Perilous times? It sure seems that way! Just yesterday, a major hurricane invaded a part of the state of Louisiana where family members live and I pray they got through it safely. Just a week or so ago, a war that the US never should have gotten involved with in the first place, ended in a strange and somewhat infamous fashion as have so many other wars in this country have ended since the times of Alexander the Great! So-called “pandemics” which seem to have been created for nefarious purposes as if we’re living in a sci-fi or a dystopian thriller scenario. Child, adult, human, sex, whatever trafficking under the guise of ‘immigration,’ and not just in the US, either, but worldwide mostly for profit or other evil purposes. Earthquakes, typhoons, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, fires across northern California and Russia…as desert-mountain far west Texas hasn’t seen this much rain and flooding since 2004! Okay, okay, 2017…. Corrupt governments that only a criminal psychopath could love. And more….and will everyone soon be required to get ‘your papers, please’ just to travel to see loved ones or work or go to school or whatever?
And speaking of ‘your papers, please’….
The second novel of The Prodigal Band Trilogy, The Prophesied Band, goes into this ‘papers please’ notion. This novel, as stated in a previous post on ‘how’ the trilogy was written and why, was completed around the time that many thought was indeed perilous, that time of government actions against so-called ‘right-wing militias’ and other ‘rebellious’ groups such as the Branch Davidians. This mid- and late-90s period was when various alternative media organs warned against globalism and their so-called ‘new world order’ (mentioned by former president George HW Bush in one of his speeches) run mostly by ‘one-world-government’ organs like the United Nations. Perilous? Some Christian groups even believed that the ‘end times’ were coming quickly, and, further, various evangelical types began harping on ‘the rapture,’ including the authors of a fictional novel series called ‘Left Behind.’
That was then, but this is now, with a new paradigm called ‘the Great Reset.’ Do I even need to regurgitate the saying about owning nothing and being happy? (And is this saying copyrighted? Bwahahahahahahaha!). So that whether it is ‘pandemics’ or screwed-up economics or political skullduggery or wars and rumors of wars or crazy weather or earth-shattering events, these do seem like perilous times. ‘Papers, please’ or not.
