The Absurdity Principle – Falls

Absurdity

When everything becomes absurd, nothing is. Think of Alice Wonderland, a country at war, under occupation, a place where logic, accountability, norms, and principles are adrift. Now, consider what we are living through. But if we keep faith, the absurdity principle falls.

Consider the sense of unreality – or absurdity – that we are all living through.

We have a border that is not a border, honorable horse patrol agents doing exceptional work, attacked on fictional grounds – called “racist” – by a president, vice president, Democrats with no credibility or honor. Absurd.

We have citizens arming to the teeth, record minorities and women in Democrat-led cities from New York, Chicago, and Detroit to Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle – as a president, vice president, and Democrats weaken police, divert resources, dishonor sacrifice, and paint the 99 percent who are selfless with a one percent brush. Absurd.

We have Americans and allies by the thousands – yes, thousands – still desperately trying to get out of a murderous, terror-led Afghanistan, as Biden’s team says all is well, look away, care not. Yet we do care, will care, must care, and we will not look away. Absurd.

We have prices at our local grocery stores rising fast, as a disoriented Biden, dissembling Harris, disengaged cabinet, dishonest Congress say no inflation, that debt does not matter, taxes can be raised, and more spending is good for “unity” – without one Republican vote. Absurd.

We have statements ranging from COVID is “hell on earth” and masks mandatory, to the federal government must inject you or no job; we have religious fervor built around ignoring religious rights, speech by government drowning the American People’s rights to freely speak. Absurd.

We have attempted to assure leftwing rule – following the neofascist playbook – by those who aim to “pack” (that is, subvert through politics) the Supreme Court for “rule of law.” That is like putting your best friends on a jury to assure objectivity, knowing they are not objective. Absurd.

We have fines for Republicans in Congress and horrified glares for citizens without masks by elites who attend political fundraisers, presidential birthday parties, MET and Emmy galas, beauty parlors, and restaurants without masks because they are the chosen. Absurd.

We have a fence around the Capitol for months, erected again for a few hundred protestors, to protect the chosen from democratic protests, while thousands ran wild, ravaged businesses, federal buildings, churches, homes in 200 cities – and were untouched. Absurd.

We have more than 96,000 young people dead in the past year from drug overdoses, an open border that allows fentanyl, heroin, meth, cocaine, synthetics, and high purity marijuana into this country, killers that top all leading social ailments and threats. Absurd and tragic.

We watch drug-related carnage, thinking it will not find those we know – but it will. Democrats and libertarians look away, legalizing dangerous narcotics, devastating the lives of 200,000 parents, 400,000 grandparents, countless siblings, cousins, and heartbroken friends. Drug legalization is death by disinterest, unthinking and immoral, out of touch, absurd.

Media trade integrity for celebrity, as modernity is defined by absurdity, each day a new installment, and the sense of respect for work, law, decency, history, integrity, sacrifice gone.

Truth is timeless. Some values demand attention. We must return to things “as they should be,” where love, logic, reality, integrity, experience, facts, faith, and respect matter.

My bet is we will get there. That said, the slope back up is steep. The reality principle – with socialists controlling White House, Senate, and House – is in shadow, absurdity on display. But the clock ticks, time moves, pendulums swing, and the world turns. It is even now.

Absurdity is absurd – by definition. This Democrat leadership qualifies. They are out of sync with America. The Mad Hatter is pure fiction, necessarily filled with inherent contradiction.

So, keep your faith and your compass. We will get through this scary chapter. When all seems absurd, truth most matters. We only need to elevate it to close the back cover on Alice. The absurdity principle – absurdity as normal – falls to those who stay focused on reality.

I tend to think that Joe Hidin’ Biden is the biggest absurdity I have seen as a high level National leader, altho Hillary Clinton could have easily nudged him out of first place if the DemocRats had gotten their vote rigging in order sooner. Anyone know what Hillary called her broom closet? /…… the Garage!

The MSM normalizes and celebrates absurdity. Anything that is common sense is what is painted as absurd. They are the monster destroying our world.

Only one correction: there’s nothing mainstream about the MSM. They are radical, rabid propagandists, completely out of touch with real American values, and totally in the minority. Don’t grant them any honor by labeling them mainstream.

I must say that the GOP did not do much while they held the House, the Senate, and the White House. I would appreciate it if the party I have supported my entire voting life had more backbone and could compromise, not across the aisle, but within their own party, to get things done and really keep America strong. President Trump could not do everything by himself. I start the GOP blame game with Jeff Sessions and the Russian probe that crippled President Trump’s presidency for over 2 years.

President Trump did the best he could with the cards he was dealt. Unfortunately, like some comments have stated, he DID NOT have full Republican support during his term. POLI-TICKS were and are in control.

I have supported the Republican party my whole life also. I am coming to an end of it tho and am thinking strongly of just running Independant. I have found that our Republicans stand around and do NOTHING and when the time comes for them to stand against the democrats, excuse my language, but they just never had the balls to do so. And with our wonderful Republican President Trump, they had opportunity to stand (which they did for a little bit) but when Trump needed them to back him against the dems (ESPECIALLY WITH THE FIXED ELECTION IN 2020) they threw him under the bus. (I’m thinking of Mitch McConnell for one and here in Illinois my favorite hypocrite, Adam Kinzinger) Look at all President Trump accomplished without their help. Can you imagine what he could have done with full backing?

Yes, I too think that the DemocRat Party is out of sync with American citizens … but I think that has been the situation since the LBJ presidency. And it is becoming more absurd as time passes. But I think the News Media helps them remain that way and it shows in their gradual slide in to absurdity.

I’m not sure whether MSM follows DNC, or DNC follows MSM? Either way, the absurd is the track they are on running us full-bore into catastrophe.

None of what is happening should surprise us. God wrote us all a book, told us what was coming, laid it out in detail.

He cautioned us about the depravity of man(humans), our hard hearts, what we would be like in the last days, (II Timothy chapter 3) If you read that and don’t see the world we live in, I don’t have an answer for you. Matthew 24 should be read as well. Lawless will abound. Pestilences, famines, earthquakes, the word here for earthquake can also describe weather related activity, kingdom against kingdom, look at China. Saber rattling with India, Russia, Japan, Philippines, Korea, US, Taiwan, etc., nation against nation. The Greek for nation is ethnos. In English, ethnicity. Maybe it’s time to invite God back into our Country?

Look at the middle East. Israel’s primary last days enemies are on their northern border. Ezekiel 38 and 39. All God said to us is coming to pass. Believe it or not, it’s your choice. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord

Revelations, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, and more all speak of these last days. I’m also a Mormon and the Book of Mormon with The Bible speaks it ALL! It IS ALL coming to pass!!! Yes, we MUST serve the Lord, do not fear, be prepared! Thank you for your words!

You are correct that God’s word says it all, tells his children what the outcome will be and like you stated everyone has a choice to make: HEAVEN or HELL, they do exist.

Never worry about who will be offended if you speak the truth.
Worry about who will be misled, deceived, & destroyed if you don’t.

To live in Alice and Wonderlands mad hatter world, one must keep his own sanity to succeed. Unfortunately at every level of your day, Biden’s edicts fueling average Americans to stop believing their is any hope that sanity will return in a timely manner. Yes as our liberty and freedom evaporate with our political Communist Democrats firmly in control one must put forth extraordinary patience since it seems the Republicans only want us to give them campaign money to fight this evil they say they will do if I only contribute to their campaigns. Every time the Republicans get control they seem to follow the Democrats in a spend frenzy of their own. America needs patriotic conservative to fight the scourge we see every day with both parties.

It ain’t called “the UniParty” because their actions are different, they differ only in the verbiage used to hoodwink our campaign funds.

Well said but I pray this “absurdity” turns into a brutal reality for Democrats in the mid terms next year or we really are sunk as a country.
