Greetings Fellow Seekers of Knowledge,
My original concept of operations for my Sunday Contemplation was an article/post on some aspect of life, unfortunately it never really was that, it was more of a weekend roundup. As this is the last Sunday of February, I will wrap up the weekend, on today’s Sunday Contemplation I will end with a few words of thought, but starting 1 March 1914, Saturday I will do a week in review article. I hope you enjoy the new format.
— It looks like the violence in Ukraine is about to die down, new elections are supposed to be held in May, an interim President has been appointed, and political prisoners have been released. At least, we hope this harkens to a return to the “Rule of Law”.
— FCC tries to do their best Soviet Union impression, but fails, at least for now. Bravo to the FCC for so blatantly trying to supply “monitors” in news rooms around the country. These “monitors” are/were akin to the political commissars in the Soviets military units, factories, and any other “authorized” gathering.
— Poor dumb Scotland, a new law passed unanimously by the Scottish Parliament will do what no one thought possible, usurp parental rights. Make no mistake this is not “for the children” this is for the state. Not like you were not warned, you were told, give up your guns (you remember those things right? The things that your ancestors paid in blood to keep) for “safety” you will be giving up your children and your money next. You shouldn’t worry though, not every child in the highlands will be taken back to Edinburgh only the prettiest, smartest, fastest, you know, the ones that will benefit the state. As long as you keep your mouth shut, make sure your daughter is ugly, and your son doesn’t play any sports, and of course they aren’t too smart, you should be fine. You don’t think that is their intention? Your naivety is sweet, but do you really think spending 25 pounds sterling per child will prevent abuse? Seriously? That is enough money to find the most desirable children to indoctrinate, not the children most at risk for abuse. The rest of the United Kingdom, should be in the streets, like Kiev, make no mistake your children will be next, you too willingly gave up your guns. You march happily into the tyranny that your grandfathers fought so hard against, you let parliament take away rights that were acknowledged by the sovereign as god-given, unalienable rights. Soon the piper will want his pay. but maybe you never liked Junior much anyway, besides Doctor Who is about to start.
For today’s contemplation,
I want to talk about the beauty of nature, the other day, I was taking a stroll in the copse of woods behind my home, it is not very big, but full of life. Walking through the forest, makes me feel like a bit like a stranger, perhaps I should spend more time in this tiny grove. It is one of the few quiet places. There are squirrels, cardinals, and a fox that lives out there, no doubt many more aspects of nature reside there. While I am out walking, I often wonder why a forest is so comforting, the trees seem to give off a warmth that is unavailable in our hi-tech world, there is a quiet that cannot be found with noise canceling headphones, a peace that can not be found in a park. Perhaps today when twilight comes I will walk again amongst the trees, and find some solace in the peace that is there.
