The Pope vs. Capitalism

The White Witch-Doctor of Collectivism

Pope Francis is a total Socialist. This keeps coming up in the sick Shibboleth of internet media. I know it’s stupid but it bothers me so much finally I wrote something. 

This came during a brief speech before world leaders at the U.N. “Agencies, Funds and Programmes” group May 2014 where Francis called for “equitable development” by the aforementioned means. His full comments go like this:

I do not hesitate to state . . . that equitable economic and social progress can only be attained by joining scientific and technical abilities with an unfailing commitment to solidarity accompanied by a generous and disinterested spirit of gratuitousness at every level. A contribution to this equitable development will also be made both by international activity aimed at the integral human development of all the world’s peoples and by the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society.

This fact alone –  that it’s coming from the Pope – that alone should make you doubt and questions it. Let me first state the obvious: This guy isn’t going hunger and lives in an elite community inside high walls sitting on a mountain of ‘acquired’ wealth.

So, the Pope vs Capitalism. You might just as well say, the Pope vs. Freedom, the Pope vs. Liberty. Because that’s what Capitalism means – freedom in the realms of markets and individual exchanges of value. 

You see, basically All the practices from the Catholic Church come from the Dark ages – age where there was no concept of liberty, and freedom was only a dream for the afterlife –  and for the most part their practices are only slightly modified, if modified at all, for modern people. And though modern academics try to dress it up, socialism at its core is just another primitive dark-ages ideology. One central authority – a King, emperor or pharaoh – takes the property and capital from everyone and then divvys it back out however he sees fit. The Catholic Church was basically in competition with Kings and states for the ultimate authority here. And the history of Europe for a good 2000 years was simply the story of the struggle between church and state.

After the Enlightenment, we started to have an actual separation of church and state. And this opened the door for all these other things like the eradication of slavery in the West, and free markets where even an average Joe can own property and carve his own destiny. But then the power of the state began to grow and grow, until here we are today, on the verge of a global government system fully blessed and sanctified by Pope Francis.

That’s why he’s telling us the state should be in charge of redistributing wealth. And again, no conspiracy here – that’s what Pope Francis literally said. I think if you’re one who follows the LHP – the way of he who “questions all things”, you have to question globalization and wealth redistribution, especially if it’s being fully embraced and encouraged by the global leader of the Christian world.

Now, even if you said to me “I know we need to have regulation of free markets, capitalism and freedom are just too dangerous” I would still implore you not to accept and not to internalize this utterance from the world’s most powerful (and evil) white magician, the chief witchdoctor of mechanical obedience and subservience. Why shouldn’t you endorse him? Because of the danger of producing an internal contradiction.

Now this is an initiatory idea that’s been presented by many great Magi. Aleister Crowley talked in Magic in Theory and Practice talked about how in order to represent the Godhead, you must take on all qualities of the principle, and excise from your presence everything that contradicts it.

The Book of Coming Forth by Night talks about order in and of the self, distinct from the Cosmic order or the confused and fitful presence of HarWer. Gurdjieff, talks about this in terms of False Personalities, and that one’s personalities can come in conflict with each other.

You see, really strong ideas like these – like capitalism, freedom, and slavery – when internalized can literally create new personalities within the self. If you have one personality that thinks Freedom is absolute, and then another personality that thinks freedom should be limited or regulated by a Central Authority, well these two I’s are going to be in conflict with each other. And when that happens we create buffers; buffers are like partitions between your personalities. Like cubicles in the office space of our psyche. Buffers help keep us from seeing these contradictions – because if we could see all our contradictions all at once, we’d probably have a total breakdown. Certainly we couldn’t keep on going the way we are and we’d have to change something. A lot of initiation actually comes down to this – trying to see the self as it is, with all its contradictions. And in that moment of seeing, something higher within us might for a moment awaken.

In Medieval Times it was the Catholic Priesthood telling people they were needed to protect them from some nebulous evil – the evil of the freedom to do what you want with your body, property and destiny. Then the Enlightenment came and we managed to shake them off for a while. But then the White Witchdoctors returned in the form of Socialists, Progressives, Politicians and Bureaucrats, here to protect you from the evil of Capitalism – the evil of the freedom to do what you want with your body, property, and destiny.

I say we don’t get fooled again.
