    All emotionally healthy people desire freedom for themselves. This is a true, common ground for all human beings. No one wants to be enslaved.

    Thus, if it violates our personal morality when someone tries to enslave us, it must then follow that it is immoral for us to enslave anyone else. Can we each admit that this is true? It should seem so, but the reality of enslavement reveals a great divide in the human race. Slavery takes many forms but all of them exist because of an emotional and spiritual deficit in the hearts of the perpetrators and their supporters.

    The deficit is simple. Those who wish to dominate the lives of others—and thus enslave them to varying degrees—simply do not care that they are causing their victims pain. It is a deficit of love, of compassion, of kindness, of sensitivity, of responsibility, of truth, and of self-awareness. It makes no difference if one is a slaver or a supporter of slavery or if one simply ignores the reality of slavery—the same deficit applies to all.

    Slavery is not limited to the physical entrapment of a human’s body. Slavery exists on a large and complicated continuüm of oppression. Minds are enslaved as well as bodies. Although self-inflicted spiritual, emotional, and intellectual enslavement is a tragedy, it is the malicious manipulation of others that causes the most harm.

    The world is divided in 2024 along the great demarcation of freedom versus slavery. Tyrants have recruited and entranced millions of human beings to believe that limiting or eliminating the freedoms of others is both appropriate and necessary for the good of the world.

    The acolytes of slavery—the individuals who are working to destroy freedom—are without excuse because no one can ever be forced to harm another. We are each autonomous, even when it seems that we are not because we each possess an inviolable soul of goodness that never stops guiding us toward a world of tenderness, kindness, compassion, and love.

    Our souls know the truth. Our souls are embedded in the fabric of a loving universe and are inextricably connected to a quantum field that one could describe as the mind and body of the Creator of the Universe. Atheists may reject the idea of a transcendent God who is intimately embracing each of us, but they have no logical explanation of where love and virtue and beauty came from. A black void of nothingness? Something cannot spring from nothing.

    The human desire for freedom is itself a transcendent reality that is the ultimate hope for the citizens of a suffering world. A great awakening of conscience and heart must enter the minds of those who enslave. That new awareness will require humility and the acknowledgment that a moral high ground is built upon an honest respect and love for all people.

    The tragedy of mass enslavement is first enabled by the internal acceptance of mass delusions fueled by emotional and spiritual deficits. The tyrants of the world use the bodies and minds of others to support their tyranny. They cannot enslave the world by themselves.

    Each person in the world today needs to ask themselves hard questions about the reality of freedom as the necessary prerequisite for a healthy and peaceful world.

    If you find yourself on the side of tyranny, what fuels your willingness to remove sacred freedoms from vast numbers of people? What drives you to abandon the freedoms of speech and religion? The freedom to dissent, to disagree, to question the status quo engendered by a monolithic and compromised media?

    If you find yourself on the side of tyranny, what causes you to feel contempt for half the world; to become angry at differing opinions and brand them as “evil disinformation”? What justifies an ever-expanding government overreach and domination of the lives of your friends and family members who disagree with you? Lest you forget, that same tyranny is gazing upon you with an all-seeing eye.

    We cannot ignore the end-game; the final consequences of the expansion of tyranny, both from our governments and the oligarchs who support the removal of sacred human rights. We must remember the tragedy of totalitarianism in the twentieth century: the hundreds of millions of people who died or suffered under the callous boots of our brothers and sisters who stopped caring.

    The dark world of tyranny is a cancer that has stained our history for millennia. It didn’t start with Marxism or Nazism or Sharī‘ah Islam. Those thought systems are only the most recent plagues upon humanity. For most of human history, slavery was “normal” and human life was virtually worthless.

    With the reality of that brutal history, it is thus profoundly exceptional that the American Founding Fathers gathered the combined wisdom of illuminated men and women. With that wisdom, they created a new nation based on a Declaration of Independence and Constitution that inspired millions upon millions of suffering people from all over the world to emigrate to America.

    The forces of totalitarianism—the forces of dark and evil slavery—do not want humanity to value the exceptionalism of America’s founding and growth. For a hundred years at least, proponents of atheistic Marxism have invaded the social fabric of America’s freedoms and have poisoned the well to such a degree that half the country now believes that America is irredeemable.

    Yet what country did a better job than America in the last five thousand years? What other country offered as many freedoms to its citizens and to the millions of immigrants who built new lives of freedom after escaping from deprivation, wars, and a variety of hells across the globe? America’s citizens were not particularly special or different. Remember: America was built by non-Americans who arrived and became Americans, united with a common vision and living in a free society built upon Judeo-Christian values and the freedoms of the US Constitution.

    Even today, as totalitarians who despise American freedoms try to tear down America by opening its borders to the ten million illegal aliens who flooded into our country in the last three years, an inescapable fact emerges. With the exception of many thousands—or millions—of hostile, military-age men who crossed the border with evil deeds in mind, a significant portion of the ten million came across the border seeking a better life in America, and are indeed good-hearted people who would benefit from a proper introduction to America.

    They didn’t go to other countries. They came to America—the land of the free. It is tragic, however, that they came as they did; without the traditional pathways of education to become proud American citizens and without any limitations that would preserve the health of our country. America is being overwhelmed and the invasion of illegal immigrants will not end well.

    Lest something think that it’s cruel to place limits on immigration, just ask these questions: “How many are too many? Ten million? Fifty million? Three hundred million? What is the impact on the American citizens already here?”

    The infrastructure and wiring of a free American society is under severe attack in 2024. Physical tragedies may well unfold in the next twelve months, instigated by the tyrants who care not a whit about the “ordinary” citizens of America. They are as uncaring toward their acolytes of slavery as they are to their victims. Tyrants use people and care only for themselves.

    That fact must illuminate the minds of both classical liberals and conservatives in 2024. Americans must reassess and realize that they have been lied to by implacable totalitarians whose hearts have been buried under a lust for power and money.

    The ultra-rich tyrants and oligarchs are not our friends. Corrupt politicians who vote to misuse and harm the American people are not our friends. Deep state bureaucrats who wield their unelected power ruthlessly are not our friends. The mainstream media is not our friend. Many college professors are not our friends.

    Members of the “tyrant class” are practicing the time-honored strategy of accusing their opponents of the evils that they embody. If you want to find people who want to destroy freedom, look to the tyrants.

    If America and the free world are to survive, the divide between good-hearted liberals and conservatives must be healed, based on a mutual acceptance of the enduring principles of freedom. The task is hard for both camps because both liberals and conservatives have grown used to the idea that the other side is infected with “evil, stupid, racist Nazis who want to destroy freedom.”

    It is particularly hard for classical liberals because the media, academia, the entertainment complex, and the K-12-University educational system have been increasingly influenced by anti-freedom forces. Those forces use masterfully clever language to convince Americans that traditional American values are monstrous and must be eliminated or radically transformed.

    This reality places a unique burden on freedom-loving liberals to look beyond the divisive messages coming from the tyrant class. Are conservative parents, children, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends really that bad? Can we really trust a tyrant class of oligarchs who want to eliminate our freedoms, and have already done so, in a provable, shocking fashion? To counter those messages, alternative media outlets exist but they must be chosen carefully.

    2024 is the year that we must, for the survival of the world, heal our political divide and reject tyranny and slavery in all its forms. We can do that because we share the goodness of humanity. We share a desire for our sacred freedoms to expand and flourish.

    We are, after all, members of a magnificent human family.
