"It is the beautiful task of Advent to awaken in all of us memories of goodness and thus to open doors of hope."

In my last blog post I announced that I would be suspending my blogging activity during Advent. In retrospect, I would like to refine this somewhat. I will continue to refrain from writing substantial posts during Advent - at the same time, I would like to fill this period of self-imposed silence with the sights and sounds of Advent. With this in mind, I can think of no better place to start than Veni, Veni, Emmanuel.
I am suspending my blogging activity during Advent this year. I shall return to these pages on Christmas Eve.
Oddly enough, I happened to be thinking about how merchandisers might incorporate the birdemic into their annual "cashing in on Christmas" campaign this year when I happened to come across this little story from Hungary that has been picked up by Reuters and, consequently, spread around the globe.
The Hungarian confectioner who created the masked monstrosities below claims he did it as a light-hearted joke to raise people's spirits. Needless to say, the masked Santas have become immensely popular, to the point that the confectioner can barely keep up with orders.
Brace yourselves for the masked Nativity scenes! They're coming . . .
Back in March I wrote a post about the need for system distancing, which I outlined as follows:
Pundits and laymen the world over are stressing the necessity of social distancing, but in my humble opinion the only distancing that truly matters in this place and time is System distancing.
System distancing involves measures taken to reduce or stop the spread of the evil System within one's own individual being and the hope that such action might help to reduce or stop the spread of the evil System in the greater world.
The extent to which people will be able to distance themselves from the System will depend on individual circumstances, and individual outcomes will inevitably vary; nevertheless, I believe the effort must be made.
The most significant step any individual can take in this time and place is to sincerely acknowledge, once and for all, that the System, together with Establishment that runs it, is evil - meaning it is anti-God, anti-spiritual, anti-Truth, anti-Beauty, and anti-Goodness.
This simple acknowledgment doesn't seem like much, but it is incredibly significant. At its very core, it is the choice of good over evil; virtue over sin; truth over lies; courage over fear; reality over unreality; salvation over damnation; love over hate; and hope over despair.
Look at this way: The more we distance ourselves from the System, the closer we draw to God and Creation. Thus, this movement away is simultaneously a movement toward.
The Establishment has imposed social-distancing upon almost all of us; let's use the time wisely to distance ourselves from the Establishment and its System and close the distance between ourselves and God.
In the eight months that have passed since I wrote that post, System distancing has evolved into what I would term a 'spiritual imperative'.
As mentioned above, the first and most crucial step is to acknowledge the System as evil – not merely corrupted or slightly debased, but evil – evil in motivation and evil in design.
Part of this acknowledgment involves the understanding that the evil in the System is, fittingly enough, systematic.
More specifically, that the evil present in the System is not the result of unfortunate but inevitable glitches, flaws, defects, screw-ups, missteps, mismanagements, or malfunctions occurring in an arrangement that is otherwise fundamentally “good”, but the realization that the evil in the System is intentional, planned, orderly, organized, routine, efficient, precise, methodical, all-encompassing, and businesslike.
This acknowledgment does not dispute the existence of what I would term “strains of good” within the System, either in the form of individuals or some small associations of individuals. Instead, it acknowledges that these "strains of good" are inherently incapable of reforming the System in much the same manner fish are inherently incapable of swimming across the Sahara Desert.
The System has become incredibly efficient at identifying these strains of good as pathogens - pathogens against which it has thoroughly immunized itself. Put another way, the System has become “good proof”.
Any attempt to utilize any part of the System to reform, rejuvenate, or re-align the System as a whole is not only futile, but counterproductive. Rather than bring reform and rejuvenation, attempts to use the System for good are quickly absorbed, inverted, and used for evil by the System itself.
Thus, System distancing involves the comprehension that any faith or belief in the System as a principal force for Good is not only false, but enslaving.
The choice to spiritually distance yourself from the System is literally the choice between freedom and slavery.
Note added: System distancing will inevitably involve a great deal of repentance, which only becomes possible once one stops believing in the System as a principal force for good.
Contacts with God and communion with Him are possible, and dramatic struggle is possible. This contact is the communion and conflict of personalities between which there is neither determination nor causality nor domination nor subjugation. The only true religious myth is contained not in the fact that God is master and aspires to domination, but in the fact that God yearns for His other, for responsive love and awaits the creative answer of man.
- Nikolai Berdyaev, Slavery and Freedom
Like Pavlovian dogs, we have been conditioned to believe that the only place the New World Order or totalitarian world government exists is in the unseemly realm of conspiracy theory. The mere mention of a cabal colluding to rule the world is enough to get most modern people's eyes rolling in exasperation. Consequently, it is hardly surprising that most contemporary people probably regard The Great Reset as little more than a recycled globalist conspiracy theory promulgated by the same fringe factors that drone on about Freemasons, aliens, and the Rothschild banking family.
I am no expert when it comes to secret societies, extraterrestrial life, and financial dynasties, but I have encountered a great deal of information attesting to the reality of these so-called conspiracy theories. Conversely, I have also engaged with a great deal of information debunking the reality of said conspiracies. The nearly equal mix of verifiable information and unverifiable misinformation muddies the waters of many conspiracy theories, rendering their claims controvertible. The uber-secrecy supposedly underpinning most theories also doesn't help to make them very forceful. This - combined with the contemporary penchant to wield the term conspiracy theory as a pejorative - has convinced modern people to callously dismiss practically all non-official narratives and explanations they come across. Though understandable and, at times, justifiable, this dismissive mindset has succeeded in persuading modern people to reject The Great Reset as just another conspiracy theory when it clearly is anything but.
Put plainly, The Great Reset is not a conspiracy theory, but a bona fide agenda. True, the vast bulk of it consists of the same warmed over "to-do" list the global elite having been pushing for decades - climate change, environmentalism, anti-racism, human rights, equality, etc. - but the impetus for the sudden and immediate implementation of a global authoritarian technocracy has never been as blatant as it is now. This impetus is the birdemic crisis, which the global elite have used to pull of the greatest totalitarian coup the world "never" saw. The purpose of the coup was the implementation of The Great Reset Agenda, which they have broadcast and continue to broadcast publicly to anyone who will listen.
Don't believe me? Lend your ears to a recent clip featuring Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum and he'll tell you a little about it, all without the need for secret Masonic handshakes.
Note added: Schwab concentrates exclusively on material concerns, but don't be fooled. The force behind this agenda is spiritual - or more accurately, Satanic.
