What we need is a Cultural Revolution

20 04 2010

Yes, I mean it, we need a revolution in culture.  This revolution of culture we had in the 1960’s led to the culture we have today.  We need another revolution to bring it back.  This revolution is in three values:

Faith, Hope and Charity.

Faith:  You need to believe in something, in a greater being, that something is greater than you.  Today, in this culture, that being is becoming the government, and THAT needs to change.  The debate of which religion is better, that comes later.  We are in a crisis of faith.  Too many people believe in nothing.

Hope:  The ability to dream for a better future for yourself, your family, your community.  This was the AMERICAN DREAM for many years.  That dream, thanks to the government over the last years, is getting further and further out of reach.    The dream should not be the Government giving the American People everything, only to yank it away when it no longer suits their purpose.

Charity:  The intrinsic spirit of good that our country has.  We as the most prosperous nation in history have also been the most generous in uplifting the downtrodden, the hurt, the ones ravaged by disaster.  Yet in some places, like Massachusetts and California, this becomes harder and harder unless one is of the super rich, and that is meant not a knock against them:  merely statement of fact.  It isn’t impossible, it just means the burden on the average citizen gets larger every day and when the burden is larger, it’s harder to be able to give of one’s self.  We do not need government telling us that we need to give more of our money for their drunken spending spree.

Thomas Paine said it best:  “Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.”

If you don’t believe me, perhaps this will wake things up.  Got it from Misha’s site, and he’s certainly more hard core than I am when it comes to being right winged and opinionated.
