vomit … oops …
—make of it what you will:
(you want a brief post? With the following explanation this is it):
(a) in New Zealand,
(b) the indefensible accusation is that of being a racist.
You have an opinion* ? You are a racist. QED and EOS.
* Any opinion. Anything at all …
(or so I am told …)
—which speaks metaphorically.
But if to be taken literally (as the ‘Bible-is-literal-truth’ folks would have us believe) makes no sense at all. Zero.
So it’s gotta be metaphor, no?
Following a proffered lead (thanks, Ark) (I think) (dammit, you’ll keep~!) I ended up dragging in the ‘Wedge Document’; and this is as far as I got before my Vomit Reflex hit the red lines:
The proposition that human beings are created in the image of God is one of the bedrock principles on which Western civilization was built. Its influence can be detected in most, if not all, of the West’s greatest achievements, including representative democracy, human rights, free enterprise, and progress in the arts and sciences.
—the very first para … boom boom … and there’s oodles of them. This is going to be a loooong week …
Anyone like to comment so far? Welcome, and feel free … for or against, be my guest. But if you want The Beast in all His glory for yourself first you’ll find it on this link—
—and if you go there take a big bag of sandwiches and a demijohn of Rum. (I have the feeling you’ll need both …)
If you do go there ponder the motives of those who concocted it—I think you’ll find them a bit less than altruistic …
“Argus! Pleeeeze stop revealing my hand!”
we shouldn’t even begin to think of trying to ban it. Brrrr.
So there. Self-confessed.
Surprised? Don’t be—
anyone trying to tell ME how to think or act.
I am a free agent—I make my own (tiny, little) mind up for myself. Regardless of what YOU or anyone else tells me. I evaluate as best I can eclectic inputs (from a variety of sources) and unless I have totally free access to whatever drivel is out there I cannot make a fully informed decision.
Neither can you, Bud~!
So control what other people babble and you are no better than any Nazi, Communist, Catholic, Islamic or other controlling self-interest-only freak out there.
Hmmmm … I guessed not …
—and I’m booked in to take The Spouse into town. If we can get in. If we can find parking. If, if, if …
BUT INTRIGUED BY
recent correspondence I stole a minor chunk from Eternity to to quickly Google the expression
and with no time to research further can only scan headlines (life was so much simpler when I was a pup).
Whatever, it leads me to one inescapable conclusion—if the (many) theories are correct—or uniquely all of them—then really there is absolutely no point whatsoever; we may as well amass all the loot we can and get our butts out there for the good ol’ “Wine, Women and Song” … no?
Here … have some spring flowers from Queens Park last week—
—and returning to the fray after so brief a reality, here’s a Wiki opening salvo (the screenshot snippet itself links to the article. Good luck)—
—with just a wee bit of layout change to make it easier on the eye. Grateful thanks to JZ and Jim for making it possible. (Oh, and to God too, without whom I imagine we’d have by now planted flags on planets all over this solar system and possibly even polluted a few others.)
known by the locals as
“God’s own (country)”, get it?
I OFTEN CLAIM
to be a ‘Conspiracist’. I’m not. I flag myself up as a Crank to save others the bother and to alert folks to the ‘other worldly’ status of my thinking. (If you promptly thought ‘aliens!’ here then you are the sort of thinker I’m trying to warn against … I entertain the possibility, yes, but I don’t believe it all that probable.)
in New Zealand there is a subtle campaign of social indoctrination/manipulation underway which makes no sense unless for some reason kiwis are being prepared for the reversion of the country to ‘native’ control. Sadly for all—it is no longer ‘their’ country.
To the British these islands were effectively a tabula rasa upon which they stamped their Brit values, their political systems and religions. For which all should be grateful. If not the Poms it would have been the French, Germans, or possibly the Dutch. In the end it would not (r) NOT have been the natives.
So just the other day a publishing outlet was obliged by Government action to remove from distribution a ‘free speech’ video that asked too many embarrassing questions (and had ferreted out too many embarrassing ‘facts’). One must not, it seems, in Godzone embarrass the government ‘line’. Or ask questions … why not? (Don’t ask…)
I refer to the Plummtree production—
—for that video (while you can) (if you desire). Obviously it was made for a purpose, to appeal to a minority (of cranks? Nazis?) sufficiently to make sales and hopefully a few bucks.
To my mind it raises good healthy questions. Questions which rather than being swept under the carpet should be flagged up and dragged screaming into the full light of day for objective scrutiny. But hey——I live in New Zealand and that ain’t gonna happen.
WE ARE TOLD
a lot about the people of North Korea … but for organic robots it is difficult to find better specimens than the ‘free’ thinking people of Godzone. Both of whom would fight like rabid rats for their beloved system — why is that?
