Eso’s Chronicles 162
Pope Emeritus and Christian Drones (7-1)
© Eso A.B.

This ‘cluster of thoughts’ has brought me to a difficult, and for some an unpleasant subject. The subject is difficult not only as a theme for me to write about, but to suggest as an act for others to consider as realizable.

Nevertheless, I believe there are good reasons for raising the subject.

In the previous blog (161), I suggested that Pope emeritus Cardinal Ratzinger (96 yo), reconsider as a theologian the position of the Catholic Christian superego, which was and remains the reason why princely private interest was placed before the interests of the community and thence developed in the rule of Capitalism we suffer under today.

I also suggested for the Pope emeritus to begin a rebalance of societal interests by taking a militant stance on behalf of children, who for a great number of centuries have been growing to adulthood only to realize—come age and experience—they are “survivors” of exploitation, often by means of violence. I suggested that Cardinal Ratzinger consider self-sacrifice of his life as a means to bring to the issue the attention it needs.

The superego which is cultivated today by the secular state and its institutions values the spirit only to the extent that it is a ‘virtual’ spirit, i.e., a lifeless artifice. The artifice or secularist virtual reality in our capitalist times has no relationship to “the artifice of eternity” so sweetly and lively described by Irish poet W.B. Yeats in his poem “Sailing to Bizantium” . 
I have in mind God as Act, not Word, the Act being an event in which man participates through the act of taking. As Yeats tells it:
Once out of nature I shall never take
My bodily form from any natural thing,
But (take to) such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make
Of hammered gold and gold enamelling
To keep a drowsy Emperor awake;
Or set upon a golden bough to sing
To lords and ladies of Byzantium
Of what is past, or passing, or to come.”
[My apologies to Yeats for making obvious (bolded type) changes and emphases to his poem.]
As an advocate for replacing the secular superego, with a superego inspired by the divine, I have been following the Acts of God by taking interest in the Acts of immolation by the ludi* (people) of Tibet.

As the following link from the BBC tells: over 100 Tibetans have immolated themselves (doused themselves with a flammable liquid and then lit a match) in protest over the occupation of their country by the Chinese government.

Self-immolation is an Act of ‘not-violent terror’ par excellence, a theme I discuss somewhere among the first 100 blogs of these chronicles. A gruesome, extremely painful, crippling if survived, not-violent terror is one of the last desperate acts of human subjectivity in an attempt to assert its sovereignty over the superego of the State and religion seized by secularism.

[Incidentally, I do not recommend painful forms of death to anyone. Such a death, I believe, is forced on populations by governments which forbid the sale of pain-killing drugs. This intimidates actions by people and seizes God-like powers for themselves.]

If Pope emeritus, Cardinal Ratzinger, were to commend the Tibetans for their brave deeds, he will be no more than commending the stories told about the resistance of early Christians to the Caesars of Roman Empire for their self-sacrifice rather than honour Caesar by calling him ‘God’. At the same time, the Cardinal will be taking a stand as a citizen of the state of Vatican against secular superego of China, which recently (this past January) issued a decree that stipulates:

that anyone aiding immolations will be charged with murder. (next to last paragraph)

Of course, ‘aiding’ is not the same thing as ‘commending’. Nevertheless, it is possible that China’s Supreme Court  will choose to interpret ‘commending’ as being a synonym of ‘aiding’ (another name in the game of God as Word). In this eventuality, the Pope emeritus may point out that the Papal Ring was once believed to be a ‘mystical’ form of the foreskin of Jesus. At least this is the status that St. Catherine of Siena, a Doctor of the Church, claimed for the ring she wore as a sign of her betrothal to Jesus.** The foreskin or Holy Prepuce, saved  from God’s circumcision by Catholic Christians, is the only part of Jesus acknowledged by the Church to never have ascended to heaven, but remained on Earth.

The superego of the Chinese leadership—only virtually alive—will give a laugh over such Western superstitions. However, since the prepuce of Jesus, no matter how mystical, real or unreal, now remains as the only symbol of non-supernatural divinity on Earth. It is—for that reason —the only symbol under which one may oppose the attempts of the superego of government to reduce all real life to virtual life.

Even more intimidating for Muslims and Christians is the fact that most governments of our planet support Maoist Chinese, Stalinist Soviet, and U.S. and E.U. neo-Christian  forms of Secularism. Worse than intimidating is that neo-Christianity, the mother of all Western False Flags, has infiltrated American military forces as a “religion” and is fundamentalist secularist rather than pietist in orientation. While accusing Muslims of ‘terrorism’, the real terrorists are the European and American neo-Christians (whether secularists or misguided religious) now under the elitist secular flags of the Pentagon and NATO.

In sum: the secular elites of the above mentioned allegiances having successfully perpetrated a spiritual False Flag operation on their own and other territories are now perpetrating a military occupation of same by way of military drones .

A war of an entirely new dimension has begun.

* “Ludi” –an interesting word , though easily passed over. The once well known English Luddites , the ones who smashed the frames of weaving machines, are—irrespective of the fact that the first Luddite was one Ned Ludd --closely bound with the ancient origin of the word. The word for ‘people’ in German is ‘Leute’. In my native Latvian language ‘ludi’ is echoed in the name for people, re: llaudis; as well as in the word for permissiveness: llyaut or at-llyaut; in English it also leaves traces in the word ‘lewd’.
