For that very reason.

So are you, Sonny.
Also simple is the "simple fact" that I don't trust collectivists, Sonny.
You may rant against individualism all you like - it's your "right" although,
obviously, you'd like to do away with that "right" for other people.
For someone who so obviously identifies with the characters - the "bad guys"
- from _1984_ and _Brave New World_, I'm surprised that you don't realize
that nearly everyone on this forum pretty much think of you as a "gamma
It's not just that your "theology" has as its goal that """""John Knight"""""
is simply (there's that word again) wonderful and people who disagree with
him are "muds", liberals, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, Atheists, Agnostics,
Buddhists, Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, Islamics, Unitarians,
Penecostal, Holiness, PB, AMB, Episcopalian, brighter than John Knight, not a
drunk like John Knight, not someone who combines twisting statistics with not
understanding statistics and is psychologically healthy but you really seem
to """think""" (if a functioning brain stem can be said to be able to
"think") that you're being laughed at by very nearly all those who read you
and your silly pseudo-religion and your perverted pseudo-god.

I had heard that you're in line for a couple of transplants: backbone, guts
and testicles because all of yours are nonfunctional.
You might try for a brain transplant, also; almost anything would be an
improvement over your emotional upheavels from your brain stem.
