Influencing the Dominant Paradigm

This morning on the CBS Sunday Morning show, they ended with a retrospective of all the famous people who died in 2007. They ended with Robert Goulet singing “Never would I leave you” (from Camelot) while saying things implying that the Mighty Dead would still be with us in the future. Then they ended the sequence, the show, and their broadcast year with these words on the screen: “Hail and Farewell”.

For non-Wiccan readers, “Hail and farewell” are the words with which Orthodox Wiccans (and others) end their rituals. Yes, the phrase is old (going back to Latin) but it is almost never heard except in Wiccan (and possibly Masonic) rituals today.

We’re not having any effect on the dominant paradigm at all, oh no…
