I Blame The Romans.
Western “Christian” society is certainly a complete mess. Most would agree, whatever particular logic leads them there. Personally I blame the Romans. The Vatican Church is the remnant of the Roman Senate, our languages are Latin or Latin influenced, our philosophy, calendar and gods are Roman.
It’s the new year now, for me. I’m a Pagan in that regards, paying attention to the earthly timing of things, not the man-mind-induced nonsense others pay heed to. I don’t believe and never did. The days are getting longer. You can tell if you look at the sky from time to time. The quality of light has changed.
We have urgent need to cast off that which is wrong or misguided after examining that which is unexamined.
