What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.  — Albert Pine

Familial - From the Latin familia, meaning a household and its coherent bonds.

Gabriel versus Lucifer is a novel interpretation of the Luciferian influence on our world. It is presented here as an exercise, to aid in the development of critical thinking as well as spiritual discernment.

Lucifer described his manifesto as a "declaration of liberty" and a call to 'liberty-loving, free-thinking, and forward-looking intelligences." One prosecutor in the context of a trial presents a closing line of argument wherein he maintains much of what now passes for social progressivism, is in fact retrograde motion, degenerate in the context of societal evolution.

The prosecutor attempts to differentiate between the exercise of true liberty and taking license. He contrasts the righteous cause of early social progressives, that secured voting rights for women and people of color, with that of a chaotic movement, simply going along to get along in ways that defy definition.

He asks those inclined to characterize themselves as "conservative," to describe exactly what they intend to conserve. And he longs for the days when opposition research meant more than simply getting the dirt on your political opponent. It once stood for knowing what motivates an adversary. It was agility in discourse personified, and the innate ability to articulate an opponent's position as well as one's own.
