Weaponizing the language closes the doors of human perception.

Weaponizing the language closes the doors of human perception. Political correctness is only one such example. Today philosophers and theologians [religio-philosophers], scientists and legal theorists; social, cultural, political, economic, and behavioral theorists [philosopher-kings and academicians] too – all conspire to enslave the mind and to govern human action in the name of humanity… or science… and community. These priests of the mind speak of the precautionary principle, then they speak of noblesse oblige, all the while citing their erudition and mere attempts to do good by others. They insist it is their responsibility to protect us… from ourselves.

When such doors are systematically/cumulatively closed, enslavement of the mind – of each and every man, woman, and child born into this material/spiritual plane of existence – tippy-toes right on in.

Is this all in keeping with some spurious attempt to deny other men free will? Is this a well-meaning, yet misguided, attempt to deny Man his connection to God and to unalienable rights? To Logos? Is yearning to be free now thought somehow untenable? A lost cause? This is often what happens – and will happen – when the open doors of perception are closed. Man will have enslaved himself while consigning future generations to the same slavery he has himself unwittingly proscribed… as his Final Solution… today.

For slavery can be brought about slowly through a subtle imposition of force; and it always springs from those same hearts and minds… of thoroughly misguided… laughingly fallible… men.


The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.
