Eso’s Chronicles 238/ 24
Addendum 1--History Husked

The reason to read  up on the Dayton Accord regarding the deliberate dismemberment by the ‘West’ of former Yugoslavia is that that failure directly reflects on the current agreement with Iran and beyond

I am no fan of the Zionists of Israel, especially not their PM Netanyahu, and see their role as a mirror image of the Muslims in Bosnia, a position that for eighteen long years (as the link argues) has fanned hatred (a la the late “Muslim leader Alija Izetbegovic who reneged on the agreement reached in Lisbon, reportedly at the urging of the American ambassador to Yugoslavia, Warren Zimmerman.”) Likewise the statements by Netanyahu who (see flwg link): “Speaking to his Cabinet, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel is not bound by the deal and reserves the right to defend itself. That is a reference to possible military action against Iran.

One reason why I believe Latvians have a direct interest in these treaties (contrary to our own Foreign Ministry where brains are believed to come as models in calcium) is that my paternal genes link me with Bosnia; and while my ancestors may not have arrived in Latvia (270 years ago) from Bosnia directly, but via the ‘heretical’ Herrnhuters from Germany, it causes me to take a ‘sovereign’ perspective of Latvian interests.

A short digression: in the 15th century Bosnia was a haven for the Cathars (Ķeceri according to Latvian Catholic derived theology) or ‘heretical’ or early (not yet usurped) Christians of Europe. Interesting evidence of this may be found in my great-great grandfather’s first name, re Gusts, which is likely submerged and out of sight evidence of what was once the highest Office among the Cathars, re gost. Preceding the ‘gost’ were two other identities, re: Krstjan (source of the name ‘Christian’? and Latvian Krišjānis) and Starac (Latvian ‘starasts’, aka ‘star-east’). Now my grand-grandfather did not identify himself as ‘vagars’, re slave driver (but ‘starasts’ or leader of a community; while owner of an inn, he also held regular Sunday religious services there); while my grandfather was a school teacher (later a newspaper editor) and at one dime the choir master of all the choirs in the Vidzeme region.

A major reason this ought to be of interest to other Latvians is because the Herrnhuters (like the Cathars) did not believe in introducing a middleman (a priest) between the individual and God; and because they are credited with rebuilding the Latvian community after the Great Northern War (Sweden vs Russia) at the beginning of the 18th century. The Herrnhuter position of maintaining a sovereign perspective cost them their due, because both the Catholic and Protestant churches inserted the priest-minister-policeman between the people and the State and essentially denied the Herrnhuter perspective. The latter calamity has permitted the current State leadership of Latvia to become ‘vagars’ (no longer identified with ‘slave driving’, but with ‘do nothing’ that helps escape the reputation of dependency on the State) to the Latvian community vis a vis Brussels, which, in the final analysis, means the denial of sovereignty or special identity for Latvians.

One further argument in support of Latvians as former Cathars: The Cathars came to their Christianity long before it was usurped by Catholicism (i.e. early globalization efforts); evidence for this is that the Cathar cross reflects the rays of the Sun (simplified to four beams). I find it amazing that a former prezident (VVF) of ‘renewed’ Latvia has researched and written so extensively about the reflection of the Sun in Latvian folk poems, without once making the connection that it was the Ķeceri who are responsible for maintaining this symbolism in Latvian folk culture. Perhaps the reason is that she spent early childhood in France and Algeria, where the persecution of Cathars began.
