I know that you are referring to universal freedom. I have gathered as much from paying attention to your posts. You have a good heart. Remember what
The Book of The Law has to say about those who refuse to keep up? "The Slaves Shall Serve". I feel for folks but it is not my responsibility to make
sure they are on time for the train.
Crowley did not really have any viable, worked out political philosophy. Nevertheless, to restate, political Anarchists are all Thelemites by default,
since their moral philosophy is one of universal human freedom; similarly with many Socialists, humanists, atheists, feminists, gay rights actvists,
and so forth; in fact Thelema is probably the prevailing moral philosophy of the modern Europeans.
However, against us we have the threat of the Christian Neofascists and militant Muslims, both of whom are radically opposed to universal human
freedom; and further both of whom embrace entirely militant and apocalyptic ideologies with genocidal war gods, and thus both groups of religious
fanatics are likely to require a militant response in the future.
One could hypothetically argue that the Spanish Anarchists and the Trotskyists were wrong to miitantly wage war against the Christian Fascists in
Spain, but this would be rather silly, since the Spanish Catholics were entirely militant.
Slaves and Masters.
Further, in the context of Christianity, since most of the religious propagandists here are Christian I believe that it is useful to identify
essentially two types of Biblical fanatics; there are the slaves and the masters.
The slaves I believe are in their hundreds of millions in the present world, and scattered throughout the centuries of past Christian history, and
these were and are the victims of religious hypnosis and indoctrination; many of them are barely literate and barely educated, and been subjected to a
lifetime of religious propaganda; psychologically we could compare them to a child who was raised in a Nazi orphanage and in the HItler youth movement
and who genuinely believed that Hitler was the benevolent Saviour of humankind
The Christian "Masters" on the other hand are the hypnotists, indoctrinators and propagandists, and many of the practicioners of this vile Craft exist
on Internet forums such as this one, and they fill the sky with their diabolical ramblings and delusions. Not all of these persons are professional
hypnotists of the multi-billion dollar Jesus business; some merely utilise the techniques of Christian hypnosis entirely for the purpose of attempting
to practice psychological domination; to claim some kind of "spiritual" superority or mastery over others; many of these devils are literate, educated
persons, and the definition of a human hating, tyrannical, genocidal Biblical war god is as clear to them as it is to any literate person, but they
have simply chosen to give their souls over to such a phantom and to serve him.
If have discussed such matters at length in my essay "The Dangers of Religious Hypnosis and Indoctrination: The genocidal faiths of Christianity
," on the "Conpiracies in Religion" subforum and www.abovetopsecret.com...
and need not elaborate on this
matter here, as I would only be repeating myself.
Triumph of the Will
The latter type of Christian (the hypnotists, as opposed to the hypnotised) is usually, in my opinion, totally beyond salvation and is eternally
damned, and has placed a curse on themselves that none but they can lift; however I consider myelf to have a moral responsibility to expose and deny
their ignorance and malevolence for the sake of the enslaved and for the sake of those who have the potential to be awakened from the effects of
religious hypnosis and indictrination, or for the sake of who might succumb to the evil and ignorance of the Christian propagandists.
As Guevara argued, revolution does not happen like an apple falling from a tree; one has to make the apple fall; the conditions for revolution do just
appear miraculously; one has to create such conditions. If a New Heaven and New Earth are to be created, it can ony be as a triumph of human will;
there will be no miracles.
And there is not one iota of anything in the 'universe' that gives one rat's ass whether you make the train or not. And I mean you. Or me, or
anyone. There is no help here
Well with regards to "anything" in the universe, clearly "things (i.e., inanimate objects)" are not quite the same as intelligent consciousnesses; the
tree probably does not care very much if there there is an earthquake, but there may well be human beings with the power to cause the earthquake which
affects the lives of any human beings.
With regards to an omnipotent, interventionary being who can read the thoughts of 7 billion people every second, this would seem to be a preposterous
idea and more like the idea of a supercomputer. However there clearly are many human beings who care very much about the liberation and awakening
(education) of other human beings and for human progress. With regards to both malevolent and benevolent itelligences in other realms of our universe,
this can neither be proven or disproven emprically, but needless to say, the existence of such intelligences was certainly a position taken by Crowley
and also by myself, for various reasons, which are not ultimately reasons, but rather interpretations of subjective experiences.
Revolution in all the World.
And yes I am using my own personal definition. Just like you or anyone else. I don't want to be a "Center of Pestilence'. Do you?
Unfortunately the tyrannical nature of some human beings, and the tyrannical nature of the world's great religions and their myriads of laws,
necessitates the abandonment of pacifism. Universal human freedom, which in the past was often only an "ideal" has begun to become partially
manifested in reality, but it has been no miraculous happening; it as been the result of a dialectical struggle between the will of the Conservatives
(to conserve the values of the past) and the armies of radicals, progressives, reformers and revolutionaries. This struggle will continue and must
continue against the very "Centres of Pestilence" themselves, who unortunately are all too often, as totally miltant and genocidal as their vile war
Revolutionary Propaganda is the first stage of Revolutionary War. Words are weapons; prophecies awaiting fulfillment.
