The Whore Enthroned

The excesses of the French Revolution strangely mirror our present predicament in both their ferocity and perversion. While we often cite the period as marking the beginning of the decline, the start of a truly tangible Kali Yuga, it is not as if this path has been smooth, beginning with minor infractions and accelerating to the present day. Far from it. The horrors of the revolution itself showed every bit of man’s grisly nature just as clearly as the meandering lunacies of our dear contemporary Progressive. As a reminder:

“There the dead were dragged out of their tombs with shouts, with laughter, with infernal pranks, which no people but the French could have committed, and which no writer of any other nation can describe. The best and the worst of their kings were exposed to equal indignities. No distinction was made as to sex, or virtue, or valour, or even military fame: if the embalmed remains or the mouldering bones were those of an aristocrat, they were cast forth, kicked about, or handled and examined, and exhibited with an apish curiosity scarcely less disgusting than the tiger ferocity, that other element of the national character.”

Man reverts to beast, he becomes the ape science has told him that he is, and kicks the bones of great men between his unwashed feet. Meanwhile, in the cathedral at Notre-Dame, Pierre Gaspard Chaumette, the sadistic and sexually perverted son of a shoemaker, organized the ultimate profanity against all things holy, desecrating the church and enthroning upon its altar a half-naked whore. This happened to the delight of the public who pledged their undying fealty to the goddesses Reason & Liberty, to this prostitute.

Chaumette was executed by guillotine in 1794, deemed too radical by his comrades, and the Cult of Reason proved to be a short-lived fad. But a question remains as to why a titillating symbol of liberated female sexuality was so intricately tied into the ideas of the revolution itself, and why did men empower such a symbol, rather than say a butcher, symbolic of their own sadism? Unpicking the meta-structure to femininity and how man interacts with this structure is critical for understanding contemporary politics surrounding sexuality.

Coincidentally enough, femininity has been on the study agenda recently. As part of an ongoing series of discussions related to Dante, which I will draw attention to when they are finished as a complete set, the Holy Theotokos has been under consideration. What is her symbolism, and what does her femininity teach us about the state of the contemporary woman?

In Orthodox iconography, the Virgin Mary is depicted with three stars adorning her shawl. They symbolize her virginity prior to the birth, after the birth, and into eternity. Her chastity before God is a symbol of devotion and carries with it a different significance than the chastity of monks. For monks, chastity is a particular ascetic pursuit designed to insulate one from corrupting influences and clear the darkened mind for the purposes of the highest personal theosis. For the Theotokos, virginity is a mark of devotion entirely devoid of a personal element, a renunciation of the world of personal pleasure and instinct in order to submit oneself into a greater whole. Not to conquer the inferior within, but to submit to the superior without. This is but the female path of salvation, the former being the male path. They are the lunar and solar sides of the same coin.

Mary is a figure of great historical and theological significance, but most women are not. In lieu of submitting themselves directly to the Divine element, women submit themselves to a husband to whom they are bound for life. Famously in India, when a man’s life expired, his widow would jump onto his funeral pyre, following her purpose and center of attention into the beyond. The moon cannot be without the sun, for it produces no light of its own. Without the sun, it lives in darkness, ceasing to exist fully in Schrödinger’s sense of superposition: ‘what cannot be seen cannot be known to be in a certain state.’

We have made clear on numerous occasions that the male and female spirit are bifurcated along lines of virtue. For the man, the virtues of the warrior and the priest. For the woman, the virtues of the lover and the mother. Notice that all four of these virtues has a black mirror, an inversion that represents its nadir. For the man, the evils of the coward and the hedonist. For the woman, the evils of the adulterer and the child-killer. These represent the explicit rejections of the virtues attainable to men and women.

It is worth noting that as with the virtues, the vices for men are independent of the opposite sex, while the vices for women are dependent on the opposite sex. A man can be a hedonist when he seeks endless pleasure in food, drink, drugs, gluttony, violence, or any number of activities that do not require women, even while sexual vices are common. A woman however cannot commit adultery except with a man (lesbianism is not considered to be real sexuality in this context). Similarly, the man can demonstrably be a coward independent of women, when he is on the battlefield, even while submission to his wife is a form of cowardice. A woman however, cannot kill her child unless she is given that child by a man.

If you’ve ever wondered why religions tend to speak more harshly about the adultery of women, this is the reason. Not ‘sexism’ of the infantile kind that is proposed by scholars today, but an understanding of how nakedly evil adultery is in women. The significance of being a child-killer is also underlined by the fact that while murders, in general, are usually committed by men, the one subset of murders in which women routinely supersede men, is the murder of children in the primary years of care (this does not factor in abortion).

Civilization exists to punish cowards, hedonists, adulterers, and child-killers. If these necrotic influences are unchained, they corrupt the hearts of men and speed society to its quick destruction. The numeric account of the death of civilizations is wholly inadequate, for it is quality which has reign over quantity in every sphere that is not the perverted mind of the Modern. Men are in every case the lawgivers and prime movers of society. Due to dependence, they not only decide upon the restraints of their vices but upon those of womankind as well.

Sex is dangerous, in that it brings new moral agents into the world that then have to be dealt with using the care we ascribe to moral agents and do not ascribe to animals and inanimate objects. This prospect of risky addition has led to the development of highly sophisticated social systems which regulate sexual behavior within populations. The hard laws of human biology entail that human children have to be raised, they have to be protected, guided, taught. You cannot simply drop them out and expect things to turn out fine. Children need stable families to nurture their potential to its full expression.

Today, figures ostensibly of ‘the Right’, have convinced themselves that quantity does not arise from quality, and instead, the reverse is the case, and thus they are enamored by the notion that they can win the great war of numbers with their racial foes. One could, of course, laugh at the fact that this ‘war’ (it’s a travesty to give it such a title for how pathetic it is) has been ongoing since the inception of legalized abortion across the Occidental world beginning in the last century, and has utterly failed to yield the results they desire. However, this would miss the most important point.

Support for abortion is de facto support for the sexual freedom of women. There is no getting around this point, for when a child is killed, the mother is free from the responsibility of having to actually be a mother. Regardless of her reasoning, the result is that her sexual activities pass without consequence. The hypocrisy of the modern ‘pro-life’ movement is that it opposes abortion while being completely unwilling to make any statement regarding sexual freedom. What asinine theater it was when President Donald Trump in a moment of blundering revealed this hypocrisy after proposing punishments not only for abortion doctors but for the women who pay their contracts, only to be denounced by every ‘pro-life’ leader in the United States.

That’s another essay in itself, but as a principle, abortion is about liberation from biology. It always was. “BUT!” cries the so-called ‘far right extremist’, “What about the children being born into broken families, who statistics show invariably grow to become drains on society!” I turn the question around and ask “What about the children being conceived by so many of these irresponsible degenerates? And who has enabled them in their current state?”

Oh, no! Do not dare question the sexual freedom of women. Do not dare question the behavior of whores who can be found panting and exhausted under a different man every weekend, be they white, yellow, black, or red! After all, it’s HER body, and how dare you violate her imaginary right to its sovereignty, established under no authority but her own.

The woman who murders her child is evil, rejecting motherhood entirely. But the men who support her engage in their own profanity: that of cowardice. You see, they know the dangers of sex and of bringing children into the world, but instead of controlling their women’s sexuality as all sane populations throughout history have done, they shrink from such responsibility and instead scuttle off to butchers in lab coats to ‘deal with the problem’ after the fact. How courageous. So noble.

This should be repugnant to any true man of the right. If you are unwilling to even fight the battle against the unleashed ‘bitches in heat’ that populate the West, we ought to laugh loudly at your determination for some kind of ethnic or religious conflict with other men in the future. Before anyone even speaks of ethnic minority abortions, note that in many of the home nations of these minorities, their men are fully in control. It is only when they arrive in Europe or North America that they shovel their kids out of the womb and into the garbage, and even then they still laughably outbreed the natives. While the ravings of Common Filth are hyperbolic and almost masochistic in their prose, they hold a kernel of truth about ‘white women’ in the contemporary era. But the thing is, it is not that ‘white women’ are particularly callous or cruel or even slutty. It’s that their men are pathetic, and unfortunately, this was on display in our own circles just recently, with numerous participants.

Forgive me if I do not rush to Notre-Dame to enthrone Tomi Lahren because her feminist bile isn’t tarted up with blue hair and a nose ring, and it got her fired from a garbage media outlet. Forgive me if I think native Occidental populations don’t have a chance in hell of winning the ‘abortion war’ with ethnic minorities. Forgive me if my allegiance is to the Organic State, in which I can think of nothing more patently inorganic than a mother who murders her offspring. Oh wait, there is one thing; a man who calls it virtuous.
