David Goldberg’s close friend and Project Zyphr whistle-blower, Tom (
email@example.com – This email was immediately shut down once it was posted, and Tom is working on getting a new email), has provided us an email update. (His latest videos include, “USA Genocide 2021-2025 A.D. – Project Zyphr & The End Game – PART 3” and “How to leave the USA Satanic Control Grid“)
Editor’s note: this article will be periodically updated as we receive new emails from Tom on various topics. The newest updates are posted last and bolded.
The following are quotes from a series of email exchanges shared between the Friends of David Goldberg and Tom over the past week:
1) “I can’t emphasize it enough: plan on getting out of the USA if you can. Nowhere in the continental U.S. is remotely safe. Alaska and Hawaii are only marginally safer due to their distance from the main hubs of control and operations. The hinterlands of Canada will offer some measure of safety due to their distance but they still fall under the control grid. They also have too much control in Mexico and if you’ve seen the news, the U.S. has made major inroads in economic and military relations with many Central American countries. Why? To expand Zyphr.”
2) “The USMCA is a total sellout, it’s worse than NAFTA. You’ll see Canada, USA and Mexico combined into one entity, ruled by an E.U.-style authority, which will happen during the economic collapse over a period of years. Now your freedom and national identity is completely gone, while right now you still have a few ounces of it left. Interestingly enough, in this scenario, Canada will still retain a certain level of sovereignty. You will see free travel between the USA and Mexico border, but it will remain very hard for Americans to immigrate to Canada. Even during the economic mess, this will remain in place and is by design.”
3) “A couple of new ops are underway, not sure their names. Watch for two things. You will see a new round of ‘predictions’ via many disinfo YouTube channels announcing dates and times, none of which are accurate. New warnings, nothing but them ‘crying wolf’ again. They are not telling you the real plans, which are Project Pogo and Zyphr. Not a single one is telling you to leave, that is how you know it is disinfo. The second thing to watch for is for world leaders and celebrities to release videos that appear to have been shot or filmed in the USA. They are not filmed there. This may be hard to spot. Many of the elites are moving to the Southern Hemisphere but will maintain a presence up north via fake videos or doubles in their place.”
4) “They are getting more brazen with the overt messaging. You are seeing more releases on Epstein, more hints and talk out of Hollywood about pedophilia, child sacrifice, and some celebrities fairly bold in their commitment to Satanism and the Illuminati. This is why you know the end is getting close, they’re totally unafraid to just put it in your face. It’s part conditioning, part arrogance.”
5) “People can’t get out of the USA because they’re economically strapped and mentally conditioned to never leave. So the steps to get out, I’ll try to provide some more of that in the next video. We’re going to talk about Gangstalking and Safe Zones, those will be the two themes. The simple steps to prepare include getting your passports, documents in order, selling everything you have, figuring out some kind of income stream or income source, researching Argentina, Paraguay, Chile, New Zealand, Tasmania, Western Australia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay. Stay the hell out of Brazil, though.”
6) “Western Europe is part of the control grid. They have underground bases there and the surveillance grid has expanded widely in the past few years. It’s going to be hit hard by the economic collapse, too. There are some safe spots. Remote parts of Turkey. Parts of Croatia, Montenegro, think about Moldova, too, there’s less control there, also the northern part of Africa. Morocco used to be a safe zone, but they’ve really stepped up immigration controls recently. Spain is compromised, way too much police control there. The U.K. is also by far the least safe country. Anything under E.U. control isn’t really safe, because every citizen will have to take the microchip if they want to eat.”
7) “My military source told me that on the U.S. Interstates at night, usually between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., they are closing the freeways and routing traffic through side roads for about a mile or two. This is a test run and it’s happening all over the U.S. the past few months. Anybody talking about it? Nope, it looks like road work. But smart observers have noted there isn’t any visible road work going on. It’s also unusual to see that much road work going on at those times. No, it’s all a test run for funneling traffic during the collapse.”
8) “Watch local police in the USA, they’re getting crazier by the day. More shootings, more out of control behavior. It’s a combination of the training, the militarization of these police, the vaccines they take and most of all, the psychological profiles they’ve been using for over ten years to spit out the good candidates and more or less only hire psychopaths or people who fit a mentally imbalanced criteria. Remember, this is all planned. The police insanity in the USA is no accident. They changed the psych profiles on their hiring process and militarized departments. What do you think is going to happen? They need these goons so they’ll comply with the micro-chipping of Americans, removing their freedom, and in some cases, killing them in cold blood.”
9) “America’s lost, and was never a Christian nation to begin with, since it was founded by Freemasons who worshiped Satan or were deists, or non-believers. All of Washington D.C. is an ode to Moloch and full of Illuminati symbolism in how it was designed. You are trying to ‘save’ something that cannot be saved, and isn’t worth saving. Save yourselves, your families, instead. Their goal is to keep you there, domesticated like cattle, rounded up, easy targets. Getting out at least gives you a chance. If every American woke up and did it, and left, they’d clamp down on that quick, restrict travel right away, but that’s not happening. I’m trying to just reach a few thousand, if I can, if we can. So far it looks like we’re not even reaching that many which might be why they leave the channel up, it’s not a real threat right now, there’s not enough views or people seeing it.”
10) “Christians will be persecuted the most and experience the most severe torture in the underground bases. They’re already persecuted all over the world, but it rarely makes the news. Now keep in mind, the American Christian churches are totally compromised, almost all of them. You might find a few that teach the true Word, which must be read in the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. You can’t rely on the King James version, because there are intentional mistranslated parts in it. These good churches, they don’t teach the Rapture, which is false. They don’t teach prosperity gospel. They instead teach that your role, your life, as a Christian, is persecution, pain and being tested so severely your will and faith will break. That test is coming, but if some Christians do not escape the control grid or the micro-chipping there will be none left.”
11) “The next video I’ll talk about Gangstalking. Viewers need to know this is real and many, many Americans have been terrorized for years by it. We’re going to see that increase dramatically over the next year or two. It’s going to send some people over the edge, right to the nuthouse, if they aren’t prepared for it. The methods they use involve mostly electronics but there are some other things they are using, things discovered using CERN. It’s a torture beyond imagination.”
12) “My military source gave me another bit of shocking info, which I may share in the next audio. I’m not sure about sharing it, though, because it could for certain get the channel removed. I’m thinking of a way I can say it without the channel getting taken down. It scared the hell out of me. We’re at a point where we’ll have to start using code language.”
13) “QAnon is designed to just distract Patriots for long enough for their plans to be put into place. It’s worked like a charm! It’s a psy op. Keep Patriots satiated, comfortable and believing in Trump. Meanwhile, Trump promotes vaccines, 5G and takes away our free speech with various Executive Orders. No one gets locked up, we’re just distracted with stories where we have to ‘just wait a little longer’ for QAnon to deliver, which they never do.”
14) “5G has to do with infertility, mind control and surveillance. It serves multiple purposes. It is not safe at all, and there will be serious health problems. This is where I think we’ll see a major drop in U.S. total population in line with the Deagle predictions.”
15) “My military source told me they will begin freezing the bank accounts of hundreds of thousands of Patriots in mid to late 2020, in the run-up for the implementation of Project Zyphr. This will severely hamstring your ability to move, plan, prepare or do anything. This move will be devastating, and will not go reported in the media. There will be an information blackout and the disinfo channels won’t even report on it. This scares me a lot because once your bank account is frozen, you’re going to be in a very desperate position. They’ll also have their legal reasons lined up for it, dozens of judge orders based on your online activities which they will call ‘domestic terrorism’ or a ‘domestic threat’ or come up with some other reason.”
16) “I talked about Bitcoin in my last video and I’ll probably talk about it more. What people need to realize is that once you have Bitcoin they can’t freeze or steal it from you, in the way they can do so with your bank accounts, debit cards and credit cards. Bitcoin is not as easy to spend as cash but it’s still going to be better than having your assets frozen. There’s also some speculation the price may go up in 2020, so buying it now is probably a good idea as it’s not that expensive right now.”
17) “I’m looking into forming some kind of online group so we can all communicate and I’m thinking of sharing my email, or at least a safe email I set up. I have to be really careful with email so I’ll look into something that is encrypted, protected, not linked to me easily. That’s a tall order since all the email companies share all of your emails with the U.S. government, but there are a few that don’t. We might have to look at using code language, other things to make communication safer. I just want to try to dedicate some time each week to helping people and answering emails. I don’t think the videos are enough.”
18) “David spoke a lot about the upcoming scripted war with Iran. It will be part of the scripted ‘World War III’ they have been planning for decades, even centuries. Everyone should listen to some of David’s final videos where he talks about this. Iran’s parliament building is a giant pyramid with 33 windows which represents Freemasonic symbolism. They’re working together on this, Iran is basically a Luciferian vassal used as a convenient boogeyman. David said this exact thing in one of his videos and we talked about it, but no one else is seeing that Iran is a part of this. They’re not seeing the real picture here. There’s also articles in the media today suggesting various ways Iran might retaliate, including the use of missiles striking U.S. and European cities, and the use of pre-positioned nuclear devices. Just today I’ve seen a story of a nuclear device that was supposedly deactivated in Israel. These stories are predictive programming, to prep for the main event or false flag. The bold assassination of Quds Commander Qasem Soleimani sets the stage after seven months of predictive programming to prep the world psychologically for this war. I’m not sure how it will coincide with the controlled collapse, but it may happen in tandem with it. I’ve sent a message to my military source to get an update on what’s going on.
“This is symbolic, the use of the American truck and weapons here. Symbolism is very important to them. You must remember that Iran incurred two American-backed revolutions, one in 1953 and the other in 1979. Who really runs the country? The CIA’s involvement is decades-old in there, and it’s leading up to an ‘End Game’ scenario through a series of scripted events, pitting factions, ideologies against one another. Many rabbis and Israeli leaders want to live long enough to see the day these plans come to fruition, which is soon, they are lusting and salivating for it. The deception is so mind-boggling it is difficult to fully unravel. It’s difficult to know the extent Iran’s leadership is working with the USA, and which part is not. I wish David were alive to see this, to see his many insights and predictions beginning to play out. He taught me a lot about the true nature of the Iran and U.S. situation, which is hidden. Some call it Biblical and prophetic in nature. You must resist any urge promoted through Trump’s manipulations to accept a single word of the liars in the American government. Your consent to evil is how they spiritually gain power over you.”

Der Geheimbund »Unabhängiger jüdischer Orden B’nai Brith« (U.O.B.B.), dessen Name übersetzt »Söhne des Bundes« lautet, wurde 1843 in New York gegründet.
Der Geheimbund »Unabhängiger jüdischer Orden B’nai Brith« (U.O.B.B.) nimmt nur Juden auf. Sein Programm dient der Interessenvertretung jüdischer Bürger in der ganzen Welt und der Förderung ihrer ethischen Erziehung. Der Orden »Unabhängiger jüdischer Orden B’nai Brith« (U.O.B.B.) wird zentral aus den USA geleitet. Es gibt dort sieben Distriktslogen, in anderen Ländern bestehen weitere zehn Distrikts-Großlogen, die in Logen gegliedert sind.
Die Distrikts-Großloge Deutschland des Geheimbundes »Unabhängiger jüdischer Orden B’nai Brith« (U.O.B.B.) wurde bereits 1882 gegründet. Der Orden hat ein eigenes Erkennungszeichen, seine Struktur umfasst drei rituelle Grade, die die Mitglieder allmählich erwerben. Den Logen sind Frauenvereinigungen und Jugendbünde angegliedert.
Der B’nai-Brith ist ein Männerbund innerhalb der jüdischen Glaubensgemeinschaft.
Obwohl der Geheimbund »Unabhängiger jüdischer Orden B’nai Brith« (U.O.B.B.) selbst jegliche politische Tätigkeit bestreitet, vertreten jedoch mehrere Publikationen eine gegenteilige Ansicht. Sein Einfluss auf die internationale Politik soll nicht unerheblich sein. Der jüdische Geheimbund zählt heute weltweit an die 350.000 Mitglieder, davon leben etwa 300.000 in den USA.
Anfang 1952 wurde der
— Notstandsrat Europäischer Rabbiner
dringend zu einer Zusammenkunft nach Budapest (Ungarn) einberufen,
deren Gegenstand und Grund die Beschleunigung der
Bei der, am 12. Januar 1952 in dieser Stadt abgehaltenen Sitzung gab der Vorsitzende,
— Rabbi Emanuel RABINOVICH von London,
in seiner Ansprache folgende Richtlinien — für die nähere Zukunft:
„Ich begrüße Euch, meine Kinder!
Ihr wurdet hierher gerufen,
um die hauptsächlichsten Schritte unseres neuen Programmes festzulegen.
Wie Ihr wißt, hofften wir, 20 Jahre Zeit vor uns zu haben,
um die im II. Weltkrieg von uns erzielten großen Gewinne zu festigen,
jedoch hat unsere,
auf gewissen lebenswichtigen Gebieten stark zunehmende Stärke,
Opposition gegen uns erweckt und wir müssen deshalb jetzt,
mit allen uns zur Verfügung stehenden Mitteln
dahin wirken, den Ausbruch des III. Weltkrieges zu beschleunigen.
Das Ziel, das wir während 3000 Jahren mit so viel Ausdauer anstrebten, ist
endlich in unserer Reichweite und da dessen Erfüllung so sichtbar ist,
müssen wir trachten,
unsere Anstrengungen und unsere Vorsicht zu verzehnfachen.
Ich kann Euch versichern,
daß unsere Rasse ihren berechtigten Platz auf der Welt einnehmen wird:
jeder Jude ein König, jeder Christ ein Sklave!
(Applaus seitens der Versammlung).
Ihr erinnert Euch an unseren Propaganda Feldzug während der 1930er Jahre,
welcher in Deutschland antiamerikanische Leidenschaften erweckte;
zur selben Zeit weckten wir antideutsche Gefühle in Amerika,
eine Kampagne, welche im II. Weltkrieg gipfelte.
Ein ähnlicher Propaganda Krieg wird gegenwärtig intensiv auf der ganzen Welt durchgeführt.
Kriegsfieber wird durch ein stets antiamerikanisches Sperrfeuer in Rußland geschürt,
derweil in Amerika eine antikommunistische Angstmacherei über das Land fegt.
Diese Kampagne zwingt alle kleineren Nationen zur Gemeinschaft mit Rußland,
oder zum Bündnis mit Amerika.
Unser dringendstes Problem im Moment ist,
den zaghaften militärischen Geist der Amerikaner zu entflammen.
Das Versagen der Akte für die allgemeine Militär Dienstpflicht
(bei der Abstimmung im Kongress),
war ein schwerer Rückschlag für unsere Pläne,
es wurde uns aber versichert,
daß eine entsprechende Maßnahme sofort nach den Wahlen
1952 im Kongress durchgepeitscht wird
(gemeint ist die Präsidentschaftswahl am 4. 11. 1952 —
Anm. w3000: Ziffernsumme 23), bei der Eisenhower gewählt wurde).
Das russische Volk, ebenso wie die asiatischen Völker,
stehen unter Kontrolle und sind kriegswillig,
wir müssen aber warten, um uns der Amerikaner zu versichern.
Dieses Programm wird sein Endziel, die
🗺 Entfachung des III. Weltkrieges, erreichen,
der bezüglich Zerstörungen alle früheren Kriege übertreffen wird.
Israel wird selbstverständlich neutral bleiben und wenn beide
Teile verwüstet und erschöpft am Boden liegen,
werden wir als Schiedsrichter vermitteln und
Kontrollkommissionen in alle zerstörten Länder senden.
🌋 Dieser Krieg wird unseren Kampf gegen die Goyim für alle Zeiten beenden.
Wir werden unsere Identität allen
Rassen Asiens und Afrikas offen aufdecken.
Ich kann mit Sicherheit behaupten, daß zur Zeit die letzte
Generation weißer Kinder geboren wird.
Unsere Kontrollkommission wird, im Interesse des Friedens und um
die Spannungen zwischen den Rassen zu beseitigen,
den Weißen verbieten, sich mit Weißen zu paaren.
🧭 Weiße Frauen sollen von Mitgliedern der dunklen
Rassen begattet werden und
weiße Männer nur dunkle Frauen begatten dürfen.
So wird die weiße Rasse verschwinden,
da Vermischung der Dunklen mit den Weißen,
das Ende des weißen Menschen bedeutet,
und unser gefährlichster Feind zur Erinnerung wird.
Wir werden ein Zeitalter des Friedens und der Fülle von zehntausend Jahren beschreiten:
die Pax Judaica, und unsere Rasse wird unangefochten die Erde beherrschen.
Unsere überlegene Intelligenz wird uns befähigen,
mit Leichtigkeit die Macht über eine Welt von dunklen Völkern zu halten.
“ Frage aus der Versammlung:
— „Rabbi Rabinovich, wie wird es mit den verschiedenen Religionen nach dem dritten Weltkrieg?“
❗️⚠️❗️„Es wird keine Religionen mehr geben.
Nicht nur, daß die Existenz einer Priesterklasse
eine ständige Gefahr
für unsere Herrschaft bleiben würde, 🦢
auch der Unsterblichkeitsglaube würde unversöhnlichen
Elementen in vielen Ländern geistige Kraft geben und
sie derart zum Widerstand gegen uns befähigen.
Wir werden jedoch die Rituale und Sitten des Judaismus beibehalten als
Wahrzeichen unserer erblichen Herrscherkaste,
🦇 unsere Rassengesetze verschärfen,
indem keinem Juden erlaubt sein wird,
außerhalb unserer Rasse zu heiraten, auch
wird kein Fremder von uns angenommen werden.
🦂 Wir könnten gezwungen sein,
die grimmigen Tage des II. Weltkrieges, als wir zuließen,
daß Hitlerbanditen einige der Unseren ermordeten,
❗️ zu dem Zwecke zu wiederholen,
um Beweise und Zeugen zu haben,
um zu Gericht zu sitzen und
☞ die Hinrichtung der Führer Amerikas und Rußlands zu rechtfertigen,
nachdem wir den Frieden diktiert haben.
Ich bin sicher, daß Ihr auf dieses Opfer leicht eingehen werdet,
da das Opfern seit je das Losungswort unseres Volkes gewesen ist und
der Tod einiger Tausend im Tausch
für die Weltherrschaft tatsächlich ein niedriger Preis ist.
Um Euch von der Gewißheit unserer Führerschaft zu überzeugen,
laßt mich Euch aufzeigen,
wie wir alle Erfindungen der weißen Völker zu Waffen gegen sie gemacht haben.
Ihre Druckerpressen und Radios sind die Sprachrohre unserer Wünsche und
ihre Schwerindustrie stellt die Instrumente her,
die sie hinaus senden,
um Asien und Afrika gegen sie selbst zu bewaffnen.
🕍 Unsere Interessen in Washington erhöhen bei Weitem das
‚Punkt Vier‘ Programm für die industrielle Entwicklung in zurückgebliebenen Gebieten der Welt so,
daß nachdem die Industriebetriebe und Städte Europas und Amerikas
durch den Atomkrieg zerstört sind,
⛪️ die Weißen keinen
Widerstand gegen die großen Massen der dunklen Rassen mehr bieten können,
welche dann ihre unbestrittene Überlegenheit halten werden.
Und so, mit dem Ausblick auf den Weltsieg vor Augen,
geht zurück in Eure Länder und
steigert Euer gutes Wirken, bis zu dem sich nähernden Tag,
🏦 wenn Israel sich enthüllen wird,
in all seinem glorreichen Schicksal, als das Licht der Welt“

„Die Bankierverschwörung –
Die Machtergreifung der Hochfinanz und ihre Folgen“:
(Anmerkung: Jede Aussage von Rabinovich basiert auf der in den “Protokollen von Zion” enthaltenen Agenda).
Hallo noch einmal Jeff, danke für meinen Kommentar letzte Woche ‘Unsere Rasse wird unbestritten über die Welt regieren’ http://rense.com/general45/race.htm , es scheint, dass dieser Artikel viele Juden auf der ganzen Welt schockiert hat. Ich wurde mit hunderten von E-Mails überschwemmt. Ich möchte mich bei vielen von Ihnen entschuldigen, dass ich nicht geantwortet habe, ich verspreche, dass ich jedem von Ihnen rechtzeitig antworten werde. Wenn jemand von Ihnen E-Mail-‘Probleme’ hatte, bei dem Versuch, mich zu kontaktieren, versuchen Sie es bitte noch einmal.
Eine Frage, die in vielen der E-Mails an mich wiederholt wurde, war: ‘Wie können wir die vollständige Rabbinovich-Rede finden?
Ich habe das Internet durchsucht, aber alle Webseiten mit Rabbinovichs Rede wurden ‘aufgeräumt’ oder blockiert (ich nehme an, wie immer von den Zionisten). Da ich mich erinnere, von meinem Großvater schon in den fünfziger Jahren von dieser Rede gehört zu haben, beschloss ich, meinen Rabbiner zu kontaktieren. Er suchte seine Lieblingswebsite http://abbc.com/ und fand den vollständigen Artikel. Ich füge hier die vollständige Rede von Rabbiner Rabbinovich (Rabinovich) bei.
Um die Wahrheit zu sagen, ich war überrascht über die fantastische Reaktion Ihrer Leser auf diese Rede. Schließlich gibt es wenig Neues in dieser Rede, und die meisten Leute, die die Protokolle der Ältesten von Zion lesen, sind bereits sehr vertraut mit dieser Information. Leider ist es uns Juden NICHT erlaubt, die Protokolle zu lesen, da die Zionisten uns über die versteckten Ziele des Zionismus auf dem Laufenden halten wollen.
Einige der E-Mails, die ich erhielt, behaupteten, dass die Protokolle der Ältesten von Zion eine Fälschung seien.
Dazu habe ich fünf Kommentare:
Einige der Emails waren Beschwerden, dass sie die Protokolle der Ältesten von Zion nicht kaufen konnten. Dies ist wahr, da wir Juden den größten Teil des Drucks und der Buchverteilung in den USA und vielen anderen Ländern kontrollieren. Ich musste selbst zu: http://churchoftrueisrael.com/protocols/ gehen. Ich druckte es und machte 100 Kopien und verteilte sie an ALLE meine Freunde und ALLE Mitglieder meiner Synagoge. Ich ermutigte jeden, sie an so viele Freunde wie möglich zu verteilen. Wenn die dummen Nichtjuden die zionistische Agenda nicht verstehen, marschieren wir blind in den 3. Weltkrieg als Lemminge von der Klippe.
Ich möchte Ihnen, Jeff, für Ihre wunderbare Website danken und dafür, dass Sie die beste Wissensquelle im Internet für Juden sind. Ich habe mir die Zeit genommen, Ihnen diesen zweiten Kommentar zu schreiben, da ich glaube, dass es UNSERE Verantwortung als Juden ist, die Welt auf die Gefahren des Zionismus aufmerksam zu machen.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Rose Rabbinovich firstname.lastname@example.org Ehemalige Zionistin Melbourne, Victoria, Australien

What are the health effect of radioactive materials?
Dies ist eine Warnung von Anonymous.
Wir beobachten die momentane Entwicklung in der Gesellschaft mit wachsender Besorgnis.
Es gibt eine neue Gefahr die uns alle bedroht, und die noch zu wenigen bewusst ist.
Es ist der Meinungsfaschismus.
Vor allem bei der politisch motivierten Jugend und bei Studenten sehen wir momentan, dass Menschen die andere Ansichten haben, ausgegrenzt und vorverurteilt, ja sogar bekämpft werden.
Dieses Verhalten kennt man eher von Nazis und Faschisten; doch jetzt ist es in der Mitte der Gesellschaft und vor allem bei der Jugend angekommen. Es scheint jetzt leider zum gutem Ton zu gehören ein Meinungsfaschist zu sein.
Wie äußert sich Meinungsfaschismus? Das Prinzip dahinter ist simpel.
Man vertritt selber eine beliebige Meinung, diese muss nicht einmal fundiert sein, es reicht aus, genug Freunde und Bekannte zu haben die diese Meinung teilen.
Dann wendet man die ganze Energie dafür auf, andere, von der eigenen Meinung abweichende Ansichten, zu unterdrücken und im Keim zu ersticken.
Es werden dazu alle beliebigen Mittel verwendet. Von Ausgrenzung, Niederschreien und Mobbing bis hin zu tätlichen Angriffen.
Der Grundgedanke dahinter ist der, dass Meinungen nicht nur private Ansichten sind die einem jeden zustehen, sondern ein Verbrechen an der eigenen Gesinnung darstellen.
Wir kennen das berühmte Sprichwort: „Faschismus ist keine Meinung sondern ein Verbrechen.“
Jetzt können wir aber mittlerweile immer mehr Platzhalterwörter dafür einsetzen.
Klimawandelkritik ist keine Meinung sondern ein Verbrechen.
Genderkritik ist keine Meinung sondern ein Verbrechen.
Fleischessen ist keine Ernährungsform sondern ein Verbrechen.
Diese Auflistung ließe sich noch unendlich lange fortführen.
Was ist das gefährliche daran?
Nun, es handelt sich hierbei um ein faschistoides Verhaltensmuster.
Wo herkömmlicher Faschismus nur Menschen mit gewissen Merkmalen oder Herkünften ausgrenzt, so grenzt Meinungsfaschismus jeden Menschen aus, der anders denkt als man selber.
Dies kann auch innerhalb der Familie geschehen wie wir gerade deutlich an der Fridays for Future und an der Extinction Rebellion–Jugend sehen können.
In George Orwells Dystopie 1984 gab es den Terminus Gedankenverbrechen, und genau das ist es was wir hier gerade erleben.
Orwells Buch war keine Warnung sondern eine Anleitung.
Wer nicht so denkt wie man denken soll, wird a priori als minderwertig, dumm oder böse eingestuft.
Dies mutet fast an wie ein Glaubenskrieg. Es geht gar nicht mehr um Fakten und Beweise, sondern es geht darum Recht zu haben, und wer am lautesten brüllt der fühlt sich im Recht.
Die leersten Köpfe machen nun mal den meisten Lärm.
Wir möchten Euch ein aktuelles Beispiel geben, wie man Meinungsfaschismus erkennt, und zwar am Thema des angeblich menschengemachten Klimawandels.
Der Menschengemachte Klimawandel wird von den Leitmedien, vielen Prominenten und vor allem der Jugend als bewiesen propagiert, und der Konsens ist der, dass wir in 50 Jahren alle aussterben, oder sich unsere Lebensbedingen zumindest dramatisch verschlechtern werden.
Ginge es nach Al Gore, wären wir heute alle schon tot. Nur erinnern sich die Meisten nicht, was dieser Priester der Klimakirche predigte.
Jede andere Meinung, ist sie auch noch so differenziert und belegbar wird:
„in den jeweiligen Foren und Diskussionsgruppen sofort zensiert, gelöscht und führt zu einem Auschluss aus der Gruppe.
Führt dazu, dass man öffentlich diskreditiert und mundtot gemacht wird.
Führt dazu, dass man auf der Strasse beschimpft wird.
Führt dazu, dass man auf Demonstrationen bedroht und angegriffen wird.
Führt dazu, dass man als Nazi oder anderes beschimpft wird.
Letztendlich führt es dazu, dass man Angst hat seine Meinung frei zu äußern.“
Ja, da wären wir dann.
Willkommen im Faschismus 2.0
Anonymous ruft alle Menschen dazu auf, zu dieser gefährlichen Entwicklung nicht länger zu schweigen.
Faschismus setzt sich nur durch, wenn der Großteil der Menschen aus Angst vor Konsequenzen schweigt.
Jetzt können wir diese Entwicklung noch stoppen, aber wir müssen JETZT handeln, sonst könnte es zu spät sein.
Anonymous war schon immer ein Verteidiger der Meinungs- und Redefreiheit.
Dies ist einer der Grundpfeiler unserer Gesellschaft und ein Recht eines jeden freien Menschen.
Benennt Meinungsfaschismus als das was er ist.
Weist die jungen Menschen, die in diese Falle tappen, darauf hin.
Brecht das Schweigen, und stoppt mit uns diese Entwicklung.
Wir von Anonymous werden Euch dabei unterstützen und wir beobachten die Meinungsfaschisten ganz genau.
Ihr seid auf unserem Radar.
Passt auf und werdet wieder normal!
Wir schliessen mit einem angeblichen Zitat von Voltaire:
„Mein Herr, ich teile Ihre Meinung nicht, aber ich würde mein Leben dafür einsetzen, daß Sie sie äußern dürfen.“

Wow. I’m not a historian, so, happy to be corrected, but my instinct on this one is to call bullshit. Very loudly.
Agreeing with the other answers here, I would have made similar points, just one more:
The reference given is pure bullshit – a historian who starts by saying “read my book” is to be listened to only with precaution.
It is very unlikely. The original Swiss confederation in the 13th century was made up of people from difficult to access mountain valleys within the Holy Roman Empire. They had a status that made them directly accountable to the emperor but were threatened by Habsburg “expansionism” within the empire. Their objective was to protect themselves against the Habsburg but also to ensure the peaceful management of the important trade routes through the Alps.
Although these regions are easy to access today both by train and by car, it doesn’t require much imagination to realise just how wild the place must have been before tunnels and bridges were built to make the Gotthard pass more accessible:
Even then it was rather scary in the best of weathers:
It is only round the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that it was made secure. Today the region is a paradise for hikers. So long as the weather is good!
It was a region inhabited by mountain farmers who made some money providing shelter to the merchants crossing the Alps with their wares.
Switzerland grew progressively over the centuries to become the country that we know today. It was to take hundreds of years before it became a rich country. In fact that happened in the last hundred to a hundred and fifty years with the rise of tourism, banking and the service industries that are the basis of the modern economy.
To earn money many Swiss worked as mercenaries in foreign armies including the Pope’s. This probably made them a well trained force with experience of real fighting. They would also have known the ground well and the very remoteness and wildness of the region would have made them a tough proposition to conquer!
There is no historical evidence of any Templar influence in the early history of Switzerland and no particular reason for them to want to go to a small region withing the Holy Roman Empire which had neither fortune, nor particular interest at the time.
No. The Templars were suppressed as an Order throughout Latin Christendom in 1312. Surviving brethren were farmed out to other orders, usually the Hospitallers. In Portugal, the brethren were formed into a new order, the Order of Christ.
Banking secrecy only exists since 1934.
Thanks for asking me Ross.
The Templar seal depicting a horse with two riders has always mystified historians, at least those not familiar with its Sumerian antecedent. But given the complex and sometimes contradictory story of the Knights Templar, it makes sense on a number of different levels.
It symbolizes the exoteric and the esoteric nature of the Order. It symbolizes the agenda of Rome and the hidden agenda of the grand masters.It symbolizes the Norman core of the Order and also its shadowy patrons, possibly Venetians. And it symbolizes the virtual empire of the Normans/Templars and the ancient virtual empire of the Phoenicians.
The Phoenicians were similarly dualistic. There was the obvious mercantile component of the virtual empire; “an empire built on trade, not conquest” as the cliche goes, but there was also the cultural component as well. The Phoenicians were in many ways the Internet of the ancient Mediterranean.
There was the exoteric religion of the Phoenicians and their Canaanite kin that was based on the Sumerian-derived pantheon, and then there was a parallel, syncretic Greco-Egyptian Mystery tradition the Phoenicians seem to have created and disseminated, from Persia to the British Isles. And then there was the evolution of that tradition from the Mysteries to Gnosticism, which Phoenicians seem to be the secret force behind as well.
Rome had countless thousands killed —perhaps up to a million people or even many more— from the reign of Constantine to the Albigensian Crusade in order to eradicate Gnosticism from Europe. It was much like conservative hero Cato’s genocide of the Carthaginians— probably the most efficient genocide of a people in terms of raw percentage– up to 85% of the nation was killed during Rome’s invasion.
The never-ending Crusade would be slowed with the rise of the Rosicrucians and the original Freemasons, who would bring down the Medieval royal families and greatly reduce the power of the Vatican in Europe.
Even so, tens of thousands of Rosicrucians and Freemasons would then be slaughtered in concentration camps with the rise of self-confessed Christian Adolf Hitler who– contrary to all of the ridiculous and somewhat sinister disinformation floating around out there —went out of his way to crush all forms of Esotericism, outside of the traditional Volkisch mysticism of the SS.
And we can add the hundreds of Templars burned alive to the death toll.
What becomes clear is that the heresy the Templars were accused of was Johannite Gnosticism; in other words, a reverence of John the Baptist as the true messiah. The Vatican is unambiguous about this– or rather, was until it reversed course in the mid 2000s under pressure or influence we can only guess at. As Pope Pius IX wrote:
“The Templars, like all other Secret Orders and Associations, had two doctrines, one concealed and reserved for the Masters, which was Johannism; the other public, which was the Roman Catholic. Thus they deceived the adversaries whom the sought to supplant. Hence Free-Masonry, vulgarly imagined to have begun with the Dionysian Architects or the German Stone-workers, adopted Saint John the Evangelist as one of its patrons, associating with him, in order not to arouse the suspicions of Rome, Saint John the Baptist, and thus covertly proclaiming itself the child of the Kabalah and Essenism together.”
– Pope Pius IX
Was John himself Phoenician? Syrian Phoenicians are generally credited with the creation of Gnosticism and the Vatican is on record as believing the Baptist to be the “Father of the Gnostics.” It’s hard to say, but what is clear is that like many other hubs of the Roman East, Israel was a marketplace of religious ideas during the time of John and Jesus and the lines of demarcation were not always clear. Syncretism was rampant and ideas were stolen left and right as any number of sects competed for adherents among the bustling cities of the eastern Mediterranean, from Antioch to Alexandria.
The fact that the Templars would use the Gnostic deity of Abraxas on their official seals only confirms these connections. The Gnostics were like the Phoenicians in that they valued magical gems or coins, known as “scarabs” or “amulets,” as portable icons for the believer. The figure of Abraxas was especially popular:
The Basilidean Gnostics taught that from this supreme God was created nous (mind). Abraxas also was identified with the Hebrew ‘Adonai, the Egyptian Horus, and the Hindu Prajapati.
Gnostic amulets known as Abraxas gems depicted the god as a pantheos (all-god), with the head of a cock, herald of the sun, representing foresight and vigilance; a human body clothed in armor, suggestive of guardian power; legs in the form of sacred asps. In his right hand is a scourge, emblem of authority; on his left arm a shield emblazoned with a word of power. – Glossary of Spiritual and Religious Words
Abraxas was identified with Horus and was probably derived from a common Phoenician scarab design picturing a kneeling Horus atop the two symbolic serpents of Egypt called the Uraei, often seen on pharaonic headdresses. As you can see in the images above, the snake legs of Abraxas take the place of the Uraei. Note that Abraxas also carries Horus’ pharaonic flail. The rooster was identified with Horus in his form of Harpocrates, the rising sun, for obvious reasons.
But how could the Templars have learned of Abraxas, with the original Gnostics long buried and even the anti-Gnostic writings of the aristocratic Church Fathers generally unavailable in the days before the invention of the printing press?
Scholars have long cited the survival of ancient wisdom in Arab and Persian lands, which became sanctuaries for scholars and religious minorities fleeing the rampaging desert monks (literally the first “storm-troopers,” in that they came out of the Egyptian wilderness into the cities to destroy all opposition to the orthodoxy like a desert storm).
But the tolerance of Hellenistic learning had waned considerably by the time the Templars came along, and a backlash was rising in the Muslim world due to a number of thorny religious disputes:
(Abbasid caliph al-Mamun) responded to a crisis of legitimacy by attempting to undermine traditionalist religious scholars while actively sponsoring a doctrine called Mu’tazilism that was deeply influenced by Greek rationalism, particularly Aristotelianism. To this end, he imposed an inquisition, under which those who refused to profess their allegiance to Mu’tazilism were punished by flogging, imprisonment, or beheading.
But the caliphs who followed al-Mamun upheld the doctrine with less fervor, and within a few decades, adherence to it became a punishable offense. The backlash against Mu’tazilism was tremendously successful: by 885, a half century after al-Mamun’s death, it even became a crime to copy books of philosophy.
But there were other sects in the Levant where the Templars could rediscover the lost legacy of Western civilization. A process would begin in which ancient wisdom and sacred science would be rediscovered, a process that would lead to the progress and prosperity of the High Middle Ages and the Renaissance and the gradual weakening of Roman power.
This would be the true birth of Europe, which may have been midwifed by a mysterious sect who arose in Phoenicia at the same time the Normans were making their mark on Europe.
Remember that contrary to the popular myth of fanatical holy warriors, the Knights Templar often made peace with the “Saracens”, a blanket term not only for Muslims but for other non-Christian sects in Asia. They would be criticized for their contacts with the indigenous people of the lands they were occupying, one group of whom was almost certainly the source of the Templars exposure to the ancient Gnosis.
Unlike the Knights Templar, this sect survives to this this day:
The Druze faith began as a movement in Ismailism, that was mainly influenced by Greek philosophy and gnosticism and opposed certain religious and philosophical ideologies that were present during that epoch. The faith was preached by Hamza ibn ‘Alī ibn Ahmad, a Persian Ismaili mystic and scholar. He came to Egypt in 1014 and assembled a group of scholars and leaders from across the world to establish the Unitarian movement.- Wiki
As with the Sikhs of India and arguably the Templars themselves, the Druze learned that the only way for a Gnostic sect to survive was to learn how to fight, and fight better than their oppressors:
It was during the period of Crusader rule in Syria (1099–1291) that the Druze first emerged into the full light of history in the Gharb region of the Chouf Mountains. As powerful warriors serving the Muslim rulers of Damascus against the Crusades, the Druze were given the task of keeping watch over the crusaders in the seaport of Beirut, with the aim of preventing them from making any encroachments inland.
Subsequently, the Druze chiefs of the Gharb placed their considerable military experience at the disposal of the Mamluk rulers of Egypt (1250–1516); first, to assist them in putting an end to what remained of Crusader rule in coastal Syria, and later to help them safeguard the Syrian coast against Crusader retaliation by sea- Wiki
Following the Persian conquest of Syria and the Phoenician homelands, there was a lot of exchange of people and ideas between Persia and the Levant. Ismailism seems to have Phoenician fingerprints all over it, and the Druze religion– largely centered in historical Phoenicia– is nearly identical to the Phoenician Mysteries and Gnostic cults in nearly every way:
The Druze religion is a secret faith. They have preserved the strictest silence upon their beliefs and truly occult rites…….Of the alleged 45 sacred books of the Druze, none were ever seen, let alone examined, by any European scholar.
To the Druze, previous religions are mere types of the true, and their sacred books and observances are to be interpreted allegorically. As converts are no longer admitted, the faithful must keep their doctrine secret from the profane; and in order that their allegiance may not bring them into danger, (they are allowed) to make outward profession to hide their inner belief… –Antioch Gate
The connections between the Phoenician Mysteries and the Druze extend to the special relationship between the Druze and the post-Templar esoteric orders of the late Renaissance and Enlightenment periods. Many have argued that the Templars were changed forever by contacts made in the Levant and it would seem that those contacts were with the Druze (note etymological similarity to “Druid”)
Sophisticated Druze still sometimes claim connection with Rosicrucians, and a special relation to Scottish Freemasons. The Druze are rather like Druids, and also like Freemasons. In fact, some say that Templar Knights were initiated into Druze orders, and thus Freemasonry was born. It must be pointed out that the Druze were much given to making vehement warfare against the Crusaders.
Rosicrucian doctrines spread to Europe from Arabia, and it is possible that Druze doctrines were carried to Europe during the Crusades. There are modern and traditional parallels between the Druze and the Rosicrucians who came a few hundred years later.
In the modern sense, some Druze were initiated into Orders of the Rose-Croix or higher degrees of Masonry (or the mystical Masonic Rite called the Order of Disciples of Pythagoras) and they came to a faith which is in essence the same mystery doctrine that the Rose-Croix teaches. –Antioch Gate
Even more remarkable is the special attachment to Akhenaton, whose conversations with a mysterious flying disk he called Ra-Horus-Aten changed the course of world history:
That organized school began to spread to other lands during the reign of Akhenaton, and spread to Greece (where Pythagoras, Plato and Plotinus were initiates), then Canaan. Akhenaton is recognized as a divine being by both the Rose-Croix and Druze. Even the mystical work of Rose-Croix (and Martinist work) revolved around “reintegration.”
Archetypical Man as a divine being forgot his true essence and mistakes the material universe (which is part of him) as separate and external, since the Fall. Physical man is but a material shadow though endowed with a divine spark. –Antioch Gate
The Druze are not the only Syncretic/Gnostic sect in the former Phoenician lands, nor the only sect with a special link to Mt. Hermon, home of the Igigi, the Watchers left behind by the Anunnaki in Sumerian myth and later regarded as “fallen angels.”
Also known as Nusayris, (the Alawites) are an Arabic speaking ethno-religious community, who also live in the Latakiah province of Syria and in the adjacent districts of northern Lebanon and southern Turkey. In recent years many ‘Alawis have moved to the large cities of Syria. A small number still survive in Wadi al-Taym south of Mt Hermon. World-wide they number 2.2 million people, of whom 1.6 million live in Syria where they constitute 13% of the population and are the largest minority group.
Their religion is secret and seems to be a syncretistic mixture of extreme Shi’a (Ghulat), ancient pagan, gnostic and Christian elements. They are sometimes classified as a branch of Twelver Shi’ism, but are actually an independent religion. They do not keep the five pillars of Islam, and they have no mosques but meet in private houses for their religious observances. Their festivals include Persian and Christian holy days. They have a ceremony similar to the Christian mass and believe in a trinitarian manifestation of God.
The Druze and the Alawi both arose from the mountains of the Levant and almost certainly stem from earlier common antecedents, the same philosophy that also produced the so-called Assassin cult of Hassan-i Sabbah, which has become closely entwined with the Templar mythology.
Despite mutual animosity, the Alawis are much like the Druzes. Historically both the Druze and the Alawis are off-shoots of Ismailism, which was an earlier split from the Shi’i Imamis (Twelver Shi’ah, the sect that predominates in Iran) …Alawis reject Islam’s main tenets; by almost any standard they must be considered non-Muslims.
An accepted reference on Nusayri rites and doctrines was published in Aleppo in 1859 as Kitab al-Majmu. According to its author, Sulayman al-Adhani, the Nusayris, like other sects of the Syrian mountains on the Mediterranean, primarily believed in the transmigration of souls.- Islamic Articles Library
The Assassins were yet another warrior Gnostic clan in the former Phoenician homelands, a fact which beggars coincidence. It could be argued that the Phoenicians kept close to home and took on whatever exoteric guise their neighbors adopted and continued to pursue their own interests apart from the demands of the religious and military forces running rampant throughout Asia Minor and North Africa for centuries.
And contrary to the reductionist propaganda surrounding them -the hashish and the false Paradise and the rest- the Assassins also followed Gnostic ideas of spiritual incarnation, the same ones that inspired Bogomil high initiates to hurl themselves onto the Crusader bonfires, rather than beg for mercy:
“Isma’ili theology was thus revolutionary in character. The haqa’iq transcended human reason and ultimately derived from gnostic doctrines, considering the principles of spiritual and physical worlds in Neoplatonic terms.
The Gnostics held that the physical world had been created by an inferior deity, the Yahweh of the Old Testament, who was allowed a certain lassitude until God decided to send His son to inhabit the body of Jesus and free the world from false teachings.
Certain Gnostic notions passed into Islam when Mohammed adopted the gnostic idea that the body which was crucified was only a phantom which the Jews and Romans could not harm.”–Edward Burman, The Assassins: Holy Killers of Islam
The radicalism of the Assassins showed that the dreamy, hippie Gnostics of Alexandria were a distant memory and a new kind of Gnostic emerged in the Levant, forged in the endless human bonfires of Rome’s inquisitors and crusaders. But the indulgent Gnosis of the Alexandrian rich kids may well be an aberration itself.
Gnosticism originally arose in Roman Syria, the territory carved out of Phoenician rubble, and was a rigorous and pessimistic creed, exactly what you might expect from a defeated people whose racial memory stretched back to a time when men walked with gods:
(The Syrian) school represents the oldest phase of Gnosticism, as Western Asia was the birthplace of the movement. Dositheus, Simon Magus, Menander, Cerinthus, Cerdo, Saturninus Justin, the Bardesanites, Sevrians, Ebionites, Encratites, Ophites, Naassenes, the Gnostics of the “Acts of Thomas”, the Sethians, the Peratae, the Cainites may be said to belong to this school.
The Naassenes (from Nahas, the Hebrew for serpent) were worshippers of the serpent as a symbol of wisdom, which the God of the Jews tried to hide from men. The Ophites (ophianoi, from ophis, serpent), who, when transplanted on Alexandrian soil, supplied the main ideas of Valentinianism, become one of the most widely spread sects of Gnosticism. Though not strictly serpent-worshippers, they recognized the serpent as symbol of the supreme emanation, Achamoth or Divine Wisdom.
The universe they symbolized by a triangle enclosed in a circle. The number three is the key to all mysteries. There are three supreme principles: the not-generated, the self-generated, the generated. There are three logoi, of gods; the Saviour has a threefold nature, threefold body, threefold power, etc. – The Catholic Encyclopedia
And the constant bickering between the El cults of Canaan and the El cults of Israel certainly seems to be reflected in the jaundiced eye the Syrian Gnostics regarded the God of the Jews and Christians with.
The Serpent– who represented Wisdom to the Gnostics– wasn’t a tempter in the Garden, he was a liberator. Yahweh was a slave-master, denying knowledge to Adam and Eve in the same way plantation masters forbade their slaves from learning how to read or write:
The Garden of Eden story is then transformed so that the biblical tree of the knowledge of good and evil becomes a vehicle of knowledge (gnosis) established by the heavenly or pleromatic realm. But the tree of life becomes a vehicle of bondage and dependence established by the demiurgical realm.
The divine messenger from the pleroma encourages man to eat from the tree of knowledge; and in so eating, man discovers that the jealous Creator – Demiurge (often linked with misspelled forms of Yahweh such as Yaldabaoth or Yao) is not in fact the ultimate God but really an enemy of God. Man, as a result of divine help, thus comes to know more than the Creator.
Gnostics are those set within a world where they are the spiritual persons (pneumatikoi) who possess the light particles and need only to be awakened in order to inherit their destinies.
The Valentinian goal is reentry into the pleroma, which is often symbolized by terms such as “union” or “unity.”… At death the Gnostics, who had experienced awakening, shed the rags of mortality as they ascended through the realms of the fates (or planets). — G. L. Borchert, Elwell Evangelical Dictionary
To the true Gnostic, death was a liberation from the false prison planet of the Demiurge and his Archons. It’s no surprise then how Gnostic sects like the Druze became such fearsome warriors.
But there’s an even older Gnostic sect in the Middle East than the Druze or the Alawi, one that the Templars almost certainly came into contact with and one that would explain the reverence for John the Baptist in esoteric orders.
No less an authority than Josephus recorded that the Jews believed it was the execution of John and not Jesus that was believed to have brought the wrath of God down upon them in the civil wars that led to the Roman destruction of Jerusalem in the First Century:
The Mandaeans (literally, “the knowers”) are the only surviving Gnostics from the time of late Antiquity. They have dwelled for the past eighteen hundred years in southern Iraq and southwest Iran, and increasingly, as a result of recent wars, in other parts of the world. They adhere to the typical Gnostic doctrines and mythologies regarding the soul’s entrapment in earthly life and the existence of a heavenly Lightworld, the soul’s true home.
Being baptists, the Mandaeans consider John the Baptist their main prophet and renewer of the religion, which, they say, ultimately stems from Adam himself. The Mandaeans live next to but remain apart from their (mostly Moslem) neighbors, and throughout the centries they have preserved their traditions to a remarkable degree.
Conversion to Mandaean beliefs would explain the charges most consistently aimed at the Templars by defectors in the ranks, namely that “they spit on the Holy Cross, these Knights Templar. Not only do they deny the divinity of Christ during their reception, they do not even worship God Almighty, but a graven idol instead. ” From Pope Pius IX’s landmark Allocution:
“The secret thought of Hugues de Payens, in founding his Order, was not exactly to serve the ambition of the Patriarchs of Constantinople. There existed at that period in the East a Sect of Johannite Christians, who claimed to be the only true Initiates into the real mysteries of the religion of the Saviour.
“The Johannites ascribed to Saint John the foundation of their Secret Church, and the Grand Pontiffs of the Sect assumed the title of Christos, Anointed, or Consecrated, and claimed to have succeeded one another from Saint John by an uninterrupted succession of pontifical powers.
Pio’s charge of Templar Johannite subversion seems ridiculous to orthodox historians, but the mystical ferment of the 11th Century might well speak to contact between the Normans– no admirers of the soft, decadent pederasts who were taking away their ancestral gods– and Mandaean sects in the mountains of Antioch. Pio again:
“Thus the Order of Knights of the Temple was at its very origin devoted to the cause of opposition to the tiara of Rome and the crowns of Kings, and the Apostolate of Kabalistic Gnosticism was vested in its chiefs. For Saint John himself was the Father of the Gnostics, and the current translation of his polemic against the heretical of his Sect and the pagans who denied that Christ was the Word, is throughout a misrepresentation, or misunderstanding at least, of the whole Spirit of that Evangel.”
And of course the eternal Roman fear of being overthrown– the ultimate source of all religiously-based conspiracy theory dating back to the Bacchants and the Syrian Goddess— informs Pio’s frankly baseless charge that the Templars were planning to overthrow the Holy See.
Blavatsky’s Secret Chiefs in suspiciously Mandaean garb
All evidence points to the conclusion that the Templars had become fat and happy in their new role as Europe’s bankers, a fact that cause considerable resentment among those who once saw them as self-sacrificing Holy Warriors for Christendom. In that regard, Pio’s retroactive conspiracy theorizing below seems particularly specious. When Rome wanted to murder an entire population and steal its treasure, it always dreamed up imaginary conspiracies that its armies swept in to prevent:
“To acquire influence and wealth, then to intrigue, and at need to fight, to establish the Johannite or Gnostic and Kabalistic dogma, were the object and means proposed to the initiated Brethren. The Papacy and the rival monarchies, they said to them, are sold and bought in these days, become corrupt, and to-morrow, perhaps, will destroy each other. All that will become the heritage of the Temple: the World will soon come to us for its Sovereigns and Pontiffs. We shall constitute the equilibrium of the Universe, and be rulers over the Masters of the World.”
The worship of Baphomet – a skull or model of a severed head (such ‘relics’ were common in the Middle Ages) by most reputable accounts- seems also to derived from the John-worshipping Mandaeans, who were probably also conversant in Arabic given their settlements in modern-day Iraq. “Baphomet” could be a sacred pun, combining the Baptist with the Arabic Abufihamat, meaning “Father of Understanding” or “Father of Wisdom.”
If Gnostic sects thrived in the Middle East and continue to survive to this day, the same couldn’t be said for their brethren in Europe. The Cathars built a prosperous Gnostic community in France at the same time the Templars were active and developed a two-tiered system roughly analogous to the laity and clergy of the Catholic Church:
(The Cathars) believed in reincarnation, rejected the Old Testament, rejected the sacraments of the Catholic Church, rejected material possessions, and rejected the image of cross. They also had a clergy known as the “perfect”, which were distinguished from other Cathars, known as “good Christians”, by black clothing. The perfects abstained from meat and marriage, for which the general population of Cathars showed them reverence and respect. Although ascetic doctrines were advocated and adhered to by the perfects, other Cathars continued to own material possessions, have families, and likely ate meat. — Crusades-Encyclopedia
Rome set about to liquidate the Cathars but found that they weren’t like the old Gnostics- they were more like the Druze. Rome’s tactics became more and more brutal, providing a model for the Nazis- who saw themselves as the new Teutonic Knights, slaying the enemies of the Mother Church.
Indeed, by calling themselves the “Third Reich” the Nazis defined themselves as the inheritors of the mantle of Charlemagne, another religiously-inspired mass-murderer who established the First Reich of the Holy Roman Empire. Note the tactics of the fanatically-religious crusader, De Montfort (who like Philip the Fair, died a gruesome- and humiliating- death not long after the massacre):
The Cathars spent much of 1209 fending off the crusaders. The leader of the crusaders, Simon de Montfort, resorted to primitive psychological warfare. He ordered his troops to gouge out the eyes of 100 prisoners, cut off their noses and lips, then send them back to the towers led by a prisoner with one remaining eye. This only served to harden the resolve of the Cathars. –Wikipedia
Overwhelmed by superior numbers, the Cathars eventually fell to the waves of bloodthirsty maniacs:
The doors of the church of St Mary Magdalene were broken down and the refugees dragged out and slaughtered. Reportedly, 7,000 people died there. Elsewhere in the town many more thousands were mutilated and killed. Prisoners were blinded, dragged behind horses, and used for target practice. What remained of the city was razed by fire. Arnaud wrote to Pope Innocent III, “Today your Holiness, twenty thousand heretics were put to the sword, regardless of rank, age, or sex.”–Wikipedia
Indeed, heretic or true believer- it made no difference to Rome. The Cathar genocide would give rise to a famous slogan popularized during the Vietnam War:
The Béziers army attempted a sortie but was quickly defeated, then pursued by the crusaders back through the gates and into the city. Arnaud, the Cistercian abbot-commander, is supposed to have been asked how to tell Cathars from Catholics. His reply, recalled by Caesar of Heisterbach, a fellow Cistercian, thirty years later was “Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius.”—”Kill them all, the Lord will recognise His own.”
In this light, I don’t think it’s very difficult to imagine why people formed secret societies in Medieval Europe.
The Templars were the next human sacrifices in the endless procession of religious genocide in Europe. The French Templars got it the worst, but many other Templars elsewhere in Europe either did the usual penance or were simply allowed to change their identification or melt into other orders.
The “Great Templar Escape” that has inspired legends and novels and even films like the first National Treasure film has been dismissed by historians for lack of documentation– as if flouting the direct orders of the Holy See (and risking the usual, Cathar-type bloodbath) would leave a paper trail. Recent theories have the Templars taking refuge in Switzerland (which would later produce modern Gnostics like Carl Jung, Erich Von Daniken and Albert Hofmann, essentially the three founding fathers of the Secret Sun).
But the most popular theories have it that the Templars escaped into Scotland. Again, orthodox historians have poo-poohed this, but Robert the Bruce was a Norman, the Scots would rout the English at Bannockburn and go on to establish a permanent aristocracy inside England based in banking and shipping, just as the Templars and the Venetians and the Phoenicians before them.
When the Papal letter reached the hand of Robert the Bruce of Scotland to imprison the Templars, he summarily dismissed it. No effort at all was ever made to prosecute the Knighthood in Scotland and this was undoubtedly a major attraction to many noble Templars in hiding. Though perhaps no longer able to openly call themselves Templars, they appear to have continued to exercise real power in the world.
Much evidence supports the belief that Robert the Bruce apparently welcomed renegade Templars into Scotland, both by overland journey from England, and as well as on ships from France. He was in great need of experienced and well equipped fighting men of this there is no doubt. the English outnumbered and out-eqquipped him badly, particularly when it came to armor and horse.– Acheson Geneological Society
And sure enough, the earliest stirrings of Freemasonry- ultimately traced back to the Norman St. Clair family and the building of Rosslyn Chapel– would ride with Bruce into England. American Masons under the rule of the Grand Lodge of Ireland would eventually form the core of the Revolutionary Army before becoming absorbed in the aristocracy themselves, just like the Templars before them.
Just like the Templars, the power and arrogance of the newly-empowered American Masons would inspire a populist backlash leading the creation of the Anti-Mason Party. However, the Freemasons took the crisis as an opportunity to create a dizzying array of collegiate fraternities and civic organizations,groups that would ultimately evolve away from their mystical origins andovershadow the Masonic Orders as the backbone of the American ruling class. That’s evolution for you…
In Europe and South America, Masonic orders would foment revolutions that would overthrow or marginalize the old ruling dynasties and severely curtail the power of the Catholic Church, forcing the Vatican to establish itself as a sovereign state to protect its own power. The fortunes of the Church are in free-fall in Europe and the Americas, a process accelerated by the priestly vice of pedophilia finally being exposed to the public.
Scandals over abuse date back to the very earliest days of the Churchand were fomented by reformist radicals within the Vatican in the Middle Ages, but the fear of the Church’s power kept them out of the major media until finally exploding– due to sheer, mind-numbing volume– in the early 2000s. And despite the protestations of ridiculous Vatican shills, the crisis is not closeto being over.
Strangely enough, at the very same time that these crimes were finally being brought to light in public, private talks with a shadowy English group claiming to be the true remnant of the Knights Templar resulted in the Order being exonerated by the Holy See in 2007, the 700th Anniversary of the original Templar repression.
While the power of the Christian world has shifted ( Rupert Murdoch and the Chinese Communist Party are now the world’s largest publishers of Bibles), and with South America increasingly becoming less Catholic and more Pentecostal, it seems the Templars’ exoneration is just part of a overall evolution in the late-period history of the Church.
The Vatican is still powerful and still unimaginably wealthy, but the shift of its power base from Europe to Africa (where it will have to contend to the aggressively expansionist ideology of Islamism) seems to harbor an uncharted future for the Church. If indeed the Freemasons are the inheritors of the Templar mantle, it would seem their fortunes are in decline as well. Membership in the various Masonic Orders is dropping as the aging lodges fail to attract enough younger members to stay relevant.
Of course, the greater Masonic-derived method of grooming tomorrow’s ruling class is with us more than ever, though the regimented systems of the high-level fraternities and professional and civic organizations has nothing to do with the Mysteries or the Gnostics at all. But the same evolution seemed to happen with the Templars themselves. Money has a funny way of making even the most committed mystics break their vows.
At the same time, the Gnostic story seems to be entering a new stage, as those Swiss hierophants Jung, Hofmann and Von Daniken have popularized methods for understanding the dense, often-impenetrable visionary cosmologies of the ancient Gnostics. This process is still developing but could easily accelerate as disillusionment with the status quo intensifies.
Indeed conspiracy theory itself, as self-defeating as it can be and as tainted as it often is with fascism and fundamentalism, is nothing less than a modern reincarnation of the totalizing pessimism and suspicion of the ancient Gnostics, with the defunct “Illuminati” or the non-existent “Luciferians” taking the place of the Archons. But it’s wise to remember that genocides arealways preceded by conspiracy theorizing.
Even as the Internet and other new technologies seem to have empowered narcissism and self-absorption, they have also empowered new seekers with the tools to bypass the filtering systems of the mass media and the academic and ecclesiastical establishments.
The future of these new Gnosticisms is entirely dependent on which model their adherents choose to follow: the navel-gazing, hippy-dippy Gnosticism of the Alexandrian cults and the Bogomils, or the rigorous, unshakable Gnosticism of the Druze, the Sikhs and indeed, the original Knights Templar. The jury is still very much out on this question.
As for the Templars themselves, they have yet to really emerge from the shadows. There have always been pretender groups, but it may well turn out that the Hertfordshire Templars are different from all of the Masonic and quasi-Masonic Knight Templar orders.
Watch this space- if the situation changes, it will be a major topic for discussion around here.
