28 January 2014. A Point to Ponder… Where Have All the Heroes Gone?

On 22 February 1943, the Fascists executed Sophie Scholl for opposing their warmongering and racialist policies. There’s no doubt that she was a heroine. Today, we saw the death of Pete Seeger, a man unafraid of the authorities if there ever was one. Where have all the heroes gone? They’re here… but the lamestream media lambastes them. My view is simple… if Rush Limbaugh, the Heritage Foundation, Freedom House, CNN, the Council on Foreign Relations, and Barbara Boxer (they’re all the same under the skin… they’re all neoliberal backers of Me-First Consumerism) trash you, you’re doing something right.

Keep up the fight… but don’t forget, “freedom ain’t free”. Shall you swallow a kopeck’s worth? As Sophie Scholl wrote:

I’m still so remote from God that I don’t even sense his presence when I pray. Sometimes, when I utter God’s name, in fact, I feel like sinking into a void. It isn’t a frightening or dizzying sensation, it’s nothing at all… and that’s far more terrible. Yet, prayer is the only remedy for it, and however many devils scurry around inside me, I’ll cling to the rope God threw me in Jesus Christ, even if my numb hands can no longer feel it.

One of her associates was Alexander Schmorell, a Russo-German, canonised by the ROCOR in 2012.
