What Have They Done to the Earth?

I was inspired to write this having read Wulf Ingessunu's excellent article Wights, Elves & Dwarfs on his Inglinga blog. Wulf makes this very important point:

"The Spirit of Nature is being lost whilst rampant technology destroys everything that is sacred to us on the physical plane, at the same time driving the Spirits of Nature away at the same time."

I believe that as man has increased his development of technology he has done so at the expense of his environment. This is particularly the case after the Christianisation of man when he had been taught by the church to treat the earth and the living beings upon it as a 'commodity' to be exploited and ruthlessly so!

"God blessed them, and God said unto them, 'Be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.'" (Genesis 1:28, AV)   

The Abrahamic concept of having 'dominion' over other living creatures is diametrically opposed to our pre-Christian heathen faith where man is viewed as being just another part of the ecology of the earth. It is thus life-centred, not man-centred as we find in the Abrahamic religions. This man-centred approach accounts for man's flagrant exploitation, abuse and destruction of his environment whether it be our sacred forests, jungles, seas, rivers, lakes, animals, birds, fish and even the air itself. We are now witnessing the disappearance of many animal species. The destruction of the rain forests is also contributing towards climate change and despoliation of the planet as is industrial pollution, over-fishing and the filling of our seas and oceans with plastic crap.


The over-population of the earth is intensifying this process. If this were any other species it would have been culled long ago. According to the latest global population statistics as of 1st July 2018 the world's population stands at over 7.63 billion people. When one contrasts this to 1970 (3.7 billion) this is more than double! This is forecast to increase to 9.77 billion by 2050 which is more than triple the population in 1960 (3.03 billion). see https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ This sends a shudder down my spine and I cannot help but reflect upon a certain episode of Startrek (The Mark of Gideon, episode 71, 1969) where Captain Kirk finds himself on the severely overpopulated planet of Gideon. The population of this planet have immense life spans which accounts for the overpopulation. A true hell on earth! Yet scientists are intent on discovering and developing technologies to unnaturally expand human life spans as if there were not more than enough people living today! Living to 500 This is pure insanity. Traditional wisdom (even to be found in the Bible) teaches us that 70 is a normal lifespan and 80 can be achieved if in good health. Live beyond this and you are risking disease and senility-a pointless existence! Yet our materialist British government (eager for the state pension age to keep on increasing) say that living longer is 'good news'!

"The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away." (Psalm 90:10, AV)

Mother Nature has a way of dealing with problems such as this. Not only is man overpopulating the earth and thus creating huge problems for the ecology of the planet but he is wantonly destroying his environment, thus making man (all races of man) the supreme parasite. Mother Nature, unwittingly helped by man is setting in place great devastation for mankind as disasters will strike the earth, making the fall of Atlantis a splash in a bathtub. From a purely selfish point of view all I can say is that I am glad, truly glad that I am getting old as nobody in their right mind will want to witness this.

In addition to the workings of Mother Nature we have the suicidal impulse of mankind, its never ending thirst for bloodshed and war. The vile and foul weapons of mass destruction hoarded by the criminal state of the USA and other powers have the potential to destroy practically all life upon the earth and indeed the planet itself. And yet the Trump regime is itching at its wild west trigger to unleash its evil weapons on China, Russia, North Korea, Syria and Iran-trying to make a name for himself, a lasting legacy that will outlive man. I would be very surprised if we do not witness a major conflict if not a third world war before Trump leaves the White House. However he is an old man and has nothing more to achieve-maybe it is a death wish? A death wish which he will bring upon his own country.

As man's thirst for fuel increases and the natural resources of the earth decrease instead of developing and relying upon the obvious, clean and free benefits of wind, solar and sea power he is determined to rape the earth even further, this time with the disgusting practice of fracking. Most of my English readers will be aware now of the almost weekly earth tremors that are taking place in Lancashire. Blind to the public opposition to fracking the British government in true undemocratic fashion is seeking to press ahead with yet more fracking licences, oblivious to the impending disaster that awaits us. I can only pity the insurance industry! 37 Earthquakes in Lancashire

The lyrics of Jim Morrison's When the Music's Over are strangely prescient:

"What have they done to the earth? What have they done to our fair sister? Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her. Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn and tied her with fences and dragged her down."

This week we have seen fresh warnings from United Nations scientists about the dangerous levels of greenhouse gases, the highest level in 3,000,000 years and that we are fast approaching a point of no return. Global Warming Yet Trump, the USA's biggest car salesman and arms dealer pulled the USA out of the Paris Climate Accord in July 2017. This is despite the fact that the USA is one of the world's worst offenders, second only to China in carbon dioxide emissions.


We can as individuals and collectively with people of good will counter this insanity and we can start by seeking the co-operation of the Land Wights:

"We have to reverse this process and welcome the Spirits of Nature back into our world; this is not impossible and I am sure that these Spirits of Nature will welcome our attempts at setting right what has gone wrong. In the process, as we have shown, these Spirits of Nature also help give knowledge and wisdom that will aid us in our struggle." (Wulf Ingessunu)

100 Years of the Folly of War







It is now 100 years since the end of WWI, a war in which my grandfather fought as a German soldier on both the western and eastern fronts. A war of horror, a waste of human life and the cause of a second equally stupid world war. And still the peoples of Europe have not learned from their warmongering ways. The generals who demonstrate public grief today will be at their desks tomorrow planning the next futile war on behalf of their political masters.

The politicians who agitate for war are in my opinion criminals. They do not fight the wars themselves but send thousands of young men to die as pawns on a political chessboard but my greatest anger is displayed towards those of you who are stupid enough to fight these wars. No one is compelled to take up arms-they never have been. You do so and as far as I am concerned you are little more than a human sheep. You deserve your fate tragic as that may be.

I believe that the 11th of November IS worth remembering but not in the way that it is done now. Remembrance now resembles more a badge of 'British' civic identity, an endorsement of war and 'support for the troops.' During the days of Blair there was opposition to the 'war against terror', as muted as that was but this was always countered with the idiotic mantra 'if you can't support the war, then at least support the troops.' This effectively meant 'shut up and support the war'. There have been brave conscientious objectors in WWI who refused to take up a combat role but engaged in a non-combat role such as stretcher bearer but even by doing this they were in fact supporting the war. A true conscientious objector to war should refuse to participate in any way.

By all means buy a poppy for November but it is far better that poppy be a white one-the true symbol of peace.

Hypnosis-a Useful Tool to Achieve Political Change

For many years I have been fascinated by the subject of hypnotism and how it can be used not just on an individual basis but as a tool for influencing and manipulating masses of people. Indeed my interest led me to undertake distance learning course in the basics of how to carry out hypnotic inductions for therapeutic purposes and I gained a Level 4 qualification in this subject as the result.

One thing that teachers of hypnosis, especially hypnotherapy will tell you is that the human mind can not be hypnotised against its will. I do not believe this and I am of the opinion that this is said to persuade people not to use their skills and knowledge for unethical purposes. However one may ask, what is ethical? Hypnotism CAN be used against the will, particularly if that will is weak. By contrast I would be very difficult to hypnotise as my mind is quite analytical and resistant to suggestion. Stage hypnotists know this and that is why before they carry out their act they test volunteers beforehand to gauge how resistant or willing they may be. So yes if one has a strong will it is difficult to be hypnotised against that will. However if the will is weak then it is almost child's play.

Hypnotism is used every day without people's realisation. Marketing and advertising are classic examples of its application. Repetitive television commercials are particularly effective as repetition is a key element in hypnotism. It is quite likely that those television channels with the least advertising subscribers will be the most effective channels as the same commercials are repeated frequently, usually at 15 minutes intervals. When I was young supermarket music was literally that-muzak. Indeed the subject of muzak is deserving of a study in its own right. It is a tool that used to be used to induce a light hypnotic trance in shoppers to make them more receptive to suggestion-the suggestion being to buy more products!

These days instead of employing muzak which in my opinion is not at all unpleasant to the ears modern pop music is used and much of this is of the vulgar variety. Instead of inducing a trance I find the whole ear splitting experience an annoyance, so much so that I attempt to get my shopping done very quickly! It is possible that modern day supermarket managers fail to understand the purpose of background music, thinking instead that their customers should be 'entertained'. What a pity then that they do not take into account the fact that a quarter of the population is over 55 and do not need what is left of their hearing to be bombarded by ear splitting noise! So clearly they have not grasped the concept of true supermarket muzak. Modern pop music does not have the same intended effects.

The above mentioned are examples of how the techniques of inducing a light hypnotic trance are used in the fields of commerce but it is used to most startling effect in the world of politics. It is difficult to know when these techniques were first employed by politicians but one can say with certainty that THE most effective political hypnotiser in the modern era was Adolf Hitler. It is said that his presence had a mesmerising effect on both people he encountered on a one to one basis and also on the massed crowds of supporters. There are many historical accounts of down hearted generals being revived by spending just a short time in Hitler's company. I would suspect that Hitler knew that he had this gift. His talents in this field cannot be disputed. What is a valid subject for enquiry though is whether this was a natural talent-a charisma that he was born with or did he learn these techniques? This has now become a subject of a new book by neurologist Dr David Lewis, Triumph of the Will. It certainly looks like it may be worth a read. Dr Lewis makes the claim that Hitler was hypnotised following the blindness which he suffered after a gas attack in Belgium in the closing days of WWI. The effects of the attack on his eyes were apparently minimal. What caused the blindness was a form of hysteria and this is why hypnosis was allegedly carried out on Hitler. An hypnotic suggestion was induced into Hitler by a nerve specialist Dr Edmund Forster, causing him to believe in his own god like ability and self confidence. What is significant about the gas attack is that the Hitler which emerged after the attack seemed to be quite a different Hitler to the one before it. Whilst I have not yet read the book I am inclined to provisionally accept Dr Lewis's thesis.

Dr Lewis also alleges that another hypnotist had a remarkable influence upon Hitler, a Moravian Jew named Erik Jan Hanussen (born Hermann Steinschneider). I am not sure what Dr Lewis's claims regarding Hanussen are but I do know that he taught Hitler crowd control techniques and mass psychology and the effective use of dramatic gestures and pauses. Despite his ancestry Hanussen was an enthusiastic supporter of National Socialism. Hanussen was murdered on 25th March 1933, allegedly by a group of SA men. Hanussen predicted the Reichstag fire which occurred on 27th February 1933. It is speculated that the prediction may have been less of a clairvoyant nature and more to do with inside knowledge that the true orchestrators of the fire were to be found in the National Socialist hierarchy. It is alleged that the Reichstag was set ablaze in order to provide some sort of legitimacy to have a general crackdown on any opposition. According to General Franz Halder it was Goering who was responsible for the fire and boasted of the fact at Hitler's 54th birthday lunch in 1943. (The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, William L. Shirer). Goering however denied any involvement at his trial in Nuernberg. We can of course only speculate as the opinions of historians are divided.
