In the Year 2021: Lawlessness vs Principle

In the year 2021, you should expect lawlessness versus principle as a front-and-center societal polarization to its most extreme. Because the culture war is over principle. But let’s start getting real about what’s been happening before our very eyes over the last, not just four years, but almost a decade now. Lawlessness, arbitrary behaviors, purposeful hostility, and a biting hate so powerful you can feel it seep through your computer screen. I mean, the loathing is so thick at times by the far left, that the argument shows up in our own living rooms! So what are we talking about here? We get into principles.

No, I am not talking about President Trump’s Nobel Peace Prized-sized accomplishments. No. We’re not talking about Congress and their ability to never agree in unity on what’s best for America. No, we are not discussing Pelosi’s magical appearance being reelected as House Speaker again. And No. We are not talking about our Cold American Civil War. What I am talking about is the general acceptance of any and all criminal behavior by anyone leaning too far to the extreme—by government and citizenry alike.

How about the fact that isolated incidents of property destruction, violence, and death, happen and continue to happen in front of all of us daily. As citizens we should own our physical protection by paying our taxes to bring down crime, right? These criminals are then supposed to be prosecuted by the District Attorney that we citizens vote in, right? Well in a perfect world, yes.

Criminal conviction numbers are dropping nationally. What? A judge and jury can’t wear a mask in the courtroom like everyone else? Why in the world is law and order being handled so arbitrarily by those sworn to protect The People at the federal and state level? Especially if the crime has been attached to anyone related to the radical cause of anti-American millennial revolution.

Why is this still happening without the full weight of American intelligence, military, and law enforcement cooperation? We should see massive executions of SWAT raids on these individuals and groups by the our men and women in blue on a daily. But how often is this actually happening? I haven’t seen it. It should be all over the news. It’s arbitrary and flat out lazy handling. Period. End of story.

Look at Aspen, Colorado under a state of emergency that is related to domestic terrorism. The FBI has failed us squarely. So we shouldn’t expect much from them. I mean, let us count the ways: Nashville is just a start. But we shouldn’t start blaming our government overseers. As American’s we all have the Constitutional rights that allow for us citizenry to protect ourselves and persevere in the face of evil. Let’s face it – this is all evil.

So why aren’t we standing up? Why aren’t The People standing up and doing something about the lawlessness? When there is a broken justice system in play that is saturated in lawless corruption (think the Judicial benches in deep swampy blue states), then we need to go to the US Constitution. Our fundamental rights as American citizens rest in these basic concrete and indivisible rights. Indivisible means that this document cannot be dissolved if there is a citizenry ready to defend her principles.


Principles are the unspoken fundamental codes of moral and ethical living that make life solid for humanity. Without those, it’s chaos and anarchy. So let’s break down the very real American principles laid out in the US Constitution because, as I have written before, the Bible and Civil Liberty are inseparable and there is no arguing this fact. This information got my business account banned from Facebook.

The Bible and Civil Liberty are inseparable, and there is no arguing this fact. Even Newsweek, on December 26, 1982acknowledged after a major analysis of the Bible’s influence in America, that, “Now historians are discovering that the Bible, perhaps even more than the Constitution is our Founding document.”

“Dr. Donald Lutz, a professor of political science from the University of Houston, conducted an exhaustive ten-year research of about 15,000 political documents of the Founders’ era (1760-1805), and recorded every quote or reference to another written source. This list of the 3,154 citations of the Founders was analyzed and published in Volume #78 of the American Political Science Review in 1983. The results would give quite an accurate measure of the influence of various sources of thought on the Constitution.”

“The results were surprisingly contradictory to modern scholarship. By far, the most often quoted source of their political ideas was the Bible. This would account for over one-third (34%) of all their citations. Another 50% of all references can be attributed to authors who themselves derived their ideas from the Bible. Therefore, it can be said the 84% of the ideas in our Constitution are based directly or indirectly on the Bible.” Since we now all know for sure, where our nation’s principles originate from, what now?


Participate in discussion and politics. Speak up to your peers and to those who challenge your moral and ethical opinions. How can we take any leadership seriously when even they keep getting tossed aside moment by moment? It’s about making those solid decisions that are firm and immovable. It’s about representing not just yourself as an individual, but as an American who represents our whole society. It’s about taking pride in your society whose great-great-great-grandparents helped to build this great nation over centuries.

Are you all ready to give your freedom up just to stay silent for a false sense of security and to appease the critics? When you are going to bed tonight, just reflect on the words and meaning behind “American Principles.” Our nation was not founded and succeeded on because of hand-outs and blame-shifting. It was founded and succeeded on the basic principles of truth. The Founders knew there would come a day that we—the American populace—would have to deal with tyranny in 2021, and luckily, they showed their true principles when writing our solid and completely firm Constitution.

Do you want to make a good start as a regular citizen? Unsure of where to start? I recommend you start by signing the petition here at the ACLJ by Defending the Constitution and the Integrity of the Elections. You can also follow me step-by-step at Complex America and also on Facebook.
