“There has never been a more revolutionary ideology or way of life or belief system or religion on this planet than Judaism. In its heart,
Judaism is the absolute denial of any kind of man-made restrictions and constrictions on human consciousness, on human development, on human value.
And it is therefore very frightening to all elites. So it makes sense then that the elites would want people to, instead of embracing this
revolutionary - this subversive - way of thinking, they want you to believe that it's evil.”
I'm afraid this thread, if it gets any attention at all, will be controversial and make me the target of some aggression, but I think it's a risk
worth taking if anyone here will take it to heart. I am not however comfortable about drawing negative attention to the source of this information, I
do not wish her to be the victim of any more hate than she already is. So I'm not linking her youtube video here directly. It's also quite long. I
will try to sum-up what she says instead, and I'll refer to her as DD.
In Leviticus, it says “You should not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you should love your fellow as
yourself, I am God.”
This is the Golden Rule
in many religions and philosophies.
DD reads this in Hebrew and translates it herself to also mean “Do not rise up against your people, above them, to try to dominate them, that is
torture.” She came to this conclusion using the traditional alpha-numeric Gematria
stuff that I
don't really understand, because I'm not Jewish and I don't know Hebrew.
She goes on to explain Chapter 1 Section 8 of Samuel... I'm going to sum-up my understanding of what she says...
It was the time of the Judges, about a 400 year period with Judges rather than Kings. The judges were not like judges we have today. Jewish
communities were small and intimate, where everyone knew one another and their families for generations. Judges were highly respected elders, they
were people who were asked to judge, because the community loved and respected them and knew they loved and respected the community. Samuel's sons
were judges, but they walked not in his ways. They took bribes and perverted justice. The elders gathered and went to Samuel and told him to “make
us a King to judge us like all the nations”.
As long as the judges were walking in the way of God, they were honest, many became prophets, the people of Israel didn't ask for government. It
wasn't until judges began to disappoint the people, they asked for a King. It displeased Samuel and he prayed. He was told to listen to the voice of
the people. God told him: “They have not rejected you, but they have rejected me, that I should not be King over them.”
God told Samuel to give the people this warning:
“This will be the manner of the King who will reign over you. He will take your sons and appoint them unto him for his chariots and to be horsemen,
and they shall run before his chariots. He will appoint them unto him for captains of thousands, and captains of fifties, and to plow his ground, and
to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war and the instruments of his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers, to be cooks
and to be bakers. And he will take your fields, your vineyards, your olive yards, even the best of them, and give them unto his servants. And he will
take the tenth of your seed and of your vineyards and give to his officers and his servants. And he will take your menservants and your maidservants,
and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to work. And he will take the tenth of your flock and ye shall be his servants. And you'll
cry out in that day, because of your King who you shall have chosen, and the Lord will not answer you that day.”
The people insisted on having a King. They wanted to be like the rest of the nations. And so, they were.
DD briefly mentions Kings 2 Chapter 4 (The Miracles of Elisha), where the prophet 'miraculously' feeds 100 men with a knapsack of bread and grain.
While everyone doubted there would be enough, there was enough and more leftover. The same thing, she says, happens when we have a large communal
meal, "our cup runneth over" so to speak, the meal is blessed. Perhaps the 'blessing' is that when we share we all contribute and have more to
Joseph Flavius also wrote about the Essenes
: “These are despisers of riches, nor is there anyone to
be found among them who hath more than another, for it is a law among them that those who come to them must let what they have be in common to the
whole order, insomuch that among them all there is no appearance of poverty or excess of riches, but everyone's possessions are intermingled with
every other's possession.” DD says that archaeological evidence at Qumran supports the claim that the people lived communally. Apparently that was
the assertion made by Roland de Vaux.
DD stresses the idea that "Love your neighbor as yourself" is central to Judaism. It is the comprehensive idea of Torah summed-up in a single
In Chapter 5 Teaching 10 of Ethics of the
in the Talmud, it is said:
There are four types of people:
One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is mine" is a boor.
One who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is yours" -- this is a median characteristic; others say that this is the character of a
One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is yours" is a chassid (pious person).
And one who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is mine" is wicked.
So, the Jewish image of a perfect society (or atleast a healthy one) is one in which every person is a "pious" person, according to the above text.
DD says this is NOT the same as "collectivism", which nullifies the individual. You cannot "love your fellow as yourself" if you have no self.
Personhood is necessary to everyone in the community, because they will have nothing to contribute if they do not have love for self to extend to
DD quotes Maimonides/Rambam
as having said: “The only difference between this world and the world
to come is that in the world to come there won't be any subservience to rulers.” This, she says, is why the rulers of today want people to think
Talmud is wicked or evil.
“It's not. It's a book of anarcho-communism”, She says. “They don't want you to know about these egalitarian principles that are based on
In the 18th century, Rabbi Hillel Rivlin, who was a disciple and grand-nephew (DD says) of Vilna Gaon, or "the genius from Vilna", wrote something
called "Voice of the Turtle Dove". He said that the reference in Deuteronomy about not having "unequal measures" in your houses actually refers to
economic inequality. He said the "messianic age" cannot come while there is economic inequality.
DD says: “This is very very scary for the elite who are into occultism and that is why they work very very hard to keep the inequality. Not only
because they want their own positions of power, which is a big incentive, but because they want to hold back the messianic age.”
“All Jewish mystics, without exception, from the time of the prophets, were all political radicals.[...] There are no secrets revealed in Torah
ever ever ever that don't teach you more about how the world is built on justice and is guided in justice and is sustained by justice and how justice
must continually increase in the world. There is no other Jewish mysticism.[...] Jewish mysticism is clean politics, the building of societies based
Last, she mentions a more recent revolutionary Jew named Rabbi Ashlag, who wrote something called "Arriving at Communism by way of Kabbalah".
The Kabbalah, she says, is all about acting in justice with others, because the only thing that is holy and sacred is our inter-relationships, ie
DD is a Sephardi Jewish woman living in Israel. She's somewhat a mystic, I suppose, and a bit of a conspiracy theorist herself in that she believes
Judaism has been twisted over the centuries and Jews have been/are being manipulated. She also says Israel is like one big concentration camp (in
I just thought her perspective might be interesting to some ATSers, while of course others will have a knee-jerk reaction to it either because of
Judaism or Communism.
