Ages of Time
"Dieu Et Mon Droit"
Murmurs felt below, the first warnings of that which it is yet to come. The great white snowy owl sits aloft, gazing over his dominion - pondering: how long - before its time.
As the vibrations grow louder, the denizens of the earth know a shift is beginning. The tectonic plates of history are repositioning themselves according to what has been, and what shall be.
A process born of desire - as all thought is. Its issuance into the outside world causes changes across the globe. Changes in the way man feels, thinks, and acts. The times they are a changing.
A force rarely visited upon the Isle of Man has been germinating for centuries. When the destiny of the world enters the field, it is best to sit up and take notice: to heed the warning, whatever it may be.
The Riddle of the Sphinx
A baby grows into a child, the child becomes an adult, the adult matures into old age, and the four phases of life are complete. So too does the human race progress: from the infant, to the child, to an adult, and finally to old age. As above - so below: the microcosm within the macrocosm.
The human race is at an important point in its progression: it either moves forward or falls back, it really is as simple as that. Man has entered a new age - the Age of Aquarius: the age of adulthood in which he can either blossom or regress. The choice is his and his alone.
Four broad strokes cross the canvas of man's history, the paradigm shifts that the human race has so far endured are destiny's brush - the collective behavior of the races provide the pallet of colors.
Man has traveled from the ancient world, to the industrial world, to the post-industrial world, to the age of technology - where man is trying to seek control of Mother Nature: not the wisest of choices he has ever made, but his to make nonetheless.
That is man's right, which free will offers. The consequences of his actions, however, form his destiny - as the potter's hands shape the form of clay that is the expression of his inner thoughts.
The journey through nature has involved billions of souls and billions of changes. Some were easy, while others seemed impossible. Time waits for no man, it marches on as the relentless measure of change: until no longer needed - its task complete - destiny fulfilled.
Many earth-moving events have occurred, caused by the tectonic plates of the human drama shifting about - moaning and groaning from the strain of the friction between the twins. At one moment in time the golden age prevailed, at another, the age of silver; next came the age of bronze, and last came the age of iron - the present time that is upon us.
The Industrial Revolution
There can be no doubt that the industrial revolution was an earth-shattering event that forever changed the landscape, as well as the lives of those thereon. It began in the late seventeen hundreds in Europe, its highpoint the middle to late 1800's.
A question of some substance is why did it start in Europe, predominantly in England, before other nations strode upon the stage. Why did England dominate the world from the mid 1700's to the early 1900's - until the end of the war?
The people that flooded into Europe during the Dark and Medieval Ages came up from the south and east; and down from the North and West. Once the Roman Empire fell the next millennium witnessed a great Diaspora spreading its wings across the land: the migration of man had begun.
The fields of England were chosen as the middle ground. The all-seeing owl nodded his head in approval, as he cast a glance over his shoulder - his shadow reflected upon the ground.
The Dark Ages
The greatness of Rome was no more; its fall left a large void in the world's collective consciousness. From the later 400's onward, the Dark Ages were the sign of the times.
Petrarch was the first to coin the term, referring to the time that followed ancient Greece and Rome, as the Dark Ages.
The darkness of the age had many shades: some referred to the lack of communication between different peoples, as books were rare artifacts, leaving entire nations unaware of their fellow man.
There was, however, a darker side as well, where bloodlust ruled the day. The most savage and evil tortures imaginable occurred, as if they were nothing more then a harsh lesson exacting its due toll. Even women and children suffered the curse of fate.
Then came the age of enlightenment, the rays of reason beamed bright on the child of man below. Just prior came the reformation, the time the Church's back was pinned against the wall: questions were asked in public, which before were whispered behind closed doors.
Now both mind and body joined to perform man's tasks. Man wrought forth great feats with nothing more than his bare hands guided by his wit. Huge Cathedrals, bridges, and cities now adorned the land.
Man had discovered that by using his mind he could produce more goods than by manual labor alone. The age of tools and machines had arrived: the age of industry - the industrial revolution.
The Age of Machines
At first, the tools were simple, but soon they grew into machines of greater complexity: spinning wheels and looms that processed cotton and wool, farm equipment that harvested wheat from the fields.
Finally, the invention that changed the world - the steam engine, and the huge machines it could power: the steam ship, and eventually the steam engine of the trains.
These were not just steps forward in man's productive well being - they were leaps across unknown waters that vastly improved the division of labor and the economy of man.
It was now possible to effectively transport both people and goods, over much longer distances, and into more remote areas; either on steamships along the waterways; or on trains along the iron rails.
Soon the ever-expanding need for more and more steel required the need for mass production of the metal: production begets production.
At the same time mass manufacturing of steel was taking place, other industries were beginning to blossom: the all important petroleum industry that provided fuel and lubricants the machines of the future required; the chemical industry that produced and refined the essential ingredients for both the construction of certain products, and the improvement and utility of others.
Then it came - like a bolt of lightening from out of the sky: electricity and all its marvels suddenly appeared upon the stage. Giants of industry were born: AT & T, US Steel, Standard Oil. The times they were a changing.
The Center of Finance
The birth of the industrial giants gave birth to yet another: the industry of finance. Thread Needle St., Wall Street, and the stock market were about to blossom.
It had become apparent to those in the know that the ways of money were unknown to all but a few, its tracks forever covered, hidden from sight, as are those of the wise old owl by a new fallen snow.
Many great minds have debated the reason as to why the revolution first took hold in England, well before other European nations. The answer is really quite simple: it was because Britain was where the preponderance of the elite banking families from Italy migrated to after the fall of Rome.
And as birds of a feather flock together - so too did the other great banking Houses of Europe set up shop in merry Old England. The land of the Brits became the hub of world finance, the center from which the clarion call to profits sounded loud and clear.
The Money Power
Money is the sinew of war - it is also the sinew of commerce and industry as well. The money power is the most awesome power that man possesses; and man should respect it accordingly - as opposed to his present meek acquiesance that hands the money power over to others: to the State and the elite bankers who have no right to possess such an unalienable and inviolate right of man.
Britain came out of the 19th century as the leader and super power of the world. This was in large part due to their leading role in the industrial revolution and the financing thereof. Their reach stretched across the world: to India, the Middle East, Australia, China, and Africa. No stone went unturned in the pursuit of profit. Then came the War to end all wars - World War I.
The mid 1700's witnessed the colonies of the New World revolting against the inequity and despotism of Britain's monarchy. The colonists were free men with unalienable rights - not subjects to be treated as mere chattel. Revolution was the call to arms that wrought forth liberty and freedom for all.
Then came the Great French War - the continuous years of fighting from 1792 until 1815, ending with the defeat of Napolean at the battle of Waterloo: defeated by the English under the leadership of General Wellington.
Some say it was Rothschild's gold delivered to Wellington that won the day; the same is said about Alexander's gold defeating his enemies - not Alexander. As Horace wrote: "Gold can a path through hosts of warders clear. And walls of stone more swiftly can displace than ever lightening could."
World War I pitted The Allied Powers of France, England, and Russia, and eventually the United States, against the Central Powers: Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire.
The established worldview perceived the purpose of World War I to be the war to end all wars. It did not accomplish its stated cause; instead, it laid the groundwork for World War II. It was as if a purposeful design had formed and followed a desired function.
What World War I did accomplish, and with surgical precision, was the end of the Old World Order, and the preparation of a fertile crucible: the human race - to accept the New World Order.
So what was this Old World Order? First, recall that Napolean ruled over almost all of Western Europe, just as the Romans had in their time. The French Revolution expoused a set of ideals that flew in the face of the Old World Order: the order of absolutism.
Absolutism vests all power in the monarch - the King is the ruler of the land. He has the sovereign power to rule all men as his subjects, without question as to right or wrong - all rights were held by the King - for the King's advantage.
There were no laws other than the King's Perogative. The King was sovereign - the people were subjects of the King: mere chattel to perform his bidding. Right was had by might.
No opposition to the rule of might exists, unless one possesses a greater might, one capable of overpowering the King's men - the strong arm of en-force-ment. The law is what the King says it is. There is no Constitution declaring the rights of man. There is no natural law. The King rules by Divine Right. The law is what the King decrees it to be - nothing more nor less.
Old Ways Die Hard
It is most telling that even to this day, coronations of British monarchs still take place according to the Old World Order. Monarchs are anointed with the Holy oils by the Archbishop of Canterbury, just as they were in the days of old; thereby ordaining them to the rule with God's blessing - rule by Divine Right, which is fairly absolute is it not?
The roots of this heritage and bloodline of descent can be traced back to ancient times when David ruled as King. The Davidic line is coveted by those that have the need to do so - to fill the void within. Most Royal Houses can be traced back to the same roots: Cain and Able: the left hand path, and the right hand path.
The ancients themsevles ruled by Divine Right, at least the ancients that history is aware of: Egypt, Sumer, and Bablyon, and back further to Atlantis and Lemuria, and to the time when the watchers came and partook of the forebidden fruit; the time when the gods walked the earth - those that still had to obey the three Sisters of Fate - of Destiny - of that which is, and yet to come.
The supposed purpose of World War One was to end the Old World Order of absolutism, and to establish the New World Order. Yet even after the war was over, and to this very day, England retains the sacred tradition of the coronation ceremony, including the annointing with Holy Oil to ordain the ruler to be according to Divine Right and the will of God.
The Cost of War
At first the British sold large stock positions in the US railroads to raise needed capital to pay the huge expenses of war. All too soon the funds ran out. Britain was left with no other alternative to fund their war machine, except to borrow heavily from the U.S. bankers on Wall Street - many of whom were frontmen for the elite international bankers of Europe.
The Versailles Treaty culminated the end of the war. Germany was forced to pay staggering reparation payments. The Germans did this by borrowing from the United States bankers on Wall Street. It seems that both sides of the war were funded by the same entities, especially by the House of Morgan.
In 1919, the U.S. demanded that England repay their loans. These loans had been partially funded by German reparation payments. As stated above, German reparation payments were funded by loans from J.P. Morgan to Germany. By 1930 this little game of merry-go-round came to a halt - setting the stage for the rise of Nazi Germany and World War II.
As already stated, one of the main objectives of World War One was to replace the Old World Order with a New World Order. In regards to changing the Old World Order the war was quite successful. Four empires and their respective royal dynasties were destroyed: the Ottoman empire and dynasty; the House of Habsburg and the Austrian dynasty; the Romanovs and the Russian dynasty; and the House of Hohenzollern and the German dynasty.
Once again, just as in their keeping of the Old World Order Royal Coronation Traditions of Divine Right, Britain also retained the Old World Order of the ruling House of Windsor. It appears the New World Order entails Britain keeping its Old World Order intact, while the rest of the world marches to a different drummer.
Needless to say, the war wraught untold sufferring upon the world, leaving physical, emotional, and mental scars on both the land and greater still - on the people of the land. Different people reacted in different ways. For the very strong of heart, the war was a learning experience that made one stronger. Others were completely devastated.
Nationalism was the new scapegoat. The intelligenstia propagandized that the cause of the war was one nation trying to impose its belief system on another; and that the ONLY way such evil could be prevented was by a more internationalistic world: a New World Order - thus the League of Nations was born.
Others had pretty much the opposite reaction to the atrocities of the war, they became brazen and more emboldened in the belief that might was right; and to survive in the world one must be the strongest and most aggressive and dominant alpha male: thus Nazism and fascism rose from the ashes of the war to end all wars.
Communist and socialist ideaology suddenly became popular as well, especially in the European countries that had suffered the most during the war.
Recall that the war to end all wars had just been fought and did not quite accomplish its supposed goal of ending either war or absolutism, which were the reasons give that an international order of nations was needed.
This ends part one. The quote at the top of the paper: Dieu Et Mon Droit is the British Royal Family's motto, which translates as: God and My Birth Right. Absolute or not - the reader can judge for themselves.
