EC 468 Hiermalgamy

Hiermalgamos and Other Names

Hieros Gamos means Holy Marriage, and ‘hiermalgamy’ means a forced holy marriage or mismarriage perpetrated by secular authorities using taxation as the scar that in former times slave masters seared into the flesh of their slaves to mark them as their property.

Today the irons of slavery are more sophisticated, and therefore less visible. Still, whether we are a U.S. citizen or a Latvian, our respective governments jealously keep track of us. A free human being, such as once lived in the wood or the field, belongs to the past. Yet being homeless will get uss a register number in a potter’s field.

By some strange alchemy (or refusal to admit otherwise), ‘hiermalgamy’ has become identified as a ‘natural’, even a God-given process, whereby Hieros Gamos, the marriage of consciousness onto nature, becomes identified as marriage of humans to monkey like beings—such is the interpretation given so-called humans of our time by Western Christians and their adherents all over the globe.

If one looks closely, there remains some evidence of a time when human beings and nature lived in near proximity to each other. This is when ‘civilization’ still held Hanuman to be one of its princes, when govRmnts had not yet discovered and imposed taxes.

The seemingly miraculous arrival of a Super civilization such as ours went unexplained for a long time. Then, suddenly: SHAZAM! As if out of the blue: Paris. London. Berlin. New York. Tokyo. Moscow. Shanghai, Dubai… an endless list of deserts of concrete, one poorer, another richer. To make hide the poor and homeless, never before heard of lotteries worth hundreds of millions of dollars, euros, and rubles in weekly jackpots make the poor become millionaires today as well.

While taxes remained for a long time unexplained by even Karl Marx, at last came Charles Darwin, who wrote: “With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilised men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile….

Hitler vigorously disagreed with Darwin, while the United States of America substitutes nature at every turn so successfully that its disciples are too many to count.

Where are we heading this 2015? Is it “ad astra per aspera” as ever?

There may be hope for a downturn.
While Marx never quite said it, it is clear from his admiration for Darwin, that he intuited that Darwin had discovered the missing link that he (Marx) had failed to discover. In other words, Darwin’s vigorous and one sided analysis for all its failures demanded an explanation of how the rich had overcome so many of the poor without enforcing on them taxation?

Surely not by taxing the rich?

Though our ‘civilization’ as we know it is only about a thousand years old, ever since 2008 (only seven years ago) and the arrival of the unconventional monetary policy known as ‘quantitative easing’ (QE), we have discovered that the miracle workers all the time have been certain dwarves working at the federal printing presses, who have been quite literally flooding the world with ‘happy’ money.

We now discover that in prehistoric times this ‘happy’ money was known as taxes, which is why it was kept a secret from us. And no wonder. If we look into the matter deeper, we discover that although taxation has a long history, it played a minor role in the ancient world. It actually started with the Russian tsars as a ‘fur tribute’  or 'yasak' before it came 'big' in America, where fur became known as ‘jacket’. In the 16th cent., Russia, emulating the West, added with the yasak money Siberia to itself.  Do we not wear a jacket still and as part of our armor does it still not smell of blood?
