I’m not going to bother proving every single point, part of this is going to be preliminary research for a “fictional” vignette for Shivastus Solomonicus. Many of you know that I am rather gifted at kabbalah, and an expert on Jewish Exegesis among some of my other talents. So it would not behoove me to explain everything to novitiates. I’m going to talk to the people that at least know something. It had never really piqued my interests before but recently I have been studying Pythagoras, and realized how much of an influence he had on Plato. What we know about Plato is actually completely inextricable from what we know about Pythagoras. We literally can’t tell where one ends and the other begins. We don’t know why Pythagoras broke his own vows of secrecy in order to teach Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates so many of the highest level initiatory secrets. Did they have their own secret society outside of the Pythagorean math cults?
Of further interest is that we see none of the layered meaning and nuanced coded sophistry that we see in the Old and New Testament in the Quran or the Hadith. While it attempts to mimic the verbiage and typography it is completely flat and one dimensional, given to a single understanding and meaning. The Quran and Hadith are obviously the work of a different inferior perspective. Whoever wrote them have no understanding of the Jewish practice of imbedding layered meaning into text through the practice of PaRDeS a phonetic homage to paradise. To understand is to be in the Promised Land.
There is no doubt in my mind that the people that wrote the bible possessed the secrets for creating the major civilizations that were “blessed by God” in the form of their becoming World Powers at one time or another. For the math cults every mathematical formula was a name of god which you didn’t earn the right to hear until you had passed psychological and moral tests. You were in fact always being tested. You were never allowed to speak a name of god to one who hadn’t earned the right to hear it. The bible was written as a secret history for these people who were constantly running west away from the tyrannical people that would steal their secrets and destroy them.
Now I actually stumbled on this information when I was researching a quote by Plato: “Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.” It just so happens that it comes from a part of the Republic in which he was discussing the 5 Regimes that signal the Cycles of Decline of a Civilization. According to Plato the most ideal form of Government was the Aristocracy with the Philosopher King as Ruler. After a certain period of time had elapsed and a certain number of mistakes had been made this would lead to a degradation of Government and ruler ship into the form of “Timocracy” ruled by a Warrior King. So we started with Solomon and we Devolved into David, what we see immediately is that the Judeo-Christian religion was interested in reversing the process of decay.
A timocracy (timē, “price, worth” and -κρατία -kratia, “rule”) is a state where only property owners may participate in government. The more extreme forms of timocracy, where power derives entirely from wealth with no regard for social or civic responsibility, may shift in their form and become a plutocracy where the wealthy and powerful use their power to entrench their wealth. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timocracy
Which again would devolve into Oligarchy, or ruling families. In this Regime the middle class is gone and you have the haves and the have nots. There are no Military Victories & wealth is squandered and lost. Will Durant once said that Oligarchies are created when rulers give relatives they are financially supporting positions of authority so they don’t have to financially support them anymore. Knowing why they received the position they make no effort to execute the office faithfully. Instead they leach as much money out of the people as they can with taxation and don’t make their lives better. Wise but poor people have no voice and no influence for the better on the government. That form of rule then devolves into Democracy.
Democracy is a very bad word for Plato. There is to much variety and no virtue, the masses are ruled by their passions. The least desirable element of society breeds and rapidly grows. They are literally breeding violence and ignorance. This then evolves into Tyranny.
Under tyranny nobody has any discipline, self-restraint, intelligence or wisdom. It is complete anarchy, people are lawless, and godless. There is only violence. The Tyrant king must kill many people in order to maintain order and prevent himself from being deposed and killed.
You will notice the close correlation between the Dream of Nebuchadnezzar and Plato’s 5 regimes. What I have just expounded is the true meaning of the dream. This pattern seems to repeat not only throughout history but in the actual history of a single government. It is an emergent property that seems to work like a fractal. Not only did it start at the beginning of civilization it also happens in the life cycle of a Nation. Plato made reference to a specific number which he didn’t overtly name known as the Number of Man that governs the cycle. He mentioned a number, which I believe is the actual number at another time 216. There are several ways of arriving at this number that connect to many of Plato’s theories, but perhaps the most interesting to me is multiplying the number 6 x 6 x 6. Also of interest is the fact that in 2002 the United States of America turned 216 years old.
I am one of those that believes that the ancients did possess Wisdom and Secret knowledge that we have lost or forgotten. Even if the numbers aren’t right that doesn’t mean that the psychology is wrong but only time will tell. What I do know is that Kabbalists were obsessed with gematria just as were the early philosophers and Pythagoras. The Monadists of which Pythagoras was one believed that the universe was generated by numbers. He said something I can’t find right now that associated name and number, suggesting that number was greater than name because it actually created the thing. Remember Adam in the garden of Eden naming all the animals, (binomial nomenclature) as God Numbered them?
Is a logical fallacy people make when looking at history or at the bible. In order to properly evaluate and judge what happened you have to understand what was happening at the time, the context in which a thing was said or done. The Abrahamic Law Code was created when Abraham was trying to separate the identity of his people from the invasive Tyrannical Babylonian Death Cults intent on submitting the entire world and spreading their influence all over the world with the practice of rape, genocide, back-door political alliances, bribing, lying and ransom. When you are fighting an evil enemy you have to use tactics that will succeed against that enemy, that doesn’t mean you are responsible for the state of the world or that tactics being used at that time. Atheists assume that the Judeo-Christian god condoned or even created rape or kidnapping, that is not the case, when you enemy attacks preemptively, and has a plan to steal your women, impregnate them, and out-breed you, you have to be able to maintain a cohesive group of people and continue populating the earth, otherwise you might as well surrender, and let them kill you.
The Persio-Babylonian Death Cults continued their campaign to submit the entire world to their evil, despotic, tyranny, by any means available. Every time the Babylonians conquered the Jews, they dragged them back to Babylon for “re-education”. When Babylon had spread it’s influence to Egypt, Moses had to march in the wilderness for 40 years to separate those Jews that sympathized with the Mizraim (The Nations, Egypt and Babylon).
After Solomon created the temple, notice the map above as evidence that The Jews existed there and had influence, Babylon once again conquered the Jews and took them back to Babylon for “re-education”.
When Babylon spread it’s influence to Ancient Greece asking for Earth and Water.
The demand for earth and water symbolized that those surrendering to Persians gave up all their rights over their land and every product of the land. Giving earth and water they recognized the Persian authority over everything; even their lives belonged to the king of Persians. Then negotiations would take place to specify the obligations and the benefits of the liegemen.
The phrase earth and water, even in modern Greek, symbolizes unconditional subordination to a conqueror.
According to the modern historian J. M. Balcer, the significance of earth and water is that they were Zoroastrian symbols and representative of vassalage to the Persian Empire. “Persian heralds traveled throughout Greece demanding the recognition of Persian Suzerainty and the Zoroastrian symbols of earth and water, the marks of vassalage…”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_and_water#Interpretation
The battle of Thermopoli was fought, nobody ever asks themselves why the Spartans use the same number of fighters as the shock troups of Joshua, 300 men, and the correspondence this has the the numeric value of the letter Shin.
When the Roman Roads were created which allowed the rapid spread of Christianity after it had attracted Highway men, nobody asks why there were people there using Hamas like tactics on the Roman Centurians.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicarii)
Nobody asks why Jesus openly despised the followers of the Abrahamic Law code from ancient Babylon. The Samaritans, Sadducees, and Pharisees, all followed the Babylonian interpretation of the Law which wasn’t even really jewish.
5These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. matthew 10
Nobody notices that Josephus was a Pharisee, that he had been by the Flavius Caesar line as a Patronage. Nobody mentions that they had a reason to not mention Jesus because he was disruptive to what the Rich Elites in Rome were trying to do.
Nobody mentions that the early Christians were killed by Romans who laughed at them being a peaceful people that would not fight.
Noboby notices Rome didn’t embrace Christianity until Constantine, who was a Flavius Caesar. Maybe the Flavians with their intimate knowledge of the Persians realized an alliance with them was unsustainable and no longer desirable…
Nobody realizes that what Mohammed actually did was resurrect not the Abrahamic Law code, in it’s true form but the invasive Death Cult of Ancient Babylon/Persia. Because Christianity had been embraced by Rome this was a kind of rhetorical camouflage, a kind of equivocation, to mask his actual intent.
Nobody mentions that Rome after being ejected from it’s land by Muslims, then started the Crusades as a response to Islam and to reclaim it’s land. Also at this time The Holy Roman Empire becomes the Roman Catholic Church, because of having been evicted from it’s land.
Nobody mentions that Islam hasn’t changed since the converted the Berber’s of northern Africa also known as the Barbarians to the Romans, and the Barbary coast pirates. Since the revolution of Ibn Tumrt the Berber’s killed off all of the Artists and Intelligencia, Islam has remained the same.
Nobody mentions that muslim women, Jewish women and Nuns cover their hair so that they will not attract the lust of the Fallen Angels and get raped, but only one of those religions condones rape as a form of punishment and psychological warfare. The same religion that allows for Women to be kept as property under the Auspices of War Booty scriptures.
Nobody mentions that Islam has a history of brutalizing women which is well documented in religious history as well as secular history, the same history that Muslims find offensive to be taught in schools but is occurring right now in the world.
Since the dawn of civilization their have been two instincts in man at war with one another. Tyranny and Democracy. One of the weapons or tools in that battle was the Theater but Theater predisposes itself to more good than harm precisely because of how it succeeds in creating value for the people witnessing it.
THEATER COMES FROM THE WORDS THEORY AND THEOS
I wish I had recorded the source, I thought it would be easy to find again but most etymologies don’t go back as far as they could.
The English word theory was derived from a technical term in philosophy in Ancient Greek. As an everyday word, theoria, θεωρία, meant “a looking at, viewing, beholding”, but in more technical contexts it came to refer to contemplative or speculative understandings of natural things, such as those of natural philosophers, as opposed to more practical ways of knowing things, like that of skilled orators or artisans. The word has been in use in English since at least the late 16th century.Modern uses of the word “theory” are derived from the original definition, but have taken on new shades of meaning, still based on the idea that a theory is a thoughtful and rational explanation of the general nature of things. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory#Ancient_uses
Theory is a contemplative and rational type of abstract or generalizing thinking, or the results of such thinking. Depending on the context, the results might for example include generalized explanations of how nature works. The word has its roots in ancient Greek, but in modern use it has taken on several different related meanings. A theory is not the same as a hypothesis. A theory provides an explanatory framework for some observation, and from the assumptions of the explanation follows a number of possible hypotheses that can be tested in order to provide support for, or challenge, the theory. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory#Ancient_uses
The word theos (θεός) of course being the Greek word for god and Enthusiasm, Enthusiasmos meaning literally “in God”.
When I was creating Shared State Theory of Communication I realized that Theater had an uncanny ability to “communicate a state” which means a thought, a perspective, or an idea. One is inclined to sympathize with the character portrayed as the protagonist. Throughout the play of film one projects one’s sense of self onto the protagonist and this elicit’s emotions akin to those of the protagonist. In a manner of speaking you get to walk in the shoes of another person or look through their eyes, a shared state.
PROPAGANDA OR EDUCATION
For those of you that are skeptical of my research, remember that Plato was a contemporary of Pythagorus and his math cults and Plato used the allegory of the cave. The cave represented the Greek caste system. The director (Philosopher King), could directly the form of the good. The Guardians basically did what they were told and manipulated the images, and the slaves or non citizens that didn’t understand the ideals/idols of the culture were subjected to indoctrination in the form of observing the shadows on the wall of the theater. It is also of interest that early Christians who were more like a Secret Society when they were created, and I believe Christianity traces it’s origins to the Pythagorean math cults, held their secret initiations in underground caves. Ask yourself this, Why do some cultures have long, proud, traditions of art and literature and others do not?
This tool can either be used for propaganda purposes as it was by various tyrants and dictators or it can be used as an educational tool or even a political tool. When of the great uses of the Civilized Western world is the use of Satire, more or less forbidden in the Tyrannical and Islamic countries where theater is used solely for the purpose of Propaganda. Muslims have sentiments that excesses of laughter are a bad thing and that one should not mock or ridicule others, raping, torturing, removing limbs, and be-headings are more acceptable. . .
One would, most likely, first remember “Leni” Riefenstahl and the Nazi propaganda machine. Hitler used the Pollock joke as a form of psychological warfare to lower the self esteem of his opponents before he attacked Poland and killed off all of their intellectuals and artists.
SATIRE, SADISM, SATYRS, AND THE SABBATH
When I was creating Organic Computer Theory which states that Neural Myelination passes onto our children in the form of cellular memory, I noticed how certain types of intelligences were more prevalent in certain groups of people. For example the Jewish people have more comedians than almost any other group of people and far more female comedians than any other group of people.
I believe that they integrated the genes, which they considered valuable, of a group of transgressively sacral artists that were allowed to exist in early Greece for the purpose of keeping a certain denomination of Persians from feeling comfortable in their state. Narcissistic Psychopaths don’t have a sense of humor about themselves and can’t stand being mocked. Socrates, himself, exposed the “Pretenders to Wisdom” and his entourage used to eaves drop on his conversations and laugh as they saw through the illogic and unreason of the Pseudo Wise.
The name Cynic derives from Ancient Greek κυνικός (kynikos), meaning “dog-like”, and κύων (kyôn), meaning “dog” (genitive: kynos). It seems certain, however, that the word dog was also thrown at the first Cynics as an insult for their shameless rejection of conventional manners, and their decision to live on the streets. Diogenes, in particular, was referred to as the Dog, a distinction he seems to have revelled in, stating that “other dogs bite their enemies, I bite my friends to save them.”
Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind,
The King (or Ruler) of Mankind,
The God (or judge) of Mankind,-
From the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his whisper),-
(The same) who whispers into the hearts of Mankind,-
Among Jinn and among men.
In Islamic theology, Shaytan and his minions are “whisperers,” who whisper into the chests of men and women, urging them to commit sin. This is where the desire to sin comes from, according to Islam.
Jewish people were instructed to teach their children a craft so that they could be gainfully employed and provide for themselves wherever they went in the world. Every major World Civilization has always had one thing in common, a large middle class, craftsmen could move horizontally and nomadicly with relative freedom. The Jewish people were more or less nomads because they were constantly getting exiled. As they moved about from here to there they were exposed to different ideas and philosophies. Ideas can be a very dangerous thing. Theater can basically frame a new form of the good, a new god.
idea (n.) late 14c., “archetype of a thing in the mind of God; Platonic `idea,'” from Latin idea “idea,” and in Platonic philosophy “archetype,” from Greek idea“ideal prototype,” literally “the look of a thing (as opposed to the reality); form; kind, sort, nature,” from idein “to see,” from PIE *wid-es-ya-, suffixed form of root *weid- “to see” (see vision). Sense of “result of thinking” first recorded 1640s. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=idea&searchmode=none
At this particular moment in time the vast majority of Secret Society members are entertainers, both actors and musicians, they are the current “middle class” craftsmen…
A huge help in putting together my theories was the work of Okko Behrends. What I do is I look for the movement of ideas, words, philosophies, processes, practices (praxis) from one culture to another over time. These create rhetorical tautologies or identical patterns. Some cultures adopt and keep those patterns because of an affinity and others do not.
Frankly I think that the Augur’s of Pre-Greek Minoan cult were originally from India and in India I believe they were called the Aghori.
The Aghori in Shaivism.
The Aghori are known to engage in post-mortem rituals. They often dwell in charnel grounds, have been witnessed smearing cremationashes on their bodies, and have been known to use bones from human corpses for crafting skull bowls (which Shiva and other Hindu deities are often iconically depicted holding or using) and jewelry. Due to their practices that are contradictory to orthodox Hinduism, they are generally opposed.
Many Aghori gurus command great reverence from rural populations as they are supposed to possess healing powers gained through their intensely eremitic rites and practices of renunciation and tápasya. They are also known to meditate and perform worship in haunted houses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aghori
8 minutes in Behrend’s defines Auctoritatus as a form of authority not based on force but based on reason, what I refer to as Sapiential Authority.
In ancient Rome, Auctoritas referred to the general level of prestige a person had in Roman society, and, as a consequence, his clout, influence, and ability to rally support around his will. Auctoritas was not merely political, however; it had a numinous content and symbolized the mysterious “power of command” of heroic Roman figures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auctoritas#Auctoritas_principis
44 minutes okko quotes cicero
Auctoritas is determined by it’s good results and it’s success and by the merit of reason. The High priest of the Augure’s didn’t create the law, he didn’t manufacture it, he expounded the law that already existed in the universe the Law that governed success. They were readers of omens, signs, and portents.
The augur was a priest and official in the classical world, especially ancient Rome and Etruria. His main role was the practice of augury, interpreting the will of the gods by studying the flight of birds: whether they are flying in groups or alone, what noises they make as they fly, direction of flight and what kind of birds they are. This was known as “taking the auspices.” The ceremony and function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society—public or private—including matters of war, commerce, and religion.
The Roman historian Livy stresses the importance of the augurs: “Who does not know that this city was founded only after taking the auspices, that everything in war and in peace, at home and abroad, was done only after taking the auspices?”
It was also antithetical to tyranny. At 14 minutes tyranny = kingship. The Augur, much like the president is supposed to be, (I am glaring at you Obama) is not above the law, they are also under the law. This isn’t from Okko Behrends, but notice how to Remus was not chosen as the first king of Rome because he lived on Aventine hill which was full of “inauspicious birds”. The reason the birds were present was because Aventine hill was used for the disposal of garbage and dead bodies, remember if you will that the Aghori also live in grave yards.
Roman augurs were part of a collegium of priests who shared the duties and responsibilities of the position. At the foundation of the Republic in 510 BC, the patricians held sole claim to this office.
Augury sought the divine will regarding any proposed course of action which might affect Rome’s pax, fortuna and salus (peace, good fortune and wellbeing). Political, military and civil actions were sanctioned by augury, historically performed by priests of the college of augurs and by haruspices on behalf of senior magistrates.
According to Cicero, the auctoritas of ius augurum included the right to adjourn and overturn the process of law: consular election could be – and was – rendered invalid by inaugural error. For Cicero, this made the augur the most powerful authority in the Republic.
In ancient Rome the auguria were considered to be in equilibrium with the sacra (“sacred things” or “rites”) and were not the only way by which the gods made their will known. The augures publici (public augurs) concerned themselves only with matters related to the state.
The jus augurale (augural law) was rigorously secret, therefore very little about the technical aspects of ceremonies and rituals has been recorded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augur
If you examine the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra you will find that the deep intimate conversation between Shiva and Shakti about the nature of reality becomes the basis of philosophical and scientific reasoning. It became the Sohbet of Rumi and Shams and before that it was the intimate conversations that Jesus had with his disciples and before that it was the discussion of the Rabbi’s discussing Torah, or the law of the universe among themselves.
This became the Parrhesia of the ancient Greeks:
Reason is the capacity for consciously making sense of things, applying logic, establishing and verifying facts, and changing or justifying practices, institutions, andbeliefs based on new or existing information. It is closely associated with such characteristically human activities as philosophy, science, language, mathematics, and art, and is normally considered[by whom?] to be a definitive characteristic of human nature. The concept of reason is sometimes referred to as rationality and sometimes as discursive reason, in opposition to intuitive reason.
- The original Greek term was “λόγος”logos, the root of the modern English word “logic” but also a word which could mean for example “speech” or “explanation” or an “account” (of money handled).
- As a philosophical term logos was translated in its non-linguistic senses in Latin as ratio. This was originally not just a translation used for philosophy, but was also commonly a translation for logos in the sense of an account of money. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reason
In rhetoric, parrhesia is a figure of speech described as: to speak candidly or to ask forgiveness for so speaking. There are three different forms of parrhesia. Parrhesia is its nominal form, is translated from Latin to English meaning “free speech”. Parrhesiazomai in its verbal form is to use parrhesia, and parrhesiastes is the one who uses parrhesia for example “one who speaks the truth”.  The term parrhesia first appears in Greek literature in Euripides and can be found and used in ancient Greek texts all throughout the end of the fourth century and during fifth century A.D.  The term is borrowed from the Greek παρρησία (πᾶν “all” and ῥῆσις “utterance, speech”) meaning literally “to speak everything” and by extension “to speak freely,” “to speak boldly,” or “boldness.” It implies not only freedom of speech, but the obligation to speak the truth for the common good, even at personal risk.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parrhesia
and that became the sciences, the logy’s, or the logic of, teleology, biology, psychology, ecology, geology, etc. Each logy would have a guru or teacher that specialized in that subject. The entire western civilization evolved out of this process as well as the Western brain and the way western people think in general. Our separation of powers, our checks and balances in the government, our sense of propriety, all of them came from the same place.
27 minutes: The name Augustus was chosen by Octavian chose the name Augustus the name of the High Priest of the Augure’s instead of the name Romulus the first king of Rome, he chose between the two names.
‘In my sixth and seventh consulships [28-27 BC], after I had extinguished civil wars, and at a time when with universal consent I was in complete control of affairs, I transferred the republic from my power to the dominion of the senate and people of Rome…After this time I excelled all in influence [auctoritas], although I possessed no more official power [potestas] than others who were my colleagues in the several magistracies.’ (Res Gestae Divi Augusti 34.1-3)[]
46 minutes, the separation of powers, the leader can assume command of the military upon leaving the polis, but upon entering the polis must relinquish control of the millitary, (a legitimate leader must never use the military against his people).
Compare that with what President Obama recently did, is he giving power back to the people of the united states? Is he more like Augustus or Julius Caesar?
In the exact sense, a tyrant is an individual who arrogates to himself the royal authority without having a right to it. This is how the Greeks understood the word ‘tyrant’: they applied it indifferently to good and bad princes whose authority was not legitimate. [Rousseau, “The Social Contract”] http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=tyrant
In a commentary of Oedipus I once read the author argued that Oedipus Rex should rightly have been called Oedipus Tyrannous because the original term didn’t have a negative meaning, it just meant popular ruler, Julius Caesar was very popular, he also was a usurper of the law.
PREEMPTIVE ARGUMENTS FOR THE HATERS
You are about to use the moving the goal fallacy with yourself as the goal and we are going to have an argument of infinite regress where you refuse to believe what I have just told you no matter how often I support it with facts. You are not a linguisitic philosopher, an analytical philosopher or a philologist, I am. Moreover, I am correct.
The Symbols above is known as the hamsa, it originated in India and was associated with the Jains, who were the Janis mentioned in the story of Moses. The name comes from the Hindu concept of Harmlessness known as Ahimsa, notice the similar phonology?
Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli:avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘not to injure’. The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm. Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and it applies to all living beings – including all animals – according to many Indian religions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahimsa
The word itself derives from So Ham the inbreaths and outbreaths of Brahma if you are familiar with my work you know that I believe that Abraham and Brahma are one and the same, I am not the first or the only person who believes this.
When it applies to a person’s name, according to Vedic philosophy it means identifying oneself with the universe or ultimate reality. Some say that when a child is born it cries Koham-Koham which means Who am I? That is when the universe replies back Soham. You are the same as I am. It also stems from the Sanskrit word which means, “self pride.”
“May [God] bless the lads, and let them carry my name, along with the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac. May they increase like fish in the land.” (Gen. 48:16)
The Talmud (Berachot 55b) explains that Joseph shared a special quality with fish:
“The fish in the waters are concealed by the water, and thus not susceptible to the Evil Eye. So too, the descendants of Joseph are not susceptible to the Evil Eye.” http://ravkooktorah.org/VAYEHI59.htm
Kabbalists such as myself know that “water” is a metaphor for Torah which is synonymous with the law of the Universe that is studied by rabbis, and augurs, and expounded. Fish live in the water, so this zen like koan, which is so paradoxical is saying that the philosophers, the rational people need to be increased. It is these philosophers who are protected from the evil eye.
The Hebrew noun kohen is most often translated as “priest”, whether Jewish or pagan, such as the priests of Baal or Dagon, though Christian priests are referred to in Hebrew by the term komer (Hebrew כומר). The word derives from a Semitic root common, at minimum, to the Central Semitic languages; the cognateArabic wordكاهنkāhin means “soothsayer, augur, or priest“.
Our Founding Fathers in their Genius and Love for us provided for us certain Positive Freedoms. They created for us a government with checks and balances to protect us from tyranny in any form. Our Representative Democracy was created to protect us from Tyranny in any form and one of those forms was The tyranny of the majority.
tyr•an•ny (ˈtɪr ə ni)
n., pl. -nies.
Obama has embraced identity based politics and in doing so he is catering to the tyranny of the majority in order to arbitrarily turn the tide of public opinion in his favor. Name dropping Ferguson Missouri in front of the United Nations, how would he feel if Michele Obama aired their dirty laundry in public?
Catering to the Mexican vote and the Vote of the Muslim majority the fastest growing population of the most illiterate and violent people on earth, is an obvious breach of protocol.
The phrase “tyranny of the majority” (or “tyranny of the masses“), used in discussing systems of democracy andmajority rule, involves the scenario in which decisions made by a majority place its interests above those of an individual or minority group, constituting active oppression comparable to that of tyrants and despots. In many cases a disliked ethnic, religious or racial group is deliberately penalized by the majority element acting through the democratic process.
Supermajority rules, constitutional limits on the powers of a legislative body, and the introduction of a Bill of Rights have been used to counter the problem. A separation of powers may also be implemented to prevent the problem from happening internally in a government.
Obama, is planning on writing laws and passing them all by himself.
Obama was touted as the next Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was the great Uniter, he brought the people together and kept the Union in tact. Obama is more like the great divider, we have never been more divided as a nation, Feminists, Christians, Muslims, Mexicans, Homosexuals. It is more like he is trying to start a Civil War than prevent one.
Obama, intellectually, never developed beyond the point of being a biased lawyer, he never even tried to become the mental equivalent of a judge. He was always one sided and prejudiced. He has always been on one side, his own side, projecting his sense of self onto people that he identifies with and incapable of being impartial and judicious.
Our government was created to be a meritocracy of Reason and Results, not a tyranny of issues. The world is not a better place since Obama’s rule began nor is the Nation. To reward people based on their issues and their feelings of victimization when they haven’t raised themselves to a place where they can create value for people other than themselves, and to put them in positions of authority as equals is a sabotage of our government. Failure is not equal to success. Reason is not equal to unreason. Tacitly validating people’s emotional appeals is a dynamic tautology of a logical fallacy. The intensity of your emotion doesn’t make you any more correct.
In order to unleash the HIGHEST COMMON GOOD you need the consent of the wisest and most reasonableand most educated. What Obama is doing is invoking the LOWEST COMMON GOOD. He is dragging all Americans down to equality with hood rats, and welfare babies in the ghettos of the United States that only parasite off the economy, and they will only ever parasite off the economy because while they benefit from an increased quality of life in the United States they are also contemptuous of our values, the values that create the surplus that creates their quality of life.
Every act of theft or unwarranted gain in a monetary unit decreases all of the value of all of the money in that monetary unit proportionately. Instead of being lead by our better angels Obama is being lead by his worser demons.
There are certain terms that are synonymous with tyranny.
Arbitrary comes from the Latin arbitrarius, the source of arbiter; someone who is tasked to judge some matter. An arbitrary legal judgment is a decision made at the discretion of the judge, not one that is fixed by law. In some countries, a prohibition of arbitrariness is enshrined into the constitution. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitrariness
When one rules in such a way as to create a disparate impact in favor of a people incapable of reimbursing or equitably returning whatever they were granted, and without an inclination to be appreciative for whatever gain they accrue from the source of that accrual, that is an act of theft and sabotage. That is rewarding failure and punishing success.
I will leave you with this…
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;
We…solemnly publish and declare, that these colonies are and of a right ought to be free and independent states…and for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honour.”
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
