Dominant, top-down evil is changing from bureaucratic-media/ totalitarian enforcement of value-inversion; towards nihilistic and spiteful destruction of God's creation (i.e. turning what I have called Ahrimanic to Sorathic).

This means there will be a reduction in the capacity of the evil Establishment to enforce ...

There is a kind of bemused delirium evident among pro-lifers.

Suddenly! (they believe) Evil Santa has given them exactly what they have been asking-for for Christmas, over the past 50 years.

And therefore, they infer, Evil Santa must have secretly repented and become good.

Thus, since Evil Santa is so powerful, ...

Roe v. Wade was never the Satanic ideal. The ideal was never for abortion to be legalized by judicial fiat, without the people's consent. Much more effective, in terms of damnation, would be a public referendum on the matter, implicating as many people as possible -- not only those who commit ...

Last Thursday, June 16, I referenced Q for the sake of a Duke of Earl joke and posted an image of one of the last Q drops.

The drop I used in my Duke of Earl post was immediately followed up with this one, which associated "Nothing can stop [the Duke of Earl]" with the question, "Shall we play a ...

Many on the Christian right, especially in America, are celebrating the overturning of Roe v Wade and I understand why. But I would urge caution and for two reasons. Firstly, turning back the clock on this issue to the 1970s is fairly meaningless as long as the sexual revolution is still in full swing which it is. ...

Back in November of last year, I wrote a post in which I outlined the peck mandate that Austria planned to enforce at the beginning of this year. The mandate went into effect in February and was suspended a month later in March. The suspension was extended in May.

My interpretation of present global events (for what it's worth) is that we are seeing further confirmation that Evil Plan A for a global system of totalitarian value-inversion is collapsing.

Plan A reached its peak of success in early-mid 2020 (before the antiracist, pro-chaotic, turn of that summer) - and Plan A ...

I was brought-up on the idea that power corrupts; and that absolute power corrupts absolutely (paraphrasing historian Lord Acton).

This seemed like the lesson of history - for example the Claudius novels by Robert Graves is largely a litany of exactly such corruption, which I read when I was thirteen, or the ...

Since the deaths of Geoffrey Ashe and then Gareth Knight earlier this year - I am scratching my head over who I should now regard as the Greatest Living Englishman?

To qualify, a person (man or woman) would need to be broadly-within the Romantic Christian ideal - and his work should be 'about' England - or, more ...

To be capable of becoming a Christian one must be capable of love. That's the basic necessity - and it seems most (but maybe not all) people are capable of love.

This is necessary because Heaven is a place of love - Heaven is a family; and it is love that gives Heaven cohesion and direction.

But Christian love is ...

It is interesting that there are plenty of mass media, indeed Hellmouth-Hollywood, products that depict the spiritual war of this world - in terms of angels and demons, and including what might be termed 'spiritual technologies' such as exorcism.

Western civilisation is dying. At its peak it scaled great heights but it has fallen a long way down since then because of its denial of spirit. Pitifully, most people think of this as an advance and a liberation from superstition because the denial of spirit freed us to explore and exploit the material world to a ...
