The God who would make us perfect insects: Society
By Michael Moriarty
With Society as the God of Socialists, the renaming of its prophet or Messiah from the self-loathing, anti-Semitic Jew Karl Marx, into one of the reigning jewels of the Italian Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci, the New World Order of the United Nations is determined to fashion a perfect human race out of the fetal tissue of our aborted gestating infants, the licensed use of cloning, and the expansion of adult human experimentation.
"There is no society," said former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, "There are only individuals and their families."
If Thatcher is right, the delusion of a God called Society is far more dangerous to the future of the human race than the "opiates" of Yahweh, Allah, Shiva, Buddha and their array of prophets like Abraham, Moses, Christ, Mohammed and the Dalai Lama.
I live in a socialist federation – Canada. Having fallen behind in my taxes, I'm paying more than half my American pension check to get out from under. The year in which I made this deal with Revenue Canada, I had plenty of work in film and no problems paying my taxes. This past year, however, I did less work. The government garnished half my paycheck in back taxes while I paid out 80 per cent my American pension check to the Canadian welfare state. The Government of Canada has taxed the tax on my salary from three films I made in the past year. They don't call it a tax, though. They call it "back-pay." Therefore it is eligible to be taxed.
What metaphor can apply to this engulfment of my future but a black hole?
"It's only money," my father used to say. I repeat that every day and pray. If Thatcher is correct, some cavalry of Judeo-Christian angels is on its way to free me. Under this welfare system, I'll be given three hots and a cot in some homeless center, and some health care I wouldn't go near, but isn't that about all you get in prison? Wasn't that what the Southern Confederacy gave their slaves, just enough care to keep them alive to do the arduous work?
"Work shall set you free!"
That was the sign over Auschwitz during the Holocaust in which six million Jews were sacrificed in the quest for a perfect Aryan race.
Now with the liberated genius of da Vinci as their new role model, the social science lobbyists accentuate the master artist's designs for weapons of war and his exhuming of corpses from cemeteries to dissect them in the pursuit of the "Divine Proportion" for the human race, which, according to da Vinci's Vitruvian Man is 1.618. Dan Brown, the phenomenally successful author of The Da Vinci Code, states that every beehive has a relation of minority males to majority females of 1.618. If the Judeo-Christian Civilization wants a threatening number to deal with, it is not 666. It is 1.618.
Brown has fixed his eyes on the slide rule in da Vinci's hand and not on the miracle of the hand itself. That genius's paintbrush rarely drew in a straight line except when designing machines of destruction. The natural world hasn't one single straight line in it. The divine aspect that existed within the hand of da Vinci is what's important, and not the straight lines with which he determined the geometry of three-dimensional painting.
With 1.618 in mind when applied to the proportion of sexes in an insect community, another best-selling and gifted writer of equally leftist persuasion, A.S. Byatt, has repeatedly sung the praises of the consummate harmony and perfection of insects, particularly those in the beehive. Byatt states outright that if the human race were like a beehive, the world would be perfect. It would certainly fulfill the paradigm of 1.618; and of course the ruling monarch would not be a king but a queen bee. Drones exceeding the Divine Proportion would be left outside the hive to die. The thing about the insect world is – each member of the hive is genetically programmed to "knows its place."
If one looks at the socialists' progressive taxation as the spiderweb this coterie of perfectionists would wrap the entire human race in, then the picture is perfect – well, a perfect evolution out of a Franz Kafka novel. He wrote Metamorphosis, perhaps in the wake of rising revolutionary tides, and was perhaps imagining the plight of a human being transformed into the very insect a God called Society would make of us.
Think about it. Oh, and keep your eye on 1.618 wherever you spot any sign of it. 1.618 is now far more disturbing than 666.
