Teflon Tristan beams at you, smiling with the pride of superiority. He has just pulled off a magic trick. You have been fooled. You want to know how it worked, but you are not allowed to ask.
Pick a scene, any scene: you will not become wiser in any case. Your wishes and desires, aspirations and fantasies will disappear into thin air without even the slightest trace of smoke, no sight of mirrors, … you are left behind with your brain completely caught up in a maze of strings, knotted up, utterly incompetent to unravel even the hint of a solution.
There is none. Nothing on the stage. Everything is empty. You are lost. It is far easier to believe in magic than to doubt what you just saw.
Tristan is good – he cannot be evil, because he is the hero of this story. He wants to save you and all of humanity. He has a plan, and all you need to do is to follow him: „Together, we can end the misery“ he says.
There you sit, in the audience, as the last echoes of his amplified voice disperse into the farthest corners of the auditorium. Everywhere the crowd around you lifts their voices, lifts their arms and raises the roof with such an overwhelming applause that you cannot resist in partaking in the undulating movements the mob sweeps you away in.
Our savior! Tell us what to do! We will obey!

Often listed under “Sexist Ads of the Past,” this 1930s Kellogg’s PEP cereal advertisement sure does speak about time in which it was created. In 1938, the Kellogg’s Company introduced several new innovations including Kellogg’s PEP cereal. According to Kellogg’s, PEP was the “first cereal fortified with vitamins B and D through the ‘spray’ method, marking the beginning of the cereal industry’s food fortification processes.”http://www.historybyzim.com/2013/07/odd-ads-of-the-past-pep-vitamins

On occasion people have told us they would like us to join their group, because we must be lonely, being a couple all by ourselves. Gosh, that is the point — we are a couple and want to spend our time together alone. If we want to socialize, we will do so on our own terms, when we want, with our own friends and family.http://popupbackpacker.com/backpacking-camping-and-herd-mentality

Tangueros ask me whether tango will survive COVID. It has survived despite ruthless dictators, rock-n-roll, and capitalism. We will dance again.https://thelearningcurve.life/2020/05/31/tango-is-more-than-the-embrace

Welcome to Theological Thursday. I don’t want these articles to be longer than necessary so I’ll bypass the unnecessary introduction and jump right into some theology.
