This morning when I went on facebook, this notice came up from the posting above from 2014. I have now joined the ranks of those who have a post taken down for not following the faceless facebook corporate “community standards” of a post that’s from 6 years ago! I can easily guess the reason the post was taken down: it’s a quote from the notorious Nazi Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda and closest friend/ally of Adolph Hitler. I am heartened that the facebook collective do not like Nazis, but the inhumanity is shown in the fact that their computers can not detect nuance. Further, not talking about the evils of history will only promote their retrieval in our history.

The quote is:

“I would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in face a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.”

I hope you can understand the reason I posted it. Not to promote Nazism but show from this fascist and murderer that words are manipulated daily now by all sorts of fascists, including leftist/liberal fascists and their propagandists. Words are bent into daily and subtle lies as Orwellian doublespeak to mold the reality to a totalitarian view point, e.g., the proliferation of pronouns to accept chemical and physical laceration of people’s bodies in transgenderism, including children, that is the tyranny of deified sexuality. Or the more blatant propaganda: keep on throwing mud and it will stick.

The only aspect of my original post that the facebook coders’ and planners’ algorithms probably read was Nazi. This is inhumane as the programs cannot discern the content. I would like to think these programs can so read the content and know that this was against the very faceless communities of totalitarian thought represented by facebook, twitter and their ilk, and this is the actual reason my post was taken down.

Mere words…that’s exactly what propagandists like Goebbels want us to think. Yet these “mere words”, to the person who is offended, turn out not to be so mere! So the use of “mere words” is a lie in and of itself, but an important lie and is directed to the Word of God. Yet, this degrading of the Word as “mere words” has been done now by illiberal liberals in regards to Scripture with increasing voraciousness for over a century now.

I think it was Judge Scalia’s comment that the response to bad speech is not regulating speech, but more free speech, but totalitarians don’t like that, right or left. We have been a politically and religiously vigorous nation because of first amendment rights. This has allowed the free course of freed and freeing speech: God’s Word of Law and Promise and the Bible. And totalitarians don’t want that either because they sense the Lord does free us from our idolatry of political leaders, right or left. We are in dark times, yes, but more specifically: devilish times.

What to do? One small thing: stop using the sewers of the social platforms. I only post now on facebook and twitter the articles from this blog. A few years back we were rightly concerned about NSA collecting data on us American citizens, but facebook etc. and ad nauseum do this on a minute by minute basis. Big Brother is watching and he/she/cis has data on you. Don’t submit. They rejoice in angry divisiveness by our never ending postings for one reason: so they collect the data for advertising and sell us products.

Face it on facebook: There is no “community” on facebook. There is only the community you are in right now. The only true spirituality is local. It is your town or city, your family and friends and the one we all share as Christians across the globe: Christ’s Holy Church, His Body, the communion of saints.

Hebrews 12 

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
