Of the United States our national bird is the Bald Eagle. The eagle has the capability to soar to any height and fly on any vector it needs to in order to accomplish its goal. The only things that would hinder it would be itself or an unjust hunter. The eagle is also a symbol of freedom and we too need to be such as the eagle. We need to break off the bands of ideologies, games, and conventional wisdom that might bind us by using every available and credible resource in which we have. This includes our common sense and mind. On the other hand, is the owl which is the symbol of conventional wisdom, evil ideologies, and as the Bible explains, that “whore that sat upon many waters.” In the Bible of Revelation chapter seventeen verse one it states “the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.”
The owl, today is political, dwells in the forest and seeks to turn every creature in it into a mouse or rabbit. The owl never soars to the heights the eagle does and loves to keep other owls and animals down in the forest on its level. Thoreau describes these political owls as “any man more right than his neighbors constitutes a majority of one already.” There are many of these types of political owls that are similar to this and it bespeaks of pure pride. Men and women are taken to this level when they accept conventional wisdom, give up their freedom by playing games, and let their feelings control and morph them into mindless followers. When this happens and they have found their selves transformed into this state it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. The political owls and others like it of this modern world have created a pseudo government whereby they can “pay to play”. The necessary action to take is self-evident in this case.
