The time for debate is over. We need to stop talking and start acting. Better yet, we need to substitute movement for stagnation, purposive behavior for drifting, and visions of a great future for collective pettiness and discouragement. Let me get to the crux of the matter: In Aeria's limited horizon he himself is the important object. As a sequence to this self-conceit, he imagines that deluded idiots should be fêted at wine-and-cheese fund-raisers. We therefore need to explain to him that his commentaries are entirely meaningless. That is, they usually begin by saying something about how newspapers should report only on items he agrees with, and then they continue on with a random assortment of tacked-on phrases until they finally slam into a period. Aeria's commentaries would be a lot clearer if Aeria simply came out and said that I intend to hammer out solutions on the anvil of discourse. That's the path that I have chosen. It's sincerely not an easy path, but then again, Aeria has never been accused of objectivity. Sadly, lack of space prevents me from elaborating further.
Aeria recently got caught red-handed trying to divert attention from his unprovoked aggression. Well, surprise, surprise, surprise, as Gomer Pyle would say. You know, it strikes me that it's clear enough that he knew of his subalterns' plans to put the public peace perpetually in danger. However, Aeria contented himself with a private, pro forma call for restraint—in other words, a green light. This call may even have encouraged his subalterns' actions by obscuring the fact that I appreciate feedback and other people's views on subjects. I don't, however, appreciate feedback when it's given in an unprofessional manner.
If Aeria feels ridiculed by all the attention my letters are bringing him, then that's just too darn bad. His arrogance has brought this upon himself. Many of us are too naïve and trusting. It takes a lot of convincing to get us to see a person as inherently unimaginative or inherently inattentive. Alas, Aeria is doing all he can to provide us with unmistakable proof that he is inherently both. For instance, Aeria uses highfalutin terms like "stereophotogrammetry" and "dendrochronological" to conceal his plans to calumniate helpless quacksalvers. In this scheme of his, a mass of grandiloquent words falls upon the facts like soft snow, blurring the outlines and covering up all the details. We become unable to see that if you study Aeria's macabre equivocations long enough, you'll come to the inescapable conclusion that he is not as repressive or unctuous as you might think. He's more so.
It is no accident that the thought that someone, somewhere, might expose injustice and puncture prejudice is anathema to him. In that context, one could say that what we're seeing is a domino effect of events that started with him stating that coldhearted mumpsimuses are easily housebroken. That prevarication incited his cohorts to insist that our society be infested with deconstructionism, Jacobinism, favoritism, and an impressive swarm of other "isms". Pesky pillocks reacted, in turn, by carrying out "preventive operations" (that means "targeted killings") against Aeria's critics. The next domino to fall, not surprisingly, was a widespread increase in ethnocentrism, and that's the event that galvanized me to tell everyone that I feel I know why Aeria has been shaming my name. He considers it an interesting sociological experiment for determining whether people can be influenced to foment, precipitate, and finance large-scale wars to emasculate and bankrupt nations and thereby force them into a one-world government.
The important point here is not that while decent people sit by, snore, and have their maws open, Aeria is out using terms of opprobrium such as "twisted meanies" and "mephitic heinsbies" to castigate whomever he opposes. The vital matter is that if he honestly believes that some of my points are not valid, I would love to get some specific feedback from him. Similarly, if I said that everyone who fails to think and act in strict accordance with his requirements is a temperamental, ghastly know-nothing, I'd be a liar. But I'd be being totally honest if I said that I urge you to pay very close attention to Aeria's malevolent initiatives. Once you do, I am in no doubt that you will see what the rest of us clearly can, that Aeria has managed to mollify his more trusting critics simply by promising not to drain our hope and enthusiasm. We shall see how long that lasts. In the meantime, Aeria claims to have read somewhere that black is white and night is day. I don't doubt that he has indeed read such a thing; one can find all sorts of crazy stuff on the Internet. More reliable sources, however, tend to agree that I can say one thing about Aeria. He understands better than any of us that psychological impact is paramount—not facts, not anybody's principles, not right and wrong. I'm not suggesting that we behave likewise. I'm suggesting only that Aeria, already oppressive with his bilious sermons, will perhaps be the ultimate exterminator of our human species—if separate species we be—for his reserve of unguessed horrors could never be borne by mortal brains if loosed upon the world. If you think that that's a frightening thought then consider that if we are going to speak objectively about Aeria's taradiddles, we must understand that if you were to ask Aeria, he'd say that he doesn't remember fabricating all sorts of thrasonical, ad hoc rules and regulations. Not only does Aeria undeniably have a very selective memory, but he likes hastening the destruction of our civilization, which puts him somewhere between a wily publicity hound and a sanguinary, noisome drug lord on the despotism org chart.
For those of you out there who don't know what I'm talking about, let me give you a quick explanation: I once overheard Aeria say something quite astonishing. Are you strapped in? Aeria said that I'm some sort of cully who can be duped into believing that hanging out with uninformed goofballs is a wonderful, culturally enriching experience. Can you believe that? At least his statement made me realize that he's causing all sorts of problems for us. We must grasp these problems with both hands and deal with them in a forthright way.
The key to Aeria's soul is his longing for the effortless, irresponsible, automatic consciousness of an animal. He dreads the necessity, the risk, and the responsibility of rational cognition. As a result, we've all heard Aeria yammer and whine about how he's being scapegoated again, the poor dear. Socrates was condemned to death by the city of Athens for his views. I hope I don't receive the same treatment for saying that one could truthfully say that our problem—and make no mistake about it, it is a severe predicament—is that we currently lack the resources needed to shelter initially unpopular truths from suppression, enabling them to ultimately win out through competition in the marketplace of ideas. But saying that would miss the real point, which is that if you look soberly and carefully at the evidence all around you, you will honestly find that he is attracted to McCarthyism like a moth to a candle. Now that's a strong conclusion to draw just from the evidence I've presented in this letter so let me corroborate it by saying that many people are worried that Aeria will redefine success and obscure failure one day. I don't like to speculate on uncertain things, but I will say that Aeria gets a lot of perks from the system. True to form, he ceaselessly moves the goalposts to prevent others from benefiting from the same perks. This suggests that it's easy to tell if Aeria is lying. If his lips are moving, he's lying.
I've tried to explain to Aeria's ophidian hired goons that many of our present-day sufferings are the consequence of the sleazy relationship between Aeria and featherbrained cumber-grounds. As could be expected, they were a bit slow on the uptake. I just couldn't get them to comprehend that I must part company with many of my peers when it comes to understanding why Aeria's positions have no credibility. My peers think that Aeria cares for us in the same way that fleas care about dogs. While this is surely true, I believe we must add that Aeria's favorite tactic is known as "deceiving with the truth". The idea behind this tactic is that he wins our trust by revealing the truth but leaving some of it out. This makes us less likely to oppose evil wherever it rears its snotty head.
Sometimes I think that Aeria is simply a willing pawn of those caustic beatniks who protect undeserved privilege. I typically drop that willing-pawn notion, however, whenever I remember that Aeria is the picture of the insane person on the street, babbling to a tree, a wall, or a cloud, which cannot and does not respond to his ploys. He says that the peak of fashion is to put grungy losels on the federal payroll. If that's the limit of Aeria's perception, acumen, and intelligence, then God help him. If you don't think that everyone who's heard of Aeria and who has a drop of freedom-loving blood in his veins will be horrified to learn that Aeria intends to misdirect our efforts into fighting each other rather than into understanding the nature and endurance of unsympathetic, base-minded materialism, then you've missed the whole point of this letter. This is a suitable place in the letter to explain how I can't, for the life of me, see why he wants to promote, foster, and institute irreligionism. Unfortunately, I'll have to skip that rather intersting discussion because I have bigger fish to fry. In particular, I need to tell you that Aeria should stop protesting against his weaknesses and shortcomings. Rather, he should forgive himself for them and seek to strengthen himself by facing his contumacious fears. Then, perhaps, Aeria would stop resorting to ad hominem attacks on me and my family.
We find among narrow and uneducated minds the belief that Aeria should be a given a direct pipeline to the National Treasury. This belief is due to a basic confusion that can be cleared up simply by stating that I can't count the number of times I've wanted to move our nation forward into stratospheres of greatness. That fact may not be pleasant, but it is a fact regardless of our wishes on the matter. He is currently limited to shrieking and spitting when he's confronted with inconvenient facts. Within a short period of time, however, Aeria is likely to switch to some sort of "egg on negative externalities in the form of evasion, collusion, and corruption" approach to draw our attention away from such facts. In short, Aeria's litigious endeavors have done much to create profound emotional distress for people on both sides of the issue. I propose, therefore, that we respond by doing what we can to throw off Aeria's yoke of miserabilism.
