The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice
The language is not Narn or Human or Centauri or Minbari
It speaks in the language of hope. It speaks in the language of trust.
It speaks in the language of strength and the language of compassion.
It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul.
But always it is the same voice.
It is the voice of our ancestors speaking through us.
And the voice of our inheritors waiting to be born.
It is the small, still voice that says we are One.
No matter the blood, no matter the skin,
No matter the world, no matter the star,
We are one.
No matter the pain, no matter the darkness,
No matter the loss, no matter the fear,
We are One.
Here, gathered together in common cause
We agree to recognize this singular truth and this singular rule:
That we must be kind to one another.
Because each voice enriches us and ennobles us.
And each voice lost diminishes us.
We are the voice of the universe, the soul of creation,
The fire that will light the way to a better future.
We are one.
Ambassador G’Kar of Narn
Good words, honest words, indeed, words to live by.
I make no bones about it, I am a huge Babylon 5 fan. Like the vast majority of us conservatives today Ambassador G’Kar fought selfless battle after selfless battle to regain his planets freedom from the Centari (and later their masters the Shadows) and to gain for his people the respect they deserved. He did so with the objective of never losing his humanity or identity. It complicated his good fight and he was not always entirely successful but no one who knew him ever questioned his selfless devotion to his people/cause. He wrote those words at the end of his long, troubled and distinguished career. For many years before he was able to write those words of hope and dignity, the universe itself was on fire. Few could see as clearly the storm coming as he did and no one was more hated, belittled or tortured than him for pointing it out. In the end G’Kar found reliable allies and together they were able to defeat an enemy few knew of and even fewer would be able to understand.
Few can understand the life and times and struggles undertaken and endured by G’Kar as well as true conservatives in today’s America.
When we look around the world what we see terrifies us.
The Middle East is aflame with terror, genocide, state sponsored evil and the leadership there is working overtime to export these concepts around the world. All the while our leaders do nothing to defend us from the coming storm.
France has fallen to forces intent on furthering the elimination of French culture and national identity. Wine and food are no longer French cultural expressions. They have been replaced by car burning and no go zones.
South Korea rushes towards full blown communism and the masochistic need for reunification under the terms of its terror driven northern alter ego.
Britain, allowing sharia courts to supplant a thousand years of British law, ignoring moslem rape gangs and allowing unfettered islamic immigration of military age single moslem males while paying vast sums of money in welfare to support those same moslem men and their soon found four wives, basks under the now constant threat of islamic terror.
Sweden, long the most beautiful and safest country in Europe, now enjoys its status as the rape capitol of Europe.
Venezuela, a country of unparalleled natural wealth teeters on the edge of civil war due to its now starving citizens repugnant experiment with socialism.
Much of the rest of the world is little better off.
When we look at home our fears are no less.
In the US, millions who should be coming together to improve our country seek to set in concrete a permanent divide (black v white, rich v poor, believer v atheist, gay v normal) for the sole purpose of enforcing their ideology on everyone else at any cost.
Politicians use their offices to extort millions from businesses they regulate.
The cornerstone of civilization, the nuclear family, has been effectively destroyed in the black community and is nearly so destroyed everywhere else.
Education has been reduced to a series of politically correct positions that allow for no differential thought.
Concepts like honor, dignity, sacrifice and service are little more than punchlines for late night so called comedians.
Law breakers are rewarded while the law abiding are ridiculed or even punished.
The government spies on everyone all the time and everyone knows it yet few will lift a finger to fight against the overreach.
Our leadership in-debts us past the point of reason to purchase power for themselves. Everyone knows this yet no one seeks to end the fiscal insanity.
There is so much more to note and it is so much worse than you can imagine but space limits me.
At insane personal risk G’Kar and his eventual allies fought and defeated an enemy known only as “The Shadows.” So do conservatives today. The shadows we fight today have had forty plus years to entrench themselves into every aspect of our lives. Defeating them will be no easy task. Like cockroaches they will scurry from one hiding place to another, leaping out at every opportunity to cause hate and discontent.
Conservatives must fight, often times at massive personal cost, our version of the Centari, liberal progressives and their “Shadow”masters, the deep state. Like the Centari and the Shadows, liberals/progressives and the deep state have only one rule, win at any cost. This is a difficult concept for most conservatives to understand but it is about time we at least dropped the blinders from our eyes. It is past time we recognized that we are on the political, ideological and religious extermination list.
I am no G’Kar but believe it or not, this is the quiet before the storm.
