“Gun Violence!”, scream the daily headlines in Chicago but nary a whisper of, “no talking to the police”, is the real wind in the sails of so many continued incidents of shootings. We have marches and photo opportunities before hungry news cameras looking for stories to divert attention from the ever worsening unattended state of a moribund national economy. The fact that shootings in the city as a rule are far below what they were in decades past along with the fact that the new mayor as part of the Federal ruling structure is continuing to cut budgets for crime prevention are supposed to be overlooked. And perhaps, given the rising incidents of unwarranted lethal violence inflicted by the police against all strata’s of society, it may indeed be understandable that those at street level will not aid the enforcement of the law at large through the jeopardy of their own safety, however immoral that stance may be.
Yet it is a thousand times more unjust to continue policies that deemphasize the presence and will of the majority in favor of an artificially engendered cult of official victimhood. Considering that in the last ten years the focus of those in the highest offices of power have sought to install and favor the rapid growth of government organs that seek to wrench this nation from its moral foundations for the sake of an elitist global utopia favoring centralized rule by the unelected. Like rainwater through a roof that has rotted away, these currents stream down ceaselessly corroding and dissolving what once seemed like normal life into a perpetual sense of instability and uncertainty conducted by the whim of the daily agenda of an unseen polit-bureau. The ‘guns’ don’t seem to be a problem when they are funneled into a foreign region for political aggrandizement in support of a ‘national interest’ but they become a well-publicized anathema through events that contain more theatrical artifice as opposed to investigative fact.
The most overlooked fact of the issue is that a ‘gun’ in any of its many manifestations needs a finger upon the trigger and an agenda behind it that points it toward a particular target. The real issue that remains purposefully unspoken it just who has the most guns and who they intend to point them at! Considering that the anomaly of that loathsome entity of DHS which seems established mainly to humiliate and intimidate the general citizenry while arming up with enough weaponry and ammunition to domestically massacre every citizen and illegal resident within the national borders six times over. The whole situation becomes a play of whispers within the general population versus those put forth by the rule of federal government as to what the next staged event will be in terms of conflict that will provide a ‘shock doctrine’ remedy to benefit the destruction of the nation as a whole. The daily faire of a virulent level of formulaic social patterning though the incessantly ocular perspective of the popular media competitively showcasing ‘black’ over ‘white’ suggesting a manufactured schism leading to what appears to be a desire for a violent race based conflict.
What occurs in the various ‘ghettos’ of America, ‘black’ urban or ‘white’ suburban, is mischief plain and simple. It seems time to call out these agent provocateurs and retake the public forums in order to confront them publicly with their crimes. The time is long past for continued whispers but rather a determined call for taking the initiative by proactive moral action.
