NapaFiresStatus quo for the California wine industry has been shown in recent days to be unsustainable. But, hopefully Route #29 and the heart of Napa Valley can be saved from the enveloping flames — with their wines going on to be part of ennobled rather than debased living.

WoodsideMost scientists and theologians would agree that the dominant forces in the cosmos are moving to unfold and gather-up creation (“That all may be one”). Perhaps it can be said that Columbus was an instrument of Providence in the progress of humankind. As things expand they also come together. In the realm of human affairs progress has led to civilizations being born. For civilization to succeed (rather than devolving into nothingness) people need to participate in the common good and truth itself, which includes being grateful for one’s existence.

Black leaders and activists continue to terrorize American society by seeking to advance black people (through fear and intimidation) — by being bad rather than by being good, by taking rather than by giving. A recent example of this can be seen in efforts by activists, politicians, and judges to get unqualified persons (of color) into the FDNY.

The beautiful spirit that one associates with American black people is being gutted by materialist leaders seeking power and progress at the expense of life.

RAW17The American way of activism — featuring individuals in despair, driven by a peculiar admixture of aims, seeking justice (vengeance) and identity in their struggle for rights, while at the same time rebelling against truth and life itself — was on full display in the fulminations of opposing, yet similar, rebel groups in Charlottesville.
