Persuasive Powers

I remain both surprised and alarmed when revolutionary entrepreneurs, AltRight survivalists, poor and terrified AfricanAmerican and Hispanic young adult U.S. males, and females, and the National Rifle Association vociferously agree with Chairman Mao "Power is found at the end of a gun." While alarmed because violence breeds further mindless violence, I continue to be surprised because even a child could notice Power originates from Earth's revolving and enlightening relationship to the Sun. All other points of origin are secondary, derivative, and perhaps not to be made too anthro-centrically much of.
