The UTOPIAN QUEST (Dystopian Nowhere)
“IF there is NO GOD, EVERYTHING is PERMITTED”– Fyodor Dostoevsky
“And they said, go to, let us build us a CITY and a TOWER, whose top may REACH UNTO HEAVEN; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth” – Genesis 10:4
“and the Lord said, behold, the people is ONE, and they have all one language; and this they BEGIN to do: and NOW NOTHING WILL BE RESTRAINED FROM THEM, which they have IMAGINED to do.” Genesis 10:6
“To do EVIL a human being must first of all BELIEVE that what he’s DOING is GOOD” – Solzhenitsyn
This tilt of FREEDOM TOWARD EVIL has come about gradually, but it evidently stems from a humanist and benevolent concept to which MAN – the MASTER of THIS WORLD – DOES NOT BEAR ANY EVIL WITHIN HIMSELF, andALL the DEFECTS of LIFE are CAUSED by MISGUIDED SOCIAL SYSTEMS, which must therefore be CORRECTED.” – Solzhenitsyn’
“IF ONLY there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to SEPARATE THEM from the REST of US and DESTROY THEM. BUT the LINE DIVIDING GOOD and EVIL CUTS THROUGH the HEART of EVERY HUMAN BEING. And who is willing to destroy a piece of HIS OWN heart?
During the life of any heart this line keeps changing place; sometimes it is squeezed one way by exuberant evil and sometimes it shifts to allow enough space for good to flourish. One and the SAME human being is, at various ages, under VARIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES, a TOTALLY DIFFERENT human being. At times he is close to being a DEVIL, at times to SAINTHOOD. But his name doesn’t change, and to that name we ascribe the WHOLE LOT, GOOD and EVIL.
Socrates taught us: ‘KNOW THYSELF!” ― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelag
“I would like to call upon AMERICA to be more CAREFUL with its TRUST… and prevent those … because of short-sightedness and still others out of self-interest, from FALSELY USING the STRUGGLE FOR PEACE and FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE to lead you down a FALSE ROAD. Because they are TRYING to WEAKEN you; they are trying to DISARMyour strong and magnificent country in the face of this fearful THREAT. … I call upon you: ordinary working men of America … DO NOT LET YOURSELVES BECOME WEAK” – Solzhenitzyn
“We need to RE-DEFINE what it MEANS to be a HUMAN BEING in the MODERN world, re-invogorate the sense of spiritual from the federal level on down. RE-DISCOVER or find our “NEW AUTHENTICITY”, NEW sense of the spiritual in the public realm” giving people MEANING– FILLING up their sense of the ‘RELIGIOUS’ THROUGH POLITICS.” 1993, Hillary Clinton’s ”Politics of Meaning“:
“At the CORE of LIBERALISM is the SPOILED CHILD — MISERABLE, as all spoiled children are, UNSATISFIED, DEMANDING, ILL-DISCIPLINE, DESPOTIC and USELESS. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling BRATS.” – P.J. O’Rourke
H.L. Mencken, wrote in his book Prejudices: First Series,
“The urge to SAVE HUMANITY is almost always a FALSE front for the URGE to RULE”
RE-CREATING UTOPIA – “The GARDEN” (replacing-playing God)
Utopian ideologies, in their various forms and conceptions, sought and seek to RE-CREATE the GARDEN of EDEN
BUT this garden, be it built by Leninism or constructed by men and women who follow the teachings of other-worldly voices, CANNOT ESCAPE the FACTS of HUMAN NATURE – GREED, ARROGANCE, and a NEVER ENDING FOCUS ON SELF.
The left is determined to make America into utopia. But what is heaven on earth?
What is utopia EXACTLY? WHY is it so DANGEROUS when it APPEARS to GIVE EVERYONE EVERYTHING?
UTOPIA, that leftist DREAM of heaven on earth, a CONFORMED society of PERFECT order where everyone is EQUAL and thinks and acts ALIKE, is PROGRESSivism
It’s the WORLD STATE, where global citizenship and planetary spirituality merges into the “perfect centralized” system”. In this MYSTICAL PARADISE SOCIETY, NATURE, MAN IS GOD, PLACED ON the SAME PLANE, SPIRITUALLY EVOLVED and recognizing its collective consciousness.
The DESPOT RULERS of OUR PAST exhibited the SAME EGO-MANIA: the ATHEIST STATE, a product of EVOLVED MAN, was TOUTED AS GOD and the PARTY and its LEADERS were the voice of this DESPOTIC-STATE DEITY.
Modern “PROGRESSIVES” want to DISMANTLE our society and RE-CREATE“UTOPIA” … Fascist POLITICAL “REBIRTH” and “TRANSFORMATION” and “change you can believe in” …
Utopian “BLIND FAITH”in the “CULT of PROGRESS” is full of SACRED COWS, modern MYTHOLOGY of “STRANGE FIRE” burnt on the altar of their FAKE, DYSTOPIAN “RELIGION”…
Human attempts to RE-CREATE the “GARDEN” ALWAYS result in the “GULAG”
While utopians may differ in their optimism about the WORKABILITY of building utopias, they are ALL OPTIMISTIC about the POTENTIAL FOR HUMAN BEINGS to live in an utopian society. The utopian sees ongoing and SYSTEMATIC PROBLEMS in the established order, requiring a METHODICAL REFORMING of HUMAN SOCIAL REALITY. In an atmosphere that advocates good and deters evil, people will act infinitely BETTER, FAITH in the CONTINUING IMPROVEMENT of MAN.
FASCIST “CIVIC” RELIGION of “HUMANISTIC SOCIALISM” held a “FAITH” in the “GOODNESS”, IMPROVEMENT and “PERFECTIBILITY” of HUMANITY. The connection between what IS and what WILL BE involves the SOCIAL PROCESS, a CONVERSION of SOCIETY PROGRESSING with the aid of the common acceptance and constant use principles that define social relationships and human behavior.
UTOPIANISM is a “BLIND FAITH” and FORM of political-“progressive” IDOL-worship, CREATING “HEAVEN” WITHOUT GOD
The “NEW MAN” (pretend Gods, disciples divine)
Fascism #2 is “RE-BIRTH” and “RENEWAL”. Fascism blurs the lines between religion and politics, turning the “City of GOD” into the “City of MAN”. The “GOD-STATE” REPLACES GOD. “SALVATION” by SECULAR “SAINTS” SUBJECTED to the all-encompassing TOTALITARIAN “NANNY-STATE”.
“RE-CREATION”, RE-MAKING the “GARDEN of EDEN” INTO UTOPIAN, “PROGRESSIVE PARADISE”, is done through the “NEW” ADAM and EVE, a MYTHOLOGICAL “NEW MAN”
DISCIPLES BECOME “DIVINE” in the NEW “IDOL WORSHIP” in “POLITICAL PARADISE”
A new set of “COMMANDMENTS”, “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS” have been invented. “RIGHTEOUS” BEHAVIOR REWARDED. “EVIL” redefined. “HERETICS” and “WITCHES” ELIMINATED, “SCAPEGOATED” for the SINS of SOCIETY
“SOCIAL JUSTICE” becomes “VIRTUE”, excuses to seek out and exterminate all sorts of “VICES”
In order to bring about perfection, the INDIVIDUAL rights of human beings and his LACK of PERFECTION must be ERADICATED. SECULAR “SINS” must be ATONED FOR to bring about “REDEMPTION”
GOD MUST be REMOVED from the spectrum and REPLACED in MEN who will rule humanity, REBELS RE-CREATING NEW “GARDENS of EDEN” and BUILDING “TOWERS to HEAVEN”
“RE-BIRTH, RENEWAL and “REVOLUTION” is inherent to Fascist Religion and its “DISCIPLES” (learners)
REDEMPTION REQUIRES NEW, “RIGHTEOUS” DISCIPLES (learners)
OLD SINS will be REPLACED by a NEW RIGHTEOUSNESS, a FAITH in the FUTURE
“You must ENTIRELY REFASHION a people whom you wish to MAKE FREE, DESTROY ITS’ PREJUDICES, alter its habits, limit its necessities, ROOT UPits VICES, PURIFY ITS DESIRES.” – Robespierre
Fascist collective “spiritual REBIRTH” of the nation-state DESTROYS the “OLD”, creating the “NEW MAN” CHANGING HUMAN NATURE ITSELF, STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN.
HUMANITY is a “BLANK SLATE”. The PAST MUST BE “ERASED”.
HISTORY WILL BE “FORGOTTEN” and “RE-WRITTEN”
The French Revolution EVENTUALLY DESTROYED France’s OLD régime and led to the establishment of a NEW ORDER that promised to TOTALLY TRANSFORM SOCIETY.
The FRENCH REVOLUTION was the FIRST “FASCIST” REVOLUTION, the PRECURSOR of the “MODERN” TOTALITARIAN STATE.
The utopian image of humanity’s inherent nature believes it is INHERENTLY GOOD and virtuous [internal]. “SOCIETY” warps human behavior by creating EXTERNAL constraints on the practice of goodness because of this inherent nature, the potentiality of human beings to live in surroundings that perpetuate internal and external unity, stability and contentment logically follows. Utopians all start from the ASSUMPTION of SOCIETY as DESTROYER of POTENTIAL HUMAN VIRTUES, making a radically different alternative SUPERIOR.
By REMOVING PRESENT EVILS, CREATING EXTERNAL CONSTRAINTS ON the PRACTICE of GOODNESS, REALITY IS PERFECTED. The utopian, fascist “faith” in humanity is COMPLETELY OPTIMISTIC about the POTENTIAL of HUMAN BEINGS and the positive function of REASON in establishing social change, convinced that there are basic knowable laws which COULD RESTRUCTURE HUMAN NATURE and GIVE it MEANING
“Ms. Rodham asks the question what a radical is and provides the answer in Mr. Alinsky’s own words: “They are a people CREATING a NEW BRIDGE of MANKIND in BETWEEN the PAST of narrow nationalistic chauvinism and the HORIZON of a NEW MAN KIND – a PEOPLE of the WORLD”
“PROGRESS” through NEW-NESS and “CHANGE”, ASSUMES SPIRITUAL significance
Progressives argue that traditional “reaction” AGAINST change is a psychological reaction against “progress” by HERETICAL“DEPLORABLES”
Irrational “rage” and/or “phobias” by UNHOLY “WITCHES” trying to protect the “status quo” of unfair “PRIVILEGE”
LIBERAL RELIGION: “MAN DOES NOT LIVE LONG WITHOUT GODS”
Instead of serving the ONE, TRUE GOD (the First Commandment), humanity creates GOD SUBSTITUTES, IDOLS of worship. (the Second Commandment)
Belloc wrote: “The New Paganism is in process of building up a society of its OWN, wherein will be apparent two features novel in what used to be Christendom. Those two features have already appeared and will spread each in its own sphere, the one in the sphere of LAW – that is, of COERCIVE enactment – the other in the sphere of STATUS, that is, in the organization of SOCIETY … In the first sphere, that of positive law, the New Paganism has already begun to produce and cannot but produce more and more a mass of RESTRICTIVE LEGISLATION.”
The New Paganism utilizes the POWERS of the STATE, particularly the LAW and the COURTS, in order to CHANGE the FOUNDATIONS of a Christianized West and to PROMOTE paganism, even barbarism, as the BASIS of Western society. Barbarism then seeks to use the State to achieve an iron and TYRANNOUS ORDER, beginning with CRUSHING DISSENTERS like Christians, who believe they are to OBEY GOD rather than the STATE.”
Solzhenitsyn: “One does see in…the foundations of an eroded humanism and of any type of socialism: boundless MATERIALISM; freedom FROM religion and religious responsibility (which under communist regimes attains the stage of ANTI-religious dictatorship); concentration on social structures with an allegedly scientific approach. (This last is typical of both the Age of Enlightenment and of Marxism) It is NO ACCIDENT that all of communism’s rhetorical vows REVOLVE AROUND MAN (with a capital M) and his EARTHLY HAPPINESS.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
GOD MUST BE REMOVED to FULFILL HUMAN UTOPIAN “POSSIBILITIES” …
GOD is “PREVENTED”
GOD is “PRETENDED”
IDOLS are “INVENTED”
QUEST for POWER (The God of Government – playing God)
Fascists have a “FAITH” in the “COLLECTIVE”, manifested through the STATE and GOVERNMENT POWER in the pursuit of “PROGRESS”
PROGRESSIVISM is a UTOPIAN CIVIC RELIGION attempting to RECREATE the GARDEN, a CULT of PROGRESS brought about by the COLLECTIVE GOD-STATE
TOTALITARIANS worship “the COLLECTIVE”. Rousseau’s collective “general will” was always righteous because it was perfectly altruistic: the people acting for their own well-being. spiritual re-birth in the name of “progress”, a political CRUSADE led by the state. Woodrow Wilson thought history was a “scientific”, unfolding process towards “progress”. Religious meaning came through the “CULT” of political “progress”. American involvement in World War One was a CRUSADE to “save the world for democracy”
HUBRIS and/or NAIVETE hypocritically HIDES and MASKS a will to POWER
Utopian IDEALISM serves as bait to demand POWER, ignoring the REALISTIC dystopian switch – promise of “heaven” produces hell.
But, potential utopian REWARDS outweigh any dystopian RISKS. Certain in their “faith”, their utopian virtuous actions will necessarily reap virtuous results.
The ENDS justify the MEANS. POWER CORRUPTS – Everyone EXCEPT them
Any and ALL OPPOSITION in their QUEST for POWER must eventually be DESTROYED
Utopianism is a naïve, morally confused, relativistic and hypocritical worldview where the existential problems of EVIL and SIN are ignored and EXTERNALIZED in OTHERS, NEVER THEMSELVES
The GODLESS DEMONIZE critics as HERETICS, oblivious to their own messianic “religious” worldview. They are political PHARISEES, white-washed on the outside, rotten FRAUDS on the inside, hypocritically PROJECTING and MASKING their own sins on others
DIVIDE and CONQUER …
SOLZHENITSYN – WARNINGS to the WEST
“I would like to call upon America to be more CAREFUL with its TRUST to prevent those pundits who are attempting to establish fine degrees of JUSTICE and even finer legal shades of EQUALITY to PREVENT them from USING the struggle for peace and SOCIAL JUSTICE to lead you down a FALSE ROAD.
They are TRYING to WEAKEN YOU; they are trying to DISARM your STRONG and MAGNIFICENT country …”
DYSTOPIAN DYSFUNCTION – “SIN” and “EVIL” (Rejecting God’s “Reality”)
Utopians live in BLIND FAITH, failing to see that the PROBLEMS of “SIN” and “EVIL” are INHERENT to ALL of HUMANITY, manifested both INDIVIDUALLY and COLLECTIVELY
“POWER CORRUPTS. ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY. NO ONE is FIT to RULE” – Lord Acton
“Better to REIGN in HELL than SERVE in HEAVEN”. John Milton – “Paradise Lost”
“The DESCENT to HELL is EASY and those who begin by WORSHIPPING POWER soon worship EVIL” – C.S. Lewis
“Liberals hate religion because politics is a religion SUBSTITUTE for liberals and they can’t STAND the COMPETITION” – Ann Coulter
Some IMAGINE if we got rid of religion, nations and greed, we would STOP KILLING EACH OTHER. NO. We would just FIND ANOTHER, different reason to kill another
“People are guilty of “NOT KNOWing THYSELF”.“If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to SEPARATE THEM from the REST of US and DESTROY THEM. BUT the LINE DIVIDING GOOD and EVIL CUTS THROUGH the HEART of EVERY HUMAN BEING. And who is willing to destroy a piece of HIS OWN heart?” – Solzhenitsyn
“UTOPIA” is “NOWHERE” on this earth
Only MORALLY CONFUSED, CLUELESS and FOOLISH people can IGNORE, DENYand minimize the HISTORICAL REALITY of EVIL. The “City of Man” can NEVER be the “City of God“. We are constantly FOOLED … AGAIN. Evil is the DECEPTIVE PARASITE of good and “truth”
Claiming evil is ONLY an “EXTERNAL”, “ACCIDENTAL”, “CIRCUMSTANTIAL” and/or “SUPERFICIAL” aspect of HUMAN NATURE, BEHAVIOR and HISTORY is WISHFUL THINKING and DELUSION – DENIAL of “REALITY”
DYSFUNCTION is potentially “EVERYWHERE” – the tragic “NORM”
Many-most people are BLIND and FOOLED to what should seem OBVIOUS –DYSFUNCTION and EVIL is a “REAL” and INTRINSIC part of HUMAN NATURE and HISTORY. ALL of HUMANITY CAN BE and is REGULARLY “INSANE” and POTENTIALLY “EVIL”
“SIN” and “EVIL” is not just confirmed by our HISTORICAL EXPERIENCES, but evidenced in the DEPTHS of our human condition of EXISTENCE
We are GUILTY of “SINS” (individual acts) because our “SIN” (collective condition) reveals our GUILT.
Dostaevsky said we are ALL guilty of guilt. Reinhold Niebuhr remarked we are unequal in sins but ALL equal of guilt.
“Sin” might sound “weird”, but it is the greatest “fact” of history to those not blind to see –
“Mankind is HIS OWN MOST VEXING PROBLEM”.
Faye Voshell: “The New Paganism is dead set AGAINST ANY RESTRAINTS WHATSOEVER.”
“Christians, however, know HUMAN WILL is CAPABLE of GREAT EVIL, particularly when it brooks NO RESTRAINT. They know human will MUST BE RESTRAINED by allegiance to a HIGHER law than the state.
They know the New Paganism is horribly REGRESSIVE and inevitably OPPRESSIVE, as are ALL ideologies that permit the absolute ascendency of HUMAN WILL, be it the will of an ELITE CLASS of individuals.
The ineluctable DESCENT of the … revolution are revelatory of a TRULY BARBAROUS RELIGION … OVERWHELMED by the AVID WORSHIPPERS of the NEW GODS … FAR WORSE GODS ARISE to DEMAND WORSHIP
As Helaire Belloc himself concluded: “MEN DO NOT LIVE LONG WITHOUT GODS; but when the GODS of the NEW PAGANISM come they will not be merely INSUFFICIENT, as were the gods of Greece, nor merely FALSE; they will be EVIL …FOOLISHLY EXPECTING SATISFACTION’.”
SLAVIC SOCRATES: “Progressives are essentially SPOILED CHILDREN, adolescent, politically-correct “pin-heads” who pathologically seek to DESTROY the past, toward a narcissistic, nihilistic path to “utopian NOWHERE“. Progressives are totalitarian twits, despotic dimwits, freedom hating fascists, power loving, a-moral political perverts, wolves CAMOUFLAGED as sheep, liars incapable of facing truth or reality, ignoring the unintended consequences of their own folly, a CHILD-ish MENACE to our traditional civil society. Spiritually bankrupt sociopaths jam their warped, IDOL-atrous political religion of dystopian delusion. We are all “victims” of liberal lunacy that persecutes “heretics” who question their pseudo-religious “idolatry”, wishful thinking, delusion and “madness”..
But that’s MY “TRAGIC” OPINION … BUT what are the “FACTS”? …
The “tragic” consequences: “They are CORRUPT: they have done abominable works; there is NONE that doeth GOOD. The doctrines of atheism, materialism, economic determinism, class, class liquidation, class dictatorship and inevitable PROGRESS are FALSE and DEADLY, “SACRED COWS” of POLITICAL IDOL-ATRY.
SORRY … BUT that’s HISTORY … X-TREME … BENEATH and BEYOND! …
DYSTOPIA DEEP (The Enemy-Devil Within)
On some level we are ALL UTOPIANS. We recognize the “good side” of life and its potentialities. It is impossible not to. But it is equally impossible not to recognize the “tragic” realities of life.
Why does “utopia” becomes “dystopia”? Please, someone EXPLAIN.
HOUSTON, WHAT is “THE PROBLEM”?
Good and bad are TRAGICALLY MIXED UP
Utopians fight GREED with ENVY, spend other people’s money, resist RACISM with PREJUDICE of their own, intolerantly enforce tolerance, fight CRIME with LAWLESSNESS. “LOVE” is “TAINTED” with selfishness and HATE
COMPASSION begets CRUELTY. Our judgments lack judgment. INTELLIGENCE lacks “SENSE” and/or WISDOM. “Justice” justifies all sorts of INjustice. Child-ish “FEELINGS” will defeat adult “FACTS”. “VIRTUES” spawn and EXCUSE “VICES”.
REALITY is IGNORED.
Utopians IMAGINE simple solutions to complex problems, blind tothe tragically PROBLEMATIC nature of life. Their “solutions” have UNINTENDED consequences.
Socially engineered economic “SECURITY” creates DEPENDENCE, DEBT, DESTRUCTION and DEMISE.
Our EDUCATION “DUMBS us down”
Political “correctness” and “social justice” spawns cruelty in the name of “IN-justices”.
Utopians are CONFUSED and blind to life’s tragic contradictions, flaws and hypocrisy. Their clueless,“upside down” worldview dangerously ignores the reality of DYSTOPIA – good intentions with disastrous results.
“WE KNOWSO MUCH THAT WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND!” – Jose Ortega y Gasset
Utopians VAINLY IMAGINE social solutions to COSMIC problems.
A tragic world view recognizes “trade offs” when dealing with life’s tragic problems such as poverty, homelessness, crime,inequality, etc. Trade-offs recognize it is possible to remediate and reduce human misery, never entirely “solve” them. Utopians see life’s possibilities for better, but ignore its tragic limitations, our capacity for worse.
There is no fully satisfactory “cure” to our human “disease”.
UTOPIANS think they would be BETTER OFF if it were RID of “The TRAGIC”. Utopians are AGAINST ANY LIMITS WHATSOEVER.
The “tragic” know human will is CAPABLE of GREAT EVIL, particularly when it brooks NO RESTRAINT. Human will must be RESTRAINED by allegiance to a HIGHER law than the SELF. The “new” gods of transformational, “collective salvation” are REGRESSIVE and inevitably OPPRESSIVE, based on NONSENSE and NOTHINGNESS leading us NOWHERE.
It is when humanity attempts to “PLAY GOD” when the greatest evils occurs. The building of promised HEAVEN on EARTH produces HELL, PARADISE PERVERTED – VAIN ATTEMPTS to RE-CREATE “The GARDEN” result in “The GULAG”.
Delusional DREAMS turn into NIGHTMARES.
“Mankind is his OWN most vexing problem” – Reinhold Niebuhr
The ‘”ENEMY” LIES WITHIN
We are told to “KNOW THYSELF”. DO WE? OR DO WE “FOOL OURSELVES”
DESTINATION DYSTOPIA (lost sheep)
Much so-called advancements of “civilization” reflect the POLAR EXPLORER PEARY’s ILLUSION
Peary’s Expedition traveled NORTH, but was ASTONISHED to find that he was much farther SOUTH than earlier. He toiled all day toward the NORTH on an iceberg drawn SOUTHward by ocean currents.
Humanity IMAGINES utopia through increasing mastery over the forces of nature
“PROGRESS” is “PERCEPTION”, NOT “REALITY”
WHAT REALLY “CHANGES”?
Human nature is UNchanging
The “SAME OLD” is just RE-ARRANGED
IS “CHANGE” an “ILLUSION”?
OUR “SINFUL STAINS” STILL REMAIN
Utopian external perceptions HIDE our inherent, dystopian reality. Material and scientific “progress”is SHALLOW and SUPERFICIAL
Utopian idealism (what should be) MASKS tragic reality. (how things are)
We are FOOLED … AGAIN
“MEET the NEW BOSS … SAME as the OLD BOSS”
“UTOPIA” INEVITABLY and TRAGICALLY MORPHS INTO DYSTOPIA
The “UTOPIAN QUEST” ALWAYS leads to DYSTOPIAN NOWHERE
The “GARDEN” turns into the “GULAG”
PROMISED HEAVEN PRODUCES HELL
The true ROOT of EVIL is IDOL WORSHIP – when “REBELS” REJECT and seek to REPLACE and SEEK and “IMAGINE” SUBSTITUTES for GOD.
The PROPHET ISAIAH DESCRIBES HUMANITY as LOST “SHEEP GONE ASTRAY, EACH ONE GOING THERE OWN WAY”. HUMANITY WANDERS AIMLESSLY, STUBBORN and CERTAIN in THEIR “DESTINATION”
Socrates taught us: ‘KNOW THYSELF!” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelag
DO WE? OR WHAT is “the ALTERNATIVE”?
FOOLED AGAIN … BAIT and SWITCH
DELUSION … DECEPTION … DESTRUCTION … DICTATORSHIP … DYSTOPIA
The RULE of UN-INTENDED CONSEQUENCES: “HEAVEN BECOMES HELL” …
Human attempts to RE-CREATE the “GARDEN” always result in the “GULAG”
UTOPIA is NOWHERE … NOTHINGNESS (Nihilism) … NARCISSISM … NONSENSE
We WILL“EVOLVE” HIGHER and HIGHER, towards what, we do NOT KNOW. HUMANITY MADE ITSELF GOD, WORSHIPPING FALSE IDOLS in the “CULT” of “PROGRESS”. Wishful thinking and the god of DELUSION. Critics of utopian “faith” have good reason to be SUSPICIOUS – progress towards WHAT? The road to HEL Lis paved with good intentions. Utopianism is a “BAITand SWITCH”- its causes and crusades have resulted in history’s worst cases of destruction and disaster.
“IF there is NO GOD, EVERYTHING is PERMITTED” – FALSE GODS SHOW “UTOPIA” is IMPOSSIBLE.
MAN PLANS. GOD LAUGHS
“WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE and the PEOPLE IMAGINE a VAIN THING?” GOD LAUGHS … in DERISION – Psalm 2
“The FOOL hath said in his heart, THERE is NO GOD.” – Psalm 14
“The LORD is the BEGINNING of WISDOM and KNOWLEDGE of the HOLY leads to UNDERSTANDING” – Proverbs 9
OUR END “DESTINATION” is DYSTOPIAN NONSENSE and NOWHERE BECAUSE OUR STARTING POINT (GOD) is NON-EXISTENT and OFF.
DYSTOPIANS are “SURPRISED” BECAUSE THEY MISS the OBVIOUS.
“IF there is NO GOD, EVERYTHING is PERMITTED”
then “WITHOUT GOD, NOTHING is POSSIBLE“
AYE CARUMBA! – famous philosopher
DELUSION … and DELIVERANCE – A Message in a Bottle (Bible?)
DYSTOPIA is BAD NEWS. IS THERE ANY “GOOD NEWS”? The Police song describes us ALL as REFUGEES in need of RESCUE, SHIPWRECKED in the “STORM of LIFE”..
WE are ALL “WRECKS” … “REFUGEES” … in need of “RESCUE” … seeking “REDEMPTION” …
WHY is THAT and WHAT can we DO about those “feelings” and “facts”?
The THEISTIC WORLDVIEW and “ANSWER” is “DECEIVING BUT TRUE … BEYOND TRAGEDY”
