A Modern Jeffersonian Vision of the Future,
Through the Lens of History, World Prophecies, and Spirituality Within Reason
We, the people of the world, shall establish governments that are actually of the people, by the people, and for the people, and such governments will enable the humble and meek to inherit the earth. It is but a matter of time, and awareness of the truth.
However, the kind of truth humanity needs is not what they hear most. For example, just consider the following truths:
"As for the best leaders, the people do not notice them. When the best leader's work is accomplished, the people say, 'We did it ourselves!'" -- Lao Tzu, The Book of Tao
"Be wise and consider the ways of the ants, which having no guide, overseer or ruler, provide food in the summer and gather in the harvest." -- Proverbs 6:6-8
Such truth and wisdom seems odd today, considering that most people seek conquering heroes as leaders. Thus they allow themselves to be divided and polarized by partisans who fight for the throne of personal power, and they believe that they have no choice but to follow such self-important leaders. They just don't see how or why that has led us to this state of conflict, division, and Tribulation.
The sad irony is that the truth will liberate and empower all human beings when they listen to one who knows. For he is from your midst and a fellow companion in Tribulation, and even though he doesn't seek the limelight, from behind the scenes he tells you the truth that all humanity needs to hear.
The truth is that the majority of people in the world who are humble, gentle, kind, generous, peaceful and meek will inherit the earth, whether they are religious or not. But, in order for that to happen, the political and religious leaders of the world must be corrected, and arrogant, militant hypocrites who fight offensively in the name of religion and patriotism must be exposed and corrected by he who best serves the Spirit of truth.
One of America's greatest Founders, Thomas Jefferson, tried to deal with the same kind of hypocrisy that plagues the world today. For instance, Jefferson said that theocratic clergy “have been a very formidable engine against the civil and religious rights of man," and Jefferson swore “upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
Moreover, Jefferson spoke out not only against the tyranny of hypocritical Theocrats who believed their religion entitled them to rule. He also spoke out against the tyranny of greedy, self-important, rich Plutocrats who believed their wealth entitled them to rule.
Unfortunately, Theocrats and Plutocrats are relentless, and they found a way to rule anyway. And, even though they encountered resistance and temporary defeat between 1933 and 1969, since then and especially since 1982 they have succeeded completely. Consequently, the wealthiest few rule and the great majority of us suffer the consequences, because Jeffersonian principles, which Abraham Lincoln said are "the axioms of a free society," have been utterly ignored by the Theocrats and Plutocrats who control government.
This message addresses those problems very frankly and straightforwardly, and it shows all people how to liberate and empower yourselves and establish good governments that will actually be of, by, and for the people -- governments that will promote the general welfare, use the common wealth for the common good, respect all religions equally, and guarantee equal rights, equal opportunities and genuine freedom of religion, including freedom from theocratic imposition.
This message cannot be imposed on the world. It must be recognized and acknowledged by humanity. For it proclaims that wealth is not a license to rule; that no particular religion or nation or race or culture should claim superiority; that we are all created equal in the sight of God, which by any other name is the Great Spirit-Parent of all human beings, the eternal Holy One, also known as the Universal Cosmic Consciousness.
It is but a matter of time before this promised judgment and intercession will finally be acknowledged by enough people that the pen will finally prove mightier than the sword, and the truth will prevail. We can and will overcome.
