So the world is a chaotic mess I’ve decided. It has probably always been but I just never noticed it until I grew up. I am sick of hearing the same stuff everyday. I am sick of being told lies by people who are suppose to tell us the truth where as if we tell them a lie, we go to jail or get fined.
It’s just a hot ball of mess. I recommend reading How Do You Kill 11 Million People? (Why the Truth Matters More than You Think). By Andy Andrews. He puts things into perspective and combines it all into a 20 minute read. It will open your eyes. But you have to be the one willing to soak it in and keep an opened mind. It is a non-fiction book so he has a lot of truth and the past to prove his point. Also includes a bibliography in the back so you can check his own work.
There are also a lot of books out there that are like… faction. It has some truth to it but has a fake story line. I can’t stress it enough to people how important reading books are and learning about the past. So important. If I could pay people for them to let me teach them history I would. That is how important it is. It is important to the world’s identity and even your own identity.
When George Washington wrote that “free people ought … to be armed,” he gave us a clue as to the kind of America the Founders envisioned. It was one where the government stayed within its bounds, carrying out its limited duties while leaving the people free to exercise their rights and liberties. Thomas Jefferson spoke to this when he described the “good government” as one that “shall restrain men from injuring one another [and] shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement.” In other words, the “good government” is one that enforces the law, thus preserving order, but otherwise remains within the limited parameters established for it, so that people can go about their business, whatever that business may be.
