The Deceived

The Deceived.

A very big group. Varied nationalities, backgrounds, motives, shapes, sizes, and looks. Because they are so varied I'm not sure I can say too much about them as a whole. But here is a first attempt.

Contradictions mask contradictions.

They are deceived for many reasons. Some just say, "do what you gotta do to get along."

Some have financial interests which they fearfully imagine will diminish, so they try to stifle and prevent change, growth, maturation, evolution. Those who work to do this often go on to become Men (and Women) of Lawlessness.

Some line up political favors to push whatever agenda they have, and when it comes time for payback, they may find themselves asked to push a former ally's agenda which they do not believe in. Oh the webs they weave.

Some of them venture out into the other 5 Prohibitionists' Mindsets. But most of The Deceived are not particularly interested in getting into deep details, statistics, the fancy jargon, etc… "I mean, do you think I can become an expert in every issue which crosses my path?"

Still others of The Deceived go around repeating the words of the masters of terrorist projections, the False Prophets of Prohibition.

But I think for the most part, many of The Deceived are mainly looking for a calm voice to talk authoritatively to them. Although some are too macho to admit it.
