Did you learn this from a Holy Father, one of the saints, or maybe Joseph Goebbels?
Originally from Herr Goebbels, of course; though you can, to an extent, find it in Cicero as well. I have read many diverse sources in the arts of rhetoric and propaganda.
Propaganda and ridicule put Jews, Gypsies and homosexuals in the gas chamber, Christians in the lions den and African Americans in slavery. GIC, I would think you could have come up with a technique a little more subtle and original! Of course, it is a proven technique.
So, at least you understand that it works and can see where I'm coming from...and the only reason that it's obvious is because I admited as much (this honesty is my great fault
), had I not done so you would never have expected that my source was Joseph Goebbels himself...I could have easily been dismissed as just another anti-religious arrogant intellectual who hasn't thought his arguments through.
Personally, I like Christ's example better. You endure ridicule and propaganda, then you change the world.
Good luck with that one. I'm thinking that divinity may be a prerequisite to that approach.
I'm intrigued. Looking back through your posts, it seems your "GOD" is logic. Is that accurate at all?
Kinda, I have made no secret of my neo-platonic leanings, the One is the source and essence of all things which naturally begets the Logos, which is in large part the Reason and Logic behind these things which eminate forth from the One.
