"The Earth is degenerating today.
Bribery and corruption abound.
Children no longer obey their parents,
every man wants to write a book, and
it is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching."
c. 2800 BC [also attributed to Socrates]

    What goes around, comes around. What was seemingly an accurate observation by the Assyrian Tablet author, Socrates or whom ever, concerning the perception of their world; now becomes more accurate as the global degeneration has become more deadly with the science of our day. The nature of man, for good and for evil, continues unchanged through out the ages.

    The king must have meat for his table ! They rise and they fall, more than not through the loosening of moral standards by a ruling party, setting parents at odds with their children, being influence by the outside authority promoting perverted behavior for profit. For the kings table no doubt ! Historical accounts are staggering. Anonymous, must work for the current ruling party perpetuating the degeneration of our nations faith and codes of morality, torn apart by small minds in places of power. Like democracies, they never last very long, before reduced to tyranny and despotism. all of the world eating from a few hands under the disguise of democracy. Food, water, clothing and shelter, medication.

    Liberty and Freedom ( God's rest ) denied the people. Liberty from oppression. The thorn in the side of Fabian socialism. Being judged by the law of liberty. There is a time appointed ! As there is a diminishing of one, first, then the increase of the other." Except there come a falling away first." Just as in the past, an appearing, so also to come. Visitation.
