Since the fall, every one of us has a bit of a rebel inside always trying to come out, or break out, and maybe even take over. And oftentimes when we see a successful rebel in some area of life, we admire that successful rebellion, and the little rebel within us is strengthened and begins to live vicariously the life of that successful rebel in view.
Popular rebels popularize rebellion. It becomes a competitive thing.
The stand-out, the one who is different, becomes the one most admired and the one we all wish we could be like, and the one the young begin to adulate, and imitate, and follow.
I have been a victim of this rebel-admiration myself. I remember fondly Sammy Davis Jr. because of his fantastic talent; but I never thought of him as any kind of rebel, or being particularly rebellious. But he was.
I always felt, and still feel, that Sammy Davis Jr. had more natural talent in his little finger than anyone in Hollywood or on stage anywhere today. He danced like he was weightless; he sang with rich, golden tones; he was an actor, and a comedian extraordinaire. Back then, I never thought of "I gotta be me" being any kind of turning inward toward narcissism or self-aggrandizement at the expense of charity toward others and submission to God.
Who thinks of those things when being entertained?
But, that, specifically, was his "stand-out" thing, more even than his natural talent, that made him so popular and gained him such a following and such a huge fan base. All that "Bling", and self-decorations might have been a giveaway if we had been paying attention to that sort of thing rather than his voice and his presence on stage.
Sinatra was another story, perhaps because I never really liked him. There was just something about him that turned me off; nothing I could put my finger on, but whatever it was, I never became a fan.
His "My Way" hit was recognized right off the bat as self adulation and an excuse to serve self before all others. The idea, actually promoted by a lot of "therapists" and Freudian Psychoanalysts today, is that, before you can help anyone else, you've got to take care of yourself. While that may be true as far as staying alive, it is not true as any kind of permanent way to arrange your life.
God comes first; family second, nation third, and you come in dead last.
That is the Christian way. That is the way of civilization. That is the way of human decency. But the rebel within us always says otherwise.
The popularity contest of entertainers revels in this rebellious nature, and takes it to new levels every time if finds a new way to rebel.
The last time we wrote about Popular Rebellion we noted this:
The successful rebel against normalcy cannot be subservient to anything or anyone. Not even God. The successful rebel thinks himself to be self-ruling, but he is not. Having rejected God, his is ruled by Antigod.
No one thinks of it that way, but that is the popular idea, hidden behind a rebellious mask. The rebel thinks he is rebelling against something, not toward something; but evil, or Antigod, is something, and the rebel is rebelling toward Antigod. Whether he knows it or not is of no matter.
Think of these ideas as demons, or demonic manifestations.
Now, when these ideas become popular, they become ingrained in the minds of fans as if they were true; but being popular does not make them true. Indeed, they are false.
God does exist; we are created.
But almost everything today points us away from those two facts. Not only in entertainment; in science, which has been corrupted into Scientism; in American politics, which have been corrupted into anti-American Socialism, and into education, which today embraces scientism, Socialism, militant atheism and, basically, unreality.
If you are old enough you remember how the evil American socialist news media, with the Communist Walter Cronkite in the lead, lied about the Vietnam war and made Communism and the Communist anti-war movement very, very popular in America. They said it was a "civil war" rather than another forcible takeover of another country, which is what Communism was doing in South Vietnam. They got students out in the streets rioting and burning, not unlike how the Marxocrats have Antifa and BLM out in the streets today rioting and burning.
But making the anti-war movement extremely popular back then did not make it true, or in any way the correct vision of what was going on over there. It was all a lie. Ho Chi Minh was a Russian, not a Vietnamese, and the Viet Cong (Vietnamese Communists) were his Machiavellian agent provocateurs trying to foment the chaos, disorder and terror necessary for another Communist takeover, and he was aided in that effort by the already Communist-leaning whole American news industry.
That's what Communism does. That's what it has always done.
What we are talking about here is a massive breaking of recognition of actual reality in a whole population. Done on purpose. Done for political purposes. Done by a political party, and their wholly owned and operated news media and popular entertainment industry.
The results are all around us today, with lots of people who don't even know what or who they are. People who actually believe they are something that they cannot be, because what they think they are does not even exist in reality.
Evil untruth and unreality is sponsored today by or own government, from the President on down. They are solemnly sworn to protect the "legal rights" of creatures that do not even exist.
There is no such thing as a transsexual, for instance, but Washington DC is awash with government officials who are practically up in arms ready to defend the right to be one, of anyone who thinks they may be one. Or may want to be one. Or may want to change their mind(s) and decide to be something else.
In the silly belief that what you think you are, you actually are. No matter how silly.
Political Terrorism involves "emergency" obedience training of whole populations, to "save" them from a danger that does not exist. The whole evil goal is to terrify vast segments of populations into blind obedience to the government, abandoning local rule, self-rule and all citizen independence and liberty, on an emergency basis, which never ends.
Note well how someone you knew died from "Covid Complications", rather than from something else, possibly mitigated by Covid.
There is and can be no such thing as any "kill shot" vaccine for any cold or flu virus. The reason there are annual or even more often flu shots made available is because of all the new strains that keep mutating. The one most likely to make you sick is the newest one, that you haven't been exposed to yet and you haven't had a shot for yet. So why bother to get the shot?
These new strains of Coroavirus are no different than new strains of Rhinovirus or flu virus; they are never going to end.
You can be sure that Fauci, like Xi Jinping, absolutely loves that fact.
The minute any man denies God he moves out of the realm of reality. The farther he goes in that direction, the closer he comes to insanity.
Insanity may be defined as a total break with reality.
The real reason none of us should be listening to any atheists, socialists, communists or Maxrists of any variety is that they are all nuts.
Why should any sane person listen to any nutcase like Fauci, or Biden?
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
