Are my actions guided by love or fear? ~David Olson
An animal manacled by fear lashes out at all hands not caring if they hold harm or help. They are blinded thus unable to make rational decisions so end up hurting and helping themselves in equal measure. They learn to be comfortable in the consistency of living afraid. Going through life biting all hands.
Our primary political parties perpetually live in fear of losing their power, their prestige, their prosperity. They bite all ideas offered by the opposite parties hand whether they are helpful or harmful for the country. The best of the country becomes secondary to their own self serving agendas. And “We the People” bleed.
I blame ourselves for our predicament. We vote with our fear perpetuating fear…a self-fulfilling prophecy.
