in all respects. I fear nothing will be done to reverse man's mess. The globe is Rome and mankind is the fiddler. Nero was a novice.

      Very profound hub D.william. It's not an easy subject. We all know we need to make sacrifices, yet so few do - voluntarily.

      I still think success depends on working together, which doesn't seem conducive to a culture of individualism.

      Enjoyed the videos too BTW.

      Thanks for being the first to read and comment. Your input is welcome and appreciated. I would venture to guess that your estimate of "many" people is more likely "most" people.

      No-one likes change but we also know that "everything changes, but nothing changes", especially in the political arena. The names, faces, and parties change but nothing every changes in Washington. This hub was supposed to be about that premise, but i got a little carried away, as usual. L.O.L.

      This is a very insightful hub. All civilizatins grow and change. Change is quit natural but to not accept impending change and growth is indeed quite perilous. Many people are indeed afraid of growth and change. As the saying goes either there is change or there is atrophy and/or death!
