When the tables turned at Gettysburg the SECOND TIME it was more righteous than the first. The tables turning at Gettysburg the first time could have been interpreted as MIGHT MAKES RIGHT. But the second time the tables turned it was TRUTH that counted. The success of our civilisation depends on how far along the spectrum we are between MIGHT-MAKES-RIGHT ….and …. TRUTH MAKES RIGHT.
Might sometimes indeed makes right when there are time constraints involved (as there always are). So we are not talking here in absolutist terms. But to get beyond tribal or kleptocratic levels of development we need to work hard towards TRUTH MAKES RIGHT.
Though I am ambivalent towards the first Gettysburg victory there is no holding back with todays Gettyburg triumph. Everyone who can make a credible psychic connection to Gettysburg right now ought to be glowing with pride. My pride is big enough to share in this and after all I see the same sun and the same moon as the people in Gettysburg. Its a proud day for Gettysburg right this moment. I am jumping up and down on chairs right now and stroking my whiskers. After all our greatest recent musician said that the “Arms Of Orion Holds Us Both Together” and so we are all connected by the aether that these oligarchs denied.
I can see why people share a lot of love to do with the first battle of Gettysburg. But this second Gettysburg triumph forms a more perfect victory.
