Those who do not see what is truly going on in this modern world choose not to see what is truly going on in this modern world because they don’t want to see it.
Those who have chosen not to see what is truly going on in this modern world have chosen to turn away from the Truth. They have actually chosen to become morons. Most people are not inherently morons, but it is a wonder that many people actually choose to become morons because they do not want to see the Truth.
Those who have chosen to see what is truly going on in this modern world know the Truth. They have chosen to see what is truly going on in this modern world because they love the Truth and want the Truth, no matter how unpleasant or even disturbing it might be.
In the context of this modern world, the Truth is becoming more and more difficult to take. This is due to the fact that this modern world is constantly becoming more lost, more perverse, more corrupt, more depraved, more degenerate and more idiotic. This is indeed the Truth about this modern world.
Not only is the Truth about this modern world becoming more and more difficult to take, but this modern world produces an ever-increasing amount of embellishments, illusions, spectacles, distractions, deceptions and lies that are meant to prevent people from seeing the Truth. For most people, all of this artifice, falsity and bullshit serve well enough to keep them from seeing the way things are truly going in this modern world.
The New Age obsessions with peace and love contribute largely to the choice people make not to see the way things are truly going in this modern world. Rather than trying to understand things truly with their minds, people are encouraged to pursue the objects of their emotions. Anything that feels good, anything that makes one happy, anything that makes one forget, anything that provides an escape, anything but facing the Truth.
By choosing to see only what their hearts want to see, many people will choose to “look on the bright side”, which means ignoring and avoiding the unpleasant Truth at all costs. But for an increasing proportion of people, the objects of their emotions seem to be more on the dark side. This quite obviously is a function of the real prevailing conditions of this modern world which are not quite completely hidden by the modern cult of artifice, falsity and bullshit.
The increasingly absurd nature of the sentimental pursuits of modern people is striking, such as all of the idiotic social drama that young people apparently crave in this modern world. Of course, the modern phenomenon of social media (Facebook) plays a major role in encouraging this blatantly mindless tendency. Closely related to this is the mind-boggling proliferation of perverse, degenerate and idiotic videos on sites like Youtube.
Not only are sexual deviants in general encouraged and celebrated in this modern world, but forms of extreme and even criminal sexual deviance are constantly increasing, and increasingly being publicized. What are people supposed to think about the recent revelations about pedophile rings involving various celebrities, officials and politicians (Sandusky, Saville)? Maybe people are supposed to think that justice will be done and everything will be just fine…
There are a great many social ills, evils and wrongs that are routinely ignored by the general public, as if pretending that these social ills, evils and wrongs will go away if they are simply ignored. Or perhaps people believe that their governments will make everything all better real soon with some really pretty band aids…
Me? Cynical? Absolutely! And I have every good reason to be cynical.
I see what is truly going on in this modern world. I see it because I have chosen to see it, rather than choosing not to see it. And I have chosen to see it because I love the Truth above all. It is therefore perfectly impossible for me to be dissuaded or distracted from the Truth by all of the pleasant and lovely and wonderful things of this modern world.
If only I could become a moron like everyone else, so that I too might be blissfully ignorant of the truly hopeless nature of this modern world… (sigh)
Some time ago, I posted something called “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”. In that post, I defined three groups of human beings.
The Ugly are the common, average people, i.e. the Masses, which I call the 98%. The Masses are not inherently predisposed to spirituality. They tend to believe that material and sentimental concerns are all that life is truly about. And in this, they aren’t mistaken, because life does consist only of material and sentimental concerns. Yet, the Masses are not incapable of recognizing that which is higher than the material and sentimental, and thus of receiving spirituality, at least to some degree.
The Good, which are the Good 1%, are different from the Masses. They are not common or average. They are in fact, at least potentially, essentially higher beings, and this is due to the fact that they are inherently predisposed to spirituality. For the Good, there is an innate knowledge that there is something more to existence than the material and sentimental concerns of life. Indeed, the Good need something which is above and beyond life, and that something is provided by Tradition.
Some of the Good have had the good fortune of being born and raised in conditions that at least allowed, if not encouraged, their apprehension of the rudiments of Tradition. In such cases, the fortunate ones were usually born into rich, conservative families. But for others of the Good, fortune has been less kind. They were born and raised in conditions that did not favor, and often obstructed, their apprehension of the rudiments of Tradition. They therefore have been largely unable to really be the Good that they potentially are. And it is to be expected that the number of the latter unfortunate and largely unrealized Good has grown considerably with respect to the number of the former fortunate Good over the past two centuries or so, especially in the last half-century or so.
As for the Bad, which are the Bad 1%, these are also different from the Masses. Like the Good, they are neither common nor average. But unlike the Good, the Bad are inherently predisposed against spirituality. The Masses are not inherently inclined to that which is spiritually higher, but the Bad are essentially opposed to that which is spiritually higher. They fundamentally despise that which is spiritually higher. Therefore their “unholy” mission is to ultimately eradicate spirituality altogether, and this is effectively accomplished by the elimination of Tradition. In order to replace genuine spirituality, they foster every conceivable type of false spirituality, which is really just glorified sentimentality.
One of the many anti-Traditional doctrines that have proliferated in this modern liberal world is the doctrine of equality. Like all other anti-Traditional doctrines, such as feminism and multiculturalism, the doctrine of equality has been progressively imposed in order to undermine, attack and destroy spirituality.
The modern liberal democratic doctrine of equality is not really meant to elevate the Masses. This is effectively impossible (and the Bad know this): no matter how the Masses might be artificially propped up, they can never truly rise above the level of the Masses in a truly spiritual manner. At best, their material and sentimental conditions might be improved. Of course, to the modern liberal democratic mind, improvement of material and sentimental conditions is the only important thing in life.
In fact, the doctrine of equality is meant to reduce the Good to the level of the Masses, rather than elevating the Masses. In order to effectively impose the doctrine of equality, and thus to reduce the Good to the level of the Masses, it has been necessary to annihilate Tradition. (It should be noted that, no matter how much the Bad may voice support for the doctrine of equality, they obviously don’t believe that it really applies to them.) For this reason, the Bad have consistently endeavored, at least since the French Revolution, to do everything possible to attack and to destroy Tradition. Marxism, especially in the form of Communism, has played a big part in the concerted effort to destroy Tradition.
The Bad understand that if they succeed in destroying Tradition, they effectively eliminate spirituality, therefore effectively disabling the Good. This is an ongoing process, and so far, the Bad have enjoyed constant success. For the time being, it does seem that the Good must only lose.
The unspiritual Masses may well believe that spirituality is unnecessary, especially if they follow the progressive teachings of the anti-spiritual Bad. Certainly, the Masses themselves have no need for Tradition itself. But what the Masses fail to understand is that a civilization that is de-spiritualized must gradually go wrong in every possible way. This is in fact the desire of the Bad because it suits their ultimate purpose.
A good civilization is the result of spirituality, and must thus be founded on Tradition. Those who build up good civilizations are members of the Good – spiritual people who understand spirituality. Only the Good are capable of receiving spirituality from above through Tradition, and only they can imbue civilization with the spirituality that will maintain it as a good civilization. (The popular opinion that civilizations are produced by the people in general is really just an absurd delusion.)
De-spiritualizing a civilization ensures its gradual transformation into a bad civilization, because a good civilization can not be maintained without spirituality. With a loss of spirituality, a civilization can only lose itself in material and sentimental concerns, and the result is increasing confusion, disorder and decadence. The Good understand this, which is why they view the ongoing de-spiritualization of civilization with much concern as well as considerable disgust.
Of course, the Bad have solutions to the problem of increasing confusion, disorder and decadence, but their solutions are all anti-spiritual solutions. The solutions that they are gradually imposing all involve a progressive loss of independence through various things such as laws, militarized police, financial tactics, educational institutions, surveillance programs, social engineering and artificial substances. Their anti-spiritual solutions to the problem are all part of the plan to turn our once-good civilization into a bad civilization – a civilization in which the Masses have been completely subjugated and enslaved, i.e. the New World Order.
As I’ve said before, the New World Order won’t last forever. The Bad may indeed be the winners for now, but this is only because we are in fact in the latter stage of the Age of Evil (Kali Yuga). The Bad will ultimately suffer their demise, and their evil civilization will ultimately perish. And no matter how much they try, the Bad will never be able to completely extinguish Tradition altogether because Tradition comes from above. When this evil age finally ends, the Bad will certainly fall and their evil civilization will be utterly terminated. Upon the end of this evil age, Tradition will be restored, and the Good will rise again.
When I was working on this piece, I at first wrote about the danger of the demise of civilization through confusion, disorder and decadence. Then I realized that the Bad had it all figured out – that they would use the confusion, disorder and decadence to transform civilization from a good one to a bad one, rather than letting it perish.
At length, I realized that every time a movie of an apocalyptic nature is released about the end of civilization, replete with themes of anarchy, chaos and violence, what the Bad are essentially saying is: “Look, people! This is what could happen! Unless of course you go along with what we’re doing.”
All human beings have faults. Whether we like it or not, human existence can’t be without imperfections. That’s just the way it is as long as we live in this world as human beings.
But does this mean that we should accept our faults? In fact, it is wrong to accept our faults. It is right that we should accept ourselves despite our faults, but not that we should accept our faults themselves.
Imagine that you built a brand new house. After having lived in the house for a number of years, you discover that there is some kind of structural fault in it. If the fault is not too serious, it might be repaired. But if the fault is too serious, it might not be possible to repair it. In this case, what you would have to do is to make sure that the fault doesn’t get worse. Unless you decided to tear down the house and build again…
Only an insane person would actually want to allow, or even to encourage, the worsening of a structural fault in his house. No one in his right mind would ever say “I hope that these walls in my house continue to become warped and defective, and if the walls eventually collapse, that would be okay with me.” This would obviously be sheer lunacy.
People readily understand the necessity of acting against physical faults. This is why the treatment of physical diseases is considered so very important – no one in his right mind will simply accept his cancer as it is, for example. Also, cosmetic concerns are so common because people want to rid themselves of their physical faults (or what they may perceive as physical faults) as much as possible. What people don’t readily understand is the even greater necessity of acting against sentimental faults. (By the way, there is no such thing as spiritual faults. Spirituality can be lacking, and in this modern world it is often sorely lacking, but it can never be faulty in itself because it comes from above.)
Sentimental faults include such things as character flaws and behavioral disorders. In short, all non-physical faults are rooted in sentiment, and are thus sentimental faults. Because people in this modern world are so obsessed with giving their sentiments free rein, they fail to understand that this usually means giving free rein to their sentimental faults.
Giving free rein to sentiments, and thus to sentimental faults, is a consequence of a lack of spirituality. A well-developed spirituality is the means of properly moderating the sentiments, and also of properly countering sentimental faults.
Over time, unchecked sentimental faults lead invariably to the gradual development of every possible type of disorder, including substance abuse, promiscuity, sexual deviance, frequent social drama, vandalism, etc. Thankfully enough, there are still very few cases of individuals whose sentimental faults are completely unchecked. And as most people mature, they do eventually get the fact that their sentimental faults need to be either repaired or reined in. But the undeniable tendency is that the disorders resulting from unchecked sentimental faults are gradually getting worse and worse. Just look around.
People who are aware that they have serious, irreparable sentimental faults should at least understand that their sentimental faults are inherently unacceptable. They should not deny their sentimental faults, but neither should they broadcast them. Such people should do what they can to counter their sentimental faults without making a public display of it. Their struggle against their sentimental faults is a necessary part of their lives. This is what the Christian concept of “carrying one’s cross” really means.
Countering one’s faults doesn’t necessarily mean being cruel towards oneself. The classic image of the penitent whipping himself repeatedly while saying “mea culpa” is too extreme. Ecclesiastes 7:13 says “Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked?” Trying to straighten a tree that has grown crooked will only break it.
There is no need to be ashamed about having sentimental faults. As long as one has sincerely committed to countering their sentimental faults as much as possible, being ashamed is completely unnecessary. Shame would be warranted only if one gave free rein to his sentimental faults. Acting wrongly should normally result in shame. Of course modern society endeavors to eliminate the very notion of shame altogether because of the modern liberal obsession with giving free rein to sentiments.
Do I have sentimental faults? Yes I do. But unlike many in this day and age, I have every intention of doing what I need to do in order to properly counter my sentimental faults, which includes diligently building up my own genuine spirituality. And in this, I know that I’m right – even despite this modern world.
The reason for the racial conflicts in America is not the fact that people aren’t tolerant enough of other races. Racial tolerance would be a solution to the problem (albeit the wrong one) but a lack of racial tolerance is not the reason for it. The fundamental reason for the racial conflicts in America is quite simply the fact that there is unrestricted race-mixing in America.
The right solution to the problem of racial conflicts in America is not for everyone to be all lovey-dovey towards people of other races. Even if this actually were possible, it would only accelerate the mutual dissolution of all racial, ethnic and cultural differences, and thus lead to an eventual mongrelization of all human beings. This is obviously the way to produce the mono-typical and standardized subhuman slaves of the New World Order.
The right solution to the problem of racial conflicts in America would be to put an end to all race-mixing. By this I mean a definite separation of the races, i.e. a real geographical separation. I do not mean segregation because segregation is really just a controlled form of race-mixing. This definite separation of the races would not necessarily require the expulsion of any races from the continent (although this would perhaps be ideal).
As long as the real fundamental problem of race-mixing exists in America, the rulers of this world will be able to use it in order to keep the people from seeing the real evils that the rulers of this world are gradually inflicting upon them. The racial conflicts in America are truly a distraction from the real dangers of the progressive establishment of the New World Order.
Of course, if the people did manage to overcome their natural racial identities in order to become all lovey-dovey towards people of other races, it would be just fine with the rulers of this world. For now, racial conflicts serve the purposes of the rulers of this world, due to the fact that they help to keep society destabilized and morally devastated. But the eventual goal is to herd all peoples together into one undifferentiated flock in order to most effectively manage and control them all.
Once the rulers have finished establishing their New World Order, they will surely put an end to all racial conflicts – by force. This will necessarily mean eliminating everyone who is opposed to race-mixing. People who agree with the rulers of this world that race-mixing is good will be allowed to survive in order to become part of the mono-typical and standardized subhuman slave class of the New World Order.
The sad fact of the matter is that people in this modern world have been led to believe that they have only two choices in terms of race: either you despise all other races in order to love your own (racist), or you love all other races and despise your own (anti-racist). In this as in so many other things, we have the same old either-or dualistic trap.
Indeed, there are a good number of people who are able to disregard this dualistic trap. These people know well enough that they should love their own race, but without hating other races. Believe it or not, this is possible. I know because this is the way I am. It’s fundamentally a matter of respect. To each his own. It’s really that simple.
But of course, the anti-racists don’t want to understand that at all; they would much rather lump us together with the racists in order to eliminate us. These people are very much of the nature of Lothrop Stoddard’s “Underman”, virulently hateful beings whose profoundly Marxist souls want nothing more than to destroy everything that is distinctly beautiful and excellently different. They are obsessed with the demonic desire to level all of the mountains and to fill in all of the valleys, and they will do anything they can to reduce all peoples to an existentially flat-lined humanity that knows nothing better than to serve as slaves to the New World Order.
Two of the women that I have had to work with over the past few years are clearly atheistic anti-Christian feminists. It’s a shame that they’re both older ladies: they would have been excellent Femen activists! I have had many occasions to witness their virulently anti-Christian attitudes during my time working with them.
One such occasion today prompted me to consider the nature of anti-Christian views. I soon realized that it is not really Christianity per se that anti-Christians despise so much, and that no-one can be strictly anti-Christian.
In fact, any atheistic person who is anti-Christian must also be fundamentally anti-Muslim, anti-Hindu, etc. In short, an atheistic anti-Christian will always be – whether he or she admits it or not – opposed to all genuinely Traditional religions. An atheistic anti-Christian must necessarily always be anti-Tradition.
(Of course, Christian fundamentalists can be anti-Islam, and Islamic fundamentalists can be anti-Christian, and it can be argued that such fundamentalists are not necessarily anti-Tradition, but rather extremely particularistic. And yet, one who vehemently refuses to acknowledge Tradition in another religion can’t exactly be called pro-Tradition.)
If an atheistic person is anti-Christian, it is the religious Tradition (or spiritual Tradition) that Christianity represents which they find so offensive. If such a person is not particularly anti-Islam or anti-Hindu, it is because the religious background of that person is Christian. In their hateful and twisted minds, it is Christianity specifically which poses the threat to them.
Such a person is revolting particularly against the individual religion that represents Tradition in his or her direct experience. It is the same with atheistic people from Islamic backgrounds who become anti-Islam, or atheistic people from Hindu backgrounds who become anti-Hindu. They are all fundamentally anti-Tradition, but they target those specific religions that they have direct experiences with.
It is interesting to note that anti-Christian views are still quite in fashion even despite the fact that the Christian churches have done much to abandon, and even to reject, Tradition. It seems that no matter how much they try to make themselves presentable to the anti-Traditionalists, they are still viewed by some as representing a religious Tradition, and are thus despised and attacked.
But the time is surely coming when a global religion will arise to replace all Traditional religions. This will be the atheistic religion of anti-Tradition that René Guénon predicted, a religion fundamentally anti-spiritual in nature, a truly demonic religion. This will be the religion that the Christians (from their distinctly Christian point of view) have called the Church of the Anti-Christ.
The coming atheistic religion of anti-Tradition will completely replace and/or incorporate all Traditional religions, and it will do its utmost to completely extinguish genuine Tradition from the world. But even if it succeeds in eliminating Tradition from the world, it can never extinguish Tradition altogether because Tradition comes from above.
When this evil age finally ends, the atheistic religion of anti-Tradition will cease to exist, and Tradition will be fully restored. That time may still be quite far off, but it will come. In the end, Tradition will prevail. And there’s nothing that atheistic anti-Christian feminists can do about that.
On September 11, 2001, the greatest false flag operation in all of human history was carried out. Three skyscrapers in Manhattan were demolished after two of them were hit by airplanes. Some kind of explosion destroyed a particular section of the Pentagon. And there was some kind of occurrence in Pennsylvania.
The spectacular events of 9-11 made a lot of things possible for the rulers of this world. Under the deceptive cover of the so-called “War on Terror”, a long list of initiatives were carried out, including the Patriotic Act, Homeland Security, the TSA, the conquest of Iraq, the conquest of Afghanistan, the conquest of Libya, etc. etc. etc.
Thanks to 9-11, the rulers of this world were able to bring their game-plan to a whole new level. But unfortunately, nothing lasts forever, and the effects of 9-11 have waned considerably in the past thirteen years.
The rulers of this world are still diligently trying to carry out their plans towards their objectives – with much help from CIA-organized revolutions as well as their terrorist puppets like Hamas and ISIS. They’ve managed to take Ukraine, but they seem to be having trouble getting rid of Bashar al-Assad in Syria, and Iran is still an unsolved problem.
The two apparent opponents of the rulers of this world, the Russians and the Chinese, don’t seem to be too concerned about all of the American posturing and threats. Soon enough, the rulers of this world will need something to really get the ball rolling.
In order to finally usher in the final stage of their big game, they’re going to need something really, really big – something far, far bigger than 9-11. They’re going to need World War Three.
WWI and WWII allowed the rulers of this world to set the stage for things that they wanted to achieve in the first half of the twentieth century, including the League of Nations then the United Nations, the worldwide spread of Communism, as well as NATO, the IMF, etc.
WWIII will allow the rulers of this world to finish their job: to fully implement the New World Order.
Sooner or later, WWIII has to happen simply because the rulers of this world need it to happen. I understand this, so I have no reason to believe that WWIII can be avoided. Therefore, I see no reason to be afraid or anxious.
In fact, I even look forward to WWIII finally happening. At least it will mean that we’re that much closer to the end of this horrendously tragic play. The New World Order has to happen, but it won’t last forever. So let it happen sooner rather than later, which necessarily means let WWIII happen sooner rather than later.
Of course, what really sucks about this is that WWIII will by no means lead to things getting better. In fact, WWIII will mean that the worst possible will finally come to be. As it is now, things have steadily been getting worse and worse and worse and worse. But after WWIII, the worst possible will finally be within the realm of reality, and it is undoubtedly going to happen. There certainly isn’t anything anyone can do about it.
Then again, I could be mistaken. It could be incorrect to say that WWIII is necessary. In fact, it may not be necessary at all.
The Russians and the Chinese may not really be opponents of the rulers of this world, as I insinuated above (“apparent opponents”). It could very well be that the Russians and the Chinese are working towards the same aim as the rulers of this world (viz. the New World Order), but from the other side. Control both sides and you control the outcome. Basic Hegelian dialectics.
(Remember that Texas ranch summit between Putin and Bush shortly after 9-11, when Putin and Bush seemed like best pals and bosom buddies? What was really decided during that summit?)
If this is in fact the case, and to me it doesn’t seem unlikely at all, there will be no need for WWIII. Only the threat of WWIII will suffice to keep moving things in the direction that the rulers of this world want them to go. As long as there’s a threat of WWIII, the people can be led to accept pretty much anything.
After all, if WWIII actually did happen, it could well mean the significant use of nuclear weapons. Although I wouldn’t exactly put it past them, I doubt that the rulers of this world would really want to allow that much devastation. But perhaps I’m underestimating the capacity, or the propensity, of the rulers of this world for inflicting devastation on the world.
In any case, even if WWIII doesn’t happen, the condition of humanity will still only continue to worsen and worsen and worsen, and the full-blown New World Order will still come about just the same, sooner or later. We are undoubtedly entering the last and worst phase of the Kali Yuga, and this must mean that humanity’s worst hour is nearly at hand.
The Devil loves stupid people, because he can easily use the emotions of stupid people to lead them astray, to deceive them, and even to sic them against the people that he wants to destroy, especially those who are spiritually intelligent.
Whether it is sorrow, or anger, or even love, it makes no difference to the Devil. The Devil can use any emotion to lead a stupid person to do his bidding. As long as a person is stupid, the Devil can easily lead that person into every conceivable type of error simply by manipulating his/her emotions.
In this modern world, it is obvious that many stupid people are misled in manifold ways through the bad emotions, such as hate, anger, sorrow and anxiety. What is not so obvious is that the Devil equally misleads stupid people through their good emotions, such as love and joy.
While stupid people nowadays are wholeheartedly engaged in a full-out war against the bad emotions, they are at the same time completely oblivious to the fact that the Devil is fully enjoying the use of their good emotions for his nefarious purposes.
The current precipitous decline of human society, characterized by steadily increasing confusion, disorder, perversion and decadence, is due not so much to the effects of bad sentiments, but so much more to the effects of misguided good sentiments.
As I said in a previous post, the Devil laughs. There certainly is no shortage of stupid people in this modern world who are ready, willing and able to serve him by allowing him to misuse their emotions, and love is certainly not the least of these.
The complete human being is composed of three elements: the physical (or material), the sentimental (or emotional) and the spiritual. The first two are inherent to the human being, as they are also to all animals. It is the third element – the spiritual – which properly defines the complete human being, thus differentiating the complete human being from the animals.
The physical is below. The sentimental rises up from the physical, i.e. from below. But the spiritual is from above.
In a properly spiritual state, the rulers are deeply imbued with the spirituality which they have received from above. Their spiritual influence spreads down throughout society. This fosters the development of the complete human being with a well-developed spirituality.
Such a spiritually imbued state is characterized by higher values such as order, morality, righteousness, and virtue.
In an unspiritual state, the rulers have little if any spirituality. Being ignorant of spirituality, they can’t transmit spirituality downwards throughout society, and spirituality in society is consequently lacking.
Such a spiritually deficient society is focused only on sentimental and physical concerns, and is therefore characterized by baseness, primitiveness and mediocrity.
A democratic state, the basic idea of which is that power comes from the people, is an inherently unspiritual state. The people do not have the capacity to receive genuine spirituality from above, and even if they did, they certainly would not be able to spread it upwards to their unspiritual rulers.
At best, the people can only retain any spirituality that they may have received in the past, but this will gradually decrease with time as their spirituality effectively dissipates. As spirituality decreases, false and deceptive forms of spirituality are increasingly produced, these really being expressions of sentimentality.
Rather than being imbued with spirituality from above, a democratic state is progressively imbued with sentimentality from below and is correspondingly obsessed with the physical i.e. materialism.
In recent times, rulers have become increasingly anti-spiritual, rather than just unspiritual. Instead of simply ignoring spirituality, these anti-spiritual rulers do everything they can to actively oppose the spirituality which is from above, while also doing everything they can to encourage the sentimental concerns (especially through false spirituality) and material concerns which come from below.
Such a state in which anti-spirituality rules is increasingly characterized by decadence, perversion and evil. Most Western states are clearly anti-spiritual states.
