I may be wrong about the type of commentary and contributors on this blog and if I am, then - be sure to educate me.
I used to comment on a certain [other] blog, there were many interesting contributions and the thread was often electric with various opinion and comments. Trouble is, they often went to war with each other - that is the trouble with disparate and free thinking individuals, in that, collective harmony and agreement can be a rare commodity.
Standing up and speaking unpopular truths is also a difficult thing, we all crave a quiet life, do we not?
Sometimes, just sometimes, good folk and right minded men and women have to say; "enough is enough!"
I genuinely fear for the future, I also know, this pillaging by the elites, this criminality and law breaking by people, who should [and do] know better cannot go on [neither can the example that they set - otherwise we will all descend into the pit - can we say in all honesty that we are not already there?].
What I do not know, is how we can bring this people revolution to the people.
I think Dr. North speaks eminent and evident sense and that - in our own small way, we must do our duty.
I am tainted, if you like, by my experience in researching for the Battle of Britain book. We are used to the concept of the great war leader Churchill but, in fact, much of that is a post-war myth. During the crucial early days of the London Blitz, when the infrastructure in the East End was on the point of collapse, and there was a mood of rebellion in the air as the passive defence system collapsed, Churchill went AWOL. The people sought their own salvation ... the leadership came from the people themselves ... priests, some very notable women, Salvation Army, a junior Council clerk on one occasion.
Churchill went around doing carefully staged theatricals, to pre-vetted crowds, while back in the Cabinet he was set to call out the troops on people seeking shelter, whence a very large part of the population openly defied the government, forcing a change of policy in one of the most humiliating climbdowns of the war. Only a controlled press and censorship prevented it being fully recognised for what it was.
It does seem to me, therefore, that leadership in this coming crisis will come from the bottom - from the people ... the dynamic is more like a relay race, where the baton of leadership is passed from person to person, constantly changing.
