Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Practical philosophy

You know, in this day and age the term philosopher is disparaged. There are a bunch of academics debating the works of people long dead, trying to stretch writings and sayings to fit their own worldview. They argue over punctuation and the implication of what was not said in which edition. Most of the people called philosophers today are little better than research librarians. They don't think about the practical application, you see.

You don't know

You don't know where I get my news. When it comes to occult information, your "sources" and eyewitnesses and "primary documents" don't know squat. I've been on the shadow borders for twenty-nine years. I've a whole slew of contacts representing more faiths and paths than you can shake three wands and an athamé at. I've done research as a practitioner, a historian, a philosopher, and a scholar of comparative religion. You can't cloak your wanna-be claims from me. I've been to the places you fear and I've walked the paths beyond your longing.

And that, neighbor, is how you do it right. You can't do it without truth and experience.
