Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 2.3 LX

[Progressive elites buy votes with various pro-objects.

These pro-objects nominally protect the victims.

In fact, these purported victims depend on largess from the Central Government. Indulgences validate the recipient’s victimhood. The recipient’s victimhood validates Progressive organizational objects.

The common word for “indulgence” is “entitlement”.]

[Some American citizens sell their votes to the (infra)sovereign religion or, even more mind boggling, are convinced that the (infra)sovereign religions are on their side.

These are the so-called ‘low information voters’ who vote along tribal affiliation, as if, through elections, one tribe can legitimately subjugate the opposing tribes.

Forget the 10 commandments!]

[How is this possible?

Americans are ‘free’. However, voters have consistently chosen ‘somethings2a’ that have empowered the Central Government (State and City governments no longer rule independent of the Center).

Or have they?

Their votes against the aggressive (infra)sovereign party go to the the other party.

This other party takes the passive common folk stance of meeting ritual demands in order to avoid accusations by the (infra)sovereign party.

Big Government Liberalism wins either way.

How crazy is that?]

[Here is a funny twist.

The elites in one political party openly represent the (infra)sovereign religion of Big Government Liberalism.

The elites in the other political party say that they do not belong to the religion, but behave as is if they do.

The same co-opposition of words3a(2a and bondage2a(1a) that marked Judaism at the time of Jesus also marks the Public Cult of Progressivism today.

[Turn on Progressive TV to see a parade similar to the Second Temple.

The elites of Big government Liberalism demand ritual purity. They demand that the average citizen give up “his” stuff. They say that the average citizen does not get along. They have buckets of nasty labels for the deplorables.

They say that the average citizen is intolerant unless “he” conforms to the multitudinous ritual decrees of the Progressive state, universities and various other sovereign-loving affiliations.]

[The mirror of the world3a or the thought experiment3a narrows the range of ‘somethings2a’ that a person can envision1a.

The Second Temple elites always acted more ritually pure relative to the subjects.

Therefore, one particular ‘something2a’ became the best option for the common folk.

What was that something2a?

Here it is:

Get along by (trying to) meet ritual demands and, most importantly, avoid being accused of violating the Law.]
