~ IT’S SOMETIMES SAID that kings & queens cannot be judged as others are. Perhaps. I’d just like to say that if there’s an “I Hate Henry VIII Convention” out there, sign me up. I’ll be there with pre-Reformation bells on.

The early promise of young Harry’s reign led Christian humanist scholars like Erasmus and Thomas More to expect truly great things for England, the Church, for chivalry, for culture and scholarship, and the ‘new age’ of learning and rediscovery of the classical world– especially following the evacuation of scholars and books and ideas from the final fall of Constantinople only 38 years before Henry’s birth. A Springtime for England.

Where Henry VII had been an unpopular miser, his son was a free-spending royal rock-star. This royal was the Obama of his time, except with actual skills, learning, the knightly stuff, and serious potential.

What Actually Came Next

It took time for the ugly to kick in. First the marriage & nasty dynastic problems. Then the creeping protestants. And the ever-ratcheting game of power-politics with Pope & other realms.

So Henry became a tyrant, seeking to use the powerful state-apparatus of the Tudor government to enforce thought, faith, and loyalty to the king as all but infallible neo-pope and supreme authority.

In this way, he was returning to the old Roman model of Emperor as the head of state, and also ‘son of the gods’ to be deified after death: church and state united in one person. Politics & religion collapsed together under Henry VIII, allowing no legal alternative centres of thought and action outside the royal supervision. Welcome to the early modern age, of secret police, secret trials, and punishment for being a good Christian and thinking the King was rather off his nut. Welcome as well to the confiscatory state, where by government fiat, massive amounts of church property and wealth were stolen, and spent as Henry saw fit. All those picturesque ruined abbeys all over the British Isles? Many were the Tudor king’s victims, as he parcelled out goodies to his cronies and minions.

While we tend to think of the Medieval world through the snarky lenses of ‘Enlightenment’ as backward, monolithic and miserable, the actual spiritual, political and cultural universe represented by the Middle Ages in Europe was a startlingly fertile, diverse, and surprisingly lively era– not centred primarily on the state. Indeed the famous battles of papacy versus European royalty were not only turf-wars, but arose from different kinds of power exercised by royalty and the churches. This creative tension gave rise to high medieval culture, art, architecture, music, politcal development, and makes us in part who we are today.

The protestant revolution was not a grassroots thing throughout England, and as late as Shakespeare and onwards, people were being fined for not going to protestant worship, or harbouring Jesuits; Catholic priests and missionaries were being hunted like animals; and the long arm of the state was enforcing belief and loyalty in local communities and churches.


300 years after Henry, Karl Marx scribbled away in the London Library, laying out his horrible inhuman dreams of the perfect Communist society, to be born in Britain– but the oppressive features of the modern state as we know and hate it owe much to Henry VII and his children, and had already been born in the homeland of modern democracy.

His betrayal of God & his faith, wives, oaths and promises, friends, his nation & people– these were of one piece in a soul drunk with power, will, and making himself a kind of god on earth. So the protestant England which grew from the shattered ruins of England’s 1200+ years of faith was enforced by the police state, creating prejudice, division, destruction, and laying the roots of endless civil wars and disruptions even into the 18th century and beyond.

Signs of Guilt– But Not

One of the most telling efforts by Henry to erase the Catholic past of England was his deliberate destruction of the shrine & remains of Saint Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. That former right-hand man, friend & chancellor of the bullying Henry II became Archbishop of Canterbury, and an inveterate enemy of encroaching royal power against the church. In 1538, not 3 years after Henry had his former friend and right hand man & Chancellor Thomas More imprisoned and later beheaded for not bending the knee to Henry as supreme ruler of church and state. So Thomas died “the king’s good servant, but God’s first.” One can imagine the sharp resonance of Thomas Becket and a former King was painful to a guilty if corrupted conscience, and so the desecration ensued.

The truth will out– and Henry VIII was a villain of history, treacherous and bloated. In the 1800s when the crypt was opened where he and Charles I (beheaded by protestants) and Jane Seymour lay, it was found that his coffin had burst open, due to the gasses released from his massive corpse. The spiritual and political pressures which he unleashed on the world are with us still today. There’s no such thing as a “past” past.

Hery VIII stands as a warning to all of us about good intentions versus results, and what our fallen and imperfect human nature is capable of; and a cautionary tale for all leaders about becoming the enemy of the very people they promised under God to cherish and protect. ~

Sniff– Progressives Have It Tough

~ ITEM: Brutalist Buildings

~ ITEM: OBAMA– Leaving out God?

~ ITEM: Making Men without Chests: The Intellectual Life and Moral Imagination

~ ASIDE FROM the fact that progressivism is a doomed-to-fail war against reality & human nature.. it’s also hard to get the peasants all lined up neatly to obey the master-plan, and execute it. So hard to get good minions!

That explains in part the simultaneous pity-party and bullying attitude of the UnAmerican Regime now controlling the United States, and striving to cripple the future wealth and development of America. Obama is both symbol and agent, representing that elitist strain of technocrats and snobs who know better than everyone ever anywhere– despite the remarkable lack of real-world experience in the White House and environs, and the ever-mounting piles of FAIL in results.

So Neat & Clean!

It’s a heady rush to bulldoze and pave and make everything neat & clean– except for the clear-cutting and wrecking and ignoring of how things might have developed in a more human and natural way. Obama reminds me not so much of those bizarrely ornate Stalinist-era buildings in Moscow, but rather those brutalist concrete excretions favoured by our architectural betters in the middle of the last century. Brutal, ugly, all function without beauty or relation to the environment.. and deliberately so. It’s as if Albert Speer’s Berlin giant flak towers had roamed the post-war world crapping ever bigger and uglier copies all over the place.

People like the ruling Czars & Obama elites are frightening not just because of what they are doing, but what they are. They are like madman philosopher Nietzsche’s soulless last men, worshipping power and will; or perhaps C.S. Lewis’ Men Without Chests: morally and spiritually empty, ready to serve the next messiah or ideology to come along. Obama is a hollow-man, and not the glory of God in a man fully alive.

Roots Of Rots

There is a spiritual and moral vacuum eating at the heart of Western politics and society– voting Obama out in 2012, or getting a real opposition in Canada, or deconstructing the EU super-bureaucracy would be a start, but no cure. Indeed, the very longing for cure, the control of suffering and imperfection and ambiguity– that is part of the fevered illness, not a healthy state for the world, our societies, or souls.

Heaven on earth always involves crushing people, and some people exercising supreme power over the rest of us– for our own good. Sadly, whilst modern super-masters like Napoleon and Hitler and Stalin and Mao may be well dead and gone, the current era is more of the same, worse and prettied up in smooth talk and glittering images.

Are we willing to awaken? To act and suffer the death of lies, illusions, and treasured hopes? Are we willing to understand that we cannot of ourselves save ourselves? ~

Ultimate Warrior Redux

~ ITEM: The offical website; the UW Blog

~ BACK IN THE DAY (1980s) I was a huge fan of the WWF, especially The Ultimate Warrior (a.k.a. James Brian Hellwig).

Turns out he’s now a blogger concerned about political issues, and one of the actual good guys, and not a sell-out to wrestlingdom, nor the temptations of fame and money and ‘roid rage.

How odd is that? ~

Evil Glenn Beck?

~ ITEM: Glenn Beck Part 1 – “Two Plus Two = Five.” 9/22/2010. Part 2, part 3

~ ITEM: Anthony Weiner’s Unfathomable Abuse of Power: Witchhunt – Criminalizing Glenn Beck and Gold

~ ITEM: MARK SHEA ON the astonishing collapse of alleged “conservative” engagement with the western intellectual tradition

~ ITEM: Bill Press: Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh and O’Reilly Are Cowards – Never Allow Opposing Views

~ ITEM: Hillary Clinton’s “Clean Cookstoves” Announcement, Explained

~ SOME FOLKS get very bent out of shape by Glenn Beck. Not this elf.

He may be a bit much, and his followers over-keen, his shtick not all that it might be– but he’s a good educator for what he knows & learns, and trouble-sniffer and explainer of basic ideas, realities and the headlines.

As a popularizer, he is spending his life trying to help Americans understand their country, the antics of the Demoblicans, and possible troubles ahead. That’s why DC hates him: he’s agin the masterplans, business as usual and coruption– and uses the words and events of the day to help ordinary folks understand their times.

The power of lies, denial, not paying attention, busyness & stress, the glowing screens with which we put ourselves to sleep? Glenn Beck is an unwelcome sort of political prophetic voice. In 20th century parlance, ‘prophetic’ has come to mean radical Marxists tearing things apart and complaining about non-Marxist civilization– but the Biblical prophets spoke in God’s name of justice & judgment; choices and consequences; wake-up calls before it’s too late.

The media, big government, the Professional Left– together with their counterparts on the power-hungry right– all all about milking us cows and keeping us quiet and stupid. Hence the vicious attacks on Beck, as a national whistle-blower.

Mark Shea offers cautions about shallow Beckery, and that it isn’t a full meal deal for Catholic Christians and classical liberals (otherwise known as right-wingers, or conservatives). Fair enough: but perhaps it’s a part of the big picture worth keeping in mind– along with Great Books wisdom, grounded in the sorts of things Mark Shea and other political moderates are worried about.

Just sayin, is all. ~

Browser-Wars: Free Geekery

~ ITEM: Chrome Vs. Iron

~ ITEM: How and Why Chrome Is Overtaking Firefox Among Power Users

~ THE BINKS is a long-time FireFox user (blame uber-geek Binks-Dad for that.. heck, for the whole internet thing), and an unconvert from buggy & viral MS-Exploder. There’s the Apple’s Safari browser, but Google Chrome has some enthusiasts, too. Only thing is– Google wants to rule the planet, and their spyware/ browser “phones home” to GoogleCorp to let them know all about your browsing habits. Creeptacular, huh?

The Google Supremacy should be worrisome to anybody serious about privacy, web-freedom, and the corporate threat of increasing ‘supervision’ of the internet.

Here Come the Nerds!

Now the Geekisphere has come up with a de-creepified Chrome, called Iron. It downloaded quickly, easy install, and was up and running in a moment. Minimalist, fast browsing with no Google looking over your shoulder!

And then? Sorry.. I lost track of what I was writing because Iron is so fast, easy to use, and bug-free. And not letting Google mind my business, either. ~

Jihad 4.0

“The first and last principle of Islam is that “there is no God but God.” Sounds like a tautology, but the purpose is to emphasize the absolute distance between God and man (which is why Trinity would be unthinkable in Islam, much less Incarnation). Instead of being a unity in love, man and God are only “unified” to the extent that the former utterly abases himself before the latter by surrendering to the Law (Islam, of course, means “surrender”). There is obedience, but not what we would call love.”
