Mattie’s father in True Grit is a mason, and we see here amongst his things a square and compass:
Serious Analysis of Cultural Trends and Geo-politics

Last year, our friend Peter Parker wrote an excellent analysis of The Knowing. It’s a must-read. All the more relevant, then, that The Knowing presaged the gulf oil distaster. The only discrepancy is that the date is 5 days off in the film – but still – a year ahead of time, the Knowing predicts a gulf oil disaster almost to the tee. Take a gander at Parker’s analysis, and you’ll see why this is.

As with my article on the prevalence of the masonic-Illuminati in top, mainstream historians’ works, the truth is often uncovered even in scholarship opposed to the principle of “secret cabals” influencing history. Cambridge historian David Thomson writes on the back cover of his Penguin Europe Since Napoleon that “The pattern of European development since 1789 can be understood only by study of those all-embracing forces that have affected the whole continent, from Britain to the Balkans.” [emphasis mine]
One of these dark forces was the Carbonari. Thomson writes:
“The ultimate models for most secret societies were the Lodges of eighteenth century Freemasonry and from them was derived much of the ritual, ceremonies of initiation, secret signs, and passwords. The more immediate models were the secret societies formed in Italy and Germany to resist the rule of Napoleon: especially the Tugenbund (League of Virtue) in Germany and the Carbonari (the charcoal burners) of Italy, both founded by 1810. But a rich variety of similar organizations appeared throughout Europe: the Federati of Piedmont and the Adelphi in Lombardy, the Spanish liberal societies after 1815, the Philomathians of Poland modelled on the German students’ Bursenschaften, the Russian Union of Salvation of 1816 and the Republican Society of the South.” (pg. 140) Read more of this post

I was awestruck while reading a biography on V.I. Lenin recently. The strange synchronicities concern his creation of a massively extended police state-the “Cheka,” compared with the actions of Hitler and our modern U.S. are prodigious, to say the least. One might be tempted to think that, since Lenin was a Communist and of Jewish origin, there would be no similarity between his philosophy and Hitler’s. However, the facts speak otherwise. Hitler was a racist and an occultist to be sure, but it is not often mentioned that Lenin was, as well. The explanation for this is that the real power behind these statist regimes in the false dialectic of communist and fascist is the banking power.
Despite his appearance of being a sophisticated, modern atheist, Vladimir Lenin appears to have had an affinity for the Satanic (as did Marx). According to researcher Juri Lina and the Modern History Project, was inducted into the Masonic Lodge of the Nine Sisters. Lenin’s philosophy was, in fact, highly racial: a key point missed and ignored by many researchers. In fact, Lenin, like many of the elites (such as Hitler), was obsessed with bloodlines and racial purity. Lenin Biographer Dmitri Volkogonov writes:
“Paradoxically, for a Marxist who believed in the primacy of the environmental over inherited factors, she [Lenin's sister] also asserted the dubious proposition that Lenin’s Jewish origins are further confirmation of the exceptional abilities of the Semitic tribe, [confirmation] always shared by [Vladimir] Ilyich Lenin…Lenin always valued Jews highly.’ Anna’s claim explains, for instance, why Lenin frequently recommended giving foreigners, especially Jews, intellectually demanding tasks, and leaving the elementary work to the ‘Russian fools.’ [Anna continuing] ‘…in the Lenin Institute, as well as in the Institute of the Brain…they have long recognized the great gifts of this [Jewish] nation and the extremely beneficial effects of its blood on the progeny of mixed marriages. Ilyich himself rated their revolutionary qualities highly, their ‘tenacity’ in the struggle, as he put it, contrasting it with the more sluggish and unstable character of the Russians. He often pointed out that the great attributes of organization and the strength of the revolutionary bodies in the south and west of Russia arose precisely from the fact that 50% of their members were of that nationality.”[i] Read more of this post

If you’ve read much in terms of Catholic theology and Church History, it’s not too long before you come into contact with various theories about what has happened in the last several decades. There are countless magazines, books and theories, from all different vantage points – some “rad trad,” others less trad, but everyone knows there’s been a crisis.
When I left Calvinism in 2003 I was immediately confronted with this big issue. As a veteran researcher, now, in this topic, I can point newbies in the right direction in terms of what has happened. Roughly 300 years ago, numerous anti-Christian/Catholic groups such as the Freemasons and Illuminists decided to bring an end to what they perceived to be a mental tyranny over the mind’s of men (to use Thomas Jefferson’s phrase). The medieval church was seen to be precisely this. Think for example, of Mozart’s famous opera, the Magic Flute, where the Church of the middle ages is pictured as the nighttime, and Masonic Enlightenment rationalism is pictured as the true dawn of humanity.

In the first part, we saw that the Henson/Lucas/Bowie Labyrinth is itself a labyrinthine maze of Sarah’s psyche in a long journey towards something…But what? In part two we will see. We left off with Sarah entering the Labyrinth, an image of her subconscious (which is also an entry into the “spiritual” world, or other dimensions), and landing in a bizarre land of fairies, gnomes and other fantastical oddities.
Things are not as they seem – the fairies bite and the gnomes piss in the pools. This is interesting, because there is a bit of Freudianism at work here, where Sarah, in her subconscious, is immediately confronted with sexuality and bodily functions – a theme that will continue in the labyrinth.
We have already seen obelisks (images of the phallus), and Sarah is immediately confronted with bodily functions where Hoggle relieves himself in a pool as we see both obelisks and “pissing” at 4:53-5:06:
Again, this is all related to Sarah’s transition from childhood to puberty. And, bizarrely, as we move further into the “labyrinth” of sexuality, we will find some very graphic innuendos will begin to emerge in Sarah’s psyche. But before we get to that, one thing that is interesting to note is the film’s subtle racial views. Not that I so much mind speaking in terms of races and nations, but ironically, the pseudo-liberal, Kabbalistically-minded Lucas-Henson duo have no problem mocking Asians, various Europeans and blacks.
