Due to the behavior and actions of many, I can tell people have not seen this TV series. This is the most well done documentary of the entire Second World War. It covers everything. From how the culture was in all the countries to the state of the military at the beginning of the war all the way to its conclusion in 1945.
This is a must watch for all to see, but especially middle school and higher age children. Due to graphic details, I would not recommend of anyone younger then fourteen, and it is definitely something they must see. It shows up regularly on the American Heroes Channel, but you can order in a DVD.
Throughout history, several things repeat themselves. One of the foremost is those that delude themselves into thinking that they are better than God is. This has even happened to popes by the way but usually by those with the most power at the particular time. Usually this delusion results in wars, but it always leads to death of innocents. In the crusades, which were ordered by men with a misconception of the Bible due to the fact the only the elite has access to it, it led to the death of Jews and Arabs alike. In the Soviet Union it was the removal of the Bible from the culture by humans who felt they knew better then God which led to millions dying including Christians, Jews and those that opposed the totalitarian elitist government. It was the removal of God for an elitist race mentality that led to approximately thirteen million, Jews, Christians, homosexuals, gypsies and others at the hands of a lunatic as well as millions of others that fought to overthrow him in World War II.
The phrase if you do not study history you are destine to repeat has never been truer than it does today. The ruling class kept the knowledge to themselves during the Crusades. Perverting the Bible to justify the killing of Jews and to invade the Middle East under the pretense that Jerusalem needed to be saved from the “heathens” when has you can tell in hindsight that it was purely for greed. It is that very mentality that those now with the power within the United States feel they are justified in their actions to destroy this country. Well this is wrong. One of the main factors that caused an end to the Crusades was that more and more people gained access to the Bible and learned of the true teachings within it. It is something those with power during the Middle Ages tried to stop, but failed. They failed because God is more powerful than humans are. It was through free-will that people learned the true and acted upon it.
It is now time for humans to act upon the teaching of the Bible and to stop those that are removing God and history from our schools. It is time to remove career politicians. It is time to change laws that will allow those that are corrupt within the government to be at the least fired and the most jailed. It is time for the common people to rise up and say we are not going to take it anymore. It is something that those in power have deluded themselves into thinking they are doing for the good of all, but in reality, they are doing it for themselves.
The last time this happened, it caused the Soviet Union to implode upon itself and it was the common people that stood up and said they are not going to take it anymore. They were in a worse place then we are today within the USA, but it is something we can change now by acting upon our given rights to vote. It is also important that we keep in contact with those in the government that represent us. How can they do business for us if they do not know what it is we desire? If you allow them to assume that allows the old maxim of “making an ass out of you (U) and me” come into play.
If those in national office will not make term limits for themselves, it is up to us to make them have them. How do we do this? Either we vote them out or we contact those in the state governments and petition them to make term limits for those that the state sent to Washington D.C. This is what is our rights are as a citizen of the United States and the respective state you live in. It is also our right to recall a politician that does not embody our views that we wish to have seen in Washington D.C.
Several senators did not come up for re-election. We have the right to petition for their recall if they are not doing what we sent them to D.C. to do. We need to make both parties realize that the days of the career politician is over and return this nation back to its original design.
I highly recommend the book “The Liberty Amendments” by Mark R. Levin
