As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be (?):  Wisdom vs. The beast.


Notice, it's not institutional religion or establishment politics vs. The Beast, since both are egregiously more part of the problem than the solution.


No, the human species needs something incalculably more profound than murder in the name of God religions or political puppets of the elites to deal with The Beast.


First, let's define our terms.  "The Beast" is a composite of mentally ill religious fanatics, the barbarian lunatic right wing fringe of every country on the Earth, and parasitical, vampire elites.


In short, The Beast is humanity at its worst.


Conversely, humanity at its best is incarnate wisdom.


And wisdom is what?  Lot's of answers to this, but here's two good ones.  Wisdom is what transcends human delusion.  Another (and equivalent) definition is that wisdom is "being in touch with reality".


One wonders if this "battle of principalities" is in some sense hard wired into the cutting edge of evolution.  Or more specifically, is this conflict an inevitable rite of passage for any "advanced species? Of course, here we can only speculate since each life form (extraterrestrial or otherwise) evokes their own unique reality and survival challenges.
