Re: Articles you might find interesting.
Do you think that religion ALWAYS is a tool "the elite" uses to control the masses?
Are "the elite" agenda ALWAYS to manipulate the masses for the benefit of "the elite"?
Are "the elite" ALWAYS minority conspirators against the majority masses?
The reason I ask is because I'm not of that opinion.
Sure, in this day and age it's gone so far that those who SHOULD be elites (because of a spiritual superiority) have been subverted by what Martin Short (no, not the actor) called "The Mafia of the Mediocre".<a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0586070656/qid=1108717111/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_10_1/202-4811183-9327868"> Inside The Brotherhood</a>
But it hasn't always been that way.
I've written and posted excerpts from other websites quite a bit on this matter elsewhere on this forum, mainly on the threads <a href="http://www.clubconspiracy.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=590&forum=3&PHPSESSID=00d5d 1bd0a636b554a358bb0ef13c47e"> INTEGRAL TRADITION</a> and <a href="http://www.clubconspiracy.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=677&forum=3&PHPSESSID=00d5d 1bd0a636b554a358bb0ef13c47e"> SOLIPSISM - KALI YUGA</a> in the Share The Knowledge forum. It's mainly about Perennial Wisdom and the Ancient World of Primordial Tradition.
Judging religion and spirituality by todays' standards would be a big mistake since everything's upsidedown in today's world...
