Eye of the Red Tsar

Want a good read?

Sam Eastland’s Eye of the Red Tsar is one you will not put down, once begun.

I began the book without reading the data regarding his historical research, suspecting as I read, “this man has done his homework”.

Having read on this era for 40+ years, I was amazed at his insights and attention to detail. So much, so, I couldn’t put the book down!

His conclusion has me waiting for the sequel!

Pick it up.

I suspect he is going to develop for us a side of Stalin we haven't considered, yet will give evidence of what some theologians designate as God's Common Grace manifest amongst the worst of us.

A concept we generally seek to deny and or avoid

Shades of 1984

Wow! has it been that long since a posting on my part? Call me Bob van Winkle.

I haven't been asleep, though I wish that were the case: simply dormant and/or frustrated.

We are one step away from war on three fronts, as per Orwell’s plot.

Currently, we are engaged in six wars: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen and the “global war on terror”.

Odds are, the man on the street paying the bills, hasn’t the foggiest as to the count.

Given the present state of our educational system, he/she couldn’t locate 2/3rds of the locations on a map, if asked.

Nor could a goodly number of our politicians, as history demonstrated prior to the launch on Afghanistan back in the day.

We have become a nation governed by the military/industrial complex, manipulating behind the scenes those ostensibly elected to represent us.

This is simply a new look for Junta.

We lost the republic a long time ago, proving Franklin right.

Now, what?

Reminds me of the scene in the movie Dr. Zhivago where the folk are being transported in the railroad car along with a “convict” chained to the bunk. Only the convict recognizes Freedom. The system has to chain him, whereas the rest acquiesce with the system’s dictates.

Once upon a time, those comprising the nation displayed a flag saying "Don't tread On Me". Seems to me, we have "advanced' to the place where our flag is a doormat saying "Walk on Me".

Shamgar! Where are you?
