Another home run by the Babe Ruth of revisionist historians. Mr. Hoffman again takes Mr. Buchanan, who should know better, to the woodshed.
Thank you for your assessment of the August 19 Hoffman Wire column.
Usury after the Middle Ages — a Judaic invention?
For example, the Cryptocracy has led the Right wing into imagining that usury after the Middle Ages was a Judaic invention, a wholly owned subsidiary of “Jewish bankers.” By this ruse, the gentile agents of the conspiracy are given a pass, which is one reason why conservative Catholics have scant awareness that usury was revived in the West by Catholic, and not Judaic, robbers who called themselves bankers. This was two hundred-fifty years before the Rothschilds climbed out of the ghetto. Their Renaissance precursors were overwhelmingly gentile, not Judaic, yet the Cryptocracy and its useful idiots have misdirected attention away from gentile shylocks, rendering them invisible, and therefore twice as deadly as Judaic speculators.
Pivotal Importance of Classic Literature to our Cause
Charles Dickens in Oliver Twist features his famously sinister Judaic character, Fagin, and we can all hiss at him, but that was not Dickens' principle intent. Fagin was evil, Dickens acknowledged, having patterned him after a real-life receiver of stolen goods, Ikey Solomon. But Dickens taught a deeper lesson of vigilance concerning the most insidious treachery which does us the most harm, the enemy within. Fagin was the enemy without. Far worse than Fagin was Oliver’s own wicked half-brother Monks, the enemy within. How many have studied Dickens?
The American writer Frank Norris, in his novel McTeague, features an avaricious Judaic, as did Dickens. But Norris shows that this outsider cannot do the damage that an insider does: McTeague’s own wife surpasses the Judaic in greed. She is the cause of McTeague’s downfall, and at one point Norris depicts her sleeping in a bed full of gold.
Our movement, such as it is, from Pat Buchanan to the lowliest Internet blogger, is more often than not lost in the coils of delusion. It will take a massive project of education and ennoblement to regain what has been lost.
In the first book of the Aeneid, the Roman poet Virgil remarks, “What a massive task it was to form the Roman people.” At one time, before we lost our collective mind to a Revelation-of-the-Method process described in Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare, the American people were a peace-loving nation suspicious and vigilant toward the machinations of the robber-barons and pretty much anyone who did not earn their living from honest labor. Buchanan, at the start of his remarkable career, was certainly of this American breed. But the Money Power, being the mightiest engine of decay the world has ever seen, is hollowing us out, fulfilling T.S. Eliot’s observation in The Wasteland, that we would become, unless we changed our ways, “the hollow men.”
It doesn’t have to be. We need not fulfill the script written for us by the Cryptocracy. We can write our own script in conformity with God’s Law and Will. But shall we? Or are we too mesmerized by Virtual Reality to do anything but succumb to the sense of inevitability with which the Cryptocracy invests its futuristic script? If so, then we love death, just as God warned: “All those who hate me love death” (Proverbs 8:36).
