There is a lot of use of Matrix metaphors around: the blue pill is that which keeps you deluded, not seeking the truth -- while the red pill almost kills you as you find out what happens. The black pill is seen as a metaphor for despair, and engendering despair is the motivation for an acceleration of degeneration among the elite.
The enemy has achieved 15-20 years worth of pre 2020 gains in just over 6 months. It is highly demoralising. No getting around that.
I would assume most of us had a good read on how slowly we were losing ground before this year, but that timetable is now completely out the window.
Its time to realise that we are not solving anything ourselves. There isn’t a single institution of power that we have even a token voice in. This battle was over on the temporal level long before any of us were even born.
To quote Aragorn from ‘Lord of the Rings’ – ‘Some evil gives speed to these creatures, sets its will against us’.
We cant fight against supernatural forces with secular reasoning, logic or military power.
This is only solved with Divine intervention, and for that we all need to be praying for it. The persecution of Christians was highest under Emperor Diocletian, but the Empire was soon Christian under Constantine. It will take something similar to solve our current predicament (unless we are entering the end times).
By all means we should continue to keep the fires of knowledge burning as best we can, and you have done well on that front Adam, so I do hope you continue.
I noted yesterday that the masks are slipped and they are stupid, but one cannot say that. They have shed their skinsuits, but they still demand, require obedience and love. One cannot think wrong. One cannot consider that this generation is evil.
The reason they hate the truth and are burning the books is because this generation's elite is precisely that. Evil. They don't want humans (to switch metaphors), they want Orcs. Orcs may be violent and stupid, but they obey the orders of their dark Lord.
We are not to be such.
Psalm 78:1-8A Maskil of Asaph.
78 Listen, O my people, to my [b]instruction;
Incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings of old,
3 Which we have heard and known,
And our fathers have told us.
4 We will not conceal them from their children,
But tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,
And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done.
5 For He established a testimony in Jacob
And appointed a law in Israel,
Which He commanded our fathers
That they should [c]teach them to their children,
6 That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born,
That they may arise and tell them to their children,
7 That they should put their confidence in God
And not forget the works of God,
But keep His commandments,
8 And not be like their fathers,
A stubborn and rebellious generation,
A generation that did not [d]prepare its heart
And whose spirit was not faithful to God.
There is some good here. Every generation has its evil. Every generation has to repent. And in every Generation there are
37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren, what shall we do?” 38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” 40 And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation!” 41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. 42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
43 Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and [h]signs were taking place through the apostles. 44 And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; 45 and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. 46 Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding [m]to their number day by day those who were being saved.
In my view, there is a sin of this time for those who can see and that is despair. If you look at Adam's piece (I quoted from a comment before) then you will find that those who can see are seeing the increas in degeneration. Wilder sums it up, but I would add one thing: the Russian Revolution was engineered by the Germans, who put Lenin on a train to St Petersburg. To destroy the Russian military powers, and reduce their war to two fronts.
In his quote is what I think we’ve been seeing now. The “quick satiety with good” is sometimes what drives us toward True Evil®, though in Paris in 1789 just like in Russia in 1917 it was the greed exploited by the communists to convince people that the terror and murders would be what led to a prosperous future.
In the last sixty days I’ve seen a lot of evil in the videos taken during the riots. Murder rates are up in those cities. Portland normally has 30 or so murders a year, but in the last two months there have been twenty. That doesn’t make the news.
The riots are described as peaceful protests. To mention that the lawlessness and rampant evil accompanying it has cost dozens of lives and since more black people have died as a result of the protests than the number of unarmed black people killed by cops last year. They’ve resulted in half a billion dollars in damage to Minneapolis alone, but that doesn’t account for the lowered property values. And what about all of the uprooted lives?
That sort of destruction, especially in the middle of an economic collapse is devastating. Inciting and participating in this riots was a choice, and those who chose to riot were doing nothing short of evil, in service of that same evil force that had taken Moscow early in the twentieth century, though this time because times were good and they were bored.
(You have to read that article. There is a Nazgul coffee joke that does not fit in here). But note this: we don't have to be evil. We can refuse, recuse, ignore the insults and stand. Once again, Israel Folau is an example.
I have hope, and I also think God has a sense of humour. Our temporal rulers are trying to eradicate a virus, and pushing fear in a time of depression. Locally, it is not working. No one uses their stinking trackers, no one gets tested.
And if the borders break (they will) the rulers rightly fear that they will lose power or they will do what that evil troll who runs Victoria has done: shut the state down, ensuring a local depression.
The more converged corporations are losing in this. Bigly.
When you count in the fact that their merchandising sales for the Devil Mouse Wars franchise have absolutely CRATERED, and the colossal failure of the multi-billion-dollar Galaxy's Edge theme park, it is a near certainty that the Devil Mouse has made a significant LOSS on the franchise, nearly 8 years after they acquired LucasFilm.
Even a behemoth like Disney cannot absorb losses like that indefinitely - especially in a time when virtually ALL of its most profitable, but capital-intensive and consumer-driven, divisions are all shut down.
It is becoming rapidly apparent that we have a very great deal to thank Corona-chan for, because she has thoroughly upended the financial positions of a considerable number of the world's biggest and most heavily converged corporations. Those companies are being forced, VERY much against their will, to start making pro-consumer decisions again.
DO not despair. Our enemies are stupid, and the Broke Lying Marxists among them are ensuring that they become one with the Hittites and Soviet.
God will refine his church. And he is still calling people to be saved from this evil generation.
