Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.
Well now, here’s an interesting word. I was pretty sure of the definition, but I looked it up just so I wouldn’t look stupid. I had it, which made me feel good. And of course, I always look up the etymology as well. This one has a Latin root, incohare, which means to begin.
So the word has come to mean anything that is in the beginning stages, rudimentary, not fully formed. For example, an inchoate language would be one that has very few words, like “Me Tarzan, you Jane.” I suppose that’s all they really needed for some time 🙂
Many people believe, and I tend to agree, that we are living in an inchoate anarchy here in America. And no, it’s not Trump’s fault. You have to understand that the only things the media publish about him are the faux pas he tends to make. They aren’t saying much about the booming economy. It doesn’t fit their agenda.
In any event, anarchy is a total lack of rule by law. The “Resist” movement insists on doing away with laws they don’t like, and allowing the ignoring of laws that won’t go away. They want to repeal the Second Amendment, for instance. That would be a sad day indeed. And please, I’m not looking for debates or arguments here. In fact, I most likely won’t respond to them
Historically, anarchy leads to dictatorship. Consider Russia prior to WWI. The Bolshevik Revolution dethroned the Russian monarchy and killed off as many of the ruling class as possible, much like the French Revolution of the late 1700’s. The problem with both those revolutions, of course, is that those who replaced the monarchs were just as corrupt and just as above the law, and the world saw the rise of Lenin, Stalin, Kruschev, Gorbachev, and now Putin. None of them could be called benevolent. Putin is deliberately and forcefully trying to reestablish the old USSR, and many will die because of his efforts.
When anarchy develops, military force is just about the only thing that can stop it. And if the military operates outside of the rule of law, then the military becomes part of the dictatorship. Which is why, by the way, the anti-gun folks want your weapons. Without them, you have no way to protect yourself against the misuse of the military.
The second amendment was not meant just to allow people to hunt, but to be able to protect themselves from the threat of dictatorship. When one segment of society wants to shut down the free speech of another, take away their weapons, control their health care, it is often done under the guise of “helping The People.” The truth is, when we lose these hard-won freedoms we will also lose our liberty in many other ways, as well. Capitalism will be replaced by government-controlled financial operations, and we will become a nation run by those who will enrich themselves at our expense. “We the People” will cease to have any say in much of anything, and poverty will become so widespread that we will become just another Third-World nation.
Well, see what can come from just one simple word?
Read your history, folks. What is happening in America is tragic, but it is nothing new. We CAN stop it, but only if we educate ourselves outside the “Hate America” philosophies that are being poured into our children and college students, along with “There is no God,” and all-sex-any-sex-all-the-time and the government should pay for your birth control. Don’t tell me what to do with my body, just pay for my birth control and/or abortions.
Good grief. We’ve lost our minds.
