Don’t give up the fight

It is important to maintain a positive attitude, see the good in all things, be non-judgmental of our neighbors, etc. Yet in these times that we live in, it is essential to maintain our God given intelligence and clearly discriminate between good and evil. Then we must actively oppose evil.

Last night my wife and I went to dinner with friends and then went to hear activist Michael Moore speak. The church where he spoke was packed with 1,600 people. Another 700 who could not get in were standing outside in the snow and freezing cold. Moore came out and spoke to us on the street corner so that we would not miss out. We then went to a friend’s house and continued our discussion of society and politics. After we got home, my wife said she was so tired of hearing all the bad things that are going on. I sometimes feel the same way. I explained the necessity of not being in denial, of not disengaging and abandoning the field to the destructive, neo-con opposition.

We all deserve peace of mind, but not at the price of freedom. God put us in this world for a purpose, and to just transcend, seeking personal peace while millions are suffering unjustly is not right. Especially those of us living in the U.S.A. have a special obligation in this election year to bring about regime change and end the imperial rule which is destroying our nation and the world.

Peace through solidarity,

Steve
