As the world has changed it has become more authentic.
The niceties that once glued society together have been stripped away.
As fear has taken over, so to has mankind’s natural distrust and hate for others.
Differences that once were superficial have become meaningful;
Divisions that once could be easily bridged, are now insurmountable.
Authentic man is a divisive and caustic man.
Authentic man is hateful of other men.
Fear has now become commonplace and accepted as normal.
Fear has become the overcoat of our lives and festered into our souls.
Respect for our fellow man is replaced with a sickening desire to create a persistent divide: a caste system.
Fear is its fuel and what gives a caste system its power.
The castes and what divide them really are inconsequential—as long as they perceive as real and meaningful to the fearful and authentic.
Authentic man is dirty and brutal.
Authentic man is Cain; he will slay his brother for the greater good.
Authentic man is what we are left with when we strip away all nobility, all humility, all love and replace it with fear.
Fear is the crucible in which authentic man is formed. In which hate can fester.
Bring forth, man, now your caste systems and your medical apartheids.
Bring forth your rigidity, tyranny, and your distrust.
Bring forth your raw violence and misery.
Decry ideas themselves as antithetical to your aims; call them controversial and acts of terrorism.
Burn your books; shut out ideas; ban all those who speak against you.
Authentic man is brutal and lazy.
This tired game has been played many times before and it is a story told and retold by inauthentic men.
Authentic man is predictable.
Weaponize the state against its enemies;
Make all those who speak against the “greater good” vilified and ushered into the second caste.
Glorify Machiavelli as godlike; his aims are righteous and just.
Replace God and all forms of Truth with the god of science. Or better yet replace Him altogether with the Authentic State.
Authentic man shall make up the State and its aims will be righteous.
Its aims will be the will of the People;
Its aims will be Divine!
Authentic man, working through the State, will be all-knowing, infallible, and ruthless in its perfection.
All those who reject the divine, Machiavellian aims of the State must be purified.
The unfaithful must be purified.
The pure and faithful religion of the State must use any means possible to purify the unfaithful.
Those belonging to the other caste will be expunged and repudiated.
Their false religion is dangerous.
They are barely human.
They are like feral dogs or diseased rats to be exterminated.
The Authentic State and its holy followers will weed them out.
The Authentic will trample their false ideology, their false God, their false Truth, and purify the poison they spread with their tongues.
They must not be allowed to speak.
Burn their books.
Cut out their tongues.
Ideas are violence.
Ideas that reject the State’s ideology are terrorism.
Terrorists must be dealt with. Violently. And with precision.
Authentic man will make them pay.
The State will crush all Truth.
Authentic man has ordained it so from on high.
