Noble Metals: The Purifying Catalysts Restoring Truth
Noble metals don’t conjoin, corrupt or compromise.
In chemistry and in culture, the noble metals are those that do not alter their foundational virtues despite the environment in which they dwell.
The Noble metals, the virtuous aristocracy of the chemical world, don’t easily combine with other elements, or the latest matrix molecule.
One of the most notable features of the noble metals is their use in catalytic converters.
It is the noble metal of the catalytic converter that:
Catalyzes the conversion of Toxic molecules to harmless components,
Yet, noble metals themselves remain unchanged in the cleansing process.
Noble metals take toxic molecules and speed up the restorative process of purification to harmless components; but the noble metals conserve their own identities and do not change in the process.
Today, as in millennia past, the people that know their God are rising to the nobility of noble metals.
Edmund Burke (1729-1797) the anchoring force of conservative leadership in England, and John Adams (1735-1826) the anchoring conservative founding father of liberty under law in America, both recognized the need for a noble aristocracy in their nations~ if the rights that God grants were to be manifest for the many and the individual.
Burke and Adams realized, among the enlightenments of reason, revolution and humanist rebellion that all men were equal only under the laws of God. Any nation attempting to remove obedience to God as its foundation was sure to end in anarchy and tyranny.
All men are not created equal in size, stature, cognition, appearance, genetics, disposition, aptitude, nature or nurture; and to propose all men as equal, beyond equality before God’s moral and civil laws, was ignorant insanity sure to end in chaos.
Thus being noble men, Burke and Adams observed history and human nature through the lens of God’s established laws to ensure and promote the liberty of individuals. These wise men acted as noble metals to preserve, promote and defend their posterity and their nations’ futures against the rise of unbalanced mobs lead by bands of philosophers; Philosophers who were led, not by a love of God or His wisdom, but a licentious love of self. The humanists.
John Adams’ simple definition of an aristocrat:
“Is any person who can command two votes–his own, and another man’s.” *
“By aristocracy, I understand all those men who can command, influence, or procure more than the average of votes; by an aristocrat every many who can and will influence one man to vote besides himself.
Few men will deny that there is a natural aristocracy of virtues and talents in every nation and in every party, in every city and village.”
Like nearly every blessing of nature, aristocracy has both its vices and its virtues; it all depends on the worldview of the aristocrat as to how his or her influence will be directed.
Adams went on to clarify “…the happiness of man, as well as his dignity, consists in virtue.” as there can be no liberty where virtue is lacking.
This virtue must be both public and private virtue, and in order to secure this, an enduring republic must be based on a people who know the Author of the Golden rule.
“I would define liberty as a power to do as we would be done by.”
The life of Chuck Colson (1931-2012), a man who was converted from a toxic state to one of redemption, still testifies to the power and need for a noble aristocracy in our culture today.
In an article Chuck wrote for Ministry Today, entitled “Standing Up and Speaking Out”, he exhorted Christians to get out of the pews and once again act as Change Agents, just as Jesus did with his band of 12.
In his article, Chuck cites sociologist Robert Bellah’s research, in which Bellah states,”the quality of a culture may be changed when two (2) percent of its people have a new vision.”
Chuck also cited research from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI): “when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society.”
This 10 percent who hold unshakable belief, the Noble metals, can act as catalytic converters in the remainder of the population, because most people do not like to hold to unpopular opinions and are always seeking to reach a consensus.
(That’s what the progressive humanists have trained them to do via social emotional, behavioral conditioning…Marx, Engels, Bernays,Pavlov, Skinner, Dewey and Vygotsky in public education and media)
Liberty can only exist under the law.
To uphold the law that promotes liberty: a people must be governed internally by the One who established Law and Justice, Mercy and Truth.
For the Republic of The United States of America to continue, it must be led by A people of noble metal, whose purpose then and now is to act as the catalytic converters and preservers; the salt and the light; the people of God.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
In order to enjoy liberty in America, or anywhere around the globe, it will take the noble metals, the people of virtuous aristocracy, those that know their God; to stand firm, to hold their ground, display strength and to take action to make it so.
Are you a Noble metal?
A toxic molecule or a transition element?
Best check out where you stand on the periodic table of elements…and with The God that establishes the table of mankind, past, present and future.
“Where The Spirit of The LORD is there is Liberty”
2 Corinthians 3:17
And where He is not…there is humanism’s coercion, corruption, chaos and catastrophe…tyranny 101.
Noble metals include: Ruthenium, Osmium, Rhodium, Iridium, Palladium, and Platinum. These noble aristocrats are rare, costly, corrosion and wear resistant and are the friends of aristocratic authors. Several Noble metals are used for fountain pen nibs.
