Are you a part of the problem or a part of the solution? It is a rough estimate that only 3% of the American colonists were actively fighting in the field against the British forces. “3%” defeated the tyranny of slavery. “3%” defeated tyranny in WWII.
What might your life be like today if selfishness and cowardice prevailed?
Today we face a tyranny that humankind has never faced before. The Tyranny of ease. How is EASE cruel or oppressive you ask?
Ease made us weak and selfish; at home, in business, in our neighborhoods, with our children and in our politics. Our lack of discipline and courage created a weak society that starves for hope, a media that will sell its country for a dollar, and politicians that dream of controlling our lives.
What will happen to America if 3% of us don’t start demonstrating courage and selflessness today? Will tyranny overtake us? Or will we redefine success and demonstrate it with selfless actions at work and at home?
Weak people attract tyrants, strong people repel them.
