Now you are probably thinking what does voodoo have to do with bean counters and class envy? Of course you know I’m going to tell you.
At cosmicflyswatter.com we have a great affection for metaphysics. We enjoy reaching beyond what is provable since it is most certain that almost everything is ultimately unprovable, that is of course beyond knowing that you are alive and that you are going to die.
But I think that it can be clearly understood that in life there are things that though they cannot be proved they are surely true. Kurt Godel, Einstein’s good friend wrote the Incompleteness Theory, which though it was centered around that branch of mathematics known as Set Theory, has formidable philosophical implications. No matter what box you create or set of things, there are things outside of any box that though they cannot be proved, they are nevertheless true.
So it is with the spirit of things, or in the case of voodoo the “spirits” of things. Unprovable as they are, spirits exist. If you can think of something it exists in your mind. At the very least one can always describe the spirit of any situation, and people do just that everyday. We will look more at this in a moment, for I think that there are overriding and antithetical if not evil influences prodding our great society to implode at this very time.
To coax you along the pathway where I conjure my own perspective, and in the hope that you might at least understand me if not agree, imagine you are at a crossroads. There are two signs each pointing down two separate paths. One pathway is signed “Spirit” and the other sign reads “Letter.”
These two words refer to the Law. They are the two main perspectives of the Law and though they can be complementary, they are often two very separate and divergent paths. To illustrate, if a young football player makes a particularity viscous hit on an opposing team member, but that hit was legal, he has acted within the “Letter” while breaking the “Spirit” of the Law. The letter of the law in this case being the rules of the game and the spirit being good sportsmanship. Which is overriding? How do we decide?
For our purposes here we will set aside that class of scoundrels known as lawyers whose purview it is to choose whichever side of the Law proves itself most convenient or expedient in their pursuits if pecuniary emoluments… I’m sorry, every now and then I seem to channel the spirit of Charles Dickens when writing even though I don’t believe in channeling. Pecuniary emoluments is a flowery term that simply means money.
St. Paul was a big advocate of the Letter of the Law. In his early career you would have found him on the “Letter” pathway pursuing and sentencing to death the heretics known as Christians, until one day he headed down the road to Damascus where he decided to switch allegiance and hang out on the pathway of the Spirit. He even stated that in the Letter of the Law there is death, but in the Spirit of the Law there is life.
And we all know what Shakespeare had to say about lawyers:
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, Henry VI, part II, act IV, scene ii, lines 8384
“The first thing we do, lets kill all the lawyers.”
It is their seemingly unprincipled jumping from one path to the other that infuriates us and leaves us with a lower opinion of them than a used car salesman.
But I point all of this out to illustrate that no matter what arena of human endeavor or thought we consider, there is the component of the Spirit of Things that is overriding. And it is in the choice of which spirit or spirits will guide us that great benefit or error derive. Even if we do not pay any attention to such things, the choices of spirit are being made simply in the selection of our actions. We may ignore the entire idea of spirit being the highly educated modern anti-mythological and practical video-game playing intellectual giants that we are, the spirit or spirits of things abide anyway. The Spirit is overriding, always!
Il n’ya pas d’evasion, Amigos.
Forgive me for writing almost half an article before getting to the point which is bean-counters, class envy, and voodoo. These three things are components in the unraveling of the greatest most free society that mankind has ever built. I may be stretching things here a bit with voodoo but I think that you will eventually see my point.
The Spirit of America was declared from the beginning. It was called forth in the Declaration of Independence. Now I’m going to repeat it for you folks sitting over in the left pews since I don’t think you heard me. Let me cup my hand behind my ear. And I want to hear a response of “Amen” from you after I say it again.
OK here we go “INDEPENDENCE!!!” … I didn’t hear the “Amen!” from you.
We Declared our Independence, and we justified this action by claiming that our rights are derived from the Living God and not from men and their governments. In fact after a dozen more years and a lot of negotiations we wrote a constitution based on that original spirit of INDEPENDENCE!
We set out to limit our own governance by claiming that our governors will govern with their authority coming from us and not the other way around. We tried to fashion a model of governance that reflected more perfectly Nature’s Creator, the nature of men, and the natural order of things in general. The idea was to respect each and every man and woman’s vision of happiness.
The hypocrisy of slavery existed during this period and it tainted the purity of our intentions. It took another three quarters of a century to boil up and over into civil war, but the spirit of what we declared was nevertheless true right from the beginning.
Then came the progressives and their greatest worker bees, the bean-counters.
The progressives have always been around in some form or another. They are always funded by evil bankers and supported by lawyers. They see government as a playground for their vain imaginings and as an outlet for their superiority in intellect. They convince themselves that just by being the Ivy-League Club Members that they are, they are entitled to cut up, massage, refashion and dismiss any part of the constitution that was constructed to stop them and their kind in the first place. The fruit of all regular folks’ labor is theirs in their eyes to redistribute as they wish.
The United States Constitution was expressly designed to limit and stop any group of elitists from exacting tyranny over the visions of happiness enjoyed by the regular folks. Plutarchs, Oligarchs, Banking Elites, Corporate Giants, Union Thugs, Chicago Gangsters, Imperial Politicians, and Academic Loons need not apply! NO VACANCY! Go back to Europe, or Cuba, or any other place where lies are forwarded for the profit of the clans of various types that crawl around there. And take Al Gore and the Global Warming Liars with you! We declared our INDEPENDENCE!
But the elitists are not without an army on their march to tyrannize and subdue free men and women. They have an army of bean counters. Bean counters are everywhere working for the progressive tyrants. And by using bean counter products they have sold horse manure to at least the last two generations while they were growing up.
What is a bean counter? They are mostly sociologists or some form of it. They are not necessarily bad folks. But they are being used by the progressive tyrants to sell liberty-diminishment to independent thinking Americans. The tyrants need to convince free thinkers that things are unfair and that they should give up their freedom to them so that they (the tyrants) can straighten things out in the face of all the unfairness. So they cite the statistics compiled by bean counters. Bean counters use mostly taxpayer money and academic grants to study groups.
What kind of groups? The groups can be anything they want. This is a cultural form of Set Theory. The set of all whites, or the set of all Latinos, or the set of all transvestite, welfare recipient, below the poverty-line, inner-city, single mother, single payer, illegal, undocumented, yellow-breasted cockroaches. It is not important. What is important is that the population be divided into opposing groups. As long as “unfairness” can be identified there is money to be extracted for big government slavery enticements. Jesse Jackson holds a Masters Degree in Unfairology.
Earth to progressives … Nothing is fair, never has been and never will be. Being Created equal is in they eyes of God and not in the eyes of a Harvard Idiot!
Bean counters are the worker bees for slavery and socialism. It is a trick wrapped in partial truth and sold to the lazy as a devil’s bargain.
Which brings us to class envy. After dividing everybody into groups it is no leap to create class envy. And by class I don’t necessarily mean income though that’s a big and useful one.
The “F***ing rich are getting a break man!” … ” I know dude, let’s finish that doobie or we’ll be late to Professor Nutjob’s the History of the White Evil Male class.
Class can be race, money, jobs, location, whatever. Every demographic, every last population sector must be identified and dissected for the unfairness factor. Just get me a bean counter over here and quick or we’ll lose a government grant opportunity. That folks then become envious and suspicious of each other is the direct result of government meddling and pandering.
This is expressly anti-American by its nature. Like Al Gore who apparently stated the motto of the United States backwards, progressives suffer from Voluntary Anti-American Spirit Syndrome. They see things as, from one, many. E Pluribus Unum means From Many, One.
We all came here with different backgrounds that we may remember and celebrate on occasion, but only underneath and below that great unifying attribute of the American Spirit. We are INDEPENDENT! We have this in common. We have always cherished it. But now we are losing it to the liars and thieves. These progressive tyrants are mostly useless people who do nothing but live off the labor of real working Americans.
These people are on Wall Street and K-Street and in Congress. They are CEO’s of Giant concerns and Union bosses and Chicago gangsters like those now in the White House. They are International Socialist bankers and all others who want to bring us down and make us feel guilty for being exceptional. They want us to abandon the unifying idea that we are blessed from our Creator with inalienable rights to Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. They want us to report to death panels of bureaucrats who will decide our happiness for us and arrest us for green violations. They will re-educate us and give us our ration after attaching a computer chip wrist band that we may be properly categorized into manageable groups that the bean counters will assist them in cooking up.
Which brings us to Voodoo the final component in this my most recent perspective on things.
Like the unifying Declaration of INDEPENDENCE, it is no accident that at the time it was put forth there was a unifying understanding that there was a single spirit, a single observer, the Creator who watched over men and their goings and comings and it was through His benificence that we men would not only declare INDEPENDENCE but give credit to that Single Spirit who also gave us our rights to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
This is not even debatable among the sane. The Truth is only challenged by perhaps the revisionist folly of Harvard Idiots and that admitted liar, may he rest in peace, Howard Zinn.
We are now however imitating Voodoo instead. Voodoo is a conglomeration of ancient pagan animist traditions. In Haiti it is mixed with a little Christianity just for fun. Evil spirits are given as much attention as good ones, and a good time is had by all. And their culture reflects this worshipping of lesser spirits.
Do they exist at all? Modern superior New York man scoffs at such mythological stupidity and condescends to visit what he sees secretly as the fools who dwell there for his vacation. Then in his intellectual generosity he tells himself that practioners of Voodoo are “valid” and just as good as those idiot Christians who are just as bad as Moslem terrorists, etc.etc.etc. “Comparative Religion and Multiculturalism, you know Scottsby, just like we learned at Yale … ha ha ha…”
Multiculturalism is not Pluralism which IS American. Multiculturalism degrades the single unifying spirit of America where our motto is E Pluribus Unum. It is anti-American on its face. Multiculturalism is being practiced by progressives on the micro-domestic scale by their dividing of Americans into small competing groups who stand at the government trough. It is forwarded by them on the grand scale by building globalism. The result is envy and the unravelling of the single Spirit of America, which is INDEPENDENCE.
We are experiencing cultural Voodoo. The progressive tyrants have taken the bean-counter’s statistics, mixed it with Harvard cooked relativism and multiculturalism in order to divide and rule and enslave free men and women. Envy is the greatest tool being used to grow government (the Great Parasite). Their duplicitous reasoning and the lies coming from their mouths about fairness cannot hide the effect of their treachery.
They are destroying our awareness of the Single Spirit that gave us freedom and all our bounty. They seek to replace it with many inferior and lesser and competing and many times evil spirits.
It is Voodoo, Period!
Bean Counters, Class Envy, and Voodoo.
End of story!
