Cretin: (n) a stupid, obtuse, or mentally defective person.
We attempt to balance the entire philosophy of humankind on the head of a pin. Maybe that’s why we have so many pinheads.
But the truth of the matter is, knowing the exact amount of mercy to extend to the human race and the correct punishing judgment is virtually impossible to achieve.
There is no balance.
There are times when people appear to be well worth the effort, and on other occasions, jungle desires overtake each and every one of us, and we all look like high-minded monkeys.
The word “cretin” is different.
The term connotes that there is an awareness—even a memory—of what is appropriate and beneficial, but it is ignored in favor of the devious and the devilish.
There are people who do not want to win unless they can cheat.
They do not want to gain positions of power, but rather, powerfully position themselves to degrade others.
These individuals are not our adversaries nor are they our friends.
They are our enemies.
And to become an enemy of Earth and those who dwell on Earth, all that is necessary is to ignore everything you know to be true, in favor of rewriting the rules with your own magic marker.
