In the land of the psychotic

On the one hand, the Establishment have made this world into a madhouse. Decades of increasing political correctness have climaxed in the fake birdemic/ response, and now an orgy of state-media-business-bureaucracy sponsored self-hatred and self-destruction.

THEY are messing with your mind, you are being terrorised and isolated. Encouraged to feel afraid, demanded to confess guilt, punished without limit or extent - at the whim of the authorities.

How have people reacted? By trying to become good patients. By accepting their assigned roles and status. By pandering to the whims of the Caligulas who rule us.

After all, nobody wants to be the only sane man in a madhouse.

Not when you believe there is nothing else but this madhouse, and that we cannot escape ever, because there is nowhere to escape to - except death (which is believed to be inevitable annihilation).

Note added: Yet, if we know that there is life beyond life, we can recognize and learn from our situation.

I've decided to permanently disengage from extended family who are all-in on VirusRegime. This leaves my parents who have no choice but to deal with me--mercifully, they live over a thousand miles away.

Family try to convert me out of a sense of good will, but they just can't (or won't) see how inverted their morality has become.

I wish I had something more substantial to contribute than gratitude, but as a recent convert undergoing very trying circumstances, and having a trying day even relative to that, this for some reason, uplifted me. Thank you.

Jake has left a new comment:

@Tongueless: Congratulations on converting. I've gone through some very trying circumstances in the past two years myself, and it's amazing how much such times can either destroy you, or set you on a much more solid foundation...

@tongueless As a recent convert you might enjoy the Screwtape Letters. A very short and surprisingly insightful read about what might be coming your way now that you’ve joined with Christ. Godspeed!
