The latest essay from our Israeli correspondent MC discusses those who would create for us a future that is the Best of Al Possible Worlds.
The perversion that is Leftism and the fellow perversion that is Islam see the world as a gap analysis between their perceived utopias and the current state of their union(s).
They see their utopia through its rose tinted spectacles, and then they look at the world around themselves. Instead of seeing a wonderful creation, they see the warts and the cancers that would not exist if their particular view of perfection was inflicted on all and sundry — that is, us, the excluded, the great unwashed crowd of peons lacking their form of enlightenment.
If they were God, they know that they could and would do a better job.
But what if creation is already perfect, and that it is man’s utopias that are the canker that causes all the unintended consequences?
We can demonstrate evolution working within a kind (a group of animals which can reproduce with each other), but in proposing that evolution can work across species is a gigantic leap in complexity. Darwin posited this leap in his famous chapter five, but unfortunately there is still a shortage of empirical evidence to support the theory, even if the theory has become a scientific paradigm.
Socialism, too, has become a similar socio-scientific paradigm in soft-science academia and beyond, and once again there is a huge leap in complexity between socialism working within a small community, and socialism working at a national and supra-national level.
Some close friends of mine are members of one of the more successful kibbutz communities here in Israel. There was a time when the kibbutz was held up as the ideal socialist community, but the difference between the kibbutz and its spectacularly unsuccessful poor relation the kolkhoz communal collective farm was selectivity. The kibbutz chose its members very, very carefully, and still does. The kolkhoz, however, had to labor under the socialist ‘equality’ myth, and was thus disastrous.
The promise of ‘utopia’ is very much a religious thing. Religion appropriates the moral high ground and removes from people the need to make (and act upon) moral decisions for themselves. Those decisions are made by a ‘religious’ elite and passed down as commandments to their adherents (the useful idiots).
This provides a very clear and concise environment within which one can signal one’s virtue.
So we have a political force calling itself a ‘religion’, and a ‘religion’ calling itself a political entity, and I don’t know which is more dangerous, but between them they are destroying the civilization we know and love, all because they are obsessed with their idea of their utopia, a utopia where I can only do only what they deem fit.
Creation is very much a mystical thing. We know it happened, but we can only speculate as to how it happened. The big bang theory and its corollary of evolution release us from a rigidity of catholic religious thinking. Jews do not switch on the lights during Sabbath because the rabbinical elite decided that it is “kindling a fire” (forbidden in Torah — see Numbers 15). The rabbi who made up this takkanah thought that there was fire inside the lamp. When it was demonstrated that it was excited tungsten wire, the takkanah was then defended by the observation the there was a spark at the switch. As a result I was criticized by the religious matron upstairs for having an automatic LED lamp on the dark and dangerous stairway outside the apartment — she wanted me to switch it off on Shabbat.
However, those who liberated themselves from these religious stupidities then created their own pseudo-scientific stupidity called ‘consensus’ science, where science was deemed to be solely material and/or social and where, if something was not detectable by the five senses, or otherwise approved by socialist academia, then it was obvious that it did not exist. Further, this physicalist academist science was politicized into Lysenkoism where pseudo-sciences such as ‘climate change’ also became political propaganda, and the doors of the metaphysical and the physical gaols were flung open to receive deniers and those perpetrating ‘hate’: a new religion, a new heresy and a new inquisition. Always the same thing.
Utopia is a place where everybody believes the same thing, does the same thing, and thinks the same thing, except that is, for the 72 virgins and the countless young, wine-serving boys with skins of pearl who must submit themselves to the sexual advances of their betters.
I try to avoid the godship of men, and their inevitable visions of man-made utopias. Man-gods like to define what is good and what is evil, what is acceptable and what is unacceptable behavior, and then inflict their dogmas on society as a religion, political or mystical. But there are benign religions that preach “thou shalt not kill”, and those that justify, even glorify killing as a way to quickly and easily achieve the religio-political consensus needed for their particular utopia.
I have a theory. Historically, I see the huge leap in civilization that stemmed from the absorption of biblical principles into Western society, and also the erosion of civilization during my lifetime as those biblical principles have been trashed by the forces of materialism and entertainmentism (please excuse the neologism). My theory is that the closer we get to the truth of creation, the more civilized we become. Creation is the physical truth that we can see when we look out the window, but it is also a set of spiritual (metaphysical) truths that act in synergy with those physical truths. If we are at odds with the spiritual truths the civilization declines and becomes barbaric, but if we seek to build our society around those physical and spiritual truths then our society prospers in an almost supernatural way because it becomes aligned with the natural forces and laws inherent in the creation. Here there is synergy between God (the creative force) and man.
But of course this theory makes me a ‘religious’ nut job, with little credibility in the wider world, the world in the grip of utopian propagandas as we are ‘taught’ (coerced) from a tender age.
In World War Two we were duped into fighting alongside one secular humanist tyranny to exterminate another of the same kind, and we became contaminated. I would ask all readers to watch the documentary “The Soviet Story”, but to view it in the light of the brainwashing that we have undergone and which has allowed our whole civilization to come under threat.
Communism (as well as Nazism) is a subtle variation of the feudal system that has forever existed in various forms throughout the world. In Europe it did not survive much past the Black Death, but the final nail in its coffin was the printing of the Bible in the languages of the people. Where this happened, civilization grew.
For many years the penalty for translating the Bible was burning at the stake (the Moloch ritual), and this was the fate of William Tyndale (1494-1536) who was the first to translate the Bible into English. Prior to this the Bible was in Latin, the language of intellectuals and priests who could interpret it to their own tastes and without serious challenge, and so manipulate the people who could not “test everything” as did the Bereans. So grew up the utopian ideals of heaven and hell: obey the elite and you go to heaven, dissent and you go to hell.
I hope it has not escaped the reader’s attention that the same message is now disseminated by mainstream media where news is spun to achieve the same utopian/feudal design. People can read comics and trash novels (I do it often) but they often don’t read much else. Fifteen years ago I spoke to my brother about the New World Order, and he accused me of being a conspiracy theorist. He has stopped doing that now.
As humans, we think that if we change the name of something, we can pretend it is different:
In reality there is little difference between the political moralities of either Hitler or Lenin/Stalin, especially when one is behind the barbed wire fence waiting for death to relieve one of the pain of forced labor and starvation. Yet these villains are supposed to be opposites. The Nazis are reputed to be conservatives and conservative thought is almost always labeled ‘neo-Nazi’.
But it is the collectivist viewpoint that seems to enshrine utopias. If Israel will only give in to the Palestinians then there will be world peace (and no jooz). The ‘no jooz’ bit seems to have importance, too: the will of the Palestinian Authority (and Hamas) is a ‘one state’ solution ethnically cleansed of jooz, from the river (Jordan) to the sea (Mediterranean), Palestine will be free (of jooz). This overtly Nazi cause has support from the mainstream left/liberal cause throughout Europe and also in the Obama administration. Once the Clinton is in power by virtue of ‘Jewish’ donations, her policies will be identical to those of the incumbent.
And so we move on. Laws and constitutions must become softer. They must now point people towards the mystical ‘oneness’ of utopianism; things are no longer about freedom. They are about conformity. The millennial generation are convinced that they are different, as they gaze into their
crystal balls smartphones.
It is now a social (and in some places a judicial) crime to be ‘different’ if that difference involves some kind independent thought — thinking outside of the politically correct tunnel, or taking a ramp off the utopia highway. Is carbon a fertilizer or a felony? Is Israel a democracy or a pariah? Is Iran a responsible member of the world community that can be trusted with nukes?

A utopia is a dream, but who would want a dream to become a reality? The unpredictability of dreams can be very uncomfortable whilst asleep, but to have that brought into real life where there is no waking to find it was all — well, just a dream, is quite horrifying in its intensity. As a male in unfettered Muslim hands, I would find it very easy to lose my head. As a female, perhaps I might prefer to lose my head.
But we have been taught that nothing really matters if we just let our betters think for us. They can create utopias if we just let them. You know, those people with the big ideas and the larger-than-life media images, they KNOW what is best…
I have been brainwashed. I know this because we have just been to the American shops in Jerusalem where we topped up on Folgers and Crunchies (British candy bar). I see the Crunchies and I automatically think to myself “Crunchie makes exciting biting,” the TV adverting slogan from my childhood.
‘Crunchie makes exciting biting’
But if a candy bar can do this to me, what more subtle and malignant memes have been pumped into my young mind waiting to be triggered by the correct stimuli? We dumped our TV in the late ’70s so the job is probably not finished, but if the jingles persist then what other junk is there lurking in my subconscious?
Here in Israel the English language media is solidly behind Trump, and the thought of a criminal in the White House is incomprehensible, but this is obviously not so where it matters most. We have the dead voting in Virginia, and voting machines that can be hacked all over the place. So we expect democratically aligned zombies to vote in their thousands and tens of thousands.
Just how deep is the subliminal message that tells a supposedly democratic nation that a criminal POTUS is acceptable? Just what is it the makes senior Republicans endorse a dubious Democrat and still remain credible?
Utopias are defined by what or whom they exclude, so the road to any utopia is fouled with discarded human litter, which needs to be disposed of. It is time to look very closely at the utopian processes in our society, not just the Islamic one, but also those with a New World Order agenda as well. This coming election may well be the last chance. To one of those candidates I am nowt but deplorable litter…
