Deceivers capture words, capture ideas, as well. They manipulate these words and ideas and shape them into an observable image; and then they pledge to, finance and kill for it. Its followers understand to obey, labor for and sacrifice lives and wealth to the image. And regardless of the trail of blood and misery in its wake, the faithful march on, prideful and assured, because their honored image alleviates them of any burdens outside that of the burdens given by the image. Things such as flags, religious symbols, systems, and idealistic labels i.e. liberty, happiness and security help appease many with ideas of belonging by tickling their ears with perishable goods.
But, exactly why all the blood and the misery? However, before you give this question some thought, consider this example of a captured word, the word patriot. Patriot is currently defined as the support of country! And Deceivers would have you believe that this 'support of country' is the sole definition of the word. Currently, a patriot supports country whether the country is right or wrong. A patriot goes where the image takes it, and, no questions asked. Enemies can rise and oppose the country of the patriot with good cause, but the patriot would dehumanize the enemy; for country, the patriot believes his is the only truth. And any dissent of the current patriot's truth is considered envious and evil. Blood and misery spawn from kind of unconditional 'support of country'.
However, words carry different meanings and present in just as many perspectives. For example, the word, Patriot. Isn't there an absolute distinction between a patriot and his support for country and a patriot supporting a God, the one Muslims, Hebrews and followers of Paul together honor. The latter patriotism is in accord with a defined outcome, Life because God is Life. However, the Deceiver has also hijacked different faiths and uses faith's influence for broadening the influence of its image. However, this is a call to action to the saints, the patriots of Law and faith. These patriots walk parallel to other patriots, but their road offers a distinguishable illumination and brings forth a more usable perspective. The patriots running around professing all the high-cost good they do while blood drips from their capitalistic aprons is already well known. The knowledge presently escaping me is the tangible presentation of patriots demanding, promoting and sustaining life, at all cost...The ones the heavens will guide and march into battle for hearts and minds.
I am an enlisted patriot standing with other patriots mentally armed and ready for a battle that is promised to us.
The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.--
