In your former correspondence, you mentioned that we as a united force are God. We are the absolute power in the universe. As I agree with you, there are some in the resistance who will oppose us. There are those who still cling to their guns and their religion and believe that there is a god out there who will save them. These are the members of the resistance that we must watch out for. We cannot forget the lesson of Poland nearly a half century ago when a no-name bishop united the people and brought about the fall of communism there. We cannot forget the power of authentic brotherhood and solidarity. You know the kind, a brotherhood where one person has the back of another and is willing to sacrifice himself for the good of his neighbor. This is the type of solidarity that gives people the strength to see through our lies. We cannot let them develop these types of friendships. We must continue to isolate them and make them fear one another. We must keep driving wedges between them. We are doing well so far.
Most of these dangerous relationships will develop out of their Christian faith. They believe themselves to be a "body of Christ" in which all members of this body are important and serve a function in their world. What a joke, we know that a body constantly has dead cells that are sloughed off for the new ones to replace them. When one member falls, another rises up, that is the way of the world. Fortunately, the number of Christians who believe this is small. We spent a large portion of our energy the past century making their faith system more "relevant" and easier to swallow. We have turned their god into a vigilante superhero whose only function is to save them when they are in trouble. We have eradicated the notion that if there is a god, this god makes a continuous demand for their hearts and souls. We have bastardized their morality and reduced it to the notion that anything was acceptable as long as it feels good. We transformed their maxim of "love one another" to "always be nice and never disagree with anyone". In short, this process has made them soft and unable to bear the pressure that we are about to lay upon them. Many of the Christian churches have already fallen to our ranks.
But not all. There are those who still believe and follow the words of their god and are still willing to stand up for a cause besides ours. Most of their rank will come from the ignorant farmers and ranchers in the middle of the country. This area doesn't particularly matter as it has no political power. However, these people have always been the hardest to sway for our cause. They will probably seek to form small communities with the intention of opposing us. Ha! That goal is laughable for we will sweep down and crush them. Through the internet, our message can reach to the most remote corners of the world. They cannot shut themselves off to us. And when we do gain political power, their sects are the ones we will gun for first. You've heard of our plan to eliminate livestock due to climate change? Soon, the consumption of meat will be illegal!
Yes, we have learned our lesson in the past and we will not let these hicktown Christians stop us again. We are the flies and will not cease to bite them. Eventually, they will get tired of scratching themselves and beg us for relief. The ones who don't? Well, their God calls them to be martyrs. Let's give them their wish.
No mercy shall be given until all falls. Stay true to the course, my brother.
