what does it mean to be a ‘holocaust denier’? let me answer this really funny question someone put forward on facebook the other day in the mature and level-headed, soft-spoken way that I imagine a rabbi would:
i’ll open my answer move in the unfailing socrates way. what do they / you mean by ‘holocaust’? what do you / they mean by ‘denier’?
holocaust means ‘burning a sacrificial animal alive’, according to traditional scripture, doesn’t it, so if this term is used in connection with the deportation of people into forced labour camps, whether by the hundreds of thousands or by the millions, and the subsequent execution of these victims (whether all, most or some of them) then I can’t see what ‘holocaust’ has anything to do with the topic. the term with its biblical overtone from what I understand would make more sense applied to the things to come for ‘herded’ mankind, (or for the duped and ‘scapegoted’ mankind at least), things that the bible describes as ‘consumed by eternal fire at the end of days’. they walk in there alive and ‘willingly’.
so as far as i’m concerned, the term used in public at the time of the catastrophy of hoarding off ‘unwanted citizens’ (intellectuals, pagans, astrologers, jews, gypsies, upright thinkers, system critics, etc) of hitler’s fascist brownshirted mickey-mouse regime into soviet style ‘gulags’ (although they were apparently somewhat less evil than the soviet ones) was the also biblical term ‘pogrom’. pogrom means genocide, doesn’t it?
now genocide, as the scholar knows, is the necessary ancient method of attaining power for the future to come according to thousands of years old lawbooks for power (sun tsun, …). no emotions come into play here. it’s simply a law that was followed through in history each and every time. if you want to change the rules, change the game, and bring your subjects over to your side, you have to kill everyone connected to the truth of passed-down tradition, everyone who knows what you’re really up to. everyone who could possibly get in your way. there’ve been book burnings of all available traditional scholarship and death penalty on ownership of these material thosands of years ago in china. the law goes so far as to no only kill all ‘dissidents’ but all of their family too and everyone who ever listened or sympathized to those ‘dangerous’ views. stalin was pretty harsh killing all of his former friends as soon as he came to power. mao was probably the most ardent power player of all, though, killing 100 million of his own people during peace times, only to come to power and then changed official history and killed the remaining rest of cultural heritage in order to thoroughly stay there. in this light, the hitler geezer was probably puny. the story goes round that the soviet intelligentsia was deported to gulags, then fed to the pigs and the pigs were then brought back to the ‘believing followers’ who feasted on them. who was behind the soviet revolution and then the ddr and ussr government lurking as shadows? you do your homework. it’s certainly not safe to speak about this in the world that we live now.
yet despite all of this, and regardless of fema concentration / deportation camps built all over america and secret underground cities and government compounds dug everywhere in the world – has any regime in history ever resorted to anything as evil as live organ harvesting? romans were brutally slaughtering both christians and jews, and obviously all other ‘dissidents’ or simply sympathizers and families of the last murdered rulers – and the follow-up empire of roman-catholics certainly let their imaginations run wild in their witch hunts and torture chambers, but all their utterly depraved imaginations never took such dark turns as to cut out organs of healthy falun gong practitioners while they’re still alive and plant them into the pious party member next door whose crooked belief was certainly the main reasons to make his body sick in the first place …
thought you have seen the face of the ‘devil’?
now as to ‘denial’. some bank guy once told me, “all the people who max out their credit cards simply live in denial”. so for me, the word denial actually can be equalled to ignorance. and ignorance, what is ignorance? maybe the opposite / dialectic meaning of the word sheds light. the more or less opposite meaning of the word, I think, is ‘truth seeker’, or in other words the pursuer of knowledge that would allow them to transcend their being to a better and more enobled plane within the universe.
which brings us to the topic of what dictatorships really and truly want. they want to call the shots over mortal man, rather than they themselves deciding about what’s good and bad for their moral, spiritual and cohabital improval of their experienced ‘reality’. that’s why the first thing to make sure is to insert themselves into our belief systems and repackage / re-brand our understanding of ‘nature’. everyone who holds true ancient knowledge about history, nature and the cosmos must be eliminated first when attaining power (and if they’re really dead serious about it – everything associated with these ‘security threats’), in order to build up a construct of lies to reshape their envisaged warped future. and this is the main reason, from what I can see, why the jews have repeatedly been persecuted by ‘political bastards’ (as were likewise all other cultivators who didn’t bend over for their new preposterous wannabe masters, like wiccas, shamans, elders, philosophers, etc). that some of them were engaged in weird black magical practices and therefore expelled from certain countries was just another factor (a factor of ‘protection’ within a country that always still remained in force amidst a balance of goodness and evil) but the main factor, in my view, was that the ‘officially’ rolled-out belief structure of most governments was (from behind and underneath, so to speak) undermined by their unwavering faith in tradition and scripture. so-labelled ‘witches’ in the so-labelled ‘dark ages’ (and all the elders and priesthoods of any conquered land) were equally wise men and women who simply didn’t ‘buy the shit’ (official version of ‘reality’). maybe some of them did kiss the devil’s arse. but i’m positive the majority of them didn’t. all people with true knowledge of nature and any of the archivers of true tradition were thus inevitably at the forefront of segregation, scapegoating and persecution – and to be put to death via genocidal raids and ventures.
so to make it clear here and henceforth. I sympathize with the jews and deeply respect them for the main reason that they only regard the lord of heaven as their true master. no other worldly master will ever be able to tell them what they should ultimately be thinking and doing with their lives …
if all men and women would be that way, politics would disappear like a ridiculous miracle but what instead would come to the fore, is the dark reality of the ‘struggle for relevance’ between each and every person, something that the gods who arranged all of our history up to this very point certainly can only laugh about and that opens up an entirely new paradigm of reality that equally holds within the potential danger of complete destruction.
yet this time, at this turn of historically arranged reality-unfoldment, the destruction is entirely self-inflicted. the grand universal law of free will and fundamental freedom of belief has never been tampered with by any however malevolent and powerful divine entity. if on a scientific multidinensional level, everyone creates their very own reality (or little universe), then where do you go, if what you create for yourself is not in tune with the law that is actually governing the unfathomable intricacies of a universe around (above and below) you – not to mention the possibility of a ‘new unverse’ / new universal aeon? doesn’t free will only mean that while enmeshed and ensnared by worldy delusion and chaos, only what your heart, ultimately and fundamentally, truly desires really matters in the end? really has a ‘core existential’ impact?
so then, if we are truly free to choose what we truly want within a divine cosmic framework, what does it mean to be doing ‘the right thing’?
well, i’d humbly suggest – all you experts and scholars and people of renown who’ve lost their innocence and humility through climbing the worldy ladder: maybe you should acknowledge, rather sooner than later, that you’ve been outwitted by forces, also human forces, that are simply smarter than you. the only thing is that they remained shrouded in darkness, not craving the limelight of worldy renown and attention, and thus will not have revealed this to you.
the checkerboard of the chess game is the symbolic ground that the masons walk on. mastering the middle path between blackness and whiteness is a challenge that the daoists conceptualise with their famous ‘yin-yang’ symbol / logos.
one chess expert once explained to me that white, having the advantage of the first move, is always the winner – unless it makes some sort of ‘mistake’ (position in relation to material). that’s why the real pros need to play tournaments, constantly changing their sides to determine who’s the stronger.
it would be a funny thing, wouldn’t it, if one were to play a game and let black do their opening move first.
I can’t help but wonder what the world would be like in such case :)
