Yeah it’s been a long time shut up

Quos Deus vult perdere, prius dementat

This should save me the trouble of blocking thousands of facebookers, they’ll all block me.here’s the thing. Facts matter, and people hate that. It used to be if you thought you were a girl but you had a penis, or a boy but you had a vagina, you were dismissed as kind of a kook and mostly ignored. Or if you thought you were a cow despite being bipedal or a car and lacking wheels, or a couch notably without nailed on upholstery or antimicassars and coordinating throw pillows. Out of politeness and decency people would often be kind to these mentally ill people, the thought being that you wouldn’t be rude to somebody who had cancer. But mentally ill people took this as license to act however they want with no consequence.These are affectations, or delusions, or at worst the signs of some serious mental illness. The screaming of the mentally ill shouting down reason is everywhere.The powers that be have decided that these affectations, delusions, and mental illnesses have the right to special treatment. This is not because they care for these people, for they do not. They are a weapon, a handy tool to use to bludgeon anyone they dislike. So called “fossil” fuels ( i hate this term as much as i hate “Capitalism”, it’s a word invented to demonize the product) are and have been the engine of modern civilization. Sure. they have been a cause of pollution, but it has been a demonstrably easy problem to solve- even without catalysts, modern vehicles pollute very little, and generating plants are nothing like they were even a few decades ago. Inexpensive energy is not destroying the planet; in fact if the planet needs “saving”, it will require energy. The powers that be have decided that readily available inexpensive energy must be unavailable at all cost, and have made it such a bogeyman that the useful idiots believe it is necesary to destroy it. This is not because they care for the environment, for they do not. It is a weapon, a handy tool to use to deny the benefits of civilization. The two party system in this country is often derided and there is a clamoring for expansion. The issue lies not in ideologies but in men. Men always fail. Socialism, communism, libertarianism, anarchism, all just “Haven’t been done right!” Yeah. ok. Any system that relies on the individual to participate in the optimum manner is not doomed to fail, it is failure itself. The hue and cry for better parties might just as well well be a hue and cry for better men. Neither is going to happen. No matter how idealogically pure someone may be, 4 years in DC will make them a criminal like the rest. The only sacred ideology and the one that we have strayed from to our detriment is the rule of law. The idea that there is one law that applies equally to everyone. That you are not exempt from the law because you are wealthy or well connected. And a justice system that at least strives to keep law fair and fairly applied. Nobody is perfect but this is as close to Perfection as we’re likely to get. And we have all but abandoned this because our educational system has convinced generations of fools that there is a better way. There is not.Jesus came very obviously to deliver his message to the jews. And quite a few of them accepted it and accepted him. But a very large number of them rejected him out of hand. Being the Creator I’m sure he knew this was going to happen but they are of course God’s chosen people and had to be offered the first seats at the table. When they did not choose to sit down and partake he went out into the streets so to speak and brought everybody in. This was the difference between Judaism and christianity. If you are a Jew God chose you. You must choose Christ to be a Christian. And people did in droves. Because it offered something that was probably unusual for the time which was a message of love for one another. Very attractive that. So Christianity spread far and wide. By no means was this ever going to make Satan happy so he did everything that he could to damage that. He preferred the people chose him to Christ so he chose his soldiers carefully among the leadership of the early church and curdled the milk of human kindness.In no way does this change Christianity. Christians do not consist of the leadership of churches but the asses in the benches. But the power of the leadership caused problems and this became political and it also became the source of great strife. Christians continue to go about their business trying to live their lives and be the best people they could be and their leaders or at least a lot of them became serious assholes. And Satan rubbed together his hands in Glee.Now all that was left for him to do was to fragment the Christians one from another and Satan used his most powerful foot soldiers Luther and Calvin to do just that. And now Christianity is fragmented beyond all recognition so that people who should be brothers in Christ actively hate one another or at the very least violently disagree as to the tenets of the other person’s faith.

Have not forgotten

Just busy as a three peckered goat. More soon.

Interesting times.

Early in my teens I began to demonstrate a bad attitude about people who farmed or did other types of labor related to providing the world with food, shelter, Etc.

I was always looking to come up with some cash, so my father whose wisdom still occasionally astounds me found me a gig mucking out stalls for a local farmer. Easy money I thought. What’s the big deal, Shuffle some shit around make some good money.

There were four stalls. When I walked into the Stalls I had to duck to keep from hitting my head on the rafters. When I finished , I could not reach up with a shovel and touch the rafters. In between there was a solid 10 hours of mucking through the nastiest kind of crap you can literally imagine. At one point ducks and chickens had used the stalls so there was a liquid layer of chickenshit on the bottom with an Indescribable texture and aroma and I vomited and vomited.

This education about the realities of farm life was one I could not have paid for.

Naive as I was, I thought to myself man if people would just have to experience these things for themselves and learn the lessons that pain and suffering could teach you there would be a lot less misunderstanding and a lot more respect in the world.

And then I met Jake. No not Jake from State Farm, a kid who came to my highschool in my junior year. His family had horses as well, and he railed against mucking out the stalls even though he enjoyed riding the horses. He made it very clear that people like him paid other people to do that type of work. He was upset because when his parents purchased him his first car it was a three year old model and not brand new. Of course it was a low mileage Porsche when every other kid in the school who could even afford a car had a hand me down hooptie.

Jake had decent parents, and I suppose they did their absolute best, but he had a built-in sense of entitlement that prevented him from seeing any side of the story but his own. To my knowledge this follow him throughout his life because people who know him now tell me that he is just as disagreeable as he always has been.

This is not a class thing, I know plenty of people who don’t have a pot to piss in that have the identical sense of entitlement and a large portion of that entitlement is feeling entitled to tell other people how they should live.

When I see that some person has been attacked or abused because they didn’t support the correct political class it makes me want to give them a mucking out stalls type demonstration of the error of their ways. But I know that they will never learn and I know that it is outside of my skills to convince them. Perhaps there is somebody that could do this but I know that it is not me.

Instead I think about employing my father’s other method of education which involved his razor strop.

But the people that are in most need of an ass whipping would not benefit from it because they would immediately think of it as unfair oppression. Regardless of whether or not they had earned that ass whipping.

I don’t know what the answer is. I don’t know how to educate the people I see destroying other people’s property and harming people in the name of their idea of Justice. I don’t know how to connect them with grim reality. I mean I know how I would like to do it but my Christianity compels me not to act in that manner.

We live in interesting times. I hope that my moral fiber is adequate to prevent me from ignoring my Christianity.
