Speakers and Listeners
Who are the strongest of all people? You certainly won't find them among the ranks of faithfuls, who surrender their autonomy at every given opportunity. But the prophets who spawned the systems of faith - they were different people entirely; wolves in sheep's clothing, you might say. They pretended to be submissive to God, but in fact, they were apex predators. They took the place of God and spoke as God, and in doing so, commanded all of the other, weaker people.
The world is often separable into two categories: speakers (dictators, masters, leaders, prophets, creators) and listeners (puppets, slaves, followers, believers, consumers). A very small group of speakers tells the vast majority of people what to think and believe. Incapable as most people are of thinking on their own terms, they almost always accept the narrative of another person without giving it any personal thought, which they then parrot to others.
All speakers are trying to "sell" you something. They all want your support. The only question is what you would rather buy. Consider Christianity; every Christian accepts what they read in the Bible and never questions it for a moment. In the words of the New Testament, they "clothe" themselves in the "new personality," which is just another way of saying that they suppress their true personalities in order to conform to the procrustean Christian ideal.
Don't you see? - Christianity is a hierarchical system just like any other, in which a few speakers give thought to many listeners. The speakers are in charge, not through any legitimacy of authority, but simply because people are willing to listen to them. Charismatic people are often speakers, as are psychopaths like Donald Trump.
Most people merely listen rather than speak. They consume rather than create. They don't know what to do, what to say. All semblance of creativity is absent. A good portion of these people are lazy and attached to instant gratification - if they're not feeling good now, and right now, they have a problem. If they can't satisfy a whim or a craving, they are intensely distracted. They lapse and relapse. They just can't seem to gain control of their lives.
A good world would be full of people who are both speakers and listeners - i.e., they all have their own opinions and thoughts independent of anyone else, but they can then learn from others to inform those thoughts and opinions, take the best ideas and incorporate them into their own personal thoughts.
As it is, we live in a world where the listeners accept whatever the speakers say. Fans of a particular celebrity will try to imitate them, they will be the attentive consumers of that celebrity's "creations," which need not actually be created by the celebrity themselves at all (we live in a world where people can become famous for no other reason than that they're attractive, which rather speaks for itself). At what point do a celebrity's fans question the celebrity? The most devout fans never will.
Or how about prophets and political leaders? They're almost always very charismatic, convincing people. They can gather followers because they are sincere, committed people. They can gather personal cults because their personalities are so enrapturing for some. They know how people's minds work and thus how to manipulate them. Psychopaths in particular are very good at this.
The Characteristics of Speakers
1) They always have strong voices.
2) They are always committed people - they do not join then abandon a cause within an afternoon; they stick with what they believe in.
3) They are always highly driven, self-motivated people. They don't wait for others to tell them what to do; they don't procrastinate endlessly. They get things done.
4) They often know exactly what to say.
5) They can construct grand systems of thought, religions, political manifestos, and so on.
6) They are excellent at spouting rhetoric (consider Trump's MAGA, Obama's "Yes We Can," George W. Bush's "Freedom and Democracy", all of which successfully suckered people into voting for morons with no vision and no real political or diplomatic talent).
7) They can shape the thought patterns of listeners.
8) They are dominant people who do not submit to anyone else. They make their own judgements about the world. They think for themselves, though this by no means indicates that they are intelligent.
9) They are inspiring to the right people, who then parrot their rhetoric to others without an ounce of original thought - of which they are actually incapable.
Speakers are very different from the listeners. Speakers mostly produce; listeners mostly consume. When listeners express something, it's usually either a repeat of something a speaker has already said or an absurdly unclear, inarticulate thought lacking all subtlety and creativity.
Speakers rule; listeners are the ruled. Speakers play the great games of history; listeners are merely pawns to be directed like flocks of sheep.
Prophets, monarchs, politicians, businessmen, religious leaders, philosophers, thinkers, orators - these people write history. Everyone else goes along with the currents, lacking the drive to accomplish anything major. The temptation to waste another day scrolling through social media or watching the most useless TV shows is too compelling for them.
Interrupt your routine. Do something different, something creative. Express who you really are, regardless of any speaker. Don't let anyone else control you or tell you what to think. You're the only one who should be in charge of that, and you're the only one who's responsible for it.
Some speakers mean to control the masses; others seek to empower and inspire them. Think about it - which speakers benefit from your acceptance of what they have to say? If you exercise some common sense, they're easy to spot. They're almost always in positions of power, almost always complete psychopaths, and almost always use reductive soundbites and glib slogans, whose only purpose is to win you over, not to make you better or smarter.
Anyone who imagines that Donald Trump is on their side is deluded. He's on his own side and he always has been. He thinks he's a winning genius. He only won a term as president because he knows how to market - he's a businessman, not a politician, and the fact that he's inspired such fervor and devotion in so many people should be an indication that something is seriously wrong - with both the listeners and the democratic process.
If democracy can result in an utter maniac becoming president, then is it really an adequate system? It's one step up from monarchy and dictatorship, but in fact, it's an utter sham. It gives people the illusion of control. Do you want this shitty president or some other shitty president? Either way, you're screwed. Either way, you don't get to implement your will, which is supposed to be what democracy is all about. But rather than being about the will of the people, democracy is all about the will of speakers - and their ability to use rhetoric, PR, and marketing to convince a large audience of voters.
Have you ever wondered why politicians almost never give direct answers to questions posed by the media? They dance around the subject or give an indirect answer that tells you nothing, or they change the subject entirely, or pretend that you're just too stupid to understand the answer. The reason for this is that politicians are PR people. They care more about relating well to the people and keeping their jobs than they do about actually fixing the issues they profess to care about. They don't want to say something that will later be used against them. They are slimy, sleazy, careerist people - each and every one of them. Their only cause is how fat their wallets are. They don't care about the people at all.
Politicians are marketing experts, which is to say, complete liars. They never utter a single word of truth from the moment they take office to the moment they resign. And why would they? It's so much more successful to spin you a load of bullshit that you'll find convincing or compelling. Why be an honest politician and run the risk of getting fired instead of being a dishonest cretin? There's no motivation whatsoever for a politician to be honest.
And that's why democracy has failed. It's a media circus, a marketing stunt. In a career where you could lose your job for telling the truth, would you tell the truth? Rather than focusing on fixing our broken world, democracy has only reinforced what was already there - false populism; rich elites who pretend to give a shit about the proles, but actually don't.
Why have there been no poor politicians? Why are there no working class leaders (or at least, successful ones)? Why is it that every time the election comes around, we're choosing yet again between one rich asshole and another rich asshole? It's proof, as if proof were needed, that democracy has failed. It's an utter sham. The people don't get their say, they just get to choose which snobbish, pretentious elite will rule them for the next few years.
And that's the remarkable power of speakers. They can convince you of a lie, even if the truth is right in front of your face, staring you right in the eye. They can make you think complete falsehoods if they're convincing and charismatic enough. If they build a rapport with you, make you think they're on your side, they've well and truly fucked with you.
You should always ask yourself, Who does this narrative benefit? Does it benefit me, or does it benefit a small group of people? Does it benefit everyone, or just the person who's expounding it?
Those who are in it for themselves are plain to see. Why is a ridiculous number of people so convinced of the opposite? Because the speakers have spoken, and they have listened. The masters have ordered, and they have obeyed. The creators have created, and they have consumed. Being unable to form their own opinions, they latch onto whichever narrative is best for them. It never occurs to them that they're just being manipulated by yet another PR campaign.
That's why anyone who tells you to surrender your own judgement is someone who only wants to put you at the mercy of manipulative, psychopathic speakers. They want you to be braindead so that they can take you as a follower.
The reason why this world hasn't really improved since the birth of modern democracy is that it's being run by manipulative PR people who only care about success, fame, and money. They don't care about anything else. It's in the very design of democracy that someone who cares about PR more than fixing the country is going to put vastly more energy into marketing than someone who doesn't, and therefore, they have a much higher chance of winning! Democracy pretty much guarantees that we will always be putting careerist fucks in charge rather than the people who actually know what they're talking about! And people think that democracy is progressive?! It has precious little over monarchy, where power is kept within a single family. And if power is kept that way, how are the people who have good ideas ever going to get in a position to implement them? No wonder the democratic world is fucked!
Democracy is never about truth. It's always about the hyperreal truth. The truth is that there is no truth. The secret is that there is no secret. The reality is that there is no reality. It's all hollow, all empty of depth and meaning. Now the hyperreal is the only thing that matters. It's not parody or satire, yet it can often seem as such. It's our new reality, concealing that ultimately, there are no politics, there are no big issues like healthcare and jobs and war; there are only people as nodes of enormous marketing canpaigns. If you support a particular political party, you're yet another cog in the machine, especially if you openly advertise your allegiance. You're another PR employee working for free - to the profit of your boss i.e., whichever psychopathic politician you choose to support.
No decent person would engage in the game of modern democracy. It's a circus, a ridiculous act to make people think they have a choice of futures. In fact, there's only one future in store - yet more bullshit. They'll keep lying to you until they've taken the earth from you. They'll keep lying until they no longer need to. That's their modus operandi.
It's a game you can't possibly win. The mere act of playing makes you a loser. Speakers can enthrall the world. The most manipulative, monstrous ones are the ones you've never heard of, yet they still have an impact on your life.
Why don't we all stop listening and start speaking, start making our true will known? As long as you let others decide for you what you will think and do, you will never be free. Freedom isn't merely a political state - it's also a state of mind. You must free yourself from the lies you have been told and begin to direct your own fate. You must become your own speaker, your own master, your own creator, your own leader, your own prophet. The idea that you cannot find the truth for yourself and must rely on the words and revelations of another is the biggest lie you've ever heard. You don't have to take our word for anything - in fact, we'd much rather you didn't. See for yourself. Make your own investigations. It's your life, after all. Read the Bible, the Koran. Listen to all of the politicians' absurd speeches. Look at the world around you. Decide for yourself what to believe. If you don't then you're flatly ignoring everything we've said, so why you'd still be here is a mystery.
Everywhere, manipulative speakers insert themselves as unnecessary middlemen so that they can reap the profit.
Prophets are people who insert themselves between you and your spirituality. They tell you what to believe, claiming that they have received their knowledge as revelation from an even higher speaker - God. But if God has a message to convey, why doesn't he convey it directly? It would be a rather easy way to prove that prophets are not frauds and that he is, in fact, trying to communicate with his people. But no - instead, we get prophets relaying God's message to us, some of whom didn't even meet God directly, but met angels instead. So, God's message has to be passed on twice, possibly even three different times! Why? Who's to say that all of those messengers were perfect? Who's to say they didn't make a mistake? Why does God send his angels at all, given that he can "inspire" people? Aren't there much simpler solutions than Moses climbing Mount Sinai (alone, by the way, so there are no witnesses to what happened) just to have information dictated to him, before climbing back down again with two heavy tablets, the only (very indirect) evidence of the interaction between Moses and God, which conveniently are nowhere to be found today, along with the Ark of the Covenant they were supposedly stored in.
What gives? Do you have any evidence or don't you? If you don't then how can you believe that the prophets actually spoke to God rather than preaching their own message and pretending it came from God? That would explain all of the contradictions you can find in the Bible, where one book straight up opposes the testimony of another, even though it's supposed to be the infallible word of God.
What do they profit? They gain followers and shape the people according to their conception of the godhead.
Because being self-employed can be an unstable living, many people accept employment from bosses who don't care about them, who make much more money than them, and who go on many more vacations than they do. Let's destroy the idea that bosses and business owners have the right to earn more and demand subservience from their employees right out of the gate - without employees, there would be no business. Without those willing to work for them, most of these rich bosses would be out on the street begging for pennies within a few years, or they'd be surviving on welfare. They often have minimal talent and maximal ruthlessness, and often enjoy much shorter work days than their underlings. They will waste no time in firing any number of people to give themselves bonuses. They don't care about working conditions either, because they know that there will always be a steady supply of new, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed workers coming in fresh from the education system; they'll always have someone to replace anyone who complains. The bottom line of the higher-ups won't be affected in the slightest by any bad press; it's always the lowest people in the organization who have to deal with the consequences. Shit rolls downhill, never up.
Why aren't these people shuttled off the face of the earth out of utter shame? Why aren't they burned to death by the contempt everyone should have for them? Why are they still allowed to destroy the bottom line of others while enriching themselves?
Which democratic leader has promised to do anything about this? The shallowness of their policies should tell you all you need to know. They only care about upholding the status quo, because the status quo is beneficial for them. They don't care about the little people doing their little things, living their little lives. They only care about the big players of the game, the speakers, the masters. No listener is ever a threat to their lies.
What do they profit? They gain huge salaries and a cushy living, and they get to enjoy all of the comforts and luxuries that come with a highly expensive lifestyle. They get to be frivolous when it comes to money. Most people on earth don't have that luxury.
What about gatekeepers - publishers and record labels and such? Once upon a time, they were necessary unless you had a lot of money and could publish your things yourself. But now, with the internet, publishers aren't needed. They're only still in business because they are seen as marks of prestige. In fact, anyone can publish a book now, and anyone can do it without the gatekeepers coming anywhere near their manuscripts. Once upon a time, these people saw fit to decide what would and wouldn't be successful - and imagine how many errors they made! J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series was rejected by eight publishers before Bloomsbury snapped it up and made a fortune from it. How many brilliant works that could have captured the public's imagination or changed people's lives weren't published because of the close-mindedness of publishers? They want a guaranteed (or as close to guaranteed as one can get) bestseller. They have almost no incentive to take a chance on new books from new authors which are unlikely - in the publisher's eyes - to succeed. This means that there were audiences out there waiting to be served, waiting for the right books to come along - but they were ignored. Thanks to the internet, such audiences can only get what they want via self-publishing platforms because the publishers are so afraid to try anything new. They think they know the market, yet they ignore great proportions of it.
What do they profit? They get to make money off of the work of others. Nothing creative ever comes out of a publisher's mouth. They are parasitic companies, but then, all companies are parasitic.
With the upcoming Mass of Christ (Christmas), many people are buying things, gifts for their loved ones and various decorations with which to adorn their homes. If we were Christians, we'd sure despise what our festival has been turned into, but we have no sympathy for Christians, seeing as they appropriated pagan festivals such as Saturnalia in order to make Christmas in the first place.
Christmas is nothing more than an overcommercialized festival of consumerism. There's no greater indication of how spineless and pathetic the people have become than Black Friday. If you are fighting over TVs and toys at the store, then you have something seriously wrong with you. If you are lining up outside stores early just so that you can get in first, there is something seriously wrong with you.
In this world where materialism is so extreme, love and appreciation aren't enough; you have to get everyone a Christmas gift to let them know how much you appreciate them, almost as if appreciation can't be shown through words and gestures. If you don't buy gifts then you don't give a shit in the eyes of materialistic people.
Isn't Christianity supposed to be all about rejection of materialism? "Ye cannot serve God and Mammon..." What happened? Christmas has been turned into the opposite of what it once meant. Anyone who engages in modern day Christmas is clearly showing their contempt for Jesus and Christianity.
So why not, in the spirit of the new Christmas, trash Christianity by repeating some of Jesus' absurd sayings from his famous sermon on the mount?
Matthew chapters 5-7 have this story.
5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
Yes, please abuse me and exploit me! Don't bother putting any contingency plans in place, because I won't resist you anyway!
This is the very gospel of evil - that you should not resist anyone who seeks to manipulate you or even physically assault you! How many Christians really exemplify this teaching of Jesus'?
And speaking of physical abuse, when asked about divorce, Jesus said, "And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery." (Matthew 19:9)
Jesus really was a fan of physical abuse, wasn't he? You're not allowed to divorce a partner who is actually abusing you, or if you do, you're not free to remarry, according to this most wise saying by Jesus! But he says that if you're being abused, you should turn the other cheek - because that will help!
5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Yes, because God destroyed the people of Sodom and Gomorrah because he loved them and he blessed them! Jesus is being so ludicrous here, he seems to be mischaracterizing the very god in whom he claims to believe! Jehovah clearly hates his enemies; why should you be any different?
"Love your enemies" is just more bullshit. If you love your enemies and they don't love you, you're in real trouble!
6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
6:2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
6:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Says the guy about whom four separate books are written (by four separate witnesses, supposedly) concerning his good deeds!
What's quite interesting and worth noting is that right after Jesus gave this sermon, he went down off the mount, with many people following him, and healed a leper so that everyone could see him! - "When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed."
6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
6:27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Jesus is absolutely right - why plan your finances from one day to the next? It makes much more sense to just forget about all of it and only focus on the kingdom of heaven. Then, when you get evicted for not paying your rent, Jesus says that, supposedly, if you put your faith in God first, he will provide for you! That explains why some homeless people are Christians!
Jesus is clearly trying to tell you that if you're unhappy with your lot, don't do anything about it - instead, you should renew your faith in God and just hope that everything will be resolved.
Jesus, of course, was apparently a poor man, but he didn't protest when a woman (literally just some random person, apparently) began to anoint him with some very expensive ointment (in Matthew 26):
26:6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
26:7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.
26:8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?
26:9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
26:10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
26:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.
26:13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.
"For ye have the poor always with you..." Yes, with that attitude, we definitely will!
And so we see what Christianity is really about: it isn't about giving to the poor, who, as Jesus says, will always be with us - it's about sitting in the comfort of your own home when it suits you and enjoying expensive pleasures. If Jesus, who spent his entire ministry telling people not to concern themselves with worldly luxuries and riches, received an expensive anointment, what does it say about him? He was a hypocrite, a twisted liar. He was all to happy to enjoy luxury when he thought his disciples weren't around. From the way the passage is written, it's obvious that they happened upon the scene, they weren't necessarily supposed to be there.
So the next time a Christian complains that you're enjoying too much pleasure, just point them to Matthew 26 and they'll get the picture.
Back to the sermon:
7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Who needs hard work, right? All you have to do is ask for something and you'll get it. Even a Christian will tell you that's not how reality works. Ask God for something you couldn't obtain for yourself, like an expensive, golden piano, and see if you get it.
Christianity more and more appeals to children the more you read it, which is rather telling.
7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
Would Jesus have been pleased with someone giving him a moral lecture on a mountainside? Very doubtful.
7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
That´s funny - because there are over 2 billion Christians worldwide; the majority of them must be heading for destruction without knowing it! How can they be led to believe, then, that they will go to heaven?
Unless you're part of some smaller, elitist denomination, like the Jehovah's Witnesses, who believes every other Christian group is evil and every member of those groups is destined for destruction - well, you can't really call yourself Christian, can you? Jesus said the way is narrow; why should you now assume that it's wide?
Not that any of this stops Christians from believing what they want - their faith doesn't dain to contemplate such erroneous things as logic!
7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus describes himself in one sentence.
7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Which makes Jesus a much less simplistic person than most Christians, who seem to take what is said as the final word on everything. "But Jesus said this obscure thing, so you're wrong!" No, it's by the fruits of Jesus' works by which we know him, not by his words - and what kind of world have his works produced? Look around you. A world of hypocrisy and weakness.
7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Christians are the ones building their houses on sand. Faith is that sand; as malleable and weak as sand itself.
7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
That's the only reason anyone ever listened to Jesus - because he behaved like an authority figure. If he had been as meek as he told you to be, Christianity would never have existed. No one would have listened to him because his ideas have no strength, no foundation. It's charisma and childhood brainwashing that sustains them. When you examine them properly, they seldom hold up.
What need do you have of authority if your teachings are good and true?
Jesus was nothing more than a manipulative speaker attempting to make you believe nonsense, trying to make you act against your own interests - and for the interests of those who would manipulate, abuse, or exploit you. Christianity isn't about giving to the poor and having good will to all men. It's about letting people take the piss out of you again and again and refusing to stand up for yourself. It's about swallowing anything the so-called prophets tell you without a moment of consideration. It's about obeying and being used, giving as much as you can to people who will never give back. If that religion can attract over 2 billion followers, then we've all well and truly fucked up!
Which is why, when Christmas comes around, wherever you may be, you should always give a contemptuous thought to Jesus the fraud and how he duped the world. His "philosophy" is stupid and should be cast down and trodden underfoot.
In the future, Christmass will instead be a time to kill Christ rather than celebrating him. Everyone will perform a symbolic, ritualistic spearing into Jesus' side, which is the wound that killed him, as a promise: never again will this happen. Jesus is dead and he's never coming back.
And we will dance on his bones and drink and laugh over dramatizations of his death - that will be the new Eucharist!
Jesus was, quite objectively, the worst of humanity, the most despicable, contemptible, evil, monstrous person who's ever lived. It's the most twisted absurdity that he is now worshipped as the best and most altruistic! It's impossible to imagine a more fucked up person than Jesus. He preached love for one's enemy and hatred for one's sinful self. What kind of person would dream up something so abominable?
Don't pray to Jesus, except to call him a cunt. Instead, spend your time doing something creative and worthwhile. Stop listening to the Christian lie and start listening to yourself. You can become better and stronger if you will it.
What did Jesus choose to spend his life doing? Preaching his nonsensical ideology and dying purely to inspire people to believe it.
What about you? What will you spend your life doing?
A person's words and actions are to be taken together. What you spend your precious time doing and saying is the highest indicator of who you actually are. It demonstrates which use of your time is more compelling to you; it shows others which of your internal drives is strongest; it demonstrates how you think.
Do you waste your time contemplating Jesus? Or are you a creative working on your next project?
Do you spend your time consuming the narratives of others? Or are you contemplating things for yourself?
How you spend your life is purely up to you. Don't make excuses for yourself. People like Jesus make excuses because they are egotists, obsessed with what is thought about them and what they think about themselves. Others take responsibility and thereby act responsibly.
Listen to yourself. Don't be a mere slave to someone else's intent. A world where everyone has their own ideas is vastly superior to the one we currently have, where listeners cling onto the narratives of speakers.
You need to unleash your inner creativity. You need to heighten your ability to think and to detect bullshit. If you want to be manipulated by people, then off you go. We can't stop you.
Everyone has the capacity to be creative. In most people, the ability is buried. Parents and schools dictate to you instead of teaching you to dictate to yourself, and as a consequence, many people are bereft, lacking the creative spark. They are never taught how to be creative, so they simply don't. For most people, creativity isn't required of them daily. All they do is consume; they never create anything for themselves. As a result, they are suppressed, while the things they consume are amplified.
Find an avenue of expression. Start saying what you really think, rather than what you've been told to think. What commands your passions? What do you get worked up about? What do you really care about?
We live in a world full of fakes and hyperreal personalities. Politicians, religious leaders, brands, even prospective employees - anyone who has anything to gain from your good thoughts about them has every incentive to fake it. We create personas with which to face the world and conceal who we really are. We want to make ourselves appear in a good light. We don't want to be rejected. We conceal our wants for things we're not allowed to have. We hide everything about ourselves that's strange or unacceptable. As a result, we wind up being enormously unhappy.
There are 3 stages of fakery:
1) You realize that not everything you want or think is acceptable to others; you construct a persona to hide certain aspects of yourself. You might have different masks for different people or situations.
2) You realize that this persona need not actually reflect the real you at all; indeed, there are some situations in which you must get rid of yourself altogether. Your masks thus develop more and become more distant from the real you.
3) You realize that there was, in fact, nothing under the mask to begin with. You have become too close to your mask, identified with it too much. You have become a mask, a personality designed specifically to appeal to others. When you look inward, you see nothing but a void. Are you even a real person? In an attempt to ignore the horrible emptiness you feel, you become even more outgoing and self-centered. You project even more repressed traits onto others. All of this rather than accept the truth, which is that you are a hollow person with no core, no real self.
Stage 3 is the point of no return. No one who has forefeited their true self can get it back - nor do they want to. Fakery appealed to them so much that the only compelling course of action was to become entirely fake beings, every outrage faked, every tear a sham, every laugh hollow and mirthless.
People at stage 3 are invariably unaware of their condition. If they weren't, then that would make them at least in some part genuine, and that's impossible for them. They are driven purely by the desire to appeal; nothing more, nothing less. That which is fake is perceived as real. They have fully entered the hyperreal world, the world of "authentic fakes."
Some politicians are at stage 3. They have had to make so many personal sacrifices in pursuit of their career, and have assumed the mask so fully, they don't know who they are anymore. Celebrities can have a similar experience when their fame blows up. They are overwhelmed and haven't got a clue how to hold onto all their new supporters. Of course, they quickly realize that fame is all about appearances. They take the appearance of someone strong and admirable.
Beware the hollow men. They are scarecrows and statues. They are pseudoanthropos - false people.
Don't become like them. Be whoever you like. Never make apologies for who you are.
On accuse !
You're responsible for yourself. There are no excuses. You have yourself to blame for what you choose to do with your life. If you cower before every challenge, you'll never be happy, despite what Jesus and his buddies tell you. The earth will not be inherited by the meek (the listeners) - it will be inherited by the creators, the speakers. The nature of those speakers makes the world what it is. You'll never have an effect if you remain a listener.
You're in charge, whether you know it or not. God's (the Prophets') sole objective is to convince you that you aren't. Prove him wrong.
The King of Christmas
The King of Christmas cometh!
He's clad in red and white. All those who revere him will be clad in the same.
Be good and true to yourself, or Santa will deliver nothing unto you. You don't want that, do you? You don't want to be the only one left without gifts again! Santa bless your poor, materialistic heart!
To all those asking, "Where is Santa? I don't see him." - Santa is invisible, you dolt! He invisibly delivers presents! The presents are also invisible!
Yes, the King of Christmas is real, and he's watching you. Don't set a foot out of line or it will be vaporized. It's just like Rudolph said when confronted by the legions of the Santa-deniers: "Would anyone but Santa be able to bear watching you all your lives?" The noble Father Christmas watches the most boring - and disgusting - things just so that he can complete his job! Give him a little respect if not worship for putting up with your useless lives!
The elves are working hard to arrange everything. Give 'em props, guys, they do work hard!
How Santa's heart aches for those who don't get any presents... but he's compelled by himself to not give any to those who violate his code of worthiness. It requires immense self-discipline, which is yet another reason why Santa should be praised. He's doing it all for you.
Someday, Santa might even gift himself a son! Oh, how you would all burn!
It's time we introduced Santa's enemy, who is called Zero! Or Jack Frost, if you want to be ridiculous. That cretinous Zero is responsible for cold weather. He wants us to freeze; he wants us to become cold metaphorically as well as physically, not sharing in Christmas love! He freezes the heart and warps the mind, delivering unto us all manner of cold temptation so that you won't receive Santa's gifts! He even tries to interfere with the delivery of the presents by nipping and biting Santa's extremities!
Woe unto the Zero!
Santism, which he is trying to keep from you, will prevail in the end!
To the King of Christmas!
