“Notice that the word “fear” is bracketed alongside the difficulties with Mr. Brown, Mrs. Jones, the employer, and the wife. This short word somehow touches about every aspect of our lives. It was an evil and corroding thread; the fabric of our existence was shot through with it. It set in motion trains of circumstances which brought us misfortune we felt we didn’t deserve. But did not we, ourselves, set the ball rolling? Sometimes we think fear ought to be classed with stealing. It seems to cause more trouble.
We reviewed our fears thoroughly. We put them on paper, even though we had no resentment in connection with them. We asked ourselves why we had them. Wasn’t it because self-reliance failed us? Self-reliance was good as far as it went, but it didn’t go far enough. Some of us once had great self-confidence, but it didn’t fully solve the fear problem, or any other. When it made us cocky, it was worse.
Perhaps there is a better way – we think so. For we are now on a different basis; the basis of trusting and relying upon God. We trust infinite God rather than our finite selves. We are in the world to play the role He assigns. Just to the extent that we do as we think He would have us, and humbly rely on Him, does He enable us to match calamity with serenity.
We never apologize to anyone for depending upon our Creator. We can laugh at those who think spirituality the way of weakness. Paradoxically, it is the way of strength. The verdict of the ages is that faith means courage. All men of faith have courage. They trust their God. We never apologize for God. Instead we let Him demonstrate, through us, what He can do. We ask Him to remove our fear and direct our attention to what He would have us be. At once, we commence to outgrow fear.”

The UK General Election has played out by the ruling powers dealing the fear card very powerfully. The UK is a theocracy, the Head of State is the Head of the Established Religion and in the facts of Britain’s Imperial past, old paradigms are clinging on.
The SNP are playing out their part and have failed in their attempt to lock out the previous Executive.
The Labour Party have never recovered from the Iraq War.
The Lib Dems have paid the price demanded by the Sacrificial Template that is triggered whenever dying paradigms are temporarily resurrected.
The fact that voter turnout seems higher than I might have mistakenly mentioned in a video as my past general impression of election health, I now take as an optimistic sign that perhaps more people are awakening to the emergency that faces mankind.
However, despite the shocks and apparent overturning of pundit polls, it remains to be seen whether we are all still stuck in the Einstein insanity of doing the same thing expecting a different outcome, or not.
My message remains clear, the UK Constitution, the living body of the nation is sick. The previous government clung on in the face of historic MP corruption, media corruption, Church sexual abuses, celebrity sexual abuses, authority figures’ child abuse circles, bank meltdown, NHS meltdown of patient trust and Trust failure, police failures of trust and investigative authority, utility cartels and price fixing, supermarket fiscal misconduct and food contamination, 70% of prison inmates incarcerated because of crimes relating to drugs and alcohol, an epidemic of obesity and secondary diabetes.
The sickness is global, it is a breakdown of the post- modern vision, it is stuck-addiction©. A new Era beckons, the old Era is hamstrung by old entrenchments and fear.
Tribalism is a fact of mankind’s history. Tribalism is now sick, a block to Human understanding without it finds a real calibration that the double faced intellect can submit to genuinely, to be healed.
