Many times we look at things the way they are and simply scratch our collective heads and wonder: When did the world go off the tracks? Who was at the helm asleep? Am I the only one who sees things like this? How did it get so bad? What went wrong? How can we get things straightened out? Will I and the few others have to take this on alone? And the biggest question: Where do we start? Let us start with the good news which is that you already have taken that first step as have millions of others. The bad news is that yes, it is going to seem like we the so few are initially going to have to attempt this alone. But the outlook had more good news than bad because slowly more and more of us are waking to see the problem. Unfortunately, all too many of us are having great amounts of difficulty taking that first step towards a new tomorrow. The reason for that is we are trying to use the tools which created the problem to repair the damage and that simply cannot work. We need to look deep in our hearts to find what has been missing. Many, myself included, see that much of the solution can be found in religion and the lessons it teaches and its focus on family, children and the future. Without these three ideas and ideals and all that is built around them, there is no solution and what we are fighting for is ridiculed and belittled as superstitious religion. The idea is to take the entirety of any future into their own hands and reserving it for their children and only their children, not for the rest of us. They still want us to have children just as long as there are not too many of them and they are willing to perform the menial functions in service of their betters.

 

The problems with much of society today are the ideas that we are to live our lives for ourselves and to maximize our own pleasures. Just look at the solutions and where they lead. If you are pregnant and are not ready to give up your lifestyle or not financially ready to afford a child or any of a million reasons in modern society for not starting a family, then simply have an abortion and do not let anyone tell you that it is selfish and you are killing a human life. You have your life and your reasons and can think for yourself. Empower yourself and you can always start a family later, when you are ready and after you have had as much fun as you deserve so don’t let it bother you, you are doing the right thing. Anyways, you did not actually plan this pregnancy and have not taken the necessary preparations for having such a burden right now, later when you are settled and have achieved that level and reached your potential, then you will be ready and you can start your family, after all, there is that promotion at work and just think what this would do to your chances of advancing? This reasoning has become so prevalent in societies across the advanced world that as many as half of all pregnancies in those communities result in abortions. This has cut the number of children being born to well below replacement level and those societies are slowly eradicating themselves, some doing so not all that slowly. The greatest occurrence of this style of thinking is plaguing Europe where there are insufficient births to produce the numbers which their society needs to replace the workforce and provide the resources for continuing the healthy operation of the society.

 

Throughout the Western World there has been a steady decline in babies born to each generation placing an ever increasing burden on each individual member of the next generation to provide sufficient taxes to care for the retired from the previous generation who are living longer and longer lives thus demanding more financing to cover their senior benefits. The youth are seeing this burden and realizing that there is no possibility of these benefits being there for them when they retire. Eventually, and more likely sooner rather than later, the youth are going to revolt against this retirement arrangement and might very likely place a cap on the age where people can continue receiving these benefits if they have the ability. The problem they will face is that there will be more people close to or already receiving these benefits for them to be voted out of existence. It really is a self-perpetuating problem. What is the solution? Simple, have more children and stop listening to those who constantly tell you that the planet cannot support that many people because unless an unforeseen widespread disaster were to strike, the earth could produce three times the food simply by bringing modern technology to the areas where farmers are still using what can only be described as primitive methods of farming. The lack of having sufficient children in each generation to at least meet replacement levels is a large part of the societal problem being faced as in order to have the present society function even at the previous generational level there comes a need to allow larger and larger numbers of immigrants often from areas which are less advanced and requiring training to meet the job requirements and permit the continued function of society. Of course the same safety net which was designed for a society with a work ethic which has been lost to too much of modern societies such as those causing the problems in Europe where the native population and its societal norms rapidly becoming the minority and their social norms being replaced by an alien set of societal norms and this is racing to the tipping-point beyond which there will be no turning back.

 

The simplest reason behind the failure of Western society is that it has stopped investing in the future in the most basic manner, offspring. Having children was a directive of religion as part of the concept of be plentiful and multiply. Modern society says experience and enjoy the pleasures and wonders of the plenty the world we have built provides and don’t worry about tomorrow, it will soon be here and yesterday gone, and that is a part of the problem, we allow too many yesterdays to be gone and unalterable and often each generation has experienced life to a later age before having families, so much so that the childbearing years have passed and many couples have one child or even no child. Replacement levels are approximately two and one tenth children per woman in the society. The problem comes when a large portion of the society has under this reproductive replacement rate placing a larger portion for replacement level reproduction on the remaining women making the new replacement level to rise to as high as five children per reproductively active young women.

 

The source of the lack of children in a society comes as a direct result of the ethos of live for today and let tomorrow take care of itself. This is the sirens’ call which combined with the accusation that religion had no place in modern society as science is the new religion and where to turn for our answers. Religion has been belittled as something society has left behind along with all those other superstitions such as the existence of G0d. The claim has become that there is nothing higher than mankind and that we are to be subservient to the newest provider of all freedoms, the all-powerful State. We are no longer to seek the reason for our rights coming from our Creator but from the structures we have placed over us to rule though we continue to retain our right, for the time being, to elect our representatives. The proof of how powerless the individual has become one need not look any further than the numbers of bureaucrats who are tasked to facelessly craft the regulations and actual enforcement codes required allowing for the legislations passed by the Government to be enforceable. The idea for replacing religion with government and the guarantor of our freedoms to the State and not from our Creator the transformation has been completed where the State is now responsible for our freedoms and as such can restrict or even do completely away with any freedoms which are not specifically enumerated as coming from forces outside of government, and even these are being circumvented whenever possible or, at the very least, being defined as coming under enforcement by the State and eventually at the pleasure of the State. This transition changes the society into a social-democratic republic which is based on the rules from man leading to have made our governance under the rule of man more than the rule of law. This eventually leads to a society where there are the elites who see to the definitions of the law and their enforcement and the rest of the society which obeys the regulator’s rules. This is an impossible task as there exist far too many codes, laws and regulations on the books thus causing a situation where if government desires to turn a person, say an individual attempting to change the way the rules are enforced from the rules of men to a more lofty goal of living under the guidance of a higher truth which protects our freedoms making it so that no man is able to take away our rights, such a person threatens the all-powerful State and leads to the State proving the futility of challenging the rule of man which stands over our societies. Still, no matter how difficult it may result in being or how steep the challenge, we need to restore a higher authority for our laws and protector of our individual rights because should one look throughout history we will witness how mere mortal men cannot be trusted to safeguard our individual freedoms as only by claiming and forcing the society into believing that their freedoms are issued by government and thus can be positioned to lord over the rest of the society. As long as we permit the State to define our liberties and freedoms we will remain as slaves to the governing mechanisms and the men who sit faceless meting out regulations and taking or granting those freedoms and liberties which used to claim our Creator as their source as now the State claims that power. We should return and place our faith where it belongs and as much of our coinage cries out, In G0d We Trust and never, ever in man we trust as man is fallible and greedy and G0d is all knowing and all caring. Where would you wish to place your trust, in some unknown and unseen bureaucrat or in the all-seeing and beneficent G0d? I know where I place my future and the future of my family though we also understand that mankind is capable of great strides, they will never reach a point where they are even remotely comparable to the Almighty, praised be His Name and His Glorious Kingdom for the L0rd our G0d, the L0rd is One.

There has been escalating violence not only on the Temple Mount but across Jerusalem, both Eastern and Western Jerusalem. The Temple Mount violence is all about denying Jews access to the Temple Mount in order to claim that the lack of Jews ascending the Temple Mount is just further proof that the Temple Mount is only holy for Muslims and the Jews hold no importance to the Temple Mount. Meanwhile, the secular leadership of law enforcement, including Chief of Police Inspector-General Yochanan Danino, are taking the position that by restricting Jewish access to the Temple Mount they will be able to reestablish peace and quiet on the Temple Mount and in Jerusalem in general. The problem is they are only feeding the Temple Mount and Jerusalem violence as they are proving the exact point the Arab violence has hoped they would accomplish. These secular leaders have no understanding of what a religious based confrontation would appear as or what exactly is the best avenue to combat such a confrontation. They believe that by shrinking from any confrontation will bring on peace and quiet when all such actions will prove to do is to give further impetus to the demonstrations and reinforce them with additional motivation by proving the effectiveness of such violence. The attempts to satiate those instigating the violence by acquiescing to their strident and supremacist demands for surrender of control over the Temple Mount have failed utterly. Further, timidity in the face of the general violence across the Israeli capital city of Jerusalem has failed and has served to amplify such violence through granting corroboration of the reasoning which inspired these violent actions thus rewarding the violence. Any hopes to halt the increased violence pressing hopes to force the complete surrender of the Jewish state and lead to replacing it with their Arab state is fading as the police hierarchy refuses to accept their concepts of passive resistance failed. But surely there must be more behind the expanding violence over the Temple Mount and Jerusalem and a larger plan behind this violence, and there is definitely such a plan that is about to be exploded before the world as it gets introduced to the Security Council of the United Nations and the world faces a choice and will very likely make the exact same error in their calculations that the secular leadership and much of the political class in Israel have made, acquiescing to the Arab demands to form an additional Arab terror state drawn out of what will soon become the corpse of Israel with the compliance and cooperation of the rest of the world’s nations.

 

This violence is being sold to the Arabs living under the rule of three major terrorist groups, Fatah, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad, along with a number of lesser terror groups with others from various criminal families living in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria as their religious and territorial rights and necessary to prevent the Jews from destroying the al-Aqsa Mosque and stealing their lands and businesses unless they revolt and spread violence which will serve to frighten the Jews as the Jews are weak and unable to fight successfully against honorable Arab anger and will act with timidity and run from any confrontation. This is the general message being pushed throughout the Arab neighborhoods in Gaza, Judea and Samaria encouraging violence of any nature targeting the frightened and timid Jews and for the purpose of showing the world the Arab desire for the liberation of their historic and ancient homelands which the perfidious Jews have attempted to steal from them since the beginning of the accursed state of Israel. The entire scheme behind the outbursts of Arab violence across Israel and centered in Jerusalem and the Temple Mount will only be elevated escalating to coincide with the Arab League sponsored petitioning of the United Nations Security Council to force Israel to relent and allow an Arab state to be formed utilizing the pre Six Day War of June 1967 Armistice Lines as the new borders and leaving East Jerusalem including all of the Old City and Temple Mount as the new Arab State and for the United Nations to provide troops to protect the Arabs within this new state from the Jews and to force any Jews residing within their borders to surrender their homes, businesses, farms, vineyards, and other treasures and be pushed back into Israel without any compensation or other relief for their loss all under the directive of protection of the defenseless Arabs within their new state. Jordan, the nation which is to take the position of President of the Security Council in January, will be presenting Mahmoud Abbas’s demands for the Security Council to force the formation of an Arab state named Palestine meeting every last demand which Abbas has been unable to gain through negotiations with Israel. The reason Abbas has not been capable of reaching an agreement with Israel is exactly the same as it was with Yasser Arafat before him, that neither was willing to accept anything less than Israel’s complete and total surrender on every last demand made by the Arabs while refusing to meet any Israeli demand even to the point of refusing to recognize the right of Israel to exist or that any agreement would signal the end to the resistance and their terror war against Israel. This is also true of their demand of the Security Council that even once they are granted their state they still will refuse to accept the existence of Israel and they plan to continue their terror resistance to the existence of a Jewish state until they have destroyed Israel with the assistance of the rest of the world through the United Nations.

 

The frightening part of this entire insanity is the recent revelations that United States President Obama has been considering a method through which he can punish Israel for not bending before his will and actually putting their own survival and consideration above his demands. It was revealed presumably to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that one method of punishing Israel might be to refuse to veto some motion to punish Israel when it came before the Security Council. The surfacing of such a predicament facing Israel is frightening enough but with the recent collapse of the Israeli coalition due to certain party leaders revolting and attempting to unseat the sitting Prime Minister, something made even more believable with the ferocity of the assaults on the Prime Minister and the primary focus of their actions being towards the guaranteeing his defeat without any other meaning or desire to serve the people beyond his defeat being proposed as their platforms thus far, will only make resisting such a presentation before the Security Council that much more difficult. The reasoning by Hamas, Fatah, Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the Arab forces is that they can force pressures on Israel with increasing violence forcing Israel into a compromised position leaving them with the quandary facing the ramped up violence and the inability to resist the violence by increased enforcement and imposing order through forceful law enforcement as doing so will only serve to give Abbas another item to use in his display of how the Israelis are oppressing his fellow Arabs, and of course their acts of violence are all so very and completely understandable as a response to the Israeli brutal forces which are oppressing the Arabs and denying them their rights to express themselves, also known as rioting. The violence will continue to ramp up and up and up for however long as it takes to finally get the Europeans and the rest of the world to come down on Israel to demand that they surrender to every last Arab demand so that the violence will end and the Arabs will not be injured or further deaths due to police actions to suppress the violence and terrorism which of course the Arabs were perfectly entitled to riot and murder Jews but Israel is not to be allowed the right of self-defense as such acts of self-defense would interrupt the Arab desires and needs to express themselves even if such expressions result in violence and destruction of properties owned by Israelis or the deaths of Israelis as Arab rights to self-expression is more important to the average European politician and many of the rest of the world’s politicians than is the right of Israelis, especially Jewish Israelis, to possess homes and businesses or even to live. How far the Obama administration is willing to go to punish Israel for refusing to bend before their will remains to be seen. If the reports that the Obama administration is seeking a route to punish Israel even to the extent of permitting the alignment of the world in the creation of an Arab state between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea reinforced with foreign troops to protect the Arabs even when they riot and assault Israelis firing rockets from their newfound state and other assaults across the border into Israel proves true, then the question of what happens when Israeli troops respond to such assaults enter the Arab state under a declaration of war responding to such assaults. Will such a defensive response from Israel be met by the rest of the world declaring war on Israel in response to their assault on international peacekeepers who are protecting the Arabs when they attack Israel with rockets, artillery fire, sniper fire and other military attacks? Is this the path the world takes to bring forth the war where Israel stands opposed by the entirety of mankind? Is this what leads to the actual war to end all wars? Can we afford as a planet to take such a risk. We may be finding out far too soon and without any actual intent to reach such a final and total confrontation in which any result will be something which the world will never rebound from and return to anything resembling normal life.

Promise from a Zionist to the Internationalist Jew

To my brothers and sisters who are once again taking the path of transformation of man and society while dismissing those who have chosen to reestablish G0d’s gift and strengthen Eretz Yisroel to be our home and refuge when evil raises up once again. As you put your faith in the potential of goodness in mankind, please understand that I prefer to stand with the goodness of G0d. You go ahead and paint with your words a wonderful picture of a world that you can see right around the corner if only mankind would join you in your quest for the perfection of mankind. Me, I will celebrate the perfection of the L0rd and try to perfect simply myself through His laws and Torah though I know that at my best I will fall short. You search out that which is most noble within man and dream your dreams which cannot be until the day that was promised comes. You try and make the world perfect while I will remain content to pray to the L0rd our G0d to bring forth the day when he transforms mankind making him perfect. You keep your faith in mankind and I will remain faithful to the L0rd our G0d.

But allow me to tell you that you are not taking a new path which many of our fellow men have taken from the beginning of time always with the same disastrous results. Let me regale you with just a few examples from history from many ages in which men attempted to perfect the world and stand as gods themselves. One of the earliest stories of men so employed were those who in their folly attempted to build a tower to the heavens so they too could be as G0d. They met with the confusion of their languages and the tower never really got off the ground. The builders of the Tower of Babel met an end that was the most fortunate likely as theirs was such an innocent and misguided folly that the L0rd could not see to be harsh with them. But put them back in their place He did with a kind hand; others have not been as fortunate.

Through the ages there have been utopian visionaries and utopian societies which had the answers to all of mankind’s problems. Some were fortunate enough to have their efforts rewarded with a following but none ever succeeded while others brought into existence some of the most horrid and oppressive governances ever witnessed by man. Two of these in modern times were the Soviet Communists and the German National Socialists. One proposed to have the most equitable and egalitarian economic system where all labor and wealth were to be shared equally by all within the society. Of course, with time we found that the few at the top of the power structure and the enforcement divisions proved to be just a little more equal than the rest. Even so, the eventual result of this dream was that man is not yet, nor ever likely to be, a perfect creature and the workers realizing the promise of an equal share independent of effort chose not to put out maximum effort and production declined and eventually everybody was getting an equal share of next to nothing. The other was going to breed the perfect society by the use of eugenics and planned breeding. The aim was to produce a super race of perfect humans who would rule over the lesser beings. Only the superior race would be considered human and all the others were subhuman to be used as worker animals and nothing more. This was not an acceptable route to perfection and the world eventually resisted and defeated this utopian nightmare. Just like Captain Nemo who set out to stamp out the violence of war using his advanced submarine the Nautilus; his produced result was even more horrific than what he was fighting against as he made victim of all without any differentiation between those who defended good and those who were evil. In every instance when man has sought to form a perfect society he has always fallen short because mankind is inherently imperfect.

When the next utopian society descends into a chaotic anarchical chaos or produces a singular elite which supersede their theoretical limitations taking dictatorial oppressive control and you turn to seek help, we will be here to offer refuge for you are still our brothers and sisters and in serving G0d we will not forsake you as He will not allow you to be forsaken. We may do so with a heavy heart because we had tried to warn you that your dreams would end in a nightmare but you insisted. We actually wished you would have succeeded and formed that perfect utopian society and would have welcomed such a result. But, just in case, remember we will always be here to love and care for you as you recover from your folly no matter how many times you insist you can master the frailties of man. This is how it will be for it is how it has always been. Please do us one favor please; do not ask that we participate in your utopian schemes and leave us with our dated, tried and traditional ways if for no other reason than as a place of safe haven in case your attempt to build your vision of heaven corrupts and fails as then you will need us and wish to seek our help. We cannot join your efforts and be your safety as those are mutually exclusive as your ideas are destructive to our ways. Your views of truths and solutions to problems are antithetical to ours and both cannot exist together in the same state. Ours is the state gifted us so we may live lives as dictated by Torah and G0d’s will and that is how it must be. We hold no animosity for you; we just are unable to adopt your desired changes in what must be. We will remain here and be for you a safety net for we can no more refuse you than we can refuse our right hand. Take your dreams and our best wishes and may we both attain what we seek and be there for each other when times of need or troubles darken our shores. We will pray for you even if you wish we would not, for that is our way.
