Cremating Culture, Along With It’s History and Knowledge — Aye, Therein Lies A Problem

2020/06/10

“So great is their belief in their own rightness that no lie, corruption, or act of violence is unreasonable.”

Like the Jesuits, the re-education sect of the Society of Jesus and other inquisitional Dominican and Franciscan cults of “christian” soldiers, or the Islamist jihadist and other anarchist-driven cults permeating the modern antisocial social environment; these are the destroyers of history and other cultures. Hence, it’s not as if we haven’t had ample warning to prepare.

The timeliness and Spirit of Voltaire’s hero in Candide is his capacity to perceive atrocities with a compassionate and open mind. His disbelief is not discriminatory; wherever his journeys take him, he remains bewildered by the abuses of power resulting from the fanatical beliefs and hypocritical despotism, which he observes. Intentionality does not allow his character to be drawn down into the nether regions of cultural cynicism or become victimized by an unfeeling perspective on what is an infinitely cruel and often delusional world.

And likened to Voltaire’s character in Candide, the zeitgeist pierces the very core of our exposure to existential crisis as we yearn to escape from all the chaos that seeks to deceive, enslave, control and contain us.


Imagine a society where Knowledge is prohibited and banned by laws…Imagine a society where books are prohibited, where the basic rights made clear in the First Amendment hold no weight and society is merely a brainwashed, mechanical population.

Hide Your Books From the “Peaceful Protesters”

Well, Ray Bradbury warned us, didn’t he? Or he tried to, anyway.

As this once great land descends even further into this “check your privilege” wokescold madness, the lawless not only want to govern your actions but your thoughts as well. What so many are hailing as a transformative moment in American history is really a dystopian thought-policing nightmare.

A recurring theme in history is that the thought fascists like to tightly control what the people it seeks to oppress read. Propaganda doesn’t work well if the masses can read whatever they want. Social justice warriors have been coming after books for a while now, most often Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which Ernest Hemingway said was the launching point of modern American literature. A censored version of it was released in 2011 and even The New York Times found it problematic.

The Times would more than likely embrace the book today.

Just when you think that there couldn’t be anything more annoying than watching idiots kneel all about the place comes a post on NPR.org titled “Your Bookshelf May Be Part of the Problem.”

Some of this examination of the power of books borders on thoughtful, but two paragraphs just grated on me:

You may have seen the phrase “decolonize your bookshelf” floating around. In essence, it is about actively resisting and casting aside the colonialist ideas of narrative, storytelling, and literature that have pervaded the American psyche for so long.

If you are white, take a moment to examine your bookshelf. What do you see? What books and authors have you allowed to influence your worldview, and how you process the issues of racism and prejudice toward the disenfranchised? Have you considered that, if you identify as white and read only the work of white authors, you are in some ways listening to an extension of your own voice on repeat? While the details and depth of experience may differ, white voices have dominated what has been considered canon for eons. That means non-white readers have had to process stories and historical events through a white author’s lens. The problem goes deeper than that, anyway, considering that even now 76% of publishing professionals — the people you might call the gatekeepers — are white.

The progressives in academia have spent decades bad-mouthing and marginalizing the Western canon in an effort to “enlighten” the youth of America. It’s a “throw the baby out with the bathwater” approach that views any book written by “dead white men” as dangerous and is part of an anti-intellectual approach to history that is used as a launching point for academic anti-American screeds.

And it’s tedious.

book burning

A large crowd gathers to witness the book burning, Buecherverbrennung, at Opera Square in Berlin, Germany on May 10, 1933. Students threw a thousand torches on the bonfire and seized “un-German” books from trucks and hurled them into the blaze amid cheers. The chosen books included writings of some of Germany’s best-known authors, as well as foreign writers. (AP Photo)

The books on my shelf aren’t a road map of my process of forming a worldview, they’re a reflection of occasional curiosities. Living in Los Angeles for 25 out of the last 30 years probably did more in that regard than Henry James ever could. There will be no examination of my shelves to see if the books featuring Polish poets, Korean women writers or, on occasion, James Patterson are making me an un-woke racist monster.

Oh, there are a few Tolkien books there, too. He went to Mass every day, so that’s probably just reinforcing my Roman Catholic patriarchal privilege.

We learn a lot from books, of course, but reading for me is another form of escapism, even non-fiction. The wokescolds have ruined most of television and movies, now they want to come into my living room and start wagging fingers at my reading list. All hell is going to break loose when they find out that I decided to tackle Proust during the shutdown.

Obviously, people aren’t literally burning books just yet. The spirit of book burning is upon us, though. With what we have seen in the past ten days from the rage mob, expecting the leftist worst from them really isn’t a stretch.

Our world today has moved closer to the world depicted in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 than we may think. If we dare to closely observe what is happening, we will find that there is censorship in most everything. Only now it is being called by a different name. Take education for example, if it can be called that. In the student textbooks women are no longer allowed to be depicted doing housework, men are no longer depicted as masculine or be shown with tools, or cartoon characters can no longer be shown with guns. Any scientific references to biology relating to gender is being totally removed while normal sexuality is being absolutely confused, White-Americans can no longer be athletes or for that matter anything else, but are supposed to be “privileged,” and Orientals, Hispanics and other legal immigrants are no longer to be shown as industrious or own their businesses because they are supposed to be wards of the sanctuary States. All of this is a form of insanity just to make a few delusional people within a certain political culture and a preferred pigment, with a depraved and racist agenda happy. If it isn’t’ reined in soon, Bradbury’s assumption of the future may come true, just as Orwell’s, Huxley’s and Rand’s. Certainly the hour has already gotten late.


The devil’s in the Cult-ure

Here is how it works:

Every cult has a hierarchical leadership structure because the point of having a cult is to have followers who will revere the leaders and give them all their money.

Perpetual manipulation requires perpetual renewal. That’s why Cult groups won’t let us turn around without seeing their slogans posted everywhere. If you’re surrounded by images of people “who made bigger sacrifices” than you to the in-group and were socially justly rewarded then you’ll feel pressure to conform with their ideology without anyone having to say a word to you.

Poor and ignorant people are swindled out of their money, and the charismatic cult leaders get to live like demigods surrounded by obedient followers.

If you’re singing or chanting about being willfully obedient then you’re just mesmerizing yourself, and you’re hypnotizing the people standing around you listening to you bloviating you’re ignorance about the virtue of willful obedience, servitude, sacrifice, and faith.

Cults require their victim/followers to perform rote physical drills like marching, dancing, kneeling, fist raising. and protesting. The moment they participate in a drill they’re being obedient. They didn’t just kneel or march or clap. They followed an order without thinking about it, and the more they do that the more likely they are to do it again.

Self-identity based on affiliation with the group, modifies behavior so individuals won’t want to spend time with people whose clearer perception of reality could endanger their faith in the group..

If a group of people can be manipulated into following orders and acting in unison they can eventually be given orders, such that the whole group can be turned into a mob and all act in unison. This gives cult organizers the power to tell a group of people to go build a house or go ransack and burn a community down.

The point of cult leadership lectures and rhetoric is to deliver a message, and the message is that followers need to base their self-worth on their membership in the group and demonstrate obedience to the group’s ideology. They’re told this will bring them closer to the “goal“. Mostly it brings them closer to the group and the money sponsoring “the cause.”

Community organizers aka cult leaders will attempt to mesmerize their followers with the way they dress and talk. There goal is to guilt trip them. They make impossible, if not ludicrous promises, demands and horrific threats. They turn crowds into mobs working them up into a vulnerable, irrational frenzy right before they deliver an ultimatum.

The point of every cult event or movement, is to build up to the moment where the cult leaders make a call to action. The call for action is to either give them money, or take the followers commitment to the cult to the next level, humiliating themselves or at least honoring those who do.

The more guilty a cult leader can make their followers feel, the more righteous it will make them look. When followers confess and “take a knee” or “raise a fist” in front of others, it makes the experience more real for the confessor and the audience.

The most effective way to control the minds of a group of followers is to lock them in an isolated compound together where the cult leaders can control every aspect of their lives. Indoctrination centers, gangs, and other types of organizations use this same type of captive method. But where this method is not an option, the goal is to keep the in-group together as much as possible and get them to willfully ostracize themselves from the rest of society as much as possible.

When cult leaders organize constant events that keep their useful tools and idiots together… the outcome can be determined and is usually accurately predicted.

The amount of exposure we see in our life attests to how quickly the effects of manipulation can fade and thus how important it is to constantly top-up the message in the audience’s short-term memory. This is done by getting some a slogan stuck in their head. If they walk around all day repeating the cult’s custom-designed message in their heads, then they’re doing the cult’s job of reminding them of the message.

If the cult manipulators can get a person to constantly eat, sleep and breathe their doctrine, then they will become the leader’s and cult’s own dogmatic tools. They will then do the cult leader’s job of manipulating others for the cause. If their peers are policed, then they will practically be forcing people to keep giving the cult money and obedience it demands.

And if that doesn’t work …Fear is the dominant emotion that totalitarians at every level generate in law-abiding, taxpaying citizens.

So, now you know,..

“If you want to explain the promulgation of themes intrinsic to interethnic amity and tolerance, it helps to find people who have profited from the promulgation, and these will generally be people who are in one sense or another playing non-zero sum games across ethnic bounds.” –Robert Wright

Convert or Die it’s The Necromonger Way:” The inquisition precedes the revolution, afterwards comes the reign of terror,

Where there is the propensity to abuse both religion and political power; it will undoubtedly lead to profound levels of sociopathic insanity.

“I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits”, said Hitler… “Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organization of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organization into my own party… I am going to let you in on a secret… I am founding an Order… In my “Burgs” of the Order, we will raise up a youth which will make the world tremble… Hitler then stopped, saying that he couldn’t say any more..

Heads of states were assassinated by the Jesuits, when they attempt to suppress the influence and meddling of the Jesuits in their national affairs.  Of heads of states that are known to have been assassinated by Jesuits we mention for example: William of Orange, Kings Henry III and Henry IV of France, Czars Alexander I and Alexander II of Russia, President Abraham Lincoln and John F.  Kennedy, and Mexican President Benito Pablo Juarez.

Nonetheless, be aware that History is still being written, rewritten and revised. Electronic texts are easily edited and even erased from the devices that store them.  So burning one’s expensive device would be an “old school” solution.

But don’t forget  that the title, Fahrenheit 451’ references the temperature at which “book“s paper would burn, and Bradbury tells his story of a dystopian society where all books are banned and people pass their time staring at screens while they barely talk to one another. If this optic seems and sounds familiar, perhaps we are closer to that sort of dystopian world than it may seem. Or at least there is a burning desire to do so.
