But Time is finite.
Put butter on your bread while you can because there are guns and nutters aplenty and their numbers increase.
The world is short of Grace.
It is also short of Statesmen.
It is essential to defend against an enemy. But what if everyone is the enemy?
What if it becomes impossible to tell the good guys from the bad guys.
We live in an age of 'Rights'. Well, in the soft West it seems. What if might turns out to be the last 'Right?
History is written by the victors, it is said. Also, it is said, "And the meek shall inherit the Earth".
Or what is left of it.
China has the largest army in the world, by several orders of magnitude.
Russia. Remember them? They are still around, hunkered down for a while but building.
In the air too.
China has been quiet for a long while sorting itself out, getting ready to take it's place. It is every bit as powerful as any.
Bureaucratic Europe only seems to have lagged. They have not. NATO is huge.
The capabilities are far greater than butter.
There are 'smaller' nations with immense power. Not quite so immense as the Big ones. But when they sit on the powder keg with lighted matches.........
Putin: The Mafia Thug. Obama: the half-white ant. Hoo Say So; the Chinese Politburo man of the moment. Iranians. ISIS, Israeli, Tory, Labour, Democrat, Republican, Nationalist, National Socialist, International Socialist, Democratic Socialist. People's Democratic Socialist, Liberal........
It used to be that a nation under threat could talk of 'Win', and 'Victory'.
That was Yesterday.
A new dawn may be different.
Tomorrow, perhaps today, it is more a matter of being Personally Good vs being Bad. There may be no 'National' win.
For you, Personally, PAX DEI.
For the world?
