I don’t feel that people hurt because they are unenlightened. I feel they are unenlightened because they do not hurt.
I live in America. A stronghold of religious weirdness, and quite feral about it. I hear India has cows. Poor people who break and deform their own bodies to get daily bread. We do it here also, just not for faith and with more refined methods. We should be proud of ourselves. Advanced self destruction. They aren’t unlike us. Their attitudes are just more obvious. The holy men nod their heads sagely or argue like fishmongers wives. The unthinking do what they were raised to believe they should do, and the cranks abuse everyone. Ours is full of rationality! The Rishis feel they are too, and they criticise the west.
Maybe this illusion of sanity is just the psychosis of consensus, and nobody has handled it well.
I intend to lead an uprising. The agenda? That we are having no uprising. Not sure it will take off? Indeed. People want to be blindly unaware, even most dissenters. We will have a Church of Antiantiismism. We are anti being anti, and our ism is knowing we have an ism. Have you heard there’s a schism in the Church of Antiantiismism? A schism that there is no schism. They want one, but it’s just not there. So the schism is in agreement. We can’t fail for success. We are all unified behind the schism. Who’s not with me?
All hail nothing! Praise the nothing! We are all popes of nothing.
I love the sound of breaking glass, but not as much as the sound of breaking minds.
