Axioms of Annihilation 2: Desecration

Orthodoxy means the generally accepted practice or doctrine of a particular industry, faith, political faction, etc. It also means the status quo or current party line. Orthodoxy can manifest itself in every political party and in every school of thought. Orthodoxy isn’t a problem if it is allowed to evolve and adapt to changing circumstances.
However, if evolution is not allowed, certain weapons and principles are needed to annihilate toxic orthodoxies. Enter, DESECRATION.
When everything is considered sacred, bad ideas can’t be criticized, free speech is targeted and effective solutions to societal problems are asphyxiated. Desecration is required to attack sacred frauds so that humanity can get back to focusing on the only two things that matter: the pursuit of truth & the improvement of human welfare.

We live in a society with an endless list of items that are said to be sacrosanct.
  • Gun Rights
  • Faith
  • Love
  • Christmas
  • Diversity
  • Education
  • Life
  • Liberty
  • The Pursuit of Happiness
  • Justice
  • Art
  • Equality
  • Religious Freedom
  • Free Speech
  • Nature
  • Inclusion
  • The list goes on and on
None of these are intrinsically sacred. If any one of them is in fact sacred, its sanctity is derived, in some way, from one of two sources: human well-being and truth. These are the wellsprings from which all things sacred flow. 
Any concept, creed, philosophy, religion or other category that is not grounded in the search for well-being, truth or both is not sacred. 
It’s not always easy to identify or explain how something is fundamentally rooted in truth or the improvement of human well-being, but it’s often very easy to see when something is not linked to those sacred origins.
