Do UUA Bureaucrats Rev. Dr. Tracey Robinson-Harris and Rev. Beth Miller Enjoy Appearing Inept? Just asking. . .

"Bureaucracy destroys initiative. There is little that bureaucrats hate more than innovation, especially innovation that produces better results than the old routines. Improvements always make those at the top of the heap look inept. Who enjoys appearing inept?"

Toure Bomoko Kicks Self-Satisfied aka Smug U*U Butt. . .

Religion must remain an outlet for people who say to themselves,

"I am not the kind of person I want to be."

It must never sink into an assemblage of the self-satisfied.

Last words of Toure Bomoko, in "Appendix II: The Religion of DU*UNE"

Does The Kris Knife Of Sweet Reason Have A Strong Sense Of The Sardonic?

The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.

Muad'Dib Teaches U*Unitarians A Lesson Or Two. . .

Muad'Dib learned rapidly because his first training was in how to learn. And the first lesson of all was the basic trust that he could learn. It's shocking to find how many people do not believe they can learn, and how many more believe learning to be difficult. Muad'Dib knew that every experience carries its lesson.

DU*UNE Quotation #1

To attempt an understanding of The Kris Knife Of Sweet Reason without understanding his mortal enemies, the U*Unitarians, is to attempt seeing Truth without knowing Falsehood. It is the attempt to see the Light without knowing Darkness. It cannot be.
