Shills are, to me, modern tools of ‘Inquisition’.
The false literal God/Government of the Roman Empires’ making, used then to quell the growing dangers to The Empire of freedom of thought, which came out of The Temples, has twisted and turned into Government/God. If they are paid, fair enough, those, on line, battles just help us to sharpen our own thoughts and arguments but worse surely are those who truly believe in the false God/Government or Government/God and often in the USA it is both, when not ‘they’ often have the remnants of a discarded religion, never having followed their questioning to any constructive end or rather new beginning.
Dare to question Vaccines or Holocaust or War and we find ourselves in a convoluted moral quagmire with us as the Witches or Child Murderers or Nazis or Terrorists/Traitors. Dare to question The Lies and we are Mad or Idiots or last time I questioned ‘Obomba’ on not shedding a ‘famous tear’ for the killing of children in Drone attacks, I was a ‘disgusting filthy dirty Whore who breaks up decent marriages and so had not the right to lecture Americans on morality’ That told me!
But that is the convolution in a nutshell, I, and we who come from the ‘Temple of Love’ am or are forever the evil one or ones who has or have no right to question righteousness. The righteousness of the Old Testament and therefore also of Judaism, God, and the evil of Islam, Lucifer, all of which sprung from The Hemetica in the first place but all of which have been corrupted by Government but still sold as Spirituality, all the better for its’ arrogance for those who have lost any real sense of self worth through being sold the false worth of Things and National Pride and perpetuated John Wayne or Rambo Heroes and also the sense of being so small against, in fact, God/Insidious Empire but in fantasy Lucifer/enemy of the moment. They dare not question and jump on us for rocking the boat they are clinging to with such an iron grip.
Fear and that however ‘impure’ it is, most herd animals will make the best of where they are and what they have and do not want change for instinctively we know that we can only build in stable conditions. To question the status quo would mean chaos and revolution surely? Think they.
Have you noticed how the big PC ‘clean ups’ of forums has to a great extent and in hand with the incessant talk of gun control, lost us much of the old passions? I started on the old Slate forum which was a wild country; I loved them for their wildness and though not on an obvious, everyday, level, often found myself in agreement with some old time right wing posters philosophically, strange bedfellows, their voice has been greatly stilled now, I observe, because they feel threatened by a very crude and basic ‘threat against their honour’ and way of being, their very souls, all that they have always taken as American, the fact that they were given such idiotic political ‘Leaders’ and so on, they have been made insipid since they feel the tug of the rug from under their feet.
It is always with ‘good moral’ arguments that this Insidious Empire is slowly but surely destroying our freedoms of speech and so in turn our freedoms of thought, isn’t it?
