There is nothing the modern demon loves more than to ensnare people into discussing abstractions.
To trap one group of people inside an abstractions such as racism or climate change (two of the most successful) - and then to suck-in more people to analysing, reframing, by re-defining what racism and climate change Really are (or ought to be). The business goes on forever.
Now that the evil-abstraction-mongers control almost the entirety of the communications system - from the mass media, through publishing and retail; to schools universities and research institutions - intellectual Life seems to have become a continual 'defence' against being-trolled with ridiculous wicked nonsense (equality, diversity, feminism, white nationalism/ supremacy...) that 'cries out' for our immediate and personal clarification and correction...
Yet this never does any good, and the 'need' for it never ends...
And then suddenly death looms, and we realise that have wasted our lives discussing The Enemy's agenda...
Just exactly as They wanted us to...
Note: of course (as well as abstractions) there is A Lot of trolling with specific egregious concrete abuses against Christians (especially - and the not-sufficiently-Left more generally); and much of the anti-Left media do considerable harm (overall) by linking to these, and by thus maintaining a continuous, daily diet of Their agenda. There are some benefits from developing a critique of standard strategies of evil, by decoding and reframing news stories - for example. But overall - since This Never Stops - drawing continuous attention to abuses amounts to a (mostly-inadvertent) collusion with the agenda of the Enemy. Which is one reason why I try to avoid topical discussions here, especially of the "Look at this stupid/evil!" type.
Note: A double-negative is different-from a positive; because only a positive
induces sustaining courage. We have a lot more double-negative propaganda than
is good for us; and it doesn't add-up to anything substantive - as can be
observed. Double-negative thinking, at best, induces fear-driven desperation -
not courage. But sustained fear is susceptible to habituation (the same dose
loses effect), and paralyses rather than energizes. That is why only 'religion'
can save us; because Men are innately religious creatures. Without
religion we are fatally and incurably maimed - but any saving religion simply
must be believed. To plan an 'expedient' religion, 'designed' to save
civilization, will fail with 100% certainty; will, indeed, make matters worse
