The Logic Behind “The New Normal”

 

Modern man long ago claimed that “God is Dead.” In the killing of God, we are yet coming to terms with some of the consequences. Take the matter of evil for example. With the existence of a personal God who is the definer of all reality evil has an objective definition. This is to say that it’s definition is outside of us and is not subjective and person variable. Evil is real and identifiable by God’s standards. However, having rid ourselves of God, if we are to talk about ‘evil’ at all (and some people clearly do not want to talk about it at all) then we must conclude that ‘evil’ is defined subjectively by man. Evil then is reduced to that which man does not like and finds repulsive and inconvenient to him. Further, because there is no super-mundane God to define evil and because there is no objective character to ‘evil,’ evil is reduced to that which occurs by the random evolutionary process of time + chance + circumstance as defined by each individual who labels ‘evil’ as ‘evil.’ Finally, we would have to say that as ‘evil’ is defined subjectively there can be no universal agreement as to what constitutes ‘evil.’ As such one man’s ‘evil’ most certainly be another man’s ‘good.’

As ‘evil’ is defined as only having subjective existence and reality the cure for evil for modern man is not conquering or overcoming evil.  After all, one does not conquer or overcome something that has no reality. No, the cure for evil for the modern man is reconciling himself or adjusting himself to what it is he deems ‘evil.’ In short, if modern man wants to triumph over evil then he must redefine good down in order to accommodate for evil. Modern man’s problem is not his inability to conquer evil. Modern man’s problem is that he has not reconciled himself to his circumstances. He needs to find a new normal that will serve the purpose of redefining evil so that evil is not evil after all.

This kind of mindset is seen in spades in the current exigencies of our lives as modern Western men.  A couple of days ago in London, yet another Van purposely careened into yet another London crowd yet again leaving death under its axels. Among the leaders in the West, there is no call for ridding ourselves of the evil of the stone age culture that has been encouraged unto immavasion in the West. What we get instead either explicitly or implicitly is the idea that the inhabitants of the West must adjust to the Islamification of the West. It is suggested that this kind of routine mayhem is the new normal. The onus is upon us to understand our co-religionist newcomer neighbors.

Lying underneath all of this is the idol of false “knowledge.” Increasingly the idea is postulated that if we just understood Islam and just knew that Islam was a religion of peace and if we just got to “know” our Muslim neighbors that we could more easily reconcile and adjust ourselves to the new normal. This is the concrete example of what I spoke about earlier concerning how the West is being pushed to integrate good downward into the void of evil in order to arrive at new definitions of both evil and good. Knowledge, empathy, and sympathy will be our tools for integration downward into the void and as we integrated downward into the void we will discover that what we once thought was evil was not really evil after all but was instead our failure to adjust to, reconcile with, and embrace the new norms. Evil doesn’t exist. What exists is our inability to properly relate, adjust and reconcile.

If there is any evil in the former Western lands it is the evil of the Christian White man in refusing to give up his “Christian White privilege.” The problem you see is not the evil of Islam or the evil of the Marxist work of the transvaluation of all values, or the evil of critical race theory which has brought us to this pass. No, the evil lies in the inability and unwillingness of the White Western Christian man to join the anti-Christ revolution and so voluntarily disintegrate downward into the void. White Western Christian man is resisting adjusting, he is resisting reconciling himself to the new world order, he is resisting the need to relate to the new normal. The White Western Christian man who will not adjust is the worse sociopath of all. He is the anti-Revolutionary and he must be eliminated.

The idea of a Devil who is appointed to the end of evil has been eclipsed. The Devil and evil do not exist.  The Devil is a child’s truth. The Devil is what men thought of when they were still not enlightened.  When the Christian Western White man learns to embrace the new normal what is thought of as the Devil and as evil will disappear. So, one hears the call to “give in,” and to compromise. There is no willingness to fight because evil has no objective meaning. Fighting is bad … adjusting is good. “We will overcome” has been replaced by “We will be assimilated.”

On top of everything else that has been said it needs to be observed that in coming to this place what has also been eclipsed is the Biblical concept of the individual. If the problem is that man is not properly adjusting or relating or reconciling himself to the new state of affairs then underneath of all that is the individual is not rightly related to the mob, for it is the mob mentality that one must adjust to and be reconciled with. If there is no God, and no evil with the consequent implication that man in his corporate expression is the new god and refusal to integrate downward into the void with the mob is the new evil then man qua man has disappeared into the hive and the anthill.

Finally, an unwillingness to disintegrated downward into the void means a loss of salvation for salvation in this humanist paradigm lies in the constant revolutionary integration downward into the void. Those who refuse to adjust are eternally damned.

Keep all this in mind when you hear ministers suggesting that the God of luv requires this kind of thing of good disciples of Christ. Such ministers are ministers of Satan and knowingly or unknowingly are preparing your souls to be received by their Father the devil.
