MORALS: THE SILENT TREATMENT | nationalsalvation.net

About the time we developed speech, older men began to be asked to explain things.

The old men were more and more worthless as they aged for hunting or any of the practical things. They found that they became indispensable as they began to EXPLAIN things.

And nobody Googled them.

Why is this information produced?

The old men began to pour out explanations. They could name the gods from whose spittle the universe got its beginning. They could give you the True Explanation for everything.

Any old man who said, "I don't know" was risking his reason for existence. The moment anyone asked a basic Whitakerism: "Why was this information produced?" one has a whole worldview of intellectual history.

History makes it very complicated. The first old men asked these questions evolved into shamans, priests, philosophers, Intellectuals, Authorities, and Mommy Professors. One thing we become aware of is that the Truth of today will not be Truth of tomorrow. But the explanation, as usual with Whitakerisms, is so basic and simple that no one dwells on it.

Least of all the shamans, priests, philosophers, Intellectuals, Authorities and Mommy Professors.

This information is produced for different markets in each generation. And each generation is absolutely convinced that Truth has been EVOLVING to the Ultimate Truth.

Which means the Truth you have now. In every generation, people use the term "modern thought" without the slightest idea how ridiculous that makes them.

And this is where we are stuck until we start questioning the process itself.

But the moment you SEE the process for what it is, you begin to laugh out loud when someone says "modern thought." Where do you BEGIN to contradict someone who says "The sky is purple?"

People will openly express rage at your "questioning their most deeply held beliefs." But if questioning their most deeply held beliefs is offensive, a Whitakerism is declaring those "modern" beliefs totally absurd.

Whitakerisms make you very unpopular. One is making it clear that what people call "Their most deeply held beliefs" are actually as silly as the population in The Emperor's New Clothes."

No one is comfortable around you. You have totally abandoned the usual discussion of Both Sides, even radicals on Both Sides, all of whom think and talk about their "sides" on modern thought that is presently being discussed.

So Creator in Iceland is getting the Silent Treatment.

Get used to it.
