Opening Insights: The Great Experiment is Failing
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity.
The Great Experiment that is the United States of America is failing. Benjamin Franklin once said, "A Republic... if you can keep it." Our forefathers knew they were taking a risk by establishing the United States of America as a Republic, and at a few years shy of a quarter century, it looks like their concerns are well-founded.
American leaders are beginning to wake up to the reality of the terrible danger our country is in of ceasing to exist. Those who wish to preserve America and the foundation principles that it was built on have been stripped of the publicly offered means by which to pass on the knowledge of our founding fathers and the constitution.
Public education and universities have become "liberal indoctrination camps" where it is more important to celebrate the racial and ethnic origins and differences of your ancestors than it is to celebrate what unifies us today in what used to be the greatest nation on Earth. Rather than promoting strength of unity, students are being conditioned to highlight the differences of race, gender identity, sexual preference and more to further widen the divide between those that look and think different.
It is now an act of racism and extremism to speak about the founding principles of America and its Judeo-Christian roots. Free speech is dying at breakneck speed and the Constitution is in danger of being rewritten to support the ideals of those who wish to erase America's history.
What can be done to halt the seemingly unstoppable destruction from within of what used to be the strongest nation in the world?
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
While most news organizations and tech giants are pushing the narrative which will lead to the destruction of America (as we knew her), small groups are coming together to bring attention to what is happening and to offer a tried and true solution.
One such group is strategically positioned within one of world's largest Christian higher education institutions, Liberty University. At Liberty, they know that building the strength of the community through education is one of the best ways to preserve a nation of the people, by the people and for the people.

The new Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty was founded to 'play offense' against secularism
Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk and Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. have teamed up to launch a new think tank, the Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty, to "play offense" against attacks on Judeo-Christian principles and Constitutional liberties.
What are the details?
The Falkirk Center is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Liberty University, and its mission is "to equip courageous champions to proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ, to advance his kingdom and American freedom."
Falwell said in a press release ahead of its launch, "As attacks on traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs grow in frequency and intensity, the need has never been greater for a national revival of our foundational principles throughout our society and institutions in America." He added, "We are delighted that Liberty University can play a part in this mission for Christ and American ideals."
"It's sort of sad that we have to do something like this," Falwell later told Fox & Friends. "It's just to provide basic education on American history, because so many universities have become liberal indoctrination camps, and the public schools have not taught U.S. history in so long, and young people don't understand that the whole idea of the American experiment was based on the Judeo-Christian ethic."
Kirk explained to the Washington Examiner, "We're in a cultural battle right now where you have to fight and play offense, and part of this effort is to try and play offense against the secular left."
The Turning Point USA founder also told the outlet that the Falkirk Center hopes to answer a question he frequently gets: "Was Jesus Christ a socialist?"
In an op-ed published in the Daily Caller announcing the think tank's launch, Kirk and Falwell argued that the organization "is the answer to America's culture war."
"The Falkirk Center will be on the frontlines of this war," the co-founders wrote, "and we believe, like the passionate freedom fighters that courageously charged into the breach before us, we will eventually see victory."

Possibilities for Consideration: Building Strength of Community Unity
Organizations like the Falkirk Center are positioned to do some real good in our country in the only way that makes any difference; through the education and empowerment of the community. Given the right partnerships and outreach multipliers, the Falkirk model could be built upon to reach a more diverse audience.
The AwareComm® Collaboration Laboratory (Co-Lab™) is purpose-built to amplify the passion, purpose, skill and wisdom of its participants through the synergistic effect of principle based collaboration. It partners with businesses, organizations and schools to promote strength of community unity founded in responsible application of technology, methodology, human understanding and data science.
AwareComm® is focused on building the strength of organizations with an existing social cultural responsible mission and direction, uniting them with a shared social culturally responsible focus. A stronger community will mean more and better jobs, safer neighborhoods and better Americans.
AwareComm® is positioned to partner with institutes of higher learning to create foundational hubs for Christian leadership and community development. A marriage is appearing, bringing together a Co-Lab™, an education institution and local business. This unified effort will result in, among other things, rehabilitation of America's Forgotten People, while reuniting them with their spouses and children.
Inmates who have completed their sentences and left prison to reintegrate into society have an overwhelming challenge of undoing their institutionalization. This proposed Co-Lab™ will enjoy a peer direction using the models developed by AwareComm's work with Christian organizations in Africa, and will:
- Promote universal principles and models for thinking and behavior
- Reconstruct the family unit (functional family)
- Provide job training (subsistence)
The miracle now transpiring is that two Christian churches in two different places in the world will be able to share resources in a collaborative effort to address and solve key global problems. They'll combine through a community partnership process that leverages the AwareComm's platform and proprietary learning technology and methodology to foster spiritual thinking and spirituality driving Adaptive Intelligence (AdI™).

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Being willing is not enough; we must do.
