HATONN: Somehow sheep-people have gotten this screwy notion that their Master is supposed to pamper and protect them; that he will do FOR them, instead of merely helping them to do for themselves; that all they have to do is gaze upon Him with soft, adoring sheep-eyes, everything will be hunky-dorry.
But he screams at them (for all the good it does): “You’ve got to think for yourselves! You’ve got to be clever…..as clever as the vipers that torment you!” He’s been screaming the same thing for over 2,000 years.
Finally, one little sheep-person, awake with a touch of insomnia, heard the Master’s Voice. Dutifully, he tried to learn the ways of serpents–how their malicious little minds worked–so he could duplicate their cleverness as he was commanded to do. Whether of courage or folly, he infiltrated the ranks of the serpents, covered in ill-fitting costume to conceal his true identity. He studied their lore, measured their culture, and joined in their games. Imagine his surprise on discovering that the snakes were not literal snakes, but were serpent-people; Khazars by ancestry who, over the centuries had come to call themselves “Jews”.
