“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Beautiful Texan Souls

To commemorate the passing of the Texas Board of Education's new dogma, inflicted on any US schoolkid with a textbook, read Thomas Merton, “The Moral Theology of the Devil."

It convincingly argues that fundamentalism is a form of Satanism.

The Moral Theology of the Devil

Ideas come bundled with attitudes. The beautiful soul (described by Hegel) is the attitude bundled with the idea "The world is choked with evil."

(Seeing evil as an irreducible substance) IS (evil).
