Dirt Begets Dirt

I have often enough written that things never change. It simply repeats itself over, and over again. Where I write most of this is in (www.faithingodministries.net). I want to show it in this piece because it was on my mind and will not go away. I will concentrate on just one era in history and show how our era is almost the same for one particular individual.

               Look at Julius Caesar and his era. Julius Caesar was an emperor that was loved (depending on which history book you read) and, according to some, hated. He ruled an enormous empire that spanned many countries and continents. He ruled with an iron fist and was bathed in much glory. He had buildings and stadiums, around the Roman Empire, named after him. He had money with his likeness on it, which is mentioned in the Bible. He had everything imaginable, including many close friends. Most of these friends would stick by him through thick or thin and would do, as all under his control, his bidding with no questions asked. Some people under his control lost their life for him but, to Caesar, they were just fodder in his venture for greater status.

               As I look at this era I will focus on only one-person, ex-President Trump. According to whom you listen to, which periodical you read, which broadcast you tune to, etc. Trump wanted to be great, not like Caesar because I do not think he have read about him nor know much about him, like Putin or the Chinese leader or North Korean leader or anyone that is a dictator and wield enormous power (there are many).

               Trump amassed a large amount of people that wanted the same things he wanted but with him as their leader. Like Caesar, the people were loyal to him, and he would not accept anyone that was not loyal. These people, as of today would do anything for him, up to and including to kill. These people wanted him in his position forever. Some believe he is so great that some propose to have his picture on a piece of money. They even tried to have him on Mt. Rushmore. Is he Caesar?

               Putin escaped assignation attempts. He never let anyone get close to him and even have food tasters. He remembers what he and his associates did in the Russian Intelligence Service. But, getting back to Caesar, his best buddy got to him. Remember the phrase ‘et tu brute’? When Caesar was stabbed to death he hollered ‘you too Brutus’.

               We have seen in the January 6th Committee hearings the many Trump loyalists speak against him. A couple of the backstabbers are trying to soften their blows so that they can gain some future endeavor they have planned. Like Caesar, his close associates are doing him in. My belief, if you did not throw mud in the first place, you would never have to worry about mud being thrown at you.

               The world never changes except for the date, individual and situation. Of course, you cannot live in a shroud, shielding yourself from everything, but you can do good and not worry as much about being stabbed in the back. Dirt begets dirt.

The Cult

Cult: An instance of great veneration of a person, ideal, or thing, especially as manifested by a body of admirers.  2. The object of such devotion

Revere: To regard with respect tinged with awe; venerate

Venerate: To regard or treat with reverence; revere

As I look at the Impeachment trial and, before that, the House hearings I still say what I said before and that is, what we have here is a cult. Look at the definition and think about what is going on in Congress and at the White House. It can not be said that it is not what it is. The head of a cult does what he or she wants to do when he or she wants to do it and in whatever way he or she wants.

This cult reminds me of Jim Jones who killed all his members in Jonesville, Guyana in 1978 but he started the Peoples Temple in Indiana during the 1950s. His members were doing whatever he told them to do and in 1978 died for him willingly. Jim Jones did not like the press and tried to kill them along with his people. Jim Jones always did what he wanted to do including fathering many children with many women.

All this smells like our government, all three branches of government plus the civilian supporters. They are in a cult and do not want to see outside their large sect. If there is something or someone they do not like, they will, in some way, try to get rid of the problem. It is what the leader wants or like and the members will do their best to ensure it is so. The leader cannot do or say anything wrong. Any law he fabricates is righteous to the members because they cannot  see the fallacy in it.

At first, I was thinking that the President wanted to emulate the Russian leader or the North Korean leader or the Chinese leader or others like them, but I looked again and realized the grifter wanted a cult. At his campaign rallies, the crowds are over the top and, like most cults, they are mostly young. Like Congress they do not want to hear anything said against him. They will fight to their death.

As far as the government is concerned, it is hard to put a finger on why they admire this cult leader. Of course, the cult leader has moved his people into prime positions so that he has control over all parts of the government. Sounds like a Russian conspiracy to me. But it could just be part of the cult.

Either way, I am a person that think for myself and detest others thinking for me. That is the very reason a cult would never work for me and I cannot follow a grifter like our current President. He has his cult members, especially Congress, wrapped around his little finger. His party is naive about the ways of the grifter and is caught up in the web while listening to his canting voice.

The President now have a broad black mark on his legacy and, as I have said in my other blog      (  www.faithingodministries.net ), God will have His say and the followers will go down with him. I don’t like cults and don’t see how intelligent people can be drawn into them. How can people be like sheep being led to the slaughter? Being in a cult is only good for one person, the leader and all others are like the sheep.
