Faith in People/Movements

Faith can be a beautiful thing to have. If we love someone implicitly then we put our trust and faith in their steadfastness. Faith that is placed in the fallible though is very likely to disappoint us in a myriad of ways. We place faith in our elected representatives to faithfully represent us, to be our voice to advocate our values. What we have unfortunately discovered is that most people forget to be our voice and instead act in their own interests and of those more affluent than themselves. Movements spring up across our nation promising change, what we usually end up with is the status quo in new clothing. New faces are simply compilations of those that came before them, nothing is new under the sun. 

I recently wrote an article referring to the q-anon posts. The followers of these individuals are almost sycophantic in their need to believe in some benevolent force plotting in the shadows just like those we aim to overturn. Some of them have even suggested that Q is Trump. I think that’s ridiculous, Trump might be many things, but timid isn’t one of them. Hiding in the shadows is certainly not a display of bravery. Yet, I’ve still continued to read these “intelligence” drops as they are so lovingly called by those convinced of there truth.

Q has been passive-aggressively pursuing those that are after the same stated goals as this shadow group. They have stated that capitalism is wrong, that someone can’t be on the side of liberty if they are making money while advocating a return to liberty-based governance. I love this coming from a shadow, these people could be living in a cardboard box stealing a wifi signal from a nearby restaurant or living in a palatial palace in the heart of the controlling banker’s gated communities. The truth is we don’t know who or what they are, but we do know how people behave and most people hidden from view take liberties they wouldn’t otherwise if observed.

I still read these posts hoping that something of substance actually pans out, but I don’t put faith in those too timid to bathe in the light. The idea that he or they are hiding because they are some secret agent is ludicrous, they would be found and destroyed if anything they had to offer was pertinent, the fact that they are still operating seems to suggest either their information is crap or they are part of a government-sanctioned operation designed to divide liberty lovers and have them fight amongst themselves. This passive-aggressive obsession with fellow patriots suggests that they are controlled. If they were arrayed against the powers that control us then they would understand how dire those circumstances actually are and wouldn’t seek to divide freedom loving Americans. The division makes us weak and enables the deep state to exert control. There has been a lot of talking, always about how people will be brought to justice, until that actually happens it’s just talking. Bread and circuses used to control a population on the verge of waking up to the robbery of our children’s future. I don’t say to follow or not follow Q, but I would urge caution and be careful not to place too much faith in the unknown, we can only deal with the tangible in this world anything else is pure speculation and fantasy.
