It has always been difficult to understand why folks don’t get more involved in issues that affect our country’s well-being. Edmund Burke, the 18th Century Irish orator, philosopher, and politician had this to say: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” That astute observation, made over 150 years ago, was true in his time and it’s certainly applicable today.
All too many of us complain about the evil in the world, but do very little to combat it. Evil, and its many faces, will spread when good people sit back and do no more than complain. Most of us simply don’t like to get involved in efforts to resist the evil doers. As a result, things can get to the point where it’s virtually impossible to stop the movement.
There are all sorts of examples of this sort of thing. Perhaps the failure of the many good people in Germany during the 1930s to stand up to Adolph Hitler is the best example. Admittedly, this is an extreme example, but it had a simple beginning. The evolution of Nazi Germany, with such things as the Holocaust and the movement by Hitler toward virtual world domination, resulted from the attitude of the German people and even others outside that country. Fortunately, people in Europe and around the world finally woke up to Hitler’s threat. Led by Great Brittan and the Untied States, an evil man was eventually stopped, but not before he had caused a tremendous amount of hurt and misery in a large part of the world.
My hope and prayer is that people all across the land will stand up to anybody or anything that threatens our country’s welfare. We simply can’t avoid getting involved in combating evil regardless of the source.
