"This superiority syndrome has become a common disease," I interjected. "We find it everywhere, not just in religion. Hitler was a perfect example as the world's Number One racial superiority freak, as was Thomas de Torquemada of the Spanish Inquisition, and so on, all the way back to Aristotle who hailed the slave masters as superior being over the slaves, or as did Pericles before him who hailed the Greek as superior beings, for which he launched the Peloponnesian War that raged for seventy years. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Every empire is build on the superiority disease. There world be no empire that rapes and pillages other people without it, from the Roman Empire and those before it, to the British Empire and the modern empire without a name that it has become."
"My friend's perception is," said Steve, "that when the false covenant is recognized for what it is, which isolates mankind from one-another into king-races with divine rights and slave-races with no rights, or variations thereof that are now tearing the world apart, an era of peace and prosperity will become possible on Earth, but not before then. He also cautions that the present system of mistaken religions, tragic traditions, including politics of power and empire, being built on the biological mutilation of the circumcision, are all hopelessly bankrupt to their very core so that mankind has no hope for surviving under these systems. He says that nothing offers any hope except a complete bankruptcy-type reevaluation of the failing systems. And that must include the circumcision, because the fundamental failures behind the modern tragedies all have the circumcision standing at the center of them.
"But how can we help heal the world of this tragedy?" I interjected.
"We do it by helping people to understand the nature of the trap," said Steve. "We do it by understanding the challenge it imposes, and the principles it denies. Anyone can do this Peter. And you will do this, I guarantee it. You will find yourself being guided to do the right thing by the force of necessity and by your own understanding of the process of civilization. This impetus is already included in the dimension of your being in Love with your humanity. In fact, Love itself, making its own claim, will shut the circumcision down and aid one in stepping beyond its debilitating effects, by lifting people to higher ground. The circumcision creates a low-level blockage. Many people have found that by consciously stepping above it to higher ground one can become free again. Love for God and man, that is being in Love with our common humanity, will close the door to the mutilating of ourselves and others, and to the resulting effects. Love won't allow anything that mutilates one, or what would impose mutilation on others. I would even say that what Love degrees in this respect is also essential in economics. Everything about it relates to the principle of economics. That is why the world is starving in the arms of the circumcision, but it is possible to open a door and get out of this trap."
