We Chose Optimism Over Honesty

Without an honest look at what is real, there can never be a hope for the future. Never. Yes, there might be moments of accidental prosperity. From time-to-time, you might experience something above average, but you can never hold off reality.

In fact, one of the reasons why I continue to commit all of my life to Christ, is that the Bible is the clearest reflection of reality that we have. Yet, we prefer the momentary pleasures of fantasy, instead the gritty truth residing within those pages bound together and sent around the world.

We are facing the most horrific moment in a thousand years precisely because we chose optimism over honesty.

Filled with Foreboding

It should be no mystery to you that we are in a lot of trouble. Earth-shaking, civilization destroying, trouble. And, the news this week – and over the past few weeks – has emphasized this like we have rarely seen. Conventional oil production has been declining since 2005. Emerging market countries are experiencing financial collapse. We are entering a Grand Solar Minimum that might be worse than the one that launched the Dark Ages. The war against free speech has begun in earnest. Societies in the developed world teeter on the brink of open strife.

We are staring into the Abyss, and I just don’t like the view.

TRUTH – Our Biggest Challenge

We are beset with lies. They surround us. They attempt to invade everything that we do. They try to divert our attention. They trip us up when we try to make intelligent decisions. And, the lies are so much more fun than the TRUTH.

That’s why the truth is such a challenge. It’s painful. It’s ugly. It holds a mirror up and shows us that we aren’t as strong or as beautiful as we would like to be.

So, I understand why TRUTH is such a challenge. But, if you want to live long and prosper… If eternity is your destination… you’d better accept the challenge of accepting the TRUTH.

2017 Hits

Of all the years that I’ve been writing articles, I believe that 2017 is the most important. And, I’ve been writing since the mid ’90s. Only time will tell, whether I’m right (and write). And, 2018 might be even MORE momentous.

However, we’ll deal with 2018 later. Right now, we need to look back at this past year and examine what was important. But, I want to do that a bit differently than I normally do, at this time of year.

I want to look at the articles that YOU thought were important, and a few that I thought to be important.

The System is Dying II – When Growth Stops

In both the natural and geopolitical world, there seems to be one law that that is universal – at least on this planet. And that law is:

Systems grow until they die.

Look at ANY biological system at the macro level. That system grows and grows and grows, until it runs out of food, and then rapidly dies – to be replaced by a different biological system that does the same thing. And, scientists have wondered at this seemingly mindless, unchanging rule of nature.

Of course, it has its roots in the Fall of Man and the Garden of Eden, but you can’t expect scientists to read the Bible.
