Xero's other waste of space

tie it together, son!

So I’ve written in the past about facebook, cliques, the desire to lump ones self into a group, to ‘like’ this thing or that.

I’ve also recently had this ‘revelation’ of sorts regarding religious labels, their ability to divide and separate people into groups, and thus, when someone says, I’m in this religion, they are in essence, ‘liking’ a thing on facebook. Not just facebook though, but it is the real life social equivalency of this as well. They are announcing their belief structure to the world and basically inviting those who agree to join them.

Of course, to anyone who disagrees, the person is just a complete lunatic. And thus how religion is ALWAYS polarizing. An unnecessary label is just that, it’s in essence a derogatory term. And the one exception we tend to make when using derogatory terms is when it’s your own, and religion is no different. Only jews can make fun of jews, or you’re an anti-semite. And so on and so forth…

Oh, but it’s not you, it’s me!

And then there’s the fragile system of hypocrisy that all comes crumbling down if the word was somehow not true, well that’s why so many are still stuck in it to this day, for words like mine will only re-enforce their barriers towards the truth, sadly. What would you do if suddenly all your beliefs don’t match up with your little social group? They would never accept you like that! No, must cling to my feeble existence with all my might.

You’ve had your magical experience, you’ve seen your ghosts, you’ve done the rituals, you’re convinced the things you’ve come up with in your own psychosis are real, what more can I do to help you? Convince you to reject your own dysfunctional psychology some more? Maybe put you on some lithium? What’s the prescription for stuck in religion for too long and/or unable to pull one’s head out of one’s ass? Maybe some lube.
