This afternoon the Italian neighbor lady lost it

With a machine gun fire of incredible verbosity

More rapid than any Cuban’s speech to the power of ten

Punctuated with the English “Back off!” and “That’s it!!”

In my mind’s eye I imagined her man’s tailbone come to life

As it elongated and tucked itself between his legs

Morphed into a constrictor

And squeezed his balls to death

As I bail out of the game, here is the gift of all (or nearly all) of the ronaldthomaswest.com articles in a single page of links; beginning with stories of travels through India, then, my personal life adventures largely centered in Native America, if only because I believe this is my most under-appreciated work and deserves greater exposure. Following these accounts are things I personally find interesting, next are external links to books authored by myself and then my satire. Lastly, scroll down to find that work I most detest, the work which had inspired the satire (a sort of therapy) – to discover the real evils of geopolitics.

My blog had begun attracting readers in mid 2014, when I’d been giving it real attention for several months. This upcoming week of 21 March 2016, coinciding with withdrawing from giving ronaldthomaswest.com sustained attention, it will pass the 100,000 hits mark (it stands at 99,685 as I write this.)

Hardly some mega-phenomena but not bad either. Now, it’s just another internet archive –

Updated 23 July 2016:

GLADIO returns to Munich: “A Munich police spokesman says witnesses have reported seeing three shooters with “long guns” who attacked a McDonald’s in a city mall”

Munich_3_Shooters.jpg - 1

Three gunmen then magically morph into a single shooter who commits suicide: “A teenage German-Iranian gunman who killed nine people in a shooting spree at a busy Munich shopping centre and then committed suicide had likely acted alone, German police said Saturday”

Munich_3_Shooters_(2).jpg - 1

This preceding would appear to be the more recent USA GLADIO model re-exported to Europe; recalling there has never been a satisfactory explanation for how a recently sold in the USA military grade assault rifle was reported to be employed in the Paris Bataclan massacre: “Milojko Brzakovic of the Zastava arms factory told The Associated Press that the M92 semi-automatic pistol’s serial number matched one his company delivered to an American online arms dealer in May 2013. It was not clear how the gun got back to Europe”

As well at the Bataclan, a member of the band stating: “When I first got to the venue and walked in, I walked past the dude who was supposed to be the security guard for the backstage. I immediately went to the promoter and said: ‘Who’s that guy? I want to put another dude on. Eventually I found out that six or so [band security detail] wouldn’t show up at all.”

Moving on to the USA and the recent killing of police in Dallas, immediately, it is apparent the reporting is problematic; with initial reports of multiple snipers firing from elevated positions, which would be consistent with an initial high rate of police casualties. Most of the police appear to have been gunned down in the first minutes. It was also reported the fire (from multiple snipers) was “triangulated” or a professionally set up, coordinated ambush. Former CIA officer & clandestine service Afghanistan veteran William Hurd stated: “When gunfire started exchanging, you had folks in cross positions that were moving towards the target,” the Texas Republican told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” program. “Usually, most folks that have never been in that situation are going the opposite direction. The level of coordination, there seemed to be some type of triangulation”

This information is also stated by the Dallas Chief of Police: “We believe these suspects were positioning themselves in a way to try to triangulate against officers,” Brown said”

But within 48 hours the narrative had dramatically changed; it is now a ‘lone gunman’ whom the police took care to blow up with a robot after they had him cornered (never-mind they’d initially reported he’d shot himself.) Question: Why, after cornering the suspect, instead of holding out for a negotiated surrender and possible critically important intelligence gains, would they take him out with an explosive device?  How could  the professional police of Dallas, many of them military veterans qualified  to make an accurate first assessment, get it all so wrong as to have to change the entire story?

At San Bernardino; three shooters, tall with athletic build: eye witness account. Of course we all are subsequently informed this was a (conveniently dead) lone gunman…

 

Orlando nightclub shooting; eyewitnesses claim more than one shooter and accomplices preventing escapes, blocking exit doors from the outside, while shooting went on. Of course this morphed into a single, dead shooter…

Orlando eyewitnesses part 1:

Orlando eyewitnesses part 2:

 

The Navy Yard shootings generated initial reports of multiple gunmen at more than one location, but ultimately a single lone gunman is dead at the scene. But this one gets a little stickier; a swat team on location was ordered not to intervene and leave scene of the ongoing shooting: “A tactical response team from the force was told by a supervisor to leave the scene instead of aiding municipal officers, police sources told the BBC”

BBC_Navy_Yard_SWAT.jpg - 1

Aurora: The evidence covered up by law enforcement and the court in the ‘Batman’ theater shooting is nothing short of overwhelming. Video of close eyewitness accounts (<preceding link is expanded witness accounts) clearly detail the shooter(s) had inside help and this evidence is suppressed:

The only difference between the old domestic Gladio which had been western intelligence agencies engineering terror and the current version of domestic Gladio (Gladio B) is the label put on the enemies supposedly responsible; today’s boogeyman is radical Islam whereas previous to the fall of the Soviet Union the terror boogeyman was communism. A fifty minutes documentary of social engineering via GLADIO terror cells employed by intelligence agencies in Europe is a good place to start:

A postscript observation would be concerning historian Daniele Ganser’s otherwise excellent conclusions in his 2004 book NATO’s Secret Armies:

‘Prudent Precaution or source of Terror?’ the international press pointedly asked when the secret stay-behind armies of NATO were discovered across Western Europe following the Gladio revelations in Italy in late 1990.

After more than ten years of research and investigation the answer is now clear: Both. The secret stay-behind armies of NATO were a prudent precaution, as the available documents and testimonies amply demonstrate. Based on the experiences of the Second World War and the rapid and traumatic occupation of most European countries by the German and Italian forces, military experts feared the Soviet Union and became convinced that a stay-behind army could be of strategic value when it came to the liberation of the occupied territory. Behind enemy lines the secret army could have strengthened the resistance spirit of the population, helped in the running of an organised and armed national resistance, sabotaged and harassed the occupying forces, exfiltrated shot down pilots, and gathered intelligence for the government in exile.

Based on the fear of a potential invasion after the Second World War highly placed officials in the national European governments, in the European military secret services, in NATO as well as in the CIA and the MI6 therefore decided that a secret resistance network had to be set up already during peacetime. On a lower level in the hierarchy citizens and military officers in numerous countries of Western Europe shared this assessment, joined the conspiracy and secretly trained for the emergency. These preparations were not limited to the 16 NATO member countries, but included also the four neutral countries in Western Europe, namely Austria, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland, on which the author is preparing a second publication. In retrospect it has become obvious that the fear was without reason and the training had been futile for the invasion of the Red Army never came. Yet such a certainty was not available at the time. And it is telling that the cover of the network, despite repeated exposures in many countries during the entire Cold War, was only blown completely at exactly the same moment when the Cold War ended and the Soviet Union collapsed. The secret stay-behind armies of NATO, however, were also a source of terror, as the evidence available now shows. It has been this second feature of the secret war that has attracted a lot of attention and criticism in the last decade, and which in the future will need more investigation and research. As of now the evidence indicates that the governments of the United States and Great Britain after the end of the Second World War feared not only a Soviet invasion, but also the Communist Parties, and to a lesser degree the Socialist Parties. The White House and Downing Street feared that in several countries of Western Europe, and above all in Italy, France, Belgium, Finland and Greece, the Communists might reach positions of influence in the executive and destroy the military alliance NATO from within by betraying military secrets to the Soviet Union. It was in this sense that the Pentagon in Washington together with the CIA, MI6 and NATO in a secret war set up and operated the stay-behind armies as an instrument to manipulate and control the democracies of Western Europe from within, unknown to both European populations and parliaments. This strategy lead to terror and fear, as well as to “humiliation and maltreatment of democratic institutions’, as the European press correctly criticised.

Experts of the Cold War will note that Operation Gladio and NATO’s stay-behind armies cast a new light on the question of sovereignty in Western Europe. It is now clear that as the Cold War divided Europe, brutality and terror was employed to control populations on both sides of the Iron Curtain. As far as Eastern Europe is concerned, this fact has long been recognised, long before it had been openly declared. After the Red Army had in 1968 mercilessly crushed the social reforms in Prag, Soviet leader Leonid Breschnew in Moscow with his infamous ‘Breschnew doctrine’ had openly declared that the countries of Eastern Europe were only allowed to enjoy ‘limited sovereignty’. As far as Western Europe is concerned the conviction of being sovereign and independent was shattered more recently. The data from Operation Gladio and NATO’s stay-behind armies indicates a more subtle and hidden strategy to manipulate and limit the sovereignty, with great differences from country to country. Yet a limitation of sovereignty it was. And in each case where the stay-behind network in the absence of a Soviet invasion functioned as a straightjacket for the democracies of Western Europe, Operation Gladio was the Breschnew doctrine of Washington. The strategic rationale to protect NATO from within cannot be brushed aside lightly. But the manipulation of the democracies of Western Europe by Washington and London on a level which many in the European Union still today find difficult to believe clearly violated the rule of law and will require further debate and investigation. In some operations the secret stay-behind soldiers together with the secret military services monitored and filed left-wing politicians and spread anti-Communist propaganda. In more violent operations the secret war led to bloodshed. Tragically the secret warriors linked up with right-wing terrorists, a combination that led – in some countries including at least Belgium, Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Greece and Turkey – to massacres, torture, coup d’etats and other violent acts. Most of these state-sponsored terrorist operations, as the subsequent cover-ups and fake trials suggest, enjoyed the encouragement and protection of selected highly placed governmental and military officials in Europe and in the United States. Members of the security apparatus and the government on both sides of the Atlantic who themselves despise being linked up with right-wing terrorism must in the future bring more clarity nd understanding into these tragic dimensions of the secret Cold War in Western Europe.

If Cold War experts will derive new data from NATO’s stay-behind network for their discourse on limited sovereignty during the Cold War, then international legal experts and analysts of dysfunctions of democracies will find data on the breakdown of checks and balances within each nation. The Gladio data indicates that the legislative was unable to control the more hidden branches of the executive, and that parliamentary control of secret services is often non-existing or dysfunctional in democracies on both sides of the Atlantic. Totalitarian states have long been known to have operated a great variety of largely uncontrolled and unaccountable secret services and secret armies. Yet to discover such serious dysfunctions also in numerous democracies comes as a great surprise, to say the least. Within this debate of checks and balances military officials have been correct to point out after the discovery of Operation Gladio and NATO’s stay-behind network that there can never be such a thing as a ‘transparent stay-behind army’, for such a network would be exposed immediately in case of invasion and its members would be killed by the invasion force. Parliamentarians and constitutional lawyers meanwhile have been equally correct to emphasise that both the armed forces and the secret services of a democracy must at all times be transparent, accountable, controlled and supervised closely by civilian representatives of the people as they represent the most powerful instruments of the state.

This clash between mandatory secrecy and mandatory transparency, which lies at the heart of the Gladio phenomenon, directly points to the more general question of how much secrecy should be granted to the executive branch of a democracy. Judged from the Gladio evidence, where a lack of transparency and accountability has lead to corruption, abuse and terror, the answer is clear: The executive should be granted no secrecy and should at all times be controlled by the legislative. For a secret government, as it manifested itself in the United States and parts of Western Europe, can lead to abuse and even state terrorism. The growth of Intelligence abuses reflects a more general failure of our basic institutions’, US Senator Frank Church had wisely noted after a detailed investigation of CIA covert operations already in the 1970s. Gladio repeats this warning with a vengance.

It can hardly be overemphasised that running a secret army and funding an unaccountable intelligence service entails grave risks every democracy should seek to avoid. For the risks do not only include uncontrolled violence against groups of citizens, but mass manipulation of entire countries or continents. Among the most far-reaching findings on the secret war, as seen in the analysis, ranges the fact that the stay-behind network had served as a tool to spread fear amongst the population also in the absence of an invasion. The secret armies in some cases functioned as an almost perfect manipulation system that transported the fears of high-ranking military officers in the Pentagon and NATO to the populations in Western Europe. European citizens, as the strategists in the Pentagon saw it, due to their limited vision were unable to perceive the real and present danger of Communism, and therefore they had to be manipulated. By killing innocent citizens on market squares or in supermarkets and blaming the crime on the Communists the secret armies together with convinced right-wing terrorists effectively translated the fears of Pentagon strategists into very real fears of European citizens.

The destructive spiral of manipulation, fear and violence did not end with the fall of the Soviet Union and the discovery of the secret armies in 1990, but on the contrary gained momentum. Ever since the vicious terrorist attacks on the population of the United States on September 11, 2001 and the beginning of the ‘War on Terrorism’ fear and violence dominate not only the headlines across the globe but also the consciousness of millions. In the West the ‘evil Communist’ of the Cold War era has swiftly been replaced with the ‘evil Islamist’ of the war on terrorism era. With almost 3,000 civilians killed on September 11, and several thousands killed in the US-led war on terrorism so far with no end in sight, a new level of brutality has been reached.

Such an environment of fear, as the Gladio evidence shows, is ideally suited to manipulate the masses on both sides into more radical positions. Osama Bin Laden and his Al Qaida terror network manipulated millions of Muslims, above all young male adults, to take up a radical position and believe in violence. On the other side also the White House and the administration of George Bush junior has fuelled the spiral of violence and fear and lead millions of Christians and seculars in the United States and in Europe to believe in the necessity and justice of killing other human beings in order to enhance their own security. Yet human security is not being advanced, but on the contrary decays, as the atmosphere is drenched with manipulation, violence and fear. Where the manipulation and the violence originate from and where they lead to, is at times very difficult to dissect. Hitler and the Nazis had profited greatly from manipulation and the fear in the wake of the mysterious Reichstagsbrand in Berlin in 1933, whereupon the Third Reich and Second World War followed. In 2001 the war on terrorism began, and once again radical critics have argued that the White House had manipulated 9/11, the largest terrorist attack in history, for geostrategic purposes.

As people across the globe share a vague sensation ‘that it cannot go on like that’ many search for an exit strategy from the spiral of violence, fear and manipulation. In Europe a consensus is building that terrorism cannot be defeated by war, as the latter feeds the spiral of violence, and hence the war on terrorism is not part of the solution but part of the problem. Furthermore also more high-tech – from retina scanning to smart containers – seems unable to really protect potential targets from terror attacks. More technology might even increase the challenges ahead when exploited for terrorist purposes and asymmetric warfare, a development observable ever since the invention of dynamite in the nineteenth century. Arguably more technology and more violence will therefore not solve the challenges ahead. A potential exit strategy from the spiral of fear, manipulation and violence might have to focus on the individual human being itself and a change of consciousness. Given its free will the individual can decide to focus on non-violent solutions of given problems and promote a dialogue of understanding and forgiveness in order to reduce extremist positions. The individual can break free from fear and manipulation by consciously concentrating on his or her very own feelings, thoughts, words and actions, and by focusing all of them on peaceful solutions. As more secrecy and more bloodshed are unlikely to solve the problems ahead the new millennium seems a particularly adequate time to begin with such a shift in consciousness which can have positive effects both for the world and for oneself.

Following on his excellent deconstructive analysis of GLADIO, Ganser’s epic fail is in the last paragraph where…

A potential exit strategy from the spiral of fear, manipulation and violence might have to focus on the individual human being itself and a change of consciousness. Given its free will the individual can decide to focus on non-violent solutions of given problems and promote a dialogue of understanding and forgiveness in order to reduce extremist positions. The individual can break free from fear and manipulation by consciously concentrating on his or her very own feelings, thoughts, words and actions, and by focusing all of them on peaceful solutions

…naively presuming the class of psychopaths risen to rule from the shadow will somehow magically correct the organic deficit in their personalities. What’s more and what’s worse is, on top of ‘leopards don’t shed their spots’ or criminals do not voluntarily surrender their business models, utterly missing is the ‘how’ that will be required; to weed out a pervasive criminal ‘deep state’ apparatus rooted in every branch and at every level across western democratic institutions. This septic infection of western democratic institutions has become the world’s largest and most entrenched organized crime family, where military-industrial corporate boards are fused with rogue intelligence agencies and ‘terror’ is essential to their bottom line: PROFIT. The stark reality is, generating terror has become a money making venture of such magnitude, were the symbiotic relationship between deliberately generated terror, and the armaments and related industries that derive immense profits from the same, were interrupted, the western culture’s economic engine would collapse.

Insofar as Genser’s ‘non-violence’ proposal, that is well and good, provided it is not manipulated akin to the Gene Sharp model where Ghandi’s moral and ethical principles had been suborned to amoral utilitarian ends based in ‘color revolutions.’ This evil, and those who’ve perpetrated it, must be put away. As well, Genser’s last paragraph should not be construed to allow the GLADIO criminal elements forgiveness along the lines of a ‘truth and reconciliation’ process, which is inconsistent with accountability and the rule of law. If the criminals were to walk free, the principle of deterence is not only rendered meaningless, recidivism would reinfect every institution.

The cycle of revolution attending the ‘rise and fall’ phenomena of the western civilized hierarchies throughout history demonstrates a failed model. At the end of the day, that required going forward will be more along the lines of a ‘reverse’ Social Darwinism where decentralization is the habit and the rule, and all those aspiring to the rise of hierarchy are speedily and effectively squelched; demanding an entirely new social perspective. The impediments to this are formidable.

Example given, rather than initiate a program to convert eastern Europe’s small farmers to organic production, when expanding, the European Union has forced tens (perhaps hundreds) of thousands of small farmers off the land with required equipment and farm to market ‘upgrades’ these small farmers could not afford or had no access to where the infrastructure did not exist, effectively handing ‘food security’ to multinational conglomerates such as Monsanto and Syngenta. Already a new generation is coming up having lost critical knowledge in community self-sufficiency. There have been few less criminal and anti-democratic acts in the annals of democracy; where the actual facts demand surrender of a community right to self-sufficiency. On the pretext of ‘sanitation’ the EU took away the largest source of clean, community produced foodstuffs and has positioned the likes of Monsanto and Syngenta to replace this vanished community produce with product that, were it labelled honestly, would sport a skull and crossed bones.

Every day that passes with these sort of events left unchecked, reduces the chances of intelligent dismantling of a system gone horrendously wrong; sans violence and escalated social trauma. Everyday that passes under the current criminal class of leadership, those GLADIO false flag actors represented in Obama, Cameron, Merkel, Hollande & company, who either cannot or will not look and act beyond the amorality of ‘Realpolitik’ and move on behalf of people rather than a corporate system which feeds on people, compounds the problem.

Each day of deferred action determines increased gravity in coming, inevitable, social collapse. It is the undeniable repeat history of western civilization. Short of intelligent dismantlement, a radical event in the age of the most lethal weapons the world has ever seen, there almost certainly will be no ‘phoenix’ rise from the western civilization’s ashes, this time. C’est la mort.

The extra-constitutional order born out of the National Security Act of 1947 is when the American state finally went completely off the rails in regards to the rule of law. This is when corporations became welded to the new ‘national security state’, undermining the constitutional order so completely, the rise and entrenchment of an unaccountable shadow government was inevitable:

http://now.tufts.edu/articles/shadow-government

What few people understand within and without the USA is the composition of this dark entity. There are competing factions represented in two larger camps of neo-liberal and neo-conservative, where there is a power struggle. Both camps are criminal actors relating to there is a fusion of corporate board policy to every department of government at every level, not least intelligence agencies with actors with broad capacity to act independently of any legitimate oversight. Within this hidden framework, endless deceits and subversion play out, with each side seeking to undermine the other. A leech fastened to this sick animal is the Israeli Zionist element in the USA, AIPAC, propped up by a much larger and more powerful Christian Zionist element consisting of a messianic ‘Christian millennial’ social phenomena whose beliefs system is quite openly and honestly laid out by the apocalyptic, neo-conservative author Tim LeHay:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left_Behind

^ People who actually believe in this stuff are in control of the Pentagon, and also make up a disproportionate of the United States military officer corps and it is the Air Force (where the majority of the USA’s nuclear stockpiles are kept in custody) is the most thoroughly infected. These are the people with the upper hand:

This stuff isn’t touched by the left’s ‘alternative mainstream media’ and the neo-conservative outlets on the right posing as alternative media (e.g. The Daily Beast) of course will never dig into the criminality of their own players. Why doesn’t the left touch it? Probably because of several factors; 1) there is a lot of overlap between the camps, the two cooperate in crime having to do with areas of mutual interest, you can’t dig into one without stumbling across complicity of the other 2) plain old narcissism leading to a blinding denial, for instance the American left’s inability to honestly examine the relationship of Daniel Ellsberg to Edward Lansdale because it would shake the foundation of their political mythology and open other (practically religious) icons Julian Assange, Ray McGovern, Robert Parry, et al, to serious question and examination 3) leading to obvious next assumption; the American left is so thoroughly compromised by intelligence assets, witting and unwitting, they’ve been effectively castrated:

http://www.counterpunch.org/2003/03/08/will-the-real-daniel-ellsberg-please-stand-up/

With the several preceding (named) players consistently steering people’s attention away from the real danger zones, the apocalyptic-messianic, Christian millennial neo-conservative camp has all but won. In other words, we could call the composite circumstance an upcoming, messianic ‘Armageddon 4 U’ (whether you like the facts or not)

Mephisto

A Mephisto assessment of reality

Christian civilization is a civilization of inculcated homosexuality .. dark, angry and insecure. It is a civilization in denial. It is a civilization of theologically and culturally practiced misogyny. Raphael’s paradox points to the Christian homosexual’s necessary maintenance of denial (through hypocrisy) to succeed in this environment and how the exception of living true to oneself as an unabashed heterosexual, one might say ‘a pagan’, would require a certain stealth and luck, or at the least, a clever balancing act, to survive. Raphael’s paradox reflects these complications.

At the beginning of this exam, it does well to examine the Western languages’ simplistic gender; masculine, feminine and neuter. In mainstream (Western) culture, these limited ideas largely determine, via peer perception, whether one is straight or gay, ignoring pretty much altogether the nuance of a natural androgyny in our species. And consider the thought; androgyny is not necessarily gay (or for that matter, straight) but is something altogether on its own. But therein lies a fixation in suppressing much that is feminine in most self-identified ‘straight’ males. And in Western culture, many females have hyper-developed male characteristics in a contradiction of demanding ‘equal rights’ to men. Is to become male an authentic avenue to equality for women? And in this matrix where natural androgyny is confused with sexuality, endless self-deceits play out.

In Westerners, misogyny and gynophobia are so intertwined as to be nearly indistinguishable. This stems from confusing natural androgyny with sexuality in a crucible of fear engendered in violence. This is the source of ‘hidden’ or inculcated homosexuality in larger society that is experienced as homophobia in both males and females, where deviancy should be defined as aggressive-anti-social behaviors as opposed to sexual orientation. Wars of aggression bleeding societies foreign and domestic are, by definition, collective anti-social behavior of a suicidal civilization, any and all ethnocentric bias/denial notwithstanding.

From speculations concerning Frederick the Great’s preoccupation with homo-erotica…

Typical German palace ‘garden art’

…to the more certain case of a German general who dropped dead mid-pirouette wearing only a ballerina tutu as documented by William Manchester, Western militarism is thoroughly littered with closet homosexuality. That women are punished within the context of literal rape or the sacking of cities over the course of Western history, points to the misogyny within the gynophobia in Western society.

Contemporary extreme examples of this mentality would be Michele Bachmann married to a man so freaked out at homosexuality, he engages in ‘therapy’ supposedly able to ‘cure’ gays. His attraction to Bachmann is her hyper-masculine aggressiveness or that is to say they are engaged in a psychological homosexual relationship themselves; the physical gender is superficial. Another case of this could be David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell; she is hyper-masculine in her physicality (a West Point body-building queen)

Paula_Broadwell

As well (as do many Western women) often preferring masculine attire..

paula_broadwell2

 ..in a culture where men suppress the feminine elements of a naturally androgynous intelligence and women seek to bolster their masculine traits and appearance to become attractive to the most aggressive males. This is a homosexual under-culture or foundation of Western society that manifests in competitions at every level and glories in conquests. The other side of the coin is, the inherent denial required generates a deep and abiding anger; this is what translates into bigotry and hate. The source of the denial is fear and the fear stems from abhorrence at what any naked self-exam would discover: a hyper-inculcated homosexuality at odds with the one’s own cultural myths.

In Europe and Asia male hierarchy rose to create and maintain civilizations based on essential slavery of those many required to keep a society militarized on a large scale. This model has held, in several incarnations, to the present and has largely overtaken the world. The most aggressive incarnation of this system stems from Europe and is the present global model. Modern Europe is a result of the inter-meshing of two phenomena; a tribal mythology (The Fall) based in gynophobia overtook an empire or, that is to say, when Rome became Christianized.

In the formative period of what has become modern Europe we see this example:

“Do you not know you are each an Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age: the guilt must of necessity live too. You are the devil’s gateway: you are the unsealer of that forbidden tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God’s image, man. On account of your desert – that is death – even the Son of God had to die.” –Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus (d. 255 AD)

And then we have a Christian mob kidnapped the Roman-Greek philosopher (a woman) Hypatia of Alexandria (d. 415 AD)

“and took her to the “Church called Caesareum. They then completely stripped her, and then murdered her with tiles.” Socrates Scholasticus was hence interpreted as saying that, while she was still alive, Hypatia’s flesh was torn off using oyster shells”

After this had happened, when Christianity had finally stamped out the competition throughout the empire, Pope Boniface requested Emperor Phocas neuter the female goddess, formerly peer-consort to the male:

“to order that in the old temple called the Pantheon, after the pagan filth was removed, a church should be made, to the holy virgin Mary and all the martyrs, so that the commemoration of the saints would take place henceforth where not gods but demons were formerly worshipped”

This (preceding) was accomplished in 609. Just shy of 900 years after, Raphael was interred in his crypt at the Pantheon. Meanwhile, the extreme gynophobia which had overtaken the Romans, one could now describe as a cult of the virgin, had only become more entrenched with a (following) Papal Bull kicking witch-hunts into overdrive (noting the ‘both sexes’ is disingenuous, it was primarily women were accused of witchcraft due to ‘The Fall’ and women responsible for all of the evil in this world according to Christian theology in force to this day)

“any persons of both sexes, unmindful of their own salvation and straying from the Catholic Faith, have abandoned themselves to devils, incubi and succubi, and by their incantations, spells, conjurations, and other accursed charms and crafts, enormities and horrid offences, have slain infants yet in the mother’s womb, as also the offspring of cattle, have blasted the produce of the earth, the grapes of the vine, the fruits of the trees, nay, men and women, beasts of burthen, herd-beasts, as well as animals of other kinds, vineyards, orchards, meadows, pasture-land, corn, wheat, and all other cereals; these wretches furthermore afflict and torment men and women, beasts of burthen, herd-beasts, as well as animals of other kinds, with terrible and piteous pains and sore diseases, both internal and external; they hinder men from performing the sexual act and women from conceiving, whence husbands cannot know their wives nor wives receive their husbands; over and above this, they blasphemously renounce that Faith which is theirs by the Sacrament of Baptism, and at the instigation of the Enemy of Mankind they do not shrink from committing and perpetrating the foulest abominations and filthiest excesses to the deadly peril of their own souls, whereby they outrage the Divine Majesty and are a cause of scandal and danger to very many (…) the abominations and enormities in question remain unpunished not without open danger to the souls of many and peril of eternal damnation” -Pope Innocent VIII (decree issued in 1484)

Raphael is about 19 months old when this (preceding) document is entered into force .. by a man (Pope Innocent VIII) who will have a direct bearing on his future. Raphael has been born into a world still making war on pagans, under the guise of prosecuting witchcraft or what the church construes to be the essence of female intelligence or knowledge of ‘sin.’ By this time, closet and suppressed homosexuality has been inculcated in the Christian hierarchy for generations, via inter-generational violence in form of pederasty. Women are simply seen as tools of the devil, except that they are perfect wives who do not question their lot (brood mares) or become cloistered. These are the two safe routes within the male hierarchy. To be a noblewoman is no means to freedom but rather entails a certain privilege to behave in certain respects as a man that is fraught with intrigue and risk. Female or intuitive intelligence is associated with stark evil and villainous. Meanwhile, the men have become heavily homosexual oriented but this must be denied at any cost. Sexual attraction to the female form has been reduced to a metaphor for conquest and become in our modern times (through advertising) the various stages of undress that suggest rape in the sack of cities…

Paul_Jamin_-_Le_Brenn_et_sa_part_de_butin_1893

…where the modern rendering depicts subliminal message of triumph over the feminine principle little different to the historical image .. with women in a constant state of imagined powerlessness demanding surrender to the inevitable:

Fashion-Advertising-Provocative-Understatement

This necrotic circumstance where suppression of the female in an otherwise state of natural androgynous intelligence demands a persistent state of rape, whether literal or metaphor, has been quite consistent over the Christian age; celebrated in a culture born within Rome, from the time of the apostate Roman citizen Saint Paul initiated a misogynist teaching falsely attributed to the historical Jesus, to present.

It follows, when Raphael became a celebrated artist invited to Rome, little was different to the Christian culture of 900 years previous, when the Pantheon was ‘converted’ to the cult of the virgin (women being the ‘untouchable caste’ in the ideal Christian understanding) as well, little difference is to be discovered from the time of Raphael to present; where the Michele Bachmanns and Paula Broadwells of today are little different to a Catherine DeMedici of four centuries past .. psychological males climbing in the hierarchy who would play the games of men’s intrigues at the level of State. These personalities are masculine in actuality, in a mental state of homosexuality with their physical male consorts. And so it is a Michele Bachmann and her ilk will demand a woman bear a rape child in a consistent context of misogynist Christian culture.

The more entrenched one becomes in the hierarchy, the greater degree of (repressed) homosexuality is demanded. If the common citizen is the foot soldier of the culture that sacks cities, the ruling classes produce the generals in competition to demonstrate their greater masculine arts via conquest of the feminine, empowering mass or societal rape. This Christian social phenomena has its exceptions but they remain exactly that, exceptions. Raphael appears to be an exception.

It was the same Pope Innocent VIII who’d issued the papal bull of 1484 concerning witches went on to appoint Tomas Torquemada to head up the Spanish Inquisition. Considering Innocent VIII also made a Cardinal of then 13 years old Giovanni di Lorenzo de Medici who would become Pope Leo X who would become Raphael’s sponsor for most of Raphael’s years in Rome, gives a bit of context to the intrigues, corruption and class prejudices the great painter would be required to negotiate:

“Innocent VIII had two illegitimate children born before he entered the clergy “towards whom his nepotism had been as lavish as it was shameless.” In 1487 he married his elder son Franceschetto Cybo (d. 1519) to Maddalena de’ Medici (1473–1528), the daughter of Lorenzo de’ Medici, who in return obtained the cardinal’s hat for his thirteen-year-old son Giovanni, later Pope Leo X”

In circumstance where women serve as brood mares to insure dynasty, and are otherwise condemned to a class designated as responsible for every ill extant in this world as a matter of theological holding, Raphael was thrust into a subsequent near clone of the preceding arrangement; when he was betrothed to a de Medici Cardinal’s niece at the Cardinal’s insistence.

Unlike Leo X who kept his homosexuality a concealed court intrigue, and unlike Leonardo Da Vinci who was discreet but more or less comfortable with his homosexuality, and unlike Michaelangelo whose homosexuality manifest in perpetually angry personality, Raphael had neither his contemporaries proclivity nor did he suppress his natural androgynous intelligence or confuse this intelligence with sexuality. Indeed, he was a remarkable man in his time and especially in his circumstance.

Raphael painted himself as neither heroic nor macho, not wealthy, and not great; as well he did not portray himself as effeminate. One sees the balance of his natural androgynous intelligence in his demeanor:

Raffaello_Sanzio

Raphael was patently heterosexual in his orientation. He evaded the expectations of his time by keeping a lasting relationship with a baker’s daughter whose “mind was as beautiful as she”

La_donna_velata

By contrast to the living intelligence portrayed in his long time partner (and secret wife, above illustration), his paintings of those women sitting in privilege depict imprisoned personalities with dead countenance somewhat in the style of Da Vinci:

elisabetta_gonzaga_insieme.tif

The de Medici known as Pope Leo X not only narrowly escaped poisoning by his own cardinals, but is from a long line of poisoners bearing the de Medici name. Likely this is what upended Raphael’s life. Had Raphael been the more typical corrupt court favored personality, he’d not have invited deadly offense on two overlapping counts. 1) He dared to marry the woman he actually loved in the course of offending the de Medici family honor in the immediate proximity of three powerful persons of that family name .. a de Medici Pope, a de Medici Duke and a de Medici Cardinal whose niece he was betrothed to as a matter of public record but dared not marry; having secretly married the woman he actually cared for. 2) Raphael daring to marry a baker’s daughter ‘for the beauty of her mind’ or that is to say he did not play by the rules of male hierarchy and held a low born woman to be superior to the wishes of his noble born patron’s family of de Medici name, a second deadly insult.

The inculcated homosexuality of male hierarchy necessary to prop up civilizations, and wars between those civilizations, is irrevocably attached to the consequently created artificial ego of those same civilized cultures. Previous to monotheism’s ‘The Fall’ overtaking what has become modern civilizations, with Christian civilization of modern Europe becoming the most aggressive of these, the preceding civilizations’ militancy based in wars of conquest and male hierarchy, allowed these civilizations’ inherent homosexuality to be in the open. Such was the case with the Greeks of Alexander the Great and the pre-Christian Romans.

Roman_sex

With the advent of Christian civilization and the repression of this (necessary to male hierarchy) homosexuality, aggression increased exponentially. Consequent intra-cultural wars in Christian Europe, contrasted to the previous Roman model, are example prima facie. Where Alexander or the Caesars would allow for self governance of vassal states, changed mentality subsequently saw the culture and laws of conquerors imposed on entire peoples, whether Napoleonic Code on Europe or Western style democracy imposed on Iraq. No differently to the de Medicis were psychologically incapable to refrain from feeling insult at Raphael’s sense of truth to himself, the USA’s ‘exceptionalism’ cannot avoid sense of injury to its’ ego in relation to any challenge of modern empire it denies it exercises so easily; little different to the ease with which modern civilization denies the male hierarchy principles requiring a malignant male narcissism or culturally inculcated homosexuality at its’ core. This reflects in church teaching  where only males can be priests of a church which is “the bride of Christ” or the bride of a man who never defiled himself by lying with a woman.

One doesn’t develop a fever and die after 15 days as a consequence of sex with the woman one loves as purportedly had been the fate of Raphael. Rather one falls ill and dies as a matter of having crossed a noble family in the habit of poisoning people or that is to say insulted the de Medicis’ masculine ego. The script of circumstance is unmistakeable.

When the rise of male hierarchy created a militant mentality or the narcissism necessary to civilization, the resultant homosexuality embedded as a cultural phenomena had been, in the beginning, transitional or optional. Monotheism’s “The Fall” took this development two steps further; with banishing the female principle of intelligence as equal to the male (paganism) and what is more, demonizing the feminine. This paved a sole avenue to a future Roman empire whose philosophical foundation mutated to a malignant-sublimated homosexuality in its entirety. The result is European-based, Christian cultural mentality.

In an ultimate act of irony, a man who never perverted his natural androgynous intelligence, reflected in his art and life, resembling more the pagan of antiquity as opposed to the modern male narcissist, consecrates an original pagan temple against all odds; for Raphael had been interred in the Roman Pantheon. This is Raphael’s paradox.

Hawkin’s Day!

“Of all the writers and thinkers of the 18th century, Sade was among the few to gaze, without flinching, into the worst of human nature, in particular the capacity of inflicting want, pain and destruction upon others” -Geoffrey Roche

I take exception to two elements of the academic Roche’s statement.

In the first instance, it is the idea Sade had any equal as a French philosopher during his age. As much as I might appreciate Montaigne:

“The women are right in their way of breaking the rules, because men made them without asking women”

Or Voltaire:

“The history of the great events of this world are scarcely more than a history of crime”

Sade exceeds both; in his unvarnished, unflinching depiction of European cultural mentality and straightforward determination to unmask this necrotic social phenomena for what it is. The second instance I take exception to, is the descriptive term “human nature.” What Sade explored as a philosopher is NOT ‘human nature‘ but the underpinnings of a social and cultural mentality more specific to Europeans and their several progeny via colonialism. I am not aware of a more endemic ethnocentric bias than that of European based culture and that culture’s academics. That Europeans somehow believe their mentality and ability to perceive ‘human nature’ is in some sense exclusive is not the point of the essay on Sade; but this prejudice is helpful to understand how Sade fits in the  ‘pantheon’ of Western philosophy.

In short, Sade was the result of a convergence of circumstance; his father was a diplomat, as well, a debauched-orgy-engaged nobleman in the court of Louis XV. The younger Sade was educated in his early years by his uncle, a debauched-orgy-engaged abbot and then young Sade, a disciplinary problem, was turned over to the Jesuits to be educated further. Let’s put this into a bit of perspective:

^ From this (above) to Lycée Louis-le-Grand run by these people:

In other words; from the governing institution of France in all of its decadent, orgiastic splendor, to education at the institution responsible for producing a ruling class of people resulting in persons like Sade’s ‘uncle abbot’ who’d introduced him to orgies as a six year old. Immersed in sex already, the Jesuits introduced Sade to extreme violence with flogging for purpose of discipline. By the time de Sade was an adolescent, he’d been immersed in sex and violence, for years.

What makes de Sade interesting is not the cruelty he inspired people to explore more or less openly in subsequent generations, but the institutional cruelty he explored, fearlessly, and the institutional cruelty he consequently described, honestly. ‘Institutional’ is the key term here. He beat Linda Blair (‘The Exorcist’) by two hundred years with introducing the crucifix into sex acts in media, perhaps the most accurate metaphor for the institution of Christian civilization, ever.

De Sade was imprisoned for much of his life for that peculiar crime of exposing his culture’s hypocrisy. He openly practiced what is only allowed to be practiced behind closed doors; making him France’s greatest philosopher .. insofar as those speaking to the facts honestly.
