On Sides, Lies and Jesus
We are divided into sides on a variety of issues. Under color-of-law, emergency rules are being handed down and a significant number of individuals in my locale are not going along. Others, across our nation are rioting and burning the cities down. These are all faces of anarchy.
Each side is passionate and feels justified in their position and views. The concept is well depicted in a series called Expanse. There are 3 sides, all human: Earth, Mars, Belters. Each side, presented from their own perspective, hates the others. There are no clear good guys or bad guys. What is there? War, millions dead and no saviors in a futuristic science-fiction world.
Here is what's real right now: There are dead people in the streets, between sides. Because the serpent lies.
And we do have a Savior.
