If I We're the Devil...

by Paul Harvey

If I were the Devil... if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. And I'd have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I wouldn't be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree.

So I would set about however necessary to take over the United States. I would subvert the churches first, I would begin with a campaign of whispers, with the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.”

To the young I would whisper that: “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square.” And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: “Our Father, which art in Washington..."

And then I would get organized, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I’d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the devil, I would soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves, until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I would have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.

If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to discipline emotions, just let those run wild. Until before you knew it you have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door. Within a decade I'd have prisons overflowing. I'd have judges promoting pornography. Soon, I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse and then from the Houses of Congress.

And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.

If I were the Devil, I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg, and the symbol of Christmas, a bottle. If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And what'll you bet I couldn't get whole States to promote gambling as the way to get rich. I would caution against extremes and hard work, in patriotism, in moral conduct.

I would convince the young that marriage is old fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that what you see on TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure.

In other words, if I were the Devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.

Paul Harvey, Good Day.

Mind Control For A New World Order

The dominant Elite of every era has controlled all sectors of society from the top down, working in mysterious and usually cruel ways only fully decipherable to the select few. These "High Priests" of the New World Order knew the best way to conquer a man is to capture his mind, and possessed the intuitive understanding of how to manipulate and influence the mind. When man discovered he could take full advantage of his brother, use fake empathy and understanding in order to exert power over him, he then proved man's capacity for evil knows no bounds.

Through the ages, nothing has changed; there is nothing new under the sun, our "Illumined" masters still seek to enslave mankind with ever more ingenious ways to lie, cheat and steal, to deceive the public into accepting a life they would otherwise reject.
