Analysis of the consequences of a decision – not just on something involving yourself, but where others are vulnerable – is not a “he who hesitates is lost” proposition. It could be more along the lines of “look before you leap,” for he who leaps before he looks is more likely to experience loss than the one who hesitates long enough to WISELY assess something, especially where others are deeply concerned and involved. We live in a self preening, ego driven world where too many people sing in the key of me. There are even some “Christian” religions that also encourage this kind of mindset, with their bless me club mentality. Where there’s a demand for ear tickling, there will be suppliers. It’s the nature of the beast. But at some point, there is going to be an accounting. This is a form of spiritual roulette: just because the m.o. has worked in the past, and you’ve been bailed out before does not mean it’s going to work forever. The odds are less and less in your favor. If this shoe fits, wear it. And be forewarned.
Has it entered the general consciousness yet that our planet is and has been run by a cabal of basically psychopathic personalities? Ever wonder how that happened?
Sometimes it's best not to read "signs" into everything. Goodness knows that things are complex, convoluted, and corrupt enough as documented fact these days, without reading something into it every time the wind blows, or you see a crow sitting on a fence where you never saw it before, or just because you "notice" something that maybe you just simply never noticed before. While I do believe conspiracy exists (there's been one for about 6000 years now since mankind was drawn into the Luciferian rebellion), my opinion is that we can save ourselves a lot of grief by not looking for trouble where there is none. Examine your motives and your information. You save yourself a lot of grief with not getting all your exercise by stretching your imagination and jumping to conclusions.
We are created in the image of God. We are deeply, divinely loved and precious to Him beyond imagining. We are also a race fallen from His grace, due to being coerced into complicity with rebellion, resulting spiritually in captivity to the arch enemy of God. But we have been redeemed and have the opportunity to be restored in full! All who receive Christ receive the power to become the sons of God (Jn 1:12) The question then is, where to from here? Self will, or God's will which is this amazing plan of redemption, salvation, and restoration?

Life is like a washing machine.
It's the agitation
that brings the dirt to the surface.
