Do you think that this excerpt applies to todays world?

This is an excerpt from a piece written by William Walker Atkinson entitled 'Thought Vibration' in 1906.

'We are finding no fault with those who are swayed by their lower selves - they are in a lower grade of evolution,

and will work up in time. But we are calling the attention of those who are ready, to the fact that the Sovereign

must assert his will, and that the subjects must obey. Orders must be given and carried out. Rebellion must be put

down, and the rightful authority insisted upon. And the time to do it is Now.

You have been allowing your rebellious subjects to keep the King from his throne. You have been allowing

the mental kingdom to be misgoverned by irresponsible faculties. You have been the slaves of Appetite,

Unworthy Thoughts, Passion and Negativeness. The Will has been set aside and Low Desire has usurped the throne.

It is time to re-establish order in the mental kingdom. You are able to assert the mastery over any emotion, appetite, passion or class of thoughts by the assertion of the Will''

    It's ignorant, pseudo-poetic babble that was less than philosophically or scientifically supportable back then, either!

    Even with all the caps!

    It is drowning in dualistic ego!

    Nothing new there!
