Today, however, in an age of colleges that have replaced debate and discourse with "safe rooms" and political correctness and some are even saying the social justice warriors, no matter how far they go with their activism, display courage and heroism. Now, if you are looking at an action like that displayed by Martin Luther King, I would agree, but that isn't what they are talking about. No, they are talking about people who go the step beyond from protest and add violence and vulgar actions directed at others and they say that the ends justify the means. Even the media glosses over the rock throwing and the business burning and show glee at the chaos which upsets our way of life. Think about that for a moment, for if we eliminate general rules of law and order based upon someone's view of a justified ending, chaos and violence will continue to erupt with increasing regularity and even more negative impact. And when the media which today tries to mold opinion rather than report the news supports those claims, it becomes a horror show and voids any semblance of courage or heroism. It doesn't take courage or heroics to use violence and filth to intimidate others. But should we be surprised in a land where history is squelched, understanding of what a democratic republic is has no meaning and young people have no clue about the circumstances under which life in an earlier time was experienced? Of course not.
Let's get real again, America. Courage is an action where we put aside fear in order to carry out a difficult action that carries out a worthwhile and valid purpose. Heroism is an action where that courage is displayed while putting others first. And it is not just applicable to fear by violence, but also much more subtle things like the curse of America today which I call political correctness. It takes courage in America today to stand up against the bullying nature of political correctness, yet as children of God we are supposed to always stand for the truth. Kowtowing to mobocracy and "groupthink" intimidation is never easy, but if we Americans expect to keep American free and have a future where individualism shines, not collectivism and its impact of imprisoning us by mental coercion not chains, we better wake up. For if we don't, the intimidation and mental coercion will eventually be chains, indeed, and America's future will be tyranny for all. Don't say you haven't been warned.
