Purple Crow - Realists make terrible sheep.
Just to be a realist about things... (No BS of any beLIEf system, including religion, government or societal)
Those "AA" apologies you get...
1. They were programmed to do so.
2. They are doing it to clear their own conscience.
3. The religious people involved in creating these programs are the same, they do so as a goal to 'get into heaven' (proving their worth to some kind of invisible bogey man in the sky).
I'd be more likely to believe people who are without 'Programs' and 'Religion' if they discovered things on their own about themselves and then were able to help themselves by themselves. Takes a lot of human will it seems to achieve such, and that's worthy of my attention and respect. However...
Just like the phrase "I'm from the government, I'm here to help you." Just not worth trusting - especially if we have NO CHOICE (anti-free-will human sheep (government)). Just look at all those cop videos out there - Proof I'm right because it's true. Programmed humans are just not trust-worthy, especially those who are so 'kind' and 'good' in their presentation and plastic attitude... They have the most to hide and are just better actors... sometimes... but I see right through them... even when I'm playing along for my OWN personal benefit. Free humans at least stand a chance, MAYBE, at getting my serious attention for more than a minute. Only THEY stand a chance at truly learning who I really am and thus gaining my deepest respects. (No names, but some internet chatters have actually met me in person at great distance and have claimed to me they left as 'changed people' after only a week together. And that's me in my casual mood for a brief period with a stranger I don't really trust in my home. There's your perspective. They know who they are.) :> (The rest of you... not even on the board yet... apply yourselves, if you wish.)
Just letting everyone know that I am a realist - I face things head on as they really are, not with 'hope' and other self-created or externally programmed illusions. My OWN WILL has saved my life many times more than anyone else ever bothered to care to bother to seriously attempt.
If it's your 'job description' it's not real... it's your money talking. You would not give a crap about a total stranger, me, under most if not all circumstances, normally... unless you had convinced yourself (or were programmed) to believe that your chosen 'career' means something to me, and that somehow I'd believe in the same belief system as you, and that somehow that would actually work effectively in 'changing the world for the better'... but frankly I think that assumption is short-sighted... unless you're dealing with sheep. Sheep will beLIEve just about anything - Just look at this world. I've been a 'terrible sheep' all my life. I walk with eyes open and do my best to keep humans away from me after all I've learned. It sucks... but I'm not going around forcing humans to believe me and do as I say at gun-point like the government goes and say "I'm trying to do my job, a career I chose because I care about people". (Groans) Put a sock in it, Lady! Push your keyboard buttons and write your internal memos, fellas! No sheep falls for those games, good or bad. It doesn't amount to anything to the free other than fanciful distractions and 'things to be momentarily occupied by'. It doesn't matter what type of programming you have... "Good or bad", killer or healer, I've never bought into that illusion.
If you don't KNOW ME, I mean really know me, deeply, personally, directly involved in my life for years, living with me, spent half your life understanding me.... Sorry... it's just scratching the surface of my being... barely even tickles. I honestly think people should rediscover their core motivations to discover just how much their minds have been programmed from society in every way. Religion, government, copying everyone around them ever since they were 2 years old like the little sponges they once were. Language... a meme... or a mental infection that's impossible to ever rid the planet of?... I wonder... I truly wonder. Perhaps this little 'game-breaking' code of words on this plastic screen before your eyes right now 'means something' to you. I don't know... I'm not looking (not even with my Pineal gland right now). But all these 'sincere apologies' from people I've never met who rarely if ever even type to me (digital crap) has got to stop because you're wasting your time. All I read is 'baa baa baa', even if it feels 'so right' to you (subjectively)... you're not even CLOSE to me, stop pretending you are - If you TRULY want to be close to me, apply yourself, TRULY! It'll take YEARS to get there, because that's just how real I am. I'm no sheep. Just brutal honesty from a realist who has no fear about what you 'think'. That's all. I know too much to be a sucker for the suckered or the truly manipulative. No worries though, you've got a billion other 'clients' and 'friends' out there to play with. Considering your life-span I'd say you'll never run out of them. :>
Realists make 'terrible' sheep.
