WHEN DOES AN ELECTION BECOME LOW INTENSITY WARFARE?

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Most people regard 2020 as a strange year, and it is a bit unusual. Surely we are squabbling more than usual. Why? We have an election coming up on November 3, 2020. Nevertheless, although 2020 may seem like an exceptionally bad year, human conflict is not as unusual as we would like to believe. If wars were not so devastating and exhausting, we would probably fight more than we do. Consider this Wikipedia article, List of the lengths of United States participation in wars (en.wikipedia.org). There are some long wars, but the long wars are relatively minor conflicts. Full scale, unrestricted conflicts, because they wreak so much havoc cannot long be sustained. One side or the other has to give up.

Since we are risk adverse we usually try to avoid unrestricted conflicts like the American Civil War and World War II. In fact, this is why we choose our leaders…

  1. God post Tom, as usually. I really like how you broke down the different types of warfare going on. Even though they don’t involve traditional weapons (aside from the violent “protests”), they are all effective ways to bring about revolution. In Marshall Mcluhan’s famous words, the medium really is the message.

  2. Low intensity?! Low, Tom?? I am laughing here, but I think this whole situation might be rather intense and the next election pretty much a matter of life and death. Actually IMO, the next election is really all about whether or not elections stand in this country, and whether or not we decide to honor our democratic process and system. That’s what all this has been, a massive temper tantrum over Trump being elected and now, potentially re-elected. The choice is simple, either this country as a whole agrees to honor the will of the people who have voted and will vote again, or we continue to rebel as if elections should be conducted by mob rule and settled in the court of public opinion.

    I think there is also spiritual stuff going on here, and some nefarious foreign players trying to stir the pot, but basically that is the choice before us as Americans.

      I regard the situation as seriously as you, but perhaps not quite for the same reasons. When Hitler took over Germany, he actually did not kill many people until he had a firm grasp on power. Hitler got into power largely through intimidation and by perverting the legitimate election process. Then Hitler began to purge those he deemed undesirables.

      This is not the FDR generation of Democrats. These Liberal Democrats lack moral restraints. If they get the power they want, they will start purging their enemies. Then a thoroughly bloody war could ensue. If a civil war starts, then foreign nations are almost certain to add to the chaos. By the end I don’t expect much to be left. Our great metropolitan areas will just be rubble.

  3. Tom,
    Sadly, so many children in the USA have grown up after being taught in government run public schools instead of religious private schools.

    Frankly,, they have no perception or understanding of the merits of being taught religious morality.\

    We are witnessing the effects of lack of school choice every day in the news.

    If parents who do know or want their children to be taught religious morality, if they do not speak up now, I believe it will soon be too late for a religious resurgence in the USA..

    However, history has recorded numerous instances of religious resurgence in past generations. Usually after the effects of children growing up and experiencing what the consequences have been for societies that rejected religious morality which leads to order in societies who believed they know better than their Creator.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.

      Will we have a revival? Don’t know. A revival essentially involves the same thing as being born again (John 3). We have repent of our sins. Getting people to the point where they will repent is something the Holy Spirit does. All we can do is share the Gospel and pray.
