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:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

The alarming growth of state power. Statism is neither 'right' nor 'left'.

Statism, is just simply communalism and unfettered state power. Resist it.

by StFerdIII

 It is all for the 'children's future'.

On May 1, 1937 Adolf Hitler declared: “the youth of today is ever the people of tomorrow.  For this reason we have set before ourselves the task of inoculating our youth with the spirit of this community of the people at a very early age, at an age when human beings are still unperverted and therefore unspoiled.  This Reich stands, and it is building itself up for the future upon its youth.  And this new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will it take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing”. (Noakes & Pridham, 1974, p. 345)

Always for the children.......Witness North America.

A left-wing, Marxist US government cares deeply about the children's future, still tied to a corrupt and non-scientific GlobaloneyWarming/Mother Earth paganism; whilst trying desperately to socialize US health care; expand unionism; print money and deficits until the county collapses; maintain the ponzi schemes in government pensions and social security; and expand the power of the state over the individual to such a degree that an American from 1950 would equate with Russian Sovietization. This is what smart people call hope and change. In Canada, a supposed 'right wing conservative' government wants to build massive prisons and fill them with anyone caught doing anything criminal; give the police unfettered access to every citizen's network history; destroy warrants; and allow the state to spy on its citizens in something that comes right out of Huxley's 'Brave New World'. This is what clever people call 'right wing'. In reality the 'right' and the 'left' simply merge in their eagerness for complete control. There is no 'right or left'. Just the state and its unenlightened despotism and you.

History is basically the his-story of the struggle between the centralized state and despotism, with the individual and human free-will and choice. Most of the processes, conflicts, evolutions and revolutions can be viewed within these two parameters of opposite theologies. On the one hand, the state or Leviathan, is the only instrument of morality, stability, and justice. On the other, the individual is the keeper of culture, morality, progress, innovation, energy, family and mores. Human development only blossoms when the individual and the 'rights of man', along with the declaration of human independence, prevail. When the state is omnipotent, progress stalls, culture degrades and civilization regresses.

Statism has never been either 'left' or 'right'. Looked at nationally and imperially, history is the struggle of the state against every centre of opposition to state power. The family, the church, the shop keeper, the small business, the entrepreneur, the bingo club, the dance hall, the sports team, the stock exchange, the resource owner, the farmer, the orchard, the local bank.....All are centers of power opposed in part to the state and its desire to control everything. The state by its own logic expands. The bureaucracy by its own design deigns and demands control.

The Nazis for example are always portrayed as 'right wing' reactionaries. In 1928 the Nazis won 3% of the vote. In the various regional and national elections in 1932, they won close to 40% buoyed by an alliance with 'conservative' forces. Internal memos by Goebbels and his staff warned Hitler that 1932 was the highpoint. The Nazis had peaked. They had to seize power or watch their ungainly coalition falter and disperse. Improbably at their most vulnerable point Hitler was appointed Chancellor on January 30 1933. Now most historians label his Nazi-Conservative alliance 'right wing'. But were they? Hitler was a dedicated Marxsit.

We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.” [From Hitler's Speech of May 1, 1927, quoted in John Toland (1976), Adolf Hitler: The Definitive Biography, p. 306]

Statists like the Nazis, are all things to all people aren't they? They appeal to all classes with simpleton programs and simpleton solutions.

The 25 points of the Nazi charter demanded that the state be the only arbiter in people's lives and the most important theology in society. The below points are the essential verbatim quotes from the Nazi charter. Are they 'right wing'? Of course not.

  • Citizens are entitled to a job and a decent standard of living.   If this cannot be achieved, foreigners (with no rights as citizens) should be expelled.

  • Nationalisation of public industries.

  • Large companies must share their profits.

  • Pensions must be improved.

  • Help for small shops and businesses; large department stores must be closed down.

  • An all-out battle against criminals, profiteers, etc., who must be punished by death.

  • Improve education so that all Germans can get a job.

  • Improve people’s health by making a law for people to do sport.

  • Abolition of the Army, and a new People’s Army in its place.

  • German newspapers must be free of foreign influence.

  •  Strong central government with unrestricted authority.

I don't see orthodox Liberalism in any of the above. This is a program by the state to assume complete jurisdiction over the education, work, lives, health and outlook of its population. If by 'right' you mean Orthodox Liberalism or Conservatism – a very large tent of ideology – than Nazism was the opposite creed. It truly was national-socialism, which bought off the various powers amongst classes and the conservative elite. The Nazi skill was in propaganda and lies and Hitler's Mein Kampf on page 403, written in 1924 reveals a key insight which every political party, in every major country now uses. The children:

"The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the  people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of  liberty and almost any deprivation." -Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler, Publ.  Houghton Miflin, 1943, Page 403 

Indeed a veracity from a psychotic delusional freak.

The children uber alles. A 'conservative' government in Canada declaims that the police don't need warrants and must know your every network move, phone call, email and site visited in order to protect the children – if you don't agree you are a child pornographer. An Obamed-Marxist government demands that 'enemies' lists be compiled of anyone in any position of influence who might possibly usurp the statist intention to turn most of America's citizens into knaves and clients of the state. The children are being taught in US schools that socialism is good, the US Republican experiment worse than bad. Hence the necessity of destroying those 'enemies of the state'. Bush II derided as a 'neo-con' – whatever that might mean – doubled the US national debt and had little qualms about buying old people's votes via a $100 billion drug prescription price-cap program. Bush was also deeply worried about the children being left behind. How nice and and how consistent. Be deeply worried and concerned about the seniors and the children.

"In an interview with Time magazine, Bush defended the signature domestic policy accomplishment of his administration, which he signed into law ten years ago this week.

In some circles, punching No Child Left Behind is a way to basically say, I’m against Big Government,” Bush acknowledged. “In fact, No Child Left Behind is a way to promote efficient government. In a lot of these debates, you don’t hear real detail or analysis about how to improve the law. In essence, it’s No Child Left Behind is big government.  Bush said his proposal was truly conservative and has been effective at producing accountability in local schools.”

A Federal government meddling in education and under Bush increasing its useless spend on a broken system by 50%, is the opposite of being 'conservative'. It is statist.

As Huxley wrote:

Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because they’re so frightfully clever. I’m really awfully glad I’m a Beta, because I don’t work so hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki. Oh no, I don’t want to play with Delta children. And Epsilons are still worse. They’re too stupid to be able. . . .”

Children programmed as little good state-serving automatons. The Alphas uber alles. All we need is a 'village' [of idiots] to program the children and be worried about their future. It is always about the children. The fastest way to unbridled state power and control. Just chatter about the children. Science closed. Adolf and the experts said so. Neo-cons and conservatives agree.
