The Systematic Elimination of Rational Thought in Modern Society

And salt waters shall be found in the sweet, and all friends shall destroy one another; then shall common-sense hide itself, and understanding withdraw itself into his secret chamber, And shall be sought of many, and yet not be found: then shall unrighteousness and incontinency be multiplied upon Earth.2 Esdras 5:9-10

The greatest threat to mankind isn’t a manufactured global pandemic, nor famine, nor even the third world war; it is the deliberate and systematic elimination of rational thought. Without rational thought, we are reduced to nothing more than human-animals, with the exception we now possess the means through science and technology to ensure our destruction.

Most have no idea that they suffer from this affliction, much less to what degree, nor do they realize how widespread it is. In fact, most are absolutely convinced that they are logical individuals quite capable of rational thought, based upon their knowledge of, acceptance of, and adherence to what are considered to be ‘societal norms’. The very real possibility that the entire population could be headed in the wrong direction, led by people who don’t know what they’re doing, seems to have never been considered.

Sadly, to even suggest that the very foundational beliefs, institutions and traditions which people hold dear are fundamentally flawed, and actually threaten our continued existence, is usually considered by most to be a “conspiracy theory” and thus assumed to be an insult to their intelligence. And with that emotional reaction, the door closes to the critically-important self-correction process that could stop this malignant, global epidemic in its tracks, thereby healing this sick society and everyone in it.

Emotion, all of which is ego-driven and thus fear-based, is the enemy of reason and what should be common-sense.

Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is the product of our imagination (Gen. 6:5), causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Now do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.” – from the film ‘After Earth’

Anyone who has read to this point and doesn’t recognize that they too are afflicted with this insanity, is proving they are either unwilling or incapable of learning what rational thought is, and thus is contributing to the madness, aka our mutually assured destruction. Need evidence?
