Response to ‘Penny Dreadful’ Finale

A Response to the Response…

Ok, didn’t even touch on the supposed return to God through a murder and all but technical suicide! This story’s end exemplifies just the sort of spineless capitulation to “evil” that embodies paganism, not Christianity. Christianity may have it’s share of martyrs, but these were not vainful or cowardly deaths… they weren’t fleeing from the fight through suicide!

Look at the Rus under the [Yellow] Horde… for two hundred years the king of Moscow owed his crown to the sanction of the Khan. When the Khan beckoned, the King of the Rus rode hundreds even thousands of miles to wait around amidst his warriors and tents for the Khan to deign to see him. And at the merest sign of slight, the Khan might ride with his horde of warriors hundreds, even thousands of miles to raze the kings keep and every settlement along his route. But the Rus King humbled himself to save his people and the Rus held to their church and culture. Evicted from their homes into the winter’s cold they would cut bricks of peat as they dug holes within which to shelter themselves, warming themselves with those smoldering bricks until the Horde finished their murderous sport and returned home. The Christian Rus stood their ground against impossible odds until the short equation of the Mongol life reached its logical and self-destructive end. When such Rus, as there must have been, gave into hopelessness and killed their loved ones and themselves–we do not lionize them for these acts!

This story line was a Pagan’s shallow interpretation of sacrifice plastered over the supposed adoration of the Christian Lord. It is a disgusting slur upon the true values professed through the Christian faith. Meanwhile, shows like Futurama get cancelled as weak-willed executives bend to the shallow impulses of Christ waving camera muggers when reference is made to a “Zombie Jesus.” These are slights of deliberate misinterpretation by granting gravity to the flotsam and jetsam of charlatans rather than honoring what is true and central to Christianity.


A Song For Putin

Russia to the US: If you want a confrontation, ‘you’ll get one everywhere’

A full year after Russia stepped into the Syrian quagmire on behalf of Syrian President Bashar Assad, Moscow has come to rival and challenge the US and NATO in virtually every arena possible.

Here’s a quick glance at what Russia has accomplished just in the last month or so:


Without a doubt, relations between Russia and the West have reached their lowest point since the height of the Cold War.

Retired Russian Lt. Gen. Evgeny Buzhinsky told the BBC that for its part, Russia sees the West as the belligerent party, citing sanctions against Russia as well as barring the Russian Paralympic team from the Rio Olympics for well-documented and state-sponsored doping as Western aggression against Russia.

“Of course there is a reaction. As far as Russia sees it, as Putin sees it, it is full-scale confrontation on all fronts. If you want a confrontation, you’ll get one,” Buzhinsky told the BBC. “But it won’t be a confrontation that doesn’t harm the interests of the United States. You want a confrontation, you’ll get one everywhere.”

How come I end up where I started?
How come I end up where I went wrong?
Won’t take my eyes off the ball again
You reel me out then you cut the string

How come I end up where I started?
How come I end up where I went wrong?
I won’t take my eyes off the ball again
First you reel me out and then you cut the string

You used to be alright
What happened?
Did the cat get your tongue?
Did your string come undone?

One by one
One by one
It comes to us all
It’s as soft as your pillow

You used to be alright
What happened
Et cetera, et cetera
Fads for whatever
Fifteen steps
Then a sheer drop

How come I end up where I started?
How can I end up where I went wrong?
Won’t take my eyes off the ball again
You reel me out and you cut the string

Bush Meets Lauer

Watching this, and I am sure my opinion is marred by my own prejudice, I just get the sense that Bush is the mouthpiece for a cabal with their own agenda. That we, as a nation, are forced into this give and take with a desperate and brutal force, because rather than stepping back and analyzing a situation and gaining the perspective necessary to address much broader issues of cause and effect… we are merely reacting to a bad situation in a moment to moment sort of choreography where we are not calling the the shots, we are not leading the dance.

Meanwhile, the domain where long term and broad planning has been applied is not in the Oval Office, but somewhere out in the private sector amongst actors and industries not directly beholden to the American people, but rather pursuing their own agendas–agendas ultimately driven by a profit motive.

The other thing that strikes me, I just wonder whether this moment of Matt Lauer behaving somewhat like a journalist isn’t somehow responsible for his many stints on camera since dressed as a woman! That is the kind of psychology I think we are witnessing here. I mean, the mentioning of the safety of Matt Lauer’s family and the aggressive gesturing from Bush (1:501:55, 2:06, etc,)–at 2:06 Matt L actually seems to raise his arm in a subtle defensive mode–seems right out of a gangster film. It’s a sign of frustration at having to answer actual questions when working from a script rather than an originator of a policy talking through his own sense of justification.

This is scary stuff. This is people murdered and plunged into misery and perhaps generations of social instability… not to mention the loss of antiquities.

It may seem cold and inappropriate to weigh the loss of antiquities with the loss and misery of human life, but this is the thing… The loss of antiquities is a strike at the very character of a people, their sense of self and history… the justification of the narrative of their own identity. This is something atheists miss in their clumsy ham-fisted attack on the church. If you have the intent to subvert the indigenous societal power structure of authority… something you must first do to steal the resources of a society and reduce their populations to servitude… You must recreate and impose a narrative upon that society which confounds that societies sense of self. By hijacking a societies narrative, you can disrupt the internal dialogue of that society and feed the various factions to eachother through an ever increasing and ever debasing internal conflict.

This makes it easier to impose a power-structure and hierarchy from outside the society merely by feeding and guiding certain elements within it. This is how you plunge an entire society into servitude exposing it to violence, rape, theft and slavery. And something people forget about slavery, it upsets the entire playing field. When one society or set of actors manage to reduce people to servitude, it gives them power and benefit to enact, perpetuate and spread human misery for the purpose of their own benefit.

Whoever has dealings with such power-capabilities lends these power-capabilities legitimacy and at the same time robs themselves in equal measure of their own legitimacy. The thing spreads like a virus reducing everything to it’s level which only finds deeper darker depths till something renders a check on it–such controls do not exist within the structure of the power-capability which wields such power, either the young are fed to the old or the old are fed to the young. North Korea is a perfect example of this.

It is no coincidence that where oil economies dominate, where there is the influence of an external power-structure–that is, those entities bringing oil to western markets or those western markets themselves–internal authority is upset and oppressive regimes are created in that commerce with that external power-capability.

D’you Know What I Mean? / Oasis

“D’You Know What I Mean?”

Step off the train all alone at dawn
Back into the hole where I was born
The sun in the sky never raised an eye to me
The blood on the trax and must be mine
The fool on the hill and I feel fine
Don’t look back cos you know what you might see

Look into the wall of my mind’s eye
I think I know, but I don’t know why
The questions are the answers you might need
Coming in a mess going out in style
I ain’t good-looking but I’m someone’s child
No-one can give me the air that’s mine to breathe

I met my maker
I made him cry
And on my shoulder he asked me why
His people won’t fly through the storm
I said “Listen up man, they don’t even know you’re born”

All my people right here, right now
D’You Know What I Mean?
All my people right here, right now
D’You Know What I Mean?
All my people right here, right now
D’You Know What I Mean?
Yeah, yeah

I don’t really care for what you believe
So open up your fist or you won’t receive
The thoughts and the words of every man you’ll need
Get up off the floor and believe in life
No-one’s ever gonna ever ask you twice
Get on the bus and bring it on home to me
