The Impossibility Of Monolithic Evil

“Hello darkness, my old friend, I’ve come to talk with you again” Paul Simon 

Evil seems seductively powerful when it is, in fact, anything but that. In the end, evil will eventually fall, there is no other option. 

Vietnam war photoLet us break down strength and power as I will use the terms. Strength is a wholesome characteristic. It is the feeling of patriotism, brotherhood where people motivated by it can do some pretty courageous actions. Power, on the other hand, is the ability to inflict your will on somebody else. To illustrate these concepts let us use the Vietnam War. The Vietnamese people were strong. They had a sense of community amongst themselves. They had this ideal that they wanted to rule over their own nation. This was a very powerful motivating factor. The United States was powerful more powerful than the Vietnamese by far. The United States had greater resources by far. They had machinegun-toting soldiers, helicopters, jet fighters, jet bombers, agent orange, and napalm. But in the end, the Vietnamese peasants kicked the Americans and their mighty war machine out of their country. Strength always wins over power.

The United States is not a strong country. We have rulers that are morally bankrupt. The endless wars on terror are a farce. In fact what the wars of terror really are is wars to control resources. For a piece of evidence, I present to you that fact that over twenty veterans commit suicide a day. Something must be troubling those poor wretches that they want to take their own lives.

The banks are powerful, the armies are powerful, the politicians are powerful, the CIA is powerful, but the people are strong. Leaders are emerging all the time trying to rectify the course the world is on. Those in power want to consolidate in their power. It is the nature of evil to never be content. Evil is sick and perverted. Why would a man with more money than he could possibly use still desire more of it? Why not take it easy and enjoy the finer things of life? Because the evil person lusts for the power the same way a junkie wants more heroin always needing more.

The whole idea of the New World Order is to break things down into three or four dominions. There will be political, monetary, military and religious. It is the goal of these sick people lusting for power that they gain some kind of authority like the pope, where people come in and bow down before them and kiss their ring.

Even if the New World Order is successful, which it cannot, these people wouldn’t be satisfied with what they have. It wouldn’t be enough to be the second or third most powerful person on planet Earth. Instead, they would lust to be number one, it simply the nature of the beast. There will always be infighting amongst evil. For you see there is no love in evil nor in power. But love abounds in strength.

One key element of the New World Order is to create a world currency which is paperless. That is all money would be reduced to digits on a computer. Your bank account would be hooked up to a computer and all your personal information would be stored together. That way those in power would be able to know everything about you with relative ease. More disturbing, if those in power don’t like what you are doing they will simply press a button on a computer and all your money will be deleted.

This cashless society is already on the way in the United States big time. When I go to the grocery store they have special coupons that can only be used by the smartphones. Also if you ever go by the welfare offices you’ll see that the government gives poor people phones. They aren’t giving out the phones because of the goodness of their hearts. We are being trained, weaned off of using cash. In the end, they will place a chip in your right hand or forehead which will have all your information. Prototypes of this have already been developed and tried.

The further we as a society walks away from what is natural the more perverse it will grow. As a result mass shootings will skyrocket. In my lifetime the killings have gone from a shocking event to a regular occurrence. Things will not get better unless people take actions to stop it. We need to create a community ourselves, independent of the government. Don’t trust politicians to do anything but to take care of themselves and exploit their power.

Eventually, everything in the United States will come crashing down. With the staggering debt, we will not be able to stop the collapse of the dollar except by hyperinflation which will rob everybody but the richest of their wealth. When millions are hungry and homeless on the street the masses will be faced with the choice of organizing or die. It is at that low point that the pendulum will start to swing the other way. Wicked despots will always rely on the common man, without the common man there would be no workers or armies. It is the common man who does not need the despots.
