This wide body jetliner is the Douglas DC-10-10 N220AU Serial Number 46501. She wears the markings Orbis International circa 2016 at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona. This is a 50-year old design. Douglas intended for these aircraft to cross oceans safely.
These wide body jets symbolize a universal desire for man to move – to freely travel, to explore, to learn, to survey. A traveler may want to see an old friend, connect with a family he has never met, see a place he has only read about or play the part of a pilgrim to seek a closer union with God. The book of Genesis Chapter 2 verse 20 reads: "man gave names to all the cattle, all the birds of the air, and all the wild animals." God conferred on to Adam a viceroyalty in dominion over the earth. In our lordship, for over five decades, we have climbed into these hulking beasts and through the mysteries of science and engineering, we have bent the natural confines of space and time to our will to travel and to have what we want taken directly to us. We have taken this right for granted. His desire to go only is the sole constraint the modern man's freedom of movement.
The hysteria surrounding our national emergency in this country has subsided. The onerous hand of government remains. Our freedom to assemble and freedom of movement once enshrined in our Constitution have proved, as James Madison predicted, to be little more than parchment protection from the tyranny of lesser men. Today’s technocrats lack the glamour of Nazi brutes or Stalin’s futurists. Prisoners in our own home, our cross is the algorithm of no.
And yet, as we see these fuselages as freedom, another culture whose pledge of allegiance is to alternative Christ sees these talismans with other eyes. Transnational crimes walks hand in hand with globalism.
