I've been thinking about the bible story of Genesis lately and it seems that if you think of it "not" as the genesis of the "world;" but, rather the genesis of the "state" it still works, especially the story of the expulsion of Adam and Eve, from the Garden of Eden. I think the 'serpent" also represents the "state." Of course, many will say that the serpent represents the Vatican; but, it may also represent the state in abstract. There's also the fact that the Vatican is the great instance of the concept of the state that still exists in its original form, as the Roman Empire. I also think that it's no coincidence that the serpent tempted "Eve." She was far more susceptible to the lure; and, it was ultimately Adam that the serpent wanted to put in bondage. Adam, sensing his own vulnerability would have recognized his enemy. Eve felt no such threat. Eve had one job in the garden. She had "only" one thing that she had to do right. "That" was "not" betray her husband, and she f**ked it up! Since then, the vast majority of humanity has grown-up, lived and died, in feudal-slavery. Even now, the state knows that if you want to control men, you have to get to the women first. Whether or not most people really understand it, there appears to be some kind of hidden arrangement between our women and the state, as evidenced by the fact that women usually win most custody hearings, regardless of their fitness to be a parent. They also usually win most property settlements, usually keeping the family home. Yes, I do believe as men, we've been zucked; and, it's time to turn this thing around, or at least level the playing field. Marriage, family and the state should "never" mix!
