I’ve largely checked out of politics, and as a result my Twitter use has dropped dramatically.

I’ll keep an eye on politics to position myself in case there are immediate threats, etc.

But the battle, for me anyway, is cultural and spiritual.

My focus will remain there.
Fighting a political battle when the culture has already been taken by the enemy will end up in a few short term victories and many many losses.

I’ve literally had to seek residence in another country in order to continue following my creative plans.
The struggle is asymmetrical and we are fighting from a position of weakness.

But, we’re also more nimble to exploit advantages, if we but understand our position. Many don’t.

It’s okay. Long haul.
The new adjustment has been hard but also miraculous. My eye is on the future.

If politics is your calling, may God bless you with wisdom + a spirit of courage.

Just know, some things will happen that must happen.

May we carve out little pockets freedom in a world of tyranny.
I should add

While freedom is a worthy cause, because we should take care of our own (Timothy 5:8)...

...Paul wrote some of his best epistles from prison.

(this is more bAsEd than it appears)
