Seldom does evil disclose its mechanisms; yet, only by understanding these can we protect ourselves. Matthew 4:1-11provides an awesome lesson on this when it describes the temptation of Jesus by Satan. First Satan attempts to create doubt: “If thou be the Son of God…” In the second attempt, Satan exploits the doubt created by saying “cast thyself down,” in other words: “I don’t believe you; prove that by violating your Faith.” Finally, after everything else fails, an offer is made: “All these things will I give thee…” Failing the test is easy if Satan’s temptation mechanism is not understood. Unluckily, the mechanisms of Western media and governments are extremely similar to the descriptions in Matthew.
Modern Western regimes behave similarly to the text above. More often than not, evil arrives disguised as Angel of Light (2 Corinthians 11: 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light); many succumb to its charming smile, dandy haircut, and proper manners, especially if he looks like a popular comedian, a true friend of the people. In his still short tenure as British Prime Minister, David Cameron – slightly resembling Chandler from Friends – is rapidly amassing an awful reputation, which includes savage violations of human rights. That’s to be expected from a graduate of Eton and Oxford, the finest wombs of slavers, colonizers, and energy pirates. It would be unfair to center this article on David Cameron, as several of the events about to be included predates his period as Prime Minister, yet, he apparently will soon outshine his predecessors. Such an early event was recently criticized by Cameron himself following the publication of the Bloody Sunday Lord Saville Report on June 15, 2010: "What happened on Bloody Sunday was both unjustified and unjustifiable. It was wrong,” and: "These are shocking conclusions to read and shocking words to have to say. But you do not defend the British army by defending the indefensible; " enlightened words from an unenlightened leader. The British Army is indefensible on moral grounds.
In order to properly put this in context, I must make a detour through the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973, on the situation in Libya, which was adopted on March 17, 2011. Under this resolution thousands of air attacks on the Libyan civilian population were conducted by NATO. By no way these can be defined as good actions. How comes the UN is commanding evil? Here is where we must understand the methods used by evil. The resolution doesn’t allow such attacks; on the contrary, it defines the need to protect civilians. After it was adopted, and knowing nobody would bother reading it (sorry to have spoiled that!),Nato’s Terror Marshals did what they always wanted to, completely ignoring the binding decision; after all, who will dare attacking – or even denounce – them.
Reading the resolution is important, especially the parts denouncing the Gaddafi regime. It’s too long to be brought here, and since it is readily accessible on the web, I’ll cite only a few sentences:
