Outstanding essay. Sharing bigly 😀. If I were able, I would tell Quin Mu there is another way. The Way. You made the beautiful choice regarding that young man. God bless.

your essay ties everything together so beautifully... sadly our world has been reduced to easy sound bites which fail to convey the awesome complexity of the real world, the truth... the kids, especially but not exclusively, cheated out of any educational rigor, lack curiosity or skepticism... they’re suckered into the ‘narratives’ of the elite who provide them with all the one liners necessary to harass & muzzle anyone who dares to question / poke holes in the elite doctrine... unfortunately, whether parents realize it or not, the elite have already coopted the kids into servitude in exchange for the fake, hollowed out promise of a digital utopia...

Thank you. I strongly agree. Some people have suggested I write shorter articles because people don't have the attention span to read longer, more complex essays. I'm sticking with the essays. There are plenty of short articles out there so what would be the point of adding more? I believe in my mission to write these essays. They are out there for anyone who comes across them to read and hopefully they offer, as you say, a deeper perspective to issues that the media feeds to us in never-ending sound bites. Maybe it will remind more people that, yes, it is possible to sit down quietly and forget all the distracts for an hour or two. This is definitely something those in power do NOT want us doing.

Now our very tolerant ASU racial overlords are trying to keep Kyle Rittenhouse from enrolling by claiming he is a violent killer. What can we do about this?

I think he will be okay. He's obviously a strong young man considering what he's been through. He has a lot of people looking out for him. And no doubt some big lawsuits, just like Nick Sandman, who has said he's there for him, to help and advise when needed.

My worry for Kyle is not in the external evil he faces and will continue to face. He’s proven strong enough to resist. Like everyone who sits upon the podium of hero (whether clawing their way to the top or by being elevated there upon adoration for even the best of reasons) the temptation to begin believing only the praise is too much for many. There are few George Washingtons and but one Christ.

Karen, I can't tell you how happy I am to have stumbled across your Substack. I am so bombarded with articles these days I tend to skim through most of them, but yours I take the time to read, word for word.

A brilliant article. Extremely terrifying, but clear on the direction of travel for Western society. I just hope people can see this before it is too late

An engrossing and edifying read, to say the least.

“What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?” is the exact Biblical question that frames, illuminates and ultimately shames these times. The world nothing…less than nothing…compared to the integrity of your soul. I think of this Biblical injunction every day now, and there it was, at the end of your essay. This is the most important phrase of our time. Thank you.

I completely agree. As a Christian, it was extremely comforting to see that you closed the essay with this verse. It’s an answered prayer and a confirmation from God to stay the course and not give in. Thank you so much for your writing. May God bless you and Trish Wood (Trish Wood is Critical Podcast) for the work you both do and for introducing you to her audience.

This was an amazing way to start my morning! Thank you for sharing this insight. May God bless you as you continue this life journey through the madness. God has deemed us to be alive in this point in history for a reason!

Thank you for writing this, KHMezek. I really appreciate your ability to connect the dots. Worldwide dots. It's wonderful reading something so full of humanity -yet written from a "higher" perspective- in times like these, when people can't see further than their own (or given) fears.

I almost stopped reading at “supremacist vigilantes like Kyle Rittenhouse” showing that you did not watch the trial which is surprising since you usually show your penchant for research. However, I continued and saw that you have enough sense of self as to not be manipulated or bought off. I grew up in Los Angeles in the 50’s and 60’s remembering a much nicer place than what I see now. From where do we take truth? I was blessed to live in other parts of the US to see that not everywhere else is LA. My salvation came with Christianity. Godless people are flesh and bones and the truth they believe leads to death. Alive in Christ, we are free indeed.

I have a feeling others stopped reading at that point, so thank you for continuing. I lost some subscribers I think. I went back and corrected it because I do NOT believe he is a white supremacist. I was just listing a bunch of things that many people think, not my opinions. I hope it's clearer now. People are very sensitive to these things.

I agree with Cat regarding her comment. You have once again beautifully outdone yourself. Your writings are a lifeline to me and I am so thankful God had me find you! You truly do have the gift of taking difficult subjects of life and breaking them down into simplicity and beauty. Thank you.

Holy crap, you have outdone yourself on this one! I am sobbing as I read this. So much to unpack here. I also love Shantarum, have read it 3X and keep extra copies to give away. Thank you for being a voice of grace in the wilderness of madness. I do believe we are at the cusp of an evolutionary choice for humankind - do we continue to give authority - whether it is the old white man with a beard in the sky, or government, or doctors - permission to make decisions for us, or do we saddle up and say "we are fully responsible for every choice we make and it's subsequent consequences?" I see such a clear dividing line between these two camps. If nothing else, the last 2 years have shown me who I want walking beside me into the future and who will not be traveling that road. Again, thank you for using your skill as a writer to present complicated issues in such simple understandings.
