Secular Institutions

People determined to delude themselves will succeed: in deluding themselves. All their institutions will cooperate. Secular institutions such as government delude us secularly even worse than churches ever deluded us spiritually. Once upon a time the church told us lies about our role in a hereafter so the secular institutions could have a free hand in destroying the health of the biosphere. Now though we’re so secularized we can devote ourselves full tilt to making the earth uninhabitable for creatures like ourselves: big, greedy, blind.

Churches show us a Bible and tell us that it says that there’s God, and there’s a Devil, and that God filling up heaven with the faithful while the Devil is filling up hell with little boys who lie, by little boys who touch themselves, by little girls who let themselves be touched by little boys … I say that God and the Devil, if that’s what they’re doing are wasting time, opportunity, heaven, hell, and us. We should stop supporting such gods: stop burning meat, don’t let the fumes feed them. No. Demand a god that puts institutions into hell: when they lie, when they switch some corporation’s purpose for their own supposed purpose: the way the schools palm education while they actually turn millions upon millions, generation after generation, into robots, some percent of them with Ph.D.s, employed by Dupont, by P.
