There’s a great movie called “Meet the Feebles” which is done with Muppet-like puppets. It’s directed by Peter Jackson who did “The Lord of the Rings”. One of the characters in the film is a shit-fly who plays a show business reporter and is often seen buzzing around a toilet and sometimes dining there. This character sums up Rupert Murdoch far more effectively than any other image I can come up with for this muckraker extraordinaire.
I observe a recent trend that wants to publicize Ron Paul’s use of Masonic handshakes and other forms that can indicate that Ron Paul is just another member of the vampire overlords who are presently brutalizing the world in which we live; a stalking horse to some and a vote siphon for those who want to draw support away from ‘legitimate’ candidates.
Who knows? It’s possible that not a single candidate is anything but a tool of these elite bloodsuckers. Maybe they come in all flavors and colors and the game is fixed from the top to the bottom. That makes for a dreary perspective to be sure.
One of the areas in which I have studied all of my life has been the metaphysical and the occult. There are those who say that all things occult are satanic. Actually ‘occult’ implies something that is ‘hidden’ or veiled’. Anyone should know that just because we can’t see something doesn’t mean its evil. Although I have read extensively about occult sciences, occult organizations and occult practices, I have yet to find that Masonry is evil per se. Some Masons may be and some may not.
For me, the good or evil of occult and magical practice is determined by the composition of the individual. I see it the way I see electricity. You can use it to light your house or you can use it in the electrodes that you attach to someone’s genitals. Very often we find that what was formerly known as evil turned out to have great benefit to the human race. Destructive forces have been harnessed to our advantage. Individuals who were considered outlaws for a period of time; who were imprisoned and sometimes killed have later been revealed as exceptional human beings who made a positive impact on the world and the people who live there.
It’s a hard call. How can we ever know the sum of anyone? Even those of us who are mostly good are occasionally bad, or weak... or deceived regardless of good intention.
Rupert Murdoch is a celebrated man. He’s rich and powerful. Many people that might generally be considered good curry his favor. Lots of people are willing to sleep with the devil if it pays the rent. Many people come to terms with evil and give the excuse that it makes it possible for them to do good. You’ve heard the term, “necessary evil” I am sure.
I think I can state unequivocally that Rupert Murdoch is as evil as anyone alive. He spreads more lies across the planet on a daily basis than any other person here. He routinely assaults human dignity and panders to the lowest common denominator in everything he does. He prints every new lie about the conditions that cause war, bloodshed and suffering around the world. He originates lies. There are very few people anywhere who do as much harm to harmony and humanity as Rupert Murdoch.
I don’t have the space to list more than a small portion of the awful things he does. They run the gamut from promoting murder to degrading women and he lowers the bar every single day. He digs deeper with every effort he makes into the bottomless pit to limbo a little further under the bar.
Here is a man who wallows in every profane thing like a dog rubs itself in a roadside carcass and it is perfume to him in the same manner. I can well imagine him dancing under a black moon in the woven skin of murdered children and howling with joy. It takes no great leap of the imagination.
That Rupert Murdoch is a psychopath and definitively evil is beyond debate. That he dislikes Ron Paul does not make Ron Paul good. But what are we to do when confronted with the need to make decisions? Are we to assume that everyone is evil now and there really is no exit? That way lies madness and despair.
I have to measure each candidate against every other just as do you. In most people’s cases they pick a candidate that purports to represent what they prefer. Most people want someone who says the things they want to hear. They want them to have the same enemies and the same opinions. What is right for some is not right for others and so you have what we have.
Huckabee is a smooth customer. He’s also a proven hypocrite and the sort of fundamentalist that would have burned Galileo. Most of the rest are American Idol contestants; they just want to win and get a record deal. They want to fly on Air Force One. No leader can be considered a good leader who does not take into consideration the greatest good for the greatest number of people. That has to be the standard and whoever comes closest to that is the one I prefer.
I do not believe that Ron Paul lies. He appears to be someone sent by providence for the greater benefit of us all. This is how he appears and that is the problem given that nothing is what it appears. But I look at where he’s been and what he’s done and when I compare that to everyone else it’s a no-brainer. He is absolutely the right man for the right job at the right time. Furthermore, everyone that I know to be lying is against him. Yes, you can say that this is another clever effort on the part of those who would enslave us. You could say that even if he is what he seems to be they’ll get to him later on. You can surely imagine that they will try to kill him if they feel they have to.
Should I just crawl into bed and pull the covers over my head now? Should I just give up because there’s nothing we can do; because we’re all screwed anyway so... bring it on? What am I to do? What are you to do? Should we survive by mimicking the movements of the bodysnatchers?
Ron Paul’s support is enormous. It is far greater than it appears and it covers every spectrum of society in America. All of this has come about while he has been ignored and slandered by the media. Rupert Murdoch’s influence is enormous and yet he can’t change people’s minds about Ron Paul no matter what he does or does not do.
I can’t honestly tell you that Ron Paul is everything we want to believe he is. Sometimes you have to go with your gut. He reminds me of Cindy Sheehan in a lot of ways; an ordinary soul made extraordinary by possessing the courage and conviction so desperately needed by us all. His position on the Federal Reserve is the biggest evidence to me that he is not evil. This is the physical cornerstone of those who visit the greatest harm upon us. His intention to change this situation puts him on the side of the angels.
His position on Israel is spot on. His position on the IRS and so many other things is exactly what it should be. He’s a man of superior common sense. Maybe the Easter Bunny is going to turn into a vampire. I don’t know. Maybe we are all condemned to slog on through the darkness of these times without hope- but I cannot accept that. I KNOW that the light is shining and that I must strive for the light. Even if I cannot see the light I must strive toward where I know it to be. If I am knocked down a thousand times I must get up a thousand and one. If I am deceived I must change course and shake off my error with a renewed conviction, hope and determination.
Ron Paul may not be the answer. That isn’t going to stop any of us who will not be satisfied with anything but a better world, even if it never lives anywhere but in our aspirations and dreams. For the moment he’s a better star to sail by. Even if he may prove false, so much of what he says rings true.
There is an enormous discontent percolating beneath the surface of the culture. It's volatile and vast. The robotheads dutifully repeat what they are told but meanwhile there's the kind of rebellion you get from people appearing to go along with the program who are no longer going to go along with the program.
This is going to come head to head with the resident Jacobins presently showing the world their shiny red asses from beneath the bloody shadow of Madame Le Guillotine. They've been having their way for awhile and it's all been good and profitable.
Whatever may come of Ron Paul he has certainly united the most disparate collection of Americans that I have ever seen. He may be no more than a reminder of what has been lost but it will be felt all the more keenly for his having brought it to our attention.
Time to bring out The Monkey Wrench Gang if all else fails. Revolt is going on at all levels; witness the recent collaboration between the military and the NIE.You never know when too much finally gets to be too much. You only notice when the dam breaks; good reason not to live below the dam or in the skyboxes at the top of it.
