No, Riginslinger, the "problem" (as seen by you) is that they don't think the way YOU want them to.

But everybody thinks. Matter of fact, they can't seem to   stop thinking compulsively in every moment except when they go into deep sleep...or during sex...or if they can accomplish meditation successfully. (and very few people can do the latter...their minds and bodies are too restless) (everyone can "do" sex, though, so it's a very popular way to stop thinking for a short period of time...the bandaid approach to stress)

This is people's problem, generally...they can't STOP thinking. It drives them slowly crazy. It stresses them out and messes up their personality and their relations with other people. They drink and take drugs and acquire multiple addictions to try to get away from the stress their constant, aimless, restless, and combative thinking causes. They join cults to try to escape it. They become fanatics of one type or another (atheist? religious? political? gender issue? gay liberation? White supremacy? Black Power? whatever the hell...) They develop phobias and obsessions with certain specific issues to appease their obsessive and mostly negative thinking. And their "thinking" is normally nothing but the rerunning of a bunch of old and very tired stress tapes....such as your tape that sets you constantly in combat with "religion", for instance. You're a prisoner of your mental negativity tapes, just the same as the people you criticize...only it's a different set of tapes, that's all.

I'm waiting for you to shut the damn machine off, take the old tape out, and give it a rest. Try a new tape. A positive one. One that doesn't involve continually attacking people whom you see as different from you.
