There is a spirit at work in this world made manifest by a range of current observable often irrational phenomena not immediately traceable to the source. Those responsible desire to hide their role by slowly taking away freedom lest they be opposed. Diminished freedom of speech has led to resignation and feelings of helplessness. Although most are not aware, we must be mindful of the spirit that controls the thinking and behavior of the masses. God commands us to serve as watchmen and Jesus Christ warns us to discern the times.
