I believe we are in a religious war, being fought culturally. Words are the bullets and friendly fire is killing us all. We're not fighting with Christians or Jews or with any of the religions most people have heard about. The religion we face is statism.
It's a faith based belief that the state is a force for good in this world. While children are abused by parents who force them to attend church and accept a faith they are too young to understand, the State is the ultimate abuser of children by forcing them to attend federally mandated public schools (a sort of church for the state) 5 times a week for twelve straight years, where they are indoctrinated to believe the state is benevolent, infallible, and necessary.
Books like Animal Farm and 1984 were allegories for their time and the real world they captured and fictionalized with their books has only grown more evil, more controlling, and more difficult to see. There is a fearful culture, a disappointingly large portion of the public, that sees truth as an enemy; an enemy to comfort, an enemy to faith, and an enemy to routine. We need to ally ourselves with the truth and this is my attempt at doing so.
