The mass media, who are - after all, bastions of the Establishment, and the prime origin and focus of strategic evil in The West - are currently encouraging the English people to mutilate themselves with tattoos, as being an authentic and constructive response to the wave of terrorism (itself unfolding as a direct and intended consequnce of decades of purposive and coordinated laws and policies).
The British ruling Establishment has therefore created a passive and self-hating population, is unleashing lethal terror upon them, and is now channeling the response into public rituals and permanently-displayed symbols of passivity and self-hatred.
Self-mutilation as a response to emotional trauma is indeed a perfect example of exactly what 'they' want from 'us'.
As a psychiatrist, I used to see people with Personality Disorders who did just the same thing: cut and scar themselves whenever they felt bad. We tried, mostly ineffectually, to stop them doing this, since it was recognised as being at best manipulative, and at worst fuelling a down-cycle of self-loathing headed at suicide.
It is therefore entirely appropriate that the mainstream media should be encouraging this mental pathology; but it is nonetheless, beneath contempt that they do so.
And those who go along with it, get tattoos, and boast of the fact, and egg-on others to do likewise; they too are contemptible.
Such extremity of depravity - so openly-endorsed, encouraged, celebrated - is repellant; and the best part of all-of-us feels this, at a visceral level.
Yet it is precisely that we are being urged into violating our own spontaneous taboos, and the shocked frisson consequent, that makes approved mass self-mutilation such an effective means of corruption and subordination.
Of course, (Thanks be!) Christian repentance can wash our souls clean; even when the skins remain stained and tainted. But repentance requires admission of wilful error and prohibits seeking approval, even covert approval - or else it is not repentance but instead covert pride.
