Week in Review: Ghouls pass over Putin...Give Nobel Peace Prize to No Names


"Paradise Lost", by John Milton

 “The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”

Hallowe'en is the favourite holiday of the year for certain kinds of people.  Around these parts, you can feel it in the air.  Fall leaves swish about in the driveway and some neighbours already have scary displays, tombstones, ghosts and devils on their front lawns and on their doorsteps.

Certain people like Hallowe'en because it celebrates the darker side of human culture and they revel in the darker side.  I like to give the darker side its due...a simple nod of the head.   Hallowe'en used to be called 'The Feast of All Saints".  Even when I was growing up, we were told this was the day dedicated to all the saints of the Catholic Church.   Nowadays, there is a very short leap between Hallowe'en and Satanism.  In today's culture, Hallowe'en is all about morbidity, monsters and the devil...and overindulging in sweets.

"Satanism" is another word used by some truther pundits to describe the modus operendi of the evil ones--perpetrators of the false flags (911), hoaxes, wars, greed, banksterism, cultural degradation, environmental disasters, GMO's, toxic vaccinations, mass surveillance and debt slavery that has taken over humanity.  I agree.  Satanism is a more accurate term than the expression "Ziofascism"...which I often use.  Ziofascism raises the spectre of racism...or Gawd forbid...anti Semitism.  Satanism more correctly describes the dark powers at work...without the cultural/race baggage.  Of course, if I started to refer to Satanism to describe the politicians in Washington/Ottawa/Tel Aviv/London and elsewhere...that might also lead to some confusion...whatever.

It all reminds me of the poetic masterpiece "Paridise Lost" by John Milton.  That, too, described an epic battle between the angelic forces of good and evil...God and "Lucifer" (Satan). 

“Better to reign in Hell, than to serve in Heaven.”
John Milton, Paradise Lost

Gawd, I wish I had paid more attention when we were covering it in English Lit!  The poem came back to me a few weeks ago when US Senator Cruz was reading Dr. Suess's "Green Eggs and Ham" in the Senate as part of a filibuster...I thought to myself how much more symbolic/instructional it would have been for him to be reading "Paradise Lost".

At any rate, the Satanists were busy last week.  They passed over Vladimir Putin, the obvious choice for the now thoroughly discredited "Nobel Peace Prize" and gave the award to some 'no names' running the "chicken with its head cut off" search for chemical weapons in Syria.  I am sure the Satanists were preening themselves with glee when they hit upon such a sinister, backhanded slap at Putin...as punishment for denying them their war.

They also started their anticipated character assassinations of Edward Snowden and all those associated with him.  "The Independent" came out with an editorial claiming Mr. Snowden's revelations put "security at risk".....Glen Greenwald retorted that these entities could no longer call themselves "journalists"  so craven was their subservience to government.  In another era there was supposed to be a separation, a creative tension, in the relationship between the press and government.  That has gone by the by.

At the centre ring of this macabre three ring circus is the financial "Sword of Damocles" hanging over the United States...ready to drop on October 17th with the "debt ceiling" deadline

“Still paying, still to owe.
Eternal woe! ”
John Milton

It's difficult for a non American to understand how a country could have arrived at this point.   Iran's Press TV and Russia's RT are my favourite sources for information... because they don't have the usual Washington shills and talking heads.  The best explanation is one I saw by blogger Wayne Madsen.   I also watched a TV debate yesterday on Press TV between two Americans...one of them said it was Ziofascism behind the wars and banksterism...the other vehemently denied that....saying it was all due to 'dirty money" running Washington...but he never elaborated and was not asked...why was the money "dirty"? Who put the "dirty money" into the system? With this kind of fractured thinking...it doesn't look good, that's for sure.

I do remember learning that author John Milton was blind.  Yet he wrote a poem so visual, so timeless and universal.  One is struck with wonder at the incongruity...like how a young man (Edward Snowden)... raised in the vapid, corrupt culture of contemporary America, had the moral clarity/courage to do what he did...

“Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind.”
John Milton, Comus

...and to survive!  Or, that a man like Vladimir Putin...raised in the cold, cynical culture of the KGB, a pragmatist who should have been blinded to human empathy.. literally saved Snowden's life...AND deterred the World from World War III... within the space of a month!  Never mind losing a Nobel Peace Prize!

“I will not deny but that the best apology against false accusers is silence and sufferance, and honest deeds set against dishonest words.”
John Milton

What we have been witnessing in the last weeks and will continue to witness in the coming days is the potential climax to a titanic battle in the never ending war between good and evil....as it ever was and ever will be.

“So shall the world go on,
To good malignant, to bad men benign,
Under her own weight groaning.”
John Milton, Paradise Lost
