The Jerusalem Syndrome

CS Lewis said he would give everything he had if the doctrine of Hell were taken out of Christianity. But, as he admitted, the Doctrine of Hell is there. Jesus himself said, in the Parable of the Wedding Guest, that most people would go to Hell, and not for any serious sin.

Most people end up in Hell, according to that Parable, because they were invited to Heaven, in the Parable a wedding, and they have worn the wrong clothes, which could only mean the wrong doctrine.

Lewis HATED that.

But the very term “Salvation” means Hell. You seek salvation FROM, not TO.

So why love God?

St. Augustine and Calvinists who believe in Predestination are wildly thankful to God for choosing THEM for Salvation from the Eternal Fire. Their point is that while God is viciously unforgiving to most, he chooses not to damn EVERYBODY.

This makes a lot of sense to a lot of people.

In fact, when a terrorist who holds people captive shows the tiniest bit of mercy, the captive tends to fall in love with him. Like God, he has no reason whatsoever not to torture you anymore, so your gratitude is for his showing any mercy at all when his whole reason for being there is to do all the harm he can.

This reaction to terrorists and torturers was discovered a generation ago.

CS Lewis recognized it and HATED it.

It is called The Stockholm Syndrome.

Outside of theology, that is.



Merry Christmas!

I say that because that greeting is sort of semi-politically incorrect.

Happy Holiday is inclusive, Merry Christmas is exclusive. So those who use the latter are excluded.

It is generally known that the Emperor Constantine who legalized Christianity and called the Council of Nicaea was a Mithraian. It is assumed he was baptized on his death bed.

It is generally known that Saturday was well known to be the Sabbath. But under Constantine Christians adopted Sunday as the Sabbath.

Sunday was the Holy Day of Mithras.

Christmas was the birthday of Mithras!

These two facts have always been mentioned and instantly avoided.

If Constantine had originally been a Moslem, and made the Sabbath a Friday you would instantly have some questions about that. But I have never heard anybody discuss WHY the Church adopted Mithras’ holy day and Mithras’ birthday.

Mithraism came from Zoroastrianism. In the Gospel, the Magi, then well known as the priests of the largest religion known by Romans, accept Christ as the Savior at his birth, whereas the Jews certainly did not.

I am fascinated by this precisely because my specialty is not theology, but politics.

There were a huge number of Mithraians at the time of the Council of Nice. They were concentrated in the military forces.

No one goes to pieces when one mentions that Christianity replaced each god with a saint to pray to. A god for each purpose was smoothly replaced by a saint for each purpose. It was simply a matter of what Paul said, “All things to all men.”

But Pauline politics in spreading Christianity did not start or end with saints replacing gods.

I cannot understand why other people who are fascinated by history and politics do not have the same itch to know the process in detail by which these compromises were made. Given the loud and sometimes bloody fights over the Divinity of Jesus was God and other doctrines, I kind of doubt somebody just walked in and said, “Hey, gang, I have an idea!”

“Let’s change all the Holy Days and invite the Mithraians to join us!”

It is hard to believe that people who claim to be historians or political scientists just leave such questions unasked.

Christmas is a Public Secret.



It’s a Giant!

Far more Ancient Heroes were killed by mosquitoes than by dragons.

But you will never hear a tale about a Hero battling a mosquito.

We all know why. Since we all know why, someone who is not a Mantra Thinker will chuckle at the idea, then proceed on to something more Profound. But Mantra Thinking is obsession with analyzing “what we all know.”

Thinking about “what we all know” almost always leads to some real insight.

For example, no membership organization simply points out that the other side is just plain silly. This is for exactly the same reason that no legend has a Great Hero fighting one of the most dangerous animals man has ever faced, the mosquito.

And this lack of legends of Heroes fighting mosquitoes is also the reason malaria, yellow fever and all those other diseases were never tracked by Classical Medicine. Great Doctors of Medicine still bled patients and talked of Classical Theories of Humor Balance. They would never look down to the mosquitoes and the flies and the fleas that brought Plague.

Even regular people called malaria “bad air,” and closed their shutters to harmful fresh air in the night, “night air.” Fleas that brought the Plague were on rats. The first response to the Plague was to kill all the cats.

In order to convert to modern medicine, we had to recognize how STUPID the old medicine was. There could be no compromise: You could either show respect for Galen and Latin and Greek, or you could declare that Latin was no substitute, AT ALL, for washing your hands.

Respectable conservatism thrives by ignoring the mosquitoes. All our enemies are Geniuses and Dragons.

If your village has malaria or yellow fever, it is from mosquitoes, which means there is stagnant water within half a mile of you. BUGSERS go after the stagnant water.

The big outfits all fight dragons. Conservatives counter the Great Intellectuals of the Left, pro-whites go after Giant Conspiracies.

We develop memes about the stagnant water.

Mantra Thinking is the Genius of Simplicity.



Exercise Your BUGS Skills

One of the things you always saw in Stormfront, and that you do not see in BUGS, was the phrase “somebody ought to…”

BUGSERS must DO things. We have been trained in getting a few words in here and a concept out there. A BUGSER today would laugh his hind parts off if he saw the endless statements that Lord Nelson and I used to deal with, where some outraged Stormfront commenter would denounce everybody for not marching out openly and bringing the whole System down.

The Stormfronters always did this, of course, under a pseudonym.

But absolutely no one at SF saw the humor of this.

A BUGSER not only knows not to theorize about how something “should be done,” he does it himself. And while SFers would not even talk about anything less than Total Revolution on Der Tag, we report the critical tiny movements of that huge rock that is crushing the life out of our race.

Vanishingly few of the old shouters at Stormfront would even understand the things we report to each other.

You do this kind of thinking so naturally now it would be easy for you to forget what a lesson it is, and why you should recognize it. One example is my unique notice of the end of starvation in this horrible White Man’s World.

It started with my realization that real people do not do real things because they “ought” to be done. In the aftermath of one of the most profitable fund raisers in history — the Ethiopian famine — I realized that, for the first time in history, a photograph of one starving child was worth a hundred million dollars.

No one else thought that way. No one else would have realized the implications. So I already decided what I would find before I Googled “starvation.”

If people did what they “ought” to do, the end of starvation for the first time in human history as a major cause of death would have been prominently announced.

The problem was that nobody had any incentive to announce it. First, people raise money by complaining and saying they can feed the hungry or save the world from pollution. The modern world is still recognized as being the product of whites, so it is a BAD world, with pollution, racism and so forth.

The Google search turned out to be exactly what I had expected. The words “There is no more starvation” simply cannot be found. As I expected, all the entries were about “hunger,” which can be defined any way you want to define it. Every one of the Pharaohs had vitamin deficiencies that would send them for immediate treatment today.

“Starvation,” said one entry, “is a form of hunger.” It then discussed the various programs that you could give money to for fighting hunger.

Oh, by the way, blindness is a form of eye problems.



The Mantra Goes Comic

Someone had a link to a YouTube that was part of a comedy series. When I looked it had over 300,000 views and other episodes in the series are hitting near 1,000,000.

It started with the comic opening a door for a black girl, and he then started his lecture on how NOT to be a racist. He had instructions, a point system (including points for opening the door for a black girl) and, as he kept pointing out, MOSTLY he had a place to send MONEY to help him fight racism.

He was making fun of professional anti-racism, and he sounded a LOT like ME.

One liberal source quoted THE REPUBLICAN PARTY as saying “anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.” It was hilarious! Can you imagine some respectable conservative, on his knees in front of his liberal, hero unzipping his pants, saying anything LIKE that?

Putin talked about the white race in a very Russian way. He said to a reporter, “The white race is dying out.  Do you understand what I am saying?” No American would put it that way to “the press.”

Also in Russia if someone hits a policeman, the policeman hits him back, right in front of the cameras.

Putin was not speaking to “a reporter,” he was talking to another Russian. Russian police do not think that the arrestee hit “a policeman.” They hit HIM.

Putin was talking to another Russian about the disappearance of THEIR race.

I remember one guy trying to with “anti-racist is a code word for anti-white” by saying that nobody says “anti-racist” any more. Years ago, one of the first standard replies to the Mantra was that no one says “race problem” any more.

And “race problem” has almost disappeared from our public dialogue.

It vanished.

I noticed.

One of our best BUGSERS was moaning to me about how when we swarmed on anti-racist they would deny they ever used the term and use Hate instead. He said that whatever we discredit they will just switch words.

What a tragedy!

When a group opens fire, what do you EXPECT the enemy to do, line up shoulder to shoulder so they can be better targets?

They are scattering away from words they have used for years, tens of millions of times, and claiming they never even HEARD them.

We are shooting and they are scattering.

That’s how battles are won.

Nothing should encourage you more to KEEP SHOOTING.
