To my masters, the Sages of Emetya, your humble servant Veris offers the results of his investigation into the mentality and behavior of “man,” the creature now dominating planet Earth. Special attention will be given in Part II of this report to men called “Jews,” once the most intelligent and noble denizens of this planet, but now greatly diminished in mind and character and ruled by fools and knaves.
Such is the intellectual decay and moral pollution on planet Earth that I cannot recommend its colonization. Hence, to forestall further consideration of such a project, I deem it my duty to state at the outset that, as regards the present character of mankind, a more stupid, shameless, mendacious, and violent species of animals can hardly be imagined.
Originally, man was defined as homo sapiens, a rational being capable of achieving “wisdom” and “understanding,” of exercising “discernment” and “judgment,” of evincing “esthetic taste” and “refinement”--qualities which enabled man to apprehend the True, the Good, and the Beautiful. Some centuries ago, however, man’s brain was infected by a mind-debilitating virus. His reason lost the capacity of intellectual detachment or independence, such that his ideas concerning the True, the Good, and the Beautiful became conditioned by his instincts and emotions, or by his social and economic circumstances. This virus, which may be classified as Sapiential Deficiency Syndrome (SDS), has rendered man immune to noble thoughts and lofty ambitions. He now wallows in a hotbed of desires, where all desires or preferences are equally justifiable. Today this mindless creature cannot even distinguish between what is rational and irrational, normal and abnormal.
Only recently certain psychiatrists called “anti-psychiatrists” denied the distinction between sanity and insanity. They were joined by sociologists who equated mental illness (e.g. smearing feces on walls) with “rule-breaking” or “bad manners.” These relativists went so far as to claim that insanity is the equal of sanity, that unreason has as much dignity, vitality, and worth as reason. Such was the influence of this relativism or mental egalitarianism that 55% of the public in one country, the United States of America, did not believe there was such a thing as mental illness!
