#1 Good. Trump can campaign on "You want this to stop? Vote Trump."

#3 Globalism. They will not stop until they conquer every country. This means Venezuela, Iran, Russia (yes a land invasion) and finally China. Once that's done, they dismantle the United States of America to serve as a nucleus for a global governance.

And then that's it. Tyranny, inescapable, forever. The global governance will have the resources of the entire planet at its disposal and will be able to crush any rebellions. The role of the former territory of the USA will be to serve as a cash cow for the rest of the planet. Doubtless they will mismanage things a bit and plunge our once-productive territory into grinding poverty. Eh, doesn't matter, as long as they can extract what they need. Think of us as a herd of farm animals under a neglectful farmer.

#4 Not good. However, the stat I saw said that for 4,000 years, (with those parts keeping records) there have only been less than 200 years of peace in the world. Si vis pacem, para bellum. Just be judicious in choosing what hill you want to die on.

#5 There is a prayer that asks for the courage to act to make the world a better place AND "...the wisdom to know the difference between what I can and can not do". Sometimes the best action is to not intervene because you will only make the situation worse.

#6 The Serenity Prayer, magpie? Here is Wikipedia’s take:

The Serenity Prayer is a prayer written by the American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr[1][2] (1892–1971). It is commonly quoted as:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference.[1]

Niebuhr's prayer originally asked for courage first, and specifically for changing things that must be changed, not things that simply can be changed:

Father, give us courage to change what must be altered, serenity to accept what cannot be helped, and the insight to know the one from the other.[3]

Niebuhr composed the prayer in 1932-33.

#8 I had it tacked over my bed in the dorm, magpie, instead of the hot movie star of the day. But today I learnt the history of it, and so am richer thanks to your question. :-)

#10 Funny how the Dems & GOP can be best buddies at times like these.
