The Religion of Big Brother.
That's a bit misleading, eh? Actually, Big brother is gonna BE the religion in our glorious future. Glorious leaders, a glorious future and youtube three minutes hates, just for fun.
I for one welcome these new and improved enhancements. Just like I welcome all the other (compulsory) additives we get these days.
Don't you? ADD, feminist, cancerous, crazy or not, right?
Getting super-bugs in your lunch bother you?
Hey, this IS about big brother. Super-bugs are right up his alley.
Seriously, I don't think BB will be able to pass up the opportunity to concentrate power like this. Weber said religion rationalized society, Campus says it falls into religion in natural evolution cycle, so I figure BB will jump all over the chance to make himself god, king AND royalty-free.
If he can. He'll probably mix it with flying saucer worship, just to confuse the more backward types.
My, won't THAT be an interesting week.
Religion changes, thou. Trust me.
Faith, religion, politics. Hoo-boy, does it EVER change.
Tribal, feudal and technocratic stages of religion? Here's a guess or two at the new stuff coming down the pipe atcha.
This is your tribe? Here's your union card, just make the right sacrifices and you're in. The customs of our tribe are the laws of god, remember.
Everybody else's dude from the dunes is wrong. Past, present and future.
Middle age spread? The clans are a feudal'ing.
'No god but me.' time. We're getting a little concentrated here, so it's time to 'fess up. Confession is now a sacrament, dummy. Thanks for the info, here's your get-out-of-jail-free indulgence.
Any 'Accept, ask, work' development problems you might have are shuffled off into 'the peasants are revoltin' AND getting uppity agin' column. Reading and writing, too. The dark ages of admin, manage and development.
Graduate first, kiddo. THEN we might accept you into the fold.
Or lynch you. Most people are stupid to the point of being dangerous with pencils, let alone any real power.
But only freedom can develop the tools you need to take over the world.
Indulgence, work and development habits? Can't say we see much of the last two, but we can work with this.
Hey boys and girls, NOW it's time for BB's new and improved ZERO card.
Congrats! You're top of the heap. Developed to the point where the 'Every action has an opposite and equal reaction' law doesn't apply to you anymore.
Think the aristocrats had it good with tax-free churches, droit de signor rights and promotion based on birth?
Think of this 'zero card' one as diplomatic immunity WITH benefits. You can do no wrong anymore.
Nulled. Zeroed. Cleared. And untouchable.
And you want your kid to get one too, eh?
Hum... Did he graduate from our universal brain-washing? Yes?
Well... seeing's how it's you asking for this….
