“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within.
An enemy at the gates is less formidable,
for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely,
his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims,
and he wears their face and their arguments,
he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night
to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to fear.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero, c.40 BCE.
My son asked me if he could walk out (of school) in protest…here’s how the conversation went…
son: is it ok if I protest on Wednesday?
me: protest what? Why would you do that?
son: protests initiate change, they bring awareness to the issue
me: yes, like what…
son: civil rights, people had to protest for the right to vote, etc. (he went on)
me: that’s true! Protests can be a great catalyst. So what are you protesting?
son: gun laws
me: and what are the current gun laws?
son: I don’t know, but they need to change
me: how do you know they need to change if you don’t know what they are? Who makes the gun laws? Whose attention are you trying to get?…
son: I don’t know
me: then no, you may not protest in ignorance. You don’t protest something just bc everyone else is doing it. What is happening in the schools is wrong, and scary, and sad, some things need to change. But you must educate yourself before you can be an agent of change.
“These inflation prices are wild, who could have seen this coming?”
“Every person who didn’t vote for Biden”

Keep it up!
