Anyone Else Not Give a Shit About Notre Dame?

The Catholic Church has always helped Tyrants stay in power by convincing people with genetically weak minds, such as Europeans, to accept the tyranny on earth in exchange for very literal pie-in-the-sky-when-you-die (it's a lie).  It has been doing this since its inception.  It can be argued that this has been its purpose since the beginning.

You think Emperor Constantine was actually led to christianity by some vision in the sky?  crappity smack no.  He heard about how dedicated new converts to this cult were and he thought, 'Shit, I could sell that to the hayseeds!'  Since then, church leaders and despots have worked hand in glove to keep people from realizing their potential to be free human beings.

The Catholic church tacitly supported Hitler and turned blind eyes to the holocaust.  They supported one Latin-American dictator after another.  Their reaction to priests diddling little kids is to send the priests to new parishes so they can have "fresh meat."

I say scape that land to the ground and sell it to the highest bidder and let it be used for a hotel for Asian business leaders looking to invest.

You're just in a troll mood tonight, huh?  It's like you held in a fart all day, huh?  Now it's all just coming out.  Never trust a fart at your advanced age.  You may want to change your underwear

Tom Sawyer:  Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated.

Not exactly burned to the ground.  I'm not exactly devastated, but your guys are pretty crass.  It's not just a church, it was an amazing architectural achievement with the flying buttresses.  And it was filled with invaluable art.  Sounds like some was saved, some not.

I was going to see it in a few weeks when I visit my daughter in Paris.  Oh well.  Still plenty to do.  I've seen it from the outside, but had never been inside

You sound like you're justifying those swell ISIS guys who have been destroying evidence of ancient Middle Eastern civilizations simply because they weren't Islamic civilizations.

It's the sort of thing barbarians do, and it's fascinating that you approve of it.

The whole thing could easily be a false-flag operation.

Just think of 9/11 itself: civil engineers have written an open letter that the collapse of the towers wasn't consistent with the official story; the Saudi state being intimately involved, whereas, normally, if they don't follow the imperial program, the killing of one journalist will threaten the head of their government!

And look what the government could 'achieve' legislatively once 'the country came together.'

This is very true but if I were you, I wouldn't knock this concept without understanding its full consequences. This weak-mindedness and willingness to submit to authority has given Europeans the undeserved success they've experienced over the last thousand years.

When Muslims rightfully acquired land by right of conquest, which was the going rate at the time, what did the Europeans do? They tattled to the Pope. And the Crusades happened.

Europeans will always have someone to tattle to because they willingly support, obey, and bow. This means the Pope (or whoever else) has a resource in Europeans and an interest in their livestock.

As history has shown, this is a deal with no less than the devil.

Europeans have succeeded by reaping the undeserved rewards of slavery far earlier than most people realise.

Let's take a simple example: A toll booth. If everyone is honest, and simply obeys without reason, the toll booth does not need a gate.

Governments of such people can accumulate unchecked power to "defend" their people because they basically don't have to police their citizenry. Each metaphorical toll booth they can leave the gate off, translates to a monetary advantage.

Because Europeans are weak-minded, obedient, flaccid sheep who won't break a rule even when logic dictates it for their own self-benefit, houses in white neighbourhoods do not need bars on their windows.

This is the real white privilege: The one white people still openly protect... and the one that needs to be destroyed before all others.

To do so, you need that:

1. Europeans must never be let to have a government that protects their interests.

Functional generational monarchies must be precluded at all costs. Governments that are easily incentivised for grab-and-go (term limits and the like) are necessary.

If they get a government that favours them, they will win.

2. There must be unlimited immigration into their countries.

If they have capitalism, they'll die off naturally, but if they have socialism, they will thrive under their undeserved privilege if you let them wall off their societies to preserve that privilege.

3. Rules must always advantage the breaker of rules over the follower of rules.

This is absolutely critical. Europeans will follow rules without reason, meaning rules that advantage the followers of said rules over those who rightly break them will ultimately cause Europeans to win.

There must be rules, but they must be lax and unenforceable.

This is why you're a libertarian, Don.

Nothing accomplishes the above better than the Non-Aggression Principle.

The NAP, taken strictly, is unfollowable except by pacifism. You can't know that someone walking away with your lawnmower really has your lawnmower, so using force against them would be aggression.

According to Nozick, private security companies are empowered to prevent the use of an unapproved method of justice against its clients, whether its clients are guilty or not. Needless to say, shooting people because you think they have your lawnmower will be unapproved.

This means that under the NAP, people who commit to following the NAP will be fish in a barrel. It will be open season.

You're a libertarian, Don.

Libertarianism gives you everything you want.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Everything is religion.  Never mind Hinduism or Christianity.  You might think your capitalism or socialism or libertarianism is pure logic.  You might think your attachment to dollars or gold or Bitcoin is pure logic.  All are religions.

A religion tends to belittle its competition by pointing out that they're based on faith.  All are based on faith.

Religion is everywhere and can't be wiped out, the reason being it's the 'killer app' of humanity.  It is what enables strangers to co-operate and build powerful and big organizations and structures.  (It was what enabled Homo sapiens to commit genocide against all other humans starting about 70K years ago -- humans who didn't have religion and thus could only work in small bands.)  It's the only thing proven to do so.  We have to deal with this reality, for better or worse.

The extent of my concern is, "Well that's too bad".
