In Terror of a Savage Nation - Orwellian nightmare dawns on the West
Human identity is defined by the divine forces in which people believe or disbelieve. The one God of our tradition is the model for the individual, and a key instrument for our enslavement. Before God, the individual is like a tiny child, subject to the absolute authority from above. If God is all-powerful, the individual is ultimately powerless before his Judge. So one seeks to follow God's will and share in His glory. This is the origin of subservience. The cult of personality was used by Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, F.D.R., Churchill and a not so heavenly host of superstars and pop-stars throughout history. God is replaced by the great leader. Monotheism is converted into the tunnel vision of totalitarianism. The names may have been changed, but the under-lying principle is basically the same. Big Brother is everything; I am nothing. Self-consciousness is rooted in fear.
Enlightenment is a very fearful awakening and accessible only to those with the courage to stand against the maddening power of the established reality! Everything now appears to be a sham. The whole thing is a lie, the inescapable big lie of totalitarianism. Once one has gained the strength to endure the shocking madness of understanding this totalitarian system, many possibilities open to the liberated mind. This sense for the totality is not evil in itself; it is only our current misfortune that today's established order has chosen to pervert such a vision of brilliance into something horrifying.
Genius can open the minds of others, as well as repress human potential by driving a creative people into servitude. It is very telling that worldly wisdom so readily believes in the power of the State to close minds in an Orwellian nightmare, but is totally incredulous should the observation be made that everything is reversible that through the creative arts, the insight-out-look of mysticism can pare a petrified intelligence in-two ..genius. Those demoralized by this slave-State-with-a-beat should know that a dogmatic pessimism is not a position worth defending. On-line virtual dimensions of collective intelligence imply a language of multiple realities and many universes of meaning.
The artistry of how we think determines what we are able to think, and thus gives form to our possibilities. The secret of beauty is that it binds together all those it touches...as a fair witness to injustice with-stood by every-man blind-sided by the petrifying gays of tyranny. The privilege of a chosen few is procured at the expense of many abandoned to struggle in the raw sewage of a used up planet. Out of this hell, it must be hoped that fallen man will once again arise ....storming the heavens so that he might re-discover paradise now lost ....among the stars.
"Beauty preserves the intensity of its collective origins. Everything depends on your understanding that the greatest power is channeled through the most fragile beauty. The measure, which is the balance of our lives, is beauty. In struggling with the complexities of survival, we find ourselves forced more and more to replace rage with delicate dimensions of passion discovering that ultimately there is greater power and cohesive force in sensitivity than in malevolence."
