Dr. King’s two minutes to you:
On Earth in 2015, men and fathers are in literal planet-changing contest of virtues held dear by 99.99% of humanity versus a .01% oligarchy who annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions with:
Men: the day will come to be recognized for our actions in this contest. Consider your highest calling as men, fathers, and children from Divine Origin. Strength, honor, and humor are much of what men and fathers are all about, with these virtues having much to contribute for victory of:
- Peace, as the 99.99% realize they’ve been lied-into unlawful wars by the same nations who colonized every part of the planet, then engaged in two world wars among themselves.
- Prosperity, as what we use for money is created debt-free for direct payment of public goods and services, and as at-cost credit to allow good-faith transparent experimentation to optimize public benefits rather than oligarchic .01% looting in the tens of trillions.
- Truth, as media work to report on good-faith exploration of what’s possible for all the inhabitants of our beautiful and currently viciously dominated planet Earth (consider here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here for current good-faith work to reveal challenges and possibilities).
Strength: Act how you can best contribute your virtues, unique to you. Considering this contest has existed for all history (and here), strength includes persistence within the paradox of patient activism. Be who you most strongly are, and you will contribute your part.
Honor: Connected to strength, this is the courage to fully express and experience who you say/stand that you are. Those with a religious/philosophical/spiritual life are compelled to live it, not merely provide lip-service. Honor allows one to move forward in good-faith effort. Again, this is consistent with what one wants to be accounted for thinking, speaking, and taking action when this contest is over.
Humor: Again all in connection, given the facts of this history-long contest, honor for good-faith effort, and that we humans are mere guests on Earth removed from all evidence of management, hey, a sense of humor seems both required and contributive. Humor, as with all virtues, is unique to your own beautiful and powerful self-expression. Have fun with it… so to speak. I’ve tried with satire
Note: I make all factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History, with all economics factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences. I invite readers to empower their civic voices with the strongest comprehensive facts most important to building a brighter future. I challenge professionals, academics, and citizens to add their voices for the benefit of all Earth’s inhabitants.
