Axiom 923 - The Voice of Man
Is There Hope for the World?
Leaving aside the relatively effortless joys and pleasures of childhood, what we like to call our happiness requires that we make decisions that constitute great departures from anything that we have become accustomed to demanding of ourselves, particularly with respect to other people or social structures or both.
If the "course of true love never did run smooth," nor does the nature, trials and tribulations of human growth and certainly not under the rather apoplectic aegis of what has constituted most societies for arguably tens of thousands of years of what we have concluded is a rather less fortuitous exchange of credulity and safety, nature and reason than we might often be left with any occasion to question, except perhaps when we join in to the global chorus of "What the fuck are we thinking?"
Spring is here after a long hard winter for many. And this Easter literally billions of presumably sane human beings will get a Christmas booster vaccination of religion by taking the beatific birth of the Christ child and publicly humiliating, torturing and murdering Him, the better to wash their troubled minds in the boundless springs of the "Blood of the Lamb."
And this is, may I remind you, no piddling religious cult.
It has sustained itself for over two thousand years. This likely why so many hundreds of millions of religious people have so much faith in it. It is hard to point to any other story quite that old, much less one that can right your relationship with an Heavenly Father where one would do as well to punch a nine inch rusty nail through the head than make the attempt to right one's relationship with a father or mother who would presume to make your life eternally guaranteed in the celestial real estate market in the sky by deferring to a God the Father whose love is as apt to offer one the balm of heavenly consolation as justify the wanton genocide of hundreds of millions of innocent people, instrumental in every wave of which heavenly slaughter were the kinds of minds who would see it as nothing that whole armies of so-called medical doctors have not a care about the primary source of whole human health and wealth - whole human food.
For such people the holy wafer at communion offers far more.
And so we must if reluctantly approach this altar and ask before the assembled masses the question on everybody's mind: Why?
Well, for starters, if you are a Catholic, some public executions are not so bad. They can even be divinely creative and moral when they involved the purest possible child. Since that is not you, you have to suffer. And if that were you, you would have to suffer.
So either way you have to suffer.
With logic like that I am surprised we are not all wearing kilts and sacrificing our first born to a raging orgy of incendiary stupidity every fortnight.
But religion had and has a higher purpose than even this:
Money. And, more specifically, debt.
Here is how it works.
1) You are hurt
2) Life is full of hurt
3) Life is full of hurt because you did something wrong
4) Religion is how you fix the wrong thing but not fixing anything but to whom you give all the responsibility for fixing it - which is not, as you may have guessed, you.
Even Christians hate church.
But they love the faith. Some even flatter themselves that they can make an adequate distinction between the structure of the church and the spirit of their faith. How commendable.
One Christian (an artist) went out of her way to let me know that her art is to glorified the Father and not what she called "His creation."
This is another artifact of many religions - nature is not a suitable form of their God or Gods, who is or who are transcendent to nature and indeed to all human concepts.
One might wonder as to how this God has any relevance to anyone at all and the answer is simple - faith.
It is an easy patter, really. And even as I write it and I see how easy it would be fall into it on quite a perpetual basis.
Thus we can revise the bullet points on the bones of religion:
1) Religion hurts you, especially children, penetrating so deep as to evacuate like a mushroom cloud just how this has happened into the very stratosphere of the hell into which you must descend if you commit apostasy, a euphemism for retaining like a trampled rose bush any surviving desire to grow your whole mind back.
2) Religion is quite painless after the initial insult of so debt-ravaged a Catholic cybernetic-industrial society - a society riven with arbitrary debt loads foisted upon every surviving form of human language and even cellular communication.
A credit card loan is what is known as an unsecured loan where only the credit car holder signs anything (so there is no legitimate contract) and the money borrowed is literally created out of thin air by a computer. Not only does the card holder pay the debt with labour whose remuneration (money) is also fiat debt loaned to the labourer at interest, while the signature with which this whole bizarre business is christened is worth more, arguably, than all the money in the world. The bill that card holders get is not a bill, in fact. It is a receipt for the money held in trust by the signature that of a collateral supplied by the body and mind of the signor, a body and mind that is secured where this "loan" is not by the birth certificate and one's name in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS.
It is same in international law. Treaties that are not in all capitals can be dissolved and TREATIES in all capitals cannot be. Recently England entered into the European Union by a TREATY that a national referendum called BREXIT (as in, Britian to exist the EU) was supposed to dissolve in order to protect their fair nation from being pilfered by a monstrous financial bureaucracy in Brussels. Except that just such a TREATY cannot be dissolved unless England is dissolved, which it now must be, unbeknownst to the British public, all of whom are convinced that freedom has once again prevailed.
This is the essence of the Hegelian dialectic: offering people two doors that go to the exact same destination while preserving their ineffable sense of having some stake in that destination, even though they themselves cannot possibly believe that they do without vouchsafing an illusion utterly at odds with every single experience they have ever actually sustained since birth, further necessitating a virtual psychology or psychosis (like Christianity) with which to prop up their surviving sense of normal or natural human liberty, a psychosis symbiotic with every torture of culture and industry to which they are to be subjected.
Everything is owned by the people who hold the debt (and the debtor, in this case) in a society riven with nothing else, a people whose every native agency and human capital is extracted (by their own industry, innovation, rebellion, education, medicine, temple and credulity) with an efficiency rivaled by no other machine (or God).
A credit card "contract" says, when deciphered by this secret decoder ring of magic, "Here are some of the debt credits - every one of which everyone will forever pay for with more and more of their own labour - with which all people are bound. Now give us even more of yourself because we own you anyway and repeat after me, 'I am free but really I am not free.'"

Our doctors have little to no interest in the fact that your food is your medicine or that if you eat the wrong food, no amount of medicine is going to help you do anything but be a better cash cow for the owners of the medical and industrial establishment.
A doctor not connecting food to life is like a psychiatrist who has absolutely no room in their spacious education for the idea about the existence much less importance of a mother and father.
Which is entirely true.
But we still have to contend with the fact that just about every human being on earth ascribes nearly if not entirely God-like authority to the priests of their health, wealth, body, food and soul.
That has not changed in countless ages, and it is not going to.
Nobody ever comes out and tells us as children that anything that can be done to body and soul is done to body and soul, producing millions and millions of ostensibly civil and spiritual people with a taste for little else.
How can one be reasonably happy in such a world when the very canvas (the mind and every corresponding organ and impulse of sex, mind and cosmos) upon which we make our knowledge and story of the world and our family, when the very canvas upon which we resolve ourselves to our origins, to our utter dependence upon our mother and father (and the world to a great extent, one effectively wholly natural to a child and so to every virtual psycho-biology used to endure every corruption of this most primeval of trusts in blood and bone, one projected across every phase of our lives and every generation of our descendants) and to the either meaningless or purposeful vagaries of physical, emotional, sexual, mental and celestial human (and family) existence is polluted or poisoned with the veritably God-like influence of the coordinated and even uncoordinated vicissitudes of what amounts to an wholly psychopathic cybernetic corruption of the native human mind and its every heritage in and voice of truly living creative intelligence?
