Society's Circle

I have often heard the phrase "history repeats itself" from people who believe in such a theory. I however, can only scoff at such an oversight of the truth that surrounds us.

History like everything else does not repeat itself but rather comes full circle. I use this particular lead in for the presentation of my personal outlook, opinion, and view on the initial concept of a righteous and functional society gone array.

Our nation's integrity founded upon ideas of perfection and presented in documents conceived by our fore fathers "politicians" was intricately placed with the popular perception, that when treated with respect for humanity and fulfilled by those who desire progression, could withstand the immoral separation and decline of a people whose hopes and dreams were so deeply shared.

These fore fathers, "politicians" provided a foundation of brilliance and a perception of enduring freedom to come and behold. The world was transformed by a nation of opportunity that came of those whom of which desired to create something out of nothing at all.

Today we see not the repetitious events some had forecast, determined, or predicted but rather the circle become whole. This is where the beginning becomes the end and the end becomes the beginning. It is understandable in such explanation why many would describe this as a pattern of repetition all be it wrong in perception.

What we have is a world entangled in politics and political events. What was once divided and kept separate has become engrossed in outlooks and ideas of an evolved, and ever complicated world made up of many different societies. The problem with the ideas and outlooks circulating are that they come from an under-educated and ill-informed group of individuals that care little about maintaining the principles for which we stand and who have no aptitude for determining or hypothesising what will be best for the world of tomorrow.

Politics have become religion and religion has become politics. We as a public diverse in makeup and derived of many nations are now embedded in not only the current events of the world but the politics surrounding them. We are cast into the political arena even as mere citizens when the news programs broadcast on television, Internet websites, and print are contrived of nothing more than the debate of one party's explanation for the world's events.

Politics have easily shown growth yet separation from religion. This separation and the demise of religion or inclusion of politics is what has and will continue to divide this nation. Times of being able to agree to disagree have become non-existent as the political arena now shows us that one side must prevail and then be dominant providing little hope for balance.

We misconceive the notion of our duty to challenge our government's decisions as being a time to trample upon a falter presented by any means even of natural occurrence. We regard one another as neighbor only verbally as we analyze the differences of outlook between us internally and hold contempt for those whose opinions vary.

Politics cannot replace or become religion especially with the limited number of parties in which to divide the masses. Too many liberals have the stage to invoke their opinions and perception on the world and more importantly nation. Too many ears are listening to half the message, a biased statement/point of view, or even an ill-informed provider of news. This gossip should not be held as doctrine.

So what once was a nation provided documents for success by politicians "fore fathers", has become a nation in demise by the very basis from which it was conceived! Much irony exists in light of our circumstances but make no mistake history is being written with fresh ink.

Many believe we will perish by way of war which will be brought forth from the clash of political views. The divulging of politics and our individual and divided stance will open the door for defeat as a nation and then as a world. This a world of which religion has been driven from and one of which two utmost political agendas will collide!

The end provided by way of religion the journey led by way of politics!

Profoundly written!

However, I would disagree with your stance that puts so much power into the hands of man, by way or politics or religion, and removes it from the Hands of God, Who ultimately has set all things in motion and upholds all things by the power of His Word and Will.

Although politics and religion (the man-made kind) are definitely worldly vehicles by which mankind pushes his propaganda and seizes control of earthly rule and the minds of the masses, man is nothing more than the dust he was created from. Therefore using these methods to change the world are efforts in futility.

The Scripture declares that it is God that declares the end of the beginning, and it is He Who "sets up one (leader) and brings down another". Therefore, it is my solemn conviction that ultimately man has little control over the time-clock that the world is on. Yes, all things will come to an end, and I believe God has set that appointment.

Strangely enough, God even uses the evil-doers in this world to bring about his will. There are numerous examples of this in Scripture. In fact, the Bible tells us that He created evil. So in fact, there is nothing in existence that God did not create, and He and He alone is the author and finisher of all things.

I get amused at man's futile efforts to bring about change with such fleeting methods as politics, education, or philosophy. Each of these tools came from man himself and should not be looked to as the answers to his deep and serious dilemmas. What man needs to look to is His creator, the One that holds the answers to any question perplexing his heart. Man is a spiritual being, created in the Image of God, and therefore needs a spiritual answer, not a carnal one.
