For those of my readers who reside in the USA, throughout this Memorial Day holiday...
Let’s give thanks to those (in uniform or not) who clearly “get” that America was founded upon the principle of secured liberty — independence, in a new land, away from an oppressive monarchy, where ambitious, sovereign-minded, hearty souls could (presumably) live their lives unobstructed by big government and overburdening regulation… and driven by free enterprise.
While that foundation seems further and further distant from its origin [reminder, from last year here]...
It's readers, like yourself, who have the collective ability to impact younger minds who may not be 'in touch with' the need to commit to the original ideal of independence.
Again, in a free-flung world where nation-state “leaders” — including the office of the POTUS — comingle amongst themselves under the tutelage of Klaus and team…
It could be harder and harder to “sell” the concept of American nationalism (or Exceptionalism).
You don't have to be a fellow veteran, know somebody who served, or know of someone who died in war… to “get” that freedom isn't free.
Yes, let's honor the legacy of our heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Moreover, let's also support those still living who would, without hesitancy, do the same.
In other words…
As the great essayist, Richard Grenier synopsized a position George Orwell held:
“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night, only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”
That truth is clearly elaborated through a voiced out speech, by Jocko Willink, titled Remember Me.

As the child of a Korean combat vet, and grandson of a D-Day vet I thank you very much for your post today. I also salute all of our veterans dead and alive and honor their legacy.
With that said, I think many don't realize we are at war now but mostly without overt violence for the hearts and minds of our young & not so young in the West.
It would be wise to a SunTzu said to know your enemy. There are great lessons we can gain if study & replicate the communication and social psych strategies of "the Woke" strategist, propagandists & minions.
They have effectively labored it seems for many years, somewhat unobstructed, to slowly, step by step, sink their tentacles into the hearts & minds of many good people I know in the USA and beyond. The average person in my experience in 30+ countries, is more often than not, good & basically honest. Many honest people don't get that very smart, very evil people exist who use any layers of cleverly constructed deceit.
I am sure you Barry and most hear have long known, the Woke elite will sell & condition minds and algorithms to promote the apparent virtue of their cooked-up causes to distract, divide, & conquer, while they the Woke elite gain more power & influence. But many average people who still get allow hours of "corporate news/ psy op info into their minds, do not, nor can they conceive of it.
Ex: "hurry, be a "good citizen", just take this new shot (medical experimental medical treatment & lucrative corporate biz) and post on social media to "stop the spread"(promoting corporate power and greed) or else you are a selfish anti-social, xenophobic SOB / grandma killer"
Time to take my son to soccer & hit the gym!
