Our Israeli correspondent MC returns with a meditation on Socialism, Atheism, Judaeo-Christianity, and the various theological and philosophical currents that created the behavioral sink known as Modernity.
And BHO? What of him? That is in our hands…
As I read about the John Doe raids in Wisconsin, I wonder at the deceit that we all have to live with in this day and age. The thing about Wisconsin is that a huge part of society sees these raids as necessary to control the ‘racism’ of conservatives. Because conservatives are ‘racist’, National Socialism may once more become popular.
We, as a society, have been inveigled into accepting this mantra as god’s own truth.
But whose god?
The answer here is, of course, any god but Yahweh, the Judeo-Christian God. But specifically the socialist god, i.e. man; but only in a very specific form. Not just any man will do, this man must firstly be male (feminism has no traction in these elevated humanist circles; it is a divisive dogma useful only to destroy the Judeo-Christian family) and well-connected, preferably from a known bloodline. He must have been privately educated and have the hereditary entry into the right circles. Alternatively, he must be stinking rich.
There is no altruism in this group. It is totally self-absorbed, but uses the illusion of ‘goodness and mercy’ to ensnare support by sending deceitful ‘virtue signals’ to those who have a passionate need to be seen to do and be ‘good’ (Lenin’s useful idiots). This group also pays its henchmen well, and it is these henchmen that the general public sees: smiling faces and benign words hiding ruthless ambitions and intentions. These are the guys that press the buttons of the human mincing machines.
At this time we are considering the various holocausts and genocides of modern history. These mass-murder events have changed our psyche; they have provided a backdrop to our notions of civilization. Many, many people are now atheists because of the question “how could god allow this to happen?”.
Again the question arises, which god? Man has free will, and the bible tells us that in the Garden of Eden he, too, became a god.
Islam holds up a man, Mahomet, as perfection. He is a god in all but name. Communism and Nazism are intrinsically humanist, and between these cults can be spread the nearly the entirety of mass murder in the 20th century.
Yet it is these same ‘man’ cults which are increasingly dictating to us the terms of our daily lives. The rise of television has placed many millions of people who would not normally succumb to coercion propaganda in the direct firing line of subliminal lies. With a tame television empire, one no longer needs brown/black/red/green shirts, one just needs JR or Teletubbies. Peppa Pig’s father is an incompetent imbecile. TV gives us the inverted stereotype, moulded by our betters to fool us into thinking that such characters are the reality from cradle to grave and back.
So Islam becomes a religion of ‘peace’, Communism is ‘benign’ and ‘RIGHTist’ Nazism is the most dangerous force on the planet. Muslims are wise and friendly, Communists are intellectuals and conservatives are nasty ‘racists’ who only think about money and the economy.
So we have a picture language, carefully built over time, with the objective of reducing us to a willing and submissive slavery, incapable of any meaningful political thought or analysis.
One may think, and indeed one is taught to think, but only within the bounds set by one’s betters. Go to a modern University and have one’s talents moulded in the image of the acceptable. Real science means that we question everything, but in reality, science is bought and paid for by the same elites that rule everything else, and if one wants to be a scientist then conformity is a prerequisite.
Television has created an age of conformity, and defines the bounds of that conformity. And television is owned by the elites.
Judeo-Christianity, and the idea of ‘do as you would be done by” works. There was a time when Jewish (and here I mean those who kept the tenets of Judaism) bankers were the epitome of honesty, and, because their system of trade credits was trustworthy, foreign trade was able to take place ; so the West, and the Judeo-Christian culture flourished through trade and innovation, but also through faith and trust.
With the bible also came the idea of one law for all; Greek, Jew, bond, free, male, female, rich or poor. But as the influence of Judeo-Christianity has waned, so these ideas are falling into disuse and are neglected. The Jewish bankers are no longer adherents of the Ten Commandments. They have aligned with the relativism of the Rockefellers and the accommodations of the Carnegies, and the world has suffers for it.
Communism built on the Darwinian proposition of an alternative to Yahweh, and the concept of the survival of the fittest, to attack the roots of Judeo-Christianity with a ‘new’ morality which is actually a very, very old morality. In it a small, supposedly intellectual elite define what is right and what is wrong for everybody else. ‘Pharisees’, one might call them. Karl Marx wrote the Communist manifesto as a commission from the ‘League of the Just’ and the ‘Communist League’. Both of these were middle-class organisations that wanted to control ‘the workers’ to gain power (and exclusivity) for themselves. They were wannabe Kings and Emperors.
Marx also wrote this:
The Fiddler saws the strings,
His light brown hair he tosses and flings.
He carries a sabre at his side,
He wears a pleated habit wide.
“Fiddler, why that frantic sound?
Why do you gaze so wildly round?
Why leaps your blood, like the surging sea?
What drives your bow so desperately?”
“Why do I fiddle? Or the wild waves roar?
That they might pound the rocky shore,
That eye be blinded, that bosom swell,
That Soul’s cry carry down to Hell.”
“Fiddler, with scorn you rend your heart.
A radiant God lent you your art,
To dazzle with waves of melody,
To soar to the star-dance in the sky.”
“How so! I plunge, plunge without fail
My blood-black sabre into your soul.
That art God neither wants nor wists,
It leaps to the brain from Hell’s black mists.
“Till heart’s bewitched, till senses reel:
With Satan I have struck my deal.
He chalks the signs, beats time for me,
I play the death march fast and free.”
Invocation of One in Despair
So a god has snatched from me my all
In the curse and rack of Destiny.
All his worlds are gone beyond recall!
Nothing but revenge is left to me!
On myself revenge I’ll proudly wreak,
On that being, that enthroned Lord,
Make my strength a patchwork of what’s weak,
Leave my better self without reward!
I shall build my throne high overhead,
Cold, tremendous shall its summit be.
For its bulwark — superstitious dread,
For its Marshall — blackest agony.
Who looks on it with a healthy eye,
Shall turn back, struck deathly pale and dumb;
Clutched by blind and chill Mortality
May his happiness prepare its tomb.
And the Almighty’s lightning shall rebound
From that massive iron giant.
If he bring my walls and towers down,
Eternity shall raise them up, defiant.
And defiance? Defy he did; it can be seen from his poetry, which is more likely to portray the true Marx, whose philosophy was not at all Atheist, but was, if anything, pro-Satan and anti-God.
Marx thought that he wrote about capitalism, but he really wrote about cartelism; what happens when elites gain control. In capitalism, competition creates a reasonably level playing field, in cartelism, the field is mountainous and treacherous. Ironically, Communism is the ultimate in cartelism.
So we must decide: Is the world a better place now that Communism and Socialism are replacing Judeo-Christianity? I suspect that many of those who actually understand what is going on here do not think so. The delicate fabric of civilization is falling apart. There are acts of war in our towns and cities, and there are ‘rumours’ of wars* daily (TV broadcasts would be unimaginable by the writers in the 1st century; rumours, that is ‘news’ in the 1st-century context, transmitted at the speed of light, outrageous).
Socialism brings with it a lot of pre-Christian baggage. It is not new; it is, in reality, it is a mechanism whereby those with some intellect can deceive the hoi polloi into paying for their (the socialist elites’) good life, in the (vain) hope that some of the spoils will come their (the peasants’) way.
Unfortunately, the early church eventually also picked up this same philosophy, simply moving the ‘payback’ to the heavenly realms, it is an interesting exercise to compare what we read about in the Book of Acts with what Christianity became over the next 2000 years. There are no church buildings in Acts, and no exclusive priesthood, no bible colleges and no New Testament. That came later; at the time only the Torah, the ‘Writings’ and the Prophets which comprise the Old Testament, were available.
Civilisation happened when the Protestant Reformation took Judeo-Christianity back to the bible, and particularly the Torah (Ten Commandments), and Western Europe took a leap forwards. Then in the 1760s King George thought he could inflict socialism (feudalism) on the American colonialists. He failed.
And Barack Hussein Obama? What of him?
That is in our hands…
