A friend of mine told me how she hates her father's dog. Her father's a Narcissist and she hates him for it. Her father loves the dog. Now, considering that Narcissists by definition can't love anyone but themselves, how can her father love the dog? Oh that's right, because the dog's a Narcissist.
Her father loves how the dog constantly fights the other pets for his attention and constantly begs and begs for his attention too. Narcissist loves Narcissist, who'd have thought it? And my friend knows and hates Narcissists and hates the Narcissistic animal.
I could go on and on about how various animals are symbols of Evil. Rats, leeches, snakes and roaches are symbols of psychopathic Evil. Lions and peacocks and swans are symbols of Narcissistic Evil, just at different Presence levels. Dogs ... are actually RWAs. Think of the press, proudly calling themselves "watchdogs" and scornfully condemned as "lapdogs".
Either way, the press are fucking RWAs. Right-Wing Authoritarians who care only for social norms, above and beyond even their own exploitation of those norms. Nowadays, after a whole generation has been raised on Green propaganda, you have plenty of RWAs who spout Green propaganda.
Animals are symbols of Evil for a reason. And the reason is simple and obvious. It's becaues THEY ARE EVIL. Not all of them, just most of them. I mean, cows and moose aren't Evil. Elephants probably aren't, most of them. Sheep while pretty vile probably aren't Evil. Bats aren't, except for vampire bats. But honestly, how many animals are altruistic?
It's not about brainpower either. Owls are symbols of Good. Owls eat rats. Owls are pretty specialized eaters. Or how about otters? The curious little things. But more importantly, there is pretty solid evidence that personality can be traced back all the way to infancy.
First is the fact that every Good person can trace at least some of their ideals all the way back to their first reliable memories. And this is so even for Good people with *very good* memories.
Second is the fact that words which parents use to describe toddlers can often be categorized according to personality. And while the attribution of those words is never reliable due to the weight of the parent's expectations (or their simply being Evil thus finding Good incomprehensible) the words themselves can be reliably categorized as Good or Evil.
'brat' is a word that means Narcissist. Just at a very, very low Presence level. Of course, half the time, parents accuse their children of being brats because the parents are Narcissists. But never mind that, the important thing is that it reliably means 'narcissist'. But I digress, the point is that NATURE is Evil.
Dogs like I said are Evil. They obey us because they think we're their masters, their ALPHAS. The same for horses that think 'the human' or humans in general are the herd stallion. Cats ...? Probably not. They seem like Gaians to me, neither Good nor Evil. Theoretically, all they care about is eating and fucking and drugs, and killing birds and mice. Except they don't organize their lives about it like psychopaths. They care more about blending in like Gaians do.
Man, there's gonna be a lot of Gaians that are going to be PISSED at me for telling everyone that the one reliable feature of a Gaian is that you can't pin down their personality type because what they care about above all else (even slavery or lying) is BLENDING IN. You see a guy you can't figure out who spends all his time blending in and hiding his secrets? GAIAN! If you know to look for it, their obsessive desire for hiding is the one thing that gives them away! It's hilarious!
So yeah, cats. Cats love boxes that are just about their body size. And they love patches on the floor that just happen to hide their fur coats. And they instinctively hide their feces and urine, leaving no trace of themselves for anything to track them down and kill them. And they also manage to do all that with brains the size of a peanut. BEING NOT-EVIL with a brain the size of a peanut. Remarkable.
I could go on this way about this animal or that animal. If I could be arsed about it. I have a much better idea.
Nature As A Whole
When you think of Nature as a whole, what exactly do you think? If you're Werner Herzog then you think "Overwhelming and Collective Murder". I certainly think so. And I think any Good person will too. Not does, but will. There is a reason why "law of the jungle" is synonymous with Evil.
Incidentally, Werner Herzog is obviously autistic and the part-object layer of his brain is scrambled. This makes him egocentric but doesn't mean he's egotistical, and he isn't. Fucked up and Evil mean different things, although all Evil people ARE fucked up. It's rather like the difference between 'government' and 'American government'.
Hmm, I thought that was a digression but it turns out to be on point. Because COGNITION is what separates humans from animals. Lack of cognition is what makes it so psychopaths are just mindless animals that happened to master the trick of speech. It really shouldn't be a punishable offense to kill a psychopath anymore than killing a dog is punishable. But then again morons can't tell a psychopath when they're speaking to them, so it's just as well.
All the biologists that claim we're mere animals, that there's no clear and obvious feature that separates us from animals, that there's no obvious empirical test to distinguish us, that animals are "smarter than you think", that it's all just a giant continuum ... are Evil. They're not merely retarded, idiotic, moronic and stupid. Because it's one thing to cozy up to animals, it's another to lie, and it's still another to earnestly believe all humans are Evil.<=p>
And being Evil, THEY are animals and are projecting THEMSELVES unto US. and that's not even counting the ones that WANT to be animals, that WANT to give up consciousness! Or merely proselytize and speechify that YOU should. Of course, I am using 'us' in the exclusive sense because an awful lot of you retarded morons simply LUVVV nature. And really, that ought to be a test of how Evil or close to Evil a person is.
Werner Herzog loves the Jungle ... reluctantly, against his better judgement. I'd call that Neutral, neither Good nor Evil.
