Perversion? We're humans. Trying to trick, misguide and otherwise 1-up the other guy for our own personal benefit is our unfortunate nature.

Religion has it all backwards.

Sure the world is far from perfect, but at least our elites feel they need to manufacture a moral reason to attack and kill another group of people now. Only a few hundred years ago, they did it just because they could and made no apologies for it.

We are slowly but surely becoming "higher beings", and provided we don't destroy ourselves in the interm, eventually humanity will all be "christlike" for real, not for the fear of punishment or a perceived need for myth and controlling institutions.

You bring the sarcasm on yourself Mickiel.

To the readers..
Understand that it's not you, it's them. This can be surprisingly difficult, considering that impossible people have complete mastery of blaming skills. If you're dealing with an impossible person, you're probably being told on a regular basis that every conceivable thing is your fault. It isn't.
