“Writing is a struggle against silence.” ~ Carlos Fuentes
“La escritura es una lucha contra el silencio.” ~ Carlos Fuentes
I’m very blessed to have been able to have made new friends here in Mexico City, who are activists involved with Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad, whom I will be working with to help bring an end to the violence and death in Mexico, which is caused by the US government, because of its failed “policy” regarding the so-called “War on Drugs,” as well as by the American peoples, whose refusal to stand up to our “government” to demand truth, justice, and peace, thus allowing the slaughter in Mexico to continue.
It’s not time for business and politics as usual, it’s time for real change. We live in drastic and dangerous times, under the boot of an evil, tyrannical “government”, and it’s time for the American People to think – and to act – outside the box of ordinary channels, which have all been tried and exhausted, without any results from our “government”.
“[A]ccording to Thomas [Aquinas], he [the ruler] may not take private property beyond what public need requires, though strictly speaking property is an institution of Human rather than Natural law. Above all, the rulership of one man over another must not take away the free moral agency of the subject. No man is bound to obedience in all respects and even the soul of the slave is free (a doctrine Aristotle would hardly have understood). It is for this reason that the resistance of tyranny is not only a right but a duty.” (George H. Sabine, “A History of Political Theory,” Third Edition (New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1937, 1950, 1961; 1965) pp. 255-256)
So long as I don’t break my ankle or tear a ligament in my knee walking these sidewalks in Mexico City before next weekend, I am also blessed to be the very first volunteer worker to have signed up for the upcoming Bi-National MPJD Encounter, which is being held by Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad January 26-27 2013.
God is making a way for us to change our world, and our “government”, for the better, if we will cooperate with him.
If we don’t, Satan and his minions will continue the bloodshed – only worse.
Fear is our greatest enemy, but perfect love casts out fear.
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” ~ 1 John 4:18
“Normal fear protects us; abnormal fear paralyses us. Normal fear motivates us to improve our individual and collective welfare; abnormal fear constantly poisons and distorts our inner lives. Our problem is not to be rid of fear but, rather to harness and master it.” ~ Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Abnormal rear is of Satan, not of God.
Abnormal fear is the tool of evildoers; courage is the tool of those who do good.
The followers of Christ should be fearless in the face of evildoers, especially when it comes to helping their neighbors, whom, in our case, are the good peoples of Mexico, by helping them to end the US caused drug war carnage once and for all.
All those who follow Jesus will be peacemakers, and will be blessed.
As Jesus said:
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” ~ Matthew 5:9
The many parents here in Mexico who have be forced to bury their children due to the ongoing and needless violence have lost their fear, and they demand peace with justice and dignity. There are many parents in the US, too, who have done the same, lost their fear, and who, likewise, demand truth, justice, and peace.
There is no greater pain I can imagine than the pain suffered by a parent – for the rest of their life – than having to bury their child, whether the child is 4 month, 4 years, 14 years, of 44 years of age makes no difference.
Please work together with us to end the violence in Mexico. And please help us to get truth, justice, and peace for the good peoples of both Mexico and the US, especially the parents who have lost their children due to the needless yet ongoing lies, injustices, and violence we are suffering through.
