Interview With THE ADVERSARY Of ALL TIME, Part 4/5
MORE OF THE WORLD ACCORDING TO LEW
Adele pleaded with me to be careful. I kissed her on her cheek and left the library. I proceeded to the front room. Lew was calmy waiting for me. He was playing mindgames with me. He was the taipan and I merely a mongoose, his prey to be toyed with.
Lew thought that he was calling the shots; however I was quite aware of the game he was playing. He does not realize that I, too, am playing a game with him. He thought that he was the alpha in the relationship. Boy, was he dreaming. I was the interviewer, not him. This man was clearly delusional to quite an extreme degree, a typical symptom of the severely schizoid personality.
I was letting Lew pontificate regarding his supposed status. He definitely was clearly in need of some deep psychiatric help in addition to some type of institutionalization. He was clearly insane and not in complete control of his faculties. I have interviewed psychotic personalities before but not to the extent of Lew's personality. I was just going along with the pretense!
Lew continued the discussion on the supposed sorry state of humankind. I informed him that he had a hand in this. He smiled, this time more venomously. He clarified that people chose the dark side on their own without his help. He reiterated that there are ample rewards when one elected to chose his/her baser nature.
Lew asserted that those who choose their more spiritual nature have a harder time in this world. He further elaborated that such people are often derided by others as being goody goody, holy, and sanctimonious. He insisted that such people are considered to be quite above it all.
Lew explained that such people are often martyrs because most people do not wish to be reminded of their higher natures so they are demolished in one fashion or another. He took out a third cigar and started to smoke it. He elucidated that people are actually afraid of their higher nature. He added that the aforementioned is why highly spiritual and evolved people are threats to society.
Lew went on to say that the majority of people do not appreciate being reminded of their imperfections and that what highly spiritual and evolved people inadvertently do. I indicated to Lew that there are more good people in the world than bad. He began to laugh me, this time mockingly. He called me a naive fool.
Lew explained that there are more bad people than what is supposed. He stated to me look at the crime and the constant state of the world. He then asked me if the world is a good place to live. I answered yes. He stated what an utter cretin I was. He stated that the world is in a disharmonious state. He indicated that wars and all sorts of struggle are a constant, instead of the exception in society. He further explained that if there were more good people than bad, there would be no such thing as wars and other conflicts of humankind.
I countered to Lew that it is only a small minority of madpersons who start all the conflict in this world. He refused to listen to and even acknowledge my point. He insisted that the majority of humankind are dissolute and quite damnable. He explained that the majority of humankind will join him in the New Place.
I told Lew do not be so sure of that. He reassured me that most people in this world are damned to say the least. He further asserted that only a minute percentage of humankind are salvageable. I continued to contend that the majority of people are indeed kind and good. He responded to me by only laughing. He stated that I was so utterly stupid that it is quite pathetic.
Lew elucidated further on the premise that humankind is desolutely hopeless. He gave examples of increasing poverty especially in the United States, the richest country in the world. He stated that poverty is totally inexcusable in the world, especially in the United States, where there is more than plenty to go around. I sarcastically asked him what did he suggest.
Lew stated that if resources were humanely distributed, there would be no such thing as poverty or want. I reiterated to him that poor people, especially in the United States, want and choose to be poor. I asserted quite strongly that there is no excuse for anyone being poor in America unless they wish to be. Adele strongly concurred with me. Lew asked her tersely who told her to interject herself into the conversation.
Adele stated that she should know about the situation of poverty. She related that she came from impoverished Mississippian sharecroppers. She maintained that she refused to use poverty as an excuse. She indicated that she gained scholarships to high school and college. She proudly asserted that she raised herself out of poverty. She added that there is no excuse not to better oneself, promptly excusing herself from the front room.
Lew mumbled that neither I nor Adele knew what we were talking about. He stated what we have said about poverty was totally BS. As I attempted to further explain my point, he coarsely cut me off. He maintained that there is poverty in the world because selfish people refuse to share their wealth. I was taken quite aback at what he said. I told him in no uncertain terms that no one owes anything anything. I asserted that if one wants something, he/she can work for it!
Lew mimicked my statement. He bade me to listen to him very closely. He averred that the average Joe or Josephina can work all he/she wants but still he/she cannot break even. He shouted to me if I comprehend this premise. I informed him that he was only making excuses for the lazy among us.
Lew then called me an utter a**********hole. I told him that I did not like his tone of voice. He merely stood up and punched hard in the stomach. I was reeling over with pain. I was gasping for air. He stood over, laughing and call me a wusp boy. I told him that he was a bully who deserved to be in jail. He told that he was in jail of sorts!
I decided to pay this quite delusional man no mind. Why was I getting upset at what he says. I was thinking to myself that this man is totally illogical regarding his premise about life. I continued with the "interview". Lew went on to state that poor people are that way because they are exploited by the wealthy. He indicated that no one in their right thinking mind would desire poverty when he/she could be wealthy and enjoying all that life has of offer.
I stated that what Lew was saying was nonsensical. He continued that poor people are victims. I refuted his logic, explaining that while some poor people are exploited, others by virtue of their sheer laziness want to be in their predictament. He just looked at me, saying nothing else.
Lew stated that humankind loves to exploit and enslave each other in one way or another. I asserted to him that this was not necessarily true. He bluntly told me to cut out the superficialities and to get real. I reiterated that such was not the case always.
Lew explained that human societies, especially modern ones, are akin to jungles. He explained that there is someone who is always on top. I said so what! He explained that the societal pecking order creates inequality among humankind in all its insidious forms. I explained that it is quite natural for some people to want to be on top. I stated that he of all people show know this!
For the first time in his life, Lew's face whitened. He stated that the subject was not about him but the dismal state of humankind. He explained that the pecking of humankind causes inequality in all its insidious forms. He stated that humankind is actually closer to its animal nature than it would ever be to its more spiritual nature. I said that there is nothing wrong with success and achievement.
Lew then let out a quite harrowing laugh. He indicated that humankind's system of success is often ruthlessly competitive in addition to exploiting and eradicating those who are perceived to be weaker. He further asserted that modern societies have a winner take it mentality. He maintained that humans are told that they must win in order to be respected and adulated. He elucidated that society has its rich rewards for the winners among humankind. He conveyed that if one does not win, he/she is considered to be a loser to be exploited and then tossed aside, just like a wounded animal. He added that at least the wounded animal is immediately killed.
Lew maintained that human societies are often quite worse than animal societies. He stated that the weakest among humankind are either exploited and/or left to lanquish mentally, physically, and emotionally. He referred back to the homeless situation. I stated that it is the survival of the strongest. He rolled his eyes at back, bellowing at me to stop quoting Darwin. He asserted that my premise like the majority of humankind is atavistically inhumane.
Lew stated that the spiritual evolution of humankind would progress faster if humankind elected to cooperate, instead of competing with each other. I head Adele's voice again. I went to see what she wanted. She informed me that Lew was a trickster who did not mean anything that he said. She indicated that he was using me as bait and I was falling in his trap. As I attempted to speak, Adele told me to keep quiet. She read another Biblical verse about being ensnared...............
