Children of the Beast
So when today’s humans lose parents and family as a resource to feeling belongingness and having identity, they begin to attach themselves to “The Beast” rather than to their Heavenly Father.
Ask any pastor, teacher, psychotherapist, supervisor, boss or elected official and they will be happy to confirm that the people they deal with are all trying to work out their childhood agendason any available authority figure.
Some want a ‘sugar daddy’ and a ‘sugar family’ to take care of them, so they cede their personal power and freedom to this Democratic Parent and Party, which promises to provide life’s necessities and define reality for them. The details of politics and policy positions pale into insignificance, when compared to the need to escape from personal freedom and responsibility.
Some want a ‘strong daddy’ who will protect them from danger and who expects them to be strong as well. So they vote for a Republican Parent and Party. They need to belong to a strong family with a strong leader, so they will feel safe. And once again, the details don’t really matter that much.
No matter for whom we are voting, we are choosing our kind of family, and our kind of parent. Most folks choose the candidate for the qualities that will fill their psychological needs. The issues aren’t nearly as important as the personal evaluation of the person’s character. If they like the person and trust that candidate to be “their kind of parent,” they will make that selection. Most people are not aware of the dangers of “The Beast,” and our collective duty to subdue “The Beast,” so they elect a leader who meets their personal needs.
Conclusion: Some voters still embrace their personal freedom, and the responsibility that comes along with it. They study the issues, and they vote on the issues. They know the nature of “The Beast” and they live up to their duty to tame “The Beast.” But sadly, they are a distinct minority. Don’t expect people to vote on issues. They seldom do. My guess is that more people will vote on how the candidate looks than on what the candidate believes. They vote for whoever meets their personal, psychological needs. And “The Beast” will continue to rule until the citizens are all armed with spiritual cattle prods.
