The Road To Genocide is Paved with 1%ers.
Many fear that anarchy will undoubtedly lead to chaos, while this isn’t true, I can see how one can deduce such a conclusion but I do not agree with it. Chaos doesn’t necessarily guarantee violence, what it does guarantee is uncertainty. Uncertainty is nothing to fear for it is the essence of life. Uncertainty is what makes life grand and mysterious it is what sets us free. I do not fear chaos because I do not fear uncertainty.
What I do fear is the organization of chaos and that is the antithesis of anarchy. That is the fingerprint of tyrants. Those so vile and so power hungry that they feast on the weak minded and broken hearted. in order to win the people over they must first shirt responsibility. They must hand them an enemy which they did not know existed. One that is believable and powerless against the mob that is being assembled. This is how tyrants achieve power. This is how chaos is organized.
“The tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny.”
What led to the Genocide of the Armenians along with the Genocide of the Kurds, Greeks and Assyrians in the Ottoman Empire was a newly elected government who needed someone to blame for all their troubles. They chose these people because they had accumulated great wealth and power and that wealth and power was blamed for the economic troubles of the Ottoman Empire.
What led to the Holocaust of the Jews along with the Holocaust of the Gypsies, homosexuals and the minorities in Germany was a newly elected government who needed someone to blame for all their troubles. They chose these people because they had accumulated great wealth and power and that wealth and power was blamed for the economic troubles of Germany.
What we have in America today is a newly elected government who needs someone to blame for all our troubles. They choose these people because they have accumulated great wealth and power and that wealth and power is blamed for the economic troubles of the America.
The tyrants of this world always find a way to pin blame on a minority group that is ease to blame for our troubles. They win the people over by handing them a sacrificial lamb. They gift the people with a feast on the meat of another animal and they disillusion them as to not see that there is murder of a fellow man but instead see it as a purge of a cancer.
Look at the world as it burns today. People are rioting in the streets, burning cars, fighting with police. People are out of work, out of homes, out of food, out of money and out of hope. They are desperate and desperate people are capable of dangerous feats.
It takes only a spark to ignite a room full of volatile gas and we’ve been pumping the room full for a decade now. I try to stay positive but it’s near impossible. I suppose the only way to do so would be to erase what I know and to ignore what I see. To grow blind and numb to my surroundings, but I can’t. They burn too hot and to bright that even with my eyes closed I can feel the heat and still see the glow.
The world is vulnerable right now. That much is undeniable. I know this like I know my own name. With every passing day I am thankful that a new radical hasn’t yet risen to power to guide the droves of the worlds improvised into doing unthinkable tasks. Every day that goes by without the room igniting into a chaotic fireball is one less day to fear.
Our only hope is that the next great leader is a virtuous one, a person of peace and not one of vengeance. One who sees what little good is left in the world and kindles it, grows it into a blaze, lights our torches and sets us free.
