There are things I repeat that are not boring, and things I hear that are a daily pleasure. The murmers of affection from my beloved. Puppies. Sunrise. Sunset. I think I have taken a few hundred pictures of some scenes, for I look again at the light on the water and it is, again, beautiful. Suck things never bore, for quality is not jarring.
But falsehood is shallow, and it enervates.
Perhaps it all started with that Coca Cola ad almost fifty years ago that wanted to teach the world to sing, with a long shot of a multi-cultural group of young people, all mingling peacefully, loving one another, all grokking one another. No borders for these folk.
These lectures are so important to the woke folk on Madison Avenue that the corporations—and the ad agencies that do their bidding—spend untold millions of dollars in which the products themselves never make an appearance. There was nary a phone in the T-Mobile ad, and no macaroni showed up in the Kraft ad.

What the corporations are saying is not that they are machines designed to maximise profit, for they work for their shareholders, which is the truth, if you consider the fiduciary duty of any company. If it does not make a profit, it dies, and all the jobs and posturing with it. The posturing is designed to make us like the company, and reinforce the narrative of lies that we are being fed.
We’re not simply being “lectured to.” We’re being fully and relentlessly PROPAGANDIZED. And it’ll continue. Because it works. It works spectacularly.
I’ve recently fled the hell of “diversity” in SoCal. I fled to the +90% white panhandle of Idaho. Yet even here, the propaganda never stops. The local PBS, for example, constantly spews it, along with various local newspapers.
SJWs never stop. They have all the energy of true religious believers, but without any goodness and without God. They’re thus true children of their father, the devil, who never sleeps while propagating his filth. Leftism is indeed a substitute for religion, and as a mere substitute, it’s diabolically distorted and attracts the diabolically disoriented.
Even in the panhandle of Idaho, many suicidally xenophilic white ethnomasochists are to be found. They haven’t yet been “enriched” by “diversity” and thus don’t know its true horrors. Such are the people who must be red-pilled, before it’s too late. Because they’re being constantly propagandized and thus primed for the horrific reign of Paco, Jamal, and Abdul — with the perfidious likes of (((Shapiro))) of course pulling the strings.

Repeating a lie is propaganda. And that does not work, for all know it is a lie and parrot it so that they are seen to be virtuous. But if virtue will not save you, for it inflates pride, neither will virtue signalling.
9He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: 10“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.’ 13But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ 14I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted.”
5:20bWe entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
6:1As we work together with him, we urge you also not to accept the grace of God in vain. 2For he says,
“At an acceptable time I have listened to you,
and on a day of salvation I have helped you.”
See, now is the acceptable time; see, now is the day of salvation! 3We are putting no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, 4but as servants of God we have commended ourselves in every way: through great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, 5beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; 6by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, holiness of spirit, genuine love, 7truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; 8in honor and dishonor, in ill repute and good repute. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; 9as unknown, and yet are well known; as dying, and see — we are alive; as punished, and yet not killed; 10as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing everything.
Today is the beginning of Lent, more than it is a day of romance. We are supposed to be attending church, and being marked with Ashes, to remember that life is short. The world wants us instead to celebrate love, which they define as not building a family and making a life, but as degenerate perversions.
So we are hardened and forget the gospel.
So that we believe the propaganda and repeat the lies.
But they go stale.
So by plea today, is to become reconciled with God, and to walk with him, through the completed work of Christ.
