Divide and Conquer

 


In this strategy, the predator thinks that he is preying on his victims.


In actuality, he is getting off on destroying himself, his family, his country and humanity.  


How?


Let's take COVID-19 for example. 


The terrorist deliberately infects himself by not wearing a mask.  


Then he coughs, talks, sneezes his infected breath on everyone he comes in contact with, his family, his friends, his neighbors, his co-workers, the list goes on and on.


First this controversial, inconsiderate, immoral and unholy and unsafe strategy to divide and destroy in order to conquer by traitors, Judases and a certain most unholy foreign adversary, preys upon the predator.  


This strategy relies on the predator’s willingness to defy conventional wisdom and truths to intentionally infect as many people as possible.


In some cases delay medical treatment.


This immoral strategy also convinces some victims to not even seek medical treatment at all, causing covid deaths at home.  


The main problem- this divide and conquer strategy is deployed at home not abroad at some immoral adversary.  


"United we stand, divided we fall.”*


Another prime example is our politics turned “blood” sport.  


Politics is no longer a political discourse on policy.


Politics in some political circles is abuse of power incitements into fear, hate and divisions, often upon the most sensitive issues and the most vulnerable.  


We have become so divided in politics that some practice insurrection, sedition and treason.  


Another example is that our churches have fallen prey to the divide and conquer strategy where scripture is used to radicalize worship of some political leaders as idols and whitewash sins (“forgive and forget”) and bypass redemption.


These are just a few of the examples where the predator thinks he is conquering through division, but in reality he is weakening and destroying lives at home.  


Why?
