Love’s Own Light

Whether unto grace or guilt, all must live through Him,
Live in vital joy, or live in dying woe:
Death in Adam, life in Christ; the curse hung upon the cross:
Who art thou that heedest of redemption, as narrower than the fall:
All were dead,–He died for all; that living, they might love:
If living souls withhold their love,–still, He hath died for them.
Eve stole the knowledge; Christ gave the life:
Knowledge and life are the perquisites of soul, the privilege of man:
Mercy stepped between, and stayed the double theft;
God gave; and giving, bought; and buying, asketh love:
And in such asking rendereth bliss, to all that hear and answer,
For love with life is heaven; and life unloving, hell.

-Martin Farquhar Tupper

We cannot understand the European people outside of their Christian history. Many modern conservatives have suggested we do so, that we treat the European people as a generic people who can be studied and probed in order to be cured, without ever considering their past history. But this is akin to the doctor who treats a patient for an illness without taking the patient’s medical history into account. We must take the European people’s Christian past into account if we are going to effectively eliminate the wasting disease, the disease of liberalism, which is killing them.

Satan countered God’s creation of man with a successful coup d’état in the Garden of Eden. He appealed to Adam and Eve’s pride of intellect in order to get them to renounce their filial relationship with God. They were told to forget the fairy tale about the tree with the forbidden fruit and embrace the reality of man’s intellect responding to and controlling cosmic nature. That coup d’état of Satan was countered by the incarnation of Christ, His subsequent death on the cross, and His resurrection from the dead. If you are Satan, how do you nullify Christ’s divine act of mercy? You do what you did before, you appeal to man’s pride of intellect.

The man who worships his own intellect has no room in his heart for the living God. Upon that principle, Satan has built his church, and he maintains that church by continually denigrating all human feelings that reside in the human heart. When we understand this stratagem of the devil, we can understand why the scholastic movement, the scientific study of God, is from the devil. The humane God, the living God who took flesh and dwelt among us, can only be known through the human heart. When the Catholic and the Protestant scholastics demonized the human heart in order to deify their intellects, they cut the European people off from God. We, like the Ancient Mariner, were cut adrift from the font of love:

Alone on a wide, wide sea,
So lonely ‘twas that God himself
Scarce seemed there to be.

Pope Francis the blasphemer was recently reported as saying that Jesus Christ was not the Son of God. You can dismiss Pope Francis as an isolated madman who doesn’t know what he is saying, but I do not see isolated madness in Pope Francis; I see the logical, maniacal, satanic madness of our age behind the anti-Christian ravings of Francis the blasphemer. What is the essence of our modern civilization? It is the pride of intellect, or to be more accurate, it is the pride of science. If you believe in the Christ story in its entirety – the creation of the world in seven days, the creation of man in the image of God, man’s fall from grace in the Garden of Eden, and Christ’s mission of divine mercy that was completed when He rose from the dead on the third day – you place yourself among the stupid people, the unscientific people who believe in fairy tales. Balzac summed up the essence of modernity when he remarked that, “In Paris if you tell a man he has a good heart, it is the same as telling him he is as stupid as a rhinoceros.” Yes, that expresses the issue quite succinctly. The antique Europeans, when viewed scientifically, are stupid. They believed, quite literally, in the Christ story.

The liberals’ worship of the negro is not based on a belief in the intrinsic worth of individual members of that race. In fact any time a person of color demonstrates a sympathy for the intrinsic moral value of the white people’s ancient civilization, he is condemned by the liberals. What the liberals worship when they worship the blacks is their own intellects. They are proving their superior ‘intelligence’ by worshipping that which is antithetical to the older, ‘stupid’ civilization of the white Europeans; they have made what is natural, the noble savage, their God. In their natural religion, racism, which is really white pietas, has become synonymous with stupidity. And who among us wants to be regarded as stupid? Isn’t intelligence the sign of our election? But what is the essence of our election? To what and to whom are we connected when we enter the ranks of the illuminated men of intellect who have rejected the living God? We are connected to the liberals’ world, which is without faith, hope, and charity, and we are united to him whom the liberals serve – the proud angel of science, Lucifer.

When we reject the stupid and unscientific faith of the antique Europeans, we are back with the Athenians whom St. Paul confronted. They were men who “spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.” They considered themselves to be the illuminati, the intelligent ones, yet St. Paul calls them ignorant:

Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

The modern Europeans have decided in favor of the ignorant Athenians; they have proclaimed their intelligence by rejecting the stupidity of St. Paul. Surely such intelligence makes the angels weep and places a sword in the heart of our Lord. But what is that to the liberals, who do not believe in the divine humanity of Jesus Christ?

A common theme in ‘Christian’ circles is to emphasize the similarities between Christianity and the other faiths such as Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, etc. But those ‘faiths’ are non-faiths, based on a rejection of the living God. When ‘conservatives’ such as Peter Kreeft recommend that Christians unite with the Jews and Moslems against liberalism, they reveal their own non-faith. Liberalism is the synthesis of all the non-Christian faiths; what they have in common with liberalism, a hatred of the God who took human flesh, makes their devotees the kissing cousins of the liberals. They will never unite with a European Christian; it is only Christian apostates who can make common cause with the liberals and the heathen faiths. Of course they can only be called apostates from the standpoint of the antique Europeans. If they got it right, if the faith they held in their hearts was the true Gospel of Christ, then the modern Christians who seek to fuse Christ with science, democracy, Judaism, Islam, and negro worship are wrong.

St. Paul was and is the saint for all people, but he is most particularly the saint for the European people. He represents our people at their best, when they loved much and would not compromise on that which was essential – faith in Christ and Christ alone as our salvation. St. Paul was not a theologian, he was something far greater: he was a poet of the spirit. With a passion emanating from a heart on fire with the love of Christ, he preached before the Athenians, the Romans, and the Jews, that Jesus Christ was the Son of the living God. It was not St. Paul’s belief in God that made the Athenians laugh at him and the Romans and the Jews persecute him. All those pagans, even the Athenians, believed in some kind of God. It was Paul’s claim that Christ was the Son of God, which placed him at odds with the world. He found himself in the same position as Christ before the Sanhedrin, when Christ made it clear to Caiaphas that He was the Son of God. Was it madness that made Paul think he saw the risen Lord on the road to Damascus? Our people did not think so when they built a civilization based on St. Paul’s assertion that the folly of God was greater than the wisdom of men. And that really is the crux of the matter. Christ’s wisdom was not and is not the wisdom of this world. Faith in Him cannot be reconciled to any of the faiths – Judaism, Islam, or liberalism, which emanate from the natural world. Christ’s love passeth the understanding of any mind-forged system of men. But does His love passeth the understanding of the human heart? St. Paul enjoined us to search the Scriptures with our hearts because in that union, that of the Word made flesh with hearts of flesh, is the consummation devoutly to be wished, the consummation of Christ with His people.

The story of the European people is not finished. We now live in hell, but we can climb out of hell if we cease to fuse the gods of liberalism with Christ. That was the key to St. Paul’s strength of faith. He was not a fusionist. When I worked in academia, I took note of the fact that very, very few of the academicians attacked Christ directly. None, of course, believed He was the Son of God, but they left Him alone as a figure of hatred. Like Francis the blasphemer, they generally regarded Christ as a good guy. It was St. Paul who earned their wrath and their hatred. Paul did not say anything about Christ that Christ did not say of Himself, but somehow the liberal academics managed to dismiss Christ’s claim to be the Son of God as a later addition, an addition of St. Paul. Bless that unclubbable, unrelenting Apostle of Christ crucified, Christ risen! Our Apostle did not compromise with liberalism, and because he did not compromise, our people were able to know and love Christ. Why are we now too intelligent to believe in St. Paul’s vision of the risen Lord?

Four authors that I keep coming back to again and again for spiritual sustenance are William Shakespeare, Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, and Edmund Burke. I find in those authors the true Christian mysticism that St. Paul writes about in I Corinthians 13, “charity never faileth.” At the heart of our ancient civilization is that undefinable entity called charity. It was the belief of St. Paul that charity was the primary attribute of the God who took flesh and dwelt among us, and it was the belief of my people, the antique Europeans, that they were most like unto God when they practiced charity, not when they sought to rival God by out-thinking Him. The triumph of liberalism has resulted in the end of charity. Yes, we still have what are called ‘charitable institutions,’ but what the liberals call charity is not the charity that St. Paul spoke of. He spoke of Christ as the connection between human hearts and true charity. When our incarnate Lord is cast aside and what is inside the human heart is demonized, there can be no genuine charity. In fact, what is charitable becomes satanic. It is now ‘charitable’ to kill babies in the womb lest a young woman’s life becomes damaged due to an unwanted pregnancy. And it is now ‘charitable’ to stand by while the creatures of color from without and within the white nations murder, rape, and assault white people. Never mistake His reign of charity for their reign of Satan.

St. Augustine placed a wedge between Christ and his people when he declared that there was the city of God, which was the church of enlightened minds, and there was the city of man, which consisted of the barbarians from the fens and bogs of Europe. But is St. Augustine’s church the Church? Those ‘barbarous’ Europeans took Christ into their hearts and made Him the Alpha and Omega of their civilization. Throughout the Christian centuries of European history, the theologians have clung to the Augustinian view of the church. “The hearts of the faithful are sinful, but the minds of the theologians are pure. Isn’t that obvious?” No, it is not obvious to me. The theologians’ focus has been on the sins of the Europeans, which are no different than the sins of the pagans; therefore, the theologians tell us, we must look to them to escape the desolation of sin and destruction. But there is something different about the Christian Europeans which is quite obvious to those who see through, not with the eye. The Europeans had, when they were a Christian people, that which no other people before or since have possessed. They had the faith, hope, and above all, charity, that comes from touching the heart of God. You can’t acquire that faith, hope, and charity by thinking ‘correctly,’ in the mode of Aristotle and Plato. You can only come to that inner vision, that faith, by committing to the heart of God as St. Paul did and our people, the ancient Europeans, did. The theologians and the philosophers of the West, as Fitzhugh tells us, have been “so busy with the worst features of human nature (the Europeans’ human nature) that they have not even found a name for their better feature.” The managerial Christians of yesterday and today have taken it upon themselves to ‘fix’ the faithful. And when you set out to ‘fix’ people you focus on what is wrong with them. The problem with such a cold, scientific approach to human souls is that the Mr. and Mrs. Fixits often become like unto the scientist in Hawthorne’s short story “The Birthmark”:

In those days when the comparatively recent discovery of electricity and other kindred mysteries of Nature seemed to open paths into the region of miracle, it was not unusual for the love of science to rival the love of woman in its depth and absorbing energy. The higher intellect, the imagination, the spirit, and even the heart might all find their congenial aliment in pursuits which, as some of their ardent votaries believed, would ascend from one step of powerful intelligence to another, until the philosopher should lay his hand on the secret of creative force and perhaps make new worlds for himself. We know not whether Aylmer possessed the degree of faith in man’s ultimate control over Nature. He had devoted himself, however, too unreservedly to scientific studies ever to be weaned from them by any second passion. His love for his young wife might prove the stronger of the two; but it could only be by intertwining itself with his love of science, and uniting the strength of the latter to his own.

Of course we know how the story ends. Aylmer becomes obsessed with a birthmark upon his wife’s cheek, and in attempting to eradicate the birthmark he kills his wife. The antique Europeans have been placed in the position of Aylmer’s wife. They were not perfect Christians, therefore their civilization and the heirs of their civilization must be destroyed in order to produce perfect human beings fit to live in the liberals’ kingdom of heaven on hearth. The attack on whiteness will continue and intensify so long as liberals rule in the European nations, because that birthmark, the birthmark of whiteness, must be removed so that scientific mankind can progress.

I contend, against all the world if necessary, but hopefully in union with a few kindred souls, that the antique Europeans, when seen through the visionary eye, represented the ‘best feature’ of man. They were the people who saw the Word made flesh and believed in the Word made flesh. The liberals in church and state have declared war on those people and on every man, woman, and child who dares, even tangentially, to stay connected to the antique Europeans. But we will cleave to those people because our Lord dwells with them; He does not dwell in Aylmer’s laboratory of science. The greatest tragedy, the institutionalized tragedy of liberalism, is the rejection of His love in preference for the approval of Satan and his minions. +

The People without a Heart

Oh, learn to feel from what a stock thou’rt sprung;
Cast not, for tinsel trash and idle show,
The precious jewel of thy worth away.

-Schiller, William Tell

____________________________________

The conservatives of the post-World War II era, men such as Richard Weaver and Russell Kirk, have been completely dismissed by the modern conservatives, who are not conservative. They are liberals who differ with their liberal cousins on certain economic issues, but in the main they agree with their cousins on that which is essential, the supremacy of the material realm over the spiritual realm, thus proving the truth of Burke’s prophecy about the new age that was upon us: “But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators, has succeeded…”

It was and remains my contention that unless we, the European people, come to see that democracy is antithetical to Christ’s reign of charity, whether it comes to us in the French or American mode, we will never break free of the liberals’ kingdom of hell on earth. “He did not die but nothing of life remained,” will continue to be our destiny. The people of color can reject incarnate Europe and continue on their merry, pagan way, but the European people cannot go back to paganism without committing suicide. Their past, unlike the past of the people of color, is inextricably bound to incarnate Europe; if they seek to sever themselves from His Europe they will become the unmen, the people without souls. Like the Man in the Danish fairy tale, “The Man Without a Heart,” (1) the European people are now a mind and body without a heart. They live in a purely material realm of existence without the spiritual sustenance that once sustained them. They have given their hearts to the men of science and democracy. And the men of science and democracy have placed those European hearts in a science lab where they can be regulated and controlled by the superior minds of the liberals. The grazers are allowed access to their hearts when the liberal lab technicians call all the whites together to worship at the shrines of the colored heathens. Then, after the services, the Europeans’ hearts must be placed back in the science lab to prevent them from being aroused at the destruction of their people and the liberals’ attack on the living God who dwells in hearts of flesh.

The modern liberals, under the guidance of Satan, have accomplished what the Rousseaus and the Voltaires set out to do: They have convinced the European people that their salvation lies in a repudiation of their past. “If you embrace the future,” the liberals tell them, “You shall be as gods.” They will be purged of their whiteness and their souls, but that is no tragedy because sophisters, economists, and calculators have no need of a soul. Those creatures, the sophisters, economists, and calculators, must be providing the European people with something that I can’t see, because they have kept the European people in their power for the past century. I suppose – but I’m only guessing – that when a people have only known one reality, the reality of Satan’s hatred for humanity, particularly white humanity, they spend their lives trying to live and survive within that reality. That there could be a divine love at the heart of existence is now an alien concept to the European people. There is no personal love of God or man in the new Europe, there is only the impersonal love of cosmic nature, the type of love the psychiatrists call the “oceanic feeling,” that makes a man or woman feel at one with the natural world. Speaking only for myself, I must say that I have no love for nature or the cosmos — I don’t want to be one with cosmic nature — because that type of nature, dress it up how you will, is nothing but an impersonal dung heap.

The Kirk and Weaver conservatives missed that which was and is essential. Both men supported the idea of God and the idea of a godly people, but because of a philosophical avoidance of the human heart, they failed to name the particular God and the particular people necessary to sustain European civilization. Jesus Christ was and is the Word-made-flesh, He is not some vague, shadowy figure contained within the framework of something called our ‘Greco-Roman-Judeo Christian tradition.’ He is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end of our existence. That is what our people believed, the people who took Him into their hearts and their civilization. When He is the unchallenged King of your civilization, it is possible to simply reference your “religious tradition” without undermining your civilization. But when Christ has been dethroned by the Utopian heralds of a new civilization based on the custom and manners of Satan, you cannot simply make reference to “our heritage,” because “our heritage” has become our democratic heritage, bequeathed to us by the Voltaires and the Rousseaus. In order to exorcise the democratic demons from our society, we need to call upon our Jesus, not our ‘Greco-Roman-Judeo Christian tradition.’ If we don’t call on Him by name, the demons will declare, “Jesus we know, but we do not know the Greco-Roman-Judeo Christian tradition.” And because they do not know or fear that abstract entity, they will stay within the body of European civilization and continue to work their will upon the European people.

Richard Weaver concluded his masterwork, Ideas Have Consequences, with a recommendation that we take our stand on the metaphysical right of private property, which was one of the few metaphysical rights left us as a holdover from old Europe. That won’t do. The right of private property became a metaphysical right because the people who made it a metaphysical right believed that Jesus Christ was the Son of God. You can’t hold onto that right, or any other right stemming from old Europe, while holding the central issue in abeyance: Did Christ rise from the dead on the third day?

We must consider the great difference between the pagan Greco-Roman culture and the Christian European culture. If we consider rightly we will not blend the two cultures, as the intellectual conservatives do, and we will not equate Western civilization with the pagan Greeks, as men such as Victor Davis Hanson do. The pagans did not reject the living God; they never knew Him. The modern Europeans have rejected the living God, and they have built a culture based on that rejection. Think on the enormity of that crime! How can we have anything to do with liberals — how can we dialogue with them or engage in polite debate with them — when they preside over a civilization grounded in the hatred of the Light of the world?

I had a sociology professor in college who kept ranting about white people who hated change and sought to go through life safe and secure in their “white bubble.” The liberals, for all their self-proclaimed originality, are all cut from the same cloth. I have heard the “white bubble” attack ad nauseum in the last forty years, and the ‘given’ in the attack is that the whites’ culture as it once existed was evil, and to resist the destruction of European civilization is to perpetuate evil and defy the good. Instead of defending their past and stating their determination to go into the future holding onto the threads of the past, the European grazers have responded to the attack on their past by agreeing to repudiate their past. And in return for their betrayal of old Europe, the grazers hope they will be allowed to continue to graze in the fields of Liberaldom, even though the grass is becoming scarcer and scarcer and is starting to taste like dirt.

The first and primary reason why we cannot repudiate our white civilization, what the liberals call our “white bubble,” is because He resides there with the people who had hearts of flesh. He does not live in modern Europe, the Europe conceived in regicide and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal as part of nature’s dung heap. But within that dung heap, by a leap of faith, we must believe that the colored races are more equal; they are the lords of the dung heap. Is this the promised end? Do we really think that the utopia of the dung heap is superior to His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven?

The second reason we cannot repudiate our past for a place in the liberals’ dung heap is that the liberals are liars — they will not give white people a place in their world even if they agree to leave their “white bubble.” Witness the case of Donald Trump. Has there ever been a President more vilified by the liberals than Donald Trump? No. He is hated more than Richard Nixon, who previously wore the ‘most hated’ mantle. Why the intense hatred? Is Trump unwilling to leave the “white bubble”? No, he is not. He has repeatedly, by word and deed, shown his Americanism, making ‘diversity’ one of the central tenets of his presidency. But – and herein lies the rub – Trump wants to make white people part of the liberals’ brave new utopian ‘paradise.’ And that is heresy. Whites must be destroyed, the “white bubble” must cease to exist. If you are against that religious tenet, the primary religious tenet of the liberals, you will be tied to the rock upon which Prometheus was tied, while liberal vultures peck at your liver.

An objective observer from Mars would think that a religious state dedicated to the supremacy of Satan and the eradication of European Christians would be opposed by the organized churches who profess to believe in Jesus Christ. That has not been the case. The organized Christian churches have either openly attacked Christian Europeans, which is the case with Pope Francis the blasphemer, or they have attempted to blend Christianity with Judaism in order to make it more compatible with the ethos of ‘this world only,’ which is the case with the largest branches of organized Protestant Jewry. Trump’s conversion was quite sincere, and it is natural that a man seeking water in a desert should take water from the only well he finds, but Judeo-Christianity is not the European Christianity of our European progenitors. The fusionism of Francis the blasphemer is more inclusive than the fusionism of the Judeo-Christians and the Greco-Roman-Judeo conservatives, which is why Francis the blasphemer and his cohorts have become more acceptable to the liberals than the other Christian fusionists. However, I wonder if ultimately even they, the Roman Catholic fusionists, will prove themselves to be too European for the liberals. Be that as it may, their fate is but a trifle here. What counts is the non-fusionist Europeans, the remnant band. It is hard to believe that Christ wants us to trust in Him and Him alone against all the forces of hell, but that is exactly what He does want. In life and death we have only our faith in His word to sustain us against the terror by night, the pestilence that walketh in darkness, and the destruction that wasteth at noonday. Look at all the well-planned programs of the 20th century conservatives that were designed to defeat the liberals and make the 21st century the conservatives’ century. They have all failed. The managerial conservatives of the 20th century helped to usher in the century of Satan. (2) It is Satan and his minions that now rule Europe. Why don’t we pick up the discarded sword of our non-fusionist ancestors and attack the liberals, armed only with that discarded sword? The European who forsakes all other helps save His help is the only force on earth that can defeat the liberals and their master. “When our grace we have forgot…” Do we believe that charity never faileth? If so, let us proceed to attack the liberals in His name, for charity’s sake. +

(1) When at home, this wise man was, as a rule, occupied with boiling, melting, and mixing the most remarkable things. One day he placed a small pot on a quaint-looking little oven, and was in the act of carrying out a very important experiment. The pot contained, namely: three drops of rat’s blood; forty drops of the juice of henbane and chelidonia; the finger of a thief, who had been hanged on the gallows; four slugs; the heart of a frog, and a bit of his own finger-nail. As soon as this began to boil, the wise man poured three drops of a green fluid into the pot. Instantly a white steam arose, spread itself above the stove, and assumed the shape of a ghost’s figure, surmounted by a large head with a pale, colorless countenance, large, round eyes, and a broad mouth.

The old sage was struck with astonishment, and wondered if this figure might, indeed, be Fortune itself.

“What do you wish for?” asked the figure, with its broad mouth.

“What do I wish for?” repeated the student. “Perfect happiness. Fortune herself is my desire.”

“Explain what you mean by Fortune,” pursued the spirit.

“Fortune,” began the other, “is a power of nature, and—“

“Be quick!” cried the ghost. “Do you wish for money?”

“No, no,” answered the wise man; “the greatest happiness is to have no heart. I wish that you would take mine from me.”

“Shall I take your heart?” asked the spirit again.

“Yes, take it, and hide it so well that it will never be found.”

Danish Fairy & Folk Tales

(2) It was striking to me when I would read the intellectual conservatives that although they professed to be very traditional, they were proceeding under very nontraditional premises; paramount among those premises was that a man did not need his own personal kith and kin so long as he could hold onto an idea of a universal kith and kin. That did not, from my perspective, seem to be the way God had ordered our lives. But then that is the way with great planners and great thinkers: they always assume they are smarter than God.

The Acorn and the Pumpkin

God’s works are good. To prove this truth
I need not search the world, forsooth!
I do it by the nearest Pumpkin!
“Fie! Fruit so large on vine so small!”
Exclaimed one day a wise young bumpkin! ”What could He mean who made us all?
This Pumpkin here is out of place.
If I had ordered in this case,
Upon that oak it should have hung–
A noble fruit as ever swung
To grace a tree so firm and strong.
Indeed there’s been a great mistake!
Had my opinion but been sought,
When God set out the world to make,
All things had then been as they ought!
All things had then in order come!
This Acorn for example,
No bigger than my thumb,
Had not disgraced a tree so ample.
The more I think, the more I wonder!
The Pumpkin on the oak should grow,
The Acorn on the vine below;
God surely made an awful blunder!”
With such reflections proudly fraught,
Our Sage grew tired of mighty thought,
And threw himself on Nature’s lap,
Beneath an oak, to take a nap.
It chanced that during his repose,
An Acorn fell plump on his nose!
He wakened with a mighty start;
He shrieked and seized the injured part!
“Oh! Oh! alas! I bleed! I bleed!
This acorn ‘twas that did the deed!
I see that God had reasons good,
And all His works were understood,
For truly, what had been my woes,
Had, then, a Pumpkin whacked my nose!”
Thus home he went in humbler mood!

-La Fontaine

The Fruits of Compromise

There is a courageous wisdom: there is also a false reptile prudence, the result not of caution but of fear. Under misfortunes it often happens that the nerves of the understanding are so relaxed, the pressing peril of the hour so completely confounds all the faculties, that no future danger can be properly provided for, can be justly estimated, can be so much as fully seen. The eye of the mind is dazzled and vanquished. An abject distrust of ourselves, an extravagant admiration of the enemy, present us with no hope but in a compromise with his pride, by a submission to his will. This short plan of policy is the only counsel which will obtain a hearing. We plunge into a dark gulph with all the rash precipitation of fear. The nature of courage is, without a question, to be conversant with danger; but in the palpable night of their terrors, men under consternation suppose, not that it is the danger, which, by a sure instinct, calls out the courage to resist it, but that it is the courage which produces the danger. They therefore seek for a refuge from their fears in the fears themselves, and consider a temporizing meanness as the only source of safety.

–Burke, Letters on a Regicide Peace

______________

‘Tis still a dream, or else such stuff as madmen
Tongue and brain not; either both or nothing;
Or senseless speaking, or a speaking such
As sense cannot untie. Be what it is,
The action of my life is like it, which
I’ll keep, if but for sympathy.

–Shakespeare, Cymbeline

______________________________________________________________

Let me continue last week’s thread: “All political revolutions are preceded by a moral revolution in the hearts of the people.” Burke, and then his spiritual counterpart, Dostoyevsky, faced the brave new world of the liberals and saw the “principle of evil himself” that was and is the font of liberalism. We must fully grasp that depressing fact, but none the less true, even if it is depressing, before we can respond to liberalism as Christian Europeans should respond. “Stop! This must not go on!,” Nicholas Nickleby commanded as he stepped forward and began to beat Wackford Squeers with the same cane Squeers had been beating the defenseless and crippled Smike with. I do not see, in the European people, the same righteous indignation about the evil liberals do that Nicholas Nickleby showed toward Wackford Squeers. And Wackford Squeers was a gentleman compared to the liberals; he lacked the “cold malignity” of the liberals; he could not quite descend to their level of evil.

Of course Nicholas Nickleby is a fictional character, so we can discount him and continue to capitulate to liberalism. But can we? Let us pause a moment. Nicholas Nickleby’s response to evil cannot be dismissed as a mere storybook response to evil. Dickens was describing a spiritual reality. The European people, when they were a people, believed that heroes should respond to evil with the same charity of honor that Nicholas Nickleby demonstrated when he beat Wackford Squeers. Only a few heroes lived up to that creed, but the fact that a hero in old Europe was expected to fight the devil and his minions rather than debate and dialog with them indicates why old Europe, with all her imperfections, gave us a glimpse of His kingdom come while the new, improved liberal Europe gives us a foretaste of hell.

What we now find acceptable, even laudatory, has been made acceptable and laudatory by the revolution that took place in the hearts of the European people. Negro worship, legalized abortion, gay rights, feminism, and Islamic terrorism are just some of the horrors that our ancestors would have responded to with the command, “Stop! This must not go on.” And then they would have acted on that command. The first outward manifestation of the liberals’ moral revolution, or should we say their immoral revolution, was the French Revolution. Pure evil emerged, spewing forth from the hearts of academics – lawyers, philosophers, and theologians – and the French people did not oppose that evil.

[L]ittle did I dream that I should have lived to see such disasters fallen upon her in a nation of gallant men, in a nation of men of honour, and of cavaliers. I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards to avenge even a look that threatened her with insult. But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators, has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is extinguished for ever. Never, never more, shall we behold that generous loyalty to rank and sex, that proud submission, that dignified obedience, that subordination of the heart, which kept alive, even in servitude itself, the spirit of an exalted freedom. The unbought grace of life, the cheap defence of nations, the nurse of manly sentiment and heroic enterprise, is gone! It is gone, that sensibility of principle, that chartity of honour, which felt a stain like a wound, which inspired courage whilst it mitigated ferocity, which ennobled whatever it touched, and under which vice itself lost half its evil, by losing all its grossness.

–Burke, Reflections on the Revolution in France

Is it possible to preserve the “unbought grace of life” while enjoying the fruits of a satanic revolt against God? “Yes, it is,” the incremental Jacobins of Europe proclaimed. “If you reject the extremism of Robespierre, if you grant tax-exempt status to the churches that support the liberal state, if you do everything that Robespierre did, but do it gradually and democratically, you can have the ‘freedoms’ and ‘pleasures’ Satan can give, and you can have God as well.” But such a compromise is a mirage, a trick of the devil. Where your treasure lies so lies your heart. You cannot treasure the things of Satan and still retain God in your heart. That is where intellectual Christianity comes to the fore. The immoral revolution in the hearts of the European people could not have taken place if the theologians – Roman Catholic and Protestant – had not damned the human heart as impure and unchristian. If we can only approach God through the intellects of enlightened clergymen we are ultimately left to the mercy of the evil one who has no mercy, because metaphysical speculation, detached from the human heart, is Satanism. The reason our modern clergy have joined the liberals in their condemnation of the antique Europeans is because they do not think a heart of flesh is the bedrock of faith. They are pagan philosophers who are uncomfortable with the illogic of the God who took on human flesh. Thus, our past, our Christian past, has been eradicated by the liberals and the anti-European, and therefore anti-Christian, churchmen.

If the European people were one with their progenitors, they would not be the confused, cowardly creatures they now are. They are confused because they think they can actually be part of Liberaldom if they voice their disagreement with certain aspects of liberalism in polite terms. And as the mad-dog liberals become crueler, divesting themselves of all humanity, the grazers and the ‘conservatives’ become more polite and self-effacing. But I ask you, was Robespierre gentle to the people who were civil to him? Did civility and politeness make Stalin feel warm and gushy so that he stopped killing millions? Civility should be the byword when Christians meet to discuss how best to advance His reign of charity, it should not be the byword — in fact it should have no place at all — when we confront liberals whose stated goal is the elimination of all things white and Christian.

Civility in the face of liberalism is a cowardly betrayal of Christ. Only men who are taking the hallucinogenic drug called democracy can think that liberals will stop their murderous campaign against the white race if we, the whites, will only be civil to them. Are they civil when they slaughter the innocents? Are they civil when they invite Moslems into the white nations to rape and murder whites? Are they civil to any white politician, such as Trump, who tries to include white people in the liberals’ ‘diverse’ world? Civility, kindness, mercy, and above all charity, stemmed from Christian Europe. How can you expect liberals who have made the hatred of Christian Europe their reason for being, to be civil, kind, merciful, or charitable? You can’t, unless you have become so spiritually anesthetized that you no longer are able to distinguish good from evil. We are back with Peter on the night they took Christ away to be crucified. “Do you know that man?” And of course Peter, with an instinct for self-preservation, denied our Lord thrice. But there is one instinct stronger than the instinct for self-preservation, an instinct that the liberals and the theologians do not believe in: the instinct to return the love bestowed upon us by the living God. Peter, after his denial of Christ, died on the cross because his loyalty to the font of love was greater than his fear of the liberals. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, but the love of God is the ultimate end of wisdom. We arrive at that consummation through the human heart. Do our minds tell us to deny His Europe and embrace Jacobin Europe? If that is the case, then we have no heart, because we have denied the living God who comes to us through the human heart.

It has been the self-appointed task of the ‘Christian’ theologians to destroy the wellsprings emanating from the hearts of the faithful so they can remain on the straight and narrow, undeterred and uninfluenced by the dangerous passions emanating from the human heart. Life is not that simple. You can’t destroy the human in order to get to the divine. You must go through the labyrinth of the human heart, with all its pitfalls and temptations, in order to reach the God with the divinely human heart. Without Christ as the moral exemplar within our hearts, we are left with only our feeble minds as our moral exemplars. Which leaves us at the mercy of Satan and his minions.

I referenced Burke at the beginning of this post because what he described as the compromising spirit of his fellow Europeans toward the Jacobins – “an extravagant admiration of the enemy, present us with no hope but in a compromise with his pride, by a submission to his will” – is what has been taking place within the ranks of ‘conservatives.’ The crackdown on all websites to the right of Hillary Clinton has made the ‘conservatives’ try to be more civil and more submissive to the liberals. But such a policy is not only immoral, it is also impractical. The liberals are possessed by the devil, they are determined to go over the cliff with the swine. They will not have anything to do with anyone remotely connected to Jesus Christ. And white Europeans were once intimately connected with Jesus Christ; therefore, white people must be eliminated. You might think you will save yourself by denouncing your past, your people who loved much, but you will then be part and parcel of Liberaldom. You too will go over the cliff with the swine. We lose everything if we seek to make peace with the liberals; we lose the battle in this world, and we lose the ultimate battle, to obtain a place in His house of many mansions.

R. L. Stevenson observed that, “a man could not vary from his faith, unless he could eradicate all memory of the past.” That has happened to the European people. The liberals demonized the antique Europeans by calling white pietas ‘racism’ and the Christian patriarchal family ‘sexism.’ The churchmen went along with the liberals, jettisoning the actual flesh and blood Europeans for a new, abstract, nondescript, universalist type of Christian without the racist and sexist tendencies of the older European Christians. But such ‘perfect’ Christians are not Christians. They are liberals. They do not worship the God who enters human hearts, they worship the archangel Satan who enters human minds in order to tell the unfaithful that, “You shall be as gods.”

Robespierre discovered that his revolution based on pure reason could not sustain itself. The people needed something for their hearts. So Robespierre went from the execution of all those who were not atheists to the execution of all those who were atheists. But his state religion was not the Christian religion, it was paganism revisited. He failed because he moved too quickly and too harshly, but his method, the blending of Christianity in many of its outward forms with the spiritual substance of paganism, was accepted, over time, by the French people and the rest of the European people. The romance of liberalism, which consists of the European people’s love affair with reason, science, and the noble savage, has replaced, in the hearts of the European people, the romance of Christ crucified, Christ Risen. Why has that romance triumphed over the Christ-centered romance of old Europe? Why did Judas, who seemingly saw the same Christ as the other apostles, decide to betray Christ? Obviously there was something he failed to see. Why did Burke see “pure, unmixed, dephlegmated, defecated evil” in the Jacobin regicides, while Price, Fox, and Priestley, his contemporaries, and later men such as Belloc and Sarkozy, see the triumph of good over evil in the victory of the cannibalistic regicides over the Christian monarch of France? Who are we compromising with when we try to please the liberals? Why doesn’t the romance of His Europe inspire us to rise and ride? I do not understand the modern Europeans nor do I want to. Blessed are they that lived, loved, and mourned under the shadow of the cross, which once enveloped all of Europe. They are my people, which I’ll keep close to my heart, for sympathy’s sake. +

The Liberals’ Orphanage of Horror

Nothing can be conceived more hard than the heart of a thoroughbred metaphysician. It comes nearer to the cold malignity of a wicked spirit than to the frailty and passion of a man. It is like that of the principle of evil himself, incorporeal, pure, unmixed, dephlegmated, defecated evil. – Edmund Burke

Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him. – Matthew 26: 3-4

________________________________________

I have not seen a news story from the official establishment media for over three years. There is no need to reference such ‘news’ sources because they are simply propaganda outlets for liberalism. The alternative news sites such as Breitbart and the Conservative Coalition provide you with much more accurate information than the propaganda ‘news’ of the liberals. However, even though the alternative news sites are more accurate than the mainstream ones, there is a great danger involved if we do more than dip our toes into the world of news, even if that news is gleaned from the alternative sites. Because, whether the news comes from the formal propaganda agencies of the liberal establishment or the alternative news sites, we are still swimming, or at least attempting to swim, in the moral quicksand of liberalism. We are trying to find a spiritual homeland amongst a people, the liberals, who despise the spiritual homeland of the European people. Why did “Dixie” become the national anthem of the Southern people? It became their anthem because the song spoke to their hearts, invoking the sacred image of a spiritual homeland that they could love and defend against the invader. “I’ll take my stand to live and die in Dixie.” All political revolutions are preceded by a moral revolution in the hearts of the people. We live under a political oligarchy opposed to all things white and Christian because the European people have given up their spiritual homeland, incarnate Europe, in return for the right to live in Liberaldom. We are now spiritual orphans, dependent on the mercies of the liberal overseers of the orphanage for our every need. Have they tended to our needs? No, they have not given us anything close to what was provided for us in incarnate Europe; they have left us bereft of everything that makes life bearable – the love of kith and kin and the love of a personal Savior greater than reason, science, and the noble savage.

The mere reportage of the atrocities that have come about under the liberals’ regime of reason, science, and the noble savage does not really offer the white Everyman any hope. He must have a spiritual homeland in which he can take his stand against the liberals. In the absence of such a homeland he must make himself content in the liberals’ orphanage. Which means he must anesthetize himself against his past. He must learn to hate all things white and Christian lest he be cast out of the liberal orphanage, the only home he has. It is not a real home, it is not of the spirit, but it is the only home the liberals will permit him.

In order to make the orphanage acceptable to whites as a place where they are made ready for the slaughterhouse, it was necessary to trivialize white civilization. Deep-rooted family and racial ties were replaced by a commitment to sport teams, and faith in the God-Man was replaced by the worship of the sacred negro and the cosmic force. Can such trivialities sustain a people who once believed in the God of Handel and Rembrandt? On the surface it seems like such trivialities can sustain the European people. They don’t seem to need a spiritual homeland. But what is going on below the surface? The increased suicide rate among young white males, the increase in drug use, the increased addiction to sexual perversions all indicate that life in the liberals’ orphanage is not what the liberals purport it to be.

Still, white people cling to their tenuous place in the liberals’ orphanage. And they cling to their place in the liberals’ orphanage with their whole heart, mind, and soul precisely because their place in the orphanage is so tenuous. The atrocity stories about the torture murders of whites by blacks, the mass rapes and murders of whites by Moslems, do not make the white grazers want to fight the liberals and their colored minions, it makes them divorce themselves from ‘other’ whites, the ‘bad’ whites who have brought ruin upon themselves by being too overtly white. “The good whites, like us, will be accepted in Liberaldom,” is the belief of the white grazers. And as they go to the execution block they will still be hoping against hope that their benevolent liberal rulers will discover they are the good whites who do not deserve to be killed. They will never grasp the fact, because they have given their souls to Liberaldom, that all whites are evil by virtue of the fact that they are white. This is not an abstract principle to me, it is a horrific reality. My father, for instance, was a white grazer, a World War II veteran, who believed in racial diversity and the American flag. During his final illness he suffered through the living hell of a hospital committed to racial diversity, which translates to the torture of white patients through neglect in favor of the treatment of black and brown patients. Grazers never stop believing — like a mistreated dog they keep looking to their masters, the liberal overlords, fully confident they will be treated with compassion and kindness. But compassion and kindness are relics of another world, a world we have left behind for the great modern world of Liberaldom. Let us all hold hands and join in a psalm of praise to that brave new world of diversity, cruelty, and spiritual desolation.

The ‘get the information to the people’ alternative news sites are closing the proverbial barn door after the horses have already escaped. You must have rulers and a people with the heart to address and correct wrongs in order to get anywhere with your atrocity stories. In the Western world the rulers have created a culture in which whites are offered up for sacrifice. And they have created a culture of non-resistance to liberalism amongst the people who are being made ready for sacrifice. It will take something much more potent than alternative news sites and elections to combat the liberals’ culture of white genocide.

What is that something more potent than alternative news sites and elections? Oft this stage I have repeatedly said what that something is, much to the disgust of the enemies of Christian Europe. But it is the antique Europeans who felt connected to their people and their God, in spirit and blood, who carved out a spiritual home for the European people in the midst of heathendom. The anti-Christian enemies of the antique Europeans started out as isolated figures in the halls of academia and organized Christian Jewry, until, in the American and French Revolutions, they managed to institutionalize their mind-forged religion of hated. The rest of the European nations have followed in the footsteps of the American and French Jacobins.

The liberals institutionalize evil by damming up the channels of grace. They criminalize pietas, the love of our kith and kin, so that we cannot form an alliance with the God of mercy and love who comes to us through those ties. The better way, better than philosophy and the speaking in tongues, which St. Paul told us about, was charity. If that charity is proscribed, that charity which can only be known and then practiced by those people who have a spiritual homeland, then what becomes of the European people? They are left bereft of a homeland, they are dependent on the liberals’ state-operated orphanage.

The European culture of Christ crucified, Christ risen, is now so remote to the European people that any serious presentation of that culture as an alternative to the modern liberal orphanages is met with scorn, ridicule, disbelief, and in some cases fierce persecution. One thinks of Acts 5: 40:

And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.

When the liberals command us not to reference the ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’ faith of the antique Europeans, haven’t we been commanded not to speak in the name of Jesus? Yes, we have been so commanded. But we shall not cease to speak of those people and their God, who is our Jesus as well as theirs.

The liberals, having forsaken the living God, have become as hard-hearted as Satan; they cannot be moved by charitable pleas to stop white genocide. Nor can the grazers be compelled to abandon their liberal orphanage. They fear the unknown world outside the orphanage walls too much. So what must be done? It appears that nothing can be done. But in this world, this liberal world of institutionalized blasphemy and cruelty, there is a narrow mountain pass in the hinterlands of Europe. That pass is guarded by griffins, dragons, and evil trolls. If a European, a third dumb brother, is willing to approach that mountain pass armed only with the charity of honor which was the distinguishing characteristic of the heroes of old Europe, he will discover that the griffins, dragons, and trolls are no match for a European knight of charity. They will fall before him. And he will then make his way through the mountain pass and destroy the dam holding back the water of pietas from flowing into the European valley. When that river once again nourishes the blighted European valleys, the liberal trolls and wizards will flee and the European people will come back to life again.

I refer to the European fairy tale of the third dumb brother, because that tale, which occurs again and again in the folklore of our people, tells us what our people learned about existence. They saw that at the heart of this world of pain and sorrow was a Heart that had overcome this world of pain and sorrow. “If the world hate thee, know that I have overcome the world.” We need to see the visions and dream the dreams of our people when they had faith. If we remain in the liberals’ orphanage where there are no visions of the Christ of old Europe and no dreams of the love which passeth all understanding, we will continue to be the ‘death in life’ people, the people without souls.

All heresies, Protestant and Catholic, stem from clergymen who seek to make the Christ of the Gospels into Caiaphas, a religious leader who set himself up in opposition to the living God of mercy and love in order to champion his own narrow, mind-forged religion of cruelty. The ideologues of liberalism, be they the American sons of liberty, French Jacobins, Russian communists, or modern liberals have made, and in the case of our modern liberals, are still making, the religion of Caiaphas their religion. Then and now the main feature of the religion of Caiaphas is the hatred of the living God. This is why the liberals must always be about the business of destroying the spiritual homeland of white people. The Europeans must never have a place from which they can take their stand, because that place, that Europe, is His Europe. But we will take our stand – Alexander Smollet is our exemplar. Wherever a European Christian lives according to His lights and defies Satan and his minions, there, on that spot of ground, is Christian Europe, our homeland.

“Now you’ll hear me. If you’ll come up one by one, unarmed, I’ll engage to clap you all in irons, and take you home to a fair trial in England. If you won’t my name is Alexander Smollett, I’ve flown my sovereign’s colours, and I’ll see you all to Davy Jones.”

We will not plead for a place in the liberals’ orphanage of horror. We will insist on an end to liberalism. There is no other alternative for the white European. The Trump and Brexit ‘victories’ are perfect examples of the futility of trying to work within the framework of the liberal orphanage in order to obtain rights for white people. The white European will never be given a place to live and work within the liberal orphanage. Let us leave that charnel house, that orphanage, and return to our spiritual homeland, which was and is, Incarnate Europe. +

Sacred Tears

Let the tears which fell, and the broken words which were exchanged in the long close embrace between the orphans, be sacred. A father, sister, and mother, were gained, and lost, in that one moment. Joy and grief were mingled in the cup; but there were no bitter tears: for even grief itself arose so softened, and clothed in such sweet and tender recollections, that it became a solemn pleasure, and lost all character of pain.


Time flies even when you’re not having fun. While talking with an acquaintance who has kept up his subscription to National Review for the last fifty years, I realized that I had not seen an issue of the magazine in the last thirty years. In my twenties I subscribed to the magazine and also went to the library and read all the back issues dating back to the magazine’s beginnings. The book review section of National Review gave the reader the chance, if he took the trouble to obtain the authors’ works, to catch up on the history of the conservative movement in the 20th century.

I bring this up because my acquaintance — actually he is somewhat more than an acquaintance and less than a friend – was lamenting the fact that National Review has become a liberal magazine. I commiserated with him and left it at that. But I do not think that National Review has become a liberal magazine: I think National Review always was a liberal magazine. Their liberalism was rooted in their rejection of Burkean conservatism. A case in point: I cancelled my subscription to the magazine when the editors published an article titled, “Abortion: A Spirited Debate.” In the article ‘conservatives’ on both sides of the abortion issue expressed their opinions. I don’t recall all the authors, but I do recall that the prominent conservative, Ernest van den Haag, was pro-abortion. I sent off a cancellation notice to National Review in which I told them that the sanctity of the child in the womb was not a debatable issue and that any person or magazine that treated it as a debatable issue was not conservative. The editors replied that I was a hopeless reactionary and that I would find life awfully lonely without National Review. Well, I did find life awfully lonely, but I would have felt my loneliness all the more acutely had I continued to pretend I was in sympathy with the National Review conservatives.

What conservatives in the 20th century lacked was what Christian theology lacks: A commitment to a personal savior above the intellectual theories about God and a commitment to the preservation of a particular people who took that very particular and personal savior into their hearts. Governments, Burke asserted, were not as important as customs and manners. In fact, governments only existed to protect the immemorial customs and manners of the European people. And those customs and manners were rooted in the European people’s faith in the God-Man, Jesus Christ. Any government, be it a monarchy or a republic, that failed to preserve the Christian customs and manners of the European people was not a legitimate government. The Southern conservative George Fitzhugh echoed Burke’s sentiments:

All government proceeds ab extra. Neither individuals nor societies can govern themselves, any more than the mouse can live in the exhausted receiver, or the clown lift himself by the lapel of his pantaloons. The South is governed by a healthy conservative public opinion. Had the negroes votes, the necessity would be removed, because the interest of the government class would cease to be conservative.

James Burnham, who started out his career as a Trotskyite and then became an ardent anti-communist, was typical of the 20th century conservatives. He wrote many books such as The Struggle for the World and The Suicide of the West, which were considered conservative masterpieces. But the fatal flaw of Burnham’s anti-communism was that his anti-communism was rooted in pragmatism — it was ‘this world only.’ And because it was ‘this world only,’ Burnham failed to see that there was no spiritual difference between the American democratic experiment and the Russian communist experiment. The former was incremental Jacobinism and the latter was the ‘Jacobinism now’ of the Robespierre Jacobins. The incremental Jacobinism of the American experiment in democracy has been more long-lasting than the Russian experiment, but that won’t necessarily stop the triumphant incremental Jacobins of the United States and Western Europe from becoming Robespierre Jacobins. The New Age liberals lack the caution and the patience for incremental Jacobinism. But perhaps caution and patience are no longer necessary considering the spiritually anesthetized state of the European people. The democratic zeitgeist, be it Russian communism or Western democracy, can only be resisted by a spiritual force greater than the zeitgeist of modernity. There is no such force in modern Europe.

What would it take to defeat the purveyors of modernity? It would take a people who believe that Christ rose from the dead on the third day. Such a people, when united to such a God, would have the spiritual force to resist the zeitgeist of modernity. In the absence of that spirit, all Burnham’s managerial programs and the countless other programs and political pamphlets of the 20th century conservatives amount to nothing. If you diagram and codify nothingness it still remains nothingness, it does not become a spiritual force.

The managerial conservatives, such as Burnham and Tyndall, ignored that which is essential for true conservatism, faith in something or someone beyond this world, and proceeded to unveil their plans to defeat the communist enemy from without and the liberal enemy from within while standing in the quicksand of democracy. The intellectual Christians, such as Weaver and Kirk, attempted to fuse the Western philosophical tradition with Christianity and democracy. That fusion eliminated the human element, the European people, which were and are necessary to defend the faith that made Europe Christendom.

The modern liberals tell us, “We will bring you hell.” Is there anything in 20th century or 21st century conservatism that can counter such creatures? No, there is not. Thomas Aird says it all in his poem, “The Devil’s Dream on Mount Aksbeck”: “The dreamer knew the work he marred, and felt a Fiend’s delight.” The devil hates Christ and His people with a passion that cannot be understood or resisted by reason alone. We must be joined to Him, who loves much, in order to understand the love that is beyond reason, which is the only force in heaven and earth that can overcome the passionate hatred of the devil and his minions.

In Shakespeare’s King Lear, the exiled Lear brought himself and his kingdom to utter ruin because of his failure to distinguish good from evil – he cast out his good daughter and placed his confidence in his two evil daughters. This is what the 20th century conservatives did and what the 21st century conservatives are still doing. They have cast out the good – the antique Europeans — and they have kept what is evil – the purveyors of democracy and racial diversity. But Lear, once he has lost his kingdom and seen the fruits of his daughters’ evil, repents of the evil he countenanced through his moral blindness. I see no such repentance in the modern conservatives. They still look to democracy as their savior.

Sometimes we are told to look to democratic Hungary and sometimes we are told to look to democratic Russia, where the democratic virus seems to be less virulent. But we will always believe a lie if we look to democracies for our salvation, even if those democracies are professed Christian democracies. Throughout Latin America and Europe, the most manically anti-white and anti-Christian parties are the Christian democratic parties. The Voltaires and the Rousseaus will always “mock on,” but should we become their lackeys by continually supporting liberal regimes that have institutionalized everything that is anti-Christian and anti-European just because those regimes are democratic? What is good cannot be synonymous with what is democratic. When that satanic premise rules, every evil under the sun is countenanced – legalized abortion, gay rights, feminism, and white genocide – because those evils have been democratically legalized. There must be a moral center in our souls that passes judgement on democracy. If there isn’t, if democracy is at the center of our souls, we will never oppose the devil, we will be at his mercy. And the devil has no mercy.

The Southern people did not lose the Civil War in 1864. They maintained their civilization after 1864 because they refused to accept the verdict of democracy, they refused to accept the fact that their whiteness and their Christian faith made them moral pariahs simply because a democratically elected government decided they were moral pariahs. The Southern people lost the war when they accepted a place in the liberal government in 1877, because what was implicit in their re-entry was an agreement to abide by the incremental Jacobinism of the liberal leviathan. Men such as Andrew Lytle and Donald Davidson remained spiritually unreconstructed, but the Southern people, as a people, became like unto the men and women of the North, they became grazers in the liberal fields of white oblivion. They lost their souls because they allowed the democratic process and all its attendant evils to become the moral center of their souls.

The pro-life movement, which started out as a movement to make abortion illegal, became a movement to ensure that abortion remained legal in perpetuity, because the people involved in the pro-life movement placed the democratic process at the center of their souls and left the unborn babies at the periphery of their souls, where they hovered around in a sort of limbo. The pro-life credo was not, “We will not abide the slaughter of the innocents.” Instead the credo was, “We will protest the slaughter of innocents within the confines of the democratic process, but we will not protest the slaughter of the innocents outside the democratic process.” To whom are you loyal when you have chosen the democratic process as your moral touchstone? Is it Christ, or is it the devil?

Writing in 1950 the great English historian Herbert Butterfield commented that as the belief in original sin died out so did the give and take, the compromise necessary in democratic politics, die out. If you believe that you as well as your political opponent are tainted with original sin, then there will be some humility. You might believe your opponent errs, but you will not believe he is beyond the ken of humanity. But when the Christian belief in original sin disappears, the liberal concept of original sin comes to the forefront. Sin is no longer endemic to the entire human race, it is now endemic to one race and one sex – the white male. Democracy writ large as in Jacobin France and the United States of America should never be acceptable to the European conservative, but even the smaller democratic structures, the village and county democracies, cannot work when the moral center of the democratic rulers is a liberal center. Christians can vote on which policy is best to ensure the continuance of the Christian customs and manners of European civilization. But they cannot vote on the best means to advance liberalism and destroy the white Christ-bearing race. Such a vote is blasphemy just as leaving the fate of the unborn to the mercies of the democratic process and leaving Christ to the democratic mercy of the Jewish rabble (“Give us Barabbas”) is and was blasphemy.

This world has been called, quite correctly, a vale of tears. But our Lord gave us the hope that our tears, when consecrated to Him, could soften and ultimately redeem the pain of this world. That is what our Europe, which is no more, was all about. Liberalism intensifies the agony of existence by destroying the white moments of the soul, those moments on earth when we feel connected to Him and to our kith and kin. There must be something inside of us that passes judgement on the culture of democracy. We can’t live in that nightmarish world where there is no light, no love, and no God. The devil’s dream on Mt. Aksbeck, to mar the work of God, cannot be our dream. We are not the democratic minions of the devil, we belong to non-democratic Europe, the Europe whose people did not disdain the God who made the deaf to hear, the blind to see, and the dead to rise again. Are such things so inconsequential that we can leave His Europe behind for democratic Europe? It cannot be, nor shall it be. +

Not of the World

While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. – John 17: 12-20

_________________

The Pharisees, seeking to “entangle Him in His talk,” asked Christ, “Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?” Christ’s reply shut the Pharisees’ mouths. “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” Christ never refuses to give an answer to anyone who is seeking the truth. But He knows the Pharisees. They have already made their decision about Christ; He must die so that they can continue to reign over the Jewish people in the name of a Messiah who will come in the future. If they acknowledge Christ as the Messiah, what would become of them?

Our modern Pharisees, the liberals, have made the same determination as the ancient Pharisees. The vision of Christ crucified, Christ risen, must die so that they, the liberals, can reign in perpetuity as the heralds of a new kingdom of God on earth, which is always in the future when all white Europeans have been purged from the face of the earth. And that is what liberalism is all about. Christ must die so they can reign.

The sum total of the liberals’ politics is the denial and the hatred of the living God. They must always be at war with the European people, because it was the European people who championed the living God. You can try to hold on to your “Churchianity” and avoid the persecution of the liberals by denouncing the racist and sexist antique Europeans, which is exactly what our modern “Christians” have done, but that will not stop the liberals from throwing the Judases of Churchianity into the fire with the faithful Europeans. All Europeans must die so that pharisaical liberalism can live.

The modern pharisaical liberals have done the old Hebraic liberals one better. Whereas the Hebraic Pharisees claimed to be the rulers of all that belonged to God’s realm, they still needed Caesar’s approval to proceed against Christ, who was a threat to their ungodly realm of ungodliness. The modern liberal Pharisees do not need Caesar’s approval to move against the ungodly Europeans, because they have control of Caesar’s realm and God’s realm. Church and State serve the liberals in a satanic unity of thought and purpose that has made the 21st century the first non-Christian century in the European people’s long history.

Even though the faith in Christ as true God and true man died out in the 20th century, there was still an ethical remnant of that faith remaining. That is why I cite the 21st century, when the ethical Christian remnant has disappeared as well as the faith from which that remnant came, as the first completely non-Christian century in the European people’s history. Horrific sins such as sodomy and abortion have been institutionalized in modern pharisaical liberalism along with the blasphemy of negro worship. And it is the liberals’ plan to ensure that sin and blasphemy remain at the heart of modern Europe. They have created a vast international network to keep the European people permanently in bondage to Satan and the powers of darkness. That vast international network has a non-local habitation, the European nations, and it has a name: it is called Academia.

The European people have been educated out of existence. They have been taught that racism and sexism are the unpardonable sins, which cry out to the liberal Pharisees for vengeance. Racists and sexists must be purged. So it is written, so it shall be. But the white European, whom the liberals call a racist, is in reality a man who rejects the blood and sex cults of the heathens. It would be more accurate to call such a man the last man with pietas. And the sexist? It would be more accurate to call the white sexist a patriarchal Christian – a man who believes that men and women have complementary and distinct roles in life that have been ordained by God.

Certainly the most striking aspect of John, chapter 11, is the apostle’s account of the raising of Lazarus. All our lives hinge on the truth of St. John’s account: “Lazarus come forth.” But what happens after Christ raises Lazarus from the dead is also quite striking. St. John tells us that “many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. But some of them went their way, to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.” It is impossible to fathom people who could witness a man’s resurrection from the dead and only be concerned about the persecution and punishment of the man who performed the miracle. But such are the Pharisees and such are they that serve them. The antique Europeans were like unto the Jews who saw and believed. The modern liberals are like unto the Pharisees who wanted to kill Christ and Lazarus. And our modern churchmen are those “who went their ways to the Pharisees” in order to tell them all about the treacherous Christ who was going around destroying the pharisaical religion of the Jews. “They are racist, they are sexist,” the churchmen tell the liberals. “We must destroy them,” the liberals respond. “Where your treasure lies so dwells your heart.” Churchmen such as Francis the blasphemer attack the antique Europeans because they, the churchmen, treasure their positions in the liberal world. If they were to champion the Christ of the antique Europeans, the Christ who raised Lazarus from the dead, they would lose the favor of the principalities and powers of this world. But what did our Lord say about this world? “For what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” It has been the assigned task, assigned by the liberals, of organized Christian Jewry to convince their charges that a man can have this world, he can worship at the shrines of the liberals’ heathen gods, and still retain his soul. Is that possible? No, it is not. We can’t exchange incarnate Europe for liberal Europe and still retain our souls.

Both my parents, who were of the World War II generation, were the first members of their families to go to college. And as a consequence they were much more liberal than their parents. As the offspring of “educated” parents, I and my siblings also went to college, and as a consequence we were more liberal than our parents, because in the Western world we are taught, in school and church, that life is a progression toward the light. What is old – monarchies, patriarchal families, a heartfelt faith in Christ crucified, Christ risen, are unenlightened prejudices and superstitions of the past, which are bad. Many people in the 20th century tried to hold onto a lukewarm Christianity by blending Christ with the progressive, evolutionary zeitgeist of liberalism. Teilhard de Chardin was the foremost exponent – “Everything That Rises Must Converge” — of that Christian blending. But the blending does not work. At the hour of our death we have only one hope. The hope expressed in John 11: 25-26: “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”

The belief in the progression of man toward the light of liberalism is incompatible with the faith expressed in John 11: 25-26. We must come to terms with that. We need to decide whether the antique Europeans or the pharisaical liberals and the lukewarm churchmen, who seek to blend Christ with liberalism, are right. I became spiritually older than my parents when I felt drawn to the vision of the antique Europeans. I could not find any beauty, faith, or love in modernity. Nor can I understand, from within, how my people can feel at home in modern Europe. Intellectually I see that they have embraced modernity, but I cannot understand their love of modernity in my heart. I still hope that there will be some that find their way back to an older, European vision of life that compels them to embrace Christ and His people and reject Satan and his minions.

The miracle itself, the rising of Lazarus from the dead, is the central event of John 11 just as the healing of the man born blind is the key element in John 9. But in both miracles what happens afterward amongst the Pharisees and the fearful unfaithful speaks to us across the chasm of time. The parents of the man born blind stepped away from their son because they “feared the Jews; for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that He was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.” And the Pharisees reaction to Christ’s healing of the man born blind is the same reaction they have to His raising of Lazarus from the dead. They seek to kill Christ to protect the corporate entity of pharisaical liberalism, because they, and they alone, as the corporate entity, can bring God to the people. So it has been in organized Christian Jewry throughout the European people’s history. Once Christ rose from the dead the Pharisees couldn’t kill Him directly so they had to kill His image in man, they had to kill the people who believed in Him. And the fearful and timid, whom we shall always have with us, still fear the treachery of the Pharisees’ spies and the wrath of the Pharisees more than they love Christ. To be cast out of the synagogues of liberalism is a terrible thing. It seems, if we look at the modern Europeans, that it is the worst thing that can happen to a man. But is it the worst thing that can befall us? What happens to the man born blind when he defies the Pharisees by refusing to denounce Christ?

Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him?

And the man born blind gets a direct answer from Christ because Christ knows that he loves much.

And Jesus said unto him, Thou has both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.

My heroes, the heroes of Christendom, are the men and women who defy the corporate entity of pharisaical liberalism. The man born blind saw past the blind sight of Dylan Thomas to the source of all light. And our Lord sought him out! That is the reward of all those who defy corporate, pharisaical liberalism.

They have done it awfully well in this, the 21st century. Church and state are one incorporate entity, they are one synagogue: to be cast out from their synagogue is a fearful thing. But if we are not prepared to be cast out of their synagogue, He will not seek us out to give us comfort. We will not have a chance to say, “Lord, I believe,” as we fall at His feet and worship Him. We will be allowed, if we deny Him before men, to fall at the feet of the liberals’ shrines to reason, science, and the noble savage. Is that enough? If we settle for that then we are of all men most to be pitied. The culture of the incarnate Lord was built on the same faith in the divine humanity of God that Christ had when He decided to take flesh and dwell among us. He knew that He would not perish in Mary’s womb nor would His death on the cross destroy His sacred humanity. He rose again on the third day. Every aspect of our liberal world has been set up to ensure that we do not believe in our God-given humanity. We must not, the pharisaical liberals tell us, believe that He, through His divine humanity, will draw us to Him through our humanity. All that is human must die so the corporate entity of liberalism can live. That is a perverse reversal of what must happen. Corporate, pharisaical liberalism must die so that the vision of Christ crucified, Christ risen shall live, once again, in the hearts of His people. He will seek us out if we reject the Pharisees and turn to Him. +

All Through the Night

Sleep, my child and peace attend thee
All through the night;
Guardian angels God will send thee
All through the night.
Soft, the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and vale, in slumber sleeping,
I my loving vigil keeping,
All through the night.

While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night;
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night.
O’er thy spirit gently stealing,
Visions of delight revealing,
Breathes a pure and holy feeling,
All through the night.

Deep the silence round us spreading,
All through the night;
Dark the path that we are treading,
All through the night.
Still the coming day discerning,
By the hope within us burning,
To the dawn our footsteps turning,
All through the night.

Star of Faith the dark adorning,
All through the night;
Leads us fearless toward the morning,
All through the night.
Though our hearts be wrapped in sorrow,
From the home of dawn we borrow,
Promise of a glad tomorrow,
All through the night.

When I was a child, the arrival of the Labor Day weekend was bittersweet. It meant a picnic with my family – parents, siblings, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, etc. – but it also meant the reptilian entity called ‘school’ was making ready to squeeze me to death in its coils  as soon as Labor Day ended. I think the experience of school itself was horrible enough, but the anticipation of it was even worse. But let me leave the bitter for the sweet for a moment.

I vividly remember one particular Labor Day family gathering in the park when I was seven years old. My Welsh grandmother, who had nine brothers, was there along with many of my great uncles. There was a vast panorama of white working class people in the park, trying to get a little bit of family time before the work week started up again. When the various picnic activities were ended, we all sat down at the picnic tables and ate. After the meal one of my great uncles stood up and sang the Welsh song, “All Through the Night.” I still remember feeling my heart pounding as my great uncle sang. Why did it have such an effect on me? I don’t know, it just did. And I must stress that my great uncle was not a professional singer, he was a coal miner, but I never heard a better rendition than his on that Labor Day weekend over a half century ago. The words “unstudied from the heart” come to mind. It was not democracy that summoned that song from the depths of my great uncle’s heart, it was his connection to his people, the antique Europeans, in and through the Savior that inspired him to sing of our Savior’s love, which is with us always even “All Through the Night.”

As the presidential election approaches, we should remind ourselves that nothing that is good in America stems from democracy. The United States is not a beautiful city on a hill, a beacon light for other nations, it is hideous monstrosity of a nation conceived in Jacobinism and dedicated to the proposition that the wisdom of men is greater than the folly of God. The Democratic Party has recently made explicit what was implicit in our country from its foundations: that white Christians are not welcome in America. The so-called religious liberty granted to Christians in the early days of our nation was a calculated and successful gambit to remove any and all Christian influences from our government. “You can attend tax exempt church services on Sunday if you support secular Jacobinism throughout the week.” That ‘compromise’ still exists. So long as organized Christian Jewry, the churches of Christ without Christ, act as the ‘Amen chorus’ for liberalism, they will be allowed to exist. But any attempt by a European Christian to act according to the faith that is in him, the faith of our people when they had hearts of flesh, shall be condemned and dealt with. Modern ‘Christians’ have sold their birthright for the privilege of singing ‘Amen’ to liberalism in the church of their choice, with the added ‘privilege’ of avoiding the penalties inflicted on non-liberals, who are the people that must be dealt with.

I see in that park from long ago, a bit of country in the midst of the city, where I communed with my white kith and kin and listened to “All Through the Night,” a glimpse of heaven, the heaven that all of us see when we place ourselves in Christian Europe. Dickens, in Oliver Twist, describes that heaven as only he could:

Who can describe the pleasure and delight, the peace of mind and soft tranquillity, the sickly boy felt in the balmy air, and among the green hills and rich woods, of an inland village! Who can tell how scenes of peace and quietude sink into the minds of pain-worn dwellers in close and noisy places, and carry their own freshness, deep into their jaded hearts!… The memories which peaceful country scenes call up, are not of this world, nor of its thoughts and hopes. Their gentle influence may teach us how to weave fresh garlands for the graves of those we loved: may purify our thoughts, and bear down before it old enmity and hatred; but beneath all this, there lingers, in the least reflective mind, a vague and half-formed consciousness of having held such feelings long before, in some remote and distant time, which calls up solemn thoughts of distant times to come, and bends down pride and worldliness beneath it.

It was a lovely spot to which they repaired. Oliver, whose days had been spent among squalid crowds, and in the midst of noise and brawling, seemed to enter on a new existence there. The rose and honeysuckle clung to the cottage walls; the ivy crept round the trunks of the trees; and the garden-flowers perfumed the air with delicious odours. Hard by, was a little churchyard; not crowded with tall unsightly gravestones, but full of humble mounds, covered with fresh turf and moss: beneath which, the old people of the village lay at rest. Oliver often wandered here; and, thinking of the wretched grave in which his mother lay, would sometimes sit him down and sob unseen; but, when he raised his eyes to the deep sky overhead, he would cease to think of her as lying in the ground, and would weep for her, sadly, but without pain.

That is what Christian Europe was all about. The great monster death lost its horror when the horror was joined with the hope in His resurrection from the dead and our loved ones’ resurrection in and through Him. The antique Europeans had faith, they loved much. And we have lost their faith, the faith that He is with us all through the night. We cannot replace the loss of that faith by celebrating the end of racism and/or the triumph of democracy. Just the opposite is the case. We need a return to racism, which is white pietas, and we need an end to democracy, which is the reign of Satan, and a return to Christian Europe.

Four more years of Trump might mitigate, ever so slightly, the liberals’ onslaught on the white race. But his re-election will not change the course of liberalism nor will it do anything to restore that which must be restored, our Christian European heritage. We need to step outside the liberals’ realm entirely and embrace the Star of Faith that leads us fearless through the night of liberalism toward the morning of Christian Europe. We can’t be part of their realm. Yet, as their realm, the liberals’ realm, becomes more blatantly satanic, our churchmen have become more blatantly pro-liberal and anti-Christian. At some point we must remember what we were and see what we have become. That which was lost was and is our hope and our glory; that which we have now constitutes “the horror, the horror.”

During my college and graduate years I met a great deal of academics like that music critic I mentioned last week, who thought you could enjoy Bach’s music without sharing Bach’s faith. Many of the professors I knew loved the great European poets, such as Shakespeare and Spencer, but not one of those academics believed in the God of Shakespeare and Spencer. They thought they could luxuriate in their poetry while immersing themselves in the culture of reason, the noble savage, and science. It doesn’t work that way. As the faith which inspired the artists and poets of Christian Europe disappears, so do the fruits of that ancient faith disappear. The white Christian artists and authors of long ago are now being systematically eliminated from our modern college curricula, just as the customs of our Christian ancestors are being eliminated from our common culture — which is really not a culture, but a non-culture which celebrates the triumph of Satan over all things noble, true, and beautiful, all things Christian.

There are no more loving vigils kept by the cradle of a Christian child, surrounded by guardian angels. Instead we have day care centers in which our young children are surrounded by bored, hard-as-nails, minimum wage ‘caretakers’ who torment children in the buildings consecrated to Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr. Our children are being violated not only in their bodies but in the depths of their souls. The liberals hate children and childhood, because our Lord said that we must all be like unto little children in order to inherit the kingdom of heaven. What must we be like unto in order to be part of the liberals’ kingdom of hell on earth? We must be like unto the archangel Lucifer who hates Christ with a passionate intensity and seeks to destroy Him by destroying His image in man. The outward physical ugliness of the modern whites who disfigure their bodies in the style of African tribesmen and tribeswomen mirrors their inner ugliness. There is no femininity, no gentleness, no kindness in the women, and no Christian masculinity, no charity of honor in the men. The election of a Republican who wants to destroy all things white and Christian at a slower rate than the Democrats is not going to turn our de-souled, inhuman men and women into human beings again. We need to restore our “All Through the Night” culture, a culture which bred men and women with faith, hope, and charity.

The liberals incrementally deadened the souls of the European people under the guise of democracy, science, and enlightenment. Now the European people live in hell without the knowledge that they live in hell – “Your soul deserves the place to which it came, If having entered hell you feel no flame.” It is no longer a case of ‘if these shadows are not altered, Europe will become hell.’ The European nations have become hell, and the most ‘enlightened’ nation of them all, the United States, has led the way to hell. Our nation is a synthesis of perversions and blasphemies. Whatever is perverted, whatever is ungodly is considered good and pure in our nation, and whatever is pure, noble, and humane is proscribed in our nation. We can hold elections from now till doomsday if we like, but when your democratic elections take place in hell, it is of no consequence who gets elected, because the option to leave hell and return to His Europe is not on the ballot. If we don’t feel the flame, nothing will avail us.

Karl Stern, a Jewish convert to Catholicism, wrote a book called A Pillar of Fire, in which he attempted to show that the insights of psychology (he was a psychiatrist) were compatible with Christianity. I read the book as a young man, and I kept thinking of Gremio in Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. He asks, “Who would be married to hell?” Modern psychology is the heir of scholastic theology. The scholastics, in contrast to our Lord and St. Paul, told us we could know God through reason and the study of nature, rather than through a sympathetic connection to God – our hearts joined with His sacred heart. The practice of psychology makes the same presumption about man that the theologians made about God: You can look at men through the eyes of science and “pluck out their mystery.” Is that possible? No, it is not. The scientizing of God through theology and the scientizing of man through psychology has led to an anti-vision, a purely biological vision, of man and God. They are both confined within the borders of the natural world. That world is hell. Our God is not from hell. He harrowed hell to save poor sinners, but He is not of hell, He belongs to heaven, and so do we unless we choose to stay with Satan in his kingdom of eternal night.

In a civilization in which the people have given a place to the incarnate God at their racial and familial hearth fires, a glimpse of heaven is given to all the men and women, no matter how lowly their station in life, who are part of the life of that civilization. Their daily lives become consecrated lives; they partake of His heavenly kingdom, the kingdom that is within human hearts imbued with a love for the Savior. What happens when He is not allowed into a civilization because that civilization is consecrated to reason, science, and the noble savage? The people of that civilization become the citizens of hell, because their daily lives are consecrated to Satan. We must feel the flame and fight back against all the forces of hell. We cannot be neutral: Satan does not take prisoners, he devours the lukewarm. Just as our Lord harrowed hell, we, in imitation of Him, shall defy the flames of hell and cling to our Savior all through the night, until we see His star of faith over Europe once again.+

Who with Me My Burden Shares?

Lear. O, ho, are you there with me? No eyes in your head, nor no money in your purse? Your eyes are in a heavy case, your purse in a light; yet you see how this world goes.

Glou. I see it feelingly.

King Lear


My best friend in junior high school and high school shared my hatred of school, and we also shared, as we advanced into our late teens, the existential angst of the modern age. We felt lost, just as those characters in the modern novels and movies, such as The Loneliness of a Long Distance Runner and Cool Hand Luke, felt lost. Let me dwell on Cool Hand Luke for a moment, because my friend Michael saw the movie a dozen times.

The movie is based on the true story of a man who escaped from a prison in Georgia, was captured again, escaped again, and then lived the rest of his life in freedom. Yet the people who made Cool Hand Luke chose to have the main character die at the end after making a plea for help to an unknown God who has forsaken him. The Man with No Eyes, the fearsome sharpshooter working as a guard, brings Cool Hand Luke down in an old abandoned church. Of course Luke had to die, forsaken by God and man, because that is the modern, Thomas Hardy vision of reality: “As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods – they kill us for their sport.”

My friend went one way after high school and I went another way. He progressed from existential angst to radical Jacobinism, living the Henry-Miller life in Paris, and embraced every radical cause he could find in order to anesthetize himself against the spiritual void of modernity. I went another way – I returned, not to the liberal, blended Christ of school and church, but to the Christ of old Europe.  In that old Europe, I see a different ending for Cool Hand Luke. As the Man with No Eyes raises his rifle and has Luke in his sights, he suddenly sees before him someone other than Luke. He sees an image of Christ on the cross. He lowers his rifle, wipes his eyes, and takes aim again. But again, that image of Christ blurs his vision, and he puts down the rifle for good. As Luke is returned to prison, we hear the words from the hymn that a convict had been singing earlier in the film:

Through this world of toil and snares,
If I falter, Lord, who cares?
Who with me my burden shares?
None but thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.

When Luke leaves prison a few years later he leaves with the knowledge that Christ will indeed his burden share. “None but thee, dear Lord, none but Thee.”

The liberals are still proceeding according to the internal dynamic of liberalism — they are ‘progressing.’ But toward what are they progressing? They are progressing to the kingdom of their god on earth. It is a man-made progression, inspired by the devil, independent of and hostile to Christ. The white Europeans will never be welcome in the kingdom of god on earth, because the new god, the god of the liberals, is a savage, man-god spawned by the forces of progress, which were and are reason and science. That new man-forged god, the noble savage, is a jealous god who will not share his throne with Christ; hence, the people whose ancestors championed Christ must be destroyed. All the liberals’ talk about inclusion and diversity is a lie, framed and inspired by the father of lies. The new world will not be racially diverse, it will be a savage, barbaric world of colored heathens. A few whites might be kept around as computerized beasts of burden, but that is doubtful. The colored heathens have not shown any inclination in South Africa or Rhodesia to keep whites alive in order to maintain their kingdoms of hell on earth.

The 20th century was the first century in the Christian European people’s history when the belief in Christ’s resurrection from the dead entered the realm of the nursery school — it became a pleasant story like “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” but it no longer was seen as a reality. As a result the modern age gave birth to paintings in which the human personality was unrecognizable and to literature — “Rage, rage against the dying of the light” — in which modern man voiced his despair. That type of art and literature was seen as a progression from the ‘unrealistic’ art and literature of old Europe. Is that true? Is Picasso’s art more realistic than Rembrandt’s art, and is Joyce’s Ulysses more realistic than Scott’s Ivanhoe? It all depends on Christ’s resurrection from the dead. If He be not risen, then modern art and literature depicts reality. But what if Christ did rise from the dead on the third day? Then the antique Europeans’ art and literature is the ‘realistic’ art and literature, and modern art and literature is trash. And we should stop trying to turn the trash we call democracy into a civilization. Instead we must turn to the people who believed in Christ’s resurrection from the dead and build a realm based on their faith.

I once read a music critic’s commentary on the back of an album of Bach’s music in which he stated we need not share Bach’s faith in order to enjoy Bach’s music. Au contraire, we must share Bach’s faith in order to truly enjoy Bach’s music. If we do not believe that Christ rose from the dead, then Bach’s music only heightens our existential angst. We either weep because such a celestial vision is not true, or we ridicule Bach for his naiveté. That music critic represents the older conservative liberals who still want the fruits of a Christian civilization without the faith that built that civilization. Men cannot live with the existential angst of the avant-garde artists and the modern literati. They must either cling to the fruits of the older, Christ-centered Europe, like the music critic, or they must develop a new faith to replace the faith of the antique Europeans. Enter, stage left — the far left — the noble savage. He is the “rough beast” born in the liberals’ new Jerusalem, but he was not born in a stable in Bethlehem, he was born in the abstract minds of a people who left Christ for Satan. In the late sixties we saw the transition from the existential angst of “Christ be not risen, we are alone in the universe,” to “Christ was a fraud, we are now free to worship the trinity of reason, the noble savage, and science.”

In the aforementioned movie Cool Hand Luke, we can see the beginnings of the new 21st century religion of the modern Europeans. In one of Luke’s escapes he enlists the aid of two negro children. By this act he shows us that he is a really “cool hand.” How else can a white man be cool? In and of himself he is nothing, he must graft his soul onto the black man. By the 21st century the white Cool Hand Lukes disappear and the noble black savages replace them, just as Christ was replaced by the colored heathen when Christian missionaries stopped trying to convert the colored heathens and worshipped them instead.

Liberalism is built on man’s desire to avoid the cross of Christ. But the cross of Christ leads, according to the antique Europeans, to Christ’s resurrection from the dead. If we avoid the cross of Christ, we will not share in His resurrection. That is the obstacle Satan, the first liberal, had to overcome. He had to make us see Christianity as a crucifixion without the resurrection. And he has done it. The resurrection, according to Satan, is irrational and unscientific, so who would willingly embrace a religion that places the shadow of the cross over our ‘pleasures’ here on earth and cannot deliver the goods at the hour of our death? At least science, the new Holy Ghost, can anesthetize us as we pass into non-existence. It’s a horrible, nightmarish vision of reality, but Satan has managed to make that nightmare the new faith of the European people.

J. J. Pollitt, in his book Art and Experience in Classical Greece, points out that when the Greeks lost their faith in the gods, they had a period of existential angst, the golden era of Greek drama. However, that era metamorphosed into the era of vase painting, in which the Greeks showed an obsession with the trivial and superficial details of life. This is how it must be once a people has lost their faith. They cannot live with the “better not to have been born” vision of Sophocles’ Oedipus or the “rage, rage against the dying of the light” vision of Dylan Thomas. They will move on to a religion of triviality.

We have moved on to a religion of triviality. Karl Barth’s comment on the new religion as articulated by Feuerbach is on the mark: “We have heard Feuerbach speak, and we have heard something nauseatingly, disgustingly trivial.” To be content with the banality, the perversity, and the triviality of modernity is the greatest tragedy that can befall a people. Is there any remedy for such a tragedy? Yes, there is — the remedy that King Lear finds. His religion of triviality disappears when he sees life “feelingly.” Hearts that love will find Christ, they will embrace His cross, because they will know, through their love, that His cross leads to the resurrection.

In the early days of my marriage when I was struggling to keep my growing family financially solvent, I had a string of part-time and temporary jobs, one of which was teaching English literature. I had a student in one of my classes, of whom I became quite fond. He was a great reader, but his reading was of all modern authors. When he brought up his favorite authors in class, he was always frustrated when I spoke disparagingly of them. “Mr. _____, how can you say that?” he would indignantly ask, when I was dismissive of Stephen King and other such authors. In class and outside of class I took the trouble to show him the triviality of the modern authors, by exposing their lack of depth and by pointing out the inexhaustible depths of the antique European authors. A transformation took place. That young man saw, to paraphrase Hank Williams, “the light.” It so seldom happens, but it can happen. A man can leave the culture of Satan, the culture of triviality and perversity, and return to the culture of Christ crucified, Christ risen. But he must have a heart of flesh.

The vase painting culture of the Greeks in their declining years could not sustain them. They fell to the Romans who absorbed their culture of perversity and triviality and syncretized that culture, along with the Jewish culture, the mystery religions, and every other culture on the face of the earth, save one. The Roman system could not absorb the Christian faith, because Christ was and is the God above the syncretic religion of perversity and triviality. When Rome sought to absorb Christ, the European tribesmen resisted Rome in the name of Christ. We now have come full circle: The United States of America, with all Europe following in her train, has become the new Rome. All religions are welcome in the united republic of perversity and triviality, save that one religion: The religion of Christ crucified, Christ risen, as believed in and championed by the antique Europeans.

Can perversity and triviality sustain the European people? The Romans maintained their empire for centuries upon centuries. So who can say that the liberals’ modern Roman Empire cannot be sustained for many, many centuries to come? It certainly appears that the men and women of modern Europe are determined to go off the cliff with the swine. However, there is one crucial difference between the old Rome and the new Rome. The rulers of the old Roman Empire had to crush the new faith, the emerging Christian faith, while the rulers of the new Roman Empire must crush the old faith, the Christian faith of the European people. Will that make a difference? Will the European people claim their “rights of memory,” will they insist on bringing the Christ of old Europe into the new Europe? It doesn’t seem likely they will; they seem content to wallow in the pig slime of perversity and triviality. But Satan will not take any chances. He would rather destroy the entire white race than take a chance that even one European might invoke the memory of Christian Europe and sound a charge that will encourage other Europeans to strike back at the liberals’ kingdom of hell on earth. The European people will never be welcome in the liberals’ Rome. I claim my “rights of memory” in Old Europe. The European people who still have hearts of flesh will do likewise. As for the rest? They are no longer Europeans, they are the un-men, the servants of Satan. +

And Make Ourselves a Realm

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. – Colossians 2: 8


Once the revolutionaries have triumphed and institutionalized all things satanic, the conservative must cease to be conservative — he must become a counterrevolutionary, or else he will become an aider and abettor of liberalism, despite his claim to be a conservative. Franco and Pinochet were counterrevolutionaries; Reagan, Thatcher, Tyndall, Samuel Frances, and Trump were and are conservative liberals. They were and are against certain aspects of liberalism, but they did not and do not challenge the basic Jacobin assumptions of their nation nor the other European nations. And the Jacobin foundations of modern Europe must be challenged and destroyed because Jacobin Europe is Satan’s Europe.

O here, where late our little city stood,
And now this desolation darkens us,
Friends, with rapid hand and heart renewed,
Building, once more uprear we root and tower,
And make ourselves a realm.

Our “little city” was Christian Europe, liberalism was the desolation that darkened our city, and the liberal tower of Babel built on reason, science, and the noble savage is what we must root out in order to rebuild our European city. However, I do not see, in this realm of Satan, anyone who thinks we should ‘uprear’ liberalism from its roots and build a Christian realm. Why is that? Why is there no one who believes we must destroy the liberals’ realm instead of trying to work within the parameters of liberalism to affect “meaningful change”? The answer is quite simple – you do not seek to destroy that which you believe in. And all modern Europeans believe in at least two out of three of the linchpins of liberalism. They all believe in reason and science – who will be so base as to deny the validity of reason and science? Some neo-pagan conservative liberals such as Jared Taylor and some populist conservatives such as Tyndall and Francis do not and did not believe in the noble savage, but most conservatives believe in all three of the linchpins of liberalism. The liberals’ kingdom of eternal night depends on the progenitor of science and the noble savage, and that progenitor is pure, abstract reason, divorced from the human heart.

My mother, who adhered to the ethics of the Christian faith all her life but was unable to believe in Christ, because His resurrection from the dead was in conflict with reason and science, had a book of fairy tales, which I inherited when she died. In that book is a remarkable fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen called “The Snow Queen.” In that story we see the sickness of modern man diagnosed, and we see what the cure for that illness is.

If you know the story, you will recall that the two principle characters are a girl named Gerda and a boy named Kay. In the story some wicked Hobgoblins have “a mirror with the power of causing all that was good and beautiful, when it was reflected therein, to look poor and mean; while that which was good for nothing and ugly, stood out and looked worse than ever. In this mirror the most beautiful landscapes looked like boiled spinach, and the best persons were turned into frights, or appeared to stand on their heads.”

One day the mirror breaks, “and now it worked much more evil than before; for some of these pieces were hardly so large as a grain of sand, and they flew about in the wide world, and when they got into people’s eyes there they stayed; and then people saw everything perverted, or only had an eye for that which was evil. Some persons even got a splinter in their heart, and then their heart became a lump of ice. Then the wicked Hobgoblin laughed till he almost chocked, for all this tickled his fancy.”

Of course the evil splinters are the splinters of reason, and when one of those splinters pierces Kay’s heart he falls victim to the evil Snow Queen and becomes unable to say the Lord’s Prayer. “He was quite frightened and he tried to repeat the Lord’s Prayer; but he was only able to remember the multiplications table.” What should that simple story, told by a man regarded as a simpleton, tell us? It tells us what St. Paul told us. We should search the Scriptures with our hearts in order to discover that the folly of God is greater than the wisdom of men.

When Gerda finds Kay, he is a lost soul.

Little Kay was quite blue with cold; for the Snow Queen had kissed away his feelings, and his heart was a lump of ice. He was pulling about some sharp, flat pieces of ice, which he laid together in all possible ways, puzzling out how to make something with them. He fitted them into a great many shapes the most complicated, for they were the “Ice Puzzles of Reason.”

What a remarkable description of reason divorced from the human heart – “The Ice Puzzles of Reason.” Did Kay recover? Yes, he did because —

Gerda wept hot tears which fell on his breast, and they thawed his heart and melted away the bit of the mirror there. He looked at her, and she sang:

The rose in the valley is blooming so sweet,
The Child Jesus is there the children to greet.

Then Kay, like all the Christian Europeans who preceded him, wept and believed.

Jesus wept at Lazarus’s death. If He knew that He was about to raise Lazarus from the dead, why did He weep? Was it because He, who could see into the future, saw all the suffering that death would cause mankind? How could the heart of hearts not weep in the face of all that suffering? Our hope is in our tears of grief. My mother had a heart that loved, but she also had a heart with a splinter of rationalism in it. Did my tears, shed on her deathbed, joined with the tears of our precious Savior, take the splinter of rationalism from her heart and leave only His divine love there? That is my hope. We all live in the valley of the shadow of death, which is made all the darker because of rationalism, but is it not possible that at the last hour many who seemed lost in the icy cold of rationalism will feel the warmth of His love? We must, for our own sake and for the sake of our loved ones, fight rationalism with all our heart, mind, and soul.

Our Lord told us that we must, if we are to inherit the kingdom of heaven, become like unto little children. Why then do we create a new language, a language not of the heart, when we speak of our Lord? Paul was not a theologian nor were the apostles. Shouldn’t that tell us something? Why do we need a more scientized and rational exposition of the Christian faith than that which is presented to us in the Gospels and the epistles of St. Paul? We don’t need theology, but the devil does need it. He wants mankind to study and scientize God until God becomes the sum total of the natural world, a world devoid of the personal Savior who gives us the hope that the grave is not the natural end of our lives.

The tears we shed at the deathbeds of our loved ones, if they are consecrated to Him, are sacred prayers. Surely He hears such prayers and surely He will come to our loved ones and us at that fateful hour. Christian Europe was built on the tears and prayers of those who wept and believed. I do not see how our rationalism, our science, be it the science of God or the science of the natural world, or our worship of the noble savage, has improved on the hope-and-prayer civilization of the antique Europeans. I don’t want to read or hear about any more conservative plans for saving our Western democracies, I want to rise and ride to the sound of the trumpet of our Lord who bids us root out rationalism from our hearts and our civilization. All counterrevolutions start in the human heart and then extend to the greater world. In the European fairy tales the third dumb brother, the brother imbued with the foolishness of God, always goes forth into the great world armed only with a heart of flesh. He always triumphs where his older brothers, the rationalists, fail. So shall we triumph if we eschew rationalism and seek Him through the narrow gate of the human heart which leads us to His sacred heart.

St. Paul tells us that “faith worketh by love.” If that is so, how can we have faith if we try to know God by way of abstract reason? We must come to God with hearts capable of loving that which is good, noble, and pure. Do we have such a capacity? Not if we accept the theologians’ God of pure intellect as the true God. If God does not have a human heart, if the incarnation is a lie, which all the Gnostic churches assert, then we are lost. Let us take refuge in the fleshpots of Egypt, the only refuge for rationalists who have come to the conclusion that man is a glorified beast without a heart that longs for and can know the Savior, whose divine love has conquered death.

It doesn’t seem that there are any Europeans left who will repudiate rationalist Europe and return to the fairy tale Europe of Hans Christian Andersen. It all seems so hopeless. And that is what the devil wants. He wants all Europeans to stay imprisoned within the walls of rationalism. He wants the only remedy for our loneliness to be the company of other rationalists. Such ‘company’ will only make us feel our loneliness the more acutely. But where there is one, there are others. I am not a rationalist. I do not accept the devil’s world. The kingdom of heaven is within. Let us cling to the fairy tale vision in defiance of the rationalist hell around us, and build ourselves a realm that honors the vision and heart of the antique Europeans who saw the God beyond reason, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. +

Endeared with All Hearts

Engraving of Gustave Dore illustration of the Vision of Death

And when Elisha was come into the house, behold, the child was dead, and laid upon his bed. He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the Lord. And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm. Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes. And he called Gehazi, and said, Call this Shunammite. So he called her. And when she was come in unto him, he said, Take up thy son.

II Kings 4: 32-36

Thy bosom is endeared with all hearts,
Which I by lacking have supposed dead;
And there reigns love, and all love’s loving parts,
And all those friends which I thought buried.
How many a holy and obsequious tear
Hath dear religious love stol’n from mine eye
As interest of the dead, which now appear
But things remov’d that hidden in thee lie!
Thou art the grave where buried love doth live,
Hung with the trophies of my lovers gone,
Who all their parts of me to thee did give:
That due of many now is thine alone.
Their images I lov’d I view in thee,
And thou, all they, hast all the all of me.

Shakespeare, Sonnet 31


Prior to the coming of Christ the history of the Jewish people, beginning with Adam and Eve, was a history of a falling away from God and then a return to God. There were always prophets who tried to call the Jewish people back to God. They seldom were treated kindly, but they did keep a certain segment of the Jewish people connected to the living God; one thinks of Elijah and the seven thousand. But it seems, at the time of our Lord’s incarnation, that the prophets had lost out to institutionalized atheism: The Pharisees had lost all touch with the living God and replaced Him with a ‘practical’ system presided over by ‘smart men’. When Christ came before the smart men, proclaiming that He was the Son of God, the smart men had Him crucified.

The European people have repeated the spiritual journey of the Jews. Their history after their acceptance of Christ has been one of sins and revolts against God, but it has also been a history of devotion to, and the love of, Christ the Lord. The utopian Christian theologians, who are not Christian, have focused only on the sins of the Christian Europeans; they have refused to look at the love and devotion of the antique Europeans and have written them off as no different than the pagans. Actually the theologians tell us that the colored pagans are better than the Christian Europeans. Dismissing the theologians, who are not interested in the truth, let us state the obvious – the European people, prior to the 20th century, were a people who saw Jesus Christ as the Alpha and the Omega of existence. There was still a prophetic fire within the European people that made them seek Christ, even in the midst of their sins and their constant backsliding. But when we come to the 20th century of the Europeans’ history, we no longer see hearts with a longing for the Savior. The prophetic fire has been replaced by a liberal Sanhedrin. The Pharisees of rationalism, science, and the Noble Savage have institutionalized sin and the revolt against God. And that is the difference between modern Europe and old Europe. Our ancestors sinned much and often revolted against God’s will, as all mortals will do, but our ancestors did not institutionalize sin and revolt. They did not call sin virtue and revolt progress. The Europeans of the 20th century have entered the Caiaphas stage of their history; they have put Christ on trial and found Him guilty of blasphemy against their new gods of reason, science, and the Noble Savage.

That really is the crux of the matter. The European people have rejected Christ because belief in His resurrection from the dead is irrational, unscientific, and racist. Why is it racist? Because it was the white Europeans who believed, as a people, in the unscientific, irrational resurrection of Christ. The believing European Christian is now in the position of the original apostles who were on the fringes of institutionalized Jewry, trying to stay true to the voice of the prophets who urged them to adhere to the prophetic core of their faith and continue looking, in spirit and truth, for the true Messiah. A true European Christian must be an exile from our modern ‘Grand Inquisitor’ Europe, he must stay on the outside of a world that has institutionalized, in church and state, the old Pharisaical religion of Caiaphas and the smart men. The conservatives, who want to conserve democracy and the Constitution, want to conserve that which should be destroyed, a system that is in line with the Sanhedrin whose members said, “Let us crucify Him.”

In Shakespeare’s Macbeth, two men, Macbeth and Banquo, stood on the heath confronted by witches. Both men were offered the world if they acted according to the will of the witches. Macbeth succumbed to the witches’ will and Banquo did not. The European people also had their moment on the heath. They had a choice between the way of the cross, the way of the antique Europeans, who loved much and believed, and the way of the Pharisees, who were willing to make common cause with Satan and crucify the living God in order to retain their positions of power in this world. There must be a return to the spiritual realm of old Europe. The modern Europeans’ decision to live and die with the Pharisees of modernity must be reversed.

The Pharisaical system of government, our vaunted democracy, and our Pharisaical churches have been designed to give us bread and circuses in this world and ease us into an anesthetized eternal sleep in the next world. What did old Europe offer us? It offered us the hope that if we shared His cross we would also share in His resurrection. But we can only believe in that through the faith that emanates from love. If we don’t have the heart to love what is good, what is pure, what is noble, then we will not believe that Christ is with us in this world and has gone to prepare a place for us in the next world. The great fallacy of the 20th and 21st century leaders in church and state has been and is the mistaken notion that you need only appeal to a man’s reason and then all will be well. If you present mankind with abstract theories of a utopian world, they will fall in line, rejecting old Europe, and help you to build a perfect society. But pure reason, divorced from the heart that loves, encourages men to turn on one another in an endless competition for the things of this world that the intellectual utopians have told them is their birthright. All will share in the new utopia, except the unreasoning people of faith who believe in the Son of God. All are equal, but some are more equal. The ‘more equal’ – not the meek – will inherit the earth in the Pharisaical system of the Illuminati because they are the second person of the Illuminati’s trinity while the white race, collectively, is the devil.

Queen. No, no! the drink, the drink! O my dear Hamlet!
 The drink, the drink! I am poison’d. [Dies.] 

Hamlet. O villany! Ho! let the door be lock’d.
 Treachery! Seek it out.
                                                [Laertes falls.]

Laertes. It is here, Hamlet. Hamlet, thou art slain;
No medicine in the world can do thee good.
In thee there is not half an hour of life.
The treacherous instrument is in thy hand,
Unbated and envenom’d. The foul practice
Hath turn’d itself on me. Lo, here I lie,
Never to rise again. Thy mother’s poison’d.
I can no more. The King, the King’s to blame.

Hamlet

Let us lock the doors and seek out the villains who have separated the European people from their kith, their kin, and their Savior. Behold! The clergy, the clergy’s to blame. Faith cannot exist without love, nor can love exist without faith. That incorporate union of love for the Savior in and through His people sustained the European people’s faith in the Son of God. The rational wedge that the clergy placed between the European people and Christ was the equivalent of a dagger to the heart. And when the love that once was there disappears because there are no hearts of flesh left who truly love unto the end, then the Christian faith will disappear from the face of the earth.

From the 1850s to 1900 the European intellectuals who believed that Christ rose from the dead were in the minority. That is why Dostoyevsky said the main issue was, “Can an intelligent man, a European, believe in the divinity of Christ.” Once that question was decided by the ‘intellectuals,’ that Christ did not rise from the dead, the stage was set for the non-intellectuals’, the grazers’, loss of faith in the 20th century. An ethical remnant of the Christian faith survived through the first half of the 20th century, but ethics without a religious core cannot last forever. Most Europeans in the latter half of the 20th century, and there are still a few left in the 21st century, thought the customs and manners that stemmed from a belief in Christ’s resurrection from the dead could be maintained without that belief. The parents in the 1960s who believed that sex should be confined to the marriage bed of a man and a woman but who had lost their belief in Christ, were shocked when their offspring practiced free love. Why the shock? If Christ be not risen, are not all things permissible? Now, there is no longer any shock at such ‘trivial’ things as premarital sex because now even the ethical remnant of faith in Christ as true God and true man has died out. But death has not been, nor can it ever be, conquered by a superficial faith in reason, science, and the Noble Savage.

The greatest tragedy that can befall an individual or a society is the tragedy of superficiality. Balzac, who accurately depicts the decadence of a Parisian society that has embraced superficiality as a substitute for faith, has the main character in one of his novels make a death-bed declaration both pompous and irreverent: “Now, I must take holy communion.” Balzac tells the reader, “So you see, superficiality and vanity can be a substitute for religious faith.” Balzac’s Paris has become modern Europe. We have made superficiality and vanity a substitute for faith in Jesus Christ. No heart that truly loves can accept the death of his loved ones. Death is a sword in the heart. There are only three remedies for that stab in the heart. We can cling to His word that tells us death shall not triumph over His love for us; we can stay anesthetized with the opiates of drugs and alcohol until we pass into nothingness; or we can embrace the superficiality of a world governed by the European Sanhedrin, crucifying Christ anew by crucifying His people while we indulge our pagan appetites through our love of the Noble Savages of color.

If you are part of the new Sanhedrin’s world order you have left the Christ of the Gospel, who is the Christ of old Europe, behind. There can be no blending of the new and the old worlds. There are two roads and they lead us to very different destinations. The one road leads to hell and the other road leads to His house of many mansions. Young Oliver Twist, forsaken by the whole world, strikes back against overwhelming odds, against the denizens of Satan, because they have denigrated the memory of his mother. I shall always love Charles Dickens and his progenitor, the bard of Avon, because they got it right.  It is the heart that loves which sustains a truly Christian civilization. We must bear our cross and love much, because “He is the grave where buried love doth live.” They have denigrated our Savior and our people who loved much: We must become like unto the apostles who stayed away from the Sanhedrin and clung to the true Messiah, their God and Kinsman, Jesus Christ. We must remain in the upper room where there is faith, hope, and charity. +
