Hate Conspiracy Theories? You'll Hate this Post

Ok ok....I don't indulge my affection for conspiracy theories too often....but this wee post i simply must write down.

I just want to write simply today....no metaphors, no dilly dallying around the subject.

Ok, ...here goes.

I want to encourage you to keep your book collections in tact. Don't throw out your paper form books, hard cover or soft cover or leather bound.....doesn't matter what format, but they must be in physical form.

Why am I saying this? Because I feel like the push for everything to be digitized is not as innocent as it appears. If all our reading is supposed to be on e-readers or ipads or laptops or phones, we are giving the "net" all access to record and analyze everything we read. If "they" can monitor everything we read, then they certainly can attempt to control everything we read. "They" will try to influence our world view and every other viewpoint according to whatever "they" are trying to achieve. "They" want to control how you think and what you think about, by controlling what you have access to. They want to control the books you read. The more that you do your reading "online" the more control you are giving to "them" to influence and dominate your reading.

Good books always prepare us to wage war with "sub par" lifestyles and ways of thinking. Good books energize holy "rebellion" against ungodly lifestyles. 

The past year of 2020 and the first month and a half of 2021 has shown us how quickly computer companies can just "erase" a person's voice on mass media. If "they" don't like your message, they can remove your ability to write words that other humans will read. They will "cancel" the ability of  someone "they" don't like, to speak and write on public forums, on all kinds of mass media. "They" will try to muffle your voice print in whatever way they can. The more we depend on electronic media for all the things we read and learn from, the more access we give to "the powers that be" to monitor, influence and ultimately control what we read and learn from.

That is why I feel I must write now to encourage you not to throw away your paper format books.
Try to maintain a family or personal library, with literal hands on paper and ink books. "They" can't get your books if you keep them alive by saving them in your private libraries. Don't fall prey to political correctness by burning your books. Let your personal libraries live long into the future. Keep them under lock and key if you need to. Some of you need to put your most important books into safes that are protected from water and fire damage.

In North America we are not at risk in a physical sense, but our minds are definitely at risk.
We are allowing all things electronic to control the formation of our mindsets. We are allowing mass media, social and otherwise, to attempt to control our own narratives. We must and are able to retain our narratives, but it will take effort on our part to do so. We protect our minds by protecting our words. Books are a very important piece of the puzzle. Please don't empty your home of books. Even if the books are old and dusty or the pages are worn from over use. Books are priceless treasures.

We must reclaim leadership in the formation of our own mindset as well as the growth of our children's minds. We must restore our love and respect for "self led learning". We must restore "in person" learning on all levels. Some courses should not be recorded for livestreams, or uploads. Some classes should be "old school" in person with no electronic devices permitted in the class room. 

Real learning has a high price. It takes effort. It takes the ability to sit and listen to the perspective and viewpoints of people that you may not agree with and be able to stay civilized and calm. It's about agreeing to disagree and giving one another the right to be heard.

We must restore the skill of "respectful and heated debate". A good argument is the hallmark of a vital and healthy learning environment. Great debates form great democratic societies. When public debates are dulled down into politically correct shams, we all lose out, because we aren't letting one another freely speak.

Ya'll have probably already figured out over the years, that I believe in the Bible.  I believe strongly that copies of the Bible must be preserved for the generations to come. We must not allow these strange forces of "censorship" to try to remove words or portions from our precious historic Bibles. That is why I encourage you strongly to hold onto the paper format copies of the holy bible that you may currently possess. There is nothing, in and of itself, wrong with using an online version of the Bible. However, I feel that we must be aware that anything on the internet can be "edited" and tampered with. If the Bible's words start offending the "powers that be" in North America, what would stop "them" from trying to 'remove' the words that "offend" from all online versions of the Bible? That is why you absolutely NEED to keep a literal copy of the holy Bible in a safe place in your possession.

Try not to just access the Bible from a computerized entry point. Keep a hard copy in black and white, on any kind of paper it is on.... Paperback is fine, hard cover is fine, as is leather bound.
We need to preserve the original versions, the good old fashioned reliable versions such as the King James Version of the holy Bible.

Well, that's all for now. I have spoken my peace.

Kindly,
Carla.

P.S. When you protect your books, you protect your mind.
