Lucifer was the most beautiful of angels, the bearer of light; he was the Prince of Angels. His weakness was pride. When God made man in His own image, thus raising a creature higher than the angels, Lucifer was inflamed with raging jealousy, and rebelled against God. He was able to do that because he had free will, just like us.
Now, angels are supposed to be a sort of pure spirit-being, comprised of almost perfect, pure intellect, so they should be intellectually superior to us, by orders of magnitude. But then, rebelling against his own Creator could not have been a very smart thing for Lucifer to do, could it?
It was stupid.
That legendary event may have marked the birth of stupidity.
In the Evil page we defined Evil as Opposition to Truth. Falsehood, in other words. With God being the Truth, and the center and source of all lesser truths, any opposition to truth is, at its root, evil, and stupid. You cannot oppose objective reality out of anything other than evil, which is to say, stupidity. We should think of evil and stupidity as being one and the same thing. In Reason Versus Materialism we debunked the stupid notion that there is no God and that all there is or ever was, is matter.
A Twin Lie of the "Pure Materialism" lie is the "No such thing as evil" lie, spoken of in the Evil page. Let me quote from it:
The notion that evil does not exist is just plain stupid. Suicidally stupid. Opposition to reality is and can be nothing less than stupid.
The legal citizen Equality established in the American Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States is, precisely, equal standing before the law. It is is this Equality, along with citizen rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness that allow American citizens to prosper, on their own, through the work of their own hands and the sweat of their own brows, earning and accumulating privately owned [Income=Wealth=Property], and then bartering with it.
That's all Capitalism is. It is the Free Market; it is Natural Law.
The free citizen is the sole source of the creation of new wealth.
In direct opposition to that legal citizen equality before the law stands Marxist Equality, which is, precisely, state-forced equality of [Income=Wealth=Property], which demands collectivization and redistribution of everything. Including people, eventually, if "Equality In Everything" is to be fully achieved everywhere.
America was and remains the worlds first and only classless society, by Declaration and Constitution. Marxist "Equality" would turn that upside down and create at least two classes of citizens - those who do the collectivization and redistribution, and those affected by it.
They would comprise the new Nobility and the new Serfs.
Those who promote this are too stupid, evil or both to even recognize the utter impossibility of ever achieving such total equality of worldly stuff.
Estimates as high as 1.5 million children starving annually are used by Marxists pointing fingers at America, "while you consume and waste so much", insinuating a causal affect. What we produce, export, import, consume, give away and waste here has nothing whatsoever to do with anyone starving anywhere else. The linkage is, again, both evil and stupid. To even think that someone starved somewhere else in the world because I ate a pork chop and drove an air conditioned SUV is so incredibly stupid it makes my feet hurt.
If the starving people were free, as we are, they would be producing [Income=Wealth=Property], as we are. But they are not free. They are restricted, by their form of government and by social conditioning, to starve, rather than to prosper by their own industriousness.
People who are free survive; industrious people who are free prosper.
Go to the Population Problem page and read the comparative stories of overpopulated Bangladesh, and the even more overpopulated Hong Kong, and how Hong Kong prospered, even having greater population density, less land mass and less natural resources than Bangladesh.
It was freedom that brought prosperity to Hong Kong. Nothing more.
Freedom could do the same thing everywhere.
Neither the Marxocrat Party nor the Republicrat Party even obey, let alone support and enforce the American Constitution. The Political Parties merely load up the three Constitutional branches of government with Party ideologues according to Party agendas, so that sitting officials of government will sponsor, promote and defend Party causes, exclusively, even at the expense of adherence to and governing by the Constitution.
The Political Parties are in a continuous contest, not only with each other, but with other monied entities and voting-block entities, in which they alternate between controlling these entities and being controlled by them.
Oligarchs, Big business, big banking, big investing, big news media (which is already Marxist at its core), academia, big labor, high society, big celebrity, foreign entities, big education, big credit, big health care, big insurance, big medicine, big environmentalism, big scientism, big UN, big money contributors, big civil-litigation, and on, and on.
Add to these the predominantly Marxist groups "invented" for exploitation: the Anti-Capitalism groups, the Anti-English Language groups, the Anti-American groups, the Anti-Christian groups, the Anti-White Race groups, the Anti-Male groups, the Anti-Heterosexual groups, the Anti-Authority groups, the Anti-Institution groups, the Pro-Invented-Gender groups, the Government Welfare and Benefit Dependent groups, the Government Employment Dependent groups, the Pro-Contraceptive / Abortion / Eugenics / Euthanasia / Cloning / Free Sex / Pornography groups, the Anti-Sovereign Borders groups, and on, and on.
Everything other than the Constitution, and other than We The People.
The lure that attracts these entities to the Parties, and that attracts the Parties to the entities, is access to and control of the US Treasury. Money is the link. Businesses and sociopolitical movements seek access to US Treasure, ability to harm competitor businesses or sociopolitical movements through regulation, tax laws, etc., and regulatory / tax advantage to themselves. Political Parties seek pure political support for gaining and maintaining political power, political funds, growing themselves, and a share of politically skimmed US Treasure. It's a match made in hell.
On both sides of the match, the partners exist for themselves.
We have hammered the Political Party system among the American Peoplehood Pages, the Anti-Americanism Pages and the Absolute Stupidassism Pages. It may be readily seen that the Political Parties are ruling America, outside of the Constitution. They have made themselves into a Ruling Class. Their constantly evolving Party agendas have everything to do with maintaining and feeding Pure Political Party power, sustenance and growth, and nothing whatsoever to do with the Constitution, other than public lip-service and false political speeches.
We have shown, in Pigeonholes, Ideologies, Smiling Degenerates and elsewhere herein that today's Marxocrat Party, having evolved from the anti-American "Confederate States" Democrat Party, is, unequivocally,
And, in those same pages and elsewhere herein, we have shown that today's Republicrat Party, having evolved from the pro-abolition, anti-secession Republican Party, is, unequivocally, a "Bipartisan Cooperator" with the Marxocrat Party, with the overriding goal of maintaining the shared, two-Party status of being America's Ruling Class. Under both Parties, we may expect government to grow, citizen liberty to shrink and the Constitution to be ignored. They have become evil, and stupid, entities.
If we do not destroy our Political Parties, they will destroy America.
Constitutional America can only be governed either by the Constitution, or by the Parties. Not both. Political Parties and the Constitution are so incompatible as to be antithetical. George Washington said as much, and he was right.
Our whole government, top down, has amply demonstrated its own monumental stupidity by, just as one instance, allowing the outlawing of the Edison Light Bulb, having been sucked in to the truly stupid Global Warming hoax, and the Limited Fossil Fuel hoax, and the Gigantic Pollution hoax. But then, if these and other massive hoaxes actually originated in government in the first place, then, we must ask the question, is our government evil, or stupid?
Evil and stupidity go together. Both are identified as opposition to Truth. One is intentionally lying, and the other is - well, stupid. I wish I could think of a kind or diplomatic way to say these things, but evil is evil, and stupid is stupid.
Pope Francis is right on board with all of these frauds and hoaxes and the whole Marxist sociopolitical agenda, which is, as we have said, one big gigantic lie.
Rather than teaching the hungry man to fish, or even allowing him to fish, the Marxist would have us give the man a fish. His daily fish. Make him dependent upon the fish. Make him expect the fish, and expect to not have to work for it. Make him angrily jealous of those who have more fish.
The problem with that is that the Ruling Class, i.e., the Government, does not and cannot produce the daily fish for the hungry man. The Ruling Class can only take it from someone else who caught it. Once the fisherman who caught it can no longer prosper by the fish he catches, he will soon stop catching fish. Sooner or later, the system collapses and everyone starves.
Marxist Redistributionism feeds the twin mortal sins of stealing and coveting. Pope Francis promotes Marxist Redistributionism. What does that say about Pope Francis?
Who am I to judge?

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
