    When I really need to focus on core issues:

    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    and:


    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    If you stop and think about it, all those things we despise, Communism, Nazism, radical religion or what ever persuasion, all have one thing in common; they seek to usurp individual liberty. Who is the author of that idea? Be aware.

    But true liberty cant be won with worldly weapons, they only continue the cycle. True victory comes when we:

    13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
    14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
    15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
    16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
    17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
    18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

    Colossians 2:8 ESV​

    See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
