You know you’re in a cult when assimilation supersedes the natural, inborn sense of self-preservation. The people walking off the cliff like so many lemmings aren’t doing it for something noble like eternity, rebirth, or spirituality, but rather to virtue signal to their contemporaries that they have exceeded all others in embracing the fragmented, illogical diatribes of the mob.
If you were to attempt to understand the circular reasoning some elected officials are giving for going along with the self-destructive narrative that the only thing causing criminality is the existence of law enforcement, you’d likely get a bloody nose, if not have an outright seizure. You see, the key to unlocking a blissful utopia wherein all men can live like brothers, walking hand in hand through a field of daisies while unicorns defecated rainbow cotton candy and birds sang in chorus, was doing away with the police.
How could we not have seen it until now? You do away with the police, and you do away with criminals. Genius in its simplicity! If there were no law and no police, then criminals would never be counted as lawbreakers, nor would there be anyone to deter them.
I know what you’re thinking, and you’re wrong, by the way. The fact that you’re a tax-paying citizen and you feel you have a reasonable expectation not to get mugged inside your own home is just your privilege showing. How dare you instigate the robbing of your own goods by having them? If you lived in a tent and ate free-range rat more often than not, then no one would try to rob you, now would they?
It’s all your fault for working hard, and applying yourself, and building a family. It’s all your fault sacrificing, saving, scraping, doing odd jobs, and budgeting so you could put a down payment on a house. Those callouses on your hands and those blisters on your feet and that aching back and those creaking knees, that’s all privilege.
Why encourage people to apply themselves, go to a trade school, put in an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay, when we can steer them toward majoring in the reproductive cycle of the Hmong people and graduate with a worthless degree and a quarter-million dollars in debt? Why insist that you have to earn your way through life when you can just bludgeon a retiree and take it?
In my humble opinion, Darwin was just a doddering nutter who married his cousin, but some mornings I find myself hoping he was right. If only survival of the fittest was the way of natural law, then chances are better than good that things would work themselves out eventually. Still, we have built so many crutches, and safety nets excused insanity so often, that if there was any truth to the mechanism of natural selection, we have nullified it. We turned a blind eye to destructive and counterproductive policy so consistently that the weakest and least capable are now driving the bus and steering it right into the parapet.
Once the bodies start piling up, once social workers with clipboards and No. 2 pencils realize that the only way to curb aggression is with aggression, once criminals begin to run amok, unchecked and absent fear of answering for their crimes, it will be too late. It will be near impossible to return to some semblance of law and order.
You don’t need a crystal ball or prophetic insight to see where we’re headed. You don’t need revelation to understand how this will all play out. But that’s okay; you were privileged anyway.
With love in Christ,
