Original sin
is not knowledge
of good and evil,
but the choice
to deny that evil is,
in fact, evil
and can be rationalized
by plausible deniability
at the behest
of each in his own
special interest
and so avoid the pain
of cognitive dissonance.

And being such ancient animals
bearing inherent drives
for sex, acceptance and all manner
of pleasurable diversions,
we are led, ridiculously easily,
to the profitable perversion
of these
as our buttons are pushed
by unspeakable gluttons
who gorge on us
to feed their insane and insatiable greed,
psychologically devising/advertising,
getting us to push the buttons
of own desires and drives,
thus hastening our destruction
like lab rats keeping at it
'til we die of the addictions
they've hard-wired into our brains,
condemning us to eternal damnation
with no voice
in our "freely made choices".
Such arrogant depravity
is beyond denunciation.

Free will,
the "freedom" of choice,
is often the petard
upon which
we are hoisted.
