The Millenial Cult Of Global Warming

Politics / Climate Change Sep 22, 2014 - 10:19 AM GMT

By: Andrew_McKillop


What is a Millenial Cult?
Remember the Y2K hysteria in 2000? Or the Maya 13th Baktun of December 2012 after which the world would surely end? They threatened “potted disaster” but in those two cases the political handle was hard to spot, even by seasoned conspiracy theorists. Unconvincing attempts included claims that the 13th Baktun coincided with particularly intense experiments in the US HAARP (high frequency auroral research) program, which would cause complete collapse of all electric power grids, followed of course by the declaration of martial law and the start of the New World Order, which itself is an elite millenial cult – like global warming.

Neither the Y2K or 13th Baktun instant apocalypses generated any commercial spinoff – for example plastic replica silex knives of the type used by Mayan priests or scale model power grid lines to fry with a dose of current in the safety of your home while munching a takeout pizza. But not long after Y2K we had September 11th, 2001 or “9 / 11” which was a genuine millenial apocalyptic cult, with about 3000 human sacrificial victims.

Staying with the Mayans, we can get nearer to a definition of millenial or millenarian cults. Of course Mayans seemed strangely fascinating. They were well ahead of ISIS psychopaths for running mass executions. Their priests used silex knives to slice open the rib cages of hundreds of victims a day, to rip out their still-beating hearts and place them high up the Mayan pyramids. The gods invented by the priesthood elite were numbered in dozens, and were mostly evil, so these gods could only love and approve of mass slaughter - and would also Save the World!

In any millenarian cult, the defeat of logic is paramount. How would mass slaughter save the world? How does “quantitative easing” or the massive and constant printing of chaff money by the central banks Save the Money? It doesn't and it can't, but that is logical so it is haram, as in Boko Haram.

Reality and truth are dangerous, unclean or at very least must be shunned whenever possible.

Millenarianism or the frequent eruption of millenial cults in society is often associated with the study by anthropologists of non-western “primitive” societies, especially South Pacific islander societies but its historical outbreak in western society are very well known.

Long Before the Wilting Polar Bear
Interestingly enough, among the more-degenerate political leaders of the recent past in western society, Mrs Margaret Thatcher was right on the button with the “epic menace of global warming”, by as early as 1989. In her case, after telling Britain's youth they had “No Future” and could crawl away to the gutter, she explained her heartfelt anguish for Antarctic penguins, supposedly threatened by global warming. Even NASA, which “believes in global warming”, is however forced to admit that current satellite surveys show that Antarctica's ice-covered area has in 2014 reached its largest extent since the very start of NASA's surveillance in the early 1970s. 

But why would we be interested in a trifling fact like that? How could it concern us?

The important fact is that millenial cults either have no interest at all in the real world, or deny that it exists, or demand that “conventional reality” be destroyed. It is haram, using Boko Haram talk. By denying and attacking reality – at one and the same time – the magical underpinning of millenial cults is shown. Reality is first denied as existing, but then it is attacked. In Thatcher's case, with her vaunted scientific background of a college chemistry degree, all she had to do was deny reality before attacking Britain's youth who should “get out and clean windows” as part of her magical “Neolib” revolution.

Millenial cults in Europe date back at least 1000 years and the year 1000 AD was a key moment, simply due to the number 1 000 and its magical powers, from which the word “millenial” comes.

Certainly the role of Peter the Hermit “calling” the First Crusade of 1095 long before the Catholic hierarchy, was a millenial cult leading to the death of probably more than 75 000 persons who marched, in winter, across Europe and through modern Turkey to the Holy Lands, to fight Satan. Certainly the religious wars inside Europe and the peasants revolts stretching for more than 250 years in Medieval Europe, were millenarian.

These religious conflicts and peasant revolts were often merged or fuzed into a direct challenge to established Church hierarchies, political authorities and the rich elite. The Schwarmerei riots and low-level civil wars in future Germany, and outside it, so frightened both Protestant and Catholic ideologues that they reaffirmed Saint Augustine's anti-millennialism. One reason was that all religious hierarchies were at that time either the State themselves or close-linked to it. Each of the three main Protestant traditions of the sixteenth century - Lutheran, Calvinist and Anglican - had the support of the state and reacted to the threat of millenarianism “from below”.

Both Luther and Calvin were fearful and suspicious of millennial riot and rebellion. Calvin declared that those who engaged in “calculations based on the Apocalyptic portions of Scripture” were ignorant and malicious, and even Satanic. In the same way today, some moderate Islamic theologists condemn the apocalyptic killing spree of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.
In many cases in Medieval Europe reaction and response by the state led to show trials of millenarians, often followed by their public execution, such as the  Augsburg Confessions and the Westminster Confessions. Also in the Protestant case, the challenge of millenial movements led to the identification of the Papacy with the Antichrist. Canonical doctrine was less-than-subtly altered, for example what became Lutheranism.

Save the Polar Bear
As we know from the rather feeble run-up to the Ban-ki Moon climate conference in New York this week, it is still cool to save polar bears from too much heat. They are threatened by coal-fired power plants thousands of miles away from them, which “spew” carbon dioxide into the atmosphere the same way that Al Gore's Gulfstream jet “spews” jetfuel kerosenes residues into the lower stratosphere. Millenial cult leaders, in the Medieval European case, often personally profited from deluding “the mass” with the hysteria and hypocrisy that they “spewed”.

Mrs Thatcher was almost inevitably an early bombastic proponent of extreme junkscience theories predicting the Heat Death of the Planet, of the same type that presidents Obama and Hollande, and a decreasing number of other learn nothing-forget nothing “muppet leaders” still find time to gurgle about in 2014! Like the neoliberal cult of economic revolution of the 1980s, the elite global warming cult rapidly became millenarian, that is “extra historic” and totally immune to such trifling things as facts and figures. In the space of less than 20 years the global warming doctrine, creed or cult mutated and transformed itself into a fact-free set of beliefs – for example president Obama's chief scientific advisor, John Holdren, could say that extreme cold weather in the USA, in early 2014 “was due to global warming”. Don't forget the Vortex Effect!

We might imagine that if there was extreme hot weather, he could say this is due to global cooling.

The elite global warming cult is rigorously illogical and notably features the desired and magical “return to a stable climate past” - a totally undefined or mystic past which in simple reality has never, ever existed. There was no long idyllic period when climate was “only normal”. As we can imagine, the return to a past which never existed, and is not given any date or range of “best by” dates, is not only completely absurd but is obviously millenial and can only breed massive confusion.

To probably a large extent, due to this confusion and despite global warming being an elite theme or meme, which is “official”, and which is obligatorily and supinely supported by the glove puppet media with “iconic” images of polar bears and coal-fired power plants, neither this cult nor the elite cult of “free flowing markets ensuring prosperity for all” has successfully percolated throughout society. Neither cult has much reach and impact among younger persons in western society of today. It has either been completely rejected, or has had no significant reach in Muslim-dominant societies or in the societies of the giant emerging countries, China and India whose combined population is nearly 5 times that of the European Union – where global warming remains an official cult and elite creed.

Outside the west, this cult is perceived as western millenariaism. It is delusional. It profits a high priesthood of liars and fanatics and has a complete contempt for reality.
