This is a time when to be part of the progressive agenda is to accede to evil. Evil. You have to cheer the prince of lies and to speak truth you have to hide. When on the mornings facebook feed there was a advertisement for Antifa NZ, who would dox me, harass my family, mock my faith, and complain to the amenable authorities about the fact that one of the academics in Otago still has a faith.
The pressure from the narrative breaks some people. As Vox Day commented, this is akin to a fork in the road. The example he is using is from Bruce Charlton, and an author who I don’t read or know, but it is akin to the scholar Lewis critiquted in the abolition of man . He is known now more for that than his book: and I fear that Gary Lackman will face the same fate.
I now find that I have not the heart to review Dark Star Rising in any kind of detail, as I intended. It’s not just that it is a very poorly researched book – in which all the evidence about the ‘Alt-Right’ comes from its mass media/ party political enemies (amazingly; nothing at all about the roots in Mencius Moldbug nor the current domination by Vox Day and his gang, to mention two egregious omissions).
This means that the straw man which Lachman is attacking is essentially just another variant of his own secular progressivism.
Lachman leaves out genuine religious reactionaries – or rather, explains-them-away; I think because he personally does not believe that people could genuinely and primarily be motivated by a religion (especially not Christianity) but that it is a front for reactionary (i.e. racist, sexist, ‘phobic’ politics). In his comments on Russia, it is clear that he regards the massive Christian revival there as a complete fake; a cover-up.
It’s not just that all kind of prejudicial assumptions are built-into this book’s argument – unexamined, undefined, untested – especially about key concepts like ‘extreme right wing’, ‘white supremacists’ (that mythical power bloc, consisting mainly of false flag operatives, subversive infiltrators and agents provocateurs) and the like: the slur words of the billionaire/ big-finance-subsidised Social Justice Warrior activists in the mass/ social media; in pressure-groups, NGOs and ‘charities; and dominating all powerful or well-funded institutions…
It seems just a waste of time to be specific in analysis and critique, because the book is written from that point of view of moral inversion which is mainstream among the Global Elites – so it is clear that Gary Lachman has been corrupted.
However valuable I found Gary Lachman’s earlier work; it is clear that he now has crossed the line, abandoned all his earlier standards of scholarship and fairness; and joined the forces of darkness. He has been confronted by a moment-of-truth, he has made a decision, he has taken a crucial step; and the process of corruption has apparently been very rapid.
This is why the amenable authorites allow the faithful to remain: in NZ vexations complaints are stopped cold by the commissioners: they have to work with those who do the work, and we give feedback if we are spending all our time with lawyers and not seeing patients. We are not wealthy enough to tolerate corruption. We need people who will have honour and will tell truth in our system.
The progressive lie is that you can do this without faith.
This is why I pay very little attention to atheists, agnostics, and pagans who believe they are opposed to globalism. Their belief is sincere, but they simply don’t understand the true nature of the war that presently engulfs Man. Despite their intentions, I expect that many, not most of them, will ultimately gravitate to the other side when push comes to shove.
Because, at the end of the day, you must either bend the knee to Jesus Christ or to the Prince of this World. You will be forced to choose a side and there will be a price. Standing proudly on your own is an illusion and it was never an option.
VD, Vox Popoli
When I looked at the text today I recalled a principle of the letters: we are commanded to do the thing we least want to. It is been my observation that men like silence and dislike praying: we are commanded to lift our hands in holy prayer, to pray for our leaders, pagan though they are, and our prayer is that we are to left alone.
Women, I observe, love to pray and love to talk. They are commanded to be silent. To trust. Women love fashion and clothing, and they are told not to flaunt it.
And above all, we are to fight. The battle is not in the trenches of politics. It is on the commanding heights, with powers and principalities. And here Christ has won already.
18 I am giving you these instructions, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies made earlier about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight, 19 having faith and a good conscience. By rejecting conscience, certain persons have suffered shipwreck in the faith; 20 among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have turned over to Satan, so that they may learn not to blaspheme.
1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. 3 This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human, 6 who gave himself a ransom for all —this was attested at the right time. 7 For this I was appointed a herald and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire, then, that in every place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or argument; 9 also that the women should dress themselves modestly and decently in suitable clothing, not with their hair braided, or with gold, pearls, or expensive clothes, 10 but with good works, as is proper for women who profess reverence for God. 11 Let a woman learn in silence with full submission. 12 I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she is to keep silent. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15 Yet she will be saved through childbearing, provided they continue in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
The West is being winnowed. We can be progressive, feminist, homophilic, transphilic… and we will fall. We will send the generations that follow into a dark age, where the ignorance of Islam will be accounted as enlightenment, and life will be brutal, short, oppressive and nasty. Or we can repent. We can choose Christ.
For once we were Christendom. Then, in our hubris, we thought we could build Jerusalem again, in our cold, damp, but green lands. That we could unite all peoples. That social equality would allow righteousness to flow like a river.
But that has led to despair in the home, mistrust in the marital bed, war outside our borders and the reaver raping and destroying within. Look at the consequences of policies and then judge: has the sexual revolution and the social justice movement led to peace and happiness? I think not.
And we are being asked to double down, and destroy the last islands of Sanity, starting with Ireland.
We can choose to continue or we can change.
Change. Do so now. Hard times will come, and the feckless will find the state, on which they rely, is now bankrupt. In the meantime, build your garden, raise your children, and pray.
That this feckless elite will allow us to be alone.
