a majority

"We should flee the multitude of men going in a herd."
- The Chaldæan Oracles of Zoroaster, translated by W. Wynn Westcott

"When it becomes dominated by a collectivist creed, democracy will inevitably destroy itself." - Fredrich August von Hayek

"Truth is not determined by majority vote."
– Doug Gwyn



If the majority says the Earth is flat then the Earth IS flat

If a majority says the Earth is flat
then the Earth is flat!

"In matters of conscience, the law of the majority has no place." – Mohandas Gandhi

"The voice of the majority is no proof of justice." – Johann von Schiller

"Mankind will in time discover that unbridled majorities are as tyrannical and cruel as unlimited despots." – John Adams


"The tyranny of the majority is a very real danger.

It is a mistake to suppose that the majority is necessarily right.

On every new question the majority is always wrong at first.

Whenever any new fundamental issue arises, the majority are in the wrong, because they are guided by tradition, prejudice and habit.

One of the sources of evil in modern large democracies is the fact that most of the electorate have no direct or vital interest in most of the questions that arise.

Should Welsh children be allowed the use of the Welsh language in schools?

Should gipsies be compelled to abandon their nomadic life at the bidding of the education authorities?

Should miners have an eight-hour day?

Should Christian Scientists be compelled to call in doctors in case of serious illness?

These are matters of passionate interest to certain sections of the community, but of very little interest to the great majority.

If they are decided according to the wishes of the numerical majority, the intense desires of a minority will be overborne by the very slight and uninformed whims of the indifferent remainder.

If the minority are geographically concentrated, so that they can decide elections in a certain number of constituencies, like the Welsh and the miners, they have a good chance of getting their way. But if they are scattered and politically feeble, like the gipsies and the Christian Scientists, they stand a very poor chance against the prejudices of the majority. Even when they are geographically concentrated, like the Irish, they may fail to obtain their wishes, because they arouse some hostility or some instinct of domination in the majority.

Such a state of affairs is the negation of all democratic principles.

Progress comes through the gradual effect of a minority in converting opinion and altering custom.

For such reasons, it is of the utmost importance that the majority should refrain from imposing its will as regards matters in which uniformity is not absolutely necessary." - Bertrand Russell

This web site is not a commercial web site
and is presented for educational purposes only.



This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a “hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
