Conditioned Apathy

This article describes the escalating condition of insensitivity in modern society - insensitivity to human suffering, and insensitivity even to the concept of right and wrong. This is a disease of our own making - and the closely-guarded secrets of mass deception that government uses to make us believe what they want us to believe, and behave the way they want us to behave.

“First they came for the Communists, but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists, but I was neither, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews, but I was not a Jew, so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me”.
- Martin Niemoeller, a Protestant Pastor in Germany during WWII

More and more every day in this so-called “Free Country”, the foregoing quote can be ironically[1] applied. We now have in place a totalitarian wannabe regime, with a pathological liar, and an outright TRAITOR[2] as Commander In Chief.

Make no mistake about it, folks, this man George W. Bush, is no Patriot... he is no Christian. His allegiance is NOT to the citizens of this country; he belongs to a secret satanic fraternity called “Skull and Bones”, and no media reporter has ever pursued the obvious questions, or confronted him with this fact. He was NEVER elected; he stole the office by falsifying voter ballot counts. He was appointed by a court in Florida... a state where his brother happens to be the Governor (what a fortuitous[3] coincidence, eh?).

This miserable excuse for a human being; a demon wearing the skin of a man, conspired, plotted, schemed, lied, cajoled,[4] and incited terrorism on these shores in order to do what a hundred devils dared not attempt - He dared to attempt to resurrect the Nazi Party; the Fourth Reich that Adolf Hitler predicted would rise up, led by the Uber Menchen[5] to rule the world. Make no mistake, dear reader; do not be deceived; what I write here, will eventually be alleged by credible sources, and proven beyond a reasonable doubt, and to a moral certainty.

Outside of a single Special Prosecutor (Patrick Fitzgerald), no one has been able to touch this “Teflon Don”... and I am loathe to mention him in the same breath, alluding[6] comparisons to relatively honorable mob gangsters... at least the Mafia and Cosa Nostra had a code of ethics. However, this man has no ethics or morals, is above scruples,[7] exhibits only shallow compassion, and feigned empathy, and so far (a/o Christmas 2005) he has managed somehow, to remain beyond reach of the law.

I can think of no tenet of decency, morality, or ethics that this dirtbag has not violated during his term of office, save he could never be accused of cheating on his wife - something for which Bill Clinton was impeached - because no woman in her right mind would have anything to do with him. Perhaps that is the reason for a male escort making over a hundred calls to the White House... but that’s tantamount to “Gay Bashing”, and irrelevant here, especially since I addressed that issue elsewhere on this Web site.

The issue I want to get to here, is that of not only standing up to protect your rights, but defending your neighbor’s rights as well. However, in order to make my point clearly, I had to at least establish the rudiments of an allegation that there is a person, force, or entity against which you must do battle. In that vein, volumes have been written, however, The Word tells us:

“...For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” - Ephesians 6:12 KJV

The Founders of this Republic, which has long-since degenerated into a Democracy, knew that any government run by Man is likely to eventually degenerate into totalitarianism. This is precisely the reason for the Bill of Rights, and the Jeffersonian caveat that the Republic would not long stand, save it were overseen by God-fearing men. The age of God-fearing presidents ended with the assassination of John F. Kennedy; a man who because of his independent means, could not be bribed, bought, or otherwise intimidated or manipulated into going along with the plans to wage war in Southeast Asia... so they had him assassinated. Then they had a cop (Officer Tipitt) killed in order to have an excuse to respond to the scene (a movie theatre) and arrest Lee Oswald “on suspicion” of the cop killing, and later alleged that he was the assassin. The conspirators had him murdered in front of live TV cameras when they realized that he had an airtight alibi, and they caused 109 material witnesses to the assassination who wanted to testify before the Warren Commission to mysteriously disappear from the face of the Earth, mysteriously die, or otherwise not appear. They then concocted the biggest bullshit story ever told in America, which went largely unchallenged by ballistics experts, media reporters, and freshman-year high school physics students who knew it was a lie... and a bad one, at that… and as a result; the “reaping” of what was sown by apathy and capitulation[8] to threats, intimidation, and belief in grown-up fairy tales told 35 years ago, is the government we unwittingly brought down upon ourselves by either ignorance, cowardice, apathy, or a combination thereof.

How many millions have perished at the hands of the demons we could have stopped? How many people knew, and said nothing, leaving the rest of us poor, ignorant bastards to either pursue it when the physical evidence and witnesses were gone, or by inaction, allow whoever is responsible die of old age, in peace?

The failure to “out” evil into the light of truth, is perhaps more nefarious than the commission of the offense. It is true that a man becomes party to the evils he fails to oppose. Apathy requires consideration only of self; what Scientologists[9] call “the first[10] dynamic”. A person in the state of apathy is considered worse than dead in Dianetics and Scientology.

Sometimes, dear truth-seeker, doing “the right thing” not only does not accomplish the good thing you had intended, but actually sets the demons in motion... because like evil, good things tend to bring forth after their own kind - you reap what you sow, and the Devil knows it... and so the demons will plant tares[11] amidst your wheat, in an attempt to get you to abandon your farm. Sometimes, doing good brings down prosecutions and persecutions against you, and you begin to wonder what you’ve sown to merit this harvest of grief. You begin, like my good friend George Geiger, author of "Jesus - Christian Agnostic" and "Miracles For An Atheist", to mock God, only to find a greater plan for your life than you ever imagined, and miracles every time you turn around. I speak to you from personal experience; My first “wrestling with God” was in 1971 when a wounded Vietnamese boy died in my arms.

The prophet Isaiah said it best:
“... and he who departeth from evil, maketh himself a prey”.
From that verse of scripture, we derive the secular corollary:
“The road to hell is paved with good intentions”.

Most of us would have it no other way than to live in peace with our neighbors and the rest of the world. If that is truly the case (it is), then why are there wars, famine, crime, and cruelty? For the answer to that question, I refer you to my sermons “Skin for Skin“, and “The Truth About The Devil”, which are both contained in my book “A Book Of Sermons - Volume 1”.

The fact that good intentions can go awry[12] is only half the story, for the Word also promises:
“.. all things work together for good to them that love God...” - Romans 8:28

Be advised, that the demons of this world abhor the light of truth. They may rally against you, attempt to silence your witness for the Lord, because you exposed a case of abuse by ACS / CPS people, or because you “blew up the spot” on abuse and exploitation of incarcerated veterans in the New York prison system, or posted photos of prisoners being abused in Iraq on your web site. If you don’t agree with their agenda, and don’t accept their convoluted[13] “facts”. They may even murder you like they did JFK, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, or William Cooper.[14] Nevertheless, know this: despite your past, despite the sins you’ve committed, you are no hypocrite if you see evil, and attempt to banish it. You don’t have to be Jesus Christ to rail against the moneychangers in the temple. You don’t have to be Jesus Christ to love your neighbor enough to protect him or her from harm. You don’t have to be Jesus Christ to “ God with all your heart, mind, and soul, and love thy neighbor as thyself”. The expression of that love manifests itself in what you DO, not what you SAY, or say you’re going to do. If you let the “...Word that is written in your heart” dictate your actions, you may very well find yourself compassed ‘round [15] by demons of every description. However, after you have done all you can do, then “...having done all, to stand”, as Paul wrote. Your resolve, your faith, and your very sanity will be put through the gauntlet. However it turns out, the outcome is in God’s hands if you’re one of His...

He will “... prepare a table for you in the midst of your enemies”, and you will prevail, and have the last laugh.

Therefore, when you see your neighbor in trouble, come to her assistance... even if it’s only to offer comfort in times of grief. When you hear a lie, call it by name, and use your knowledge and resources to expose it for what it is. When you encounter a pagan religion being taught as science, mock it to scorn for the Lord’s sake.

Above all, eschew[16] evil. Do not engage yourself in the sins and corruptions you rail against - condemn evil openly, but show love and compassion to the evildoer; after all, isn’t that how you would want to be treated. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. Make peace with everyone you meet. Rebuke the Devil, and he will flee from you. Lastly, if you are truly the Lord’s, expect to be chastised for your wrongs. Do not concern yourself with the fact that evildoers seem never to be brought to justice, and that they prosper at the expense of others. Complain about it, yes... but know that your chastisement comes as a Child of God, and their lack of chastisement is because “...they are bastards, and none of His”.

The time has come when America - the people who are called “America”, realize that they no longer can abrogate[17] their moral obligations to his fellow man; we can no longer trust government with caring for the poor, the homeless, the hungry, the abused, the elderly, and certainly not our children. We can no longer allow the usurpation[18] of brotherly love with psychology. We can no longer tolerate calling a Pagan religion (Darwin’s theory) “science”.

We can no longer tolerate the demeaning of a single human life. We must resurrect compassion, and revive forgiveness. We must take an interest in the welfare of strangers, and trust God to do the rest.

What we can no longer afford to do, is trust government with anything other than running the post office, maintaining roads, and shooting satellites into orbit... they’ve proven themselves corrupt and incompetent at everything else, including running the military.

If we want our country back, we have to do ourselves - each one of us, personally - what we have for so long given over to the government to do. If we can do that much, we will have come a long way towards making this country the American Dream it should be.

Peace and Godspeed,
