Upon Whom the Ends
of the Ages Have Come…
A fantasy for an Apocalypse

A long time ago the author climbed a tree in New Hampshire (US) and thought the event worth recording in a short column of a once Boston weekly known as ‘The Boston Ledger’. [No link to such a name can found at Google, whereby the paper is now gone „Poof!”] I have not yet got into a sandbox or at least have not recorded it. But there are plenty of issues that have been let slip, that should not have been. Herewith, one such...
The Signs of our Times
I ended my previous blog with the following: [We are now] “…following such ‘saviors’ as Huitzilopochtli, Lenin, and Hitler, the next one is named Trump.” I closed the essay/blog with some trepidation, because I am, both, a supporter and critic of presidential candidate Trump.
For the sake of shock effect, I should add that at various times in my reasonably long life I have been a supporter and denier of a great number of political leaders. Among the first of the latter are Dr. Doolittle (he who spoke with animals in their own language), he is followed by Alexander the Great (he who cut the Gordian Knot) of Macedonia, then comes Caesar (who should have resettled to Aleksandria, Egypt), and Napoleon (who invaded Russia because he apparently remembered that Europe had begun in the East not West, and wanted to stop the Russians from arguing that the sun rose in the East). Such were the heroes of my childhood years.
Beginning with my teens, I had occasion to weigh the case of various contemporary leaders, among which were Lenin/Stalin and Hitler. Before I was ten, I did not have the information at hand to objectively weigh the moral quality of said men. For a couple of years, I supported Hitler, because he had ‘freed’ Latvia from the Soviet occupiers. To exercise my mind, I also tried supporting Stalin. In 1945, when as a war refugee, I happened to be in Weimar, Germany, across the valley from Buchenwald (the concentration camp), I had cause to regret my early political loyalties. A change of mind was hastened as a result of being beat up by a pack of local Hitler Jugend, and being witness to the burning of the bomb struck Weimar theatre. To this day, I am pained by a man from a street cleanup detail (made up of Buchenwald inmates) falling on his knees in front of me and begging for a piece of bread (which due to the shock of it I refused him), which he had noticed in the bread basked I was carrying.
My disappointment became almost intolerable when the political and intellectual leaders of Latvijans living abroad could not make a serious critique—either collectively or individually—of fascism or communism, even as the Latvian Commons, slammed hard by the “New World Order” of American ‘democracy’ was fragmenting the community of refugees into individuals who clearly had little chance of reconstituting our destroyed nation—unless it was to come about with the aid of the Central Intelligence Agency.
As many of my essays (above) argue, the reconstituted Post Soviet Latvia, where the U.S. Embassy—just in case there arises the necessity—has strategically located itself but a few kilometers from the Airport; and the Post-Soviet Latvian government has been misgoverning the nation into oblivion for the past twenty-five years by following the misguided economic policies of Brussels and NATO is ample evidence that the country is not governed by its own.
By arguing that Latvija cannot exist unless it is a member of the European Union, because only the latter can make financial loans that can enslave the Latvian Commons to the European Central Bank (ECB) for centuries, the Post-Soviet Latvian government has not only made Latvija the poorest country in the EU, but lost its Commons the sovereign choice of going its own way either economically or politically.
Why do I believe that the American Presidential candidate Donald Trump, the apparent choice—at this time—of a majority of Americans, may join the Club of Huitzilopochtli’s oligarchs?
An indirect answer can be found the crash of a FlyDubai passenger airplane in which 62 passengers and crew were sacrificed by management in the interest of profits and ‘economy’. The irresponsibility of the ‘private’ leadership of FlyDubai stands as an example of the leadership not only in the U.S., but of our planet as a whole, whether it is the leadership of the U.S., China, Russia, Germany, or Latvija.
Interestingly, ‘private’ leadership has long advocated and lobbied (in the interest of humanitarianism) for the elimination of the death penalty, which could well be deserved deserts for the Dubai airline management, those involved in the case of the recent 100 million dollar heist from the New York Federal bank, and a number of Latvijan government officials who sold out the Latvian Commons by refusing and actively working against* organizing a referendum on whether to to abandon the Latvijan lats in favor of the euro or eirik (as the Latvian people call it).
*The Latvijan government argued that by voting to join the EU at an earlier time, the Latvian People had automatically opted for the euro. In fact, the government was taking advantage of the Latvijan people’s naiveté about the implications of EU membership and did all it could to fuel anger against a no longer existent Soviet Union and stoke fear of a recovering Russia.
A crucial point in my argument, as per EC526, is that there are great differences between realities as perceived by people who live in a Natural world and those who live in the virtual world of the city.
To put it simply: those who live in the Natural world, are forced by Nature to conform to its dictates and must wait for natural evolution to bring about such changes as Nature permits. On the other hand, life in the city is increasingly less subject to Nature as human beings move from hand milled flour, to flour processed by the mill stone turned by the waterwheel, to flour produced by electricity driven mills. The much lamented overpopulation of the world with human beings is directly tied to the profit motive of the owners of respective methods of flour production.
If ‘truth’ were not so ‘convincingly’ dictated by the city, one would readily venture to contradict our city dominated culture, by getting sufficient votes for a referendum calling for an investigation of Monsanto officials, and—should the vote be favorable—subject same to a criminal trial and possibly the death penalty for denying Nature.
So, what about Donald Trump being a cousin of Huitzilopochtli, Lenin, and Hitler?
All of these leaders were born (see EC 527) of a feather falling into the lap of the Aztec Mother Goddess, Coatlicue, from (possibly) the wings of a human soul as it is being killed by our Artificial Intelligence dominated ‘realistic’ culture denying it being. To put it another way, all the charismatic leaders today are of a virgin birth, which may come as a laugh if not a surprise to most of Trump’s supporters.
I call Trump as being of ‘virgin birth’, because he comes from circumstances that are unnatural rather than natural. Those who know a little of history know that Lenin was born of country people being turned into underpaid factory workers, Hitler was born of merciless reparations exacted of the Germans by the Allies who won WW1 (I do not believe that when Hitler started his political career he was either crazy or mad), and Trump is arising of the American People losing their jobs to fill the coffers of a handful of American billionaires and a long line of greedy capitalists.
But why should Mr. Trump turn into Huitzilopochtli’s or Hitler’s cousin? Mind you, I am not saying that he will.
But because the Club of Billionaires will try to deprive him of the majority support that he now has, there exists the possibility that Trump may fight back: by i) either doing his opponents one better, and organizing his most militant supporters into a chain swinging paramilitary gang (as Hitler did) and exact from his enemies such sacrifice as they wish to exact of him; or by ii) letting himself become a self-sacrifice in a manner of Gandhi, thereby gaining for his ‘soul’ a charisma that will hold the private extortionists in check by encouraging the rise of a chain of like martyrs.
No doubt, the latter manner takes an enormous amount of faith in God’s construct of human nature.
