Walk Away

How do you transform your country?

You walk away.

You change yourself; and when you find that people aren’t behaving in the manner that you now subscribe to, you walk away.

If you find yourself in the CIA, and they are asking you to do something that you feel is immoral, you walk away.

You don’t do what the coward, Mike Pompeo, did which is to justify the immorality.  

You don’t tell yourself:  Well, somebody’s got to do the job.

You don’t tell yourself there’s a lot of bad actors out there while conveniently forgetting that it was your immorality that created them.

You walk away.

Nobody can force you to stay in the CIA and do things that are immoral. 

You walk away.

Don’t be a whistleblower; don’t betray them.  Walk away.

When they ask why you are leaving, you don’t have to tell them anything. Walk away.

These immoral organizations are not entitled to know why you are walking away. Just walk away.

Go get another job. Go back to school. Go work at McDonald’s.

Walk away.

You’re not  going to transform the CIA by betraying it. You’re just going to make your life miserable.  

Walk away. It’s not your job to educate stupid people. You can’t fix stupid anyway.

Walk away.

The salvation of a nation begins with you.

The Soviet Union was not defeated by the West.  It collapsed because its people walked away.  They left in the droves physically, then mentally.

The Aztec Empire was not defeated by Cortez and his Spanish horse; it collapsed because its people walked away. They tired of human sacrifice and seeing their loved ones chopped to bits to celebrate the leader’s birthday.

Rome wasn’t defeated by the Visigoths.  It was defeated by Christianity.  

The people of Rome found something better than the false gods of power, money, statues and fancy estates.

The walked away.
