If you think the world has gone crazy — and there’s plenty of evidence it has always been crazy — it could be because of the dominance of words from outside your brain interfering with your own perceptions that form naturally inside your everyday thought processes. Call them inklings or intuition. They trigger barely audible alarms every time something doesn’t sound quite right to you. Minus the programming, this is your own innate intelligence speaking.
Serpent or dragon, as an image for a group of word-controlled-people-acting-as-a-single-organism, was widely used even before any word histories now available, but not always did the image carry an unfavorable connotation. Only the northern Europeans seem to have had a conscious commitment never to create such a semi-organism among themselves — and to destroy any that tried to encroach on them.
The Jews as a group never advocated a relationship of an individual to a god who cared anything about individuals. The only relationship they advocated was that of “a people” to a group god that dealt with cohesive “peoples” or serpents.
Such an inauthentic attitude using their G-d as an excuse for their constant crimes against humanity turned one xenophobic subgroup of the human race into a murderous parasite feeding upon the remainder of the species.
Most present-day Jews claim to be “parts” of two separate “wholes.” Jews who are “United States citizens” have a divided allegiance between the ancient Jewish serpent and the United States.
Jews have practiced this same sort of dual identity — simultaneously claiming to be “parts” of two separate “wholes” — for thousands of years and continue to follow the practice even though it often results in their persecution. Obviously, they continue to play this double game because their three thousand years of Jewish tradition show them that the Jewish serpent has repeatedly eaten up other serpents.
