Apocalypse Now.

( “The Universe is in equilibrium; therefore He that is without it, though his force be but a feather, can overturn the Universe.” Aleister Crowley

Most people associate apocalypse with destruction.  But both the Greek and Latin roots for the word mean revelation.  And the novel coronavirus came from outside our universe of known pathogens, not so much to turn the world upside down, as revealing the faults, fissures and fractures in our society.

Herd Immunity

We know that our government knew about the contagiousness of the coronavirus and the lethality of the disease it caused: COVID-19.  We knew it was airborne and that it could be spread by people who were either pre-symptomatic or even asymptomatic.  We knew that absent a vaccine, the most efficacious way to stop the spread was to have people don personal protective equipment (masks and gloves).  And yet, the federal government, at the highest levels, chose to downplay what would become the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer, in our country in just a matter of months.


We wondered why black and brown people seemed more susceptible to the virus, while it was obvious the cause was their repeated exposure to it.  We called them “essential workers.”  They were then sacrificed on the altar of commerce allowing others to stay home, their lives and livelihoods protected.

Now, a group of “scientists” have issued “The Great Barrington Declaration” proposing herd immunity, which has been championed by Dr. Scott Atlas, the latest crackpot to join this administration.  Their theory is that since younger people, and those without “co-morbidities” (diabetes, obesity etc.), are less likely to get seriously ill from contracting COVID, we should all resume normal activities and let the infection run its course.  Or, make all of us sacrificial lambs so that the rich can continue to get richer.

Wall Street vs Main Street

From March through the fall we have seen millions of jobs lost, many never to return.  Yet the stock market, led by big-tech companies and big-box stores, has continued to climb.  The top fifty families increased their riches and now control more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans combined.  An additional eight million people have fallen into poverty and, despite gaining ten million jobs, the economy is still eleven million jobs shy of where the country was at the beginning of the pandemic.

It should not have come as a revelation that in our present-day society, money is more important than people.  The health of the economy is measured by the height of the Dow Jones Industrial Average and not by the length of food and unemployment lines.  The closure of gyms and bars made a group of men so angry they hatched a plot to kidnap the sitting Governors in two States who they planned to “try” for these offenses.  No such anger, however, on behalf of the millions facing eviction because their places of work are shut down or for the kids falling behind because they can’t participate in “distance learning.”

Land of the free

While some politicians and pundits decry “cancel culture” and “wokeness”, these loudest proponents of law and order remain silent about what the FBI and Department of Homeland Security named the greatest domestic terror threat in the country: white supremacists, or as I prefer to call them, neo-confederates (neo-cons for short).  They so fear their loss of white privilege, they are talking up another civil war.  Their apologists in congress have begun to speak of a “bloodbath” at the polls when referring to a Biden victory.  A curious analogy for a supposed “peaceful transfer of power.”

It is interesting to note that in her book “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents”, Isabell Wilkerson points out that it will be the year 2111 before black people will have been free in the United States as long as they were enslaved here.  If anyone should be upset about how things are…

The big reveal

Perhaps the big reveal of 2020 is how gullible a large segment of the American population is.  What we now call “conspiracy theories” in earlier times were called superstitions: beliefs or practices due to ignorance.  The same type of people who believed in witches in Salem, Massachusetts now believe in QAnon: an anonymous official fighting a Satan-worshipping group of cannibal pedophiles in charge of the government.  Our culture hasn’t come that far after all.

According to the Chinese calendar, 2020 begins a new sixty year cycle.  In that time, what remains of the old order can be torn down and replaced with a brighter, more inclusive future.  Ushering in an epoch of Peace, Prosperity and Equality.  Our PPE against the old viruses of hatred, poverty and racism.  Ultimately, that may be COVID’s apocalyptic purpose and the result of its revelations.

One Response to “Apocalypse Now.”
  1. Pelvo White, Jr. says:

    Why do you quote Aleister Crowley who was called \\\\\\\” the wickedest man in the world ? \\\\\\\”Aleister Crowley was an English occultist, ceremonial magician, poet, painter, novelist, and mountaineer. He founded the religion of Thelema, identifying himself as the prophet entrusted with guiding humanity into the Æon of Horus in the early 20th century.\\\\\\\”

    \\\\\\\”Born to a wealthy family in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, Crowley rejected his parents\\\\\\\’ fundamentalist Christian Plymouth Brethren faith to pursue an interest in Western esotericism. He was educated at Trinity College at the University of Cambridge, where he focused his attentions on mountaineering and poetry, resulting in several publications. Some biographers allege that here he was recruited into a British intelligence agency, further suggesting that he remained a spy throughout his life. In 1898 he joined the esoteric Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, where he was trained in ceremonial magic by Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers and Allan Bennett. Moving to Boleskine House by Loch Ness in Scotland, he went mountaineering in Mexico with Oscar Eckenstein, before studying Hindu and Buddhist practices in India. He married Rose Edith Kelly and in 1904 they honeymooned in Cairo, Egypt, where Crowley claimed to have been contacted by a supernatural entity named Aiwass, who provided him with The Book of the Law, a sacred text that served as the basis for Thelema. Announcing the start of the Æon of Horus, The Book declared that its followers should \\\\\\\”Do what thou wilt\\\\\\\” and seek to align themselves with their True Will through the practice of magick.\\\\\\\”

    \\\\\\\”After an unsuccessful attempt to climb Kanchenjunga and a visit to India and China, Crowley returned to Britain, where he attracted attention as a prolific author of poetry, novels, and occult literature. In 1907, he and George Cecil Jones co-founded an esoteric order, the A?A?, through which they propagated Thelema. After spending time in Algeria, in 1912 he was initiated into another esoteric order, the German-based Ordo Templi Orientis(O.T.O.), rising to become the leader of it.\\\\\\\”The COVID-19 virus infection has come to us as a result of good warring with evil at the nanotechnological level not the majic of contemporary nihilist like Crowley and President Donald Trump who believe that the world is what we make it chiefly by way of majic. Reality is dovetailed in such a way as to appear as one smooth, flowing entity. Science does not know how to fit all of the pieces together.Mixing the genetics and substances of plants,animals,mankind and presenting these formulas as vaccines and cures has made a mess that is difficult to clean up.If science doesn\\\\\\\’t learn to align itself with contemporary nature, we may have to wear masks and gloves for a very long time while satisfying our collective egoes with white supremacy majic. The only good light at the end of the COVID-19 infection tunnel is that Africans and African Americans are the original man and woman by nature not mankind and womankind.It is our genetics and our type O and descendant blood types that is our salvation not magic.WE SHOULD NOT ADOPT A NIHILISTIC WORLD VIEW WHICH ASSUMES THE BELIEF THAT THE WORLD IS WHAT WE MAKE IT AND NOTHING ELSE !!!
