Tiger in the Land

by Robert LeFevre


There is an apparent wide and shocking misconception in our land. It is this. That patriotism consists in loving our government and in willingly and joyously doing what the president and his administration want us to do. It is this misconception, so cunningly advanced by unscrupulous men in power, which has paved the way for despotic advances in all the years of man.

Patriotism cannot be a love of government. Patriotism rises above the government as a mountain towers above a blade of grass. When we think of our country and a feeling of love and devotion wells up within us, it should spring from the reality of what our country is and means, and not from the government, which is the least of all our blessings.

In fact, the only virtue of our government, which was true in the days of its founding, was that it was a severely limited government of very little power. We could love it then, for it was harmless. A tiger in a cage can induce a feeling of love. A tiger, hiding in a tall grass of hidden taxes, and not so hidden force, is a shocking and a terrifying thing.

It is time we awoke to realize that the beast our forefathers caged has burst from its confinement. It is on the prowl in our midst. We do not know where it will strike next. But, until it is caged again, it cannot be an object of our love or devotion. It cannot stir us to patriotism.

But since patriotism is bigger than this beast, what is it?

Is it a love of the geography which makes up the physical confines of these United States? Yes, it is that. But it is more than that. It is the ocean's strand, the endless plains burnished in waving wheat, the virgin snowy caps on slumbering and autumn forests, the rivers, the lakes of multi-blues, and much, much more.

Is it the people of this land who inspire us to love it? Yes, it is that. But it is more than that. It is the grandeur and the simplicity of the human soul which strives. It is the eagerness of youth, endowed with the desire and the power to prove. It is the transparent pride of lineage, and self-respect of accomplishment, the hope of better things. It is human strength and frailty in mosaic. It is good, it is bad, it is life and motion. It is a constant source of surprise and wonder. But it is much, much more.

Is it the genius of America which inspires us to love it? Yes, it is that. But it is much more than that. It is the scientist laboring in research. It is the capitalist risking fortune, reputation and a way of life on the chance he might win. It is the architect raising temples in his mind. It is the builder filling in the dreams. It is the skill, the brawn, the sweat, the tears of progress. It is this and much, much more.

For the secret of our love of country is in the spirit. It is the spirit of human liberty. It is not our land that moves us. It is that we are free in the land. It is not our people that move us. It is that the people are free. It is not our genius and accomplishment, but the fact that we are free to invent, discover and do which is the basis of our patriotic fervor.

Here is the lesson the men in power must learn. It is they, not us, who need a lesson in love of country. We do not need to be taught devotion to what is ours. They must stop equating themselves with America. The government is not America. The government is an instrumentality that serves America. It is best when it is smallest. Because as it shrinks in size and power, America, that which we love, grows bigger and more powerful, more beautiful, richer, more generous, more free.

It is time for the tiger to slink back into the cage.

The U.S. government is NOT "America"!!!

Damn Straight - no more than the CIA is an "American" Intelligence agency.

"..........Britain has rarely proclaimed moral absolutes or rested her faith in the ultimate efficacy of technology, despite her achievements in this field. Philosophically, she remains Hobbesian: She expects the worst and is rarely disappointed. In moral matters Britain has traditionally practiced a convenient form of ethical egoism, believing that what was good for Britain was best for the rest. This requires a certain historical self-confidence, not to say nerve, to carry it off. But she has always practiced it with an innate moderation and civilized humaneness such that her presumption was frequently justified. In the Nineteenth Century, British policy was a?perhaps the?principal factor in a European system that kept the peace for 99 years without a major war.........." - Henry Kissinger speaking at the Royal Institute of International Affairs.

We, as Americans, are SUPPOSED to be suspicious of our government.

In one of the only really clever and honest observations that the closet Tory Fascisti Churchill ever let slip out was that:

"Americans can always be counted upon to do the right thing, after they have exhausted every other possibility!


I believe we are now rapidly once again coming to one of such forks in the road which leads back to reason.

    To expound on that a bit the U.S. govt is not the U.S. govt really is it?

    The secret govt 'security' apparatus might as well be an alien on another planet its so above the law.  And then above them are the elites with their myriad of offers you cant refuse Tongue

 I dont want to stray  OT but this makes me think of my silly idea i had the other night about making usury illegal.   I meant it in the, apparently ,obsolete definition of all forms of interest on money.  There are some legal controls on it and perhaps it is necessary in order to make the wheels of business turn but i was trying to imagine what it would be like if there was a standard money that was indefinitely limited and all forms of interest were outlawed.  I have some thoughts on it but dont want to stray too far here but the reason im connecting it is the power of the elites would be severely crippled especially over a generation or two. 
'
HELL NO the govt isnt AMERICA! And these elite internationalists arent either. However they want us to sing 'We are the frakin World' and hold hands and come together in the new aeon of social engineers. Tongue Im scared. End rant.
