Example text

Butter, 1982, pxiii of 267). As we have seen, Blake dared to plumb the depths of the human condition. The truth is that almost all humans have had to employ immense mental block-out from, and thus separation or split-off or alienation from, the truth of their corrupted state. The human condition is, to re-quote Kierkegaard, ‘something’ a human ‘doesn’t even dare strike up acquaintance with’. This deepest of issues of the human condition has been an anathema to most people. They have had the attitude of Albert the alligator in the old Pogo comic strip: ‘The inner me?

Such men will be punished most severely’ (Luke 20:46). Delusion/ alienation/ denial will not be ‘punished’ with the arrival of the understanding of the human condition, but it will be made visible and will thankfully become unnecessary in human life. 61 Print Ed 43 Adult humans are so deluded, so unaware of being alienated, that while reading about the deaf effect they very often think that, while it may be true of some people, it does not apply to them and that they are quite capable of taking in any analysis or argument.

This people’s heart has become calloused [alienated]; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes’. When people begin reading direct description and analysis of the human condition the reality is that they ‘hear’ very little. The mind is literally in shock at hearing the subject even admitted, let alone talked about and talked about so openly and freely. The mind quickly brings up the blocks it has needed to protect itself from the condemning and thus depressing implications that thinking about the human condition has led to in the past.
