I can't deal with these logical contradictions to my ultimate values because the Socratic method demands eliminating my state hypothesis. I have faith my state gods are not the biggest murderers and largest threat to a long and happy life in human history.
I pray to my state gods every day and render unto them. They will not let me down.
I have faith my state gods can do a better job than any supernatural god designing a real check on power that is superior to competition
I refuse to believe my state gods are anything but holy, divine, and good.
WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH
