In a secular government of liberty and freedom, don't yield to the evil's subject and venue specific emotionalism, religious tenets of entitlements, compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, or larceny with impunity, but attack all such boldly.

"The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."---Edmund Burke. These truths have been repeated throughout history and we all know them, but we rarely put them to good use.

Stand strong and attack boldly.

E Archer, NYC

I prefer a more 'Kung Fu' approach which never attacks, skillfully avoids evil's attempted blows, and uses the enemy's force against himself. No initiation of violence nor taking of revenge.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

As the Apostle Paul expresses it, in Romans 12:21 -

"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

Our mandate is to assume the High Ground, in every sphere.
