"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, as one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth."

- Paul writing to Timothy, second letter, second chapter

 

 "To be a scientist is to be naïve. We are so focused on our search for truth, we fail to consider how few actually want us to find it. But it is always there, whether we see it or not, whether we choose to or not. The truth doesn't care about our needs or wants... It will lie in wait for all time... Where once I would fear the cost of truth, now I only ask: What is the cost of lies?"

- Nuclear Physicist Valery Legasov at the conclusion of HBO's Chernobyl

I feel compelled to write a preface to this season's home page piece. That writing is here, you may get right to it. It is perfectly fine, mind you. Please read it, I'd love for you to find Him in it. That's what it is all about anyway.

Why isn't it right here on the site's home page as all my other ones have been?

I've deeply considered this piece may engender a bit of a misunderstanding about what I posit regarding the Inclusivity Gauntlet and the plausibility structure that girds it. That structure is one that must be delicately designed, fastidiously constructed, and proficiently injected into the public domain with the most illustrious vengeance, a strength seven times that of anyone who'd challenge it its bountifully expressed and fully authorized purpose to keep a reprobate populace in check. (The splendid image, by the way, is from The Babylon Bee, thanks.)

It is built around the supreme postmodern principle: there is no such thing as a metanarrative, a dogmatic precept sustained by the metanarrative carefully crafted to exempt the prince from this logical inconsistency. No worries. More and more economically and biblically illiterate youth are encouraged to make waves that it works just fine. And it does. Prosecute the unwilling with the nicest, kindest looking autocracy.

Thing is, the volumes of righteous railing against the freshest version of the quite entrenched hegemony, no matter how principled and sound it is, is exactly what Cain's present-day minions expect from the perpetually fearful. There is a reason it has always been as loud and robust as it has. The very best detractors are played like fiddles, always. This is what I think some may see in my home page piece just another pointless rant against The System.

Perish the thought. The only reason I share the reality of what it means to be "woke" is that some, perhaps some may see it for what it truly is and turn to Christ. I am remonstrating against it not at all. I've found that even in sharing too much of the System's legitimate machinations I too risk drawing the susceptibly ill-versed further into the maelstrom.

So please, as you read on, balance what you read here with a generous dose of The Word and a mighty grip on His robe. Only bathed in the grace and truth that comes from Grace and Truth should you look at how nightmarishly horrific socialism, sodomism, and racialism are, and tenderly understand that these beasts are deliberately and irrevocably in place because so many millions justifiably ask them to be there. Should you raucously poke and prod them, it will only result in some rather imaginative use of that seven-fold force against you.

In a further plot twist, Caesar will definitely not take you down as much as he appears to ferociously sneer at you no, you'll be kept alive turning on a spit so his masters may continue to gorge on you, your pitiful gripes the choicest morsels for those with the power to baste you interminably. Think they are the ones The New York Times says they are?

Hmm, more for you to learn.

But then, I sincerely hope I do humbly provide a public service for the Kingdom with my home page piece this season.

And I do pray I do, I pray for you, my reader, especially if you are young and intelligent and zealously eager to take on the world I do, I actually do...

Again, the link to this summer's home page piece...

The Latest in the Webzine (June 2019): I have decided that it is time to do fewer home page pieces over the course of a year because they simply take too much of my time. I'm planning one every three months now, next up then will be in September, for Fall 2019. Thank you for your faithful readership. In addition to my last home page about Epicureanism, I'd added a page with responses to what I see is the reigning philosophy of the age. My (so-far) signature video is up and has a page of its own, here is the reference page, and the link to YouTube is here. I invite you to let me know what you think, here is my email address. I blog sometimes at Wonderful Matters. Several of us ROEders have a "Tupper Saussy" group on Facebook, you're more than welcome to ask to join. Mention this webzine. I'd love to expand the breadth of this endeavor, so if you know of someone who is well-versed in computer systems, web design, or web marketing, please let me know. Thanks.
