The purposes of gods and golden rules

The purposes of gods and golden rules
Barry Bright May 5, 2017

As usual, this got me started:

The problem with the ‘golden rule’ is that most sheeple and many people don’t mind being slaves to one form of authoritarianism or another and thus have no problem voting their neighbors into the same slavery.

‘Everything’ won’t just ‘work out,’ because we let morons vote. We also let sheeple vote for a check or a job or some other benefit and we let whores enhance revenue and protect the state and its laws for a check and a retirement plan and we let our soldiers go to foreign lands to kill for democracy and power and resources and one insane philosophy or another that says its god should be the one to get to burn billions, including little kids and babies, alive in fire forever.

Things ‘worked out’ in this country for 200+ years as the slaves hoed tobacco and picked cotton and in the Soviet Union where 70 million, more or less, were murdered by human ignorance.

Everyone who ‘believes in’ a divine being is ‘religious,’ can’t have one without the other. Once you say “There’s a divine being,” you usually start asking what it really is and really wants which history shows leads to all kinds of problems.

Not that religion doesn’t have its purposes, the elites have always used it as a way to keep the slaves working while waiting for paradise in the next life.

Still works. Before or after that the priests who usually work for the kings, or vice versa, set about writing down ‘the rules‘ all the plebes have to exist by which of course usually include “Obey the magistrates appointed over you because they were appointed by god,” and “All that happens is ‘god’s will‘ anyway so you may as well show up for work today,” and “Pay your taxes, to Caesar, or whatever, cause all god wants is your soul,” and on and on. Get the idea?

What especially amuses me is those who don’t live any more of a ‘christian’ life than my dog does, who will jump out of their pants to defend a belief system that obviously doesn’t mean much at all to them except as a way to escape eternal punishment or to gain ‘eternal life,’ whatever that might really mean.

I’ve read the new testament‘ a couple times and have been studying it more lately, and those parts of the ancient tribal propaganda I can stand to read, and the more I learn of it the more absurd and disgusting it becomes to me.

It’s really funny how the alleged writers of the new testament couldn’t agree on the genealogy of Jesus or on what happened after his alleged resurrection. How our own governments do the same basic thing the ancient Hebrews or whatever did, call on god or our modern god, democracy, another false god(and don’t miss the comments on that link), in the process of murdering those whose land and resources we seek to obtain or obtain for others.

Most sheeple and people have a very simplistic view of what their chosen ‘belief system’ is or is supposed to be and often can’t cite a single verse of the ancient tribal propaganda of whatever tribe to prove their version, sub-version or subversion one way or another.

The slightly smarter believers can regurgitate a few words of scripture or maybe carry on a real conversation about their theology but still refuse to acknowledge that it is what it is: a collection of writings, fiction, mythology, legend, propaganda, made up or slightly ‘based in real events’(like a modern movie or novel) over a long period of time by people who shared a similar mindset, that of seeking to control others and the world around them and create a more perfect world order under their version, sub-version or subversion of what ‘they’ consider to be ‘right’ or ‘moral.’

I call this the busybody gene. We see it in religious folk and in communists and fascists and in all sorts of other isms.

We do need basic laws and all governments seek to enforce a basic morality, usually for the benefit of the state and those who run it. The elites always consider us to be livestock. There is nothing more important to understand than that.

The purpose of the law‘ should be to keep real criminals out of society’s mainstream. Thus we should have a militia force whose sole purpose is to closely watch/regulate the governments and send elected, hired and appointed malefactors to the work camps when they seek to enslave us. We need police who understand their first allegiance is to human Liberty and our Bills of Rights. We need soldiers who know the same and who will uphold their oaths and put the liberty of the people before corporate profit.

We need to bring the troops home and have them hunt our real enemies who have long been here for our domestic blood enemies with white skin do not simply disagree with us they are waging war on human liberty and our Bills of Rights.

Waking up is hard to do and I sometimes wonder if our life spans weren’t shortened so that too many wouldn’t exist long enough to figure things out.

Long experience has shown me that often all one has to do to be labeled an asshole or ‘know-it-all’ is to act as if one attempts to know anything at all. The average sheeple would rather die than think or take on personal responsibility for the world around it.

And far worse is that rare individual who has the courage to say what will be required. Few on the ‘right’ or the ‘left’ can stomach this, especially since their stomachs are so full nowadays of steak and ice cream and the processed foods that fill our over-stuffed super markets.

When our Founders wrote of the ‘pursuit of happiness’ I think they meant it was an individual choice, not an idea of what happiness should be enforced from above. Those who seek to enforce their idea of ‘happiness’ on all deserve no respect, whether they do it at the point of a gun or at the threat of eternal punishment. Simple truth.

However we do have to ‘educate’ or rather indoctrinate each generation of blank slates, children, in a love of Liberty or they will fall into the same trap humanity has sought to escape since someone invented a ‘new cave order’ by rolling malefactors around in the fire for all to see.

It’s hard to worry about one’s ego when one is sitting in prison for breaking some law written by some authoritarian or another that forbade possessing some thing that they didn’t think we should possess. Whose ‘ego’ is winning then?

Ever notice that a lot of ‘higher thought’ or ‘morality’ is just stuff someone made up according to whatever situation they found themselves in? Nowadays we have shelves full of ‘self help’ books and an internet full of memes that illustrate this beautifully.

What should we already be doing about it so we can live in a free country they lie to us and tell us we exist in, when we so obviously don’t?

What are we but little bits and pieces that we pick up over time? A sad fact is most struggle their entire existences in this world to pick up as little as possible. I’ve long had a natural curiosity, and I developed a natural distrust of anyone who expects me to ‘believe’ what ‘they’ would have me believe simply because they claim it’s ‘right.’

As a teenager that had attended a rural southern Baptist church all my life I got tired of seeing my peers get ‘re-dedicated’ and re-saved by a god they obviously didn’t really understand and would probably never put forth the effort to while the adults were telling me obvious bullshit because to them I was still a child, or in reality, because the average adult is still a child.

I remember one cousin, after we had reached legal age, if I remember correctly, discussing the rural folklore that claimed the cattle in the field bowed down at midnight on Christmas Eve. I don’t know of anyone who ever went to look.

An age old irony of so-called human civilization is that in our efforts to become civilized, if indeed that’s what most even seek, we can’t fathom that the height of civilization is to learn to leave others the hell alone and that would include not forcing others to lie about what they think we are or do.

The real golden rule is to not do to another what they don’t want done to them unless they have proven themselves incapable of existing among others without harming others or their property.

But I expect it’ll be a long time before the tool-using monkeys get smart enough to apply it on a regular basis. Religion is really cultural, in the way ‘the scriptures’ are interpreted and lived in each generation and in each individual. I’ve sat around enough campfires listening to various versions, sub-versions and subversions to know this to be true.Image result for common laws of all religions

Change is coming, however slowly.

It’ll probably take a few more wars over resources or power or over whose sadistic god will get to burn billions alive in fire forever before they figure it out.

Antifa Chick Goes to Turkey With Muslim Loverboy, Gets Raped and Beaten

FK – So why do we tolerate this trash, I mean the trash that wants to let the fundies in our country so they can(maybe) get them to vote commie(for a govt. check)????

Even mainstream ‘conservatives’ are finally seeing what I and others have been screaming at them for years:

America’s Second Civil War

FK – I’m not sure how much ‘ego’ will have to do with that.

And it’s still one insanity fighting another for the control of the hearts and minds of the human species.

And of course he misses the fact that the ‘first’ civil war was the last war fought over Liberty and the bad guys won and we’ve been reading their history books ever since.

I really like what this guy had to say(from the comment section mentioned above):

So then Plutocracy is the right word, a subset of Oligarchy.

The problem must be human nature down to its core. I’m always fascinated with how human psychology changes between the individual and the collective. Man as a collective creature behaves much more irrationally, as the collective IQ drops substantially and man feels part of a group, thus exonerating himself of responsibility and sense. A sort of halo effect. As you say, we have collectively allowed the usurpation itself.

People collectively look for a sheperd. People give up their power too easily in a group. Also self-interest has always been a problem, the “agency problem”. Democracy, like Communism, is proving to be too ideal given our behaviour. We are also far from ready for Anarchism, which is kind of alot like Communism if one really thinks about it, except there is the anarcho-capitalist flavour which I prefer. But I’ll admit, humanity is not yet ready for that either. We can’t even handle Captialism. All these are ideals, but the Hegellian Dialectic has trapped us into a pendulum from one extreme to the other. And here we are swinging yet again. When one gets tired of the predictability of the pendulum, you start trading on it and making money out of it.

Democracy, like religion, is another form of manipulation:

The word they used was ‘unalienable.’

And don’t miss this segment:

FK – Remember when the official deficit was less than a trillion dollars?

The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiters of our rights. WE ARE!

And from another ‘democracy’:

The false God of democracy: why we need an unelected House of Lords

God is a Human Eater – Vatican Suppressed Scriptures – Gospel of Philip

FK – Most ‘believers’ couldn’t pronounce ‘christ consciousness’ much less explain what that might mean. And what would ‘allah consciousness’ mean?

Most of them are concrete thinkers. Most of them will be sorely disappointed if their sadistic bronze age god doesn’t burn billions, including babies and little kids, the vast majority of humankind, alive in fire forever. Those versions and sub-versions that practice infant baptism aren’t doing it for symbolic reasons. Protestants don’t cajole little kids into “gettin’ saved” for symbolic reasons. Most of them don’t even know what ‘symbolic’ means. Believing in it is condoning it. That’s how that works.

We’re still a very primitive species and we still exist in a very dark and dangerous age.

The primary goal of the powers that want to always be is to always keep the slaves working, willingly, not by force. Force is too much trouble. Give them a false promise of ‘paradise in the next life’ and nowadays a big screen and enough steak and ice cream and the mules will keep plowing without much complaint. Throw in just a little fear via the IRS and other Fed nazis just to keep things balanced for that minority that always looks around and starts asking inappropriate/inconvenient questions.

This is no different from modern ancient tribal propaganda versions called the NIV or whatever and on and on: someone’s ‘interpretation/version of what ‘god’ is or should be. Only children blindly ‘believe’ in anyone’s ‘inspired’ false reality. Think ‘this was inspired by true events’ that we often see at the beginning of books and movies. It’s still largely someone’s fiction.

Politics is human nature and vice versa. Religion of course is or stems from politics, the need to control or the need to be free of control. Buddha claimed he was trying to free people from the suffering that stems from wanting the things of this world, more or less. Yeshua or whatever allegedly was doing basically the same thing which tells me he was probably influenced by similar teachings. He and his apostles were ascetics. What did the Buddha do at first: starve himself and seek visions, just as Yeshua was doing for 40 days before he was tempted by the devil or his own imagination/hallucinations?

And it’s all someone’s ‘opinion.’

After water and food sex is the strongest animal desire. Early civilizations saw the need to control this because of the dangers of STDs and fatherless/orphaned children to any society. Those who created the modern welfare state knew exactly what the outcome would be. It wasn’t done to help anyone but to create inter-generational parasites that could be dependable constituents for the demonscat party and thus the globalist elites: ignorant easily manipulated masses.

Thus we have the version or sub-version of the creation myth where the ‘original sin,'(not named until thousands of years later) was sex outside of marriage. Thus we have a ‘savior,’ a crazy monk, that allegedly said ‘looking at a woman in lust is adultery’ and ‘fornicators shall not inherit the kingdom of god’ or whatever.

Male and female circumcision is about stifling these animal instincts and as he said, sanitation, in a culture where the sheeple didn’t bathe as often as we moderns might not think they should have.

How can one ‘agree’ with ‘the truth’ when it’s not defined? How does this fit with being punished for ‘eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil?’ Neither ‘good’ nor ‘evil’ is ever properly defined other than being ‘obedient’ is good, being a good slave, and not doing so, not blindly following orders, which is an evil in itself, perhaps the most dangerous one, is ‘bad.’

I rest my case. It’s about keeping the slaves working.

No sacred cows, or a new global Bill of Rights

More on the insanities:

FK – Most sheeple are simple-minded children and are looking for some savior or another to alleviate them of personal responsibility for what happens in the world around them. See Trump and the Marxist mutt.

Questioning these ‘heavenly’ or ‘earthly’ gods throws their little minds into a tailspin. Accepting blind faith is forfeiting individual thought and replacing it with emotion. Thus questioning any of these gods modern or ancient shuts their little brains down and makes it nearly impossible to get them to question anything other than what they’ve been spoon fed.

Believers make good slaves. That’s why the elites tolerate and encourage religion.

I really hate to have to waste time on this garbage. But I’ve been forced to finally see it as a large part of the problem and why we as a species can’t seem to find freedom or even any real desire for it.

Like many of the beliefs and rites of Romanism, transubstantiation was first practiced by pagan religions. The noted historian Durant said that belief in transubstantiation as practiced by the priests of the Roman Catholic system is “one of the oldest ceremonies of primitive religion.” The Story Of Civilization, p. 741. The syncretism and mysticism of the Middle East were great factors in influencing the West, particularly Italy. Roman Society From Nero To Marcus Aurelius, Dill. In Egypt priests would consecrate mest cakes which were supposed to be come the flesh of Osiris. Encyclopedia Of Religions, Vol. 2, p. 76. The idea of transubstantiation was also characteristic of the religion of Mithra whose sacraments of cakes and Haoma drink closely parallel the Catholic Eucharistic rite. Ibid. The idea of eating the flesh of deity was most popular among the people of Mexico and Central America long before they ever heard of Christ; and when Spanish missionaries first landed in those countries “their surprise was heightened, when they witnessed a religious rite which reminded them of communion…an image made of flour…and after consecration by priests, was distributed among the people who ate it…declaring it was the flesh of deity…” Prescott’s Mexico, Vol. 3. – The Mystery of the Eucharist

You’re not gonna get beamed up child. It’s time to wake up and grow up and take personal responsibility for the world you exist in. The ancient tribal propaganda isn’t gonna save you. It wasn’t even written for you.
