Pragmatists and Idealists At War
This story is so fitting for today’s world. It’s been told for decades in various forms, if not centuries. It was included in an episode of The Closer, Season 2, Episode 15 : Serving The King.
Asst. Chief Brenda Lee Johnson explains that she heard this story while working at the CIA. Part of a Lecture for Agents.
The Struggle To Control Civilization
We’re always fighting the same fight. Using the Dark Ages as an example.
On the One side there’s the Pragmatic King, who was greedy and power hungry. And basically took advantage of people when ever he could. On the other side you had the idealistic Church, forcing everyone to follow the same rules, believe the same things and all that.
Neither the King or the Church were ever completely right or wrong. Both sides ended up doing terrible things to get what they wanted. But the point of the story was this…
That this struggle from the Dark Ages has been going on forever. The Church and the King might take on different forms and philosophies, but they would always fight each other. Pragmatists and Idealists. At most times you’re better off standing on the sidelines and letting them duke it out.
But every once in a while, one side or the other decides it must be better to just blow up the whole world just to get it’s own way. And when that happens, you can’t stand on the sidelines anymore. You have to pick a team.
The problem is, neither The King nor the Church are truly fighting for the People. When that happens, the People need to fight for themselves against the King and the Church.
Today We The People need to fight back against both teams. You can’t sit on the sidelines and allow the team undermining your rights stack the deck against your rights. The team fighting for your Democracy is trying to make sure your voice is heard, not suppressed by nutcase false and unproven allegations. Vote for the team making sure everyone’s vote counts, Vote Blue.
