There is no such thing as a sin of omission. Holding something back is not a lie. Keeping stuff to yourself is not perjury – it’s just being prudent. An untruth is a calculated falsification – while merely leaving stuff out does not counterfeit anything. A lie is saying something deliberately fake, but a gentleman who keeps his mouth closed about certain things says no falsehood whatsoever. An unanswered question could mean many things, but it is never dishonest.
A vigilant individual is always cagey with specifics. Like a police investigator failing to release a few critical details about a crime, a discrete man doesn’t reveal everything. Undisclosed information gives you an advantage over the listener.
Having secrets is far, far different from being a faker. An individual that keeps some things hidden is not a fabricator. Only the man who remains silent can never be accused of fraud.
A man who doesn’t talk about certain things has a true ethical foundation. A man who doesn’t mention certain areas of his past has real moral principles. A gentleman doesn’t tell tales out of school, no matter who might be asking.
A judicious human being does out facts on a need-to-know basis. A reputation for always telling the whole truth is the mark of an inferior mind. Keeping your mouth closed is the clearest sign of superior character.

In contemporary America, only a conspiracy theorist truly dares to think for himself. Unless you are a believer in plots swarming around you, then you are just another drone that merely accepts whatever the mass media is saying. Unless you suspect that secret plans flying around you in the ether, then you are vulnerable to government indoctrination.
It doesn’t matter exactly which conspirators that you ultimately decide are scheming against you, it doesn’t matter what plans you determine that the cabal might be working against you, the most important consideration is that you are rejecting consensus reality. I am not concerned if you worry about being sodomized by extraterrestrials – I am not disconcerted if you fear being raped by giant insects – you are still closer to the truth than someone watching network television. You either believe in conspiracies or are part of the hive. No matter how peculiar the speculation, it is still closer to reality than anything you might see in the mass media. No matter how psychotic the conjecture, it still makes more sense than the government is saying. No matter how preposterous the hypothesis, it is still more plausible than the official history.
I despise the ordinary dupe who just wants to enjoy his remaining days on this globe. Anyone who just wants a happy life is never going to understand what is actually happening on this planet. The unwashed and unemployed loner ranting about the Illuminati is living with more awareness than any productive member of society. If you would rather find peace on earth, then you have no desire to know the real truth of this world. Say what you like about a conspiracy theorist – a paranoid man is never superficial human being.
You get a choice in life; you can either devout himself to having a good time or you can focus on understanding the true nature of things. You can’t do both; you can’t have everything. The conspiracy theorist has made a decision that other people don’t have the courage to accept. If you aren’t a conspiracy theorist, then you don’t know shit.
Only conspiracy theory is powerful enough to oppose the establishment’s indoctrination. Only conspiracy mongering is potent enough to throw off a lifetime of communitarian brainwashing.
The conspiracy theorist rejects the socially accepted view of life. The conspiracy monger refuses to accept the worldview implanted by the educational system. Conspiracy theory rejects a lifetime of government socialization. Paranoia rebuffs the best attempt at media indoctrination. Conspiracy theory releases you from the last remaining bonds to mass society.
Conspiracy theory offers a straightforward process for learning what is genuine. Conspiracy theory works as a practical technique for discovering the true nature of human history. Conspiracy theory provides you with a simple, foolproof procedure for determining the ultimate truth of reality: never to trust anything that the authorities might be saying. Like everything else in life, discerning truth is a matter of distrusting everything.
Conspiracy theory presents a hopeless vision of life. The world depicted by conspiracy is a malevolent world. The paranoid vision of existence is a malicious existence. Conspiracy theory presents a vision of unseen hostility directed against you – there ain’t nothing optimistic about that. Conspiracy theory demonstrates that everyone around you has a sinister agenda.
Conspiracy theory doesn’t change anything. Conspiracy theory will not ever present a genuine solution. Knowing the truth of human existence does not free you – realizing the ultimate nature of this world will not make you happy. Understanding the real horror of existence will not save you, but it will make sense of all that you have endured. Not a cure, just a clarification.
Conspiracy leaves you no doubt that you are fucked. But don’t expected there to be any way to get unfucked. Once society screws you over, there’s no way to get unscrewed.

Trying something new in life and failing is much worse than never doing anything at all. Attempting something novel and not succeeding is massively worse than never taking any risk whatsoever.
It is always better not to try anything fresh and different than to be unsuccessful at yet another activity in your worthless life. If your whole existence up to now has been a fiasco, then everything you do in the future will be just as much a failure. If you don’t measure-up, then your reach is always going to be brutally restricted, no matter how much you might wish otherwise. If you have already lost at everything you have tried in life, your luck is certainly never going to change.
The establishment always tells you just to take a chance, just to make an effort, just to try it. All that positive thinking is going to make your inevitable failure all that much worse.
It doesn’t matter how much positive thinking you might do, it doesn’t matter how much you might be motivated, it doesn’t matter how much you might exercise, you penis is never going to get any bigger. Sometimes it is better to accept your limitations, than to be stupid enough to buy the extension device. You may have been born a failure, but you don’t have to become a fool in life as well. A wise man resigns himself to things as they are.
It is better not to buy a single lottery ticket then to gamble and not win. It is better never to place a wager in your life than to gamble on roulette and lose. If the slot machine is rigged against you, the best thing to do is not to insert any more money.
It is better not to start a new business than to lose everything when you inevitably go bankrupt. It is better not to apply for a new job than to have a haughty personal manager reject you with a smirk and a sneer. It is not like you would succeed anyway.
It is better not to love anyone ever than to risk being betrayed by someone that you once allowed to get close. Why bother taking a chance if you have never stood a chance in life?
Like an enlightened master in classic China, the superior man devotes himself to perfecting his mind rather than becoming a productive member of society. The more chances that you take in the larger populace, the more that you will lose of your own personality. Better to weed your backyard garden than to try to make a difference in the outside world.

There is a reason why you are always miserable at your job. There is an obvious reason why you feel wretched at work. And that explanation is labor unions. Look here, things are pitiful in the office not as the result of a tyrannical boss, but because unions enforce a type of totalitarianism at the workplace.
Unions do not ensure that employees are treated right, but guarantee that workers will behave right. Labor unions do not create fair rules, but more rules. Workplace organizing does not promise safety, but sameness. Unions assure obedient workers. Collective bargaining does not contribute to higher wages, but compels an individual be part of a collective in order to receive wages. The reason why employment is so unpleasant is because of labor unions.
Unions enforce conformity. Organized workers are servile workers. Labor unions do not end up with well-paid workers, but well-behaved laborers. The only result of collective action is submissive activity. Unions are not just an enticement for incompetence but also an enforcer of compliance.
There is a reason why established politicians always secure the support of labor unions. An obedient worker becomes an obedient citizen. A docile laborer who does what he is told on the job does what he is told by the media when he is back home. Unions turn wage slaves into deferential citizens who accept their servitude.
Union membership cards are the contemporary equivalent of shackles on the limbs of a slave.
