My entire life, I have been dreading this day:  when our leaders would start talking about making political arrests.  The history books are full examples and case studies on the subject.

  • Herodotus
  • Thucydides
  • Plutarch
  • Plato
  • Livy
  • Machiavelli
  • Hannah Arendt

The list just goes on and on.  Political processes follow a template – they are predictable.  This is true whether the political parties are liberal or conservative.  In response, a king/consul/president, call him what you may, usually hires a personal “bodyguard”.  This not a guy in a dark suit with sunglasses.  It is a private army.  Here are some past examples:

  • The Immortals – Persian Achaemenid Empire
  • Praetorian Guard – Roman Empire
  • SA or SS – Nazi Germany

Unfortunately, I think the only thing that can save the USA is the direct hand of the Almighty.  But in case He decides not to act, I think we should all be very careful in this new political climate.  People will follow where their leaders lead.
