26,000 troops are in the capital city to protect the nation from insurrectionists.
That is what we are told.
Ostensibly it’s a show of force.
But it’s really a demonstration of weakness.
That we would need 26,000 troops to protect an inauguration reveals treacherous fault lines within the nation.
These fault lines however do not exist within the citizenry; they exist within the leadership of the United States.
Our leadership in the United States of America is deeply flawed.
By placing 26,000 troops in the nation’s capital to protect the inauguration, our leadership has indicted itself.
They have created distrust and divisiveness within the nation that has led to this.
A good leader forestalls distrust and divisiveness.
The distrust and paranoia is so great that our leadership is even now afraid of the very troops that they have brought into the Capitol building.
Such distrust is the hallmark of a police state not unlike that of Nazi Germany.
Why should we be surprised?
A police state is precisely what our leader ship has created over the past 50 to 70 years.
They have over-centralized power within the federal government and within the large corporations that rape the citizenry of its treasury through wars foreign and domestic.
Through intolerance, revenge and condemnation they have created a climate of fear that now encircles back to confine them.
Thus, our leader ship has declared itself incompetent and therefore incapable of leading the people.
By attempting to protect themselves with 26,000 troops, they have brought their own demise ever closer.
They have done so by revealing their weakness.
It is the weak leader who must show force.
It is the strong leader who can admit that he might be wrong.
The strong leader says: I am at fault here. I wasn’t listening to the people. I can make changes.
The weak leader rules like King Louis and Marie Antoinette.
The weak leader says: Let them eat cake. I am the state.
The strong leader looks after the citizenry first and his own fortune second.
Our leaders are weak leaders.
In time they will be deposed, and no army of any strength will protect them.
