The Invisible Rhythm of Politics

Newton's Third Law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. What if this is true in politics as well as physics?

The coming movie "Cristiada" chronicles the three year Cristeros War in Mexico when the government attempted to secularize the nation, much the same as the Obama Administration is working to secularize America. This was a shooting war, a people's war against a Utopian government. The movie trailer states: "When the government outlawed faith ... the faithful became outlaws," which is meant to be understood as "the faithful became freedom fighters." An equal and opposite reaction?

The Obama Administration's headlong plunge into leftist Utopian dictatorial policies, which in another time and place would have been called "fascism," has given rise to it's own equal and opposite reaction: many people joining liberty movements and freedom causes. Tea Party gatherings. Passionate crowds at Ron Paul rallies. Mushrooming sales of guns and ammunition. Popular authors turning to themes of American societal collapse and/or even coming civil war.

The prolific author, William Johnstone, published in 2011 the first in a planned fictional series about America after an Obama-like President allows the country to degenerate and be attacked by Islamic nukes. This first book in the series is entitled Phoenix Rising, with the subtitle statement "When freedom's under fire, America fights back!" An equal and opposite reaction?

"Newly elected U.S. President Ohmshidi is sharing the wealth, rewriting the Constitution, and changing the National Anthem. But when he begins to implement his agenda - banning oil production, slashing military budgets, and establishing a 'New World Order' - our nation becomes the target for a new wave of Muslim extremists, who rename America 'The Islamic Republic of Enlightenment.' Enter Jake Lantz, a seasoned army major and ace helicopter pilot who assembles Firebase Freedom, a ragtag team of action-ready soldiers and patriots in order to take on the violent 'Army of Allah.' Jake's mission: Take back America." (Amazon.com review of Phoenix Rising)

Best selling author, Brad Thor, writes in his 2011 novel Full Black:

"What we discovered was that beginning in the 1940s, radical elements inside the United States had recognized that there were these huge piles of money just sitting inside multiple large foundations and endowments all across the country. These big government collectivists, globalists, socialists and communists realized that if they could get into positions of power, say on the boards of directors at the foundations or the endowments, they could steer the money any way they wanted. And that is exactly what they did.

"On top of indoctrinating kids, Standing wanted to get as many people dependent upon the government as possible. Government handouts, even for corporations, are like heroin. Most people, once they're hooked, remain hooked and don't even realize it. They rationalize that they are entitled to the handouts.

"History also shows us that once a democracy goes down this road.... Each and every single time, the democracy collapses. It always happens. Democracy is always followed by dictatorship. And guess what the dictator promises?"

Is Brad Thor one of many making up an equal and opposite reaction?

Maybe Newton's Third Law helps us understand Lesson 23 of the Course in Political Miracles: "I see my enemies working for my success."

Never despair when progress seems to be made by those with false ideas.  For every action by those with false ideas there is an equal and opposite reaction of truth.

The device which even more deeply prepares freedom lovers for success, A Course in Miracles , talks about our ultimate need to free ourselves from every kind of slavery:

You have been told to bring the darkness to the light, and guilt to holiness. And you have also been told that error must be corrected at its source. Therefore, it is the tiny part of your self, the little thought that seems split off and separate, that the Holy Spirit needs. The rest is fully in God's keeping, and needs no guide. But this wild and delusional thought needs help, because, in its delusions, it thinks it is the Son of God, whole and omnipotent, sole ruler of the kingdom it set apart to tyrannize by madness into obedience and slavery.
