OpEd: EVIL is Second Nature in Politics

theodore  M I R A L D I.

SECOND NATURE
noun.

A characteristic or habit in someone that appears to be instinctive because that person has behaved in a particular way so often. 

We are faced with the ultimate dilemma of Good versus Evil in our culture and society. A country that progressives in power are focusing only on the social issues of sub-cultures and minorities. Unfortunately, many of these issues are outside the mainstream of American thinking, and in direct opposition to the Founding Principles and Documents that built this nation.


Being progressive should never mean creating a new class of individuals that are rubber stamped by ideologues who care little for our Institutions, or Beliefs.

Being progressive should never mean allowing human beings to act beneath the aspirations of a society and expecting validation from those who oppose it.

Being progressive should always mean striving to become better than what we were yesterday, not returning us to some instinctual behavior that allows us to damage our communities for the sake of a few.

Allowing standards of human behaviors that erode historical and universally accepted standards of human interactions will destroy the ability to build healthy individuals, partnerships, families and whole communities.

There is Evil in this world disguised as a friendly face and compromising heart. There is Evil in this world that will make you think the most horrible crimes against others has redemption attached to it.

When we start to turn away from each other because others say it is right and just, beware of the hidden meaning and consequences of your actions.

We live in dangerous times filled with deception by many who we should trust. Don't be fooled with flowery rhetoric and promises of Utopia. Success through the ages has required hard work and commitment.

We have reached a crossroad in our national will. One must never forget our First Nature is our Perfection at Birth and the Essence of Life itself.

Our Second Nature is to destroy our ability to recognize it.
