Of Good and Evil

Here is a tree. What a beautiful thing. How we must wish we could make anything half so beautiful and so long-lasting.

Are trees evil? - What a stupid idea.

From a tree I can take a stick. With the stick I can support myself, reach things, apply leverage, poke holes in the soil for seeds, many things, even if need be defend myself. - Evil? - Never. I can even attack and wound or kill with it. Because I can? No, because I want to. - Evil? No, the stick in itself can only be innocent. But the cause - my intention - is evil.

Here is a piece of steel bar. - Wicked? Of course not; it is inanimate. I bore it through and rifle it to shoot bullets. Is it evil? - No, but my doing so if in order to enable myself or others to attack and kill others is evil.

Again it is the intention that is evil. Of course, this is just common sense.

Ask yourself then: - Those who, from the safety of armoured cars, shout insults at children to provoke them to throw stones, in order then to use said children for target practice. - What does their activity say about their intentions and about them as people?

Those of any countries who administer systems of control to train young people to obey any order they are given, no matter how malign. Those who - for pay and promotion - knowingly give them their malign orders. Those who plan such strategies for gain. Those strategists who are paid to provoke strife for the advantage that subsequent wars will bring them, and those who pay them. Those who knowingly infiltrate others' countries and work tirelessly to bring them down and use them as tools for their own material ends or those of the villains who pay them, and again, those who pay them. - What does any of this say about any of them?

But above all, those who invent and inflict the whole fictitious mirage of finance in order to take everything from others, including their lives, and thus wilfully and callously provoke all these other evils in order to do just that. - What does that say about them? That is cruel wickedness indeed.

You know, it is not for us to wait to see whether there is a God, and then for God to condemn or to forgive their evils. That is only what those who wish to farm and 'cull' us as domesticated animals would like us to think, and that is the way to the slaughterhouse. No, nobody, but nobody, can tell us that we have to sit here and let them chew us into extinction just because they want to, have initiated laws saying they can govern our conduct, and have installed and paid corrupt leaders over us to tell us we have to let them. Nobody can 'legislate' others out of existence in this way. People are basically good and well-intentioned and have to be taught to be callous and indifferent to the fate of others, but the teaching is being carefully contrived and is already well-advanced. The whole process is just the 'clever' humans consigning to the shambles this batch or that of those they have tricked into playing the 'cattle'.

So the problem is ours, here and now. There are duties of stewardship that we cannot delegate. The rest of us, the intended victims, can see that some things manifestly are rank evil, wrong, bad, wicked. We here and now have to act to stop the activities of those few of our kind who bring about these evils, and it is our duty to penalise them to the extent of our abilities a) to stop the harm they are doing to us and to the rest of the world and b) to show others that you cannot do these things and get away with it. And most importantly, that you can never ever benefit by them.

So, here and now, starting from the top, take down these who deprave this beautiful world, and hang them.

Then unpick the existing administrative systems that are designed and operated presently to govern the conduct of our societies so corruptly. Then knit our own administration of our activities back into a better world. - Easy.

N.B.: 'Dumb' means mute. Those who have been persuaded that 'dumb' means 'stupid' and then to act that way should look very closely at those who have been promoting such persuasion. I tell you it is also easy to wake up.

Yes, I am talking to you.
