Magical Thinking and Malignant Narcissism: The Satanic Mindset of America's Ruling Class

During his commencement address at Harvard more than thirty years ago, former atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn offended the narcissistically inflated sensibilities of America’s up-and-coming “ruling class” aspirants when he warned that America was tilting towards evil.  This tilt toward evil was occurring because America’s ruling class and intelligentsia had rejected the Triune God and embraced instead evolutionary humanism, scientism, and the dream of building a socialist utopia (also known as social justice).  All together, these evil ideas are the demonic revolutionary politics of hatred, destruction and death.

According to Jamie Glazov,, the former Soviet Union possessed many imaginative mechanisms to deal with the problem of enemies of the people who obstructed the path to socialist utopia or social justice:

"One of those mechanisms was the practice of confining individuals who were thinking the wrong thoughts to insane asylums. Indeed, if you caused any trouble for the commissars, a good inoculation of neuroleptics (powerful drugs used to “quiet” the symptoms of schizophrenia), forcibly administered through a tube in the nose, could do wonders in bringing your politically incorrect behavior to a halt.”  (The Democrats’ Soviet Insane Asylum for Trump, Jamie Glazov, Frontpage Magazine, July 7, 2017)

Today’s progressive Democrats are also faithfully journeying on a Soviet-style odyssey:

" Horrified by Trump’s opposition to Obama’s “fundamental transformations,” they have found their own neuroleptics in the form of the 25th Amendment and a bill seeking to impeach the president for being mentally unsound. Indeed, Trump has to be mentally deranged and unfit for office, because what other reason could possibly explain his frightening disagreement with the Left’s un-American creed of identity politics -- race and gender uber alles? What other factor could possibly be at play in his embrace of individual freedom and responsibility -- and in his rejection of group privileges and racial/gender hierarchies that, as David Horowitz has noted, can only be manifested after America’s Constitution is null and void?” (ibid)

The left’s creed – identity politics –  rejects the idea of the one human race created by Elohim together with the fall, individual accountability and individual freedom, and establishes in their place group privileges based on the spurious idea of a genetically evolved racial/gender hierarchy  consisting of many distinct races and genders:

“These hierarchies are based on the malicious premise that whites, heterosexuals and males are oppressors and - in the words of the Democratic platform - America is a society governed by “systemic racism,” which needs to be fundamentally transformed.”  (The War Against Trump, David Horowitz, Frontpage Magazine, March 8, 2017)

Here's how retired Marine Lt. Colonel Oliver North describes the 'new' Socialist States of America, where according to the U.S. government North is not only a racist but an extremist because:

I am a Christian and meet regularly with other Christians to study Gods word.  My faith convinces me the prophecies in the Holy Bible are true. I believe in the sanctity of life, oppose abortion and want to preserve marriage as the union of a man and woman.  I am a veteran with skills and knowledge from military training and combat.  I own several firearms, frequently shoot them, buy ammunition and consider efforts to infringe on my Second Amendment rights to be wrong and unconstitutional. I frequently support the sovereignty of the United States, am deeply concerned about our economy, increasingly higher taxes, illegal immigration, soaring unemployment and actions by our government that will bury my children beneath a mountain of debt.  Apparently, all this makes me a 'right-wing extremist.'  At least that's what it says in the April 7, 2009 'assessment' issued by the Office of Intelligence and Analysis at the Department of Homeland Security."  (The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture, David Kupelian, pp. 14-15)

Identity politics was spawned by cultural determinism.  In its turn, cultural determinism was birthed by the Darwinian idea that man is an ape of evolution, therefore his identity is determined  for example, by his skin color or his sexual and/or erotic appetites.  This proposition rejects the concepts of the human soul/spirit, personhood, individuality, free will, and morally informed conscience (paired with personal accountability and responsibility) because it emphatically denies the existence of the Creator God of the Bible.  (Cultural Marxism, L. Kimball, American Thinker, Feb., 2007)

Consequently, and by extension, it also rejects the first principles of our liberty enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.  These are our "unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”    Revolutionary politics reject these because these principles of liberty "are endowed by our Creator," who made man in His image.

Thirty years ago Solzhenitsyn clearly saw that the God-hating, socialist-utopia seeking faith of the ruling class and its apostate clergy had already produced a spiritual, moral, and intellectual sickness responsible for replacing traditional freedom for the good, true and right with destructive freedom that makes society defenseless against human decadence and criminality.  America, said Solzhenitsyn, is traveling the same highway to hell taken previously by the Russians.

 What gave his message its unassailable integrity, courage and force is that he spoke from the hellish crucible of the Soviet death camps. His message was:

”Look what happened when a godless regime takes over. Let our experience teach you not to continue on your current path of trying to live without God.” (Alexander Solzhenitsyn: A Prophet to the World, Aug. 2008, heedingthetimes.net)

Like Solzhenitsyn, Natan Sharansky also spoke from the hellish crucible of the godless Soviet Union where dissidents (heretics) were killed immediately.  

Toward the goal of absolute control over the wills and minds of the masses, evolutionary humanists wielded terroristic mind-control tactics such as propaganda of the lie (i.e., 2+2=5; God is dead; no one believes in Jesus Christ anymore), redefinition of words (more lies), revised history (more lies), brain altering drugs, conditioned atheism through the teaching of Darwinism (occult science magic), and terror-and-confusion inducing political correctness in the form of fear-inducing hate crime laws and speech codes (inverted pseudo-morality) to create a climate of confusion, paranoia and fear.  In this climate of fear and confusion, everyone became double thinkers who said the same thing (i.e., accused the innocent of bogus sins such as racism and homphobia), seemingly wanted and believed in the same things (i.e., global warming, open borders, homosexuality, and Sharia), and voted the same way.   But this was an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth, hence double-thinkers,

 "…..live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many don't even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the "town square test." In this test, if you can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society.  However, if you are punished for expressing your views, such as the traditional view of marriage being for one man and one woman, then you live in a fear society.  In such societies there are always three types of population:

"True believers, who accept the ideology...dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts or disagreements about the official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly."  The level "of dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

Measured by Sharanskys' town-square test we can see that America is already a three-tiered fear-based society consisting of an inner ring, an elitist ruling class (Ba'al and Gaia worshippers), a somewhat larger outer ring consisting of true-believers who willingly embrace and enforce lies in order to be accepted, privileged, enriched and empowered to persecute, hound and blackmail the much larger outer ring of miserable, self-hating double-thinkers.  Operating around the outer edges are the dissidents: truth-tellers most resistant to mind control.

The real source of evil is the elitist inner circle, a parasitic confederacy of god-men described by Professor Angelo Codevilla as America’s Ruling Class:

Today’s ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits. These amount to a social canon of judgments about good and evil, complete with secular sacred history, sins (against minorities and the environment), and saints. Using the right words and avoiding the wrong ones when referring to such matters — speaking the “in” language — serves as a badge of identity. Regardless of what business or profession they are in, their road up included government channels and government money because, as government has grown, its boundary with the rest of American life has become indistinct. Many began their careers in government and leveraged their way into the private sector. Some, e.g., Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, never held a non-government job. Hence whether formally in government, out of it, or halfway, America’s ruling class speaks the language and has the tastes, habits, and tools of bureaucrats. It rules uneasily over the majority of Americans not oriented to government.” (America’s Ruling Class---and the Perils of Revolution, Codevilla, July/Aug. 2010, The American Spectator)

The faith of America’s Ruling Class rests on three pillars of sand: humanism, evolution, and will to power disguised as science.   The two most important  are science and Darwinism and the third, an arrogant assumption of god-like superiority enabled and empowered by the first two.  Codevilla summarizes this attitude as “we” are the best and brightest while the rest of Americans are unevolved humanoids, hence,

 “…retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly constrained.” (ibid)

Despite America’s  pervasive spiritual, moral, and intellectual pathology most Americans still retain faith in God (more or less) thus some sense of right and wrong, while the  Ruling Class are amoral malignant narcissists---hard-hearted, conscienceless  moral imbeciles who view themselves as gods. 

How did this sick, twisted god-man attitude replace the Founding generation’s belief that “all men are created equal” because the spiritual image bearers of the living, personal Holy Triune God?  Codevilla writes that by the 1820s,

“… J. C. Calhoun was reading in the best London journals that different breeds of animals and plants produce inferior or superior results, slave owners were citing the Negroes’ deficiencies to argue that they should remain slaves indefinitely. Lots of others were reading Ludwig Feuerbach’s rendition of Hegelian philosophy, according to which biblical injunctions reflect the fantasies of alienated human beings or, in the young Karl Marx’s formulation, that ethical thought is “superstructural” to material reality. By 1853, when Sen. John Pettit of Ohio called “all men are created equal” “a self-evident lie,” much of America’s educated class had already absorbed the “scientific” notion (which Darwin only popularized) that man is the product of chance mutation and natural selection of the fittest. Accordingly, by nature, superior men subdue inferior ones as they subdue lower beings or try to improve them as they please….As the 19th century ended, the educated class’s religious fervor turned to social reform: they were sure that because man is a mere part of evolutionary nature, man could be improved, and that they, the most highly evolved of all, were the improvers.” (ibid)

As their numbers grew and their narcissism inflated,

“… so did their distaste for common Americans. Believing itself “scientific,” this Progressive class sought to explain its differences from its neighbors in “scientific” terms. The most elaborate of these attempts was Theodor Adorno’s widely acclaimed The Authoritarian Personality (1948). It invented a set of criteria by which to define personality traits, ranked these traits and their intensity in any given person on what it called the “F scale” (F for fascist), interviewed hundreds of Americans, and concluded that most who were not liberal Democrats were latent fascists. This way of thinking about non-Progressives filtered down to college curricula. In 1963-64 for example, I was assigned Herbert McCloskey’s Conservatism and Personality (1958) at Rutgers’s Eagleton Institute of Politics as a paradigm of methodological correctness. The author had defined conservatism in terms of answers to certain questions, had defined a number of personality disorders in terms of other questions, and run a survey that proved “scientifically” that conservatives were maladjusted ne’er-do-well ignoramuses. “(ibid)  

Far from being the rational, scientifically enlightened, forward-thinking free-thinkers they imagine themselves, America’s Ruling Class are magic thinkers.   Respected Conservative Christian writer Frederick J. Hutchinson connects magical thinking with narcissism.  These two spiritual sicknesses go together like a dung-beetle on its’ pile.

 Hutchinson characterizes magical thinking with the ridiculous proverb that if a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, it makes no noise, meaning that if a narcissist did not see or hear the tree fall then it did not fall since whatever the narcissist thinks, covets, envies, hates, or lusts after is the absolute meaning of reality at any given moment.  By extension of this insanity, if a narcissist hates God the Father then He does not exist, if he worships science and evolution then so must we all, and if he cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or detect his own soul in any way then souls do not exist. (Restoring History, Hutchinson, pp. 80-81)

Though the intellects of America’s ruling narcissists are intact, their conscience is depraved and their reason warped and perverted, thus useless for the pursuit of virtue.  They are spiritually dead, their wills turned toward evil and their materialized souls inward-and-downward turned away from God and His Light into the darkness and infinite smallness of ‘self’ and imaginations run wild.

This is why the Ruling Class advance deceptions like evolution, and climate change as 'facts' of science   And because they hate the “retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional” masses in the great flyover zones of America, especially the white, straight ones in the Bible Belt,  they sympathetically  support bogus theories such as Critical Theory, White Privilege, and Critical Race Theory and bogus rights such as choice, euthanasia, sodomy, same-sex marriage, perverse sex-education, universal healthcare, and Sharia because in reality all of these theories and ‘rights’ ultimately unleash forces of destruction and death upon the hated masses in one way or another.

From the Renaissance to our own time, every step of the systematic downfall of Christendom and Protestant America has been led by arrogant, defiant narcissists who have deliberately fostered corruption, unfettered sin, and an entitlement mentality among Americans so that today narcissism and magical thinking are at epidemic proportions at every level of society.

Dr. Carl Raschke is an internationally known writer and academic scholar who for the past decade has been researching and explaining the effects of America’s apostasy from God and its’ corollary, narcissism and magical thinking, which Raschke combines into what he calls a Satanist Mindset.  This mindset is a mystification of the most corrupt passions and inverted values of magical thinkers.   It is the spiritual Frankenstein,

“…created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

 A Satanic Mindset has gained a virtual chokehold on the levers of power and influence from the White House to Hollywood, academia, certain corporations, the media, the Supreme Court, Congress, and apostatizing seminaries and pulpits.

 While our Satanically-minded Ruling Class see the signs of corruption and insanity over-spreading our nation as signs of progress, some Americans choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to what is going on while still others foresee only disaster.  Solzhenitsyn however, holds out  our only hope,  to a weary, spiritually disconsolate people.  In his 1983 Templeton Prize address, “Men Have Forgotten God,” he stated,

All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we redirect our consciousness, in repentance, to the Creator of all; without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain.”

The Battle for the Soul of America

In "Albert Mohler and RC Sproul start historic debate over geology, evolution and the age of the earth," Tas Walker reports that a huge battle is finally shaping up within evangelical circles over the authority of the Bible, a debate that will spill into the wider community and impact scientific, geological and academic realms. (biblicalgeology.net)
 
Well before evangelicals entered the battle, the Orthodox Priest Seraphim Rose had thoroughly deconstructed evolution in his opus magnum "Genesis, Creation, and Early Man."   Since then the Roman Catholic "Kolbe Center for Study of Creation" has stepped up to the front line of the battle.  The Kolbe Center roots their apologetics in the true doctrine of special creation, supported by sound arguments from theology, philosophy and natural science in the hope that the demonstration of the bankruptcy of molecules-to-man evolution and the reasonableness of special creation will allow practical atheists to be able to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the claims of the Catholic Church.
 
The compromise within the whole body of the church is broad and deep, encompassing Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and the entirety of the Protestant church.  The battle is shaping up to be fierce due to the vast numbers of evolutionary compromisers within the whole body of the church whose stubborn pride, ignorance and apathy will prove to be a formidable opponent, one willing to reject and spiritually crucify defenders of special creation.

Though evolutionists mistakenly believe that creationists have entered the battle because they fear that 'science' affirms evolution this is not what causes creationists to dig in, said Walker:  
 
"It’s a committment to the truth. Many people, when they become aware of the logical contradictions between evolution and the gospel, can be alerted to the fact that there is a problem with evolution and long ages. That can motivate them to reconsider their uncritical acceptance of evolution."
 
In other words, committed Creationists have a heart for Truth that allows them to see for example, that the logical contradictions existing between the gospel and evolution are because the latter are the satanic antithesis of the gospel.  Whereas the gospel is the Revealed Word of God declaring creation and that the historical Adam was a male human person right from the start, the science of evolution is a key occult pagan Mystery doctrine stretching back to Babylon bespeaking alchemical transformism of one kind of thing to another kind:

 "[I]f one should search carefully, he will find that their doctrine is of necessity brought down to this. They tell us that one of their sages said that he, being one and the same person, was born a man, and afterward assumed the form of a woman, and flew about with the birds, and grew as a bush, and obtained the life of an aquatic creature—and he who said these things of himself did not, so far as I can judge, go far from the truth, for such doctrines as this—of saying that one should pass through many changes—are really fitting for the chatter of frogs or jackdaws or the stupidity of fishes or the insensibility of trees" (Gregory of Nyssa, The Making of Man 28:3; A.D. 379).

Evolutionary transformism appeared in the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance when certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered alchemical Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritualistic spiritual evolution.
 
This is affirmed by G. H. Pember in his classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages." Pember thoroughly examines the role of fallen angels in connection with the magic (evolutionary transformism) they taught to pre-flood generations and compares them to the explosion of spiritism (open intercourse with evil spirits), astrology, the Mysteries and other occult traditions sweeping over Christendom.

Pember writes that the Mysteries are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the powerful occult brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

"...to the initiates of the Hermetic, Orphic, Eleusinian, and Cabbalistic mysteries, and were familiar to Chaldean Magi, Egyptian Priests, Hindu Occultists, Essenes, Therapeutae Gnostics, and Theurgic Neo-Platonists." (Pember, pp.243-244)
 
Further affirmation is provided by the highly respected Orientalist metaphysician Rene Guenon (1886-1951)  in "The Spiritist Fallacy," his brilliant critical analysis of the Theosophy and Spiritism sweeping over Christendom. 

Guenon writes that in early Theosophist and spiritist (mediums/channelers) circles use of the word 'progress' or 'progressivist' preceded the use of the word 'evolution.' The roots of Theosophy, hence of evolution, stretch back to Babylon and thence to the ancient Upanishads of India and Mysteries of ancient Greece.  In its modernist version,  evolution describes the alchemical transformation and progress (reincarnation) of soul as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different kinds of beings over the course of thousands or even millions and billions of years.

Eventually the word evolution became preferred, especially by God-hating empirical realists and materialists like Karl Marx because it had a more 'scientific' allure:

"This kind of 'verbalism'...provides the illusion of thought for those incapable of really thinking..." wrote Guenon. (ibid, p. 231)

Guenon entitled his book "The Spiritist Fallacy" because modernist 'Christians' were receiving channeled messages from spirits who were teaching them the mysteries of spiritual evolution. Thus he defines progress, progressivism, and evolution as satanic and adherents as unconscious Satanists because for the most part their hubris and ignorance blind them to the extreme dangers of the "infernal fire" they play with:

"..every theory that notably disfigures the Divinity should in some measure be regarded as satanic; and conceptions of a limited God and of a God who evolves should here be placed in the front rank...." Thus "evolutionism" in general and Modernist "conceptions" in particular are satanic. The 'immanentist' Christ-force of the Liberal Church is satanic because it "openly submits the Divinity to becoming." (ibid, p. 257)
 
Though Guenon was not a Christian, he nevertheless described the outpouring of spiritism in distinctly Biblical terms.  What can be the meaning of this, he asked, but the rise of the Antichrist spirit?
 
"The coming struggle will emerge within the churches themselves; it will be precipitated by the enlightened (progressive) elements...the fight will then spread to thinking men and women everywhere who — in a protesting revolt — have denied orthodox churchianity and theology." (Spirit Master Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, Externalization of the Hierarchy, pp. 453-454)

By the turn of the century, the beginnings of a counter-initiatic hierarchy of "enlightened progressive"  theologians and intellectuals had arisen and the evolutionary "abomination of desolation," having already descecrated much of old-line Protestantism, now crept into the Catholic Church.

Pope Pius X noted with alarm that progressive "thinking" was taking hold of the contemporary mind, and in that way taking possession of Western civilization, including Catholic laity and priests. The Pope defined progressivism as "Modernism" and in 1907 declared it and its primary doctrine evolution a synthesis of heresies in the encyclical called 'Pascendi Dominici Gregis."

The Pope noted that Modernist "Christian" heretics were claiming that Christ is in us (pantheist monism) and that through evolution an immanentist Christ-force progressed and/or "emanated from nature spontaneously and of itself."  

Since evolution implies continuous change, transformation, and/or progress, "Christian" heretics claim that immutable (unchanging) truths do not exist, therefore there is nothing immutable in the Revealed Word of God, the Bible or the Church....or for that matter in Americas' Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law. All are subject to change, for in that evolution conceptually dissolves the living Word God incarnate (John 1:1) into nature, it also dissolves His image in man (personhood) into nature, hence man becomes the conscious product of evolution rather than the spiritual image bearer of God, making man and everything else imaginatively infused with impersonal divine spirit, power, intent, determinism (fate), and motion. Thus claim heretics, Christian theism itself lives and evolves, and "must in fact be changed."
 
As ‘living' Christianity has nearly evolved itself out of existence, science and the ‘god’ Evolution have progressed upward and now absolutely trump the Authoritative Word of God (John 1:1):

"Evolution is no longer viewed as a mindless affair, quite the opposite. It is mind enlarging its domain up the chain of species."  The god Evolution is the “universe...a mind that oversees, orchestrates, and gives order and structure to all things."   (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)
 
After more than eighty years of evolutionary evangelization in the schools, media, seminaries, academia and elsewhere,  depersonalized conscious products of the god Evolution no longer feel themselves to be guests,
 
”..... in someone's else's home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves. for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever.” (ibid)

 The occult science of evolution is the evil religion of America's Ruling Class, a 'highly evolved' elitist left-right class of god-men, gurus, transcended masters, light-bearers and assorted moral imbeciles in general who dominate both political parties, our economy, military, media, Hollywood, judicial system, science, academia, many seminaries and pulpits.  
 
Their evil religion rests on four pillars of sand.   The two most important  are magic science and the 'god' Evolution, the third is relativism, and the fourth, an arrogant assumption of god-like superiority, is enabled and empowered by the first two.  In "America’s Ruling Class---and the Perils of Revolution," Angelo Codevilla summarizes their superior attitude as “we” are the best and brightest while the rest of Americans are un-evolved hominids, hence,

 “…retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly constrained.” ( July/Aug. 2010, The American Spectator)

Far from being the rational, scientifically enlightened, superior free-thinkers they imagine themselves to be, America’s Ruling Class are moral imbeciles and/or magical thinkers.   Respected Conservative Christian writer Frederick J. Hutchinson connects magical thinking with narcissism.  These two spiritual sicknesses go together like a dung-beetle on its’ pile.

 Hutchinson characterizes magical thinking with the ridiculous proverb that if a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, it makes no noise, meaning that if a narcissist did not see or hear the tree fall then it did not fall since whatever the narcissist thinks, covets, envies, hates, or lusts after is the absolute meaning of reality at any given moment.  By extension of this insanity, if a narcissist hates God the Father then He does not exist, if he worships science and evolution then so must we all, and if he cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or detect his own soul in any way then souls do not exist. (Restoring History, Hutchinson, pp. 80-81)
 
Though the intellects of America’s ruling narcissists are intact, their conscience is depraved and their reason warped and perverted, thus intellect is useless for the pursuit of virtue.  The Ruling Class are spiritually dead, their materialized souls inward-turned away from God and His Light into the darkness and infinite smallness of idolatrous ‘self’ hence their wills are turned to wickedness.
 
This is why the Ruling Class constantly advance deceptions like science magic, evolution, sustainable growth, carbon footprints, and global change.   And because they hate the “retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional” masses in the great flyover zones of America, they sympathetically  support bogus “new” rights such as choice, euthanasia, sodomy, ‘gay’ marriage, perverse sex-education, universal healthcare, drugs, pornography, obscenity and Sharia because in reality all of these ‘rights’ ultimately unleash forces of destruction upon the hated masses in one way or another.
 
From the Renaissance to our own time, every step of the systematic downfall of Christian based Western civilization has been led by arrogant, defiant narcissists in rebellion against the Triune God who have deliberately fostered lies, corruption, hate, envy, narcissism, and an entitlement mentality among Americans so that today narcissism and magical thinking are at epidemic proportions at every level of society---even within churches.

At its founding and for 150 years after America was the world’s beacon of freedom and hope because it was founded on unchanging truths such as “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. . .”

Now however, a typical high school graduate no longer believes that anyone knows ‘the’ truth or even can know the truth. For him, anyone who claims to know the truth is a bigoted fundamentalist because he knows that human beings were never created but evolved. Evolution endows nothing, neither soul/spirit, personhood and unalienable rights nor the freedom to exercise them because man is nothing more than an aspect of nature.  Very briefly, this is the battle for America's soul.

Where the fighting is fiercest however, is right at the frontline where Truth warriors (Special Creationists) are waging a fierce battle against conscious and unconscious servants of Satan and the evil religion of evolution.

If the soul of America is to have any chance of survival, then reformation must begin in the whole body of the church before it will spill over and transform America.

Magical Thinking and Narcissism: The Satanic Mindset of America's Ruling Class

During his commencement address at Harvard more than thirty years ago, former atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn offended the narcissistically inflated sensibilities of America’s up-and-coming “ruling class” aspirants when he warned that America was tilting towards evil because its’ ruling class and intelligentsia have rejected the Triune God and embraced instead evolutionary humanism, scientism, and socialism, the revolutionary politics of destruction and death.

Solzhenitsyn clearly discerned that the God-hating faith of the ruling class and its apostate clergy had already produced a spiritual, moral, and intellectual sickness responsible for replacing traditional freedom for the good, true and right with destructive freedom that makes society defenseless against human decadence and criminality.  America, said Solzhenitsyn, is traveling the same highway to hell taken previously by the Russians.

 What gave his message its unassailable integrity, courage and force is that he spoke from the hellish crucible of the Soviet death camps. His message was:

”Look what happened when a godless regime takes over. Let our experience teach you not to continue on your current path of trying to live without God.” (Alexander Solzhenitsyn: A Prophet to the World, Aug. 2008, heedingthetimes.net)

Like Solzhenitsyn, Natan Sharansky also spoke from the hellish crucible of the godless Soviet Union where dissidents (heretics) were killed immediately.  

Toward the goal of absolute control over spirit, soul and body, evolutionary humanists wielded terroristic mind-control tactics such as propaganda of the lie (i.e., 2+2=5; God is dead; no one believes in Jesus Christ anymore), redefinition of words (more lies), revised history (more lies), brain altering drugs, conditioned atheism through the teaching of Darwinism (occult science magic), and terror-and-confusion inducing political correctness in the form of fear-inducing hate crime laws and speech codes (inverted pseudo-morality) to create a climate of confusion, paranoia and fear in which everyone became double thinkers who said the same thing, seemingly wanted the same things, and voted the same way.   But this was an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth, hence double-thinkers,

 "…..live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many don't even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the "town square test." In this test, if you,

“….can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society" even though that society may not be just.

(The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)

Measured by Sharanskys' town-square test we can see that America is quickly devolving into a three-tiered fear-based society consisting of an inner ring, an elitist ruling class (Ba'al and Gaia worshippers), a somewhat larger outer ring consisting of wanna-be elitists---true-believers who willingly embrace lies in order to be accepted, privileged, enriched and empowered to persecute, hound and blackmail the much larger outer ring of miserable double-thinkers.  Operating around the outer edges are the dissidents: truth-tellers most resistant to mind control.

The real source of evil is the elitist inner circle, a parasitic confederacy of god-men described by Professor Angelo Codevilla as America’s Ruling Class:

Today’s ruling class, from Boston to San Diego, was formed by an educational system that exposed them to the same ideas and gave them remarkably uniform guidance, as well as tastes and habits.

Using the right words and avoiding the wrong ones when referring to such matters — speaking the “in” language — serves as a badge of identity. Regardless of what business or profession they are in, their road up included government channels and government money because, as government has grown, its boundary with the rest of American life has become indistinct. Many began their careers in government and leveraged their way into the private sector. Some, e.g., Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, never held a non-government job. Hence whether formally in government, out of it, or halfway, America’s ruling class speaks the language and has the tastes, habits, and tools of bureaucrats. It rules uneasily over the majority of Americans not oriented to government.” (America’s Ruling Class---and the Perils of Revolution, Codevilla, July/Aug. 2010, The American Spectator)

The faith of America’s Ruling Class rests on three pillars of sand.   The two most important  are magic science and Darwinism and the third, an arrogant assumption of god-like superiority enabled and empowered by the first two.  Codevilla summarizes this attitude as “we” are the best and brightest while the rest of Americans are unevolved humanoids, hence,

 “…retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly constrained.” (ibid)

Despite America’s  pervasive spiritual, moral, and intellectual pathology most Americans still retain faith in God (more or less) thus some sense of right and wrong, while the  Ruling Class are malignant narcissists---hard-hearted, conscienceless  moral imbeciles who view themselves as gods. 

How did this sick, twisted god-man attitude replace the Founding generation’s belief that “all men are created equal” because the spiritual image bearers of the living, personal Holy Triune God?  Codevilla writes that by the 1820s,

“… J. C. Calhoun was reading in the best London journals that different breeds of animals and plants produce inferior or superior results, slave owners were citing the Negroes’ deficiencies to argue that they should remain slaves indefinitely. Lots of others were reading Ludwig Feuerbach’s rendition of Hegelian philosophy, according to which biblical injunctions reflect the fantasies of alienated human beings or, in the young Karl Marx’s formulation, that ethical thought is “superstructural” to material reality. By 1853, when Sen. John Pettit of Ohio called “all men are created equal” “a self-evident lie,” much of America’s educated class had already absorbed the “scientific” notion (which Darwin only popularized) that man is the product of chance mutation and natural selection of the fittest. Accordingly, by nature, superior men subdue inferior ones as they subdue lower beings or try to improve them as they please….As the 19th century ended, the educated class’s religious fervor turned to social reform: they were sure that because man is a mere part of evolutionary nature, man could be improved, and that they, the most highly evolved of all, were the improvers.” (ibid)

As their numbers grew and their narcissism inflated,

“… so did their distaste for common Americans. Believing itself “scientific,” this Progressive class sought to explain its differences from its neighbors in “scientific” terms. The most elaborate of these attempts was Theodor Adorno’s widely acclaimed The Authoritarian Personality (1948). It invented a set of criteria by which to define personality traits, ranked these traits and their intensity in any given person on what it called the “F scale” (F for fascist), interviewed hundreds of Americans, and concluded that most who were not liberal Democrats were latent fascists. This way of thinking about non-Progressives filtered down to college curricula. In 1963-64 for example, I was assigned Herbert McCloskey’s Conservatism and Personality (1958) at Rutgers’s Eagleton Institute of Politics as a paradigm of methodological correctness. The author had defined conservatism in terms of answers to certain questions, had defined a number of personality disorders in terms of other questions, and run a survey that proved “scientifically” that conservatives were maladjusted ne’er-do-well ignoramuses. “(ibid)  

Far from being the rational, scientifically enlightened, forward-thinking free-thinkers they imagine themselves, America’s Ruling Class are moral imbeciles and/or magical thinkers.   Respected Conservative Christian writer Frederick J. Hutchinson connects magical thinking with narcissism.  These two spiritual sicknesses go together like a dung-beetle on its’ pile.

 Hutchinson characterizes magical thinking with the ridiculous proverb that if a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, it makes no noise, meaning that if a narcissist did not see or hear the tree fall then it did not fall since whatever the narcissist thinks, covets, envies, hates, or lusts after is the absolute meaning of reality at any given moment.  By extension of this insanity, if a narcissist hates God the Father then He does not exist, if he worships science and evolution then so must we all, and if he cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or detect his own soul in any way then souls do not exist. (Restoring History, Hutchinson, pp. 80-81)

Though the intellects of America’s ruling narcissists are intact, their conscience is depraved and their reason warped and perverted, thus useless for the pursuit of virtue.  They are spiritually dead, their materialized souls inward-turned away from God and His Light into the darkness and infinite smallness of ‘self’ hence their wills are turned toward wickedness.

This is why the Ruling Class advance deceptions like science magic, evolution, and climate change. as 'facts' of science   And because they hate the “retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional” masses in the great flyover zones of America, especially those in the Bible Belt,  they sympathetically  support bogus “new” rights such as choice, euthanasia, sodomy, ‘gay’ marriage, perverse sex-education, universal healthcare, and Sharia because in reality all of these ‘rights’ ultimately unleash forces of destruction and death upon the hated masses in one way or another.

From the Renaissance to our own time, every step of the systematic downfall of Christendom and Protestant America has been led by arrogant, defiant narcissists who have deliberately fostered corruption, unfettered sin, and an entitlement mentality among Americans so that today narcissism and magical thinking are at epidemic proportions at every level of society.

Dr. Carl Raschke is an internationally known writer and academic scholar who for the past decade has been researching and explaining the effects of America’s apostasy from God and its’ corollary, narcissism and magical thinking, which Raschke combines into what he calls a Satanist Mindset.  This mindset is a mystification of the most corrupt passions and inverted values of magical thinkers.   It is the spiritual Frankenstein,

“…created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

 A Satanic Mindset has gained a virtual chokehold on the levers of power and influence from the White House to Hollywood, academia, certain corporations, the media, the Supreme Court, Congress, and apostatizing seminaries and pulpits.

 While our Satanically-minded Ruling Class see the signs of corruption and insanity over-spreading our nation as signs of progress, some Americans choose to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to what is going on while still others foresee only disaster.  Solzhenitsyn however, holds out  our only hope,  to a weary, spiritually disconsolate people.  In his 1983 Templeton Prize address, “Men Have Forgotten God,” he stated,

All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we redirect our consciousness, in repentance, to the Creator of all; without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain.”

Unconscious Satanism and the Infernal Outpouring

"I have said that the ultimate goal of spiritual growth is for the individual to become as one with God ... It is for the individual to become totally, wholly God….God wants us to become Himself (or Herself or Itself).”    (M. Scott Peck, “The Road Less Traveled”)

"Since the unconscious is God all along, we may further define the goal of spiritual growth to be the attainment of godhood by the conscious self."    (M. Scott Peck, “A Different Drum”)

In his chapter on Grace, Peck claims,

"All of us who postulate a loving God and really think about it eventually come to a single terrifying idea: God wants us to become Himself (Herself or Itself). We are growing toward godhood," (The Road Less Traveled, p. 269).

 "God" from Peck's perspective is not the living, personal Holy God, but a christ consciousness or other variation of a creative energy such as Kundalini or Evolution, the primary creative energy of the World Spirit, Brahman, or Divine One Substance that either pre-exists everything or has come into being from the Big Bang.   In either scenario, all being is at bottom one, or monistic.

Hiding beneath Peck’s claim that “God” wants us to become Himself, Herself, or Itself is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the correlation of the Divine One Substance with the mind of man: “As above, so below

Hermes Trismegistus is the father of the magic tradition.  His world-famous magic formula demonstrates the consubstantiality (oneness) of Herme's divine mind with the Divine One Substance above.  In teaching the meaning of the formula to his son Tat he said:

"The intellect, O Tat, is drawn from the very substance of God.  In men, this intellect is God, and so some men are gods and their humanity is near to divinity...If man makes right use of (God's gifts), he differs in no way from the immortals."  (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, p. 78)

Hermes Trismegistus had a guru, a spirit director called Poimander who taught Hermes that,

"Unless you make yourself equal to God, you cannot understand God, for the like is not intelligible save to the like." (ibid, p. 79)

From the time of the ancients, men have employed a variety of occult psycho-technologies such as mind-altering substances, hypnosis, yogic trance, transcendental meditation, ecstatic dance, drumming, and more recently, rock music…especially in combination with drugs, the Silva Method and deep-breathing exercises in the quest to become “one” with the “God substance” above:

“... I can be saved only by becoming one with the universe. Thereby, too, my deepest 'pantheist' aspirations It was especially the image of God which Teilhard saw in need of urgent redefinition. Modern man has not yet found the God he can adore, a God commensurate to the newly discovered dimensions of the universe” (Ursala King, "Towards a New Mysticism- Teilhard de Chardin and eastern religions" p.172)

 Our age of spreading apostasy is witnessing an explosive revival of this ancient occult phenomenon.  A major reason is that psychology allegedly provides us with a “scientific” explanation that ascribes whatever frightening entities are encountered while on drugs or through techniques such as taught in the Silva Method to archetypal images from the collective unconscious, a theory attributed to Carl Jung.

Jung's theory however, was precededby William James (1842-1910) theory of “religious experience.”  Referred to as the father of American psychology, James theorized that religious experience is a manifestation of the “subconscious,” the means by which man communicates with God “within.”

The theories of James are examples of unconscious Satanism as Rene Guenon (1886-1951), the great French traditionalist metaphysician explains in, “The Spiritist Fallacy,” a detailed expose of the Theosophy, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Spiritism overtaking the minds of modernist priests and intellectuals during Guenon’s lifetime.  

Guenon describes sophisticated enlightened theologians and like-minded individuals as those who cannot speak of the devil,

“….without a smile of disdain, or an even more contemptuous shrug of the shoulders.” (p. 252)

Their contempt is due to the fact that scientifically enlightened priests and intellectuals bought into the lie that Lucifer is not the devil but rather the “light-bearer.” They even go so far as to call him ‘the Great Creative Intelligence.’  Thus they invoke Lucifer and perform his cult, but in fact these people,

“…though in fact Satanists, are only unconsciously so, for they are mistaken as to the nature of the entity to whom they address their worship….It goes without saying that these ‘enlightened’ priests are all plainly modernists and that the spirit animating them is strangely similar to that affirmed in these lines.” (p. 254)

Guenon defines as ‘unconscious Satanism’ every “modern” conception that notably disfigures the living God, and in this sense, all theories of an 'evolver' God posited by evolutionary theologians and of a God who evolves must be placed in the front rank.  Archbishop Fulton Sheen provides us with an example of one of the devil’s “modern” conceptions:

Modern philosophy has seen the birth of a new nation of God…It is God in evolution. God ‘is’ not.  He ‘becomes.’  In the beginning was not the Lord, but in the beginning was ‘Movement.’   From this movement God is born by successive creations.  As the world progresses, He progresses; as the world acquires perfection, He acquires perfection. (Moreover) man is a necessary step in the evolution of God. Just as man came from the beast, God will come from man…” (Great Catholic Books Newsletter; Volume II, Number 2, Fulton J. Sheen Issue)

 Satanism, even when unconscious, is always characterized by a reversal of the normal order, and good and evil, and is the opposite of orthodox Christian doctrine.

In this sense, evolutionary conceptions are Satanic because they persuade people to believe that everything in nature is the fruit of a gradual upward progression from either pre-existing or self-generated matter rather than the fallen but nevertheless good creation of the living God Who spoke. 

Because infernal evolutionary conceptions reverse the normal order, their sweeping acceptance means that it is now difficult if not impossible for Americans and Westerners to conceive of the Genesis account creation ex nihilo as traditional Christianity taught, because if “God” has evolved from man who has evolved from beasts then perfection obviously lies somewhere in the future rather than in the past from which mankind fell.  As well, if after a Big Bang a limited God used evolution over vast periods of time before the appearance of hominids then God is responsible for the suffering and death of the millions of lifeforms preceding the hominids, making God the father of evil.  In this demonically inverted 'theology'  the “way” to perfection proposed by the devil obviously lies with the occult science of Hermetic magic and psycho-technologies whereby man’s salvation is achieved by becoming “one” with the Divine Substance, Omega Point, Brahman, or Singularity.

It is here that Guenon turns his attention to the theories of William James, which he classifies as unconscious Satanism for two reasons.   First, James theory of “religious experience” as a manifestation of the “subconscious” by which man communicates with the Divine “within” is only one step away from “condoning the practices of spiritism” (contact with spirits) with the further consequence of conferring on evil spirits an “eminently religious character.”

This has come to pass.  As just one example out of literally hundreds, there is New Age theologian David Spangler speaking of Lucifer as an ‘eminently religious character,’ a savior-spirit he correlates with Christ:

“The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one's own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into the New Age, which is the age of man's wholeness, each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness.”

“Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free, that is the Luciferic Initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.” (David Spangler, Reflections on the Christ, Findhorn Lecture Series, 3rd ed., 1981; p. 45)

The second reason James theory qualifies as unconscious Satanism is the notion that the subconscious puts man in contact with the Divine Substance “within” which puts God in an inferior state of being:

This then is a properly ‘infernal’ doctrine, a reversal of universal order, which is precisely what we call ‘Satanism.’  Guenon adds, “The devil is not only terrible, he is often grotesque…” (pp. 258-262)

From the Renaissance to our own time, a stunning spiritual transformation of consciousness has been transferring Western and American thinking away from the supernatural living Holy God and biblical religion and toward unconscious Satanism: the new pagan religion of evolution.

Under the new pagan religion, the animated god-force called evolution is the principle miracle-producing power of the cosmos and unconscious Satanists are evolution's conscious products who can now achieve ever-higher levels of consciousness by directing their own evolution by going “within.”

Some unconscious Satanists now claim that a powerful mechanism is presently available to man from aliens who will solve mankind's problems and conduct man to a new "cosmic" age. Aliens are busily transforming the consciousness of abductees and other Westerners and through them teaching evolution, monism, occult New Age philosophy, warning of a coming planetary apocalypse and denying the living Triune God, the supernatural dimension and Christian theism.

All of this has led French physicist and UFO researcher Dr. Jacques Vallee to conclude that something is happening to human consciousness that is causing a major shift in man's belief systems and his relationship to the concept of the invisible. Vallee believes that the same "powerful force' that influenced the human race in the past is influencing it again:

".....human belief...is being controlled and conditioned, man's concepts are being rearranged, and we may be headed toward a massive change of human attitudes toward paranormal abilities and extraterrestrial life." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 109)

In light of this, Vallee proposes the hypothesis that there is a control system,

"... for human consciousness...I am suggesting that what takes place through close encounters with UFOs is control of human beliefs, control of the relationship between our consciousness and physical reality, and that this control has been in force throughout history...." (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 158)

In occult terminology, transformation of consciousness is egregore, a concept representing a "thought form" or "collective group mind," resulting from a psychic entity influencing the thoughts of a group of people. However, egregore derives from the Greek word for "watchers," leading the French occult magician Eliphas Levi (1810-1875) to identify egregore with the fallen angel 'fathers' of the nephilim.

In Christian language, transformation of consciousness means demonic oppression and possession resulting from a "demonic outpouring.' Vallee's "powerful force" is really a new demonic outpouring being loosed by the devil and his legions, even within apostatizing Churches full of false converts, various occult rituals (yoga, 'new' contemplative prayer)  and devices (enneagram), corrupted Bibles and the bread of this world rather than heavenly manna:

There is a false ‘holy spirit’called Kundalini that has invaded the churches.  It is the same spirit that Hindus, yoga practitioners,and New Agers are familiarwith (the ‘serpent power’).  It is imparted by laying on of hands.  It, along with other unholy mocking spirits, began entering the ‘churches’ with the ‘Toronto Blessing’.  Another big doorway was Todd Bentley’s ‘Lakeland Revival’.  People, hungry for a move of God, went long distances to take part in these events, and to receive the spirit.  They then carried the spirit back to their home churches, and imparted it to others by laying on of hands…. If you believe you have received the Kundalini (or any other) spirit, then you need deliverance.  But don’t let that frighten you away from seeking the baptism of the Holy Spirit.” (Holy Spirit Baptism, dontbefooled666.wordpress.com)

Though a demonic outpouring overshadows our land, penetrating even into undiscerning, entertainment saturated and unfaithful Churches, hold tight to our Lord, He is our Rock:

And He said to me, 'It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son."  Revelation 21:4
