    Potent Naomi Wolf article on God, evil, the big picture

wow is she a courageous person.

I think many readers here will identify with her experiences of her former community and formerly likeminded friends. Many comments worth reading as well, if you are feeling alone.

And as for the larger topic, reading it in print is sobering and thought-provoking.

Fantastic article! I particularly like this passage:

…Months before, I had asked a renowned medical freedom activist how he stayed strong in his mission as his name was besmirched and he faced career attacks and social ostracism. He replied with Ephesians 6:12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians%206%3A12&version=KJV

I had thought of that a lot in the intervening time. It made more and more sense to me as the days passed.

I confessed at that gathering in the woods with the health freedom community, that I had started to pray again. This was after many years of thinking that my spiritual life was not that important, and certainly very personal, almost embarrassingly so, and thus it was not something I should mention in public.

I told the group that I was now willing to speak about God publicly, because I had looked at what had descended on us from every angle, using my normal critical training and faculties; and that it was so elaborate in its construction, so comprehensive, and so cruel, with an almost superhuman, flamboyant, baroque imagination made out of the essence of cruelty itself — that I could not see that it had been accomplished by mere humans working on the bumbling human level in the dumb political space.

I felt around us, in the majestic nature of the awfulness of the evil around us, the presence of “principalities and powers” — almost awe-inspiring levels of darkness and of inhuman, anti-human forces. In the policies unfolding around us I saw again and again anti-human outcomes being generated: policies aimed at killing children’s joy; at literally suffocating children, restricting their breath, speech and laughter; at killing school; at killing ties between families and extended families; at killing churches and synagogues and mosques; and, from the highest levels, from the President’s own bully pulpit, demands for people to collude in excluding, rejecting, dismissing, shunning, hating their neighbors and loved ones and friends.

I have seen bad politics all of my life and this drama unfolding around us goes beyond bad politics, which is silly and manageable and not that scary. This — this is scary, metaphysically scary. In contrast to hapless human mismanagement, this darkness has the tinge of the pure, elemental evil that underlay and gave such hideous beauty to the theatrics of Nazism; it is the same nasty glamour that surrounds Leni Riefenstahl films.

In short, I don’t think humans are smart or powerful enough to have come up with this horror all alone….

That has been my perspective all along. Though I’m pessimistic about most people’s morals and spirituality, even I have been surprised how many have fallen so far so fast. I’m reminded of the snarky comment of some wise comedian whose name I can’t remember, since it captures the essence of so many people’s sudden loss of principles and values.

I don’t have values. I have sentiments, which are like visiting rights for actual values.

Even though the Covid narrative is crumbling before our eyes, the spiritual battle with evil will go on. Since it MUST go on, it seems the forces of darkness are going to have to shift to some other focus and narrative. How evil and deadly that will be I can only imagine. Will they release a much more deadly virus like Marburg or Ebola or SMALL POX? Will they start a world war? Will they collapse the world economy and monetary system? Will they do all that at once? I am firmly enlisted in the battle but I’m not looking forward to it.

”Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor.”

Well written article.

It clearly demonstrates the “mass psychosis” that has afflicted the vaccine cult.

    So what comes next?

I think smallpox comes next personally. Good R value. High but not planet killing lethality. Vaccines available to give to the elite so they cannot get killed by accident…

For a time such as this. We should all take heed of these words from Queen Esther.
