1. In Dune, the Bene Gesserit order plant seeds of mythology across the universe through the so-called Missionaria Protectiva, “the black arm of superstition”. These mythic shapes can then be exploited by the Sisterhood for political gain, or for survival in distress.
There is an approximately gnostic view of things widespread in our culture; one could delineate it thus: there is something wrong with the world; we are often alienated from either our true selves and/or from true knowledge of the world; there is a group of enemies behind this unhappy state; there is some way to arrive at power or knowledge. The Matrix, Christianity; Buddhism to some degree.
i don’t see this in Norse paganism, but then all we really have are tales and occasional maxims (the frost giants aren’t really evil, indeed there seems no notion of evil as such); and i don’t know enough about Islam or Judaism to say.
i realise increasingly how little my own “paganism” would make sense to one of the real pagans back in the day, being as it is of a somewhat Christian tinge – that particular strange blend (as i see it) of Greek philosophy and Judaism. The old pagans i guess were really more like Varg Vikernes, who seems to me really unadulterated by either Greek abstraction or Judaic tendencies; in a sense, he could seem to be not really all that “religious”, because we now see religion in inherently Christian terms.
2. Personally, i feel that the gnostic myth i describe above is actually true; that there are malevolent non-physical forces who wish to destroy any human capacity for spiritual enlightenment, and for goodness, and decency, and that there are earthly groups who more or less embody this malevolence.
And i think a sizeable minority of people share this basic supposition, because it is true, whether they are shrieking Feminists, or Alex Jones, or me.
Right now, many politicians are instinctively tapping into this passionate suspicion/paranoia. i doubt they even realise what they are doing; the Left (currently very odd bedfellows such as cultural Marxists, old-school Communists, and financial neo-cons/neo-liberals like the Clintons – mostly scum) have been engaged in a deliberate conspiracy against the West for over a century, and they have been winning for exactly that long; and so perhaps they naturally dream of an all-powerful Putin putting the puppet Trump on the throne, because conspiracy is what they do, and as Vox Day would say, Social Justice Warriors always project.
As the mainstream media and the political/financial elites go for Trump and anyone not fully indoctrinated into the Left, they appeal to the general gnostic paranoia – vague but vehement accusations of “fake news” and of backstage political machinations and hacking: almost the mirror image of the Clinton campaign, they only needed to accuse Trump of assassinating anyone who gets in his way, and of being surrounded by paedophiles and seedy occultists to complete the projection.
But by attacking Trump so vehemently, they also reinforce the suspicions of people such as myself. It doesn’t take much to see the lies of the media – you don’t even need to study the world as it is, the representation contains so many internal contradictions that sooner or later a reader should realise something is amiss. You would need to maintain “Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia” levels of self-deception not to notice. Saddam had WMDs, let’s destroy Iraq. Oh, he doesn’t have any. Syria has WMDs, that’s why we didn’t find them in Iraq – Saddam sold them to Assad. And so on. It could make for an eternal justification, in the year 2217 the Americans would be bombing South Korea to shit because “that’s why we didn’t find Saddam’s WMDs in Syria, because Assad sold them to Iran, and we didn’t find them in Iran after we bombed it to shit, because they had already sold them to Finland, and after bombing Finland we couldn’t find them because those tricky Finns had sold them to Varg Vikernes, what are you, a racist???” etc etc.
And so, for those on the Right the more the mainstream media attack Trump, the more credibility he gains – this preposterously-haired figure has in the last year gone from being an amusing celebrity businessman to something of a bizarre hero, because of those who attack him. For if you suppose the mainstream media to be owned by those who are either demonic or aligned with demonic intent (viz., to destroy all that is good in our civilisation and, more importantly, in our culture and genetic stock), then however bewildering the “wilderness of mirrors” (an Eliot line often quoted by James Jesus Angleton) you can penetrate the lies and insinuations and half-truths and caveats by simply observing who the mainstream media hate, who they wish to destroy.
3. Here’s a good video on Obama and Trump by Razörfist:
As far as i can observe, the main reason people hate Trump isn’t because he’s done anything worse than Obama or Hillary – though that may be because making sexist remarks in private or failing to share his tax records doesn’t seem to me comparable to ordering drone strikes on civilians, supporting Black Lives Matter, or using the IRS to attack political opposition, or destroying Libya and thus opening Europe to mass invasion, but hey, i didn’t get a degree in Gender Studies so what do i know. To me, it seems that people hate Trump because he doesn’t simper and cry and demonstrate manipulative servility by using all the approved Politically Correct terms. When you compare him with Lyndon Johnson – who apparently liked to slap his huge Texan schlong down on the table to intimidate dissenters; or Nixon – who called Bohemian Grove “the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine”, Trump seems indeed really rather restrained.
Since i don’t actually care, and so haven’t spent hours researching the matter, it’s possible that Trump has done things worse than Obama and Hillary, but if so i wonder why all i hear is vague talk of him being “divisive” and “racist” and “sexist” and “Hitler” – most of these terms have also been applied to me, so i just shrug and think, Ja, und?
4. Trump and Varg Vikernes share a quality – neither seem to have the usual pre-emptive cringe of the modern man; they lack what one could call “the foreign installation” of self-censoring fear and the desire to conform. In the past, such men were more common, now very hard to find in the public sphere. Hence, a certain shock when confronted with a Trump – who seems to speak more or less extempore – after the crocodile tears of Obama, the truly hollow man.
5. i find that almost all my students fear and hate Trump, and when i ask for specific complaints, all they can say is “he is showing so ugly aus or? He is sounding angry. Obama war attraktiv and he speak so good or?”. Well, well.
Trump strikes me as a showman but not an actor; his show is his self, his brand is Trump. Personally, i don’t like the brand or the self; but i like the sense that the man on stage is always Donald Trump, that if he is playing a part, it is the part of Donald Trump and no one else.
By contrast, Obama is a consummate actor, a hypocrite whose only redeeming qualities are charisma and sloth. But then, i find it hard to feel much about Obama – there is even something half-likeable about this utterly empty and glib actor, compared to Hillary.
6. Many years ago, i read Hunter S Thompson’s gonzo interview with Bill Clinton. At the time i dismissed this, thinking “typical HST” – Thompson presented him with a saxophone reed, and:
Clinton stared balefully at the reed for what seemed like a very long time, like a Chimp peering into his first Mirror … There was a sense of puzzlement on his face as he silently pondered the thing.
It was an awkward moment, Bubba. Very awkward. Nobody knew how to handle it. He seemed unhappy, almost angry as he fondled the reed distractedly, saying nothing … Then he rolled his eyes back in his head and uttered a wild quavering cry that made my blood run cold.
The others tried to pretend that it wasn’t happening. We were, after all, in the South—and in some tangled way we were also the governor’s guests. Or maybe he was ours. Who knows? But there was no doubt at all that somebody was drifting over the line into unacceptable rudeness, and I didn’t think it was me. Greider was sobbing quietly, and P.J. sagged limply in his chair. Jann began jabbering frantically about “the Generation Gap.” A pall of helpless craziness came over the table, a sense of unknowable Doom . . .
Then the governor dropped the Reed on the table like it was just another half-eaten Potato scrap, brushing it blankly aside and suddenly smiling warmly at all of us, as if he had just emerged from a Pod and was happy to be among friends. “No more music,” he said firmly. “Let’s have some food, I’m hungry.” Then he grasped the wicker basket of French Fries with both hands and buried his face in it, making soft snorting sounds as he rooted around in the basket trying vainly to finish it off.
As ever with Thompson it’s difficult to judge because he felt no obligation to factual reporting, and weird things genuinely happened around him so often that sometimes his wilder rantings turn out to be, well, factual reporting. Thompson clearly was disturbed by Bill Clinton, and i suspect what actually happened is this: Clinton imitated a saxophone but it came off as a demonic howl, he was amused by the horror on everyone’s faces, and decided to demonstrate his dominance by eating like a pig. And that there was something so weird about the whole performance that Thompson decided to write it up as an episode of demonic possession.
7. One should not expect too much of Trump – he is surprising even to me; and yet he is exactly the Messiah one should expect: calculating, brusque, unspiritual, egotistical, intelligent, ordinary.
From my first real encounter with the demonic influence – in 1998 when i read my first Literary Theory nonsense (so ludicrous i initially thought it a hoax), through to my growing conservatism as i observed chav and Muslim at first hand in Leeds in 2004, i felt my vision clouded by the prevailing miasma of ignorance and delusion. When i attempted to pierce the fog of our times, i saw only the past, as it were a faint light from before my birth.
This fog parted in autumn 2015, when the globalists openly strove to destroy Europe by importing millions of Muslim rapists. Their own impatience (or perhaps calculated gamble, knowing the economic collapse was due) served for clarity. i became aware of Trump in 2016, and felt very quickly, – This is the chap.
Probably no one else could have achieved this. The few decent politicians in America lack Trump’s money and cunning and swagger; or had too much to gain or lose.
The powers that be have long been of demonic purpose and intent. The George Soroses, the Clintons, the socialists and shrieking menstrual Feminists and scimitar-waving Muslims, have been gloating over the wreckage of the West, delighted by every rape, every sexual assault, every murder, every incidence of chavvery and knavedom and horror. As they have allied themselves with demons, so they will be consumed.
They have enacted the ritual of desecration, and will be destroyed thereby.
