Democracy in peril

“USA. UK. Venezuela. I rest my case. Democracy doesn’t work.” -a Disciple of the BL.

“Well done, my son. Very well done, indeed!” -a Master of the BL

Two Lodges are fighting. The outcome of the warfare will determine if humanity will be enslaved by material self-interest or liberated by a spiritual vision of service for the Common Good.

Malagant: What I offer you is freedom; freedom from Arthur’s tyrannical dream; freedom from Arthur’s tyrannical law; freedom from Arthur’s tyrannical God.


King Arthur: “In serving each other, we become free.” That is the very heart of Camelot.

Do not be confused by their names. What appears to be white is black. Black, donning white, disguises its true color.

White is transparent and, thus, is rendered dark. The spiritual darkness of the midnight sky makes the light of the stars visible.

Do not be confused by their creeds, either. One promises the utopia of materialism in exchange of human freedom. The other offers the liberating discipline of the spirit in exchange of the sacrifice of material self-interest.

The mission of the disciples of the BL is to corrupt all ideologies. “Corrupt liberal democracy with self-interest,” a phalanx is directed as it’s deployed for battle. “Corrupt social democracy with dictatorship,” another one is directed, as they converge in the battlefront to strangle the adversary.

“Resist evil,” the disciples of the WL are summoned. “We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”

The battle is fierce; exhaustion closes in. At the darkest hour, a chant is heard:

LITANY (of the Feast of Union)

I. There is no more any parting of the ways.

II. All the different paths are become but the one path.

III. I am but a part.

IV. I am but one stone in the Great Temple.

V. I am a soldier in the army, and from the one who is next me I cannot swerve by ever so small a fraction; for if I did, march of the whole army would be disordered. I remain, therefore, immovably associated with my fellow soldiers.

VI. I know that I take upon myself the responsibility of the whole when I pass consciously into union with it.

VII. I am ready, without complaint, to be cast down from the place in which I stand, should I swerve or flinch under any trial falling on those next me; for I know that my strength can never be exhausted, since my comrades also stand unswervingly by my side; and while united we can not fall.

And then, they remembered their sacred Pledge at the Feast of Love,


I. Love is the only King; The only Ruler; The only Creator.

II. Hate and Satan one; rebel, anarchist, destroyer.

III. Love’s action is what men call charity.

IV. The action of hatred is known as malice.

V. Love has only one punishment for the sinner,and that is forgiveness.

VI. To live according to the law of love is a hundred thousand times harder than to live according to the law of hatred; to this great effort I pledge myself. To live according to the law of love means the acceptance of every evil as a good. By that acceptance, if it is done in the spirit of love, the evil becomes good. It is to the conversion of evil into good in our natures, in the natures of others, and in the affairs of life, that we devote ourselves. Henceforth we do not avoid evil, we love it and transform it. By loving it we make ourselves a part of the creative principle which is love.

VII. To this great effort the disciples pledge themselves during the Feast of Love, and bind themselves together to unite in it. It cannot be done alone.

To the Glory of the One!



1. Stand aside in the coming battle, and though thou fightest be not thou the warrior.
2. Look for the Warrior and let him fight in thee.
3. Take his orders for battle and obey them.
4. Obey him not as though he were a general, but as though he were thyself, and his spoken words were the utterance of thy secret desires; for he is thyself, yet infinitely wiser and stronger than thyself. Look for him, else in the fever and hurry of the fight thou mayest pass him; and he will not know thee unless thou knowest him. If thy cry reach his listening ear then will he fight in thee and fill the dull void within. And if this is so, then canst thou go through the fight cool and unwearied, standing aside and letting him battle for thee. Then it will be impossible for thee to strike one blow amiss. But if thou look not for him, if thou pass him by, then there is no safeguard for thee. Thy brain will reel, thy heart grow uncertain, and in the dust of the battlefield thy sight and senses will fail, and thou wilt not know thy friends from thy enemies. He is thyself, yet thou art but finite and liable to error. He is eternal and is sure. He is eternal truth. When once he has entered thee and become thy Warrior, he will never utterly desert thee, and at the day of the great peace he will become one with thee.
5. Listen to the song of life.





The Presumption of Innocence

Three thoughts come to mind when I learn about someone falsely declared innocent of a crime in our legal system. First, the legal system is biased toward the presumption of innocence.[1]  In reaction to past abuses of the monarchical rule of law, modern civilized societies prefer, on average, to  legally declare “innocent” some truly guilty individuals (false negative) in exchange of not erring the verdict on truly innocent individuals (true positive).  I’ve addressed the applicable rules of “sensitivity and specificity,” as practiced in screening and diagnosing diseases, in another post (Spiritual Discernment).

Second, according to Master DK, the legal profession is in need of reorientation “for the purpose of world usefulness.”[2] He mentions this in the context of legislation for children, but it could be argued that the current corruption of the legal system requires a reorientation toward the TRUTH. Children must be educated to honor the truth in everything, including their own behavior. It is simply ethically wrong to claim innocence about a wrongdoing that you actually did just because you have the legal right to claim innocence until proven otherwise. Children must be taught that it is their civic duty to honor the truth of the facts, even if self-incriminatory.

Third, in the “near” future (as measured in the time frame of the spiritual Hierarchy), people won’t be able to claim innocence when they are actually guilty.  We are told,”the growth of telepathic registration and of the psychic powers such as clairvoyance and clairaudience will eventually tend to strip humanity of the privacy in which to sin”.[3] This development will revolutionize the practice of law (and medicine, which is the context of Master DK’s prophecy).

So, when I hear that the unfit-for-office but de jure president of the minority who elected him (in the irregular 2016 presidential election in the USA) has been declared innocent of obstruction of justice (a “high crime and misdemeanor”) by his conflicted Cabinet appointee, and that the special Counsel in charge of investigating the facts (and we still need to learn ALL the factual evidence discovered by the Counsel), in strict adherence to the rules of the legal system, could not find legally prosecutable evidence to charge him of colluding with a foreign power to defeat his opponent, while all public facts bear evidence to the contrary, I’m reminded of the need to reorient our legal system to honor the truth, and the responsibility of any wrongdoer to acknowledge his or her misdeed as a civic duty.

For democracy to work as intended, it must be freed from the corruption of self-interest, as in legally permissible lying. For democracy to work as needed for the externalization of the spiritual Hierarchy, the legal system needs to be reoriented toward a culture of truth, regardless of any technicality about the legal rules of evidence.

The war against the truth must end. The truth will prevail. The truth will set us free.



[1] The presumption of innocence is the legal principle that one is considered innocent unless proven guilty. It was traditionally expressed by the Latin maxim ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat (“the burden of proof is on the one who declares, not on one who denies”).

In many states, presumption of innocence is a legal right of the accused in a criminal trial, and it is an international human right under the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 11. Under the presumption of innocence, the legal burden of proof is thus on the prosecution, which must collect and present compelling evidence to the trier of fact. The trier of fact (a judge or a jury) is thus restrained and ordered by law to consider only actual evidence and testimony presented in court. The prosecution must, in most cases prove that the accused is guilty beyond reasonable doubt. If reasonable doubt remains, the accused must be acquitted.

[2] A certain relationship or configuration of stars—of which one is the star Regulus, in Leo—will bring about a situation wherein the re-orientation of the attitude of the legal profession will take place; its functions and duties will be centralised for the purpose of world usefulness, and in this process legislation for children will assume great importance and be the motivating power. This legal step will be primarily advocated by Russia and endorsed by the United States of America. Before 2035 A.D. such legislation will be universal in its sphere of influence and control. –Esoteric Astrology by AAB-DK (p. 238)

[3] Another reason which will bring about the cessation of those practises and modes of living and desiring which account for these diseases is one little recognised as yet; it was referred to by the Christ when He spoke of the time when nothing secret would remain hidden and when all secrets would be shouted aloud from the housetops. The growth of telepathic registration and of the psychic powers such as clairvoyance and clairaudience will eventually tend to strip humanity of the privacy in which to sin. The powers whereby the Masters and the higher initiates can ascertain the psychic state and physical condition of humanity, its quality and consciousness, are already beginning to show [Page 237] themselves in advanced humanity. People will sin, commit evil deeds and satisfy inordinate desire, but they will be known to their fellowmen and nothing that they do will be carried out in secret. Some one or some group will be aware of the tendencies in the life of a man, and even of the incidents in which he satisfies some demand of his lower nature, and the fact of this possibility will act as a great deterrent—a far greater deterrent than you can imagine. Man is indeed his brother’s keeper, and the keeping will take the form of knowledge and of “boycott and sanctions”—as it is called today in reference to the penalising of nations. I would have you ponder on these two modes of treating wrong doing. They will be practically automatically applied as a matter of good taste, right feeling and helpful intention by individuals and groups to other individuals and groups, and in this way crime and the tendency to evil doing will gradually be stamped out. It will be realised that all crime is founded upon some form of disease, or upon a glandular lack or overstimulation, based in turn upon the development or the underdevelopment of some one or other of the centres. An enlightened public opinion—informed as to man’s constitution and aware of the great Law of Cause and Effect—will deal with the criminal through medical means, right environmental conditions, and the penalties of boycott and sanctions. I have no time to enlarge upon these matters, but these suggestions will give you food for thought. -Esoteric Healing by AAB-DK



How to Understand the End of the Mueller Investigation (Hint: You Can’t Yet)

By Benjamin Wittes

Saturday, March 23, 2019, 7:46 PM

As a general matter, declinations fall into three broad categories: factual declinations, legal declinations, and prudential declinations. These overlap to some degree, and the distinctions here are thus somewhat artificial—though I hope still useful. A declination for factual reasons could be based on a finding of actual innocence—as discussed above—or a finding that the evidence, though compelling, is not adequate for prosecution. How much of a vindication or how politically damaging such a declination is depends entirely on the factual findings, about which we know nothing.

A declination for legal reasons is also preponderantly likely here, irrespective of the facts, at least as regards Trump himself. Indeed, we always knew that the investigation would not result in Trump’s indictment while he remained in office; that was never in doubt. For all the feverish discussion of the question of whether a president can or cannot be indicted, the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel has a longstanding opinion on the matter that binds Mueller. There was never any chance that Mueller would defy this opinion. And there was thus never any chance either that Mueller would indict Trump while he remained in office. The result is that at least as regards the president himself, we cannot presume—as we normally would presume—that the investigation’s end means that the evidence is insufficient to bring charges. It might well mean that, and nobody should be surprised if it does. But it needn’t mean that.

There are other possibilities too. What if Mueller developed compelling evidence of presidential misconduct but that evidence does not map cleanly onto known criminal statutes? This could be the case on the collusion prong of the investigation, because knowingly and gleefully benefiting from a foreign power’s theft and disclosure of a political opponent’s emails isn’t, without more, a crime. And it could also be the case with respect to the obstruction component of the investigation, because the president has plausible arguments with respect to many of his obstructive acts that they are within his Article II powers.

There are also prudential factors that can lead to declinations—for example, the unwillingness to declassify material to bring a case. I have no reason to believe such factors are at work here. My point is simply that to say that Mueller is not recommending further charges does not tell you all that much unless you know why he’s not recommending further charges. Yes, it is possible that Mueller has concluded that the president is innocent, that there was “NO COLLUSION” and that there’s nothing to see here and we should all move on. But it’s also possible that he has concluded that the president is guilty as sin but he can’t prove this without outing a particular intelligence channel that NSA senior leadership would lie down in traffic to prevent him from discussing in court—and that even if he could blow that capability, the president can’t be indicted anyway and would have a good argument that his conduct was lawful. These scenarios are both consistent with Friday’s news. 

The Crisis of American Conscience

Morality and Michael Cohen

By David Brooks

Normal people have moral sentiments. Normal people are repulsed when the president of their own nation lies, cheats, practices bigotry, allegedly pays off porn star mistresses.

Were Republican House members enthusiastic or morose as they decided to turn off their own moral circuits, when they decided to be monumentally unconcerned by the fact that their leader may be a moral cretin?

Do they think that having anesthetized their moral sense in this case they will simply turn it on again down the road? Having turned off their soul at work, do they think they will be able to turn it on again when they go home to the spouse and kids?

This is how moral corrosion happens. Supporting Trump requires daily acts of moral distancing, a process that means that after a few months you are tolerant of any corruption. You are morally numb to everything.

In “East of Eden,” John Steinbeck writes: “Humans are caught — in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too — in a net of good and evil. I think this is the only story we have and that it occurs on all levels of feeling and intelligence. Virtue and vice were warp and woof of our first consciousness, and they will be the fabric of our last. … A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard clean questions: was it good or was it evil? Have I done well — or ill.”

David, your outrage is understandable, even if its proximal cause isn’t and cannot be fully understood. But saying that excusing the behavior and subterfuge that is the hallmark of leadership these day is not normal isn’t quite accurate. Normal is a statistical term. And society grades on a curve. Normal ain’t what it used to be. Normal people are used to that. It’s sad, really.

@JustaHuman You are assuming a unimodal statistical distribution. But there are at least two frequency distributions mixed. A bimodal curve is not normal, I agree.

The normal curve for good people remains as is, confounded by its mixture with the normal curve for bad people. At the end it’s a simple binary choice, good or evil, as Mr. Brooks correctly states.
