Why be Anarchist-Monarchist

Monarchist:


Because, by having a (non-political) Monarch we can respect, we are freed to be properly disrespectful towards politicians, while remaining loyal to our country. Without a monarch, loyalty can demand political submission.
Also, the British monarch is like the king on a chessboard. He cannot attack. But by occupying his square he prevents others from doing so – politicians who long for the supremacy that monarchs have, who yearn to be escorted by booted cavalry and greeted with trumpets, and who want us to respect them even when they don’t deserve it. Especially when they don’t deserve it. 
It’s not an accident that most of the longest-lasting free, law-governed countries in the world are constitutional monarchies. Yet we seem keen to throw this advantage away, because we no longer know who we are or how we came to be so free and happy.

Christology versus Prophetology



From Archbishop Cranmer's Blog:


"Now is not the time for knee-jerk journalism stoking anti-Muslim sentiment: the solutions to these societal tensions are to be found in the pursuit of theology; in robust comparative religion; in the fearless pursuit of Christology versus Prophetology. As the Rev’d Dr Gavin Ashenden wrote a few months ago, ‘We need to talk more about Jesus and Mohammed and less about Christianity and Islam‘. The divine mission is to witness to God’s truth, not to denigrate any of those who are made in His image.
And we certainly don’t need to convey to all Muslims that their existence or mere presence is a ‘problem’, for that way lies the validation of hatred, prejudice and faith suppression. If the problem was Jews and their Torah yesterday, and it’s the Muslims and their Qur’an today, why not Christians and their Bible tomorrow? The potential for all people of faith to be cast as outsiders or ‘others’ is ever-present. The ever-enlightened liberal-secular inquisition must forever deal with the ‘problem’ of religion, for we have all been judged and found wanting."

...

Maybe there's no "Muslim problem." Instead, perhaps, it's a "Christendom problem."  An orthodox christian, rather than a protestant, confident in his faith and culture, would not have permitted either the socio-cultural conditions (i.e., multi-culturalism and Western self-flagellation) or policy decisions (i.e., importing large numbers of persons from a culture that has been both competitive and combative with the host country culture for the past 1400 years) .

The Great Lie Of The Left



The great lie of the left is that they are speaking for 'us', meaning the majority, the 'ordinary' person.  The same spin was used by Mussolini, and Trump. When the right say this, they are also pretending.  
The right just pretends in "we" a lot less often.  

The other nonsense of the left now is the old notion that we'd all be better off by taxing the rich. By this they now mean the uber-rich, oligarchs and multinationals.

There are at least 3 flaws in this: 

  1. Already offshore, & will move even more "offshore" if threatened by tax.
  2. The rich are better left alone by the threat of tax, as they were in the past when they felt much more obligated than now to benefit the country personally with endowments, buildings and institutes. They are simply less likely to do this with the state positioning themselves as the benefactors of the people, by taxing these people. People simply feel less obligated to personally help the homeless when the state claims to have relieved our conscience of our surrounding society.
  3. The idea shown of terrorised future of failed states with obscene Oligarchies are actually countries who had statist, socialist regimes (All of the Eastern bloc, Russia, most of Africa, most of Asia, most of South America...). That is not the situation in Europe or the U.S. where Capitalism was not banned. However damage has been done by years of statist measures, producing a class of protectionist oligarchs in its wake.

Because most people in Europe and North America haven't lived in the Eastern bloc, Russia, Africa, Asia, or South America, they don't see the damage done to these societies by past Socialism/Communism.  
They just assume the relative American recent U.S. involvement in some of these places is solely to blame, or if not, it is the legacy the old European Empire.  
The U.S. has undoubtedly been ruthlessly opportunistic; this is because these opportunities were afforded by corrupt regimes and their attendant Oligarchs, enabled by devastation wrought by Marxist regimes*. The Left in Europe don't see this is, don't see that if their anti-capitalism had any fruition whatsoever, it would disable the ability to fund anything for large amounts of people, and also the ability of free speech and any culture of criticism. Meanwhile, they live in a culture where profits are made from books, films, articles, that promote the vast bulk of critical discourse, while they deem any critique of Socialism to be allied with all the evils the world has ever known, and marginalise the relatively few intellectuals with outsider status.

After the war, it was a legitimate position of dissent to deride the western system (although they never derided the enlightenment, which is the most likely culprit for 20thC technological wars and the atom bomb). Now it is the reverse, it is a dissenting position to deride the academy, but there is even less freedom to do so than in 1945, or even 1922). This is because the academies have been shaped by the biased dialogue of complacent deconstructionism.

Besides the hypocrisy that one of the multinationals is Facebook, which the left are addicted to; the other hypocrisy is that a lot of the haute-left use tax avoidance "vehicles" themselves.  With one hand they think of nationalising rail, while on the other, disparaging the nation state as a regressive concept. Why not think about nationalising google or facebook ?

*This is not an apology for colonialism, but it is curious that genocide was comparatively rare during colonisation.
The genocide of the American Indian was done after a war of "independence".
These regimes always excuse themselves by blaming the former colonisers, ignoring the fact that they choose to model themselves almost entirely on the worst aspects of colonial rule wherever possible.

Westminster Bridge, Resignation of the Spirit






I call it murder.  Some might call it an act of terror, others an act of honour against The Great Satan.     
What do you call it ?   Corbyn was an I.R.A. sympathiser, he may of considered their atrocious acts 'the struggle'.  
Anyway the latest news was that the assailant was a 'soldier' of I.S.

Let's not wallow in media atrocity blitzkrieg.  Because if it wasn't media hyped, these acts wouldn't have a mandate to continue.  
Although this is distinctly a negative dialectic; we are still looking at religious behaviour, albeit perverted and on the gnostic end of the spectrum, purity through fire, 
and all that Cathar-sis.

Martyrdom is inspired by the relics of saints.
The appetite for this news encourages a media which, hot
as freshly pressed print - renews, inspires more mad ganja & puritan ideology-fuelled men to commit such obscene acts of 'honour'.  

But one cannot entirely blame the media. Because it is a personal shopper choice to consume films and video games involving ever increasingly high body counts, which then encourages more production of such 'media'.   If some don't seems to have appetite for such filth, and thats maybe down to the happy fact our parents weren't 'bottom feeders'.   The 'buck' has to stop with us individually, using 
our God given freedom of choice, or free will.  The fatalistic or deterministic view is a 'realist' view that what occurs is manifest and thus, destined.

Manifest destiny, that whiggish American-founding myth, escalates violence by accepting it firstly as 
not given, but made, and its why the U.S.A never solves violence in the world, only encourages more of it.  

Unfortunately, the Holy Eastern Orthodox Church also has shadows of fatalism in its concept of complete 
submission and devotion to the will of God.  In that, essentially people surrender their free will in the face of tragedy and communism.  They are all too willing to submit to the blindness of collectivism.  Asiatic Resignation, as Waugh called it. 

The triumph of the west has its locus in Roman Catholicism, not in Lutheran self-will, or Calvinist self reliance, 
which only trusts the self at the expense of everything and everybody else. 

The majestic Roman Church got the balance right: trust in God, but don't trust that you won't slink to evil, 
or that 'evil' is only external, or merely someone else's, or natures flaw.

Spinoza Antichrist





Fichte’s system was the offspring of Kant’s divorce of sensuous from intelligible nature, with the former dictated by necessity, the latter governed by freedom.
​  

This was Fichte and Schelling's method 
of how to separate out the original sin of Calvin's 'total depravity'​ from ergo and place it 
firmly in the bosom of nature, and with nature's interlocutor who, for the philosopher, is woman.​  

Their ideal result was the old Cartesian split, word against flesh.  




Flesh made word; Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings. Always darker, emptier, simpler.

Union Jackass




I'm all for a Holy Roman Empire extending from Ireland to Constantinople, 
just as it did before the fall of the east in 1453.  The trouble is that 
this empire is unholy, foolish, insane, and reactionary.  
For, far from progressive, the union was an attempt to set back the clock to the 
golden days of Charlemagne.
