Force Decisions We Can Live By! Just another bumper sticker, or is it New Age philosophy? It began as an overwhelming drive to express lessons I have learned and warnings I observe, in simple terms, easily understood by others. I don't want fame, though I have made plans for fortunes I may never see. I just don't want to get caught with a pile of money and no idea what to do with it, even though I don't gamble or play lotteries. My great ambition was just to share ideas that could be useful to others and help them prepare for a violent future of sharply reduced expectations. I knew in my heart writing on wall has already become so much graffiti to be painted over.
I thought perhaps I could put a new face on old writing and connect with some like minded people. In two years since Al Qaeda attacks on Eleven September, message remains same. The U.S. Government is impotent to protect anyone from this new kind of warfare. Also, that only effective defense is personal self defense; much of which should be obvious.
If you insist upon living and working in a known or likely target area, your odds of a happy, productive future, plummet like towers. You become a volunteer for martyrdom; for what or whom? America decided best act of defiance was to get back to business as usual. The idea that suing for peace at start of a war, was a practical option, did not appeal to public or leadership. A bad situation was made worse. Senator Joseph Biden recently summed up how it works. He does not regret authorizing an incompetent President to go to war. He only regrets President is incompetent. You canít be more double minded than that.
President Bush wants another five years to teach us that throwing all money in world at national security will make no difference, except to bankrupt Western Civilization. Since this is a stated goal of Al Qaeda, it's clear we are all fighting a war against Western Civilization - and winning.
We all understand huge gap between people of West and rulers of West. That's why our global enemies sincerely tell us not to take it personally; that they only see one way to affect change in ruling policy. The question for people of West is whether they owe a duty to go down with ship. Is it cowardice to survive fall of Western Civilization? Is it dishonor to tend to one's self and loved ones, when "leadership" just wants to get on with fireworks?
Personally, I believe in survival. I want a shot at doing things right - next time. I'm searching for others who know or sense it is time to bail out of a ship, so low in water, under fire, day in, day out, from without and from within. All warriors know is how to make holes bigger and they are hard at it. There is no wisdom in leadership today. Is there any left among people?
Since I have no profession beyond Christian faith, lifesaving can be no more than a hobby for me. The World Wide Web presents an opportunity for me to popularize this hobby. The potential is there to save millions of lives. Even as an amateur life saver, I am an unlikely candidate. I have a temporary visual impairment that prevents me from finding places I could be posting my warnings, exhortations and encouragements, to take care of business; while there is still business to take care of.
My impairment has reduced my personal funds to a point I cannot hire help, before I recover. I'm not asking for money. I'm asking how much time we have to save millions of lives. It was eight years from first attack on World Trade Center. How many years will it be between first attack on Washington D.C., till next one? Two have already passed.
