Charlottesville

     Editor’s Note: On Saturday August 12, 2017 Right Wing Protesters including members of hate groups like Neo Nazi’s and the Klu Klux Klan clashed with left wing counter protesters in Charlottesville Virginia in the United States when the member of a hate group drove his car into the crowd of left wing protesters killing 3 and injuring a few dozen people.

     I have been holding my tongue on what happened in Charlottesville over this past weekend because I wanted to think about it before I wrote about it publicly. The whole concept of what happened there sickens me in the type of repugnancy that chills me to the core.

     I have been listening to the heartfelt responses and media rhetoric that has come in its aftermath. I have been analyzing what has been said and what has been done. I firmly believe that we, as Americans are looking at this in the wrong way. Hate groups be they the KKK, Neo-Nazis or whomever, are run on publicity. They need publicity to get their message out and attract followers. What happened in Charlottesville and its aftermath has given them exactly what they want.

     In my mind, beyond all of the things that have been written and spoken of in the media there are three main issues involved and the sad point is that almost everyone has missed all three of them. The issues are constitutional rights, the legal responsibilities that come with those rights and giving hate groups a bully pulpit.

     We live in a nation that has constitutional rights. Everyone in America has the right to freely express their opinions. Everyone in America has the right to bear arms. These things should not even be in dispute. To take away one person or one group’s rights to freely express their opinions puts everyone’s right to freely express their opinion in danger. There are of course limits to freedom of speech. Yelling Fire in a public theater puts people’s lives in danger. Saying lets line all of the blankity blanks up against a wall and shoot them is inciting murder.

     Everyone has the right to carry a gun but that right was created by the founding fathers for hunting, personal or homestead protection and so that it would make it difficult for a tyrant to take over the government through a coup. There is, however, a difference between carrying a gun for personal protection and gathering as an armed mob when clearly the hate group members lives were not in danger. That is considered an armed mob especially when they are bullying or terrorizing others. They should have been disarmed because of this.

 

     Finally, I don’t think that we, as Americans should give hate groups a bully pulpit. We should ignore them. Think about this. What would have happened if these hate groups showed up for their rally and there was no counter protest. The people on the street just ignored them and no press covered them? It would have just been a bunch of idiots who showed up to a rally for themselves with a message that no one else heard or cared about. Nothing is more humbling than anonymity. Chances are those who came to the “rally” from hundreds of miles away would think twice about attending another failure. The hate groups would have accomplished nothing more than a protest that fell on deaf ears. Instead of the horrible mess America actually ended up with.

In Ture Faith,

On Creating… The short movie One Small Candle

 

 

The Prophet of Life On Creating The Short Film “One Small Candle”

I wanted to create something that would inspire people all over the world. I wanted to illustrate the power of faith during difficult circumstances. I decided to illustrate this through portraying the story of a poor young woman living in a violent neighborhood of a major city. The story embraces the new Cultureblend genre of literature. It is not based on any actual person from a particular culture. It is based on a blending of person created from a cultures to create a composite of a person in a blended culture.  The setting is not in a particular culture, a particular place or in a particular time.nation.  I am certain there are millions of people in exactly the same circumstances as the main character from various cultures .

It began as the lyrics to a song. Then I transformed it into a story poem for a book I wrote entitled Revelations of 2012 (this book was only issued in paperback and only a few hundred copies exist so if you can find one, snap it up).

When I wrote the poem, I wanted people to get a sense of what the main character goes though on a daily basis. I wanted them to notice how one small act she does, consistently inspires others over time. I thought that perhaps if people saw something in this story poem, they might look at their own lives and think about what small act they could do consistently to inspire others.

I do believe that there is a cause effect relationship in every act we perform whether it is positive or negative. This poem and short film are meant to illustrate that in an inspirational way. I kept the film short and simple. There are no pictures, just words on a black screen and gentle background music. And subtle special effects that hit you when you least expect it.  It tells an entire story, in rhyme in about two minutes. So spend two minutes and watch One Small Candle.

The Story Behind The U.S. Air Strike on A Syrian Air Base

By The Prophet of Life

There’s a lot of talk about the U.S. air strike on a Syrian Government Air base in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack that killed scores of civilians in a Syrian town right now.  Some people believe President Trump did the right thing. Others thought that what he did was meddling in international affairs. Syrian rebel groups cheered the move and hoped that this was the beginning of an escalation of U.S. intervention to topple the Assad Administration. Many of others are just confused.

 

President Trump would like to have good relations with Russia. The Russian response was inflammatory but measured as was, according to many world leaders, the U.S. bombing as a response to the use of Sarin. Sarin is a deadly nerve agent that attacks the central nervous system and is lethal a high percentage of the time. President Trump said that it’s use crossed the line and that it had to be responded to.

The attack was disguised as a bombing. When it first took place, reports of civilians dying with symptoms synonymous with toxic nerve agents were almost immediate. Syria was accused to using chemical weapons once again, just as they had several years ago. Russia came to Syria’s defense and claimed that they Syrian Air Force did not drop chemical weapons on the town but hit a cash of Sarin stored by rebel forces. They cited the fact that all of Syria’s chemical weapons were destroyed as a result of a deal struck by Russia and the Obama administration to destroy all of Syria’s chemical weapons the last time the Syrian government used chemical weapons on its own civilians.

That deal, as you may recall, was made after then Secretary of State John Kerry answered a question posed by a reporter in London a week after the incident. Kerry was asked what Syria could do to avoid U.S. intervention and potential war against Syria. Kerry’s response was “They should get rid of every last chemical weapon in their arsenal”.  Within an hour Russia responded to Kerry’s outburst by stating that Syria was willing to do that.

At that point in time tensions between Russia and the U.S. were high and there was a strong possibility that the U.S. would escalate it’s military intervention in Syria. End of the world evangelists were filling the media and the internet with predictions of this being the beginning of World War 3 and the end of the world. With this as a backdrop, I sent messages to white house staffers suggesting that they get a message to Secretary Kerry to demand Syria get rid of all of their chemical weapons. Secretary Kerry made the statement a few days after my message was received.

President Trump expressed his feelings about the Obama not correctly handling the use of chemical weapons in Syria when they were in office. He didn’t want to make the same mistake. He also wants to preserve good relations with Russia. So, why did the U.S. launch the air strike?

I believe that the air strike was a calculated move to sow the world that the U.S, condemns the use of chemical weapons on civilians. I further believe that the U.S. has footage of the planes taking off from that air base, and dropping the chemical weapons on the town. I believe that President Trump had seen the video footage and told the Russian Government that he would respond but that he would not show the footage unless Russian reaction forced him to.

In this way, Russia saves face (they were the ones who claimed that the chemical weapons came from the ground and were stored by rebels and that Syria got rid of all of their chemical weapons). Russia, in response will issue some harsh toned rhetoric but take no further action. You might just see Bashir Al Assad quietly leaving office in the next six months, which could possibly be part of the deal that was struck this week. He would likely be replaced by a more moderate leader, loyal to and controllable by Russia, who will work towards negotiating a peace.

You could also see an increase in U.S. military intervention. It will all depend on the relationship between the U.S. and Russia and the ability of the world press to ferret through the rhetoric and read between the lines.
