If a complete stranger approached you on the street holding a steaming shite pie in his hand and asked you to eat it, hopefully you’d tell him in no uncertain terms what he could do with his shite pie. And yet…
“Officials at the University of Tennessee, for instance, recently introduced an Orwellian policy that would prohibit students from using gender specific pronouns and be more inclusive by using gender “neutral” pronouns such as ze, hir, zir, xe, xem and xyr, rather than he, she, him or her.” ~ John Whitehead, “Sheep Led to Slaughter…”
That there’s a piping hot Tennessee Shite Pie that only an unconscious person would even think about eating…which begs the million dollar questions! How in the world do unconscious people eat? And more importantly, how is it possible for them to think about what they’re eating while they’re unconscious? And their parents paid a fortune for it! Talk about “unconscious”! 😦
The entire present-day American socio-economical-political system has become one massive American Shite Pie presented to us by strangers on every street and on every channel in every city and every town across the rapidly decaying American landscape every single day! And thanks to the most prolific Shite Pie Chef of all time, President Obama, the appetite for Shite Pie has progressed from the American Streets to the World Stage! Here’s a test to prove my theory…
What do you call it when an American President refuses to condemn domestic terrorists who chant “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon” as police officers are being executed daily? Answer- Presidential Shite Pie!
What do you call it when a Catholic Pope advocates “Forgiving Abortion” while Planned Parenthood is stuffing baby heads in boxes and selling them for profit? Answer- Papal Shite Pie!
Congratulations if you got both answers right! You win a 3 year supply of breath mints!!
The Art of Rebellion
According to Mr. Whitehead, the next stop after we’ve eaten enough shite is a place called tyranny. I highly recommend the movie Schindler’s List in order to acquaint yourself with what that will look like. I have to say that makes sense really, for once you’ve gotten people to eat shite, they’ve proven they’re sheep ready for the pen and worse. He goes on to say that “any hope for the future, will rest with those ill-mannered, bad-tempered, uncivil, discourteous few who are disenchanted enough with the status quo to tell the government to go to hell using every nonviolent means available.”
The problem, as I see it, is that most of us were raised to be well-mannered, even-tempered, civil, and courteous. We’ve literally been bred to be non-rebellious. On the other hand, the thought of real tyranny up close and personal makes Shite Pie seem like strawberry shortcake. What’s a poor prole to do? Here’s the thing. Whitehead’s 100% correct…we need to get mad! We mild-mannered proles need to get our Mad Max on! But here’s the key…we need to be good-natured about it! I highly recommend the movies A Day at the Races or Horse Feathers to acquaint yourself with what that will feel like. Show me a more effective good-natured rebel than Groucho Marx, and I’ll show you the rebel-artist’s master…And we share a common foil; the Establishment! 🙂
The #1 most important thing in mastering the art of rebellion is knowing that you have to. That there is absolutely no other choice! Next, I would say, is the importance of assessing, harnessing and applying your own God-given talents to a cause greater than your own. Making freedom will be a little different (and more difficult) than making money. Thirdly, you need to be un-dependent in order to become independent. Why do most people sit down when they should stand up and remain silent when they should speak out? They don’t want to lose their friends. The third principle in mastering the art of rebellion is eliminating your dependence on people, places and things…they are only people, places and things. Freedom is everything! Without it, there are no people worth knowing, places to see, or things to have! Period! Practice being alone.
Lastly, while being independent of the social need to surround yourself with friends, it is important to identify and recruit a network of new friends, like-minded, kindred spirit, and people you can trust. People as committed as you to the cause, as it were. I would say that incorporating these four foundational principles into your life, while infusing each one with the glow of your own good nature, is the recipe for eventual success because you are actually creating something that is desperately needed, at a time and place it is more needed than ever before. The right people will be drawn to you…always remember that! Keep God close, and your enemies? Let them eat their own Shite Pie! 😉
