How we have progressed from the Dark Ages!
Modern man. What a wonderful intelligent creature. In the Dark Ages people would blame any ills on superstitious, ridiculous ideas and what we now see as absolute nonsense . Some examples would be witchcraft, bad air, and the greatest fall back must have been, “The Devil made me do it!” They did not take much responsibility for their own actions, did they? Living in filth, God/Devil was to blame for plague. Thank goodness we have advanced in our thoughts and are so much more informed and educated now.
Bullshit! We have just replaced the names of things that we are told cause most of our mis-fortunes. Modern man has a whole new set of Gods and these Gods have come with a complete set of Devils. The God that I find fascinating is The Psychologist. One does not have to set burnt offerings to these Gods, they would not be pleased with the ashes of the money they demand as homage. But they will for a price give you a whole set of Devils to blame, for just about anything you wish not to take responsibility for. Not only that! They will then point their Godly finger at those close to you and blame them for your trouble. Hell, it is a win, win situation. Once you are under their spell but faltering in getting your life in order, no problem. They will refer you to their other deity The Psychiatrist. Now this is a smart God, he takes no chances and gives you some mind-altering substances to make sure you feel, sort of ok. They both will recommend various “bibles” you should read and further entrap your now chemically altered mind.
So now you are free to blame your “condition” on ANY of your defects, from straight forward sloth to sluttery! My personal favorite Devil at the moment must be this Bi-polar idol. It can cover a multitude of sins and I hear people using it everyday. In trouble? Here is a link to find out which Devil will suite you best….. Alphabetical Index of Disorders. All you need to do now is read up a little about your chosen Devil, get your “sacrifice”, money, together and get your ass onto one of the God’s couch. As he or she is getting paid, the easier you make it for the God to diagnose, the more helpful they will be, just remember all God’s like for their egos to be stroked, so don’t be too clever as you guide them to your Devil. Bang, bang. You are no longer responsible! Gotto love it.
Of course this is just One Man’s Opinion and that man could most likely be diagnosed with a host of mental disorders, from PTSD to… Bi-polar to… whatyoumacallit?
Perhaps that is why I spell so bad and my grammar sucks……?
