What was Martin Luther more famous for than anything else? Well, let’s see. It was outside-the-box thinking. Being a heretic. Standing up to the powerful. Having a conscience. Caring about the German people. Being a campaign consultant to the German princes.
Back then most literate people were ruled by an educated Catholic clergy with all their little tools of Scholastic theology that had been developed in the Middle Ages.
They spoke Latin and used their little arsenal of sacred theological concepts (which they took for granted) to interpret reality and to understand the world. This kept the brainiacs – the eunuchs of their day, the predecessors of the Washington establishment – bottled up in their own private fantasy world – flying at high altitudes above the common people.
The world that the people in Germany were feeling at the time (that Godzilla of history known as Reality) was quite different: their money flew to Rome to build great palaces for the Papacy; Rome sent the most infamous tax collector in European history, Johann Tetzel (the Morris Dees of the Early Modern Era), to sell indulgences in its provinces.
Dees as Tetzel:
“As soon as a coin in the coffer rings / the soul from purgatory springs.”
Luther translated the Bible into German. He spoke the tongue of his people. He cleaned up their language, discarded some worthless concepts, focused their resentments like a laser, and used the printing press (new technology) to bring it to the masses – and as fate would have it, all hell broke loose on the establishment!
In much the same way, the liberal establishment in Washington, Los Angeles, and New York City is bottled up its own fantasy world, and it will soon succumb to all the consequences of a wreckless fantasy ideology in a terminal moment of crisis. It is a prisoner of its own disastrous concepts.
Like Rome, Washington has lost touch with its own people, White Americans, the English language has been rotted by cultural termites to narrow the range of permissible thought (think of Orwell’s 1984), we have been put to sleep by drugs and movies for we can be exploited, and we have been ruled (for some reason) by politically corrected by Marxist schoolmarms in every university, whose “ideas” have never even worked when they were tried out in reality.
In the sixteenth century, Luther nailed that famous document of his to the church door, and it “went viral” in Germany and other European countries; it was, so to speak, an early modern discursive bomb that took out the establishment, at exactly the right moment it was ready for it.
Watch the movie:
Study this movie like a tactician. Use your imagination to find the parallels which are applicable to our own society … or just let it become a fantasy ideology, the Lord knows the West needs one in the Age of Lady Gaga, become a convert to the cause of rebuilding our civilization, instead of being someone who tears it down.
It will inspire you to do great things. A great man in this movie takes a courageous stand for truth. I’m telling you, it is good; a great powerful metaphor of what needs to be done to the liberal establishment in our own times.
If Luther were alive today, what would he be doing? He would be systematically cleaning the English language, taking advantage of new technology, “mainstreaming” technical language into Hobbit-American standard, practicing “non-violent witness” of the establishment like O’Keefe, and he would destroy an emperor who has no clothes.
The Luther strategy could be implemented today: talk radio, cable television, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, WordPress … I’m telling you, the viral potential is there, to knock Obama and his liberal eunuchs off their pedestal in Washington, just by witnessing what they are doing.
They cry, “we don’t like the tone of this discourse.” They cry, “the discourse has been polarized by extremists.” They cry, “it is racist to take your own side.”
Again, Rome said the same thing in the Reformation. Pope Leo X had to face a similar legitimacy crisis. Those damn trivial indulgences (like the “debt ceiling” debate) was the bridge too far that ignited what was really nothing more than a massive epochal backlash against an establishment that had sanctified itself with theology and an inquisition.
Rome will never make that mistake again, but it will smile from abroad while Washington foolishly does so. I will sticky this post (note the irony) for a week or so. I dare say that completes our work.
His Holiness, Morris Dees, can go home now to look for a new line of employment in Shorter, AL.
Note: The time has finally come to practice non-violence and faithful descriptions of reality on the New York Times, Washington Post, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Barack Hussein Obama and Mark Potok.
The Tea Party has done nothing more than practice non-violence on the liberal establishment. Rush Limbaugh and FOX News practice non-violence on the New York Times. That is all we are doing here.
In Chicago, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and countless other cities, it is African-Americans who practice violence on White people. Let’s practice non-violence on these people who feel they are entitled to our tax dollars.
When the eunuchs cry unleash their great cry, you are a “violent extremist who is poisoning the discourse,” just tell them you are practicing non-violence on the establishment by telling the truth for a change.
You are engaged in “hand-to-hand combat” with Rahm Emanuel over the flash mobs in Chicago.
