“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” — Attributed to Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Chief of the Nazi Party
People tell small lies. They shouldn’t, but they do. They know others are more likely to believe a small “white” lie more than a whopper. What happens when it is necessary to make people believe a wholescale big lie to advance a political, ideological, or sociological goal? As Goebbels said, keep repeating the lie until people accept it. The public mindset must be massaged into mental dullness and general intellectual malaise. The big lie must be introduced in increments, then reinforced by intimidation through name-calling, censure, isolation, and even threats of violence against stubborn dissenters. In his autobiographical manifesto Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler addressed the big lie:
In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.
It is a colossal lie that people can change their gender or that there are many genders. There are not. We all know there are two genders. Gender is not assigned at birth. Gender is obvious at birth (and before). Ideology or wishful thinking does not determine sex, genetics does. Men cannot become women or vice versa. One can make themselves appear or seem like the opposite sex with their appearance and hormone manipulation and physical mutilation, but every cell in their bodies identifies them as the sex they have been since their beginning, in utero. Granted, there is a rare condition known as ambiguous genitalia where an infant is born with genitalia not clearly identifiable as male or female. It is a rare disorder that affects 1 in 1,000-4,500 births. It is an anomalous disorder and should not be used to bolster gender ideology. Any reasonable person can and should deduce this.
A clear-thinking culture does not embrace or promote the false gender identity social construct. Gender identity is not malleable or fluid; is a false narrative of social reconstructionists and wishful thinking of a tiny minority who want to rebuild society to their own liking and preferences, not what’s good for the majority. It is intended to confuse the large majority. A woman may say she is a male trapped in a female’s body. I could flippantly respond by saying that I was too, then I was born. But that downplays a psychiatric condition of tormented souls. Her confusion or imagined alternate reality does not need affirmation of her gender identity disorder that can—in its most extreme—result in surgical mutilation. She has a condition that may well have a psychiatric connection. She needs treatment and therapy, not surgery.
And it is criminal to play into a pubescent or prepubescent gender confusion with hormone-blocking drugs that may have long-term risks or physical mutilation with mastectomies and so-called gender reassignment surgery. Doctors who play into this psychiatric disorder should be disciplined or lose their medical licenses.
Society still has enough residual morality to be horrified if a doctor amputated a healthy limb on a person suffering from the extremely rare condition known as Body Integrity Identity Disorder, also known as Amputee Identity Disorder. or apotemnophilia. It is a disturbing mental illness characterized a person’s persistent desire to have a physical disability such as an amputation of a healthy limb or paraplegia where a surgeon snips their spinal cord. The patient may believe a limb is not theirs. Any reasonable physician would not acquiesce to such a request from a patient. They would treat the patient for their obvious psychosis. Remember, it was not very long ago that mutilating of genitalia at the request of patient suffering from gender identity disorder was unthinkable.
Although the American Psychiatric Association renamed gender identity disorder in the 2013 DSM-5, I don’t think it was because of any empirical evidence. The change to gender dysphoria was in deference to the hypersensitivity of the transsexual community and woke pressure.
Now, the transsexual lobby demands that the English language be altered to accommodate them, despite the fact they only represent about 4.5% population. Preferred pronouns do not clarify, they confuse! Ninety-four percent of the population must give in to the neurotic demands of a small minority? No! We must understand that LGBTQ have their concerns and be kind. That is different than acquiescence. The majority must now step to the plate and take control of society’s direction for this confused and muddled time, and for posterity. We must return our culture to the tried-and-true Judeo-Christian moral ethos that made Western civilization great. The majority must be kind and take care of minorities, whether they be refugees, people with disabilities, unwanted children, the mentally ill, or the sexually confused. But not at the expense of the majority of the population. Social policy and community behaviour must reflect this. We live in a democracy where the majority still rules. And transgender ideology must not be promoted because it encourages unnecessary confusion, particularly amongst children. Understand that much of the moral mess we are in can be related back to relativism that resulted from turning away from God. This was necessary for liberal progressives in order to dispel the idea of Objective Truth, in favour of relative truth. That way, anything can be justified, from abortion to euthanasia, to redefining marriage, family, and sex.
Upon reading this article, I will, no doubt, be called homophobic, a hater, a Christian fanatic. So be it. Because I disagree with someone, and their agenda or ideology, does not make me a hater or homophobic. It means we have a difference in opinion. At this present time, I still have the freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression. It’s one of Canada’s four fundamental freedoms identified in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (Similar the American Constitution).
I ask the majority to stand for what you know deep within your hearts: Marriage is between a man and a woman. There are two genders, just as there have always been throughout history. Every child matters, whether born or unborn. Killing terminally ill and disabled people with euthanasia must not be tolerated. Helping suicidal people kill themselves must not be tolerated and be criminalized again. Children deserve to be children without being exposed to transgender ideology in school curricula or overt exposure such as drag queen story time. Let’s return to sanity and order.
Here is the Big Lie: There is no God from whom Truth comes, so man can make himself in his own desired image. It’s a whopper!
