Essential distinctions in polytheism (part 7): Harmonious hierarchy v.s Deceitful equality

egypt-cairo-pyramids-of-giza-and camels-2It is remarkable to notice how modernism, with all its boastful claim to intellectual and moral superiority, resembles monotheism in its brazen hypocrisy and open trickery. The medium for the falsehood and deception is also the same, i.e. language; in both ideologies, there is deliberate confusion and obscurity with terms, rather than distinction and clarity. They always tell you either to interpret something significant in one way, which is according to them the best way, or otherwise to interpret it in whatever way you like, without any direction, as if all interpretations are good. This conversion and subversion, which they create and spread through language, afterwards becomes a real monster (unknowingly to them) that ruins not only their view of the world, but that of others, if not their actions too.

The absurd and hypocritical contradiction we see in the modernists’ and monotheists’ conception and application of the term equality is impossible to be overlooked. On the one hand, they tell you equality is essential and necessary for all, but on the other, they always seek to impose their views on others, as if the notion of equality applies only to them. What is more strange, even among them, equality is a total delusion: Their leaders are very often among the most arrogant and selfish people one can meet with. Consider the famous artists of modernism, like Picasso and Pollock, or the Abrahamic prophets; their desire to recreate and reform not only what people can see, but also how people should think and live (especially their followers), without caring to explain themselves properly or honestly, is indeed despicable. To justify their authority and maintain their followers, they always chose an enemy (usually the common authority) and then proceed to deform it in every way possible, i.e. as an ugly thing, devil, etc. By this means, the disaffected people, who can rarely think enough for themselves, are tricked into thinking this rebel is a champion of theirs, who seeks to raise their dignity.

Populism has always been an essential characteristic within both monotheism and modernism, but it is strange that this truth is often forgotten or dismissed as fiction. All the Abrahamic prophets, the Greek philosophers, the modern artists and philosophers, the ancient tyrants (Gaius Marius, Alexander of Macedon, Julius Caesar), the dictators of the 19th and 20th centuries (Napoleon, Hitler, Mao, etc.) all justified their horrible actions by that word equality in the name of the people. It is hard to believe that this trick still continues to deceive people and ruin their society over and over. But what is society? It is necessary to define this notion, and justify its value, before concluding against the trick described. In general, society may be defined as a place of common good and common interest, where people can achieve security and prosperity by cooperating in their different functions. Yes, it is because people are different from one another, that they inevitably have different functions, a natural truth which can’t be denied: Nobody thinks, acts or is alike. In time, when the institutions of society grow, these different functions lead to social class and hierarchy. To some, these notions of class and hierarchy are unacceptable and signs of oppression, but all historians agree that if it were not for those two terms, the rise of civilized society 5500 years ago would have been impossible. All that we enjoy today is indeed the fruit of hierarchy.

Since people are different by nature and by ability, the reasonable consequence must be differences in wealth, function and power. Inequality implies differences, not injustice; when a hierarchy is firm and in good order, harmony is the result, not harm. This is especially the case with ethnic polytheism, which acknowledges the power of the Gods, the sanctity of the Earth and the necessity of harmony.  All our ancestors, whatever ethnic creed they followed, accepted hierarchy as a natural order of the universe, and attempted to achieve harmony in society. Perhaps they did not always succeed in improving things for all and maintaining satisfactory justice, but they never attacked the notions of hierarchy and classes; it was utter madness to do so, since it was denying obvious reality and embracing an empty dream*.  Monotheism produced the real oppression and disharmony through Abrahamic madmen, atheism produced the madness of Hitler and Mao, and modernism has produced the huge corporations that abuse nature and man. They all sing the same deceptive song about equality, while actually practising the worst inequality.

It was not polytheism that produced Alexander or Caesar, but rather the lack of polytheism: The first of them unjustly called himself a god and demanded to be worshipped, and the second bribed the priesthood (with kind threats) to give good omens of his victory and perpetual dictatorship. If we fall into the trap of imitating the monotheists and modernists in this ridiculous and arrogant habit of questioning everything and rebelling against every hierarchy, in contradiction to our good ancestors (the absolute majority of them), we will bring upon ourselves a double shame.

* I have already shown Plato, when I wrote about philosophy previously (see essential distinctions, part 5), to be mistaken in his views. Indeed, his last book The Republic, written in his old age concerning the ideal society, is absurd and unnatural in many points, which his student Aristotle also noted. The Greek philosophers were unfortunately covert monotheists or atheists, who laid the foundations of modernism.
