From the book: No Fake News but Plenty of Hogwash
They had a barn fire in Russia in the dead of winter – isn’t it always winter over there? – and firefighters saved 150 pigs. Find it online. Watch the firefighers joyously tossing piglets to each other in a bucket pig brigade. See? They rescue piglets over there just like we would rescue them here. Focus on the people, not the governments.
All the government wants is to maintain public order, and there are different ideas about how to do that. While they’re at it they preserve their own interest. But people do that everywhere. The Bible used the metaphor of the heavens to represent ancient governments. The heavens would drench you with rain, scorch you will sun, freeze you will sleet, and there wasn’t a thing you could do about. It is not so different today.
