As you explain it, evil and darkness may not exist, but there is certainly a lot of pressure "out there" trying to ensure that light should be extinguished, too.

I like the words of Alberto Villoldo that "Nothing that has to hide in the shadows has any real power of its own." In other words, the shadows/darkness/evil are powered through the energy/attention/belief that people give them. I think we should not underestimate the extent of the belief in darkness. Also, the discussion of dark things in a way "feeds" the darkness - but talking about it hopefully makes people who will listen aware. What about those who hide their heads in the sand and don't want to hear about it? Your idea?

The energy that feeds evil is fear and anger and selfishness, which again indicate a lack of God's love in one's heart. This is why evil tries to generate fear, to close your heart. I visualize it like this: Love is not a feeling. Love is a river or a wave flowing from God through me to the world. Just as a light bulb doesn't have light of its own, but rather it shines when it is powered from another source (God). I also visualize it as a pipe. If I close the pipe on either end, the flow of God's love shuts down. So this means that you have to accept God's love and feel worthy of God's love, and then you have to let it shine. You have to give love however the love inspires you. Our job is to keep the pipe open and let God's love flow through us, and as we do this, God will increase the size of our pipe so more love can flow through.

Yes, on the upcoming CBDCs - how do you suggest we resist, other that by not getting a chip? If dollars are either confiscated or no longer available, the option of saving them and buying land will no longer be available. You are optimistic, and I think that is predicated on people waking up. How do you think individuals can best avoid a chip or being "punished"?

We have to education and not give in. Do this on a local basis. Form groups. Meetings. Start a local newspaper or substack newsletter. Talk to your local senators and governor. This can be stopped at the State level.

I agree with you, Glenn. I am not German, but was taught to do well whatever I undertake. (That is sometimes a problem, as I tend to be perfectionist). However, critical thinking is immensely important, and it is under attack - both in the schools (I tutor, I can see this happening) and at home by keeping parents so busy with work that they are willing to use "electronic babysitters" and by the addictive distractions such as videogames. We need more connection and community - more people we love with whom to disagree to stimulate independent thinking and more people from whom to learn and teach and more cooperative play outdoors, away from the videogames.

When my mother was growing up, she lived in a (suburban, though it was not called that) neighborhood where everyone knew and interacted with each other. The children were allowed to roam fairly freely, with the prime caveat being to obey the adults in the neighborhood. Sure, there are disadvantages to that, too, but it is good for people to look out for each other. How did we get away from that?

I agree regarding critical thinking. COVID was a massive attack on critical thinking and the scientific process. We have to teach children the true scientific process and critical thinking skills. I think social media has killed critical thinking skills.
