THEY know what's best for you. Listen to THEM because THEY know best.

~ Lies! ~

Don't listen to their lies. YOU are quite smart enough to invent your own lies.

Beware of THEM.
Just remember you don't have to listen to THEM, you are a pope) - A ~POPE~ is someone who is not under the authority of the authorities.

Be alert for THEM, be THEY big or be THEY small. THEY are anyone who tells you that they know best, anyone who wants you to do what THEY tell you. Including Mum, Your School, The Government, ALL religions (including discordianism), the government and greenpeace (eco-socoieties and the like have as strong an opinion on how you should behave as any of THEM) - Fanatics are part of THEM, too y'know.

Here's what the Principia Discordia has to say about them:


Gen. Pandaemonium, Commanding

The seeds of the ORDERS OF DISCORDIA were planted by Greyface into his early disciples. They form the skeleton of the Aneristic Movement, which over emphasizes the Principle of Order and is antagonistic to the necessary compliment, the Principle of Disorder. The Orders are composed of persons all hung up on authority, security and control; i.e., they are blinded by the Aneristic Illusion. They do not know that they belong to Orders of Discordia. But we know.

  1. The Military Order of THE KNIGHTS OF THE FIVE SIDED TEMPLE. This is for all the soldiers and bureaucrats of the world.

  2. The Political Order of THE PARTY FOR WAR ON EVIL. This is reserved for lawmakers, censors, and like ilk.

  3. The Academic Order of THE HEMLOCK FELLOWSHIP. They commonly inhabit schools and universities, and dominate many of them.

  4. The Social Order of THE CITIZENS COMMITTEE FOR CONCERNED CITIZENS. This is mostly a grass-roots version of the more professional military, political, academic and sacred Orders.

  5. The Sacred Order of THE DEFAMATION LEAGUE. Not much is known about the D.L., but they are very ancient and quite possibly were founded by Greyface himself. It is known that they now have absolute domination over all organized churches in the world. It is also believed that they have been costuming cabbages and passing them off as human beings.

    A person belonging to one or more Order is just as likely to carry a flag of the counter-establishment as the flag of the establishment-- just as long as it is a flag.

    Don't let THEM immanentize the Eschaton.

                                permission from the Principia Discordia

    A cautionary note - don't reject out of hand everything THEY tell you to do. For example the goverernment says DRIVE ON THE LEFT and DON'T KILL PEOPLE. If I had a car I would drive on the left, not because I have to, but because that's the sensible thing to do (If you don't want to be a bit dead). I don't kill people partly because I don't want to get caught and partly because I don't want to live with the guilt, but mostly because I'm just to lazy.

    Of course THEY tell you not to take drugs - now you'll have to decide that kinda one for yourself, won't you?
