Canute's Law

Are people really still complaining about automation lol? Peter Hitchens has done so recently and someone on RT was doing it today and in both cases the usual suspect Capitalism was in the dock - the whipping boy for the sins of Statism.Today it was argued that automation in transportation will put millions of men out of work as so many do delivery jobs and the automatically driven vehicles will spell their doom including taxis etc.

What did such men do before the birth of the automobile? It created all those jobs just as the next innovation will create jobs. The alternative for the Canutists would be man living in caves because every innovation threatens somone's job so lets just have the divine right of stagnation instead.

And what is the primary cause of automation anyway? Labour laws, unions unreasonable demands, the minimum wage,the Living Wage, regulation,taxation,restrictive practices ad nauseam Look across the channel to see how that is working out.

Innovation or Luddism, its that simple.

Speechcrime

A man has been arrested for wearing the wrong t shirt which mocks Hillsborough victims. It was deemed his freedom of speech was threatening the feelings of others and upsetting them. This kindergarten retreat from the market place of ideas has spilled out of the universities and is playing out in the wider culture threatening to close down free speech altogether.

Anyone who cares about liberty and its bedrock freedom of speech and the concomittant right to offend should be very worried by these Orwellian developments. In a country where telling the truth or expressing unpopular non conventional views is deemed threatening and abusive and subject to prosecution and possible inprisonment via the  insidious introduction of a sinister new concept   called thoughtcrime and speechcrime the only victor is tyranny. First they came for the Hillsborough deniers....

What would a society without freedom of speech look like? We are about to find out if current trends are anything to go by. Of course we can look at a country that has totally eliminated free speech and it is North Korea but we have no grounds for complacency. You may not be arrested for criticising the dear leader David Cameron but you could well end up in the dock for lampooning one of our many sacred cows, for instance as alluded to, the alleged sanctity of Liverpool football fans.

Freedom of speech is what separates us from the animal kingdom where differences can only be settled by force and violence. Humans can resolve differences by debate and discussion. Remove that and the only recourse is to violence. Indeed freedom of speech is sacrosant or should be as it is a social safety valve that protects us from force and violence, where views can be challenged and combated by contrary ones in a free exchange of ideas.Once that is removed  only a rapid descent into barbarism is possible.

Who Loves EU?

We are told that the older generation are more pro Brexit than the young and that the working class are more likely to be anti EU than those who have been to university and we are suppose to infer from this that the bright and intelligent can see how good the EU is whilst the dull and uneducated are against the EU. But there could be another explanation. It is a little known fact that many British universities receive funding from Brussels and it is responsible for so called European Studies which is little more than thinly veiled EU propaganda disguised as objective academic study.

So insidious has the EU become that it is getting harder to find any institution that has not in some way been co opted and captured economically and politically  by Brussels. So the next time you hear a spokesman from an institution warning us of the perils of leaving the EU behemoth question its independent status and follow the money.

Age of Unreason

As a footnote to my last post it is worth pointing out that when reason is rejected people cast around for explanations  for current events and strange people emerge to satisfy the void left by reason. Conspiracy theories flourish,the likes of David Icke fill football stadiums with credulous followers ready to swallow whole his latest bizarre constructed castles in the air populated by shape shifting reptiles and denizens of Bilderberg.

There is no theory too strange or removed from reality that the people will not embrace so desperate are they for guidance and solutions and balms for their mental perplexity. Cynical manipulators emerge exploiting the credulous herd who have been abandoned and betrayed by the intellectuals and left to the tender mercy of the hobgoblins of little minds be they Icke or Russel Brand.

Religion of course has set people up for this credulous state, predisposed are they to accept tall stories from the beyond.

The Emotional States of America

What accounts for the emergence of populist political parties across the political spectrum - although to be accurate both Trump and Sanders and indeed Corbyn over here are collectivist statists of one stripe or another? It is the almost complete abandonment of reason and its replacement with emotionalism that is the cause. Pure unfocused rage seems to govern the populace and it attributable to the collapse of the intellectuals into unreason indeed into a total rejection of reason as man's tool of knowledge and its replacement with feelings and emotions.

Reality we have been told by intellectuals for generations is unknowable,objectivity impossible to achieve and we are left with intellectual constructs and arbitrary random theories entirely removed from concrete reality.

 Universities have gone from being places of intellectual enquiry to nurseries designed to protect the delicate  sensitive souls of students from being exposed to contrary views that challenge their preconceptions and possibly upset them. So no- platform policies have been intrduced to prevent controversial speakers from entering the universities and triggering emotional responses in the students.

It is in this prevailing atmosphere of intolerance to challenging different ideas,mistrust of reason, rejection of a knowable objective reality that the emerging populists are cashing in on, rising up and threatening to take leadership over the country in the form of Trump and Sanders whose electorate appears to be interchangeable. Notice how Trump talks in soundbites, vague generalities,rambles incoherently from one topic to another,contradicts himself in mid sentence,plays on the emotions of the crowd as all demagogues do, constantly demonises the other, stirs up primal irrational zenophobic fears and encourages protectionist anti American policies andpromises to build a Berlin Wall on Mexican borders.

Americans have gone over to the dark side where emotions rule and they are desperately seeking a furher who will look after them like the regressed infantilised cry baby emoters  they have sadly become.

End of the Estasblishment?

One thing the so called referendum debates on UK EU membership have demonstrated is how in thrall we have become to corrupt establishment elites and captured compromised institutions whether they be the EU itself, the OECD, the Bank of England, the Institute for Fiscal Studies, the CBI all of whom seem to be in some way subsidised by the EU. How marvellous it would be if the British people were to stick a collective two fingers up to the lot of them and voted to leave. In one fell swoop all those institutions would be reduced in stature,their influence diminished considerably leaving them permanently discredited as they deserve to be.

These self same rotten to the core institutions failed to predict the biggest recession in a generation and indeed contributed towards it by their misguided policies and recommended Britain join the Euro another doomed venture, supported British membership of the ERM mechanism and have given consistently wrong predictions over the years.

A Brexit vote would devastate the establishment elites and change not just British politics irrevocably but the whole Soviet style EU construct and could even a trigger its complete collapse. Bright confident morning again!

Master of the Non Objective

Like everything else that issues from the lips of the arch charlatan Roy Masters his claim that he teaches an eecercise in objectivity is patently bogus. There is nothing remotely objective about his teachings which are pure unadulterated mysticism delivered in turgid doggerel. As I have had cause to mention in previous posts on this topic just being aware of your thoughts without analysing them or differntiating between them in any way is the very antithesis of objectivity and it is the level of cognition of a mental retard.This is exactly the state of mind he seeks to engender in his hapless ignorant followers as it suits his purposes which is of course to gain total ascendancy over their minds

Thinking,sorting one's thoughts,analysing learning the art of concept formation and arranging thoughts in a hierachy is what separates humans from animals and it is a unique capacity that has resulted in all the wonders of technologial civilisation.. Just observing one's thoughts is to reduce oneself to abject cretinism and it is no accident that this condition is typical of Roy Master's followers. I had the misfortune to spend a week at Roy Master's seminar in France in the late eighties and a learned Dutch memeber of the audience told me that he had been to countless religious philosophical seminars and he had never experienced such levels of cretinism and ignorance and stupidity amongst any audience as he did at the Roy Master seminar.

The Rage against Atheism

Peter Hitchens makes quite a habit of abusing atheists mainly one suspects because he received such a humiliating drubbing from his brother Christopher in a debate about God years ago. In an extraordinary concession he openly acknowledges that he cannot prove God's existence but in a debate if one side admits that it cannot prove its case does not that automatically signal the end of the debate and  defeat for  the one so conceding? Yet on he goes resorting as he only can to ad hominem attacks against atheists whilst ignoring their arguments which he cannot refute by his own admission.

Religious believers are very thin skinned and cannot brook the slightest criticism. In the case of muslims they resort to violence and be headings. In Hitchen's case he has a fit of the vapors and is prissily indignant that anyone should dare to take on those of faith. You would think the last centuries of religious persecution,torture,imprisonment persecution wars had never happened. Now the religious are the victims - of satire,ridicule,contempt! And they just cannot handle it and are whining like infants.

Then there are the smears. According to Hitchens atheists are only so because it gives them licence to be hedonists,extolling sex drugs and rock n roll.This is much more like a confession on Hitchen's part. Without belief in a supernatural entity from another dimension he would be a hedonist without self control or moral compass.

He claims that an afterlife secures justice for people but man unaided by superstition and governed by reason can perfectly secure justice here on earth with objective law and the claim is absurd on its face.

What are we really dealing with here? Pure emotionalism. As someone observed most religious belief is neurotically determined. Religious people only have their emotions to govern them. Reason has been abandoned, what else is left?.Let us leave the last words  to Hitchens himself. 'You cannot prove God's existence.It requires faith and that is a choice.'

Master of Misogyny

Arch woman hater and religious nut job Roy Masters once said a very revealing thing on his radio programme that may very well explain his life-long pathological misogyny to which  anyone who has had the misfortune of listening to his horrendous radio programme would testify. He said that when he was a youth and being fairly handsome he could not understand why when he went into a restaurant or bar he was invisible to women who gravitated to the less wholesome type of man. Right  here we see  the roots of his venomous hatred of women,the sleight and abject humiliation he felt all those years ago of being ignored by the fair sex.

This festering hatred was nurtured for many a year before he eventually secured a radio programme where he could finally vent his bile and spleen against womankind.He would fashion an organization around his malicious misogyny and use religious texts to back up his perverted hate filled philosophy. Of course in this he was well served for where else but in the Bible itself is such molten contempt of women memorialised in the vile story of Adam and Eve?

(As a footnote no one ever told the beligerent chippy youth Masters that he was as ugly as sin and had the kind of face that only a mother could love. Of course as the late great Frank Cain once observed the deluded do not know they are deluded because they are deluded.)

Sympathy for the Devil

The Devil got a bad press. He was the good guy. He never got to tell his side of the story. In the greatest novel ever written the Bible he is presented as the seducer and destroyer when he was in reality the saviour of mankind.

 God ordered Abraham to kill his own son. How satanic is that? The Devil on the other hand urged man to use his mind,reject the totalitarian deal of eternal security that God offered man in exchange for his soul in the form of blind  obedience and mindless obesiance and passivity, living in Edenic sheltered accommodation for eternity - a veritable living hell of North Korean proportions.

Fortunately Adam listened to the Devil's wise counsel when he urged him to use his mind,to think, reason, gain knowledge achieve his own greatness and happiness.Man learned and studied,created a world of magical invention and ingenuity,he wrote books,accumulated knowledge and lived happily ever after.

Well, not quite... Although a great work of fiction the tragedy is that man fell for the hoax of the Bible and sought to follow God's counsel instead of the Devil's.We are living with the consequence of that to this day.

Man is forever looking for the next Fuhrer,The Donald, the Bernie, the Pope,the King or Queen,the EU, the UN, Nato ,some authoritarian guide to take the place vacated by his mind and reason. The dire consequences are all around us as we tip toe once more towards totalitarianism.

In Praise of Uncertainty

The harshest criticism the Remainers can level against the Brexiters is that their way will lead to uncertainty and that they cannot draw a picture of what Brexit will look like.Uncertainty is in the nature of freedom. Freedom leads to uncertainty because no one can predict what people will do with it. It rests on millions of individual choices that are entirely unpredictable.

If you want certainty go to North Korea - we know without a doubt that with that system in place people will continue to be slaves,live in mass poverty and privation and misery whilst being forced on pain of their lives to endlessly worship the dictator Kim il song. That is what certainty looks like. Or in fact what it looks like if we remain in the EU. The UK will continue to be humiliated,ignored,held in contempt,bullied,pushed around, regulated unto death,taxed,robbed blind and have its laws over ruled and be forced to import yet more dangerous muslims into the country. That is what certainty re our membership of the EU looks like.

The fact that the Remainers want certaintly speaks to their statist anti freedom anti individual rights control freakery mentality.

Towards the Disintermediated State

What will save mankind from the tyranny of statism and collectivism but Science and Reason and its appliction in modern technology. The emergence of science via the enlightenment gave us the industrial revolution, Caxton's printing press brought literacy to the masses and robbed the clerics of their tyranical sway over the masses as the latter could read and question the Bible for themselves without benefit of clergy.

 Now in the 21st century we see another wave of the cultural and scientific revolution. Before the rise of the internet the press whilst free was limited to a small cadre of journalists but now anyone can publish their writing at the click of a button.Aspiring artists no longer require a producer but can promote themselves on youtube and get a following in the millions. Anyone can set up a business at a fraction of the cost it was hertofor and draw from a potentially limitles pool of customers across the globe.

Even more importanly than the abovementioned liberation via science and technology is the freedom people now have from the oppressive and tyranical state particularly in the field of politics and education. Before the internet homeschooling was looked upon however unfairly as the preserve of a small eccentric minority of parents but now any child can acquire a comprehensive education via the internet and this poses a direct threat to the statist who seek to capture the minds of youth for their ideological collectivist purposes and control education.

With the emergence of Bitcoin and other crypto currencies  people can completely bipass the State and taxation system dealing a deathblow to the collectivists everywhere with their big governement agendas. The age of the disintermediated state is upon us and it  will emerge as the greatest revolution in world history and will do more to bring about the capitalist revolution than any philosophical movement before it.

Here we go again

The opinion polls put Brexit and Remain neck and neck but have we not been here before,and very recently at that? First we were told that SNP would win the referendum on independence and then we were told that there would be another coalition government after the last election. Both were wrong so why should we pay the pollsters any mind since there is no evidence that their dodgy methodology has been in any way corrected. If they are wrong a third time it will be time to bury these voodoo soothsayers forever.

Master of confidence tricks

I once heard arch charlatan Roy Masters bemoan his wife's bovinity and remark that she was lucky he had not gone to his reward and left her ' alone on this miserable earth'.Havin been the subject of almost daily ritualistic vile misogynistic  abuse and character assassination for decades from Roy Masters on the radio one could forgive the poor Mrs Masters from lamenting 'if only'.

Religion is of course man made but one can imagine Roy Masters knocking on the gates of heaven exclaiming ' let me in I tell you, I'm Roy Masters'. To adapt  a line from Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice 'what does God put such idiots as Roy Masters on earth for  if not to provide  sport for our amusement?'.

Master Essays in Evil

Cult leader Roy Masters excoriated Sinatra's My Way because it celebrated man's achievements apart from God and was an exercise in egotism highlighting yet again the fundamental evil malevolent misanthropism of religion the jealous God that will not brook any human achievement without due recognition of its alleged Godly provenance.

Religion is of course a man made evil, the greatest hoax in human history that  allows psychopaths and sociopaths like Masters to gain an unhealthy ascendancy over the minds of his hapless dupes who buy into his God complex and worship at his Fhu shrine of vacuity and gobbledegook. It is my privelege to expose this fraud and arrant knave and by so doing hopefully free people from the hypnotic thrall he has over them.

Slavery of Taxation

A counter narrative to the near universal approbation of taxation  as a  morally laudable and legitimate tool of  governments is long overdue. The Panama leaks of tax evasion and avoidance and the faux moral outrage of leftist statist commentators against businessmen who have the temerity to circumvent the crippling tax regimes of their respective countries highlight this need even more.

Taxation far from being moral is nothing more than wholesale looting and theft by governments using altruism as their philosophical firewall which philosophy when challenged will prove as leaky as a colander but up to the present time has only been challenged by a few cultural outliers chief among them being Ayn Rand.

There is no real distinction between avoidance and evasion in relation to tax except in bogus legal terms. If one sees a mugger approaching and crosses the road is it an act of avoidance or evasion? Only with an appreciation of the importance of individual rights and the role of the State can one mount a moral case against taxation. If one comes from a philosophy of altruism and collectivism and this is the prevailing orthodoxy as it plainly is then a sizable amount of groundwork would be needed to counter the false inverted morality behind taxation.

It is the ideology of altruism that all statists use to justify their continued depradations and violations of private property and kleptocratic seizures of personal income through taxation by  aggressive and abusive States across the Western hemisphere and beyond. Challenge this with a coherent moral code of self interest and individual rights and the ramparts of statism will crumble like pie crust and with it the whole superstructure of taxation.

Why the UK needs a British Capitalist Party

The political struggle is not as it is always presented, ie, between Left versus and Right - Socialism versus neo liberalism but rather between what is loosely termed libertarianism versus authoritarianism. It is possible to be on the Right and be authoritarian and statist: witness Trump   who is an outright pro tarriff protectionist and anti immigrationist. Ukip too have the same protectionist agenda promising to close the border to immigrants to protect British jobs and also is pro tariff, excoriating Chinese steel 'dumping'. Both left and right therfor share the same statist premises.

In this false alternative between Left and Right what is conspicuous by its absence is any non statist party and consequently a  vacuum lies at the heart of British politics as a result which it is the intention of a capitalist party to occupy.In the week when a Conservative government has introduced the so called Living Wage which mandates compulsory wage rises for the low paid -an outright socialist policy that even old Labour did not dare introduce the need for a pro capitalist party in the UK has never been greater or more urgent.

At the heart of the Capitalist Party agenda would be an enshrinement of individual rights that the state would be prevented by law from violating. Any coercive act by the State namely the initiation of force against any citizen would be outlawed. This would preclude taxation which is out and out theft by the State,the use of force to deprive individual citizens of what is rightly theirs,the fruits of their labours. This process of tax elimination would happen not instantly but over a generation to enable people to prepare for the change and would involve an incremented decrease of the level of taxation over two decades or so. The moral argument against State coercive taxation would have as its base the right of the individual to make his own choices about his life and a complete rejection of the idea of altruism,self sacrifice, the pernicious collectivist notion and evil doctrine that the individual exists not to further his own life and happiness but to sacrifice to others, for the wholly bogus and mythical construct known as the 'public good'.

To shake off the rank odour of tradition and   moral stasis at the rotten heart of the British establishment two institutions that would have to be rejected are the monarchy and the church of England so dissolution of the first and disestablishment of the second would be the sine qua non of a free country liberated from the shackles of these twin evils casting a long shadow as they undoubtedly have of tryanny and arbitrary rule over British history.

The British Capitalist Party hereafter known as the BCP would eliminate the national debt by selling of or auctioning all State land and property and this with the addition of Royal property held by the monarchy would probably eliminate the debt in itself. Money would also be raised by selling off the NHS and the BBC, the prisons, and fire service.

 Tariffs and import duties will be unilaterally scrapped as the futility of  tariffs wars is amply historically documented and as if to illustrate the point only today  it has been announced that China will be imposing tariffs on British steel in retaliation for the latter's stand against its  so- called steel dumping.

Leaving the EU will also help to eliminate the debt and long lengthy treaty negotiations can be obviated by the abovemention unilateral tariff elimination so countries from around the world can 'dump' cheap products on the British market thus reducing the bills of the very poor far more effectively than the Living Wage which of course will also be scrapped.

In order to free up the entrepreneurial spirit of the British people all regulation of the economy will be scrapped along with all business taxes such as capital gains tax,corporation tax,business rates but again over a twenty year period to allow people to adjust. The licensing system will also be scraped which is just another defato taxation and has the demotivating initiative killing effect that all socialist bureaucracy does. Setting up a business should not require permission by the State with pettifgging rules that kill enterprise.

 There will be a complete separation of economy and State,privatisation of the Bank of England and the introduction of competing currencies. The state will have no borrowing powers and the state bailing out of banks will be outlawed. The energy market will be deregulated with no state funding or interference and offgem and all other regulatory state agencies across trade and industry will be abolished.

All State schools will be sold off and a separation of school and State effected as the State has no business running schools or controlling its curicula which has inevitably led to the politicisation  of schools and their capture by tenured statist radicals dominating the sector and contaminating academe  with their  agendas of political correctness.

The anti Effort mentality

Without effort on your part. Thus Roy Masters extols the virtues of non effort in his meditation exercise. Effort implies will,ego and that is bad! What human achievement,what great invention was ever accomplished without effort? Consider the lilies of the field..take no thought for the morrow. Yes the bums on skid row follow that injunction.

More Biblical and extra biblical crap

Love of the world is emnity with God. So the bible preaches misanthropy among its other evil preachments. But sometimes religious frauds like Roy Masters find that the bible is not quite prohibitive enough and a little further invention is required to restrict human pleasure. Music is frowned on by Masters but it is hard to point to any biblical scripture to validate his anti music stance but no matter he merely quotes the old saying music soothes the savage beast but he adds, it makes the beast more savage. This reminds me of the comic sketch in Blackadder when the puritans visit and Blackadder offers them a meal including turnips.'Turnips? exclaim the puritans,turnips are of the devil! He then offers them a seat on a chair and they say 'chairs? chairs are of the devil! Thus the arbitrary capricious nature of religious tyranny is highlighted with satirical effect.Who in their right mind would not prefer to listen to music than the droning of his Masters voice urging  on his sad followers to further and further mortifications of the flesh and denial of human pleasures?

More nonsense from on high

Don't judge. That is what the bible enjoins. Don't be judgmental. Why not? We make moral judgments about people all the time and quite right too. Hitler was an evil psychopath and right thinking people will agree and pass moral judgment on him. Indeed, not to judge his like would itself be immoral and wrong. The only people who benefit from our suspended judgment on them are wicked evil people. The good have nothing to fear from judgment. So judge and be prepared to be judged and be very suspicious of the motives of those who wish to discourage the  expression of moral judgments.

Once again Roy Masters is wrong about this and he takes his cue from the bible a document almost designed to destroy anyone who is foolish enough to attempt to follow its bizarre morally inverted injunctions. He says to discern what is wrong is okay but passing moral judgment upon it is wrong because only God can judge. So man is left in a morals free ethics free universe and evil waxes strong. Way to go.

The Bible Lies!

Another rule of thumb is whatever it says in the bible the opposite is true. What does it excoriate as evil? Pride, leaning to one's own understanding, the intellect, words,knowledge, planing for the future, wealth,success,pleasure, in other words everything that man requires for his survival and flourishing is denounced  abused and denigrated in the bible. Was there ever a more hostile anti man philosophy ever penned?

Roy Masters takes all his vile teachings from the bible,he may not be a biblical expert but he has picked up on its essential central message and with a few concessions to modern vernacular such as his liberal use of the word ego he is following its line faithfully. Rather than him being some aberrant deviation of an essentially good and moral doctrine he is rather an accurate representative of its essential evil.

Observation Excercise in Inanition

Roy Masters cultist urges his followers to observe not analyse.This is a call to an excercise of mind emptying,reducing the mind to its pre adult infantile tabula rasa state, a rudimentary perceptual level of conciousness. This is a state of craven inanition and it is what Masters requires of his mind snatched followers.

The very thing that separates man from his animal ancestors namely his conceptual conciousness is the very thing Masters seeks to obliterate and anhiliate with his call to an observational state of conciouness. To merely perceive floating perceptual images is what an infant does and it only become an adult by learning to acquire a conceptual awareness via concept formation. This requires mental effort, the application of thought,it is the very opposite of passive observation of objects and things which is the level of a mental retard.

Reduced to an animal awareness through observation Masters is ironically correct when he says man is a fallen animal but the reason he has fallen is because with Master's guidance he has abandoned his mind and substituted blank watching for the  process of cognition.

Roy Masters The ugly truth

Some say Roy Masters is a hate filled misogynist who contradicts the biblical message but is this so? He says the first man listened to his wife,ate the apple and the whole human race fell and inherited original sin which was to disobey God and seek knowledge. That is the very essence of the biblical  message. As a result of this fall man became prideful,egotistical, starting leaning on his own understanding. Sounds familiar? It should do because it is practically word for word what Roy Masters has been saying for over 50 years. The unpalatable truth for some who are of the God persuasion is that Roy Masters has faithfully interpreted scriptural teaching and to reject and lambaste him is to reject the bible itself.

Not only is Roy Masters evil but the whole message of the bible is evil too, it is the most wicked document ever written. Masters simply makes plain and spells out explicitly what religion usually keeps hidden. When did you last hear any priest from the pulpit talking about the treacherous nature of women? It has taken Roy Masters as despicable human being as he undoubtedly is to remind us of a long concealed truth namely that the bible is evil and religion is the number one cause of human misery through history. It has attempted to whitewash its true nature but Masters has ripped its carefully constructed mask off. For this at least we should be grateful to him.

Culture kampf

With cultist Roy Masters the general rule of thumb is, whatever he says the opposite is true. How about this little gem from way back: 'culture rises when civilization falls'. This hatred of culture has a familiar ring does it not? How about Josef Goebelles on the subject: 'when I hear the word culture I reach for my revolver'. A bit later came Mao and his cultural revolution which consisted in killing all the intelletuals and driving the rest from the cities and on to the land where they died by the tens of thousands and of course the same thing happened in the killing fields of Cambodia. In China anyone wearing glasses was suspicious as it denoted intellectualism and book reading.

Of course this hatred of learning and culture goes back a long way. The original sin as described in the bible is man having the temerity to seek knowledge. 'The letter killeth,the spirit giveth life'. Further proof of the anti man anti life philosophy at the root of religion and mysticism.

The difference with Masters is he comes out and says it,making explicit what is usually kept implicit. He has actually attacks culture by open conflating it with cannibalism  seeking to package deal it with democracy and high culture. This is beyond philistinism and is wanton and willful attempt to destroy one of the pillars of our hard won civilization.

Money for Rope

Cultist Roy Masters used to excoriate the Plain Truth magazine for the way it suckered its readers into supporting its organization but Masters was quite happy to go on air panhandling on a daily basis for the Fhu and Frank Cain tells the story of how funds were getting desperately low and Masters resorted to extra manipulative guilt mongering in order to get more donations and in a week's time the coffers were overflowing and he said to Frank, 'see,that's how you do it'.

Of course most radio programmes rely on advertising but no business in its right mind would sponsor Master's drivel so he had to fund it himself through daily begging and his programmes along with his turgidly unreadable books were effectively vanity publishings and broadcastings. Still he would have been more honourably employed as a rat catcher and would have done far less harm than he has in his 50 career of evil.

Old Caca Masters

Roy Masters cult meister would often extol the 'blessings of a poor memory', an alzheimic state' which is at odds with his nasty reference to that condition as  ' old caca's disease'. Well now he appears to have an advanced form of that condition and like his hero Ronald Reagan is sinking into a mental twilight world where everyday words elude him. What goes around comes around I guess. No doubt when the conditon becomes more marked he will be whisked away by his family to preserve the myth of Roy the perfect in a North Korean style rewriting of reality. Watch this space.

Intuition The destruction of the human consciousness

One of cult leader Roy Master's much bandied words is intuition. What does he mean by it? Well contrary to what all know man does not really get his knowledge from observing the world and applying his reason and logic to problems,but,according to Masters from going within. We just know. An indwelling spirit guides us if we open up to it,meditate with his guidance and be in filled.Poppycock of course but it has some appeal to the lazy minded,those for whom thinking is just too much of a chore and who would rather turn within, switch off their brain and wait for divine instruction. Thus is subjectivist delusion substituted for the excercise of reason.Who gains from this act of self lobotomy other than the Master himself who now has a legion of brain dead subjects he can programme and brainwash with his mystical mush.  

Thou shalt not shop -unless the council says so

So you thought only the US had its religious right? With the cynical help of SNP  Labour and the unhinged tory religious backwoodsmen the governement's attempts to loosen the sunday trading laws have been defeated. Even the supporters of the modest bill were arguing it for the wrong altruistic reason claiming it was to enable consumers to shop at their convenience and no mention was made whatsoever about the rights of the shop owners to run their business and open and close at their choosing.It was taken as a given that the shop owners are effectively in the employ of the local councils who will determine when they trade as if the shops had all been nationalised which in effect with all the tax and regulations they have been of course.

So the church is still ruling the country after we had supposed it was long since unseated. Only distestablishment will rid us of this priestcraft and proxy clerical dictatorship.

Masterful Deceit

When Roy Masters used to wave his cross around and perform exorcisms his psychotic audience would obediently fall in line and auto suggestion-like go through the usual theatrics of frothing at the mouth,writhing and gibbering and then making a standard confession about some indiscretion of the past,a sexual transgression or whatever. Sinking to new lows of moral depravity the witchdoctor Masters would subject his suggestible audience to ritual humiliation and Frank Cain would refer to him thereafter as the son of Skeva who apparently in the Bible went round attempting to perform exorcisms but lacking the genuine authority came to grief and was ridiculed for his imposture.

Some idiotic follower attempted to imitate Masters and perform an exorcism on a hapless subject and within a week had suffered a massive stroke.Such was the havoc Masters left in his wake.

Cult of Personality

Cult show host Roy Masters used to boast I've been on the air for 40 years and no one has ever challenged me.I used to be well impressed not to say in awe of  that but then  on the very rare ocasions that someone would actually have the temerity to call in and take him up on the challenge and  question his omniscience he would harrangue them,talk over them,intimidate,abuse them  and then cut them off! Afterwards he would apoligise and seek to rationalize his behaviour by saying that the person in question was not sincere  in their questioning and had nothing to say.Of course the standard  cult syndrome would kick in and I would think yes that person must have been in the wrong for such is the power of the Master to hoodwink his followers.

Another standard cult practice is to convince your followers that they are special, part of an elite elect who can see through the fraudulent system and the shallowness of others and that what they used to think was their social ineptness and awkwardness was really a sign that they were special,a chosen few,superior to the masses. Imagine all the misfits and geeks and inadequate psychotics who would jump for joy at the news that they are not really losers and dorks after all! In the words of Frank Cain 'I always used to wonder what would motivate Jehovas Witnesses and Mormons to go to door to door touting for Christ and then it struck me.Here was an opportunity for social inadequates and insignificant little nobodies to represent the one who organized the cosmos'.

The blight of religion on mankind

In his latter years Frank Cain after a lifetime studying different religious groups put a sign on his wall reading 'I haven't got a clue'. He would lament to me that all he got from God was a deafening silence. Didn't God owe him something and should he not at least meet him half way? Now I would respond to that by saying has it not occurred to you that the reason you get that deafening silence is because there is nothing up there,you've been sold a pup. At least he saw though the fake Roy Masters as have so many of us subsequently so he did not go to his grave totally deluded.

To waste a life struggling to believe something incredible is however very sad but such are the miserations that are caused by peddlars of faith and the damage they do is as unconsionable as it is incalculable.

Self Praise is no Recommendation

The late Frank Cain, Roy Master's one time UK factotum once said "why do people think that Roy Masters is so great? Because Roy Masters tells them so every day on the radio whereas I tell people all my faults and the despise me".Indeed Master's career on the radio could be summed up as one long advertisment for himself.The guru cannot be seen to be that wrong.

Of course I used to lap it all up as a credulous youth and beleived him when he said one day he would become world famous but as the years crept by I kept on wondering why it was taking so long and that day of course never came, and we we are here today and he has remained in well deserved virtual anonymity as he descends  into an alzheimic twilight world of rambling incoherence.At least he has been proven right about one thing.It is very easy to hypnotise and fool people

Religion and its intolerant adherents

Interesting how nasty religious people can get when you tell them you no longer subscribe to their wacky belief system. Islam will kill apostasasies but Christians are far more subtle and merely insinuate threatening warnings about the 'terrible price to pay' for abandoning your faith.Project fear indeed.How do they know what is going to befall the unbeleivers?What special powers do they have to know the mind of God?Surely this is great arrogance on their part to say the least.And how egotistical to think one is so special that God has special plan with you in mind!

Most such religious people if my experience is anything to go by live lives of dubious integrity and have used their religion to justify every moral infraction in their sorry mediocre lives so it is very its hard to imagine that even God is going to smile indulgently upon them when they go to their reward. God of course is a fiction but if he did exist he would give these spouters of pious cant a  good tongue lashing at the very least before sending them to the other place.

Of Human Credulity

Every age it would appear is the age of credulity.The biggest hoax in human history the Bible and its enduring hold on people is testimony to that.Longevity lends credibility.If something has been believed long enough its power over people is entrenched and no objectivity regarding it is possible or only achieved with tremendous effort as received wisdom is hard to challenge.As the fuhrer of all people once observed the broad mass of a nation are more likely fall prey to a big lie than a small one.

One useful way to counter this bias of longevity is to imagine what sort of response the bible would elicit from the general public were it published for the first time today.Total incredulity would be the almost universal response.The story of Christ would be seen as a fantastic fiction and the product the work of a feverish imagination and diseased mind and anyone taking it at all seriously would be regarded as mentally disturbed and in need of medication.Those who started to congregate in the name of Christ would be dismissed as members of a cult.But because alas the bible was produced millennia ago it has this weight of longevity on its side that more than counters any rational objective criticism.

There is however hope for it emerges that atheism was not born in the 20th century as some people may suppose or even invented by Christopher Hitchens and co.It would seem that it goes right back to the days subsequent to the bible's publication,that there were contemporary atheists and this is a subject well worth exploring.Not everybody was fooled at the time...

Master's Bully Pulpit

Cultist Roy Masters was one of the most abrasive aggressive talk show host on air hurling abusive rhetoric with abandon but like most bullies when treated similarly suddenly would play the victim claiming there was a conspiracy against him.

Like his idol fellow aggressive Trump he seeks to silence people with threatening lawsuits and he has lost not a few so spurious insubstantial and frivolous were they.He has got away with tax deductible charitable status for decades claiming absurdly that the FHU is a church although he has repeatedly boasted that it is not and that 'you cannot join'.Fortunately the authorities rumbled his deception and withdrew charitable status 15 years ago noticing that it was a for profit organization funneling large sums to fund a radio network broadcasting right wing views which again is expressly forbidden charities.

Such is the chicanery and double dealing of what Frank Cain referred to as the curly headed swine and guru of the unattainable.But then who in his right mind would want to atttain  anything he is peddling?

Be Still and Know Nothing

As human beings we see,perceive and conceptualize our perceptions into broad abstractions and invent computers,build skyscrapers,create civilization and culture.According to Roy Masters this is all wrong.Instead we should see and know instantly,without thought or words for thought and words take time to construct and this is bad because we should just know in a timeless state instantly and this 'wordless' knowing is vastly superior to the pathetic word based understanding of fallen humans.

Be still and obey.This is 'mystery' and  it is good because it is mystery and we should not question it for to do so is to 'play God'.Thus the state of a mental retard is lauded to the ideal and the human mind is dismissed as a tool of sinful Adam.Thus is the connection between mysticism and mental illness clearly delineated.Strictly for the birds and the fhuiac birdbrains who swallow it indeed, unthinkingly.

Alan Masters or Taylor?

Alan Masters son of loonytunes Roy is not quite sure whether he is Alan Masters or Alan Taylor as he uses the latter name when hosting his radio prog Drive in about cars.On one of the latest shows he can be found boasting of losing his driving licence for speeding which he clearly finds amusing,using the road as his personal race track .

As  a father one would question the wisdom of a fifty year old man risking his life thus acting out what is clearly a  mid life crisis.It is hard to know whether he has assumed the monicker Alan to avoid embarrassing his father or does so to distance himself from his equally embarrassing father but it is probably the former as he sometimes appears on his Sunday Conversations himself talking the familiar Masters brand of gibberish.Whatever the case here is a man clearly leading a double life having his cake and eating it too.
