Collectivism is the main weapon against individualism. It can have many forms: society or monotheistic religion. All forms of collectivism are made of individual people. They are the core of the group they belong to. Without them group doesn’t exist. This should be always kept in the mind.
In the present era you have to find a lots of strength to free yourself from the grip of collectivism. It is like in the movie “Matrix” – you are born into the system. You are part of it even before you realised that such a thing exist.
Only strong people who can think independently, act on his own judgment can create a strong group. This group which recognise every single member as individual can have common purpose. One of this groups is family.
Members of family look after each other. They cherish form of tribalism. They have values which help them survive the worst nightmare. Even if some of them are not up for the task the rest helps them to become strong again. It is always painful but necessary. There is no easy way out. You have to pay the price for overcoming your weaknesses but that makes you only stronger.
Anyone who undermine this doesn’t care about individual. The purpose of this people is to destroy the basis of your humanity and make you faceless.
Individualism should be spread widely. The effect should be like the Thor’s hammer hits the ground. Earthquake.
Individualism should runs rampant.
dirty fingers and sunglasses
“In that regard, the priest added that the devil also seeks to attack the family through ideologies and lifestyles, as well as individualistic thinking and the spread of divorce.”
“They think 'if I don't like my husband anymore, I would be better off divorcing' but they forget about the consequences to the children and society,” he said. “This mentality that works against the family pleases the devil – he knows that a man who is alone without any points of reference is manipulable and unstable.”
The above two quotations are from this article. It is hard for me to agree with some of the phrases I have noticed. This is happening again – something is in my eyes. Maybe I should put sunglasses on but then my view is not going to be real. I choose option: “sunglasses off”.
These are the points of reference.
Individual is using process called thinking in every aspect of life. If I want to make a cup of tea I’m considering which flavour should I choose: mint or lemon. Writing these very words I’m using rational individual thinking. Designer of the chair I’m seating on used process of individual thinking. Musician who composed beautiful piano song is individual and thinking human being.
Exorcist performing exorcism has to asses each possessed person. This process is achieved by individual thinking. I’m sure there are general guidelines as a help but at the end of the day he has to make up his own mind about the problem he is facing. He can’t wait for a bliss from heaven. It is here and right now. It is called reality.
You cannot be afraid to use this very process of thinking which really is a virtue. It is a choice between life and death. If you decide not to think you become zombie. Multiply this by tens of thousands and you have black mass.
This priest giving that very statement used individual thinking. What the statement says ? That devil seeks to attack family through individualistic thinking. He is using this very process to tell others not to use it. If that’s not dirty devil’s fingers in the cake I don’t know what it is. It is pure and simple manipulation. So who is under influence of devil and who needs exorcism ?
If your relationship or marriage doesn’t work you go separate ways. There is of course issue of children (if they are present) and break down of family. Later on you might find someone with whom you could build better family. Following logic that getting divorce pleases the devil who do you please by being in toxic relationship or marriage ?
Yes, man without any point of reference is manipulable and unstable.
Now, it is time to put sunglasses back and relax.
