Don't panic, it's only the end of the American Empire

Many empires have fallen before without bringing much change to ordinary lives. But then again, no empire has fallen under the eyes of a chaotic and intense media.

There is little doubt now that we are witnessing the death throes of the American empire. But this imminent collapse will not spell the end of the world. That's not to say a lot of damage won't occur as international order is reshuffled and the empire lashes out against its fate. Already, for example, the empire's leadership has spoken of a nuclear denouement to its short-lived (by imperial standards) story.

In the same way that hyperbole gripped Western media opinion in the days after the September 11 attacks, so that there was a widely agreed-upon, but far overwrought, sense that "the world changed" as a result, so too will other coming dramatic signs of imperial disintegration deliver to us, via the same hysterical media, the feeling that with the demise of the American empire, the world is ending in every sense of the word.

However, as the global British imperial system fell apart, day-to-day life changed little for its subjects. Some people found themselves in newly-minted countries, others learned their rulers were now independent of the British, and in only occasional instances did wars or rebellions break out.

Life changed for those who lived through the collapse of the Soviet empire, but only in slow, largely adaptable ways. They may have found themselves out of work, as opposed to at work but not productively occupied, but they lined up for bread all the same, now not because of a shortage of bread, but because of a shortage of money. It was a fine distinction.

This was true also for survivors of the even longer-lived Ottoman empire as it broke apart. Political leaders throughout Western Asia and the Middle East might have experienced dramatic reversals of fortune in their lives, but for the bulk of the people, they continued waking up, going to their work, eating their dinner, and going to bed, learning of the tumultuous change at the distant top of political rule only through news reports.

The final collapse of the Holy Roman empire in the mid-19th century brought about ten years of disruption to the day-to-day lives of people across Europe, but as republic administrations came to replace monarchies, much the same patterns of life resumed.

The fall of Rome, also, more than a thousand years earlier, changed life for those outside Rome in only very highly nuanced ways.

Thus it shall be for survivors of the fall of the American empire, at least for most people outside America--so long as that empire refrains from letting loose a volley of nuclear bombs in its final flickering of life that would devastate some places, and endanger the global environment everywhere else.

The one big difference between this episode of imperial collapse that we shall witness and all others that have come before, is the presence of a 24-hour-a-day instantaneous and wholly sensationalized media. Its effect on the outcome of this process cannot be over looked.

Moreover, this media--including newspapers, magazines, television networks, music producers, book publishers, and film makers--is mostly controlled from the hot centre of the empire largely by elites who, as always, stand to lose the most when empires fall. For Ted Turner, Rupert Murdoch, Conrad Black, and other titans of industry and media within the centre of the empire, the world will indeed come to an end, and perhaps in some cases literally, for lives are lost in imperial tumult.

The effect on the rest of us, however, will mostly be confusing. We will know by consulting ourselves that little has changed with the passing of the American empire, after perhaps a few years of adjustments and uncertainties. But the media portrayal of its collapse will suggest doomsday is upon us, and to the extent that we typically consult the media today more than ourselves or our neighbours, we are likely to be swept up in the breathless alarm.

A reporter who found himself by chance in an office in a building fronting on the World Trade Centre related how the workers, with a front row real-time seat to the event, had their backs to the window to watch instead the televised account of the buildings' collapse. That's as good a predictor of how we'll behave during the empire's collapse as anything else: inactive and mute, and largely unaffected spectators, nonetheless swept up into the alarm perpetrated by the media more than the alarm our own senses might register.

Political power derives almost entirely from the collective power of persuasion among leaders. In other words, political authority is maintained only so long as people generally believe political authority is maintained. All avenues of mainstream media are instruments of persuasion firmly in the hands of leaders, which is the entire point of owning media. (One need only recall National Post newspaper owner Israel Asper's comments last month regarding his objectives, as owner, in projecting through his newspaper's coverage of news a pro-militant Israel point of view. About making a profit, he was silent. The paper has, so far, lost $300 million).

The prime objective of media during the collapse of the American empire will be to dissuade people from the view that the empire is collapsing. After all, it is the owners of media who today form part of the elite of authority in the empire, and if people were led to think the empire is collapsing, they will also imagine existing authority is breaking down, which it will just as soon as people think it is.

Therefore, the biggest news story of the last 200 years--the collapse of the American empire--will go wholly unreported. Worse yet, as the leaders of that empire ascertain their coming demise, they will over-react, and share their over-reaction through their media with us all, so that we'll all be put into the state of their panic, even while it is only they, and not us, who have any reason to fear the coming changes. Our confusion and fear will be exacerbated because, unlike people who have lived through imperial collapses in the past, we are fully saturated in the elites' media, and mistrust our own senses.

Medieval kings asked that the people identify themselves with the kings' actual physical bodies in order that the people would feel that a threat to the life of the king, or even just a threat to the king's property or capital, would be felt by the people as though it were a threat to their very own lives or to their very own property. Thus would the people sign themselves (or their sons) up to willingly go and risk their lives in wars or crusades in defence, actually, of only the king's life or property, while the king would hide himself and his family and entourage safely away from any trouble, as long as trouble lasted.

The kings managed this trick through the instrument of the media, such as it was in medieval days. Then, it might have been messengers on horseback riding from village to village to warn of the looming catastrophe or spread news of the booty available. Today, cablevision and newspapers serve the same purpose. Thus, US President George Bush, in September of 2001, was quick to announce, after emerging from hiding after the immediate trouble passed, that the attack was not to be seen as box cutter-wielding hijackers steering planes into office buildings, but rather as an attack by hatred against freedom.

Those at risk were not him and his cabal, but every one of the ordinary working class citizens. Iraq and Iran, similarly, are not to be seen as nations contesting the mostly American corporate elites' monopoly over energy supplies, but rather as "evil" entities threatening the American way of life--which is defined vaguely as "liberty" and "freedom." Americans are dutifully signing up their sons to go fight a foreign war to protect the elites' property investments and energy supplies, but under the impression they are out to defend freedom and battle evil.

There is reason for bitter reflection upon the demise of the American empire, to be sure. America at one time legitimately represented a beacon of hope for self-government in a world, at the time, largely governed by self-appointed elites. The American Revolution did succeed in replacing an overly taxing British regime with a home-spun authority that kept tax revenues on the side of the Atlantic ocean from which they had been raised. It also propelled forward, in a limited way, the evolving notion of political authority drawn from among the common people over whom authority was to be exercised. The resulting economic success of America provided a model for the rest of the world, who accurately saw in the principle of self-government the key to improved health, happiness, and prosperity.

America, however, has departed by now far from the principle of self-government, so that the old catch-phrase that neatly captured the spirit of the principle, "Anyone could someday be President," is now nothing but a joke. The illegal US Supreme Court appointment of George Bush as President, over the wishes of the majority of voters who elected Al Gore in the fall of 2000, is only a blunt illustration of what's been the case for several generations in America by now.

It is unfortunate, then, that the failure of America, brought on by the fact that political authority there has long been usurped by illegitimate elites, will instead be inaccurately blamed on the principle of self-government that America once represented, long ago, but no longer does today. The tragedy that looms before us is not found in the coming collapse of the American empire, which is an event that can only be welcomed, but is instead found in the coming collapse of the American ideal, which will take several generations to rebuild all over again.

Then again, the time for weeping over America's loss of its ideal is long passed--that has already happened, and is a long-closed chapter in that nation's history, just as Rome once represented laudable ideals, but evolved later into a machine intent on subverting them.

But it may be possible to hope that the ideal America once represented was successfully transplanted to elsewhere in the world, and among saplings of the once mighty but now fallen oak, root has taken, and limbs have grown forth. After all, that ideal--freedom, happiness, and prosperity as the fruit of self-government--pre-dates America, and there is no reason to think it won't post-date America as well. The ideal, in other words, may survive the death of the nation that for a time hosted it, and permitted, for a time, its further evolution.

Almost all nations that grew into empires did so because, in their infancy as great powers, they embodied noble ideals of one kind or another. It is also true that each empire then grew to subvert those very ideals that gave it its fuel in the first place. And it is more the truth in all history that the fall of the corrupted empire was a necessary pre-condition for those ideals to find new and re-invigorated root elsewhere--just as old and too-large trees are required to fall before new trees can find light out of the cleared forest canopy, and sustenance out of the rotting, fallen log.

The imminent fall of the American empire will occasion a series of distressing events made all the more worrisome by the 24-7 media coverage of it. But as thunderous and ground-shaking as the fall of the forest's biggest tree can be, it is important not to lose faith during the tumult, confusion, and fear that, after the dust settles, a new beginning will come. The American empire will fall with a fearsome and terrible noise. Nonetheless, it is a welcome event, and one to be yearned for. Even hastened.

Merton's Strain Theory

Robert K. Merton, an American sociologist, borrowed Durkheim's concept of anomie to form his own theory, called Strain Theory. It differs somewhat from Durkheim's in that Merton argued that the real problem is not created by a sudden social change, as Durkheim proposed, but rather by a social structure that holds out the same goals to all its members without giving them equal means to achieve them. It is this lack of integration between what the culture calls for and what the structure permits that causes deviant behaviour. Deviance then is a symptom of the social structure. Merton borrowed Durkheim's notion of anomie to describe the breakdown of the normative system.

Merton's theory does not focus upon crime Per say, but rather upon various acts of deviance, which may be understood to lead to criminal behaviour. Merton notes that there are certain goals which are strongly emphasised by society. Society emphasises certain means to reach those goals (such as education, hard work, etc.,) However, not everyone has the equal access to the legitimate means to attain those goals. The stage then is set for anomie.

Merton presents five modes of adapting to strain caused by the restricted access to socially approved goals and means. He did not mean that everyone who was denied access to society's goals became deviant. Rather the response, or modes of adaptation, depend on the individual's attitudes toward cultural goals and the institutional means to attain them. Conformity is the most common mode of adaptation. Individuals accept both the goals as well as the prescribed means for achieving those goals. Conformists will accept, though not always achieve, the goals of society and the means approved for achieving them. Individuals who adapt through innovation accept societal goals but have few legitimate means to achieve those goals, thus they innovate (design) their own means to get ahead. The means to get ahead may be through robbery, embezzlement or other such criminal acts. In ritualism, the third adaptation, individuals abandon the goals they once believed to be within their reach and dedicate themselves to their current lifestyle. They play by the rules and have a daily safe routine. Retreatism is the adaptation of those who give up not only the goals but also the means. They often retreat into the world of alcoholism and drug addiction. They escape into a non-productive, non-striving lifestyle. The final adaptation, rebellion, occurs when the cultural goals and the legitimate means are rejected. Individuals create their own goals and their own means, by protest or revolutionary activity.

Feudalism vs. Democracy

Feudalism is the system of government that most of the world lived under until recent history. This system gives ultimate power and ownership to a King and his appointed court members.

The King is replaced only by blood hereditary heirs, as are other members of the court. This system which had caused immense suppression, poverty, and suffering to the ordinary masses began to be challenged throughout Europe with the English Civil War led by Oliver Cromwell.

America, France, Russia and Germany continued the revolution, snatching power away from the established Royal families, and attempting to construct new social orders. Equality has always been the dream of the idealists who rose up against the fascistic powers of feudalism. The idea that the people have their own divine right to rule themselves, is the idea that inspired the American Constitution. It is the idealistic nature of Democracy that has created a world where, at least in theory, people have human rights of protection under the law, equal access to education and employment, and the freedom to attempt to fulfill their individual Destiny, regardless of their birthright.

Communism, though it's name has been blackened by the Cold War conflict between Russia and her one-time allies, was an attempt to realize the same freedom of the individual from lowest to highest. In fact, most countries that revolted against medieval feudal systems where power was concentrated in the hands of a very few individuals, chose Communism as a substitute system for a people who were unfamilar to the freedoms of self-rule. To outsiders, many communist structures seemed as undemocratic as the feudal system they replaced, but perhaps they were an unavoidable stepping stone from extreme medieval structures into those of the modern world.

The dream of democracy and equality is still unrealized in actuality.

The King's power always lay not only in his birthright, but also in his wealth and ownership. When we look at the democratic nations of today we do not see a fair distribution of power that democracy demands because we do not see the fair distribution of wealth and ownership. In fact, recent statistics show that the richest 10 percent of America controls 88 percent of all stock & bonds and real estate. The real question now is who are the 10 percent? Land ownership is one of the keys to maintaining wealth, not only as the land itself is of great value, but also the raw materials that it contains will be similarly owned. Therefore, those who were first to gain control of the land are likely to have gleaned the wealth that the land has to offer, and those who first owned the land are the same feudal power elite. The immense wealth they extricated came free of charge.

This has been the case across the globe as vast swathes of land, their minerals, oil and other riches have been taken by the aristocratic families of Europe, particularly in Africa and South America. Thus, while the surface system of democracy was eroding the absolute power of these hereditary bloodlines, the real power of their wealth within the capitalistic system was by no means declining. Indeed, slave abolitionist Abraham Lincoln warned Congress "If we do not curb the power of the Corporations we will not see this experiment of freedom succeed".

It is no coincidence that the vast Drakensberg Mountains that cover most of South Africa, famous for their wealth of diamond, silver and gold mines, and where the largest seam of gold ever was discovered, are named after the Imperial & Royal Dragon Sovereignty bloodlines of Europe.

Ninety percent of the world's raw diamonds are sold through a single family-owned company, De Beers of London. Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip owns most of Madagascar, rich with oil and gold. It is unknown just how much land is owned by Britain's Royal Family, but a brief glance at the globe shows their namesake upon much of it. Not only are these "possessions" rich in raw materials, but their political indentity makes them international "tax havens", which according to a recent Organization for Economic Development & Co-operation (OECD) government report, allows for "harmful tax practices and money laundering" ie. non-payment of taxes and drug money. A detailed list of "Rogue States" showed the majority were owned by the British Royal Crown and the Dutch Royal Crown, whose Prince Bernhard was the co-creator of the "Bilderberg Group" and the "European Council of Princes", which is now headed by Prince Michael Stewart of the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court.

Prince Bernhard also created the massive oil/petro-chemical corporation "Royal Dutch/Shell Oil", who have a legacy of environmental destruction, exploitation and murder in Africa, in particular Nigeria, and he and his family remains Royal Dutch/Shell Oil's majority owner. Incidently, Royal Dutch/Shell Oil is a major client of Texas-based Halliburton, the world's largest oil services company, where Dick Cheney was Chief Executive Officer until he was called upon to become America's newest Vice President. Conveniently, Prince Bernhard now has a friend running the White House.

But this is hardly surprising considering that President G.W. Bush's great great grandfather Herbert Walker attended an elite Jesuit private school in Great Britain - Stoneyhurst College - whose college emblem just happens to be the enigmatic and historically relevant "Cross of Lorraine"; that symbolizes the secret beliefs of the Grail/Dragon Bloodlines within occult circles. Other Stoneyhurst alumni listed on their website include ex-director of the CIA General Vernon Walters.

The feudal system also survived in a literal sense through the Occult and alchemical secret societies such as the Rosicrucians and Freemasons whose top ranks have always been drawn from the aristocracy, and proof of an unbroken bloodline from father to son is always demanded. The Grand Lodge of London, the White House of international Freemasonry, has always had British royalty at its head.

As Freemasonry has always been popular in Establishment organizations such as the military, government, police and judicial system, the military-industrial complex has easily grown away from and beyond the control of the individual voter. British subjects who believe their own prominent Royal family to be nothing more than a patriotic figure head, were surprised when Britain's Prince Philip attended the funeral of Emperor Hirohito of Japan. British survivors of the horrendous Japanese death camps were horrified that their King should show such respect for this "Hitler of the East", an untried war criminal, before showing compassion for his own subjects who had suffered so greatly at the Emperor's hands. This fact alone reveals that Democracy is only the mask of the current feudal system that now controls with a big lie, instead of a big stick.

Perhaps the new struggle of the Democracy movement is to discover exactly how the Feudalist secret societies infiltrate and manipulate the ideals of Democracy.

Political commentator and author Gore Vidal said recently "The greatest challenge for the next President will be to zero in on the precise links between the Military and the Corporations". He first suggested this to President Kennedy following his election. Kennedy smirked and responded "It would take my full attention for an entire term to find that out". JFK never did find the answer.

Judging by the Gore/Bush Presidential elections, where the right to vote doesn't necessarily mean that vote will be counted, Gore Vidal's cousin Al Gore was perhaps similarly "assassinated" by the hidden forces of Feudalism acting within the illusion of Democracy.

As President Bill Clinton's former advisor Sidney Blumenthal observes in his book "The Clinton Wars": There was an "Italianate conspiracy" arrayed against Clinton, "an intricate, covert, amoral operation bent on power", and that ultimately Clinton was hounded by the extreme Right because "he did not share their Biblical global vision."

Occultism

Occultism today includes a broad mix of activities from many traditions. The fundamental difference between Occult pursuits and Spiritual pursuits is that the occultist seeks to gain control over the powers of the Universe, while the pursuer of Spirituality seeks the passive role of alignment with the powers of the Universe.

Occultism is basically derived from Shamanism, but as modern societies developed from tribal societies, a split occurred between Religion and Magic. In Europe's Middle Ages, Magic was pursued through Alchemy, and mixed practices and beliefs from the pagan Wiccan religion of the ancient Celts, with the Christian Gnostic concepts that saw a popular revival in the 12th Century.

The Wiccan nature cults included sacrificial rituals of animals and humans, and sexual fertility rites designed to harmonize communities with the sometimes brutal forces of Nature. Many Gods were worshiped for their individual powers, including the horned and hoofed "Pan", and the Father of the Celtic Gods "Cernunnos", who standing proud with his huge erection, can still be seen today on the hillside of Cerne Abbas in Dorset, England, towering 100 feet over a Roman Catholic monastery.

Christian Gnosticism with its stories of the mystical powers attained by Christ, was embraced as a fulfillment of ancient myth and prophesy, and Christ as a high-priest who achieved God-like powers, was a natural figure to include in their pantheon. Thus, the ancient Celtic Gods of Europe began to merge with the Christian Gods.

Satan and Pan were recognized for their similarities, not only in their physical form, but also in their personal traits.

As the Satan of Gnostic Christianity had such unified and great power in the Universe, as "king and creator of this world", he was a fabulous addition to the supernatural array of Gods. The ancient nature cults, particularly the Gauls, used the conjuring of spirits, a practice derived from Shamanism, as part of their communication with the Gods. According to St. Augustine's "The City of God", the spirits were used for seeking advice and favor, and were divided into "demons called Deuses, and the ancestors".

Demons were hard to control, but could be convinced to do the will of an individual on the material plane if he or she followed certain principles. The Christian Gnostic Satan became an obvious demon figure for worship, as he would be a powerful ally. According to the traditions of the Nature cults, it would be natural to offer sacrifice in return for favors, or have sexual ritual in order to connect with a chosen spirit or demon, as is seen to this day in the indigenous/Hindu beliefs and practices of islands such as Sumatra or Java.

In Europe's Middle Ages, the confusion arising from a clash of mythic and cultural symbolism had obvious moral and ethical implications. Ultimately, the question of whether a person was a "Satanist" would come down to what they were asking the demon to do for them, and what they were prepared to do in return.

Of course, this all depends on one's personal beliefs, ethics, morality, and standing within the social order. While a peasant was accused of selling his soul to Satan to ensure a good harvest, a King who embarked in a Faustian deuce or pact with the Devil, was merely entering into another business arrangement. The myths of King Solomon who used the demon "Asmodeus" to build the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, clearly a metaphor for helping him create his power base, is illustrative of this. However, this alliance ultimately led to the destruction of the Temple, as King Solomon reneged on the deal with his demons.

This popular tale amongst occultists, indeed it is the cornerstone of Freemasonry, clearly contains the moral "always pay your dues to the devil", or your temple will come crashing down... such is the dichotomy within institutions of Western power and Judeo-Christianity.

The Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church designed to root out "Satanism" claimed millions of victims from the peasant and indigenous classes, obliterating what remained of the Pagan nature cults, while "Satanic" practices continued amongst the circles of the power elite within their occult and alchemical secret societies, growing ever more morally and ethically inverted.

The Grail/Dragon aristocratic bloodlines, also known as the Rex Deus fraternity, were evidently the Kings of Satan.

Adolf Hitler and his inner circle of Nazis called the Holocaust "The greatest and most powerful dance of death of all time". Perhaps the real difference between a shamanically informed Pagan ritual, and a Satanic ritual, lies in the consent of any party. A victim by definition is the unconsenting prey of the predator, and any such ritual intends to, and will only, create Darkness.

"The old beliefs will be brought back to honor again. The whole secret knowledge of nature, of the divine, of the demonic. We will wash off the Christian veneer. I want to see in the eyes of youth the gleam of the beast..." said Rosicrucian front-man Adolf Hitler.

Although the Nazis have often been labeled neo-Pagan, their rituals of death were as far from Pagan ritual, and as close to Satanism, as the human race has ever been.

The Dark Side

As we enter the 21st Century, is history destined to repeat itself, and replicate the popularity of Occultist movements in Germany and Austria at the end of the 19th Century, the precursor to the Nazi Third Reich?

Following in the Rosicrucian footsteps of Madame Blavatsky and her Theosophy movement, self-proclaimed guru Sir Laurence Gardner, just as Germany's Guido von List before him, is on a messianic mission to initiate the world into his insanely racist delusions that somehow manage to get mainstream publication. His book "Genesis of the Grail Kings" not only attempts to rationalize Satanism and Vampirism, but tries to justify genocide as the most consistent and appropriate method used by "the Gods" when the Earth's population gets "too large or tiresome" for the ruling elite to handle.

Just as in Blavatsky's "Secret Doctrine", Gardner spuriously invents elaborate genealogies "proving" that the Grail bloodline aristocratic families and the Aryan race are the result of "genetic engineering and cloning by the Annunaki Gods who visited this planet at the dawn of civilization". The "Afro-Asian sub-races were specifically created to be their slaves" and "serve the Annunaki by providing them with food, drink and habitation" while these rulers "spent a great deal of time drinking wine and quarrelling".

These theories are nothing more than an elaboration of Blavatsky's "Atlantean Master Race" jargon, but take into account the discovery of Sumerian myths on clay tablets in the 1920's. Zecharia Sitchen, a self-proclaimed expert on these tablets, perhaps unconsciously reveals the true motive of these beliefs when he translates that "the Annunaki Gods created the Black Headed people (Sumerians) to mine for gold in South Africa". Startlingly, his translations were recently validated during a meeting with senior Vatican official Monsignor Corrado Balducci, a member of the Curia and Cardinal Ratzinger's ultra-conservative Congregation of the Faith.

It is ironic that following the publication of his book Gardner was expelled from his position as Chancellor of the Dragon Court by Prince Nicholas de Vere. One may think this was because Gardner dropped the ball and told all, but this is not the case. Sovereign Grand Master de Vere was angry that he had not been given proper credit for these alarming revelations of exactly what goes on in the minds of the power elite. De Vere surprisingly claims to be the true author of the work, having provided archival information and documents to Gardner from the Royal vaults of the Dragon Court, proving that this belief system has been handed down generation to generation through the ages. Now reaching bizarre proportions, De Vere has set up his own website to further educate the "flim flam peasant stock masses" about the "health benefits of Satanism and Vampirism".

Meanwhile Gardner is aiding King Charles I's descendant Prince Michael Stewart to execute a "quiet Restoration in Scotland". It would be additionally disturbing that Prince Michael should be associated with Gardner, who is the kin of Gerald Gardner, the notorious occultist and father of modern witchcraft, were it not for the fact that Gardner is also the Presidential Attache to the European Council of Princes, who admit they received funds from the CIA. The links between the European aristocracy, occultism and Satanism, and the CIA is apparently no longer cloak and dagger knowledge.

Prince Michael reveals his newest ambassadors include an American ex-military intelligence agent and a member of the South African Free State security forces. While Prince Michael is a relatively small fish with huge ambitions, his choice of cronies illustrates the circles he aims to gravitate within, and no doubt mirrors the really big fish like Prince Otto von Habsburg of Austria, Prince Bernhard and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and the British Royal Family. Gardner spells out his objectives clearly when he writes they are "born and bred to be leaders of humankind... who await the Restoration of our true universal inheritance".

This would be amusing if it were not for the fact that Gardner recently spoke at Yale's elite "Skull and Bones" secret society and that "Genesis of the Grail Kings" is an international bestseller, being particularly popular amongst the right-wing neo-Nazi conspiracy theorists who like Hitler and the Nazis claim "the Jews are ruling the world through the banks and secret societies, and preventing the true leaders of the elite Aryan race from taking their rightful thrones".

Gardner's rationalization of Vampirism becomes sublime "Endocrinal supplements are used by today's organo-therapy establishment, but their inherent secretions (such as melatonin and serotonin) are obtained from the desiccated glands of dead animals and they lack the truly important elements which exist only in live human glandular manufacture."

The end result of this belief system can be found in the work of Aleister Crowley, who was a major influence on Adolf Hitler, and who was initiated into the original Austro-German Rosicrucian circles, as Christian Scientist creator L.Ron Hubbard also claimed. In Crowley's "Magick in Theory and Practice" he explains the reasons for ritual death and why small boys are the best victims "It was the theory of the ancient magicians that any living being is a storehouse of energy varying in quantity according to the size and health of the animal, and in quality according to its mental and moral character. At the death of this animal this energy is liberated suddenly. For the highest spiritual working, one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim." Crowley adds in a footnote that according to the records of the Order of the Oriental Templars' Frater Perurabo, he performed just such a sacrifice 150 times every year between 1912 and 1928.

Reports by Britain's highly regarded newspaper The Sunday Times gave accounts of witnesses describing "Black Masses in which children were killed in front of audiences including prominent members of Belgian society". One investigator said "It was like going back to the Middle Ages". This activity has been linked to Belgium's notorious child murderer Marc Dutroux (who still awaits trail since his arrest in 1996) and France's "paedophile murder ring" which came to light at the same time following many high-profile arrests. In an interview with Dutch TV Dutroux refered to a "network with all kinds of criminal activities" responsible for money laundering, multiple passport identities and illegal off-shore banking. Documentation recovered by police was signed by someone describing himself as the Egyptian God Anubias requesting "presents" for the High Priestess of the Order, and gave specific details of the age and sex the victims must be. Britain's Scotland Yard crime squad also began major investigations into organized ritual abuse and murder within the British Isles.

It is interesting to note that Gardner's prefect Prince Michael Stewart, a Belgian by birth, whose titles include President of the European Council of Princes, Grand Protector of the Imperial and Royal Dragon Court, Grand Master of the Knights Templar, Archpriest of the Celtic Church, and a member of the influential Knights of Malta, only recently returned to Scotland after living all of his life in Belgium.

Recent extraordinary claims by the semiotically-inspired revelations of British author David Icke could easily be dismissed as lunacy, if it were not for their authentication by Gardner and Drakenberg. Icke's claims that "the aristocracy are shape-shifting Reptilians from outer space who consume children", are no more bizarre than Gardner's "Genesis of the Grail Kings" that candidly admits that their Annunaki ancestors were "serpentine" in appearance, and not only "came down from another dimension" but sustained their power by snorting "a white powder alchemically converted from their stocks of gold". Perhaps the Annunaki were the first drug pushers, and history is their bad trip?

Gardner's claim to be a "Guardian of the Creachaire Portal" may give some idea of what is summoned from the dark recesses of their deeply disturbed psyches. While their minds may appear to be sane, their souls are definitely mad. A Heart of Darkness thirsts for socio-economic-political power, in an attempt to avoid facing the truth of his own inevitable demise.

The Aryan aristocratic bloodlines are not from outer space, but simply came down from the Black Sea region at the beginning of civilization. Recent archeological discoveries by "Titanic" explorerer Robert Ballard deep beneath the Black Sea have revealed submerged ancient dwellings and evidence of a Great Flood, which may have created the Black Sea over 7000 years ago. As the Mediterranean Sea overflowed into the region, the washed-out Scythian/Aryan tribes, no doubt angered by the actions of their Annunaki Gods, were forced South towards the early agricultural settlements of Sumer. The hunter/gatherer Aryan tribes promptly enslaved the agricultural tribes of Sumer, and declared themselves their rulers. The Aryans became kings not because of any Divine ordination or extraterrestrial superiority, but simply because they were ruthless and violent predators, apparently with a grudge against God and Nature. And they have been on top ever since, with the same cynical "Paradise Lost" mentality that seeks comfort in the illusion of Power, and the sadistic control of the lives of others.

This deluded perception of reality, not only by the Power Elite, but equally through the unconscious mytho-poetic beliefs of orthodox Roman Catholicism, ultimately led to the schizophrenic crack-up of Nazi Germany, and brought us to the brink of Armageddon.

If these same beliefs prevail, will the World face a similar fate in the 21st Century?

The choice is yours...

Original Sin

The concept of Original Sin stems from the myth of the separation of Man from God, as described in the story of the Fall from the Garden of Eden. Most cultures have a similar myth to this Judeo-Christian story, and all are an attempt to explain how Humanity became separated from his Divine and Eternal nature.

When Adam and Eve eat from the apple of the Tree of Life, they are beiginning the journey of Understanding and Self-Knowledge. This act is a positive and necessary act, and yet has been perceived by the theology of organized Religion as a negative act, and therefore a Sin.

Holy Roman Catholic theologian Saint Augustine developed these ideas further during the formative years of the Church. In his early years, Saint Augustine had himself been a member of a Gnostic Christian ecstasy cult called Manichaeism that was widespread throughout Europe at this time, and was founded by the prophet Mani in the third century. The teachings of this cult included sexual ritual and ritualized "possession". By the time Augustine switched his allegiences to the Roman Catholic Church, Manichaeism had nearly as many followers as the orthodox Church, and was seen as a very real threat to Rome. Augustine spent his life intellectually attacking and demonizing the ideas and practices that he had once followed.

Central to Augustine's new concepts was the idea of "Original Sin". He argued that Original Sin was a literal and incurable disease that was passed to each child through the very act of sexual intercourse that had conceived the child. Thus, Original Sin was an incurable sexually transmitted disease. However, the Church also claimed to have the invisible cure to this invisible disease. Through the act of Baptism, the first stage of the treatment is applied. The child will be safe if he or she continues to follow Church dogma and partake of its necessary Sacraments, which are a continuation of the treatment. Weekly doses of the "Holy Spirit" through the Mass and Holy Eucharist, as well as regular Confessions of one's current Sins, both literal and imagined, ensure a clean medical record is maintained. Sex must be avoided at all costs as it is the ultimate regression into the state of Original Sin. As women were the "temptresses" of the all-male priests and theologians, they too were seen as dangerous contributors to the spread of Sin and Disease.

This concretization of Original Sin as a literal disease is the root of racism within the Roman Catholic Church. Those who did not accept Baptism and enter the Church were now harborers of a deadly sexually transmitted disease. From this time onwards Jews throughout Europe, who by nature of their culture and religion had not been baptised, were feared and victimized as carriers of Original Sin. During outbreaks of very real disease such as Bubonic Plague, Jews were massacred and burned for having spread the disease.

A similar attitude was taken to Native Americans first encountered in 1492. These unbaptised indigenous people were accused of introducing the sexually transmitted disease syphilis that ravaged Europe until the discovery of penicillin. Indeed, the current scientific belief states that no cases of syphilis had been encountered in Europe up until this time, whereas a single skull of a Native American girl with characteristic jaw-bone deformation is seen as evidence of one born with syphilis. However, the prominent "Pompeii syphilis" case has been largely ignored by the scientific community. The famous volcanically preserved bodies of Pompeii include two victims with prominent pelvic bone deformation, a tell-tale sign of prolonged genital syphilis. It is ironic that it is the Native American population who are blamed for a fatal incarnation of Original Sin, when it was these same people who were the innocent victims of European smallpox, measles, influenza, mumps, scarlet fever, diphtheria and plague, which ultimately claimed as many as 250 million indigenous people in the "New Worlds". As a German missionary testified in 1699 "The Indians die so easily, that the bare look of a Spaniard causes them to give up the ghost".

In fact, syphilis was historically embraced by the Roman Catholic Church as evidence of God's support of their theories of Original Sin. In 1826 Pope Leo XII banned the use of condoms because they prevented "the immoral evildoers from suffering diseases as are the just punishment for their Sin". The current AIDS pandemic has been perceived in a similarly perverse moral way. Pope John Paul II and the Catholic Church continue to outlaw and fervently oppose the use of life-saving condoms throughout the world. Like Baptism's purification of Man's Original Sin, they claim that only they have the invisible cure to this incurable disease. If one joins the Church and accepts their dogma, one will refrain from having sexual intercourse, therefore avoiding the inevitable consequences of God's wrath. Abstinence from sex and sin is the only way not to catch a fatal sexually transmitted disease and die of Original Sin.

If we return to the Garden of Eden and investigate the true meaning of the act of the eating of the apple of knowledge and its consequences, we will see that the sex act is in fact far from being a sin of any kind. Adam and Eve live in a state of innocent perfection within the Divine realm of Unity in the Garden. However, like children they are unconscious of their particular and special individuality as "created by God" and are therefore impotent of their own God-like individual self-expression and creativity. They enjoy the garden but add nothing to it, and are not responsible for it. By eating the apple of knowledge they begin to become aware of their individuality. This starts them on a journey of Self-Discovery through the suffering of loneliness and lack of unity with each other and with God. Through the act of sexual intercourse Adam and Eve are ritualistically re-forming themselves as the unified pair of opposites that they originally perceived themselves to be. Like the journey of the child through to adulthood, as individuality is more deeply perceived and felt as separation, sexual desire is increased.

Thus, the act of sex far from being negative or evil, as perceived by the Roman Catholic Church, is in fact Humanity's most fundamental way of saying "I am lonely and I want to experience you".

This is the only pathway back to the Garden of Eden where individuality and unity are the perfect expression of the Divine.

Ironically, it is known by historians that the Jesuit educated Adolf Hitler was convinced that the slight deformity of his penis (his urethal orifice opened around the back of the gland) was genetically inherited syphilis. In this paranoid delusion he reasoned that his ailment was entirely the fault of unbaptized Jews, who harbored sexually transmitted "Original Sin" in the form of syphilis.

Clearly, the dogmatic teachings of the Roman Catholic Church are leading Humanity away from the Garden of Eden, and into the repressed abyss of loneliness, fear, and insanity.

The Hero

The Hero has existed throughout all of Humankind's history, fighting the Villian and the Darkness of the world, in reality, and as a mythic and fictional figure.

Whether he is pulling Humanity back from the brink of the Abyss, or pushing them forward into a visionary future, the Hero is ultimately an ordinary person, who when faced with extraordinary challenges, searches within themselves for the courage to overcome the odds.

As is documented carefully in scholar Joseph Campbell's life-long study of Myth, all cultures seek to understand the secret that the Hero appears to possess. Through stories ranging as widely as the Christ and Buddha myths, to Greek legend and Native American folk tales, right up to Hollywood superheroes such as Indiana Jones and Luke Skywalker, Humanity has understood that by indentifying with the Hero, they are ultimately indentifying with the Eternal aspect of themselves. This part of them that has no fear of death, and understands that unity and equality through compassion, is the true and immortal state of all Humankind.

It is clear, therefore, that both cultural and fictional Heroes are not only admired for the daunting obstacles they overcome, but more importantly, for their clear vision of a better and fairer world.

One particularly poignant Native American myth explains a visionary concept that fits perfectly into the modern challenges presented by an ever more unified and global world. In this concept, each and every person's actions directly affects anothers. This unique view of cause and effect states that every single decision that a person makes throughout an hour, a day, or a lifetime, can be informed either by fear and hatred, or by love and hope. Simply by choosing which of these feelings will inform our decisions, we can choose the path of the Hero, instead of the delusion of the Villain.

This simple idea is expressed in the core of the Great Religions like Judeo-Christianity, Islam and Buddhism, and yet it is its very simplicity, that has become lost.

Perhaps the world needs to be reminded that the Hero is not a hero because he wins, or achieves, but because he chooses to fight against Darkness, for Love. Similarly, a Villain does not have to be simply murderous and corrupt, but needs only to stand in opposition to Love.

There are great heroes to fight great villains, but it is also necessary for there to be many less prestigious heroes, to fight the many less prestigious villains and petty tyrants. Every life by its very nature contains within it a Hero Journey, and when one sees with the eyes of one's Inner Hero, it is clear that Destiny delivers unique custom-made challenges to be overcome, for each individual who heeds the call to adventure.

Courage, heart and brains may be the qualifications, but the rewards are great, and always the same...

Freedom, understanding, and connection to the Divine!

The Ghetto Matrix

The “Ghetto,” as we know it today, is a sham - a fabrication similar to the world created inThe Matrix. The contemporary ghetto is a virtual reality (or more accurately: an actual surreality) that its inhabitants have accepted, without question, as the actual reality of Black folks. When the marketing power of the ghetto was realized, it was quickly decided that it must be harnessed. It happened quietly. First, was the development of a cleaner cousin named “Urban.” Then, almost overnight all the old style, long-term measures employed to control the ghetto like drugs and violence and the new immediacy of popular culture and instant sex were coalesced into the creation of the “ghetto matrix,” a new way of reining in the population and generating revenue simultaneously.
Manipulating the generational rift that exists in all communities, the inhabitants of the ghetto matrix were split from their elders. The elders, alive before the creation of the ghetto matrix can perceive its existence, but don’t have the power to define it. The last two generations born within the ghetto matrix can’t imagine living without it. These last two generations, and all those to follow, have been born and bred solely to be harnessed for their power as producers and consumers of ghetto commodities, like the previous generations were born and bred to be slaves, then sharecroppers, then low wage service and factory workers, then…now. They are just like the crops of human beings that were powering The Matrix.

The inhabitants, in return for their output, get to live in a fantasy, a world of no personal responsibility. It’s a world ruled by the primacy of emotion, of action and not comprehension, where you can do anything you want to anybody you want (except leave). But in this matrix, like the one in the movie, all consequences ripple invisibly back to reality. The repercussions, although invisible, always hit the unsuspecting inhabitants hard. The ghetto is a profitable commodity. Its stifling poverty and artificially limited opportunities are a fertilizer for its inhabitants’ ability to produce and consume. The ghetto must be maintained in order to continue and increase the revenue it generates. The inhabitants are simply batteries charging the revenue machine.

Well, how can a place of often extreme poverty be worth so much money? If the cracked asphalt is the soil, and poverty the fertilizer, what grows in these conditions are the cash crop. The inhabitants are the crops, the commodity. Their physical bodies are the commodities. Their bodies generate income in the obvious way through the drugs or bullets that get pumped into them. Their bodies generate income through the satellite industries based around violence and the illusion of its prevention. Their bodies are the test subjects for pharmaceutical companies, looking for chemical solutions to the highly profitable market of crime control.

Their bodies generate income in the spaces they occupy whether in an overpriced slumlord’s apartment or a cell owned and operated by the rapidly growing private prison industry. Or a spot in the rapidly growing privatization of the public school systems, or a spot in a parochial school subsidized by voucher programs.

Their bodies generate income by the imagesthey create for the welfare verification ID card manufacturers or for the producers of low budgeted “reality-based” TV programs likeCopsorWorld’s Scariest Police Chases.Or the gun manufacturers who use these images to sell their products to the suburbs. Their images sell newspapers, books and magazines. Their bodies generate income by how they areadorned, whether it’s with the purchase of extreme jewelry or designer fashions, or by the development of fashion and cultural trends for the future, to be emulated and distributed by the outside world, then sold back to the inhabitants of the ghetto matrix. Their bodies are the crops and the fuel for new revenue streams. As long as the fertilizer of poverty is rich, the soil will always produce new and innovative industries.

When the battery is used up (or dies prematurely), the ghetto matrix is so well designed, it has already encouraged the inhabitants to reproduce, creating more batteries to replace the ones that have burned out. They are all of course, expendable. Companies are encouraged to use as many as they need to create greater and greater margins of profit. Like the Matrix in the movie, the ghetto matrix was developed to protect, maintain and enrich itself. It has evolved to be self-perpetuating, requiring little upkeep to stay functioning. It is not in the creators interest for the people to escape. The inhabitants are discouraged from leaving both physically and mentally. Substandard public education combined with an availability of guns, drugs, and sex and a omnipresent popular “urban” culture, beamed into the matrix that urges indulgence in all three, prevents the inhabitants from even looking for an exit. The inhabitants have no idea that the world they live in has been manufactured from the outside, and that their dreams and desires have been given to them.

The ghetto matrix’s deftest maneuver is convincing the inhabitants to believe in the unreality so strongly, that they exhort their fellow inhabitants to “keep it real,” to uphold the codes and subsystems necessary to maintain the matrix. Its influence is so powerful that those whose parents escaped before the ghetto matrix’s creation find themselves clamoring to get back in for fear of losing out on some authentic Black experience. Those who fail to “keep it real” are punished, by threats of violence or far worse, by being denied authenticity in the highly commodified (and profitable) realms of blackness. The tragic irony is that the so-called authenticity the inhabitants fight so dearly for has been designed and programmed into them by the creators of the ghetto matrix.

This has spawned an industry of well paid pundits - people who do not live in the ghetto matrix, but report on it, theorize on it, analyze it and philosophize on it. There are two types only: Those that attack the inhabitants and those that defend the inhabitants. Neither group has expressed any interest in the ghetto matrix itself. Both groups maintain the ghetto matrix in their heads. They have to, for fear of losing their authenticity. If authenticity is lost, then so is profitability.

Some “Pro-matrix” commentators, ambassadors to the realer world, even urge the outsiders to see the ghetto matrix as a “new” reality, that the inhabitants are actually pioneers in a rebellious, anti-mainstream, alternative lifestyle. While stopping short of beseeching the outside world to enter (that might be too dangerous) they do urge the purchasing of products that represent the lifestyle associated with the ghetto matrix. The ghetto matrix provides a fantasy in which outsiders can participate vicariously without risking the requisite dangers the inhabitants face every day. What else could explain the fact that 72% of the consumers of ghetto matrix music are from the outside? The distributors of ghetto matrix music know their consumers don’t want stories of ghetto love but stories of ghetto tragedy. It’s thrilling and they provide new and innovative artists to satisfy the demand. Outsiders are often overheard saying, “Human beings couldn’t really live that way,” while their children who are purchasing the CD’s and baggy jeans say; “I wish I could live that way.” All watch with unblinking fascination. A few brave souls actually enter the ghetto matrix on safari tours to interact with the inhabitants in their artificial environment knowing that they can leave whenever they wish. The inhabitants, programmed to perform, unknowingly give a great show day after day, thus completing the circle and maintaining the matrix.

Knights of Malta

The Sovereign Military Order of Malta, also known as the original Sovereign Military Order of St. John of Jerusalem, is a closed fraternity of the Roman Catholic Church. Its initiated members must be Catholic and have served in the military. They participate in secret ceremonies and feudal ritual dress, and embrace a strong class/caste mentality as part of their initiation into Rosicrucian dogma.

The upper grades are fastidiously aristocratic and must be able to display a family coat-of-arms dating back at least 300 years in unbroken succession from father to son. The Sovereign Grand Master of the order is recognized as a head of state, and his authority is ensured by his secular ranking as a Prince, and his ecclesiastical ranking as a Cardinal. Under international law this organization has independent Sovereign status, which assures nationalistic loyalty from its members, above and beyond allegience to their own country--they also have Permanent Observer status at the United Nations. The current Grand Master, Andrew Willoughby Bertie, is descended from Mary Stuart (Mary Queen of Scots) which places him firmly in the Sion/Grail historical scenario.

The order and its members have been proven to be linked with the "Rat Run", the post-WWII escape route used by high-ranking Nazis and death camp scientists from defeated Germany to the Americas. Sovereign Knight of Malta passports were issued with false identities that allowed escape from prosecution for war crimes. Perversely, after the war the order's highest decoration, the 'Grand Cross of Merit', was awarded to Nazi General Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's Eastern Front intelligence chief, who was highly complicit in the atrocities carried out by the Nazis in Russia and Eastern Europe - mainly the unprecedented slaughter of Jews and civilian Slavs.

The brotherhood's Catholic and aristocratic roots made the modern knights fervently anti-communist. The order has been largely responsible for the construction of the CIA, and many of its global covert operations. The founding fathers of the CIA William "Wild Bill" Donovan and Allen Dulles were knights, as were many other CIA hierarchy including Ronald Reagan's director William Casey and JFK's director John McCone. According to "Watergate" journalist Carl Bernstein, Casey gave Pope John Paul II unprecedented access to CIA intelligence including spy satellites and agents.

In fact, one could blame the start of the Cold War upon "Wild Bill" Donovan personally. At the end of the First World War Donovan led a secret mission to Siberia to observe the Russian Revolution. Due to his reconnaissance an American unit was sent to fight the Russian Bolsheviks who were broadly considered Allies, as they were still fighting the Germans alongside the British and the French in the trenches of Europe. The American troops could not understand why they were being ordered to burn the villages and kill "these poor and hungry peasants, who've been treated so terribly by their rulers", as one "doughboy" wrote to his wife. It is historically un-American to side with the aristocratic powers of Europe against the common man. Donovan's motives for fighting the Bolsheviks could only have been due to his Vatican/Knights of Malta allegiances, as at this time the Russian Revolution was no threat to the American Republic. As a consequence in July 1944 Pope Pius XII awarded Donovan the 'Grand Cross of the Order of St. Sylvester', the oldest and most prestigious of papal knighthoods, and the highest Catholic award ever received by an American. Less than one hundred men have received this award throughout history.

The Knights of Malta's key spheres of control are Africa and Latin America, and include many dictators such as mass murderer General Pinochet in their ranks.

Membership in Latin America includes Masonic lodge "P2" fascists and many surviving Nazi players, who are directly responsible for the formation of the modern neo-Nazi movement. Knight and Nazi escapee Otto "Scarface" Skorzeny, who led a commando raid on the Cathar region of France in search of occult artifacts including the Holy Grail, played a major role in the Vatican's "Rat Run". He was a close friend of Argentinian president and knight Juan Peron, who recent CIA documents prove was also involved in the laundering of Nazi gold through the Vatican Bank. Conveniently for Nazi members who did not escape Europe, William Donovan served as chief aide to the American prosecutor at the post-war Nuremberg trials, after handing over the reigns of the OSS/CIA to fellow knight Allen Dulles.

As Roman Catholic author Penny Lernoux reveals in her "People of God": "After the war, the Vatican, the OSS, the SS, and various branches of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta joined to do battle against the common Soviet enemy - and to help Nazi war criminals escape... Baron Luigi Parrilli, an Italian aristocrat and Knight of Malta/papal chamberlain, took part in negotiations between SS leaders and the CIA's Allen Dulles."

Prior to working for the OSS (he headed the OSS station in Switzerland during the war) Allen Dulles and his law partner John Foster had served as business managers and lawyers to John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil. They personally brokered the partnership between Standard Oil and I.G. Farben chemical corporation. I.G.Farben not only produced gasoline for the Nazi war machine, it manufactured "Zyklon B", used slave labor before and during the war (including their huge petro-chemical factory adjacent to Auschwitz death camp), owned Bayer Pharmaceuticals which according to a current lawsuit was directly involved in Dr. Josef Mengele's horrific Auschwitz experiments, and was spared from Allied bombings due to its Rockefeller interests. Leading war-time journalist George Seldes attempted to reveal this "unholy alliance" through his newspaper articles, but was rarely published at the time, and efforts were made to kill him. Joseph Heller's satirical novel "Catch 22" made light of this insanity with his "we agreed to bomb our own bases in return for the Nazis buying our chocolate covered cotton".

As the Cold War intensified, former Vatican agent and knight Joseph H. Retinger, acting on behalf of the Vatican and the Priory of Sion, effectively forged ties with the European Council of Princes (the respectable name for the Dragon Sovereignty), the CIA, and Britain's MI6 to create the New World Order think-tank "The Bilderberg Group", of which Henry Kissinger is a permanent member. It's first chairman was Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, who held that position for the next 22 years, until a financial scandal forced him to resign. His daughter, Shell Oil co-owner Queen Beatrix regularly attends meetings, as do ample other European aristocratic players. The undemocratic "Bilderberg Group" continues to play a major part in international affairs, and remains closed to public scrutiny and participation.

Documents show that New York's Cardinal Francis Spellman was directly involved in the 1954 right-wing military coup of Guatemala, which led to the murder of thousands, and of which the CIA has acknowledged complicity. He has also been linked to neo-Nazi group "P2" and the Mafia by his long involvement with "P2" member Archbishop Paul Marcinkus of Chicago, former head of the Vatican Bank, who was under serious suspicion by Italian authorities for the untimely death of Pope John Paul I. Cardinal Spellman was not only an old friend of CIA creator "Wild Bill" Donovan (who previously had a law firm in New York) but was the actual head of the Knights of Malta in America throughout the 40's, 50's and 60's, and was responsible for vast sums of money raised from its members, who have to pay thousands annually to remain in the order.

The Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) are ideologically and historically allied with international Freemasonry, ultimately sharing the same goal of bloodline supremacy, whether their members accept this or not. The Masonic grades of The Knight of Malta and The Knight Templar are the Rosicrucian upper-degrees of Freemasonry, and clearly reveal their heritage.

According to "Knights of Darkness" author Francois Hervet: "Freemasonry generally purports to be hostile to Catholicism... nevertheless in December of 1969 an exclusive meeting was held in the Rome office of Count Umberto Ortolani, the ambassador of the Knights of Malta to Uruguay, who has been called 'the brains' behind the "P2" Masonic lodge. In addition to Ortolani, the meeting included only Licio Gelli, Roberto Calvi, and Michele Sindona"; all of whom have been implicated in the death of Pope John Paul I and massive bank fraud.

Ironically, in recent years a belief in the Catholic faith has not been an essential prerequisite for potential members who have the right connections. Non-aristocratic parties can now be initiated by the "Magistral Grace" of the Grand Master, although not in Britain, Germany and other European countries with a strong tradition of nobility. However, this has allowed many Americans to join, and an "Order of Merit" is bestowed upon those who have outstandingly served the Knights or their works. Past Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush are such honorary initiates, and Reagan was the toast of an extravagant dinner held by the Order in 1989.

With more than 11,000 knights worldwide, the Grand Master and Sovereign Council remain based in Rome. Their goal of political Feudalism is clearly seen in the actions of Prince Hans Adam II, the Habsburg-supported ruling monarch of Liechtenstein, and a prominent Knight of Malta and member of the Vatican's Opus Dei, who in October 1999 was reprimanded by the European Court of Human Rights for claiming he had final constitutional authority over his country's Supreme Court.

The Protestant equivalent of the Catholic Knights of Malta, also known as the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, gained greater credibility when the head of the British Empire HM Queen Victoria became their Sovereign Head in 1888. This Order of St. John, whose current Sovereign Head is HM Queen Elizabeth II, similarly use the Cross of Malta insignia as their emblem. While they too claim that charity and protecting the poor are their main cause, this has been used as a tool of Western Imperialism for the last 1000 years, and began with the first Crusades to occupy Jerusalem. These "charitable concerns" are unlikely to take precedence over their secret historical agenda--the fulfillment of the prophecies of St. John the Divine, whose Revelation acts as a political template for these historically-intoxicated and reactionary-minded organizations. It is additionally disturbing that the Protestant Order of St. John was recently granted non-Governmental membership of the United Nations. Like its Catholic counterpart, this UN position gives the Protestant Order greater access to UN decision-making and vulnerable developing countries. Undoubtedly, the interests of the Vatican, the British Crown, and its Rosicrucian fraternity, will take precedence over any genuine aid offered to the world's poorest and needy.

The unusually shaped Cross of Malta was the original emblem of the controversial Knights Templar, who were based in Malta, and was adopted as the official insignia of the Knights of Malta, when the Knights Templar were forced to submit to the authority of the Vatican.

Occult initiates will discover that just like the inverted pentagram or five-pointed star, the Cross of Malta is similarly a cryptogram for the Goat of Mendes, the androgenous Templar idol Baphomet, representing the goat's beard and horns.

This is the symbol of ruling matter and spirit by the Will, and the controlled magickal direction of sexual energies.

Past Grand Masters of the Knights of Malta, including Manuel de Fonseca, are known to have been initiates of the Templar tradition, and according to the Dragon Order's current Sovereign Grand Master Prince Nicholas de Vere von Drakenberg, who is a direct descendant of the originator of the Knights Templar Godfroi de Vere de Bouillon, the Templars were "a Satanic order, whose rituals included infanticide, sodomy and witchcraft".

Freemasonry

The initiates of this closed brotherhood pursue mystical enlightenment through ritual based on ancient alchemical and occult teachings, although at street level Freemasonry is no more than a charitable networking fraternity.

Little is revealed to its brothers about the most high-ranking members and rituals of this organization that has over five million followers worldwide. Initiation and secrecy have always been Freemasonry's currency since its mainstream development in the 18th century, from the merging of the many craft guilds with the mystically-inspired knightly orders.

Ideas of absolute loyalty, secrecy and misinformation are so intrinsic to the structure of Freemasonry that even those already initiated to the official highest ranks, are not surprised to hear rumors of even more secret and elusive grades of initiation and power, which may not even be attainable to the most loyal brother.

As a small-town American Grand Master (also a PHD in Divinity and Baptist minister) notes in the foreword to "The Second Messiah" by Freemasons Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas: "I have been led to believe there is some truth to the accusations leveled against Masonry that only the top (HIGH) degrees know the truth". This mature Grand Master had been initiated into all of the official degrees, but would not have had an adequate lineage or attitude to progress further. It is said that a specific ritual involves being required to spit upon the crucified Christ - refusal to do so is commended as the correct response, and a sign of individual strength. However, it is thought that those who do desecrate the cross are rewarded with higher initiation.

Many conspiracy theories concerning Freemasonry exist in popular modern culture, however, the movement's international power and influence lie in its quasi-aristocratic ranks, the orders of the Knights Templar and the Knights of Malta, who as the "princes" of Freemasonry are required to pursue the evolution of Man's consciousness according to their Rosicrucian initiation and beliefs.

It is apparent that the acceptance of the craftsmen of the Renaissance by the knightly orders was an attempt by the aristocratic classes to keep control of the newly developing middle class, who were discovering great freedoms of expression, education and understanding. Thus, by the promise of initiation into mystical secrets, loyalty to the hidden aristocratic masters was ensured.

The feudal systems that were beginning to collapse all over Europe with the growth of democratic ideas had an opportunity to remain in absolute power, albeit now from behind the curtain.

According to Knight and Lomas the Grand Master of York Rite Freemasonry must always be a prince of royal blood, and the hereditary head of Scottish Rite Freemasonry, as decreed by King James II, must always be a St. Clair of Rosslyn, who rules over the Supreme Council of the 33rd degree based in Edinburgh. However, recent history has seen other Supreme Councils form to rival Edinburgh, particularly the Supreme Council in Washington DC. It is interesting to note that the world domination blueprint 'The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Sion' are signed by the "Representatives of Sion of the 33rd degree", and that within the five Knights Templar priories the senior officials are refered to as "the Elders". However, these historically incendiary plans came to be (and still are) attributed to the Jewish people, and were a major cause of the Holocaust.

At the tip of the power pyramid there have always been claimants to the iconic position of "supreme scion" of the entire aristocratic Dragon and Grail bloodlines - as is currently the case with Prince Nicholas de Vere, Prince Michael Stewart, and Prince Otto von Hapsburg. This ultimate authority within the secret power structures is what makes general Freemasonry so open to manipulation. As Tobias Churton states in his book "The Gnostics", also an excellent British TV series:

"Discovered in Hungary among the archives of the Festetics family in 1893 was a document entitled Aureum Vellus seu Fratrum Rosae Crucis (1761). It shows a hierarchical system founded in 1757, influenced by Freemasonry and linked with the same. It outlined the nine grades of Junior, Theoreticus, Practicus, Philosophus, Adeptus Exemptus, Magister, and Magus. These grades were to form the basis of grade systems of Masonic or quasi-Masonic Rosicrucian systems which have continued to the present day. The system presented inherent problems which have beset such organizations ever since - the greatest problem being that of Authority. All goes well until there is a scandal or a dispute about the direction of the Order. At such time, the Superiors are sought - always in vain - when, frequently, a mystagogue appears who claims that he or she has opened a direct line to the new archon (and may therefore be demonic) and is to be obeyed thereon."

Sex and the Paranormal

Most ancient cultures include some form of sexual ritual. The powerful opportunities lying behind the unity of the male and female energies and the possibility of creation make the sex act an obvious choice for ritualization.

While Pagan cultures used sexual ritual to align with the fertile energies of the Universe through hedonistic Bacchanalian/Dionysian abandonment, Gnostic Christianity adopted more complex Eastern philosophy. The ancient religious discipline of Tantra, from which Tibetan Tantric Buddhism and orthodox Hinduism have developed, teaches that mystical enlightenment can be achieved through the careful ritualization of sensuality.

Unlike the ancient shamanic traditions from which it developed, Tantra taught the strict disciplining of Mind and Body to create an acute awareness and opening to the dual male/female energies of the Universe, and thus the ability to understand and experience the Unity of the Divine. Simply put, it is the transmutation of desire and experience into an authentic understanding. When Tantric ideas reached the Middle East from India, ecstasy cults such as the Nazarenes and the Mandeans sprung into being.

Scholars now believe that the Historical Christ belonged to one such cult, and from the crossing of the two cultures, Gnostic Christianity emerged. The Celts were the first Europeans to embrace Gnosticism recognizing the similarity in symbolism, and so Celtic Christianity quickly emerged. Unlike the Holy Roman Catholic Church, it understood the sexual ideas of the teachings of the Historical Christ. Transmutation of sexuality rather than repression of sexuality created a distinctly different form of Christianity, which is illustrated clearly on the covers of the first Christian Bibles that depict the crucified Jesus with an enormous erection, as displayed in London's British Museum.

Celtic Christianity was destroyed by the Holy Roman Empire, but Christian Gnosticism saw a renaissance in Europe in the 12th Century. Surviving Pagan nature cult followers again embraced Christian Gnosticism, but a split between the Holy Roman Empire and the Holy Roman Church caused the marginalization and eventually demonization of Tantric/Gnostic ideas. In order to consolidate dogmatic power, theologians within the Church cast out sexuality from within ideas of spirituality.

As we see today in most modern Christian traditions, sexuality far from offering a path to enlightenment, if embraced is seen to offer only a path to misery, destruction and perhaps even Hell.

It is no coincidence that the inversion of AMOR, meaning love, is ROMA. Evidence of Rome's demonization of Tantra is clearly displayed by the Holy Eucharist, which is the centerpoint of the Catholic Mass.

A particular Indian Tantric ritual, the Five Enjoyments, which is a celebration of life through the appreciation of fine meat, bread, fish, wine and sex, became to the Gnostic Christians the sharing of Bread and Wine as is illustrated in the story of the Last Supper. It is pertinent that the meaning behind the echoed rituals of the Catholic Eucharist were radically altered in the turbulent 12th Century by St.Thomas Aquinas. The bread and wine of the "five enjoyments" became the transubstantiated and literal body and blood of Christ. The celebration of life was now a celebration of death through a vampiric act of cannibalism.

This fundamental alteration in the approach to simple human pleasures may go some way to explaining the repressed and violent nature of the European Christian cultures that have since spread throughout the world.
