We tend to think that we are the most civilized and peaceful people on the planet and that we have been busy bringing civilization and peace to benighted souls who need our help. We think we make great sacrifices to do this — just watch the nightly news. However bad we are, or were, they must be, and must have been, even worse. They forced us to be bad.

But a survey of our own history indicates that we are at least as bad as the worst of them — if we are not actually the worst of the worst. Keeping our position as the world hegemon for the last 400 years strongly suggests that we are the worst of the worst. Worse than Hitler and Stalin, or even Gengis Kahn, and Attila the Hun? Yep. It looks that way. That is the lesson of history, after applying "the last man standing" principle and looking at what the last man did next.

Our own ancestral story begins with the Vikings.[1] The Vikings established colonies in Iceland, Greenland, Newfoundland, and visited continental America as far down as Massachusetts. The Vikings raided and established colonies down the coast of Europe from Jutland, around the Iberian Peninsula into the Mediterranean and across to Sicily where they established a kingdom. They even attacked Rome. The Vikings created Russia as they took over the Slavs who were on the Black Sea trade route to "Greece" which is what they called the Byzantine Empire. The most successful Viking project — by far — was begun on the British Isles in 1066 at the Battle of Hastings.[2]

Today, that Viking project is the Anglo-American empire. That is ours. That is us. Yes, we live in an empire. Where do you think we live? This is our history.

William the Conqueror was also known as William the Bastard. People have very long memories. They never forget. People in Scotland, Wales, Ireland and England remember The Norman Conquest a thousand years after it happened. Will our victims forget what we are doing to them today? One day, we will be surprised — just as Jimmy Carter was surprised when he was no longer the POTUS — when we discover that people don't all love us. When he and his wife began trying to do good works in Third World countries, Carter was amazed to discover that most people there are afraid of the United States. He had thought we were their friends.

Scandinavians abandoned their own Viking ways long ago. But we keep up the tradition. Our only moral tests? If it makes money, it must be good. If we win, we must be right. We've been getting away with this for centuries.

But Remember: Be nice to the people you meet on the way up because you'll be meeting them (or their descendants) again on your way down.

Thoughts on this . . .

© MMIX v1.0.7

I think this is generally correct, Robert:

The ruling class rules to benefit itself. Since the ruling class is small, compared to the mass it rules, it must persuade the mass that it is acting in ways that benefit the mass. Rulers like Elizabeth I were popular, for instance. Englishmen felt she was a good queen. They called her Good Queen Bess. They would die for her, and many did. In the final analysis, all rulers get into power and stay in power by general consent. No one has enough power to defy the masses. Stalin was loved by millions of Soviet citizens. Many mourned his passing. They wept when he died because they had lost their protector, their father. Stalin used terror, he killed more Russians than Hitler, but he was loved too. The French Revolution was not saved by The Terror. Napoleon ended the French Revolution. Frenchmen loved their new Emperor when he crowned himself. Everyone who comes to power in the name of the masses, starts acting like the ruling class did before very long.

In the West, we certainly are ruled by an oligarchy. Can our ruling oligarchy be traced back to Charlemagne? Possibly it can. There is absolutely no problem, whatsoever, on the other hand, tracing the oligarchy back to William the Conqueror (A.K.A. William the Bastard) who turned Anglo-Saxon Briton into a military dictatorship in 1066. [1] William's descendant, Elizabeth II, is sitting on the throne today. Her castle, Windsor, was built by William the Conqueror. Elizabeth's immediate ancestors are the Germans who came to the throne in 1688 with Mary, the daughter of James II (who was deposed), and William of Orange. They were succeeded by Mary's sister, Anne. BBC notes: "Anne died on 1 August 1714. Her only surviving son William had died in 1700, prompting parliament to pass the Act of Settlement (1701) to ensure a Protestant succession. Anne was therefore succeeded by the German Protestant prince George, Elector of Hanover." [2] No doubt the Germans can trace themselves back to Charlemagne, who came to power (768) about the same time as William the Conqueror. I would be amazed if they could not.

The United States is dedicated to the ideals of the Declaration of Independence in name only. The American oligarchy began with George Washington and his gang — who are known as The Founding Fathers. Daniel Boone [3] was a contemporary of Washington and the boys; he fought in the many French and Indian Wars, opened up the West, founded Kentucky, and is an American icon, but Boone was not part of the oligarchy. Boone's property was taken away from him (twice!) by the new American tax collectors (who worked for the gang in Washington) and Boone lived his remaining days, with his family, as the governor of a Spanish colony where he had been invited to go when he was forced to leave Kentucky. Boone was not part of the oligarchy. Neither was Thomas Paine [4] who inspired the Declaration of Independence, if he didn't actually write it himself. Unlike Boone, Paine and the peasant Americans who were enlisted to "fight for their liberty," George Washington had deep ancestral roots in the English aristocracy.[5]

After the War of 1812, Great Britain and the U.S.A. became the best of friends. Canada remained an independent country with cooperative relations with the American colossus — unlike Mexico and the other Spanish countries south of the Rio Grande. When asked what the most significant fact of the 20th century would be, Bismarck answered, "In England and in the United States they speak English." The 20th century was about transferring power from London to Washington and New York, where power would be safe inside the American continental empire which was defended by the Strategic Air Command with its impregnable headquarters inside Cheyenne Mountain. Everything else that happened — along with several hundreds of millions who were slaughtered and the stories that are told over and over — was just part of the show.

The Jews? Some of them have always been part of the ruling class everywhere since time immemorial. (Readers of the Bible will remember Joseph who administered Egypt for the Pharaoh. Moses too was part of the ruling élite of Egypt before God recruited him to lead His people out of bondage.) Being downtrodden and oppressed has been part of Jewish culture since the Roman Empire adopted Christianity. This cultural relic actually dates back further — to the Assyrian Conquest and even to The Exodus. Being downtrodden and oppressed has worked for them, especially for those who are part of the ruling oligarchies. Other Jews have been slaughtered, along with everyone else, when that has served the interests of their rulers. [6]

The first Commandment says, "Thou shall have no other Gods before me." Yet, Man has thousands of Gods before Him, the foremost of which is the State and its rulers. These creations of Man may seem powerful — and they are powerful compared to any individual or inferior group — but they have never served Man well. They serve themselves well.

The happy news, as far as I am concerned, is that the objective of the 20th century — to establish our Anglo-American Empire as the permanent world hegemon — has failed. At least it looks that way right now. Today, it looks as if we will have to learn to play nicely with the other children in the sand box. That is my fervent prayer.

What If . . .

The Big Question

© MMIX v 1.1.2

The gospel according to MARK

9:33 They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the road?"
9:34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
9:35 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."

In answer to the Disciples argument about which of them was the greatest, Jesus teaches them that Man's structures of position, power and authority are not important. Serving others is what is important. Jesus is the Good Shepherd. The Disciples must be like Him.

The Big Question:

That seems perfectly clear. Jesus is always consistent about this in all of His teachings. This is totally opposed to Man's society which is hierarchical and is organized on money and power: the most vicious are best suited to rise to the top. Every state-level civilization (they are the societies with a "ruler" and his helpers) has always been organized like a criminal gang. No wonder the Jews wanted to kill him. Jesus was a threat to the people who were running the show. Like Moses and the Prophets before him, Jesus was teaching sedition.

This is the main theme of the Bible. The First Commandment is "Thou shall have no other Gods before me." Yet Man has thousands of Gods before Him: fame, celebrity, sex, money, technology, power, and worse than everything else combined, we have kings, pharaohs, emperors, popes, generals secretary to the politburo, and Man's most grandiose creation yet, the commander in chief, the POTUS, the President of the United States. These creations of Man we worship — they are the Golden Calf.

We say we love peace, yet violence is how we really do things. As only one example: The Anglican Church (the Church of England) was organized during the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods. It was forged during the English Civil War and was finally established with The Act of Settlement in 1701. Settled was the issue of succession to the throne. Roman Catholics were excluded forever because the monarch, as had been established by Elizabeth I, is the head of the Church of England. This Act ended almost two hundred years of wanton slaughter to decide which Christian church — Roman or Anglican — truly represented Christ Jesus and his message of Peace and Hope for Mankind.

Christians have been spreading the message of Jesus as they have understood it ever since long before the Crusades. Our very own Anglo-American empire, which has dominated the world for over four hundred years, began with Elizabeth I. If Jesus were alive today, we would certainly kill Him. Jesus taught the most dangerous kind of ideas, if you are a ruler. Herod understood this perfectly. We understand it too.

What does this have to do with the gospel? What do we Christians think we're doing?

IRAN 7000 BCE to 2009 CE

J Street Questionnaire

© MMIX v 1.0.2

Hi Isaac,

I don't like what either one said. But Biden sounds like the lesser of evils. Gingrich sounds like he's ready for a rubber room. Biden might benefit from an extended vacation on a funny farm, where he could milk contented cows. Both of them likely felt they needed to please the audience: the crazier, the better. The truth is that Iran is not doing, and has never done, one thing that threatens us. Iran has not threatened us for about twenty-five hundred years when they threatened the ancient Greeks, whom some people think were our ancestors (but they actually were not our ancestors). Of course it is true that Iran had the temerity to boot out the Shah, whom the CIA had installed in 1953. Defying the Empire is always considered a bad career move, by those who are running the Empire. The regional hegemony of Israel would be diminished if anyone but Israel had nuclear weapons in the region. But they don't! And no one could use them even if they did. So what's the big problem with Iran? Oh, I know, Iran is a handy boogieman. If there are no boogiemen that the Empire can use to scare people, why, then, people might get the idea that they don't need all the paraphernalia that those running the Empire love so much: no army, no navy, no marines, no airforce, no intelligence agencies, no torture, no skulduggery, no fun. So there you have it in a nutshell. "Nut" is the operative word here. Or, as those crazies have been saying in Iran, "Nuts to you." Will AIPAC get to start World War III? Who knows? I hope not.

Sorry my answer didn't fit into a box on your questionnaire.

Stand with Joe on Israel and Iran

Morley --

You couldn't ask for a starker contrast in visions for America's role in the Middle East than Newt Gingrich and Vice President Joe Biden provided at AIPAC over the past 72 hours.

Gingrich called for military action against Iran and a "wait and see" approach to the two-state solution [1] -- while Biden pressed for tough, principled diplomacy with Iran and argued that a two-state solution is in the essential interests of Israel and the United States. [2]

Biden also spoke from the heart (as he tends to do!) about the politics of this issue during his speech, saying "you're not going to like this" before challenging Israel on the issues of settlements and the two-state solution. He rightly didn't let the Palestinians off the hook either - pressing them to end terror and incitement against Israel.

I don't know about you - but I liked what Vice President Biden said. We need to show the Administration the depth of the political support in our community for their approach on Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict - and that we reject the worn-out Gingrich / Bush / Cheney approach to the Middle East.

Click here to tell President Obama and Joe Biden you like their approach on Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

We'll deliver your petitions to the White House next week to show them the depth of the support we have in our community for their pro-Israel, pro-peace approach to the Middle East.

"Show me," said Vice President Biden at AIPAC's conference yesterday to the Israeli government, the Palestinians, and the Arab states.

He said that "Israel has to work towards a two-state solution" and that Israel should freeze settlement construction, "dismantle outposts and allow Palestinians freedom of movement."

To the Palestinians, Biden's call was to "combat terror and incitement against Israel."

On Iran, he repeated the Administration's commitment to "direct, principled diplomacy with Iran with the overriding goal of preventing them from acquiring nuclear weapons."

The "show me" message could well have been addressed to us - asking us to demonstrate for the President, the media, and our community that we stand with him as he pursues a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and tough, direct diplomacy with Iran.

Click here to add your name to tens of thousands of others who are standing up for President Obama's approach to the Middle East.

Thanks so much.

Physics 911

© MMIX v1.0.5

You may be interested in Physics 911. [1] This is a website organized by Professor Dewdney. It is a forensic examination of the events known as "9/11". These are not "theories". These are conclusions drawn with scientific rigor from the evidence. [2]

I am, myself, especially drawn to the possibility that has been outlined by a "Finnish military expert" that three pineapple-sized micro-nukes (Tritium H-bombs) [3a,3b,3c] with 1,500 foot vertical foci for the taller structures were used to vaporize the cores of the three buildings (WTC1, WTC2, WTC7) 85% of which literally wafted away from the World Trade Center on the breezes — to fall as dust covering lower Manhattan. Nothing like that has ever happened before anywhere in the history of the world. Pools of molten metal were found in the sub basements weeks after the event. How did that happen? Kerosene "jet fuel"? Burning office paper, carpeting, pencils, upholstery and steel desks?

Large numbers of first responders are dying of cancer that was most likely caused by radiation. The official story is a Big Lie from start to end. It doesn't have a leg to stand on. Who, then, is really responsible for this hideous monstrosity? After considering the facts, we are not left with the usual suspects, now, are we?
