This particular rock has been spinning for billions of years.
There have been at least 5 Extinction Level Events (ELEs) known to our sciences.
Man - as we know him - has been around fewer than 200,000 years.
Civilization - as we know it - has been around only about 6,000 years.
The Nature of Man has proved time and again that we are creatures of violence.
Last century well over 100,000,000 men, women and children were murdered by Communists and other tyrants.
The first and only People to set-up a system of governance based on individual, personal Liberty and Natural Rights did so just over about 225 years ago - and it was almost immediately jacked by Federalists.
Just about 70 years after the Constitution was ratified, the Federalist ilk squared-off against fellow Americans who preferred not to be ruled by Washington. The population in 1860 was 31,500,000. Nearly 2.5% of the American population died during that war.
There are now more than 10x more people in America than in 1860. 2.5% would equate to a death toll of nearly 8,000,000. We are 150 years removed from the end of Civil War I.
This is Life. Everything is temporary.
The government of Greece is about to confiscate nearly 1/3 of the wealth of her countrymen. That pattern will repeat itself, even here.
There is going to be a fight. Everything in our past and our present informs us that there is going to be a fight.
You must be able to shoot, move and communicate. Get on it. Everything is temporary - even this period of time that is comfortable and filled with abundance.
