"I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is accomplished! Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." (Luke 12:49-53)
As the economy sinks ever deeper into the "Bottomless Abyss," Food Bank shelves across our nation are becoming ever more bare. So many among us are suffering in silence, ashamed that somehow they may be responsible for the plight in which they now find themselves.
Millions have become as living corpses; the closed doors and shuttered windows of their homes have become their coffins, where they wait in dread for such time when they will be exhumed from their "graves" through foreclosure and reincarnated as pariahs.
The "Helpless" have become invisible to those around them who avert their eyes, grateful for the moment that it is not they who are down, unaware that they, too, are only "standing in line."
Our self-proclaimed leaders appear to be working desperately to assuage the situation, but it is only an illusion, a Fabian tactic, as it were. We have gone beyond the Point of No Return and have crossed, not the Rubicon, but the River Styx. Their pseudo-altruistic rhetoric is not to inspire hope but, rather, it is a fear-generated charade to save their own respective life stations when the burden upon the people becomes so onerous, that the defenses of the prosperous will collapse under the onslaught of the violent forces of Necessity.
The Fire which was foretold has been kindled, and the Winds of War are beginning to fan the Flames which will drive us to where our Fate is inescapable.
