    I agree with you Anthony on the usury rules, but I fear that adopting only that part of the Mosaic Covenant will not be enough to satisfy YHWH God.

    Deuteronomy 4:2 tells us that no part of this code may be omitted.

    Deuteronomy 5:3 tells us that this covenant was not made with Issac, Abraham or Jacob, and thus is a new covenant. This means Genesis is not a book from which we are to derive laws.

    With these two rules in place, it is a watertight system. There is no room at all for any change to it.

    Even if a magician comes and does wonders, and then tells us to change the rules, we are not to listen to him.

    Deuteronomy 13:1-5 is very clear. It explains why this happens, and what we are to do about it, namely, God tests our obedience, and we are to stone the person that tells us to break the covenant.

    The messiah is God himself, as shown clearly in Deuteronomy 30. When we are prepared to adopt all of the Covenant, we will be returned to Israel, perhaps in the same way that the Israelites were led from Egypt. This is very obvious if you reflect on your own experience. It makes more sense that God wants us each individually to obey him, and not rely on someone else to do all the work for us. Salvation is obedience. This is outlined in Deut 30 and leviticus 26.

    I can’t see it happening in my lifetime, but it is surely our job to prepare the way for those in the future who will be prepared to obey. We are now heading into a very anti-covenant society, so can expect troubles to magnify greatly.

    I think we are being pulled in by the Gravity of the Tower of Babel, which I think was not a historical fact, but a prophecy of the future. The EU parliament building represents the occult/communist dream, for us all to be united, the lure of “nothing shall fail from them of all that they may have undertaken to do”.

    The Inversion of Hierarchy and the Bondage to Matter

    “The merchant was placed lowest in the category of vocations – the knight, the tiller of the soil, the mechanic, the merchant.”
    – Inazo Nitobe, Bushido

    The basis of a “traditional society” is the way it perceives its place in the cosmos as a link between the terrestrial and the divine. The Hermetic dictum: “as above so below” is applicable here as in much else when analysing history from a traditionalist perspective. Conversely, the counter-traditional outlook and zeitgeist of a cycle (1) is portrayed by “The Devil” Trump in the Tarot. Paul Foster Case provides a meaning of “The Devil” that is particularly relevant to this paper:

    “In its most general meanings, it signifies Mammon and thus big business, the conventions of society, the injustice and cruelty of a social order in which money takes the place of God, in which humanity is bestialised, in which war is engineered by greed masquerading as patriotism, in which fear is dominant. Students of astrology will have no difficulty in seeing how this corresponds to Capricorn, the sign of big business, and the sign of world fame.”

    The most salient points for this paper are that the Traditionalist recognizes the triumph of Mammon over God and that this is personified by the centrality of business, and of material acquisition which becomes the social norm; the meaning of life.

    The Relegation of Commerce

    People in today’s modern societies will for the most part be perplexed by the contempt that mercantile interests were held by traditional societies. Because of the inversion of traditional ethos and concomitant hierarchies, the lowly have been elevated; in this sense, the lowly being those bonded to the baser pursuits of existence. How ironical it is in this sophisticated society that those who are admired and emulated the most are those who are regarded least in traditional societies. These feted plutocrats and bloated merchants, are in what Evola called “normal” societies regarded as crass individuals stuck at the basest levels of existence.

    A prominent example of this is the place of the banker in modern society, who has assumed the role of de facto Lord, otherwise known as the plutocrat. It is the banker and the CEO who live in mansions and run huge estate; who hold court and to whom politicians go as abject servants. It should be kept in mind that in traditional societies, the predecessors of money speculator George Soros, Rothschilds, Rockefellers, et al were regarded as “usurers” and were universally despised. They are the heirs to the squalid little people that Jesus drove out of the Temple because they had made a place of faith into a place of trade: a scenario imbued with much symbolism as the dichotomy between the spiritual and the material outlooks on life (34). Their “profession” was generally outlawed, and the charging of interest on loans was condemned in Holy books as not just a civil or moral crime, but as a sin against God.

    The Medieval epoch adopted its prohibitions against usurers from the Roman and Greek worlds, indicating the antiquity of the contempt for this practice, and the outlook as to how money and profit were perceived. Aristotle described usury as an unnatural use of money. Cato and Seneca regarded usury as on the same level as murder, and St. Jerome adopted the same view. (35) From the Christian viewpoint, as with the Jewish, there was a Biblical condemnation, to the point of sanctioning the death penalty.(37) Jesus had condemned the practise.(37) Unfortunately the Medieval epoch was ambiguous in its attitude and allowed for interest to be charged on loans if the usurer shared equal risk in an endeavour, and we might ask whether this opening provided for the indebtness that was eventually incurred by the aristocracy and allowed money-lenders to buy their way into the “aristocracy” thereby eventually undermining the traditional meaning of the institution and the ethos. The Church however, countered this by encouraging the formation of “poor men’s banks” that offered loans on a non-profit basis, during the 15th century. It is significant that these banks were run throughout Europe, with the exception of England, where they were prohibited by Parliament. While Luther regarded usury as unholy, Calvin regarded it as proper, and by the later half of the 16th century, both Catholic and Protestant theologians were becoming more accepting of money-lending. However in 1745 the papal encyclical Vix Pervenit continued to condemn usury as the official Church position, while Protestantism was generally accepting. Islam opposes usury as a sin, and followed the Aristotelian view, prohibiting ribâ (usury). (38)

    This diversion into the way money and profit were considered in traditional societies is intended to indicate that commerce was far from being regarded as being the pivot of society that it is today.

    Material Wealth and the Subversion of the Cosmic Order

    While “profit” was not even regarded as the primary purpose of work, traditional societies also regarded capital accumulation as morally reprehensible. This was an ethos that was upheld by both pagan religions and the Catholic Church, but that was turned on its head by Protestantism. (39) For example, the Norse Havamal states of wealth that, “He who has money does not suffer need; But saving is a virtue that can be carried to a fault,” (40) and “Full sheepfolds I saw at the rich man’s sons; they now bear the beggar’s staff; Riches are like the wink of an eye, the most fickle of friends.” The Vishnu Purana, one of the most important Hindu texts, is particularly cogent on the traditionalist attitude towards material acquisition that is concomitant with the cycle of decline of a civilization or what the Hindus call the Kali Yuga. The “prophesy” could have been written by Oswald Spengler, or Julius Evola in describing the modern era of Western Civilization. The Vishnu Purana refers to the rise of “impious” rulers, “who shall create many a new mixed caste.” The new rulership would “root out the Kshatriya or martial race,” and “elevate barbarians” and “other castes to power.” The Sudras, the outcasts, and barbarians would occupy lands “under all the contemporary kings [who] will be of churlish spirit” and of “violent temper… always abdicating to falsehood and wickedness,”

    They will destroy women, children and cows; they will seize upon the property of their subjects, will be of limited power; they will rapidly rise and fall; the duration of their life will be very short; they will form high expectations and acquire very little piety. (42)

    This text refers from a Traditionalist perspective to the end cycle of a civilization where faith is replaced by impiety among rulers and ruled, and there is no respect for family and sanctity (women, children and cows). There is also the lamentation of the inversion of castes, this traditional society being replaced by a rulership that includes “a new mixed caste” under “impious” rulers who, having assumed power in the Kali Yuga, lack piety. From a neo-traditionalist viewpoint, the ancient text “prophesies” rather well the condition of modern Western society, where the rulership is devoid of spiritual essence. This “new mixed caste” has formed the ruling class of much of the modern world as an oligarchy, whose worship is what another tradition – related shortly – that of “mammon.” Of the Kali Yuga and its rulership, the Vishnu Puruna goes on to state that, “the people of the countries, they will rule over, will imbibe the same nature.” (43) This accords with the neo-traditionalist view that history is made from above, contra Marx and the materialist historians who claim that it is made by the “masses.” Even the Communist Party was reliant on an elite not only to achieve power by organizing revolutionary cadres, but also in order to maintain authority. There is no mass rebellion by “the people,” as per an anarchist fantasy. Furthermore revolution often occurs at the end cycle of a civilization when the ruling class has become corrupt, decadent, or effete and lacks the will to retain authority. A violent upheaval prefiguring a change for the ruling class might not at all however rely on any mobilization of the “lower classes,” but might only reflect a factional dispute within ruling classes, such as the substitute of the rule of Cromwell for that for the King; which was the victory of the newly emerging merchant class over the traditional order: a coup; manifested in earlier times by the wars between principalities and kingdoms, where the “people,” whether peasants or merchants, did not figure historically at all other than as cannon fodder (or arrow fodder). As far as “the people” are concerned, those of the former peasant and artisan classes have often, again contra Marx, sided with traditional authority against its usurpation, as in the Vendée and Pilgrims of Grace revolts previously referred to. Hence the traditionalist viewpoint, as stated in the Vishnu Puruna, that the people imbibe the ethos of their rulers. The Vishnu Puruna continues to describe the ethos of the Kali Yuga:

    …Wealth (44) and virtue will decrease day by day until the whole world will be depraved. Wealth will be the test of pedigree and virtue; passion will be the only tie of marriage; falsehood will be the only means of success in litigation; and women will be merely the objects of sensual gratification. Earth will be respected for its mineral treasures… external marks will constitute the only distinction of orders and wickedness will be the only means of livelihood. (45)

    With these comments the emphasis is on the castes, or what we today call “classes,” having become based on one’s economic position. “Wealth will be the test of pedigree and virtue.” Jesus said something similar about the Pharisees when public ostentation became a mark of their holiness. (46) The Pharisees were the debased ruler class of Jesus’ time, superficial and soulless, (47) whose wealth was the test of their pedigree; again the analogous nature of traditional outlooks becoming apparent: that of Jesus and that of the Hindu sages describing same phenomena. The externality of class as the indication of one’s status (“external marks will constitute the only distinction of orders”) is allied with the comment of wealth being the test of pedigree, and marks again the distinction between “caste’ in the traditional hierarchy, and “class” in the modern economic hierarchy, which is based on superficial appearance. The other comments in the above sentences will be familiar enough to observers of this current era: falsehood as a means of successful litigation, and women as objections of sensual gratification; both phenomena themselves again being manifestations of money-centered society. Hence the “law” is not regarded as an ethical expression for upholding a culture, but as a means of getting out what one can, generally based around the amount of money one is able to expend. These lamentations on the Kali Yuga repeatedly refer to the domination of matter over spirit and the way every major facet of society is infected:

    …[G]ifts only will constitute virtue; wealth will be the only sign of honesty ; simple ablution will be purification ; mutual consent will be the marriage; a man wearing good clothes will be considered honest and water at a distance will be considered a holy spring…. (48)

    Like the Havamal and the Vishnu Puruna, the Christian Gospels express a traditionalist detestation of the rule of matter by warning that there is a spiritual conflict when economic considerations become the raison de’etre on an individual, social and cultural level. Indeed, there was much about Jesus’ Ministry that was a militant fight against materialism. Paul counselled that Bishops and Deacons of the Church must be “not greedy of filthy lucre.” (49) Paul’s admonitions to the Church are a repudiation of materialism as much as any other traditionalist text. While his comment that “the love of money is the root of all evil” (50) is quite familiar, the passage prior to that warns that the yearning for wealth results in drowning in “destruction and perdition.” (51) The Revelation of John is analogous to the description s of the Kali Yuga in the Vishnu Puruna and that of the Wolf Age/Axe Age described in the Norse Voluspa. (52) One of the primary themes of John is that of a world that is ruled by the lust for what Paul called “filthy lucre;” a system that spreads over the entirety of the Earth, from which no state has escaped. This is a world regime, “Babylon,” upon which the “kings of the earth have committed fornication;” that is, the rulers of the world have sold themselves to this universal system. It is, John made clear, a system based on mercantile values: “…[T] merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.” (53) The epoch John described is that of the end of a civilization that has reached what Spengler called its Winter cycle where money dominates; the same as the Kali Yuga. One does not have to subscribe to the view that John of Patmos was being given a vision directly form Yahweh to recognizing that he was describing the closing cycle of a civilization rooted by greed, putting it into poetical and revelatory terms, rather than as empirical historical analysis as per Spengler. (54) It is furthermore, “end time” or Kali Yugic ruling classes that John is describing; the classes that come to the fore in the late epoch when the traditional hierarchy has been inverted: an “aristocracy of money” rather than an “aristocracy of nobility.”

    One might well wonder whether the Hindu sages or John of Patmos had the benefit of a “Tardis” or a very accurate crystal ball. However, the wise and holy ones of many traditional societies – attuned as they were to the cosmos and conscious of their place in the divine order – were readily able to comprehend the way a society would unfold; not as an upward evolution, but as a downward spiral, after which a cataclysm of destruction would usher forth a new culture that was again in accord with the divine. The wise and holy ones were interpreting the laws of the cosmos in a far more accurate and meaningful way than – in general – our present floundering academics, other than historians who were themselves influenced by this ancient wisdom, such as Oswald Spengler and Julius Evola.

    With the inversion of hierarchy that placed the merchant class as the nexus of a new system, the need to engage in commercial activity whether as a proletarianized peasant or artisan, or an a bourgeoized noble or soldier meant that the former ethos of both the “lower orders” and the military and noble castes were transformed into economic classes that bonded both to an economic system. One recourse was for aristocrats to marry their progeny to the merchants, and conversely merchants received knightly honours, as in the phenomena of the members of the House of Rothschild and others receiving knighthoods, whereas in traditional societies money-lenders were despised. That is the situation that continues to pertain.

    I wouldn’t assume that obeying only one part of the Mosaic Covenant, albeit incorrectly, is going to pacify the Terrible and Mighty God of Israel.

    He wants the whole thing to be obeyed. As we shall see no doubt.
