The Days of the Locust

“Happy Thanksgiving”? A plague has cast a pall over the land.

Over several seasons much seed has been sown and much labor put in to cultivate good outcomes. But fields and harvests have been set upon by the narcissistic, Machiavellian, psychopathic, sadistic and authoritarian locust of the Left. They have picked clean what is to be gathered in for a National Day of Thanksgiving.

Known for their swarming behavior, these locust gathered to quickly devour the good that had been nurtured over time and leave behind toxic residues. The effect on mankind has been devastating. Lives have been mandated and masked, vexed and vaxxed, cancelled, and clotted. And more.

No amnesty!

Children have been held back in school because of idiotic COVID scientism policies that Democrat teacher’s unions went along with. And in class, children were ‘promoted’ with social emotional learning into Progressivism. They were taught to hate the color of their skin and the colors of the American flag and to love the colors of the rainbow flag.

Children have been and contine to be sexualized, mangled and affirmed to be something they are not in order to please the mal-adjusted psychopathic. Affirming what isn’t affirms the belief system of the Left – nihilism.

Parents have been told by school teachers, therapists and a certain Jesuit that it’s OK for their child to practice the inordinate desire of homosexuality instead of the virtue of rightly ordered love, as described by Saint Augustine:

But living a just and holy life requires one to be capable of an objective and impartial evaluation of things: to love things, that is to say, in the right order, so that you do not love what is not to be loved, or fail to love what is to be loved, or have a greater love for what should be loved less, or an equal love for things that should be loved less or more, or a lesser or greater love for things that should be loved equally. (On Christian Doctrine, I.27-28)

Of course, those who disagree with teachers, therapists and said Jesuit are considered to be out of order and are childishly called “homophobic”. A toxicity of being – “the world, the flesh, and the devil” – is being prescribed for our children.

Lives have been and will continue to be destroyed by the fentaynal, the criminals, the gangs, and the narco-terrorists ushered in by the Left’s open border policy. Leftist NGOs like Catholic Charities are enablers of illegal border crossings, human trafficking and the demise of human life using the mis-interpreted “welcoming the stranger” Scripture.

“What you don’t hear from the Biden administration is that 95% of the fentanyl killing Americans comes from the wide-open southwest border,” said [Mark] Morgan, now a visiting fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Border Security and Immigration Center. “How many more people have to die before we say enough is enough and secure our borders?”  

How America’s Unsecured Border Contributes to Fentanyl Crisis, Deaths (dailysignal.com)

Lives have been and continue to be destroyed by the Left’s cashless bail policies.

Lives of concerned U.S. citizens have been and continue to be DOJ’d and FBI’d for speaking out at school board meetings and online. “Extremist” labels continue to be pinned on those who take a stand against the growing evil. Evil projects to defend it narcissitic core.

Lives have been and continue to be aborted – exterminated at will.

Lives have been and continue to be corrupted by the media – both by the Left’s narrative ‘news’ and its Disney-fied entertainment.

Lives of low and middle class families have been and continue to be taxed by the “transitory inflation” produced by the draconian Green energy policies of the Biden regime (not by oil and gas companies and by not consumers). Disposable income is diminishing and so will donations. (Isn’t all welfare to come from the secular State per the secular State? Isn’t that what is hapening now with wealth redistribution? Thanksgiving is to become meaningless so that Big Brother can become the object of our enforced gratitude!)

The Left continues to cultivate pretense and lies just like their father the devil. The Left continues to censor truth. The Left can’t stand the light of day.

The Left’s right to destroy comes from a perverse need of mastery over others to preserve itself. That’s why acting as locust is their MO. As with demonic oppression and possession, the Left will go as far and devastate as much as you let them.

(Video Warning – Language!)

The Left’s self-righteousness comes from the morality they make up as they go along. Such are the Talmudic-like strictures of DEI, ESG, and CRT.

With stridulation the locust Left cries “We must protect our democracy!” Yet, the Left continues to silence vox populi and elections continue to be rigged and stolen, and voters disnefranchised: Here’s How They Did it: Real-time Election Fraud – American Thinker

Turning to another analogy to underscore the plundering of our lives by the Left, we are being taken captive by the Brave New One World Babylonians. We are being removed from life as we have cultivated it. Babylonian satraps will determine how we live: “You will own nothing – and you’ll be happy about it.”

Right now, children and adults are being led away to the One World Babylon. They have been socially indoctrinated and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold and serve the authoritarian ruling order of globalists. The will must be broken before the “fundamental transformation” of Babylonian Globalist possession takes place.

To do this the Babylonians employ – by any means necessary – harassment, enticement, torment, addiction, defilement and enslavement. The conquest of the will and human agency will soon include the genetic re-engineering of humans.

With Biden’s recent executive order, humans will be genetically bred and tampered with – but not for a Sustainable, Safe, and Secure American Bioeconomy, as the title of the order would have us believe. Rather, the genetic tampering is to be done to make humanoids that are passive and compliant. (Or, as Italy’s Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni “has argued in a now-viral speech that the secular – progressive – left wants to turn people into ‘perfect consumer slaves’.”

Our freedom, our humanity, and our souls are set to be vanquished by the invading One World Babylonian hordes. Don’t expect “peace on earth and good will towards men” this year. Expect the pestilence of the Great Reset. Expect that like the locust (and the Biden inflation), they will ravage and plunder all that concerns you. The Left is a pandemic.

Call on the name of the Lord:

The Lord works vindication

and justice for all who are oppressed.

He made known his ways to Moses,

his acts to the people of Israel.

-Psalm 103: 6-7

“…for anyone who is concerned about the survival of culture, there are some important lessons in the armory of cultural instructions accompanying a humble tomato plant.  Perhaps the chief lesson has to do with time and continuity, the evolving permanence that cultural animi no less than agricultural cultivation requires if it is to be successful.

Another pyramid scheme: COP27

Looking for new ways to part with money, science, common sense, and freedom? Well, you are in luck. There is a Pyramid Scheme called “Climate Change Crisis”.

The UN recruits investors during annual media-doting climate conferences. The recruits come to believe that they are part of a global response to a “climate emergency”. They make commitments to “substantially reduce global greenhouse gas emissions to limit the global temperature increase in this century to 2 degrees Celsius while pursuing efforts to limit the increase even further to 1.5 degrees” per the UN webpage.

That’s the ploy. But no one knows exactly how much carbon needs to get cut to produce results. We don’t know how much to cut, where to cut it, or why some industries need to work on this issue and others do not. Any reporting of a country’s carbon emissions cuts back to the top of the pyramid, of course, would be as questionable as the climate science data is.

And since “climate emergency” is the scheme’s appeal, unlimited draconian measures are urged and so is open-ended financing. No one knows exactly how much one should be forced to take the brunt of green agenda which would include carbon taxes, soaring energy prices, and population control. And, no one knows exactly how much one is forced to pay into the scheme. That’s the “beauty” of the wealth redistribution pyramid scheme! In return, for a(ny) price the scheme provides the pretense of climate activism while scamming the public.

Climate Recruits are led to believe that they are sending “financing to developing countries to mitigate climate change, strengthen resilience and enhance abilities to adapt to climate impacts.” Note: there’s no real product or business venture in a pyramid scheme. In the climate scheme there’s just questionable numbers coming out of a messaged computer program feeding even more questionable weather forecasting. There’s only GIGO climate data that fits the Greenies pyramid scheme narrative of “climate crisis”.

The UN: “The climate crisis is pushing more and more people to the brink in a year of unprecedented hunger. World leaders at COP27 must act swiftly to help millions of people facing rising hunger and famine.”

(Have you noticed that those who live in areas not conducive to agriculture and not supportive of life are not suffering the effects of climate change? Rather, they are suffering from an unwillingness to move to better environmental conditions. Climate cash will not change the environment.)

And, there’s this: from a 2016 webpage article UN “Green Climate” Program Is a Slush Fund for Dictators – Foundation for Economic Education (fee.org)

According to the current estimates, developed countries will be obliged to contribute up to $450 billion a year by 2020 to the GCF, which will then “redistribute” the money to developing countries allegedly suffering from the effects of global warming. 

Robert Mugabe, the dictator who ruled Zimbabwe since 1980, salivated at the prospect of redistributed global warming cash. 

Would-be dictator Obama pledged $3 billion to the Paris Agreement. Future annual contributions would continue increasing, per Obama. Note: the $3 billion did not come out of Obama’s pocket. Future payments will not come out of Obama’s pocket. Obama recruited U.S. tax payers into the pyramid scheme.  You and I, our children and grandchildren and their children are on the hook.

The scheme’s recruits, which include “Heads of State, ministers, and negotiators, along with climate activists, mayors, civil society representatives and CEOs” are expected to make payments to the UN Green Climate Fund established in 2010 via negotiations that took place in Cancun, Mexico. But, as we have learned, the UN Green Climate Fund started in 2010 is “slush fund for global dictators.” Anyone staying in the agreement is contributing to this issue.

COP-27 is the latest convention promoting the pyramid scheme. (You can find the COP27 marketing material on the UN Climate Action webpage here.)

UN: “Faced with a growing energy crisis, record greenhouse gas concentrations, and increasing extreme weather events, COP27 seeks renewed solidarity between countries, to deliver on the landmark Paris Agreement, for people and the planet.”

World leaders, climate groups and activists are meeting in the Egyptian coastal city of Sharm el-Sheikh for the largest annual gathering on climate action. They are there to thrash out plans on how to safeguard the future of the(ir) planet. Expect a lot of photos of pyramid people lined up in solidarity. They will be smiling, ready to shake you down.

These global grifters flew in – using some 400 private jets– to tackle the “climate emergency” and commit to “finance climate action in developing countries” (with your tax money!). Carbon emissions from jet planes? No worries. These nomadic negotiators will chow down on vegan meals and use recycling containers and various “carbon offsets” for unavoidable emissions caused by the conference.

Of course, the busy bodies of Paris Agreement must also tamper with the social climate. The agreement veers into absurd political and ideological language, requiring countries to address extraneous themes like gender equity, biodiversity, poverty eradication, migrants, disabled persons, a “just transition of the workforce,” “creation of decent work,” and so on.

“A pyramid scheme” you ask? Consider that the recruits, called “stakeholders” by the WEF, expect to receive payments in terms of money and political profit from their media-generated recruits (i.e., taxpayers). When the number of new recruits (think psyop targets) fails to sustain the hierarchical payment structure the scheme collapses with most of the participants losing the money (and proposed climate bennies) they put in via taxes. Those at the top of the pyramid (and dictators) make off like bandits. In the meantime, the scheme generates wealth redistribution – from us to them.

(Isn’t it something how the govt. takes money out of our paychecks for Social Security and when we retire the govt. parcels the money back to us as a “Benefit”! The American people have been suckered so many times by so many schemes to separate us from our money.)

And this: The government doesn’t determine what is a “benefit” for me. I do!)

Climate reparations? The climate reparations bidding war is on. What began at $100-billion-a-year at COP-21 in Paris rapidly ballooned to $1.3-trillion on the eve of COP-27 in Sharm-el-Sheikh-Down, Egypt and now stands at $2.4-trillion annually! And we’re nowhere near “going once, going twice, sold.” – Paul Driessen, Escaping From the COP-27 Insane Asylum (townhall.com)

We are being sold into an OT Egyptian type slavery thanks to the pyramid scheme of Greenies. And, you can be sure that slavery will not include free speech. Climate Change “misinformation” censorship is next:

You won’t hear Psalm 104 read at COP27. The godless and those who think that God is an absentee landlord come up with their own stewardship plans. Their stewardship plans involve your money, your freedom and your life via the climate change pyramid.

With the gathering of the climate grifters near the cradle of civilization, the fertile crescent, it would be good to remind ourselves of just who the ultimate Climate Change Caretaker is.

Psalm 104

God the Creator and Provider

Bless the Lord, O my soul.
    O Lord my God, you are very great.
You are clothed with honor and majesty,
    wrapped in light as with a garment.
You stretch out the heavens like a tent;
    you set the beams of your[a] chambers on the waters;
you make the clouds your[b] chariot;
    you ride on the wings of the wind;
you make the winds your[c] messengers,
    fire and flame your[d] ministers.

You set the earth on its foundations,
    so that it shall never be shaken.
You cover it with the deep as with a garment;
    the waters stood above the mountains.
At your rebuke they flee;
    at the sound of your thunder they take to flight.
They rose up to the mountains, ran down to the valleys,
    to the place that you appointed for them.
You set a boundary that they may not pass,
    so that they might not again cover the earth.

10 You make springs gush forth in the valleys;
    they flow between the hills,
11 giving drink to every wild animal;
    the wild asses quench their thirst.
12 By the streams[e] the birds of the air have their habitation;
    they sing among the branches.
13 From your lofty abode you water the mountains;
    the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.

14 You cause the grass to grow for the cattle
    and plants for people to cultivate,
to bring forth food from the earth
15     and wine to gladden the human heart,
oil to make the face shine
    and bread to strengthen the human heart.
16 The trees of the field[f] are watered abundantly,
    the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.
17 In them the birds build their nests;
    the stork has its home in the fir trees.
18 The high mountains are for the wild goats;
    the rocks are a refuge for the coneys.
19 You have made the moon to mark the seasons;
    the sun knows its time for setting.
20 You make darkness, and it is night,
    when all the animals of the forest come creeping out.
21 The young lions roar for their prey,
    seeking their food from God.
22 When the sun rises, they withdraw
    and lie down in their dens.
23 People go out to their work
    and to their labor until the evening.

24 O Lord, how manifold are your works!
    In wisdom you have made them all;
    the earth is full of your creatures.
25 There is the sea, great and wide;
    creeping things innumerable are there,
    living things both small and great.
26 There go the ships
    and Leviathan that you formed to sport in it.

27 These all look to you
    to give them their food in due season;
28 when you give to them, they gather it up;
    when you open your hand, they are filled with good things.
29 When you hide your face, they are dismayed;
    when you take away their breath, they die
    and return to their dust.
30 When you send forth your spirit,[g] they are created,
    and you renew the face of the ground.

31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
    may the Lord rejoice in his works—
32 who looks on the earth and it trembles,
    who touches the mountains and they smoke.
33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
    I will sing praise to my God while I have being.
34 May my meditation be pleasing to him,
    for I rejoice in the Lord.
35 Let sinners be consumed from the earth,
    and let the wicked be no more.
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
Praise the Lord!

More population control climate change activism by the Left:

How European elites think about the rest of us:

Doomsday “Democracy!”

We the People of the Left, in Order to form a more perfect Coalition of power by any means necessary, establish ad hoc social justice, discourage election integrity as voter suppression, provide for our media defense, promote overall dependency, and secure the trappings of power to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this “Democracy!” for the United States of America.

This unwritten and yet fleshed out preamble constitutes what governs the Left. It explains the stolen 2020 election. The Left thereby gained the means to weaponize the Dept. of Justice against concerned parents of school children and questioners of election integrity, disrupt domestic Tranquility with cashless bail and a wide-open border, provide for the Left’s self-defense, promote authoritarian agendas leading to ever increasing loss of liberty, and secure the Left’s place in power with fear-mongering narratives.

We’ve all heard the COVID and climate change doomsday narratives urging us to conform or else. I won’t repeat them here. Now comes the doomsday “Democracy!” narrative: “our entire democracy is now at risk”.

The so-called “scholars of democracy” in the link above warn that Republican-led states are proposing or implementing “radical changes” to election laws. Nothing could be further from the truth. This false narrative is total projection. It is the democrat secretaries of state that have radicalized elections laws, by-passing them to favor Democrat candidates. Republicans want to simply enforce the laws that are on the books and clean up voter rolls. The dead and non-existent are not legitimate voters.

These media “scholars” want National Voting and Election Administration Standards. They have no need for the states. Everything for these tenured narrative-drooling “scholars” is to be federalized so that the power grabbing Left can secure it place in power. Of course, the puffed-up demonic Hillary Clinton, weighed in with her dire prediction:

“We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy, and everything that everybody else cares about then goes out the window.” . . . “Look, the most important thing is to win the next election. The alternative is so frightening that whatever does not help you win should not be a priority.”

Clinton has repeatedly claimed the 2016 election was stolen from her. But now she has no problem calling out “election deniers”. Clinton also accused Republicans of plotting to steal the 2024 presidential election in the future. So, we are being set up.

Here’s an alarmist rant from another delusional Leftist:

The governing principle at work in the Leftist preamble precludes a concern about anyone else’s welfare. The principle concerns itself solely with power – obtaining it and maintaining it. Period. This attitude is glaringly obvious in Joe Biden’s recent Union Station speech.

Did you hear any mention about inflation, about gas and diesel prices, about the open border and the 98 individuals on the terror watchlist caught on the border, about fentanyl deaths, about increasing crime? No. It was about threats to the “Democracy!”  only the Left ordains and establishes.

Here’s Tucker Carlson’s take on Joe Biden’s doomsday “Democracy!” speech and election interference:

Biden’s speech, given with him dangling the “Democracy!” carrot 37 times, was anything but “We the People” inclusive. It was a snide divisive harangue directed at those of us who question election integrity. And, it was an obvious CYA setup. When things go badly for the Left on Tuesday, they can blame it on a stolen election and on “extremist” MAGA supporters. They might throw in “racism” and “white supremacy” as causes but climate change as a cause would be a bit difficult. They’ll say anything but blame themselves.

With the doomsday “Democracy!” narrative in place, the Left will say “I told you so”. Just wait and see.

 . .. for the writing’s on the Union Station walls and tenement halls – Democrat’s days are numbered. They have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.

*****

Need I remind you? With stolen power, the authoritarian Left – Democrats, Progressives, Anti-white segregationists, Unicorians, socialists, globalists just to name a few – took over life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We were told to march to the beat of their drum and not our own.

Need I remind you? The Left shut down schools, churches, and businesses, and opened wide the border, liquor stores and any place where lottery tickets are sold.

Need I remind you of Intolerable Inflation, Illegal Immigration, and Immoral Injections?

Need I remind you that since the Left took over, Russia invaded Ukraine, North Korea began firing missiles and China is preparing to invade Taiwan.

Our Retirements Gone? Where Did the 21 Trillion Go? | Columnists | thedesertreview.com

As anyone making a tight family budget knows, there are only two ways to balance it. The first is to increase income. The second is to decrease spending. Unfortunately, Catherine Austin Fitts says our government chose the latter to solve the Social Security problem. However, instead of reducing spending, they decided to lower life expectancies by increasing the death rates of senior citizens.

Not All Roads Lead Home

In truth, all through the haunted forest there could be nothing more frightful than the figure of Goodman Brown.

Before the Technicolor fairy tale of a quartet of troubled characters trekking through a foreboding forest hoping to gain what they lack from the “great and powerful” Self-Gnosis (The Wizard of OZ), there is a tale of a young man taking a similar journey. And though there is no fear of “lions and tigers and bears” in this tale, there is “What if the devil himself should be at my very elbow!”.

It seems to me that both tales are about journeys into the dark side – the nocturnal forest – to look for an esoteric mystical experience that would supply what is missing. But unlike the “There’s no place like home” heartening ending of the OZ tale, we find in the second tale that those who covenant to journey into the forest and the deepest darkest part of it, come home disillusioned and faithless.

Often, especially in our youth, we begin to question the religious beliefs and worldviews of our families, of our mentors and of those around us. We see hypocrisy around us and despise it and yet become two-faced in our own sought out experiences wrought in the dark. We then begin to take on ambivalence about evil, giving ourselves the ‘grace’ to operate in both good and evil ways. Moral relativism is that form of grace.

We tell ourselves that there are people who are restrictive, conservative and Puritanical – “They don’t know me.”. We tell ourselves that we have become too worldly-wise to be like them: “I have Jesus. I’m above all that narrow-minded out-of-date conventionalism. I’m the progressive sort.” So, we journey into the dark forest, into the deepest darkest part of the forest, and think ourselves to be impervious to whatever lurks there. With each step we tell ourselves “I am only seeking understanding”.

We give ourselves permission to investigate the dark side. We say to ourselves “I will do it just one time. Why be left out?  Why not join the “communion of our race””? Thus, we journey into the night and encounter evil. And like Goodman Brown, in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1835 short story by the same name, we come home disillusioned, our faith destroyed.

Young Goodman Brown sets out one night to gain existential insight into good and evil. The story, set in 17th century Puritan New England, operates within the Puritan context of sin, grace and unconditional salvific election. I consider the tale an allegory, as it employs symbols starting with the names Goodman and Faith.

In the tale before us, Goodman Brown leaves his saintly wife Faith at the threshold of their home. She is wearing a pink ribbon on her cap. The pink ribbon, mentioned throughout, I read as a symbol of the admixture of purity (white) and sin (red). The color speaks to Goodman Brown’s spiritual understanding based on his Puritan beliefs and also to his rose-colored romance-based naiveté about the nature of evil.

“Poor little Faith!” thought he, for his heart smote him. “What a wretch am I to leave her on such an errand! She talks of dreams, too. Methought as she spoke there was trouble in her face, as if a dream had warned her what work is to be done tonight. But no, no; ‘t would kill her to think it. Well, she’s a blessed angel on earth; and after this one night I’ll cling to her skirts and follow her to heaven.”

With this excellent resolve for the future, Goodman Brown felt himself justified in making more haste on his present evil purpose. He had taken a dreary road, darkened by all the gloomiest trees of the forest, which barely stood aside to let the narrow path creep through, and closed immediately behind. It was all as lonely as could be; and there is this peculiarity in such a solitude, that the traveller knows not who may be concealed by the innumerable trunks and the thick boughs overhead; so that with lonely footsteps he may yet be passing through an unseen multitude.

As Goodman sets out, he does so under the cover of night and the cover of assumption: as a Puritan, Goodman Brown considers himself one of the elect. He carries with him a Puritan/Calvinist ‘good hands’ insurance card – the doctrine of predestination. He doesn’t leave home without it. And, as you read above, Goodman assumes that his association with the right people – his wife Faith in particular and the town’s good church folk in general – that he will follow them to the heavenly home. Goodman Brown goes out into the portentous night feeling safe and secure from all alarms. But his predetermined confidence quickly melts away as soon as he steps into the mysterious dark woods.

He had taken a dreary road, darkened by all the gloomiest trees of the forest, which barely stood aside to let the narrow path creep through, and closed immediately behind. It was all as lonely as could be; and there is this peculiarity in such a solitude, that the traveller knows not who may be concealed by the innumerable trunks and the thick boughs overhead; so that with lonely footsteps he may yet be passing through an unseen multitude.

Goodman’s first encounter in the woods is an old man who reminds him of his goodly grandfather. The old man appears to be waiting for Goodman. He says, “You are late, Goodman Brown.” Goodman replies “Faith kept me back awhile”.

Though the old man appears similar to Brown in many pedestrian ways the old man also appears to have “an indescribable air of one who knew the world”. And there’s something else Goodman notices and tries to explain away.

But the only thing about him that could be fixed upon as remarkable was his staff, which bore the likeness of a great black snake, so curiously wrought that it might almost be seen to twist and wriggle itself like a living serpent. This, of course, must have been an ocular deception, assisted by the uncertain light.

It is clear to the reader that the old man is the devil who is supported by the serpent staff, He does his best to entice Goodman Brown down the road to what is later called “the communion of your race” where he will learn of the “secret deeds” of his fellow townsfolk and see hypocrisy countenanced.

Goodman balks, claiming to be one of a breed of men who is above the riff-raff.

“Too far! too far!” exclaimed the goodman, unconsciously resuming his walk. “My father never went into the woods on such an errand, nor his father before him. We have been a race of honest men and good Christians since the days of the martyrs; and shall I be the first of the name of Brown that ever took this path and kept—”

Goodman’s journey away from faith is stop and go as wrestles with the temptation of going on. He encounters something he initially resists and uses the honor of his good name and of those before him as a reason to rethink things before giving on to going on. But, he doesn’t use his faith as a shield and so bends in to temptation. He continues his journey with the old man’s urging.

The old man tries to persuade Goodman to get up and continue. He does so by using Goodman’s own argument. The old man conjures up a kinship with men like Goodman. He lies about having personal knowledge and acquaintance of Goodman’s family. He then speaks of townsfolk – deacons and those in power – as personal references. He cajoles Goodman to continue their ‘association’ by journeying on.

Goodman Brown once considered himself impervious to all the devil’s wiles. After all he was one of the elect and associated with the right people. But each step he took in the wrong direction away from faith weakened his resolve. His compromises were reinforced by his inordinate curiosity. He continues his journey into the deepest darkest part of the forest and sees what the “communion of our race” so desires, “that the good shrank not from the wicked, nor were sinners abashed”.

There are several interpretations and critiques of the story. Some will say that Hawthorne is pointing out the hypocrisy of a society that prides itself on its high moral and civic standing and makes outcasts of those who do not live up to its standards. Other interpreters go out on a dark forest limb with their construal:

Modern critics have interpreted “Young Goodman Brown” in many ways. The story as a critique of society stands out to some. To psychologically inclined readers, Brown journeys into the psyche. The village represents the superego, whereas the forest and darkness become equivalents of the Freudian id. The entire story becomes a portrait of one human mind that discovers the usually suppressed and disquieting reality of animal instinct

The story’s symbols lend its meaning to a wide audience and to many interpretations. As you read it you will have your own takeaway. I consider it an allegory or parable about assumptions, hypocrisy and the lure of evil to pull one away from one’s home base of faith toward the “reality of animal instincts”.

The story doesn’t tell us Brown’s motives other than “present evil purpose” Conjecture would lead us to think that young Goodman Brown had become questioning about evil and the devil even though he lived surrounded by strict warnings against both in Puritan village. One gets the sense that Brown goes out by himself to just stick his nose in on evil for the sake of understanding the world he lives in and perhaps the fear of evil inculcated in him by his upbringing.

I have provided some of my take on Young Goodman Brown and some excerpts from the story with the hope that you will read the short story (it should take about fifteen minutes). I invite you to consider what road you are taking when you want to stick your nose in on evil. Consider where it leads and what you will encounter. And, where it will lead you. This road does not lead home.

We are told in Scripture to “test the spirits” so that we may know what is good and true and from God. That is not what is going on in Young Goodman Brown. Rather, this a young man who leaves faith behind and takes a walk on the wild side and ends up at a satanic ritual. His road did not lead back home to faith. It led to nihilism and despair and the resolve to no longer exist.

In truth, all through the haunted forest there could be nothing more frightful than the figure of Goodman Brown. On he flew among the black pines, brandishing his staff with frenzied gestures, now giving vent to an inspiration of horrid blasphemy, and now shouting forth such laughter as set all the echoes of the forest laughing like demons around him. The fiend in his own shape is less hideous than when he rages in the breast of man. Thus sped the demoniac on his course, until…

Well, you’ll just have to read the story:

Altered States

“Technique has penetrated the deepest recesses of the human being. The machine tends not only to create a new human environment, but also to modify man’s very essence. The milieu in which he lives is no longer his. He must adapt himself, as though the world were new, to a universe for which he was not created. He was made to go six kilometers an hour, and he goes a thousand. He was made to eat when he was hungry and to sleep when he was sleepy; instead, he obeys a clock. He was made to have contact with living things, and he lives in a world of stone. He was created with a certain essential unity, and he is fragmented by all the forces of the modern world.”
― Jacques EllulThe Technological Society

The term technique, as I use it, does not mean machines, technology, or this or that procedure for attaining an end. In our technological society, technique is the totality of methods rationally arrived at and having absolute efficiency (for a given stage of development) in every field of human activity. Its characteristics are new; the technique of the present has no common measure with that of the past.

― Jacques EllulThe Technological Society

In his Substack post What did Jacques Ellul mean by Technique? , Samuel Eastlund adds a fourth foundational element to the three mentioned in Ellul’s “technique” definition above:

“Technique is one of the spiritual powers (Col. 1:16, Eph. 6:12) which controls the modern world, which people give their allegiance to and which keeps them in bondage.”

Eastlund continues . . . “As David Gill puts it in his comparison between Ellul and Francis Schaeffer, ‘What is significant and ominous today is that technique itself (rationality, artificiality, efficiency) has become universal, autonomous, and self-automated’. One of the gods of the modern world is efficiency; it is a presupposition of the way we do things that the more efficient something is, the better it is. This becomes obvious when engaging in a discussion about Technique with those not already opposed to it.”

*David W. Gill, Jacques Ellul and Francis Schaeffer: Two Views of Western Civilisation, p. 11

I’m becoming a neo-Luddite of sorts. I have a particular dislike for the dissociative and diminution effects of the digital age and particularly as technology modifies the means of relating to ourselves, to those around us – to our world.

Born into analog times, I enjoyed a continuous stream of organic information that fostered a holistic perspective. During childhood in the 50s and into the 60s, I received information, or better, life in continuously variable physical quantities. I stayed outdoors until it was dark. I rode my bike everywhere. I played with kids – German, Italian, Mexican, Polish and others – on my block. I walked to the library to look up things. With my allowance in hand, I ran to the Five and Dime to see what I could buy. I read the Sunday comics on the front room floor. I watched Howdy Doody, Captain Kangaroo and Lassie on a B&W rabbit-eared tube-filled box. I played 45s on a turntable in my bedroom. I played table games with friends from school and the neighborhood. I attended church. I listened to AM radio on a transistor radio. I learned to play the trumpet.

In high school I played my horn in the band, orchestra and church. I ran cross country and track. I studied French for four years and got into the NHS my senior year. During the summers I worked and took summer school courses. I wasn’t a spectator.

My analog life was harmonized within the perceived analog universe of light, color, sound, force, wind, rain, and seasons. And like a camera and cassette recorder, my analog brain captured a continuous stream of organic information from the real world. I was my own screen saver . . . and social media and Google search.

Those were times before “technique” “penetrated”, “modified”, and atomized life into efficient bits and bytes. Technology didn’t dominate. Like the phone on the wall and the record player, objects were just another thing among many other things. Objects were there to serve, not dominate. I could dial down interest in a thing, walk away, and move on to the more interesting organic things.

In contrast to 0’s and 1’s trying to emulate analog life and the annoying apps with their prompts, pop-ups, and passwords, analog times seemed natural, unintrusive, and rather hassle-free. Digital technology, as it relates to human interface, comes across as contrived and as pushy as a foot-in-the-door salesman and damn frustrating in its effort to achieve maximum efficiency. Add dismissive of your concerns.

In contrast to the soulless 0’s and 1’s programmed to contain life like the characterless pre-fab concrete industrial buildings that contain employees, my childhood was a multi-dimensional free-range human life. I lived life at the speed of life and not at the speed of sound.

Come to think of it, I never swore until I started dealing with computers, hand-held and otherwise, and software. And, even with growing up with talk of a U.S. and Russia nuclear war, I was never alarmed about my times and my country until the rise of That Hideous Strength the technocratic state. The spirit of the age could be felt in the analog times, but now I sense that the spirit of the age is oppressive through technological means.

Consider that technology may have “penetrated the deepest recesses of the human being”. The signs of spiritual oppression include

  • a fixation on depression
  • confusion
  • fear, anxiety
  • isolation
  • compulsive thoughts, feeling and behavior
  • abnormal medical problems

*****

You live as long as I have (70 yrs.) and you see how technology has modified human existence. Human interaction, for instance.

Every morning I work out at the fitness center in the complex where I live. I arrive 5:30 AM. I am usually the only one there at that time.

As is her habit, a young woman comes into the fitness center about an hour later. She walks over to the treadmill looking at her phone the whole time. She has not once looked up and looked over at me to acknowledge me. She’s in a world of her own.

*****

To be sure, I am not a technophobe. I have worked as an engineer for most of my life. I am currently working on improving substation communications for a large utility. I see good uses of technology every day including the recent NASA test: diverting of an asteroid. Technology has its place as a servant of mankind and not as its master.

Well, I’ve given my thoughts. What’s your relationship with digital technology? Has it penetrated and modified your life and to what limit?

Does technology – 4K UHD TV, autonomous vehicles, 5G, esc. – deliver organic value to you? Do the bells and whistles of new technology make life more meaningful?

Are you OK spending time on passwords and renewing passwords and renewing passwords and two-step authentication and One-Time Passcodes. Are you OK paying for cyber security and renewing cyber security and VPNs and renewing VPN software and updates and updates and updates?

Are you worried about being hacked?

Are you worried about your livelihood being held for ransom?

As I am writing this, I received a text message alert from my employer: Cyberattack Impacting Critical Infrastructure. IT Security team received numerous ransomware alerts. The system that hosts the virtual servers in our environment was compromised. It was apparent someone had actively taken over the system and changed the credentials to block access.  All systems were shut down at headquarters and offices with data centers.

Of course, normal business is affected. Production has slowed to almost a halt. The “fix” will be expensive. Modern technology with its propensity for “technical efficiency and systemization” can also be used for disruption, chaos and loss of income.

How do you find interfacing with machines? Does an App give you a sense of control, of power, when you punch in inputs and the device ‘replies’ with a programmed message to your commands?

Are you OK inputting to an algorithm and receiving a canned response?

Do you get the sense using a digital device that you are being programmed and used by it?

Are you OK giving out your digital ID and having your data mined and surveilled by Big Tech, Big Brother, and China?

Are you OK with software tracking your online patterns and then using the data to manipulate and increase your engagement with a product or service?

Are you OK being monitored online night and day? Have you watched The Lives of Others?

Are you wondering if you said something ‘wrong’ online and the FBI will show up at your door?

Are you OK with digital cops? Researchers experimenting with concept of a ‘digital cop’ (wnd.com)

Are you OK with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc. censoring your speech based on a politically-biased algorithm?

Do you find interfacing with machines to be off-putting, alienating, impersonal?

Are you OK spending most of your day interfacing with a device? Looking at a screen?

Do you prefer dealing with devices instead of people?

Are you OK dealing with Chat Bots when you have questions?

Can’t get enough of CGI?

Will you accept becoming an AI product of an algorithm in the post-human world of transhumanism?

Would you be OK with an implanted microchip vaccine passport?

Would you be OK with transhumanists replacing eternal “life in the ages to come” with digital immortality?

Will you be OK with digital currency and the monitoring and control of your finances?

Are you OK with a global technocracy that monitors your behavior and arbitrates your social credit score?

Are you OK with RFR (Radiofrequency Radiation) affecting your body, your brain?

Check this out: Well Being: Dangers of 5G – by Robert W Malone MD, MS (substack.com)

Adverse effects observed at exposures below the assumed threshold SAR include non-thermal induction of reactive oxygen species, DNA damage, cardiomyopathy, carcinogenicity, sperm damage, and neurological effects, including electromagnetic hypersensitivity. Also, multiple human studies have found statistically significant associations between RFR exposure and increased brain and thyroid cancer risk. Yet, in 2020, and in light of the body of evidence reviewed in this article, the FCC and ICNIRP reaffirmed the same limits that were established in the 1990s.

Malthusiasts:

Thomas Malthus believed that so-called “positive checks” (such as plagues and starvation) and “preventive checks” (such as birth control measures and delayed marriage), worked to keep population growth and food growth in balance.

The Left, as prompted by the Davos/WEF elites, are similarly concerned about population growth. That is why they promote the “positive” checks of pandemics and the “preventive checks” of abortion, homosexuality, and mutilating children in the name of affirmation.

In An Essay on the Principle of Population, neo-Malthusians [the authors] tells us what they think is required to make their anti-growth philosophy work:

“organized evasive action: population control, limitation of material consumption, redistribution of wealth, transitions to technologies that are environmentally and socially less disruptive than today’s, and movement toward some kind of world government”

Man diverts asteroid: NASA tested a new planetary defense mechanism by crashing the robotic Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) spacecraft into Dimorphos, a small asteroid spanning about 170 meters across. Protecting our Earth from potential future impacts was the impetus to take action.


Man deigns to keep the lights on: France’s Macron announced the restarting of 10 idle nuclear plants in the coming weeks. Also announced, plans to build up to 14 new nuclear reactors. Action is being taken to provide a buffer against volatile energy prices and to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Man develops CO2 capture projects: Five carbon capture projects in the U.S. and a host of others will act to remove carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the atmosphere These projects endeavor to store the CO₂ deep underground or put it to some use.

Man defaces sunflowers: Two members of Just Stop Oil vandalized Sunflowers, a Vincent Van Gogh painting at the National Gallery in London. The two vandals then proceeded to take glue sticks, rub them onto their hands, and place their glued hands on the wall next to the painting. Action was taken that but this blow might be the be-all and the end-all of oil production. (Sorry Sorry Day.)

Boost the Truth and Nothing but the Truth

The video below – Uniformed Consent – is an in-depth and candid look into the Covid 19 narrative, who’s controlling it, and how it’s being used to inject an untested, new technology into almost every person on the planet. The narrative is not about the virus. It’s about the vaccine.

From my perspective, I witnessed mass communication platforms via digital technology boost the narrative, the agenda, the mandates, the lies, the censorship, the tracking, and ultimately the experimental mRNA vaccine into humans. The media, sponsored by big pharma, facilitated the formation of fear and psychosis. The public was to fear COVID, fear alternative voices and medicines, and fear what would happen if non-compliant. Fear and more fear and fear on top of fear was generated, as were compliance slogans. The vaccine was and is touted as the “safe and effective” solution (“You need not fear if you do what you are told”.).

Problem reaction solution.

Do no harm . . . people dropping dead . . . from the vaccine.

Boost the Truth and Nothing but the Truth so Helped by God.

Digitalization: The Spirit of the Age

“Community digitalization holds unprecedented promise. The tools, values, and organizational paradigms that constitute and follow from digitalization enable human enterprise to be organized better, differently.” 

“The promise of digitalization won’t be realized automatically; it will require a massive collaboration across societal stakeholders.”

Bas Boorsma, quoted above, offers the promise of a better tomorrow by fostering digital enablement of our communities. His words can be found on a Thunderbird School of Global Management webpage.

There, Boorsma, professor of practice and author of the revised and well-intentioned New Digital Deal: Beyond Smart Cities. How to Best Leverage Digitalization for the Benefit of our Communities tells us that if we were “to focus on collaboration, strategy, and vision – and forge the rudiments of a New Digital Deal” it would “help us mitigate the current [COVID] crisis as well as the ones that will follow, and to ensure the societal resilience and well-being of tomorrow.”

Elsewhere, Boorsma specs out 20 Building Blocks of Successful Community Digitalization with an imperative that “Connectivity, solutions, architectures, cyber security and data need to be managed comprehensively in order for a community to not end up stuck in silos and to be sufficiently future ready” .

Looking past the “unprecedented promise” of community digitization and “the Art of Connecting Everything” to the implications for end users, would community digitalization be a blessing or a bane?

What “values and organizational paradigms” would follow from digitalization? Do they come from the collaborative “societal stakeholders”? Would “human enterprise be organized better, differently” via community digitalization? By whose standard?

What power does community digitalization give to collaborative “societal stakeholders”? Could such power corrupt them? Could absolute community digitalization corrupt them absolutely? If none of these inquiries concern you, these questions should at least alert the reader to the specter of technological control not only of public space but also of private space. This is the agenda of the technocrats and stakeholders of the World Economic Forum and their Great Reset.

One would expect a School of Global Management to promote a unified theory of world digitization. One would also expect such a school to concern itself with making sure that the world in crisis mode can count on digital technology that is not compromised by digital divides and digital disruptions.

From the webpage:

Digitalization (also called digitization) has become increasingly important through the COVID-19 pandemic as people rely even more heavily on digital technologies to stay connected, informed, and safe. The pandemic has also highlighted how vulnerable many systems are across society. Even in wealthy nations like the US, many communities, governments, hospitals, and schools were underprepared to leverage technology to deal with the pandemic.

From an end user perspective, during the aforementioned “crisis” you and I were locked down and forced to rely on digital devices to relate to the world. Along with communities, governments, hospitals, and schools, we received orders and instructions from the commissars of COVID scientism. Crisis-leveraged communication technology was well-prepared to disseminate societal divides and disruptions.

Federal and state mandates fragmented communities, decoupling associations within work, church, family and the neighborhood. People were driven to their devices – to community digitalization – wherein the focus was on one small thing – COVID. With one voice, mass communication platforms via digital technology delivered constant fear porn and repeated promptings.

End users were coached to fear COVID with words like “deadly virus” and “pandemic”. They were lectured over and over to fear alternative voices and alternative medicines and to cling to the state and pharma-sponsored authorities. To sustain fear, the media deployed data gathered from pan-digital sources. COVID case numbers and deaths were posted in the corner of a news screen and dribbled across chyrons. COVID commissars, obsessed with party loyalty, supplied the media with repeated promptings and slogans such as “Flatten the curve” “We’re in this together” “Get the vaccination” “Wear a mask”.

With one voice, mass communication platforms via digitalization delivered mass formation psychosis to the end user.

 . . . the corona crisis was primarily a psycho-social phenomenon that marked the transition to a technocratic system, a system in which the government would attempt to claim decision-making rights over its citizens and, step by step, take control of all private space.  -Professor Dr. Mattias Desmet  The Psychology of Totalitarianism 

Humiliations galore! That and more are the implications of community digitalization made manifest during the recent “crisis”.

We learned of the push toward technological tracking and tracing of populations. Of digital vaccine passports. And of the digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record (DCVR). You save it on your phone and use it as proof of vaccination wherever you go.

Consider the coming digitized social credit score, a social ranking generated via social media databases. Data showing your will to conform to the globalist directives will determine whether you are in or out of the stakeholder society. An algorithm, not personal knowledge, will determine whether you are ‘worthy’ of access to a host of things and even worthy of buying a car, a home and even groceries.

In tandem with a digital credit score, digital currency will replace anonymous cash. The Biden regime is already moving in that direction. Community digitization will make it possible for societal stakeholders to know your every purchase along with monitoring and censuring “unacceptable” speech and behavior.

Digitization, via apps, AI, smart devices, cameras, and satellites, will monitor and control finances, spending, energy use, vaccine status, and conversations. End users will be monitored night and day.

One can expect a swarm of digital “influencers” – decimators of globalist propaganda.

One can expect more stolen elections where machines are involved.

One can expect the “everything” app from transhumanism accelerant Elon Musk.

One can be expected to be treated like data, like a stream of bits needing to be directed, and not as a human. Dehumanization is a product of digitization. The digital world is flippant and shallow and without regard for the human using it. I don’t want a digital ID and a relationship with another digital ID. I don’t want simulated reality.

One can expect the relationship of parents and children to be further separated by digital technology.

If digitization is omnipresent and technology is leveraged, what do you think the World Economic Forum dominionists will do with One World community digitalization? One can readily see, based on the recent COVID mass formation experience, that digital communication systems are able to focus worldwide attention on a manufactured “crisis”. And with each “crisis”, social engineering of the “you-have-no-choice” totalitarian order follows.

Climate change is the crisis du jour. This “crisis” is being leveraged through digital communications. End users are being forced to make sacrifices for a green agenda meant to stave off a climate crisis that many scientists say doesn’t even exist. The green agenda is bringing about a global recession and famine.

Keep in mind that the same people who want to digitize your life want to track your every move – on the web and physically. They want to monitor your purchases, your thoughts, and your associations which might lead to pre-crime. Show them the man and they’ll show you the crime.

Keep in mind these same people also promote lock downs, vaccine passports, open borders, abortions, bail-less release of criminals, antifa, BLM, gender confusion, homosexuality, CRT, queer theory and redistribution.

With total interconnectivity, end users can expect total subjugation to the spirit of the age. Think Big Brother and the Ministry of Truth and Ministry of Love as depicted in Orwell’s 1984. End users can also expect to be subjected to evil machinations akin to organizations such as N.I.C.E. depicted in C.S. Lewis’ That Hideous Strength.

As for me and my devices, we will not follow the spirit of the age. We are already well-connected.

And the Searcher of Hearts knows what the spirit is thinking, because the spirit pleads for God’s people according to God’s will. – the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Roman church 8:27

Ah, the promise of a better tomorrow with a New Digital Deal today. Where have I heard of a New Deal before? Oh yes. It was involved in mitigating another crisis, a crisis created and sustained by the government – the Great Depression. (Download Great Myths of the Great Depression pdf below for an overview of the causes of the Great Depression which include the government’s disastrous manipulation of the money supply via Keynesian economic theory and its terrible interventionist policies. Déjà vu all over again today.)

One of the green agenda WEF globalists:

The Time Has Arrived

In a recent post remembering Queen Elizabeth II, I asked “Please let me know if you know of any other such female public figure today.”  Queen Elizabeth II symbolized the good, the stalwart, the faithful. She was a touchstone for basic human decency, for her country, and for the Christian faith.

At her Coronation in 1953, The Queen was anointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. She took an oath to “maintain and preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of England, and the doctrine worship, discipline, and government thereof, as by law established in England”.

Though she was the head of the Church of England, Queen Elizabeth acted and spoke with secular common sense.

Has another formative and no-nonsense woman come on the scene? Apparently. The Leftist media thinks so and is terrified. The media, with one voice, labels her “far right”, “fascist”, “Mussolini”.

This woman, Italy’s first female prime minster, speaks in clarion terms of the family, of preserving the good, of basic human decency, and of Italy-centered nationalism. She doesn’t speak globalist gobbledygook. She speaks in human terms and with secular common sense.
