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...

Nothing new in the modern cults of 'science'

We have seen it all before.

by StFerdIII

 Scientism, in which all principles that are deemed 'scientific' are venerated as gospel, and are marketed as obvious and ineffable verities, is of course a not-so-modern cult. The cult of the state long predates that of Sargon the Great, the first multi-national builder of empires. Sargon was just a better propagandit than his predecessorss.


Today the same processes are at work, which established the intolerance of say the ancient Akkadian, Assyrian or Egyptian states. Today we daily witness an endless stream of activists, charlatans [politicians], frauds [state funded scientists] and Marxists [most of the voting population], who label themselves as 'rational', 'objective', or worse 'scientific' when the opposite labels would apply. There is nothing scientific or rational about dialectical Marxism and unfettered state power; or the love-and-compassionate-Socialism bandied by politicians and civil servants [with its fraudulent lies about poverty, capitalism, or how civilization was built].


There is nothing but hypocrisy in the cults of moral relativity, Islam is Peace, gay-sex-is-fun and heterosexuals are stupid; or the cult of the multi-cult, in which nothing is good or bad, and all historical experiences 'the same', with the exception of the Western experience which is very, very bad indeed. [Sargon's victory stele]


Where does the madness of the modern set of cults lead to ? Destruction. Great empires in times past collapsed due to the bankruptcy of the state, resplendently offered in the insolvency of finance, ideas, culture and the derivatives associated with merging the church [of socialism, the multi-cult, activism] with the state to deny free-will, individualism, and freedom, to both succeed and fail. Islam is a notable cult failure due to many reasons, not the least of which is the merger of the church with the state and the disavowal of free-will and individual human worth [only the Allah thing has free-will and worth, you must simply submit to it].


Modern state-funded cults imitate the incoherence, intolerance and dysfunctional nature of Islam. Criticize the cult of warm and you will be branded. Object to gay marriage and you are slandered. Defend wealth and job creation and you are a heartless Hitlerite [the cult of Hitler was of course a national-socialist pagan cult, which destroyed civil society, the church, the individual, and which controlled all aspects of life, including the creation and support of 'green technology]. Pronounce against anything 'green' and you desire the liquidation of the earth mother. Propose market based solutions for health and education, and you slaver for the annihilation of the children's future, and that all the sick and wounded would immediately perish [irony: socialized health care kills thousands each year due to waiting lists and lack of access....]. Disagree with the ponzi plundering to fund old age pensions and you of course want every single aged person to eat dog food and die at age 65. Such claims are deemed 'moderate' and 'nuanced' by the media and deeply intelligent by most university profs.


Culture is King and that is the first to fall. From reading books to American Idol and the incorruptible stupidity of modern entertainment is an example of cultural destruction. It does not take long to become a largely gamma-wave resistant society. So much easier to indoctrinate if the mental processes approach that of sleeping or unconsciousness. Eviscerating knowledge and substituting mindless, somnolent mental non-exercise, is one clear path to control. Keep the masses busy with their mindless entertainment, while the cults are created step by painful step. Regulate, tax, control, propagandize. Target the children. The Nazi and Soviet socialist cults were exceptional at doing this.


A Nazi 'childrens' story about the Fox [the Jew] and why Germans [today substitute Arab, Moslem], must hate the Jew:

Look, children, and the two compare,
The German and the Jew.
Take a good look at the two
In the picture drawn for you.
A joke — you think it is only that? 
Easy to guess which is which, I say:
The German stands up, the Jew gives way.
The German is a proud young man,
Able to work and able to fight.
Because he is a fine big chap,
For danger does not care a rap,
The Jew has always hated him!
Here is the Jew, as all can see,
Biggest ruffian in our country;
He thinks himself the greatest beau 
And yet is the ugliest, you know!

Or 'the child with Lenin'. The friendly 'father' Lenin, happy with his disciple, the eager Soviet student.


Apologists for both the socialist cult of the German Nazi state; and that of the Russian communal utopia, would declare that such propaganda was entirely 'scientific', founded upon 'consensus' and irreducible in its historical veracity. Of course the Jew was a monkey [read the Koran]. Of course the Soviet student must support the supremacist cult of Father Vlad. Of course the state is loving and caring. Of course there is 'warming'. Of course the rich need to plundered, if not killed.


Of course the Jew is the problem in the Middle East, not the Arab or Moslem. Of course the United Nations is an objective, fair group of angels playing harps. Of course the human is a virus and a disease. Of course abortion is a female 'right'. Of course socialized health care is a general right [except for murdered fetuses]. Of course gay-sex is 'gene induced'. Of course climate has never changed. Of course natural selection and Darwinism are facts [they are still just theories without proof].


On and on it goes with the modern cults. Socialist scientism, the cult of warm, the cult of Darwin, and the cult of the multicultural declaim today the same verities as their progenitors in Germany and Russia.
