The Moneytheist Commons (VII)
Because nature knows that this test is inevitable may be one of the reasons why it causes one to age. After all, only when one is old (enough) and has seen what life has to offer, physical exhaustion may make one even eager to see what comes next—even if it is no more than a look into the face of Emptiness http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-qBHWYPs8Fww/TfKg5PvIRZI/AAAAAAAAAKk/6bWtX1a3olI/s400/picture-15.png .
The neo-Christian Church is vociferously opposed to such a perspective. In the following link, the president of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture, Cardinal Ravasi http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-22462181, tells that worshipping Santa Muerte (blog 175) is a "degeneration of religion".... Cardinal Ravasi said the practice was "anti-religious". "Religion celebrates life, but here you have death," he said. "It's not religion just because it's dressed up like religion; it's a blasphemy against religion", the Cardinal continued.
is Ravasi talking about? His own, no doubt. He hits the nail on the head if at
the back of his head, he allies his ‘religion’ with capitalism, which is whence its chief support,
ever since Charlemagne decided to remove the spiritual centre from the East and
move it to the West, comes from. Catholicism (and its offshoots), which stand
for the exclusivity of human rights for the wealthy (originally the French
Princes), which have ever since tried to fool the poor and uneducated that it
is their ‘right’ also. The last is a peculiar assertion, given that
has but choreographed empty ceremonies. How did this ‘religion’ become the
ruling ideology? “By incorporating a series of crucial motifs and aspirations
of the oppressed,” says one philosopher”.* There is no shortage of those who
are fooled. Vatican
The claim by Cardinal Ravasi that religion celebrates life is simply untrue. At least it was never true before Catholicism tried through yet another Cardinal, one named Peter to impose such a ‘truth cum lie’ on behalf of the wealthy on the poor http://i.qkme.me/3p345z.jpg . To understand the nature of this ‘truth’, we have to take another look at the ritual known as the Last Supper, in which the elders of a given community share in a sacred pie within which is hid a piece of the ‘body of the Gods’, a piece of coal. It was Jesus’ fate to draw this piece, whereby he became a Sacred King.
It was this archaic
ritual that ensured (the Last Supper occurred before Jesus arrived in
) that their
community was ruled in the most ‘democratic’ way possible. Because no one is
free of mistakes, knows this, and is prepared to pay for any trespass with
one’s life, the community is ever forgiving. This commitment was the reason why
the secular lords wished to seize and kill the Chosen One. They could stop the
tradition only if they discovered who had drawn the sacred piece of coal before
the people learned of it. This is why they arranged with Peter, who acted as the
purser of the traveling court of the Sacred King, that he would pay Judas, one
of the twelve who acted as Basil’s servants, thirty pieces of silver to kiss
Jesus, and indicate through the kiss who had drawn the St. Death card.
Foreknowledge gave the authorities time to fabricate a crime with which to
blame Jesus. For example, the two ‘thieves’, later said to have been crucified
on either side of the heretic ‘King’, were important ‘witnesses’ to the crime.
This is what makes it likely that it was the thieves who were taken down from
the cross early and recovered, not Jesus), whom they tortured and made beg for
his life to escape the pain. Jerusalem
Before the arrival of neo-Christianity, religion used to manifest itself through a Festival celebrated by the whole COMMUNITY. Catholic Christianity succeeded in toppling the Festivals by imposing on people the meme of hubris through the dogma of individual immortality. In this way, the ruling clique succeeded in fracturing communal solidarity by kaleidoscoping into one the ritual of self-sacrifice and the ritual of public execution, and topping it with a promise of immortality. The meme of immortality has been in the ‘works’ for over two thousand years by our time, and has replaced the yeast that raised the dough of the old commons with a community bonded by no more than waterproofed paper Money.
