Hello America! From Master Control World Headquarters in Beautiful
Portland Oregon, this... is NENSLO.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind our faithful
readers to be sure to keep plenty of TERMINOLOGY on hand for your personal
You see, we were engaged in a slight conversation the other day
with a "Professional" in the Mental Health Industry, someone who has
dedicated their lives to helping the less fortunate among us. During the
course of this conversation it became obvious that it would not be
possible to come to an agreement on the interpretation of certain facts,
whereupon we were informed that we are "psychotic" and "cannot reason."
Terminology protects us, dear readers, by reducing things to their
lowest level, making them harmless, one-dimensional things which can be
neatly filed away and forgotten. Terminology tears the legs off anything
which imperils the flimsy structure of ou r own world-view, giving us the
illusion of stability while perched at the wobbly end of a lot of
fragments of random evidence tied together with delicate strands of
coincidence and assumption. A properly labeled idea or object (and
terminology reduces PEOPLE to mere objects) becomes Proof of our
correctness, in that it can be used as evidence whether it agrees with us
or not. On those occasions when it doesn't "fit in" to our structure of
belief it is rendered invalid by its label, evidence that IT is
wrong, and WE are STILL RIGHT.
You may say, if we do that, we'll just be FOOLING OURSELVES, we'll
just be REJECTING a lot of concepts that may be more valid than the
illusions we strive to maintain! That's right, friends, but DON'T WORRY
ABOUT IT. Everybody's doing it, so it MUST be alright! You want to be
like everybody else, don't you? You don't want to be thought some sort of
WEIRDO just because you'd rather BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF and ADAPT YOUR
LIFE TO THE FACTS OF THE SITUATION than consign ideas, people,
philosophies, even NATIONS to the memory hole for failing to agree with
your PERSONAL OPINIONS! YOU DON'T WANT TO BE CALLED PSYCHOTIC AND
RENDERED INVALID BECAUSE YOU CAN'T REASON, DO YOU?? Of course not.
Remember, when you come across ANYTHING which doesn't support your
worldview, Label it, File it, and FORGET IT. Then you'll be NORMAL like
This is NENSLO "GOOD LUCK"
