Take a stand (after sitting and thinking for a while.) It's gone too far. As Phil Dick said (and I'm paraphrasing a bit here), When the world is completely crazy, insanity is the only rational response.
WE CAN TEACH YOU HOW...
Culture has allowed this to happen, and culture has to be stopped:
RACISM MUST STOP.
HOMOPHOBIA MUST STOP.
RULE BY RELIGION MUST STOP.
RULE BY CORPORATIONS MUST STOP.
PROFITS OVER PEOPLE MUST STOP.
THE DUMBING-DOWN OF THE POPULACE MUST STOP!!!
THIS AGGRESSION WILL NOT STAND!
Education is essential, and so we started a school. ("School" means many things.)
Fictions are now as powerful as TRUTH, and so we've decided to create our own fictions to combat the SHIT they are trying to shove at us. We'll shove back, and our stories will be better. (And we know how to steal from the best, just like Shakespeare did, that old charlatan!)
Madness as Truth.
FIGHT AGAINST TIME! FIGHT AGAINST GRAVITY!
(It's so easy to just lay down and die. Not us. We'll die flying through the air!)
This is your first lesson: REALITY IS AN ILLUSION, but it's a very useful illusion and points quite well at some semi-objective, solid, physical world that can be measured and, with the help of science, understood (as well as our limited senses will allow.) THE ILLUSION WORKS, and although we know it's an illusion, until we come up with a better working model, it'll do.
THE NOBLE LIE...
As opposed to the deceitful, greedy, racist, sexist, homophobic, jingoistic lies that seem to be coming out of the U.S. government in this current era (of fake news, secret meetings, corporate welfare, and ignorance of the scientific method. Decided UN-NOBLE lies, the lot.)
The School is open. The Inner Circle is looking for new members.
