Manifest Destiny

The manifest destiny of America was supposed to be the domination and exploitation of those peoples who just happened to be here first. The Indian tribes who decided to try to get along with the pilgrims from across the big pond that was the Atlantic ocean who were looking for a better life in a strange land among those peoples who were considered heathens or at least savages to be pacified by the word of a Christan God for their eternal salvation. That got our foot in the door to the new world. Those who will survive the turbulent times of the future will be the benefactors of the modern manifest destiny of our culture moving forward.

There is now a new group of people looking for a new destiny of hope for a better future for themselves and most importantly their children. Manifest Destiny meant that whatever happened to one in the pursuit of the opportunities and pleasures of life is there for the taking if one is willing to do what is needed to achieve one’s personal desires.

America is now on a course where diversity is the reality of our society going forward. The old paradigm of black versus white on the race card is just about played out. Our new destiny is to at least try to understand and accept those who for one reason or another we consider “different” that is the challenge we will all face to make our country and the world we live in a better place for ourselves and the future generations that will follow our lead. We as citizens of a global world can and will do better than those who came before us. That is our moral duty as human beings. If not we all suffer the consequences of a society in decline.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
