|PEOPLE THAT DON'T KNOW ME THINK OF ME AS COLD & CYNICAL BUT THE PRIVILEGED FEW I HAVE LET IN MY REALM KNOW MY TRUE NATURE OF BEING FUN LOVING & OPEN MINDED. I BELIEVE THAT MY MIND MANIPULATES MY WEB OF REALITY & THAT MY ACTIONS OF TODAY CAST A REACTION & REFLECTION INTO THE FUTURE OF THE INTANGIBLE TOMORROW. IM THE RULER OF MY OWN DESTINY & AM NOT CONSTRAINED BY YOUR MORAL BARRIERS.
The state was treated as "a quasi-animate personality from whom everything is expected" but that personality was "only camouflage for those individuals who know how to manipulate it", and referred to the state as a form of slavery. The state "swallowed up [people's] religious forces",and therefore the state has "taken the place of God" making it comparable to a religion in which "state slavery is a form of worship". "Stage acts of [the] state" are comparable to religious displays: "Brass bands, flags, banners, parades and monster demonstrations are no different in principle from ecclesiastical processions, cannonades and fire to scare off demons". This replacement of God with the state in a mass society led to the dislocation of the religious drive and resulted in the same fanaticism of the church-states of the Dark Ages wherein the more the state is 'worshipped', the more freedom and morality are suppressed; this ultimately leaves the individual psychically undeveloped with extreme feelings of marginalization.~ Carl G. Jung

A little of me...
I have a set of strongly-held beliefs, values, and attitudes that I live by and by that definition I am of religion. Now that being said I?m not by any means a fundamentalist. I do not have a religion based around the Divine but of my archetype from the realizations of my personal and collective unconsciousness. I consider myself eclectic, an adapt religiousness, or religiophilosophical if you will.
