RELIGIONS WHETHER OCCULT OR SECULAR SELL FAKE STATUS
by John Mark
Religion sells fake status just as leftism sells fake
status. Religion sells artificial good feelings – a method of lying to oneself as a method of dealing with the harshness of life – just as leftism does.
NPCs seem to need these lies, or an alternative that provides
them the same service: “You don’t have to think, you can feel
good/more secure/optimistic about yourself and about life even if you have no reason to, and you can feel like life has a grand meaning even if it is false.”
The only alternative we can offer them is a “religion”
(rituals/training/symbolic reminders) of stoicism/ancestor
“worship” (admiration/thanks), which requires being honest with oneself, and a fairly secure place in our pack if they can add some value and not advocate for theft.
As far as I can tell, far less than half the world’s population is
capable of that. Some NPCs may be able to live under our
system, and we can do their thinking for them, if they can resist the urge to lie and rebel against the truth. But I am doubtful most people can handle it. Thus we must separate from those who cannot do it, and transcend apart from them, embracing our role as the world’s master class/race (including the minority of non-whites with the agency to join us) as we have been for centuries.
Our attempt to lift up the world’s teeming masses by letting them immigrate and live under our law, or invading them and imposing the superficial structure of our laws, has failed. Because they are not like us. We are a minority on earth, and our strategy must reflect that. We can benefit them via our advancements, from across a high wall, and provide them with help to transcend as they request it respectfully, from across a high wall.
