Where are the visionaries to defeat tyranny?

There can be no doubt that we are ruled by a sociopath, a lethal megalomaniac.

The air is full of condemnation,  Yet, how much serious contemplation and calling are there for the angry populace to cry out “Enough tyranny talk!  What can we do to nullify this toxicity before it destroys us?  How do we muster the will to rise up in righteous indignation and stop this evil in its tracks?”

We have in US overthrown the evil designs of evil people by the rising up of indignant masses, not by physical violence, but by passion so strong that it cannot be ignored.  In the last decades we have sparked the rise of civil rights to defeat racist bigots and misanthropes in our Homeland and called the halt to a vicious war in Far East Asia.  Just a couple of examples of the wonders that can be achieved by masses of right-minded people.

The quest must start by identifying a visionary, articulate voice that calls charismatically to decency and honor, framed by motivation of the hoi polloi.  Where is that visionary, charismatic leader to muster us to action?

Now, get off your behinds and take action, whatever it might be, to defeat the maniacs who forcefully mislead us!  Protest!   Write letters to the decision-makers!  Beat on the doors of legislature!  March on Washington and Mar-a-Lago!   Shout so loud that the media, local and national, cannot ignore us.

I for one have featured myself as having talent at mustering the muster-able.  The record will show that I have had considerable success at that calling.  But, I still live with no delusion that so, so much work still must be done. Each to his/her own special gift and strength:  Habitat for Humanity.  American Red Cross.  Children’s Cancer Society.  Everything that leaves a taste of altruism in the conscience.

So where is the next MLK?  The next JFK?  The next McCain?  The next  Justice Thurgood Marshall?  Surely our post-greatest generation can put forth even one compelling individual to galvanize the energy of the masses to take action.

Detractors will likely call me just an aged-out hippie casting a longing eye the sixties.  They will try to outshout with “Your vision is no better than ours!  Your pining for an outlived reality is un-reality!”

No!  Do not let them discourage or detract you!  Action, my friends!  Now, who among us will muster the masses to an uprising of positive initiative, through leadership of irresistible, charismatic cry?

Will we then defeat the megalomaniacs and their minions from their terror and free us to resume building the Land of the Free?
