How Do You Cook A Frog

FROG

How do you cook a frog?

I'm not a frog, and I would not like to be cooked - nor would any self-respecting frog want to be cooked either.

So assuming that Mr. Frog is suddenly dropped in a kettle of hot water, he would promptly jump out, because he doesn't want to be cooked. Besides, the water is hot.

But if Mr. Frog is gently immersed in a kettle of cool comfortable water, it is so enjoyable, and so pleasurable, that he doesn't even notice the very slow flame that is heating his water. He is enjoying the water and pleasures in it until oblivion overtakes him.

I do not want to be in a position of such comfort that I do not notice the terror, the evil, the darkness that slowly overtakes me, engulfs me, and destroys me.

How do cook a frog? The same way you kill a man's spirit -- little by little by little -- the same way you take his freedoms, take his livelihood, take his will to be a man -- it is done a little at a time, just like you cook the frog.

When it comes to personal freedoms, those in power are terribly concerned about their own freedoms, but what about your freedoms? . . . mine?

The story has often been told that these limits on our freedom is for our own best interest. Is this because we don't know what we are interested in?

. . . what our concerns are?

. . . what our ideas and ideals are?

. . . and our fears?

Who knows our needs better than we do ourselves?

Those in seats of power will tell you that they know best because they are in the position of authority over you. The overlord and his minions place little credence on the needs of their subjects.

Observe the works of government . . . any government. There is good in government, but the cost in money and freedom is a poor trade off. Government is basically a mindless beast that largely exploits its citizens as well as it exploits other nations. The SAD point is that governments are a necessity in order to protect its citizens from those who are too irresponsible to be self-controlled. Also there is the need for protection from other exploitative governments.

Our existence is the water. Government is the flame that keeps us comfortable and safe or cooks us through progressive regulations.

The ideal would be for GOD to be our government. As before, when man becomes entrenched in a place of authority, the goodness of GOD (or a constitution) gets moved out and once again the frog gets cooked.

As for those who speak for GOD . . .
