Looking back on human history, do you see anything remotely healthy or sound? How many people have been healthy people? What kind of people has the world produced, and what kind does it produce now? Just as the Abrahamic Creator God’s nature can be seen in the world (the creation is reflective of its creator), so the nature of humanity can be discerned in the specimens it produces. Are those specimens good, healthy, sane people? Are they made straight and honest by the world that shapes them so much?
Most people are incomplete in some vital way. As a result, they seek the comfort of things that shouldn’t be there. Addiction, religious faith, domestic violence, drug abuse, human trafficking, exploitation (both monetary and otherwise), slavery, neurotic fixation and infatuation, lies, backstabbing, destruction of property (both intellectual and otherwise), bigotry, xenophobia, extreme patriotism, terrorism, etc. – these are the activities of profoundly unhealthy and unhappy people. The world has let them all down. Many are born in unenviable circumstances, are never taught to properly manage their emotions, and are typically either the beneficiaries of very little education or psychopathic.
People are continually let down by the world. It's not structured to support each and every individual. Why not? Because there is one recurring theme throughout every society on earth: that of speaking and listening. Speakers are those who dictate to people; they are natural leaders. Listeners are those who accept the words of the speakers, being too weak to direct their own lives. Speakers – those natural at leading – always end up on top. Everyone else is pushed carelessly aside. The question is not whether speakers should be running the world; it is whether psychopathic speakers should be running the world.
The answer is no, of course. Why should individuals who only have regard for themselves, their families, and whatever cronies they have allied themselves with ever be in control of anything? Yet this is all too often the case with humanity.
Monarchs are never decent people, otherwise they would give their wealth to their struggling, starving people – but instead, they surround themselves with the most expensive clothes, furniture, paintings, ornaments, possessions, technology, etc. They even have servants, i.e., inferiors who are there to do the things they consider themselves above. Why do monarchies still exist? Why do they still sully the world with their projected superiority? In fact, they are inferior to the people they rule in every way. If everyone was a queen or a king, nothing would ever get done. Kings and queens don't want to be part of the pillars of society, yet they're quite happy to sit atop it all. They are therefore disgusting hypocrites who are in it for themselves. If you were born into a "royal" family, wouldn't you disown each and every single one of the cunts?
Moreover, any leader is inferior to their people because any one of them could be deposed and overthrown at any moment. Do you know why the "royal family" of the UK frequently supports charity events and local organizations and gives out awards? Because if they didn't, everyone would realize how completely irrelevant they are. They're treated like celebrities, except that most celebrities are actually known for something they did. What have members of the "royal family" done, except happen to be born into that family?
What about politicians? They are hardly an improvement. They are merely celebrity business managers. Their party is their brand. Everything is about brand perception and public relations, except that political parties are more important to people than commercial brands because they assume values (unlike commercial brands, those blank faces with nothing to say! If slavery was still supported by the common person, they would support it too – like Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9: "For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some." – it's all about appealing to as many people as possible, which makes Christianity the world's first commercial religion; at least the Jews didn't pretend to be someone they weren't, just to recruit more followers).
Politicians are professional PR people. They exist only to acquire and hold onto power. That's their entire drive. They don't care at all about the issues they advocate for; they're just marketers who trick you into thinking they are important to you and will make a difference in favor of your values. What has actually changed under the rule of politicians? They are prepared to say or do anything to attain and retain power, yet the world remains much the same place as it always has been. There have been no fundamental changes – which is exactly the kind of change that needs to happen.
What about prophets? They are perhaps the worst people of all. Paul's self-professed amorphology, which we quoted above, should be an indication of what kind of people prophets are. Like politicians (and monarchies to a large extent), they are marketers. They don't tell the truth because they don't know how to tell the truth. They are all about PR and public perception. They are all about gaining followers and peddling their ridiculous views to others. It may sound unbelievable that anyone might follow someone who claims to be the son of God today, someone who doesn't perform any miracles or present any evidence at all of their supposed divine credentials – but you can be sure that there is any number of cults revolving around exactly that scenario right now! Prophets are skilled speakers, and charismatic. They use rhetoric and polemical speeches to establish their own power and authority of word. Everyone else who speaks differently from them is automatically considered a liar or a deluded person. Cult members never pay any attention to the merit or otherwise of what is said; if it aligns with their cult's views, they accept it, and if not, then they throw it away.
Such is the degree to which "prophets" can exploit people, some cults even commit grievous crimes or equally grotesque suicides. These people can convince their followers to abandon the law and all consideration for outsiders. As for their dupes, they always do what they're told in pursuit of some close relationship with God or some spiritual enlightenment or some apparently good cause. In other words, prophets are experts at molding the world, or rather, their followers' perception of it, via the use of signs, symbols, rhetoric, polemics, "logical" arguments, "auras," charisma, personal rapports, and so on. They are very good at using your own mind against you. They are like chess masters manipulating pawns. They speak and the pawns obey. They can make people see whatever they want. That's why you should always be skeptical of someone who is trying to sell you a worldview – especially us. We encourage you to examine what we say and consider it for yourself. Never believe anything simply because someone tells it to you.
You see, all you have to do is examine the nature of the game someone plays and the nature of their role within that game to determine who they are and whether or not they're on your side. Are they trying to enlighten you or manipulate you? Are they in it for others or clearly in it for themselves? It's not hard. If you are entertaining the idea that any given political leader or monarch or prophet may be an exception to all this, look again. What do they say? What do they do? Are both of those things in harmony with each other?
It's clear that the world is fucked up because of its leaders – its incredibly inept and pathetic leaders. Anyone hoping to change the world cannot be in support of the current world leaders. They are everything that stands in the way of a new world.
If you were God, wouldn't you be ashamed of the world you'd created? Wouldn't you question the fact of whether or not you really were God, purely because of the disastrous nature of your personal creation? If God really did create the world, then he's got some explaining to do, don't you think? It shouldn't be our job to explain.
Isn't it about time that people were educated in themselves? People have no idea how they themselves work. As a result, they do many things unconsciously. What have you ever been taught about emotional management, anger management, the exercise of courage?
Do more and more people have mental illnesses like depression and anxiety today, or have these illnesses always existed in such large numbers, but disguised beneath the neglect of mental health that was common until not very long ago? It may be the case that more people are depressed and anxious today than two centuries ago, but it's inconceivable that these illnesses would suddenly rise from small to gigantic numbers, especially given the relatively peaceful state of the world now. The world itself has not changed to any great degree since the time of Jesus. It's still essentially the same. Which tells us that people themselves have not changed either.
People have always been neglected in some way, and they are compelled to compensate. They are never told how to manage themselves. Every parent has their own "style" of parenting, meaning that some people may be extremely deficient in areas that others may be extremely proficient in. Schools are concerned with dictation and memorization. Whenever you perform an activity yourself, it's usually all about following rules you've been taught. There's a certain way to write a letter, a certain way to apply Pythagoras' Theorem. When you're sitting an exam, there are certain facts and methods relevant to the questions you're asked – and your task is to memorize these and regurgitate them onto the paper. You're never asked to demonstrate creativity or any real mastery of what you've been taught, and as a result, most people don't know what to do when presented with anything that's slightly out of the box.
Worst of all is people's lack of understanding when it comes to psychology. If people don't know themselves, how are they supposed to manage themselves properly? How are they supposed to stop themselves from being suckered into buying a manipulative cult's ideology? How are they supposed to guide their own development (and the development of others) in a healthy way? It's absolute madness that psychology isn't considered the most important subject of all. People have religious studies, but they never have self-studies unless they deliberately sign up for it and devote several years of their lives to it. What gives? The world is made up of people. Any study of the world necessarily involves the study of people, and any attempt to make the world better necessarily involves an attempt to make people better. The subject that's most crucial to that end is squirrelled away where barely anyone studies it. Why is psychology not compulsory study for everyone?
Speaking of education, why doesn't everyone receive the same education? Why are richer people considered more worthy of a good education? Any sane person would say they actually aren't. So, if the world is a sane place, then why is it the case that some people get a better education than others?
Dumb and Dumber
Education doesn't concern a person's intelligence; it concerns a person's knowledge. It's not about how talented, resourceful, or masterful you are, it's about what you can memorize and regurgitate from your studies and which methods you can apply most flawlessly. The world isn't trying to create intelligent people, it's trying to create "knowledgeable" people, who invariably forget almost everything they've learned the moment they've completed the exam or assignment.
Only when you get to PhD level do you find any work that could be called original or pioneering, and even then, your research must be accepted by others in your field, meaning that if you're a genius, someone who's far ahead of your time, you probably won't get any recognition at all.
People aren’t taught how to be intelligent; they have to learn that themselves, or have a sufficient aptitude. Intelligence is all about the creative acquisition and application of knowledge, both intuitively and consciously. Anyone can follow a chain of logic; it requires intelligence to find one. An IQ test revolves around the intuitive application and manipulation of knowledge and logic. Most people are terrible at it. How can their skill be improved? Does anyone bother to find out? Is everyone still assuming that a person's intelligence just is what it is and can't be changed? What support have governments (who have everything to gain from it) given to researchers to look into this matter? Very little, if any. It's not considered a subject of importance. What's much more important is Tweeting on the Fourth of July. In other words, the real issues that could make a difference are ignored while trivial matters are assigned the highest importance.
Intelligence revolves around thinking. Therefore, any tradition that encourages lack of thought is also anti-intelligence. In the Abrahamic religions, you're never supposed to think, but have faith. Faith is a way of halting any serious, original thought. You don't need to think when you're reading the Bible, just accept every word as true. The Bible doesn't provoke thought; it doesn't say that you should be as smart as you can be. In fact, thanks to the numerous lies and instances of ignorance it propagates, it actively encourages ignorance and stupidity. It tells you that you're sinful, that your thinking will always be flawed, so you just shouldn't bother – listen to God instead, he knows what he's talking about.
When stupidity is promoted and intelligence isn't, what do we all expect for an outcome? We'll always wind up with a stupid world and a stupid population. But it's against the interests of the politicians and businessmen for you to become smart, so if you want to be so, you'll have to work on it on your own terms. Intelligent people are less susceptible to the lies of marketers like those described above.
How to Manage a Brand
What's a brand? It's something that distinguishes what you have to offer from others. The brand of Christianity is the death and resurrection of Jesus. The brand of Judaism is the concept of the Chosen People. The brand of Islam is Mohammed. Every brand is concerned with something distinctive and recognizable. Commercial brands are often logos and taglines. Politicians' brands revolve around party logos and soundbites. Prophets' brands revolve around their unique teachings and terminology. If you look closely, you will notice that the world is almost nothing but brand. We can even have our own personal brand, which we plaster all over social media, a fake version of ourselves.
A brand means nothing if there is no one to perceive it, if it's not recognized. Brands are all about popularity and public perception. If it has a good reputation, it's bound to attract more followers. If it has a bad reputation, like many cults, "conversions" won't occur often. Here's how to create and manage a brand.
First, you have to make one. This isn't hard, and it may or may not revolve around yourself. Make sure it will mean something to people; think about what people want and give it to them. Depending on the brand itself, you may wish to insult and deride other brands of the same kind while hyping your own up. Come up with a catchy slogan or a logo that's easy to draw (and thus reproduce). Shorter is better with the slogan; it needs to be easy to say and type, so it can be regurgitated by brand followers and thus has a higher chance of going viral. Speaking of going viral, you can make memes revolving around your brand. It's all about popularity and engagement.
Never admit that your brand isn't perfect and never talk about its negative aspects. Never advertise your brand by presenting the truth; always blow things out of proportion or straight up lie. Never answer questions with straight answers; any answer you give may later be used against you, or you may find that you are, in fact, clueless about what you're saying, or you might alienate people who could otherwise follow your brand; you risk alienating too many people if you answer too many questions (this is how politicians and Jesus work). Never present your brand without all of its marketing fluff, or else people might see it for what it is.
On that note, always pretend that the brand is more significant than it actually is – you've seen those ads in which eating chocolate is presented as the most ecstatic thing on earth, right? Always take the opportunity to lure more people into following your brand; don't hide it away. Always associate publicly with your brand; people tend to be suspicious of entirely anonymous others, especially on the internet. Always provide a reason for people to follow your brand; provide them with something they want, be it memes, written content, videos, "spiritual guidance," etc. – give people a reason to come back and give them the opportunity to be active and engage with your brand. Always get your circumstances right; if it isn't appropriate to say something now, wait until it is.
Emotionally vulnerable people are excellent if you're making a cult brand. Take advantage of old and young people if you're a politician. The formula for effective marketing is really quite straightforward.
In many ways, the internet is most revealing of the world's people. On the internet, you can be anyone you want to be. You can be anonymous, so you're free to act as you please without personal repercussions. The internet has made it easier than ever to create a brand. Attention has become a currency, so brand-oriented is the internet. People who work for or are commissioned by others are sometimes told that they will be paid in "exposure" rather than money, or that they will be able to "build their portfolio" (this used to be more common than it is now).
If you don't have a good brand on the internet, you'll never get much attention at all. But sometimes, the lack of a brand is itself a brand. Sometimes, the rejection of the brand principle is all you need to have a compelling brand yourself.
The internet reveals how brand-obsessed we are, how much we're suckered by marketing. Suddenly it becomes clear why Christianity has prospered despite being abject nonsense – because it's perfect for a species like ours. It reflects our own tendencies and desires. The internet tells us why we have failed as a civilization. Yet hope persists. The internet, which is frequently used for evil, can also be used for good; you are reading this thanks to the internet, and a wealth of other information exists at your fingertips – you are better equipped than ever to become smart and educated. But most people choose not to be, which is even more revealing.
The internet is a giant brand machine. Every day, brands are interacting with other brands, trying to impress the people behind them. Might we one day be nothing but brands? Might all authenticity fade, leading us to become brand-people? Might Baudrillard's hyperreality penetrate every part of our lives? We're already well on our way to such a future.
What must be done? The brand, which is an entity created specifically for marketing purposes, must be eradicated and replaced with genuine representations of ourselves. If all we can offer is a brand, then why do we bother? If we're all trying to market a brand, then we have nothing real or constructive to say, so we might as well say nothing. We must end our obsession with false brands and instead concern ourselves with what's actually meaningful. As long as brands are in place, people will always fall for lies.
The Tour Guide to Hell
All games ultimately revolve around one thing: power. Nietzsche believed that the aspiration toward it, or the "will to power," was the most important aspect of our nature. He said, "Life itself appears to me as an instinct for growth, for survival, for the accumulation of forces, for power: whenever the will to power fails there is disaster." It's clear where the will to power fails; Nietzsche goes on: "My contention is that all the highest values of humanity have been emptied of this will—that the values of décadence, of nihilism, now prevail under the holiest names."
Christianity makes a virtue out of being powerless. Jesus' twisted claim that "the meek will inherit the earth" is the perfect expression of this. It permits exploitation of the weak by claiming that the weak will (one day, not in the here and now) rule everything. When the meek are called godly, you can be certain that you're living in an extremely perverse world.
It's astonishing that people imagine hell to be somewhere else, anywhere but here. We're living among the demons already. The King of the World is the King of Hell, the supreme demon. Humanity has been stripped of its sovereignty. Who has taken it away from us? God has. Why? Because he's a psychopath, just like the prophets who invented him. Prophets have entirely ruined humanity. They have brought it low by demonizing the will to power, the instinct to strive. They have choked it dead. There's no intelligence, no ambition, no autonomy – only meek, pathetic worshipers, who are convinced that they must rely on God despite the fact that atheists get along just fine without him. In other words, they can't manage their emotions properly and require a "holy text" to tell them what to do.
Ever wonder what hell's like? Look around. The Abrahamic religions invented hell, and in doing so, they made the world hell.
Jean-Paul Sartre said, "Hell is other people." And it's us. Hell is not an external place; it's a condition we create in ourselves when we become too afraid to pursue the will to power.
There's nothing wrong with wanting power (which, in this context, refers to a broader spectrum of things than power over others); power in itself isn't an end, it's a means – and it's the end you hope to achieve with it that matters. Power is the ability to do something. Those without power, who can do nothing, are always fated to be at the mercy of those with power. The solution is not to make power a crime, but to make everyone powerful – as we have advocated before, everyone should be their own speaker, their own prophet. People have only succumbed to such perverse lies as Jesus' because they are weak – and the weak are attracted to an ideology that proclaims them as the ultimate rulers of the world, for even the weak wish to be strong. You won't become so by believing in Jesus, you can be sure about that.
The world isn't a healthy place because it's corrupt. Nietzsche wrote, "I call an animal, a species, an individual corrupt, when it loses its instincts, when it chooses, when it prefers, what is injurious to it."
All weak people prefer what's injurious to them. They are psychological self-harmers. When people have stopped trying to grow and improve – then you can be sure that corruption will arise. It's either growth or decay.
The Imaginary Religion
Nietzsche said, "Under Christianity neither morality nor religion has any point of contact with actuality. It offers purely imaginary causes ('God,' 'soul,' 'ego,' 'spirit,' 'free will'—or even 'unfree'), and purely imaginary effects ('sin,' 'salvation,' 'grace,' 'punishment,' 'forgiveness of sins'). Intercourse between imaginary beings ('God,' 'spirits,' 'souls'); an imaginary natural history (anthropocentric; a total denial of the concept of natural causes); an imaginary psychology (misunderstandings of self, misinterpretations of agreeable or disagreeable general feelings—for example, of the states of the nervus sympathicus with the help of the sign-language of religio-ethical balderdash—, 'repentance,' 'pangs of conscience,' 'temptation by the devil,' 'the presence of God'); an imaginary teleology (the 'kingdom of God,' 'the last judgment,' 'eternal life')."
Christianity is the religion of the imaginary – it's a complete falsification of reality. Its statements about God are totally at odds with nature. Of course, Jesus' claim that the weak will be the greatest on earth is unreal too. It's all nonsense, and if you dare to point out how nonsensical it is, then you're the damned, the treacherous, the serpent in the garden of Eden who tempted Adam and Eve into eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil – you are manifestly the worst of humanity for pointing out how illogical something is, and for that, you deserve to go to hell! If you object to the lies of Christianity for conscientious reasons, nope – off to hell! If Christianity simply doesn't make sense to you, die, son of Satan!
That's the level of sophistication you're dealing with. Moreover, it serves to highlight how untrue Christianity is, how much of a lie in need of protection it clearly is. If it's the truth, then it would have no reason to demonize anyone who speaks out against it. Instead, it regularly condemns such people. Speaking of condemnation, you're fully deserving of it if you live any kind of life other than the one God has specifically prescribed for you depending on your sex. Like Jesus said, if your right eye is making you stumble, rip it out and toss it away – better to lose an eye than to miss out on God's kingdom!
"Once the concept of 'nature' had been opposed to the concept of 'God,' the word 'natural' necessarily took on the meaning of 'abominable'—the whole of that fictitious world has its sources in hatred of the natural (—the real!—), and is no more than evidence of a profound uneasiness in the presence of reality.... This explains everything. Who alone has any reason for living his way out of reality? The man who suffers under it. But to suffer from reality one must be a botched reality.... The preponderance of pains over pleasures is the cause of this fictitious morality and religion: but such a preponderance also supplies the formula for décadence...." – Nietzsche
In other words, Christianity is a form of escapism that allows its followers to ignore reality because it's too painful for them. They aren't strong enough to deal with it. They haven't given it any serious attempt, but who cares?
People can seek power for any number of reasons. Christianity is what happens when you don't have a reason, when you aren't motivated enough to pursue power.
Some people seek to become stronger so that they can help others in specific ways. By far the most prevalent power seekers are of course psychopaths. They have no scruples, no reservations about crushing others in order to secure their own power. They want to live the best lives, have the best of everything. This world makes it easy for them to prey on everyone else. Capitalism and politics reward the ruthless. The world rewards ruthlessness, but has no reward for altruism (other than a little award for your trouble), and in that regard, many people are ignored. It's never a matter of what you do, it's all about how willing you are to ruin someone else's life to better your own.
In the workplace, psychopaths can step on their colleagues to get promotions, whereas any good, decent person would only ever attempt to get a promotion through honest means.
The solution? Identify psychopaths and put measures in place to ensure that they don't deceive others into giving them what they want.
Many solutions are simple; it's implementing them that's complicated, and that's where politicians (don't) come in. They are never possessed of the impetus to implement any real solutions. They can only give us half-measures.
Why is the world so terrible? Because it's ruled by terrible people, by psychopaths. It's that simple. There are no elaborate conspiracies involving aliens or a hollow earth, as conspiracy theorists would have you believe. Such people are only distracting from the truth about the enemy. They believe that they have found the "reality" of the situation, when in fact they are only deluding themselves. You're not being mind-controlled, you're just stupid. You're not the victim of chem trails, you just make unhealthy choices. Occam's Razor tells us to always find the simplest credible explanation of any given phenomenon. There's no point in going into huge, convoluted conspiracies if simpler explanations are available. Conspiracy theories are cult brands in which the theorists are the prophets.
Why is the world so terrible? Because it's filled with terrible people; weak people who are made terrible by the psychopaths in charge. It really is that simple. The state of the world reflects the people in it, given that the world is a collective of people. Each individual informs the collective, and the collective informs each individual. Both collective and individual are in a perpetual feedback loop.
Chaos theory is about how small, seemingly insignificant changes in the present can change the future hugely. Its principle effect is called the butterfly effect – when a small change leads to big consequences over time.
How we behave is up to us, but fortune and serendipity are ruled by chaos theory. If things had happened slightly differently a millennium ago, would we be living in an entirely different world? Chaos theory tells us that it's more than possible. Sometimes, small events like forgetting to take your keys with you when you go out can eventually mean the difference between life and death for you. When we examine the world according to chaos theory, it seems as if our choices don't mean anything, that we all move according to the chaos of the complicated systems of the world. In fact, what chaos theory tells us is that our choices couldn't be more significant. A small decision on our part can make a huge difference, good or bad. And it tells us how easy it might be to escape the hellish world in which we find ourselves, transforming it into something unrecognizable.
Chaos theory tells us that, had historical circumstances been slightly different, we might now be living in a different world, perhaps a better one. Of course, chaos theory isn't the determining factor in large, organized revolutions, showing that, if the people will it, the world can change. The existing structures of corruption can be overthrown.
Patriotism, when mild, is harmless. But when it becomes something more than a fondness for your own country, it becomes unacceptable. "America first" is a slogan used by Trump, and it champions America to the detriment of all other nations on earth. America might be the foremost concern of the people who live there, but of the entire world, America is only a small portion.
Patriotism like this is better referred to by a different name: xenophobia – fear (or hatred) of the other, the foreign, the strange, the alien. Xenophobic people always have dramatic psychological issues revolving around social acceptance, conformity, and being an "insider." They have a hatred of other cultures and fear those cultures' "infiltration" and destruction of their culture. Xenophobic Trumpers hate anyone who comes from Asia or the Middle East, and they seem to think that there's some kind of sinister plot by these people to take over and destroy American culture. They might go on vacation to other countries, but nowhere too far out of the way!
Trump has called Coronavirus the "China Virus." If a virus came from America, he wouldn't be calling it the "America Virus," would he? He calls it the China Virus because he hates China and he blames it for the outbreak of COVID-19. His zealous, credulous supporters are of course with him on that. They're members of the Trump cult; the Trump brand is the most important thing in their lives. Before the 2016 election, barely anyone knew very much at all about Trump. It's our intense displeasure to have become more acquainted with him.
Trump has also demonstrated racism. Quite notoriously, he declared that Muslims would no longer be allowed to enter the US from foreign countries until the "terrorist threat" had been sorted out. The news was heaven to all of his xenophobic and racist followers, who screw their faces up whenever they see a foreigner in the street.
Of course, none of these people actually understand what foreigners are like; they latch onto unflattering stereotypes and mistake them for reality: all British people love tea and have bad teeth; all French people wear berets and are cold and heartless; all Italians love spaghetti and over-enunciate their language; all Arabians are sweaty and have beards…
Here's one: all Americans are fat and obnoxious. Yet American xenophobes would be the last people to affirm those stereotypes because they understand America. Taking the time to understand and appreciate foreign cultures is something they don't want to do because of the aforementioned psychological issues. They're terrified of being strangers.
Grow up! If you're going to hate someone, hate them for something they actually are, not for something they aren't!
Christianity is actually not the most popular religion on earth. In fact, the most popular religion is Moronism (not to be confused with Mormonism!). Morons rule the world. There are morons on your street, in your neighborhood.
Moronism teaches that anything you believe is true, regardless of evidence or proof. It's what allows Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and so on to believe that they have found the truth in spite of having zero evidence! Yes, you can be an adherent of Moronism and another religion at the same time, because Moronism is the religion of morons, and since when did morons care about having two contradictory beliefs at the same time? It's all just beyond their understanding and reason. Clever, huh?
Moronism is a ghost religion; it occupies people's lives, but nobody admits to believing in it. Why? Because its central tenet is that it's a terrible religion that nobody should believe in. Metaphysically, it teaches the existence of an illogical reality where logical fallacies reign. Ones like argumentum ad populum and the straw man are gods in Moronism. Not that morons pay any attention to the teachings they swallow. They are simple people who just want a simple life and simple beliefs.
Moronism's high priests are its creators: the ones who spout moronic drivel. Like Christianity, the word "moron" has maintained exactly the same meaning since ancient times! The truly moronic never change. Moronism is set in stone – it's immovable, immutable, eternal. It's God!
Everywhere, we see exploitation. Employers try to exploit people for extra work, spouting ridiculous company "philosophies" and "cultures;" conmen and scammers try to take advantage of ignorance; politicians sucker gullible people into voting for them and their brands; advertisers tempt people into buying things they don't need; prophets exploit the gullibility of the masses for followers; criminals exploit people for money, and on and on.
Why is all this allowed to happen? Because the world runs on exploitation; that's its purpose. It doesn't give a shit about being upright and honest. If it did, it would be radically different.
Creation and Consumption
As long as most people remain consumers, they will always be controlled by the creators. Creation involves being creative and thinking your own thoughts, not those of someone else. If you can't create your own views and opinions, how can you be free? Only the creators have true freedom. Only they can accomplish whatever they wish. Consumers have no originality in them, owing to their total lack of strength and creative instincts.
Consumers are those who cannot think for themselves. They're always accepting someone else's version of reality without a single original thought. When you watch Christian Televangelist shows or hear Christians preach, nothing is more apparent than the fact that everything they are saying has been said before. They offer no thoughts of their own – and don't have any; they think entirely in terms of the teachings they have internalized.
The Will to Nothingness
"God degenerated into the contradiction of life. Instead of being its transfiguration and eternal Yea! In him war is declared on life, on nature, on the will to live! God becomes the formula for every slander upon the 'here and now,' and for every lie about the 'beyond'! In him nothingness is deified, and the will to nothingness is made holy!..." – Nietzsche
Consumers have the Will to Nothingness, not the Will to Power. They wish to be nothing, to be complete voids and vacuums. They are consumed by the systems they support, so that the individual is barely distinguishable.
Become a creator and come up with your own opinions. Don't be nothing but a consumer, listening to and obeying the systems of others. Educate yourself and become intelligent.
Intelligence is a muscle; it must be exercised to become and stay strong. Someone who never exercises their intelligence is the opposite: stupid, unintelligent. Shouldn't the exercise of intelligence be one of the foremost concerns for any government? Surely an intelligent people is preferable to a stupid, docile people. If the people were intelligent, then they could never be exploited, which is, as we know, what runs the world. People in power have every reason to contribute to your stupidity. For one thing, you're much more likely to support them if you're stupid because they're liars. Any honest leader shouldn't have any problem with serving an intelligent people.
It's beneficial for advertisers that you don't think about their emotional manipulation and just buy the goddamn product. It's beneficial for politicians that you don't look at the objective facts, otherwise you might get the impression that they're all as bad as each other. It's beneficial for preachers and prophets that you don't examine what they have to say or demand proof of their teachings, otherwise you might see how much bullshit they're trying to sell you. It's beneficial for monarchs that you continue to clap and cheer in adoration for them, otherwise you might realize how much of an insult they are to you.
Every marketer benefits from making you stupid, or at least, not making you intelligent. There doesn't have to be any conscious conspiracy going on; the preacher is not consciously manipulating you – he's just peddling his religion using well-established techniques that he doesn’t really understand. He's copying successful preachers.
Nature promotes intelligence and learning. She does not promote the unnatural stunting of personal growth. That's something we humans invented, and it's something we must now destroy.
Without the people's support, all these marketers would be dead useless. Their only talent is manipulating people; when there's no one to manipulate, what will they do?
Monarchs can exercise their power over their domains only because they have many servants willing to implement it. A monarch has no power in themselves.
Politicians can only remain in power because of the support (or fear in dictatorships) of the people. A politician has no power in themselves.
Prophets can only command thousands because of those people's credulous belief in them. A prophet has no power in themselves.
It's only our unintelligence that keeps them in power.
Worldly power is all about authority. But there is no such thing as "legitimate" authority. All authority was seized at some point. A royal family is descended from people who took power for themselves. A politician tricked people into electing them. A prophet tricked people into believing them. God has authority only because he told everyone he does; there's no necessary connection between the concepts of God and authority. The next time you hear the phrase "legitimate authority," ask yourself: on what basis is the authority legitimate? Invariably, the answer comes down to, "because we said so."
You have every right to oppose any authority that doesn't support the interests of the people. Let no one tell you otherwise.
In the past, monarchs insisted on their authority by claiming that they were the elect of God – and what higher authority was there than God? Who was more correct than God? Of course, they never had any proof of their claims, relying on the people's unintelligence to support their false authority. These days, the "royal family" of the UK is silent on that front. Wonder why…
Authority is only as powerful as it is accepted. Historical revolutions are proof of that.
Not all creators choose to create good things. Jesus is one example of a "bad" creator. He created with the goal of exploiting people, not enlightening and empowering them.
The Boreal Feast
On Christmas Day, Santa retires to rest from his intense work for the night. If Santa delivers presents to you, you are safe from the influence of Jack Zero – but if not, you can be sure of a visit from the conniving beast!
During his rest, Santa has a big feast. As we feast, so he feasts. Eating on Christmas Day is therefore a mark of respect for Santa. Deliberately not eating is an act of support for Zero!
Santa's reindeer and elves join him in his grand feast at the North Pole. They have done all their work, done Santa's will. Reindeer are carriers of Santa's power, while elves are implementers of it.
Santa is the Boreal God indulging his Boreal Feast.
Did you know that Zero was once one of Santa's elves? Ever since he betrayed the white-bearded Father Christmas, the North Pole has been covered in snow! They had a hard time adapting to the cold! But one day, Santa and Zero will be reunited, and the seasons will once again be balanced.
Give a cheer this Christmas for your Boreal Father!
If you understand marketing, you understand the world. Our world is made of nothing but marketing and brand. Marketing is all about giving people what they want. It has become incredibly sophisticated over centuries.
Everything that's professionally marketed goes through stages. There are detailed guides telling marketers how to create a product that people want, then how to sell it. These guides are always constructed psychologically. Marketing strategies exist not just to make people aware of something, but also to transform that awareness into intent, and then into an actual "sale."
Convincing people to take time out of their quite possibly busy day to review what you're trying to sell is difficult, but a good marketer doesn't pander to the masses to achieve what they want: they turn the tables, so that people are actually begging for their product/attention. Celebrity endorsements is one tactic these people might use.
Stores will sometimes move products around so that you have to go around the entire store looking for what you want. Online stores will often tempt you with additional offers just when you're entering the checkout stage, and sometimes take every opportunity to hide additional fees, making them difficult to spot or hard to read. Fast food stores ensure that you can smell the food from the street so that you're tempted to go inside. Publishers rely on perceived prestige.
There are countless other strategies in use, but perhaps the most incriminating fact about marketing is that it typically has nothing to do with creating something good and worthwhile. Marketers are interested in sales, nothing else.
In the same way as marketers are concerned with sales, people are usually concerned with social acceptance. They therefore have to "sell" themselves to those around them, make themselves seem acceptable and normal. We do it by instinct. We become marketers ourselves, figuring out which persona will be best received. This goes beyond moderation of behavior; people actually make themselves out to be completely different people to who they actually are in order to gain approval, especially from their peers. Teenagers naturally construct personae, but these are then carried into the adult life. Rather than being themselves, people have every incentive to be someone they're not. Yet another area in which the world lets people down.
When you get right down to it, everyone's trying to "sell" you something: a product, a belief system, an idea… Marketing in itself isn't evil; it's when marketing becomes more important than quality (which it frequently does) and serves the end goal of making as much money or as many followers as possible that it becomes an evil and scummy exercise.
Why is the world such a bad place? Simply put, because it's ruled by bad people who use marketing to convince the world that they are "legitimate," that they should be in power. Everyone has now become another marketer, engaging in the same game, but on a much more trivial scale. Looking back through history, we see that even religious leaders have been expert marketers, and that the practice of marketing is one of the oldest on earth.
In truth, they are only deceiving you. They are complete psychopaths, and it's exactly because they are willing to say and do anything to get you on their side that they are successful. They are speakers, liars, charlatans, conmen, and peddlers of erroneous ideologies like Conservativism.
