MooPig Anthology and Stuff Department :: "Cargo Cults"

Are We all really a Herd of Sheeple?

MooPig Anthology and Stuff Department had been reading about "Cargo Cults," when this article stuck out from the rest. The article is irreverent of indigenous people who practice one or another cults. The reason for the contempt is that it implies that all of us earth dwellers subject ourselves to believing in "higher power" cults that turn out to be simply "advanced technology."

Read the Article HERE:

Cargo Cults - Humans Will Believe Anything | Sick Chirpse: "So how does a feeble human brain readjust to fit in all of this new and unexpected shizzle? Well, simply put, it’s all assigned to a higher power – The ultimate solution for confusion in the uneducated human. The inhabitants decided to try and get back to the glory days by inventing odd cults and new rituals. Some of these Cargo Cults still remain to this day, including one in Tanna (a remote island) where more than half a century on, they continue with their unsuccessful rituals. They try their best to mimic the soldier’s activities in a hope that they too can summon the same wealth and technology that those mystical foreigners had managed to steal." (Lazer Horse. June 18.

The article suggests that these kinds of cult followings can be eradicated through education. MooPig Wisdom thinks that cults will never be eradicated. Sure, one can read about traits and practices of people and become wise to a cult, which is what anthology is all about, but humans apparently need something to believe in. So no matter what kind of "tosh" is removed from belief systems, another whole set of rituals are borne to make a new belief system with a cult following.

Following a belief with rituals and such is said most often to "fill a void" in the heart of the follower. And your Lords and Masters are counting on all of us falling for the latest cults.
