Skimming Off the Scum
Skimming off the scum generally means getting rid of waste. Scraping off from the surface of useful material the rising of impurities and muck. Isn’t that the intention of the New World Order? Wasn’t that Hitler’s intention in Europe in 1933? Hasn’t that been the general intention of all totalitarian governments since the beginning of time?
What a disgusting image, but I believe it is true. In the eyes of the perpetrators, the old and infirm, among others, are the “scum” of the Brave New World being planned and implemented as I write this. Killing them off like weak, useless, and expensive, vermin is the prudent thing to do. Scum. That is all they (we) are to these people. Scum.
In Naomi Wolf’s fabulous book she makes a very pertinent point. Here is a quote from The Bodies of Others:
But to understand what has happened to us, I must ask you to suspend for a while a thought process that investigators call “mirror imaging.” This is when we assume others think as we do. Because most of us are decent people, and not sociopaths or psychopaths, we tend to assume that others are also driven by basic human motivations such as empathy, altruism, and kindness—or even just by the basic notion that other human beings are also deserving of life, self-determination, and dignity.
This “mirror imaging,” though, is more than simply a flaw in analysis—it is a fatal error that leads us to miss important conclusions. For others do not always think as we do.
Here Wolf points out the reason why we can never say, “oh, they would never do such a thing,” when it is pointed out that we very well may be experiencing an intentional skimming.
