The Age of the Man-Gods

What a sorry state we live in, or rather that of the rotting and dieing West. A people without morality, an amoral humanity made of tens of millions of individual man-gods, each nurtured from birth on the value of his own self worth above that of all of humanity.

It started a long time before, the roots planted in the Renaissance, nurtured in the Reformation and given full birth in the explosion of Nihilism that prevailed the world and especially the West in post Great War countries.

Western tradition, long ago, planted the roots of its own destruction, when it started to view itself as the center of the universe. Sure, people learned that the Sun did not rotate around the earth, but the earth around the Sun, however, at the same time they learned that the world, that reality, also rotated around something and that something was no and could not be God, it was them, each and everyone of them.

The Nihilism lead to the Marxisms: Stalinist Communism on one hand, Leninist-Trotskyte War Fascism on the other and 3rd War Socialism in the Anglospheres, Marx with a kinder gentler face and velvet lined club behind his back.

The veterans of the 1940s did not believe in large families, they believed in "quality" families. What this really meant was one or two children that could be spoiled rotten...give the "proper" amount of attention, that is, enough to make them think that they were the centers of the universe.

These spoiled and listless brats were the hope of that generation, not God. God, you see, was already on the way out, replaced with militant atheism or some pseudo Eastern mombo jumbo in half understood fashion or fashionably replaced by a neo-paganism that thought to take only the kinder parts of the pagan world and ignore the blood and guts. Just like the modern Druids running around in circles and chanting but avoiding, at least in public, the human sacrifices demanded by their blood thirsty gods. What no humans sacrificed inside the Burning Man every year? Where's the tradition? Where's the authenticity?

And so here we are, a West moraless, trying through bombs to instill its "correct" form of life upon all of humanity, while itself dieing from the now not so slow rot of its putrid moral guts. Everywhere in the West, a Christless, traditionaless, amoral elite has taken over, raped the dumbed down sheep that pass for citizens, and instilled a police state under which they control the very life and death of their public.

But these were the supposed enlightened republics and democracies for which the public over threw their age old, and God chosen Kings, bound by faith, the Church and tradition to take care of the people. As the populace abandoned God, so has God abandoned the populace, driven insane by the very inadequacies that they feel as man-gods at their own lacking statures.

After all, they were told that they were so ever very special, the centers of Creation itself, the purpose of the world's creation, each and everyone. Yet they are passed by life, aging, sagging and dieing, unable, through their vaunted science to live forever and have everything, finding that the material junk they have collected does not replace the relationships with God, family and friends that they have lost or worse never known.

They cling ever stronger to their own self worth, as they slide into the long night, feeling ever stronger their own self-loathing. These are the people who lead the West and populate the majority of its citizens. These are the fools who will quite willingly drag their fellow man into the Hell that they so well prepared for themselves.

I would say repent, but what has a man-god to repent for?

Человек-Бог. Atomized society of the atom-gods. Each man and woman is a star, according to madman Aleister Crowley, but still they would be nothing compared to the Sun. There are such gaps between these stars, each little one with his own iron will, while the Sun lights up the whole sky in consonance. Alas, one can only say that these stars exist when he is in darkness, away from the Sun!

The French Revolution told us the lies that we have freedom, that power comes from the people. The result we can see today. People have the freedom only to be consumers, sex and drug reliant animals, and they think they have freedom, that they are "questioning" God's law and affirming their own power. Try not to pay absurd taxes. Try to condemn homosexuality citing the Bible. Try to educate your kid outside the school system. You'll be crushed. The true man-gods are our rulers, because they can crush us like we were ants, weaponless and exposed as we became.

Note: again, it's not dieing, it's dying. And I don't think the word "moraless" exists. Use imoral instead.

The West has made the same mistake as made by Nietzsche, to declare that God doesn't exist (is dead) and then suffer the inflation of thinking we are God. What does a God do almost immediately upon waking up? He creates. The God inflation powers his intellect to create a new or reformed man, as in the case of the Soviet, the EU, and now in the US the Marxist and stealth Muslim Obama led Socialism. The God man also manifests in a reversion (regression) to a nature paganism. To those that worship the shining garments of Gaia, beware, she casts a very long shadow that will eat its children.

Excellent, on the mark, re the man-gods. Moralless and soulless are precise descriptions of what we are living through. Unless God again becomes the center of focus, things are only going to worsen.

Why I still read this blog :) Every now and then amidst the rants - is a laser focused observation. And while I don't agree with your universal cure (religion)'s clear you're on to something with this "narcissism thread".

Look at almost any culture (*not* just the west) and you will find legions of "mama's little darlings" who have great appetite - and near zero empathy. In this household (culturally limited to N America), we call em "Reagan babies". Every bit as predictable and indoctrinated as Hitler youth or Cultural revolution zealots. Always *certain*. No thoughtful introspection - ever.

How do we get out of this? I dunno. It almost seems a curse from too much prosperity. Afluenza?

Behavioral example - after little darlings grow up:

Parents can only pray their offspring doesn't wind up on Youtube like this.....

What do you make of Tony Blair, who has the audacity to claim he is a Christian, and was acting for Christ when he bombed countless thousands into oblivion? He's even undertaking some obviously nefarious "faith-based" political initiative here in the USA. Creepy. The man is creepy. I think a direct quote from him is that "Jesus was a modernizer." What does that even mean???

On a personal note, if one is blessed with only one child, do you think a sufficiently God-fearing upbringing can avoid the spoiled-ness you mentioned?

Stanislav said...


Blair is the ultimate whore, the demi-god of whore politicians, the ones that the 95% of politicians who are unscrupulous light candles to.

As for a single child, yes, I am like that. Of course I have worked since I was 13 as my father did.

The West is grinding aimlessly in a dead-end of history, true. But the answer doesn't lie in resurrecting old religions. That path leads to stagnation.

With some energy and commitment we can take take then next step foreward. A new Golden Age must be the goal, not a security of the past.

Come to me Stan, let me show you the way forward...

God's Grace and Mercies are new every morning. As should be our repentance.

Yet another modern warfare video game were Russians are the villains another game from Tom Clancy that ultra-nationalists (again) have taken control of Russia. 3 games in less than 6 months Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and now this game.

Will you be doing a piece of how Russians are portrayed in the mass media? Not only the games and the new media off course but also the movies that are coming out about The Georgian war, the Russo-Finnish war prior to WW2 and a movie with Mel Gibson set during the Cold War as a CIA agent trying to stop Soviet terror plots in the US.

And what about the article about western support of Islamic terrorism in Russia Stas?

There is direct evidence that the “moderate” leadership of Aslan Maskhadov planning the Nord Ost attack in Moscow on video and connections to Khattab and Azzam publications propaganda and terror financer web producer here in Britain Babar Ahkmed who tried to set up an Islamic terrorist training camp in the US and although not conclusive good evidence of US, French and British support and planning of the Beslan massacre.

I am going to e-mail you the article and evidence in reference.
