A Good Thing?
by J. Vincent Martin
It’s a good thing we defeated the Nazis and the Communists, back in the last century. Can you image what it would be like today if they had won.
We’d be living under a government that controlled every single aspect and facet of our daily lives.
No doubt there would be satellites revolving around our planet reporting exactly where everyone is and what they are doing.
They’d probably be cameras everywhere, watching us, to make sure we were following the rules and thinking the right way.
Our schools would be forced to indoctrinate our children with the latest party whim. God would be deleted from our vocabulary, and sooner or later houses of worship would become party community centers.
Then again, TV and the news media would be nothing more than propaganda machines, brain washing us every second of the day.
Alas, by now they would have also conquered the rest of the world and America would just be a piece of geography on a map.
Yes, there wouldn’t be anything left worth dying for anymore. Then again, there wouldn’t be anything left worth living for either. So I guess it’s a good thing we won and are still one nation under God, and The Land of The Free.
We did win, right???
