All For the Want of a Nail


For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

This proverb has been on my mind a lot lately, especially when I hear people complain that they are only one person and, as such, cannot make a difference in the battle for freedom. In truth, every action, every effort, every sacrifice, no matter how small, adds power to the total force, and we never know in advance if any particular one will be decisive.

I mention this because reaching out to one person, although seemingly unimportant by itself, could be the decisive act in our movement. We never know if that person will become a freedom dynamo and a catalyst for activating thousands or even millions of their countrymen.

 And that leads me to the purpose of this message. We need to reach out to more people and do it quickly. We need to light thousands of new candles every day. Even though we know that most of them will remain as single points of light (which is excellent by itself and essential for our goal), we also know that some of them will become virtual torches and start wildfires of enlightenment.

Fortunately, we have the tool to reach those people, and it's already in your tool box. Unfiltered News is aimed at those who know they are not getting the whole truth from the major media, are indignant over corruption in high places, and want to get government off their backs. Admittedly, the majority of the population may not fit that profile, but a sufficiently large segment does, and the leaders we seek will come from those ranks.
