“If a man would persist in his folly, he would become wise”
– William Blake
It takes a hell of a lot to overcome society’s indoctrination; which is akin to climbing out of a bucket of slime. Once you finally make your way to the rim of the bucket, be careful who you reach down to help up, lest they drag you back down into the slime. This is why the Left Hand Path is a lonely one. We have all been burned by those who proclaim to be something they are not; clever sheep and wolves in sheep’s clothing. The only solution is to take a lesson from the mountain goat who independently climbs to the highest peaks, and focus on our own ascension.
