Next Exodus

You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day. – Deut. 5:15

We were given freedom, not all at once, but in stages. Even after leaving bondage in Egypt, we were still commanded to work 6 days a week. However one day was free for us to relax and enjoy and feel holy. Similarly we were given a Jubilee Year, which occurs every 50 years, on which all slaves are freed. This commandment is the origin of the Liberty Bell quote: “Proclaim liberty throughout the land and to all the inhabitants thereof.”

Robots now threaten to take away our work. This is of course a blessing and a curse. We have finally the opportunity for true freedom. But how do we navigate the transition to such a world without violence and destruction? After all, we were expelled from the Garden of Eden and cursed with work, punishment for the sin of eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil – the knowledge of genocide. This is clearly the obstacle to our return.

Alexandra Ocasio Cortez reassures us: “We should be excited about automation, because what it could potentially mean is more time educating ourselves, more time creating art, more time investing in and investigating the sciences, more time focused on invention, more time going to space, more time enjoying the world that we live in, because not all creativity needs to be bonded by wage.”

Of course she’s right that the goal is freedom from work, so that we can stroll in the Garden in peace and relaxation, like G_d once did. However socialism will surely destroy us, as it always does.

The solution is capitalism, in which we work hard to amass wealth, and then retire. The problem however is that many people don’t retire, often because they want to maintain power and authority as a brace against political instability. To overcome this conundrum, capitalism must be vindicated and socialism must be vanquished in all its forms including universal healthcare, minimum wage, open borders, etc. Then people will have the confidence to stop working and be free.

But in order for this to happen we must trust each other. That is not possible now, with so much enmity between people causing endless strife. Thus there must be a process of repentance and mutual forgiveness. In the time of Jesus, sinning was rampant and epidemic. However we’ve managed to get a handle on this problem, much to our credit. We are ready to share the “Holy Spirit”, and this will assuage mutual resentments.

Similarly, we are forbidden to worship idols, and while we are mostly successful in modern times, there is now another problem: our attachment to genocidal political ideologies. We deny this, but it is obvious: everyone’s a schemer.

Jews are attached to the disastrous myth of antisemitism. The idea is that non-Jews have an irrational, genocidal hatred of us that inevitably results in our destruction. However the true danger is the myth itself. We only end up polarizing all other social groups against us. We must finally let it go.

Thus the question is not “Why do they hate us?” But: “Why do we need to be so hated and despised?” What are the sins that our people are so desperate to atone for that we would sacrifice even ourselves? Why do we need to antagonize other societies to destroy us? We must instead reconcile with other social groups. Of course, the pushback will be furious: “You are going to get us all killed! You can’t ignore antisemitism! That’s what Jews said 100 years ago and look what happened!”

But of course this is nothing new. Moses endured this refrain for the entirety of the 4 decades of the Exodus:

They said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us in bringing us out of Egypt? Is not this what we said to you in Egypt: ‘Leave us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” – Exodus 14:11

We stand again on the precipice of eternity. The people are anxious and terrified and quarrel bitterly. Moses had to wait for a wicked generation to die off before they could enter the Promised Land. Hopefully with practice under our belt, we won’t have to wait as long to enjoy freedom in the Garden of Eden.

The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent. – Exodus 14:14

Forget Amalek

Amalek is the mythical, eternal enemy of the Jews. It preys on the weak amongst us: “Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt; How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee.” (Deut. 25:17) We are commanded to never forget the existential threat of Amalek to the Jewish peoples.

Sinat Hinam

The Women’s March saved us from the Trumpocalypse. Just a few days after the inauguration they came out by the millions to protest. Trump saw them and realized his despotic and autocratic dreams would not be realized. The marchers were an amalgam of many social and ethnic groups – blacks, gays, women, Jews, Muslims and immigrants. Yet now even as Trump shuts down the government to extort the country to accede to his abominable border wall, the Jews have embarked on a crusade against ‘antisemitism’ among the March leaders. The end result could be that democrats are weakened and give in, and after the construction is started on the wall, and immigrants are rounded up, Trump will then round up the Jews to send us back to ‘your country‘. Or even worse, he will detain us indefinitely: “We can’t send them back to Israel – the wall isn’t built yet you idiot!”

The Plot Against America

Donald Trump came to power promising to undermine and even eviscerate our most precious constitutional protections.  This included “opening up our libel laws”, “shutting down parts of the internet”, banning flag burning, monitoring Islamic institutions, opening up mental institutions, taking away due process, using torture, and many other examples.  His campaign was systematic and comprehensive, and yet when he came to power, he was thwarted at every turn.  The people spoke out against him, and our institutions are independent and resilient.  He is no longer a threat to the country, and can be kept in his box.

FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.  NOT AN ENDORSEMENT. He is an antisemite, yet he is exercising the country’s free speech muscle.  This more than anything will keep the Jews safe.

Back to the Garden

And the LORD G_d said, “Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever” — so the Lord G_d banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.  So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the Garden of Eden Cherubim, and a flaming sword turning every way, to guard the way to the Tree of Life. – Genesis 3:22

G_d promised us that if we followed His word, He would deliver us to the Land of Milk and Honey.  We have upheld our end of the bargain, and so He has fulfilled His covenant, and then some.  Continue reading Back to the Garden

The Myth of Antisemitism

So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek…. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands were heavy…. The Lord will be at war against the Amalekites from generation to generation. – Exodus 17:10

Antisemitism is an irrational fear and hatred of Jews.  It lies dormant in every population until something comes along and ignites it, at which point it spreads like a wildfire, or a cancer, or a virus.  It quickly infects the entire population, which then turns against the Jews to kill any who cannot escape.  Such an impulse exists only against the Jews and no other ethnic group.  A few ‘rational’ explanations may be offered.  For example, ‘race mania’ and ‘insane jealousy’.  Regardless, the Jews are completely blameless.  Any suggestion to the contrary is actually a sign of antisemitism.

The Loophole

The Torah does not prohibit slavery, though it provides many laws regarding the procurement and treatment of slaves, and requires their release every 7 years.  Slavery was of course common in the ancient world, and only in the last few hundred years has it been mostly abolished.  Similarly the Torah contains many laws on crime and justice, such as murder, rape, theft and drunkenness.  However there is one glaring exception about which the Torah is silent: child abuse.  While man may not lie with man as with a woman, there is no similar prohibition when it comes to children.  Whether this is an oversight or loophole, the ultra-orthodox have exploited it to great effect.  Child sex abuse is rampant in these communities.  This is why they love the Torah and cleave to it for dear life.

“Smile you’re going to learn Torah.”

How to Cause Another Holocaust

The key to instigating a genocide against one group in a society is to stoke resentments in all the other groups so that they are polarized against the target and align with each other to destroy the ’cause of all their troubles’.  This was of course, how the Nazis killed the Jews in the Holocaust.  Beyond that, fomenting division and infighting within the target group weakens it so that it cannot defend itself.  The Jews were significantly divided into many factions, such as Zionists, bolsheviks, haredi, and liberal, and thus were unable to ally to protect themselves.  In fact they despised each other much as they do today.

First They Came for Alex Jones

I was just suspended again (for 3 days) on Facebook, for the third time.  They claim it was a violation of ‘Community Standards’ but they don’t specify the violation.  I recently posted a screenshot of an alleged violation.  You can tell me what you think it is.  Antisemitism?  Homophobia?  Anti-Zionism?  I don’t think it is any of those things, nor have any of them been alleged.  Today’s violation was a 12 minute video I posted a few days ago.  Of course I can’t upload it to youtube lest the same thing happen.  Please download and watch and let me know if you can figure out the problem.  And tell facebook what you think of my suspension.  If this happens again I will be banned permanently.

Pinkwashing Genocide

This Thursday (Aug 2), thousands of gay Jews and their allies will gather in Jerusalem for the annual Gay Pride parade.  I went last year and it was a exuberant celebration by a flourishing and essential faction of modern Israeli society.  However there were 2 big differences between this and other similar parades.  First of all, the entire route is lined with soldiers toting machine guns to ‘protect’ us not from the Muslims but from the ultra orthodox Jews.  A few years ago a girl was stabbed and killed during the parade.  You can hear the extremists screaming angrily through megaphones in the distance but you cannot see them.  Continue reading Pinkwashing Genocide

The Atheist Delusion

And thou say in thine heart, “My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.” But thou shalt remember the LORD thy G_d: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth. – Deut 8:17

We have been restored to the Garden of Eden, but this is not enough for the socialist.  He is resentful and bitter for his lot, and looks around and sees the wealth of others and feels entitled to it.  Continue reading The Atheist Delusion
