after making the fatal error of missing a penalty
In the Piers Morgan post I linked to an article on the Cutting edge website that looked at the occult nature of the Olympic Games. The article refers to a book, published sometime between 1776 and 1788, by Edward Gibbons entitled 'The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire'. Apparently it was in six volumes and Gibbons was 'universally hailed as achieving his objective brilliantly'.
The reason this book is mentioned in the article is because its author makes a case for it being not only a description of how and why the Roman Empire fell but also 'a document which detailed precisely how a successful and powerful Empire could be subverted and destroyed'. The inference made in the article is that this book may well have been referred to by Adam Weishaupt of the Bavarian Illuminati as he was formulating his plans for the subversion of the 'West'.
Of course I have no idea if this is true or not but what caught my eye was the five summations of the reasons why the Roman Empire fell. It seems to me we can see all five being rigorously followed today. The five reasons are listed below along with a few observations of my own.
1. The dramatic increase of divorce undermined the institution of the family.
We have certainly seen a dramatic increase in divorce in recent times but that is only one of many ways in which the family as an institution is coming under sustained attack.
2. The imposition of higher taxes undermined the economic stability and vitality of the Empire. Why were the taxes raised to such ruinous levels? To pay for deficit government spending, to pay for food for all in society and to pay for government-sponsored activities of diversion, such as circuses and sports. Interestingly, as the time of the final collapse drew closer, greater emphasis was placed on sports, to divert the attention of the public from the distressing news of massive trouble within the Empire.
Only last week we've seen the EU tax known as VAT rise to 20%. The VAT rise is being touted as one of the ways we can 'bring down the deficit' so again we can see a distinct correlation between now and the end of the Roman Empire. Of course this is only one small way in which the 'economic stability and vitality' of this country is being undermined. Another being the slow and intentional dismantling of our manufacturing base. The elites have certainly become more sophisticated in their ability to subvert and destroy in this regard.
Even more alarming is the observation that sports were used to distract the public as the Empire began its collapse. Apart from the usual never ending cycle of live and recorded sporting events, with football being the most evident, we are now being hyped up ready for the coming 2012 Olympics. The very event the Cutting Edge article was referring to.
3. The drive for personal pleasure had become very intense, even to the point of obsession. Gibbons noted that, at the very end, sports had become more exciting and brutal.
There can be no denying the hedonistic and materialistic nature of much of society in present days. It should be remembered that in Roman times there weren't distractions such as films, TV, radio, magazines, computer games etc. Certainly many computer games could be described as 'exciting and brutal' as could much of the output of Hollywood and the TV industry.
4. People lost their faith, both religiously and in their government. Paganism gave way to Christianity and the efficient Roman Government gave way to chaos and disintegration.
I don't consider the Christianity of the Roman Empire to be true Christianity in any meaningful sense. It had, by then, been largely captured and manipulated by the Roman elite into a control system, with Pagan overtones, for the masses. In present times it is Christianity itself that is under attack in a variety of ways. It remains to be seen what 'they' want to replace it with. It certainly looks like Islam (a control system par excellence) could be a candidate, although it could well be merely one part of a dialectic that sees some sort of world religion emerge from the engineered collapse.
5. Hidden conspirators were working within the government to secretly destroy it. They worked quietly, invisibly and deceitfully; during the entire time they were secretly dismantling the government of the Roman Empire, they publicly proclaimed their unswerving support of it.
There are hidden conspirators and those that are not so hidden. Fabians, Bilderbergers, members of Chatham House, Common Purpose, the list is extensive. All of these organisations and the people involved in them are clearly working to destroy this country. Who can deny that the likes of Blair, Brown, Mandelson, Cameron, Clegg, Clarke and all the way back to Heath and probably beyond, have been dismantling the government of this country while publicly proclaiming their unswerving support of it?
I suspect that it wasn't only Adam Weishaupt that studied this book, or at least utilised its conclusions via other sources. Much of the above and more have been the hallmarks of the Cultural Marxists of the Frankfurt School in their endeavour to subvert and destroy the West.
I'm constantly staggered by those who are blinkered (or brainwashed) enough to think we are 'progressing' towards some sort of Utopia when all the evidence points in the opposite direction. Britain is being deliberately subverted and destroyed and the sooner those that are living in denial realise this, the sooner we can expose the 'hidden conspirators' behind it. Only when this is done do we have any hope of living in a sane, balanced, healthy and peaceful country.
