  3. I believe you are right, Carol. It is examples of peacefully, and yet sternly, withdrawing consent, like these two, that see to have the most profound effect on positive, permanent change, while political activism, within the corrupted system, and rioting on the outside, only lead to chaos and another form of the same monstrous government the people had just overthrown.

    That’s why I come to your blog, Carol, for wisdom, truth, love and hope!
