|SPIRITUAL VIEW OF LIFE
Thus many of the practical expressions of Fascism such as party
organization, system of education, and discipline can only be understood when
considered in relation to its
general attitude toward life.
A spiritual attitude.
Fascism sees in the world not only those superficial, material aspects
in which man appears as an individual,
standing by himself,
to natural law, which instinctively urges him toward a life of selfish
momentary pleasure; it sees not only the individual but the nation and the
Individuals and generations bound together by
a moral law, with common
traditions and a mission
which suppressing the instinct for life
closed in a brief circle of
pleasure, builds up a higher
life, founded on
duty, a life free from
limitations in which the individual, by
the renunciation of self-interest,
by death itself, can achieve that
DOCTRINE OF FASCISM, BENITO MUSSOLINI (1932)
|"This does not seem
credible on first thought, but it is nevertheless true that there are only nine
who maintain the dictator, five or six who keep the country in bondage to him.
Nine have always had access
to his ear, and have either gone to him of their own accord, or else have
been summoned, to be accomplices in cruelties, companions in pleasures, panders
to his lusts, and sharers in his plunders.
nine manage the dictator so
successfully that he comes to be held accountable not only for his own
misdeeds but even for theirs.
The nine have nine hundred who profit
under them, and with the nine hundred they do what they need to accomplished
for their tyrant.
The nine hundred maintain under them
nine thousand, whom they
promote in rank, upon whom they confer the
government of provinces or the
direction of finances, in order that they may serve as
instruments of avarice and
cruelty, executing orders at
the proper time and working havoc that they could
not except under the shadow of the nine hundred, nor be
exempt from law and punishment except
through their influence." - Étienne de La
Discourse of Voluntary Servitude,
October 29, 1922 At age 39, Benito Mussolini became the
youngest prime minister in Italian history.
King Victor Emmanuel III,
at the behest of aristocracy - a group of industrialists, capitialists and
agrarians - accepted Benito Mussolini's fascism over the
assumed greater evils of a communist

Benito Mussolini's fascist State,
a marriage of
entrenced aristocracy and rising industrial capitialist
power, would provide a model
for Adolf Hitler economic and political policies.
fascism evolved into a political and economic system that combined
anti-liberalism into a State culture designed
to bind all classes
together under corporatism.

This web site is not a commercial web site and

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
