Identify the Enemy: Stupidity

Identify the Enemy: Stupidity
Once I was told that if I had any enemies it was a good thing, because it meant that at one time in my life, I actually stood up for something and I liked that idea.
It made sense.

If you play both fields and try to people please everything, you end up with a pretty weak backbone, I think.  You'd be hard to trust.

It was an interesting thought since I have basically been working my entire life to train myself to be less confrontative and stand for less.

I played sports.  I've always been a little intense and competitive..but I learned that this wasn't always very lady-like, nor did it do very much to make a difference in the first place, because I don't really like fighting.  In fact I hate it, so I only really engage in it when it's important because I know I am right.

Lately, one of the themes in my life have been these types of thoughts,  "Don't sound too intense Caitlin.  Don't be an alarmist Caitlin.  This is not very feminine Caitlin, you're being pretty aggressive!' 
There are so many moments when hypocrisy can sneak it's way into your behavior to suddenly discredit all merit of your truth and I know that, but I don't care, because literally NOTHING else has worked to get any attention here.
The fact is, there IS an enemy and nobody seems to want to acknowledge it, so they keep living their ordinary lives with their heads in the sand. 

It's expected.  I'm not surprised.
Either way, I exist in the metaphysical matter of life where the spiritual world  is and there is definitely a big war going on up there.
Most recently, the enemy has manifested in most things that are not so obviously evil, but rather obvious in that they lack a soul.  Technology, American Society and this Love & Light movement, with no Christ.

There are many, many spiritualists out there teaching all love, all positive thoughts, just like liberals.  They have even gone so far as to vilify the spiritualists who are like me and say that an evil exists.  There IS and it's NOT a reflection of myself.   It's not a mirror.  Some of us are being attacked and you are too!
Evil WANTS you to vilify me!  It WANTS you to REJECT the truth.

Hello?  It's the playbook of a con-man.  Watch Scooby-Doo for Christ's sake.  This is how evil operates and always has, since the beginning of time!

It doesn't run around like the boogey man all obvious.  That's not how it works!
Trying to identify the true nature of the enemy has been a bit more of a puzzle for me, but I kind of think that right now, it's like this.
Narcissism.  Viruses.  Cancer.  Robots.  Liberals.  Just kidding, they're not evil, they're just infected by it.

It's all those types of disconnected, self serving, unreasonable things.  But then I noticed something that all these entities had in common...

They had no spirit. No life. No conscience, unless they were plugged into a source.
They themselves did not exist independently.
A cancer cell doesn't begin as a cancer cell and grow into a giant cancery organism.  Or they do and we just don't realize that we are walking amongst giant cancers. I haven't thought that idea for more than the time is has taken me to type it out, but it would definitely explain why my dog doesn't like amazon trucks very much.
Cancer cells are just normal cells that are mutated into stupid.  The get dumb.  They are so stupid that they literally kill the only thing that is giving it life!  It's totally unstainable.
  Viruses are alien weapons, as far as I'm concerned.  They also don't do anything unless they have a host.  They're just like weird specks of invisible glitter, ready to get plugged in and take over the world, same with robots.  Robots are dead until they get hooked up to electricity and all these things are so stupid, they eventually kill whatever brought them to life, which is why I think the enemy uses good natured stupid people as their weapon and this is why.
First of all, buck up and get past the word stupid.  You're stronger than that.  You don't have to be so offended, after all, it's a WORD and sticks and stones will break yours bone, but you know the rest, so hold on to that.
There is Good and Evil
There is Service to Others and Service to Self
There is Intelligent and Stupid.
Stupid means ignorant.
Intelligent means enlightened.
Stupidity and intelligence are completely separate qualities of the human condition.  One makes a stupid good human dangerous, one makes a stupid bad human not.
You can have a very good natured stupid person and they will still ruin the world.
Or, you could have a very evil stupid person and they will not.
The good natured stupid person is well intentioned, but everything they do goes against their own self interest and they can't seem to be reasoned with or predicted by a good natured intelligent person.
The evil stupid person might TRY to destroy the world, but they are so stupid that everything they do goes against the effort of what they want. Their behavior is not very easy to predict, but they can be identified by their randomness and conquered by the good intelligent humans.

Evil intelligent humans know the secret weapon is the good nature of stupid people, so they try and make good people stupid, which is where the saying "the road to hell is paved with good intentions" comes from.
So, this means, Good Intelligent humans have to try and stop the Evil Intelligent humans from making good humans stupid and evil humans smart....
Both sides of the political parties had good people that got played.

Insert the Donald.

It appears to me that the argument against Donald Trump is that he has allowed himself to look like an Evil Intelligent human, who is trying to benefit from the evil nature of stupid people...but this logic does not follow my model.

In my model, an evil natured stupid person, will always fail, because they make no sense, so they can be identified by their randomness or they will self implode.  They are the threats that we have to identify.  The terrorists, if you will.  They just want bloodshed and evil.  Stupid Evil people are a threat to humanity, 100% and it's kind of good they got shook out of the closet, in some ways.  I'd rather wrangle a demon I know, then a demon I don't know.  Let's just say it like that.

Now, before I go any further, let me take a moment to define what I mean by evil.  I mean possessed by something that makes them act bad.  A demon, depression, trauma, anxiety, mental disturbances, poverty, who knows, it's just something significant we want to heal them from, before they hurt anyone or themselves.

Next, we have the good natured stupid people, but they all seem to avoid advocating for Trump, because of their good nature and since they are stupid (because of the media), they don't act in a way that is in their own self interest, which is the nature of we see them, leaning to the left, away from Conservatives, which does not follow my model, since a good natured, stupid person is the WEAPON OF THE INTELLIGENT EVIL PERSON!  So, if that was Trump, wouldn't that mean he's NOT the evil one?

Wouldn't you think, the evil intelligent person WANTS them on the LEFT SIDE OF THINGS?!  I said it before, Liberalism is the Trojan Horse....I'm not wrong about that.
Next, it appears that good and highly intelligent people have taken up the support of Trump as his army and we know that they consider the battle to be against the highly intelligent evil people, so here we are.

Trump called out all the evil stupid people out of the closet, so they can self destruct or be monitored.
Then, all the intelligent people started to notice what he was doing and began to understand what was going on.

So now, we are seeing good natured stupid people holding onto their ideals for their dear life, while simultaneously choking out the world, while evil stupid people are getting arrested for trafficking humans and good stupid people being victimized or used as pawns for an evil agenda.

It would appear that intelligent Evil people are in a Checkmate with Donald Trump in the spiritual realm and they are freaking out because they have no clue what their next move should be...

I suppose Christ has to weigh in as well and it depends on the status of the Evil Intelligent people's access to weapons.  How locked and loaded are the Good Natured Stupid People...and how do the Good Natured Intelligent People get them to put down the gun?  We got democrats with their hands on the nuke codes now and we don't them starting any new wars, so we have to play strategically.

My point is, stupidity, ignorance, or I suppose I should use the least inflammatory term, lack of knowledge is dangerous....more dangerous than evil.
If I wasn't able to make the point clear with my own example, here is a statement for you that is written by Deitrich Bonhoeffer, a man hung by Adolf Hitler in 1945 because he was against the Nazi movement.   It's said that this man was a strong influence for Martin Luther King Jr and the Civil Rights Movement.

The reason this statement is important is because I think we need to understand that there is no amount of legislation or laws offered on paper or in words that are going to change the HEART of a man. The heart of a man will still hate, even if he is told that he can't. 

We have built a society of rule followers where behavior is managed by a fear of getting in trouble, not a moral conviction within and THAT is the difference and the problem with our society. We should be creating a society where people choose certain behaviors because it is the right thing to do and it is good for them...not because they are afraid of getting in trouble. This type of rule abiding society lacks integrity and morality. It becomes a giant facade and a smoke show. Who becomes the better performer? The better con?!
The problem with democracy is when the majority on either side are good people who get stupified.

This is exactly how a democracy falls.


‘Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice. One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented by use of force. Evil always carries within itself the germ of its own subversion in that it leaves behind in human beings at least a sense of unease. Against stupidity we are defenseless. Neither protests nor the use of force accomplish anything here; reasons fall on deaf ears; facts that contradict one’s prejudgment simply need not be believed- in such moments the stupid person even becomes critical – and when facts are irrefutable they are just pushed aside as inconsequential, as incidental. In all this the stupid person, in contrast to the malicious one, is utterly self-satisfied and, being easily irritated, becomes dangerous by going on the attack. For that reason, greater caution is called for than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous. ‘If we want to know how to get the better of stupidity, we must seek to understand its nature. This much is certain, that it is in essence not an intellectual defect but a human one. There are human beings who are of remarkably agile intellect yet stupid, and others who are intellectually quite dull yet anything but stupid. We discover this to our surprise in particular situations. The impression one gains is not so much that stupidity is a congenital defect, but that, under certain circumstances, people are made stupid or that they allow this to happen to them. We note further that people who have isolated themselves from others or who live in solitude manifest this defect less frequently than individuals or groups of people inclined or condemned to sociability. And so it would seem that stupidity is perhaps less a psychological than a sociological problem. It is a particular form of the impact of historical circumstances on human beings, a psychological concomitant of certain external conditions. Upon closer observation, it becomes apparent that every strong upsurge of power in the public sphere, be it of a political or of a religious nature, infects a large part of humankind with stupidity. It would even seem that this is virtually a sociological-psychological law. The power of the one needs the stupidity of the other. The process at work here is not that particular human capacities, for instance, the intellect, suddenly atrophy or fail. Instead, it seems that under the overwhelming impact of rising power, humans are deprived of their inner independence, and, more or less consciously, give up establishing an autonomous position toward the emerging circumstances. The fact that the stupid person is often stubborn must not blind us to the fact that he is not independent. In conversation with him, one virtually feels that one is dealing not at all with a person, but with slogans, catchwords and the like that have taken possession of him. He is under a spell, blinded, misused, and abused in his very being. Having thus become a mindless tool, the stupid person will also be capable of any evil and at the same time incapable of seeing that it is evil. This is where the danger of diabolical misuse lurks, for it is this that can once and for all destroy human beings. ‘Yet at this very point it becomes quite clear that only an act of liberation, not instruction, can overcome stupidity. Here we must come to terms with the fact that in most cases a genuine internal liberation becomes possible only when external liberation has preceded it. Until then we must abandon all attempts to convince the stupid person. This state of affairs explains why in such circumstances our attempts to know what ‘the people’ really think are in vain and why, under these circumstances, this question is so irrelevant for the person who is thinking and acting responsibly. The word of the Bible that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom declares that the internal liberation of human beings to live the responsible life before God is the only genuine way to overcome stupidity. ‘But these thoughts about stupidity also offer consolation in that they utterly forbid us to consider the majority of people to be stupid in every circumstance. It really will depend on whether those in power expect more from people’s stupidity than from their inner independence and wisdom.’
