Ponerology = the study of evil (according to the author cited below).
The origin of evil!
Some time in 1995, one Laura Jadczyk (from Alberta, Canada) releases the following book on the Internet: "Political Ponerology (the Genesis of Evil)"
by one Andrew Lobaczewski. Several years down the line, Zeke stumbles
upon it in his own online research. Shelves it in a corner of his mind.
Then, comes upon it again, today. And is STRUCK by the relevance of the
statements contained therein, as regards his revelations of the Zodiac
Cult. Such as this passage:
The ultimate cause of evil lies
in the interaction of two human factors: 1) normal human ignorance and
weakness and 2) the existence and action of a statistically small (4-8%
of the general population) but extremely active group of

Some chapters are available to read online, otherwise you'll need to
buy the book. Which I DON'T recommend, as it's rare and thus,
expensive. Best price offered through Amazon.com: $35 plus shipping.
Next best price: $80! We're just talking PAPERBACK here, yow-ee!
The book may ultimately be a ruse, but does seem to contain SOME
valuable pearls of insight. I think because wisdom has a way of
manifesting whenever need be, regardless of the compost in which its
seed was planted. Think also: "sense of humor" in the vast, universal
scheme of all things. I will return to this ponerology site this eve,
to gather all wisdom I can, like a fisherman casting his net.
But is too cheap to cough up the permit fee.
