The latest guest-essay by our Israeli correspondent MC concerns the metaphysics of political and religious hatred.
It is very difficult for those of us whose emotions are in control to understand the passion behind religious and political hatred — until, that is, the knock comes on the door at three o’clock in the morning.
Passion that can mobilize a people to genocide, passion that can move grown men to slaughter women and children as if they were just animals. A passion that can grip us all, given the right stimulus.
Passion that shrouds rational thought and hides the conscience that should be a guide to rational behaviour.
What is this murderous passion that we must, as individuals, now confront in our daily lives? Why do my fellow men , by virtue (or otherwise) of their inward emotion, seek to control me, and bend me towards their passionate beliefs or maybe just physically bend me until I break?
Religious and political passion is like a disease that invades the body and changes the basic fundamental instincts of humanity. It appears to animalise its victims to the point where they become like leashed attack dogs, just waiting for the order from above to unbridle their fury on those perceived to be ‘guilty’ and those who just happen to get in their way.
Some of these creatures are born hating, others have hatred thrust upon them. They have been enslaved by hatred because of various forms of nurture, usually malign. Today we are assailed by two malevolent sources of malignant nurture working in concert with each other, with maybe a third, even more malignant force pulling the strings. I am not a physicalist, so I am going to name this third force ‘the Spirit of Janus’.
Janus is the two-faced god of opposites, and symbolises a force of moral relativity in all things. He represents the liquidation of ‘good’ and ‘evil’ into a cup of good cheer. In essence, as long as the motive is good, then the means used to get there must also be ‘good’, and the cost is of little consideration; people are like pennies, there to be spent for the relief of the ‘great’ and the ‘good’.
Hitler thought he was doing the world a favour by ridding it of untermenschen. Muslims are doing us a good turn by introducing Allah into our consciousness. Communists are teaching us to live and sing together in perfect harmony, little understanding that their form of cola does not suit all tastes.
“Oh dear”, they twitter, “how can people prefer the other brand? Are they insane?”
Then comes the struggle for herd immunity. If everybody has the vaccination — the fear of the 3 am knock on the door — then the disease is eventually wiped out. Isn’t it is obvious to all sane people? After all, the science is settled, blah, blah, blah…
Nazism is about world conquest, Communism does not work well until everyone is transformed, and the perfect ‘peace’ of Islam (submission) requires the entire world to bend the knee to allah and his bandit prophet.
So loose the dogs of war, and let the lord of chaos rule!
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
And wrestle we must. We are the resistance movement in an occupied world, Yes, the enemy came in through the Ardennes and took us in the rear. We were looking for tanks and bayonets on the Maginot line, but the enemy snuck around the back, and infiltrated our supply train, our lifeline to civilization. Fear not, however, for all this is already mapped out for us in those dreadful Judeo-Christian scriptures — yes, those, the ones Janus doesn’t want you to read, the ones with the happy ending.
But isolated we are. We grumble and grouch and write articles on Counterjihad sites. We are starved of resources. There are no Gateses or Soroi in our neck of the woods. Like Van Gogh, we paint our words in poverty hoping for a starry night, but in essence wilting like an ageing sunflower.
For us, the ends do not justify the means. We hold fast to truth and put on our spiritual armour. If we take up our sword, then it is the sword of the words of our faith.
It is difficult to wrestle when your opponent is covered in slime. It is hard to get a grip, and worse, the slime rubs off and one must stop and take a shower to avoid contagion.
The nations of the civilised world have one thing in common: the Judeo-Christian ethic. Moreover, those nations that developed advanced cultures did so under the influence of Protestant Christianity. Is this a possible light in the darkness of our lives?
Unfortunately it is a taboo subject. Indeed, some of the slime has rubbed off. The dissenters in our midst must not be offended either.
What I really need to do is to take a page out of the enemy’s book, to get the dogs of Islam fighting the thugs of cultural Marxism. The best form of defence is to divide and rule (if I may be permitted a mixed metaphor or two).
It is obvious that at some stage there is going to be a conflict between the forces of socialism and the forces of Islam, there is not enough room on the planet for either, let alone both. It should therefore be fairly easy to breed suspicion between them simply by showing them the truth; that they are really in competition, not accord. The fundamental fact is that they are both agents of chaos and conflict and are diametrically opposed.
Whilst Islam does not compromise, it does make temporary accommodations — in this case with the paganity of socialism. Socialism has always been riven by corruption and self-interest, and thus is very vulnerable to Middle Eastern wealth.
The best antidote to the poison of propaganda is truth. The truth is that Islam is a ‘religion’ of hate, and socialism is a politics of hate. The two are united in a common hatred of Judeo-Christianity and its beneficial influence on all societies with which it has come in contact. Socialism always fails because it is not so much a positive expression of caring and sharing, but is more a negative expression of resentment against all things emanating from Judea two millennia ago. Islam is also in direct competition with the same ancient events.
The holocaust of Jews is ongoing; the seconds are out for round 2. The holocaust of Christians is in second gear and accelerating, with the established churches as willing passengers: for them, the glowing radiance of socialism and revolutionary theology blinds them to the plight of Christians in those ‘small’ nations far away.
Hate: a mouth full of fangs, drooling with venomous saliva, fronting a malevolence beyond the restraint of reason, but directed from above against a successful and benign society, bent on its total eradication. Thus Janus betrays his glee with a two-faced satanic grin. A grin labelled ‘hope’ and a grin labelled ‘change’. Thus rules the Lord of Chaos.
Love: When that which is perfect is come, that which is in part will pass away, for now we see as through a glass darkly, then all things will be clear. Hope, faith and love, these three remain, so seek the love.
