Illuminated Doodoo

On May 1, 1776 (yes, you read right) Adam Weishaupt, then 20 years old and professor of Canonic Law, founded the “Order of Perfectibles” (Bund der Perfectibilisten) in Ingolstadt, Bavaria. It was later renamed the “Illuminati” society. Its symbols were Minerva’s owl of wisdom and God’s all-seeing eye – not of the God of the Christians but of some undefined higher being, which the Illuminati recognized as the creator of the universe. May 1st also happened to be the day of “Walpurgisnacht”, the ancient German celebration of witchcraft.

There is an affinity between the concepts of “illumination” and “Satan”. ‘illuminare’ from the Latin ‘lux’ = ‘light’, is Latin for ‘to make light’ or ‘enlighten’. Satan’s name is ‘Lucifer’ = ‘the light carrier’. It has often been claimed by Satanists that Satan was the first ‘illuminatus’ or intellectual (Saul Alinsky). Not sure if the same claim was ever made by the Illuminati themselves.

Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf

‘Democracy’ is a word made from the Greek words ‘demos’ and ‘cratein’, ‘the people’ and ‘to rule’, meaning that the people should rule. The Greek philosopher Polybios believed that forms of government follow each other and develop out of each other in a cyclic pattern.

Looking at the American experiment today, it seems that Polybios had a point. We seem to be at the point where the rule of a legitimate elite (the best) has turned into the rule of the worst and we are headed toward mob rule again, all the while officially calling our system “democratic”.

The Concept of Race – is it good for anything?

Races have been defined in the past almost solely based on morphological markers such as skin color, head shape, nose shape, and hair type. Attempts have been made to define human race groups based on blood type or genetic markers, but it was found that there are virtually no genetic markers that coincide with the groups defined based on morphological markers. An individual placed morphologically in one race may end up in another one based on genetics.

Putin saves the West and Zelensky kills the Jews – uh – no, wait …

Recently, I had an opportunity to listen to a presentation by Ms. Krone Schmalz, a German Putin enthusiast, who attempted to defend Putin’s war against Ukraine. Ms. Schmalz, as do many Pro-Russia people in Europe and the USA, did not say that she condoned Putin’s war of aggression. She did say, however, that we must “understand” where Putin is coming from and what his psychological and political motives are that motivated him to attack Ukraine. I have heard this from many people who listen to Russian TV and TicToc. Goebbels said that for propaganda to be credible, one must mix lies with truth and make the mixture sound plausible and reasonable. The way Ms. Schmalz sounded, she could be a Russian disinformation propagandist. But let me assume for the moment that she is not and that she really means what she says.

White Men Can Pack

When I lived with the Yebámasa Indians on the Río Piraparaná in South-East Colombia in 1977/78, one day, a group of Indians from Síoro Jáiro, a place directly on the Piraparaná consisting of four palm-leaf malocas, decided that they wanted to travel to the mission town of Mitú by canoe. Mitú was approximately 300 miles by river from Síoro Jáiro.

Boycott ‘Woke’ Companies

It used to be a cardinal rule of business to never discuss politics. Today, many business companies have chosen to alienate half of the country’s consumers/voters by smearing Donald Trump, Conservatives, Constitutionalists, and Republicans, attacking voting integrity laws, pushing for censorship of conservative speech, pushing ESG, and fomenting the toxic culture war waged against the rest of us by the extreme left wing of the Democratic Party, including by pushing the false and racist narrative of systemic racism.

Here is a list of woke businesses whose goods and services you should not buy if you consider yourself a constitutional conservative and a liberty-loving citizen. Buy from businesses that are not on the list, if possible.

Climate Skeptics and the Evolution of Knowledge

There is no uniform position of climate scientists or scientists as for that about global warming or Man-Made Global Warming (MMGW). Serious scientists have argued with convincing arguments based on scientifically verified facts against the sacraments of the MMGW religion. Here are the views of 14 of the most prolific “climate deniers” in a nutshell.
