The United States of Conspiracists.

  1. 3. ‘Apocalyptic Power’ Theories: These are the most dangerous conspiracy theories.  The conspiracy theorists who hold these beliefs argue that a group of people, either large or small, is attempting to destroy the cultural, social and/or political world of the conspiracy theorist. The conspiracy theorist argues that he/she is not only ignorant of secrets, or out of the loop of secret power, he/she is actually a threatened victim of the conspirators. Usually, these conspiracies focus upon governments, but they also can tie into the ‘Secret Power’ conspiracies in the belief of a small cadre having control over levers of power. These conspiracies are the most dangerous because of their absolutist, zero-sum focus.  For the believers in these conspiracies, there is no middle ground. You either fight, or you die.  You gain your freedom, or become a slave. Every event that is read into the conspiracy is another sign of the endgame; the theorist’s world is believed to be crumbling down, and hence, it is only natural that violence may be necessary. Those who do not hold to these conspiracies then are more than ignorant sheep to be looked down upon. The person not accepting the conspiracy becomes part of the conspiracy.  This type of conspiracy theory promotes a Manichean notion of reality. The conspiracy theorist is not laughing. It is deadly serious to him/her.

Hot As Hell (Not!)

A bit of humor at the expense of Ol’ Scratch

The Return of the Modern Philosopher

The Devil, Hell, heat wave, poetry, short story, Sundays With Satan Short Story Series, humor, Modern PhilosopherO how I abhor it,

When foolish mortals,

A species who wasted

The gift of Free Will,

And is on the verge

Of destroying the planet

With which they were gifted,

Try to tell me,

The Prince of Darkness

And Ruler of Eternal Hellfire,

That the current temperature

Is hot as Hell!

Such imbeciles!

Why do they speak

With such confidence

About things of which

They have absolutely no knowledge?

The coldest corner of Hell

Is exponentially hotter

Than the warmest place

On the precious planet

They seem absolutely hellbent

On demolishing!

Stop inserting the name

Of my beloved kingdom,

Which will still be here

Long after you have all

Returned to the dust,

Into your weather reports!

You have no concept

Of how hot it is

In Hell,

But mark my words,

That will change

For so many of you

In the coming years!

Speak not of Hell again,

Hate in the Trans Community

Words of advice for any community…hating what you do not understand or that which makes you feel uncomfortable does a disservice not only to the people you direct that negative perception onto but to yourself…how can people see the good in oneself if all there is is words of irrationality

Hate in any community is terrible, but when it happens in a community you are part of it always seems worse than others because you are directly affected by it. Being part of the LGBTQ community I have encountered a lot of hate from outside the community as well as inside the community. When I identified as a lesbian it was lesbians against gays and vice versa. I find the hatred to be even worse in the trans community. I’m not really sure why its worse in the trans community and maybe its my own perception, but I feel like its worse in the trans community than it was for me in the lesbian community. The hatred isn’t just transmen against transwomen it’s also transmen against transmen and transwomen against transwomen. We are all apart of the same community and should be supporting one another through our journeys whether they…
