Let’s start with some good news: It’s just a matter of time before Washington DC ceases to control the people living in what we now call America.
One day soon there will be no more DC-centered power.
One day soon there will be no pledges taken to the indivisible power of a DC-centered political beast.
The time of centralized power in the hands of anti-Christian Statists is coming to an end, and much sooner than they would even have us imagine possible.
Which is why the coming Brexit vote in Britain absolutely terrifies pagan elites atop the DC-centered Republican/Democrat beast. Even the fact of such a vote – however this one turns out – points people and minds in directions that they just don’t want us to know exist, much less begin to consider as viable (or even preferred) options to the present arrangement of centralized power in places like Brussels and Washington DC.
While there’s much that could (and should) be said and explored about the coming Brexit vote later this month, and I do hope to chase after many of the very worthwhile rabbits related to this issue in future posts, it seems important to take a moment to focus one core aspect of Brexit.
Before diving any deeper though, and for those unfamiliar with what we’re talking about here, “Brexit” refers to a vote to be taken as to whether Britain should leave – or take an exit from – the European Union. This is, needless to say, a big deal.
A very big deal.
As in: A very big potential step toward the single most hated governmental concept known to Statists of all flavors (European, American, Soviet, etc.).
We’re talkin’ decentralization.
The decentralization of power, and in big way.
Statists in America want us to find even the thought of a post-America reality reprehensible to the point of being blasphemous, heretical, and utterly unthinkable.
To imagine life without DC above us is to be an unforgivable sin against the idol of American patriotism.
To imagine that your home state might actually not only be able to survive, but thrive, apart from any binding subjugation to Washington DC is thought crime of the highest order…and it is often so with professing conservative Christians even more so than others. That’s how far we’ve fallen. That’s how thoroughly we’ve been programmed to worship the America idol.
But we really don’t need DC.
Moreover, we really need to not have DC.
And more and more people are beginning to wake up to that reality.
Which is why Brexit is nearly as terrifying to American Statists as it is to their European counterparts.
Take a moment to savor the changes that are beginning to bubble up.
Take a moment to pray for the inevitable wave of decentralization to build and grow.
Take the time to pray and prepare so that God’s people might seize the many incredible opportunities that are right around the corner.
Take a while to ponder post-DC life in what we now call America.
Decentralization is coming, whether they like it or not and whether we like it or not. It is an inevitable consequence of the Gospel-fueled Great Commission.
Which points us quite neatly to why Statists of all stripes hate it so much.
