Neither Christendom nor the West exist anymore. The System — the Machine, the Matrix, the Black Iron Prison, or whatever other names you call it — has absorbed both.
Perhaps the only interesting thing about the System is its active undermining of its own operability. Although predictions are difficult, processes are readily discernible, and the process the System has initiated will inevitably lead to its self-destruction. It’s a matter of time — when, not if.
When the System implodes, it will take with it all the institutions it has corrupted and absorbed, including institutionalized (System) Christianity.
The seemingly inevitable death of System Christianity will strike most as the death of Christianity itself, just as the death of the System will strike most as the death of everything that has spiritually and historically comprised the West.
These deaths will occur. Yet, they will only mark the death of the Ahrimanic force that has hijacked, oppressed, and smothered the essence of the West and Christianity. That essence is not Ahriman, and it cannot reemerge at the collective level unless Ahriman collapses.
Yet the essence can emerge at the individual level regardless of whether the System collapses or whether the essence emerges at the collective level, but this requires spiritual, mostly internal, System-distancing at the individual level.
System-distancing entails the deep understanding that Ahriman is everything but a necessary evil. It is simply evil.
Spirit is the only way out of such evil. Spirit resides in the essence. We cannot find the essence if we remain fixated on Ahriman.
