PAUL HARVEYS IF I WERE THE DEVIL TRANSCRIPT:
If I were the devil If I were the Prince of Darkness, Id want to engulf the whole world in darkness. And Id have a third of its real estate, and four-fifths of its population, but I wouldnt be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree Thee. So Id set about however necessary to take over the United States. Id subvert the churches first Id begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: Do as you please.

To the young, I would whisper that The Bible is a myth. I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that whats bad is good, and whats good is square. And the old, I would teach to pray, after me, Our Father, which art in Washington

And then Id get organized. Id educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. Id threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. Id pedal narcotics to whom I could. Id sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. Id tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the devil Id soon have families that war with themselves, churches at war with themselves, and nations at war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings Id have mesmerizing media fanning the flames. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions just let those run wild, until before you knew it, youd have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

Within a decade Id have prisons overflowing, Id have judges promoting pornography soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil Id make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

If I were the devil Id take from those who have, and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And what do you bet? I couldnt get whole states to promote gambling as thee way to get rich? I would caution against extremes and hard work, in Patriotism, in moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that what you see on TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were the devil Id just keep right on doing on what hes doing. Paul Harvey, good day.
