The Shrew View: A Bad Dream For The Caravan.
My heart goes out to all the migrants from Honduras who have made the torturously long journey for better lives. Traveling as a caravan would certainly bring more protections for those members who are most vulnerable to physical harm and manipulation by undesirable players, but aren’t there even greater risks to these people if the coordination of the caravans were done through deceitful means?
The ends are clear to me at this point. The USA is to be viewed in the wider setting as a cruel nation, from its birth right to the present. But let us not take our focus away from where the migrants of today have come…Honduras is a failing country and the examination of this fact will make it clear to all that an evil energy is working to create the same fate for the USA (Spoiler alert, it is not climate change!!).
I am not a “doomsdayer”. I am a realist. In fact I believe there is no Utopia in this world beyond my ability to live my life on my terms which is what we know as the “American Dream”. You may think me foolish, but I believe that in this country there are criminals, homeless persons, and loners who are themselves actually living in their own Utopia…constructing a way of life that makes them happy on their own terms. Others might look as these folks with pity and say that they must be helped, but we cannot construct a Utopian way of life for them because it would be our idea and not theirs.
This brings me back to the caravan. In Honduras their is no “Honduran Dream” even though the government is a Democratic Republic. The military coup of ten years ago set the stage for a constitutional crisis because, simply put, the beaurocratic effort to rewrite their constitution had no rules…no one could agree on how to begin the process! The people of the country were not consulted because their rights are considered too limited! And their Attourney General was not able to reconcile a civil rights process. THIS IS WHY OUR FOUNDERS WERE SO INGENIOUS WITH THEIR PROCESS FOR THE US CONSTITUTION!! Our Founders had the educated study of human history over thousands of years as their baseline. We in this day and age refuse to take this into account because we want to only live in the present. Learning from our past means to not repeat our mistakes and our Constitution allows for this practice.
Hondurans at our border have been sold a bad dream that they are now living as reality. Who are the manipulators of this bad dream? This must be the focus of discussion. God help them…
