“Men are always the same – fear makes them cruel.”
— W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence
Ignorance is lack of awareness, information and knowledge.
Ignorance can be overcome with personal effort.
Reducing ignorance is work, remaining ignorant is easy.
Stupidity is the defense of ignorance.
Stupidity is lazy and cowardly.
Stupidity shields religious belief from questioning,
and bigotry from exposure and eradication.
The imperative for greed arises out of the fear
of being excluded from the ranks of the secure.
The Republican Party is a conspiracy for theft.
It is a political virus finely tuned to exploit the national weakness of popular stupidity.
Just as lying is the sound of theft, so is hypocrisy the signature of the Republican Party.
The greed imperatives aggregated as the Republican Party
react to humanity with xenophobia and otherization, expressed as:
– racial and ethnic prejudices
– misogynist sexism
– sociopathic attitudes towards wage earners, the poor and the destitute
– pedophobia (as with the destruction of public education).
How can the Republican Party gain votes (ballots, as opposed to dues) for a program that aims to disenfranchise otherized populations, subjugate women, and impoverish most of the public?
You would have to be stupid to vote for that.
Hence, Republican Party efforts to manage the public focus on capturing the DNA of popular stupidity, by injecting viral control directives into the nucleus of public attention, to effect the auto-enslavement of the vast majority of the nation.
The attack on science and the coddling of religion are all part of the strategy
to strengthen the force of stupidity and expand popular ignorance.
Your stupidity is your enslavement, and their triumph.
