For those arrogant Cultural Marxists, and Ignorant Christian Neo-Con Fundamentalists who claim that Donald Trump is arrogant and haughty, and narcissistic, etc., etc., etc. It is
Humility and the Public Square
In America the people are the "sovereigns" who are "ordained by God with inalienable rights" who imbue ruling authorities with LIMITED power, who "govern" the ruling authorities by oversight, repeal, and expulsion from office. We THE People are as noble as any king when defending the "Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness" of the realm.
This defense requires activity in the public square and STANDING for the good. To accept this IS responding in humility to the gift God has given us. I, for one, would be much happier retired to a quiet life of prayer, composing music, writing for fun whimsical things, wood working, drawing and oil painting, than engaged in this public debate, and spending these thousands of hours TEACHING. BUT in obedience to the greater good, I accept the vocation of what seems a most worldly thing, and in humility act with Holy Boldness, and use the special gifts granted me by God as an American citizen, to engage in the very real war with blinding evil that is destroying our Nation and her People.
A friend questioned if my bold and to him, arrogant argumentation could at all, be pleasing to God, proper and right. It was his opinion I had turned "vulgarian" and had lost not just my "humility," as it is pictured in Philippians Chapter Two, which he quoted me, but my faith as well. For him humility means simply servitude to authority, and I think never daring to ever be "uppity" enough to question those in authority. Philippians is pretty clear, it states things that would seem obvious that I violate daily, and Trump violates daily. Certainly you could hang the words around our neck as a slave collar that say, "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves." Wow, that would be an admonishment to silence if Holy Writ ended there. But there is an exception for the American Sovereign, in the American Public Square. How could this be?
"I hate everything he said, in fact I find what he said repugnant, but I will defend to my death his right to say it."
In America when one acts for the good, it is acting for the good of ALL. When one exercises ones rights, or honors someone else's rights, one is preserving the rights of ALL. i.e. "Not looking to my own things only, but also on the things of others." - etc.
The fact is that this grasp of "looking out for the things of others" SHOULD apply to the citizens in every nation upon the earth. It should be a common thread in the nature of the human being, no matter the "form of government" their particular nation holds, for the practical purpose of securing just rule for all. Our country is the only country where this concept was codified in our founding. "All men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, among which are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness . . " And immediately that landmark Declaration outlines what must be done where these basic rights are abridged by any form of tyranny.
This understanding is lost in many societies on earth and to more than a degree, lost here, also, as free speech has been attacked as "radical" and "dangerous" where the mantra has become "try not to be noticed while you do what is necessary for family, for survival." I'm not exaggerating, people have grown fearful of speaking out, knowing there is an oppressive system that seeks to shut them down and if it can't shut them up, put them down, in the sense a dog is put down. I wish I were exaggerating, but immediately Michael Hastings and Andrew Brietbart spring to mind. Survival against the injustices of tyranny is NOT what the struggle in America should be, though it has become that. What must be understood, that to struggle against 'unjust rule' IS acting in humility, in the most self-sacrificing aspects of humility.
Our Founding Fathers were not arrogant men, though they spoke truth to power, and backed up that truth with the necessary FORCE. No, rather they were men of great humility, realizing that everything they owned, their Lives, their Honor, their Property, were not to be "arrogated" to themselves, but humbly used, humbly spent, humbly given away if needed for the Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness of ALL. Donald Trump is the very personification of this true Humility. For all those who out of jealousy of his wealth claim that he is selfish, arrogant etc., etc., look what he is doing with his wealth, jeopardizing his LIFE, sacrificing now Tens of Millions of Dollars out right, taking a financial hit where he is vulnerable, allowing his name to be dragged through the FILTH of the modern Psy-Opts Media.
In deep humility Donald Trump has accepted the mantle of Holy Boldness, the Good Lord has called him to accept. I do not know what the outcome of this election will be, but I know for certain that Trump's humble willingness to face his own mortality, and to speak truth to power, has made changes in our society that cannot be "un-changed." It has awakened people who are not likely to easily be lulled into hypnotic somnambulism, again. Whether the revolution happens by voting, or by blood in the streets there is little doubt now the revolution is coming.
Tell me, which one displays a humble spirit? Hint, it is not the young Cruz.
