The period between the wars, from 1919 to 1939 has been called “the Twenty Year Truce.” In this interval there was a radical shake-up in Europe, as though the European “chess-board” was being re-assembled. Old orders were crumbling and passing away. New ideas and ideologies were emerging. Chief amongst the ideologies were of course the Socialist ones, as witnessed in Russia with the Bolshevik revolution, in Germany with the emergence of Hitler’s regime, and even in Britain, where the Socialist, or Labour Party came into existence and formed a government under Ramsay MacDonald in 1924, and again from 1929 to 1931.
In all these Socialist ideologies there has been an element of Satanic design, inasmuch as they have traded on the miseries of the downtrodden majorities, to bring into force a regime calculated to improve their lot, but in retrospect it has turned out very much like George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”, in other words, all men are equal, but some are more “equal” than others. In Russia many improvements were promised, but the workers who looked for an easing of their lot, found to their dismay that before long all land became state owned, and a new repressive regime rose to prodigious power, far worse than the ills perpetrated by the Czarist regime it destroyed.
To have a heart of sympathy for those in any plight on earth, must surely be a God-given characteristic. But it would seem that Satan, having appreciated this general tendency in mankind, found it to be a useful tool to establish his various reigns of terror. Itis important for those in power to alleviate suffering, but it is also important for it to be done in a lawful and humanitarian manner. If revolutionary methods are advocated, combined with the break-down of law and order, and propaganda campaigns against all authority, then it is wholly Satanic in design.
All the Socialist movements this century have fallen foul of these tendencies. Thrones have toppled, leaders assassinated, authority undermined, until now, in the beginning of a new millennium we find in our land, for example, a total lack of respect for authority in any form in quite the majority of the population. This is verging on anarchy and could at any time break out in civil war. The advocates of Socialism have used emotive rhetoric to convince the electorate of the evils of capitalism, with all its excesses and lack of concern for the lowest classes of society. Fair enough. There have been excesses, insensitivity, and careless unconcern for those less well-off than themselves. But this isnot the point I want to make. The real point is to do with the break down of authority, rather than the establishment of RIGHTEOUS AUTHORITY. The Socialist ideology has arisen from men like Adam Weishaupt, and Moses Hess. As a nation we vigorously condemn all the more lurid forms such as Communism and Naziism, but still allow its less revolutionary sisters to operate in our land, urging the overthrow of law and order via Union pressure. One very obvious example of this was with Arthur Scargill. In their inception, the Miners’ Unions were a good thing to prevent inhumane practices, but out of it arose the more militant, authoritarian, union bosses, who were prepared to hold the country to ransom.
[As a footnote to the foregoing, we now see New Labour, an animal that has evolved out of its previous form, which had lost some of its teeth.]
I believe that one of the greatest of modern evils operating in our land is the breakdown of respect for authority. Anyone these days can use opprobrious language towards anyone in authority, be it Queen, Prime Minister, Archbishop, or any one of a hundred authorities of lesser standing in society. All of my working life I was a teacher, and until 1968, when I went abroad, conditions in the classroom were tolerable, and oftentimes very enjoyable. But when I next taught in an English school, in 1981, I found to my horror that the law of the jungle was operating. It drove me to a nervous breakdown and virtually ended my career in the classroom and laboratory.
