Denuding Ourselves

 
MANY would regard sycophancy as, in some measure, an antithesis of pride but, in point of fact, it is one of pride’s psychological termini. Christopher F. Rufo’s sad and disturbing analysis lacks only an acknowledgement that the West’s voluntary decampment to skid row is ultimately responsible for the evil pedagogy he rightly deplores. Apropos of the Aztecs, they were monsters who deserved most of what they got from the conquistadores. No regrets are necessary for the disappearance of their worthless culture – not beyond meet lamentations about the bloody strife in history between fallen men. The Aztecs were hated for their arrogance and hideous violence by other peoples in – or surrounding – the Valley of Mexico. These disgruntled natives were the largest contingent of the force that finally razed Tenochtitlan in 1521.

What leftists in California’s ‘education’ establishment are doing, however, is, in any case, far more sinister than just romanticising a non-European imperium and ‘way of life’ predating Cortes along the usual hippy-dippy lines. As Rufo explains, they are committed to overthrowing and replacing Christianity – whose adherents they blame for the “theocide” of their ‘gods.’

Easily mistaken for another passing example of aberrant Golden State fanaticism, it is really only a more developed form of an ideology now becoming mainstream in Australia too. Never before in this country’s history have non-Aborigines oriented themselves and their solicitude to Aborigines in a wholly non-Christian manner.

That isn’t to argue the old missionary approach was perfect. It wasn’t. Little attempt was made in decades past to sacralise the indigenous, to imbue it with conversable truths, thereby solidifying faith and cultural belonging. But the inverted over-correction – paganising the sacred – is far more damaging to everyone.

When Pope Francis paid homage to an Incan fertility goddess in 2019, angry Catholics saw it as heresy, as the accommodation of something both non-Christian and theologically anti-Christian. Latin American Jesuit that he is, the pope would have seen the billeting of pachamama as eirenic good form and the generously traded submissiveness in supposedly trivial things (not theirs to trade) that is an ingrained habit of the unctuous left. As if to infuriate critics and embolden syncretists still further, the Vatican minted a 10 euro silver coin last year decorated with a Gaia earth mother.

Paul Hogan could make fun of liberal white fondness for the Magic Abo in 1986.”

 
With rot like that at the top, it’s little wonder Western everyman has come to believe there must have been a mystical superiority in the old gods, especially vis-a-vis ‘nature’ (indigenous deities are invariably carbon neutral). In California, the ‘Christian God’ is soon to be caricatured in schools as capitalist despoiler, race favourer and, I suppose, sexual killjoy. Christians of the US and Australia who believe they can head this project off at the pass by indulging and/or embracing pre-Christian cosmologies and rubrics are in for a shock.

Already more accustomed than kippers to being cleansed and smoked, Australians are also used to being ‘welcomed’ to stadiums and facilities they paid for by highly remunerated shamans garbed in possum skins. The occult ritual (recently invented) is unashamedly explained as a blessing – itself an affront to all monotheists, especially Christians. Even the Director-General of ASIO is annually incensed, though it’s encouraging to see he manoeuvres upwind. Paul Hogan could make fun of liberal white fondness for the Magic Abo in 1986. Today, it’s state policy that Nev thinks his way in the dark. Like I said, everyone is damaged by dead empires striking back: indigenes by the allure of best forgotten worlds and Westerners by forgetting their own.

    The allure of the past practices and attitudes for indigenes is immense now that they have been relieved of needing to assure their own and their children’s survival. They can indulge their worst proclivities and condemn the very civilisation that provides for their physical needs.

    As for westerners, I can’t see how ditching their own civilisation is attractive when doing so will strip them and their children of resources and protections for survival.

    It wasn’t the small European invading force that brought down the Aztecs but the peoples whom they treated as less than human. I can see where the pacifist message of Christianity brought by newcomers would have been much more attractive than the savagery of the Aztec religion. Christianity was much more conducive to their and their children’s survival.

    In Victorian self determination is now policy. What does self determination mean I hear you say? Well anything you want it to is the reply. It is starting to dawn however on a number of public servants that one definition of self determination spells their demise as their empires based on crown land along with crown land potentially disappear.

    In one case we have 100% proof of badness, in the other 100% proof of goodness. Logic. Their carbon neutral gods and lifestyle is a corollary ( nice touch BTW)

    Given the sooks we are dragging up at the moment, I would love to see our ‘indigenous’ kids undergo ritual initiation. Never mind that the local mobs (NSW – Awabakal & Darkinjung and a few blow-ins from Moree & Gloucester and Dubbo) rituals have been lost. Given that we are teaching them didge (NT), emu dances (also NT), dot painting (also NT), and making totems(Camillaroi-Sydney & NT) then let’s initiate using NT rituals as a 4th pillar of being claiming indig status, blood descent, acceptance by people & self-identification are the other 3

    To ruminate for a bit, this might be something we’re doing wrong. Modern Santa is a very recent invention and geared entirely towards encouraging consumption, and comes across as absurd as Barney The Dinosaur, once the child’s brain starts to develop. He is quite detached from Christmas in the traditional Christian sense.

    Victoria launches country’s first truth-telling commission:

    Not all Aboriginal Victorians have been as accepting of the announcement, however, with Greens Senator Lidia Thorpe welcoming the Commission but remaining sceptical.

    “We can’t move forward as a country until we reckon with the truth about our history,” she said.

    Senator Thorpe said the Commission is an “historic opportunity” for “genuine Treaty process” both in the State and nationally.

    “Victoria’s Treaty process has been a pretty token gesture so far. If Labor is serious about justice for our First Peoples, they will also agree to a moratorium on logging while the Commission does its work. You can’t be serious about telling the truth about our ongoing connection to these lands and waters, as you keep destroying it.”

    And when all development of the land is placed under a moratorium, the forests closed, the mines shut down, the farms “re-natured”, where will the money for compensation be found?

  20. Turtle says:

    School assemblies (government schools) in the 70s and eveN the eighties began with the Lord’s Prayer. Nobody noticed, but that has been replaced by the Welcome to/Acknowledgement of “country”.

  24. Lord Muck says:

    Stumbled across the Super Rugby game on the box last night – turned out to be the ‘indigenous round’, so the game was preceded by a tedious and half-rehearsed series of welcoming chants/dances. Many if not most of the participants looked as if an indigenous forebearer had integrated quite intimately with one of the colonial invaders, possibly some generations back. Many of them also looked fairly embarrassed at the whole thing. Of course the commentators had to chime in with the script, jobs depending on it.

    I’m entirely happy for the aboriginal people to celebrate the good elements of their historical culture, the success of their colleagues, and I see much of this confected ceremonial as quite harmless and irrelevant. It becomes ridiculous and threatening when it becomes compulsory, which in effect it basically is now.

    But I wonder if many aboriginal people do not feel patronised and insulted by something as entirely imported and European as rugby union going through the charade of an ‘indigenous round’?

    Of course, if Rugby Australia was entirely honest about it an ‘indigenous round’ would actually celebrate and honour the various Pacific island nations and cultures whose players now dominate the competition and the “Australian” national team.

    The Dominicans with whom I worship are prey to the usual leftist pieties, and their weekly ‘prayers of the faithful’ is often a shopping list of ABC/Greens talking points. One of them today, about a Christian aid project in a third world country, mentioned toilets by name as one of the desired outcomes, FFS. Then they prayed for the recovery of Daniel Andrews. Don’t get me wrong: praying for your enemies is the Christian thing to do, and Christians in Victoria have no bigger enemy than Andrews. But I don’t recall ever hearing them pray for George Pell by name.

  31. Judge Dredd says:

    The war on Christianity is real, and has been going on for over two thousand years. But as Jesus says, his church will remain until the end, let us hope that it is filled with millions of true Christians.
    To see so much hatred and usurping of Christianity that is so blatantly public is enough to push many to finally accept there really is a spiritual evil as well as a good and as a result so many people over the last few years that I have followed have become Christians.
    It is a time of great awakening.

  32. duncanm says:

    this is the problem – idiots in charge, with idiots listening.

    They do not represent anything the indigenous may have once walked through

    Austrian Catholic: Why I Threw Pachamama Statues into the Tiber

    Alexander Tschugguel tells the Register his motivations for seizing the idols, why he’s decided to come forward, and what he hopes his action will achieve.The Vatican said it was theft, the Pope asked for forgiveness from those who were offended. What is your response to these reactions?

    Firstly, it’s not theft because I didn’t enrich myself with it, I didn’t get the statues and sell them or anything. I just threw them into the Tiber. If it were something like that then it’s not theft. The second thing is if the Pope apologized to those who were offended, he can do this, he’s the Holy Father so of course, if he thinks people are offended, of course he can apologize and maybe he’s in the right to do that. But the point is that I released my video to tell all those people that I only had one reason to do it: to defend the glory of God, to defend God and His teaching, and Jesus’ teaching.

    umm it seems like theft : quacks and waddles like theft: If I were advising him I would stay right away from the whole law thing : something like “Quetacoatl/God said they needed to be restored to Nature, and i was obeying his/her/hem’s command …

  35. ProfessorFred Lenin says:

    Dont knock the ancient traditional smoking ceremony ,it isreally old invented by a half aboriginal tv “star” in 1989 so its over 30 years old . I worked with aboriginals for a few years all over the North West in the 1960s ,and I never once heard of it and I spent a lot of time in remote reserves and missions amongst Real tribal aboriginals .
    This was of course long before the aboriginal industry was invented by whitlam and the urban know alls ,who had never met an aboriginal in their lives ,like most of them today .
    A small point hearing a group of Real aboriginals speak in their own tongue always reminded me of Tamil The South Indian language . Also the Veddah people of Sri Lanka
    Who are the aboriginals there ,perhaps our aboriginals originated in the same race group ?

  36. Roger says:

    The state forests have been logged for over a century in some instances. Often they’ve been clear-felled and replanted.

    They do not represent anything the indigenous may have once walked through

    No; in fact, as the reports and journals of the explorers and early settlers attest, the indigenous burned the forests so they resembled park land, which makes perfect sense given their way of life – it would have been next to impossible to hit a kangaroo or an emu with a spear or a boomerang in a thickly wooded eucalyptus forest. (I think it was Eric Rolls who calculated that there were more trees on the eastern seaboard 200 years after white settlement than there would have been when Captain Cook navigated his way up the coast.) Senator Thorpe doesn’t appear to have a very deep understanding of traditional aboriginal culture.

  37. Squirrel says:

    “Paul Hogan could make fun of liberal white fondness for the Magic Abo in 1986.”

    Ernie Dingo’s Robert Götterdämmerung is another sad loss to our screens.

  38. PB says:

    “A small point hearing a group of Real aboriginals speak in their own tongue always reminded me of Tamil The South Indian language . Also the Veddah people of Sri Lanka”

    In the far North there are some very scattered families of unusual looking, very small indigenous people who look conspicuously different (I thought hobbits when I first saw them), and some here say they are the surviving descendents of the original inhabitants who were largely wiped out by those who came in through the North from Asia (whom most of today’s aboriginals are descended from).

    Too right, duncanm. And they have even had the front to name it the “Yoo-rrook” commission.

    Apart from rooking us, this commission will as usual abridge our freedom under the law. Every time some new quasi-judicial body is set up – this one will “have the power of a Royal Commission” – you can bet that, whatever the stated objective, the end result will be to deprive someone of his rights or property.

  42. Diogenes says:

    The rituals include whatever is traditional , the stone, the scarifucation of the chest, whatever.

  48. notafan says:

    Pope Francis isn’t the Antichrist.

  49. C.L. says:

    What’s the difference between a Jesuit and the regular Catholics, CL?

    The Society of Jesus (SJ) – aka Jesuits – are a religious order of priests, Petros. They’re not ‘different’ to Catholics but they do have their own traditions. They were traditionally one of the most scholarly orders in the Church; typically, a Jesuit did anything up to 10 or more years of study in the seminary and then in a specialist field on top of that. Law, languages, physics, medicine – you name it. This pope – Bergoglio – is something of an exception. While very intelligent, he isn’t intellectually stellar. Jesuits started out as an elite at the service of the pope; they then became ‘social justice’ warriors.

  50. Tim Neilson says:

    Pope Francis isn’t the Antichrist.

    I didn’t say he was, nota. I just asked what he’d be doing differently if he was.

  51. Astatine Jones says:

    Feeding Christians to the lions after bathing in their blood in Nero’s big marble tub from the Vat museum. The usual stuff. He’d listen to a lot more heavy metal too.

    When Aztec society was at its height, most Europeans lived a more squalid and less civilised life, regardless of the influence of the Church.

    Seeking to understand past civilisations and cultures, recognising their relevance to and influence on the present, is surely only a threat to those with closed minds who are insecure about their own way of life, past and present. Can’t get any more ‘cancel culture’ than that!

  53. Andre Lewis says:

    Noted a few comments about Lidia Thorpe the Green senator who paraded into parliament on her first day covered in war paint and a possum (probably actually rabbit) cloak. Plenty of evidence on line that she has as many aboriginal ancestors as Bruce Pascoe, i.e. none.

  54. Roger says:

    The Biblical picture is more subtle – the antichrist deceives people, sits in the temple of God and receives worship as God.

  55. Astatine Jones says:

    Yes Rex, I take your point.

    In response, I could counter that (1) generalising the Aztecs as ‘genocidal cannibals who lived in perpetual fear of the sun going down’ is historically and intellectually inaccurate and lazy and (2) Christianity and the civilisations that have embraced it have their own rich history of bloodletting, sacrifice and torture which dwarfs the deeds of the Aztecs, Incas, Mayans etc.

    Superb ideologically-inspired ‘contrablution’ devoid of any actual meaning on your part too Rex. One might almost mistake you for a politician!

  59. John A says:

    From the linked article:

    The document claims that whites began “grabbing the land,” “hatching hierarchies,” and “developing for Europe/whiteness,” which created “excess wealth” that “became the basis for the capitalist economy.” Whites established a “hegemony” that continues to the present day, in which minorities are subjected to “socialization, domestication, and ‘zombification.’”

    Interesting admission.

    So the wealth came as a result of the European/whiteness invasion, and now they want to eliminate the Euro-centredness?

    They can kiss goodbye to all that wealth then, right?

  60. Rex Anger says:

    Acknowledging someone else’s POV is hardly a ‘backdown’.

    You threw your counters anyway, Metalloid Man. You prefaced your snark with In response, I could, threw in a series of religiousnsmears against those nasty Christianists, and finished with But we all know that history is written, or at least heavily edited, by the ‘winners’.

    Cassie of Sydney

    Many thanks for referring to the Mel Gibson directed movie Apocalypto .

    Having never heard of the film I did some searching.

    A truly interesting academic paper by Richard D Hansen
    Relativism, Revisionism, Aboriginalism, and Emic/Etic Truth: The Case Study of Apocalypto
    Some very good references also including Susan Haack kept me busy.

    source: https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-1-4614-1065-2

    Additionally this:
    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – For Farhad Safinia, Mel Gibson’s screenwriter and co-producer on “Apocalypto,” it all began with a love for chase scenes….

    Safinia and Gibson chose the Mayan civilization as their historical point in time for several reasons. They wanted to explore a pre-Colombian, pre-European native culture, and they chose the Mayans over the Aztecs because of their sophistication and swift downfall.

    “The Mayans were far more interesting to us,” Safinia says. “You can choose a civilization that is bloodthirsty, or you can show the Mayan civilization that was so sophisticated with an immense knowledge of medicine, science, archaeology and engineering … but also be able to illuminate the brutal undercurrent and ritual savagery that they practiced. It was a far more interesting world to explore why and what happened to them.”

    Safinia came to the world of moviemaking a little late in life. Of Iranian heritage, he graduated from Cambridge University in England with an economics degree in game theory, an applied mathematical theory practiced by John Nash (the title character played by Russell Crowe in “A Beautiful Mind”). But Safinia’s right brain/left brain intellect also spent a lot of time acting in college, performing as part of the Cambridge Amateurs Dramatics Club, a renowned theater group that launched the careers of such stars as Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz.

    You see Metalloid Man, you chose to overlook the bit where said Marxist activists want children to chant to Aztec gods about empowering ‘warriors’ for ‘social justice,’ and so forth in your quips about appreciating other cultures and perspectives.

    Taking out any opinions or responses to the actual worship business, we will look specifically at the whole issie of Freedom of Religion vs. Freedom from Religion.

    There are various laws, provisions and even Constitutional Amendments here and in the US that prohibit discrimination, but also declare that the public space will not favour, legislate or persecute any one over any other. This is the Principle of Separation of Church and State (Originally championed, believe it or not, by Christians!).

    As such, the merest suggestion of any active or large-scale religious activity (primarily Christian in the West) is aggressively set upon and denounced. Yet the same sort of people who like do the denouncing are now trying to use the State to endorse a system of worship.

    You are either have Freedom FOR all religion in the public square, or Freedom FROM all religion in the public square. Or you have no rule of law whatsoever.

    And any wilful and deliberate attempt to subvert this principle must be resisted if you wish to have any form of civil society (as we know it) survive.

    Do you want murderers and tyrants, Metalloid Man? Because THIS is how you get murderers and tyrants…
