The Haunted Heaven: Chapter Twenty Two: Entre Act

By Michael Moriarty
web posted November 7, 2011

Progressive enlightenment?

For me it has proven to be a return to the jungle, but with a more sophisticated set of euphemisms for the "enlightened despots" to hide behind. One of which was occasionally Leonard Bernstein.

Of course and unless my music for classical musicians and symphony orchestras strike a profoundly resonant chord in a few of the "enlightened despots" in this Progressive world, all of my verbal efforts here will be for nothing but my own bottomless bliss on Earth!

Not a bad "plight" to be in.

My music must succeed where my words are destined to fail … temporarily.

"Unless you become like little children, you shall not see heaven … " something like that.

One only escapes the Devil's madness through Christ.

Through Christ, all is not only forgiven but we begin to see into the very heart of God.

I've just begun reading about François-Noël Babeuf's apologia for the French Revolution. A tract that says the Revolution, did not go far enough!

Babeuf adored Robespierre! The monarchy was, of course, the symbolic head of the monster, la tete de la bête! In addition, the heart of the disease was the bourgeois horde spawned by a Catholic ruling class.

Where, in God's name, could this 18th Century, French monster be coming from?!!

Yet, when I ponder Babeuf's passions, he becomes the Ultimate of Twentieth Century Progressive – read Marxist – dialectics.

Basically, the Third Millennium World is now the war between Judeo-Christianity and the Progressively Marxist Jungle, in which the Jihadist terror is used as a weapon to drive Americans, like cattle, into the New World Order holding pen.

The dividing line, as I have often said, is indisputably The Golden Rule. Since the Roe v Wade decision has implacably destroyed The Golden Rule in America, the Marxist Jungle has won.

Big fish, little fish, all the way to and upon the alters of every Judeo-Christian temple, except those of the Catholic Church which has tenaciously held to the sacredness of human life.

"The biggest fish" for me is obviously Jesus Christ.

How He can devour you  … any of you … with love?!

See my film Hitler Meets Christ.

It just occurred to me that I must thank both Christopher Hitchens and Bill Maher for their own brand of "enlightened despotism" as atheists. I have obviously caught the infection as a now "enlightened despot" of Christian faith.

A down-the-nose perspective is almost de rigeur, as both sides of this ideological war gaze down upon the Grand Canyon that divides us.

I must remember to keep my mouth closed when pondering the coming battles.

Michael Moriarty in HolocaustWhy?

I was advised, during the filming of Holocaust in Vienna, to keep my jaw in a closed position since my ordinarily slack-jawed boyishness made me look too vulnerable.

Likewise, debating atheists … with a smile, of course, always with an inner glimmer … would best be done with a closed mouth … lest the atheist's conjuring and its creations fly into that opening, down my throat and into my heart.

Not possible?

The "upper half" or "elitists" of the American population are now pregnant with evil. Its addiction to and dependence upon the Obama Nation is suicidal.

With one's mouth closed, let the Truth build up within oneself and then, yes, let it erupt in written cannonballs! ESR
