The Historically Good World Endeavor October 14, 2020
I have realized in my own work history when I begin to lead people my attitude changes immensely. I become even more of a servant, protective, and usually I am full of questions and want to know what support is available. I believe this to be true for all professions or vocations. I also look at the history and common tasks of the role or position to see how I move forward. And I look to see if I believe my own ideals, gifts, and insights might improve the environment of the work being done.
The role of our government is to fight for and put in place liberty and justice for all in the World, always has been. It is the only one of it’s kind. With these offices of elected officials comes great responsibility and leadership. As I think about being a president or even a Lower House Representative, I find it hard to do, so many things to consider. I can only imagine what must land on those desks, especially the president. And I realize as with many candidates and like most of us pushing for a bigger role comes the unknown. But when one makes it, the responsibility and reality lands with all it’s weight.
Our government, the US government is, in my opinion, at this time, the largest institution on earth as a result of it’s Constitution and serves the most people on earth including those of foreign countries. One could argue that China does, and I don’t think that I would disagree. But we are probably still the most diverse and flexible in many ways. I didn’t mean to imply in yesterdays post that I think our foreign aid will completely cease, though it may, I believe it will remain, only not as much by our federal government (what do you think?). I think businesses may become the primary aid in foreign countries in the coming years. And I do believe other countries can now as a result of America’s work help more with developing countries.
As the World, people, become more free of oppression and the security of their environment is increased more travelers come and there is more trade. There are more opportunities for human vocations, work. And with this comes the requirements of all necessary support and more work. All of this frees up their God given Spirits and a life to be expressed, lived.
Our government and this nation has been heavily labored with preserving and maintaining it’s existence since it’s inception. We have battled countries from small to large and we have battled terrorists and have incurred much financial losses as a result of fraud. With the victory of these battles has come the responsibility to maintain the victory. Also to search out other threats against liberty and justice in the World. We now have formed many international relationships by eliminating threats to democracy and we must maintain them as well. These relationships most often include services of all kinds; perhaps especially business or commercial. And this is how the existing Global Economy blossomed. I call it World Economy.
America’s and now much of the World’s task is to continue providing the means of and for liberty and justice, freedom, for all. We, including America, have not fully accomplished this yet and it shows up as poverty, pollution, and conflict. As it does elsewhere in the World. This, I have written, is an indication that God’s Kingdom, Laws, have not been fully implemented and realized yet. We must keep working for good in the World, for God’s people, children. The Believers.
However, as I said, America has expended much of her resources on this endeavor per her Constitution as presidents realize and understand the prosperity of liberty and justice and it’s return on investment. But we really don’t have much left for ourselves now. Even our infrastructure is worn out. We have also not maintained the level of investment required by our federal Government, taxes, as our Economy allows.
This is perhaps what helped get Donald Trump elected. Our work should turn much more to America now but Donald Trump has not done this. He has only withdrew us from the World and eliminated or crippled much of our Economic support systems and mismanaged Covid-19. He has mocked America’s philosophy and Constitution of liberty and justice for all by litigating historical interpretations and replacing them with his own. Most have found this to be so outlandish or so foolish as to not waste too much time on it. However, he has done great harm to our country and some of it legally.
He has tried to destroy the Spirit of our Society. In my opinion, it is nearly impossible to delineate laws which prevent or discourage every possible means of attack on our legal system. I question whether it is worth our time and effort or if we should just wait until this ends and begin to be more vigilant as to who we allow to hold offices and public positions of service to us.
