Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

The Seventh Seal
"And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven" from The Revelation of St. John the Divine 8.1

I know that I have said this previously, but the propensity of the Universe to use Synchronicity to get my attention seems at times overwhelming.

For me this means a series of seeming less random, unconnected events which suddenly click into a new pattern in reality.

My latest journey of discovery started one night recently when I was doing a google search for an old post of mine. I find doing a search with keywords and the name of my site, easier than trying to remember when I wrote something and browsing through my last year of posting.

Much to my surprise I found my URL in a footnote of a pdf file on this website.

The Iran Policy Committee

I was a footnote in their latest White Paper

What Makes Tehran Tick?, 10 May, 2006, PDF

It would also appear this site is not composed of unemployed, unknowns sitting a computer, smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee, pounding on a computer in their pajamas.

The Iran Policy Committee is comprised of former officials from the White House, State Department, Pentagon, intelligence agencies, the Congress, as well as experts from think tanks and universities. The mission of the IPC is to educate the international community about the need to find an option for Iran between failing diplomacy and difficult military action against Iran-regime change in Tehran.

Needless to say I was flattered to be in such company. I did a bit of patting myself on the back the other day in, My own post here.

Post Press Conference Release: What Makes Tehran Tick?

I have been thinking about it off and on. I was not the author of the information, I merely had posted what I thought were important thoughts I found on an Iranian Blog, by someone who called himself Winsteed.

Iran Hopes

MY Post was merely a duplicate of his from Sunday, July 10, 2005

At this point in time what I think of the most is the last sentence or two from that article.

Let the regime be happy for the moment that it has silenced the people. But it is only silence before the storm.

For you see, Tuesday, October 04, 2005 is the last post on that website.

It is true Blogs come and go, people lose interest, they find other things they wish to do.

But we take much for granted here in the West, such as Freedom of Speech. We hear some talking glibly of
"Speaking Truth to Power" and they have NO idea what that means. They believe a reduction in CD sales makes them martyrs.

In Winsteed's World "Speaking Truth to Power" can have far serious consequences.

Maybe that was not such a good idea?

Last Sunday, agents of the State Security Forces opened fire on Shovan Qaderi and two of his friends in the town of Mahabad. The security forces then tied Qaderi?s body to a Toyota jeep and dragged him in the streets, according to eye-witnesses.

Since then, several hundred people in Mahabad have been arrested during numerous hit-and-run clashes and house-to-house raids.

Yes we take much for granted, but thanks to the miracle of the world wide web, my own small part and the White Paper of the Iran Policy Committee, the Mullahs did not totally silence this true Martyr to Liberty. His words, ideals, and dreams are preserved.

It was while I mused on these matters that the Cosmic Balance of Synchronicity struck me.

We have those who wish to silence us here too! They claim to have noble goals as well. I had just recently written about this.

When Will They Make Up Their Minds

John McCain
I would rather have a clean government than one where quote First Amendment rights are being respected,

Without the First (and Second) Amendments we will have neither Clean Government, nor Freedom of Speech.

But there lies the Synchronicity of the Universe, BOTH the Guardian Council and Senator McCain desire a Clean, more Moral Government and Society, though I will admit, so far Senator McCain has yet to expand his concepts to include a Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice

I will give the Devils their due, their goals are noble and lofty, they wish to protect the lumpen masses from having to make their own decisions. The goals of Marxist-Leninism were also lofty and noble and resulted in the extermination of over 100 million human beings.

But such concepts have no place in a Free Society and a man who espouses them is unfit to be nominated for the Presidency of the Unites States of America. He cannot fulfill his spoken wishes and at the same time uphold his

Senate Oath of Office

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Much less that of the Presidency. Some may think I exaggerate, I want them to look one more time at this and think long and hard upon what it means.

John McCain
I would rather have a clean government than one where quote First Amendment rights are being respected,

I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! Those words spoken by Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775. ring as true now as they did then, for some of us.

I say to Senator McCain Take your hands OFF the Seventh Seal!

The Gospel of St Johns is to some prophesy, I admit I took the phrase out of context as warning.

This does not make the warning untrue.
