Have you ever tried to reason an individual out of an idea which wasn’t born on the basis of reason? And have you ever witnessed how the same person tries to cherish the same unreasonable idea, despite the fact that you have pointed out that the idea is promiscuously embarrassing?
I have learned over the years that if a person does not love the truth, has no desire to follow his own metaphysical claim to its bitter end, and has no interest whatever in pursuing the truth all the way to the end, then you are wasting your time with that person. You might as well throw in the towel and move on to something else.
Last January, I wrote an article on the metaphysical nature of reality arguing that the denial of practical reason inevitably leads to intellectual suicide. I also implicitly argued that practical reason, which is synonymous with morality, invariably leads to God. An interesting individual responded by saying that “logic and reason prove nothing” and wrote a lengthy paragraph pretentiously using logic and reason to show that logic and reason prove nothing!
As Jim W. Dean would have said, you can’t make this stuff up. It was really too good to be true because people shouldn’t insult even a freshman in philosophy with that kind of nonsense. It’s not very often that you get a knocked down argument, but once a person rejects logic and reason as “nothing,” you can be sure that the person is carrying his own casket. In response, I said:
“In order to say that ‘logic and reason prove nothing,’ one obviously has to use logic and reason–an impressively and fantastically incoherent argument. In fact, if ‘logic and reason prove nothing,’ why should we listen to Mr. [X] here? Is he telling us to ignore his point? If this is so, then he shall have his wish.
“It is simply astonishing to see that thinking people cannot see the trap of their own circular reasoning. How can you use ‘logic and reason’ to prove that logic and reason mean nothing? If that is not the zenith of irrationality, what is?
“I remember one time a friend of mine gave a lecture at a university during which he argued that things must be coherent. At the end of the lecture, an irate lady walked to the microphone and asked, ‘Why does everything have to be coherent?’ To which the speaker responded quite humorously, ‘Do you want me to give you a coherent answer or incoherent one’? She was completely stumped and she quietly went back to her seat.”
I simply could not persuade that man, and he could not see (I would say deliberately) that the moment he denies logic and reason, then his point will inevitably become obsolete and intellectually worthless. It was not that he lacked intellectual sophistication to see that point; it was the fact that he had no interest in knowing, living and defending the truth, which is our only weapon against moral and intellectual bondage.
Over the past few months, Putin has been battling NWO agents and Satan worshipers with intensity, moral clarity, and intellectual honesty. Yet some of his messages fell on deaf ears precisely because one of the principles that make up the New World Order is that it has no interest in the truth. In fact, the New World Order has and will seek to supplant the truth with sugar-coded lies, colossal fabrications, and mass deceptions. That is why they promote massive deceptions about Putin and Russia.
Yet despite all the political machination by NWO agents, Putin is fearless and doesn’t seem to back down. The Daily Beast has recently admitted that “Russian, Syrian, and Iranian forces are getting ready for an assault on a rebel stronghold.” Listen to this recent admission by the New York Times:
“Two weeks of air and missile strikes in Syria have given Western intelligence and military officials a deeper appreciation of the transformation that Russia’s military has undergone under President Vladimir V. Putin, showcasing its ability to conduct operations beyond its borders and providing a public demonstration of new weaponry, tactics and strategy.
“The strikes have involved aircraft never before tested in combat, including the Sukhoi Su-34 strike fighter, which NATO calls the Fullback, and a ship-based cruise missile fired more than 900 miles from the Caspian Sea, which, according to some analysts, surpasses the American equivalent in technological capability.”
So, is the New York Times going to stop denigrating Putin now? The bigger question is: how did Putin end up being “the new sheriff in town”?
In any event, the man has guts. He may have his flaws, as everyone does, but he deserves our respect and gratitude for challenging NWO agents and Satan worshipers. He knows that they are anti-reason or anti-Logos. He knows that he has to use harsh words to teach those guys a lesson. With respect to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, he told one of his ambassadors:
“Tell your dictator president he can go to hell along with his ISIL terrorist and I shall make Syria to nothing but a ‘Big Stalingrad’, for Erdoğan and his Saudi allies are no vicious than Adolf Hitler.. How hypocrite is your president as he advocates democracy and lambasts the military coup d’état in Egypt. And he simultaneously condones all terrorist activities aimed to overthrow Syrian president.”
That Turkey has been abetting terrorist groups such as ISIS is not far-fetched. This has also been pointed out by Mike Harris in his recent debate with Richard Millet on Press TV. Gordon Duff has argued that Erdoğan is “complicit in massive industrial theft from Syria.”
So, Putin is right: If ISIS is raising hell in Syria and elsewhere, and if Erdoğan is supporting those terrorist groups, then both Erdoğan and ISIS would end up in the same place. It is like Dante describing sodomites and usurers in the same circle in hell.
 You’d be amazed to know that many so-called historians practically believe that truth is not really important. I have interacted with at least four of those historians in the past.

 Isn’t it interesting that the debate was by Press TV? Doesn’t the Zionist media tell us ad nauseam that Iran is undemocratic and terrorist state? Press TV moderated the debate, but the Zionist state won’t even allow that debate to take place on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, etc.? Perhaps my good friend Dr. Fredrick Toben was right again: with the culmination of the Zionist regime, Western man only has the freedom to go shopping.
