I pushed a new button! – good vs. evil
January 19, 2008
Pardon my suckage once again, I could not draw a pair of angel wings to save my life. You would laugh if you knew how much time was wasted on this stupid thing. It looks like a moose with icicles. The entire post is suckalicious, so at least it’s consistent.
As part of an ongoing existential crisis I sought outside sources, and as any good radical feminist knows, those sources included both pro and con. We get to be smug because religious fanatics and the like, so it goes, only consult those whose prior agreement reinforces the desired outcome. This guy questions how many steps over the line are allowed before one’s character changes from the box marked ‘evil’ into the the box marked ‘good’. Feminazis are naturally curious about such things, you know. Our evilness may be in jeopardy. He explains my gravitating towards stupid stuff:
“This splitting of things into all-good and all-bad, with the attendant projection and scapegoating, appears to start in us as infants. Since it continues into childhood, it explains why fairy tales use such stark concepts of good and evil. It’s the only thing children can understand. Unfortunately, it also continues with us into adulthood, with catastrophic results. It is an infantile defense, a concept fit only for cartoons and fairy tales, but one with which we as adults consistently judge the complex world with all its shades of gray.”
I of course do not like this, but it gets better:
“One interpretation of the story of the Garden of Eden supports the view that projection starts in us when we are very young. I personally think this myth makes more sense if we consider Adam and Eve to be about four-years-old, because they are as unaware and ignorant as apples.
In the story, the first thing Adam does, when caught breaking the rules, is to point at Eve and say, “She made me do it.” Eve, no different than Adam, then shifts blame onto the serpent. “It’s his fault, not mine,” she says. An old story, but a very perceptive one that clearly tells us that scapegoating is one of the first things we do. One interpretation of the story claims Adam and Eve’s scapegoating, and refusal to accept responsibility for their actions, is what got them kicked out of the Garden of Eden, thereby bringing evil into the world.
Although I certainly don’t believe Adam and Eve were real people, and the story is just a myth (although a very wise one), it suggests that if they had not scapegoated each other, or had accepted responsibility for what they had done, they might have been allowed to stay. The moral, obviously, is that one of the first steps back to the Garden of Eden (to the extent it can exist in this world) is acceptance of responsibility and the cessation of scapegoating. It can’t be done through violence.”
Oh, so according to another thing he wrote, I’m not really evil. HA! Of course he’s lying. Except I’m feeling a budding kinship with clueless twits, so perhaps a downgrade to merely wicked is in order. What does it say when even a vile feminazi feels sympathy for men? This is terrible news. Worst case scenario, I could end up dating my neighbor – holy crap.
Next post: either transgenderism or a really awesome surprise!
