The Left wants you discouraged and supine. THAT is their strategy. They want you to give up. They want you to just give in and, Saruman-like, “make deals” with them. They tout the “wisdom” of giving up. It makes it easier for them to obtain their goals. They deal in the currency of despair and discouragement.
But don’t give in to despair. Don’t you give up!
But the way to resist the Lefty Orcs is to not be discouraged and inert, to not give up hope. The challenge is to continue on–with optimism. Optimism is the antidote to the discouragement-inducing Lefty despair that is all around us. And optimism takes effort. Optimism is a choice. It IS resistance!
Frodo: I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
No wonder Lefties HATE The Lord Of The Rings! Cuts pretty dang close to the bone for them! The minions of Sauron, the forces of darkness have always fought against the light, against Gandalf and those who fight for freedom. And while Orcs are fictional, the Left sure isn’t!
So yes, WE have to decide what is right and wrong, good and bad… And, like Saruman, some we didn’t expect will desert and will fall. And it will be heart-breaking. But even so, we have to decide what to do with the time that is given to us.
Have courage, my friend!
