Adulthood



The cult operates by a very simple formula defined by Marx: Find something that does something good, and blame it for not being perfect, identify a victim group, preferably one actually being benefited by the good, identify their benefactors as witches, that is, as the wrongthinking people. Then, make windy claims that the imaginary victim group will have its imaginary problems obliterated once the witches are burned and the witchhunters get all the property, material or spiritual, once belonging to the witches, and then everything will be copasetic.

Arguably, the defining characteristic of adulthood and maturity is the ability to accept and even embrace reality.  Reality is often difficult, painful, ugly, imperfect, and marred by sin.  It is easy, and rather tempting, to construct an alternate reality where everything is perfect.  Mankind has chased the dream of a perfect world from time immemorial.

Now, there is nothing wrong with fantasies, nor is there anything wrong with being enamored of an ideal state.  There are great spiritual lessons to be learned simply from being able to imagine an ideal state.*  Thus, it would be foolish to condemn fantasy and idealizations as sinful.

However, the true mark of adulthood is accepting the fact that the ideal world will never come to pass in this world.  And, if it does, it will not come from the hands of men.

There is an ideal world that currently exists; that world is called heaven.  It was created by God for his children.  The ideal world, as it exists, does not exist among men or by their hands.  The fatal conceit of Marxists, who are really Satanists, is that they believe the first lie:  “Ye shall be as God…”

As such, it should come as no surprise that these Satanists are constantly on the lookout for both witches and victims.  The world is imperfect—only the most dishonest fool would claim otherwise—so there must be some sort of natural explanation.  The Marxist brand of Satanism always seeks to explain the problems of the world in the form of class oppression.  Some victim class is being oppressed by witches, so the witches must be killed and everything will be perfect again.

It doesn’t matter, as John Wright notes, if the alleged witches are doing something good.  Because what they are doing isn’t perfect, it is clearly wrong.  This is a rather infantile mindset, for only children get hung up on the intrinsic imperfection and unfairness of the real world.  It is the adult who sees all the unfairness and imperfections and resolves to do good; the child sees all the unfairness and imperfections and simply pouts and throws a tantrum.

When children become adults in body while remaining infantile in thought, they see the imperfections and unfairness in life and still throw tantrums and pout.  They don’t call it this, however; they call it protesting and raising awareness and fighting for Social Justice.

Because they try to make the world perfect, they end up destroying a lot of the good in this world.  The old cliché is true: perfect is the enemy of good.

Fundamentally, this tendency to destroy Good in the pursuit of perfection stems from the spiritual immaturity of not knowing one’s place.  It is true that the world is not perfect.  It is also true, in a theoretical sense, that the world could be made perfect.  What’s forgotten, though, is that the only one who could make the world perfect is God, not Man, and even he chose to make the world merely “good” the first go-round, so that he could make it perfect later.

And so, the mature adult is one who sees the imperfections and unfairness in life and accepts that those things are beyond his control and thus resolves to whatever good he can.  It is not his place to make the world perfect, and so he is not obsessed with creating utopia.  He leaves that for the children.

* For example, Paul uses the imagery of Christ’s relationship with the church to construct an ideal for marriage that all should aspire.  Mankind’s intuitive understanding of the marital ideal leads to some rather deep theology, and a practical side effect is that marriages can be improved simply by aspiring to a practically unattainable ideal.
