The Red Dean of Canterbury and The King of Siam

The Declaration of Independence of the thirteen states of the United States of America written on 4 July 1776 served to outline why this group of men representing these states had chosen to break free from what they described as the Tyranny of the King of Great Britain over those States. It had become necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which connected them with another “and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them…” The second paragraph of this Declaration continues “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Self-evident means that which requires no proof or explanation. This document has been dissected by scores of scholars and philosophers. Are self-evident truths true? Are all men created equal, i.e. equally endowed with talents and gifts of intellect (obviously not), or simply equally endowed with Rights that are never to be taken away?
The founders of the United States of America have also been held feet to the fire because they were not woke. They were a collection of White Men who owned land. There were no women amongst the signers and had there been, surely they would have suffered horrific discrimination and unwanted sexual advances on their way to the Assembly Room at Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. Philadelphia, that city of Brotherly Love.
According to fact checkers, forty-one of the fifty-six signers were slaveholders and thirty-four of the forty-seven signers depicted in the famous “Declaration of Independence” painting were slaveholders.
I’ve even stumbled across apologetics which suggest that the important thing to consider is “We hold”, meaning that these truths are not self-evident, but this group of men held them to be so. Well, I know enough of men (and women) to be thankful that it is my Creator who endows me with Rights.
We don’t need to go once again into founding myths and masonic symbolism found in the architecture of Washington D.C. What is mythological can also be true.
This week’s Redux is the third hour of Alan Watt’s talk from 13 December 2020, “Psychopathic Professions of Demonic Possessions” and he uses the phrase, that which is self-evident several times. He clearly means that which requires no proof or explanation and one of his examples is men and women. When you alter that which is self-evident until you’re unsure of everything you’ll even turn on yourself and self-destruct. You may even stop reproducing your own kind, so complete is your confusion. More on that later.
There is so much going on in this evil world. Alan says in this talk we’re in the midst of a full-scale war. The pillars of our societies have been under attack for generations. We are in our third year of “pandemic” being used to terrorize the public and rush in key components of the sustainability agenda. All our “leaders” have repeatedly told us that we’re never going back to normal again. Places such as Canada and Australia have become literal prisons.
In how many talks did Alan warn us that at the right time the Russian Bear would once again be used? We are a global “community”. Via free trade and through the off-shoring of manufacturing to China, by turning our economies into service economies, we have been made helpless and dependent. And now we are in the first weeks of what is world war. It won’t matter which countries put boots on the ground or supply military aid, we are all already feeling the effects of this “conflict” between Ukraine and Russia. Gas prices in California, USA are about $6 per gallon. In the Greater Toronto area of Canada prices are expected to reach $1.84 per litre this weekend which is just under $7 per gallon. Was it administrative capriciousness or long-term agenda foresight that led the Biden administration to cancel the Keystone Pipeline? President Biden is not competent to read a teleprompter so someone else called that shot. Grain prices will skyrocket and the cost of your groceries will go through the roof.
This is warfare. A “pandemic” has kept us imprisoned in our homes with the belief that we are forced to comply with any mandate if we want any kind of ability to move or work. Do we need to be reminded of store employees sitting atop a helpless shopper who wasn’t wearing a mask, or the elderly Canadian woman who chose euthanasia over more lockdowns, or the many thousands of victims of ventilators and remdesivir, the decimation of small businesses or those thousands who have died from vaccine injuries who will never be acknowledged because in this like in so much else we’ve been blatantly lied to?
In this blurb, Alan mentioned The Red Bishop in England who had talked about the need for continuous adult education to conform people to the goals of communism. Hewlett Johnson was a priest of the Church of England who became the Dean of Manchester and later the Dean of Canterbury. He became known as The Red Dean of Canterbury for his devotion to communism, the Soviets and their allies. He wrote books such as, The Socialist Sixth of the World, The Secrets of Soviet Strength, Soviet Russia since the war, China's New Creative Age,
Eastern Europe in the Socialist World, Christians and Communism, The Upsurge of China, and like so many who have trumpeted communism in the West, he never acknowledged the mass persecution and imprisonment of political opponents, the well-documented starvation of millions or the built-in anti-religious aspects of Marxism, Stalinism, etc.
One thing about communism that Hewlett Johnson keenly admired was the “Soviet commitment to education.”Their educational system would ensure that all children were educated to at least the age of eighteen. Women would receive an education equal to men, and factory workers would receive continuing education. In his mind, this ensured that the promises of the communist system would be fulfilled perhaps not immediately but in a short span of time.
Alan said that he had often wondered how life-long perpetual education (indoctrination) would be achieved until he realized that was the goal of entertainment. The media, novels and movies give us the changes in thought and behavior that we are to emulate. He said that comedies are often perfect vehicles for this because we might laugh at or with the character who represents a set of behaviours outside the norm. (Perhaps outside that which is self-evident…)
I recently watched the 1956 movie musical The King and I with my brother. I had seen it before and for some reason I assumed my brother had too. It’s a long movie and since our schedules didn’t allow us to watch it in one sitting we decided to finish it the following night. I commented that we had stopped just before Anna emasculated the king and then he died. My brother said, “Stop! Don’t say anything else.”
The movie was based on the 1944 novel Anna and the King and that in turn was based on the memoirs of Anna Leonowens, who became school teacher to the children of King Mongkut of Siam in the 1860s. Siam is now known as Thailand and various forms of this story have been banned there for decades because the Thai people maintain that it is a gross misrepresentation of their king.
Anna Leonowens was a bit of an adventuress and obviously had early feminist leanings. Later in her life she moved to Canada and became an activist for many social causes and a suffragist.
The King as he is portrayed by the actor Yul Brynner is likeably masculine if a bit misogynistic and capricious. He is said to have dozens of wives and hundreds of children. Anna, in that well-meaning behavior we see in missionaries and other emissaries of empire, disapproves of all his wives and of the bowing and scraping the king seems to require.
As in Hamlet, there is a story within a story. In this case, the King’s latest concubine, Tuptim, has penned a play based on her reading of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. For Tuptim the story resonates with her because she has been ‘gifted’ to the king and this means that she is now his slave and has been torn from the arms of her true love. After the re-enactment of Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Tuptim flees the king’s palace with her lover. When she is captured, the king takes up a whip to punish her. Anna looks on in horror and her disapproval stops the king from doing what comes naturally to him, what for him is self-evident. The king has become completely unsure of himself. He lapses into what we would describe as a depression and ceases to eat or sleep with any regularity. He dies, but not before hearing his young son and the future king say in the presence of all in the royal family and Miss Anna that when he is king there will be no bowing.
When we finished watching the movie my brother commented that there wasn’t a very satisfactory explanation of why the king died. “As I said,” said I, “she emasculated him and then he died.”
Whatever we think of how other cultures live, whatever our missionary zeal or our commitment to bringing “democracy to the barbarians”, all cultures are not alike, but there are some basic things that can be said about human nature, about differences between men and women about what makes some cultures thrive and what undermines others.
In talking about how perpetual lifelong education/indoctrination is used to alter societies, Alan spoke specifically about emasculating men. He said that generally it is the men who stand up against abuse, so when an invading force or an evil elite want to conquer a people, they don’t worry about the women. They neutralize the male.
As Alan has so often pointed out, this international cabal starts no revolution prematurely. It was essential to break the bond between a man and a woman, to thoroughly destroy the family, the first and strongest tribe. That destruction is complete and here we are.
