How They Resisted Back Then

Suppose your country was stolen from you by a foreign country, much the way Europe was stolen by the Nazi's in WWII.

Now suppose that instead of Nazi's who stole your country, it was your own government.

Now suppose you weren't going to sit by idly and let that happen.

How are you going to fight against that?

Meet Max Manus, famous for being one of the most brilliant saboteurs during World War II.

First Lieutenant Max Manus - pioneer of the Norwegian resistance movement

Max wanted his country back from the Nazi's. He did something about it. He risked life and limb to get it back many times, against all odds. He did not give up.

What's this got to do with anything? Learn from the past. There may/will be a time when you will have to make the decision to resist. If you have Netflix, put Max Manus on your instant queue and watch it. There are lessons to be learned and applied.

And while you're at it, watch the movie Flame & Citron. Same war, same type of resistance, different country, same lessons to be learned.

If you're not thinking along these lines yet, you better start doing your mental exercises.
