Our President is a boil on humanities neck, but he's not the only one.
As the world becomes smaller as information, both real and false can be had in an instant.
The veil that was the American dream has been lifted.
It is not a pretty picture.
Like the reveal of Dorian Gray's portrait, all of the hatred, the crime, the bigotry, the injustice has left us with a gruesome portrayal of what America has been hiding from.
Through our own personal experience, all of us, no matter where we come from, try to put our best face forward.
Even though we may have a load in our pants most of us most of the time want to be perceived as good people.
However, if we were truly good how come there is fraud?
Somebody is committing these crimes against humanity.
The lifting of the veil that had previously covered the American way of life is only the most recent exploitation by a President and his supporters.
This underbelly of our society has been there since before the Pilgrims landed.
This is a significant point to understand.
We all like to believe in a good story.
There are many good stories at the heart of any society.
The core story that founded this nation in 1776 was that man is free.
He has all ways been free.
Anyone including any organization which includes governments and religions who try to abridge that natural order, this inalienable right, is a tyrant.
They that oppose this natural freedom are tyrants.
Broadly defining, it is called the tyranny of men.
These people, these organizations are not a friend of humanity.
Yet even though there have been those who hate others freedom and will burn and kill to prevent those freedoms, these people are also a part of the fabric of humanity.
The treads of humanity are made of many threads.
Most are common.
Some shine brilliantly
While sadly, many are dull.
And some threads are just plain evil.
But all of them are part of the quilt of humanity.
Our nation was founded upon an idea of freedom, remember?
A bold proposition given the history of the world.
Could a people reconcile the social and ideological war that has been going on between those who believe in freedom and those that do not?
All of the previous institutions of the world, no matter the people or the region, did not believe wholly in the innate freedom of man.
The power of institutions of governments of religions is to control, to segregate.
Freedom is only given with the price of membership and only to those within the power structure of the organization.
The American experiment is to determine if enough people could overcome their story, their myth, and embrace the concept of freedom for all.
Could they drop their racism?
Could they drop their segregation?
Could they drop their story?
Could they drop their hate?
And pick up hope?
From the inception of that proposition of freedom for all, and including to this very hour, American and Americans have been at odds with their history and traditions.
And because they have been at odds, those that feed and prosper from the old beliefs of segregation, division, hate they have sewn and continue to sew evil versus the open door of hope.
This President and his followers are the beginning of a new American brand of apartheid.
Make no mistake about it the fear of the future of America by many Americans is genuine.
Like dogs under the table being fed scraps of meat, people like the current President nurture the fear that white people are doomed as a race.
I have a borrowed saying I use frequently…
Don't start nothing won't be nothing.
Right now right today we are at the bookend of the story started by European greed.
If the Aristocracy of Europe didn't want to lose their white identity, they should have stayed home.
It's ironic, and I understand very few actually get irony but here goes…
It's ironic because the European Aristocracy believed that the white race was dominant.
Their arrogance allowed them to freely explore the world and claim it as theirs with little regard for the peoples they found along the way.
Those peoples would one day express a reality that the story these aristocrats told themselves that they would all ways be top dog turned out not to be true.
It turns out that numbers wise, population, that whites are a racial minority.
It's also been perplexing to me how a minority got control of a majority, and that majority didn't conclusively tell this minority to go sit down and stop rocking the boat.
But that's a digression.
Back to the boil on our necks.
This President feeds a false narrative that many Americans believe so that he can shield himself from personal inspection as he gains financial wealth.
He's not a patriot.
He's not there for the majority.
He's not there of a minority.
He's in office for the one.
It's getting to be really, really obvious.
The only way to get rid of a boil is with a lance.
The actual substance of the argument must be pierced.
And in our case, the lance of truth must pierce the prejudice of tyranny.
The veil has been lifted, and our way is clear to see.
We must be grounded in the knowledge that freedom and justice are for all.
We're going to try and save as much of the quilt of America as we can.
But that lance can be used for more than lancing old boils.
It can be used as a needle to sew new bright threads of compassion, truth, and honor into the fabric of our nation.
Do not suffer fools.
Drop hate and pick up hope.
Shine the light of truth before freedoms door.
