the devil and scott for chris

the submission:

“For thousands of years Eastern tribes wore no clothes until Western missionaries imposed their original sin ideology. Now the East appears more puritanical than the hedonistic clergy of the West, many of whom are theoretically celibate, yet have been shown to be paedophilic abusers. Despite this hypocrisy, their grip on power is sustained by conservative forces, the same forces that attack climate science, foster trickle up economics, attempt to crush alternative sexualities, … A case in point, conservative Western religious authority maintained a political battle against same sex marriage, while its ‘celibate’ male clergy was fucking boys and girls. This power cabal upholds its laws of morality while hypocritically denying the true morality of personal freedom, & the future safety & wellbeing of humanity. It seems obvious to disrobe, to remove European clothing, that of cold climate people, as the planet heats up. Redress this imbalance by undressing. Ultimately, liberation against the legal obligation of wearing clothes is unlikely to get much political traction against major challenges like economic inequality, climate change, etc. It would be a tiny revolution in the scale of things.”
