Stand Up for the Progressive Agenda that the Majority of America Already Agrees With
I don't know what it is with right wingers and Republicans. They seem to have hijacked over the years the word "patriotism", the American flag, these things. And it's an odd thing. I have been thinking about this lately. Because the true patriots are those who believe the important thing is to ask questions, you know. To dissent when necessary.

Why Protest? Is it really worth the effort?
Protests lines are to the real security detail like a game of chess; let the lower echelon (cops/pawns) defend the line against quacks (pawns) and the specialists will protect the 'dignitary' against any technical/qualified/strategic threat. Protesters are not a threat they are a nuisance; quacks worrying about snipers is thinking too much of themselves. Similarly, cops who think that they are providing "security" are equally quixotic to their own importance. Local police are required to set up a line to create an illusion of a meaningful place to chant. Cops in blue uniforms at protests are authoritative straw men; their only importance is to give the protesters an object to press their resentment; they are a distraction like a magician would use while the real magic (deception) is happening someplace else.

Solitary Practitioners in the Protest Movement?
A "solitary practitioner" in the pagan world, is someone who works alone, not with a coven. They are embraced as part of the overall pagan community, but they work alone. I wonder if there is a place for the "solitary practitioner" in the protest/anarchist community as well.

Were the Gnostics the Original Christians : Part Three Enlightenment
In part one of this discussion I made the case that the violence and threats of the Christian conversion experience leads to a traumatic stress disorder common to victims of violence, which then evolves into a Paranoid Personality Disorder. In part two I discussed the origins of the doctrine of sin, since it is the fear inculcated by this doctrine that creates the disorder. This disorder is regarded as very difficult to treat, but the treatment involves the gradual introduction of doubt. Given the harmful effect of the doctrine of sin (paranoia) and the irrational inconsistency of the doctrine (it is reactionary) a satisfactory conclusion can be drawn the revolutionary doctrine of Gnosticism was the original Christian doctrine in that, unlike the doctrine of sin, its revolutionary philosophy is match (rather than a hindrance) to the cross symbol. (This version is properly formatted)

Were the Gnostics the Original Christians : Part Two Sin
The doctrine of sin is so irrational when considered as a philosophy, riven with internal contradictions, that it must have been that case that such an unworthy doctrine was ever accepted in the first place is a testament to just how difficult it was to obscure the political meaning of the cross symbol, and just how desperate was the attempt to obscure this meaning, in that a philosophy so irrational and inconsistent was the final resort, apparently nothing better ever having come along that would do the job.

Brent Herbert 24.07.2004 05:31
Were the Gnostics the Original Christians : Part One Paranoia
Traditionalist Christians frequently use metaphors of violent assault to describe 'the day they accepted the Lord.' This experience is frequently equated with a 'near death experience' and such dangerous experiences are known to be the cause of Traumatic Stress Disorders...this would mean that many obviously disturbed Christians are actually suffering from a combination of personality disorders, triggered by the violence and dangerous threats of the Christian Conversion experience (which means then that these individuals are sick, rather than sinful). This leads us to ask how something which is so harmful in its effects can ever be considered a good thing.
