The End

Tomer Persico:
The question, then, to paraphrase Gershom Scholem’s remark, with which we began, is whether Zionism will be able to withstand the impulse to realize itself conclusively and become history.
Shlomo Maistre:
The consummation of the world is the return of Judah's scepter, in the hand of King Solomon's seed, to the Temple.
The Temple Mount is the end towards which Zionism has ever strived, of course.

Fulfilling prophecy is not the end of only Zionism, but actually the end of history - the consummation of the world - and this is manifestly evident to anyone able to see that Zionism is the process of restoring Judaism and that Judaism, as original monotheism, is inherently true.  In sum, Zionism is collective ba'al teshuva - effectively.  Insofar as one understands Zionism as Judaism, the former likely has restored the latter.  Reclamation of the Temple Mount is the final realization of Judaism.

The reader, no matter how tender, cannot doubt this most conceited writer's exceptional percipience, acuity, and ingenuity.  These innate attributes of his intuition have rendered his mind monstrously proficient in understanding - understanding that which is and that which must be.  This proficiency in understanding was initially by this writer only used - used in understanding only that which is, used in service of changing one's mind about what ought to be, used through intellectual revolution.

Understanding can be used in service of what ought to be or what must be.  Never both.

As what is changes and - in accordance with what must be - inevitably diverges from any articulation of that which ought to be, there is increasing incentive to use understanding in service of what must be instead of what ought to be.  This path typically leads to learned apathy.  This writer's such path led to "Deductive Prosecutions" by virtue of not only his exceptional intuition but also his austere, contrarian, and mystical intellectual disposition.

That his prose is unusually acerbic, elegant, and epodic does not grant this writer a reprieve from having engaged in the most obtuse method of expression, which is the written word.  Even the most tender reader, though, must concede that his unusual prose - given its purpose - reduces the magnitude of his crime, since it is in well enough imitating the form of revelation to evince its function that prose may be sufficiently anachronistic to fulfill the paradoxical purpose of communicating truth to prove the inherent futility of all communication, whether written or not.

I have revealed mortal truths - at once shadows, consequences, and proofs of Truth, that unity of being, that eternal essence that binds all that is, that which is beyond the scope of human comprehension.  This was perhaps worthwhile, but definitely unnecessary.

I remain without remorse.

Scotland's Referendum: The Unicorn's Heart Yearns For Unity

That the United Kingdom's government has permitted and, indeed, legitimized a referendum on Scottish independence constitutes an abject surrender to cheap, crass nationalism.  Which is not to say, of course, that lending such legitimacy to the referendum was the wrong move on the part of Westminster, for influence is a child born as much to favor as to triumph.  And yet one can't help but note that retaining influence is a mere consolation prize when general and virtuous obedience once preserved such prodigious power in Westminster to be mistaken for a glimmer of sovereignty not thought to even be subject to such trivialities as provincial masquerades votes.

The disunion of the unicorn and the lion appears to be coming to pass.  One of the very last appendages of what was once the core of the British Empire is being torn apart by the discord of disobedience.

It's true, of course, that the British Empire in certain ways spread such absurdities as democracy, natural rights, and government by consent to the world.  But the British Empire was an Empire.  It was at least by form a purportedly unitary, unified, and centralized power that ruled by royal decree.  For much of its life the British Empire, for all its philosophical flaws, ruled by presumed sovereignty.

Westminster has walked a long and tortuous path from commanding a most glorious Empire to conducting public relations for a middling, regional power averting European sideshow status by the coattails of American hegemony.  Indeed, the discord born of time's passing has long since stripped the British Empire of her many overseas territories to which she had beneficently transmitted so many of those habits, forms, and prejudices she had cultivated for centuries and, through her stern hand afforded by her Royal providence, elevated her hosts culturally, technologically, and economically with such alacrity and to such prodigious heights that one can even today map with impressive accuracy where around the globe her imperial finger touched by simply charting where the lights of industrial civilization shine into the bleak, empty darkness of outer space.

That the tide of history has now at this late moment swept ashore to the very island of Great Britain is made plain by this true fact noted by all the talking heads: regardless of which way Scotland votes, the makeup of power in the United Kingdom is changed by this referendum.  Well, "not the actual referendum" the astute reader points out - and he is right (and still tender to this most conceited prophet of revelation) since it's the groundswell of public sentiment, this writer notes with melancholy, that modifies the constitutions of powers of nations.

And though this writer is well aware that this Scottish referendum, like all mortal rebellions against His providence, is in a certain sense inevitable, foreseen, and ultimately unavoidable in one form or another, he nonetheless is rather wistful and perhaps a bit grim thinking about it.

For every tortured fallacy of the modern age, though, there is a suitably retrograde retort - in which the tender reader, no matter how despondent, may take heart by way of a kind of aesthetic vengeance.

Demonstrating Progressives' backwards understanding of everything, it has generally been said that Scots voting their head will vote "nay" and Scots voting their heart will vote "aye".

This most arrogant savant implores the Scots to listen to their hearts, really ponder deeply and deliberate upon the inherent beauty of the unified essence by which all that is is - and to therefore vote no.

G-d save the Queen.

The more meanings a modern ear ascribes to the words of a foreign language, the more likely the foreign language is possessed of a (more) fundamental grasp of the essential nature of man's condition - ultimately by virtue of its relative proximity to the divine origin of all language.  After all, though not all foreign languages are dead, all dead languages are foreign!

Although (unlike most men) this most conceited writer understands puns to be the sorrowful imitations of that they are, he could not justifiably refrain from entitling this post with one word of two meanings that are both not only eminently appropriate but also bound together as two sides of the same coin - by the elucidations enumerated subsequently.  In other words, tender reader, the faith by which each of these convictions is by this writer understood is the means by which he has convicted reality of its eternal veracity.

Below are the convictions established by Deductive Prosecutions over the past ~17 months.

1. All in One.

2. Essential truth is incommunicable.

3. Truth is inherently so.

4. The disorder wrought by time is inherent.

5. Sovereignty is infallible.

6. Man observes effect, never cause.

7. The right of heredity is inevitable.

8. Human reason is both disorder and disorderly.

9. Worth is neither justifiable nor falsifiable.

10. How and why are ultimately synonyms.

11. Men, not ink blots, rule.

12. Silence is golden.

13. Meaning is experienced, not discovered through deliberation.

14. Progressivism is demonic religion.

15. The Land of Israel belongs to the People of Israel.

Democracy: The Show Must Go On

My maître à penser once wrote:
America is often cited to us: I know nothing so provoking as the praise showered on this babe-in-arms: let it grow.
It has certainly grown!  Oh, how it has grown!  Such praise now provokes only silent chuckles and agnostic grins among the wise - and even just the learned.

The Los Angeles Times reports:
Alarmed that fewer than one-fourth of voters are showing up for municipal elections, the Los Angeles Ethics Commission voted Thursday to recommend that the City Council look at using cash prizes to lure a greater number of people to the polls. 
On a 3-0 vote, the panel said it wanted City Council President Herb Wesson's Rules, Elections and Intergovernmental Relations Committee to seriously consider the use of financial incentives and a random drawing during its elections, possibly as soon as next year. 
Depending on the source of city funds, the idea could require a ballot measure. Commissioners said they were unsure how big the prizes should be or how many should be offered, saying a pilot program should first be used to test the concept.
Long has the farce of America's government indicted the likes of Thomas Jefferson as hopelessly naive, fundamentally misguided, and remarkably juvenile charlatans.  It would appear, though, that the Los Angeles City Council is determined to render the humiliation of the so-called Founding Fathers a bit more thorough by elevating the comedy of American theater "democracy" to the genuinely surreal.

An American sensation once unwittingly encapsulated the American devotion to democratic principles:
The show must go on 
I'll face it with a grin 
I'm never giving in 
On with the show
Gnon's retort:
So be it.  [A French translation: Toute nation a le gouvernement qu'elle mérite.]

Obedience: A Mortal Imperative

Sovereignty, the cosmic force that binds societies, is realized through all time.  It is inevitably realized because it must be.  Always.  Indeed, sovereignty, permeating that realm where all that is should be, transcends time.

The mortal domain, marked by time, is imbued with a mere shadow of sovereignty: power, which is the capacity to act through time.

In the mortal domain sovereignty is realized through obedience to power.

In the mortal realm power takes two forms: first as influence and second as action.  Influence is power that is perceived, while action is power that is realized.

Disorder, an intrinsic quality of the mortal realm, is the consequence of mutually exclusive effects.  Human desire, born of man’s universal degradation, is a general effect that renders social disorder in afflicting all men in all societies of all times.  A society is disorderly insofar as its power is perceived as political.  Inasmuch as power is, in other words, perceived to exist for social instead of spiritual purposes, it will likely be realized as such more quickly.

That is what we notice as violence.

For though all mortal power can (eventually) only serve the social purpose of preserving sovereignty, the process of ruling men is rendered rather less painful so far as those men act in accordance with sovereignty, the general interest, and the long-term (these, tender reader, are when properly understood demonstrative synonyms!), which is to say: obey – obey out of belief in power’s spiritual purpose.

But the disobedience that extricated man from divine provenance is defiling – thoroughly defiling.  Man knows only sin, for man was conceived in sin generally (metaphysically) and by sin particularly (literally).  Ergo, man rebels against authority.  But man can rebel less often and less egregiously!  To a degree.

In assuming that power is perceived as it ought to be, power is realized with less severity and less frequency.

Rephrase: in assuming that influence is distributed as it ought to be, action to modify the distribution of influence is undertaken with less severity and less frequency.

Rephrase: in assuming that things are as they ought to be, things become closer to how they should be.

If we define submission as obedience to sovereign power as a consequence of violence and belief as assumption of that which ought to be clothed in the garb of that which is, then we may rephrase yet again: insofar as obedience is offered by virtue of belief, obedience need not be eventually compelled by virtue of submission.  We see, tender reader, that Joseph de Maistre’s remark regarding submission and belief ("[…]these two infants of heaven prove their origin to all[…]”) was rather spot-on.

Sovereignty permeates only that realm where all that is should be.  The mortal domain, experiencing time, is imbued with power: the capacity to act through time.  It is through manifested power that all sovereignty is realized.  Since action is inevitable and every action is in some sense communication and since every communication betrays implicit meaning just as every action betrays implicit intention, it is only- but always! - through manifested power (action) that sovereignty is realized.  Action that realizes sovereignty through the meaning of action demonstrates (by definition) belief in sovereignty, while action that realizes sovereignty through the intention of action demonstrates (by definition) submission to sovereignty.

Sovereignty is realized by mortals through obedience to its incarnation in the mortal domain; power is obeyed, whether by submission or by belief.

Hope For America?

Were we at Deductive Prosecutions less discriminating in the vices we indulge in we might engage in hope after reading this, but we aren't so we don't.
