I am Octavius, a voice of the People of our Country. I am Publius, a voice that defends our Country from the corrupt government in DC.
Never in my life have I sought to gain a reward from my country I did not earn. Never did I contemplate playing on the fears and weaknesses of others to gain my living and pay my rent. Thus, I never considered a career in politics, systematized activism, or crime.
Perhaps it’s because I believe seeking to do for my country, not contemplating what it can do for me, that has led me to a working man’s life
Perhaps it’s because I believe in hard work and gaining from the fruits of my labor, not the extortion of others to pay my way in this world that prevented me from seeking public office.
Perhaps it’s because I’m not a disgruntled bartender, angry with the circumstances of a personal foreclosure, and looking to inflict, with fierce exactitude, a settlement against a country she feels wronged her and her family, that I refrained from believing the lies of socialism.
I’ve never believed that this country, based on Liberty and truth, has wronged me. Moreover, I could never envision myself marching on the streets of this beloved land of Liberty, telling those who have not worked or earned to the extent of others, yet who believe themselves entitled to the riches of others who they perceive more fortunate than them, that they are correct in their thinking and all they need to do is vote for me and we can exact vengeance against the rich and affluent together.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democratic Socialist, and a newly elected congresswoman from New York, has unambiguously stated exactly this.
Nomenclature aside, in my mind’s eye and across my rational consciousness, a socialist is a socialist regardless how they arrange their title.
The reason I hold the socialist to such a strict delineation is because of their unmistakable savage impact on human history.
In 1930s Germany, the National Socialist German Workers Party, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP), also came as a savior to the common workers, the disenfranchised, and the disillusioned and spoke elegantly about how a vote for them meant a better future, and an escape from their plight.
60,000,000 million people died before the NSDAP’s socialistic lies could be eradicated from the human cognizance.
In early 1900s Russia, the Russian Politburo came offering the same reprisal on the rich and assumed privileged of society.
Millions upon millions paid for the lies of Marx, Lenin, and Stalin.
At the turn of the twentieth century Mao Zedong appeared as the breath of a new generation, speaking directly to the Chinese youth and ignited a savage and brutal uprising that left countless of millions starving, dead or imprisoned.
Nothing is free, no matter who says it to you.
There is no us versus them.
Those who speak in the divisive platitudes of the socialist mantra, and become infatuated with the hateful prosaicisms of the vengeful socialist, will reap the reward of the beguiled and deceived.
The time to defeat the socialist is as soon as they appear. They must be stopped and their ideas exterminated at their infancy. The longer they spew their hatred, the tougher it will be to remove their evil mendacities from the human perception.
Ask the German, Russian, Chinese people of yesteryear about the first cut of the socialist.
It is a deep, savage cut.
Once the socialist draws first blood, it is difficult to stop the bleeding.
Remember the suffering, desperate cries of the millions of victims of socialism the next time Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez splashes her magnificent visions of vengeance across your mind.
It’s like the old Janis Joplin classic.
The first cut is the deepest.

Emergence Theory Series The Word
Emergence theory proposes a bold scientific assertion: that reality is made up of information, and nothing else.
In this area, according to Biblical truth, this is not a scientific theory—it is a fact.
While science lags behind in embracing the entirety of information, and its powerful, all-encompassing influence and control on reality, essentially its grasp of this fundamental point allows for further discussion and realization to occur. The realization that some information took on a much higher, non-physical property within the realm of universal consciousness, as well as within its measure of non-corporal outcome.
In the book of John, (John 1) Jesus is measured and calculated as the Word.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
There is mathematical precision in the calculation. Everything made was made by the Logos. The measured composition of everything—including the missing mass science can never identify, not even locate. In fact, the Logosis not the theory of everything that science is attempting to develop, instead, the Logos is the actuality of all matter and antimatter, and the true and absolute consciousness of reality.
The Logos is the eternal conscious observer. By divinity assuming physical form, the portal into the nonphysical and fundamental was opened. Conversely, the door from the spiritual into the physical was unsealed.
The teachings of the Logos evidence and substantiate that the universe is, in fact, composed of information.
At Golgotha, Christ “finished” the salvation mission and universal consciousness assumed its prominent position of causality. Essentially, by offering himself as a sacrifice and dying on the cross, Jesus collapsed the wave function, not just regarding one event, in a fixed point in human history, but in a sweeping, galactic, all-encompassing specific event, and precise mathematical formula.It is Finished
There are a certain, precise amount of souls requiring salvation. The mathematical formula would need to be known and able to be measured, for salvation to be accurately administered. It was for this reason that Jesus was infinitely aware of his virtue and its outflow and consumption.
And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
The highest singularity is reached within the consciousness of the Logos. Divinity is fused with flesh, heaven and earth are completed. Moreover, the geometric conclusion of reality, and everything in it, is finished.
There are other geometric conclusions arrived at.
All is finished. All measuring, all theorizing—all is determined.
Science continues to measure and analyze, but instead of analyzing physical matter and perceived energy, they should be analyzing the unseen, unbounded, immeasurable dimensions of the substance of faith.The Life of Light
The Word is the light of the world. The Light of the Word is Life.
Science doesn’t know exactly what light is, nor does it have knowledge of its true rate of travel. It’s estimated that light travels at 186,000 miles a second in a perfect vacuum. But that’s according to our perceived knowledge.
Geometric languages, periodic patterns, all of Quantum Gravity Research’s emergence theory is based on numeric calculations, as is all of our known existence.
Word is expression, communication, and declaration—all of the things and beliefs that emergence theory infers. Furthermore, Word emphatically denotes such concrete meaning as forcibly as a theory of everything would.
Science reduces the overwhelming information that has been accumulated, which declares a higher, far more profound consciousness, to the level of our instruments and distorted perception.
Even science’s own conclusions disclose that the immense information that fills the realm of the known universe is transcended by what can only be described as heavenly information.
Although the “God Particle” wasn’t, the mistake was in science’s limited, narrow-minded consciousness of a reality they have no knowledge of.
If God was the Word, then God is Information. Not cold, calculated information, or some inanimate force, but an actual presence able to feel emotions, exist, and be alive. In order to move forward, science must be willing to completely reveal what the math discloses.
When science comes to this level of consciousness, then the answers they are so desperately seeking to find, will materialize.

Associated Press Yellow Journalism
I lump verizon/yahoo and the Associated Press into the same pile of leftist, biased, propaganda excrement, including the likes of CNN, illegally taxpayer funded NPR, and MSNBC, and now even some parts of FOX News. I felt it fitting to address a recent post of AP yellow journalism posted on yahoo entitled “Where do the investigations related to Trump stand?”
While I’ve grown accustomed to AP’s slapstick flair for spilling ink on paper and scribbling lies, it still gnaws at me how nonchalant they are in spreading their mendacities.
The faux news article makes several erroneous claims, highlighted by two outright fabrications.
One, that Trump called Cohen a liar.
First of all, Trump didn’t say Cohen lied, Mueller’s own report not only stated Cohen lied, Cohen himself admitted to lying to Mueller’s team of legal hired guns.Second, adding legal tasks to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Mueller WAS SUPPOSED to be looking into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia. Instead, the examination has exploded to include anything and everything about Trump’s life.
Never has a US sitting president been so investigated, and tried in the court of public opinion.It’s a nauseating investigation that is dirty, illegal, and corrupt at its core.
Kolfage’s Wall Fund
Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee Air Force veteran, has the great American spirit to serve and love our Republic that never seems to tire.
Brian, a purple heart recipient, lost three limbs serving our country. It hasn’t stopped him from standing for what is right and leading the way toward a better future.
In an impassioned declaration, Brian started a GoFundMe campaign, titled “We the People Will Fund the Wall” that’s collected nearly $16 million in a week. The goal of the campaign is $1 billion.
“It's time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT! It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling,” Brian wrote on the page.
Great story, right?
Until, like a malignant yin to Brian’s yang, an opposite GoFundMe campaign was started to counter the “We the People” campaign, fittingly titled “Ladders to Get Over Trump’s Wall.” While Brian’s campaign was designed to be of help to preserving our culture, the ladders campaign was intended to help illegal aliens and hurt US citizens.
I find it unconscionable that there are those in our country who would rather help foreigners attempting to illegally cross our border, instead of helping many of our citizens who are suffering, financially and otherwise. Moreover, by helping the illegal aliens, those who contributed to the ladders campaign are, arguably, breaking the law.
While shutting down the government took strength of character from our president, it’s the citizens of our country who have contributed to the build the wall campaign who deserve the highest veneration. Our tax money should always be allocated for the safety and well-being of our citizenry.
By donating to build the wall, essentially the donors are paying double tax.
Thanks to Brian, and the brave souls who gave above and beyond the expected, the message sent to the “do nothing” legislators in DC is clear: If you won’t use our tax money for the good of our country and build the wall—we will.Photos: Sharon McCutcheon and Samuel Zeller https://www.yahoo.com/news/look-where-investigations-related-trump-stand-050302191.html https://www.dailywire.com/news/39631/gofundme-border-wall-hits-15m-counter-campaign-joseph-curl http://baltazarbolado.com On twitter: https://twitter.com/baltazar_bolado Author of: http://baltazarbolado.com/book/publius-liberatas-aut-mors/ http://baltazarbolado.com/book/paint-black/
In recent days, our Republic has witnessed and been subjected to more buffalo bull chips and meadow muffins from the political pit called DC than our mental soil can absorb, and our civic sensitivity can decompose.
The avalanche of lies, distortion, and outright manipulation of our so called public servants makes me want to puke.
From Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer warning us that our world will come crashing down, and the universe will spin out of control, if, God forbid, the government shutdown, to James Comey, and his merry band of leftist zealots trying to reinvent the English language to assuage his/ their guilt of wrong doing, our Republic has been inundated with the sordid travesties of lifer politicians and the false pretenses of dirty cops.
No, the sky won’t fall if the government is shutdown, and yes, Comey is a dirty cop.
Political codswallop isn’t new, sad to say.
In fact, it’s SOP politics stinking to high heaven, like the political sewage pits that congest and plug Chicago’s political sludge every election cycle.
We’ve heard it all before, and it amazes me how some people can enjoy smelling the stench of fossilized rhetoric, even smile as, over and over again, the same lifer representatives tell us the horror that will take place if the gargantuan governmental monster we call DC doesn’t stay open to waste and mismanage our taxes.
What they conveniently neglect to tell us, is that while all the calamity is occurring because of their absence, the one thing that is efficient in DC—perfect and flawless, actually—is the payment schedule for the legislators who are culpable for the shutdown in the first place.
It’s the same line and bull we’ve heard and seen, time and time again.
We lose, and they get paid, always get paid.
Now, in the twenty-first century, when much of civilization has improved and been enhanced, these pathetic lawmakers have the nerve to fill our ears and rot our minds with political defecation born of corruption and exploitation on the grandest scale.
Have we not matured enough as a constituency to rid ourselves of such maniacal public servants who dare to insult our intelligence by offering the same lies from failed office-bearers of yesteryear?
Are we so gullible as to sit still and take more abuses?
In 2016, I didn’t vote for Trump, I voted for the construction of a wall. The revulsion I feel today, upon hearing that the president is open to considering the stop-gap funding bill the senate approved in an effort to avert government shutdown, is beyond the scale of comprehension. I’m still moved by his “I’m proud to shutdown the government for border security, because the people of this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems, and drugs pouring into our country” declaration.
I’m further stirred by his tweet “In our Country, so much money has been poured down the drain, for so many years, but when it comes to Border Security and the Military, the Democrats fight to the death.”
If he knows this, why then knowingly shake hands with the devil?
I’m not sure I want the answer to this question. But I dread answering another question even more.
A question our posterity will confront us with.

The following post Stonewall Betrayal—High Crimes, Dirty Cops, and Broken Promises was first published on Baltazar's Blog
Taking a knee is not American.
Only a leftist/socialist/democrat (LSD) like O'Rourke, or the twisted minds of the radicals who have taken over the democratic party and destroyed all but remnants of liberalism, would think so.
Our Founders showed us what it is to be American.
When confronted with injustices they didn't take a knee in 1776. When people were pushed up against the wall and their liberty was threatened, they stood like Patriots and made a stand.
The warmth of peace gives all citizens comfort. But only Liberty can give flavor and blessing to peace. Without liberty the idea of the United States of America would die.
Destiny Calls To Us
Liberalism is not an enemy to our country.
The political LSD movement emerging out of a rat hole within the democratic party is.
The LSD movement radicals are belligerent and are pursuing their ideological objectives militantly.
They are dangerous and a powder keg on the verge of violently exploding.
If Cruz wins in Texas, it is certain that they will use the same tactics they’ve used in DC against President Trump and declare Senator Cruz an illicit, unconstitutional senator.
They will use every means necessary to accomplish their objectives, regardless of the cost, irrespective of the consequences.
Mark my words: they will not go peacefully into the night. They have poured in tons of money into the Texas senatorial race because they are testing the models they will be using in every coming election, in every state.
If our Republic is to endure, we must make a stand, not take a knee.
The LSD movement will not allow us to exist if we are weak. Only in strength can we make a stand. Only in strength can our Republic be.
We are the saviors of this generation.
Destiny calls to us.

On cue with their war to prevent—at all cost—the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Emma Gonzalez, one of the leading leftist promoters urging our country to move toward socialism, spoke out viciously against the judge. Using personal attack, social status, and skin color as her modus operandi, Gonzalez used an old, scripted, harangue straight out of the leftist playbook.
This is no surprise. No startling revelation.
Not only was her diatribe a retread of old leftist ideas, she regurgitated the same ancient syntactic hierarchy and groupings to assault the constant target the leftists have had their sights on for generations: the privileged white male. (Their wording)
While it’s disheartening, and quite frankly revolting, that such a young mind would be using such familiar ancient leftist arguments and lines of attack against the same old targets, it is revealing.
The leftist playbook not only doesn’t change in its communication schemes, it also doesn’t modify its message. Since before 1860, fast forward to now, the leftist message has remained the same.
The evil taking place in our country, in the modern era, is that leftism/socialism is coming at us from a liberal rat hole within the Democratic Party.
Liberalism is dying, nearly dead.
Never have I declared liberalism an enemy of our country.
I was raised by a JFK liberal.
The enemy of our country is a much more sinister adversary. An enemy that has cost the lives of hundreds of millions of people and destroyed many countries.
The rise of Bernie Sanders has ushered in a new era that has distorted the internal Democratic Party mechanics and shoved the entire liberal platform of the party to the far side of its central platform. What we have now is a grotesque reality that defies logic, boggles the mind, and leaves even the strongest stomach nauseated and in shocked unbelief at its alteration.
Ours is not the first country leftism/socialism has taken such deep root. What makes the modern version such a foul development is its threatened conclusion: a mutation intensely horrid and deadly.
Anarcho-communism is a cruel, heartless alteration that deprives the worker the chance to recover even the feeblest remuneration for his labor. But regardless of the communist mutation taking place within the Democratic Party, its final result is clear.
Arising out of hallucinogenic political madness and social anarchy, the leftist/socialist progression is unchanged from its other variations. Cut out of the fabric of liberalism, a new vileness has emerged.
The leftist/socialist/democrat (LSD).
Analogous to the psychedelic experience steeped in illusion, the leftist/socialist/democrat of today is a champion and fanatical defender of an idealistic state that is not grounded in reality. Like a bad trip, the state is the omniscient lord of the working class and all compensation due the worker is surrendered to its intellectual governing body and into its insatiable coffers.
In the image of a terrifying creature out of a mind-altering experience, the leftist/socialist/democrat tirelessly labors, not for the worker, but for a heartless edifice that cares only for its own existence. Unlike Marxism, the anarcho-communist philosophy is not concerned with constructing a better way of life for the labor force, rather it demands only a better existence for itself, not permitting even the most basic proletarian vision to exist.
From out a heartless hallucination of Shangri-La take and seizure, the hoary apparition of a munificent, limitless reservoir of social tranquility is depicted. Only after much suffering and heartache is it discovered that no such reservoir exists.
In the end, the warped reality endlessly demands more and more and provides less and less to those who produce the goods and services.
What makes Gonzalez’s attack so appalling is that it reveals the profane motive of the modern leftist/socialist/democrat.
Hatred of white skin.
Racist to the core, the leftist/socialist/democrat not only hates white skin, he hates every facet of the USA because he associates it with white skin.
The delusions of the leftist/socialist/democrat are full of distortion, incessant hate, and unspeakable violence. As in other times in history, the emergence of the leftist/socialist/democrat is a horrid apparition and a dangerous manifestation. The fact that the objective is to establish first theory, then governance, of anarcho-communism increases the danger.
The popularity of Bernie Sanders, and his continued presence within American politics, should serve as a warning to all those who love our country and wish to hold on to the freedom it provides.
The emergence and acceptance of the modern leftist/socialist/democrat, hell-bent on ensconcing an anarcho-communistic regime, should energize all citizens, liberal and conservative, democrat and republican.
If we fail to take heed, our USA culture will serve as a bullet point historical reference upon anarcho-communism’s accession in the United States.Publius https://www.complex.com/life/2018/09/parkland-school-shooting-survivor-emma-gonzalez-calls-brett-kavanaugh-privileged-white-boy Photos: Dirk Spijkers, Doug Maloney, Samuel Zeller http://baltazarbolado.com On twitter: https://twitter.com/baltazar_bolado Author of: http://baltazarbolado.com/book/publius-liberatas-aut-mors/ http://baltazarbolado.com/book/paint-black/

Theory of Everything
One of the main reasons why I wrote Sword and The Pythia was to explain, using a fictional account, how the beast of Revelation will appear on earth and how Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
Additionally, the book’s plot deals with the areas of modern physics which have surfaced, or in some cases resurfaced, recently. One of these areas is referred to as “emergence theory.”
Since my teenage years, I have waited for science to have the courage to confront the issues that impact humanity the most. While science is still far away from embracing this notion, they are at least making progress and attempting to answer some of the serious questions of our time.
The leading proponents of emergence theory is a team of scientists in California who refer to themselves as Quantum Gravity Research.
Essentially, emergence theory is a unified first-principles quantum-gravity unification theory—the long-awaited promise by science on a theory of everything.
Emergence theory defines reality as a mosaic-like code or language at the smallest part of reality possible.
It is a definition I can agree with.
A Higher Consciousness
Back in high school, when I studied closed and open causal loops, multi-dimensional time and reality, determinism and non-determinism, consciousness, the golden ratio, light, infinity, and nothingness, science dismissed my conclusions.
Not only did I conclude the value of invisibility and divinity, but my findings left no question that determinism played a significant part in higher dimensional reality, even as non-determinism played a smaller part in lower dimensional reality.
All in all, science derided my findings, even as they derided the findings of their colleagues who dared to envision a universe that was infinite in nature.
Fast-forward to today and science is finally coming back around (backing up in reverse, essentially) and embracing much of my findings through emergence theory, and other theories, especially in the areas of QED and “fields.”
With respect to emergence theory, although science is closer to the truth than at any time in my life, science and I diverge in many critical areas.
the process of coming into view or becoming exposed after being concealed.
the process of coming into being
Emergence is derived from the Latin word emergere.
Emergere means to bring forth, bring onto light, to arise out or up, come forth, come up, come out, rise up.
Discarding string theory as a viable vehicle of uniting Einstein’s “Relativity” with Quantum Mechanics, thereafter providing an explanation of reality, the long-awaited “Theory of Everything” promised by Hawking but never envisioned, Quantum Gravity Research has embarked on a voyage that brings them a step closer to discovering the reality I exist in, and revealing the divine dimensions of a heavenly truth.
Quantum Gravity Research uses seven points of reference to attempt to discover and create a theory of everything.
2 causality loops
6 E8 Crystal
7 Golden Ratio
I agree with some of the findings of Quantum Gravity Research. I entirely disagree with others.
I will address each of the seven points of reference in forthcoming blogs, in the hopes that I can participate in Quantum Gravity Research’s ambitious enterprise.
It will be an exercise in learning, humility, innocent excitement, and childlike creativity. Beyond this, it will take maturity, and the desire to understand and touch wisdom, that will propel science toward a glorious step forward.
If science is not capable of such sagacity, then it will remain in darkness on many of the issues it wishes to explore and reveal. This has been its nature in the past. It is my hope that a new thought process has taken hold in science circles and a fresh dawn has cast-off the archaic methods and close-minded practices that have sheltered and blinded it for many generations.
This is a critical time for humanity. More than ever, civilization compels science to open its awareness to new technologies it has often disregarded or refused to recognize. It is the only way for it to advance and progress in a healthy dialogue.
It is time for science to learn a new language and communicate with a higher awareness.
It is my sole ambition to positively help to usher science into a revelation of breathtaking progress, and translate humanity into a higher consciousness and spiritual awakening.Pictures: Zoltan Tasi, Max Oh, David Clode, NASA http://baltazarbolado.com On twitter: https://twitter.com/baltazar_bolado Author of: http://baltazarbolado.com/book/publius-liberatas-aut-mors/ http://baltazarbolado.com/book/paint-black/

The Articles of Confederation
Revolution is a serious, often bloody, business.
In 1776, July 4th was not a time of festivities and celebrations. It was a time of fear and great struggle.
There is dread and awful trepidation when people stand at the crossroads between liberty and despotism and determine they will live or die to be free. It is terrifying when a people resolve that a rebellion is the only coarse for them to take to stop the decline of their freedom.
On July 4th, 1776, the Second Continental Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence.
The sacred document, fully drafted and edited by the “Committee of Five” at the Philadelphia print shop of John Dunlap, printed Thomas Jefferson’s memorable words—based in large part on the Virginia Declaration of Rights, drafted by George Mason and James Madison—and dispatched hundreds of copies across the 13 colonies to newspapers, administrators, even to the military commanders of the Continental Army.
History refers to these copies as the “Dunlap broadsides”, and immediately the words of war caused a riot to develop in New York, the one dissenting state to adopting the document.
As the words of war inflamed the countryside, the firestorms of Liberty’s breath ignited the souls of the public servants and inspired the Continental Congress to frame another document, the Articles of Confederation. With the Articles, the words of war of the Declaration of Independence took the form of the United States Confederacy.
It would take five years of blood and war before the Articles of Confederation would be ratified, yet, through the Confederacy, Congress conducted the Revolution.
Through the Confederacy, the thirteen colonies became thirteen independent sovereign powers delegating certain federal powers to the Confederacy.
Out of the Confederacy, The Republic of the United States of America was born.Civil War—Loyalists Versus the Patriots
After suffering through years of executive and judicial power abuse at the hands of the English Lords, the newly formed Citizens of the Republic were careful to strictly limit the power of the legislature.
Yet, a more pronounced distress lurked in the hearts and minds of the fresh and new citizens.
Their ideological antagonism and strife.
Liberty has watched over many civil wars.
It is the price of freedom that it breeds rivalry and clash.
So, during the specter of revolution against a mighty United Kingdom, a civil war ignited within the Confederacy.
The civil war between the Loyalists and the Patriots.
Because of fear, and many other reasons, the Loyalists believed that remaining loyal to the Crown was the best avenue for survival.
The Patriots did not agree. To them, bowing to any man, woman, or throne, was an affront to their right to exist as free people. Moreover, they dared to believe they were equals to a king.
After the war, John Adams estimated that 33% of the people favored independence, 33% opposed it, and the remaining 34% were either neutral, or had moral objections to the war.
It is logical to imagine the young Roman Republic, trembling in terror at the spectacle of warring against Hannibal’s diabolical cunning, and facing down extermination, also warring against themselves on how to conduct the war.
It is because of the fierce and violent flames that erupt from out of Liberty’s inferno that division so easily takes hold. Liberty is nothing more than a license to think individually, no matter what, and to question every idea, regardless who conceived it.United Storm
The Revolutionary War and the Punic Wars challenged Liberty, and each time, facing tremendous odds, Liberty prevailed.
But throughout the history of Liberty’s struggle to endure and tolerate the encumbrance of the oppressor, one element has remained.
In order to brave the monumental storms—internal and external—division has been the igniting fire of a free people.
Nevertheless, beneath the coals and embers of the fire of division, an even greater fire rages within the soul of the citizen of the Republic.
The fire of unity.
While freedom produces the courage to face up to the tyrant, it promotes an environment of contention and the flames of civil war.
In Publius: Libertas Aut Mors, a civil war between citizens is the central plot. The focus of the story’s conflict causes the lines to become blurred between protagonist and villain. All that remains are the apprehension and fear of citizens who believe they are fighting for the soul of a country they no longer can recognize.
If we are to remain divided by our ideologies and notions of governance, then so be it. It is our autonomous privilege.
However, if we are to brave the tempests that confront us, we must find a path within our hearts to bond and discover the unifying force that has always saved us in our darkest moments.
Only the magnificent creation of the Republic is able to protect and nurture Liberty’s flames of independence.
We are the lowly vessels who give life to this force and bring about its expression of freedom.
