The Aquarian Conspiracy is a book by Marilyn Ferguson. Her “philosophy” is part of the “New Age” movement. That pseudo-religion focuses on the idea that a new paradigm is emerging.
This passage was particularly intriguing 🧐:
"Thanks go to the Frankfurt School-trained propagators of the Comintern and Tavistock Institute-trained agitators."
I will bookmark your article to keep it as a reference 🤔
"Everywhere you turn these days, pagans are afoot, busily hacking away at the Christian and Jewish foundations of American life and replacing them with a cosmology that would have been absolutely coherent to followers of, say, Voltumna, the Etruscan earth god, or to those who worshipped the Celt tribal protector Toutatis."
Wow! Frederick pulled that book out of the moth balls! I remember when it was a big deal in the early 80's. There is considerable evidence that lots of this was coming out of intelligence orgs. Does anyone remember Elizabeth Clare Prophet and her whacked out New Age, doomsday cult, The Church Universal and Triumphant? They garnered more media attention than anything else having to do with the New Age back in the mid 80's to early 90's. Anyway I spent several hours digging into her, her late husband who was there at the foundation back in the 50's, and the Church itself. I looked at genealogy and apparent connections to military intelligence, Christian Science (a known intelligence op), Theosophy, etc. and got a pretty "spooky" feeling about all of it. Strange stories like Elizabeth being sent to Switzerland for her entire Junior year in HS to "study French". Her father allegedly being arrested in the 40's as a " Nazi spy". Some accounts say her family wasn't religious but another saying her mother was a disciple of Alice Bailey. The most suspicious thing was how it was claimed both these people were of modest means, middle class, but there always seemed to be millions of dollars rolling in to their orgs. They were, from the outset, very prominent in the movement all the way back in the 60's and, in of all places, Washington DC. They had acquired enough funding by the early 70's to move their entire organization into very pricey digs in Colorado Springs (a gov. intelligence hot spot) from DC. (the same) By the late 70's 10s of millions was being spent on pricey real estate all over California including Pacific Palisades and Beverly Hills. Later this was all chucked when the whole thing was moved to Montana where they acquired 24,000 acres from Malcolm Forbes bordering on Yellowstone! This is where they dug and outfitted millions of dollars worth of doomsday bunkers. Anyway, quite a saga and smacking of some kind of op for sure. His ancestry was Jewish and very Aristocratic ( ancestors that were "the envy of the Dutch Princes") but they lie about it on Wikipedia. "middle class". Right.
Excellent background on how we ended up where we are. Thank you Frederick.
This is why we get this Doctor 'pulls baby's head off during childbirth while father watches' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12059171/Doctor-pulls-babys-head-childbirth-horrified-father-watches.htm
James Lindsey does a podcast called New Discourses. He recently has been explaining these same ideas. Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, occultism, Theosophy. He sees it in the woke movement, elites, current political movements. His goal is to inform and defeat. It’s interesting how prevalent this topic is becoming. Are we clearly seeing the struggle between good and evil we previously thought of as only a metaphor and not a real existential threat?
Spirituality, individual consciousness, sounds like a good way to make it up as you go. Explains today since this thinking paired up well with Darwinism and Marxism. New values, new morals, new possibilities, new goals. No limitations.
Glad to join here as a new subscriber.
Out of curiosity I was reading one of Blavatsky's books, it might have been the Secret Doctrine, and at the time I thought it was an interesting collection of ideas from around the world. Then I got to the Lucifer part and thought "what the actual hell am I reading?!" Then I remembered that one passage.
"For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions." - 2 Corinthians 11:13–15
Interesting book review and equally interesting detours of thought along the way.
I've known several "new agers" over the years and few if any have been exceptionally happy, healthy or prosperous.
I am often reminded of the eastern philosophy of the yinyang, masculine/feminine, good/evil divide when talking with or about those who embrace the "technology" of crystals, incense and hallucinogens.
It’s damaged many people and families.
