Tyranny Requires Followers

“Among my people are the wicked who lie in wait like men who snare birds and like those who set traps to catch people. Like cages full of birds, their houses are full of deceit; they have become rich and powerful and have grown fat and sleek. Their evil deeds have no limit; they do not seek justice. They do not promote the case of the fatherless; they do not defend the just cause of the poor. Should I not punish them for this?” declares the Lord. “Should I not avenge myself on such a nation as this?”(Jeremiah 5:26-29) 

We like to examine ways and means of tyrants, from Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Kim Jong Il, and Ceausescu, but their intrigues, crimes, rise to power and evil rule was not accomplished in a vacuum, common people, often masses, acquiesced initially and sufficiently to establish their wicked rule. Irrespective of illegality and forceful violence used to overthrow existing governments, the response or lack there of the populous was essential to the evil regime’s rise. Edmund Burke may have been the first to say, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Others like John Stuart Mills built upon the concept saying, “Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, then that good men should look on and do nothing. He is not a good man who, without a protest, allows wrong to be committed in his name, and with the means which he helps to supply, because he will not trouble himself to use his mind on the subject.” A final application of this thought was, “No man, who is not inflamed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can flatter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavors are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united Cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” This is all true as we see from the tyrannical rise of evil empires in history. 

Today in America evil is on the rise in groups of wicked people united. They use their combined influence and organizations against justice, righteousness and truths which have stood the test of time and should remain as foundations of all free nations, standing against selfish, deluded, wicked objectives. The battle has been brought to the steps of government, which was seized, illegally or not, by secular humanists and Big Tech Media oligarch billionaires. Government and woke corporation’s are now joining with organizations of wickedness. Their tools are lies, subverting and suppressing the truth, in and through news, facts, election procedures, court cases, illegal violent riots, false criminal investigations, cancel culture, financial collusion, censorship, illegal executive orders, intimidation at local school boards, libraries, and police enforcement. 

Seventy-four million people or more voted against the evil rise of this wicked regime. A few speak out, many are silenced, most are afraid to exert their rights of free speech and/or religious expression, in light of the well organized Cabals, Racists, and Media Oppressors. The numbers of evil activists are overestimated, but there are significant numbers of those who chose to do nothing and are surrendering in their apathy, ignorance and refusal to take action against this present darkness. Consider this in the light of God’s Sovereign rule over all. Fearing Him with awe is the beginning of wisdom. Take your stand upon His word: “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
