Can't say so much for all the sheep.....and one emotionless sociopath.
Here you go Greeny2,
A public education at work. Peak performance..in summary.
contrasts sharply with the secular history of men written back to ancient times as well as in "Enlightened" times in the last 100 to 150 years and the knowledge of Democide.I don't let politics, education, or a an ancient book written by primitive savages dictate to me what to believe or how to think.
There are those of us who have not taken such a big bite out of this intellectual fruit and will not do so. For we know that there is nothing new under the sun.
By R. J. Rummel..on Democide....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democide
His research shows that the death toll from democide is far greater than the death toll from war. After studying over 8,000 reports of government-caused deaths, Rummel estimates that there have been 262 million victims of democide in the last century. According to his figures, six times as many people have died from the inflictions of people working for governments than have died in battle
However..the difference is in this...
I don't get emotional very often. If I never got emotional then I wouldn't be human.
The difference is in glorifying our human traits. I choose not to do so.
I am not here to glorify my humanity. I am here to Glorify Him.
Between these two positions is a great gulf as can be seen in the posts here on Black Vault and I make note of it..in many ways. The one which grates on the souls of Humanists..glorifying human traits..is a public education. Their skin is that thin they think I post this or the Book is to tell them how to think. I post this to those who can see, hear, and understand.
