Diary Blog, 4 June 2022, with some personal and occultic reminiscence

Imagine if almost all 5-y-o children had such talents. That is what we aim for in the creation of a “super-race”— not political or military power, primarily, but a quantum leap in the overall level of advanced humanity.

On this day a year ago

Saturday quiz

Well, only 5/10 this week, though that was still enough to beat political journalist John Rentoul, who scored only 2/10 (and, as always, I commend his honesty in admitting it).

I did not know the answers to questions 2, 5, 7, 9, and 10.

I recall being shocked, when aged about 22, and when I visited St. Paul’s for the first (and I think only) time, and found it had a revolving door like a busy hotel, and —inside— stalls selling souvenirs etc.

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” [Matthew 21:12-13]

[El Greco, Christ Driving the Money-Changers from the Temple]

Here we are, 2000 years later, and Mammon still infects the house of Spirit…

As far as Boris-idiot is concerned, one can only agree.

These are the human carbuncles who purport to rule over us.

The Ukrainian side has “played a blinder” on propaganda. The Jewish regime in Kiev has managed to convince much of the Western world that Zelensky’s regime is a democratic government, with civil rights, despite the facts that all opposition parties are now banned, all opposition leaders in the country are under arrest and badly-treated, and any criticism of Zelensky or the war is met with arrest or worse.

Even the fact that a Ukrainian government negotiator was shot in the head in Kiev by Zelensky’s security people for being “pro-Russian” or “a Russian agent” has not damaged much the propaganda picture shown on Western television, because that incident was scarcely reported.

Despite the above, the propaganda picture effort is faltering now. More and more incidents or events have been shown up as completely fake: the “Ghost of Kiev” (non-existent), the Snake Island retort (never happened) and, more importantly, the whole narrative that Ukrainian forces are winning this war.

Ukrainian forces are losing at least as many men as the Russian Army, about 100 per day. Ukrainian forces may be (in the east of Ukraine) running out of fuel, ammunition, and food. The whole of Ukraine east of the Dnieper river and south of Kiev may soon be under Russian control.

A personal reminiscence

As noted yesterday, I happened to see the following YouTube video:

[Robert Powell, astrosophist, talking about, inter alia, the rise and fall of cultures and civilizations, and about astronomy, astrology, and astrosophy]

That is someone whom I met about 43 years ago, in or about 1979, at the Goetheanum, in Switzerland.

[Second Goetheanum, Dornach, near Basel, Switzerland https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goetheanum]
[The Goetheanum at dusk]

I was at the time a frequent visitor to the Library of the Anthroposophical Society in Park Road, London (near Regent’s Park). The librarian there, on discovering that I was intending to fly to Basel and to visit the Goetheanum, said that Robert Powell was living there, and he would write to him to the effect that I might be arriving, and perhaps he could show me around.

I was aware of Powell, because he was known by me to be connected to the works of Valentin Tomberg [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg].

Tomberg had settled, after WW2, in the mid-1940s, in the village (now a suburb) of Emmer Green, near Reading, Berkshire.

I myself was born, in 1956, at Reading. Now I discover (only yesterday) that Robert Powell was also born at Reading, at about the time that Tomberg settled in the area, in 1947.

As to my trip to Switzerland, I did go to the Goetheanum, arriving at Dornach [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dornach] late in the day. I checked into the little inn by the railway station and then set off at once to see the famous Goetheanum.

In fact, I had not been able to arrange anything specific by way of meeting Robert Powell.

On approaching the main doors of the Goetheanum (huge, like those at the Lubyanka in Moscow), I saw that the building had closed for the day, but an attendant appeared and, hearing that I had just come from London, offered to show me the building.

My impression? A feeling that it was halfway between a museum (such as the British Museum) and what I supposed an ancient Egyptian temple might have felt like (rather than looked like).

After that tour, I was shown out and, near the doors of the building, out of the near-darkness, a young man appeared and (having never met me, nor seen a photo of me) asked whether I was Ian Millard! This was Robert Powell, someone with a slight air of mystery, but worn lightly.

Powell lived somewhere in the vicinity (I do not believe that I ever saw where), and was apparently friendly with a German girl who also lived locally, whom I met, and who kindly took time to show me a couple of places.

Despite his having things to do, over the next few days, Powell met me several times, and showed me a few of the local sights seen by few: some ruined small mediaeval castles; the small lake where, supposedly, Parsifal first saw the Fisher King, another site by that lake where a small rivulet ran through stone blocks which formed a floor: this was, I heard, the place where Siegmund and Sieglinde lived, and where, in legend, “a river ran through their kitchen“.

Powell also showed me a place in the hills (Dornach is in the foothills of the Jura Mountains) where there was a kind of natural platform, in the stone of the hill itself, where there was a kind of oblong chamber in the rock, about the size of a human being plus about 6 inches all round. There was also a seat cut into the stone by the oblong chamber. This, I was told, was where a priest-initiate of the ancient (Central European) Celtic Mysteries would sit, guarding the pupil of those Mysteries who would be for three days in a comatose state in the oblong chamber, experiencing occult initiation.

The German girl mentioned took me to see a pleasant if slightly eccentric old lady who lived in a house close to the Goetheanum. She was of Russian extraction, I think, and had been there since the time of the building of the present Goetheanum in the 1920s (the first, wooden, one having burned down). In fact, she had herself known, or at least met, Rudolf Steiner, who started it all: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Steiner.

I spent the last few days of my week in the district mostly alone. I had transferred from the railway inn to an almost deserted anthropop guesthouse (this was Autumn-time) to save money, Switzerland being rather expensive. I attended a eurythmy performance at nearby Arlesheim, returned to the Goetheanum for a longer look around, and had a look around the nearby city of Basel —10 miles away—as well.

Interesting to see that Robert Powell is still around. The young man I encountered in Switzerland, and who is now author of many books on spirituality, astrosophy etc is still recognizable at the age of 74 or 75.

Wes Streeting, a non-Jew member of Labour Friends of Israel (I believe that all or almost all of Starmer’s Shadow Cabinet are LFI members). Streeting is a complete puppet. In fact he only became head of the National Union of Students in 2008, aged 25, because the Union of Jewish Students supported his candidature: see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wes_Streeting.

One of the consequences of preventing almost anyone with ideas or independence from being selected as a System party candidate for Parliament is that only mediocrities, puppets, and complete idiots are selected. The pool of MPs is therefore composed largely of persons of those types.

Unwittingly satirical is the outfit, looking at the numbers of blacks who are trying to blag getting into Western Europe as “Ukrainian” “refugees”; Ireland has been stupid enough to allow in a number; maybe the UK as well.

I wonder what Rees-Mogg is thinking, as he stares down at that African woman, whom I presume (?) is some kind of diplomat.

Very strange. Is there a concerted purpose behind this?

Looking back now, it is clear that a major factor in the last two years or so of “panicdemic” was a mass psychological experiment, and on a huge scale across the world, with the intention not only of seeing how far the masses could be pushed, but of conditioning those masses to accept the most ridiculous strictures, such as the facemask nonsense, the “social distancing” nonsense etc. At what point would the masses say “this is just stupid…and I am not doing it!“?

Most never did. They obediently lined up, six feet apart, masks on, in order to buy bread, even when later (in the UK), the “rules” and fake “laws” were adjusted so that those stupid “rules” applied in the supermarket, but not in the pub across the road! Yet still 90%+ of the sheep complied, and even failed to see how ridiculous the whole thing was. Indeed, those who did protest online did so on the basis that the “rules” should apply everywhere, not because they should not have been imposed in the first place.

As Peter Hitchens predicted at the time, the present shambolic UK Government has managed to fairly easily create a propaganda narrative that the various “panicdemic” measures have been successful, and so, thanks to them (and of course the “vaccines”), the public is now free to enjoy the economic wasteland created by those stupid “rules”, “laws”, and “measures” (and the money largesse distributed by Indian “clever boy” Sunak).

The only decent future for Europe is as an alliance of independent ethnostates, loosely allied to or connected with Russia.

(((Barrister))) and LBC radio presenter apparently (but see below) cannot distinguish between “furlong” and “furlough“! Says it all about the state of both the Bar and msm broadcasting in 2022, unless he meant it as a deadpan kind of joke (I think that actually he was just joking; must have been).

Completely out of touch, if (again) he is being serious.

In a sense, the “panicdemic” was not just a conspiracy, but a concatenation of conspiracies.

Interesting. Valentin Tomberg wrote a little about “Isis unveiled by Science”, I seem to recall. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentin_Tomberg.

Incidentally, I just saw, today, a YouTube video interview with someone I met about 43 years ago (at the Goetheanum, near Basel, Switzerland), and who knew someone I knew slightly in London. I think that I shall blog about that tomorrow, though, and will repost the video, which is here:

I have no idea who is that silly woman who says, in that clip, when “Boris”-idiot gets booed, “I certainly didn’t see that coming“. What planet is she living on? Most of the people of the UK now hate the idiotic part-Jew poseur, and the only reason that Labour is not higher in the opinion polls is because most people do not think that Starmer and his motley crew are much (if at all) better, overall.

“Boris” has not been overthrown by his own MPs yet for a like reason: who will replace him? Not because there are no Conservative MPs who would be as good/bad as “Boris”, but because there are no obvious candidates who would be far-and-away better.

The absurdity of it all is that you now see the most ridiculous Conservative Party MPs being suggested, in the msm as well as on social media, as suitable replacements for Johnson, as suitable party leader, and so as suitable Prime Minister.

I am talking about the likes of Liz Truss, Penny Mordaunt, even Nadine Dorries! How low, ethically, intellectually, and culturally, is the Conservative Party willing to go?

Maybe a more traditional figure such as Jeremy Hunt might still pick up the gauntlet.

The British police are no better. As said, this is a problem all across Europe, and maybe beyond. A problem, but also a symptom, a symptom of societies nearer to collapse than most people think.

Stand up, load up, and speak up for Western and white Northern European race and culture!

I heard of the situation in Gothenburg/Goteborg 15 years ago. Migration invasion, followed by breeding of untermenschen. Gangs of young Arabs and Africans (mainly Somalis), terrorizing whole districts of the city.

Sweden needs to wake up, stand up, and load up.

[Gorky Park, Moscow]

It is a long time since I myself last skated, 25 years to be precise (in 1996, at the Olympic skate rink at Medeo, near Almaty, Kazakhstan). I do not think that my skating was ever blessed by elegance, incidentally.

Lewis, once tipped as a potential Labour leader, points out (via another tweeter) that many of the Ocado rank and file are “BAME”, i.e. blacks and browns. He does not (quelle surprise) point out that the cited head of Ocado is a Jew, and “worth” (possessing) about £500 million pounds.

Every. Single. Time.

I know what I would do to many subversive elements, were I in governmental power, but were I to detail that, here and now, I should probably very soon have the toytown police state on my neck. You have to be black (or Jewish) to say “contentious” things in the UK these days…

Oddly enough, looking at those “rapcrap” lyrics, it seems that “Stormzy” is nonetheless some variety of “Christian”! See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stormzy#Personal_life.

Incredibly, looking at Wikipedia, it seems that “Stormzy” has enough money to give away a million pounds a year to various offshoots of the “Black Lives Matter” nonsense, i.e, anti-white causes.

This really is a sick society.

Nothing to do with the “vaccines”, of course, “and no need to mention the War“, as Basil Fawlty used to say.

Note how few were built under Blair and Brown; this proves yet again how little space there is between fake “Labour” and fake “Conservative” parties.

Slowly, with steps forward and back, but always advancing overall, the NWO/ZOG System is controlling and in fact preventing travel and normal life, using the excuse of “the virus” and/or “the new variant(s)”. So much for the “free movement within Europe” of the pro-Remain idiots. There is no free movement within the EU now…

Unless and until the people rise up in sufficient numbers, and/or eliminate the prime puppets of evil, this can only intensify. The peoples of Europe (and some others, eg in Australasia) will be not only locked down but pinned down, like dead butterflies in a museum.

They will be banned from travelling even within their own countries unless they have “virus passports”, “vaccine passports”, and microchips inserted under their skin so that they can be tracked 24/7.

We already see that some people, eg in the UK, are being treated by both System agencies and the courts as “terrorists” merely for having (actually harmless anyway) “banned” political literature, or for having communicated with others of similar views and so belonging to “banned” groups. The non-existent “threat” from Covid-19 and its “variants” ties in with all of that.

The Jewish-Zionist lobby (which, oddly, seems to be fanatically pro-“Covid” restrictions, the facemask nonsense, “vaccination” etc) now hates Maajid Nawaz, having previously lionized him. The (fanatical, activist) Jews are desperately trying to get Nawaz the sack from the LBC radio station.

In view of the above, let’s have a few more of his tweets and retweets:

and here…

The UK police generally are a joke now. We live in a toytown police state, the politically-correct militia of which is obsessed with facemask nonsense, “racism”, “anti-Semitism” etc. As I have blogged in the past, the most alarming thing, arguably, is that the UK police now often do not know the very laws that they purport to be enforcing. Many (until corrected) think that, for example, “anti-Semitism” is a crime in the UK. No. It is not. In fact, several circuit judges and district judges in the various Alison Chabloz hearings and trials have made that point quite expressly.

Went to supermarket in local town.

A superfluity of Range-Rovers and other large SUVs, as well as Porsches, Mercedes, and even the odd Morgan.

Architectural reminiscence

I happened to see this website: https://www.anthroposophie.ch/en/arts-architecture/topics/articles/architecture/buildings-surrounding-the-goetheanum.html

In 1978, I was able to visit the Goetheanum, situated in Switzerland, not very far from Basel.

While I was in the area (one week), I had a few interesting experiences, and saw a few things the average tourist does not. Perhaps I shall blog another time about those aspects of my visit. Today, just a few photographs and notes about the Goetheanum and surrounding buildings.

[The Goetheanum, Switzerland: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goetheanum%5D
[Goetheanum at dusk, as I myself first saw it; it was closed for the night, but I was given an unofficial tour anyway]
[Heating Tower, Goetheanum, built 1914]
[Glass House, Goetheanum, built 1914]

When I visited the Goetheanum, the Glass House, originally a place used to work artistically on glass, housed the Natural Sciences section of the Anthroposophical Society. A remarkably modern-seeming building, considering that it was built in 1914.

Good point. Of course, “democracy” is not easily defined, even assuming that it is (whatever it is) a “good thing”. I have examined these questions a few times on the blog: see, eg, https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/15/has-parliamentary-democracy-as-we-have-known-it-until-now-had-its-day-in-the-uk/

All true, but this is merely more “controlled opposition”.

The post-1945 world order has been falling apart for some time: the fall of socialism after 1989, the rise of China, the migration-invasion by blacks and browns into Europe and other formerly white European lands. As in Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, there are now, in simple terms, three large players: USA (with client-states such as the UK), China (with its clients), and Russia, struggling but still there, still with massive armed forces and very large numbers of ICBMs.

Orwell was in some ways a prophet, but (having seen Stalinism crush almost everything before it in the 1930s and 1940s) could not imagine that socialism (Stalinism and all other forms of old-style socialism) would just disappear, as it —in effect— has done.

Our present world is not pure Nineteen Eighty-Four but only partly-so; there are elements of Brave New World as well, and other nuances. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brave_New_World; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Eighty-Four

Germany in 1914 and 1939 could not devastate the UK with nuclear weapons; China might be able to do that, though its present strategy seems to be simply to flood Europe with all sorts of Chinese immigrants, thus fulfilling the maxim of Sun Tzu: “to win without war is the supreme excellence“…[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Tzu; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_War].

At any rate, the UK has much to lose and nothing to gain by —once again— doing what the USA’s ruling circles want the UK to do. Much of what China does is appalling, but the UK is not in a position where it can challenge China, realistically.

People should start to resist seriously, and fight against the brainwashing of their children. Some imagine that homeschooling is something “not allowed”. In fact, that is not so: see https://www.gov.uk/home-education; https://www.gov.uk/home-schooling-information-council.
