Stupid Believers

This was fun to write. 

It’s interesting how propaganda works. How many of you are religious? Believers of a book written 2000 years ago, long before modern science began to uncover worldly truths? 

I’m on your side here. Let’s make fun of the rest of the world. 

Religious propaganda has influenced billions of people. It influenced the founding fathers of the United States and it influenced the Bible Belt – the southern states that are stereotyped as not being as intelligent as us on the coasts. 

It’s the atheists, the agnostics, the non-believers, that are better than this cheap propaganda. 

Sorry, “better than”. 

You see, atheists, and the classes they populate, fall prey to another kind of propaganda. Advertising. 

These dumb hicks from ‘bama and east California, they don’t fall prey to your ads. They see an ad for an iPhone 13 and say, “Y’all don’t need that, y’already got a phone. That just ain’t no good.” 

The superior in intellect, those that resemble the founding fathers in courage and wisdom, but choose to write blogs to carry out their revolution, they say something similar, “You don’t need a new iPhone. The utility of adding three cameras to the back is not worth the opportunity cost of working weeks or more likely months at a job that doesn’t care for you. Plus the dopamine rush of having a shiny new object to show off to the neighbors won’t do me, or the neighbor any good.” 

It’s you heathen middle-brows, the average person, the basic bitch and hazy bro that gives into advertising. You, smart as you are for having disproved a man that peacefully recommended not wanting things and said by practicing virtue you can be better than your animal instincts. You told him he didn’t exist. 

In doing so, you reinforced your own ideas and your own shitty behavior. You are relegating yourselves to animals, prone to emotional whim and carnal desire. You let your lusts and fears drive your behavior, which makes you open to manipulation by marketing departments, which you are eager to see what they produce for you next so that you can incrementally raise your status over your neighbor. 

There’s a better way. I figured it out, and so did those Trump loving, gun toting rednecks down South. 

They are more capable of experiencing happiness than you.
