This was just emailed to me, and I think it's well said, and doesn't require much commentary. But here's someone who gets the relationship between text, culture, and interpreting magisterium correct:

How the State Promotes Authoritarianism

Joseph P. Farrell

Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in patristics from the University of Oxford, and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science, and "strange stuff". His book The Giza DeathStar, for which the Giza Community is named, was published in the spring of 2002, and was his first venture into "alternative history and science".

    One does not have to appeal to extrinsic causes for authoritarianism in Islamist or Marxist movements or states as authoritarianism is intrinsic to such entities. Moreover, ” individualistic liberalism is in fundamental agreement with orthodox Marxism on this point, namely that there is no ‘governmental authority ‘ properly so called . For individualism, authority is vested in agreements between individuals , which as a matter of principle, can be canceled any time; for Marxism, it is the hallmark of those preliminary stages of society which will one day dissolve altogether in a Communist society.( Josef Pieper )”

    I have a lot to thank you for though, Joseph.

    Your first few books had me making connections
    I never would have thought of, but stuff
    I was looking for all along.

    I jumped right into the surrendipity of
    synchronous ‘coincidence’ and was able to finish on time.

    Still alive (oh yeah!) and looking forward to things like
    privacy, true friends, my daughter, etc.,
    as the ruling inmates go [away] I won’t be tortured any more.
    [I’ll be 65 on 08/25]

    The full ‘carrot people” can never reform;
    emptied of “totbots”
    THEY could never ‘live’ with the guilt.


    I’ll have to go back to writing, but not until next year
    AND it will be MY RealName byline !
    Reports of a very strange investigation—
    Steven King meets reality!

    The first out will be little more than editing,
    as THEY always leave extensive diaries and records.
    Now I can think that living so long as I have been allotted
    won’t be so bad !

    Happy “transition” and 2013!
    It’s gonna be great !

      Message for today from “True Tales” at

      Not my group, but I posted.

      I can’t wait for the pain to go away………
      I haven’t even been able to read much these past
      several months, and of course,
      only the doctors from hell would see me these past
      15 years.

        I didn’t know that it was a closed group,
        so I reposted to my own with a [caveat (?)] oops……….
        the old judge I’m sure of
        and Perry Mason was my favorite show
        as a young teen.

    Authoritarianism right out of
    Alice In Wonderland’s Red Queen Reign of Terror.
    We are definately in a strange land.
    It is definately NOT the country we were taught existed.
    I wonder who are those guys?
    What school of thought teaches these psychopaths?
    And strangely they are called,
    “The Best & The Brightest”.

    But are inmates really running the asylum?

      “But are inmates really running the asylum?”

      All that is about to change……….
      but then, who ‘listens’ to me?

      Too bad because I am the only one that
      actually knows what the hell is going on.

      Not a bad thing as I really need some down time!
