Communism, Socialism and Technocracy: Spiritual Diseases of Our Time

In 1919, Georg Lukacs became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun regime in Hungary. He immediately set plans in motion to de-Christianize Hungary. Reasoning that if Christian sexual ethics could be undermined among children, then both the hated (traditional) family and the Church would be dealt a crippling blow, Lukacs launched a radical sex education program in the schools. Sex lectures were organized and literature handed out which graphically instructed youth in free love (promiscuity) and sexual intercourse while simultaneously encouraging them to deride and reject Christian moral ethics, monogamy, and parental and church authority. All of this was accompanied by a reign of cultural terror perpetrated against parents, priests, and dissenters." "Hungary's youth, having been fed a steady diet of values-neutral (atheism) and radical sex education while simultaneously encouraged to rebel against all authority, easily turned into delinquents ranging from bullies and petty thieves to sex predators, murderers, and sociopaths." (Cultural Marxism, L. Kimball)

Today the "new" communism is Technocracy.  The world is being actively transformed by a totalitarian-minded global power elite and their minions who are raising up another utopia or Tower of Babel according to a very narrow economical/political/social philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:

"....Technocracy is being sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite led by David Rockefeller's and Zbigniew Brzezinski's Trilateral Commission....Originally started in the early 1930s, Technocracy is antithetical to every American institution that made us into the greatest nation on earth.  It eschews property rights, obsoletes capitalism, hates politicians and traditional political structures, and promises a lofty utopian dream made possible only if engineers, scientists, and technicians are allowed to run society. When Aldous Huxley penned Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw this wrenching transformation of society and predicted that the end of it would be a scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen." ( Preface, Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood)

But what are Fascist Socialism, Marxist Communism and Technocracy and what spiritual sickness compels men to play at being God?

At the deepest, most important level of all, totalitarian ideologies are really about the human condition after the Fall and the causes of evil and suffering as defined by fallen mankind.

From the moment that Adam and Eve were ushered out of paradise, men began complaining:

"Why must we die? Why must there be decay? Why must we work? Why does he have (fill in the blanks) but I do not? That's unfair! Why can't we say, do and have whatever we desire? If it feels good (libidinous impulses) then why shouldn't we do it? Why must there be authority, rules, norms, absolutes, and consequences? Why does it have to be this way? Why can't it be the way we want it to be?"

And finally: Who or what is the cause of our suffering?

From Nimrod to Karl Marx and contemporary rebels and apostates, the answer is the transcendent Authority of the Holy Triune God together with the fallen condition of man and the world:

"Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God." He "changed the government into tyranny" in order to turn them away from God and make them dependent upon his own power. He also would be revenged upon God "if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to be able to reach!" And he would "avenge himself on God for destroying their forefathers." (Jewish historian Josephus cited in" Who was Nimrod?" Dr. David Livingston)

Self-absorbed narcissists like Nimrod are impious.  They treat God the Father, their own parents and the culture that nourishes them with contempt. They attempt to usurp the authority of God, moral law, truth, family, and society as a means to their own ends.  In short, they are contemptuous toward the very things that make the good life possible for themselves and others, thus they try to control them and use them for their own selfish, destructive ends. 

Karl Marx, for example, dreamt of ruining the world created by the Holy God and proclaiming himself 'god.' In his poem "Human Pride," he writes that after ruining the world:

"I will wander godlike and victorious /Through the ruins of the world/ And, giving my words an active force/ I will feel equal to the Creator." (Marx and Satan, Richard Wurmbrand, pp. 30-31)

Marx's comrade in arms, Mikhail Bakunin, aligned himself with the Devil and declared:

"The Evil One is the satanic revolt against divine authority....Socialists recognize each other by the words, "In the name of the one to whom a great wrong has been done....Satan (is) the eternal rebel, the first freethinker and the emancipator of worlds." (Mikhail Bakunin, ibid, p. 27)

After confessing his 'cosmic authority' problem, New York University professor Thomas Nagel admits:

"I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers. It isn't just that I don't believe in God (but) that I hope there is no God! I don't want there to be a God; I don't want the universe to be like that." (The Rage Against God, Peter Hitchens, p. 150)

It is when the terrible-willed self-absorbed narcissists and their followers — most generally pleasure-seeking hedonists — become possessive of the things of this world and resentful of the "way things are" that they rebel against God the Father and raise up new Towers of Babel — separate paradises — here on earth. With Nimrod it was Babylon. Marx's Tower was the materialist Communist worker's paradise while Hitler's Babel was his socialist Third Reich. For homosexuals it's the Tower of Sodom and Gomorrah and for today's occult Technocratic New Age it's the coming of the final Tower — a planetary Scientific Dictatorship that will be philosophically Luciferian.

In the preface to "The Silmarillion," the all-important Book of Beginnings (genesis account) that sets the stage for the subsequent Lord of the Rings trilogy, J.R.R. Tolkien said of the terrible-willed:

".... (they) will rebel against the laws of the Creator — especially against mortality." Possessiveness toward the things of this world alone or together with hatred of death and decay "will lead to the desire for Power, for making the will more quickly effective — and so to the Machine (magic)." (p. xiii)

Tolkien defines magic as the abuse of God-given spiritual endowments such as intellect.  These spiritual attributes are empowered by another--will to power---fueled by the:

"corrupted motive of dominating: bull-dozing the real world, or coercing other wills" by way of ideologies designed for the unmaking of the world as it is.

In other words, when pride, wrath, lust and envy inflate to monstrous proportions it is then that the terrible-willed declare the death of God, usurp His powers, declare themselves gods and invent reality-denying ideologies such as socialism, scientism (magic science) and anti-creation evolutionism to confuse, deceive, transfix, seduce and coerce other wills:

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma. " (Anton Pannekoek, Marxism And Darwinism, Translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

And of course objective truth is absolutely forbidden lest it expose the corpus of lies, hate, hypocrisy, deceit and delusion underlying and fueling the 'Machine.'

On the subject of the Machine, Herbert Schlossberg perceptively observed:

"Exalting mankind to the status of deity...dates from the farthest reaches of antiquity, but its development into an ideology embracing the masses is a characteristic of modernity." (Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture, Herbert Schlossberg)

Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn described terrible-willed god-men as the masters of the world who, bearing no evil within themselves, have declared that all the evils of the world are caused not by man's fallen human condition but by deterministic external or natural causes — unjust, unfair systems.  In short, it is not the sinfulness of man but rather the world created by the Holy Trinity that is the true cause of man's suffering because it is the Holy Creator Who is fallen and evil.

So just what are "unjust systems?"  In his book, "Cry Havoc: The Great American Bring-Down and How it Happened," Ralph de Toledano identifies them:

"....the morality that derives from the Old and New Testaments, the traditional family, the respect for the past as a guide to the future, the restraint of man's baser instincts, and a socio-political organization which guaranteed freedom without license. Of these obstacles, the two greatest were God and the family." (p. 26)

Former atheist Peter Hitchens notes that throughout the West the God-hating Left's hostility to Christian theism is specific because orthodox Christianity:

"....is the religion of their own homes and homeland, the form in which they have encountered — and generally disliked and resented — the power of God in their own lives.....the Left sympathizes with Islam because (it is) the enemy of their (own enemy, the Christian culture)." (Hitchens, p. 131)

Hatred of the Holy Trinity issuing into hostility and intolerance of faithful orthodox Christianity is not confined to just the progressive Left but shared equally with GOP atheist insiders. Because of their hostility to God and Christianity they hold in utter contempt the middle-class, mainly Christian constituents they must rely upon to be re-elected.

Solzhenitsyn summarized the whole meaning of Fascism, Marxist Communism and Technocracy when he described their three main causes as rebellion against the Holy Trinity quickly followed by apostasy and denial of man's fallen condition, allowing rebels and apostates to comfortably "forget" that evil cuts right through the hearts of all men, themselves included.

Peter Hitchens writes that atheists and antitheists who have the good fortune to live in a society governed by religious belief:

".... feel free from absolute moral bonds, while those around them are not. This is a tremendous liberation for anyone who is even slightly selfish. And what clever person is not imaginatively and cunningly selfish?" (Peter Hitchens, p. 148)

Modern ideologies and the murderous utopian systems spawned by God-haters are spiritual delusions of fallen men.  It is impossible for man, within whom exists the ever present possibility of evil, to engineer a morally perfected New Man and New World Order devoid of evil without becoming fully evil himself and unleashing catastrophic evil as the 20th century attests. The only 'way' or cure is spiritual regeneration through submission to the Holy Trinity.

Pope Francis: First it was Anti-Creation Evolution. Now it's Phony Climate Change Science

In "Pope Francis: Climate Change is Real and Humans are Causing It," Mother Jones writer Jeremy Schulman reported with approvalthat Pope Francis relies upon science to inform his opinions about climate change. (Mother Jones, Jan. 15, 2015)

Global change science, just what is it and why do collectivists (globally socialist green pagans, Technocrats, Gaia-worshippers, Luciferians, et al) promote it?

Answer:
 
The goal now is a socialist, redistributionist society, which is nature’s proper steward and society’s only hope.” David Brower, founder of Friends of the Earth
 
Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”- Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Program

Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.” UN Agenda 21
 
“I envisage the principles of the Earth Charter to be a new form of the ten commandments. They lay the foundation for a sustainable global earth community.” – Mikhail Gorbachev, co-author of The Earth Charter
 
We are close to a time when all of humankind will envision a global agenda that encompasses a kind of Global Marshall Plan to address the causes of poverty and suffering and environmental destruction all over the earth.” Al Gore, Earth in the Balance
 
We have reached the critical moment of decision on climate change. Failure to act to now would be deeply and unforgivably irresponsible. We urgently require a global environmental revolution.” Tony Blair,former British PM
 
Climate change should be seen as the greatest challenge to ever face mankind.”Prince Charles
 
Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.” – Barack Obama,US President
 
Coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.” Harry Reid, U.S. Senate majority leader
 
By the end of this century climate change will reduce the human population to a few breeding pairs surviving near the Arctic.” – Sir James Lovelock, Revenge of Gaia
 
The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.” Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations
 
We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”- Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation
 
No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”- Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment
 
The world is being actively transformed by a spiritually pantheist occult Gnostic power elite and their minions according to a very narrow economical/political/social philosophy called Technocracy, and it is impacting every segment of society in every corner of the world:
 
“….Technocracy is being sponsored and orchestrated by a global elite led by David Rockefeller’s and Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Trilateral Commission….Originally started in the early 1930s, Technocracy is antithetical to every American institution that made us into the greatest nation on earth. It eschews property rights, obsoletes capitalism, hates politicians and traditional political structures, and promises a lofty utopian dream made possible only if engineers, scientists, and technicians are allowed to run society. When Aldous Huxley penned Brave New World in 1932, he accurately foresaw this wrenching transformation of society and predicted that the end of it would be a scientific dictatorship unlike anything the world has ever seen.” (ibid, Preface, Technocracy Rising, Patrick Wood)
 
According to Patrick Wood, our existing price-based economic system is being reinvented with new and untested ‘green’ economics theories such as carbon footprints. Carbon footprints supposedly equal the amount of carbon dioxide allegedly produced by driving your car, running your refrigerator and small appliances, and cutting your grass, for example. If you use too much, and your carbon footprint is too big, green Technocrats either want the government to punish you or ration the amount of energy you are allowed to receive. The ultimate goal is that the personal energy consumption of every human being should be closely monitored and controlled.
 
Steve Milloy, author of the book "Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life" opens with a brief summary of what the “Green Movement” is really all about:
 
Green ideologues are bursting with an impatient zeal to begin dictating, through force of law, your mobility, diet, home energy use, the size of your house, how far you can travel, and even … how many children you can have … this is how the greens themselves describe their intentions … Living green is really about some else micro-regulating you ­– downsizing your dreams and plugging each one of us into a brand new social order for which we never bargained. It’s about you living under the green thumb and having the boundaries of your life drawn by others.” (Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Control Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them, Steve Milloy p. 3)
 
There is a time for everything, including the weather, which changes seasonally and sometimes daily. The people most in touch with the vagaries of weather are those such as farmers, who live closest to nature. Their knowledge (scientia) is sensible and poses no threat to our flourishing as opposed to the phony science of global change/climate science, which if accepted without question means forceful imposition of a spiritually pantheist, communalistic totalitarian social order which was known as Marxist Communism during the 20th century. While 20th century Communists and Socialists annihilated in excess of one-hundred million men, women and children on behalf of their agenda today’s totalitarians speak in terms of billions. In order for spiritually pantheist totalitarians to “save the planet” billions of men, women, and children must die around the globe while America’s population must be reduced by millions.   

Just recently Pope Francis joined the growing ranks of anti-creation evolution-embracing theologians when he publically embracedevolution and chastised the faithful for holding fast to the Genesis account of creation.   Ideas have consequences, thus theologians who embrace anti-creation evolution are at a minimum serving as gatekeepers for the spiritually pantheist worldview, meaning they are not serving the Lord but the evil one in back of anti-creation evolution.  Once evolution is embraced it's just a few more downward steps to the embrace of phony climate change science and the hideous idea that humans are guilty of causing climate change for which genocide is the answer.    Yes indeed, ideas have consequences.

Americans: Depersonalized Mental Robots

Though Susan Mazur is an evolutionist, she nevertheless acknowledges the unresolvable problems surrounding evolution and natural selection in her book, “The Altenberg 16: An Expose of the Evolution Industry.”  Mazur writes that though a new wave of scientists are questioning the role of genes and natural selection the fact that the Darwin industry is "in bed with government" causes them to say nothing in public.  Mazur comments:
 
The commercial media is both ignorant of and blocks coverage of stories about non-centrality of the gene because its science advertising dollars come from the gene-centered Darwin industry. At the same time, the Darwin industry is also in bed with government, even as political leaders remain clueless about evolution. Thus, the public is unaware that its dollars are being squandered on funding of mediocre, middlebrow science or that its children are being intellectually starved as a result of outdated texts and unenlightened teachers.” (“Desperate attempts to discover ‘the elusive process of evolution,’ reviewed by Walter J. ReMine, Creation Ministries International, pp. ix, 20)

One clueless political leader is President Obama. In "Obama Logic? Racism is Genetic, Gender is a Choice,"  Cliff Kincaid, Director of the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism, reports that our pro-cross dressing President apparently doesn’t think people have DNA that makes them male or female. But he has just told an interviewer that white people and others do have DNA that makes them racist and that American institutions are racist, too. These claims are described by our media as “bold” rather than bizarre racial slurs:

"CNN reported that Obama, during an appearance on a comedy show, said “the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination” exists in institutions and casts “a long shadow and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.” The host, comedian Marc Maron, has been a guest on MSNBC, the failing left-wing cable channel."  (gopusa.com, June 23, 2015)

An incredulous Kincaid asked,

"Was Obama being serious? Where is the scientific evidence that racism is passed on to others through their DNA?"

As a 'scientifically enlightened' Progressive, Obama is very serious, though seriously ignorant and in company with both America's and W. Europe's depraved ruling class, possessed of a death-wish for their respective societies and a majority of their own countrymen.   

 Powerful Technocratic global socialists and America's progressive ruling class have made a faith out of evolution for three overriding reasons.  First, because they neither want the One God in three Persons to exist nor do they want to be created in His spiritual image.  Second, they do not want Original Sin, free will, immutable truth, moral absolutes, and hell to exist:
 
"The leading principle of Utopian religion is the repudiation of the doctrine of Original Sin."  H.G. Wells, A Modern Utopia, 1905
 
Thus they seek to replace two-dimensional super-naturalism with one-dimensional pagan and pantheist monism.  This leads to the following radical changes:

1. Replacement of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo with neo-pagan evolutionary cosmogonies

2. The Revealed Word with the worldly wisdom of god-men, thus power from Above with power from below and Immutable truth and Moral Law with moral relativism

3. God made them male and female with androgyny (the pagan ideal)

4. Resurrection with reincarnation, spiritual evolution and karma or natural selection

5. Biblical sexual ethics with pornography, sodomy, rape, incest, pedophilia, pederasty, zoophilia

6. The traditional family with alternative families

7. Private property with communalism; sovereignty with globalism and God-given individual rights with group privileges granted by Technocratic Masters of the Universe.

Darwinism has done all of this and more.  First, it has replaced the Genesis account with a geometricized, mathematical closed system, a cosmogony shaped and controlled by men; destroyed the foundations of supernatural Christianity, inverted the order of creation and depersonalized human beings: 
 
“Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin’s theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma.” (Anton Pannekoek, “Marxism and Darwinism,” translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

Second, in seeking a naturalistic mechanism for biological evolution Darwin destroyed the possibility of nature as a source of law when he enthroned randomness as the operational basis of nature.   In this way he revived the ancient pagan idea of chaos as regenerative.   Also known as a Cosmic Egg and today as the Big Bang, according to China's Pangu Legend

"In darkness and chaos, a cosmic egg is formed. Two forces — yin and yang — act on the egg, which cracks and gives birth to Pangu, a being who over thousands of years separates the sky and the Earth, and eventually becomes one with the universe (his head is the mountains, his breath the wind, his sweat the rain)."   (The Big Bang, and other explanations of universe, AP, online source yahoo.com, March 21, 2013 )
 
Then there is what may be described as an "elitist" tendency.   Like Darwin,  Western transnational progressive socialists are fueled by a strong desire to see themselves as 'better,' more 'highly evolved' than other people, thus Darwin's idea that if man came from apes then he can be treated like an ape is immensely gratifying to super inflated 'elite' egos whose depraved conscience justifies the depersonalization and abuse of others as the exercise of freedom in the furtherance of science.  Thus human apes can be experimented on, vivisected, tortured, sterilized involuntarily and made subject to infanticide, euthanasia, and other population control schemes as well as to the highly gratifying mind control techniques used by Communists on human guinea pigs.
 
It was close to fifty years ago that Rev. Richard Wurmbrand presented his testimony regarding Communist exploitation of Christianity, mind control experiments and physical torture before the Subcommittee to Investigate the Administration of the Internal Security Act and Other Internal Security Laws, of the Committee on the Judiciary, Washington, D.C. Also present were Senator Thomas J. Dodd presiding, Jay G. Sourwine, chief counsel; Benjamin Mandel, director of research; Frank W. Schroeder, chief investigator; and Robert C. McManus, investigations analyst.
 
Christians were psychologically and physically tortured in ways that mocked their faith said Wurmbrand.  In the first of two examples of monstrous evil, Wurmbrand describes how a young Christian was tied to a cross:
 
"Twice a day the cross was put on the floor and 100 other cell inmates by beating, by tortures, were obliged to fulfill their necessities upon his face and upon his body. Then the cross was erected again and the Communists swearing and mocking "Look your Christ, look your Christ, how beautiful he is, adore him, kneel before him, how fine he smells, your Christ." (Communist Exploitation of Religion, Congressional Testimony of Rev. Richard Wurmbrand)
 
In the second example Wurmbrand testified that after being beaten a Catholic priest was given a plate of excrement and one of urine and forced to say,
 
"...the holy mass upon these elements, and he did it. And I asked him afterward, 'Father, but how could you make this?'  He was half mad. He answered to me: 'Brother, I have suffered more than Christ. Don't reproach to me what I have done.' And the other prisoners beaten to take holy communion in this form, and the Communists around, 'Look, your sacraments, look, your church, what a holy church you have, what fine is your church, what holy ordinance God has given you." (ibid)
 
But these tortures were as nothing in comparison with brainwashing, said Wurmbrand.  They put psychotropic drugs "in our food" to completely break the "power of will" in order to produce "delirium of self-accusation" and to brainwash Christians.  In this drug-induced state suggestions were implanted within Christian minds:
 
"...communism is good," but "Christianity is dead, Christianity is dead, Christianity is dead. Nobody more believes in Christ, nobody more believes in Christ, you are the only fools....Your children hate you. You have nobody to love in the world. You are the only fools. Give up faith. Nobody is more Christians. Christianity is dead." (ibid)
 
From the start of the progressive satanic rebellion against the supernatural One God in three Persons, depraved 'elite' socialists have been in hot pursuit of mind, speech and behavior control techniques.    By 1928 they already formed an invisible controlling power. In his book, "Propaganda," (1928) Edward Bernays reveals their existence:
 
"Those who manipulate the organized habits and opinions of the masses constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of the country....The technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented." (The Psychological Conditioning of Americans, Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D., NewsWithViews.com, October 29, 2012)
 
Psychological manipulation was redefined as mental health and promoted by biological (naturalistic) psychiatry and the World Federation for Mental Health. But what is mental health, or more precisely, what is mental illness and what 'evil' force causes it?  Answer: Biblical morality and belief in right and wrong, said psychiatrist G. Brock Chisholm.  The Biblical concept of right and wrong produces perversions said Chisholm:
 
"We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents...Sunday and day school teachers, our politicians, our priests, our newspapers...The results...are frustration, inferiority, neurosis and inability to enjoy living...If the race is to be freed from its crippling burden of good and evil it must be psychiatrists who take the original responsibility." (The Underground History of American Education, John Taylor Gatto, p 282)
 
In 1951, British philosopher Bertrand Russell, an 'elite' atheist with strong leanings toward Epicurean materialism wrote that the science of manipulating the minds of the masses would be diligently studied.  In his book, "The Impact of Science On Society" (1951) he wrote:
 
"Although this science of mass psychology will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions are generated." (ibid, Cuddy)
 
In the early 50's, conservative intellectual Anthony Harrigan lashed out at our amoral ruling elite for maliciously demoralizing and degrading Americans in preparation for the acceptance of slavery.  Toward this end they were forcing the acceptance of meaningless, ugly 'art,' sodomy and pornography intentionally mislabeled as,
 
"....medical science, filth as artistic realism, and abnormality as a mere difference of opinion...Americans are in the hands of a cultural ruling class which...is conducting us to ruin." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, pp. 39-40)
 
The results of mass psychology soon became obvious. In "Mental Robots" (1957) Dr. Lewis A. Alesen, former president of the California Medical Association declared:
 
"Americans today are being deluged with...propaganda...under the disarmingly innocent title of 'The Mental Health Program.'...Its (robotry) objectives...the ultimate destruction of the human individual as a person; the eradication of all the traditions, ideals and moral concepts which he has learned from home, church, and school...and taught to deny and reject responsibility for himself, and to transfer that responsibility to the group, that is the state. The master plan...has been the result of...thousands of individuals...who have not had the time...or the ability to gain a perspective of the ultimate aims of the plan which they have actively aided in bringing to fruition. Summer sessions in group dynamics...under the direction of... a subdivision of the National Education Association, with...the fundamental objective to prepare those so trained in the subtle art of propagandizing without seeming to do so. Here among academic surroundings a carefully arranged schedule of indoctrination has been prepared by the National Education Association." (ibid, Cuddy)
 
By the late 1950s, the National Mental Health Institute began a program to have public schools administer Ritalin to children classified as "dull" or "emotionally disturbed."
 
In 1970 'elite' Technocratic globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski approved the increasing availability of psychotropic drugs as a means of mind control. In his "Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Techtronic Era"  Brzezinski argues that biochemical drugs make human beings increasingly malleable and easy to manipulate.
 
Today said Dr. Bruce Shortt, prescribing behavior modifying substances is probably the largest,
 
“…uncontrolled drug experiment in the history of the world….drugs are being given to children…especially little boys.” (Indoctrination: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity, Colin Gunn, pp. 41-42)

Ritalin, Adderall, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil and other psychotropic drugs are,

 “…being used to drug school children at rates that are difficult to comprehend…The Drug Enforcement Administration has estimated that 8 million children and adults were on Ritalin in 2000. Prescriptions for Ritalin increased by 700 percent from 1990 to 2001.” (ibid)
 
By 1966, Dr. James McConnell, a professor of psychology at the University of Michigan, was boasting of his ability to psychologically control and manipulate unsuspecting Americans:
 
"I teach a course called The Psychology of Influence, and I begin it by stating categorically that the time has come when, if you give me any normal human being and a couple of weeks,...I can change his behavior from what it is not to whatever you want it to be, if it's physically possible....I can turn him from a Christian into a communist and vice versa....Look, we can do these things. We can control behavior." (ibid)
 
Just five years later Milton Rokeach wrote in "Persuasion That Persists:"
 
"It now seems to be within man's power to alter experimentally another person's basic values, and to control the direction of the change." (Psychology Today, Sept. 1971)
 
In 1978 Martin Gross, author of "The Psychological Society" informed his readers that:
 
"Our schools are taking on the aura of a psychiatric clinic, without taxpayer consent....The school child is immersed in a psychological environment in which he is cajoled, invited, seduced, even bludgeoned into seeking counseling....Almost all the (school psychology) personnel are actually laymen. The entire practice of school psychology may be seen as an intrusion of bureaucracy into the family structure....By labeling it as 'counseling' instead of 'psychotherapy,' they may have invented a semantic subterfuge to circumvent the law....There is no real evidence that the anxieties, neuroses, or eventual psychosis rate of children is in any way reduced by school intervention. There is the equal possibility that the effort is actually a NEUROTIC STIMULUS. With our taxes, we are helping poorly trained specialists to tamper with the psyches of an already over psychologized generation." (ibid, Cuddy)
 
Many years later psychiatrist William Sargent identified some of the principle techniques underlying mind control in his book, "Battle for the Mind: The Mechanics of Indoctrination, Brainwashing, and Thought Control."  In addition to unlimited sex and drugs, Sargent indicates that if certain,
 
"underlying psychological principles are once understood, it should be possible to get at the person, converting and maintaining him in his new belief by a whole variety of imposed stresses that end by altering his brain function."
 
He further explained that the human brain,
 
"...is particularly sensitive to rhythmic stimulation by percussion and bright lights....Belief can be implanted in people after brain function has been sufficiently disturbed by...induced fear, anger or excitement. Of the results caused by such disturbances, the most common one is temporarily impaired judgment and heightened suggestibility." (ibid, Cuddy)
 
In other words, loud, rhythmic drumming and screaming electric guitars accompanied by flashing lights produces a trance-like state that impairs judgment and opens the mind to suggestions.
 
For more than seventy years Americans have been psychologically manipulated and drugged with the ultimate goal of causing a massive counter-conversion of souls from Jesus Christ to the satanic values espoused by the devil's foot soldiers---our spiritually dead ruling class.

If Darwinism is true, then man is a soulless bag of chemicals or beast man equivalent to a rat, pig, or ape.   But if man has no inner person (soul/spirit) as our evil-minded ruling class want you to believe, then the idea of mind control would be absurd.
 
As spirit (mind, will, conscience) is the citadel of your soul, then mind control is really about possession of your soul.  It is the control of the soul, mind, will, and conscience of one person by an evil soul who desires to manipulate and possess his/her control subject to do its' bidding.
 
Mind control is like hypnosis.

Revelation 12: The Beast from the Sea

On July 24, 2009 Pope Benedict XVI delivered a homily in northern Italy’s Cathedral of Aosta before Vespers.  Toward the end of his homily he praised the French Jesuit Pierre Teilhard de Chardin as a model for priests, attributing to him the idea of a cosmic liturgy, which he said was something they should aim to achieve:

So our address to God becomes an address to ourselves:  God invites us to join with him, to leave behind the ocean of evil,  hatred, violence and selfishness and to make ourselves known, to enter into the river of his love….”Let Your Church offer herself to You as a living and holy sacrifice.  This request, addressed to God, is made also to ourselves. It is a reference to two passages from the Letter to the Romans. We ourselves, with our whole being, must be adoration and sacrifice and, by transforming our world, give it back to God.” (Benedict XVI Praises Cosmic Liturgy of Teilhard de Chardin; traditioninaction.org)

From North and South America to Eastern and Western Europe and the farthest reaches of the globe, fear, hate, and tension are building under powerful currents of change.  Foundations are rapidly crumbling and disintegrating as a New World Order strives to come up out of the seas under the guiding hands of global occult elite rulersand unseen spiritual forces of evil. (More Than Conquerors, William Hendrickson, p. 30)

An important architect of the NWO is Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955), a heretic,  evolutionary scientist, New Age Hindu-style occult pantheist and Hermetic and alchemical magician who sought fusion of opposites-- of Jesus Christ with Lapis Philosophorum (enlightenment, elixir of life, the Omega Point),  man with woman (androgyne/transgender) and transgender with Omega point, the very substance of God.

Western esotericism, or occultism, is the search for and study of an unseen reality.  It is secret knowledge of the hidden.   This hidden or arcane knowledge is meant only for certain people, adepts and sages such as Teilhard de Chardin and like-minded esotericists.

Occult practices include but are not limited to Hermetic magic, alchemy, astrology, divination, and spiritualism (contact with spirits).  Interpretation of occultism and its concepts can be found in nature philosophies, occult sciences (evolutionary biology) and occult systems such asancient Egyptian Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Theosophy, Wicca, Satanism, Thelema and neo-paganism.

A general definition is offered by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke:

"Occultism has its basis in a religious way of thinking, the roots of which stretch back into antiquity and which may be described as the Western esoteric tradition. Its principal ingredients have been identified as Gnosticism, the Hermetic treatises on alchemy and magic, Neo-Platonism, and the Kabbalah, all originating in the eastern Mediterranean area during the first few centuries AD." (The Occult Roots of Nazism, Good-Rick-Clarke, p. 17)

 Under cover of 'science,' evolutionary biology is actually hidden knowledge (gnosis) based in a philosophy of naturalism and magic.  When asked why the layman should be interested  ”in so esoteric a subject as evolutionary biology,” one of the leading evolutionists of our day, Professor S.J. Gould responded:

“Because it tells us where we came from, how we got here, and perhaps where we are going. Quite simply, it is science’s version of Roots, except it is the story of us all.”   (The Religious Nature of Evolution Theory and its Attack on Christianity, John G. Leslie and Charles K. Pallaghy, Ph.D, creation.com)

 Evolutionary biology is an anti-creation account positing an alchemical vision holding that billions of years ago chemicals magically birthed from nothing by a Big Bang combined and transcended themselves after a hundred or a thousand identical operations thereby allowing the miraculous transmutation of chemicals into life.   Once life miraculously emerged, hidden natural processes were set in motion that after passage of vast ages supposedly eventuated in the arrival of man:

If man has arrived at his present state as a result of natural processes rather than a supernatural will, he can learn to control these processes…The concept of evolution, which is now basic to the life sciences, has provided new and in some ways revolutionary answers to questions men have been asking for centuries. The two most important of these are, ‘Why am I here, what is the purpose of human existence, and what is the nature of the world of life that surrounds us?”   (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

Teilhard’s quest was not the mere control of hidden processes however, but the ages-old alchemist’s dream of perfecting the material world or cosmos thereby transmuting (deifying) himself  by way of his own fusion with the Divine Energy variously known throughout the ancient and modern world as divine Mens, Brahman, Watery Abyss, Void, and Quantum Void,

“…the fixed center from which all material energies emanate.” (The Meaning of the Magicians, Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, p. 118)

Pauwels and Bergier’s book heralded a new dawning of an age of alchemy.  Like Carl Jung and Teilhard they understood the religious impulse of alchemy:

For the alchemist, it must never be forgotten that power over matter and energy is only a secondary reality.  The real aim of the alchemist’s activities, which are perhaps the remains of a very old science belonging to a civilization long extinct, is the transformation of the alchemist himself, his accession to a higher state of consciousness…Everything is oriented towards the transmutation of man…his deification, his fusion with the divine energy…(and) as Teilhard put it: ‘The real aim of physics should be to integrate Man as a totality in a coherent representation of the world.” (ibid)

Alchemy is above all the ancient occult science of secret initiates from the time of Babylon--- the gnostic magicians who soughtesoteric knowledge (the Philosopher’s Stone) in their quest to perform the great work. Mircea Eliade explains:

The aim of the opus magnum (great work) was at once the freeing of the human soul and the healing of the cosmos….In the eyes of the alchemists, observes Jung, Christianity saved man but not nature.  It is the alchemist’s dream to heal the world in its totality; the Philosopher’s Stone is conceived as the Filius Macrcosmoi who heals the world…The ultimate goal of the opus is Cosmic Salvation; for this reason, the Lapis Philosophorum is identified with Christ.” (The Forge and the Crucible: The Origin and Structure of Alchemy, 1956, p. 225)

In pursuit of his Great Work, Teilhard invented a New Religion:

As you already know, what dominates my interest and my preoccupations is the effort to establish in myself and to spread around a new religion (you may call it a better Christianity) in which the personal God ceases to be the great Neolithic proprietor of former times, in order to become the soul of the world; our religious and cultural stage calls for this.” (Lettres a Leontine Zanta, quoted by von Hildebrand in Trojan Horse in the City of God, 1967, p. 239)

Teilhard willfully abandoned the ‘old’ form of Christian theism with its’ miraculous creation account ex nihilo, fall of Adam and Eve, Jesus Christ’s work on the cross, His bodily resurrection and ascension, and hope of eternal life in Paradise--positions he had nothing but contempt for-- in favor of modern scientific positions and self-deification,

“…all those goody-goody romances about the saints and the martyrs! Whatever normal child would want to spend eternity in such boring company?”  (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 584)

We need a ‘new definition of holiness,’ said Teilhard, one that is predicated upon evolutionary change. Henceforth, all theories, hypotheses, systems and Christianity itself must bow before seething evolutionary energies if they are to be thinkable and true:

The modern world is a world in evolution; hence the static concepts of the spiritual life must be rethought and the classical teachings of Christ must be reinterpreted.” (ibid)

Toward his goal of Cosmic Salvation Teilhard subsumed the Triune God into His own creation and secularized and pantheitized Christian theism to become the prophet of alchemy who has discovered that through fusion of universal evolutionism and the Genesis account of creation  the cosmos becomes divine.   In this way the magician promises to fulfill the ancient quest: the aim of the opus magnum.  With this sorcerer's power, said Teilhard:

“…I can increase the density of the divine atmosphere…that atmosphere in which it is always my one desire to be immersed….” (ibid)

Now that the cosmos is God, and the cosmos is evolving, then God too is in process of evolving, therefore,

“…the World…endomorphizes God, and that God….transforms himself as He incorporates us…All around us and within our own selves, God is in the process of changing….”   (The Heart of the Matter, de Chardin, pp. 52-53)

Rejecting the ‘the earlier conception that God could create instantaneously,’ the magician teaches instead that God is both the Evolver and the object of evolution and,

“…cannot create except evolutively.” (Christianity and Evolution, de Chardin, p. 179)

In opposition to the traditional Christian belief in an omnipotent, omniscient, living, personal God Who called everything into existence in six days, Teilhard defines God as an impersonal ”it” and writes:

“…God’s power has not so free a field for its action as we assume; on the contrary…it labors to produce…it is always obliged, in the course of its creative effort, to pass through a whole series of intermediaries and to overcome a whole succession of inevitable risks…” (ibid, p.31)

Toward the evolution of deified human consciousness, the impersonal “it’ has evolved through three stages:

1.   Cosmogenesis (Big Bang): the explosive birth of energy-then-matter from nothingness

2.  Biogenesis: alchemical transmutation of life from chemicals eventually followed by living forms

3.  Noogenesis: the evolution of human consciousness which heralds the emergence of  ”cosmogenesis-God,” the impersonal “it” that replaces,

“…the Father-God of two thousand years ago..” (ibid, p. 202)

Christians should not fear the process of evolution said Teilhard, because it fuses them with the substance of God:

Though frightened for a moment by evolution, the Christian now perceives that what it offers him is a magnificent means of feeling more at one with God. In (the old, traditional form of Christianity), the universal domination of Christ could…still be regarded as an extrinsic and superimposed power. In a spiritually converging world, this ‘Christic’ energy acquires an urgency and intensity of another order altogether.” (Seraphim Rose, p. 590, emphasis added)

Teilhard saw in communism the germ of a totalist (fused) world order:

Teilhard….admired any form of totalitarianism simply because it seemed to prove his theory of convergence, whether it was Hitler or Stalin or the early Mao Tse-Tung did not seem to worry him very much.” (Zen, Drugs, and Mysticism, R.C. Zaehner, p. 181)

As a son of the Roman Catholic church, Teilhard describes the fusion or convergence of God with both cosmos and man as “transubstantiation” of the earth,

As our humanity assimilates the material world, as the Host (i.e., Roman Catholic eucharist) assimilates our humanity, the eucharistic transformation goes beyond and completes the transubstantiation of the bread on the altar.  Step by step it irresistibly invades the universe…The sacramental Species are formed by the totality of the world, and the duration of the creation is the time needed for its consecration.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 587)

According to Teilhard, transubstantiation of the earth is the great event which we are awaiting, the act of adoration in which we are allied and mutually exalted in the passionate desire to conquer the World (God) and fuse ourselves with Him, the vital act,

“…corresponding to a new age of Earth.” (ibid, p. 590)

Teilhard is almost without question the spiritual father of the rising tide of occult spiritual and political globalism and fusion of male with female (1) and man with God now taking the West and America by storm and issuing in an unprecedented demonic outpouring. (2) 

Teilhard formulated the dominant conceptual framework for a planetary occult pagan and pantheist religion and spiritually totalitarian social order.   Describing himself as a mystic and an evolutionary scientist, Teilhard taught that the spiritual, religious and political unification of the earth was the next great evolutionary leap to come and that this fusion was as necessary for the survival of mankind as is the fusion of polar opposites (i.e., good with evil, light with dark, male with female) and the transformation and integration of the Hindu god Shiva (The Destroyer) by Christ:

It is not enough to refuse or ridicule Shiva: for he exists.  What is necessary, is to Christify him.  Christwould not be complete if he did not integrate Shiva (as a component), whilst transforming him.” (Towards a New Mysticism: Teilhard de Chardin and Eastern Religions, Ursula King)

Whether it is called Transubstantiation of the earth, Cosmic Liturgy or the Planetary Mass, the  fusion of God with the cosmos and man is being celebrated here in America at New York City’s Cathedral of Saint John the Divine and at San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral.  In his book, “One World,” Tal Brooke, President of the Spiritual Counterfeits Project writes,

“..the high priestly celebrant and innovator of the Planetary Mass was Matthew Fox, the renegade New Age Catholic priest….Now it was time for main line Protestantism, open-minded and liberal, to welcome the heretical Catholic priest into its ranks…” (p. 185)

These two Cathedrals are preparing the way for the Cosmic Millennium:

"Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the "divine," its transcendence into ever higher forms of life. Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine. This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity. Its full flowering be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...."  (Robert Muller (1923-2010), former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, architect of World Core Curriculum, hailed as the U.N.s Prophet of Hope, in "Shaping a Global Spirituality, p. 49) 

The two cathedrals are the gateways through which all of the world’s religions, philosophies, secular and paganized 'Christian' religions converge into a new Mystery Babylon, the Western gesture,

“…towards syncretism—spiritual disarmament—involving abandonment of history, tradition, and religious sovereignty.” (p. 187)

The mystery religion of Babylon is the root of all mystery religions promising the keys to immortality and divinity.   Babylon embraced the Great Lie.  Like all Western impenitent sinners eagerly awaiting the Cosmic Millennial, Babylon's idolaters claimed the title of "I AM" and identified self with God. (Isaiah 45, 47)

Revelation reports that at some point the whole world becomes drunk on the Cosmic Liturgy of modern Mystery Babylon.  All self-worshippers are invited to partake of the Cosmic Liturgy except for backwards, unscientific, anti-evolution 'fundamentalists,' the thoroughly despised faithful Christians and Jews who refuse to converge with cosmogenesis-god.   These despicable ones are incapable of fusion and are being sorted out even now because only the good evolve:

“.....'good’ meaning that which is capable of aligning with the whole emerging systems…A Quantum transformation is the time of selection of what evolves from what devolves….We are now in a sorting-out phase.  Those who elect to transform are now being magnetized by their attraction to the next phase.  Those who do not elect to transform are being turned off by their repulsion to the next phase.  By attraction and repulsion the selection is being made.”   (New Age globalist Barbara Marx Hubbard, ibid, p. 197)

Hubbard is deeply deluded, for the end of the beast and all who elect to transform is to be taken and cast into a lake of fire and the smoke of their torment will ascend up for ever and ever.

Creation Ex Nihilo vs Evolutionary Naturalism: The Single Most Critical Conflict Today

In June 2005 the prestigious World Summit on Evolution was held on the remote island of San Cristobal in the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador.  The location was chosen because it was the spot where Charles Darwin docked in 1835 to probe the ultimate question—the origin and nature of life.

The Galapagos summit was hailed as the Woodstock of Evolution, and attending scientists celebrated as a literal “Who’s Who of evolutionary theory.”

A key figure at the conference was the world famous philosopher of mind, Daniel Dennett.  Dennett is the favorite of all new pagan and mystical pantheist trans-humanists. They believe that computers can not only simulate human mental processes but will eventually evolve the conscious awareness known today as artificial intelligence  

Strangely, for a philosopher of mind Dennett seeks to convince the world that there really isn’t any such thing as a mind in the traditional Biblical sense. In the Biblical sense, the material brain is an awesomely designed computer by which spirit, the citadel of man’s soul, interfaces with the world of matter, time, and space. Like dreaming however, thinking does not take place within the material brain but within the unseen dimension of spirit.

As a neo-pagan evolutionary materialist (pagan animist), Dennett enthusiastically embraces Darwin’s evolutionary theory because evolution—-an unseen creative energy that acts upon matter—- supposedly provides a ‘scientific’ explanation for the emergence of life from non-life bearing chemicals, thereby supposedly negating the necessity of the living, supernatural Tri-Personal God.   Hence Dennett’s delusional insistence that there is no soul/spirit (mind, will) associated with the human brain or any supernatural God or life after death.   Thus the central concern of Dennett’s career has been to explain how,

“….meaning, function and purpose can come to exist in a world that is intrinsically meaningless and functionless.” (The Spiritual Brain, Beauregard & O’Leary, p. 2)

Dennett’s pagan materialist assumptions are in keeping with Darwin’s conceptions.  In thoroughly researching Darwin’s notebooks atheist evolutionists Stephen Jay Gould and Ernst Mayer have shown that Darwin identified himself as a philosophical materialist several months before he developed the idea of natural selection, a type of predestination.

Contemporary evolutionary materialism is a revamped version of ancient Egyptian materialism and the Atomism taught by ancient Greek nature philosophers such as Epicurus.  Epicurus held that all that exists are atoms (matter) bumping together in a void.  There is no God or gods; no origin for life and conscious life, thus no soul/spirit, and no life after death.  Just atoms, the void and annihilation.   This means that man is less than nothing.

Neo-pagan evolutionary materialism (naturalism) began ascending to its’ current dominant philosophical and scientific position as far back as the 17th century.   The conflict between the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and the naturalistic account is an ancient and critically important conflict, one fought with asperity in the 17th century between such men as Donne and Milton on one side and Bacon and the Royal Society on the other.   In the 18th century men such as Swift, Pope and Johnson opposed the neo-pagan naturalism of Hume, Bentham and French philosophers.  By the 19th century it was being fought over the whole of Western culture with creation ministries and men such as Richard John Neuhaus, Seraphim Rose, Peter Jones,  Albert Mohler, Creation Ministries International and a host of other supernatural creationists staunchly opposing all neo-pagan naturalism (materialist and pantheist) as represented by, for example,  Darwin, Dennett, Edward O. Wilson, Steven Pinker, Tom Wolfe, Teilhard de Chardin, Michael Dowd, Rob Bell, and Tim Keller.

Why is this conflict so important?  Among crucial issues is the answer to the question, ‘what is man?’   The answers provided by naturalism are entirely opposed to the answer provided by the Genesis account:

“As part of our commitment to building a just and loving society, we must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life,” Trump continued. “All children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God. Every life is sacred, and every soul is a precious gift from heaven. As the Lord says in Jeremiah, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart.’” (Trump Says ‘Every Soul Is A Precious Gift From Heaven,’ Cites Scripture At Prayer Breakfast, Calvin Freiburge, Life Site News, Feb. 7, 2019)

The Genesis account of creation ex nihilo reveals that man is a person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons.  Man was created directly by the Creator God of Gen. 1 identified by the Apostle John as the Son of God (John 1:1), thus the with a superhuman intelligence and original nature from which Adam, hence all of us,  fell away and to which we are called back.

Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar observes that the unique concept of man as God's spiritual image-bearer gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," and this is,

"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, pp. 12-13)

In affirmation, the brilliant French economist, statesman and author Frederic Bastiat writes of the gifts from God which includes the physical, intellectual and moral life:

"He has provided us with a collection of marvelous faculties. And He has put us in the midst of a variety of natural resources. By application of our faculties to these natural resources we convert them into products, and use them. Life, faculties, production — in other words, individuality, liberty, property — this is man (and) these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place." (How Evil Works, David Kupelian, p. 8)

John 1:3 identifies our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ , the second Person of the Holy Trinity as the Creator:

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” “He was in the world, and the world was made by him” (v. 10). “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” (v. 14).

Jesus Christ is the Creator.  Foremost of His miracles is creation out of nothing—six instantaneous acts or days of creation rather than the billions of years of evolutionary process as the wisdom of fallen man holds.

On the miraculous creation of the first man Church Father John Chrysostom writes:

“And God formed man of dust from the earth, and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul….the inbreathing communicated to the one created out of earth the power of life, and thus the nature of the soul was formed.  What does a living soul mean?  An active soul, which has the members of the body as the implements of its activities, submissive to its will.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p.215)

Gregory of Nyssa adds:

The body and the soul were formed at the same time—not one before and the other afterwards…” (ibid, p. 218

Early Church Fathers make the point that the whole of creation---angels, time, matter, fire, wind, water, herbs, trees, all life and conscious life---was brought into existence from non-existence (ex nihilo), not from anything already in existence or from the Essence or Nature of God.  Therefore creation does not have the same essence as God and is not a part of God as most ancient and modern pagans believe.

Lest we be led away into the false opinion that the soul itself is Divine, or a part of God’s essence as pantheists and Gnostic’s teach, Chrysostom writes:

“Certain senseless ones, being drawn away by their own conceptions, without thinking of anything in a God-befitting manner…dare to say that the soul has proceeded from the Essence of God. O frenzy! O folly! How many paths of perdition has the devil opened up for those who will serve him!” (ibid, Rose,  p. 216)

Neo-pagan naturalist myths like Darwin's materialist idea and Telhard de Chardin's Vedanta monist conception reject the Genesis account ex nihilo together with Original Sin and the fall and teach instead an inverted exegesis positing that man comes up from chemicals and lower creatures.  This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of relativism (subjectivism) because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else–maybe a divine superman, god-man, or super robot—-but nothing can be said about LGBTQ+ and the contemporary menu of 15 genders since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter that spontaneously generated itself from nothing.

With regard to soul/spirit, if man evolved from non-living, genderless matter or energy and lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth.  Like them he has no spirit—free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience.  He is a fleshy robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

Worse, as all pagan and pantheist conceptions are equally God-less, hence lifeless and mindless, none have an ultimate source for life, consciousness, soul, and personhood, thus all are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism (meaninglessness) which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman, thereby allowing for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  Here in paganized America tens of millions of unborn humans have been sadistically liquidated within abortuaries while  during the 20th century in excess of 160,000,000 unevolved human weeds, and useless eaters were brutally murdered in one way or another by two pagan and pantheist regimes: Marxist Communism and National Socialism.

Today, in the name of preventing climate change, ominous anti-human agendas are making astonishing inroads over and across America.

In "War On Humans," Wesley J. Smith reports that the "nature rights" movement seeks to grant flora and fauna,

"...the right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate its vital cycles"—essentially a right to life that explicitly erases the moral distinction between humans and all other life forms. "  (tothesource, Feb. 27, 2014)

The putative rights of nature may also extend to inanimate matter:

"The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Nature announces that the rights of nature are "inalienable . . . without distinction of any kind, such as may be made between organic and inorganic beings, origin, use to human beings, or any other state." 

Nature has already been granted "rights" by Ecuador and Bolivia, as well as in some thirty U.S. municipalities,

"...including Santa Monica, California. Ban ki-Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations has thrown his support behind the movement, and nature rights has been proposed for inclusion in an eventual UN treaty to fight climate change."
 

Though pagan naturalists prefer to keep it secret, they say in so many words that the depersonalized collective human organism will eventually evolve into some sort of cosmic Super Organism.  Underlying this idea is a quasi-Buddhist concept expressed in the idea that a universal human organism is reaching a magnificently evolved state of exaltation.

This view leads directly to religious ideas like those of Teilhard de Chardin who said that for Communism to succeed science must become spiritualized and the democrat, communist and fascist must unite.   These three currents must merge in order to promote the spiritual future of the World:

“The function of man is to build and direct the whole of the Earth…We shall end by perceiving that the great object unconsciously pursued by science is nothing else than the discovery of God.” (ibid, Rose, 591)

Chardin theorized that after millions of years of evolution a Christ consciousness was finally emerging out of matter causing the whole world and everything in it to become spiritualized and divinized.  Everything is becoming Christ, said Teilhard.

Seraphim Rose observes that Teilhard’s pantheism is a frightful heresy:

People will think they are gods while actually having this animalistic philosophy (which) is exactly what Antichrist needs in order to come to reign.” (ibid, p. 282)

In the final analysis, the conflict between supernatural creation ex nihilo and anti-human neo-pagan naturalism boils down to the answers to these questions: what or who are you and where you will spend eternity.

Lessons of Evil

In "The High Cost of 'Free," Lloyd S. Pettegrew and Carol A. Vance report that in the Denver arena where Mr. Obama gave his DNC 2008 acceptance speech,

"...a woman in the audience became overwhelmed by the speech and said that she no longer needed to worry if she could make her car or mortgage payments because he would take care of it for her. In Cleveland, a woman claimed that she was going to vote for President Obama again because he gave her a free cellphone (along with a litany of other entitlement giveaways)."  (Ludwig von Mises Institute, June 5, 2013)

There is no 'cash tree' growing in Washington D.C. yielding the millions of dollars handed out by politicians for 'free' cell phones, 'free' house payments, 'free' education, 'free' condoms,  ‘free’ abortions, 'free' healthcare and other 'entitlement' giveaways.    Money doesn't grow on trees---it has to be earned the hard way by people who work.

The allure of "free" is so powerful, so overwhelmingly seductive that an alarming number of people, both citizen and noncitizen alike, willfully choose to become wards or 'slaves' of Big Brother's entitlement/welfare state rather than captain their own destiny:

“Economist Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute believes that Americans have become a nation of takers, threatening the self-reliance that has long characterized our national psyche. Eberstadt (2012, p. 4) presents data showing that entitlement payments to Americans, since 1960, have risen annually by 9.5 percent..... This has resulted in 49 percent of American households receiving one or more government transfer benefits (Eberstadt 2013); this amounts to 18 percent of all personal income and a burden of $7,400 for every American." (ibid)

Under the pretense of compassion, fairness, equality, 'rights,' fighting poverty, protecting the environment, and granting 'choice' to abortion activists our 'broken' law forcibly takes property from one person and gives it to another.  It takes the wealth of the many and gives it to a favored few.  It gives the power of death to the self-serving few over the lives of the inconvenient and unwanted.   This is legalized murder and plunder and  is common to socialists, communists and others of the totalitarian bent of mind who see plunder  and murder together with forcing everyone to be miserable as a way of putting an end to all conditions that make for envy/covetousness, their own first of all.

The Founders fully recognized that in light of man's sin nature, covetousness/envy could easily become a driving force in politics, so they designed the Constitution to protect our God-given rights of life, liberty and property from the grasping hand of a tyrannical government.  They never intended for law to assume the role of Big Brother granting man-invented 'rights' 'privileges' and 'entitlements' to certain favored groups or individuals:

"The Constitution is a chart of negative liberties, (it) says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government must do on your behalf." (Who Poses the Greater Threat? Walter Williams, Townhall.com, Mar. 3, 2010)

"Envy is rottenness to the bones" (Proverbs 14:30), and whether it is the genocidal socialism of the former Soviet Union, the version espoused by the Nazis or the Americanized socialism that is emerging here, the overarching sentiment is the very same cold-blooded deadly sin---covetousness/envy:

"Marxism has been described as a blood cult, with envy its abiding stimulant, fuel, and motive."  (Joseph Epstein, former editor of The American Scholar, quoted in "Truths About Socialism," Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

Where the Church promised the remission of original sin, regeneration by the Spirit of God and salvation in paradise or eternal damnation in outer darkness, Marxist Communism held a redemptive belief in the Promethean destiny of mankind.  This was the messianic dream of the Workers’ Paradise where all conditions making for envy/covetousness would be put to an end by liberating libido and by seizing all 'sinful' property---including wives, daughters and sons coveted by the libidinous---and by liquidating all state 'enemies,' (i.e., the human objects of envy, dissidents).  'Enemy' was a totally elastic category that expanded or contracted to meet political needs, libidinous desires, whims and caprices of the moment:

"The enemy is the great justification for terror, and the totalitarian state needs enemies to survive.  If it lacks them, it invents them.  Once they have been identified, they are treated without mercy."   Being an enemy is enough, "there is no need actually to have done anything at all."  (The Black Book of Communism, Courtois, Werth, Panne, Paczkowski, Bartosek, Margolin, . p. 747)

The methodology of evil begins by labeling the hated and envied an 'enemy' (i.e. in America--- homophobe, racist, bigot, pro-lifer, traditionalist or anti-Muslim) and then declared a criminal (hateful bigot), which leads to his exclusion from society.   Where power is total, exclusion very quickly leads to arrest and then extermination:

"The leaders of totalitarian regimes saw themselves as the moral guardians of society and were proud of their right to send anyone they chose to their death."  (ibid, p. 748)

If not death then deportation---and no trial necessary:

"But when you were deported, what was it for? What was the charge?" "Why bother to think up a charge? 'Socially harmful' or 'socially dangerous element'--S.D.E.', they called it. Special decrees, just marked by letters of the alphabet. So it was quite easy. No trial necessary."  "And what about your husband? Who was he?" "Nobody. He played the flute in the Leningrad Philharmonic. He liked to talk when he'd had a few drinks." “…We knew one family with grown-up children, a son and a daughter, both Komsomol (Communist youth members). Suddenly the whole family was put down for deportation to Siberia. The children rushed to the Komsomol district office. 'Protect us!' they said. 'Certainly we'll protect you,' they were told. 'Just write on this piece of paper: As from today's date I ask not to be considered the son, or the daughter, of such-and-such parents. I renounce them as socially harmful elements and I promise in the future to have nothing whatever to do with them and to maintain no communication with them.”    (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn,   Cancer Ward)   

 As envy really is rottenness to the bones, the reduction (dehumanization) of the hated and envied to pig, weed, dog, filth, bigot, homophobe, or socially harmful element for example, occurs as a matter of course to the darkened burning mind of the envious, especially to the soulless husks void of empathy and conscience.   Just as dehumanization precedes branding  as 'enemy,'  legalized plunder and exclusion from society, so it precedes the death of the envied, as was the case with Cain before he murdered his brother.

The systematic murder of millions of people in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by scientifically animalizing  'others,' the objects of hatred, resentment and envy.   This was achieved by application of the Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking that ultimately enabled Marxists to justify their monstrous crimes against humanity.   Second, by maliciously whipping up and enflaming covetousness/envy within the hearts of the 'oppressed.'

In 1956, Ludwig von Mises exposed the rottenness of envy and resentment fueling the paradoxical reasoning of people who are favorably disposed toward socialism rather than capitalism:

"It is paradoxical indeed that the leaders of these Oriental peoples, while casting longing glances at the prosperity of the Western nations, reject the methods that made the West prosperous and are enraptured by Russian communism that is instrumental in keeping the Russians and their satellites poor. It is still more paradoxical that Americans, enjoying the products of capitalistic big business, exalt the Soviet system and consider it quite "natural" that the poor nations of Asia and Africa should prefer communism to capitalism." (Reactionary Socialism, Mises Daily, Dec. 12, 2011)

Those who prefer the legal plunder or redistributionist policies of socialism,

"...are blinded by envy and ignorance. They stubbornly refuse to study economics and spurn the economists' devastating critique of the socialist plans because, in their eyes, economics, being an abstract theory, is simply nonsense. They pretend to trust only in experience. But they no less stubbornly refuse to take cognizance of the undeniable facts of experience, viz., that the common man's standard of living is incomparably higher in capitalistic American than in the socialist paradise of the Soviets." (ibid)

At the end of WW II, dispirited atheist, communist, socialist, progressive and Christian thinkers began to analyze the crisis the war had precipitated and to reconstruct the civilization it had threatened.  Out of these efforts arose the "new conservative" or traditionalist wing of the postwar conservative intellectual movement in America. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 30)

Their penetrating analysis of the ideas underlying and fueling communism and socialism such as the total immanent society (omnipotent, all-knowing society), Social Darwinism, positivism, rationalism, naturalism, materialism, collectivism, atomistic liberalism and underlying them all, atheism, led many of them to declare that evil ideas working through the minds of men had ultimately unleashed the catastrophic evils that had enveloped much of the world.  Upon this realization many of them either returned or converted to orthodox supernatural Christian theism.

For example, Douglas Hyde, an English ex-Communist and convert to Catholic Christianity emphatically declared:

"The sanest things on earth are those for which the allegedly reactive, unscientific, obscurantist Church stands and for which she is doing battle." (ibid, p. 52)

"Christianity is the most complete and perfect revelation of the nature of God and of God's will for man," wrote John Hallowell in 1950.   Orthodox Christianity was the unifying thesis of Hallowell's interpretation of modern scientific/ political philosophy:

"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves.  That crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent conception of reality....Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil."  (ibid, p. 53)

The Christianity which Hallowell, Buckley, Hyde, Vivas and others defended was not the liberal or modernist evolutionary Christianity of the Social Gospel and Gnostic immanent Protestantism.   It was a supernatural Christianity grounded in what for many early conservatives was the deepest, most terrifying lesson of WW II: the lesson of evil, of original sin:

"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin," asserted Hallowell.  To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the "enigma that is man" than original sin.  Evil was not just a "bad dream" an "accident of history," or "the creation of a few antisocial men."   Evil is a "subtle, pervasive, protean force," and original sin was a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."   (ibid, 53)

Eliseo Vivas concurred.   Inside every man and woman he said, lay "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define value in his own interests (moral relativism).  And this is precisely what powerful, amoral socialists, progressives, and others of the Social Darwinian mindset do, thereby liberating themselves and their malignant allies to maliciously fan the flames of covetousness/envy and hate in the hearts of our youth:

"Atheist teachers in the West are bringing up a younger generation in a spirit of hatred of their own society. Amid all the vituperation we forget that the defects of capitalism represent the basic flaws of human nature, allowed unlimited freedom together with the various human rights; we forget that under Communism (and Communism is breathing down the neck of all moderate forms of socialism, which are unstable) the identical flaws run riot in any person with the least degree of authority; while everyone else under that system does indeed attain 'equality'--the equality of destitute slaves. This eager fanning of the flames of hatred is becoming the mark of today's free world. Indeed, the broader the personal freedoms are, the higher the level of prosperity or even of abundance--the more vehement, paradoxically, does this blind hatred become. The contemporary developed West thus demonstrates by its own example that human salvation can be found neither in the profusion of material goods nor in merely making money.”   Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The social implications of original sin were obvious to early conservatives who believed that if the West and America were to have any chance of surviving rather than finally erupting in flames and blood, then there must be a revival of traditional Christianity along with the restoration to our vocabulary of a word discarded long ago, namely sin.

Peter Hitchens, author of "The Rage Against God" agrees.  The living, supernatural God of the Bible is the chief rival of global socialist utopians whose power has grown enormously due to the trivialization of sin by the submissive, irrelevant contemporary church and through an alliance with radical Muslims and the cult of unrestrained libido unleashed into the Western world by Freud, Reich, Kinsey and Marcuse,

".... promoted by the self-pitying anthems of rock music, and encouraged by the enormous power of 'progressive' education in which so many cultural revolutionaries work."  (p. 135)

Echoing the cautionary advice of early conservative intellectuals, Hitchens  warns that only the concepts of sin,

".....of conscience, of eternal life, and of divine justice under an unalterable law are the ultimate defense against the utopian's belief that ends justify means and that morality is relative.   These concepts are safeguards against the worship of human power." (p. 135)

Without these safeguards America and the West will be overcome by a tyranny of evil.
