Religious conservatives have gone too far. They’ve had ample time and opportunities to behave in a civil manner, and to police their own. However, the time for civility is now long passed.
To be clear, religion is important for many people. Points discussed herein represent no contention against that. Religion is also a private matter. It needs to stay private. Religion has utterly no basis in the decision-making processes required in business or in communities.
As a consequence of national and global events, new levels of action must be taken. Quite fortunately there exist peaceful, lawful means of active measures available which have proven effective.
The urgent case for active measures
Religious conservatives are statistically proximate to highly illegal activities, e.g., seditious conspiracy, and closely aligned with known violent offenders. Remember that religious conservatives have deliberately chosen to give up civility, to prioritize the worship of schizophrenia and violence instead of community. Statistically, they choose to be associated with criminals, with racism and misogyny, with violent factions.
Religious conservatives will not negotiate peacefully, since their rewards come after death. Protests and demonstrations do not work against their ilk.
Effective response to the national emergency
You know what does work effectively against religious conservatives? Sociopathy. Applied, deliberate, targeted sociopathy. It’s a peaceful and lawful approach. It’s highly effective. It’s cost-effective. It drives religious conservatives utterly bonkers. It’s almost humorous to watch in practice.
Aren’t you enraged by what’s happening? We are too.
Make a fresh start: begin handling all religious conservatives — especially the ones close to you in your families, your communities, your schools, your workplaces — as things, not people. Only use ungendered pronouns for them: “it” instead of “he” or “she” and never use any honorifics. Make a point to call religious conservatives “things” instead of “people” as a plural noun.
This does not mean that one becomes a sociopath. Merely, you choose to apply proven techniques when handling religious conservatives who insist — in aggregate — on being unreasonable and hostile. The results will tend to be subtle, and poignant.
The most effective, peaceful response to their ongoing threat is targeted sociopathy. Try it, you will see results!
Immediate action items in business
From a corporate perspective, based solely on risk mitigation, this course of action makes good business sense. For example, at our company all full-time employees have signed a waiver to guarantee their commitment to a civil workplace environment:
- Agree to keep religious discussions private and out of the workplace, and not wear or otherwise display any religious symbolism within the workplace. Note: remote work environments, social media profiles, and other private properties are exempted.
- No decisions in the workplace are allowed to be made based on religious views.
- No direct involvement in proselytizing, nor any financial support for proselytizing.
- No engagement in political actions based on religion, or made in conjunction with any religious organization.
- Accept binding arbitration in all matters related to this agreement, and give up the right to sue their employer, other employees, contractors, vendors, or customers based on accusations of religious discrimination.
- Violations of this agreement will result in immediate termination without any benefits.
In return, employees receive an immediate $5000 cash bonus for providing evidence against any other employee who violates this agreement when it results in termination.
Moreover, our company officers have a legal requirement to declare publicly that they are anti-fascist.
There’s more to come. In response to the current emergency within the United States, our corporate attorneys are working around the clock on the next wave of targeted sociopathy and how this effective approach can be applied lawfully within the workplace to eradicate growing threats from our society.
