The Enemy Of All Free Men

When Jerry Hughes spoke in Kansas City a few years ago he read one of his poems. I'd like to share it with you because of my answer to the 3/12/06 Question Of The Week.

Apathy-The Enemy Of All Free Men

I am your enemy, your nightmare and your destruction.

I am more powerful than the combined militaries of the world.

I have destroyed more men than all the wars of all nations combined.

I massacre millions of people each and every generation.

I have wrecked more homes than all other causes known to you.

I cause the downfall of the greatest civilizations in history.

I spare no one.

My victims are rich and poor, young and old, strong and weak.

I do not respect color nor creed.

Children shall know me in their eternal sorrow.

I cast my shadow over every thought of man.

I hide in unseen places and I go about my work silently.

You have been warned of my presence, but you do not listen.

I never sleep and I am everywhere you are.

You can not hide.

Illness, revulsion, disease and death follow me and are my friends.

I will give you nothing.

I will take everything you have and then seek more.

I will cause you to turn away from all you once believed in.

I will blind your eyes to the sins of your elected leaders.

I go where my master orders.

The Prince of Darkness alone sends me into your life.

Once allowed inside, seldom am I ask to leave.

America, won't you please allow me to enter and give me rest.

I will remove all your worries and concerns.

I will take away any concern for individual responsibility.

I will bring you bliss.

I am your friend.

I am Apathy.

I thought that was a very good way to explain one of the biggest threats to our freedom and liberty. Jerry does a three hour Internet broadcast every week day starting at 1:PM (cst). If your interested you can hear him at Accent Radio Network. I think you will find it worth your time.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
