Do you believe in symbols? The devil? 666 as the devil’s number?
Even atheists have to admit that there is evil in the world. Men and women who lie, manipulate, and cheat without any sense of conscience. Guilt for them doesn’t exist, only anger and frustration when their ploy fails.
How ironic that Jared Kushner bought the 666 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan NY, skyscraper. He paid twice what anyone else ever paid for Manhattan real estate (1.8 billion dollars) and has a 1.4 billion dollar loan. Then the real estate market crashed and he was left with a big problem. To solve the problem he needed to use the airspace above and add 40 stories. What’s another 6 billion give or take a few bucks? So he followed the money to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Russia and who knows where else. Oh no, poor Jared. They weren’t and aren’t interested.
But wait, someone is very interested, Robert Mueller. He also wants to follow the money. Your money! And, he wants to know what you also promised them? The Brooklyn Bridge? The new LA subway? A part-share in Air Force 1?
So religious or not, 666 may not be the devil’s number, but the beginning of the fall of the apocalypse that is the Trump presidency.
I couldn’t picture “The Donald” taking the oath of office, but maybe now my imagination can watch him take the perp-walk — dressed in orange to match his hair.
Psychiatrists use fantasies all the time to help patients. They also use them to help themselves…
