Why To Kill God: Because Deicide Will Help Limit Wealth Absolutely

January 28, 2019

Humanity, the genus Homo, did well for 5 million years without God. Finding food, water, and surviving were good enough deities to get the genus Homo’s psychology by.

But now we have individuals going around, proclaiming the absurdity of life (Camus and his ilk)… To find meaning, they need lions to show up, so they can think upright, and they don’t know it. They have become like sheep, as Christian propaganda insisted their were… whereas lions ran away from their distant ancestors. Running after lions was all the religion our ancestors needed, when they showed up.

If humanity is so ferocious, and self reliant, why would humanity have ever needed gods? Men were the gods.

Who needs gods? The difference is civilization, and, more precisely, its military aspect and the cancerous growth known as plutocracy.

When one is a tyrant, the last thing one needs is to have as subjects, men who believe they are gods… And this is true for bankers, today’s real gods, and they hide their malevolence behind their arrogant deluded little boys: Clinton, Major, Bliar Blair, Bush, Obama, Trump, Macron… And they half demented girls: Thatcher, Merkel, May…

Catholicism was invented and imposed by emperor (“Saint”) Constantine, and his tyrannical successors (in Arabic: caliphs). In turn, Catholicism was the proximal cause of the military collapse of the Roman state, without any question. Islam was a bellicose ideology of Muhammad which enabled him to seize Arabia. Muhammad’s two immediate successors, companions and accomplices, Abu Bakr and Umar were immediately capable of building a gigantic empire, thanks to that immensely ferocious religion. They crushed the Persian and Roman empires, in a few years. Believers in Islam believe they sit with god after death, if they fight for Islam, or Muhammad.

Don’t think it’s over: watch Indonesia, where Islam is creeping back everyday some more (the president there suggested recently to release the mastermind of Islamist terror there…)

***

Our ancestors at work: no need for Gods to chase cats. The story there is that the cheetahs were hunting impalas next to a dam. Jackals gave the alert, and baboons decided to encircle and then suddenly charge the cheetahs, to remove them from the premises…Baboons will act that way, even against lions. Our ancestors were expert at that, even 20 million years ago. I have met chimpanzees in lion territory with very few very small trees around, and they tried to frighten me (differently from the lions, who just went away).

Catholicism profited Roman Catholic plutocracy:

Those who think Catholicism didn’t bring the collapse of the Roman state should know the major facts (they don’t). It did, 100% (although the cause of Roman Catholicism itself was Roman military fascism, itself a consequence of plain old Roman financial fascism… for contemporary banks, see below).

In particular Roman Catholicism was proximally causal in the fall of the empire, when the Occidental part of the empire was led by Frankish generalissimo Arbogast. Arbogast had long been emperor in all but name. His Frankish nature prevented him (at the time) to be elected to the Purple. The emperor Theodosius had established terror decrees against “heretics” since 380 CE. Those led to the devastation of the empire’s intelligence, culture, libraries, books, spirits, and intellectuals… Let alone the Jews and whoever Theodosius wanted killed.

Arbogast tried to reestablish religious plurality, and civilizational sanity. So the Catholic fanatic, emperor Theodosius of the Oriental part, went to war. The mostly Frankish Roman army of the West got, barely, killed by Theodosius, thanks to a hurricane and the Goths, at the battle of the Frigidus river, September 5-6, 394 CE.

***

No More Western Roman Army… So Back to More Savage Franks:

Result? After Arbogast’s soldiers got killed at Frigidus, so was the Roman army in the West (although Germans were constantly attacking the Roman Germanias). Theodosius, sole emperor, died in 395 CE. Within six years, the government of bishops which by then led Rome, called onto (much less Romanized) Franks to protect the provinces of Gallia and the two Germanias; but in 406 CE, 12 years after the disaster at the Frigidus, Germanic nations broke through the Frankish curtain, and invaded the Western empire. In particular, the Vandals invaded all the way to Africa, et present day Tunisia. There they established a maritime empire, and blocked grain supplies to the gigantic city of Rome, and most of Italy. Rome fell to the Goths in 410 CE. Actually the king of the Goths, Aleric, had commanded the Gothic forces fighting the Romanized Franks at Frigidus. Small world: the eternal return of the same, just as bankers nowadays.

The government of bishops viewed those who were not fanatically Catholic, and obedient as heretics to be destroyed. They didn’t just destroy independent individuals, but the entire Republican organization, by destroying culture, libraries, books full of (non-Catholic) wisdom. The destruction, by torture, of individuals such as Hypatia and major libraries, such as the one in Alexandria are examples of this situation.

Less well known, is that the bishops forbade the death penalty. Thus highways were thereafter paralyzed by bandits: incarceration, besides slavery, was not possible in antiquity. Also plutocratic families (which often had a bishop) couldn’t be forced to pay taxes.

***

Catholicism and Islam were most profitable to the leaders claiming to “believe” in them during the Middle Ages:

Catholicism brought the collapse of the Roman empire in the West. The Franks, in the late Fifth Century, took over completely, and  reestablished the situation by reimposing a modicum of tolerance, and then a lot of innovations. And, first of all, mandatory secular education between the Sixth and Eighth centuries (generally uniquely attributed to Charlemagne, erroneously, as the fighting against the Papacy was during the Sixth Century). This Frankish spirit of overture and advancing civilization was weaponized to conquer Europe. Main events: elimination of the Goths, 507 CE, final colonization and domestication of the Saxons by Charlemagne in a 30 year war, 800 CE; reconquest of Britain and Southern Italy, Sicily, late Eleventh Century.

However, the conjugation of grievous Frankish civil war (Battle/massacre of Fontenoy) contemporaneous with multiple simultaneous deep invasions by Viking, Avars and Muslims, brought a disintegration of the empire. It’s not that the empire collapsed like the Assyrians in 614 BCE, or Nazi Germany in 1945. Instead, West Francia, exasperated by the military inefficiency of the empire, broke away from the rest, and then exploded in turn into around 60 states of diverse natures, through militaristic localization, also known as the Feudal Order.

Great lords of the Eleventh Century were plutocrats who would have been without justification for except the violence of their military feats… if not for the heavenly justification of violence by the Bible. Hence Bible god came back: a resurgence of terroristic, mysogynistic and pedophiliac Catholicism, starting around 1026 CE (when an entire religious establishment of a French city was burned alive by the Papacy… Crusades followed, two generations later…).  

***

So “god” provided the metaphysical backup for degenerating Roman plutocracy and the Feudal Order. What about more modern times? Why were Americans so Christian “god” obsessed?

***

God provided solace after giving reasons to eliminate the Natives:

The Bible is full of holocausts ordered by god, and king David is punished most horribly for refusing to destroy a nation: his son is tortured to death by god, over a week.

Hence, when the “Pilgrims” got to the New World, they extolled the riches of America (relative to Europe) to their kind left in Europe, urging them to come… And space the Pilgrims made by killing, enslaving and scalping the Natives: it was the Bible all over again: grabbing the “Promised Land”, by extermination of the preceding inhabitants…  

God enabled to do what Constantine or Muhammad, and their successors did with it; kill one’s opponents, because god ordered it. Falling asleep while the bankers make deals with Hitler, Franco, and their ilk? Indeed! Once one has eliminated the Natives (as was done in the Americas and Australia), what is left of the need for god? Acquiring the mentalities of lambs!

***

God as Daddy or Mummy for baby lambs:

For modern Americans God became just a guarantee of perpetual infancy. The god-thing obsession? If we please a superior being, we will do better, s/he will take care of us. In other words, babyhood, all over again.

***

Attali to the Rescue:

Before the US Revolution, many Americans believed in a much more natural form of divinity. It turns out that, when a deity dictate what is right and wrong, it’s actually “The Man” who decides what is right or wrong.

Now we have a more serious situation than pleasing The Man.

In particular, bankers are in command of the planet: Clinton, and then Obama made sure of it. Their rewards were colossal, and much appreciated by their tiny mind.

However, the times for gravitas has come. Jacques Attali, who is in very good position to know about bankers (he headed a totally major European bank, among many high level positions he had), warns us that a financial calamity, just like the preceding one, is around the corner.

See:

Democratic Illusion and Capitalist Cynicism

(I will write an essay on it, if I find the time…)

***

Attali says the bankers are back to industrial sized evil, worse than 2008. Why are the bankers back to their nefarious ways?

In part because Obama would finish all his discourses, certifying, like G. W. Bush, or Clinton, that “God bless America”. So the US lambs were satisfied, and have been bleating contently ever since. Their bankers’ boy, Obama, was excellent, as the color of his skin testified, they said, with characteristic, we-believe-in-bible-god psychology.

LIMIT WEALTH ABSOLUTELY: Elizabeth WARREN To The rescue:

(Ex-Harvard law professor) Senator Elizabeth Warren is running for president. To my surprised amazement, she rolled out her financial program last week: she proposes enormous taxes on the super wealthy. 2% of wealth above 50 millions, and even more, higher up.

Senator Warren’s wealth tax would be the way I would implement limiting wealth absolutely.

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2014/05/31/limit-wealth-absolutely/

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2018/12/28/limit-wealth-absolutely-ii-great-wealth-steers-elite-leadership-referendums-to-fix-it-all/

Let’s keep our cynical fingers crossed that Warren’s wealth tax is not just a trick to keep Sanders from running again…  (She used to be way milder, nearly timid…)

In France, Rothschild merger and acquisition banker Macron, another boy president, ignorant of all, but for manipulating the lambs, removed the wealth tax (the yellow jackets want it reinstated). That particular wealth tax was too restrictive, I say. But Macron said the wealthy French would then flee to other countries… like the USA. Well, with Warren as president that would be easily fixed…

The USA taxes worldwide already: so wealthy US citizens won’t be able to escape (all the more as the French Republic is also learning from US ways and means…)

And for that change of taxation, what do we need? We need for US citizens to realize they have been kept in infancy by their increasing plutocracy (“In God We Trust”, borrowed from the Nazi army, was installed in US minds by the US Congress only in 1954…)

For Americans to graduate from infancy, they need to reject “god” and go back to their revolutionary roots… which were decidedly secular, we have that secularism in writing, from the most official documents by the US Founding Fathers… Philosophical infancy was nice, but it’s all over, the lions of fate are onto us now.

Amen.

IMF: NSA Trojan Horse?

July 1, 2015

It is known the German government spied France, and her state of the art industries, on the behalf of the NSA (even the New York Times mentions it in “Germany, Too, Is Accused Of Spying On Friends“, “Another Spying Scandal In Germany…”). Gregor Gysi, a prominent German from the opposition Left party, accused Ms. Merkel of “treason.”Is Merkel’s government betraying some more? Such as deliberately sabotaging the Euro?

I am not making all of this up out of thin air, in a sudden attack of crazed conspiracy fever. Please consult that other leftist institution, the Wall Street Journal:

http://www.wsj.com/articles/german-government-is-accused-of-spying-on-european-allies-for-nsa-1430437603

“What is the IMF doing in this Greek mess? Wonders Jacques Attali, Jul 1, 2015. My thesis is simple:

Sarko l'Americain & Merkel, NSA Spy, Offer IMF Trojan Horse To Greeks

Sarko l’Americain & Merkel, NSA Spy, Offer IMF Trojan Horse To Greeks

The National Security Agency American spy, Angela Merkel, and the USA obsessed Sarkozy (Sarkozy’s brother worked for the Carlyle Group, a shadowy organization specializing in satanic investment in military procurement at the time; heading the Carlyle Group is the sort of dream job Obama can only dream of, when he graduates from the drone dispatching center he heads in a White House)

Attali observes:

“The Greek situation, in all its dimensions, has become more grotesque with every passing day, and more specifically in the last year, by the very negative and preposterous role the International Monetary Fund plays in this.

An observer from Mars landing on Earth this week would ask in astonishment how Europeans had allowed three non-European economists working for an institution dominated by the US, we have no idea who appointed them, to decide the fate of the euro!?”

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/what-imf-doing-greek-mess-jacques-attali

Jacques Attali is an important European, because of the judiciousness of his advice to many a European leader, and his heading various institutions and commissions (including one suggesting many reforms in France, few of which have been applied so far). Attali is also a classical symphonic conductor of international renown and practice. Attali was founding head of the European Investment Bank, a EU institution based in London, and close adviser to presidents Mitterrand, and Sarkozy.

Says Attali: …”the Eurogroup political leaders have allowed the IMF to creep in among the negotiators of all Greek debt… Attali notice that, whereas the Greek debt was strictly between Greece, the EU and the ECB, European leaders after a while decided they would not do anything without the IMF’s agreement.

Attali: “…when European experts came to realize that it was not by destroying the last resorts of Greek growth that their debt would be reduced, the so-called experts from the IMF, power crazy, continued to seek to impose suicidal savings on that country, without seeing that it will never be able to repay a debt that must be canceled urgently and in a formal way….

The only thing one would have hoped from the IMF, in this debacle, is that the Americans, on which it heavily depends upon, find a way to explain… the major geostrategic importance of Greek stability, and thus Greece continued participation in the eurozone. No, the Americans could not, or would not, do more than call the Greeks every day to ask them to surrender to the diktat of the IMF.

Attali thinks the IMF ought to be destroyed:

At a time when Asians are challenging the very existence of the Bretton Woods institutions, because they are not given their rightful place there, it is time for Europeans to question the sustainability of an institution that will be, if circumstances turn for the worse, really responsible for the tragedy that would follow a Greek default.

The solution, though, is simple, and the Europeans would have probably applied it a long time ago if the intellectual terrorism of the so-called IMF experts was not present: a reasonable savings plan, socially just, without requiring further assistance, but also with a reduction of the Greek debt to below 100% of GDP, through the cancellation of a significant part of public, bilateral and multilateral debts, that they all know cannot be reimbursed, and that some continue to claim, to save face. And for that, create urgently a genuinely European Monetary Fund, precursor of a Euro Treasury, and a Eurozone Ministry of Finance.”

All excellent observations, Jacques. The IMF is located less than half a mile from the White House. Christine Lagarde was already the head of one the world’s largest law firms, an American law firm, based in Chicago, long ago. She seems to be a professional figurehead, French looking, but actually simply an agent of the empire of the USA. Much of the European leadership seems to be in debt to the USA.

Consider the head of the European Central Bank: PhD MIT, vice-chairman at Goldman Sachs (as Mario Monti, an Italian PM). So what is the IMF doing inside the Eurozone governance? Making sure that individuals employed in and by Washington DC are in command. Of Europe: https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2015/06/29/selection-of-the-dirtiest/# The empire of the USA does not have any interest in a strong and independent Europe: healthy is what it wishes, yet dependent is what it requires. Dependence means submission, a lower status, fewer riches, more work, less comfort, no control of one’s destiny. It’s about making sure structures, institutions, which favor and select for the power and wealth of the USA are in place.

Europe Is Under Plutocratic Attack, Hence The Need For Union:

Some suggest that one cannot have a monetary union without a political union. That’s not correct. The Dollar is named after a currency, the “Thaler”, or “Tolar” (it has other names). The Tolar existed for centuries over much of Central Europe, without any political union. It was so famous that the currency of the USA is named after it.

So what is going on now? Why can’t the Eurozone survive without political union? The reason is simple: the USA’s establishment is hostile to the Euro (it’s trying its best, and succeeding, to hide its immense anger at the uppity Europeans, with their arrogant currency).

It looks like economics, but it’s all politics. Before Greece got in the European Union, Greece was controlled by colonels controlled by the USA. Many operators in the USA, those of the “Deep State”, the Wolvowitzs of the USA, would love to see Greece revert to full control of the USA. And that was probably the entire idea of putting the IMF inside the Eurozone.

Who asked for controlling Europe with the IMF? Germany, in 2010. At the same time, we learn that Germany acted like a spy on the French government, on behalf of the NSA (French and German governments are in very close, permanent contact).

So just like the NSA asked Germany to spy on France, did the NSA ask Germany to bring the IMF Trojan Horse inside Europe?

Americans have been programmed to say that “conspiracy theorists” are insane. Indeed. One has to be insane to expose the various conspiracies which insure USA dominance. USA plutocracy makes sure that it is dangerous, and not profitable.

https://patriceayme.wordpress.com/2013/06/07/plutophiles-grexit/

Europe has a social model that the owners of the USA, those who pay for American universities, find unbearable. That’s why they want to destroy it.

More prosaically and cautiously, Attali concludes that:

“Europeans, solve your problems among yourselves. Rely on your own forces alone. Do not give in to pressures or ways of thinking that came from across the Atlantic or the Pacific. Give yourself a project and take action. It really is about time you did.”

As the European elite has been put in place, or in power, or made rich, by American plutocracy, independence is not so easy to implement (Africa has long known this problem, the problem of the elite controlled by greater forces, a perfect illustration of which is Barack Obama himself).
