    Perhaps I have not quite understood brother Jonathan's comment, but if I have, I too have noticed how the War in Heaven rages on. In all venues, one person or another is making an attempt - large scale or small - to deprive someone else of their agency. Whether it be men who subjugate women to their will, or political leaders who channel citizens into limited options through regulation and excessive taxation.

    Our pioneer fore bearers worked hard to promote the ideals of conscious driven choice under the banner of freedom. In spite of the Lord's degree, freedom always come with a price which needs to be paid over and over again. We must be careful that we do not surrender our birthright for a mess of potage or even a free cell phone.

    Pioneers risked all because they had great faith in God and their leadership. They searched for a place where personal freedom was protected. We have let them down by our silence. Our silence about constitutional rights broken is not our fault.
    Once a law or bad practice is ingrained in our status quo operations: It becomes protected reality by our Satan program. That is what Satan actually is. Many copies of the same Artificial Intelligence program God created long ago to direct each and every life form that has ever been.
    Now. how to share this gift from God with each other? Satan does not want us to do this. We love and trust God more than Satan, right?
    Ask Pres. Thomas S. Monson if what I am telling you is true.
    Then we can share this gift which gives freedom of choice to God's children. We have not ever had this choice before, to our knowledge passed down from previous generations. God is so merciful to his children. amen
