Radical decentralization is coming.
The localized empowerment of people, families, and small communities though God’s provision of incredible technologies and opportunities the likes of which were unthinkable or limited to works of science-fiction just a few decades ago is really, truly, and actually coming our way.
No matter how hard the forces of Corporate/State-consolidated power struggle to suppress it (and they will), their fictional social, economic, and political super-structures are all coming down.
As we live though this amazing period of transition from the old, dying world to the new, vibrant, one to come, it’s particularly interesting to watch the way God uses unbelievers to accomplish His purposes and benefit His people.
The decentralization-fueling technologies of our time are mostly products of unbelieving minds and anti-Christian corporate structures (all borrowing from God’s wisdom by His grace as they go about creating the good things that they manage to make, of course), and many of the political movements that will be of significant benefit in the long run are passionately advanced these days by both unbelieving Leftists and unbelieving self-described conservatives.
One cool example of this has come in two waves over the past several years. First during the Obama administration when talk of secession began to get some traction outside of its traditional pools of support. Then, after the election of President Trump, a second wave of pro-secession sentiment hit, this time from more of those on the political left.
In between the two waves, we had Brexit.
So secession is definitely A Thing right now.
And that Thing is a good thing.
We’ve been chronicling this encouraging trend from a Christian worldview perspective for some time now. Before continuing on with this latest ping on the good news radar, here’s a list of some past FBC articles along these lines that might help to get a better sense of just how important and how good this decentralization thing really can be:
We’ve also podcasted on this subject (and hope to again soon). (See: Technology, Opportunity, Hope and Decentralization – Fire Breathing Christian Podcast Episode 8.)
Okay, now on to the reason why we’re happily touching on this subject again…
In an article posted Thursday (Calexit backers can begin collecting signatures to qualify for 2018 ballot), The Sacramento Bee provided the following bits of encouragement as to how more and more people are beginning to openly question the wisdom of remaining bound and chained to Washington DC:
Backers of a proposed constitutional amendment seeking California’s secession from the U.S. can begin collecting voter signatures to qualify for the 2018 ballot, the secretary of state’s office said Thursday.
The so-called Calexit movement emerged within days of the upset presidential victory of Republican Donald Trump, who lost California by nearly 4.3 million votes. A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that nearly one in three Californians support the state leaving the U.S.
Of course, even if a near-one-third support level is real, this is a long shot movement…for now.
But as the System of systems propped up by the black magic fiction of the US Dollar inevitably frays, cracks, crumbles and falls around us, more and more eyes will open. More and more minds will think. More and more people will ask questions and propose answers that were simply not allowed to be taken seriously in our Corporate/State-controlled culture.
Questions like: Who really needs DC anyway?
And answers like: Not us.
