The Classical American Economic System Vs. The Original British Free Trade System ·

Henry C. Carey (1793-1879), economist

Below are excerpts from American System economist Henry C. Carey’s book, The Harmony of Interests, written in 1851, in which he elaborates the difference between the American System and the British System. Henry Carey, the son of Mathew Carey, who had begun his career as an agent of Benjamin Franklin in Ireland during America’s revolution against the British, became the leading economist within Abraham Lincoln’s new Republican Party and the intellectual author of Lincoln’s program to save the Union and defeat the British-backed civil war. The “American System” embodied the principles of physical economy and credit founded by Alexander Hamilton, the first Treasury Secretary of the United States.

“Two systems are before the world; the one looks to increasing the proportion of persons and of capital engaged in trade and transportation, and therefore to diminishing the proportion engaged in producing commodities with which to trade, with necessarily diminished return to the labour of all; while the other looks to increasing the proportion engaged in the work of production, and diminishing that engaged in trade and transportation, with increased return to all, giving to the labourer good wages, and to the owner of capital good profits. One looks to increasing the quantity of raw materials to be exported, and diminishing the inducements to the import of men, thus impoverishing both farmer and planter by throwing on them the burden of freight; while the other looks to increasing the import of men, and diminishing the export of raw materials, thereby enriching both planter and farmer by relieving them from the payment of freight. One looks to compelling the farmers and planters of the Union to continue their contributions for the support of the fleets and armies, the paupers, the nobles and the sovereigns of Europe; the other to enabling ourselves to apply the same means to the moral and intellectual improvement of the sovereigns of America. One looks to the continuance of that bastard freedom of trade which denies the principle of protection, yet doles it out as revenue duties; the other to extending the area of legitimate free trade by the establishment of perfect protection, followed by the annexation of individuals and communities, and ultimately by the abolition of custom-houses. One looks to exporting men to occupy desert tracts, the sovereignty of which is obtained by aid of diplomacy or war; the other to increasing the value of an immense extent of vacant land by importing men by millions for their occupation. One looks to increasing the necessity for commerce; the other to increasing the power to maintain it. One looks to underworking the Hindoo, and sinking the rest of the world to his level; the other to raising the standard of man throughout the world to our level. One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other in increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other we may be proud to call the American system, for it is the only one ever devised the tendency of which was that of elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world.

“Such is the true mission of the people of these United States…. To raise the value of labour throughout the world, we need only to raise the value of our own…. To improve the political condition of man throughout the world, it is that we ourselves should remain at peace, avoid taxation for maintenance of fleets and armies, and become rich and prosperous…. To diffuse intelligence and to promote the cause of morality throughout the world, we are required only to pursue the course that shall diffuse education throughout our own land, and shall enable every man more readily to acquire property, and with it respect for the rights of property. To substitute true Christianity for the detestable system known as the Malthusian, it is needed that we prove to the world that it is population that makes the food come from the rich soils, and food tends to increase more rapidly than population, thus vindicating the policy of God to man.”

Carey attacked British Free Trade economics as a system that destroys national agro-industrial productivity, reduces consumption, destroys freedom, and causes war:

“Two systems are before the world: on the one hand, that which is denominated protection, and on the other that which is denominated free-trade.

“A great error exists in the impression now very commonly entertained in regard to national division of labour, and which owes its origin to the English school of political economists, whose system is throughout based upon the idea of making England `the workshop of the world,’ than which nothing could be less natural. By that school it is taught that some nations are fitted for manufacturers and others for the labours of agriculture, and that the latter are largely benefitted by being compelled to employ themselves in the one pursuit, making all their exchanges at a distance, thus contributing their share to the maintenance of the system of ‘ships, colonies, and commerce.’ The whole basis of their system is conversion and exchange, and not production, yet neither makes any addition to the amount of things to be exchanged. It is the great boast of their system that the exchangers are so numerous and the producers so few, and the proportion which the former bear to the latter, the more rapid is supposed to be the advance towards perfect prosperity. Converters and exchangers, however, must live, and they must live out of the labour of others: and if three, five, or ten persons are to live on the product of one, it must follow that all will obtain but a small allowance of the necessaries or comforts of life, as is seen to be the case.

“The object of free-trade is proclaimed to be the increase of commerce, but commerce withers under it.

“We thus have here, first, a system that is unsound and unnatural, and second, a theory invented for the purpose of accounting for the poverty and wretchedness which are its necessary results.

“The object of what is now called free-trade is that of securing to the people of England the further existence of the monopoly of machinery, by aid of which Ireland and India have been ruined, and commerce prostrated. Protection seeks to break down this monopoly, and to cause the loom and the anvil to take their natural places by the side of the food and the cotton, and that production may be increased, and that commerce may revive….

“The object of protection has been, and is, to restore the natural tendency by which industrial manufacturing takes its place by the side of the producer of food (national self-sufficiency), thus reducing substantially transportation fees and middle men sales costs and bringing about the stabler self-sufficient communities and nations.”

Is Lucifer and the DEVIL the same?

Quotations written by high level Masons

‘Brother’ Eliphas Levi
The Mysteries of Magic

“What is more absurd and more impious than to attribute the name of Lucifer to the devil, that is, to personified evil. The intellectual Lucifer is the spirit of intelligence and love; it is the paraclete, it is the Holy Spirit, while the physical Lucifer is the great agent of universal magnetism.” page 428

Masonic Diversion: ‘But Levi wasn’t a Mason!’

Fact: Eliphas Levi was a Freemason.

He was initiated at the Lodge Rose du Parfait Silence of the Grand Orient of France on 14 March 1861 in Paris. M. Caudet who was the Venerable (Worshipful Master) at Levi’s Masonic initiation is quoted in the Masonic Work ‘Eliphas Levi, written by Paul Chacornac thusly:

“In his reception speech, Eliphas Levi, to the great astonishment of his auditors, little inclined to paradoxes, made the following statement: ‘I come to bring you your lost traditions, the exact knowledge of your signs and emblems, and in consequence to show you the aim for the attainment of which your association has been constituted.’ He then tried to demonstrate to his coreligionists that Masonic Symbolism is borrowed from the Cabala. It was time wasted. No one believed him.”

Fact: Pike provided the first English language translations of Levi’s works, for inclusion in Degree Lectures for the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in ‘Morals and Dogma’, ‘Legendas’, ‘Sepher Ha Debarim’, and ‘The Book of the Words’.

Fact: When Pike’s library was turned over to the Supreme Council most of Levi’s writings were found to be part of it.

Fact: Given Pike’s practical worship of Levi’s writings, their place of prominence in Pikes own writings which are the primary books offered for sale today by the Scottish Rite Supreme Temple, the placing of Freemason Levi in the Masonic Luciferography is well earned.

Masonic Diversion: But Hall was a nobody, who no one has even heard of save for a few anti’s, etc., etc..

Fact: Manly P. Hall was a 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Mason who also headed the research school of the Rosicricians at San Jose. He was honored by The Scottish Rite Journal, who called him ‘The Illustrious Manly P. Hall’ in Sept, 1990, and further called him ‘Masonry’s Greatest Philosopher’, saying “The world is a far better place because of Manly Palmer Hall, and we are better persons for having known him and his work.” (Lectures On Ancient Philosophy was originally published as a companion guide to the encyclopedic The Secret Teachings of All Ages)

Masonic Diversion: But Blavatsky wasn’t a Freemason!

Fact: Blavatsky was a Freemason.

There is considerable literature relating to Blavatsky’s Masonic connections. In her Scrapbook, vol.III, p.256, on January 1878, she recorded that she received a diploma of the 32nd Degree in the Ancient and Primitive Rite of England and Wales. In the following month the issue was raised in the Franklin Register and Norfolk County Journal, the material of which has been published in H.P. Blavatsky. Collected Writings. Volume One. 1874-1868. On p.309, we learn that the Ancient and Primitive Rite was originally chartered in America, on 9 November 1856, with David McClellan as Grand Master, and that it submitted entirely in 1862 to the Grand Orient of France.

“If the buckler of Satan did not stay the flight of Michael’s lance, the power of the Archangel would be lost in the void, or would necessarily display and manifest itself by an infinite destruction, directed from above to below.

“And if the foot of Michael did not arrest Satan in his ascent, Satan would go to dethrone God, or to lose himself in the abysses of height.

“Satan is then necessary to Michael, as the pedestal to the statue; and Michael to Satan, as the brake to the locomotive.

“In analogical and universal dynamics we rest only on that which resists.

“Wherefore, as we have said before, the Universe is balanced by two forces, which maintain it in equilibrium; and the force which attracts, and that which repels. This is the equilibrium of the mountain of gold, which the Gods on one side, and the Demons on the other, hold tied by the symbolic Serpent of India; and its scientific reality is demonstrated by the phenomena of Polarity, and by the universal law of Sympathies and Antipathies….”

Instructions to World Supreme Councils
Aug. 14, 1889

The following quotation is taken from Edith Starr Miller’s (‘Lady Queensborough’) Occult Theocracy (Published originally in 1933 e.v., later published by the Christian Book Club of America.), pp. 220 – 221.

The theological dogma of Albert Pike is explained in the ‘Instructions’ issued by him, on July 14, 1889, to the 23 Supreme Councils of the world and have been recorded by A. C. De La Rive in La Femme et l’Enfant dans la Franc-Maconnerie Universelle (page 588).

You will often see Freemasonry try and associate the well known French occult author Abbe Clarin de la Rive with Taxil. This is a bare faced lie, de la Rive had absolutely nothing to do with him or anything that this Mason was alledged to have written or said. NOWHERE in ANY of Freemason Taxil’s writings does the following quotation appear, in whole OR part. If it did believe us the Freemasons would have the Taxil writing which included it plastered from one end of the Net to the other. We challenge the Freemasons to produce ANY document written by the anti-clerical Freemason Gabriel Jogand(Leo Taxil) that includes the following quotation! It’s a wonder they don’t try and pin what Albert Pike wrote in Morals and Dogma on Taxil. Perhaps that is next!

‘That which we must say to the crowd is — We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition.

‘To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees — The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the of purity of the Luciferian doctrine.

‘If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy, and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests, calumniate him?

‘Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive.

‘In analogical and universal dynamics one can only lean on that which will resist. Thus the universe is balanced by two forces, which maintain its equilibrium: the force of attraction and that of repulsion. These two forces exist in physics, philosophy and religion. And the scientific reality of the divine dualism is demonstrated by the phenomena of polarity and by the universal law of sympathies and antipathies. That is why the intelligent disciples of Zoroaster, as well as, after them, the Gnostics, the Manicheans and the Templars have admitted, as the only logical metaphysical conception, the system of the two divine principles fighting eternally, and one cannot believe the one inferior in power to the other.

‘Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil.'”

Incidently the above doctrinal description of Luciferianism is identical to that currently being taught in the open by many New Age, Rosicrucian, Pagan, and Theosophic occult groups who freely admit that many of their members are also members of ‘regular’ Masonic Lodges.

“We shall unleash the Nihilists and Atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effects of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will be from that moment without compass, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

Grand Lodge of British Columbia, Canada
Lucifer and Satan

“Lucifer is the term originally used by the Romans to refer to the planet Venus when that planet was west of the sun and hence rose before the sun in the morning, thereby being the morning star.”

Fact: Lucifer is Latin. Did you expect that the Babalonians and Egyptians 3,000 years earlier to have spoken in an Italian dialect? Your “orginally” arguement is worthless, pointless, and a complete canard. The ancients used their own tongue to describe a title of “light bearer” which they attributed to the “Goddess”. The planetary symbol for the “Goddess” is ‘Venus’, her astrological sign is ‘Virgo’, and her Tarot is ‘The Empress’. But WHO and WHAT is the “Goddess”? THAT is the question you continue to avoid answering.

“The same planet was called Hesperus, Cesperugo, Vesper, Noctifer, or Nocturnus, when it appeared in the heavens after sunset. Lucifer as a personification is called a son of Astraeus and Aurora or Eos, of Cephalus and Aurora, or of Atlas. He is called the father of Ceyx, Daedalion, and of the Hesperides. Lucifer is also a surname of several goddesses of light, as Artemis, Aurora, Hecate Astarte, Ashtoreth, Lilith, Isis, Cemeramis, Mari, and Ishtar.

The word “Satan” is from a Hebrew word, “Saithan”, meaning adversary or enemy; in original Jewish usage (see the book of Job), Satan is the adversary, not of God, but of mankind; i.e., the angel charged by God with the task of proving that mankind is an unworthy creation. The archangel Michael is supposed to be mankind’s defender in this heavenly trial. Thus Satan is not in opposition to God but in fact doing His will.

Fact: The word Satan comes not from Hebrew but from Aramaic – Satana.

“Satan is not the adversary of God, Satan is doing God’s will”.

Hymn to Lucifer

Ware, nor of good nor ill, what aim hath act?
Without its climax, death, what savour hath
Life? an impeccable machine, exact
He paces an inane and pointless path
To glut brute appetites, his sole content
How tedious were he fit to comprehend
Himself! More, this our noble element
Of fire in nature, love in spirit, unkenned
Life hath no spring, no axle, and no end.

His body a blood-ruby radiant
With noble passion, sun-souled Lucifer
Swept through the dawn colossal, swift aslant
On Eden’s imbecile perimeter.
He blessed nonentity with every curse
And spiced with sorrow the dull soul of sense,
Breath life into the sterile universe,
With Love and Knowledge drove out innocence
The Key of Joy is disobedience.

Lucifer, the Widows Son

THE MASONIC LEGEND has points of variance from as well as agreement with the Bible story. It states that Jehovah created EVE, that the Lucifer Spirit SAMAEL united with her but that he was ousted by Jehovah and forced to leave her before the birth of her son Cain, who was thus THE SON OF A WIDOW. Then Jehovah created ADAM, to be the husband of Eve, and from their union Abel was born. Thus from the beginning there have been two kinds of people in the world. One begotten by the Lucifer Spirit Samael and partaking of a semi-divine nature imbued with the dynamic martial energy inherited from this divine ancestry, is aggressive, progressive, and possessed of great initiative, but impatient of restraint or authority whether human or divine. This class is loath to take things on faith and prone to prove all things by the light of reason. These people BELIEVE IN WORKS rather than faith, and by their dauntless courage and inexhaustible energy they have transformed the trackless wilderness of the world to a garden full of life and beauty, so lovely in fact that THE SONS OF CAIN have forgotten the garden of God, the Kingdom of Heaven, whence they were expelled by the decree of the lunar God Jehovah. Against Him they are in constant rebellion because He has tied them by THE UMBILICAL “CABLE TOW.” They have lost their spiritual sight and are imprisoned in the forehead of the body where it is said Cain was marked; they must wander as prodigal sons in the comparative darkness of the material world, oblivious to their high and noble estate until they find the door of the temple, and ask and receive LIGHT; then as “PHREE MESSEN” or children of light they are instructed in methods of building a new temple without sound of hammer, and when the spirit realizes that it is far from its heavenly home, a prodigal, feeding upon the unsatisfactory husks of the material world, that apart from the Father it is “POOR, NAKED AND BLIND,” when it knocks at the door of a mystic temple like that of the Rosicrucians and asks for light, when it receives the desired instruction after due qualification by building and ethereal soul-body, a temple or house eternal in the heavens, not made with hands, and without sound of hammer, when its nakedness is clothed with that house (see Cor. 4.5,) then the neophyte receives “THE WORD,” the open sesame to the inner worlds and learns to travel in foreign parts in the invisible worlds. There he takes soul-flights into heavenly regions and qualifies for higher degrees under more direct instruction from THE GRAND ARCHITECT OF THE UNIVERSE, who fashioned both heaven and earth. Such is the temperament of THE WIDOW’S SONS inherited from their divine progenitor Samael and given by him to their ancestor Cain. Their past history is a struggle with adverse conditions, their achievement is victory wrested from all opposing forces by indomitable courage and persistent effort, unchecked by temporary defeat.

Cannabis: The Philosopher’s Stone

Cannabis: The Philosopher’s Stone Part 1:

The Knights Templar and Cannabis from Green Gold: the Tree of Life, Marijuana in Magic and Religion by Chris Bennett, Lynn Osburn, and Judy Osburn

The Knights Templar and Cannabis

The alchemical information about cannabis use was reintroduced into Europe after the Dark Ages, when the Knights Templar, founded by Hugh de Payns (“of the Pagans”) around the beginning of the twelfth century, became involved in a trade of goods and knowledge with the hashish ingesting Isma’ilis. This knowledge was passed on from Eastern adepts and handed down esoterically through the medieval alchemists, Rosicrucians1[1] and later on to the most influential occultists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.

Modern Freemasonry is also said to have been derived from ancient Templar knowledge, which in turn came from earlier Arabic sources. “Sufi ism,” said Sir Richard Burton, was “the Eastern parent of Freemasonry.” However, the modern day Freemasons, the religion of the Businessman and Banker,2[2] for the most part are practicing empty rituals the meaning of which has been long forgotten. But some mystic Masons like Gerard de Nerval, one of the members of the famous Le Club Des Haschischins, were well aware of this Arabic origin for modern Freemasonry. Nerval commented on it in one of his books, much to the horror of many Masons of the time. Nerval published a 700 page memoir, Voyage en Orient, and released information considered sacred by Masons concerning the Master Builder Hiram, which is a pivotal part of their secret rituals. As the authors of The Temple and the Lodge commented:

Nerval not only recited the basic narrative. He also divulged — for the first time, to our knowledge — a skein of eerie mystical traditions associated in Freemasonry with Hiram’s background and pedigree. What is particularly curious is that Nerval makes no mention of Freemasonry whatsoever. Pretending that his narrative is a species of regional folk-tale, never known in the West before, he claims to have heard it orally recited by a Persian raconteur, in a Constantinople coffee-house.

Idries Shaw, the Grand Sheik of the Sufi s and historian of their faith, commented on the connection between the Templars and the Sufis:

That the Templars were thinking in terms of the Sufi , and not the Solomonic, Temple in Jerusalem, and its building, is strongly suggested by one important fact. “Temple” churches which they erected, such as one in London, were modeled upon the Temple as found by the Crusaders, not upon any earlier building. This Temple was none other than the octagonal Dome of the Rock, built in the seventh century on a Sufi mathematical design, and restored in 913. The Sufi legend of the building of the Temple accords with the alleged Masonic version. As an example we may note that the “Solomon” of the Sufi Builders is not King Solomon but the Sufi “King” Maaruf Karkhi (died 815), disciple of David (Daud of Tai, died 781) and hence by extension considered the son of David, and referenced cryptically as Solomon — who was the son of David. The Great murder commemorated by the Sufi Builders is not that of the person (Hiram) supposed by the Masonic tradition to have been killed. The martyr of the Sufi Builders is Mansur el-Hallaj (858-922), juridically murdered because of the Sufi secret, which he spoke in a manner which could not be understood, and thus was dismembered as a heretic.’ — Idries Shaw, The Sufis

Mansur el Hallaj, an outspoken advocate of intoxication as means to spiritual ecstasy, is stated to have been the founder of the still existing Order Templar Orientis in their official documentation, either written by, or under the supervision of the great hashish initiate Aleister Crowley, who at one time was a grand master of the Order. Interestingly el-Hallaj is also connected with the pre- European history of alchemy . Not surprisingly many have credited the Templars with being a vital link in this chain of transmission.

The Order of Knights of the Temple was founded in the Holy Land in 1118 A.D. Its organization was based on that of the Saracean fraternity of “Hashish im,” “hashish-takers,” whom Christians called Assassins. The Templars first headquarters was a wing of the royal palace of Jerusalem next to the al-Aqsa mosque, revered by the Shi’ites as the central shrine of the Goddess Fatima. Western Romances, inspired by Moorish Shi’ite poets, transformed this Mother-Shrine into the Temple of the Holy Grail , where certain legendary knights called Templars gathered to offer their service to the Goddess, to uphold the female principles of divinity and to defend women. These knights became more widely known as Galahad, Perceval, Lohengrin, etc. —Barbara Walker, The Woman’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets

The authors of The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail also comment on the liaison between the Templars and Isma’ili’s: “Secret connections were also maintained with the Hashish im or Assassins, the famous sect of militant and often fanatical adepts who were Islam’s equivalent of the Templars .” The authors also comment that “the Templars ’ need to treat wounds and illness made them adepts in the use of drugs.” And the Order; “in advance of their time regarded epilepsy not as demonic possession but as a controllable disease.” Interestingly cannabis is the safest natural or synthetic medication proven successful in the treatment of some forms of epilepsy.3[3]

Most (scholars) agree that the Templars “had adopted some of the mysterious tenets of the Eastern Gnostics.” — Walker, quoting, R.P. Knight, The Symbolic Language of Ancient Art and Mythology

The famed New Age author, and modern day “stoned philosopher” Robert Anton Wilson, wrote a whole book on the Templars, putting forth a theory that they were practicing a form of Arabic Tantrism, and ingesting hashish , a technique they had picked up from their contact with the Assassins. Unfortunately Wilson offers no documentation, but does comment that; “ambiguous references to a sacred plant or herb appear in their [the Templars ] surviving manuscripts.”4[4]

The Templars had acquired a great deal of wealth, a fleet of ships and a strong army of warriors who fought by a creed of never retreating unless the odds were more than three to one. Some began to feel threatened by the wealth and power the Order had attained. In a joint effort orchestrated by King Philip (who had been rejected membership into the sect) and Pope Clement V, the Templars were accused of heresy. Among the many criminal accusations against the Templars were mocking the cross, sodomy5[5] and worshipping a mysterious idol in the form of a head. The Templars were also accused of tying a sacred cord around their waist, which was said to have been consecrated by pressing it against the mysterious head.

The spiritual descendants of Zoroastrianism, the modern Parsi, each day tie a sacred cord around their waist as part of the ancient Kusti ritual. The Templar practice of the Zoroastrian Kusti ritual indicates a tradition of knowledge going back through the Isma’ilis (witness the similarities between their seven grade initiations, with those of the cult of Mithra s) to earlier Gnostic and Zoroastrian influences.

If the Templars trampled the crucifix, they may have copied the example of Arab dervishes who ceremonially rejected the cross with the words, “You may have the Cross, but we have the meaning of the cross.” — Idries Shaw, The Sufis

The crucifixion is a major tenet of Roman Catholicism that has been denied by a number of groups dating back to the earliest days of Christianity. The Gnostic s were killed for repudiating it. The largest massacre in Roman Catholic Church history was over this very tenet when the Albigensian Crusade took place and 30,000 soldiers were sent forth by the Papacy to slaughter 15,000 men, women and children — slaughtered not for denying Christ and his teachings, but for denying his crucifixion. (See chapters 19 and 20, Goddess and the Grail and The Resurrection.)

In The Sufis, Idries Shaw states the Templars ’ worship of a mysterious head could well be a reference to the great work of transhumanisation that takes place in the aspirant’s own head.

The Golden Head (sar-i-tilai) is a Sufi phrase used to refer to a person whose inner consciousness has been “transmuted into gold” by means of Sufi study and activity, the nature of which it is not permissible to convey here. — Idries Shah, The Sufis

We propose in this study that the mysterious head worshipped by the Templars may have actually been some sort of a vessel or cauldron, like the head of Bran the Blessed in Celtic mythology 6[6] or a later day version of the Mahavira Vessel. In “The Mahavira Vessel and the Plant Putika, ” Stella Kramrisch describes a plant which she connects with the mysterious soma.7[7] The Mahavira Vessel, like the Templars mysterious idol, is referred to as a head. To the ancient worshipper the Mahavira vessel represented the decapitated head of Makha, from whose wound flowed forth the Elixir of Life.

The Templars were rounded up and arrested on Friday the thirteenth (the origin of the “bad luck” associated with this combination), October, 1307. Although put through the extreme tortures that the Inquisition was so famous for, the vast majority of the Templars denied the charges. Of course the inquisitors coerce a small number of admissions of guilt. When subjected to excruciating pain, people will most often admit to whatever their questioners want to hear. The court repeatedly refused to hear depositions from no fewer than 573 witnesses. Some Templars managed to escape, but the majority were burned at the stake. A witness to the event stated:

All of them, with no exception, refused to admit any of their alleged crimes, and persisted in saying they were being put to death unjustly which caused great admiration and immense surprise.8[8]9 — Stephen Howarth, The Knights Templar

For this act Dante,  who was inspired by Sufi authors,  in his INFERNO,  places both King Philip and Clement V firmly in Hell.10[9]

Baigent and Leigh speculate in THE TEMPLE AND THE LODGE that some of the Templars may have escaped to Scotland. They point to medieval graves with Templar insignias, and Templar style churches (round) as evidence. Scotland was at war with England at the time of the Templars ’ persecution, and in the resulting chaos the Papal Bulls dissolving the Order were never proclaimed there. Comparatively, according to Professors Graeme Whittington and Jack Jarvis of the University of Saint Andrews in Fife, Scotland, hemp was grown agriculturally in tenth century Scotland. Sediment from Kilconquhar Lock, near Fife, contained cannabis pollen . Cannabis from around the same time has been found in East Anglia, Wales and in Finland. The hemp was found to have been grown in areas occupied by religious groups of the time. Jarvis commented in an Omni interview, “the decline of these ecclesiastical establishments may have coincided with a decline in the growing of hemp.”

In a letter to Chris Bennett, dated November 6, 1992, Dr. Alexander Sumach, author of Grow Yer Own Stone and A Treasury of Hashish stated:

You are on to some interesting views. The Templars were active in only rare goods — which were tax free. Silks, drugs, astronomical equipment. Cannabis as a confection — not a pipe was their toy. Turkish delight. They grew fields of hemp for canvas and rope to equip their vast fleet that traveled far and wide. Check out the connection between the Mic Mac Indian myth hero “Glooslap” who may have been a Templar in Nova Scotia. He taught the Indians to fish with nets. Cartier, centuries later saw the natives with neat hemp clothing made from native hemp. Cartier was from a hemp district in France, knew all about ships. If he called it hemp….

Mircea Eliade commented on the potential connections between the Templars and the Grail Myth (also known as the Fisher King and The Perlesvaus). He stated in A History of Religious Ideas Vol. III that in a twelfth century text of the legend, the knights were members of a group referred to as Templeisen. He adds: “A Hermetic [alchemical] influence on Parzival seems plausible, for Hermetecism begins to become known in twelfth-century Europe following massive translations of Arabic works.” The scholar further comments on the secret languages, symbols and passwords that were in use in Europe at that time. Wolfram Von Escchenbach wrote his version of the myth, Parzival, sometime between 1195 and 1220. Interestingly

Wolfram is also said to have paid a “special visit to Outremer,” a Templar outpost, “to witness the Order in action.” In Wolfram’s version of the tale the Templars are the knights who guard the Grail and the Grail castle. R. Barber contends in Knight and Chivalry that PERLESVAUS, written by an anonymous author, may well have been penned by a Templar.

The Templars appear in The Perlesvaus not just as military men, but also as high mystical initiate s. This is indicative, for the Templars were only too eager to reinforce the popular image of themselves as magi, as wizards or sorcerers, as necromancers, as alchemist, as sages privy to lofty arcane secrets. And indeed, it was precisely this image that rebounded upon them and provided their enemies with the means of their destruction. — Baigent and Leigh, The Temple and the Lodge

FOOTNOTES

[1] Modern Rosicrucian groups, like AMORC, have little knowledge of cannabis use. Interestingly, the founder of the modern day branch of this ancient order, H. Spencer Lewis, commented that when he reintroduced the Order in the early part of this century, he altered the Rosicrucian methods more than had ever been done before, in order to make it more acceptable to the modern day initiate. The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics comments that the Rosicrucians had been, up “until the war, very active in good works, especially in carrying investigations into the uses of vegetable drugs and the relief of disease by means of colored lights and hypnotic processes.” After studying many of the early Rosicrucian texts, I found them to be full of vegetative symbolism and secret references to cannabis, as well as being loaded with a lot of other valuable arcane knowledge. Perhaps this is an area of study to be looked at in future work. — C.B.

China & The Bush family: Middle Kingdom rainmakers

China

The Bush family: Middle Kingdom rainmakers
By Zach Coleman

HONG KONG – George Herbert Walker Bush arrived in Beijing 30 years ago as the official United States representative to China with one goal above all else: expanding his buddy list.

“My hyper-adrenaline, political instincts tell me that the fun of this job is going to be to try to make more contacts,” he wrote in his first diary entry. “And it is my hope that I will be able to meet the next generation of China’s leaders – whomever they may be. Yet everyone tells me that that is impossible.”

Bush Sr, already a champion networker, wasn’t to be denied. In a final triumph at the end of his stay, Deng Xiaoping, then vice premier, threw a farewell lunch for Bush Sr and his wife.

“You are our old friends,” said Deng, according to a Chinese government website. “You are welcome to come back anytime in the future.”

Bush Sr and his relatives have turned that open invitation into a family franchise over the years, setting themselves up as gatekeepers between lucrative business opportunities created by the opening up of China’s economy and the US corporate and political establishment. If Iraq is the place where the Bush men fight once they leave the oil fields of Texas, China is where they have made money.

China policy has been a hot-button issue in US presidential campaigns for more than half a century. This time around, many politicians are linking US job losses to the country’s exploding trade deficit with China, leaving the family trade in promoting US-China commerce with the potential to embarrass President George W Bush in his 2004 re-election drive.

Bush Sr and his brother Prescott both lowered their profile in the family business last year. Yet the Bushes’ business suddenly hit the headlines again in November, when documents and testimony from the divorce trial of the president’s brother Neil showed that he had signed a contract to receive US$400,000 a year from Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing, a Chinese company co-founded by a son of former president Jiang Zemin, in return for business information and advice. Fair enough, but Neil Bush has no background in technology. His brother’s administration, however, is leaning on Beijing to reduce tax discrimination against imported semiconductors.

There is no evidence that Chinese companies or officials have influenced US policy under Bush Jr by playing up to his relatives. Indeed, last May, Bush Jr penalized China North Industries (Norinco), a company with which Prescott once worked, by halting Norinco’s $150 million annual export trade with the US for two years, after concluding that the company had shipped missile technologies to Iran.

Yet Chinese companies and officials continue to hold Bush family members in special regard.

Last month, the government Xinhua News Agency reported discussions that took place between President Hu Jintao and Bush Sr in Hainan Island province during the Boao Forum for Asia about “issues of common concern”. Hu delivered the barely veiled message that the US needed to be more sensitive to China’s position on Taiwan’s independence in order to get more cooperation on the US priorities of trade and terrorism. Bush Sr replied, according to Xinhua, that Bush Jr “highly valued the important role that China has made in the efforts for peaceful solution to the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula”.

US companies also still see the Bushes as Middle Kingdom rainmakers. In December, Bush Jr invited a business group founded by Prescott to send 50 members to a reception on the White House lawn for visiting Premier Wen Jiabao. And a group of bankers and financiers travelled from the US with Bush Sr last month to an environmental protection conference in Shanghai that featured top officials from the standing committee of the National People’s Congress and other government bodies, according to the Shanghai Star.

It all makes for a lucrative niche. There are no publicly disclosed figures on how much the family has made overall in the last three decades as China brokers. But the deals continue to add up.

Prescott Bush Jr:
Prescott Bush only made his first visit to China after his brother Bush Sr had moved into the White House as vice president in 1981. He quickly became a regular, leaving behind his 33-year career in the insurance brokerage business in preference for Chinese deal making. A 30 percent stake in one early project, an $18 million golf club in Shanghai, gave Prescott the opportunity to strike up a friendship with then-mayor Jiang Zemin (who now heads the communist party’s powerful standing committee of Central Military Commission).

Now 81, Prescott Bush still travels to China two to four times a year, according to the website of Plus Holdings, a Hong Kong-listed company focused on China, which hired Prescott as a special adviser three months after Bush Jr’s inauguration. The website features Prescott’s picture at the top of its home page. “He has many friends in China,” the site says in its biography of the special Bush family adviser.

Prescott Bush Resources, his consulting company, has put together more than 30 joint ventures in China since 1978, according to the website of Global Access, a US consulting company active in China, which retains Prescott as chairman of its advisory board. “Mr [Prescott] Bush has also facilitated meetings and approvals at the highest levels of the Chinese government,” the site adds in its biography.

“I don’t get a lot of business because my nephew is president or my brother was president,” Prescott insisted in an interview with USA Today in 2002, though he admitted, “You can meet a lot of people because of it.”

Prescott capitalized explicitly on the family tie-in by forming the US-China Chamber of Commerce in 1993 after serving on its predecessor, the Hong Kong-US Business Council, during his brother’s presidency.

“My brother, George, has been instrumental in the development of US and China relations since 1974,” he wrote in his letter to prospective members. The chamber pitches itself as a networking hub, which “provides the business communities in both countries with direct access to leading business people and government officials who are important in their business development efforts”.

Members of the chamber’s “Chairman’s Circle” include US agribusiness giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) and Wanxiang America, whose parent company markets products made in China to US customers. ADM and Wanxiang are also among the China clients listed on Prescott’s corporate biographies, which also typically mention Norinco, Anheuser-Busch and China National Cereals, Oils & Foodstuffs Import & Export Corp (Cofco).

In an e-mail reply to the Weekend Standard, Prescott said his work with Norinco consisted of trying to help the company secure the assistance of a US automotive manufacturer to set up a truck factory. “It was dropped because of lack of financing,” he said. “My relationship with Norinco was finished long before 2000.”

Norinco has operated under a cloud of suspicion in the US for years because of its links to the Chinese military and a case involving the smuggling of thousands of Norinco AK-47 assault rifles into the US in 1996. The Bush Jr administration last month slapped new sanctions on Norinco for its Iranian activities, which involved shipping missile technologies to Iran.

By contrast, as president, Bush Sr granted a “national interest” waiver to allow a deal to proceed for shipping $300 million of Hughes Aircraft satellite equipment to China in December 1989, overriding sanctions imposed by Congress a month before in response to the Tiananmen Square incident – regarded as a massacre of peaceful demonstrators by most observers. Prescott had visited China just before his brother that February and returned weeks after the Tiananmen violence for talks with officials on several deals, including one for a US company pitching a satellite communications network that would utilize the Hughes equipment.

“We aren’t a bunch of carrion birds coming to pick the carcass,” Prescott told the Wall Street Journal at the time. “But there are big opportunities in China, and America can’t afford to be shut out.”

Then in April 2001, Prescott flew to Beijing hours after news broke of a collision between a US spy plane and a Chinese fighter jet off Hainan Island. He was an an invited passenger on United Airlines’ first Chicago-Beijing flight, and stayed on in the country well after the other passengers had returned home.

He told USA Today a year later that he didn’t get involved in the settlement that resolved the high-tension spy plan crisis during his stay. Certainly he had business to do.

Since Bush Jr’s election, Prescott’s China clients have closed a flurry of deals, including some with each other. Anheuser-Busch signed a deal in 2002 to ramp up its stake in Tsingtao Brewery and this month announced a HK$1.1 billion ($141 million) investment in Harbin Brewery. With Prescott Bush’s help, ADM opened and expanded a slew of joint-venture factories – including some with fellow client Cofco – to become China’s largest oilseed processor. In January, Wanxiang America took a stake in Sageworks, a US financial software company that appointed Prescott to its board of advisers in 2002, and took up Chinese distribution of its products.

Prescott himself, though, has kept a low public profile of late. He says he resigned the chairmanship of the US-China Chamber in April 2003 because “it was time to let younger people take over”.

Neil Bush
As a member of the younger Bush generation, Neil only entered the China trade 10 years ago, setting up Interlink Management Corp as a matchmaker between US and Asian firms, especially the Charoen Pokphand Group of Thailand, a conglomerate controlled by a Sino-Thai businessman. Through Interlink, Neil helped CP Group form a joint venture with Koll Real Estate for a $300 million mall in Shanghai and a joint venture with Beaulieu of America to sell carpet in China.

George Herbert Walker Bush
Since his presidency, Bush Sr has stayed out of the undignified business of actual deal making. Instead, he has been collecting hefty fees from US companies to be their icebreaker.

It’s easy money. Companies pay Bush Sr $125,000-$150,000, plus first-class expenses for three, and must fly him over by private jet, according to his representative, Brooks International Speakers & Entertainment Bureau. In return, Bush gives a speech at a banquet or conference. His presence alone usually draws dutiful attendance by top Chinese officials, who are then chatted up by sponsors.

Companies that have hired Bush Sr to talk in China have included the CP Group, Arco, the Chubb Group, IMC Global and the Carlyle Group. Carlyle, a US investment firm, appreciated Bush Sr’s 1998 China trip on its behalf so much it made him a senior adviser to its Asia advisory board the next year, a position he resigned from last October.

“If you’re unknown in China and trying to get known, and you’re trying to get a license there, having a former president at a reception might get people to come who might not come otherwise,” a Chubb official told the Los Angeles Times. “We get to rub shoulders with them and get to know them better.”

Chubb got its insurance license a year after Bush Sr’s visit. Similarly, IMC closed a deal to sell fertilizer to a Chinese government agency two months after Bush Sr’s talk at its Beijing conference.

With his son in office, Bush Sr’s recent trips have more often been sponsored by Chinese government organizations. Last month’s Shanghai conference was co-sponsored by the Association for International Understanding of China, the China United Nations Association and the US-China Foundation. The sponsors threw a birthday party for Bush Sr, who will turn 80 next month. The subsequent stop in Hainan Island, where Bush Sr met with President Jintao, came under the banner of the annual Boao Forum.

In 2002, the northern city of Tianjin, together with Business Week magazine, hired Bush Sr to headline a conference in the city. The Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries, an affiliate of the Foreign Ministry, picked up the tab for trips that year to Shanghai and Beijing and last October to Beijing. The association also co-sponsored a conference at Texas A&M University in November together with the university, its George Bush School of Government and Public Service and the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation that featured a who’s who of past and present officials, such as former vice premier Qian Qichen, Secretary of State Colin Powell and Henry Kissinger. The Bush Foundation lists the Chinese government as a $50,000- $100,000 contributor in the lobby of the presidential library.

Regardless of who’s picking up the tab, a visit by Bush Sr to China is usually an occasion to call on Jiang Zemin and, since his official retirement, his successors. On his October trip, his hosts hustled Bush Sr to separate sessions with Jiang, President Hu and Premier Wen. Bush Sr also met up with Jiang on Jiang’s visits to Texas in 2002 and 2003.

Although he has not held a government post in 11 years and has been collecting fees for promoting China trade in the meantime, Bush Sr often speaks up on current US-China relations both at and away from his meetings. In 2000, he weighed in strongly in favor of US legislation that set the stage for China’s entry to the World Trade Organization. A year later, with his son in office, he praised China’s support for Bush Jr’s anti-terrorism drive as “a rather courageous stand”. In October, he told Hu that, in the words of Xinhua, “The US side understood China’s concerns over the Taiwan issue.”

Jiang Zemin made clear to a Washington Post editor two months after Bush Jr’s inauguration what he expected from Bush Sr. “The father of President Bush, Bush Sr, came over to China many, many times and had many meetings with me in the seat you are now occupying,” Jiang said. “We believe Bush Sr will definitely push Bush Jr to bring US-China relations to a new level.”

George W Bush
Bush Jr arrived in China for a six-week visit on June 4, 1975, after finishing Harvard Business School and stayed through his 29th birthday. His father commented in his diary that his son was impressed by China’s universal health-care system after getting his tooth fixed for 60 cents – US.

As president, Bush Jr hasn’t asked China for help in fixing the US health-care system, but he has drastically changed his policy toward China since the early months of his presidency. In those days, his administration focused on China as a strategic threat and the president had expressed unqualified support for Taiwan, even referring to it directly as a country. Relations reached a low point with the standoff over the return of the US spy plane and crew involved in the Hainan collision.

Bush Sr has sidestepped questions on how much he’s talked to his son about China during his presidency. Outside the family, Bush Jr counts among his biggest campaign donors two businessmen deeply invested in China, Hank Greenberg of AIG and Sam Fox of the low-profile Harbour Group.

Certainly the Bush Jr administration’s views on China have been affected by the need for Beijing’s acquiescence to US actions in Iraq, Afghanistan and North Korea, countries that soared ahead of China as priorities after the September 11, 2001, terrorist strikes.

“He is able,” Bush Sr recorded in his diary when his son left town in 1975. “If he gets his teeth into something semi-permanent or permanent, he will do just fine.”

‘We are being killed because we’re black and because we refuse to be subservient to angry white men’

by Benjamin Dixon

____This is what no one is talking about with regard to the killings of black people. Some white Americans feel as though they have the right to confront us and, if we do not cower before their demands–if we don’t “humble” ourselves and comply–then they become infuriated. How dare we not instantly obey the words and instructions of these angry white men? How dare we respond to them as if we are equal. How dare we demand respect not only from thugs on the street, but also from thugs with badges. No one is talking about this because we aren’t ready to confront the glaringly obvious vestiges of Jim Crow: the idea that black people should be subservient–know their place, hold their head down, and say, “Yes Sir” and “No Sir” –whenever being instructed by any white person who wants to “teach us a lesson…”

Our leaders ignore this. Our media ignores this. Our justice system doesn’t even consider this. All our system considers is, if at the moment of confrontation, whether the person who shot the gun feared for his or her life. And in this regard, black people are stripped of our right to be human. We are stripped of our right to get angry when we feel as though we have been mistreated and disrespected. No one cares if little people with Napoleon complexes come to assert their need for domination over a group of people whom they feel should be subservient to them. And when they find men and women who refuse to bow down, they kill them. And what does America say about this? It tells black people that we should have complied.

The most painful example of institutionalized racism is the fact that our legal system pays little, if any, regard to this truth–especially when the victim is black and dead. A dead black man can have any narrative necessary created about him. It certainly helps that America is so ready to believe that every black man is a potential thug. This helps them conclude in their minds, without any question, what happened…

We must stop minimizing these murders to simply being about black and white and we must unpack what that actually means. While there are some who are killed simply because their skin color is black, most of the cases we are seeing are deeper than that. We are being killed because we are black and because we refuse to be subservient to angry white men who feel they should have authority over us. We are being killed because we are not cowering to the demands of small people with guns who want to be free to speak to us in any manner they wish. We are being killed because we have the nerve to “declare our right on this earth to be men, to be human beings, and to be respected as human beings.”

The Islanders

Once upon a time there lived an ideal community in a far-off land. Its members had no fears as we now know them. Instead of uncertainty and vacillation, they had purposefulness and a fuller means of expressing themselves. Although there were none of the stresses and tensions which mankind now considers essential to its progress, their lives were richer, because other, better elements replaced these things. Theirs, therefore, was a slightly different mode of existence. We could almost say that our present perceptions are a crude, makeshift version of the real ones which thus community possessed. They had real lives, not semi lives. We can call them the El Ar people. They had a leader, who discovered that their country was to become uninhabitable for a period of, shall we say, twenty thousand years. He planned their escape, realizing that their descendants would be able to return home successfully, only after many trials. He found for them a place of refuge, an island whose features were only roughly similar to those of the original homeland. Because of the difference in climate and situation, the immigrants had to undergo a transformation. This made them more physically and mentally adapted to the new circumstances; coarse perceptions, for instance, were substituted for finer ones, as when the hand of the manual laborer becomes toughened in response to the needs of his calling. In order to reduce the pain which a comparison between the old and new states would bring, they were made to for- get the past almost entirely. Only the most shadowy recollection of it remained, yet it was sufficient to be awakened when the time came. The system was very complicated, but well arranged. The organs by means of which the people survived on the island were also made the organs of enjoyment, physical and mental. The organs which were really constructive in the old homeland were placed in a special form of abeyance, and linked with the shadowy memory, in preparation for its eventual activation. Slowly and painfully the immigrants settled down, adjusting themselves to the local conditions. The resources of the island were such that, coupled with effort and a certain form of guidance, people would be able to escape to a further island, on the way back to their original home. This was the first of a succession of islands upon which gradual acclimatization took place. The responsibility of this “evolution” was vested in those individuals who could sustain it. These were necessarily only a few, because for the mass of the people the effort of keeping both sets of knowledge in their consciousness was virtually impossible. One of them seemed to conflict with the other one. Certain specialists guarded the “special science.” This “secret,” the method of effecting the transition, was nothing more or less than the knowledge of maritime skills and their application.

 

The escape needed an instructor, raw materials, people, effort and understanding. Given these, people could learn to swim, and also to build ships. The people who were originally in charge of the escape operations made it clear to everyone that a certain preparation was necessary before anyone could learn to swim or even take part in building a ship. For a time the process continued satisfactorily. Then a man who had been found, for the time being, lacking in the necessary qualities rebelled against this order and managed to develop a masterly idea. He had observed that the effort to escape placed a heavy and often seemingly unwelcome burden upon the people. At the same time they were disposed to believe things which they were told about the escape operation. He realized that he could acquire power, and also revenge himself upon those who had under-valued him, as he thought, by a simple exploitation of these two sets of facts. He would merely offer to take away the burden, by affirming that there was no burden. He made this announcement: ‘There is no need for man to integrate his mind and train it in the way which has been described to you. The human mind is already a stable and continuous, consistent thing. You have been told that you have to become a crafts-man in order to build a ship. I say, not only do you not need to be a craftsman–you do not need a ship at all! An islander needs only to observe a few simple rules to survive and remain integrated into society. By the exercise of common sense, born into everyone, he can attain anything upon this island, our home, the common property and heritage of all!” The tonguester, having gained a great deal of interest among the people, now “proved” his message by saying: “If there is any reality in ships and swimming, show us ships which have made the journey, and swimmers who have come back!” This was a challenge to the instructors which they could not meet. It was based upon an assumption of which the bemused herd could not now see the fallacy. You see, ships never returned from the other land. Swimmers, when they did come back, had undergone a fresh adaptation which made them invisible to the crowd. The mob pressed for demonstrative proof. “Shipbuilding,” said the escapers, in an attempt to reason with the revolt, “is an art and a craft. The learning and the exercise of this lore depends upon special techniques. These together make up a total activity, which cannot be examined piecemeal, as you demand. This activity has an impalpable element, called baraka, from which the word ‘barque’-a ship-is derived. This word means ‘the Subtlety,’ and it can- not be shown to you.” “Art, craft, total, baraka, nonsense!” shouted the revolutionaries. And so they hanged as many shipbuilding craftsmen as they could find The new gospel was welcomed on all sides as one of liberation. Man had discovered that he was already mature! He felt, for the time at least, as if he had been released from responsibility. Most other ways of thinking were soon swamped by the simplicity and comfort of the revolutionary concept. Soon it was considered to be a basic fact which had never been challenged by any rational person. Rational, of course, meant anyone who harmonized with the general theory itself, upon which society was now based. Ideas which opposed the new one were easily called irrational. Anything irrational was bad. Thereafter, even if he had doubts, the individual had to suppress them or divert them, because he must at all costs be thought rational. It was not very difficult to be rational. One had only to adhere to the values of society. Further, evidence of the truth of rationality abounded–providing that one did not think beyond the life of the island. Society had now temporarily equilibrated itself within the island, and seemed to provide a plausible completeness, if viewed by means of itself. It was based upon reason plus emotion, making both seems plausible. Cannibalism, for instance, was permitted on rational grounds. The human body was found to be edible. Edibility was a characteristic of food. Therefore the human body was food. In order to compensate for the shortcomings of this reasoning, a make-shift was arranged. Cannibalism was controlled, in the interests of society. Compromise was the trademark of temporary balance. Every now and again someone pointed out a new compromise, and the struggle between reason, ambition and community produced some fresh social norm. Since the skills of boatbuilding had no obvious application within this society, the effort could easily be considered absurd. Boats were not needed–there was nowhere to go. The consequences of certain assumptions can be made to “prove” those assumptions. This is what is called pseudo-certainty, the substitute for real certainty. It is what we deal in every day, when we assume that we will live another day. But our islanders applied it to everything. Two entries in the great Island Universal Encyclopedia show us how the process worked. Distilling their wisdom from the only mental nutrition available to them, the island’s savants produced, in all honesty, this kind of truth:

SHIP: Displeasing. An imaginary vehicle in which impostors and deceivers have claimed it possible to “cross the water,” now scientifically established as an absurdity. No materials impermeable to water are known on the Island, from which such a “ship” might be constructed, quite apart from the question of there being a destination beyond the Island. Preaching “shipbuilding” is a major crime under Law XVII of the Penal Code; subsection J, The Protection of the Credulous. SHIPBUILDING MANIA is an extreme form of mental escapism, a symptom of maladjustment. All citizens are under a constitutional obligation to notify the health authorities if they suspect the existence of this tragic condition in any individual. See: Swimming; Mental aberrations; Crime (Major). Readings: Smith, J., Why “Ships” Cannot be Built, Is- land University Monograph No. 115 I.

SWIMMING: Unpleasant. Supposedly a method of propelling the body through water without drowning, generally for the purpose of “reaching a place outside the Island.” The “student” of this unpleasant art had to submit himself to a grotesque ritual. In the first lesson, he had to prostrate himself on the ground, and move his arms and legs in response to the commands of an “instructor.” The entire concept is based upon the desire of the self-styled “instructors” to dominate the credulous in barbaric times. More recently the cult has taken the form of epidemic mania. See: Ship; Heresies; Pseudoarts. Readings: Brown, W., The Great “Swimming” Madness, 7vols. Institute of Social Lucidity. The words “displeasing” and “unpleasant” were used on the island to indicate anything which conflicted with the new gospel, which was itself known as “Please.” The idea behind this was that people would now please themselves, within the general need to please the State. The State was taken to mean all the people.

 

It is hardly surprising that from quite early times the very thought of leaving the island filled most people with terror. Similarly, very real fear is to be seen in long-term prisoners who are about to be released. “Outside” the place of captivity is a vague, unknown, threatening world. The island was not a prison. But it was a cage with in- visible bars, more effective than obvious ones ever could be. The insular society became more and more complex, and we can look at only a few of its outstanding features. Its literature was a rich one. In addition to cultural compositions there were numerous books which explained the values and achievements of the nation. There was also a system of allegorical fiction which portrayed how terrible life might have been, had society not arranged itself in the present reassuring pattern. From time to time instructors tried to help the whole com- munity to escape. Captains sacrificed themselves for the reestablishment of a climate in which the now concealed shipbuilders could continue their work. All these efforts were interpreted by historians and sociologists with reference to conditions on the island, without thought for any contact outside this closed society. Plausible explanations of almost anything were comparatively easy to produce. No principle of ethics was involved, because scholars continued to study with genuine dedication what seemed to be true. “What more can we do?” they asked, implying by the word “more” that the alternative might be an effort of quantity. Or they asked each other, “What else can we do?” assuming that the answer might be in “else”-something different. Their real problem was that they assumed themselves able to formulate the questions, and ignored the fact that the questions were every bit as important as the answers.

 

Of course the islanders had plenty of scope for thought and action within their own small domain. The variations of ideas and differences of opinion gave the impression of freedom of thought. Thought was encouraged, providing that it was not “absurd.” Freedom of speech was allowed. It was of little use with- out the development of understanding, which was not pursued. The work and the emphasis of the navigators had to take on different aspects in accordance with the changes in the community. This made their reality even more baffling to the students who tried to follow them from the island point of view. Amid all the confusion, even the capacity to remember the possibility of escape could at times become an obstacle. The stirring consciousness of escape potential was not very discriminating. More often than not the eager would-be escapers settled for any kind of substitute. A vague concept of navigation cannot become useful without orientation. Even the most eager potential shipbuilders had been trained to believe that they already had that orientation. They were already mature. They hated anyone who pointed out that they might need a preparation. Bizarre versions of swimming or shipbuilding often crowded out possibilities of real progress. Very much to blame were the advocates of pseudoswimming or allegorical ships, mere hucksters, who offered lessons to those as yet too weak to swim, or passages on ships which they could not build. The needs of the society had originally made necessary certain forms of efficiency and thinking which developed into what was known as science. This admirable approach, so essential in the fields where it had an application, finally outran its real meaning. The approach called “scientific,” soon after the “Please” revolution, became stretched until it covered all manner of ideas. Eventually things which could not be brought within its bounds became known as “unscientific,” another convenient synonym for “bad.” Words were unknowingly taken prisoner and then automatically enslaved. In the absence of a suitable attitude, like people who, thrown upon their own resources in a waiting room, feverishly read magazines, the islanders absorbed themselves in finding substitutes for the fulfillment which was the original (and indeed the final) purpose of this community’s exile. Some were able to divert their attention more or less successfully into mainly emotional commitments. There were different ranges of emotion, but no adequate scale for measuring them. All emotion was considered to be “deep” or “profound”-at any rate more profound than nonemotion. Emotion, which was seen to move people to the most extreme physical and mental acts known, was automatically termed “deep.” The majority of people set themselves targets, or allowed others to set them for them. They might pursue one cult after another, or money, or social prominence. Some worshiped some things and felt themselves superior to all the rest. Some, by repudiating what they thought worship was, thought that they had no idols, and could therefore safely sneer at all the rest. As the centuries passed, the island was littered with the debris of these cults. Worse than ordinary debris, it was self- perpetuating. Well-meaning and other people combined the cults and recombined them, and they spread anew. For the amateur and intellectual, this constituted a mine of academic or “initiatory” material, giving a comforting sense of variety. Magnificent facilities for the indulging of limited “satisfactions” proliferated. Palaces and monuments, museums and universities, institutes of learning, theaters and sports stadiums almost filled the island. The people naturally prided themselves on these endowments, many of which they considered to be linked in a general way with ultimate truth, though exactly how this was so escaped almost all of them. Shipbuilding was connected with some dimensions of this activity, but in a way unknown to almost everyone. Clandestinely the ships raised their sails, the swimmers continued to teach swimming. . .

 

The conditions on the island did not entirely fill these dedicated people with dismay. After all, they too had originated in the very same community, and had indissoluble bonds with it, and with its destiny. But they very often had to preserve themselves from the attentions of their fellow citizens. Some “normal” islanders tried to save them from themselves. Others tried to kill them, for an equally sublime reason. Some even sought their help eagerly, but could not find them. All these reactions to the existence of the swimmers were the result of the same cause, filtered through different kinds of minds. This cause was that hardly anyone now knew what a swimmer really was, what he was doing, or where he could be found. As the life of the island became more and more civilized, a strange but logical industry grew up. It was devoted to ascribing doubts to the validity of the system under which society lived. It succeeded in absorbing doubts about social values by laughing at them or satirizing them. The activity could wear a sad or happy face, but it really became a repetitious ritual. A potentially valuable industry, it was often prevented from exercising its really creative function. People felt that, having allowed their doubts to have temporary expression, they would in some way assuage them, exorcise them, and almost propitiate them. Satire passed for meaningful allegory; allegory was accepted but not digested. Plays, books, films, poems, lampoons were the usual media for this development, though there was a strong section of it in more academic fields. For many islanders it seemed more emancipated more modern or progressive, to follow this cult rather than older ones. Here and there a candidate still presented himself to a swimming instructor, to make his bargain. Usually what amounted to a stereotyped conversation took place. “I want to learn to swim.” “Do you want to make a bargain about it?” “No. I only have to take my ton of cabbage.” “What cabbage?” “The food which I will need on the other island.” ‘There is better food there.” “I don’t know what you mean. I cannot be sure. I must take my cabbage.” “You cannot swim, for one thing, with a ton of cabbage.” “Then I cannot go. You call it a load. I call it my essential nutrition.” “Suppose, as an allegory, we say not `cabbage,’ but `assumptions,’ or `destructive ideas” “I am going to take my cabbage to some instructor who understands my needs.” This is about some of the swimmers and builders of ships, and also about some of the others who tried to follow them, with more or less success. The fable is not ended, because there are still people on the island. Rearrange the name of the original community-El Ar-to spell “Real.” Perhaps you had already noticed that the name adopted by the revolutionaries-“Please”-rearranges to form the word “Asleep.”

Queen Philippa: England’s First Black Queen

England’s First Black Queen, Mother of the Black Prince

Philippa was the daughter of William of Hainault, a lord in part of what is now Belgium. When she was nine the King of England, Edward II, decided that he would marry his son, the future Edward III, to her, and sent one of his bishops, a Bishop Stapeldon, to look at her. He described her thus:

“The lady whom we saw has not uncomely hair, betwixt blue-black and brown. Her head is cleaned shaped; her forehead high and broad, and standing somewhat forward. Her face narrows between the eyes, and the lower part of her face is still more narrow and slender than the forehead. Her eyes are blackish brown and deep. Her nose is fairly smooth and even, save that is somewhat broad at the tip and flattened, yet it is no snub nose. Her nostrils are also broad, her mouth fairly wide. Her lips somewhat full and especially the lower lip…all her limbs are well set and unmaimed, and nought is amiss so far as a man may see. Moreover, she is brown of skin all over, and much like her father, and in all things she is pleasant enough, as it seems to us.”

Four years later, Prince Edward went to visit his bride-to-be and her family, and fell in love with her. She was betrothed to him and, in 1327, when she was only 14, she arrived in England. The next year, when she was 15, they married and were crowned King and Queen, in 1330, when she was heavily pregnant with her first child and only 17.

This first child was called Edward, like his father, but is better known as the Black Prince. Many say that he was called this because of the colour of his armour, but there are records that show that he was called ‘black’ when he was very small. The French called him ‘Le Noir’.

Philippa was a remarkable woman. She was very wise and was known and loved by the English for her kindliness and restraint. She would travel with her husband on his campaigns and take her children as well. When the King was abroad she ruled in his absence. Queen’s College in Oxford University was founded under her direction by her chaplain, Robert de Eglesfield in 1341 when she was 28. She brought many artists and scholars from Hainault who contributed to English culture.

When she died, Edward never really recovered, and she was much mourned by him and the country. King Edward had a beautiful sculpture made for her tomb which you can see today at Westminster Abbey.

THE EXPATRIATION ACT OF 1868 AND BLACK Forced Citizenship

Growing Black Opposition to Forced Citizenship by Roger Roots

Jubilee Correspondent

As reported in The Jubilee more than 2 years ago (Vol. 7, No. 2, 3), the IRS and Justice Department are facing a legal challenge from growing numbers of Blacks based on their forced U.S. citizenship status. Dr. Robert Brock, longtime President of the Washington, D.C.-based Self Determination Committee, filed a federal lawsuit in April of 1993 on behalf of slave-descended Africans in America who refuse to pay income taxes.

The challenge was based on well-founded principles of law: How can African Nationals be citizens of the United States when they never agreed to be governed by the United States? Their forced enlistment as U.S. citizens under the 14th Amendment was just another type of slavery, according to Brock. Brock outlined four main issues on which the refusal of Blacks to pay taxes was based:

A. There was no MUTUALITY of agreement to partake in the citizenship of the 14th Amendment.

B. There was no opportunity for

DISCLAIMER on the part of Blacks who wished to decline forced citizenship.

C. The legal DOMICILE OF black ex-slaves was and continues to be in Africa, according to all the rules of legal construction. (The domicile of origin is the domicile of every person until it is abandoned freely. The domicile gained by free birth in Africa cannot be changed by a slave birth in the United States.)

D. JURISDICTION based on Slavery. Brock’s legal analysis is as logical as his conclusion is inescapable. The forced citizenship of Blacks was the product of completely unilateral acts by others against them. No vote was ever taken, no petitions were ever signed, and no polls were ever conducted to indicate that African Nationals in America wanted to live under the White-created Constitution. The case was originally dismissed by the federal district court in Los Angeles. Brock has appealed and petitioned for rehearing over a 4-year period. The U.S. Attorney’s Office finally responded in April, 1994 but did not dare broach the specific allegations of Brock’s action.

“It is clear that [Brock’s] constitutional challenges to the income tax on his wages are nothing more than the usual garden variety tax-protestor-type arguments that have time and again been rejected by all courts to have considered them,” wrote the assistant U.S. Attorney. The case has now wound its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has denied certiorari. Brock is currently petitioning for a rehearing, but views the case as having reached the end of the line in U.S. courts. Brock has been busy trying to gather 2-1/2 million signatures of Blacks who vow to stop paying income tax. “in view of the fact that the United States after 4 years has not come forward with an answer to the 4 questions,” Brock told The Jubilee, “2-1/2 million Blacks are not going to pay any more taxes to the U.S. and will take direct action to obtain reparations and self-determination.”

While it is unknown how many Blacks will actually follow up on their vows to refuse to volunteer income tax payments, it is certain that the petitions serve another purpose. They are disclaimers of mutuality and stand as evidence that the signor does not consent to citizenship. And because all legal remedies have been exhausted, Brock said, “We [Blacks] will be forced to take direct action or seek redress under international law.”

THE EXPATRIATION ACT OF 1868 AND HOW BLACKS CAN GET OUT FROM UNDER U.S TAXES BY THE SELF DETERMINATION COMMITTEE

What is Expatriation?

The U.S. Congress passed The Expatriation Act of 1868 one day prior to the pronouncement of the ratification of the 14th Amendment. The Expatriation Act of 1868 made official the Congressional view that every individual on earth has the absolute right to expatriate (remove) himself from one government to another if he so desires. The current Expatriation Act is based upon The Expatriation Act of 1968. The 1868 Expatriation Act was, in reality, an effort to cover up a substantial error contained in the 13th Article of Amendment, which reads:

“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereon the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

Now by what international authority did the Congress of the United States have to place upon the Black People of this nation, who were, or whose ancestors and antecedents before them were brought into the Territorial Jurisdiction of this nation by force (not political/social) in chains without their consent of mutuality? The fact was that the Congress knew they had no such jurisdiction, and so The Expatriation Act was their offer to the Blacks to expatriate themselves, i.e. to voluntarily abandon one’s country, renouncing one’s country and becoming the citizen or subject of another country. After over 200 years of slavery and forced illiteracy by the threat of death if caught reading a book, Blacks had 24 hours to make this decision. Where were Blacks to go, and with what? In this manner, Congress was attempting to free itself of the responsibility for slavery.

Repatriation, Reparations and Self Determination should have been offered to the slaves. Since the ignorant Blacks knew nothing of this Expatriation Act, few, if any took advantage of it. A very few did sign papers for this act. The inaction of the remainder of the Blacks (most of us) did, however, in the eye of the Congress, make our future servitude “voluntary” thus conforming to the intent of the 13th Amendment. Contrary to the popular misunderstanding, the 13th Amendment did not free the slaves, but, in effect, removed slaves from the private hands of their Confederate slave masters, who had lost the war, placing them into the hands of legislative government where African slaves’ descendants continuously to today have their “ownership” as legislated slaves without Self Determination.

Blacks of slaves’ descent were without the political process under constitutional provisions until the ratification of the 14th Amendment under martial law as an adhesion contract, making Blacks “person after the law” which is to say that Blacks became legislatively granted citizens “after” the law was passed, without their participation, consent or mutuality, whereas Whites are Citizens “before” the law and their status does not depend on law but on their mutual consent to the law. The legal status of Blacks is continued enslavement, i.e. persons with no choice in their so-called citizenship who were forced to pay taxes with the 16th Amendment. White People pay direct taxes under the Constitution in Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 (1787):

“Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States” As such, there are two citizenships in America, one for Whites and one for Blacks, and two direct Taxing structures, one for Whites and one for Blacks, which is racial discrimination. There is also legislated Civil Rights for Blacks and Human Rights for Whites, mutuality contracts for Whites and “adhesion contracts” for Blacks. These differences are in violation of International Law and serve to explain our continued confusion and

apprehensions about our legal status in America. How Can Blacks Expatriate from the Racially Discriminatory Laws on Citizenship and Taxation and Get Out from Under U.S. Taxes?

Attorney Dr. Robert L. Brock is helping African slaves’ Descendants to get out from under U.S. taxes and racial discriminatory laws, and while there has been no solution for slavery after the deaths of 100 million Blacks plus forced citizenship and forced taxation, by expatriating from the corporate U.S. Government you will not be obligated to pay U.S. taxes.

Expatriation does not mean that you will have to leave the United States.

You can maintain residency in the U.S. Our current residency is as captives of war. What more to have residency based upon choice via Expatriation, with an end to illegal taxation? Africans did not come to the U.S. to be citizens by choice as do immigrants.

You can expatriate yourself from the United States as a forced legislative person “after the law” as an African Slaves’ Descendant.

“Quest for Answers in Tax Case Continue”

It all began when a young woman, Carolyn Worsley, from Tarboro, north Carolina decided not to open her mouth, according to Dr. Robert Brock, because she refused to submit to the jurisdiction of the United States of America. This made her the perfect case.

“I’m not that bold. If they [the courts] ask me for my name, I’ll give it,” Brock said. But this young woman, Carolyn Worsley, basically said, “I’m not subject to your jurisdiction,” and did not submit. Because of this, she became the perfect “test case.” Worsley was indicted on two counts of filing false claims against the United States Government.

According to a press release from the office of Janice McKenzie Cole of the United States Attorney’s Office, Worsley filed her 1994 and 1995 Federal Income Tax Returns knowing that they contained fraudulent losses from self-employed businesses. The amounts, which could ultimately cost her up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $500,000 and a supervised release term of three years, were $3,052 for 1994 and $3,319 for 1995. Worsley was indicted (although the jury Foreman failed to sign the paperwork) on April 3 and subsequently arrested on April 9 and held without bond until April 14.

Brock submitted a “Notice to the Courts” on her behalf which basically stated that because Worsley was a U.S. slave descendant [and not a citizen of the United States] based on the fact that there has never been mutuality (or coming to a mutual agreement with the former slaves) and domicile (persons who were taken from Africa by force who never agreed to become residents of the United States of America); although according to the New Standard Encyclopedia, the 14th Amendment that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside,” does not apply to her, because of the prior disagreements; therefore, the United States has no jurisdiction over her. What made this case different, according to Brock, was that Worsley, “refused to submit; she didn’t answer any of their questions. Not a single one.” She didn’t even tell them her name. In an order issued by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina Eastern Division, the court found the issue to be “frivolous and without merit,” and cited several cases where courts have uniformly rejected the argument that individuals who are “Freeborn” or “natural individuals” are not subject to taxation. In the transcript of a hearing held on Monday, July 7, Worsley did not verbally answer any questions, and Brock asserted that there were two different approaches that could be taken in the case. One was that the United States lacked jurisdiction over Worsley, which Brock said that he provided the Court and to the United States Attorney’s Office, and the other was that she was arrested illegally. Brock requested that the court rule on the issue of jurisdiction. The judge set her hearing for August 25 at 9 A.M. In the meantime, the battle lines were being drawn. On Monday, August 18 the Court ruled that it did, in fact, have jurisdiction over Worsley; however, because Brock did not receive the notice until the Friday prior to the Monday trial, he was forced to file an Emergency Writ of Prohibition with the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in Virginia on Monday the 25th to stop the proceedings. In his writ, Brock cited several areas including the fact that the United States and the Internal Revenue Service did not respond to the motion of Judicial Notice challenging jurisdiction as a matter of right under Rule 201(e) (f) which erroneously stated that the United States had responded; based on that lack of responses, he challenged the ORDER written August 20; and he claimed that Worsley was forced to sign a release to stay out of jail and cited an excessive bond amount. While Brock was filing the writ in Virginia, outside of the courthouse in Greensboro, protestors marched to show their disapproval of the treatment that Worsley was receiving. In November, Brock received an Unpublished Opinion of three of the Appeals Court Justices which, according to Brock, continued to disregard facts. On December 1, Brock filed a petition for a Rehearing in Banc (which would bring all 10 justices together to hear the case). The petition was denied “as no member of this court or the panel requests a poll on the suggestion for rehearing in banc.” Brock will visit Greenville, North Carolina on Saturday, February 21 at 3 P.M. to discuss Reparations and Taxation.

Black Tax Rebellion in the U.S.A.

(A reprint from the Daily Challenge

Tuesday, Forum Column, p. 5, April 29, 1997)

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights “The laws of nature, law of self-preservation, and International Law are here the applicable laws, since the United States cannot be sued for slavery, since it allowed Negro slavery by its law and Constitution, but then, how can the United States use its Constitution to tax Blacks of slaves’ descent? Are we to say the United States is immune from slavery charges?” Dr. Robert Brock, Self Determination Committee The prejudice of the Government and the Caucasian majority in the United States against Blacks (slaves’ descendants) is deeply, almost mysteriously rooted in the past.

Therefore the Nations of the world may not yet realize what it is that fuels America’s racial turmoil. In this study of the presently occurring Back Tax Rebellion, an attempt is made to clarify this hidden element. We recognize that there are officials, and member States of the United Nations who have observed, with deep interest the problems in America. Some know that the United States of America is a uniquely deceitful government, claiming a great human rights record while hiding gross violations of human rights from world view. Others may need to see more evidence. This study gives evidence of the fear-driven decisions of the U.S. Government, it shows how these decisions have caused the most serious Black rebellion to date, and it demonstrates how Blacks are justified seeking the assistance of the world community. If the United Nations would intervene to help resolve the racial conflict in America at this moment, it could not stop the Black Tax Rebellion. The Self Determination Committee of Attorney, Dr. Robert L. Brock has collected 60,000 signatures (125,000 as of 1998) of persons disclaiming mutuality with the U.S. Constitution. This number is rapidly growing as Blacks begin to question the legality of their status. Because of the climate of fear and hate, such a rebellion is bound to cause great tension between Blacks and the U.S. Constitution and the Caucasian majority. Increased tension promises increased oppression and increasing demands for U.N. intervention. Can the Black Tax Rebellion be defended, before the Nations of the World, as rebellion against tyranny? The following facts will indicate that this rebellion may indeed be justifiable. Upon reading these facts, perhaps Member States will respond to the petition of the Honorable Silis Muhammad, and the Government of the Lost Found Nation, and prepare to step in and protect slave descendants while they force the United States to comply with International Law. We will begin our study by looking at the work that Dr. Brock has done to exhaust the available judicial remedies. Before we look at the arguments that we brought before the Courts, it can be revealed that the final result was __ the U.S. Government waived its rights and defaulted (In The Supreme Court of the United States, October Term, 1996, No. 96-6680: WAIVER. The Government hereby waives its right to file a response to the petition in this case, unless requested to do so by the court. Walter Dellinger, Acting Solicitor General.). Dr. Brock spent four years taking the case through the Courts, eventually having to file a brief to the Supreme Court in Certiorari asking the Court the question, “How are we before the Supreme Court when no issue was raised and all of the defendants defaulted? Since no issue was raised, the opposition came from the Court itself.” Early on in his fight, Dr. Brock was quoted as saying, “The Judge resorted to any excuse as a rationale to dispose of this hearing, since if the merits of this case were to so much as get into the Court, we would have won a priori because all of the premises of our action from decades of research, are un-impeachable.” What we see in the action of the Court is a Government dodging, hiding and hoping that it can avoid the fruit of its oppression. The action of the Courts in opposing the slave descendant’s prayer, rather than judging the facts, gives great strength to the prayer for United Nations intervention.

Dr. Brock insists that slave descendants are now empowered to go forward on their own as they went forward before they were in slavery. Also, the IRS cannot take Blacks to court for not paying taxes when they’re already in court and the Government waived its rights and defaulted. So therefore the IRS commits violence if it does anything else to collect income tax from Blacks (slaves’ descendants) in the future. It appears that the legal grounds may be firmly established for the Black Tax Rebellion.

Following are four arguments upon which the case is built, and two rules or conclusions. Mutuality – The Basis of All Law: The 13th Amendment to the Constitution brought an end to the buying and selling of African captives. The 13th Amendment also gave a new power to Congress, and that power was to enforce the 13th Amendment by appropriate legislation (Civil Rights law). In essence, this meant that the slaves were removed from the authority of their individual owners and put under the authority of the Congress. This, Dr. Brock argues, points toward one continuous act of enslavement. The 14th Amendment proceeded to make the slaves citizens. Since other persons (other than slaves) were already citizens, born and naturalized, the 14th Amendment had a problem in accomplishing slave citizenship. They could not offer the slaves mutuality because the slaves might make demands for compensation, might wish to return home, might wish to govern themselves. The old fear of rebellion or retaliation must have entered the reasoning process of the lawmakers. The slaves were not offered a choice in citizenship, and so the basis of law, which is mutuality, was ignored. The new 14th Amendment (2nd class) citizens, under the control of the Congress, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, forced into citizenship, were still not free nor were they equal. Subsequently the slave descendants were taxed under the 16th Amendment.

Disclaiming the Foundation of U.S. Law: Under the guidance of Dr. Brock, the Petitioner Leonard Ashton, descendant of slaves, on behalf of himself and 49 million slaves’ descendants, made an oral disclaimer of the U.S. Constitution and all of its laws, statutes, rules and regulations. A maxim of law is that silence means consent, baring the Statute of Limitation. Since there was no opportunity for disclaimer at the time when the 14th Amendment forced citizenship upon the slaves, that disclaimer Limitation, Dr. Brock filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, Los Angeles Central District, on December 10, 1965 to stop the Statute of Limitation on slavery, thereby gaining time to exhaust the legal remedies and gradually inform the slave descendants of the legal issues. After Mr. Ashton delivered the disclaimer in Court, Dr. Brock was able to argue that since the Plaintiff disclaimed the Constitution on the grounds that no mutuality ever at any time existed between the United States and Plaintiff, it is the duty and law of the United States to overcome this disclaimer by proof of mutuality or consent, showing that the Plaintiffs are by mutual law subject to paying taxes as free people.

Determining the Domicile of Slave Descendants: Can domicile be forced? Dr. Brock states the following: “The domicile gained by free birth of Africans in Africa cannot be changed by a slave birth in the United States, and the Rules are: (1) It lies upon the other side (the U.S. and IRS) to show that the clear unquestionable domicile, gained by birth of Africans in Africa was abandoned and given up; (2) That the domicile of origin is the domicile of every Person, until that is abandoned, and another gained; (3) That no domicile can be acquired until the Person is free and sui juris.” The conclusion is that slave descendants don’t have domicile as of yet until they take it out, and they can’t take it out because they are slaves. (Remember Dr. Brock’s argument that because there is no mutuality, and a disclaimer exists, slave descendants are in involuntary slave status until the Government offers mutuality, reparation and self-determination.) Denying U.S. Jurisdiction: Dr. Brock asks, “If the Government does not have the prerequisites to jurisdiction, such as mutuality and domicile, then how can it have jurisdiction?” The argument states that there can be no jurisdiction and venue over all U.S. Slaves’ Descendants of African National Ancestry unless the Defendants IRS and the United States overcome the disclaimer and the two rules.

RULE 1: That in view of the true and legal status of Petitioner/appellant Leonard Ashton, and all of the forty-nine millions of Appellants’ class or group identified as

“United States Slaves and Slaves’ Descendants of African National Ancestry Origin and Ethnic Group resident in the Territory of the United States, as per their contract of citizenship and association, no indictment can lie in absence of proof of crime.

RULE 2: The Government of the United States must have jurisdiction of United States Slaves’ Descendants of African Origin, and that there is no prosecution in the absence of jurisdiction, and before a crime by United States Slaves’ Descendants of African Origin, there must be a violation of the law and the violator must be a subject of the law, and the Court must have jurisdiction.

Conclusion

The government of the United States has not paused for one moment and said “You are free, and you are human.” Therefore we do see a continuous act of force (physical and psychological) applied by the U.S. Government against Blacks to this day. It is fear that has kept the U.S. Government from confessing to slavery and recognizing the full humanity of slave descendants. That fear has given grounds for rebellion and retaliation.

Following are the suggestions of Dr. Brock:

a. Do not comply with the illegal laws to pay taxes to the IRS and the U.S. on April 15th of each year. b. Recover all illegal paid taxes.

c. Organize and support actions for self-determination, liberties and reparations.

d. Use all means of International Law and law of self-defense to obtain these rights.

United Nations Intervention In the United States, due to the efforts of Dr. Robert Brock, and of Congressman John Conyers, both the Judicial and Legislative remedies have apparently been exhausted. The Legislature has refused to take the first step toward considering a remedy (HR 40 tabled since its introduction in 1991), and as we have read, the Judicial remedy is exhausted. The references to International Laws, covenants and Treaties in the legal brief of dr. Brock, along with the opinion of an expert in International Law, Dr. Y.N. Kly, in his book, A Popular Guide to Minority Rights (p. 70-73), seem to verify that salve descendants have legal grounds and the United Nations has an obligation. Members of C.U.R.E./A.F.R.E. suggest that Blacks are correct in taking the legal, nonviolent actions suggested by Dr. Brock, and they deserve the assistance of the world community. We urge the members States of the United Nations to respond to communications from the Honorable Silis Muhammad and the government of the Lost Found Nation on behalf of slaves’ descendants.

Worsley, addressed the Court that Ms. Worsley was not a “tax protestor” but was challenging jurisdiction based on negro slavery, disclaimer, with no “mutuality’, however. Susan Seahorn, in violation of Ms. Worsley’s human and civil rights, attempted by force to represent and to plead to lesser charge. – In every social system there must be a class to do the menial duties, to perform the drudgery of life. That is a class requiring but a low order of intellect and but little skill. Fortunately for the South, she has found a race adapted to that purpose at her hand. A race inferior to her own, but eminently qualified in temper, in vigor, in docility, in capacity to stand the climate to answer all her purposes. We use them for our purpose, and we call them slaves. Senator, Jams Henry Hammond, South Carolina, 1861.

And Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, the injured Party, and Defendant herein, Notice the United States as following:

(7) DISCLAIMER It has NOW come to the attention of Carolyn Yvonne Worsley from information, lectures, literature, research, reading, complaints Los Angeles

April 2, 1993 by Leonard Ashton, Affidavit of Facts

Opposing Venue,

-5 that I am a captive and slave.

(8) I, Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, NOW fully understand my status to be that of a captive slave of African Origin Ancestry from the facts alleged herein, and call upon the United States and the Internal Revenue Service to rebut the same in writing in open Court. (9)

That I, Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, supported by the Facts alleged herein, has never at any and all times to the present date, and whether through my ancestors of U.S. Slaves’ Descent or their antecedents before them, been or mutually accepted the legislative ordered association with and in the United States as stated in the l4th Amendment to the United States Constitution by being “born” in captivity and slavery as a condition used for association.

(10)

So that silence, performance, baring the statute of limitation, will not give consent, Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, NOW with such knowledge and understanding of the association, and manner of inclusion of myself and ancestors into the Political society styled “United States of America” by force, slavery, no mutuality, now in the following words disclaim such association, and said manner of association in and with the United States forcing Ms. Worsley and Black Class of Slaves’

Descendants into forced obedience to its Internal Revenue Service Rules and Regulations of Title 26, is also a violation of Article 73 of the Treaty of United Nations.

(11)

Further there are TWO CITIZENSHIPS: one for whites who are Citizens of the United States of America-a nation1 and U.S Black

-6-

of Slaves’ Descendants who are citizens of the United States, with the distinguishing differences being: FOR WHITE CITIZENS: Under the Declaration of Independence, the free white Citizens of the independent nations (formerly thirteen colonies) came together and formed what is called a body politic. The purpose of this body politic was to form a national Constitution. This body politic possessed a limited sovereignty by their citizenry of the thirteen nations they were Citizens of. In other words, these free white people were already Citizens predated their adoption of a constitution. By forming a body politic (national) made up of the citizens from the thirteen nations (states) did not abolish their citizenship in the thirteen nations (states).

Nor did the creation of the national Constitution abolish their previous citizenry.

This structure is important to understand because it shows where the citizenry of the white people is established. The national/ federal Constitution did not establish citizens. Citizens established the national Constitution. These same white Citizens established the thirteen nations that formed the United States of America, which means citizenry is established by the several state, not the national/federal power. Nowhere in the original Constitution did the free white body politic give Congress the power to establish a citizenry. Any establishment of a citizenry by the Congress is done without the authority of the original/national/federal Constitution. The citizenry then, becomes a birthright issue. Who establishes the birthright? Those free white Citizens of the several States. Under this rule of birthright, you first had to be white and second a member of one of the United States (state). Then, and only then, were they termed Citizens of the United States (The term united State. meaning only States united). See White Citizenship Article IV, Section 2, of the Constitution for the United States of America. Those white citizen by naturalization is by consent and mutuality.

FOR BLACK CITIZENSHIP: Unlike White Citizenship, which are citizenship of United States of America, Black citizenship is of the UNITED STATES, by legislation and not by mutuality of the 14th Amendment. The Fourteenth Amendment:

“Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States,…’ Notice there is no relation to race and there is no definition of person, other than the “p” in person is not capitalized, indicating the word would not mean a Natural Person, but a juristic person.

As the courts have said, the “due process” and “Equal protection” clauses of the Fourteenth

Amendment apply to corporations which ARE JURISTIC (artificial) persons. Compare this with

Article II, section 4 of the Constitution of the united State. of America: “No Person except a natural born Citizen,…”

-7- Notice the “N” in no, the “P” in Person and the “C” in Citizen. All of the capitalization is on the object to be distinguished as to who is a Natural Person. This is further clarified in Amy V. Smith, 1

Litt. Ky. R. 326, and Crandall V. Connecticut, (1834)

10 Conn340-358 which shows that not only Article IV, but all other Articles, I through VII of the National Constitution, were written only for the government of and for the white race, thereby barring Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, U.S. Slaves Descendant and Black Class from coming under their protection, THUS International Law must now be used By Ms. Worsley. See Neal V. Dalavare, (1880) 103 U.S. for nullification of white only State constitution, such as following: “In all elections not otherwise provided for by this #1 constitution, every white ma1e citizen of United State., ” Oregon Constitution, (1859)

Article 2. Section 2. “The electors or members of the general assembly shall

#2 be free white male citizens of the State,… ” Georgia Constitution, (1865) Article 5, Section 1. “Every free white male at age of twenty-one years #3 being a native or naturalized citizen of the United States,… ” North Carolina Constitution, (1856 Article 1, Section 3, clause

2. “All elections of governor, senator, and representatives #4 shall be by ballot. And in such election every free white man of the age of twenty-one years,… ” Delaware Constitution, (1792) Article 4, Section 1.

FURTHER, the Black Citizenship is Regional, unlike white State and Judicial Districts in that Federal citizens were and are governed by law martial agencies since the 14th Amendment was established. The first federal regional agency was the Freedman’s Bureau. (See an Act to establish a

Bureau for the Relief of Freedmen and Refugees, approved March 3, 1865, 13 Statue 507 and An Act to continue in force and to amend “An Act to establish a bureau for the Relief of Freemen and Refugees”, and for other Purposes, approved July 16,1866, 14 Statute 173) Military power was used to enforce the regulations of this federal regional agency, however, White people were tricked frauded or volunteered into the Social Security scheme and 1040 IRS Forms, since Social Security is an act established under the

-8 jurisdiction of the law martial which establishes its membership under the jurisdiction of the law martial, THUS white citizens of a State cannot then use the Bill of Rights 10 Amendment, but go to regional tax court FURTHER, in Black Citizenship (Artificial persons is that of taxing all Blacks of U.S. Slaves’ Descendants as excise taxes. Go back to July 12, 1890, when Congress proposed the Sixteenth Amendment to the legislatures of the several States, who’s ratification was completed February 3, 1913 Soon afterwards suits against the constitutionality of the 16th Amendment were filed; The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the 16th Amendment created no new taxing power and the Court ruled the 16th Amendment was and is an excise tax, and excise taxes are allowed under Article I, Section 8, Clause 1, See Long V. Rasmussen, 281 F. 236, 238 (1922)

Here Carolyn Yvonne Worsley is being prosecuted for a crime for not paying taxes as an excise and she is also being taxed as an artificial person which follows her citizenship of 14th Amendment as can be seen from following: The above Supreme rulings established that the tax imposed under the 16th Amendment is an excise tax. The point everyone missed is what the 16th Amendment taxed. An excise tax under Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 of the Constitution placed an excise on goods and Commodities, but had no power to impose an excise tax on the Citizen’s labor. It is the law martial that allows for Title 26 USC. Treasury Regulation 1.1-1(c) define the citizen of the United States to which the income tax laws apply as: “one subject to its jurisdiction. “ which is racial and slave two tier taxing structure for Black and white, also see same in Social Security Act,1935, 49Statute 620 as one subject to the jurisdiction; 26 USC 7701(a).

The Plaintiff United States, herein, and the Internal

Revenue Service used “law and Motion” against Carolyn Yvonne Worsley by them filing and charging Ms. Worsley with a crime on two counts for taxes, to which she now disclaim and for forcing her to execute a release form to get out of jail, to which she now also disclaim as following & making of Carolyn Yvonne Worsley as an artificial person citizen without mutuality subjecting her to the United States jurisdiction by force of arms and slavery: Disclaimer: Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, a Black Female of United States S1aves’ Descendants, seeking protection under international law, self-preservation, God Law and Law of Nature of self-defense from the herein alleged crime of the united States, JOHN R. STARKEY,

GEORGE A. MUENCH, MARGARET MILNER

RICHARDSON, ROBERT RUBIN, AND Others for the following reasons, among others:

1. Charging Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, with the status of slave with a crime without there ever at any and all time being any mutuality with the United States, it’s Laws,

Statutes, Title 26, its Constitution and its Fourteenth

Amendment and ITS Sixteenth Amendment

United States as in Article IV, Section 2, Clause 3 of the U.S. constitution in my own proper person, seeking to presently be sui juris, for my protection under International Law from slavery and crimes by the UNITED STATES and the INTERNAL REVENUE

SERVICE and here the UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT makes the following Disclaimer for the foregoing reason and for the hereinafter reasons alleged in this Judicial Notice and also in support of this Judicial Notice: I claim and charge that the UNITED STATES, plaintiff herein, and its Agency and Nominee the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE, well as the United States of America, do not, except as a slave, have no, none, not any jurisdiction by statute, code, rule, regulation, law based on mutuality—the basis of all law, and I, Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, here now Disclaim all said and such jurisdiction, statute, code, rule, regulation, and FURTHER, I Disclaim the Constitution for the United States and the United States of America, its Amendments, including the 13th, l4th, l5th and 16th Amendment and Civil Rights Statutes and, law and Titles thereof. and FURTHER I Disclaim any association, all in violation of Article 73 of the Treaty with United Nations, with the United States as a legislative, artificial citizen/person and as property, and FURTHER I Disclaim any association with the United States political society, by whatever name, organs, with or over, or by direction on the physical body of I, Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, and FURTHER I Disclaim any association with the Political jurisdiction and VENUE of the United States and claim that as a slave that I, Carolyn Yvonne Worsley is in the Territory of United States, without ever having a Domicile, and that this present jurisdiction in the United States is based and cause by the unilateral aggression and war

-11- of enslavement as a commercial slave trading enterprise with a “public” status of: “enemy alien in a state of war”, as seen in Article I, Section 8, Clause 15, and Article I, Section 9, Clause 1, and then reduced, after slave birth and training to that of a “private” status of: “slave”, and still further while under these two statuses, by legislation of the United States Congress reduced to another “private” status of: “citizen of the United States(and not Citizens of the United States of America) “or State Citizen as in: Article IV, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution in the same manner as White Citizens by the unilateral enactment of the Fourteenth Amendment legislation as a legislative artificial citizen/person with a grant bestowed for good behavior periodically of civil rights, special privileges and immunities, one of them being the burden of taxation under the 1040 adhesion and 14th Amendment contracts, all to which Carolyn Yvonne Worsley object, challenge, and Disclaim as they are based on negro slavery and captivity status, which also include all 49 million Blacks of slaves’ descent as following FURTHER Disclaimer:

1. Even from the very beginning, the mental thought, organization, scheme, crafty planning, evil, fiendish, immoral design, to capture and enslave African Nationals, as an economy in North America, was a unilateral act by White people;

2. Starting with Invasion, the preparation and direction thereof, of the Continent and Lands and Jurisdiction of

Africa, was a unilateral act by White and Jewish or

Europeans;

3. A war of armed struggle to repel the invasion of African

Homelands, was also caused as a unilateral act by

White and Jewish people;

4. The killing and Murder of African National to enslave – 12- their bodies by provocation, aggression, offensive force, and violence, was a unilateral act by White and

Jews;

5. The aggressive war to capture African Nationals was a war of enslavement and a unilateral act by white and Jews:

6. The War of Enslavement of African Nationals was caused-by white women and white women, Queen Elizabeth. under Act of George 23, issued a Warrant in 1555 to Sir John Hawkins and in 1618 a Charter was granted to Sir Robert Rich and other Jewish Merchants to establish a regular slave joint stock Company, from which we get the present day Wall Street Stock Market, and whether they had English, Dutch, French, Jewish, Spanish or Latin Surnames, Portuguese Names was an unilateral act, by these white people;

7. The African National were defeated and lost the war of-enslavement to white or Europeans. A bilateral act, thereby is losing their African liberties, freedom and moral expressions and self-determination, and then taken into captivity and enslaved by white people, a unilateral act;

8. The Nationals of Africa were forcibly expatriated from the Landed Jurisdiction, laws, culture, and citizenship of African Nativity as unilateral act on the part of white and Jew European people;

9. The forced expatriation was accomplished by Importation of Africans by an act of war and naval and army support of the United States by the use of Slave

Clause Article I, Section 9 clause 1, by white

Americans as a unilateral act;

10. The captive Africans were thrust into international law -13as stateless persons when they were carried away as exports for commercial purposes in ships over waters, oceans, seas, thereby internal law, LAW OF MERCHANT, admiralty law, and natural law attached to the bodies of Carolyn Yvonne Worsley’s ancestors and antecedents before them all as a unilateral act by Europeans; ll. The captive African Nationals were brought as Imports of property with an excise tax of $10.00 on their head as seen in Article I. Section 9, Clause 1, into the United States without mutuality or migration papers or passport into the Territory and not political jurisdiction as an act of war, with the status of: “Enemy Aliens” as a unilateral act by white and Jew people:

12. NEXT, the U.S. Constitution, so adopted contained many Provisions on enslavement of slaves, the unilateral act of whites and Jewish people. These slave provisions were inserted in the Constitution on the subject of Negro slavery to either increase it, strengthen it, or protect it

13. up to the adoption of the U.S. Constitution. slaves’ descendants were treated as a class without the operation of law or their consent and mutuality in all matters listed here in items 1 through 13 above, which is a class based war and arms, unilaterally causes by whites. THUS it follows, that any and all actions of Carolyn Yvonne Worsley on taxes, also apply to all other U.S. Slaves’ Descendant who sign on by Petition.

-14- The following U.S. Constitution Slave

Clauses/Legislation was caused by unilateral act of white and Jew Americans:

(1) – Slave Clause: Article I, Section 9, Clause 1;

Statute

The United States, Plaintiff herein, is called upon in open to bring Carolyn Yvonne Worsley into its jurisdiction by non violent law, as opposed to the forceful action of Plaintiff IRS Agent George Muench in the arrest of Ms. Worsley, to overcome her disclaimer by providing physical documentation such as documents showing mutuality, consent: document showing whether or not through Judicial Notice that Ms. Worsley’s Citizenship can be Verified by documentation, otherwise any future “law and motion” used, served upon Ms. Worsley is an act of slavery and war, and any future appearance of Carolyn Yvonne Worsley in Court is a “special Appearance” only to challenge jurisdiction, and not occasioned by ORDER SETTING CONDITIONS OF RELEASE, which was by force of arms. and this is Cruelty, FILARIGA V. Pena, 630 F2d 876.

(13)

DOMICILE AS to Domicile, a residence and official place/location by choice and mutuality, has never been obtained by Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, having been brought into the United State. Territory and slavery jurisdiction without passport from African government, visa, not even a green card or work permit to work on Plantations, therefore; the domicile of Carolyn Yvonne Worsley is still in Africa, and a slave birth “All person born in the United States… ” by force and war does not show domicile or mutuality. The domicile gained by free birth of Ms. Worsley in Africa cannot be changed by a slave birth as “born in captivity and slavery.. in the United States” The Rules on Domicile are: 1. It lies upon the other side to show, that the clear, unquestionable domicile, gained by birth…, was abandoned and given up, Sommerville V.

Sommerville (lord) 5 Vesey Junior, 756, (1801) (Vol. XXXI,

Chancery XI)

2. That the domicile of origin is the domicile of every person, until that is abandoned, and another gained. The domicile every child has on its birth must remain, until that is loss, and another acquired. Until another is acquired, that one cannot be lost. Somerville, 751. 3. That no domicile can be acquired, until the person is sui juris, Sommerville, 787, c/f The L’Amistad Case (Cinque) Peters Reports XV, page 593.

Having present the defenses to jurisdiction as of now being mutuality “Disclaimer” and here ” domicile”, we now turn to that of Jurisdiction and the two Rules. (14)

JURISDICTION

The 13th Amendment simply abolished chattel slavery. But it

-16did not repeal the Slave Clauses, nor did it end captivity and Physical Negro slavery, and the following which is shown as following to exist on all 49 millions of U.S.

Slaves’ Descendants:

a. Invasion and War Of Enslavement in Africa;

b. Captivity in Africa.

c. Imported into landed Territory of the United States as a physical slave, see U.S. Constitution: Article I, Section 9,

Clause 1;

d. Labor, and then have value and products of such labor due, stolen, taken without consent, contract, due to White and Jewish people without wages, payment of reparations to end slavery, and see Slave Provisions allowing by law Article 1V1 Section 2, Clause 3. e. The above a, b, c, and d, defines continuing Negro slavery now physical on and over all 49 million of Blacks.

In view of the above Carolyn Yvonne Worsley challenge the jurisdiction of the United States and Internal Revenue Service as being based on captivity and physical slavery, and will not appear unless to challenge jurisdiction of plea going to said jurisdiction, and the United States is here called upon in open Court to present physical evidence in the request for Judicial Notice to overcome Ms. Worsley’s jurisdiction challenge, otherwise the case should be Abated.

(15)

TWO RULE ON JURISDICTION RULE 1: “That in view of and according to the true status of Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, the injured Party, with the status of slave, along with the 49 millions of United States

Slaves’ Descendants of African National Origin,

Resident in the

-17- United States as Aliens as per their contract of citizenship, wherein there is a disclaimer of said citizenship or manner of association. No indictrnent can lie in the absence of proof of crime. ” RULE 2: “The Government of the United States must have jurisdiction of Blacks, Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, of slaves’ descent, and that there is no prosecution in the absence of proof of jurisdiction, and before a crime, by Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, there must be a violation of the law and the violator must be a subject of the law and the

Court must have jurisdiction’

(16) The war of enslavement is one act and one continuous act to the present date, and all unilateral acts as shown in above paragraph (12) which negates mutuality and liberty. (17) The Court, Chief Judge James C. Fox, is here now called upon to answer this disclaimer before any further “law and motion” is forced or committed against Carolyn Yvonne Worsley, a slave, including the Order Set For Release, otherwise Carolyn Yvonne Worsley will not appear for hearings, except as “special appearances” only for the purpose of challenging the United States and Courts jurisdiction.

Please inform as to date of hearing for Judicial Notice.
