Spengler was right

On Monday I quoted Oswald Spengler: ‘Christian theology is the grandmother of Bolshevism’, words that I have seen quoted in various forums. Racialist Christians reject that quote. But these days I have been thinking about a series of magazines that my father had bound. In times when Francisco Franco still lived in Spain, the series of magazines Jesucristo (Jesus Christ) was published in Madrid.

In one of the 1974 Jesucristo magazines, in the image on the back cover (left) we see a non-Aryan but a Semitic Jesus, and inside we can read a brief interview with Alfonso Paso, a Spanish playwright. In this magazine for Spanish-speaking Catholics from Franco’s time, the interview is titled ‘He [Jesus] preached a proletarian revolution in the world’.

As we have already observed on this site, Jesus did not exist. What did exist was a literary fiction author, the evangelist Mark, who stole passages from the history of the Roman God, Romulus, to sell us to the god of the Jews.

Here’s the interview that reminded me of Oswald Spengler:

What has been the contribution of Jesus to the history of humanity?

Alfonso Paso: As a historical figure, it should be noted that Jesus Christ preached a proletarian revolution amid a world ruled by violence and, using a word that shouldn’t make us blush, by capitalism. The great success of Jesus Christ the man is to have linked the great dissatisfied and deficient mass to a congruent metaphysics. Convinced of the unhappiness of others, Jesus Christ warns them that there is another world, another dimension in which goodness has its prize. The metaphysics of Jesus Christ is not original, it is steeped in orientalism. What is original is his social revolution.
 
What future do you foresee for faith in Jesus Christ?

Alfonso Paso: From the point of view of historical evolution, and thinking, like Toynbee, that politics is a form of ‘religion’, many things can happen. Today faith in Jesus Christ has grown to the point that many young people have made Him a kind of Che Guevara or Lenin, without knowing exactly what they were doing. It seems to them, simply, that Jesus Christ brings the message of the protest, and it is evident that in something these young people are not wrong.

We have been holding onto faith in Jesus Christ for two thousand years. If human evolution confirms the prognoses that we professionals in History are studying, it is very true that the number of believers in Him will decrease. Personally I am sorry, but the message of the Aquarian Age is, finally, a coherent message in which a lot of things are going to become clear. It happens, however, that the keys to the thought of Jesus Christ will always be current, in the same way that the keys to the thought of Confucius or Buddha are current today. After the first streak of Marxist enthusiasm, I foresee a plummet of atheistic materialism. That, so far, seems pretty clear to me.[1]

Alfonso Paso would die four years after the interview, in 1978. Indeed, in the following decade the New Age would reject atheistic materialism. And already in our century the revolutionary message of the fictional character that Marcos created culminated in the secularist Woke age, that Paso called the Aquarian Age (‘Personally I am sorry, but the message of the Aquarian Age is, finally, a coherent message in which a lot of things are going to become clear…’).

[1] Original interview in Spanish:

¿Cuál ha sido la aportación de Jesús a la historia de la humanidad?

Alfonso Paso: Como figura histórica hay que destacar que Jesucristo predicó una revolución proletaria en medio de un mundo gobernado por la violencia y, sin que nos sonroje la palabra, por el capitalismo. El gran acierto de Jesucristo hombre es haber vinculado a la gran masa disconforme y deficitaria a una metafísica congruente. Convencido de la infelicidad de los demás, Jesucristo les advierte que hay otro mundo, otra dimensión en la que la bondad tiene su premio. La metafísica de Jesucristo no es original, está impregnada de orientalismo. Lo que es original es su revolución social.

¿Qué futuro prevé usted para la fe en Jesucristo?

Alfonso Paso: Desde el punto de vista de la evolución histórica, y pensando, como Toynbee, que la política es una forma de “religión”, pueden ocurrir muchas cosas. Ha crecido en la actualidad la fe en Jesucristo hasta el punto de que muchos jóvenes han hecho de Él una especie de Che Guevara o de Lenin, sin saber a punto fijo lo que estaban haciendo. Les parece, simplemente, que Jesucristo trae el mensaje de la protesta, y es evidente que en algo no se equivocan estos jóvenes.

Llevamos dos mil años aferrados a la fe en Jesucristo. Si la evolución humana confirma los pronósticos que estamos estudiando los profesionales de al Historia, es muy cierto que disminuirá el número de creyentes en Él. Personalmente lo siento, pero el mensaje de la Era Acuariana es, por fin, un mensaje coherente en el que se van a poner en claro muchísimas cosas. Sucede, sin embargo, que las claves del pensamiento en Jesucristo tendrán siempre actualidad, del mismo modo que tienen actualidad hoy días las claves del pensamiento de Confucio o de Buda. Pasada la primera racha de entusiasmo marxista, preveo una caída en picado del materialismo ateo. Eso, hasta ahora, me parece bien claro.

  1. In my view, one doesn’t need to be a theist to believe in an Aquarian age. The life span of a false religion seems to be about 2,200 years. Christianity is almost 2,200 years old. It is beginning to become unstuck. It is imploding, demographically in America; and is practically dead in Europe. The sun is beginning to exit Pisces and rise in Aquarius on the Spring equinox.

    Everything in the past chapter an atheist can agree with.

    Some wonder whether or not Hitler might be the New God of this precessional age. Like Jesus he was famous and beloved among the people. Like Jesus he cast out the Jewish merchants. Like Jesus, Hitler’s country no longer exists, having been destroyed by superpowers and hyperpowers like the USA, and the USSR.

    I think that worshipping Hitler is a mistake. However if the Aquarian Age requires a new popular God—in my view it doesn’t—then Hitler is a great candidate.

    • You are still a Christian in some aspects. I’d recommend reading Carrier’s book that appears on the sidebar.

      • Yeah, I am not saying that Jesus actually did any of those things. Carrier calls the Jesus of the New Testament a “loathsome character” and I agree with him. However, this is how people imagine him to be.

        I was reading one book. Palm leaves don’t grow in April in Jerusalem. So that story of Jesus being greeted by people waving palms and shouting “Hosanna” is pure fiction, and older New Testament writers realise this and try—in vain—to correct it.

        Europeans are of the forest, and yet the holiest festival of Christianity occurs in a desert so arid and hilly that scarcely any trees grow there.

        This all is discussed in The Ressurection: A critical Examination of the Easter Story (2021) by Jonathan MS Pearce. He quotes Richard Carrier a lot in this book.

        If Hitler becomes the popular God of this precessional age—which I don’t recommend—then stranger things have happened.

        I am sure that Rabbi Jesus had no aspirations to become the popular God of the Piscean Age.

        I cannot help but notice the similarity between the cataclysm that launched Christianity: the 70 CE destruction of Jerusalem, and the cataclysm that launched Esoteric Hitlerism: the destruction of Hitler’s Germany.

      • Yet, you still have to read it. As I said, every time you post here I feel that your apostasy is incomplete.

      • Ok, thanks. I’ll read it. I have it as an audiobook on audible.
