“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16. Yes, it is a shame they gave their gifts over to satan for his twisted pleasure.

Thanks for posting this, Al. I had never heard of nor seen these women before. And that brings me to point out that, contrary to your one sentence article, these are NOT girls who are growing up but, instead, these are fully grown women. You are obviously getting old. Has it really been THAT long?

It has. Most people in positions of power look like children to me. Cops look like Boy Scouts. Doctors look like Doogie Howser. I watch an occasional movie drama that includes both a 40-year old mother and her 20-year old daughter and I can’t tell which is older. They both look like kids to me.
Most of this failure to discriminate based on age is due to my own advancing age.
But my tendency to see most “adults” as “children” isn’t completely irrational. We live in an extraordinarily complex, confusing and contradictory society and economy. We follow those who ACT like “leaders” because we don’t have a clue and hope our chosen “actors/leaders” do.
But the truth is that virtually no one under age 50 has any idea of what’s really going on–and only a few over 50 have much of a clue. Most of America’s (and the world’s) alleged “adults” are as ignorant, confused and helpless as children. They’re almost all just “acting” like adults but secretly hoping that somebody, somewhere really is an “adult” and knows enough to prevent the whole mysterious “system” from falling in our heads.
We live in an increasingly unnatural world which we are less and less able to influence or even comprehend. Former “natural” notions that we become adults able to handle our own affairs when we turn 18 or maybe 21 are increasingly unreasonable.
As a young man I was fairly big and uncommonly strong. By the time I was 21, I’d worked my way to India, Africa, Alaska, Mexico, been involved in a plot to sink a communistic spy ship in Vera Cruz harbor, and served as a paratrooper in the 82n Airborne Division. If you’d asked if I was a “man” (in the sense of being an “adult”) when I was 21, I’d’ve said “Of course”. If you denied that I was a “man”/adult, I might’ve beat the crap out of you.
But, in retrospect, I now see that I was only a large, semi-dangerous child masquerading as a “man”/adult. In fact, I’m not convinced that I truly became a “man”/adult until I was at least 50 and probably 60. Being a man/adult is not about age or size or physical power–it’s about values, courage, integrity and even genuine spirituality.
It’s a shame that I come to understand what being a man/adult means when my mind and body are no longer in their prime. (That’s just another way of saying “If I knew then, what I know now.”) But even so, I’m pleased to have reached the point where I regard myself as truly a “man”/adult. Lots of people never really achieve that understanding.
And virtually all of you who are under 50 aren’t really “adults”. I know that assertion will make some of you want to take a poke at me. But most of those under 50 are really just large, potentially dangerous children acting like adults, but secretly scared (a little or a lot) by the incomprehensibility of your society.
On the bright side, I expect that the Good LORD also has a hard time distinguishing our ages. I suspect that even a 90-year old man must look like a child to our Father YHWH ha Elohiym.
And, of course, that 90-year old man probably sees me (I’ll be 70 next year) as a child. That pleases me. Somewhere, there’s somebody even older than me who’s grumbling about that “Adask kid”. Makes me laugh.
But none of that changes my fundamental notion that we live in a world that is so unnatural, that natural measures of being a “man” or an “adult” are no longer meaningful. I don’t expect anyone who’s currently in their 40s to admit that they’re still “children”. But if they live to be 70 and look back, they might be shocked to see that they were once just 40-year old “kids”. And then 50-year old “kids” and one day, even 60-year old “kids”.
We all want to think that we’re big, strong and wise adults. Or we at least want to fool everyone else into think that we’re big, strong, wise adults. I doubt that even 1% of us ever truly reach that status.
Want some “adult” wisdom? I’ll give you some: It’s all bullshit, except service to God.

Al, that’s a well written reply to what was, ironically, an obnoxiously juvenile comment.
I would have simply banned the twit and been done with it. Your response was better.

Except for our uh…”theological” differences, I agree to a great extent. I am 57 and It wasn’t until I was over 50 that I had actually seen enough for me to understand some things.
I WAS a REALLY screwed up kid. As an adult in my 20s and 30s I was also really screwed up. My aunt really DID kill my grandmother. My birth family really DOES hate me. Etc. etc. etc.
Actually, I was just making a joke, popping a funny. You ran with it and added some interesting insights. However, when I watch what those young women do in this video, I am certain that they are adults. I have NO difficulty in discerning this.
FWIW: When I met you in Dallas in CLR a long time ago, I had NO idea you had travelled much of the world. Thanks for, 20 some odd years later, for bringing me up to speed on that.

So women, or People that express their emotions thru music, & or artistic ways is Satan. If you truly believe in Satan, would not agree that God allows Satan to be. This is something that is showing up just like when People were allowed to dance, or sing after being shunned for so long in the middle ages my friends. Book burning is happening now thru the Pharmecetucials buying up Museums that house great books from the 18 century. Please use your scientific mind Alfred. That for the most part will get you wins in the market place, & court rooms. I still admire your work!!!

What we have here, is failure to communicate. Either you aren’t understanding me, or I’m not understanding you.
My implicit argument behind the article and attached video is not that the women or music in the video are somehow Satanic. My argument is that they are lively, funny, intelligent and talented and they offer a glimpse of what our lives might be–except that we are all subject to a national and/or global government that is ruled by Satanists and psychopaths whose fundamental objective is to subject such talented, intelligent, funny and lively women–and men–and children–to the gov-co’s control, inhibition and shortened life expectancy.

I understand now. My brain is confused at times due to some health problems that i am endeavoring to overcome. I did not mean to insult you. I have written to you for many years now time to time. My apologies !! I approve like wise of your message!

I realize this is late to comment. Have just read the responses after watching the performance. This seems to be such a truly meaningful and true discussion of valuable value issues for the culture and world we live in today. Your long comment, Mr. Adask, was especially good and insightful, loved it. Pleasurable reading, I believe, because the truth just feels good. Cathy
