The Great Trump Wall: Guarding My Country, Garden, and Selfhood from Greedy Dragons
Vanity | 4/1/2016 | Pocono PunditPosted on 4/1/2016, 6:51:50 AM by poconopunditTrump’s promise to build a Great Wall across America’s southern border is the cornerstone of today’s movement to take back our country from the corrupt leaders on Wall Street and in our government.
But Trump’s call for a defensive perimeter extends far beyond mere physical walls. It’s also about the right to protect our private property from the greedy hands of the leftists. Wrapping some deeper thinking and images around the concept of Walls is what this story is about. Many thanks to FReeper tinyowl for inspiring many of these thoughts. Let’s first take a look at protective walls and boundaries through the prism of martial arts.The heritage of Chinese martial arts like Kung Fu and Tai Chi has brought us some enduring graphic symbols to think about. One such symbol is a garden surrounded by tigers. To preserve that peaceful, beautiful and gentle garden, we need tigers to protect it.
Whenever we create a community or build things of value, there are always greedy dragons out there who want to steal it, destroy it or deface it. Today’s assault on America is not just an assault at our borders: there are also smaller scale encroachments starting with the self, then family, friends, and our businesses. And the Politically Correct want you to be weak and let anyone walk into your garden and steal things from it. After all, you have no right to your garden, “you didn’t build that — you stole it from the rest of us”. Naturally, the aim is to attack anyone who is successful. And you do that by frustrating and tiring the tigers — make them fall asleep. Interestingly, the Founding Fathers had the same martial spirit as Trump.
They regarded private property as one of the inalienable rights — and just as important as the freedoms of religion and the press. So Trump’s mission to build walls is really a call for America to return to its original principles. And to succeed in strenghening the walls around America’s gardens requires Trump and millions of his loyal tigers to do battle with and conquer the PC dragons.In short, Trump is about stopping the trespassers — at a personal, family, business, community level. And if you’re one of the trespassers who doesn’t care for personal or physical boundaries, then you will naturally see Trump as boorish and angry. The trespassers are the ones who notice the tigers as they encroach on someone’s garden. Some people are never going to appreciate how Trump cares about the people around him, his positivity, and his will to improve and build things.
That’s because the greedy dragons won’t or can’t build anything of enduring value themselves — such as a career, a business, a family, etc. Maybe they sense no garden in their own lives and therefore don’t understand what it is that Trump guards. Throughout his career, Trump has rigorously defended his company from attacks. And he’s admitted that if you don’t sue for your rights, people will take advantage and you will actually encourage the greedy dragons to attack you all the more. Trump is definitely a tiger, or maybe one of those fierce Lions you see guarding Chinese temples. Trump is a good guy who’s a bit eccentric. What’s often perceived as vanity in Trump is simply the by-product of his enormous pride of ownership and his drive to achieve.And these qualities, of course, are precisely what’s made him a success in business and would help him become a great President.
The willingness to stand up and protect your garden doesn’t make you a negative person. On the contrary, the tigers of America have been too silent, and they have allowed the country to slip into mediocrity. And if we don’t wake up soon and take action, our country could very rapidly deteriorate into a kind of Occupy Wall Street slum.No surprise that the leftists are pushing back hard against Trump’s self-defense philosophy. They call it “hateful anger” and claim that people who build walls are “racists”.The blurring of boundaries is exactly what the globalists seek: to shame us for wanting walls because their goal is to take away our sovereignty. Their goal is to get rich as they pretend to build the “great utopia” for the obedient masses.
So the question becomes, how do you teach Americans that they can be proud to protect what they have? How do you present the idea of “walls” or “guarding what’s yours” in a way that influences people waffling in the middle?Unfortunately the only ones we can probably reach are a small minority — maybe 10% of the citizens. Generally these are the people the left has shamed to follow the PC line. Yet inside, many of these followers have grave doubts, which means there’s still hope of winning them over.Perhaps the key lesson to learn is that the boundary being violated is each individual’s selfhood. The one-worlders are out to….MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!
