Someone Must Say Stop

Sometimes it is easier to share an anecdote to explain a complex concept than to give what makes me feel is a lecture. My problems with changing the fuel pump on my 1972 pickup truck can explain why the plan for the international government has not yet started to become a reality.

When you have a crisis situation, it can be compared to a large black cloud, and when someone sees it looming on the horizon and comes up with a plan, unless someone says "Stop," that person can drive right through the cloud and the plan is never created.

I used to take an elderly woman for occasional rides in her truck, and when she passed away, she left it to me in her will. It had sat in her garage for many years. When I inherited it and started to drive it more frequently, the truck ran well at first, but then it started to die at stop lights. I tried to figure out what the problem was, and decided it must be the fuel pump.  When I tried to remove it, one of the fuel lines was impossible to detach from the pump, so I removed both pump and line simultaneously.

I have a catalog for a classic auto parts store, but it doesn't stock that particular model of fuel pump, so I went to the local auto parts store and bought a new pump, and just bought the line online. When I put them both on the truck, they didn't match. The old line was a homemade copper tube that had been bent to fit. I was advised to just get another copper tube and the right tools and make a new one. Another man recommended I take the old pipe to a man down the street who could take the two apart. Another man suggested cutting the old pipe and splicing it with a piece of rubber hose, but another man said it could catch on fire if the splice came apart. My thought was, why would I have to do any of those things? Why couldn't I just find the right parts? There had to be a solution. The manufacturer didn't design it with bend copper tubes.

I could have driven right through the "dark cloud" of the problem, but instead I searched for the right pump online on the pump manufacturer's website and at the auto parts store, and found the model that was meant to fit that truck, and then informed the auto parts store and the online auto parts store about the misunderstanding.

For many years, truck owners had been bending copper tubes to fit. If the pump and line had separated easily, I would have bought the wrong size pump, but that was the point where I had to say Stop.

I have been working to introduce the plan for the international government, and the black cloud that is based on misunderstandings and past errors keeps getting larger and drawing in more people. It takes someone to say stop to make everyone realize that what is happening now makes no sense. Why should we have to put up with what is going on?

Then, which plan will it be? A viable solution must already be in existence. I personally couldn't manufacture a new pump and line to fit.

There are many people in the world who are making do with what is going on in the world and who still support the existing structure, with all the errors and misunderstandings. There are people who have no problems with coming up with quick fixes and are willing to take the risks. In regards to the problems we are facing as a planet, who will go searching for the right solution, the one the manufacturers meant to be the right fit so everything runs smoothly?
