Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII - Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

Roger Scruton: Fools, Frauds and Firebrands. Destroying 'Leftist' Philosophers

Marxist-Socialist 'thinkers' have nothing intelligent or moral to say.

by StFerdIII

 

 

Conservative Philosopher (recently deceased), Roger Scruton was a former academic exiled from his land due to heretical thought crimes, which offended the Marxist-Globalist Academic-Propaganda Complex.  90% of academics are Marxist-Socialist (including those who support Green Nazism or non-science such as ‘warming’).  There is little free speech with academe, with most universities and most programs (many of them utterly useless); nothing more than propaganda mills for the rather illiterate and ignorant view of the Professing class.  They preach a form of immoral-spirit-less religiosity and dogma, devoid of morality or intelligence.

“Hence the distinction between science and ideology: my thought is science, yours is ideology; my thought is Marxist (since only Marxism penetrates the veil of ideology), yours is ‘idealist’; my thought is proletarian (Lukács), yours is bourgeois; my thought belongs to the ‘material conditions’ of production, and can be called ‘theoretical praxis’, your thought belongs to the false consciousness that arises like a cloud above the place where history is made. My thought is at work in the factory; yours is puffed from the chimney and dissolves into air.”

 

Scruton excoriated ‘Liberals’ (Socialists, Communists, Globalists, Relativists, Humanists, Positivists – they do come with many labels); for 60 years.  His crime was to live in rural England, living in the real world, connected to nature (small husbandry farm); eschewing Fake News (BBC, Sly etc); avoiding addictions (TV, Internet, Small screens); and deploying Christian faith and morality, as he regarded other philosophers and the world around him.  He was persona-non-grata for Quackademia, the Fake News, the ‘Leftist’ rent-a-mob, those who are perpetually outraged, and those addicts who know little about the real world, nature or even their own human minds, brains and bodies.

 

In Fools and Frauds he admits his thought crimes:

“My previous book was published at the height of Margaret Thatcher’s reign of terror, at a time when I was still teaching in a university, and known among British left-wing intellectuals as a prominent opponent of their cause, which was the cause of decent people everywhere. The book was therefore greeted with derision and outrage, reviewers falling over each other for the chance to spit on the corpse. Its publication was the beginning of the end for my university career, the reviewers raising serious doubts about my intellectual competence as well as my moral character. This sudden loss of status led to attacks on all my writings, whether or not they touched on politics.”

 

Today across the Western World, fascistic-terrorist groups such as Black Lives Matter (but not if you are the wrong kind of Black like say a Christian murdered by Moslems, or a Police officer killed by Blacks); Anti-fa, Extinction Rebellion, and various Moslem Jihadic groups (usually organised by the Moslem Brotherhood or ISIS); are using public violence, arson, terror and assaults to bring down the ‘structure’ of Western civilisation.  This is what many youth are taught at indoctrination schools (university).  To say that half-wits support these programs is only pointing out the obvious.  It is only an obvious and sad fact that most of Western youth are polluted with Marxist dogma, unable to think, act reasonably, work productively, understand history and reality, and recognise the colossal ignorance of their own immoral-double standards.

“Two attributes of the new order justify the pursuit of it: liberation and ‘social justice’. These correspond roughly to the liberty and equality advocated at the French Revolution, but only roughly. The liberation advocated by left-wing movements today does not mean simply freedom from political oppression or the right to go about one’s business undisturbed. It means emancipation from the ‘structures’…..Much of their literature (the Marxist prophets he exposes) is devoted to deconstructing such institutions as the family, the school, the law and the nation state through which the inheritance of Western civilization has been passed down to us.”

 

The philosophies and polices of the ‘Left’ always lead to fascistic totalitarianism usually headed by a Leader who like many of the academic panjandrums today, has never worked, does not have a family, and never participated in nature, or civil society.  It is all violence and destruction.  Atheist socialists such as Hitler, Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot (who learned his Communism in Paris from French ‘thinkers’ such as Sartre); were all committed Statists, in which various forms of statism (Communism, Fascism), would completely control society, the individual would melt into a collective and nothing would lie outside the state. 

 

None of these ‘Leftists’ had worked, engaged in normal family development, nor had any time for religious faith or spiritual development.  All of them were hard-core Evolutionary-dialectical materialists. The atheist Mussolini, who did have a job as a newspaper editor for a number of years but was largely outside of ‘normal life’ as most of us would understand it, pithily described the program, now promoted by the ‘New Left’, an Atheist movement in which ‘everything is in the state’.  

 

So it is with the Atheistic ‘New Left’.  Violent, intolerant, full of Newspeak, full of hate, anger, and racism (against Whites).

“Marx’s ‘materialist’ theory of history was a response to Hegel, who had seen the evolution of human societies as driven by the consciousness of their members, as this is expressed in religion, morality, law and culture. Not so, Marx famously wrote. It is ‘not consciousness that determines life, but life that determines consciousness’ (The German Ideology). Life is not a conscious process occurring in the realm of ideas, but a ‘material’ reality, rooted in the needs of the organism. And the basis of social life is likewise material, involving the production, distribution and exchange of goods. Economic activity is the ‘base’ on which the ‘superstructure’ of society rests.”

 

Marx’s theories are incredibly mindless and devoid of reality.  Individuals, institutions, cultures, history, legacies, technology, markets, decisions, families, Churches, none of these exist, except to server the ‘materialist’ phase which abstractly controls all human organisation.  These ‘intellectuals’, including Freud, Marcuse, Hobsbawm, Derrida, Foucault, Galbraith, and a long list of other psychologically ill, morally compromised and mentally constrained philosophers, simply ignore real life.

“language, religion, custom, association and traditions of political order – in short, all those forces that absorb competing individuals into the shared identity of a nation. To identify the working class as an agent, even if ‘metaphorically’, is to ignore the true significance of national consciousness as a genuine agent of change.”

 

And in condemning their old enemy ‘bourgeois-capitalism’ run by Whites and Jews (racism mixed with envious stupidity), there is never a real analysis done about the benefits of a system of markets, institutions, laws and free-association, only a limp hatred about the ‘structure’ which provides such flaccid humans the ability to not work, engage in mindless philosophy, or adjure their ‘proletariat’ to violence and war.

“no statistics, no detailed analysis of the modern firm or its specific instances, no examination of the structure of decision making, no real comparison between the private corporation and the state monopoly and no theory of the legal personality of the corporations in a modern state. We are offered nothing more than social psychology...”

 

Scruton eviscerates many of the modern world’s ‘philosophers’.  He simply repeats what they write, showing the gibberish, illogic, the tautological statements, the circular reasoning and the abdication of thought, reason and morality in their pronouncement’s to their flock of eager half-wits, that the long pages of jargon and nothing, really mean something important, namely; the destruction of the Western state is a mission worth dying for.  An Austrian Baron ‘Lukacs’, often cited by the New Left as a great thinker, is an example.

“He might have noticed his own hatred of God, his refusal of trust, humility and atonement, and his overweening violence towards the created world. But he would have noticed, too, how much his ‘messianic sectarianism’ remained wedded to the deed of Sarajevo, how much the annihilating labels – ‘ideologist’, ‘nihilist’, ‘reactionary’, ‘nostalgist’ – which he threw so indiscriminately at the imaginary enemy might have been rightly attached to himself, and how much he remained to the last what he was in the beginning, a privileged remnant of a vanished ruling class.”

 

The arrogance, the ego, the ignorance of misplaced pride, the labelling of ordinary people as categories of problems, the lack of analysis or understanding.  All from yet another ‘thinker’ who never worked, never lived in reality, was disconnected from nature, humans and normal associations.

“By constantly notching up the critique of American capitalism and its culture, and making only muted or dismissive references to the real nightmare of communism, those thinkers showed their profound indifference to human suffering and the unserious nature of their prescriptions.”

 

‘New Left’ (Globalism, Internationalism, Socialism, Communism) is a religion without spirituality.  There are no ethics, morals, regulations rooted in respect for others, or for private property, individual effort, or for history, culture, and the accumulation of civilisation over 3000 years.

Scruton’s books are a panacea for the age of stupid, for an era of anti-White racism, ignorance about the Moslem project, the deification of Fake News and Science Fiction.  Most of the nonsense one hears can be traced back to the ‘Thinkers’ Scruton so ably destroys.
