Standing on seven principles makes you unbeatable

When you are backed into a corner, only two options are apparent. One is to continue to be squeezed, and the other is to come out fighting. Both are untenable. The solution, as I said in previous posts, is to turn around and go through the little door in the back of the corner. That is to do what is in everyone's best interest.

Consider what that means. It leaves no one out. You are not standing on the principles if you are sending in the troops, or bombing strongholds. 

If there are ISIS sleeper cells in every country and every state in response to George W. Bush's statement that "we will fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here," by starting a feud, we insure that we will fight them over here. 

We can't fight ISIS and expect not to face our own "Arab Spring."

The application of the principles is what is important. We can't state that we stand on the principles and then act based on the power games. 

The solution is not to fight ISIS, but to support the creation of the international government, because
  • it treats everyone fairly and equally, 
  • it guarantees our inalienable rights granted to us by our Creator, 
  • it gives us the right to leave a nation if we believe we have been treated unfairly, 
  • it encourages governments to be supportive of its people rather than oppressive,
  • it creates a sense of abundance for every person
  • the abundance is based on natural resources and one's talents and gifts so no one is left out
  • it is tolerant, not judgmental
By fighting ISIS, or any other extremist group, you escalate the violence and you create a feud.

Our organization is parallel to the international government, and many people have been backed into the corner. Many of them are, or were, attorneys, and their reactions to crimes have been to call the authorities and to file charges, but the oppressive force that they are fighting are oftentimes people who were dragged into the conflict, and had no way out of their own corner, except by fighting. Ripples of effects have gone out from the original grand lie. The two sides of the organization have been kept separated, and both sides are told lies. There has been punishment that far surpasses the minor reaction, extortion and far worse crimes, even against babies. 

This is how genocides function. Revenge brings in five power games, including slavery and genocide. 

The games are bad, not the people. Everyone has backed themselves into the corner by playing the games.

The Light Source invention demonstrates how the principles create a sense of balance again, because they give people what they lack.  You want people to come toward you because you offer something that the oppressors won't and can't.

ISIS offers mankind a choice, and nothing more. There are other people on the planet who are grabbing for power, too, and see the collapse of the U.S. power base (for not standing on the principles in Iraq) as their opportunity to become the most powerful person on the planet.

True power comes from assuming responsibility to undo the damage that has been done.
