Evil Uses Hopelessness to Keep Us from Acting

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, no matter that evil is repulsive in it’s purest form, disguised it can be very attractive, evil feeds off people’s desire for justice. It directs and feeds a sense of anger and frustration, and therefore a burning desire for justice, at the end of a gun if that is what it takes… ever impelling us towards violence, and when violence erupts, evil hides it by diverting our attention, thus further nurturing a general sense of unease and hopelessness. Once the mixture of oil and ammonium nitrate is exactly right, all it takes is a small pre detonation, an otherwise small event like the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, and the whole thing explodes. History is nothing if not this story recurring over and over. The first most pernicious thing about evil though, is just that, it’s ability to hide it’s hideousness with a porcelain mask.

Today we can see the actions of evil clearly if only we look behind the mask, with an open mind and open hearts. We have a faction that is rioting in the streets, attacking peaceful protesters and disrupting events to shut down speakers they disagree with, another faction that is daily attacking anyone not of their faith and even those of their faith that are not sufficiently correct in the interpretation of that faith, and the elite claim it is the victims they are afraid of not the perpetrators. The elite in other words, cheer on the bullies while lamenting that the kid on the ground with the bleeding lip, who’s lunch money is being stolen every day, might stand back up and punch the bully in the nose… because they get a cut of that lunch money! All done in the name of social justice.

We have the Antifa movement that openly calls for violence, in the name of justice, even against white babies, holding violent demonstrations where they smash anything they get their hands on and leave heaps of garbage behind, as if to show their utter disregard for even their own kitchens. The Black Lives matter movement that openly calls for the murder of police, even as police are shot by snipers in Dallas. As the Tea Party was setting on lawn chairs listening quietly to speakers talk about the US Constitution, and fastidiously cleaning up after themselves out of respect, the media that calls itself unbiased was slandering the Tea Party as violent extremists, and the Occupy Wall Street a grass roots groundswell of peaceful protest, even as the OWS hoodlums spilled garbage and human feces into banks, smashed windows and engaged in a rape culture. We tolerate George Soros funded crypto fascist beating up Conservatives at conservative rallies, then the same media claims it was the Trump protesters, who were beaten up at the Trump rally, that were the instigators! In every case here the media sides with the bully and blames the victims! Could it be more obvious than that?

The globalist elite are, as one mind, in this. There were no terrorist attacks in Europe before the Islamic immigration waves of the late 1980s. The rise in terrorism and terrorist related attacks is directly correlated to the increase in Muslim immigration, yet the more Islamic terror attacks, the more the elite bring in more Muslims. It is almost as if the terror attack at the Olympics in 1972 gave the global elite the idea to destabilize the west, by intentionally creating the civil disaster, daily terrorist attacks, we have in Europe today. It would seem the elite understand, as does everyone, that most Muslims are very nice people, so to get in the few that are not nice, there needs to be hundreds of thousands brought in. Moreover, once war breaks out the elite know even the nice Muslims will side with their not so nice brethren to establish Sharia.

It is a delicate balancing act though. The globalists have to keep us feeling more hopeless than fearful. They have to keep it in balance because if the balance gets too far off we will act. The idea is to ratchet up our feeling of hopelessness along with our fear and disgust at what is going on until we feel we cant take it anymore, the balance of ammonium nitrate to oil has been achieved and some small event will trigger the reaction, say, the rape of Lucretia by Sextus Tarquinius… and we will explode. Eventually we always get there, it is only a matter of how long it will take. The longer it takes, the more violent the explosion and the more human blood will be spilled. Sadly, by talking to people, the feeling of hopelessness in us, has grown so strong that the usurpations will build to a very well balanced oil and ammonium nitrate mixture… before we blow.

Sincerely,

John Pepin

Calling Good Evil and Evil Good

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Dear Friends,

It seems to me, Glaucon’s question is pertinent today and is in many ways, the source of the societal convulsions we are presently experiencing. To those unfamiliar with The Republic, Glaucon’s question to Socrates was, “Is it better to be just and thought unjust, or better to be unjust and considered just?” The question went to the heart of the matter they were discussion, is justice really a good or only something we use to trick fools into following the “great men?” He went on to explain that someone who is just, but considered unjust, will be spat upon, ridiculed, attacked and his or her interests destroyed, while he who is unjust but considered just, will be lauded, protected and the road paved before him. Today our media tells us that people who clearly are unjust (evil), are just(good), and those who are just, as unjust. Seemingly to forward injustice as justice, which goes to the heart of The Republic’s premise, what is the nature of justice?

Machiavelli touched on the same question in The Prince. In that book, Machiavelli said that a wise prince must be dishonest (unjust) while appearing at all times to be honest (just). He went on that the way to appear just while being unjust is by several means. One must constantly claim to be honest, even when one is a consummate liar, because people will hear the words and forget the actions. We have the example today of Clinton and Obama, who lied constantly, about significant things, but are still considered by many as honest. Obama’s “you can keep your doctor,” and “Benghazi was due to an internet video,” are two glaring examples of our leaders following Machiavelli’s advice, be dishonest while claiming to be honest. The media backed those two liars, so they would appear to be honest, the media in other words, went to great lengths to make the unjust appear just.

Meanwhile, the media has bent over backwards to claim Trump, and Reagan before him, are/were bad people. The legacy media that calls itself unbiased threw mud at Reagan incessantly. They re branded Reagan’s every initiative, The strategic defense initiative was re branded as Star wars, Reagan’s supply side economics was called trickle down, are but two examples of many. Trump has faced the vitriol of the media since he became a viable candidate. Before that he was used as a tool to discredit republicans. That shenanigan backfired in the faces of the media that calls itself unbiased and helped get Trump in office. Clearly, judging by their actions the media is seeking to paint Trump, who may very well be just, as unjust.

Today, the media dutifully pretend that open calls for violence against republicans, is mere rhetoric. Claiming evil is actually good and thereby making the unjust appear just, while they make the just appear unjust. Knowing the way people treat those they consider evil, the media is complicit in creating “Great Men,” cut from the same cloth as other “great men,” Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Tamerlane, Hitler and Lenin… mass murderers every one. One thing they all had in common was that they were considered, at the time and some even today, as just, when they were anything but. The result of the media’s calling injustice, justice, evil good and good evil, is the political violence we are seeing today.

Take a look at what the media calls just, stealing from producers, and redistributing that ill gotten gain to politically favored groups. If an action is wrong (unjust) for me to do, then it is equally wrong for you, and even a group of people, no matter the size of that group. If a mob smashes a store window and steals the merchandise, it is as wrong as if you or I did it, and even if that mob consists of three hundred million rioters, it is still unjust. To claim it is, warps not only logic, but morality as well. The “great men” as Thrasymachus called them, seek to appear just, while they are unjust, as a means to trick the rest of us into believing in justice, so they can engage in injustice without oversight.

The ancient Greeks understood the nature on Man better than we do today. Today we are dazzled by technology and science, blinding us to fundamental truths of humanity. In our hubris at what our fathers have created, we forget the reality of human nature, and imagine we are gods. Yet we are reaping what we have sown, treating injustice as justice, is a sure path to economic collapse, crime, violence and human suffering. No less today that two thousand five hundred years ago. The heft of human history shows the absurdity of allowing the evil to masquerade as good while destroying the good out of ignorance of their goodness. Moreover, today the media calls those who are good, evil, because they are good!

So, we have a situation where the just are attacked, ridiculed and destroyed, for an unjust political end that is portrayed as just, while those who are unjust are lauded, protected and aided in ad for their injustice. Worse, the good today are attacked, for their goodness! To change this paradigm, stop the political violence, economic degradation, rising rates of crime and drug use, economic inequality, as well as the overt corruption in our governments… we must think for ourselves, see with our minds as well as our ears and our hearts, separate the just from the unjust… and refuse to be fooled again. Only then will Glaucon’s question be answered in the affirmative, yes, it is better to be just and considered unjust, than to be unjust and considered just, because humanity’s future depends on it.

Sincerely,

John Pepin
