And the newspaper said one consultant to the agency has briefed US Defense Department officials of some highly unusual discoveries ― including items retrieved from “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.”
The Times said that while the Pentagon has claimed that it disbanded its UFO office, that department has in reality simply changed names and moved, and a US Senate committee report suggests it will be expected to make some information public every six months.
The main goal isn’t alien spaceships, but rather something much closer to home: to see if confounding sightings ― including some by the military ― are actually advanced technology from rival nations.
The Times report also hints at possible artifacts from UFO crashes, citing former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
“After looking into this, I came to the conclusion that there were reports — some were substantive, some not so substantive — that there were actual materials that the government and the private sector had in their possession,” he told the newspaper.
Astrophysicist Eric W. Davis, who has been a subcontractor and consultant for the Pentagon, told the newspaper he briefed the Defense Department in March about the “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.”
He said he has examined some of the materials and concluded “we couldn’t make it ourselves.”
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also indicated that he was concerned that supposed UFOs could be advanced tech from foreign nations.
“We have things flying over our military bases and places where we’re conducting military exercises, and we don’t know what it is, and it isn’t ours,” Rubio, who is acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CBS4 in Miami last week.
“I would say that, frankly, that if it’s something from outside this planet, that might actually be better than the fact that we’ve seen some technological leap on behalf of the Chinese or the Russians or some other adversary that allows them to conduct this sort of activity.”
He said the objects in these sightings “exhibit, potentially, technologies that you don’t have at your own disposal” making them a national security risk.
The military’s encounters with possible UFOs have come under intense interest in recent years since several videos were leaked in 2017 showing encounters with fast-moving objects including one given the nickname “Tic Tac” because it looked like one of the candies.
This object, still not publicly identified, dropped from 60,000 feet to just 50 feet in a matter of seconds:
The Navy told UFO researcher Christian Lambright in a Freedom of Information Act request that that releasing more information “would cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States.”
To The Stars Academy, a company cofounded by former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge which has worked to reveal UFO information and helped expose the 2017 videos, celebrated the newest developments.
“TTSA welcomes the increase in transparency and is steadfast in our mission to educate policy makers and support continued interest and engagement on this topic,” the organization said via Facebook.
THE DAWN OF THE NEOPURITAN WOKE CANCEL CULTURE ONE-THOUSAND-YEAR REIGN
By Dr Ragnar Purje
Submitted on behalf of Dr Purje by a friend.
The world of today (self-evidently and irrefutably) is the world that was shaped by events of the past. The modern world of today has extraordinary luxuries that are taken for granted. The two most basic and profound being filtered fresh water that rushes – from taps – to quench thirst and clean the body. Then there is the switch, when ‘turned-on’, provides billions of people with an energy, known as electricity, for all manner of inventions, with perhaps one of the most important inventions being that of the (food keeping) refrigerator.
The past is the past and cannot be changed
No matter how far one extends into the past, the past (self-evidently) cannot be changed. It is also a self-evident truth that what has taken place in the past has created the world that exists today. However, even though this immutable self-evident universal truth exists, the world is now seeing a process of where individuals, groups, collectives, and even organisations and corporations are apologising for what has taken place in the past.
What is more, these apologists, and the associated demanders (that the past must be expunged), all of these people continue to live in a society and utilise all of the advantages and luxuries of what these (especially Western democratic societies) provide in terms of all of the amenities and inventions that offer a life that is now referred to as the 21st century. These people are what could be considered as being the Hysterical Historical Histrionic Hypocrites (HHHH) – mertilessocracy.
Irrational and hysterical
The thinking and the actions of the HHHH are irrational, hysterical and hypocritical. Their actions are also unethical and immoral. The actions of these HHHH demanders, who are unlawfully destroying historical monuments (and more), are the actions of an irrational and hysterical lynch mob.
The silence of the lemmings
The apologists (who are also hysterical and irrational hypocrites’ lemmings) remained silent; when, and while, the self-righteous demanders were rioting, looting, plundering, carrying out acts of arson and operating unlawfully. None of the lemming apologists apologised for the actions taken by the demanders. The silence of the lemming apologists, at these times, showed them to be cowards and irrational hypocrites.
Could it actually be?
However, could it actually be that the cowardly hypocritical apologists, and the demanders, were and in fact correct? As one publication has written: “Monuments are falling,” (and of course rightly so) “buildings are being renamed (which of course also need to be destroyed through the purification of fire), “and brands are trying to get on the right side of history. Hip, hip, hooray and three cheers. No, no, no those words (hip. Hip, hooray, and three cheers) are offensive.
However, and even so, this publication continues: “The breathless pace at which acknowledgement of an inhumane past and vows to do better are happening indeed make this a transformational moment. … Tributes to white supremacy are being dismantled one symbol at a time.” Never mind the words of Thomas Sewell:
However much history may be invoked in support of these policies (affirmative action), no policy can apply to history but can only apply to the present or the future. The past may be many things, but it is clearly irrevocable. Its sins can no more be purged than its achievements can be expunged. Those who suffered in centuries past are as much beyond our help as those who sinned are beyond our retribution.” (Thomas Sowell, Civil Rights: Rhetoric or Reality)
What matters is being self-righteous
What this can only mean is that the demanders and the cowardly, sycophantic hypocritical apologists are, in fact self-righteously right! One could now therefore finally argue (and rightly so), that the time is now right for all of humanity (and all nations) to stand united and shout: “free at last, free at last, Karl almighty, we are free at last”; as this self-righteous, just, principled, and hard fought enlightened and righteous purification and elimination of the past is now taking place; what we are now seeing is the dawn of a new age: the dawn of the dawn of the neopuritan one-thousand-year reign of the woke cancel culture.
The dawn of the neopuritan one-thousand-year reign of the woke cancel culture
Perhaps now is the time to see, and possibly more importantly? to accept, acknowledge and embrace this neo-eternal self-righteous truth, that the torch, of the previous Unjust and Unrighteous so-called Age of Reason and Enlightenment of the past, has been extinguished; and a new torch has been lit that has now been passed onto a new and truly enlightened neopuritan ‘woke’ ‘cancel culture’ generation.
Purity, insight and self-righteous enlightenment
This new and pure, insightful and truly enlightened righteous neopuritan ‘woke’ generation, is – and can only be – the awakening of a new and profoundly pure and enlightened one-thousand-year reign. Therefore, we should now, as others have demonstrated, drop to our knees, bow our heads and acknowledge (with an associated prayer), as the year 2020 is witness to the dawn of this now one-thousand-year reign of the neopuritan Age of Social Purification, Insightful Illumination, Justice and Woke Cancel Culture Puritanism. This neopuritanism and enlightenment, must, of course, acknowledge the social genius of Maximilien Robespierre.
As righteous history informs that before, during and after, of what was known as the French Revolution, Robespierre’s goal, was to ensure (just like today with the one-thousand-year-reign of the neopuritans) that France became a nation where all citizens would become virtuous, pure and equal before the law. And so, just like now, in the year 2020 (with the neopuritans of the Woke and Cancel Culture generation), Robespierre, in 1794, set about to ensure that the only society that was to flourish, was a society that was committed to nothing but having a pure, direct and virtuous collective democracy come into existence. To achieve this wonderful righteous ‘woke’ and cancel culture goal, in February of 1794, Robespierre explained what would be taking place:
If the basis of popular government in peacetime is virtue, the basis of popular government during a revolution is both virtue and terror; virtue, without which terror is baneful; terror, without which virtue is powerless. Terror is nothing more than speedy, severe and inflexible justice; it is thus an emanation of virtue; it is less a principle in itself, than a consequence of the general principle of democracy, applied to the most pressing needs of the patrie [that of the country or nation state]
Illumination, ‘wokeness’ cancel culture, righteousness, spiritual actualisation, social peace
Of course, and self-evidently any reasonable, insightful and socially just and pure virtuous and righteous thinker will recognise that when Robespierre uttered the word terror, he (just like the ‘woke’ cancel culture generation of today) did not (of course) actually mean terror. What Robespierre of course actually meant was virtue and righteousness (as do the ‘woke’ cancel culture generation of today know): “[‘wokeness’ virtue and righteousness] is nothing more than speedy, severe and inflexible justice; [all of this is] thus an emanation of virtue.”
Clearly and irrefutably, justice that is inflexible is pure justice
What this of course means is that when the application of justice (especially ‘woke’ neopuritan and righteous justice) is being inflexible, this, of course, and self-evidently means that an unfiltered universal and purified truth is being illuminated and justice is being spiritually actualised. This then means that there is now only one standard; one principle, one truth, where all are equal before the law. If the law was flexible, this would self-evidently mean that that law was somehow fluid, the law had room to bend. This would mean that the law would now be subject to impure thoughts; and impure thoughts lead to corruption, and corruption means there was no justice; there would only be anarchy! And when this takes place, then all of society is in danger. This simply cannot and must not be allowed to happen. A pure and inflexible law, as noted by Robespierre (and which has been and is being enacted by the neopuritans of the woke and cancel culture generation of today), is the only way that justice can serve all people ethically and morally. Justice therefore must be severe, unyielding, inflexible and socially immutable because truth, virtue and righteousness is, and has always been inflexible.
Society must act with virtue and righteousness
What is taking place now, with the toppling of statues, monuments and the burning of books, is a righteous act, that is because it is a process of elimination and a purification of the past. This same principle of virtue, elimination, annihilation, purification and indisputable inflexible righteous justice must – and will – of course be applied to all. Except for those who are already pure of mind, thought and action. Therefore, those who are not already pure of mind, thought and action must take responsibility for their impure thoughts and actions, they must openly and sincerely, and with a pure heart, publicly apologise; and use the words: “I take responsibility”; “I am responsible for the past”; “I am sorry for what has happened in the past”; “I am responsible for the past, and for this I am truly sorry”. Anything less would be seen by those (who do have a pure heart and mind, like the woke and cancel culture neopuritans), would consider these apologies as being duplicitous. Anything less than a pure, open and unedifying cringing apology would be the act of a hypocrite.
Anything less would be hypocrisy
Extending this to monuments and building, this of course means that the purifying of monuments and buildings must continue; however not only in Western Civilisations, but all over the world; anything less would be hypocrisy. Therefore, the Acropolis, the Colosseum must be felled, so too must all of the buildings, throughout the world that are built on Greek or Roman architecture.
Eagerly erasing the egregious and offensive
Then there is what the neopuritan woke cancel culture generation would and do describe as the appalling and egregious Mount Rushmore National Sculpture of Dakota in the USA, and the equally egregious offensive monument of Genghis Kahn. The Genghis Khan Equestrian Statue, which is part of the Genghis Khan Statue Complex is a 131-foot (40 m) tall statue of Genghis Khan on horseback. To the neopuritan woke and cancel culture generation, all of these buildings and monuments must blasted into purified dust. Anything less would be hypocrisy.
Anything less would not be as pure as what woke offers all of society
One of course cannot forget the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel, the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount, the Arch de Triumph in Paris, the monument known as Mecca in Saudi Arabia, the Taj Mahal, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the massive Hagia Sophia, Turkish Ayasofya, Latin Sancta Sophia, also called Church of the Holy Wisdom or Church of the Divine Wisdom, cathedral built at Constantinople (now Istanbul, Turkey) in the 6th century ce (532–537) under the direction of the Byzantine emperor Justinian I. And of course, there is the obscene Sistine Chapel paintings, the statue of David and the six-metre monument of Alexander the Great, which is located in one of the most popular areas of Thessaloniki, in Nea Paralia right by the sea.
Toppling the tower, plundering the palaces, smashing monuments
Not forgetting the Eiffel Tower, the Palace of Versailles, Buckingham Place, Windsor Castle and, of course, the distressing ‘slave built’ monuments of the Egyptian, Aztec, Mayan and Inca pyramids. What about the capitalist driven Hoover Dam. All of these monuments, along with all of the above, in line with the pure principles that the cancel culture and woke offers; all of these monuments and buildings must be destroyed.
Purity is inflexible. Truth is inflexible. Virtue is inflexible. Righteousness is inflexible
The dawn of the one-thousand-year reign of the neopuritan Age of Social Purification, Insightful Illumination, Justice and Woke Cancel Culture Puritanism is here. For those who do believe, for those who do not understand, it is time to stand aside, or be purified.
A satirical, tongue in cheek look at the logical consequences of Woke Cancel Culture. By Dr Ragnar Purje. (Submitted on behalf of Dr Purje by a friend)
There is a reason the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is a universal truth, because everyone, but everyone says so; plus, and addition to that, the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement allows for the all-important development, enhancement and advancement of the unadulterated purity of mind, purity of knowledge, and of course, purity of pure truth, not someone else’s opinion.
The unadulterated pure mind This unadulterated purity of mind, purity of knowledge, and of course, and the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement’s purity of truth is supported, enhanced and advanced by the Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity of Purity, Truth and Knowledge.
The only universal truth The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is now the only universal truth that can be involved in all aspects of human life, and human disciplines. Because of this purity of universal truth, this means the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement has the right to comment on and advance the potential of education, science, music, the arts, all levels of entertainment and the media, and of course medicine and surgery.
The nirvana of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement will, and proudly so, as demonstrated by words and actions, intends to remove, expunge and obliterate all of human history that does not meet with their values, and the associated true values of the Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity of Purity, Truth and Knowledge. This will mean there will no longer be a need for (and in fact there should not be) a multitude of cultures. There will now be but one culture, the Cancel Culture, which is all about truth, purity and knowledge. To recognise anything to do with the past, would, of course (as proudly, openly, sincerely, and very enthusiastically demonstrated by the nirvana like actions of all of the members of the Committee of the Rolling Statue Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement), be an acceptance of racism.
The Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge) The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement in conjunction with the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge) will, of course – and rightly so – continue with the removal of all statues, except for the statutes the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement approve.
Already known The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement have already made it known, with the support of all of the people of the world, that the statues (which the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement does not approve of) are an abhorrent and daily reminder of racism, elitism, separatism, chauvinism, sexism, genderism. This means that these unapproved statues cause pain. They must be – and as the world has seen – these appalling historical statues and monuments have, now thankfully, been brought down by culturally enlightened and unified cheering crowds, all of which clearly and unambiguously live by applying the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge).
Multiculturalism is racist The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement has shown that cultures must be cancelled. This now extends to the universal Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement that informs that any culture that allows multiculturalism to exist must not be allowed to exist. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is about the universal truth of cancelling cultures. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is not about double standards or hypocrisy.
The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth It lives for and it only applies the truth of what is the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement. Therefore, it is a self-evident Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement universal truth that the word multiculturalism is inherently a racist descriptor. That is because the word and the social behaviour of multiculturalism separates humans into a multiple of separate cultures; and this needs to be canceled. What can no longer be accepted is the separation of the purity of one humanity. Multiculturalism separates humanity, which self-evidently means that multiculturalism is racist.
Separate cultures are racist The human race, because of the Ministry of Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement, and Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity (that of Purity, Truth and Knowledge); acknowledges that separate and different cultures can be racist, sexist, elitist. These different and separate cultures divide humanity and that means they are racist to the core. This means a nation, any nation, by definition (as initiated cultural movement that is now the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement) is also racist.
Walls and borders must be purified That is because every nation (which has its own separate culture) has metaphorical as well as physical borders and walls. And these abhorrent borders and walls separate the human race. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is about one thing, and one thing alone, bringing all of humanity together as one human race. That means the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is not cancelling anything, it is enhancing every person and culture by cancelling all other cultures. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is all about the purity and truth – of one culture – which is all about one truth and one truth alone: the purity of the singularity of humanism and equalism.
National flags are racist This then of course means, according to the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement, that every national flag must be purified by the fires of the members of the Flag Burning Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement Committee. Added to this of course, is that any form of oral language and literature (digital or otherwise), that talks about or presents an image of these national racist flags, will need to be purified by fire. Fire is purity. Fire purifies.
Burning of books purifies a culture History informs that one of the most profound and sacred ways to cancel a culture is to burn their books. Australia is proud to boast, that recently that it was able to metaphorically burn two magazines, by having them forcibly from the shelves of supermarkets. This is the immense social power that the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is able to bring to bear on any organisation, government, culture collective or social entity. There is but one humanity. There is but one voice. Everything that separates and divides humanity is – as not presented or agreed to by the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement – is racist.
Cultural clothing is racist and sexist What this purifying of the human race, and the expunging of the racism of the past must, universally and self-evidently, lead to where cultural clothing must cease to be worn. The cultural clothing of the past has been and is racist and sexist. This racist and sexist cultural clothing has also led to racist and sexist attitudes. All clothing now must reflect the purity of the human form, the human race, and universal human condition, that human spirit, and of course, the universal truth and purity of what is the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement.
The words male and female are sexist The sexist words of male and female can no longer exist, they will be cancelled. There is now – under the protection of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement – only culture and one humanity. This single culture and humanity will be reflected through the cultural clothing that will now be worn. There will now, thanks to the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement, be only one style of cultural clothing. This cultural clothing will reflect the human form, the one culture, and the one human race. There will be no male or female apparel; this has now been cancelled by the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement. There will only be culture specific clothing that will be worn by everyone. The words male and female will be cancelled, these sexist words will now be replaced by the words gender of choice.
Make-up of any kind is racist and sexist Coupled with this cultural clothing purity, there will be none of the previous sexist and racist presentation and use of make-up. All of the different colours, shades and face alterations that is offered and presented by make-up, is the worst type of racism and sexism that exists. There is but one face, and that one is the one face of the human race. The human race must be displayed in its open and natural glory; not hidden under the artificiality and falseness of make-up make-believe.
Face coverings of any kind are racist and sexist Any face covering, by any person separates the one human being from the other. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is about removing all racial and sexist displays that separates. As with make-up which changes the human face, the face covering, which hides the human face, is, as noted by the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is unacceptable. The human face must be gloried equally. Neither make-up, and most certainly any face covering, does not glorify equality. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is all about equality in its purest form and presentation.
Sport is racist and elitist The racist sport of the past will now become the sport of humanism and equalism. There will no longer be any need for uniforms. That is because, self-evidently, and of course, all of the different teams and national uniforms of the past were about separation, rather than inclusion, and as such uniforms were and are. Thanks to the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement, instead of having the racism, and the elitism that sport of the past produced, and its associated uniforms, sport can be enjoyed for its purity, without uniforms. What matters in sport is the equalism of wantness.
Selection and competence are racist and elitist markers No more selection of teams. That is the equivalent of slaves being selected. There will no longer be scores or scoring. There will be only the wantness of participation. Team and/or any individual athlete selection, will no longer be based upon, or even considered to the previous racist and elitist standard, that of selection-based competence. The elitist and racist word competence will be expunged and be replaced by the equalist word wantness. If an individual, wants to play sport, they will be admitted into any sport they want. No person will be asked to leave, or be removed from any sport unless the individual in question wants to leave. The racist and elitist culture of the Olympic games is now cancelled. In its place the world will have inclusion, participation, wantness, and equalism.
Refereeing and sports administration is inherently racist and elitist Referees, umpires, judges, adjudicators, administrators, will longer be part of any sport. That is because these positions are inherently racist and elitist. These positions separate humans rather than unite humanity. Humans are being judged. Humans are being examined according to their actions. There is no purity of sport and culture when humans are judging other humans. Judging another human is inherently racist and elitist.
Individual human wantness replaces the racist and elitist act of selection Individual sport participation will, of course, as noted above, be based on individual human wantness. Wantness brings with it the purity of personal celebration and desire. When this takes place, the human spirit is praised and elevated. There will, of course, be no placings. Having sport judged by having placings is inherently racist, and elitist. Placings denigrate the celebration of the universal human condition and that desire of wantness. The act of placings brings about different classes of humans. One only needs to look at the racist past to witness this appalling application of placingism, racism and elitism. All sports, whether it be teams or individuals, separate humans from each other. This is now cancelled. Human equalism is what matters.
Rules and regulations are brutal, racist, exclusionist and most certainly elitist All sports are a witness to the appalling racist, elitist and brutal application of rules and regulations that always only led to an outcome where physical, mental, emotional and psychological pain was being inflicted on the participants, all of the enjoyment of a howling racist crowd. Sport is racist. Sport is elitist. Sport does not celebrate the human spirit. However, under the guidance and care of the Ministry of Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement, sport will now be an activity that is equalist, and which therefore celebrates the human race and the human spirit.
Cultural music is racist There are different forms of music that are played in different cultures. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement will not permit this abhorrence and denigration of the universal human condition to continue. Just like the racist statues, these different cultural forms of music, will be thrown into the rivers of past despair. Culturally different music separates. Music that evolved from the fields of slaves must no longer be played. Just like the statues, music that began in the fields of the forlorn, must, along with the statues, be expunged and thrown into the cold dark waters of the racist past, so that this pain of these slaves of the past can no longer (as with the statues) continue to be reminded the world of slavery.
Orchestral music is racist and elitist The presentation of orchestras and the elite separation that is used to form orchestras is elitist and racist. That is because this process does not allow for wantness to be celebrated. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement will ensure that wantness, will be the prime social and single cultural driving force that will force orchestras to become culturally inclusive. There will no longer be orchestral recitals; that is because they are elitist, and this elitism leads to racism, and this artistic form of racism must be swept away by the winds of cultural purity, truth and knowledge.
Cultural names are racist The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement will not allow for names. Names signify gender. Names separate humans into different groups and classes. Names are therefore inherently racist. Names will be replaced by numbers and barcodes. Names and barcodes are gender neutral, they are inclusive to all of humanity.
Product names are racist Product names separate and therefore this leads to racism. Fruit and vegetables. What a terrible indictment that is to the concept of equalism. Fruit and vegetables need to be known as food. This is food for wellbeing and food that purifies the human spirit. Food and product names will be cancelled.
The equalism of equiugenics must be the only truth of purity What will follow next will take a little longer, but it will remove the potential for any form of racism that once existed in the past to take any traction in this now one pure culture and society. This process of equiugenics will take place through the enhanced unified universal human entity of bringing all cultures together and living under the umbrella of one culture, the culture of humanism.
The purity of equiugenics in action Equiugenics, like the removal of racist statues, will begin the all-important biological unification of the human race. The equiugenics process will not only improve and equify the genetic quality of the human race, it will bring about a process where all humans will not be judged on any differences; such as the racist and elitist descriptors of the past, such as race, competence, creed, culture or colour. That is because the process of equiugenics will provide the wonderful purity of where there will now be only one human culture, one human creed, and one human colour. What was once the racist, sexist, elitist, human past will now (as with the racist statues) be expunged and relegated to a past that will no longer be thought about or read. All references to this abhorrent history will have been burned, and ashes of this racist past will be thrown into the air and be gone with the wind forever.
Inspirational ethics of Robespierre With this insight and purity of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement and the actions initiated by the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge) it is time to recall the revolutionary thinker and truth seeker, Maximilien de Robespierre. Robespierre is the equivalent of being the leader of what is now the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement. It was Robespierre (just like the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement) who urged the formation of an army of the people, the purpose of which was to enforce revolutionary laws and sweep away any ideas or actions that were contrary to what is now known as the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement.
Now is the time Now is the time (as proven by the actions of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement), to now dismantle (physical and otherwise) of all vestiges of the past that in any way contradicts the thinking, the purity and the philosophy of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement and that of the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge), which is ensuring (just like the Ministries of Truth and Love, that we – the unpure and ignorant – can and will only watch films, and read books that meet with the principles and the standards of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement. The Third Reich tried to do this process in the now irrelevant past; however, because they The Third Reich, were not, and had not evolved cognitively, or culturally to being intellectually illuminated (i.e., the state of being ‘woke’), their actions were in actual fact, selfish, ignorant and culturally impure.
Brick by brick, plank by plank, fire by fire What this now means of course, that the Woke and Cancel Culture Community will now begin to purify, by dismantling (brick by brick) and they will burn the premises in which they now live, so that none of these impure and filthy colonial reminders, and filthy capitalist establishments remain standing. All that will remain will be the pure earth.
This will be the start of the self-purification process Integrity and sincerity To ensure that the absolute purity of integrity and sincerity, all members of the Woke Cancel Culture Community, will no longer wear they filthy and culturally corrupt clothing that has been weaved and worn. Again, to ensure that there is nothing but the purist of intentions taking place, all members of the Woke Cancel Culture Community will burn all of their capitalist clothes, they will no longer wear anything except the clothes they have woven themselves. If this cannot be achieved, their sincerity and integrity will be their clothing. The motto for this will be: “It is better to wear nothing, than to be corrupt, live a lie and be a hypocrite.”
The evolution of enlightenment The Woke Cancel Culture Community are intellectually illuminated. This means that only purity exists and hypocrisy cannot exist. This evolution of enlightenment, which the Woke Cancel Culture Community has, and has demonstrated to the world by and through their purified and righteous acts of rioting, looting, arson, and the felling of statues, and the destruction of all impure monuments; the Woke Cancel Culture Community will no longer carry or adhere to having colonial or capitalist money, or any plastic symbols of this filth, i.e., what are known as credit cards. To ensure this integrity and sincerity advances further, the Woke Cancel Culture Community will no longer use anything object that has any connection to the colonial past or the capitalism that has grown from this impurity. This will mean not one member of the Woke Cancel Culture Community will use taps for running water. They will not use electricity. They will not use cars, aeroplanes, or any form of transport that is connected to the filthy past. Not one member of the Woke Cancel Culture Community, will approach or use anything to do with medical services, science, engineering, music, the arts, or anything that has an association with the colonial past and that of capitalism. Anything less than this would be hypocrisy of the highest order. Which cannot and will not be permitted. Those that transgress this purity, will be purified.
Anything less would be hypocrisy All of the members of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement (and all of their supporters in society and the media) are totally woke aware, and they all irrefutably know, and understand (in their own mind) that they are now unambiguously and totally duty bound by their own established rules (which is supported by their actions); that this – the destructive purification – of their own (former racist establishment) which now must be expunged from their lives and their social history. Anything less would be hypocrisy.
The purification of all racist statues, monuments and buildings Once this has been achieved, to ensure their universal truth advances society, it will be then that they will have the right to dismantle the past, such as the Acropolis; the Egyptian pyramids; the Aztec structures; all Roman structures; all churches, temples and mosques; all government administrative buildings in the entire world; museums; art galleries; the wonderful list of buildings to be purified is endless. Anything less would be hypocrisy.
The Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth Knowledge) We as a human race must now give thanks to the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement and to the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge), that has lifted the torch of cultural purity and has now provided the means for all humanity to destroy and burn all reminders of the past that were so impure and putrid. All of which began of course by the racist thinkers of the Reformation, that led to the Age of Reason, which became the unenlightened Age of Enlightenment, and which eventually led to the appalling racism of the single culture, and the later racism of multiculturalism; but only in Western Civilizations.
One pure universal culture – anything less would be hypocrisy The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement has created a new form of thinking, and Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity of Purity, Truth and Knowledge has provided to the means of how this process is to be achieved and perpetuated into one pure social culture forever. Everything else (thankfully), will be gone with the wind.

A universal truth is an actuality that is applicable to everything and everyone, and it is immutable to everything and everyone. When a universal truth is applied to morals and ethics, this means that a universal truth refers to that which is equal and is applied as an absolute for all of humanity. This means that a universal truth is not, and can never be racist. This universal truth – that all lives matter – is affirmed by the following United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
1. “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
2. Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
3. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
4. All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law.
5. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.
6. Everyone has the right to freedom of thought,
7. Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
8. In the exercise of his[her] rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society.
9. Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.”
Immutable universal self-evident truth
What that self-evidently means is that the statement: All lives matter, is an immutable universal truth.The life of every human is equal in every aspect of life, living and existence. As such the statement All lives matter is a universal truth; and what this means is that the statement: All lives matter is a Universal Human Right which adheres to United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Robin Dillon writes that “self-respect is a complex of multilayered and interpenetrating phenomena,” which involves affect, cognition, motivation, valuation, expectations, reactions, behaviours and actions. All of these interpenetrating phenomena “compose a mode of” thinking and “being ‘in the world’ which is considered as being “at the heart of” the self.
It is these interrelating and interpenetrating constructs that provide the intrinsic means by which the individual is able to intellectually appreciate “oneself as having morally significant worth.” What this means is that each-and-every person (and each-and-every-observer of the other) must see, know, acknowledge, accept, and have a universal understanding, that each-and-every-person is to be universally respected; which helps to advance personal self-respect and social self-respect. For the self, this means: “I respect myself.” For one the who is observing the other, this means: “That I (the observer) respect you (the one I am observing). This powerfully indicates that mutual self-respect is taking place.
Attunement of identity
Further to this Robin Dillon points out that self-respect also has “to do with the structure and attunement of an individual’s identity.” This is about the phenomena of self-respect, as it is lived, and “reverberates throughout the self,” under the overarching intrinsic and social umbrella of the moral self. This intrinsic moral-centred reverberation then acts to influence the very formation and foundation of a person’s values, emotions, commitments, dispositions, thoughts, actions, desires, and encompasses the very identity of the living self.
Intrinsic moral process
As such, self-respect can be thought of as being an intrinsic moral process of cognitions, and affects that influences the thoughts, desires, behaviours and choice of actions by the self; which then develops and forms the sentient identity of the presenting self. It is this recognition of the sentient self, which then provides the conscious means of free will. Free will allows for choice. These choices can be ethical or moral, or not.
Ethics and morals have similarities, in that both constructs relate to choices, behaviours or actions that are either ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ or ‘good’ or bad.’ However, even though both of these constructs are often used synonymously and interchangeably; the research indicates that these constructs have differences. Cydney Grannan, writing in Encyclopædia Britannica, notes that “ethics refer to rules provided by an external source, e.g., codes of conduct in [organisations] or principles in religions.
Morals refer to an individual’s own personal point of view regarding of what is right or wrong, good or bad. However, even with these differences, the research indicates there is agreement, in that both ethical behaviour and moral behaviour are about actions that are good, just or right; with the overarching immutable universal principle being: do no harm. This inevitably means an individual’s self-respect and associated moral self-worth can only prevail, if the choices the individual presents meet the universal standard of being ethical and moral.
Self-respect and moral self-worth
The profound importance of having self-respect and also living a life that has moral self-worth, is further emphasised by Robin Dillon, who refers to Immanuel Kant. An individual’s moral self-worth and their self-respect (which are ontologically fused – as a singularity – in the living essence of the self), can only be lived and expressed in accordance with the categorical imperative.
The categorical imperative
The categorical imperative is considered by Kant as being the universal “supreme principle of morality.” The categorical imperative universally informs that it is the “humanity in [all] persons, strictly speaking, that has dignity; that it is in virtue of the humanity in them that [all] humans are and so ought to be treated as ends in themselves,” and never as a means to an end. This aligns with the universal principle of personhood as expressed by Arthur Danto.
If personhood is to take place, each-and-every person must be treated with respect. According to Danto, “[p]ersons … must not be used merely as a means to someone’s end; they are in Kant’s famous phrase “ends-in-themselves” and sources of value in their own right.” Robert Downie and Elizabeth Telfer offer a similar view. They write:
‘Persons ought to be respected’ is not merely to say ‘What is valuable ought to be respected,’ but rather ‘humans ought to be respected for what is valuable in them’ … this is not a trivial claim, for it asserts that there is something worthy of respect about a human being.
Crucial axiomatic point of view
Andreas van Melsen extends the importance of this crucial axiomatic point of view pertaining to the categorical imperative, personhood, and the ontologically fused constructs of self-worth and self-respect even further. Van Melsen asserts that “each individual human is not just an instance of mankind in the same way in which a piece of copper is an instance of copper. Each individual is an original centre of being in action. His [or her] actions are [his or her] own.” And as such, must only be treated as an end-in-themselves. Anything less is an action that is unethical and immoral, and does not meet the social standard of how an individual can be identified as having, living and is presenting the essence of what self-respect is, and what moral self-worth means. And in terms of the universal human condition, and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights; this means that all lives matter.
A few weeks ago, hardly anyone in America had ever heard of Pastor Dana Coverstone, but now hundreds of thousands of people all over the country are buzzing about him. He leads a very small church in Burkesville, Kentucky and on June 25th he posted a video on Facebook about some remarkable things that he had seen in some of his dreams. He probably thought that only a handful of his friends would see the video, but it quickly went viral. At this point it has been watched by more than a million people on Facebook, and a copy that was posted to YouTube has now been viewed more than 600,000 times. Personally, I have had countless people share his video with me over the past week, and it still hasn’t stopped. But even though this video is spreading like wildfire, the mainstream media has been completely silent about it. In fact, if you do a search on Google News for “Pastor Dana Coverstone”, you won’t find a single news story about his video. What he was shown definitely does not fit their agenda, and so I expect that they will continue to generally ignore this phenomenon.
Well, it is because he saw the catastrophic events of 2020 in advance, and he was also shown that more catastrophic events are coming.
Let’s start from the very beginning. In December 2019, Pastor Coverstone had a dream in which he saw some very unusual things. The following is from a transcript of his original video that my wife put together…
Here’s what happened:
Back in December I woke up, I had a dream. In that dream I saw a calendar. Starting January 2020.
It was being flipped. I saw January, I saw February, I saw March. When March came up the hand held it and I saw the thing of finger underline the month of March, and the tap it three times.
So underline the month of March, tapped it three times.
So to me it was emphasis, something’s going to happen in March.
Then I saw April, May, June. When June came, the hand underlined June again and tapped it three times.
Then, in the vision I saw people marching, I saw protests. I saw people wearing masks, I saw lines going into hospitals. I saw typical medical doctors with needles or syringes, I saw people on ventilators I saw people who were very, very sick, very, very ill. I saw newspaper headlines trumpeting thousands of people getting sick. I saw ambulances, just flying down roads, and then I saw cities on fire.
I saw buildings being burned. I saw protesters with masks. I saw people who had their fists in the air, people who were yelling and screaming angry at just at the world. I saw courthouses, I saw state houses surrounded. I saw people who were mad at the world. I saw I saw guns shotguns specifically put in the air, held like this, (showing above his head) and I saw barriers within cities.
I told several men in my church about this and I can confirm who those men were and they’ll confirm what I’m telling you is what I told them.
Obviously this is a description of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rioting, looting and violence that erupted in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.
Since Pastor Coverstone posted his video after these things happened, a lot of people out there may think that he just made this dream up.
To head off that sort of criticism, Pastor Coverstone has posted testimonies from two men from his church that affirm that he shared this dream with them back when he was first given it. You can find those testimonies right here.
Of course there will be some people that try to claim that those two men are “making it up” too. It amazes me the lengths that some people will go to in order to deny facts that are inconvenient.
As the events of 2020 began to unfold, Pastor Coverstone and members of his church came to realize the importance of that first dream.
With that in mind, on Monday night I had another dream.
It woke me from my bed. I made notes about it. I shot some video of myself just making sure to remember.
Here’s what I saw.
I saw a calendar. Start with the calendar. As I was having this, the calendar was up, a white figure appeared. To me, it was a representing God the Holy Spirit, something pure, something righteous, something true, something Holy because there was nothing sinister about it. Nothing evil, but I heard the voice say, “part two, part two”.
I saw June, go, I saw July. I saw August, and then I saw September, and I saw the finger underneath the word September and I like like emphasizing it and tap the three times.
Then I saw October come up, and then I saw November and this is when it got real to me in the dream. I think the intensity for me… when I woke up my heart rate was about 180.
So that was Monday night, and I woke up not feeling very well at all I was up during the night not feeling well.
But anyway,… The minute the finger underlined November three times instead of tapping it, I saw a fist ball up and it hit the calendar.
And literally, the calendar exploded into the wall, the numbers seem that they were 3d and they were falling everywhere.
There was a cloud of chaos that started in there. The next thing I saw was I saw I saw armed protesters. I saw fighting in the streets, I saw people pummeling one another. I saw businesses shuttered and shut up.
I saw schools close. I saw school rooms with cobwebs hanging in them and like things like papers falling off the wall and posters… like no one had been in them for months.
I saw banks. Bank buildings with the roof being taken off. It looked almost that alien abduction because money was flying through the roof into some type of like a vacuum cleaner. It sounds kind of strange, but I was watching wealth, just being taken. I saw politicians in back rooms, making deals with people. Patting people on the back and laughing and smiling and smirking.
I saw monuments. I saw Washington DC, burning. I saw Washington DC blazing. I saw fires, everywhere. I saw people being rounded up. I saw Chinese and Russian soldiers on the ground. The Russian soldiers would tell the Chinese soldiers to go “pick up these people”…” secure this quadrant”….” secure this area”… I saw blue helmets of the UN. I saw a military things taking place. I also saw no sign of President Trump. I saw no sign of leadership in Washington DC.
The vultures that I had seen were like gargoyles. They were 10 feet off the ground…. 10 to 15 feet off the ground. They were just attacking people mercilessly. I saw people hiding in their homes and garages. I saw churches, being burned, I saw homes, being burned.
I saw absolute chaos. The fist punch on the November of 2020 is what got my attention. Then I heard the words again. ” Brace yourself, Brace yourself. Brace yourself.”
That has been something that I have heard for almost, almost seven months now. Starting, … once we get to July, it’s gonna be seven months.
I’m not claiming to be a prophet I’m not claiming proclaiming … just, … let’s see what happens in November,… through November and see if I’m right about this. But I know when I hear God’s voice, I know, I know what God’s voice sounds like to me. I know when He speaks. I know when I had a dream that I know is Him. The things that I am saying, I don’t say this to scare people but I say this to warn people that there are some pretty sinister things coming down the pike, and not just for the lost but for God’s people as well.
The second dream I had last night,… It woke me up.
In this dream. We just had a yard sale to help fund team going to Ecuador this next year.
We had a yard sale. I had asked our secretary to get some change for that for that yard sale. So, in the dream that I’m having, .. I walk to the bank. I walk into the bank to get some change. On the door, it says there’s no change available.
I saw the sign and registered in mind. I walked on in, and the president of the local bank was at the teller station. She was taking care of business.
And I said, I need to get $10 in quarters for yard sale and she said, I’m sorry, but the US Mint is no longer making currency or making change… ( like pennies nickels dimes quarters half dollars), “We’re not doing that anymore”,
“well what do you mean”
She said, … ” they stopped doing it”
I said, “Well, how am I going to be able to charge $1.50 for anything ?
She said, ” prepare for hyperinflation and just charge $2 “
Then she said to me in the dream… Oh by the way, $1 and $5 bills will follow soon after that.
Then I heard those words. “Brace yourself. Brace yourself. Brace yourself.”
I wrote these things down.
I have never gone on video and recorded the dreams that I’ve had and I hesitated to not do the one I had back in December, but everything I saw in that dream in December, came true between March and June when in the dream I was shown March through June.
I don’t think I would be doing anyone a service if I don’t show what I saw in these dreams and visions.
I believe that we’re going to see not just going to see a second huge wave of Covid between September, October, November.
We’re going to see major things with the elections,…
We’re going to see major chaos in our country.
We’re going to see troops in our cities.
We’re going to see the protests get even worse,
We’re going to see buildings burn.
We’re going to see which can only lead to civil war in this country.
And so for my friends that are believers, … I’m just going to show that what I think you need to hear.
First of all, you need to be preparing food.
Make sure you’ve got alternative forms of currency like silver or gold or whatever.
I believe you need to have an ample supply of both guns and ammunition. That’s not just the Second Amendment fan of me coming out, that is the things that we’re seeing. They are talking about defunding the police. That means one thing … you’re on your own a lot of areas.
I also believe you need to be praying like you never prayed before.
Make sure your family knows what’s going on, where you are have some sort of communication between your family about if certain things happen if certain things go down.
I’m not saying, get off the grid, and I’ve never ever said anything like this in my church. I have said I believe that this could happen but I’ve never done what I’m doing right now.
I’m telling you that between September and November of this coming year. And by the time we get to November and nothing’s happened … man you call you call me on this and say .. you are an absolute idiot and a fool for saying those things.
Go right ahead.
I realize I’m responsible for what I’ve spoken. I also know what I sense and I know the Holy Spirit’s voice enough to know that what I’ve heard.
I believe is going to happen. What I heard in December happened between March and June.
Considering the fact that “part one” ended up being completely accurate, what Pastor Coverstone was shown in “part two” should be extremely sobering for all of us.
It appears that things will start to really escalate starting in September, and it appears that November will be some sort of major turning point.
Sadly, Pastor Coverstone is being relentlessly attacked on social media for sharing what he was shown, and that is extremely unfortunate.
We live at a time when there is so much hatred in this country, and it is only going to get worse.
This chapter in American history is going to be a very painful one, and most of the U.S. population still has absolutely no idea what is coming.
We are afraid that anything we do is colonial. There’s plenty of countries willing to step into that global governance gap: China, Iran, Russia, Turkey”. — Bruce Gilley, The Times, May 10, 2018.
British post-colonial guilt is, however, having repercussions far larger than statues. There is, for instance, still total silence about persecuted Christians, according to a UK bishop leading a government review into their suffering.
Western history is seemingly being remade to portray all of Western civilization as just one big apartheid. It is as if we should not only pull down statues but also pull down ourselves. A successful democracy, however, cannot be built on just erasing the past.
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right”. — George Orwell, 1984.
What is this macabre ideological game aimed at accomplishing?… It is a power-grab to create a cultural revolution, to prevent anyone from saying that cultures are not all the same; to put Europe’s past on trial; to instill perennial remorse into consciences, and to spread intellectual terror to advance multiculturalism.
The statue in London of Winston Churchill — who stood against the Nazis during the Second World War and saved Europe from barbarism — was covered up by the city authorities during recent protests. Its visual erasure reminds one of the nude statues in Rome covered up to please Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, or the “disappearance” of portraits in the former Soviet Union.

“Antiracism is no longer the defense of the equal dignity of people, but an ideology, a vision of the world,” said the French philosopher Alain Finkielkraut, son of Holocaust survivors.
“Antiracism has been transformed… At the time of the great migration, it is no longer a question of welcoming newcomers by integrating them into European civilization, but exposing the faults of this civilization”.
He referred to “self-racism” as “the most dismaying and grotesque pathology of our time”.
Its capital is London.
“Topple the racists” consists of a map with 60 statues in 30 British cities. The removal of the statues is being requested to support a movement born in the United States after a white policeman, Derek Chauvin, killed a black man, George Floyd, by kneeling on his neck.
In Bristol, a crowd pushed the statue of philanthropist and slave-owner Edward Colston into the harbor. The act was followed in London by protests vandalizing statues of Winston Churchill, Mahatma Gandhi and Abraham Lincoln. London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan, after removing the monument to Robert Milligan, a Scottish slave trader, from outside the Museum of London Docklands, announced the creation of commission to review tearing down statues that do not reflect “the city’s diversity”. Two more statues were ordered to be removed from two London hospitals.
Vandalism and self-hatred are quickly gaining ground. The epic of great discoveries associated with British Empire has become shameful. The protests are not about slavery. No one in the UK today would cheer that period. It is rather a call for cultural cleansing of all the works contradicting the new mantra: “diversity”.
“A new form of Taliban was born in the UK today”, wrote Nigel Farage, referring to two giant ancient Buddha statue that were blown up by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. “Unless we get moral leadership quickly our cities won’t be worth living in”.
The list of statues to be removed includes the names of Oliver Cromwell and Horatio Nelson, two major figures in British history, as well as Nancy Astor, the first woman to be elected to the British Parliament and take a seat in 1919. Also on the list were the names of Sir Francis Drake, Christopher Columbus and Charles Gray (the prime minister whose government supervised the abolition of slavery in 1833).
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, expressing opposition to the removal campaign, said:
“We cannot now try to edit or censor our past. We cannot pretend to have a different history. The statues in our cities and towns were put up by previous generations. They had different perspectives, different understandings of right and wrong. But those statues teach us about our past, with all its faults. To tear them down would be to lie about our history, and impoverish the education of generations to come.”
British post-colonial guilt is, however, having repercussions far larger than statues. There is, for instance, still total silence about persecuted Christians, according to a UK bishop leading a government review into their suffering. There is also, notably, a retreat from the world’s stage. “When the West loses confidence in itself, because of excessive or misplaced guilt over colonialism, it turns to isolationism”, noted Bruce Gilley, a professor of political science. “We are afraid that anything we do is colonial. There’s plenty of countries willing to step into that global governance gap: China, Iran, Russia, Turkey”.
Post-colonial guilt is also suffocating freedom of speech in the UK. The former British “equality watchdog” chief, Trevor Phillips, was suspended from the Labour Party after allegations of “Islamophobia”. Phillips’ guilt? Being critical of multiculturalism. According to Phillips:
“In my view, squeamishness about addressing diversity and its discontents risks allowing our country to sleepwalk to a catastrophe that will set community against community, endorse sexist aggression, suppress freedom of expression, reverse hard-won civil liberties, and undermine the liberal democracy that has served this country so well for so long.”
The activists who campaign to remove the statues want radically to change the look of the British capital. The clash seems to consist of, on one side, violent censors who bully everyone, and on the other side, cowardly, appeasing politicians, who are afraid and bow to the vandals. Monuments are a vital and visible part of a global city; they embody their place in the history of a city, otherwise only bus stops and Burger Kings would remain there. These protestors appear to wish for a revised, sanitized history. If we do not quickly understand that, if we erase our past, as the former Soviet Union tried to do, it will be easier for people to create their vision of our future with no rudder to anchor us or our values. We will be left with nothing in our hands but shattered pieces of our history and culture.
This movement of hating the West — which has, as all of us do, an imperfect history — seems to have begun in British universities. In Cambridge, professors of literature asked to replace white authors with representatives from minorities to “decolonize” the curriculum. The student union of London’s prestigious School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) asked to remove Plato, Kant, Descartes, Hegel and others from the curriculum, because they were “all white” — as if the color of our skin should be the sole determinant of our thoughts. In Manchester, students painted over a mural based on Kipling’s poem “If”.
A scholar of colonialism, Nigel Biggar, said that a “climate of fear” has returned to British universities. The University of Liverpool recently agreed to rename a building honoring former prime minister William Gladstone. At Oxford, meanwhile, the statue of Cecil Rhodes, philanthropist and founder of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), risks being the next to go.
“There is a bit of hypocrisy,” Lord Patten, the chancellor of Oxford, commented, “in Oxford taking money for 100 scholars a year, about a fifth of them from Africa, to come to Oxford, and then saying we want to throw the Rhodes statue… in the Thames”. He said that his own view remained the same as one “expressed by Nelson Mandela at a celebration of the Rhodes Trust in 2003”: that despite the “problems associated with Cecil Rhodes in history, if it was alright for Mandela, then I have to say it’s pretty well alright for me”. But not for the revisionists.
Western history is seemingly being remade to portray all of Western civilization as just one big apartheid. It is as if we should not only pull down statues but also pull down ourselves. But a successful democracy, cannot be built on just erasing the past.
The statue in London of Churchill — who stood against the Nazis during the Second World War and saved Europe from barbarism — was covered up by the city authorities during recent protests. Its visual erasure reminds one of the nude statues in Rome covered up by authorities to please Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, or the “disappearance” of portraits in the former Soviet Union, of people whom the Politburo decided had fallen out of favor. There is a falsity in erasing one’s history. One may not have a perfect history, but it is one’s history, nevertheless. As the historian Victor Davis Hanson wrote, a country “does not have to be perfect to be good.” Excising the distasteful parts does not change what happened; they may even be replaced with parts that are more distasteful.
Some London museums already adopted this covering-up and self-censorship a while ago. The Tate Gallery in London banned a work by John Latham that displayed a Koran embedded in glass. The Victoria and Albert Museum showed, then withdrew, a devotional art image of Muhammad. The Saatchi Gallery featured two works of nudes overlaid with Arabic script, which prompted complaints from Muslim visitors; the museum covered the works. The Whitechapel Art Gallery purged an exhibit containing nude dolls.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary just revised the definition of “racism” to include “systemic racism”, presumably meaning that the entire society is guilty and unjust.
The censors seem to want to control our mental universe, as in George Orwell’s novel, 1984:
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right”.
This process of Western self-abasement began long ago. The Labour Party councils in the UK, for example, began to examine all the statues under their jurisdiction. The mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, instead of defending the rule of law, called the violent removal of the statue of Colston an act of “historical poetry“. When vandals started to destroy statues, many applauded. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called it “politically correct iconoclasm“.
A week before the statues row, people in the UK knelt in the name of George Floyd. It was as if there was a collective claim that Western society as a whole had to repent. It seemed a form of ideological hysteria, not so distant from that of the Inquisition or the Salem Witch Trials: those who knelt were presumably supposed appear as if they were more moral, on the “right side” of justice. There were even British policemen kneeling, as, in the US, Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats knelt to their overlords. Both were acts of irresponsibility and capitulation. A few days later, the British establishment kowtowed to the new Taliban.
What is this macabre ideological game aimed at accomplishing? Not taking down monuments as such, like the statues of Christopher Columbus which have been torn down or beheaded. It is more than that. It is a power-grab to create a cultural revolution, to prevent anyone from saying that cultures are not all the same; to put Europe’s past on trial; to instill perennial remorse into consciences, and to spread intellectual terror to advance multiculturalism.
How many people will refuse to go along with this coerced suppression of history? If many kneel to this new totalitarianism, who will have the courage to stand up for Western history and culture?
Giulio Meotti, Cultural Editor for Il Foglio, is an Italian journalist and author.
In 1972 a biography of Pope Pius XII was published in France entitled Pie XII devant l’Histoire written by Msgr. Georges Roche and Philippe Saint Germain, never translated into Italian [or English]. The authors relate various unpublished statements made very “long ago” – in 1933 – by Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli to two of his friends, Count Enrico Pietro Galeazzi and Msgr. Slozkaz, regarding the apparitions at Fatima and the apostasy of the Catholic Church. It is interesting to note that it was only in 1944 that Sister Lucia Dos Santos wrote down the visions and secrets. For this reason, what Cardinal Pacelli said in 1933 – which is all tragically coming true – leads us to conclude that everything was not revealed to us [by the Holy See’s statement on the Third Secret of Fatima] during the Jubilee Year 2000. We have translated these statements of the future Pius XII – which are truly prophecies – for you here. Read and meditate.
“Let us suppose that communism is one of the most evident instruments of subversion used against the Church and the Traditions of Divine Revelation. Then we will witness the contamination of everything that is spiritual: philosophy, science, law, education, the arts, media, literature, theater, and religion.
I am worried about the confidences given by the Virgin to little Lucia of Fatima. This insistence by the Good Lady on the dangers that threaten the Church is a divine warning against the suicide that would be contained in the altering of the Faith in its liturgy, its theology, and its soul.
I sense all around me that the innovators want to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, throw out all of its ornaments and make it full of a sense of guilt for its historic past. Look, I am convinced that the Church of Peter must rediscover a sense of pride about its past, otherwise it will dig its own grave.
I will fight this battle with all my strength within the Church as well as outside Her, even if the forces of evil one day take advantage of my very person, my actions, or my writings, just as today they attempt to distort the history of the Church. All the human heresies that alter the Word of God are made to seem like they are better than Her.
A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God, that God’s Son is only a symbol, a philosophy just like any other. In the churches, Christians will seek in vain for the red lamp where Jesus waits for them: like the sinful woman weeping before the empty tomb, they will cry out: “Where have they taken him?”
It will be then that there will arise priests from Africa, from Asia, from the Americas – who have been formed in the missionary seminaries – who will speak out and proclaim that the “Bread of Life” is not ordinary bread and the Mother of the God-Man is not a mother just like many others. And they will be torn to pieces for having testified that Christianity is not a religion just like others, because its Head is the Son of God and the [Catholic] Church is His Church.”
June 9, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – There is a small part of an interview conducted by the well-respected American historian and book author, William Thomas Walsh, with the Fatima seer Sister Lucia that might now strike a special note with us, in light of the ongoing disorderly and revolutionary conditions in the U.S.
Sister Lucia of Fatima was one of three children who witnessed apparitions of the Blessed Mother in 1917 in Fatima, and she continued to receive messages from heaven for years afterward. One of the messages pertains to the then-impending Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and the need to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
In 1947, Professor William Thomas Walsh authored a book about Fatima, titled Our Lady of Fatima, at the end of which he recounts in an epilogue an interview he had conducted with Sister Lucia of Fatima the year before.
Speaking with the seer in 1946 about the Blessed Mother’s earlier request that Russia be consecrated by the Pope together with the bishops in the world to Her Immaculate Heart, Sister Lucia told Professor Walsh:
“What Our Lady wants is that the Pope and all the bishops in the world shall consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart on one special day. If this is done, she will convert Russia and there will be peace. If it is not done, the errors of Russia will spread through every country in the world.”SUBSCRIBEto LifeSite’s daily headlinesSUBSCRIBEU.S. Canada World Catholic
“Does this mean,” Walsh then asked, “in your opinion, that every country, without exception, will be overcome by Communism?” And Sister Lucia answered: “Yes.”
As the translator of this interview, Father Manuel Rocha, was later to reveal, Walsh then asked explicitly about the United States of America, adding: “and does that mean the United States of America, too?” Whereupon Sister Lucia responded once more time with “yes.”
That is to say, the seer of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, which have been approved by the Catholic Church, predicted that the United States, under certain conditions, would also become Communist. The quotes can also be found here.
This answer might have sounded somewhat unrealistic in 1946, just after the end of the Second World War and the beginning of the Cold War. However, today, in light of these revolutionary riots that seem to change America in a very deep way, they might strike an even stronger tone.
Black Lives Matter appears to be the organization that is at the center of the revolt against the established structures in the U.S., for the defunding of police and a radical change of society. Their influence is being proven by the fact that Washington D.C. just named a square next to St. John’s Church that had been put to fire by some of the protesters Black Lives Matter Plaza.
Looking into the official agenda of Black Lives Matter, one can easily detect the Marxist anti-family and LGBT ideology of this movement that has been funded by those outside the black community, such as the globalist Soros:
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”
Another aggressive element of the current violent protests which has been called out by President Trump himself is the Antifa movement. As recently has been pointed out, the symbol the Antifa movement still uses today – two flags placed on top of each other – goes back to the founding of the Antifaschistische Aktion (Anti-fascist Action) in the 1930s by German Communists. And even the more recent successors of this original movement were organized in the 1970s by the German Maoist Communist League (Kommunistischer Bund). Thus, also this strain of the current violent and aggressive protests in the United States are of Communist inspiration. They have in common an anarchistic view against state authority and especially against the police.
As Fox News’ Tucker Carlson recently commented on this new political development that aims at defunding the police departments yet at the same time suppresses messages from citizens who announce they will defend themselves with their own weapons: “This is a move toward authoritarian social control.” “They create the chaos,” he stated on 8 June, “you are not allowed to defend yourself.”
The future of the left as Tucker Carlson sees is that only those will have weapons “who are on their team, and that is exactly what ‘defund the police’ really means,” that is to say: “partisan law enforcement.” Carlson also described in his show the “vicious crackdown on free speech and free thought” that has been taking place in the last couples of days. The new rule is: “You are not allowed to question Black Lives Matter in any way,” and this is being enforced by social media giants like Facebook and others. After adding that “we have never lived in an environment like this,” the journalist added that many people get the message and follow suit. “And the weak ones are very quick to join in, just like the little Red Guards they have always been underneath of it all,” he explained.
In light of techniques of public humiliation of those with different opinions or positions – here an example of a public humiliation of the mayor of Minneapolis when he declined to promise to disband the Police Department – one feels also reminded of the techniques of earlier Communist revolutions that forced those of other views into submission.
Also in light of the outrageous acts of lootings and riots which have terrorized millions of Americans over the course of the last two weeks, we can surely say that we are getting closer to at least a Communist atmosphere in America. We more and more feel reminded of an atmosphere similar to Eastern communist countries in Europe whose citizens had to support the thesis of the proletariat’s enduring suffering and moral superiority, at the end of which one had to be ashamed of one’s own background and heritage if one was not of proletarian background. Purges followed, to include the removal of “counter-revolutionary statues” and other items of tradition and heritage. The damage to millions of lives worldwide is well-known.
In all of these turmoils, a weakened Christianity is becoming further eroded, as we can now witness it with our own eyes, where an archbishop rebukes the U.S. President for visiting a Catholic shrine and a priest hopes that George Floyd intercedes for us already from heaven, independently of his own moral life here on earth.
We might also remember here Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s new open letter to President Donald Trump, in which he writes: “We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.”
In light of Archbishop Viganò’s words on the Masonic rule, let us remember here a historic 1918 letter – written not long after the 1917 apparitions in Fatima – in which the Catholic Church is being warned by the German Emperor Willhelm II of the impending Bolshevic takeover as part of a Freemasonic plan to establish a “world republic.” This letter is authentic and has been found in the Secret Vatican Archives.
The message of the Emperor was “that, according to news that came to him yesterday, the [Freemasonic] Grand Orient has just decided first to depose all Sovereigns – first of all him, the Emperor – then to destroy (?) the Cathol.[olic] Church, to imprison the pope, etc and, finally, to establish on the ruins of the former bourgeois society a world republic under the leadership of American Big Capital. The German Freemasons are purportedly loyal to the [German] Emperor (which is to be doubted!) and they informed him about it. Also England wants to preserve the current bourgeois order. France and America, however, are said to be under the full influence of the Grand Orient [Freemasonic Lodge]. Bolshevism is said to be the external tool to establish the desired conditions. In the face of such a great danger which threatens in addition to the Monarchy, also the Catholic Church; it is thus important that the German episcopacy be informed and that also the pope be warned.”
This letter is more than one hundred years old. Our readers can judge for themselves whether there can be seen parallels to our current situation.
May we be aware of these insidious beginnings and resist them as long as we still can. But not only with practical means such as articles and items of news; most importantly, this needs to be done with spiritual means. We need to pray the Holy Rosary, do the devotions to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as asked from us by heaven, and, finally, we need to insist that the full, explicit, and correct Consecration of Russia be done, as Cardinal Raymond Burke and the Italian historian Professor Roberto de Mattei have, just recently, called for again.
The evidence is building that Americans are turning away from their long cherished love for democracy, freedom and capitalism in an astonishing fashion.
For example, in a 2017 Gallup survey, Millennials (18 – 29 year olds) had almost equally positive views of both capitalism and socialism (57% – 55%, respectively).
In a stunning 2017 You-Gov survey, 37% of America said they preferred socialism or even communism over capitalism.
And, believe it or not, a World Values Survey found that 24% of young Americans think that democracy is a “bad” or “very bad” way of running the country.
It appears that more and more Americans want a “planned” rather than free economy, an abolition of the differences between business owners and workers and ultimately an end to private property – all distinctives of a socialist state.
Socialism envisions a future perfect condition for man – one achieved through man’s own efforts – a sort of societal pulling oneself up by one’s own bootstraps.
Non-Christians find this concept easy to embrace. If man is good, they reason, then why shouldn’t he be perfectible and, if perfectible, why not through human exertion?
Christians, on the other hand, believe in original sin, the fallenness of man, and know that the only perfect state for humankind will come under the direct governance of Jesus Christ after his return.
Until then, Christians know that the poor will always be with us and that man is not God and is incapable of engineering his own utopia.
Socialisms underlying basic assumption of man’s perfectibility through human engineered social means leads to one of its central tenants; a planned economy.
Thinking about this, it is obvious that a planned economy must needs a planner(s). Along with planning comes control (the plan is no good if people are allowed to go off plan) and control is the more effective the more it is centralized.
It becomes easy to understand why socialized countries usually end up being governed by all-powerful tyrants.
Contrast the Christian way where God favors each man with maximum liberty, able to choose for himself either a blessed or cursed future.
The God of the bible frowns upon the more centralized governmental systems, instead preferring direct relationship with each individual person – a feat only He can do.
God does not need intermediate human constructed social artifices to communicate with every human on the planet. He can do it directly, the Holy Spirit not being constrained.
However, Satan can only relate to one person at a time.
Not possessing the Godly attributes of omnipresence, omnipotence and omniscience, he must rely on his devilish minions, who are likewise limited.
Hence, he is forever furthering the cause of centralized human power so as to be able to influence the more of humanity with his finite number of devils.
In other words, if control is cemented in a limited number of people, he can the more thoroughly corrupt them with his likewise limited number of underlings. But, they would be vastly less effective in their evil work where power is dissipated and they have to deal with decision makers who are free and numerous (a democracy).
This is one reason why Christianity has traditionally viewed government as the preserver of freedom, order and justice under the law-word of God, while socialists think government is a revolutionary tool to be used by those who would be gods, to fix creation because the Creator didn’t do right the first time.
The second socialist distinctive, the adolescent dream of extinguishing differences of class, wealth, position, etc., reeks of hypocrisy.
Why? Because its planned and controlled economy requires planners and controllers who, by necessity, possess more power than any capitalist business owner could ever dream of possessing.
While pretending to the levelling of all peoples, socialism retains its planners carrying out the will of its masters proving that it is more a game about power than it is about egalitarianism.
And, of course, the Bible never advocates for egalitarianism. As far back as the 10 Commandments, it assumes inequality and finds no sin in its existence. The only sin being in our hearts as we covet what we don’t have.
The fact that we are capable of coveting is de facto Biblical acknowledgement that we aren’t equal.
Socialism, then, can be viewed as the antithesis of Christianity in that it institutionalizes envy in its attempt to level everyone to the same conditions.
God, anti-egalitarian that He is, separates the sheep from the goats, sending some to heaven and some to hell – no levelling here.
Actually, the same can be noticed about socialisms third aspect, the abolition of private property.
When nationalization of property occurs it is only the transfer of rights of ownership from many individuals to one government.
The prerogatives of ownership still exist, only now they will be exercised by a different class of people, those who possess governmental power.
It is somewhat difficult to conjure up a reason to believe why these people who happen to work for government will be better managers of property than the former free (now dependent) owners would.
But, there are reasons to believe that stewardship by design usually results in an outcome less benign.
A private property owner has his own interest at stake. Any bad decision will impact his own well-being negatively.
He is highly incentivized to make constructive beneficial choices.
Conversely, a bureaucrat is not harmed (even if society is) by his bad decisions. He has no personal stake and suffers no personal ramifications for mistakes.
This is why we see so many colossal public policy mistakes (such as the vast western fires on ill-managed public lands and massive pollution events like the recent EPA Animas River spill fiasco in Colorado, etc.)
There is no personal skin in the game for government workers, their pie-in-the-sky schemes are implemented by fiat and when they fail, all of us have to pay, but not them.
The Biblical take on private property is one that takes seriously individual & familial ownership, “The prince shall not take from the people’s inheritance, thrusting them out of their possession…”
In fact, private ownership of property is so important in God’s economy that He instructed the Israelites in the laws of Jubilee, mandating the return of any alienated property to its original owner (or family) every 50 years.
And, in the case of Naboth’s vineyard, God’s displeasure with governmental confiscation of private property is made abundantly clear.
Private property is the clear Biblical source for man’s liberty under God to pursue the stewardship mandate. Without its possession, man is left to play the slave under the mastery of the all-powerful state.
Socialists must suffer from some adolescent psychological malady to be able to continue to lust after an imaginary perfect world even when all logical evidence points to mans’ inability to establish heaven on earth.
How can they believe that man is good and not fallen after Nazism, 100 or more million deaths – by design – from Communism, untold suffering and murder directly attributable to Maoism – all off-shoots in varying flavors of socialism and, all in the last century?
How can they be so stupid, arrogant and obstinate to believe socialism can deliver the goods vis-à-vis capitalism and republicanism given the historical record?
Their ability to maintain their amazing faith in their own ability to re-organize the world in a better way even when the evidence and reason declares that all such efforts have and will miserably fail, borders on the maniacal.
The Christians duty is to resist these professed prophets of social perfection and defend the faith, its doctrines and the necessary corollaries and all that they mean for man’s civil structures – educational, cultural, social, economic and governmental.
